  • Trivia

    • Trivia: Stories in Whistle Blower newspaper T'ealc is reading:
      -Headless Alien Found In Topless Bar – As dancer swung around pole she noticed decapitated alien wasn't groovin'!

    • When the SGC crew is at Martin's pod, the technical sergeant who's doing the resonance scan on the pod, seems to know that it's an alien ship. Yet later, when he returns from examining the pod, Teal'c deliberately hides his tattoo, as if the man isn't supposed to know that he's Jaffa. But if the man knows about alien lifepods, why then doesn't he know about Teal'c?

    • It is not revealed how Martin learned such specific information about the SGC, such as Jack's name, its location and its phone number.

    • As Teal'c is pulling Marty out of the van, you can briefly see the mic's shadow on the door.

    • One of the Stargate symbols that Martin wrote down doesn't match the address dialed when Martin returned to his homeworld.

  • Quotes

    • Martin: For the longest time I was obsessed with all those alien conspiracies: crop circles, cow mutilations, the Apollo cover-up.
      Jack: I thought the lunar landings were a hoax?
      Martin: No. That was a story created by the government to direct attention from the real cover-up. Everybody knows that!

    • Martin: I'm surprised a man in your position wouldn't take more precautions to maintain your cover.
      Jack: Marty, I'm not under cover.

    • Daniel: This, uh, doesn't really look like anybody's place of work. There's no one here.
      Sam: (turns around) Except for the guys with guns…

    • Man: What about this? (shows a thermal image of a symbiote)
      Daniel: Ohh that's very good. Did you draw that yourself?
      Sam: What is it?
      Daniel: That's a duck, isn't it?

    • (Marty is laying on ground)
      Teal'c: In hindsight, perhaps we should have given him his medication, O'Neill.

    • (seeing Marty's house sci-fi memorabilia)
      Daniel: Something tells me we don't need to worry about this guy.

    • (Marty is in bathroom)
      Marty: Can I come out yet?
      Teal'c: No.

    • Marty: This is unfair. Just because I'm from another planet I don't have rights? Doesn't the Geneva Convention cover extraterrestrials? I have to remember to go online and look that up.

    • Daniel: I don't know. That's why I hate working for the government. Every department has its own agenda, its own little... secrets!
      Tanner: Very true, Doctor Jackson!
      Daniel: (sarcastic) Oh, yeah. Yup. Didn't see that one coming!
      Tanner: I understand your reluctance to cooperate. In situations like this, information is on a need-to-know basis. The fact of the matter is... (takes out a electric taser)... we're running out of time. (takes out a spray can) I'm running out of patience. And I really... (takes out cattle prod)... need to know. (pause)
      Daniel: You're not a real doctor, are you?

    • (about Teal'c)
      Man: So, you're telling me, this man is an ordinary technical sergeant?
      Daniel: I wouldn't say ordinary.
      Sam: He's very good at what he does.
      Man: What's his area of expertise?
      Sam: Speechwriter.

    • Man: We know you were in Martin's house, because we got you on video. (freezes the video, with Teal'c on screen) What can you tell us about him?
      Daniel: He's an associate.
      Man: Yeah, we know that! We also know that he's not from around here.
      Daniel: Not from Montana?

    • Jack: Where's Martin?
      Teal'c: He became insistent in his demands for medication.
      Martin: (locked in the bathroom) Uh... Murray? Listen... I'm really sorry I tried to bite you and I realize it was totally out of line, but I was wondering if I could come out now?

    • Martin: Don't ya wanna know how I found you?
      Jack: (very unenthusiastically) Uh... okay.
      Martin: In your car, I notice a map of the Sleep-Rite Motel Chain. I checked every one in town!
      Jack: There's two!

    • (firing a toy gun)
      Teal'c: This weapon appears to be ineffective.

    • Jack: Okay. The truth. There is a top-secret government program called project Stargate...
      Martin: I knew it!
      Jack: But it has nothing to do with space travel.
      Martin: What does it have to do with?
      Jack: Magnets!
      Martin: What the hell is that supposed to mean?!
      Jack: No, I've already said too much.

    • Hammond: Early this morning, at approximately 04:00 hours, the base switchboard received the following call...
      (Hammond switches on a tape recorder)
      Martin: Hello. This is a message for Colonel Jack O'Neill and anyone else who's listening. I know this call's being monitored, but don't bother setting up a trace. I'm at a phone booth in Butte, Montana, and I'll be long gone before your black-ops teams can get here. You're not dealing with an amateur. I know all about Roswell and the Kennedy cover-ups, and the...
      (Hammond fast forwards the tape)
      Hammond: He goes on like that for a while.
      (Hammond plays the tape again)
      Martin: ...and the C.I.A.-sanctioned microwave harassment, and the...
      (Hammond fast forwards again)
      Hammond: Quite a while...
      (Hammond plays the tape again)
      Martin: ...and the lizard people...

    • Sam: (looking at a lifesize statue of a Roswell alien) He looks familiar...

    • Daniel: I was right in the middle of translating a cuniform tablet we found on P30-255.
      Sam: I was about to finish recalibrating Malp 3K's sensors for long term reconnaissance of P5X-3D7.
      Teal'c: I was unable to complete my kel'no'reem.
      Jack: I was just about to do... something important...

    • Martin: You think I'm making this all up. But look at this! (pops out a toothpick and gives it to Jack)
      Jack: Yes... It all makes sense now...
      Martin: I propped it up against the inside of my door - when I got home, it was on the ground, meaning someone was there!
      Jack: If you prop it up against the inside of your door... then how do you get out?
      Martin: Through the window. You think I'm so stupid I go out my own front door?

    • Martin: I know there's a secret government program involving travel to other worlds through this stargate.
      Jack: Sounds like a good idea for a TV series.

    • Daniel: Ya know, I've never been on a stakeout before. Shouldn't we have, like, donuts or something?

  • Notes

      Jack and Teal'c are watching The Day the Earth Stood Still, a 1951 Sci-Fi movie, at the motel just before Martin interrupts them.
