The Serpent’s Lair

O’Neill: Captain Carter?
Carter: Sir?
O’Neill: Were you able to put enough C-4 around this ship to make a dent?
Carter: We placed charges where they should generate secondary explosions, so… yes sir. Should make a helluva dent.
O’Neill: Thank you.
Carter: Given enough time, I might be able to figure out—
O’Neill: Negative. We should expect some of their reinforcements through that door any second. Stand by to detonate your charges on my order.
Carter: Yes sir.
Jackson: Wait.
O’Neill: Daniel! If we don’t stop them now we may never stop them.
Jackson: Yeah, I know that. {he find some C-4 in his vest}. Let’s just make as big a dent as possible, okay?
Carter: Ready and awaiting your order, sir.
: Okay. Well, I suppose now is the time for me to say something profound. […] Nothing comes to mind. Let’s do it.

Carter after mistakenly biting Jack: Sorry sir. It’s just so dark.
O’Neill: Aw Carter! It’s okay. I like your attitude.

O’Neill: Carter. If someone comes in here… bite ’em in the hand.
Carter: Yes sir.

Bra’tac: Perhaps when the warships of your world attack, we may be able—
Carter: Ah ah ah. Excuse me. Did you say, “ships of our world”?
Bra’tac: Surely you have such vessels.
Jackson: Well, we have a number of… shuttles.
O’Neill: Shuttles.
Bra’tac: These “shuttles”, they are a formidable craft?
O’Neill: Oh, yeah. Yeah. {to himself} Bad day.

O’Neill: Our time is up, we have got to go!
Carter: Punch it.

Carter: It’s gonna be a beautiful sunset, sir.
O’Neill: You know, Captain. This wasn’t such a bad day after all.
Carter: Not bad at all.
Bra’tac: We die well, Teal’c.
Teal’c: More than that, old friend. We die free.
O’Neill: Or not.

Hammond: SG-1, there’s someone who’d like to see you.
Carter: Daniel!
O’Neill: Ha ha ha! Space Monkey.

In the Line of Duty

O’Neill: Carter? You okay?
Carter: Yeah fine. Thanks.

Carter: Not all Goa’uld are the same. There are a few that oppose the System Lords and their ways. You must have heard of the Tok’ra.
Teal’c: Every Goa’uld seeks power for his own reason and would betray his own brother to achieve it.
Carter: Some seek power for a greater purpose. Not Goa’uld is an enemy to the people of this planet. The Tok’ra are real. No matter what Apophis has told you.
Teal’c: I have yet to meet one.
Carter: You have now. I am Jolinar of Malk-shur.


The Gamekeeper

Carter: I like what they’ve done to the place.
O’Neill: I’m not so sure I like what the place has done to them.

Carter: Daniel, what’s going on?
Jackson: This can’t be real.
Carter: Who are these people?
Jackson: They’re my parents.

Carter: Didn’t that seem just a little too easy?
O’Neill: Yes it did. Let’s go home.


Carter: He isn’t a Goa’uld. I don’t think these are real Jaffa either.
O’Neill: How do you know?
Carter: First clue was his voice.
O’Neill: Yeah, I noticed that too.

Carter: Lately I get this weird feeling when I’m near Teal’c.
O’Neill: Hey, who doesn’t.

Jackson: I’ve used it before without any side effects. And look. No glasses!
Carter: That looks like a side effect to me.

Thor’s Chariot

Hammond: This is not our world. Is it really any of our concern?
Teal’c: The destruction of the hammer device to save my life may have caused this. If so, I am responsible.
O’Neill: General. I gave the order.
Jackson: I fired the staff at the machine.
Carter: And I… was there.

Gairwyn: Do you not think me worthy? {Thor disappears} Why has he forsaken me?
Carter: It’s just a holographic recording. It’s being projected through that hole in the ceiling.
Jackson: Oh. Yeah. If you say so.

Carter: So what does it mean?
Jackson: I’m not sure. Maybe somehow we have to prove that we’re worthy before he’ll trust us with his might.
Carter: Which you still think is a weapon?
Jackson: I’m hoping so at this point.

Carter: This is uncanny. They look just like the Roswell grays back home.
Jackson: I guess there’s some truth to those stories after all.
Carter: You think the Asgards may have visited Earth?
Jackson: Why not.

