Children of the Gods

Daniel Jackson: So this man who looked like Ra. He must have come through another gate.
Carter: What other gate?
O’Neill: A Stargate?
Carter: Stargate only goes here.
Daniel Jackson: You’re wrong about that.
Carter: I was there. We ran hundreds of permutations.
Daniel Jackson: But you didn’t have what you need.
O’Neill: Daniel, what are you talking about?
Daniel Jackson: I’ll show you.

Daniel Jackson: So I figured there had to be more to this place, so I started exploring. Just the area around the town and the pyramid at first, and after about a month I found this place. Captain Doctor, you’re going to love this.

Daniel Jackson: Jack, I think that this is a map of a vast network of Stargates. Stargates that are all over the galaxy.
Carter: I don’t think that can be, Doctor.
Jackson: Why not?
Carter: Well because after Colonel O’Neill and his team came back my team tried hundreds of symbol permutations using Earth as the point of origin and it never worked.
Jackson: Well I tried the same here and it didn’t work either. But I figured the destinations I tried were either destroyed or buried. But I mean some of them somewhere must still exist.
Carter: I don’t think so.
Jackson: Then where did your Ra look-a-like come from?

Carter: Colonel, Feretti needs medical attention now!
Jackson: Go! Help him. I can send you back.
O’Neill: You’re coming with us this time, Daniel. I’ve got orders.
Jackson: I don’t care about your orders, Colonel. My wife is out there. And so is Skaara.
O’Neill: And the only way we’re going to get them back is for you to come home with us! Feretti might have seen those coordinates

Jackson: General, hi. Daniel Jackson. We’ve never met. I’d like to be on the team that goes after them.
General Hammond: You’re not in any position to make demands, Jackson.

O’Neill: Hey.
Jackson: They don’t know what to do with me. And I don’t know what to do with myself.
O’Neill: Come on. Let’s get out of here.

Jackson: This beer is going straight to my head. What time is it anyway? I must have gatelag or something.
O’Neill: Daniel, for crying out loud. You’ve had one beer. You’re a cheaper date than my wife was.
Jackson: Yes. When am I going to meet your wife?
O’Neill: Oh! Probably, ah, never. After I came back from Abydos the first time she’d already left.
Jackson: I’m sorry.
O’Neill: Yeah, so was I. I think in her heart she forgave me for what happened to our kid. Just in her heart she couldn’t forget.
Jackson: What about you?
O’Neill: I’m the opposite. I’ll never forgive myself. But sometimes I can forget. Sometimes.

General Hammond: Colonel, what do we know about these hostiles we didn’t yesterday?
O’Neill: Not a hell of a lot, General. The Abydon boys who survived the attack on the base camp thought it was Ra.
General Hammond: I thought he was dead, gentlemen. Which is it?
Jackson: Oh he’s dead. He’s definitely dead. I mean, uh, the bomb… I mean he’s gotta be dead, right?
General Hammond: Then who’s coming through the Stargate?
Jackson: Gods.
General Hammond: What?
Jackson: Not as in, God God. Ra played a god—the sun god. He borrowed the religion and culture of ancient Egyptians he brought through the gate and then he used it to enslave them. See, he wanted the people of Abydos to believe he was the only one.
Carter: So you’re saying Ra’s not the last of his race after all.
Kawalsky: Maybe he’s got a brother Ray.
O’Neill: That’s what we need.
Jackson: Wait a minute. The legend goes, Ra’s race was dying. He survived by taking over the body of his human host, an Egyptian boy. But who’s to say more of his kind couldn’t do the same thing. I mean this could happen anytime anywhere there’s a gate. This could be happening right now.
General Hammond: Colonel, you’ve had the most experience in fighting this hostile. Assuming you have to defend yourself in the field, are you up to it?
O’Neill: We beat ’em once.
General Hammond: I’ll take that as a “maybe”. Captain Carter, you’re confident that the stargate will take us where we want to go with this new information?
Carter: Well they’re feeding the revised coordinates into the targeting computer right now. It’ll take time to calculate but it should spit out two to three destinations a month.
General Hammond: People, let’s not fool ourselves here. This thing is both vast and dangerous and we are so far over our heads we can barely see daylight. We would all be much better off if the stargate had been left in the ground.
Carter: With respect sir, we can’t bury our heads in the sand. I mean think of how much we could learn. Think of what we could bring back.
General Hammond: What you could bring back is precisely what I’m afraid of, Captain. However the President of the United States happens to agree with you. In the event your theories pan out he has order the formation of nine teams whose duties will be to perform reconnaissance, determine threats, and if possible to make peaceful contact with the peoples of these worlds. Now these teams will operate on a covert top secret basis. No one will know of their existence except the President and the Joint Chiefs. Colonel O’Neill.
O’Neill: Sir.
General Hammond: Your team will be designated SG-1. The team will consist of yourself, Captain Carter—
Jackson: And me.
General Hammond: Dr. Jackson, we need you to work as a consultant with the other SG teams from here. Your expertise in ancient cultures and languages are far too valuable—
Jackson: No. Um, look, I mean I know this is your decision but I just, I— I really have to be on their team. My wife is out there, General. I need to go.
General Hammond: I’ll take that under consideration. Major Kawalsky, you will head SG-2.
Kawalsky: I will?
General Hammond: Colonel O’Neill keeps telling me it’s about time you had a command.
O’Neill: I had a moment of weakness.

