Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • When we see the second gate for the first time, behind it is a round opening, created by the vortex as it opens. However, O'Neill and Carter awaken on the other side from the opening. They would have had to come through on the same side as the opening.

    • When dialing the hostile planet in search of O'Neill and Carter, the address dialed is yet again for Abydos (due to recycled footage).

    • SG-1's iris code is received before the sound effect of the gate opening is heard.

  • QUOTES (14)

    • Sam: Is this your first broken bone?
      Jack: Ah, ah... no... this, this would be... uh... nine, if you count skull fractures.
      Sam: How'd you manage that, sir?
      Jack: Little parachuting mishap over the borders of Iran and Iraq back in... '80...
      Sam: This is going to hurt, sir.
      Jack: Ah, I know, I know, I know, I know
      Sam: So, what happened?
      Jack: I hit the ground, go figure.

    • Sam: Daniel must have misdialed.
      Jack: Misdialed? You mean this place is the wrong number?

    • Sam: If we don't make it, I won't have any regrets. You?
      Jack: I'll regret...dying.

    • (Sam and Jack lay against each other to share body warmth)
      Sam: ....oh, Colonel...?
      Jack: It's my sidearm, I swear!

    • Daniel: (to Teal'c) What happens when you dial your own phone number? (Teal'c looks blank) Wrong person to ask. (to Hammond) What happens when you dial your own phone number?

    • Sam: Sshhh. Try to sleep.
      Jack: Is that what we're doing?
      Sam: You're exhausted; you passed out. I just thought we had to combine body heat or we wouldn't make it through the night.
      Jack: That's fine. It's just...very hard to sleep…with broken ribs when someone's lying on you.
      Sam: Sorry.

    • Sam: I've, uh, been thinking about how the Stargate might have malfunctioned.
      Jack: Yeah?
      Sam: Well, we don't totally understand how it works; but the theory we have so far is that the Gate creates an artificial wormhole, that somehow transfers an energized matter stream in one direction along an extra-dimensional conduit. I think the matter stream between Stargates got redirected, kind of like a...a lightning bolt jumping from one point to another in mid-strike. Now, I figure it had to have been the attack on P4A-771. The Gate itself was probably struck by enough energy during the firefight to influence the direction of the matter stream before we reached the other side. Colonel?
      Jack: I'm sorry--I wasn't listening.

    • Sam: I didn't know you could cook.
      Jack: I can't, but my melted ice is to die for.

    • Sam: With all the possible Stargates, a random search could easily take...10 years.
      Jack: Not if they look here first.
      Sam: Even if all SG teams started searching right now, the mathematical probability of them even...
      Jack: Captain!
      Sam: I think too much.

    • Jack: What is [option] 4?
      Sam: There is no 4.
      Jack: It's after 3.
      Sam: Not this time, Colonel.

    • Sam: What's wrong with your chest?
      Jack: I think I cracked a rib too.
      Sam: Why didn't you say something?
      Jack: I was afraid you'd try to put a splint on it.

    • Sam: Ah, I don't think you should move.
      Jack: Probably not, but my butt's freezing to the ground.

    • Jack: You wouldn't think jagged bone digging into raw nerves would hurt, but it does.

    • Sam: Try to stay put, Sir, I think your leg's broken.
      Jack: No, my leg's definitely broken. What's the bad news, 'cause unless they've redecorated the Gate room, I don't think we're in Kansas anymore.
