Redemption : Part One

Jonas Quinn (Corin Nemec): Hey Major? How do I know what color to wear?
Carter: We call each other every morning.

Carter: Sir, the X-301 was a modified glider. Now while many of the 302’s systems were retro-engineered from Goa’uld technology, it is entirely human-built.
O’Neill: So was the Titanic.

Carter: Jonas, I understand why you want to join SG-1. And I’m sorry, but, I just don’t see it happening.

Carter: Teal’c’s not exactly an open book.
Quinn: Still. I’m usually much better at reading people.
Chekov: Major! Why was I not informed about the X-302?
Quinn: For example, it might not be obvious to everyone but this man is actually very upset.

McKay: Still sexy as ever, I see.
Carter: What are you doing here?
McKay: Well there’s no point in building Naquadah reactors for Russia if there isn’t going to be a Russia, is there.

Murphy: I assume you were briefed on the way here.
Carter: Briefly.

Carter: Inertial dampeners.
O’Neill: Cool… and check.
Carter: Engines.
O’Neill: All check. Phasers?
Carter: Sorry, Sir.

O’Neill: I’m going to go eat some cake.
Carter: I think I’ll join you.

Redemption : Part Two

Carter: You’re creepin’ me out, McKay.

Carter: What’cha thinkin’?
McKay: Besides the fact that these guys are morons? she laughs. What do you think the little alien guy’s doing down there?

McKay: You know, it’s the stupidest thing, but it’s been bugging me since I got here.
Carter: What’s that?
McKay: We’re inside a mountain. The gate obviously can’t fit through any of these doors.
Carter: So how did we get it in here.
McKay: Yeah.
Carter: Ceiling retracts. Above it is a shaft that leads to the surface and inside is a crane mechanism that hoisted the gate down.
McKay: Interesting.
Carter: Yeah.
McKay: Does it go up?

Carter: Sir. You do realize that if this works we won’t have a Stargate anymore.
Hammond: It did occur to me.

Carter: They’re working on lightening the 302 but that’s why you’re going alone. Believe it or not every pound counts.
O’Neill: Shouldn’t have had that cake.

McKay: Well. Uh… let me know if I can help.
Carter: I will. Thanks. Carter kisses McKay on the cheek.
McKay: That means you don’t hate me.
Carter: Maybe. Too bad for you.
McKay: Why?
Carter: I was more attracted to you when I did.




Jonas Quinn (Corin Nemec): How long is this going to take?
Dr. Osbourne (Bruce Harwood): A couple days, maybe more. Why?
Jonas: Long range weather forecast doesn’t look good.
Carter: Bit of a weather freak.
Dr. Francine Michaels: He’ll love it here.

Dr. Fraiser: Do you have any guess about her age?
Dr. Michaels: Hm, 25 to 35.
Dr. Osbourne: Give or take several million years.
Carter: Several million?

Dr. Fraiser: We didn’t do anything, sir. She revived herself. It’s as if the thawing process triggered an internal response telling her body to come back to life.
O’Neill: But not a snakehead, right?
Dr. Fraiser: No sir.
O’Neill: All right. Then what are we dealing with here?
Dr. Fraiser: Something not humanly possible. Not as far as I know.
Teal’c: Then she may indeed be not of this planet.
Carter: As far as we knew up until now, all human life in the galaxy was transported to two other planets from Earth by the Goa’uld. Now the odds of a totally alien lifeform evolving to look exactly like us is astronomical.

Jonas: What reason would she have to hide anything?
Carter: Fear.

Dr. Fraiser: Antarctic cod can live in water so cold other fish would develop ice crystals in their blood. Now they’ve had forty million years or so to adapt to the change of temperature in the water and they’ve developed this protein that acts like antifreeze.
Carter: They’re fish.
Dr. Fraiser: Given enough time, evolution can do some pretty amazing things.

Dr. Fraiser: Look, we know that humans can become much more powerful beings. We’ve seen it happen with Daniel.
Carter: With the help of other powerful beings.

Hammond: How’s he doing?
Carter: We’re doing everything we can, sir.
Hammond: I spoke with the To’kra. They said this might be beyond their help but they’re sending someone anyway.
Carter: His best chance is Aiyana, sir.