Thor: I am the Supreme Commander of the Asgard fleet.
Gairwyn: How can this be?
Thor: In the ten span since I created this world you are he first to reach this level of contact. You have finally grown wise enough to see me in my true form.
Gairwyn: These are the wise ones. I would never have come this far without their help.
Carter: Gairwyn. It’s a hologram. It was probably recorded a thousand years ago. It can’t hear you.
Thor: On the contrary. My image is a living transmission. I am communicating to you from my quarters aboard the Asgard ship Beliskner.
Jackson: You mean you’re the real Thor? This is, this is… this great. We need your help. The Goa’uld are here.
Thor: Impossible. Cimmeria is a safe world.
Jackson: Yeah. We sort of messed that up.

O’Neill: Daniel, you look suspiciously empty-handed.
Jackson: Yeah, uh…
O’Neill: Yeah, what?
Jackson: There’s nothing.
Carter: We did meet the real Thor.
O’Neill: Didja now? Nice fella?

Message in a Bottle

Carter: If Daniel’s right, this artifact has been doing this since neanderthals were still the dominant species on Earth.
O’Neill: Ah, that takes me back.

Carter: You think it might be a booby trap?
Teal’c: Booby?

Hammond: The NID people want to see it.
Carter: Even knowing what it’s done to the Colonel?
Jackson: Especially knowing what it’s done to the Colonel.

Carter: It won’t take us without a fight, sir.
Hammond: Damn right.


Jackson: Okay, so we’re alright. Ry’ac is alright. We just have to get his mind back. And how do we do that?
Carter: Deprogramming.
O’Neill: It’s not exactly the kind of thing you want to put a kid through.


O’Neill: You know I can navigate my way across a galaxy, but I get lost every time I come to Washington.
Carter: Don’t worry, sir. These are my old stomping grounds.
O’Neill: Sorry to hear that.

Jacob Carter (Carmen Argenziano): When George told me you were up for the Airman for your work in… What the hell was that again?
Carter: Analysis of Deep Space Radar Telemetry.
Jacob Carter: Right.

Carter: I have a hard time believing it’s one of ours. Every member at the SGC knows how important our work is.
Hammond: I agree with Captain Carter. Much more likely political.
Carter: Senator Kinsey?
O’Neill: Well if he knows, at least a dozen sycophants know.


Hammond: So Teal’c isn’t going to turn into just one of those things.
Carter: No sir. He’s going to turn into a whole lot of those things.

The Tok’ra : Part One

Hammond: You don’t think it was just a dream?
Carter: No sir. It was real. I could tell.
Hammond: You could tell.
Carter: Yes sir. I don’t know how, exactly. But I can tell.
O’Neill: So we’re supposed to buy into this… ESP or whatever it is?

Jackson: You said their eyes glowed. Are you really sure that these Tok’ra are what Jolinar said they were? I mean, good guys for lack of a better word.
Carter: Yes.
O’Neill: Yes? Just “yes”? Could you elaborate a little?

Carter: Be careful, Daniel.
Jackson: Why?
Carter: Because they’re Goa’uld.
Cordesh: We are not Goa’uld {as his eyes glow}.

Carter: …you don’t use the sarcophagus, yes?
Martouf: That’s correct. We believe to do so would drain the good from our hearts.
Jackson: I can vouch for that.

Jackson: Wait a minute. You think by form an alliance we mean we want to be hosts?
Garshaw: Well what other sort of alliance would a non-blended human and a Tok’ra want to have?
O’Neill: Well we do have a common enemy. How about friendship?
Carter: We could share information.
Teal’c: We can engage in battle side-by-side.

Martouf: Tell me of Jolinar’s last days.
Carter: Well it’s kind of weird. It’s like I’m left with these feelings, intuitions. I know this: she sacrificed herself to save me. That says a ton about her character as far as I’m concerned.

Carter: This must be what it feels like to be schizophrenic.

O’Neill: Colonel Makepeace. What are you doing here?
Makepeace: Colonel Hammond sent us to extract Captain Carter.
Carter: Why?
Makepeace: I’m afraid it’s your father, Captain. He’s in the hospital in serious condition.

O’Neill: You have to let her go home.
Garshaw: I’m afraid we cannot do that.
Carter: Why?
Garshaw: We have made our decision. We have decided not to accept your request for an alliance.
Cordesh: Therefore you shall be our guests. Until such time as we decide to move to another planet.

The Tok’ra : Part Two

Carter: You said that a symbiote can cure most problems in a human.
Garshaw: Yes.
Carter: Can it cure cancer?

Hammond: Captain Carter, I am truly sorry about your father but I have to question the wisdom of what you’re suggesting here. From what I’ve seen, this won’t be saving his life It’ll be more like giving his body to a Goa’uld.
Carter: No sir. More like letting one share it.
Hammond: Jacob knows a lot about Earth, this would be like handing over information to the Goa’uld.
Carter: To the Tok’ra!
Hammond: Are you sure there’s a difference?
O’Neill: Oh yes, sir. There’s a difference, believe me. I won’t even pretend to understand what that is, but there is one. One minute you’re talking to a Goa’uld, the next minute you’re talking to a regular guy.

