  • Quotes

    • Ke'ra: There are still so many questions. Why are there no images of children? Where have our elders gone? Through your Stargate, perhaps?
      Daniel: Well, it's possible that your people foresaw a disaster and sent the most helpless to safety.
      Ke'ra: No, Daniel. Whatever happened happened quickly, without warning.
      Daniel: How do you know that? (slowly realizing) Because, if you saw disaster coming, you would have left yourselves a note? Sort of a... to whom it may concern?

    • Jack: (walking into the room where everyone has worried faces) Oh, my! There is a distinct lack of optimism in this room.

    • Daniel: A question. Who would you trust with your life more than anyone in the world? Don't worry, I won't be offended if you don't pick me. Could it be Teal'c?
      Jack: Sure.
      Daniel: Teal'c, just refresh my memory. What was your previous occupation?
      Teal'c: I was First Prime of Apophis.
      Daniel: Right. Did a few nasty things back then?
      Jack: We see the point you're trying to make.
      Daniel: (referring to Linea) No, you don't. She is not the same person.

    • Orner: Who'd give you a name like Teal'c?

    • Jack: Oh... I was just thinking about amnesia. It doesn't quite track with Linea's nickname.
      Teal'c: The Destroyer of Worlds.
      Jack: Yeah, that one.
      Sam: Well, actually, in sort of a sick way, it does. I mean, Ke'ra said herself their society was on the verge of collapse, despite their efforts. This world is in trouble, sir.
      Teal'c: Perhaps Linea was experimenting with other ways in which to destroy worlds.
      Jack: Variety being the spice of life and all?

    • Mayris: You don't know who Ke'ra is?
      Orner: She is Minister of Health, Science and Restructuring in the Vias Transitional Government.
      Jack: Busy gal.

    • Ke'ra: There are two people inside of me, and one of them is a monster. In time, she will win.
      Daniel: You won't hurt me, because there's another way, Ke'ra.
      Ke'ra: (screaming) I'm not her!
      Daniel: No, you're not. But you can be her again. You can forget. All you have to do is forget...

    • Orner: Am I in one piece?
      Layale: Yes, Orner, one skinny little piece.

    • Jack: Don't say it, Carter.
      Sam: Sir, we wouldn't recognize her even if she walked through the front door...
      Jack: No, don't... (puts fingers in ears) lalalalalalalala...

    • Jack: Hello, amnesia check. "Destroyer of Worlds."
