  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (12)

    • Bra'tac: I hope to save him. Daniel: By killing him? Bra'tac: If necessary. Jack: See, I think we disagree on the meaning of the word "save".

    • Teal'c: I once again pledge to you my allegiance, and ask your forgiveness for succumbing to the will of Apophis. Jack: Well, he did have you sort of over a barrel, you being dead and all.

    • Teal'c: You appear to be well. Jack: Well, forget appearances. The back's gone, the knee is shot... forget curling.

    • Teal'c: Your words cannot change the truth. Daniel: Well, they're not my words, Teal'c, they're yours. Of course, you were wrong at the time, because he was not actually dead.

    • Daniel: You must remember, at some point, questioning your faith. Teal'c: Never! Apophis is a god. Daniel: False god... Dead false god.

    Notes (4)

    • Scenes that flash through Teal'c's mind at the end of the Rite of Malshuraan include shots from "Family," "Singularity," "Bane," "Holiday," "Crossroads," "1969," "Children of the Gods," "Bloodlines," "The Gamekeeper" and "The Serpent's Lair."

    • Peter DeLuise cameo: when Hammond and O'Neil are discussing Teal'c's condition from the overhead room, the candles form the reflected initials "PD" on the glass.

    • Syndication air date: September 22, 2002.

    • Footage from "Children of the Gods (2)" is used for Teal'c's memories. The only actors to appear in both that episode and this one, besides the regulars, are Peter Williams (Apophis) and Eric Schneider (Dr. MacKenzie.)

    Trivia (3)

    • Teal'c clearly said "Valar" but Daniel thought he said "velour" which sounds quite different. Daniel is an accomplished linguist so it seems odd that he would get it wrong.

    • When Bra'tac pulls the Goa'uld out of Teal'c, it looks like a mature Goa'uld, being colored brown, black, and grey. We know from past episodes that Jaffa cannot survive with an adult symbiote and that larval Goa'ulds are milky white colored. Later we even see the milky white colored Goa'uld in an aquarium in the background of Teal'c's hospital room.

    • When Jack says to Hammond "I'm sure if Teal'c were here, he'd approve", General Hammond's skill badges were in the wrong order. The Command pilot wings were on the bottom and the Space and Missile badge was on top. But in every other episode the Pilot wings are on top and the Space & Missile badge is on the bottom.
