  • Trivia

    • Lt. Evans said the wave of radiation only affected living tissue as "everything else" (e.g. clothes) was left behind. However, there were plants in the background behind her which are also living.

    • Upon rescuing Teal'c and Mitchell from the Jaffa aboard the Ori ship, Sam fires her Zatnikatel without it opening up first. Usually the weapon flicks forward slightly like a scorpion's tail, in this instance it does not.

  • Quotes

    • Vala: (thinking Adria's dead) I knew she was the will of the Ori even before she was born. I could have done something about it, but I didn't.
      Daniel: She was your child.
      Vala: Maternal instinct can only excuse so much. Course, I did tell myself that my relationship with her could prove to be an advantage that at some point, some critical moment, I might be able to reach her in a way that no one else could.
      Daniel: And you might have been right.
      Vala: I'm just relieved I'll never have to find out for sure.

    • Daniel: I joined SG1 and searched for (Sha're) for over two years, but in the end I couldn't save her. For a long time I felt guilty that I'd failed her.
      Vala: And now?
      Daniel: Now I can at least draw comfort from the fact that she is no longer suffering at the hands of the Goa'uld. I guess, in a small way, I feel relieved as well.

    • Bo'rel: No one is innocent who joins with my enemy.
      Mitchell: They were invaded by an army with massively superior firepower.
      Bo'rel: They should have resisted.
      Mitchell: So, die at the hands of the Ori, or die at the hands of the Jaffa. Some choice.

    • (about the super-weapon)
      Se'tak: The Tau'ri, your people…
      Landry: …are pissed.

    • Vala: (to Adria, who's choking Daniel) Okay. We all know, darling, that you have telekinetic powers. You can stop showing off now.

    • Vala: Can I ask you a question?
      Daniel: Just the fact that you have to ask me to ask means I should say no.

    • Teal'c: A great Jaffa once said "Exalted is the warrior who achieves victory without battle."
      Mitchell: "Winning shows strength, winning without fighting shows true skill."
      Teal'c: You are a student of ancient strategies?
      Mitchell: No, Landry said it to me. I think he was quoting Sun-Tzu. Or it could have been Dr. Phil.

    • Landry: Sometimes you make the right decision. Sometimes you make the decision right.
      Walter: Patton.
      Landry: That one's Dr. Phil.

    • Vala: Listen, we're not rejoining the fleet. You're coming with me.
      Adria: No, I can't abandon my army.
      Vala: It's not your army.
      Adria: Of course it is.
      Vala: Well, as your mother I'm putting my foot down. You're too young to have your own army.

    • Adria: You're my mother. If I'm unable to convince you, how can I be expected to sway the countless worlds in this galaxy. Until I have brought you into the fold, my mission here is a failure.
      Vala: I can be very stubborn.
      Daniel: Mmm hmm.

    • Bra'tac: If only I could have done more to oppose Se'tak…
      Vala: There's nothing to be gained by second-guessing yourself. You can't remake the past. So look ahead… or risk being left behind. (leaves)
      Bra'tac: She displays the wisdom of a battle-seasoned warrior.
      Teal'c: Hmm.
      Daniel: She's a mother. Close enough.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Mitchell: Well at least it's not raining.
      A reference to a similar line in the 1974 movie Young Frankenstein. It's used when Igor notes "Could be worse...could be raining" and it promptly starts to rain.
