  • So SG1 messed up the timeline now the Alternate SG1 has to fix the mistakes that they made 1,000's of years ago, sorta. Sam and Daniel are called apon to figure this mess out. Even tho' they are different, they are still Sam and Daniel.

  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (13)

    • Sam: I don't really like guns. Jack: (sarcastic) Neither do I. How do you feel about explosives? Sam: Those I like a little bit better.

    • Hammond: Have either one of you even fired a weapon of any kind? Sam: Unless you count launching a rocket.

    • Jack: Any idea what to expect? Sam: Not really. According to the tape, we're going to be demolecularized, transmitted over two thousand light years through subspace, and then, uh, rematerialized on the other side. Kawalsky: I did not need to know that!

    • Hammond: ...under no circumstances is it to be used to travel through time. Understood? Jack: Yes sir. Hammond: Never in my life would I have imagined giving that order.

    • Sam: Didn't that tape say there were no fish in your pond? Jack: Close enough.

    Notes (10)

    • Amanda Tapping was pregnant during this episode. You can tell by her awkward stride. The crew had everyone wear gear that made them look puffy.

    • This episode won a Leo Award for Best Costume Design in a Dramatic Series.

    • In the scenes involving the jumper, the desert set being used in the filming is the exact same set used in the Stargate Atlantis episode: "The Defiant One" season one episode 12, in which Sheppard's team is sent to investigate a downed Wraith ship on a desert planet.

    • So Peter Williams wouldn't have to shave his head again for his brief appearance, the headdress that Apophis is wearing was specially designed to cover up Peter's hair.

    • Daniel was the only one alive in Egypt, and he died in the alternate timeline, so he did not go back in time again.

    Trivia (9)

    • In the original timeline, Kawalsky and Jack are both in the Air Force and served together prior to the SGC. In the alternate timeline (approx 1.5 minutes in), Kawalsky's uniform reads U.S. Marines, while the rest of the men in the briefing are wearing Air Force uniforms.

    • First Prime Teal'c managed to pick out the camera from all of O'Neill and company's gear despite never having encountered Tau'ri technology before in this timeline.

    • When the puddle jumper cloaks in the desert, there is no visible trace of it. There should have been indentations in the sand where it landed.

    • Trivia: The ending of this episode is almost identical to the ending of the season 8 episode "Threads," with Jack finally getting the rest of SG-1 to go fishing with him.

    • It is cleary established here that Daniel's eyesight is poor without his glasses on. Yet in "Moebius, Part 1" he specifically takes his glasses off when he's watching the tape found at the Giza excavations.

    Allusions (2)

    • Jack: Close enough. At the end of the episode when SG-1 finally returns to their own time hoping things are back to normal, Sam notices that Jack's pond which was supposed to be barren, now has a fish in it. She points out this little disparity which Jack shrugs off commenting "close enough." In Jack's favorite show The Simpsons, there was an episode ("Treehouse Of Horror V") in which Homer time-travels, and after attempting to set things right, returns to his own time to finally find things back to normal, almost. He shrugged that off saying "close enough."

    • Alternate Daniel: Well, it's a ship, it goes through the Gate, so... This conversation is very similar to the one on the Stargate Atlantis episode "Rising, Part 2." In both cases McKay thinks the name is "cool".
