  • Quotes (10)

    • Jonas: It's just that it's my first time... in space. We'd only begun to consider the possibility of space travel. To actually be out here is... amazing. Teal'c: Indeed. Jack: Until something goes horribly wrong.

    • (as Sam attempts to activate the forcefield) Jack: No pressure, we have a lot of time. Teal'c: On the contrary, O'Neill... Jack: (glares at Teal'c) Lots and lots of time...

    • Jack: (He and Sam are about to drown in freezing water) Next time we crash our brand-new mothership, let’s crash it in warmer water! Sam: Actually, sir, at this depth the temperature is the same. Jack: Shallower, then! Shallower! Sam: Yes, sir!

    • Jonas: I mean, those of us who weren't originally from the planet Earth gotta stick together, right? Teal'c: Are you suggesting an alien conspiracy?

    • (Sam took the crystal with Thor's mind in it) Sam: Here he is. Jack: Are you sure you got all of him in there? He's a smart guy you know...

    Notes (3)

    • The scene with Jack and Sam drowning in the corridor was shot at Vancouver's Olympic pool. The set was slowly submerged in the pool, creating the illusion of rising water.

    • Syndication airdate: October 12, 2003.

    • Peter DeLuise cameo: Lt. Dagwood. His character has experience with Deep Submergence Rescue Vehicles - not coincidentally, DeLuise played Dagwood in the show seaQuest DSV.

    Trivia (3)

    • When Jack and Carter are trapped in the corridor, the water can be seen covering Sam's gun in one shot, and in the next shot the water level is lower.

    • As Jonas is about to save the day, he is standing outside the room with the control panel. The door is opening slowly and water is rushing in. The door opens almost all the way before Jonas goes under water. At this point the camera POV changes to underwater where the door is only open about a foot.

    • While Jonas and Teal'c are talking in the cargo ship, Teal'c says that they are Jonas' first mission, but at the end of Redemption (2), SG-1 left on a mission of some sort through the Stargate. Since cargo ships cannot carry Stargates and they began the episode in one, this must be at least his second mission.

    Allusions (1)

    • The Simpsons Jack uses quotes from the popular and long running animated sitcom The Simpsons twice. On seeing the Goa'uld mothership, he uses "Ahoy-hoy" and on sitting in Anubis' command chair he utters an "Excellent." Both of these are in the style of Simpsons villain Montgomery Burns.
