                                      STARGATE SG1

                                      Episode 715

                                       "CHIMERA"

                                           By

                                    Damian Kindler

               
               
               (Dream Sequence.)

               
               Daniel is at his old university, sitting in a room full of books 
               with some open in front of him. He has a dictaphone in his hand.
 
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Amulet is likely from the 12th dynastic 
                         period, inland markings suggest the 
                         royal house of Amu'net. Possibly a gift 
                         from the King and immediate family to 
                         commemorate a birth or coming of age 
                         or..
 
               
                                     SARAH
                         It's for luck. Royal goldsmiths made 
                         them for the King in the hopes that 
                         the floodwaters would rise again in 
                         the Nile, granting them a bountiful 
                         crop.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Good guess.

               
                                     SARAH
                         Doctor Jordan sent me a picture a few 
                         weeks ago; I suppose I had a bit of 
                         a head start.
 
               
               There's a brief pause while Daniel looks at Sarah.

               
                                     SARAH
                         Oh', I'm Sarah Gardner.

               
               Daniel is lying in bed with a memory recall device attached to 
               his temple. Osiris is standing next to the bed watching him sleep. 
               She also has a memory recall device attached to her temple.
 
               
               
               Sam is in a restaurant; she sits down at a table with a cup of 
               Coffee. A man walks up to her.
 
               
                                     PETE
                         Is this seat taken?

               
                                     SAM
                         Well no, but there's plenty of other 
                         empty..
 
               
               Pete sits down opposite her.

               
                                     SAM
                         Tables..

               
                                     PETE
                         Yeah, but none of them has beautiful, 
                         single women sitting at them.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Well thank you, but how do you know 
                         I'm single?
 
               
                                     PETE
                         There's no ring no your finger.

               
                                     SAM
                         I could have a boyfriend.

               
                                     PETE
                         You're having coffee by yourself at 
                         7:30 in the morning.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         You're very observant.

               
                                     PETE
                         I'm a cop.

               
                                     SAM
                         Well then, I feel compelled to warn 
                         you, most of the guys I have dated recently, 
                         have died.
 
               
                                     PETE
                         As in..

               
                                     SAM
                         Dead.

               
                                     PETE
                         How?

               
                                     SAM
                         Various circumstances.

               
                                     PETE
                         I'll risk it.

               
               Pete sits down even closer to her.

               
                                     PETE
                         How about dinner tonight? My motel room.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Your motel room?

               
                                     PETE
                         Yeah, I'm in town from Denver on a case. 
                         I'll order room service, open a box 
                         of wine..
 
               
                                     SAM
                         A box.

               
                                     PETE
                         Something with a duck on the front.
 
                         
               
               Sam pulls his head close and kisses him lightly on the lips.
 
               
               
                                     SAM
                         Stop it Pete.

               
                                     PETE
                         What are you talking about? I'm on a 
                         roll here. I haven't even shown you 
                         my badge yet.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         And I gotta' go.

               
                                     PETE
                         Come on Sam, call in sick. Spend the 
                         day with me; we'll go to the zoo.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         There's no zoo in Colorado Springs.
 
                         
               
                                     PETE
                         Bowling. There must be a bowling alley 
                         around here somewhere.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         I have to work.

               
                                     PETE
                         Can't the world wait one more day for 
                         more deep space telemetry?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Have you seen how much deep space there 
                         is out there?
 
               
               Sam kisses him quickly on the lips one more time.

               
                                     SAM
                         I'll see you tonight.

               
               Back at the SGC, Sam and Daniel are walking down one of the corridors.
 
               
               
                                     SAM
                         It jams the frequency the Goa'uld use 
                         for communication and the remote control 
                         devices like the ring transporters. 
                         Right now we're working on making it 
                         portable enough to..
 
               
               Daniel yawns loudly.

               
                                     SAM
                         At least pretend that it's interesting.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         No, it was very interesting. Please, 
                         go on.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Are you tired?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Ya' think? I had the weirdest dream 
                         last night.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         About what?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Uh' you know, working back in Chicago 
                         with Sarah. Before the Stargate program.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         How is that weird?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Things were all mixed up, my hair was 
                         different.. you know.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Well, no offence Daniel but it's not 
                         like you don't have some issues to work 
                         out.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Oh' yeah.

