  • Quotes (8)

    • Anteaus: Maybe one day you will learn, that your way, is not the only way.

    • Anteaus: I will take you to your doorway. Jack: Whoah! Daniel: You understand what I'm saying. Anteaus: It took time to learn your speech. Sam: Not much time.

    • Teal'c: It appears they possess a form of technology far greater than that of the Goa'uld. Sam: They looked so helpless. Daniel: And now they're going to bury the Stargate and we can never come back. We should have listened. Jack: "The very young do not always do as they're told." It's a little something the Nox told me one time. Something worth taking home.

    • Jack: Wasn't I just...? Daniel: Killed. Jack: Killed as in... Daniel: Dead. Jack: Dead. Sam: Yeah, we know. We saw it happen. Same thing happened to us. Jack: Well, this is a surprise, then.

    • Jack: So Shak'l thinks we're unarmed, Apophis thinks he's invulnerable.. Daniel: And they're right.. I think I've detected the flaw in your plan.

    Trivia (8)

    • Trivia: The Nox are one of the four advanced races (along with the Ancients, Asgard, and Furlings) who used to meet on P3X-972, the planet where Ernest Littlefield was marooned since 1945. See "The Torment of Tantalus" for more information.

    • Trivia: SG-5 went to P3C-117.

    • Trivia: Up to this episode the SGC have visited 20 separate worlds, (including the Nox homeworld), since the establishment of the Stargate Command.

    • About halfway through the episode, you can see that Daniel's team patch has a narrow, gray-colored "1," like is used for the rest of the series. However, in the last scene at the Stargate, it's easy to see that he now has a different patch, this one with a thick, black "1," as was used in earlier episodes.

    • One of Apophis' Jaffa refers to the Stargate as such instead of "the Chappa'ai".
