  • Trivia

    • When the off-world team encounters the ruins, Balinksy raises his fists in the wide shot, then again on the close-up.

    • When Dr. Fraiser is talking to Bregman about Col. O'Neill, Sgt. Siler can be seen in the background. This continues the running gag of Siler constantly getting injured, although this is the first time we actually see him in the infirmary.

    • General Hammond is never interviewed. In fact he's never even asked to do an interview. How can Bregman possibly do a documentary on the SGC without input from the person in charge? It would be like doing a piece on the White House without mentioning the President.

    • At the end, when they are being attacked, Colonel Dixon uses his radio to ask for assistance from SG-9. But earlier when talking to Hammond, the General said he was sending SG-3 as backup.

  • Quotes

    • Hammond: I knew Kinsey and Bregman were headed your way and I thought you might be looking for an excuse to get away, Colonel.
      Jack: I thought as much, Sir, and I just wanted to express my deep and unyielding... love for you, sir.

    • Bregman: Col. O'Neill! Hi, I'm...
      Jack: I like vanilla over chocolate, my favorite color is peridot, I think Tibet should be free, and if I could have dinner with anyone in the world, it would be Mary Steenburgen.
      Bregman: No, no. I'm just trying... Mary Steenburgen?
      Jack: I think she's nice.

    • (Colonel Dixon talking about his children)
      Colonel Dixon: All night screaming, projectile vomiting, nuclear diapers, you've no idea. The reason why they make them so damn cute is so you don't suffocate them in their sleep.
      SG-13 Soldier: But Sir, you have four kids.
      Colonel Dixon: Why do you think I enjoy my job so much?

    • Balinsky: Dr. Jackson's going to die when he sees this.
      Dixon: What, again?

    • Teal'c: I did not say much.
      Sam: Really? It's usually so hard to shut you up.

    • Kinsey: How did your interview go?
      Jack: It was short, but oh so sweet.

    • Sam: Did you do your interview yet?
      Jack: Yep.
      Sam: Mary Steenbergen?
      Jack: She's so hot!

    • Colonel Dixon: "Miracle of birth" my ass. You know what's a miracle? Birth control that works.

    • Bregman: Could we get a shot of the gate spinning?
      Sam: Yeah. It's really cool – steam shoots out of it and everything.

    • Bregman: That's it? Why were we running?
      Daniel: I just wanted to see if you'd chase me.

    • Jack: I hope shots of my ass serve you well.

  • Notes

    • Mary Steenburgen, mentioned in this and earlier episodes as an actress Jack admires, stars on Joan of Arcadia with Michael Welch, who was on SG-1 earlier that season as Jack's younger clone in "Fragile Balance." "Joan" also airs on Friday nights, although an hour earlier than Stargate's timeslot.

    • We finally find out the scope of Davis' job. It's not much...

    • Mitchell Kosterman previously played a different character, Special Agent James Hamner, in "Seth."

    • The SGC has now conducted 1,000 embarkations through the stargate.

    • Dr. Fraiser mentions that Jack has had three knee surgeries. Anderson has in fact had three knee surgeries, the last one after tearing his knee when he tripped while carrying his daughter.