Carter: Sir. I don’t know if you can hear me. The To’kra have offered you a deal. There’s a symbiote that needs a host. They think it could cure you, now it may be your only chance. It would only be temporary. It would come out of you as soon as they found another host. Sir, are you getting any of this?
O’Neill: Carter.
Carter: Yeah, I’m right here.
O’Neill: Over my dead body.


Richard Fleming: I know what happened to you. I know about Adrian Conrad.
Carter: Who are you?
Richard Fleming: They never shut the project down, Major. And now it’s out of control.
Carter: What project?
Richard Fleming: You have to protect me. They know that I—

Carter: You knew who Adrian Conrad was, didn’t you?
Jonas Quinn (Corin Nemec): Well I memorized all your mission reports. I just don’t want people around here to start thinking I’m “strange”.
Carter: People don’t think you’re strange.
Jonas: What about Colonel O’Neill?
Carter: Let’s get some lunch.

Carter: I’d like to see his lab if I may.
Sheriff Knox: There was a fire last night at Immunitech. The place was gutted.

Carter: Nice lunch.
Jonas: I’m really starting to enjoy this, ah, traditional American food.
Carter: We have another tradition. It’s called hardened arteries.

Teal’c: Our attempts to gather information from the town have proved equally fruitless.
Jonas: I wouldn’t say that. Don’t tell me you haven’t noticed how strangely people have been acting around here.
Carter: What are you talking about?
Jonas: Well for instance, that man there, right behind Teal’c? He hasn’t realized it, but he’s put eight cubes of sugar in his coffee. That lady over at the counter? Has been reading the same article for half-an-hour. Since we sat down, that waitress has dropped her tray twice. The cook has gotten three orders wrong, including my hamburger. Which I ordered medium rare but is in fact well-done. I’ve been noticing similar behavior all morning. It’s like the entire town’s half-asleep.

Sheriff Knox: Two months ago, another Immunitech researcher named Peter Stouffer disappeared. The case was never solved.
Carter: Why didn’t you tell me this?
Sheriff Knox: The town’s been through some rough times, Major. Shipyard shut down two years ago, put everybody out of work. When Immunitech came along they brought a lot of money to the area.
Carter: So nobody wants to hear anything bad about them.

Carter: What did happen at the bar?
Teal’c: We were met with hostility.
Carter: You didn’t say anything weird, did you?
Jonas: Why are you looking at me?

Teal’c: Still, the people of this town are behaving strangely. {Carter looks at him.} Even for humans.

Jonas: You have got to teach me how to do that.
Carter: Wormhole theory, motorcycle riding, lockpicking.
Jonas: Not necessarily in that order.

Sheriff Knox: What about this one?
Carter: He’s an alien. The humans don’t really trust him. {Jonas looks a little surprised.} We’ll have to kill him.

Agent Singer: The humans have no idea what’s going on here.
Carter: Oh…. I wouldn’t exactly say that. {she zats them.} You guys aren’t nearly as smart as you think you are.

Jonas: So when we were in the Sheriff’s office, you were in complete control?
Carter: That’s right.
Jonas: And you felt it absolutely necessary to shoot me.
Carter: Had to make it look good. {Jonas doesn’t seem convinced.} Let’s get some lunch.


Shadow Play

The Other Guys

Carter: How come you’re not smiling?
Jonas: Should I be?
Carter: Well it is your first time being captured by a Goa’uld.
Jonas: Huh. Funny.

O’Neill: What are you doing here?!
Felger: Stand easy. We’re here to rescue you!
Carter: Did he say “we”?
Felger: That’s right. I have Coombs with me.
O’Neill: Why look, everybody! He’s got Coombs with him!


Malek: This is the base of the Tau’ri. Why are there Jaffa?
Carter: Rebel warriors.
Malek: Jaffa who have turned against the Goa’uld. I did not realize their ranks had grown to such a number.
Carter: Hundreds more are operating as a fifth column among the Goa’uld.
O’Neill: Just like you.
Carter: Many of these Jaffa had to evacuate their rebel base a few months ago.
Malek: I see.
O’Neill: Is that going to be a problem?
Malek: Not for us.
O’Neill: Good.

