"FOREVER IN A DAY"
We open to a battlefield as SG-1 and several other SG units appear.
There are several dead jaffas lying on the ground. There is a
fenced in area with several people being held prisoner. Jack
approaches the fence, placing a charge on the gate. The rest
of SG-1 is standing guard.
He opens the gate; it's Abydonians that are being held. One is
Sha're's father Kasuf.
Let's go folks..... come on.
(running up to Daniel) Good Son....you
Yes Good Father, we got your message.
She took the boy. They took him.
The son of my daughter. She took the
Come on Daniel, we gotta go (as he runs
You said she took him.
There (pointing, he sees a tent with
Amaunet/Sha're standing there.)
Keep your people together. Go with the
people of the Tauri. (he runs toward
(seeing more jaffa) Fall back.....Fall
(seeing Daniel run toward the tent)
(stopping a short distance from the
A jaffa comes out of the tent and Daniel shoots him several times,
Teal'c (motioning for him to follow
The Abydonians are running away as more soldiers with heavy artillery
move in to fight the jaffa. Another jaffa comes out of the tent
firing his staff weapon at Daniel, hitting the ground close to
him, knocking him down. Teal'c fires his staff weapon killing
the jaffa. Amaunet/Sha're turns walking into the tent. The rest
of SG-1 and the soldiers are under heavy fire from three jaffas
on a hill with a more powerful staff weapon. Sam picks up a grenade
launcher and fires it at the jaffa, killing them. Daniel changes
the clip in his gun as he's getting up, running toward the tent.
Several jaffas come over the hill. The soldiers, along with the
rest of SG-1 are under heavy fire; soldiers are dying all around
them. The soldier on a heavy artillery gun is killed. Jack takes
his place, firing continuously at the jaffa. Daniel enters the
tent, seeing Amaunet/Sha're standing there alone.
Don't move (Amaunet/Sha're just looks
at him) Where's the boy?
(eyes glowing and in the goa'uld voice)
Where you and the system lords will
never find him. (Raising her hand with
a ribbon device on)
Don't! (pointing his gun at her.) Don't
She activates the ribbon device. He falls to his knees in pain;
his gun slipping from his hand.
No Sha're...fight it.
My host can not help you.
Teal'c turns from the battle and runs toward the tent
(in slow motion) Sha're
Teal'c enters the tent seeing Daniel on his knees, in the grips
of the ribbon device. The gun is slipping out of his hand. Teal'c
activates his staff weapon, looking at Daniel as the gun slips
from his fingers.
Daniels point of view...He's in the infirmary...Dr. Frasier is looking
in his eyes with her pinlight. His vision is blurry, but clearing.
There is a red mark on his forehead from the ribbon device. The
rest of SG- 1 is standing around the bed.
You don't remember?
I'm not sure.
We were on P8X-873. We were freeing
the Abydonians whom the goa'uld had
taken as slaves.
Kasuf sent for us.
Sha're was there.
She's dead Daniel. Sorry.
It was I who am responsible (walking
up to the bed) I was forced to fire
upon and termanate the life of Sha're.
However...I assure you it was done only
to save your life.
No. They have a sarcophugus. Her guards
put her in the sarcophagus. She's still
out there somewhere. Alive. (Everyone
looks uncomfortable) What?
Dr., can he be taken out of the infirmary?
We'll have to keep his drip in, but
I'll arrange for a wheelchair.
I'll take him, Sir.
I will accompany you also.
Jack is wheeling Daniel down a corridor, Teal'c following close
behind him. Kasuf comes around the corner. Daniel looks up and
My son. It's a sad day for us all.
No. I know this will be difficult for
you to understand, Kasuf, but the demon
inside your daughter will help her rise
It this true?
Not this time...I'm sorry.
They all continue down the corridor, entering a room. There are
several covered bodies in the room. Jack pushes Daniel up to
one, locking the brakes on the chair. A medical assistant walks
over. Jack motions with his head to uncover the body. As the
sheet is being pulled down, we see a close-up of Sha're's face
from the side with Daniel looking at her. Blinking several times.
Why didn't you leave her there? They
would have saved her.
There was no they left.
We were victorious, Daniel Jackson.
There was no one remaining to take Sha're
to a sarcophagus. We brought Kasuf to
prepare her body according to Abydonian
Daniel stands up next to the body looking down at her.
The good news is we managed to save
most of the Abydonians.