               
                                     SAM
                         Maybe you should talk to someone.

               
               They reach a lift and the doors open, Jack is in it.

               
                                     SAM
                         Colonel.

               
                                     JACK
                         Carter.

               
               Daniel yawns and points a thumb behind him.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Coffee.

               
                                     SAM
                         Talk to you later okay?

               
               Daniel walks off; Sam enters the lift with Jack. She starts humming 
               the Stargate theme tune.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Humming?

               
                                     SAM
                         I am?

               
                                     JACK
                         You are.

               
                                     SAM
                         Sorry.

               
                                     JACK
                         What's his name?

               
                                     SAM
                         No one.

               
                                     JACK
                         Humming.

               
                                     SAM
                         Pete.

               
                                     JACK
                         Pete?

               
                                     SAM
                         Pete Shannahan, he's a cop.

               
                                     JACK
                         Speeding again are we?

               
                                     SAM
                         He's from Denver, he's a friend of my 
                         brothers.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Set-up.

               
                                     SAM
                         Pathetic, I know.

               
                                     JACK
                         No, it's great.

               
                                     SAM
                         Really?

               
                                     JACK
                         Isn't it?

               
                                     SAM
                         Well it's not serious or anything.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         And yet it is humworthy.

               
                                     SAM
                         But Sir..

               
                                     JACK
                         But Carter it's none of my.. business. 
                         I'm just happy that you're happy about 
                         something else then.. quarks.
 
               
               Sam looks at Jack.

               
                                     JACK
                         Not bad with quarks huh?

               
                                     SAM
                         Excellent.

               
                                     JACK
                         A bit uncomfortable isn't it?

               
                                     SAM
                         Yeah, a bit.

               
               The lift doors open and Jack walks out.

               
                                     JACK
                         Good luck.

               
                                     SAM
                         Thank you Sir.

               
               Back at Daniel's place, he is in bed sleeping again. Osiris puts 
               her hand device to his head and an orange light comes from it 
               and then disappears. She attaches the small device to his head 
               once again.
 
               
               (Dream Sequence.)

               
               Daniel is in his research lab; Sarah walks in while carrying 
               some books.
 
               
                                     SARAH
                         Good morning.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Oh'.. hello. I'm sorry, I didn't hear 
                         you come in. I mean um'.. how are you?
 
                         
               
                                     SARAH
                         Fine.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, you settling in?

               
                                     SARAH
                         Well except for want of a decent cup 
                         of tea, I'm in heaven.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Good. It's good to hear.

               
                                     SARAH
                         You know, I must have read everything 
                         you've ever published.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Everything?

               
                                     SARAH
                         Yes.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         What a waste of time.

               
                                     SARAH
                         Please, your theories on the Hikish 
                         ruling dynasty are truly groundbreaking, 
                         if a little audacious. It was quite 
                         inspiring. In fact I referenced them 
                         in my doctoral thesis at Cambridge.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         You must have failed.

               
                                     SARAH
                         I just hope that I can live up to such 
                         talented company.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well if you're here then you have.. 
                         you are..
 
               
                                     SARAH
                         Stop, the flattery is overwhelming.
 
                         
               
               Daniel looks at Sarah a little bemusedly.

               
                                     SARAH
                         I should let you continue.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, I am gonna' continue.. you know 
                         I this good place for coffee. No, I'm 
                         sure they serve tea.
 
               
                                     SARAH
                         I'd like that, Doctor Jackson.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Daniel.

               
                                     SARAH
                         Daniel. You know I can't tell you how 
                         much I have looked forward to being 
                         here with you. Being able to pick your 
                         brain.
 
               
               Osiris takes the device off of Daniel's head and teleports away. 
               Daniel wakes up almost instantly afterwards.
 
               
               Sam and Pete are walking along a path outside, there's a field 
               behind them.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         That was great.

