                                    "A HUNDRED DAYS"

                                           By

                                      Brad Wright




               Alien Planet. Two moons can be seen in the sky.

               SG-1 is sitting with a native woman on a hillside over looking 
               a large body of water at night.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         "So, Laira, When's the big show gonna 
                         start?"
 
               
                                     LAIRA
                         "Soon, be patient."

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         "Oh, I'm patient. I'm nothing if not 
                         patient. When's it start?"
 
               
                                     LAIRA
                         "Is he always like this?"

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         "Quite frequently."

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         "Thank you, Teal'c."

               
                                     DANIEL
                         "Laira, we haven't seen anything you 
                         could call "fire rain" these past few 
                         nights...how come you're sure it's gonna 
                         to fall tonight?"
 
               
                                     LAIRA
                         "It begins this night each year."

               
                                     CARTER
                         "Whoa...the same night every year? That 
                         doesn't make sense...I mean unless the 
                         planet's orbit travels through a debris 
                         field like an asteroid belt, in which 
                         case..."
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         "Please...don't suck the fun out of 
                         this..."
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         "Sorry, sir."

               
                                     LAIRA
                         "When I was a child, my father told 
                         me that the fire rain was the tears 
                         of our ancestors longing to be reunited."
 
                         
               
               A meteor is seen streaking across the sky.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         "A falling star...that's, uh that's 
                         what we call "fire rain" where we come 
                         from. In our culture, you're supposed 
                         to make a wish."
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         "On Chulak we call it Tal Pak Ryn."
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         "Which means, uh...falling star."

               
               Sam smiles at their exchange.

               
                                     LAIRA
                         "What do you think, Jack? Was it worth 
                         the effort?"
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         "Oh, yeah,...yeah, I'm a huge fan of 
                         fireworks."
 
               
               Suddenly, a large meteor shoots across the sky. Flames can be 
               seen momentarily.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         "Whoa...Carter, how close was that?"
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         "Close, sir."

               
                                     DANIEL
                         "How big?"

               
                                     CARTER
                         "Big."

               
                                     DANIEL
                         "Thought so."

               
                                     CARTER
                         "I was...rather concerned for a minute 
                         there, sir."
 
               
                                     LAIRA
                         "I don't understand."

               
                                     CARTER
                         "Laira, that's what we call a near miss. 
                         If that meteor had struck the ground 
                         instead of bouncing off of the atmosphere...."
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         "This...is an annual event?"

               
                                     LAIRA
                         "Yes, though it grows more spectacular 
                         every year. By tomorrow evening the 
                         entire sky..." (She stops and looks 
                         around as she notices the looks on everyone's 
                         faces.) "What's wrong?"
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         "I'll make some more observations tonight, 
                         sir."
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         "I'm gonna check the, uh, geological 
                         record in the morning..."
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         "I'll...make a wish."

               
               More meteors are seen streaking across the sky.

                         "See this bright dot? It represents 
                         your world, Edora. Now it orbits your 
                         sun in a big circle like this and crosses 
                         through an asteroid belt up here at

                         belt isn't uniform, so certain orbits 
                         in certain years must pass through a 
                         denser debris field. Can you ever remember

                         on the second day of the fire rain,

               Jack walks further away from her, kicking at boulders and rocks.
 
               
               
               Night has fallen on Edora. The survivors are sitting down to 
               a meal that Laira has prepared.
 
               
                                     LAIRA
                         "Thanks be to the ancestors that we 
                         live and have a roof to shield our heads. 
                         Thanks be to the ancestors that we have 
                         food to sustain and nourish us."
 
               
               Laira is interrupted as Jack opens the exterior door, finally 
               returning from the former Stargate site.

               Jack looks at Laira and then turns to leave.

               
               
               Jack looks down at his hands which are holding his hat. He slowly 
               walks over to the table and takes a seat.

               Jack is lying on the floor. Laira comes around in front of him, 
               wearing her nightgown and walks to the washbasin to wash her 
               face. She notices Jack, who is awake and watching her. She picks

                         me is never going to let go of what 
                         I left behind."

                         at the table.) "What?"
 
               
                                     LAIRA

               Jack takes the radio from her and then he gets up and heads out 
               of the house. Garan follows.
 
               
               
               
               
               
               
               Jack and Garan begin digging in earnest. Teal'c continues to 
               pick away from underneath. Laira approaches as Jack continues 
               to dig. He pauses momentarily to look at her and an unspoken 
               message is sent between them. Then he continues to dig with Garan. 
               Moments later, he and Teal'c create a hole and Jack is able to 
               see Teal'c.

                         Edorans arriving home and being greeted 
                         by those who stayed behind. Jack is 
                         standing in front of the other three 
                         members of SG-1. He is still in Edoran 
                         garments.

                         (She stops as Jack is no longer listening,

                         expecting to go home again."
 
               They turn to watch Jack as he approaches Laira.

               Sam over hears the exchange and looks away, unable to watch any 
               longer...

                         "I belong here."

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         "I'll come back...soon...we still have 
                         that treaty to talk about..."

                         "Our two worlds are going to be...friends."

               Jack walks reluctantly away to join the other SG-1 members and 
               Laira crosses her hands and places them on her abdomen and looks 
               down at them. Then she looks in Jack's direction again.
 
               
               THE END