And for that we are eternally grateful
Jack nods his head at Kasuf
(looking at Teal'c) You should have
waited longer. (looking back at Sha're)
I would have gotten through to her.
She was trying to kill you, Daniel.
No she wasn't trying to kill me. Amaunet
was trying to kill me.
I have seen many humans killed by goa'uld
ribbon devices. You would have been
dead in mere seconds had I not acted.
Teal'c did the right thing, Daniel.
I am sorry Sha're is dead. However,
you are my friend. If I had to do it
again, I would do the same.
Teal'c leaves the room. Daniel sits down in the wheelchair. Jack
motions with his head for the assistant to cover the body.
Close-up of an ink pen. Sam enters the room. Daniel is back in
his bed; head of the bed raised about 45 degrees. He's holding
the ink pen.
Sam walks over to the bed
I brought you some of those chocolate-walnut
cookies you love so much.
Thank you. Have you ever really studied
one of these?
Putting the cookies on the over-bed table, sitting on the side
of the bed.
I spent half my life studying the history
of the written word, including how various
cultures recorded things through the
ages. From hammers and chisels to quills
and ink. But I never stopped once to
recognize the inginuity of this simple
little peace of technology that we use.
After the first team left me on Abydos,
Sha're saw me writing in my journal
and thought the ballpoint I was using
was magic. A little device like this
pen was such a wonder to her. The simplest
thing was a wonder to her.
Daniel, It's healthy to hold onto those
I couldn't save her. (teary) All those
wonders we have at our disposal and
I couldn't save her. (putting the pen
down) I'm just going to get some sleep
if you don't mind.
Okay (getting up as Daniel slides down
in bed a little.) Um....let me know if
you need anything. Okay.
Thank you. (starring at the ceiling)
Okay (looking like she's about to cry,
turns and leaves the room.)
Close-up of Daniels face as he closes his eyes. Amaunet/Sha're
has Daniel in the grips of the ribbon device again.
Hear me Daniel
There's a flash of light. Daniel's view...as he's waking up, blurry
at first. Sha're is sitting next to the bed holding his hand.
She's wearing fatigues.
Daniel, you're awake. (looking up) He's
(looking in his eyes with the penlight)
Hey, how do you feel?
(looking at Sha're) Confused.
I bet. Can you tell me your name?
And what's your birthday?
July 8th. Sha're.
As are most of our people. Thanks be
to you. Thanks be to all of you. (The
rest of SG-1 is standing around the
I found you in the clutches of Amonet's
ribbon device. I had no recourse but
to fire upon her.
Then we took her straight to the Tok'ra.
They had a captured sarcophagus and
a way to remove the goa'uld.
Then I was dreaming before...
Sha're/Amaunet leans in close to Daniel, caressing his face.
umm....maybe we should. (motioning for
everyone to leave)
(clearing her throat) Glad to see you're
He's going to be ok?
Oh...it looks that way, Sir.
Everyone leaves the room. Leaving Daniel and Sha're alone.
There's so many things I want to tell
you. I don't know where to begin.
Daniel, I only came to tell you about
What about him?
Sha're/Amaunet is pulled into a vortex before she can answer.
Daniel's view as he wakes up, vision blurry, but clearing. Dr.
Frasier is talking to a nurse. She notices that he's awake and
walks up to the bed.
Daniel, Are you ok?
No. Is Sha're here?
No. Do...do you mean...we..we haven't taken
her body back to Abydos. Is that what
you mean? (Daniel looks so lost...)
View outside Cheyenne Mountain Complex, then inside. Daniel is
walking to Gen. Hammond's office; Gen Hammond is sitting at his
desk going over some folders. Daniel knocks on his open door.
He's holding a folder.
Come in. (looking up) Dr. Jackson. It's
good to see you back on your feet.
Yes, uh..Dr. Frasier just released me.
Is there something I can help you with
Yes, Sir. I've come to tender my resignation.(placing
an envelope on the desk)
I won't accept it.
I'm not military, sir, and it's a free
country. Last I checked anyway.
You're obviously in an emotional state
right now. You're making rash decisions.
Why don't you take some personal time?
Then see how you feel.
That's not necessary, sir. I joined
this program so that I could find my
wife. I found her. End of story.
Daniel is packing some artifacts in his office. Some soldiers
are taking some boxes away. Jack walks in.
Hey! You should meet the whiz kid they
saddled us with while you are out of
Robert Rothman. He was my research assistant
when I was doing my dissertation. Smart
guy. He had a good teacher. (Packing
Geek. (playing with an artifact, swinging
it like a golf club)
Yes, you used to call me that.