O’Neill: Oo. Anybody else feel that?
Carter: The tingling sensation is caused by the energy field. It’s not causing any physical damage, so there’s nothing to worry about, sir.
O’Neill: No I like it. It’s good.


Commander Tagar: From our study of the ancient temple, we have been able to deduce the Stargate was an interplanetary transportation device.
But we haven’t determined how to make a connection with the many worlds described in the writings in the temple.
Carter: It took us awhile to get the hang of it too.

O’Neill: Qu’est-ce que c’est?
Dollen: We call it tretonin, Colonel. It is our greatest scientific discovery.
Carter: How so?
Dollen: Major Carter, from what you have told me of your world people suffer from a myriad of illnesses, many of them are untreatable. Tretonin makes our immune systems impervious to any ailment. We live in perfect health.

Malek: As you know, memories passed on genetically by the queen allow them to be born with the collective knowledge of their lineage.
Kelmaa: It is possible that the queen that spawned him was unable to pass on this information to her progeny.
O’Neill: Unable?
Malek: The knowledge imparted on her young by a queen is done so voluntarily.
Kelmaa: In this case, if nothing were passed on to the symbiote it would be, as you say, an empty vessel.
Carter: Can you remove it without harming the host?
Kelmaa: Possibly. Although such a procedure would be dangerous.

O’Neill: Oh come on, Carter, face it. With all their high morals and fancy preaching about coexisting with humans, we are just a nice place to live.
Carter: I don’t think that we would just lie outright and doom thousands of innocent people.
O’Neill: The Tok’ra laying there on that table just did.
Dollen: Egeria has awakened.


Carter: To tell you the truth, sir, I didn’t know what to say. She caught me completely off-guard.
Hammond: You did the right thing, Major. Our official policy is to deny everything.
Carter: Unfortunately in this case I don’t think it’s going to be enough.

Al Martell: You’re saying little green men helped you build this?
Carter: Actually, they’re grey.

Jonas: Fairbanks?
Carter: Better than Roswell.

O’Neill: Okay. Let’s go home.
Carter: Well, sir, it’s possible that when the hyper-drive was brought online no one fully accounted for the instability of the naquadria.
O’Neill: Who does?
Carter: Well what I’m saying is, if I don’t know where we are, I can’t plot a course for home.

Carter: Sir, based on the amount of time we spent in hyperspace, I’d estimate we’re at least twelve hundred light years from Earth.
O’Neill: How does that help us?
Carter: Ah, it doesn’t.

Unnatural Selection

O’Neill: Don’t get me wrong, flattery goes a long way with me. But if you’re going where I think you’re going with this—
Thor: When it became clear to the Asgard High Council that the war with the Replicators could not be won, a plan was devised—a trap was set. One made possible by you.
Carter: By us?
Thor: The android Reese that you discovered and provided to us for study retained a single core command in her base programming, which we believed all Replicators would still follow.
Carter: And you were able to reactivate it.
Thor: No. The android was damaged beyond repair. However, the key command was activated within her neural network, amplified, and broadcast through subspace throughout the known universe.
Carter: What was the command?
Thor: To come forth.
Jonas: You instructed every Replicator out there to come to you.
O’Neill: I have a theory why you lost the war.
Thor: The command was only given once the trap was set.
Jonas: What was the trap?
Thor: A time-dilation device, generating a field radius of point one-six light years.
Carter: Wow. That’s some trap.

Thor: We have done all that we can and failed, O’Neill. You and your team represent our last hope.
O’Neill: Yeah. Great. So, no pressure. Right?
Thor: If you have in fact made your decision not to undertake this task, I will inform the Council.
O’Neill: Just… give me a minute here, okay?
Teal’c: Are you reconsidering, O’Neill?
O’Neill: I’m considering reconsidering.
Jonas: Well there has to be other options.
Thor: We believe there is no alternative plan of action.
Carter: Thor, I don’t think you realize what you’re asking us to do.
Thor: In the past, your projectile weapons have been most effective.
O’Neill: Yeah, well we don’t have any projectile weapons with us at the moment, and according to Carter we’re a long way from— home?

