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.

Dr. Janet Fraiser (Teryl Rothery): This can’t be.
Carter: She’s infected, isn’t she?
Fraiser: No she’s not.
Carter: Well what’s wrong then?
Fraiser: There are traces of the element the Stargate is made of in her blood.
Carter: Naquadah?
Fraiser: Yeah.

Hammond: What happened?
Fraiser: We counted 1,432 dead. I believe we may be indirectly responsible.
Hammond: How?
Fraiser: It’s possible someone from Earth brought a normally harmless bacteria to that planet. It learned some traits from a local organism and mutated into the most deadly infectious strain I’ve ever encountered.

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

O’Neill: This is fun. Teal’c spins around on his chair. Only eight hours to go. Sweet.

Carter: You feel like telling me your name?
Cassandra: Cassandra.
Carter: Hi Cassandra.
Cassandra: I hurt.
Carter: Where?

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?

Teal’c: We must get to the Stargate.
O’Neill: No argument from me!

Teal’c: This Goa’uld Nirrti, he once sent an emissary of peace to negotiate a treaty concerning a stargate Apophis had taken control of. The negotiation was a ploy. The Stargate was destroyed.
O’Neill: How?
Teal’c: As soon as he entered the Stargate there was a massive explosion.
O’Neill: The girl.

Carter: I have to go.
Cassandra: You promised you’d never leave me alone.
Carter: I’ll come back, okay? I’ll be back. You’re very brave, remember?
Cassandra: I’m very brave.
Carter: I have to close the door.

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

Cassandra: Are we going to die?
Carter: No. We are not going to die.

O’Neill: Alright, why don’t you guys clear out. No one moves. Right.

Cassandra: We’re both very brave. I love you.
Carter: I love you too.

Cassandra: What’s that?
O’Neill: We have a rule here on Earth. Every kid has got to have a dog. This is a dog. And he’s yours.
