When the SG teams are firing at the Jaffa behind the force field, the fluctuations where the bullets hit are clearly visible. The bullets strike at various points all across the force field, many of them nowhere near the target. It is unlikely that anyone, let alone the elite hand-picked SG personnel would have such comically awful aim. The special effects team may have wanted it to look cooler but it just isn't realistic.
Teal'c: Firing the weapon will be your responsibility, General Hammond.
Hammond: Understood. What exactly did you mean by threading the needle?
Teal'c: Observe. (Teal'c flies them through the Stargate) Fire.
(Hammond blasts the tower)
Hammond: Yeeeee hah!
(a hooded figure reveals himself to be Hammond)
Hammond: Not what I'd call an army, but it's a start.
Bra'tac: Hammond; of Texas.
Hammond: Master Bra'tac. Gentlemen, I need your help.
Jaffa Woman: I know you. Shol' va! You dare return to Chulak?
Teal'c:The people of this world are my brothers and sisters. I have betrayed no one.
Jaffa Woman: Except your god.
Teal'c: False god. Dead false god.
Jaffa Woman: So you say, but his son lives.
Teal'c: With you or without, he will be defeated, as was his father. Our people will taste freedom.
Jaffa Woman: Bra' tac paid a heavy price for those words.
(Teal'c takes down the two Jaffa guards who are backing her)
Teal'c: You may tell your kinsmen that Teal'c has returned to Chulak. You will go to every home of every warrior in this city. You will tell them I will speak at the house of Bra'tac at dawn. Summon them!
Teal'c: The Goa'uld are not gods.
Crowd: (murmurs) Shol'va.
Teal'c: It is a lie we live each day. Only when he takes a host does a Goa'uld become strong. Even then, only as strong as the Jaffa that serve him. With out us, the Goa'uld are nothing. We are their strength. We are their power. Until we choose to serve them no more. I was witness to the final breath of Apophis. I watched him tremble with fear at what lay beyond. I believed that day would be honored for all time on Chulak. But instead , I see Jaffa taking up arms against one another. I see cowardice and I am ashamed. This is our time. It will not come again.
Makepeace: How's the leg? Can you walk?
Daniel: It's just a deep bleeding gash, but it'll be fine.
(the symbiote in Hathor's hand reacts to Jack)
Hathor: It seems that our friend has chosen.
Jack: What, the gray doesn't bother ya?
This is the first episode of the series in which a ship is flown through a Stargate. This would later be done regularly in Stargate Atlantis.
