                                      STARGATE SG1

                                      Episode 202

                                 "IN THE LINE OF DUTY"

                                           By

                                    Robert C. Cooper




               SG1 are offworld, in the middle of a battle. People are injured 
               and running around screaming. The team are trying to help
 
               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Let's go Captain, those gliders are 
                         coming back around!
 
               
                                     SAM
                         This man's alive!

               
                                     JACK
                         We cannot wait!

               
               
               
               Daniel is helping people through the stargate

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Okay, come on, come on. Don't panic, 
                         we'll have you out of here in a minute.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Teal'c! I gotta go back for Carter.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         He's alive, but I think he's gonna wish 
                         he wasn't. Let's get him outta here.
 
                         
               
               
               
               Carter is doing mouth to mouth on a man. He suddenly grabs her 
               around the back of the neck, so that she can't break free. When 
               she eventually does, her eyes glow for a moment.
 
               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Carter! We've got to go! You alright?
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Yeah.

               
                                     JACK
                         Let's get him outta here, come on.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Dead! Had some kind of seizure. Bit 
                         his own tongue.

                                     HAMMOND
                         I want a full medical quarantine until 
                         these people can be examined. Colonel 
                         O'Neill and the rest?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Right behind me, and a dozen Jaffa right 
                         behind them.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Lock it up

               
                                     JACK
                         Carter? You okay?

               
                                     SAM
                         Yeah, I'm fine. Thanks.

               
               
               
               Briefing Room

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         There hadn't been any Goa'uld interference 
                         on this planet for over three centuries. 
                         The Nasyians are... are... were a peaceful 
                         people. They were eager to form an alliance 
                         and aid us in setting up a research 
                         outpost. There was no warning this attack 
                         was coming. We hadn't even spotted the 
                         mothership by the time the Gliders assaulted 
                         the village.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         It's not normal for the Goa'ulds to 
                         suddenly just show up and wipe out peaceful 
                         people for no apparent reason, is it?
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         In the past there was usually some reason, 
                         most often they seem to attack civilisations 
                         that are advancing to a point where 
                         their technology could be a threat, 
                         but that wasn't the case here.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Maybe they found out we were there.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well how could they know? Or more importantly, 
                         why did this particular Goa'uld care?
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         They might have been a little concerned 
                         because we just kicked the crap out 
                         of Apophis.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, the truth is we still understand 
                         very little about their society.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I have seen the Goa'uld wipe out entire 
                         civilisations for no reason, simply 
                         because it gave them pleasure.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         So what, Nasyia was just next on the 
                         list? Part of me wishes it was that 
                         simple, but I don't want to underestimate 
                         them.
 
               
               Sam Maybe the reasons just weren't made apparent to you, Teal'c. 
               I mean, you are just a Jaffa. All I meant was that Apophis wouldn't 
               necessarily have explained everything to Teal'c even if he was 
               first prime. Would he?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         That is true.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I agree with Sam. I think we have to 
                         assume the Goa'uld are more complex 
                         as a society than we're giving them 
                         credit for.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         The better you understand the enemy 
                         the better prepared you are in conflict.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Exactly.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         What's the status of the Nasyian survivors?
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, we managed to recuse 237 people. 
                         The critically burned and some of the 
                         overflow our infirmary couldn't handle 
                         were transferred to the Air Force Academy 
                         hospital. The rest are awaiting relocation.
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Proceed.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Sir, I think it's important to try and 
                         find the reason why Nasyia became a 
                         Goa'uld target.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Agreed! But relocation is the first 
                         priority. I'm assigning the three new 
                         SG teams 10 through 12 to co-ordinate 
                         with you. Dismissed.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Oh, Carter, I hate to be a nag about 
                         this but old Doc Fraiser says you haven't 
                         been checked out yet?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         I'll go right now. Wouldn't want to 
                         break post-mission protocol, right Colonel?
 
                         
               
               
               
               Infirmary

               
               Janet is checking Sam out. Finally, she asks her to open her 
               mouth, so that she can look in her throat
 
               
               
               
               
               
                                     JANET
                         Sorry to have to do this. Right, open. 
                         You had a sore throat lately?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         A little, why?

               
                                     JANET
                         There's a small abrasion back there. 
                         I have to do a swab. And open. Cassandra's 
                         been asking about you.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Cassandra, yeah, I've been so busy lately.
 
