  • Trivia

    • This is the fourth of Dion Johnstone's seven appearances on Stargate. With the exception of Chaka, he has never played a character twice.

    • Right after the scene where Lt. Tyler shoots Daniel with the zat gun, they show the briefing room in the SGC, if you look closely, you can see the studio lights on the ceiling in the gate room.

    • When SG-1 returned from P7S-441, General Hammond's skill badges were in the wrong order. The Command pilot wings were on the bottom and the Space and Missile badge was on top. But in every other episode the Pilot wings are on top and the Space & Missile badge is on the bottom.

    • When O'Neill rigs a grenade with a trip-wire as a trap, he's breaking the rules of armed combat. (Not that it matters when fighting Jaffa, but on Earth it's illegal.)

  • Quotes

    • Teal'c: I am loyal to the Tau'ri.
      Simmons: Why should I believe you?
      Teal'c: If I were still loyal to the Goa'uld, you would know it.
      Simmons: Really?
      Teal'c: It would be immediately apparent, as I would not hesitate to kill you where you sit.

    • Daniel: This is a waste of time.
      Simmons: This isn't a waste of time. This is an official investigation.
      Daniel: Oh, no, I mean, I get it. We obviously have Lt. Tyler issues. I say he exists, you say he doesn't.
      Simmons: This isn't just about Lt. Tyler.
      Daniel: Someone else doesn't exist?

    • Jack: Well, I wasn't gonna let you die, Lieutenant. It's, like, a ton of paperwork.
      Tyler: Paperwork?
      Jack: It's a joke. My way of deflecting the tension from my own obvious heroism. You'll get used to it.
      Tyler: Oh, right. I understand.
      Jack: ...Right.

    • Sam: Daniel.
      Daniel: (recovering consciousness) Ah...
      Jack: Hey, where's Tyler?
      Daniel: You know I would have asked him but I was too busy being unconscious after he shot me with that zat you gave him, so...

    • Jack: Do you know what the Goa'uld really want from us? Minnesota, that's what! For fishing mostly. I'll take you some time.
      Tyler: Fishing?
      Jack: Oh yeah, ask Teal'c - he can't get enough!

    • Jack: Daniel, stay with... What is your name anyway?
      Tyler: Chayayeeyaye.
      Jack: ...? Ok, Daniel, you stay with Ch... Tyler.