O’Neill: They didn’t go for it.
Carter: They didn’t approve the mission?
O’Neill: No, they did that. Once they knew the stakes and the whole “fate of the Universe” stuff. Both the president and Hammond realized we had no choice. He sends good luck, God speed, and all those things he says when he thinks we’re going to die.
Carter: So what didn’t they go for?
O’Neill: The name I suggested.
Carter: For the ship?
O’Neill: Yeah.
Carter: Yeah. Sir, we can’t call it the Enterprise.
O’Neill: Why not?
Carter: The code name for the project is Prometheus. What’s wrong with that?
O’Neill: It’s a Greek tragedy. Who wants that?
Carter: Okay. The X-303 it is then.

Thor: Time is now progressing faster within the field.
Carter: They reversed it?
Thor: By a factor of ten squared.
O’Neill: What is with you people? Time machines are nothing but trouble. Even we know that.

Jonas: This can’t be the only structure on the entire planet.
O’Neill: I’d be willing to bet the bugs ate everything else.
Jonas: Then where are they?
Carter: Sir, you’re not gonna like this.
Jonas: What is it?
Teal’c: This planet’s surface appears to be covered with Replicator blocks.

Sight Unseen

Hammond: I take it that’s the artifact you mean. What is it?
Carter: Actually we’re not sure.
O’Neill: I’d say it’s some kind of bug zapper, General.
Carter: All I know is it’s emitting energy.

Carter: You only saw a flash of this creature. Are you sure it wasn’t some kind of hallucination?
Jonas: Are you suggesting I’m delusional?
O’Neill: No! No. It’s just… possible that you were seeing something that wasn’t entirely…. Yes, that’s what we’re suggesting.

O’Neill: You could come with.
Carter: Sir?
O’Neill: Fishing, Carter. I’m going fishing.
Carter: You know I’m planning on studying the artifact.
O’Neill: Yes. It’s always something, isn’t it.
Carter: Oh come on, sir. We both know the only you asked is because you knew I had something else to do.
O’Neill: No, really, I think you should come. Fish. Fish some more….

Carter: How are you doing?
Jonas: Oh, well the possibility of my being insane has interfered with my ability to relax.

Carter: Just what we need: a conspiracy theorist.
Jonas: Who happens to be right about there being a conspiracy.

Smoke & Mirrors

O’Neill: Hey. I’m back. What’d I miss?
Carter: Sir, Senator Kinsey is dead. He was shot.
O’Neill: What?
Jonas: Yeah. It’s been all over the news for three days.
O’Neill: I’ve been on vacation.

Hammond: I’m sorry to have to do this, but these men are here to escort you to Peterson. From there you’ll be flown to Andrews and then turned over to the civilian authorities in Washington.
Carter: Sir, what is this?
Hammond: Colonel O’Neill is under arrest for the murder of Senator Kinsey.
O’Neill: What?

Carter: It’s a fake. All the mimic devices were switched.
O’Neill: Someone duplicated duplicators?

Agent Malcolm Barrett: What exactly are you implying here, Major? That the N.I.D. had a hand in the assassination of a U.S. senator?
Carter: Very few organizations have the resources to pull off something like this.
Agent Barrett: And the man accused of the crime happens to be one of them.
Carter: The SGC is not behind this.

Carter: What are we doing out here, Agent Barrett?
Agent Barrett: My office is bugged. It’s standard procedure to record all conversations that take place at N.I.D. Headquarters. What I’m about to tell you, Major, nobody else can know. Especially my superiors.
Carter: What are you talking about?
Agent Barrett: There’s a cancer at the N.I.D. A shadow organization that operates outside the law. It’s time they were exposed for who they really are.
Carter: I agree.
Agent Barrett: The Prometheus incident, that was the last straw. After that I was called to the White House for an assignment.
Carter: What does this have to do with Colonel O’Neill?
Agent Barrett: Senator Kinsey was working for me. He was about to give me enough evidence to bring down the entire leadership of the shadow group.
Carter: How did you convince him to do that?
Agent Barrett: Let’s just say I know about a few of the skeletons in the Senator’s closet. And it is an election year.
Carter: You blackmailed him.
Agent Barrett: I’ll do whatever it takes to bring these people down, Major.

Paradise Lost

O’Neill: Carter.
Carter: Colonels.
Maybourne: Major.
O’Neill: Jonas?