                         
               
                                     JANET
                         She understands. Okay! You just let 
                         me know if it gets worse.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         I'm free to go out tomorrow, though, 
                         right? We're searching for possible 
                         relocation sites for the Nasyians.
 
                         
               
                                     JANET
                         Sure! Cassandra's gonna be at the hospital 
                         with me tomorrow, so why don't you stop 
                         by and spend a little time with her 
                         first, you know, if you can.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         I will.

               
                                     JANET
                         Good.

               
               
               
               Hospital

               
               Janet is speaking into a dictaphone

               
               
               
                                     JANET
                         Patient has third degree burns to over 
                         80% of his body. So far no signs of 
                         infection. Incredible.
 
               
               
               
               Sam enters the room

               
               
               
                                     JANET
                         Hey.

               
                                     SAM
                         Is this one of the Nasyians we saved?
 
                         
               
                                     JANET
                         Yeah, he should be dead. Cassandra is 
                         in my office, now I still have rounds 
                         to make, but you know where it is?
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Right.

               
               
               
               Sam looks at the man and leaves the room

               
               
               
               Sam goes to Janets office to see Cassie

               
               
               
                                     SAM
                         Hey there.

               
                                     CASSIE
                         Sam!

               
               Sam Wow, nice painting.

               
                                     CASSIE
                         You really like it? My teacher at school 
                         says I have talent.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         I love it.

               
                                     CASSIE
                         I missed you.

               
                                     SAM
                         I know, I've sorry, I've been so busy.
 
                         
               
                                     CASSIE
                         Very busy.

               
               
               
               Cassie hugs her, until she suddenly realises something is wrong
 
               
               
               
               
                                     SAM
                         Cassandra, what is it?

               
               
               
               Sam's eyes glow

               
               
               
               Back at the SGC

               
               
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         It would be earier on the Nasyians if 
                         there were already an active civilisation 
                         willing to co-operate.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         I'll bet you the folks on P3X-422 would 
                         be willing.
 
               
                                     TECH
                         Colonel O'Neill, there's an urgent call 
                         for you, Sir.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Check.

               
               
               
               Janet and Jack walk down a hallway at the hospital

               
               
               
                                     JANET
                         Thanks for coming so quickly.

               
                                     JACK
                         What's going on with her?

               
                                     JANET
                         I'm not sure, she won't talk to me. 
                         She said she'd see you and only you. 
                         Cassandra, it's just me honey, I've 
                         got Colonel O'Neill with me.
 
               
               
               
               Cassie let's them in. When they enter, she is sitting against 
               the wall, hugging her knees
 
               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Hey. Janet says you've been a little 
                         upset since Sam was here. What happened?
 
                         
               
                                     CASSIE
                         She said she'd kill me if I told.

               
                                     JACK
                         Well, you don't mean kill you kill you.
 
                         
               
               Cassandra nods.

               
                                     JACK
                         No, I doubt that.

               
                                     CASSSANDRA
                         She said she would.

               
                                     JACK
                         Cass, Sam loves you, she'd never do 
                         anything to hurt you.
 
               
                                     CASSSANDRA
                         She would now.

               
                                     JACK
                         Why?

               
                                     CASSSANDRA
                         She's a Goa'uld.

               
               
               
               Sam runs into Daniel and Teal'c in the hallway

               
               
               
                                     SAM
                         Where's the Colonel? We're due to get 
                         out of here in five minutes!
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well he left us a message, said he'd 
                         meet us in the Gate Room.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Well step on it then!

               
                                     DANIEL
                         What was that?

               
               
               
               Gateroom

               
               
               
                                     SAM
                         Where's Colonel O'Neill?

               
               
               
               Jack enters the room

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Stand down campers, we're on a hold.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Why?

               
                                     JACK
                         I dunno, some computer glitch.

               
               
               
               He injects Sam with something

               
               
               
                                     SAM
                         What the hell was that?

               
               
               
               
               
               Janet is watching from the control room

               
               
               
                                     JANET
                         That was enough to take down an elephant!
 
                         
               
               
               
               Back in the gateroom. Sam is talking in the voice of a Goa'uld
 
               
               
               
               
                                     JOLINAR
                         Open the Stargate!

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Jack, what the hell is going on?

               
                                     JOLINAR
                         Open the gate now! I command you!

               
                                     JOLINAR
                         Open the gate now or we will all die!
 
                         
               
               
               
               She has a grenade in her hand

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Hold your fire!Teal'c!

