  • Trivia

    • Trivia: This is the first episode in which Teal'c says 'Indeed' as a single sentence.

    • Teal'c's forehead emblem is made of gold (revealed in "Bane"), which is a good conductor of heat. So why would Teal'c not be able to feel the pain of the red-hot poker when it touched his emblem?

    • When discussing the Goa'uld lifecycle previously (in the episode Hathor), Hathor indicated that the Goa'uld combine the prospective host species DNA with Goa'uld DNA in order to produce the resulting larvae. This statement seems slightly inconsistent with the ability of an Unas-Goa'uld to infect a human host. There are, of course, a number of possibilities, especially considering the very limited time during which the Goa'uld infected the Canon.

    • At the end, Carter dials one chevron and then they take out the Goa-uld possessed Canon. Afterward she goes back and one symbol is still lit. Then we hear her clearly dial seven more chevron/symbols. There are only seven chevrons lit up on the Gate and clearly they don't end up in another galaxy.

  • Quotes

    • Daniel: I think we were wrong about this Goa'uld. He isn't playing God. He's playing the Devil.

    • (the villagers start screaming, and they hear the so-called demon approaching)
      Jack: Unas?
      Teal'c: You are correct, O'Neill. The first host of the Goa'uld.
      Jack: No, no, no, no, no... We killed him. He's dead.
      Teal'c: We only killed one Unas.
      Jack: I thought there only was one! Unas - uno, one?
      Teal'c: They are in fact a species.

    • Jack: (Teal'c has risen after being presumed dead, causing villagers to run screaming) You'd think these folks never saw a guy rise from the dead!

    • Jack: (to a Unas) long you gonna keep this up? The demon bit? Don't get me wrong, it looks like a great gig. You've got the padre in your back pocket, the hours are good, probably get all the chicks.

    • Daniel: Teal'c! You're...alive.
      Teal'c: It is so.
      Jack: Way to go, junior!

    • Simon: The Canon has spoken.
      Jack: What are you, the village idiot?!?

    • Jack: Major, next time Daniel gets the urge to help someone, shoot him.

    • Jack: Carter, if I ever get the urge to help anybody again, feel free to give me a swift kick.

    • Teal'c: Are you contemplating attack, O'Neill?
      Jack: A couple of shots with a staff, we own him.
      Sam: We hope. Took Thor's Hammer to kill the last one.
      Jack: Okay, a whole bunch of shots with a staff.

    • Jack: Simon! Listen to me! Look, we've run into this kind of thing before. Now, it's not a demon. It's...demonesque, I'll grant you, but it's just a big, ugly creature.
      Daniel: Who is inhabited by a Goa'uld who gives it great strength, intelligence and the ability to regenerate.
      Jack: Yes. It's a very smart, resilient creature.
      Daniel: In the service of Sokar who, for all intensive purposes, is Satan to these people.
      Jack: (glares) But it's not a demon.
      Daniel: No, it's not a demon.

    • Daniel: It was a procedure often done in the Middle Ages. They...well, they'd drill a hole in the person's head. By drilling a hole the evil spirits are released, thus saving the person from eternal damnation.
      Jack: Thus...saving the person?!?
      Daniel: Well, they didn't call them the Dark Ages because it was dark.

    • Teal'c: I know of no Goa'uld capable of showing the necessary compassion or benevolence that I have read of in your Bible.
      Jack: Do you read the Bible, Teal'c?
      Teal'c: It is a significant part of your Western culture. Have you not read the Bible, O'Neill?
      Jack: Oh, yeah. Yeah. Not all of it. Actually, I'm listening to it on tape. Don't tell me how it ends.

    • Sam: Looks like a church.
      Jack: And that would mean...?
      Teal'c: That it is most likely Christians reside here, O'Neill.
      Jack: Thank you, Teal'c.

    • Jack: Ah! Trees, trees...and more trees. What a wonderfully green universe we live in, eh?

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Jack: Or...something.
      Said as Jack tucks his little finger into the corner of his mouth in a very Dr. Evil gesture (from the Austin Powers movie series).
