Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • When Jack is in confinement and he and Daniel are talking, the security camera's red light does not blink for the first half of the scene. The light begins to blink half way into the scene after there is a close up of Daniel (with the camera directly behind him).

  • QUOTES (14)

    • Martouf: In 2,000 years, the Tok'ra have never bowed to Goa'uld terrorism; we will not start now.
      Freya: Either way, it is true that either way, that any of your personnel who may have encountered the Goa'uld in the last two months may have fallen victim.
      Martouf: The problem is, zatarc programming is virtually impossible to detect.
      Freya: That is not true.
      Martouf: Your method is unproven.
      Freya: It worked on one previous occasion.
      Martouf: Even that is in question.
      Freya: It is all we have right now.
      Jack: Excuse me! Do we, or do we not have a Xanax detector?

    • Freya: (after kissing Jack) Anise, my symbiote, is far more interested in Dr. Jackson on an intellectual level, but she would have to suffer.

    • (Teal'c enters the room)
      Jack: Come to say your good-byes?
      Teal'c: If there is anything you require, O'Neill...
      Jack: Another option.

    • Jack: She made a pass at me.
      Daniel: Sam?
      Jack: Anise. Freya. One of 'em.

    • Freya: We can complete the zatarc testing in time.
      Jack: And if we find more?
      Hammond: Greater things than the summit could be in jeopardy, Colonel. Proceed. Dismissed.
      (Freya gets up)
      Jack: Well, this is fun! Who's next?
      (Jack gets up and follows her)
      Freya: SG-1.
      Jack: (to himself) Do'h.

    • Hammond: This zatarc detector actually works?
      Fraiser: It's alien technology. I have no way of knowing.
      Hammond: So, we're completely in the hands of the Tok'ra.
      Fraiser: Colonel must be happy about that.

    • Freya: Otherwise healthy Tok'ra operatives suffered sudden extreme behavior episodes, each ending in suicide.
      Jack: And no red flags went up for anyone?

    • Sam: The machine thinks we have false memories, but we don't. We were lying.
      Jack: I wasn't lying.
      Sam: Okay. You left something out.
      Jack: No, I didn't.
      Sam: Sir, when you wouldn't leave me, are you sure there wasn't something else that you're not admitting?
      Jack: What are you talking about?
      Sam: Something neither one of us can admit given our working relationship, our military ranks?
      (long pause)
      Jack: Oh! Oh. That.

    • Jack: Maybe it'll help Carter. Her brain's worth a lot more than mine.

    • Jack: Apparently, the snake likes you.
      Daniel: Really? You know, I think these are the Jack O'Neill moments I'll probably miss the most.
      Jack: What?
      Daniel: What?

    • Freya: I sense that you have been made uncomfortable by my offer.
      Jack: No! no, no, it's just... well, yeah...

    • Freya: Major Graham was a Zatarc.
      Jack: A what?
      Freya: A victim of Goa'uld mind control technology.
      Daniel: A what?

    • Jack: Look, there's so many reasons why this is wrong... and weird... and uh... wrong. Did I mention wrong?

    • Freya: I originally came from a planet where people where not afraid to show their affection for someone. When we wanted to lo'masha, we...
      Jack: Excuse me?
      Freya: I believe you call it...
      Jack: Something else.

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Jack: Do'h.
      Jack utters this to himself after learning SG-1 is next to be tested. "D'oh" is the catchphrase of Homer Simpson, from the animated series The Simpsons. Homer says this when he injures himself, or after he does something stupid.