               
                                     AIRMAN
                         I have a shot, sir.

               
                                     JACK
                         And if she drops that grenade, what? 
                         Nobody's gonna open that Stargate. We're 
                         all gonna live, or we're all gonna die, 
                         right here.
 
               
                                     JOLINAR
                         Let me go! I must go!

               
                                     JACK
                         Not gonna happen.

               
               
               
               Sam falls to the ground. Jack rushes to grab the grenade and 
               put's the pin back in
 
               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Take it easy.

               
               
               
               Briefing Room

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         I didn't know. I wasn't sure until I 
                         saw her lose it down there. Cassie was 
                         the one who suspected.
 
               
                                     JANET
                         Cassandra still has traces of naqahdah 
                         in her blood. I think there may be some 
                         connection, a reaction that made her 
                         sense the Goa'uld.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         How in the world did it get into Captain 
                         Carter?
 
               
                                     JANET
                         Sir, I don't know what to say. I examined 
                         Captain Carter myself, there were no 
                         visible signs of entry. I mean, she 
                         had a small abrasion on the back of 
                         her throat, but it could have been anything!
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Are you saying it entered through her 
                         mouth?
 
               
                                     JANET
                         The parasite's goal is to attach itself 
                         to the brain stem. The soft tissue at 
                         the back of the throat is as good a 
                         place as any to start.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Oh, wait a minute, wait a minute. Oh 
                         my God, she was giving some guy on that 
                         planet mouth to mouth. There was blood 
                         but she said the guy just bit his tongue 
                         before he died.
 
               
                                     JANET
                         If a Goa'uld can infest a human with 
                         no detectable physical signs, then we're 
                         gonna have to start giving all personnel 
                         who go through the 'gate an ultrasound 
                         or an MRI.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Well for now let's make sure we haven't 
                         let any more Goa'ulds through the 'gate 
                         this time.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         What would a Goa'uld be doing in a Nasyian 
                         man in the first place? I mean, we certainly 
                         didn't notice any of them acting Goa'uldish.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Maybe it was a set-up, trying to get 
                         a spy into one of us.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         It is possible the Goa'uld within Captain 
                         Carter has already placed a device of 
                         destuction on this base.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         If there's any tampering here, I want 
                         it found. Teal'c, I'd like you to help. 
                         You know better than anyone what to 
                         look for.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Oh, what are we going to do about Sam?
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         We're gonna get that damn thing out 
                         of her is what we're gonna do!
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well that didn't really work with Kawalsky. 
                         And if any of those NID guys like Colonel 
                         Maybourne find out about this, then...
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Well they're not going to! Right, General?
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Agreed. I'm not giving up on Captain 
                         Carter either. But until someone presents 
                         me with a viable option, I'm putting 
                         you in charge of interrogating the prisoner.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Due respect Sir, I don't think that 
                         thing in her head's going to tell me 
                         anything.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Colonel, we need to know what that Goa'uld's 
                         doing here.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Yes sir.

               
               
               
               Dr Jacobs goes into the bandaged mans room

               
               
               
                                     DOCTOR JACOBS
                         Sorry to bother you. Just a quick test 
                         here. Okay now, we're gonna have to 
                         get rid of some of those bandages.
 
                         
               
               
               
               The man attacks the Doctor

               
               
               
               Daniel walks into a Nasyian womans hospital room

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Oh, excuse me.

               
                                     TALIA
                         Your world is an amazing place.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         It can be. I'm Daniel.

               
                                     TALIA
                         You are one of the men responsible for 
                         saving us.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah.

               
                                     TALIA
                         We owe you great thanks.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Can we talk a minute?

               
               
               
               Teal'c goes into the locker room

               
               
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Colonel O'Neill.

               
                                     JACK
                         Thought you were helping with the sweep 
                         of the base?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I am on my way. This is difficult.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah. Yeah, it is.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Assault the Goa'uld's ego. Make him 
                         appear foolish. He may then reveal the 
                         things you wish to learn simply to make 
                         himself appear more powerful.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Come on Teal'c. They're smarter than 
                         that.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I have seen many Goa'uld strategies 
                         revealed and certain victories lost 
                         because of Goa'uld arrogance. It is 
                         the Goa'uld's greatest weakness.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Colonel O'Neill. When you speak to her, 
                         do not see your friend.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         How do you do that?

