  • Quotes

    • Vala: Well what would be the harm in us just, whoops, failing to stop Teal'c from killing Arkad? It wouldn't be entirely on purpose and not out of accidental incompetence either if you catch my drift.
      Daniel: Yes, nudge nudge, wink wink.

    • Vala: How do we get Arkad to tell us all the pieces of the puzzle?
      Daniel: Well that's the easy part. See we capture him, lock him in a room and threaten to let Teal'c kill him.
      Vala: Genius.
      Daniel: Thank you.

    • Vala: So he leaks the information about the plot, pretends to act toward stopping the attack and with the time that he's bought, gets his chicks in a row.
      Daniel: That's a pretty good theory; and it's "ducks" by the way.

    • Mitchell: Hey, Teal'c. Teal'c, I know your out there, buddy. I don't know what you think's going on here, but we're here to help. (gets shot at) Okay, that was a lie. And I feel terrible about it, I hate myself.
      Teal'c: (over the radio) Why have you set a trap for me, Colonel Mitchell?
      Mitchell: Trap? That's crazy talk, man. Why would we set a trap for you?

    • Daniel: (to Arkad) Bra'tac send his regards as well. I don't think he'll mind me speaking for him when I say that he'd love to stab you in the eye with a really big knife.

    • Teal'c (interrogating man at bar): You underestimate the satisfaction I will get from your suffering.

    • Teal'c: Ten seconds. (starts to walk away)
      Ba'Kal: Where are you going?
      Teal'c: I am leaving--you are about to explode.

    • (watching Teal'c getting ready to leave)
      Mitchell: So I was thinking, we could zat him, toss him in a holding cell until he comes to his senses.

    • Title
      The title derives from the Latin lex taliionis, meaning "law of retribution," a punishment that is equal to the offense -- derived from Genesis 9:6 ("Whoever sheds a man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed") and the ancient law of "an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth."
