Jackson: Most Goa’uld that we’ve encountered that have enslaved ancient human populations have taken on roles of other culture’s deities. Ra, Apophis, Hathor, from the Egyptian pantheon—
O’Neill: Yeah yeah yeah. We got it.
Jackson: Well if these people were already Christians when they were taken from Earth It suggests that this Goa’uld is playing—
O’Neill: God? As in God, God? That’s a bit of a stretch, don’t you think?
Teal’c: I know of no Goa’uld capable of showing the necessary compassion or benevolence that I have read of in your Bible.
O’Neill: You read the Bible, Teal’c?
Teal’c: It is a significant part of your Western culture. Have you not read the Bible, O’Neill?
O’Neill: Oh, yeah. Yeah, not all of it. Actually I’m listening to it on tape. Don’t tell me how it ends.

Simon: The time of sacrifice is at hand. The elders will have to perform the trepanning ritual tonight to cleanse her.
Jackson: Oh no.
O’Neill: What?
Jackson: It was a procedure often done in the Middle Ages. They drill a hole in the person’s head. By drilling a hole the evil spirits are released thus saving the person from eternal damnation.
O’Neill: Thus saving a person?
Jackson: Well they didn’t call them the Dark Ages because it was dark.

Jackson: I think we were wrong about this Goa’uld. He isn’t playing God. He’s playing the Devil.