               
                                     PETE
                         Yeah, it was okay. I mean the company 
                         was fine.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Oh' come on, how can you not like 'Singing 
                         In The Rain?'
 
               
                                     PETE
                         I guess I've always been more of a Fred 
                         Astair fan.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         It's a classic.

               
                                     PETE
                         Woah, woah there lady. I believe the 
                         term classic is reserved for the likes 
                         of The French Connection, Dirty Harry, 
                         Serpico.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Cop movies.

               
                                     PETE
                         What's your point?

               
                                     SAM
                         This was romantic.

               
                                     PETE
                         Watching a man dance around in the rain 
                         with an umbrella?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Just because there were no guns or car 
                         chases.
 
               
                                     PETE
                         Or nudity.

               
                                     SAM
                         Yeah, well your chances of that are 
                         slim to none now.
 
               
                                     PETE
                         Have I ever told you what a good dancer 
                         I am?
 
               
               Back outside Sam's house.

               
                                     PETE
                         You know my case down here wraps up 
                         tomorrow.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Does that mean you're heading back to 
                         Denver?
 
               
                                     PETE
                         Actually I called my Captain and said 
                         I don't care if crime is running rampant 
                         up there.. I met this woman. This amazing 
                         person.. and we've got this thing going 
                         on.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         And what did he say?

               
                                     PETE
                         Get your ass back here or you're fired.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Too bad.

               
                                     PETE
                         I'm lying. I told him I'm taking two 
                         weeks vacation. Truth is.. Colorado 
                         Springs is very.. underrated.
 
               
               The pair of them kiss passionately.

               
                                     SAM
                         Pete..

               
                                     PETE
                         And it was going so well.

               
                                     SAM
                         It is.

               
                                     PETE
                         But..?

               
                                     SAM
                         It's getting late.

               
                                     PETE
                         It's seven o'clock.

               
                                     SAM
                         I have to get up really early.

               
                                     PETE
                         To go to work?

               
                                     SAM
                         Right..

               
                                     PETE
                         Which involves long arduous hours of 
                         you looking into a telescope. Sam, have 
                         I mentioned I'm a cop? I interrogate 
                         people for a living.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Are you saying you don't believe me?
 
                         
               
                                     PETE
                         Is this all going too fast for you? 
                         Because I can back off........ Give 
                         you 5 or 10 minutes.
 
               
               Sam laughs. Pete kisses her on the cheek.

               
                                     PETE
                         I'll call you.

               
                                     SAM
                         Right..

               
                                     PETE
                         Have I left yet..?

               
               Sam laughs again.

               
                                     PETE
                         It came from my legs.

               
               Pete walks away, leaving Sam outside her house.

               
               (Dream Sequence.)

               
               Daniel is sitting at a table, looking at some old books. Sarah 
               is there as well. She puts a cup of Coffee down on his table.
 
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Thank you.

               
               She picks the cup up away from him.

               
                                     SARAH
                         A little human contact first, if you 
                         please.
 
               
               Daniel kisses Sarah on the lips.

               
                                     SARAH
                         Was that so hard?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I'll live.

               
                                     SARAH
                         You've been here all night haven't you?
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         What, is it morning already?

               
                                     SARAH
                         I've got something for you.

               
               Sarah opens up something wrapped in cloth, it appears to be fragments 
               of a tablet.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         How'd you get that?

               
                                     SARAH
                         It was found during an expedition in 
                         the Rocko last month. An associate of 
                         mine sent it to me for analysis. No 
                         one's quite sure what to make of it. 
                         I took the liberty of running a carbon 
                         dating. It's over ten thousand years 
                         old.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         That's impossible.

               
                                     SARAH
                         The lack of writing, and the pyramids 
                         themselves, the inconclusive findings 
                         on several of the artifacts found at 
                         the Henderson dig..
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Are you saying that this proves once 
                         and for all that there existed a language 
                         on Earth that pre-dates all hieroglyphics?
 
                         
               
                                     SARAH
                         I thought you might enjoy the challenge.
 