Hammond: They were holding you prisoner, Colonel. Still are holding SG-3 and the rest of your team.
Carter: Only temporarily, sir. And they thought it was to protect us as much as them.
O’Neill: Yeah, I didn’t buy that one myself, sir.

Jacob: You do that a lot?
Carter: Yeah, once or twice a week.
Jacob: It beats the hell out of a shuttle on the back of a rocket.
O’Neill: Goes a lot further too.

Jacob: So these are the aliens you were telling me about?
Carter: Well I don’t know if I’d call them aliens.
Sort of half-alien I guess. I mean the outside is human and the inside is shared by a human and a symbiote. Martouf is actually two different souls, I guess, sharing the same body.
Jacob: And that’s what you want me to become? You gotta be kidding me.

Saroosh: Selmak is wonderful Tok’ra. She is selfless and caring. She is good company too. She has a wonderful sense of humor.
Carter: Well that’s good Dad. You can sit around for hours cracking yourself up.

Carter: Did we open the Gate or did they?
Selmak: We have no choice.

Carter: Do you have to go so soon?
Garshaw: Yeah, I have to go. Apparently I’m the oldest and wisest among us.


Carter: You gonna be okay?
O’Neill: I’m not dead, Captain. I’m just grounded for a few weeks.
Carter: If the bulletproof glass hadn’t slowed it down…
O’Neill: Oh please. Aliens are always poking me full of holes.

Carter: Are we prisoners?
Tonané (Rodney Grant): Oh… you’re free to go.
Carter: Can we have our weapons back?
Tonané: Okay.

Tonané: T’akaya, my friend! My, your coat shines beautifully today. {prompting Carter} A little flattering couldn’t hurt, Sam.
Carter: My, what big eyes you have.


Carter: Uh, Colonel. This Gate is plastic.

The Fifth Race

Carter: What’s it doing?
Tech: Chevron Eight is locked.

A Matter of Time

Hammond: Why would their code be coming through so slow?
Carter: I don’t know, but if we don’t open the iris—
O’Neill: The next thud we hear will be Henry Boyd’s team.

O’Neill: Permission to go in, sir.
Carter: Negative, sir.
O’Neill: What do you mean, negative?
Carter: I’m sorry, Colonel. With all due respect. But if I’m right, we can’t help them.

Carter: Sir, by some fluke of Stargate technology, we are witnessing something that the laws of physics say we can’t possibly witness.
O’Neill: We are witnessing good men die in slow motion, Captain.
Carter: You’re right, sir.
Hammond: Shut it down.

Carter: Even with the power cut it didn’t shut down.
O’Neill: How is that possible?
Carter: It must be deriving its power directly from the black hole.

Carter: It appears that our space-time has begun to warp, just like on P3W451.
O’Neill: Will you stop that!
Carter: We’re in trouble, sir.
O’Neill: Thank you. Think of something.

Carter: Do you know anything about quantum gravity?
Teal’c: Nothing.
Carter: Apparently neither do I.


Jackson: As I’ve been trying to tell the General and the good doctor here, I am not Machello. I am Daniel Jackson.
O’Neill: Here we go.
Jackson: I realize what I look like. But I’m telling you, that machine somehow switched us.
Fraiser: He, ah, knows a lot about Daniel.
Jackson: Ask me anything. Something only Daniel would know.
Carter: Okay. Who’s Cassandra?
Jackson: She’s a twelve-year-old girl we found abandoned on P8X-987.
O’Neill: P8X— ?
Carter: 987.
O’Neill: Alright, lucky guess.
Hammond: Where was the Stargate found?
Jackson: At a dig in Giza.
O’Neill: Alright, describe for me the dress your sister wore last week when I took her out.
Jackson: I don’t have a sister, Jack, and if I did, I wouldn’t let you near her.
Hammond: Okay, let’s assume you are Daniel Jackson. Then who the hell did we send home?

Serpent’s Song

One False Step

Carter: UAV is a go for launch, sir.
Hammond: Launch. {it does}
O’Neill: That never gets old. I love that.

Carter: We’ve introduced a number of foreign substances that could be responsible.
Dr. Fraiser: Okay, let’s set up over here.
O’Neill: And the UAV ran into that plant thing I showed you.
Jackson: I’ve been sneezing like crazy ever since we got here.
Carter: And I cut my hand and one of the aliens could have come in contact with my blood.
Teal’c: One of the aliens had lubricant from the UAV on its hands.
Dr. Fraiser: Okay, look. The fact is it could be somebody’s aftershave. Now how are they going to react when I try to run some tests?