O’Neill: Ow!
Teal’c: What is this?
O’Neill: It’s a watch.
Teal’c: This is not Goa’uld technology. Where are you from?
O’Neill: Earth. Chicago, if you want to be specific—
Teal’c: Your words mean nothing. Where are you from?
Jackson: Uh. excuse me. he draws the Earth symbol This is where we’re from.

The Enemy Within


Jackson: What a mess.
Teal’c: This temple was destroyed long ago.
O’Neill: Let’s get a move on before we meet somebody who remember why.

Jackson: How is it that you always come up with the worst case scenario?
O’Neill: I practice.

Carter: So you think this new anesthesia will be a miracle drug on Earth?
Jackson: Well if it is I bet somebody else will get the credit. We can never say where it came from.
O’Neill: Damn! Guess I’m going to have to cancel that Oprah interview.
Teal’c: What is an “oprah”?

The Broca Divide

About the lack of light on P3X-797
Jackson: This is crazy. We don’t know what could be there waiting for us when we come through.
Makepeace: Don’t you worry, boys. That’s why the SG-3 Marines are coming with. You can count on us to watch your backsides.
Jackson: Actually it’s more my front side I was worried about.

O’Neill: Love what they’ve done with the place.
Carter: I was going to do my living room like this but it didn’t go with my other stuff.
Jackson: Looks Minoan.

Jackson: Wow. What happened to you?
O’Neill: Oh I got in a little wrestling match with Carter.
Jackson: Why?
O’Neill: I guess she’s got whatever Johnson got. I had to drag her off to the infirmary.
Jackson: What did she start a fight with you like Johnson did with Teal’c?
O’Neill: No, uh, she tried to seduce me.
Jackson: Oh. pause. You poor man.

The First Commandment

Jackson: This tastes like chicken.
Carter: So what’s wrong with it?
Jackson: It’s macaroni and cheese.

O’Neill: Let’s go. We’ve got company.
Jackson: Are you sure? a dart lands near his head
O’Neill: Pretty sure.

Jackson: They were probably just instructed to just take Connor, send us a message that Hanson’s in control.
Carter: Hm. Sounds familiar.
Jackson: Which part?
Carter: He likes control.
Jackson: Well what did you see in him?
Carter: I don’t know. I guess I’ve always had a soft spot for the lunatic fringe.

Brief Candle

Jackson: Wow, this place is incredible. It’s like we stepped into the Citadel at Mycenae.
O’Neill: I thought you said it was Greek.
Jackson: Oh, um, Mycenae was an ancient city in the southern Peloponnesus region.
O’Neill: Where’s that?
Jackson: Greece.
O’Neill: Why do I do that?

