  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (12)

    • Martin: You know I am the creative consultant on this show. Which means that nothing should happen creatively without me being consulted. Jack: We consulted ya. You just didn't listen. Martin: You know what he worked on before this? A show about a talking dog that solves crimes. So what if they had a hundred episodes. Jack: Poochinski? Martin: Yes, Poochinski. Jack: Great show.

    • (SG-1 watches the fall preview for "Wormhole X-treme") Daniel: Well, that looked... familiar. Jack: I don't see it.

    • Teal'c: This crew does not seem to appreciate the traditional food of Chulak.

    • Mr. Bocher: I'm Christian Bocher, portraying the character of Raymond Gunn, who portrays the character of Dr. Levant, which is based on the character Daniel Jackson portrayed by the actor Michael Shanks, originally portrayed by the actor James Spader in the feature film.

    • Jack: That would be classified. Nick: Oh, I like that. Sort of like a yes, but really a no.

    Notes (14)

    • In-joke: At the end of the episode, where Raymond Gunne/Dr. Levant is getting knocked down by all the rocks, is a inside joke to the episode "Need" where Daniel is severely injured by rocks falling on him.

    • This episode marks the first appearance of Agent Malcolm Barrett (Peter Flemming) in the series.

    • Colonel Danning has two scars in one of his eyebrows. According to director DeLuise, this is a direct joke/reference to Jack, who only has one scar on the opposite eyebrow.

    • The item the prop-master is holding is an alien gun, specifically the one used by Togar in the episode "Urgo."

    • The red kiwi fruit discussion is a reference to when DeLuise directed "Beneath the Surface" and insisted "Okay, we need something alien in the scene, so we'll get some fruit in; but we can't have kiwis on an alien planet, so why don't we spray paint them red."

    Trivia (3)

    • When Yolanda Reese/Stacy Monroe comes up to the director of Wormhole X-Treme!, she asks him how she could be "out of phase" yet not fall through the floor. This is a joke to the season 3 episode "Crystal Skull" where Daniel is "out of phase" yet he can walk on the floor and stand against walls without going right through them.

    • Trivia: When Col. O'Neill is talking to Martin about where Martin gets his ideas, there is an Asgard model being worked on in the background of the conversation.

    • In-Joke: Marty says to the director of Wormhole Extreme (in the dead aliens scene where all the aliens are shot twice), acted by Peter DeLuise,"then 3 shots disintegrates him!". DeLuise retorts - "that is, quite possibly,the stupidest thing I've ever heard you say". This is an in-joke for Johnathan Glassner who made up the zat gun rules (one-shot stuns etc.,) much to the annoyance of Brad Cooper who has had to live with it ever since.

    Allusions (3)

    • Transporter When Tanner and the others beam up to their ship at the end, the beam pattern and color is the same as that of the original Star Trek transporter beam.

    • Story Concept According to the producers and as is pretty clear, this episode, with the idea of a "real" s.f. crew and their TV counterparts, was inspired by the movie Galaxy Quest.

    • Alien Princess: It's been many bleems.... Bleems were the unit of time used in the sci-fi comedy Mork and Mindy which aired from 1978 untill 1983 on ABC.The series starred Robin Williams as Mork, an alien who had come to Earth from the planet Ork, and Pam Dawber as Mindy, his human comedic foil.