I was talking about you. (putting the
Daniel stops packing for a second.
So...how long are we going to be stuck
with this guy?
What do you mean?
How long are you gonna be gone?
Didn't Gen. Hammond tell you?
What? That you quit? Yeah, he told me
that, but, uh, come on. We both know
you can't stay away.
Then I guess we're both wrong, cause
Give it a week. You'll miss me.
Yes, all the salty, bad-tempered insults,
all the illogical arguments.
Ok, you'll miss Carter and Teal'c.
I'll miss Carter.
And you'll miss the excitement. All
the new cultures you get to explore,
the living history. That's the kind
of stuff you can't walk away from.
Jack, Up until now everytime I set foot
through that gate I was thinking about
my wife. Maybe I'll see her this time.
Maybe this is the one. Now everytime
I go through....it..it will be just some
place where that hope used to be. That's
why I can't do it anymore. (tearing
up) I hope you understand that.
The SGC may be the single most important
human endeavor for the future of mankind.
Not bad huh? You said that.
The SGC will go on without me.
Daniel is walking down the corridor carrying a box. He approaches
the elevator. Teal'c is standing in his way.
Please get out of my way Teal'c
I will, but you must hear me first.
I have a pretty good idea what you want
Is there not some form of human ritual
in which I may ask your forgiveness?
The elevator doors open, a soldier gets off and Daniel gets on
pushing the button. The doors close leaving Teal'c standing there.
Outside view of Daniel's apt. Inside view, a couple of soldiers
along with Jack and Sam are bringing boxes into the apt. Daniel
looks up as one of the soldier's sets a box down.
Jack walks up with a box.
Daniel notices Jack and Sam looking surprised.
So.... (looking back and forth between
Sam and Daniel) Now what?
Now I get on with my life.
What are you going to do?
Well, hopefully I'm going somewhere
far away. To the most remote dig I can
Are we going to see you again?
At the funeral.
Sam nods her head, Jack just looks at him
Now...if you'll excuse me. I seem to have
a lot to do.
Ok....(Sam walks around the table and
hugs Daniel. Daniel returns the hug.
Jack is waiting his turn. Sam releases
Daniel. Daniel looks at Jack. Jack shakes
hands with Daniel.)
Well...it's been a pleasure doing business
with you. (pulling Daniel into a quick
hug) Dr. Jackson.
They both leave.
Daniel's in bed asleep. There's a bright light on his face and
he opens his eyes, squinting. Then Amaunet/Sha're is there with
Daniel in the grips of her ribbon device again.
Hear me Daniel
Daniel opens his eyes. He is in his bed, it's dark. He turns
on the light. He's lying on his left side facing the edge of
the bed. Sha're rises up behind him.
Are you ill my husband?
(surprised, Daniel rolls over on his
back seeing her) Apparently
Go back to sleep. Tomorrow you will
rise and return to your travels through
No, I won't. I don't need to anymore.
I already found you.
You must continue....so you can find the
Where is he?
To continue your travels, you must first
forgive Teal'c. He did what is right.
When he killed you?
But you're here.
Yes, now go back to sleep. (caressing
his face) shhhh.... (kissing his forehead)
shhh.... Daniel rolls over on his side,
closing his eyes. It's dark again....he
opens his eyes rolling over. He's alone
On Abydos, there is a SGC guard standing on the hill. Sha're
is wrapped in white cloth, lying on a reed bed in an open grave.
Kasuf and Daniel are standing at the head of the grave. Daniel
is wearing Abydonian robes with sunglasses on. He's holding a
white feather. General Hammond, Jack (also wearing sunglasses),
Sam and Dr. Frasier, all wearing dress blues are standing on
the left side of the grave. Abydonians are standing on the right
side. Kasuf begins speaking in Abydonian, raising his arms then
bringing them down crossing on his chest. He nods to Daniel.
Daniel removes his sunglasses and kneels down in front of a small
table with a baboon figure with scales on it.
I speak for Sha're who can no longer
speak for herself. (Repeats in Abydonian)
I have spoken no lies nor acted with
deceit. (Repeats in Abydonian) I was
once possessed by a demon who did these
things against my will. (Repeats in
Abydonian) The demon is gone and now
I am without sin. (Repeats in Abydonian)
Grant me a place in your blessed dwelling.
(Places a white feather on one of the
scales) If my heart weighs more than
a feather my soul still contains sin.