Jackson: Um. Do things feel a little… off here?
Carter: Are you crazy? It’s a paradise.
Jackson: Yeah, sure, have an apple. What could happen?

Cold Lazarus

Teal’c: You received permission for me to fire my staff weapon in the gate room?
Carter: Oh yeah.
Jackson: Absolutely.

Thor’s Hammer

The Torment of Tantalus

Jackson: There’s no conclusion to the file. No summary, no notes, no… reason to explain why they gave up.
O’Neill: Well whole boxes of material could be missing.
Jackson: No, the Pentagon said this was everything.
O’Neill: Oh please. The Pentagon’s lost entire countries.

O’Neill: Daniel, before your head explodes, may I remind you that we’ve got more important things to deal with right now.
Jackson: How can you say that? Don’t you know what this could mean?
O’Neill: Actually. No.
Jackson: This could be the key to understanding our existence. Everyone—every thing’s—existence.


Jackson: You were calling out something. “Rya’c”. Does that mean anything?
Teal’c: It means nothing.

Fire and Water

Jackson: This is a long story.
Carter: Yeah, I’ll bet.
O’Neill: Tell us about it over sushi.
Jackson: That’s funny. I will after I get some sleep.
O’Neill: Ah… home. Yeah, about that apartment.
Jackson: Oh, you didn’t!
Carter: The, ah, day after the memorial service.
Jackson: Memorial service?
Carter: The Colonel said some really nice things.
Jackson: He— he did? He did?

The Nox

Jackson: I thought we were dead. Weren’t we dead?
Carter: Yeah.
Jackson: Okay. Well I thought heaven would be a little more upscale.

Jackson: Somehow I don’t think we’d make very good Nox.
O’Neill: I think you’re right.

O’Neill: So Shak’l thinks we’re unarmed. Apophis thinks he’s invulnerable.
Jackson: And they’re right. I think I’ve found the flaw in your plan.


Jackson: Hathor was the Egyptian goddess of fertility, inebriety, and music.
O’Neill: Sex, drugs, and rock and roll?
Jackson: In a manner of speaking.

O’Neill: Did you find anything?
Dr. Janet Fraiser: Probably nothing we can use. We’ll at least get a cellular level analysis on the Goa’ulds. Maybe even find some DNA information.
Jackson: A lot of that will probably be mine.
O’Neill: Ew.
Jackson: Yeah.


Jackson: That’s interesting. I wonder if everyone’s coming from some sort of religious event.
O’Neill: Why does it always have to be a religious thing with you? Maybe they’re coming from a swap meet.

O’Neill: Did anyone hear that kid say that Teal’c was guilty already? For all we know they want to kill him.
Jackson: Wait, wait, who said anything about killing? I mean all they said was they want to put him through “Cor-ai”. Now, near as I can figure is that they want to put him through a simple trial.
O’Neill: Now see it’s that “near as I can figure” part that’s got me a little worried.

Jackson: You sure you’re up to this?
Carter: Why? You don’t think I am?
Jackson: Well it’s just that I’ve never actually heard you referred to as a diplomat. I think, um, “antagonist” was the word used.


Jackson: So what exactly are we going to see after this eclipse begins? I mean it is black and it is a hole.
O’Neill: Well it might be a black hole.
Jackson: Okay, let me put that a different way.
Carter: No Daniel, you’re right. You can’t actually see it. Not the singularity itself. It’s so massive not even light can escape it. But during the totalitarity phase of the eclipse we should be able to see matter spiraling towards it.
O’Neill: Actually it’s called the Accretion Disk.
Jackson: Well I guess it’s easy to understand why the local population would be afraid of something like a…. What did you just say?
O’Neill: It’s just an astronomical term.
Carter: You didn’t think the colonel had a telescope on his roof just to look at the neighbors, did you?
O’Neill: Not initially.

Hammond: Why didn’t the telescope team report that this outbreak was going on?
Jackson: We don’t know.