O’Neill: Carter, what are you doing?
Carter: I’m looking for something that we can’t hear.

Jackson: That was your hunch?
Carter: I had a feeling that there was some sort of symbiotic relatonship between the aliens and the organisms. They probably don’t even realize it.
Jackson: Well how did you realize it?
O’Neill: Captain?
Carter: I— I talk to my plants.

Show and Tell

Carter: He’s not Goa’uld or Jaffa. I don’t sense any Naquadah. As far as I can tell he’s clean.
O’Neill: What’s he doing here?
Charlie (Jeff Gulka): I am here to warn you.

Carter: Dad, we have a little bit of a situation and we may need Selmak’s help.
Jacob (Carmen Argenziano): Selmak Selmak Selmak. I thought maybe you just wanted to see your old man.


Hammond: I’d like you to take this note along with you. Keep it in your breast pocket until you get on the other side. It’s fairly self-explanatory.
Carter: Sir, is everything all right?
Hammond: Everything’s fine. Time to ship out, Captain.

Jackson: We’re the first people in human history to go back in time… well, for all we know. If we could figure out how to do this again, just think of what we could do. We could actually visit Babylon. We could, we could— We could see the Great Wall of China being built.
Teal’c: Or prevent regrettable events from your history from ever occurring.
Carter: No. That’s exactly what we can’t do.
O’Neill: Why not?
Carter: Because of the Grandfather Paradox. If you went back fifty years and murdered your own grandfather, your own father would never have been born.
Jackson: So you’re saying that if we change our own past…
Carter: We could change our world in ways we can’t possibly imagine. We might even cease to exist. Along with everything and everyone we know.

O’Neill: This is a top secret facility. Anonymity does not go over big here.
Carter: We cannot tell them we’re from the future, sir.

O’Neill: Listen, I don’t know where we’re headed but they’ll probably try to split us up. So we’re not going to have much time to—
Carter: Escape and hopefully live out the rest of our lives without affecting history.
O’Neill: Or?
Carter: I can’t think of an “or” at the moment, sir.
Jackson: No “or”?
O’Neill: There’s an “or.”
Jackson: There’s an “or”?
Carter: Sir, you can’t just will something to happen because you want it to be a certain way.
O’Neill: Captain, where there’s a will there’s an “or.”

Hammond: Before I can even think of doing what’s asked of me in the note, I need to know who you are. And who gave it to you.
Carter: Oh my god. My name is Samantha Carter and you gave me the note, sir. Sir, before we left General Hammond gave me a note and told me to keep it in my vest pocket until I got to the other side.
Hammond: It’s addressed to me. In my handwriting.
O’Neill: What’s it say?
Hammond: “Help them”.

Carter: In order to preserve our past Catherine has to meet you years from now.
Jackson: So we go in disguise. Pretend to be… foreigners.
O’Neill: How are you going to do that?
Jackson: Well I speak twenty-three different languages. Pick one.

Cassie: Hello, Jack. Teal’c. Daniel? I hardly recognized you with hair!
O’Neill: Do… Do we know you?
Cassie: Sam will recognize me. Come closer.
Carter: Oh my god. Cassandra!
Cassie: Dear Sam.
O’Neill: Excuse me, who is this?
Carter: Cassandra.
O’Neill: Cassie’s thirteen years old.
Cassie: Not anymore, Jack. I’ve been expecting you my whole life in fact. You entered the Stargate a few seconds too soon. So the flare threw you far into the future.

Carter: Then you’ve been waiting for this to happen.
Hammond: Ever since we met. I almost didn’t let you go.
Carter: But if you didn’t, you would have changed your own history.
Hammond: It’s going to be a long debriefing, people. We’ll start in one hour.
O’Neill: Yes sir.
Hammond: Oh by the way, Colonel. With interest, you owe me five hundred thirty-nine dollars and fifty cents.
O’Neill: Yes sir.

Out of Mind

Trofsky: It’s okay, Dr. Carter. You’re in the SGC. You’re going to be fine.
Carter: SG-1?
Raully: I’m afraid they didn’t make it, Captain. I’m sorry.

Raully: Anyone with that technology would be a very powerful ally against Apophis.
Carter: Apophis? Isn’t he dead?

Jackson: I don’t understand. They said—
Carter: They’re Goa’uld, Daniel.
Jackson: What year is it?
Carter: 1999, more than likely.
Jackson: So this is all a hoax?
O’Neill: Big hoax. I’d say so.
Jackson: I have more questions, but that can wait.