If not, may my soul join the gods.(Kasuf
and the Abydonians raise their hands
to the sky. Daniel stands up.) By the
trial of the great scales, thy heart
is light. Thy soul has been found true.
There are tarps on each side of the grave covered with dirt from
the grave. The SGC and the Abydonians standing on each side of
the grave pick up the tarp allowing the dirt to fall in the grave,
covering the body. Daniel turns to leave. Kasuf grabs his arm.
It was a beautiful ceremony, Good Father.
It was. My heart is still burdened.
Why? Your daughter is with the god.
Yes, but you still have not heard her.
I don't understand?
What she has to say is important ...to
all of our future...Go to her.
Pointing toward a tent. Daniel looks that way, then back to Kasuf.
Kasuf motions for him to go. Daniel walks toward the tent.
Sha're/Amaunet walks up behind him, wearing Abydonian robes.
Daniel (He turns around quickly, surprised
to see her.) You must forgive Teal'c.
Yes, you already told me that.
And together you must find the boy.
Why? (Kasuf walks up behind him)
For he is Harcesis. The one who holds
The boy is the son of two goa'uld hosts.
He contains all the secrets of the goa'uld.
You must find him.
Sha're/Amaunet is sucked into a vortex before she can answer
him. Amaunet/Sha're is there with Daniel in the grips of her
ribbon device again.
Hear me Daniel.
Daniel wakes up in his bed. Looking around his bedroom, confused.
He picks up the phone and dials a number.
This is Dr. Daniel Jackson; I need to
speak to Major Carter.
In the gate room, the iris is opening to an active wormhole.
Gen. Hammond, a soldier and Daniel are standing at the foot of
the ramp. Jack, Sam, Teal'c and Robert Rothman step out of the
wormhole. Sam smiles, walking up to Daniel.
Well, ol doc Jackson. What are you doing
I need to talk to Sam...alone.
General, I need to (looking back at
Robert then back to the General.) talk
to you...alone. They walk off.
How are they treating you Robert? (Shaking
hands with him)
Oh, uh well. I...I think they'd rather
have you. Especially Colonel O'Neill.
Well...Don't let Jack get to you. He's...he's
just intimidated by you. Because you...uh...you're
way smarter than he is. Robert chuckles....
(then walks out)
It is good to see you well Daniel Jackson.
Teal'c...you did the right thing.
Teal'c nods his head then walks out.
So, what's up?
How well do you understand the goa'uld
hand device? How it works?
Well..uh..the best I can tell it uses
a modified version of the power source
for the staff weapon which it channels
through amplification crystals that....
No (putting his finger to his lips)
I meant, it works by thought control,
um...yeah, that's one way to put it. More
like a thought control amplified by
Ok, so there is a connection with the
So it's possible to send a thought ..through
it if you had someone in one of those
grips... like Sha're had me in?
As far as I know, Daniel, it's designed
Okay, but it could do both.
Yeah..I suppose it could. Why?
I'm not sure. I know this may sound
like wishful thinking, but I think Sha're
was trying to send a message to me through
the hand device. (starting to walk off)
I'm not sure.
View outside Daniels apt. Inside..Daniel enters the apt. Walking
into his livingroon he see's Jack and Kasuf sitting there.
Hi...How'd you get in here?
You left the base before we could catch
you, we thought we would stop by and
see you here.
How'd you get in here?
Got sick of waiting in the hall, so
I let us in. You...need a new lock... by
Good Son. It is important I speak with
What is it, Good Father?
Col. O'Neill tells me you are leaving
his tribe, that you no longer intend
to go through the chaapa'ai. Is this
Well, this disturbs me greatly. It gives
the people of Abydos great security
knowing that you are out there among
the gods. Protecting us.
I'm sorry, Good Father. I joined the
SGC in the hopes of finding Sha're.
That goal is no longer obtainable. So
I can not travel among the gods anymore.
I hope you can understand that.
But, Daniel, my daughter wishes you
to travel among the gods.
Yes...so that you can find the boy.
Forgive me Good Father, how do you know
Sha're told me. Come, ask her yourself.
Kasuf walks over to a closed door, motioning for Daniel to open
it. Daniel looks over at Jack, then walks over to the door. He
opens it and he's back on P8X-873. The tent is there and there
is dead jaffa everywhere. He turns back to the door and it's
gone. He turns back to the tent as Amaunet/Sha're walks out of
Amaunet/Sha're motions for him to follow her and she goes back
inside. Daniel enters the tent. Close-up on his face as a bright
light shines on his face. Amaunet/Sha're has him in the grip
of the ribbon device again.