                         
               
               Daniel slowly runs his hand over the tablet.

               
                                     SARAH
                         Daniel..?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I recognize this.

               
                                     SARAH
                         How could you?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well believe it or not, I believe Latin 
                         is a derivative; we can use it as a 
                         reference point.
 
               
                                     SARAH
                         Daniel, how could you possibly know 
                         that?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I don't know.. I just do.

               
               Daniel is in the canteen, half asleep with his head on the table. 
               Teal'c and Sam sit down at the same table.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         This makes no sense.

               
                                     SAM
                         Maybe you should eat something.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Did I mention that in the dream, the 
                         table was written in Ancient, and that 
                         I could read ancient?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Well's that's not so odd considering 
                         you can do that when you're awake.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Perhaps you are attempting to reveal 
                         something to yourself.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Like..

               
                                     SAM
                         Like something from when you were ascended.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Like you prior vision of Bray'tac and 
                         Ry'ak in danger.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         The tablet sounds a lot like the one 
                         you found when you were on Abydos.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         It could lead to the lost city of the 
                         ancients.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         You think that somehow I know the location 
                         of The Lost City and I don't remember?
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         If you have the dream again, perhaps 
                         you should translate the tablet.
 
               
               Sam nods in agreement, Daniel then nods and lays his head in 
               his arms again.
 
               
               (Dream Sequence.)

               
               Sarah is sitting down at a table with a candle on it, Daniel 
               walks into the room.
 
               
                                     SARAH
                         I thought you might need a break.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Wow, this is really nice. I don't really 
                         deserve you.. do I.
 
               
                                     SARAH
                         No.. hungry?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Actually I can't remember the last time 
                         I ate.
 
               
                                     SARAH
                         How's it going?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I'm so close, I think I found a basic 
                         structure to the whole thing.
 
               
                                     SARAH
                         Really?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, it's about guidance. At first 
                         I thought that was script for some sense 
                         of spiritual guidance but I was wrong 
                         about that. Here.
 
               
               Daniel walks to another table and gets the tablet.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Look, something about a starting point, 
                         a place of origin. Steps of a great 
                         journey leading to..
 
               
                                     SARAH
                         What? Leading to what?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         A city. A place of great power. It's 
                         a map, telling us how to find a city 
                         where an ancient race of humans once 
                         lived.
 
               
               Sam pulls up outside her house in her car. She walks up her steps 
               and finds some flowers along with a note.
 
               
               The note reads, "Dinner at eight, surprise to follow. Dress up." 
               Sam smiles and walks into her house.
 
               
               Back at the SGC, Daniel are Teal'c are in the Weight Lifting 
               room where they are training.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         See I know what the tablet is supposed 
                         to say, I just can't seem to finish 
                         translating it.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Perhaps the location of The Lost City 
                         was not the answer in your mind that 
                         you were searching for after all. Since 
                         I now require sleep, I have developed 
                         an interest in the concept of dreams. 
                         There is much research to study on the 
                         matter.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Okay Sigmund, what are my dreams about?
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Since your friend Sarah was taken as 
                         a host by Osiris, you have been unable 
                         to save her. Perhaps that is the focus 
                         of your sub-conscious desires.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         You think something I knew while I was 
                         ascended could help?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Most often dreams are the minds way 
                         of dealing with desires that cannot 
                         be fulfilled.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         So basically I'm never going to get 
                         another good nights sleep ever again.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         With all of your past experiences Daniel 
                         Jackson, I do not know how you have 
                         slept well before now.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Thank you Teal'c, this session has been 
                         disturbing on many levels.
 
               
               Back at Sam's house, Pete walks up the steps to her door. He 
               knocks on it and Sam answers, Pete has some flowers in his hand.
 
               
               
               Sam is beautiful with a low cut dress, and heels.

               
                                     SAM
                         Up enough?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I.. um.. what?

               
                                     SAM
                         I'll take that as a yes.

               
               She looks at the flowers.

               
                                     SAM
                         Are those for me?

