    • Alar: Think of it as a demonstration, Colonel. Are not your people more likely to be forthcoming with assistance, if we have something to offer in exchange?
      Jack: Sure. (sits in station) Does this thing take quarters, or...?

    • Daniel: How did this war start?
      Alar: The first enemy bombs fell on Euronda in a surprise attack. I was a boy of 9. I remember that night. I remember the floor of the room in which my father sequestered me shook with each explosion. I remember... knowing that each bomber that got through meant that another building, another home... another street in the city above me... was gone. That is how this war began, Doctor.
      Daniel: And for that... we only have your word.
      Alar: Three of our best men died attempting to reach Earth through your Stargate.
      Daniel: Well, that was an accident.
      Alar: And we have only your word.

    • Daniel: You said yourself, we could not and would not devote the resources necessary to win a war.
      Hammond: Obviously, I was speaking in terms of military assets... human lives.
      Daniel: But, there was a moral issue?
      Hammond: Yes.
      Daniel: But if we could provide the power of all that and more in the form of water, then the moral issue just... evaporates?
      Hammond: I shouldn't have to remind you that Apophis is alive and at present, capable of wiping us from the face of this Earth without contest. It is the mandate of this organization to make sure that doesn't happen!
      Daniel: I understand that... I do. (pause) We've only ever seen one side of this... do we even know why they're fighting?
      Sam: For their lives.
      Daniel: Yes! Yes, and I was all for saving those lives, but we're about to go way, way... way beyond that. We're about to turn the tide of a world war we know nothing about, against an enemy that we know nothing about. Is that the right way to get their technology? Yes! But is it the right thing to do?

    • Jack: Next time I tell you to shut up...
      Daniel: I didn't hear you tell me to shut up.
      Jack: Too subtle for ya?

    • Daniel: I was speaking metaphorically.
      Jack: Yeah. well stop it. It's not fair to Teal'c.

    • Jack: So, what's your impression of Alar?
      Teal'c: That he is concealing something.
      Jack: Like what?
      Teal'c: I am unsure. He is concealing it.

    • Jack: Alright, I'm here 2 hours early, when did you get here?
      Sam: I haven't left yet.
      Jack: Didn't I order you to get a life?

    • Jack: Hey, you got that look.
      Teal'c: To which look are you referring, O'Neill?
      Daniel: The one that says, "I have misgivings about this mission but deep down I know we're doing the right thing?"
      Jack: Eh, no, the other one...
      Daniel: Oh...

    • Daniel: We came here to help!
      Teal'c: Is that not what we are doing, Daniel Jackson?
      Daniel: No, their whole world is in flames, and we're offering gasoline! How does that help?!
      Teal'c: We are in fact offering water...

    • Farrel: Were you impressed by our weapon systems, O'Neill?
      Jack: Oh yeah, we'll take a dozen.
