  • Quotes (14)

    • (Reading from wall of ancient writing) Sam: "At mid day the darkness is high in the sky." Are you sure about that. Jacob: That is what it says. Sam: It doesn't make much sense. Jacob: Yeah well neither does, ah, "the wind blows on the pillow" or "three days till the chicken" But that's what they translate into.

    • RepliCarter: It would be much easier on both of us if you did not resist. Daniel: Why, why, why, why in the whole wide world of all things rational and sane would I help you? RepliCarter: Because deep down you also want the knowledge I seek. Daniel: Yes, but the problem is that anything I learn I won't be able to put to much use because right after I'm done you're going to kill me.

    • Jack: You know the Goa'uld and their egos.

    • Sam: (Thor) says he will drop by as soon as his consciousness has been downloaded from the ship's computers into a new body. Jack: That just never gets old, does it? Sam: Apparently not.

    • Sam: Jaffa from all over the galaxy are joining with them. Jack: Well, viva la revolution!

    • Sam: You know, you blow up one sun and everyone expects you to walk on water... next up, parting the Red Sea! Referencing the abilities Jesus and Moses displayed in Christian and Judaian Bibles, where Jesus walked on water to display his abilities to the people of Jeruselum, and where Moses parted the Red Sea which allowed the Jewish slaves to reach safety from their oppressors.
