  • Quotes (17)

    • Landry: So, how did it go? Mitchell: Absolutely incredible, sir. You can forget about the Ori; with an act like that Sam'll be headlining in Vegas. Sam: Okay, stop.

    • Vala: I've read the book. I've read it. I understand why you think it's so important. The words give you comfort, and at face value, it appears to be as if they're trying to inspire the best out of people... it appears... Tomin: "...he called out to prophet in fear, but the prophet said..." Vala: (continuing over his words) ...honesty, morality... Tomin: "It's you who have changed. Step across if you truly... " Vala: This whole crusade is a manipulation. Nothing in there says that those who don't believe should be massacred. Tomin: (continues reading) "So Markon prayed for forgiveness and took the first step...." Vala: Where does it say that, Tomin? Where does it say that? Tomin: (continues reading) "And the hands of the Ori enveloped... " Vala: The Ori are not gods. (Tomin slaps her)

    • Mitchell: Score one for science.

    • Vala: (to Tomin) I know I'll never convince you - but everything you believe is a lie.

    • Mitchell: Listen up. Pull this, aim there, squeeze that. (hands gun to villager and gets him firing) All right, yeah. Just make sure this end is pointed away from you and anyone else you don’t want to kill.

    Trivia (2)

    • When Vala is beamed down to the planet, the village materializes and then Mitchell asks if the Ori ship is gone. Shouldn't they make sure it's gone before rematerializing the village? If the Ori sees them, they'll just fire again.

    • Trivia: Carter's password is "fishing". This is likely a reference to Jack O'Neill's love of fishing.

    Allusions (1)

    • Sam: Doh! This is a reference to O'Neill's love of The Simpsons. This line was often used by O'Neill but is more well known as being used by Homer Simpson.
