Season 10 Episode 15


Aired Friday 8:00 PM May 11, 2007 on Syfy



  • Trivia

    • The Goa'uld hand weapon, that the female assassin uses against Daniel, is the same weapon that Martouf used to threaten the president, in the season four episode "Divide and Conquer."

    • When Mitchell is being attacked on the transport Teal'c says that he will ring over to help him, Mitchell responds, but Teal'c never touched his radio.

    • Dr. Lee's experimental plasma weapon appeared to be powered by a small naqhadah generator. Since naquadah is not native to the Earth and is only procurable through the stargate, naquadah generator technology is still highly classified and the weapon should have been powered by something else if it is being shown to the public.

    • When Teal'c is attacked the first time (at the DHD) and he starts to shoot back; his staff is closed when it fires (as seen from the front). However it is open when viewed from behind, and when he stops shooting.

  • Quotes

    • Darell: (about Amy) Oh, Cam always had a thing for her.
      Vala: Really?
      Darell: Guy could've had any girl he wanted in the whole school, but every time she'd walk by, he'd start stammering like an idiot.

    • Vala: (about the reunion) Traditionally these events entail the bringing together of large groups of people all with a common bond in past but nothing really in common in the present. Everybody evaluates each other's lot in life generally by virtue of a combination of material wealth and the attractiveness of one's date, spouse, life partner.

    • Mitchell: (laughing) So, Mr. Armstrong, he walks into the classroom and sees his car-- the whole car--sitting in the middle of the room. It's got a fresh coat of wax, it's looking all brand new.
      Darrel: We all thought he was gonna drop dead from heart failure right there on the floor.
      Vala: And then what happened?
      Darrel: Well, that's it. I mean, we had to take the car back out and put it together again, but…
      Vala: If I understand you correctly, you had to completely disassemble and then reassemble this automobile not once but twice?

    • Darrel: You know what? I think Mitchell is crazy for ditching you. I mean, God, look at you! You're a beautiful women, you have a keen mind, you shoot like a Special Forces sniper…
      Vala: True, all true.
      Darrel: But, you can be a little scary, though.

    • Vala: (calling out) Cameron, we have to get moving.
      Mitchell: Go wait in the car!
      Vala: (to Mitchell's parents) I exaggerated the spiritual bond thing just a little.
      Mr. Mitchell: Yeah, yeah, we got that.

    • Mitchell: Intel looks good; we've got ourselves a space train full of evil Orville Redenbacher.

    • Jackie: I can't remember. Did you go to GW?
      Vala: Oh, I didn't attend school. As much as I was sold as a domestic servant to a weapons smuggler named Firenze. After I killed him and won my freedom I considered my education more or less complete.
      Jackie: (nervously) Well, it was sure nice to meet you.

    • Amy: (about Vala) She seems nice. You two make a good couple.
      Mitchell: Oh, no we don't.

    • Mitchell: (about Amy) She's a nice girl. I like her.
      Vala: Nice? She's a cure for insomnia.
      Mitchell: Well, we can't all make the brilliant decisions you made. How many times have you been married, anyway?
      Vala: Legally? Um, well, it's hard to keep track.

    • Female Assassin: You should have gone with my first option, Doctor Jackson, it would have been far less painf... (gets run over by a bus)

    • Mrs. Mitchell: Well then I take it you two are quite...
      Mr. Mitchell: ...serious?
      Vala: Oh, absolutely. Well, I mean at first it was just sex sex sex in all rooms of the house at all times of the day, but once we got a chance to get to know each other we formed a deeper connection. A spiritual bond, you might say.

    • Vala: Darrel, there's something I think I'm suppose to tell you now.
      Darrel: What?
      Vala: I'm married.
      Darrel: Aw, you're kidding!
      Vala: Something I don't like to talk about much... he's a religious zealot bent on total domination of every human being in this galaxy.
      Darrel: So you're separated?

    • Mrs. Mitchell: Here's some extra towels. The spare bedrooms all made up.
      Mitchell: All right, great. Where do you want me to sleep?
      Mrs. Mitchell: Well I thought that you two would.
      Mitchell: No, Mom, that's okay.
      Mrs. Mitchell: It's all right dear, I'm not as old-fashioned as you think.
      Mitchell: What?
      Mrs. Mitchell: You know, sometimes I think Cam finds it convenient to forget that I grew up in the '60s. I could tell you some stories.
      Mitchell: No, Mom! No! Mother please, we don't want to hear your stories...
      Vala: I do.
      Mitchell: No!
      Mrs. Mitchell: We'll talk later.

    • Mitchell: No doubt about it. There is blood in the water. Only question is, which enterprising shark will be the first to take advantage of it?

    • Daniel: And you might have gotten away with it too if it wasn't for us meddling kids.

  • Notes

    • The shot of the cargo ship heading for Earth is a re-use from the season five episode "Fail Safe."

    • Excerpts written by: Robert C. Cooper, Ron Wilkerson

    • Once again the DeLuise family have a significant influence over a Stargate SG-1 episode. Directed by Peter DeLuise, this episode numbers amongst its stars his wife Anne Marie DeLuise who plays Cam Mitchell's old high-school heart-throb Amy Vandenberg.

    • In the hallway of Cam's high school there is a poster where Damian Kindler, the writer of this episode, is running for Class Treasurer as well as a poster for Peter DeLuise, the directer of the episode, who is running for Class Secretary but the letters preceding "ass" have been crossed out on both posters.

    • This episode first aired on the UK channel Sky one, on February 6, 2007, at 8:00pm.

  • Allusions

    • Daniel: And you might have gotten away with it too if it wasn't for us meddling kids.
      This is an allusion to the detective/ghost busting kids in Scooby Doo. Something which was most often said as: "..and I might have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for you pesky kids" by the bad guy in each episode.

    • Mitchell: Yeah, me and Daisy, we're living large.
      This is one of several allusions to The Dukes of Hazzard. Others include Vala's short shorts and a reference to moonshine.