Carter: It just… it feels like we just lost Daniel. And I don’t know if I can…


Teal’c: Nirrti is most interested in creating the perfect human host in order to increase her power.
O’Neill: So. She’s at it again.
Carter: No, sir. This is worse.
Dr. Fraiser: Sam’s right. Up to now, Nirrti’s been using Eugenics. Like with Cassandra’s people. Selectively breeding only those that demonstrated specific genetic attributes.
Carter: With a machine that can alter DNA and a population with which to experiment, Nirrti could create a new host or even alter the DNA of her current one.
Jonas: A Goa’uld with the powers of a Hok’taur.



Carter: When the local sun sets and it gets dark, you can actually see luminous layer of ionized gas around the dying core expanding.
O’Neill: Fascinating.
Carter: You don’t care.
O’Neill: Hey, I like gas as much as the next guy.

Corso: You’re an officer in your home world’s military, you’re a scientist, an explorer, and apparently you’re a pretty fair mechanic.
Carter: And I make a mean soufflé.

Corso: So what does it mean, Samantha?
Carter: My father wanted a boy.

The Changeling

Dr. Fraiser: I’ve never heard of a Jaffa fainting before, let alone you.
Teal’c: I did not faint, Dr. Fraiser.
Carter: Sorry Teal’c, but you did. One minute I was talking to you about the upcoming mission and the next you were laying flat on your back.

Carter: Maybe you were just bored with what I was saying. Oh. Fine. On that note I’ll say goodnight.
Dr. Fraiser: Goodnight Sam.
Carter: Prescribe him some warm milk.


Carter: Sir I’ve been scanning for naquadah traces with the ship’s sensors in an effort to determine the location of the Stargate. So far I’ve got nothing.
Teal’c: Could the information on the cartouche be incorrect?
Carter: It hasn’t been wrong yet.
Jonas: If they don’t accept our apology finding the Stargate’s going to be the least of our problems.


Carter: Sir, if we’re right about this and Ba’al no longer has any knowledge of what’s happening on the planet, it’s possible we could free these people. If the System Lords think the planet’s worthless then we wouldn’t have to worry about someone coming in and taking his place.
Hammond: Did they ask for our help?
O’Neill: Mm, not exactly.

Teal’c: We have encountered many strange phenomenon, Jonas Quinn. But I have yet to meet anyone who ca see the future.
Carter: It goes against all the laws of physics as we understand them.

Carter: It’s hard to believe that Yu hasn’t been destroyed yet.
Sina: Given that he is the only System Lord still in opposition to Anubis, his persistence is remarkable.
O’Neill: You go Yu.

Carter: You think Nirrti has something to do with this.
Jonas: It’s very possible. She had me in that gene-splicing machine for over an hour. Maybe she did something to me.

Jonas: We changed the wany things played out, which would seem to indicate the future isn’t predetermined. But by doing so we fulfilled an ancient prophecy. A thousand years ago someone in that village predicted that this would happen. Now how do you explain that?
Carter: Maybe it was just a lucky guess.

Full Circle

Hammond: Colonel, how’d you come by this intel?
O’Neill: I didn’t say?
Hammond: No, you didn’t.
O’Neill: Daniel told me.
Jonas: You saw Dr. Jackson?
O’Neill: Actually it’s not the first time.
Carter: Well is he all right?
What else did he say?
O’Neill: Woah. wait. You guys don’t think I’m… nuts or anything like that?
Teal’c: I too have recently seen Daniel Jackson.
Carter: Really?
O’Neill: Why didn’t you say something?
Teal’c: Why did you not say?
O’Neill: Well to be honest I wasn’t quite sure it was really happening the first time.

Carter: Daniel, what is it?
Jackson: I’m an Ancient.
Carter: What?
Jackson: Not me, but the others like me. They’re the Ancients.

Jackson: The Goa’uld Anubis used to be figured out how to ascend.
Teal’c: He was believed to have been dead for quite some time.
Jackson: The others didn’t want him.
Jonas: Well that’s understandable.
Jackson: They sent him back. At least they tried. But not all the way.
Carter: What is he now?
Jackson: He’s still some form of energy.
