Major Lorne (Kavan Smith): I’m not quite sure how to explain this, sir, but there’s been an accident. It’s Sam. She claims she’s not the Major Carter we know.
Hammond: What’s that supposed to mean?
Major Lorne: She says she’s from a parallel universe.
Carter: There must be some reason why I was brought here, of all places. I need to know what was happening in that lab.
Major Lorne: I’m not authorized to give you that information.
Carter: Maybe I could talk to Daniel. Is he here?
Major Lorne: Dr. Jackson was captured by the forces of the Ori several weeks ago.
Carter: Okay. What about Colonel Mitchell? Cameron Mitchell.
Major Lorne: The 302 pilot, went down over Antarctica?
Carter: That’s right. Is he here?
Major Lorne: I have no idea where he is. The last I heard he quit the military.
Carter: Teal’c? Vala?
Major Lorne: Teal’c went back to the Jaffa several years ago, and if you’re talking about Vala Mal Doran, I hate to break it to you but she is currently occupying a cell at Area 51. Care to take a stab at anyone else?
Dr. Lee: Major Carter was developing a process by which we could extract energy from parallel universes.
Carter: And you knew about this?
Major Lorne: Knowing and understanding are two totally different things.
Hammond: Three years ago, the Goa’uld System Lord Anubis launched an attack on Earth. We had no choice but to reveal the existence of the Stargate program to the world.
Major Lorne: People panicked. THere was rioting in the streets. The President had to declare martial law.
Hammond: The diplomatic fallout was even worse.
Hammond: You weren’t here for the riots. You didn’t see American citizens shooting each other over food, water and gasoline. Hank Landry brought us back from the brink of chaos.
Carter: That was three years ago.
Hammond: The threat is still out there!
Carter: That’s the problem. It always will be.
Carter: I’m sorry, I probably shouldn’t have come.
Mitchell: Oh no. You wanted to see it for yourself. The price of sticking up for your principles. Take a good look.
Carter: The Rodney I know is a master of subtle persuasion.
McKay: Hm. You’re lying again, aren’t you?