               
                                     PETE
                         Uh'.. yeah. It's the other eleven, the 
                         one I left before makes a dozen.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         I get it. They're beautiful, thank you.
 
                         
               
               The two of them walk towards Pete's car. The scene changes to 
               that of a dance floor where the two of them can be seen walking 
               into. Sam has her eyes closed and he is leading her in.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Now?

               
                                     PETE
                         No.

               
                                     SAM
                         Now?

               
                                     PETE
                         No.

               
                                     SAM
                         Now?

               
                                     PETE
                         No, will you stop?

               
                                     SAM
                         How about now?

               
                                     PETE
                         No.. okay now.

               
               Sam opens her eyes and sees the dance floor; there is a big banner 
               in the background saying "Happy 50th Anniversary Harry and Mary."
 
               
               
                                     PETE
                         Whadda' ya' think?

               
                                     SAM
                         I think we're gonna' get noticed.

               
               Later on in the evening, there are only a few people around. 
               Pete and Sam are still dancing, slowly.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         This is great.

               
                                     PETE
                         It's nice to know that people still 
                         stay together no matter what, isn't 
                         it?
 
               
               (Dream Sequence.)

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I can't do this.

               
                                     SARAH
                         And what's the matter?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I'm just going in circles. I can't find 
                         any references that relate to this passage.
 
                         
               
                                     SARAH
                         Doorway?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         What?

               
                                     SARAH
                         The origin of doorways.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         How do you know that?

               
                                     SARAH
                         It makes sense doesn't it?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, but, how do you know that?

               
                                     SARAH
                         Daniel, it's all there. You just need 
                         to relax.
 
               
               She leans over and kisses him.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Oh no.

               
                                     SARAH
                         What?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         We're supposed to have dinner tonight.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Two months right? I'm so sorry, I totally 
                         forgot. Why didn't you remind me?
 
                         
               
                                     SARAH
                         It's all right.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         It's too late now.

               
                                     SARAH
                         I understand. If it was that important 
                         to me, I would have said something.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         You don't mind.

               
                                     SARAH
                         Of course not.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         You're supposed to leave.

               
                                     SARAH
                         What are you talking about; I'm not 
                         going anywhere. Daniel your research 
                         is gonna change the world. You're a 
                         brilliant mind; I don't want to stand 
                         in the way of that. I want to be part 
                         of it. I am however, going to order 
                         us pizza
 
               
               She kisses him again, and Daniel is looking puzzled.

               
                                     SARAH
                         Get back to work.

               
               Pete and Sam arrive back from their date and are sitting outside 
               in the car.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         So, you wanna come in?

               
                                     PETE
                         I don't know. The inside of your house, 
                         that's a pretty big step.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Suit yourself.

               
               She opens the door of the car and he stops her.

               
                                     PETE
                         I'm just saying that right now, you're 
                         pretty much perfect. What if it turns 
                         out you're really messy or worse. You're 
                         a neat freak weirdo, with labeled drawers 
                         and an alphabetized bookshelf.
 
               
               She smiles at him and gets out of the car.

               
                                     PETE
                         Ok, I'm coming.

               
               They get inside the house and start kissing passionately.

               
                                     PETE
                         Wow!

               
                                     SAM
                         Just don't look at the bookshelves.
 
                         
               
               Later on as daylight comes, they lay in bed and talk.

               
                                     SAM
                         So why did you become a cop?

               
                                     PETE
                         I watched too much TV as a kid. Starsky 
                         and Hutch, Barney Miller.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Barney Miller?

               
                                     PETE
                         It's my favorite show. Those guys never 
                         shot anybody, never beat anybody up.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         That's it?

               
                                     PETE
                         What did you think? Every cop out there 
                         has an inspirational story? It's just 
                         a job Sam.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         I don't think so. Not for you. Anyway 
                         Mark told me you have a story.
 
               
                                     PETE
                         Bastard. Never date your buddyís sister.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         He never told me what it was.