Carter: We have a big problem.
Jackson: Well if two microscopic particles could cause that—
Carter: Then the object inside Cassandra could cause a nuclear reaction a million times bigger.

Jackson: It’s a setup. It has to be. The Goa’ulds wiped out every last living person on that planet except Cassandra. And then they made us think it was our fault because they knew we wouldn’t leave her there. They knew we would bring her back here. And they used their technology to put that thing inside of her.
Carter: It’s like they designed a way to help them create the device after she came through the Stargate so we wouldn’t detect it until it was too late.
Fraiser: We gave her iron supplements. We may even have turned the device on with a jolt of electricity when we resuscitated her.
Hammond: You’re saying it’s meant to destroy us?
Carter: At least this complex. The threat to the Goa’ulds is the Stargate.
Jackson: It’s like they used that little girl like a Trojan horse.

Carter: I know I’m supposed to be detached.
Jackson: Who said that?

Jackson: Jack, she’s going back down.
O’Neill: The hell she is.


Jackson: We’d be colonizing space right now if it weren’t for the Dark Ages. There was a period of over 7800 years where science was heresy and anathema. Maybe they didn’t have that setback.

Omoc (Tobin Bell): Where is this place?
Hammond: You’re on a planet called Earth. These people saved you.
Omoc: Nothing could be further from the truth.
Jackson: Well unless I missed something you’re better off here than you were there.

Tin Man

Harlan: Comtraya! Comtraya!
O’Neill: Daniel?
Jackson: I think that’s a greeting.
Harlan: Yes. It is.


Hammond: I formally reported Colonel O’Neill and Captain Carter missing in action.
Jackson: Why?
Hammond: Missing in action doesn’t mean we stop looking, Son.

Teal’c: Why are you here?
Jackson: I couldn’t sleep. I was thinking that I must be missing something and now I realized. We ruled out a world that we shouldn’t have.

Jackson: What happens when you dial your own phone number? {Teal’c looks at him blankly} Wrong person to ask. What happens when you dial your own phone number?
Hammond: You get a busy signal.
Jackson: Exactly! What else could cause a vibration like that unless they were trying to dial home? They couldn’t get through.

There But for the Grace of God

Jackson: Jack? Sam? Teal’c? {to himself} Oh, I really hate it when this happens.

Jackson: General, what’s this all about?
Colonel Hammond: General? Do you see stars anywhere on my uniform?

Jackson: I know you. I belong here. You don’t.
Catherine Langford: Excuse me.
Jackson: You were retired. Uh, at least the Air Force made you retire. You were supposed to be at home living happily ever after with Ernest.
Catherine Langford: What?
Jackson: The man you were supposed to marry in 1945.

Jackson: Okay, a few hours ago everything about this place was completely different. Well I mean not completely different. You’re still you. Sort of.

Jackson: Okay. Now maybe I have completely lost my mind here, but as far as I am concerned we know each other very well. You know everything that I know.

Jackson: So if you’ve never been to Chulak you’ve probably never even met Teal’c.
General O’Neill: Teal?
Jackson: No. Teal’c!

General O’Neill: Report, Doctor.
Dr. Carter: We’ve lost Washington and Philadelphia, sir.
Jackson: I’m sorry. What do you mean “lost”?

Broadcaster: All military efforts to engage the Goa’uld ships have proven inconsequential. As in Europe, Asia and Africa—
Jackson: The Goa’ulds?
Dr. Carter: The ships appeared four days ago.
Broadcaster: —they have slowly begun systematically annihilating all signs of civilization. Starting on the East Coast and moving west with frightening inevitability. There has been no response to attempted communications with the aliens. Thus far, they have left no survivors in the wake of their seemingly unstoppable wave of destruction.

Jackson: You’re sending a nuclear weapon to Chulak?
General O’Neill: You got a problem with that?
Jackson: The Jaffa aren’t your enemy. They’re slaves.

Dr. Carter: Basically, scientists have theorized that there are an infinite number of dimensions, each containing a possible version of reality.
Jackson: Well it sounds like I theoretically possibly found one.

