  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Teal'c: Warriors of Apophis, hear me. Apophis has been slain in battle with his enemies.
      (no response)
      Jack: Hey! He's telling you the truth. The battle you've been preparing for is never gonna happen. He's not coming back. Hello, is this mike on? We're trying to tell you something important here!
      Rogers: Apophis is a god. And gods cannot die.
      Nelson: Therefore Apophis cannot be dead. Any anyone who says otherwise is either testing us or is a traitor, sir.

    • Dr. Fraiser: He won't eat, he won't speak--except to call me a shol'va.
      Jack: You must be doin' a good job.

    • Nelson: You speak more like a Tauri than a warrior of Apophis.
      Jack: Well, thanks. You're not so bad yourself. Who taught you?
      Nelson: If you are who you say you are, you already know the answer to that, sir.

    • Gen. Hammond: What happened, Colonel?
      Kyle: My lord?
      Jack: Actually, we just call him General Hammond.

    • (Sam sees the large image of Apophis coming out of the vo'cume)
      Sam: Sir?
      Jack: Just a huge, honkin' Apophis, Major.

    • (Jack is teasing Kyle about the tuna sandwich)
      Jack: Mmm... Tuna.
      Kyle: Go to Sokar.
      Jack: It's "go to hell", actually. Which, by the way, is a rude thing to say to a person offering you a sandwich.
      Kyle: It means the same.
      Jack: You've got a point.

    • Jack: All right, once we take the encampment, we become the defenders to buy Carter time. Is everyone clear on that? Daniel?
      Daniel: (not having paid attention) What?
      Jack: Good.

    • Jack: So...why haven't you eaten anything?
      Rogers: It is poison!
      Jack: Of course it is, it's hospital food.

    • Sam: Teal'c, what about these?
      Teal'c: They are Ihntar.
      Jack: Short for...?
      Teal'c: Ihntar.

    • Jack: Apophis told me to tell you that the whole invasion of the Tau'ri idea has been canceled... due to rain.

    • Captain Rogers: Corn and cotton are indigenous to North America.
      Jack: And that information could save your life one day.

    • Hibbard: You want to find out, four-eyes?
      Daniel: "Four-eyes"?
      Jack: Easy, big fella...

    • Jack: You know, that UVA needs a swift kick in the CPU.

    • Captain Rogers: I will reveal nothing. You may begin torturing me.
      Jack: Oh, I've already begun! This is the infamous tuna torture.

    • Jack: Master Teal'c, perhaps we should spare them this time.
      Teal'c: Yes, I concur... underling.

    • Hammond: I'd like to debrief you ASAP.
      Jack: Yes, my lord.

    • Teal'c: This is Colonel O'Neill! He is much loved by Apophis.

    • Hibbard: Hey, you can't talk!
      Jack: Why not?
      Hibbard: Because you are dead!

    • Rogers: You must execute me for the remainder of the day.
      Hibbard: And me as well.

  • Allusions

    • Jack: Mmm... Tuna.
      While eating a sandwich off of Roger's hospital food-tray, O'Neill makes a very Homer Simpson-like "yummy-sound."

    • Rogers and Nelson:
      The name of the two Captains is almost certainly an in-joke reference to I Dream of Jeannie - Major Roger Healey and Major Tony Nelson.