               
                                     PETE
                         It's no big deal. I had a bit of a rough 
                         time when I was growing up. Truth is, 
                         I probably would have ended up in jail 
                         if it werenít for this one particular 
                         cop who took an interest. He really 
                         made a difference in my life and I admired 
                         that.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Itís an honorable job.

               
                                     PETE
                         Well my ex wife didn't think so. Did 
                         you ever see the episode where Barney 
                         comes home and all his stuff is on the 
                         front lawn with the divorce papers stapled 
                         on top?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         No.

               
                                     PETE
                         I didn't blame her. I mean the hours 
                         suck and you never know if....I didn't 
                         have a choice, it's who I am.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         I can understand that.

               
                                     PETE
                         Really. Deep Space Telemetry is who 
                         you are.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         I wish I could tell you more.

               
                                     PETE
                         You don't trust me?

               
                                     SAM

                         Where you going?

                         I'm gonna drive back to Denver today 
                         and file my report.

                         Pete, aside from getting in huge trouble 
                         myself. I could be putting you in danger.
 
                         
               
                                     PETE
                         Oh now you're trying to tell me that 
                         joke about your boyfriends all ending 
                         up dead is true?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Pete.....Please.

               
                                     PETE
                         The problem is, I feel like I've just 
                         scratched the surface with you Sam. 
                         How can we have a future if you won't 
                         share your life with me?
 
               
               He kisses her cheek and leaves. He gets into his car and picks 
               up his mobile phone.

                         do a background check on someone for

                                     DANIEL
                         The only thing I don't have is a gate 
                         address. There are still a few passages 
                         I haven't been able to translate.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Do you think you can?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I don't know. It's like I'm not in control. 
                         Like I'm just along for the ride, watching 
                         the whole thing unfold. The strange 
                         thing is, none of it's right.

                         Please elaborate Daniel Jackson.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I was an idiot. Sarah was in love with 
                         me and I guess I had feelings for her 
                         too, but my obsession with my research 
                         destroyed our relationship. She finally 
                         broke it off with me when I worked through 
                         our anniversary. The Sarah I'm dreaming 
                         about now is like, totally different. 
                         Itís like she cares about my work as 
                         much as I do. Like she wants me to find 
                         the Lost City as much as I do.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Sounds like a normal male fantasy to 
                         me.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Did you not say that Sarah introduced 
                         the tablet to you during one of the 
                         dreams?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Yeah.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         And that you feel that you have no control 
                         of the dreams.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah.

               
                                     SAM
                         Teal'c?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         The Goa'uld possess technology to explore 
                         one's memory.

                         Your suggesting that Osiris is here 
                         on Earth manipulating Doctor Jacksonís 
                         dreams?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         We think it's possible sir.

               
                                     JACK
                         Kinky!

               
                                     DANIEL
                         She's looking for the location of the 
                         Lost City in my subconscious. Iím sure 
                         of it now. She's using the implanted 
                         image of an ancient tablet to help me 
                         figure it out.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Osiris can access Sarah's memories and 
                         use them to gain Daniel Jackson's trust.
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Well how's she doing it?

               
                                     SAM
                         We're speculating that she's sneaking 
                         into Daniel's house at night and using 
                         some sort of modified memory device.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Anubis once probed Thor's mind and in 
                         doing so they would have gained access 
                         to certain Asgard technology.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         That would certainly allow her to come 
                         and go undetected.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Why go to all that trouble? Why not 
                         just snatch up Doctor Jackson and use 
                         a mind probe on him, the way they did 
                         with Thor?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         It's possible Anubis' mind probe won't 
                         work on the subconscious.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         It might have something to do with how 
                         Oma erased my memories when I was ascended.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         This may be the best way to get Daniel 
                         Jackson to unknowingly help them learn 
                         what they wish to know.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         So, what do we do?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         The Goa'uld are scavengers of alien 
                         technology. They would most likely interface 
                         any Asgard system with their own command 
                         device.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         We're hoping the jamming device we've 
                         been working on, could prevent Osiris 
                         from using the beam technology to escape 
                         Daniel's room.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         You want to set up a trap.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yes, but we don't want to spring it 
                         until after she's helped me remember 
                         the location of the Lost City.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         What?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Look, no one wants to save Sarah more 
                         than I do, but I could know. I mean, 
                         it could be there, somewhere in my subconscious. 
                         We have to let her think that she's 
                         still operating without our knowledge. 
                         At least until I have the chance to 
                         try to finish this.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         And how are we supposed to know, when 
                         you know, if it's all happening in your 
                         head while your sleeping?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I don't know?

