  • Quotes (13)

    • Sam: Are we done?
      Dr. Fraiser: Yes. Make sure you come back if you start speaking an alien language.
      Sam: I'm sure I'll have no choice.

    • Daniel: I could probably date its construction, compare it to the rest of the structures using some sort of carbon analysis. Jack: How long? Daniel: For what? Jack: All of it. How long? Daniel: Uh, days weeks, months of meticulous tedious boring tediousness.

    • Jack: I gotta pee. Sam: Yes sir.

    • (Orlin gives Sam an emerald) Sam: You made it? Orlin: You wouldn't believe the things you can make from the common, simple items lying around your planet. Which reminds me, you're going to need a new microwave.

    • Sam: I'm just saying, if the alien had the ability and desire to show himself only to me, it would probably be better if I gathered as much information as I could, possibly even find a way of isolating it, before I officially mentioned it again, right? Jack: Probably. Yes. (both nod heads, Jack points to washroom) I gotta pee.

    • John de Lancie (Frank Simmons) who played Q on The Next Generation is the fifth "Star Trek" regular/recurring role to appear on the show as of this episode. He was preceded by Armin Shimerman (Anteaus) in "The Nox", who played Quark on Deep Space Nine, Dwight Shultz (The Keeper) in "The Gamekeeper", who played Lieutenant Barclay on The Next Generation, Rene Auberjonois (Alar) in "The Other Side", who played Odo on Deep Space Nine, and Marina Sirtis (Dr. Svetlana Markov) in "Watergate", who played Counselor Deanna Troi on The Next Generation.

    • This episode marks the first appearance of Colonel Frank Simmons (John de Lancie) on the series.

    • The house shown in this episode was originally going to be Dr. Fraiser's house instead of Carter's.

    • This is the first time in the series that you get to see Major Carter's house

    Trivia (4)

    • Carter's birthday is revealed to be in May. (Orlin gives her an emerald, stating it's her birthstone. Emerald is May's birthstone.) This contradicts the information in "Entity" when they pull up a data file that says Sam's D.O.B. is 10/17/65.

    • After Carter closes the door on O'Neill and Teal'c, she sets the pizza down and opens the door where Orlin is hiding. For one brief moment, you can see someone standing at the outside window of the room looking in from the porch. I believe it is probably Christopher Judge but the image is pretty fleeting.

    • In this episode, General Hammond's skill badges were reversed. The Command Pilot wings were below the Space and Missile badge but in almost all the other episodes, the pilot wings are on top.

    • Jack says he has never seen Star Wars, but in the episode "1969", when they are captured, he identifies himself to his interrogator as "Luke Skywalker". (Editor's note - you don't have to have seen the movie to know about the character and know he has something to do with science fiction, though.)

    • Teal'c: Star Wars. Star Wars is a franchise of science fantasy films created by George Lucas. The six-film series started in 1977 with the release of Star Wars, and has since become a pop culture phenomenon, spawning books, video games, television series, and other merchandise.