Jackson: Uh oh.
Dr. Carter: What?
Jackson: I think I’m dead.
Dr. Carter: What?
Jackson: The me in this reality.

Dr. Carter: What makes you think the Goa’uld are even going to try attacking Earth in your universe?
Jackson: Oh I’d say we’ve pissed the Goa’uld off just as much as you have. Probably even more.

Catherine: I take it they’re not engaged in your reality.
Jackson: No.

Jackson: Thank you.
Catherine: You helped reunite me with Ernest in the other world? {he nods}. I guess in the grand scheme of things, we’re even.

O’Neill: Okay, let’s get him back to Earth.
Jackson: No, Jack! We’re all in very big trouble. They’re coming. They’re coming.


Jackson: “Beware the destroyers”. That’s what the message said. These are the coordinates the Goa’uld will launch their attack from. It was a warning.
Teal’c: So your vision foretells.
Jackson: No! It wasn’t a vision or a dream or a hallucination. It was real.

Jackson: The whole time you thought I had disappeared on P3R-233 I was experiencing an alternate reality.
O’Neill: And you were there. And you were there. And there’s no place like home.
Jackson: As a matter of fact you were there!

Carter: Daniel, it’s not that we don’t believe you.
Jackson: So you do?
O’Neill: No. It’s just that. We don’t believe you.

Jackson: SG-2 just made contact with Kynthia’s planet just a few weeks ago. They are living long, productive lives because of us. Now I am very proud of what we did there.
O’Neill: I might even retire there.
Kinsey: You have no fear of it, do you Colonel? It’s like a game to you.
O’Neill: No sir. Anything as powerful as the Stargate deserves respect. We know how dangerous it is to do what we do. We also know how dangerous it is.
Kinsey: Colonel O’Neill, You’re like reckless children and you’re playing with fire.
Carter: If you shut down this program now, when it’s needed most—
Kinsey: For what?
Carter: To gather technology. Weapons.
Kinsey: Not at this price or this level of competence.
Hammond: My people are the best out there, Senator.
Kinsey: I’m sorry, General. But your best is not good enough. I do not approve of nor support this endeavour. And I have heard nothing here today that would change my mind. I intend to shut the Stargate down.

Jackson: I am not crazy.
Kinsey: Nor am I, Dr. Jackson. Neither am I am unused to eleventh hour pleas, though never have I heard one so desperate as this.
Jackson: Senator, they are coming.
Kinsey: Then I say let them come!
O’Neill: Where do you get this bureaucratic bull? You’re talking suicide.

Teal’c: I would like to request permission to return through the Stargate before it is permanently sealed. If this world does not intend to continue its struggle against the Goa’uld, then here I do not belong.
O’Neill: I think I’m going with him.
Hammond: I can’t allow that, Colonel. Sorry, but you know that. The President has made it perfectly clear, if we were unable to convince the Senator we would cease operations effective immediately.
Carter: Sir, there are still two SG teams offworld.
Hammond: We’ll keep the light on until they return, but that’s all I’m authorized to do.
O’Neill: So what? That’s it?
Hammond: That’s it, Colonel.
Carter: It can’t be.
O’Neill: With all due respect, sir—
Jackson: With all due respect, sir, the good senator is an ass.
Hammond: He is an elected official of the government we are sworn to serve. Whether we agree or disagree, he’s made his decision. Our commander-in-chief has given us our orders accordingly. I expect you all to carry them out. Dismissed.

Within the Serpent’s Grasp

Carter: Even if it was, how do we know that that address correlates with this reality?
Jackson: Well there’s only one way to find out, isn’t there?
Teal’c: We should enter the coordinates and attempt to open the Gate.

Jackson: Teal’c, what is this?
Teal’c: It is aGoa’uld long-range visual communication device. Somewhat like your television but much more advanced.
O’Neill: Think it gets Showtime?

O’Neill: I suggest the two of you figure out how to get us back home.
Carter: Sir, the only way to do that would be to turn this thing around and go back to where we started.
Jackson: Right. I’ll just go tell the pilot.