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Well, you'd better figure it out. We 
                         can't risk letting Osiris escape with 
                         that kind of information.

                         Well there's a lot of backstop ID.

                         Actually it's what didn't turn up that 
                         say's the most. The backstop dead ends.

                                     FERRETTY
                         Yep. Someone went in the system and 
                         wiped out every possible of her and 
                         left only what they want others to see. 
                         Sheís probably connected with some top-level 
                         stuff.
 
               
                                     PETE

                         Black ops, covert units. Things the 
                         government denies all knowledge of, 
                         you know what I'm saying? Look Pete, 
                         if you ask me, this Major Carter's connected. 
                         You might wanna back off from this one 
                         ok buddy? It's way out of your league.
 
                         
               
                                     PETE
                         Hey! It's not like I'm dating her or 
                         anything.

                         Right.

               
               As Pete is sat in his car, he sees Sam come out of her house 
               and get into her car. He follows her.
 
               
               When she gets to the base, she phones him.

                         Hello, this is Pete....

               
                                     SAM
                         Hi, it's me.

               
                                     ANSWERPHONE
                         I'm probably chasing a bad guy. Leave 
                         a message.
 
               
               She puts the phone down.

               
               Jack enters the lab.

               
                                     JACK
                         So what do we got?

               
                                     SAM
                         Daniel's at his house with a team, setting 
                         up video surveillance.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Teal'cs picking out his doughnuts. He 
                         loves a good stakeout.
 
               
               She smiles.

               
                                     SAM
                         The jamming device has been installed 
                         in the surveillance van. It should prevent 
                         Osiris from beaming herself out.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Weíre taking her down with these?

               
               He holds up a dart.

               
                                     SAM
                         She likely has a personal shield, but 
                         we know that a tranquillizer dart will 
                         get through. At that point we hope that 
                         the Tok'ra can safely remove the symbiote 
                         and save Sarah.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         What about this whole Lost City deal?
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         We watch and see. Once in his room, 
                         Osiris won't be able to leave. Itís 
                         just a question of us getting to her 
                         before she realizes that she's been 
                         made.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Back up?

               
                                     SAM
                         Local authorities have been notified, 
                         but we don't wanna do anything to alert 
                         Osiris.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         How's Pete?

               
                                     SAM
                         You know how it is. Usually you don't 
                         let it bother you because you know that 
                         they couldn't cope with the truth anyway.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Usually.

               
                                     SAM
                         I think he could have.

               
               It's nighttime and Jack, Sam and Teal'c are in the surveillance 
               van.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Hey Daniel. Daniel! You sleeping yet?
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yes Jack, I'm fast asleep.

               
               Sam and Teal'c smile, while Jack looks embarrassed. Pete's car 
               is across the road from the van. Heís looking at it through binoculars. 
               Teal'c gets his donuts and offers them.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         What have you got there?.......No, I'll 
                         pass.
 
               
               Teal'c doesn't look too happy that his donuts are unwanted. On 
               one of the monitors, Jack sees Osiris beam in.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Here we go.

               
                                     SAM
                         Activating frequency jamming.

               
                                     JACK
                         Let's do it.

               
               Jack and Teal'c go into the house, leaving Sam in the van. Pete 
               is watching both the van and the house. It's now daylight.
 
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Carter.

               
                                     SAM
                         She's still there sir.

               
                                     JACK
                         How long do we wait?

               
                                     SAM
                         I don't know. Daniel must be getting 
                         close.
 
               
               (Dream Sequence)

               
               Daniel is looking at the tablet and is frustrated. Sarah comes 
               up behind him and puts her arms around him.
 
