  • Trivia

    • Trivia: Daniel's birthday is July 8th, 1965. (The year might not be right, but he said he was about 4 1/2 years old in 1969 and the month was August.)

    • Why didn't Teal'c use a zat to stun Ammonet/Sha're? He could've broken off the attack on Daniel long enough to save him. Or for that matter, he could have used a different weapon and just wounded her to buy Daniel some time. While wounded he would've had time to remove her hand device.

    • Before Teal'c enters the tent, he fires one final shot in the battle, but his staff was closed.

    • When Daniel asks Jack how he got into the apartment Jack tells Daniel that he let himself in and he will need a new lock. Daniel shoud have noticed his lock was broken.

    • When Dr. Frasier said they hadn't taken Sha're's body back to Abydos, the camera zooms in on Daniel and he blinks a few times. It's obvious that they slowed down the footage on the last blink to prolong the scene as the footage moves in approximately 15-20 frames per second.

  • Quotes

    • Jack: Daniel, the UAV showed no big signs of civilization - human, Goa'uld or otherwise.
      Daniel: So you want me to look for little signs of civilization. Itsy-bitsy artifacts and...
      Jack: It's good to have you back.

    • Jack: General, the guy's got two left feet. I'm tellin' ya, he slows down the unit.
      Daniel: Deja vu?
      Jack: (confused) Deja vu?
      Daniel: Deja vu? You know, Rothman was a two-time decathlon champion in college.
      Jack: Rothman?
      Hammond: Two left feet, huh?
      Daniel: Trying to get Robert out of your unit?
      Jack: Well, yeah.
      Daniel: Any chance of that happening, sir?
      Hammond: Only chance would be if you reconsider.
      Daniel: Okay.
      Jack: Good! So Rothman's gone... (pause) What?
      Daniel: Okay.
      Jack: Are you kidding?
      Daniel: No. I've thought about it and I've decided I'd like to come back.

    • Jack: "The SGC may be the single most important human endeavor for the future of mankind." Not bad, huh? You said that!
      Daniel: The SGC will go on without me.

    • Jack: (to Daniel to stop him to leave SGC) And you'll miss the excitement. All the new cultures you get to explore, the living history. It's the kind of stuff you can't walk away from.

    • Daniel: Robert Rothman... he was my research assistant when I was doing my dissertation. Smart guy...yeah, had a good teacher.
      Jack: Geek.
      Daniel: Yes, he used to call me that.
      Jack: I was talking about you.

    • Hammond: What changed your mind [about coming back]?
      Daniel: I don't know. I just think there's something out there I have to be the one to find.
      Jack: See? I miss that. I have no idea what he means, but I buy it!

    • Daniel: (to Jack and Kasuf) How'd you get in here?
      Jack: I got sick of waiting in the hall so I let us in. You...need a new lock, by the way...

    • Daniel: (to Rothman) Don't let Jack get to you. He's just intimidated by you because you're way smarter than he is.

    • Jack: Come on, you'll miss me!
      Daniel: Yes: all the salty bad tempered insults, or the illogical arguments.
      Jack: Okay, you'll miss Carter and Teal'c.

    • Jack: Rothman, you're being reassigned.
      Rothman: Why?
      Jack: You're being replaced.
      Rothman: Why?
      Jack: Because I'm intimidated by your intelligence. Where's the confusion here?

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Sha're: Kheb.
      Daniel: I know a Kheb. The -- there's a reference in Budge.

      E.A. Wallis Budge was an Egyptologist and prolific author in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century; he wrote more than a dozen books about Egyptian history, myth, legend, and lore.

    • Jack: Hey, Bruce Jenner, you're sitting this one out.
      Bruce Jenner was the 1976 Olympic Decathlon gold medalist and went on to do motivational speaking and charity work. Jack says this to Dr. Rothman after finding out he was a two-time decathlon winner in college.
