    • Daniel: How's the new job? Jack: Oy! One crisis after another. This morning, the mess got a shipment of Yukon Gold potatoes instead of the usual Russets. Daniel: No! Jack: Oh yes! The Golds don't make for good mash, consistency's all wrong. Sam: I hear the new Russian Colonel came to see you, made a pitch to join SG-1. Jack: Yeah. Daniel: What did you say? Jack: Told 'em to make french fries instead.

    • Daniel: Can I come in? Jack: You're not supposed to be walking around Daniel:'s my arm... Jack: You were shot! Daniel: I know, you shot me Jack: Not the point...

    • Daniel: We let the Ancients handle (Anubis). Jack: Yes, because they've always been so good at it.

    • Jack: You'd think getting blasted out of orbit would slow (Anubis) down.

    • (Daniel wakes up in the infirmary with a sling on his arm) Daniel: Could someone tell me what the hell is going? SGC Doctor: You're recovering from a gunshot wound Daniel: What?!! Teal'C: You have no recollection of the incident? Daniel : No! Who shot me? Jack: Don't change the subject. What do you remember? Daniel: I went to see Col. Vaselov and in the middle of our conversation he collapsed and I went to help him and... that's it. Sam: You don't remember accompanying him to the infirmary? Daniel: No! Who shot me? (Sam and Teal'C nod their heads and point their eyes towards Jack) Jack: You were shooting the gate room- Sam: -and wounded two guards.

    Notes (2)

    • Despite being the SGC's chief medical officer, this is the only episode of Season Eight in which Dr. Brightman (Alisen Down) appears.

    • Aaron Pearl (Major Kearney) previously played the younger version of Hammond in the 2nd season episode "1969."

    Trivia (2)

    • Carter says that "there's nothing in regulations that says an SG team has to be made up of 4 people", to which Jack looks surprised and relieved. However, he already knew this information because he asked Hammond this same question almost exactly two years ago in season 6's "Redemption (1)" in reference to replacing Daniel (with Jonas). It seems unlikely he would have forgotten.

    • How was Carter able to shut down the self destruct? It's always needed two ranking officers to shut down. If she managed to shut it down another way, then it would not be a very effective self destruct, and would have been overridden by the Replicators and other aliens, not to mention that other times when the self destruct has been set (Prisoners), Sam would have been able to shut it down.