Come to me Daniel.
Daniel wakes up in his bed, it's dark. Turning over and looking
around, confused. He gets out of bed and leaves the room.
View outside Cheyenne Mountain Complex, then in Teal'c's room.
There are several lit candles all over the place. Teal'c is sitting
on the floor with his eyes closed. Daniel enters the room.
Am I interrupting?
It is good to see you Daniel Jackson.
(closes the door and sits on the floor.)
Teal'c, what happens if two goa'uld
hosts have a child?
It is strickly forbidden and punishable
If two hosts were to mate and produce
a child, that child would contain all
the knowledge of the goa'uld.
So the genetic memory that goa'uld have
in their DNA is passed on to the human
That is correct. Such children are called
Harcesis. These children are hunted
down and destroyed by the goa'uld with
So the offspring, the harcesis, would
contain all the knowledge, all the secrets
of the goa'uld that...
Yes, Daniel (Daniel gets up to leave.)
Daniel Jackson, It pleases me greatly
that once again you value my knowledge.(Daniel
looks back at Teal'c, and then walks
out, closing the door behind him.)
View of General Hammond's office. Jack is there.
General, the guys got two left feet.
I'm telling you he slows down the unit.
(walks up to the open door) Deja-Vu.
(leaning against the doorframe)
(seeing Daniel) Deja-Vu
Deja-Vu. You know Rothman was a two-time
decathlon champion in college.
Two left feet, huh?
Trying to get Robert out of your unit?
Any chance of that happening, sir?
Only chance would be if you reconsider.
Good, so Rothman is gone...what?
Are you kidding?
No, I've given it some thought and I've
decided I'd like to come back.
May I ask what changed your mind? You
were fairly adamant.
I don't know, lets just say that there's
something through the stargate that
I think I still have to be the one to
Now see, I miss that. I have no idea
what he means, but I buy it. What do
you say General?
Haven't put through his resignation
papers yet. Jack: Good, so he's in.
In the gate room...Sam, Teal'c and Robert are waiting to go off
world. Robert's putting eye drops in his eyes. Jack enters the
So...Bruce Jenner. Sit this one out, huh?
You've been reassigned to another unit.
Okay, you're being replaced.
Because I'm intimidated by your intelligence.
Where's the confusion here?
Daniel enters the room, geared up ready to go off world.
Robert smiles and walks over to Daniel giving him the GDO, turning
he salutes Jack then walks out.
Daniel Jackson, you're rejoining SG-1.
(mouths to Daniel)...Thank You.
The gate starts spinning. The all emerge on another planet.
Carter, grab your samples. Teal'c, stay
with her. I'm going to check out that
tree line. Daniel, the UAV didn't show
any.... big signs of civilization, human,
goa'uld or otherwise so..
So you want me to look for little signs
of civilization, itsy- bitsy artifacts
(patting him on the shoulder) It's good
to have you back.
Daniel turns to look at the stargate. Then we see the stargate
activate and Daniel jumps though.
(turns, running toward the stargate.)
Sam runs to the DHD.
Where'd he go?
The address cleared before I got here.
Daniel is back on P8X-873. The tent is there along with all the
dead jaffa. He enters the tent. There's a dark spot on the floor.
(coming up behind Daniel) You are finally
(turning around) Yes.
You are the only one who can save the

so that Heru'ur would not know her true
To take the boy.
She has sent him into hiding with her
The vortex tries to take her, but she comes back.
I know a Kheb. There...there's a reference
in Budge. It's the mythical place where
Osiris hid from Set. Kheb's a myth.
Where is it?
Promise me you will save the child.
I promise. (they kiss)
Amaunet/Sha're has Daniel in the grips of the ribbon device.
He drops the gun. Teal'c fires his staff weapon hitting Amaunet/Sha're
in the chest. She falls, her eyes glow for a second then fades
out. Daniel falls and seeing her, scoots over to her.
I love you Daniel. (she dies)
I am sorry Daniel Jackson (kneeling
down beside Daniel)
You did the right thing, Teal'c.
Jack and Sam enter the tent guns held ready for action. Teal'c
turns toward them, staff weapon ready. He relaxes when he see's
it's them. Daniel touches Sha're's face. Sam and Jack see them
on the floor.
Daniel Jackson will be fine.
I love you too. (to the dead Sha're)
