  • Quotes (21)

    • Martin: For the longest time I was obsessed with all those alien conspiracies: crop circles, cow mutilations, the Apollo cover-up. Jack: I thought the lunar landings were a hoax? Martin: No. That was a story created by the government to direct attention from the real cover-up. Everybody knows that!

    • Martin: I'm surprised a man in your position wouldn't take more precautions to maintain your cover. Jack: Marty, I'm not under cover.

    • Daniel: This, uh, doesn't really look like anybody's place of work. There's no one here. Sam: (turns around) Except for the guys with guns…

    • Man: What about this? (shows a thermal image of a symbiote) Daniel: Ohh that’s very good. Did you draw that yourself? Sam: What is it? Daniel: That’s a duck, isn’t it?

    • (Marty is laying on ground) Teal’c: In hindsight, perhaps we should have given him his medication, O’Neill.

    • When the SGC crew is at Martin's pod, the technical sergeant who's doing the resonance scan on the pod, seems to know that it's an alien ship. Yet later, when he returns from examining the pod, Teal'c deliberately hides his tattoo, as if the man isn't supposed to know that he's Jaffa. But if the man knows about alien lifepods, why then doesn't he know about Teal'c?

    • It is not revealed how Martin learned such specific information about the SGC, such as Jack's name, its location and its phone number.

    • As Teal'c is pulling Marty out of the van, you can briefly see the mic's shadow on the door.

    • One of the Stargate symbols that Martin wrote down doesn't match the address dialed when Martin returned to his homeworld.
