Dr. Daniel Jackson (Seasons 1-5, 7+)
Aris Boch claims he disabled the DHD to prevent the escape of SG-1. However, we have seen SG-1 escape from planets with damaged, destroyed or missing DHDs by manually dialing the gate. Thus, disabling the DHD wouldn't seen to be a very effective method of preventing their escape.
When entering Aris' ship for the first time, Daniel (or rather Micheal Shanks who wasn't watching where he was going) trips over the pile of equipment discarded by SG-1.
Mark Holden has trouble pronouncing "Goa'uld" - he says it like "gouh'ld" (short o, short u) and omits the long "u" sound.
Aris: I don't have to tie you to a tree or anything unpleasant like that, do I?
Aris: Do you want to know how I became the greatest bounty hunter in the galaxy?
Jack: More than life itself.
Aris: Captain, you must have some medical training?
Sam: Actually I'm a Major now.
Aris: Ohh, well how very important. I'll inform the galaxy.
Sam: Sir, [Aris] isn't Goa'uld.
Jack: And? But? So? Therefore?
Jack: Daniel. Would you come here a moment? What do you think this is?
Daniel: Looks like a countdown.
Jack: Of course it is. Oh, Teal'c? Would these ships have any kind of self-destruct mechanism?
Teal'c: It is possible.
Daniel: We just lost a digit.
Jack: Of course we did.
Jack: Who are you?
Aris: Aris Boch. Perhaps you've heard of me?
Jack: Ah, not I. Teal'c?
Teal'c: I have not.
Aris: Well, that's disappointing. I'm one of the galaxy's greatest hunters.
Jack: Not ringin' a bell, sorry.
Aris: Well, I know you. Captain Samantha Carter. Dr. Daniel Jackson. The Jaffa traitor Teal'c, and Colonel Jack O'Neill.
Jack: Well, fancy that. We're famous.
Aris: Dr. Jackson, if you don't mind, treating my wound.
Daniel: I'm an archaeologist.
Aris: I know, but you're also a doctor.
Daniel: Of archeology.
Aris: Never mind. Captain! You must have some medical training.
Sam: Actually, I'm a Major now.
Aris: Oh, well, how important. I'll inform the galaxy. Can you get over here now and help me, Major?
Daniel: So, ah, what do you expect to get for us?
Aris: Well, ah, Teal'c is worth the most. The System Lords would love to make a good example of him. And Carter here, well, she has the memories of the Tok'ra Jolinar. And you, O'Neill, you're considered, well, you're a pain in the mikta.
Daniel: What about...what about me?
Aris: You? Probably happy to get a day's rations for you.
Daniel: Oh. A day's rations.
Jack: Trade you.
Daniel: And how do we know we can trust you?
Aris: My word is good on over 2,000 planets.
Jack: There are billions.
Jack: You won't blow up your ship.
Aris: Maybe I will.
Jack: While you're in it?!?
Daniel: It opened when he said that word. Bark something.
Jack: Okay. Almond Bark. Barcalounger. Beetlejuice!
Jack: So we'll fly it to a closer planet with a stargate.
Daniel: Good thinking.
Jack: It happens.
Jack: How does one Goa'uld fire weapons from different directions?
Teal'c: Tacluchnatagamuntorons - tacs.
Jack: Well, we're exactly one zat gun short of actually having a zat gun.
Aris: A 'zat gun'?
Jack: Drop the 'nik'atel.
Aris: (shrugs) Hmmm... I guess it does save a bit of effort.
Jack: Teal'c, how fast will this unit fly?
Teal'c: I believe it is capable of traveling twice the speed of light.
Jack: Nice, home for dinner!
Sam: Sir, if you're thinking of trying to steal the ship and fly it back to earth, even at 372000 miles per second it would still take us 10 years to fly that far.
Jack: (to himself) Should've let the dog out.
Jack: What's his name again? Kevlar?
Jack: You know, if you really were the greatest bounty hunter in the galaxy, you'd grab that Goa'uld yourself and turn us all in.
Aris: What, and miss the chance of watching the great Jack O'Neill in action?
Aris: Oh, ah, Dr. Jackson, I was lying to you before. The price on your head is much more than a day's ration. Actually, the Goa'uld want to see you dead as much as anyone for figuring out the Stargate.
Daniel: Thank you. That...doesn't make me feel any better.
Korra: Somehow I must find a way to pay tribute to what you have done for me and the Tok'ra.
Teal'c: There is no need.
Aris: Hey, guys, what about me? Don't I get a thank you?
Sam: For doing the right thing for a change?
Aris: Well, it's kind of a backhanded show of appreciation... but I'll take it.
Aris: Oh, this is so beautiful, Really, I mean I'm starting to tear up here. But we got to go. Now!
Daniel: You don't seem to have much of a problem trading human lives like commodities.
Aris: Oh, you earthlings and your morality. Has it ever occurred to you that someone outside your solar system might not see things the way you do?
