  • Quotes (2)

    • Jack: Listen, could somebody bottomline this for me? Fraiser: Well, sir, we could be looking at evidence that human beings evolved long before we thought they did. Sam: And maybe not originally on this planet. Jack: Darwin would be crushed.

    • Jack: Doh! Teal'c: What is it, O'Neill? Jack: I forgot to tape 'The Simpsons'. (Teal'c stares) It's important to me.

    Notes (3)

    • The clothing that all the characters wear throughout the episode all appear to have their "The North Face" logos slightly blurred whenever they would be fully visible to the camera.

    • The people in the base are all wearing "The North Face" brand clothing, on which the logo is clearly visible in most shots.

    • Syndication airdate: October 19, 2003.

    Trivia (1)

    • When Dr. Fraiser is about to peel back the "right sleeve that is covering the face", you can see the cloth move, like there's a head under it.

    Allusions (2)

    • Jack: Darwin would be crushed. This refers to Charles Darwin's (1809-82) book, On The Origin Of Species (1859), where he introduced the theory that populations evolve over the course of generations through a process of natural selection. This theory explaining this phenomenon through natural and sexual selection is central to the modern understanding of evolution.

    • Jack: Doh! Richard Dean Anderson is a huge fan of The Simpsons and, once again references it.

      While I miss the character of Daniel Jackson, I feel that Jonas is doing a decent stand-in, particularly in this show I feel is the first time he comes on his own. I've always felt this type of character has what has attracted me to sci-fi shows, the one who ends up being ethical/moral voice for the consequences of the sci-fi technology we encounter/possess particularly in a military context. In this regard, I think of the Jack O'Neill character as mostly insipid---the concept of "military intelligence" takes on a new meaning with him. In that same vein, the Samantha Carter character is quite refreshing and it's a good thing she sides with Jackson on many issues. I've been watching every episode of Stargate SG1 since the beginning and this is where I am currently. I'm a huge Star Trek/Star Wars fan and after watching every episode and movie of those repeatedly I turned to othershows. I finished Battlestar Galactica (the new one) completely (except for Caprica) which was a little too dark for me. My wite hates Stargate SG1 (we are watching Once Upon a Time and The Walking Dead together) and in general doesn't think much of the Star Trek/Star Wars type of military sci-fi (the only exception is Starship Troopers).