               
                                     SARAH
                         Progress?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Not really. I'm still convinced these 
                         symbols represent the location of the 
                         Lost City.
 
               
                                     SARAH
                         Like an address?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah. There's seven of them. They don't 
                         translate into anything specific.
 
                         
               
                                     SARAH
                         You're so close.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         No I am not!

               
                                     SARAH
                         Don't say that Daniel.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         They mean nothing to me.

               
                                     SARAH
                         You've worked too hard to give up now.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I don't know. I never knew.

               
               Daniel wakes up suddenly to see Osiris stood over him.

               
                                     OSIRIS
                         How unfortunate for you.

               
               She uses the Hand Device on him.

               
                                     SAM
                         Move in, move in.

               
               Jack tries to shoot her but is flung back. She tries to beam 
               out, but is unable to and so makes her way through the house 
               to the outside. As Sam jumps out of the van, Pete comes up to 
               her.
 
               
                                     PETE
                         Sam.

               
                                     SAM
                         Pete I....

               
               Osiris starts firing at them.

               
                                     SAM
                         Get down!

               
               Sam uses her zat, but it can't get through the shield. Meanwhile 
               inside the house, Daniel pulls off the memory device and is in 
               pain.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Will you be all right?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, go, go, go go.

               
               Outside and Sam and Pete are firing at Osiris.

               
                                     SAM
                         It's no use Pete!

               
                                     PETE
                         Yeah, why is that?

               
               Pete sees Osiris' eyes glow.

               
                                     PETE
                         Now that is not normal.

               
               Sam sees that Osiris is aiming at the van and shouts to Pete 
               to run.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Go!

               
               The van blows up. Suddenly Osiris is hit from behind with a dart 
               and collapses.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Clear!

               
               Sam and Pete get up.

               
                                     SAM
                         Are you ok?

               
                                     PETE
                         I'm ok. Are you ok?

               
                                     SAM
                         Yeah.

               
                                     PETE
                         Well that's good.

               
               He falls slowly to the ground again and Sam notices that he's 
               been injured.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Oh god, Pete, you've been hit.

               
                                     JACK
                         Carter!

               
                                     SAM

                                     SAM

                         I will explain everything.
 
               
                                     PETE

               SGC Infirmary. Sarah wakes up and Daniel is by her side.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         It's all right, you're safe.

               
                                     SARAH
                         Daniel?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         It's all right. I'm here. It's all over. 
                         Youíre free.
 
               
               She puts her arms around him and he holds her.

               
                                     SARAH
                         I'm so sorry.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         It's not your fault.

               
                                     SARAH
                         I couldn't stop it.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I'll get you through this.

               
               Meanwhile, Pete is also in the infirmary. Sam comes to visit 
               him.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Hey, they treating you ok?

               
                                     PETE
                         Yeah. Who would have thought there's 
                         a hospital under Cheyenne Mountain.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         One of the best anywhere.

               
                                     PETE
                         This place is unbelievable.

               
                                     SAM
                         You've no idea.

               
               She hands him a present, it's a picture of them dancing.

               
                                     PETE
                         Thanks.

               
               She kisses him.

               
                                     PETE
                         I believe I lived up to my end of the 
                         bargain.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         What I'm about to tell you is classified 
                         under section 11C9 of the National Security 
                         Act.
 
               
                                     PETE
                         Chicks with laser beam rings and glowing 
                         eyes are classified under 11C9.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Just let me talk will ya?

               
                                     PETE
                         Ok.

               
                                     SAM
                         You're currently in a top secret military 
                         facility known as Stargate Command. 
                         In 1928 in Giza, Egypt, Archaeologists 
                         uncovered an ancient device, capable 
                         of instantaneous transportation to other 
                         planets by means of a subspace wormhole.
 
                         
               
                                     PETE
                         I knew it. This is way better than a 
                         box of wine with a duck on the front.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         I'm not kidding.

               
                                     PETE
                         It's all right. Other planets, wormholes. 
                         Continue.
 
               
               Sam smiles at him and the scene fades.

               
               THE END
