  • Trivia

    • When Carter and Mitchell returns from the mission when capturing the two Ba'als, they claim that the trip took 3.2 seconds, in the season 9 episode "The Ripple Effect" Carter elaborates on the subject saying that "(though the trip) feels instantaneous, on average a trip takes 0.3 seconds but in this case the trip took 3.4 seconds". As this was a normal trip without any ripple effects, the trip should have taken 0.3 seconds.

  • Quotes

    • Mitchell: What the hell are you doing?
      Vala: I alerted a Jaffa patrol to our presence.
      Mtchell: Obviously. Do you mind if I ask why?
      Vala: So they'd sound the alarm and send reinforcements.
      Mitchell: Oh, well that's…that's brilliant. Hey, how come I didn't think of that?

    • Agent Barrett: (to Landry) I understand you've got yourself a few extra Ba'als. I don't suppose you'd consider letting me take a few off your hands?

    • Davis: That ties you with SG-12 because they brought in two more about an hour ago.
      Mitchell: Damn.
      Carter: It's not a competition.
      Mitchell: Says you.

    • Mitchell: Chief, got a full count. Two strikes, three Ba'als.
      Davis: Ah..ha-ha..that's..that's clever sir.
      Sam: He was thinking that one up the whole way home.
      Mitchell: It only took me three seconds.
      Sam: 3.2.
      MItchell: Okay, you've got a point.

    • Ba'al: It's the clones. They want me dead.
      Teal'c: That would make all of us.
      Mitchell: Dead huh? What'd you do--shortsheet the bed? Cheat at cards?

    • Mitchell: Well, that is a truly incredible story, in every sense of the word.

    • Mitchell: Those are the Ba'als?
      Dr. Lee: More like dots, really. (everyone stares) You get it? Dots, Ba'als?

    • Landry: You don't think you can control (Vala)?
      Mitchell: No, I know I can't control her but that's pretty much par for the course. Sir, Carter and I are the same rank, Teal'c's an alien, Jackson's a civilian. I've learned a long time ago I don't control anything.
      General Landry: Who does...?

    • Mitchell: So much for not encountering resistance.
      Vala: I guess some Ba'als are bigger than others.

    • Mitchell: No, I'm just calling it like I see it and right now you do not strike me as someone who could intimidate a ten-year old out of his lunch money, much less run an interstellar empire.
      Ba'al Clone: (in Goa'uld voice) Why don't you have the guard excuse himself for a moment and I'll show you what I'm capable of.
      Mitchell: Now, see I know you're not the real Ba'al. The real Ba'al wouldn't care about the guard.

    • General Landry: Somebody give me some good news.
      Mitchell: Sorry, sir, I still don't have anything useful.
      Vala: I didn't even make it to first base.

  • Allusions

    • Mitchell: (to a Ba'al clone) Let's go, Spartacus
      In the film Spartacus, about a man of the same name, in one scene when the Romans are looking for Spartacus, everyone but Spartacus rises to claim they are the real Spartacus. This is similiar to how each Ba'al claims to be the original.