               
               
               
               Jack goes to see Jolinar

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         So, you and I have got to have a little 
                         talk. You really screwed up here you 
                         know. I mean, you really blew it.
 
                         
               
                                     JOLINAR
                         You are weak.

               
                                     JACK
                         Who's behind bars right now?

               
                                     JOLINAR
                         Your tactics will not work on me.

               
                                     JACK
                         Not buying it, huh?

               
                                     JOLINAR
                         You must let me go.

               
                                     JACK
                         Ah, no.

               
                                     JOLINAR
                         You really have no idea why this is 
                         happening.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         And I guess you don't feel like telling 
                         me.
 
               
               
               
               Daniel is talking to Talia

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         This is a picture of the man the Goa'uld 
                         came from.
 
               
                                     TALIA
                         It's my husband.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         One of the other Nasyians recognised 
                         him, and we found this in our video 
                         archive.
 
               
                                     TALIA
                         Then something was inside of him?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I know how difficult this is for you. 
                         I lost my wife to the Goa'uld.
 
               
                                     TALIA
                         I'm sorry.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         It's important that you tell me if you 
                         noticed anything different about your 
                         husband lately. I mean, anything, an 
                         injury, uh, new scars, maybe a...
 
                         
               
                                     TALIA
                         Wait, here. But it was months ago.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Months ago? You never noticed anything 
                         since then? I mean, he wasn't acting 
                         strange? I mean was it violent, I mean 
                         his eyes didn't glow? I'm sorry.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Why don't I let you rest?

               
               Daniel leaves the room. We see the man in bandages is now standing 
               up. The Doctor is on the floor. The man removes the bandages 
               and takes a device from his mouth. He put's it on his hand.
 
               
               
               
               
               Back with Jack and Jolinar

               
               
               
                                     JOLINAR
                         Let me go. Let me go through the Stargate. 
                         I will find another host and send your 
                         friend back to you.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         You can do that? Leave a host without 
                         killing them?
 
               
                                     JOLINAR
                         Yes. It is possible, but not easy. I 
                         could die, but I promise I will try.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         The Nasyian man died when you left him.
 
                         
               
                                     JOLINAR
                         The Nasyian man died first, that is 
                         why I left him. He was beyond my natural 
                         abilities to heal.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         What were you doing in him in the first 
                         place?
 
               
                                     JOLINAR
                         Carter's mind would be intact. She would 
                         return to you as you knew her before.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         You know I can't trust you.

               
                                     JOLINAR
                         I could have killed you and many others 
                         when you stopped me from going through 
                         the Stargate.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         You didn't want to die yourself.

               
                                     JOLINAR
                         It would not have killed me. I am too 
                         valuable.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Which is exactly why we'll never let 
                         you go.
 
               
                                     JOLINAR
                         I have done nothing to harm you. But 
                         you would not let me go even if you 
                         did believe me.
 
               
               
               
               Jack begins to leave the room. Sam seems to be speaking

               
               
               
                                     SAMEDIC 2
                         Oh God, he's telling you the truth! 
                         Please, Jack, no Jack, please, don't 
                         leave me, please, give me a chance! 
                         Don't leave me like this! Please!
 
                         
               
               
               
               He leaves

               
               
               
                                     JOLINAR
                         What will it take?

               
               
               
               Later, Teal enters the cell

               
               
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         You have requested my presence?

               
                                     JOLINAR
                         Jaffa, you must convince the humans 
                         to let me go.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         They will not let you go.

               
                                     JOLINAR
                         They are impressive. The Tau'ri have 
                         become very powerful in the time since 
                         the Goa'uld reign here. Certainly the 
                         System Lords will not allow this to 
                         go unchecked. I can provide the humans 
                         with information that can help them 
                         defend against attack.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         They are more powerful than you know. 
                         Already a Goa'uld attack on Earth has 
                         been thwarted.
 
               
                                     JOLINAR
                         Then a more powerful assault is already 
                         being planned.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         They are not fools. They believe you 
                         are here to plant a seed of that destruction.
 
                         
               
                                     JOLINAR
                         Not all Goa'uld are the same. There 
                         are a few that oppose the System Lords 
                         and their ways. You must have heard 
                         of the Tok'ra.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Every Goa'uld seeks power for his own 
                         reason and would betray his own brother 
                         to achieve it.
 
               
                                     JOLINAR
                         Some seek power for a greater purpose. 
                         Not every Goa'uld is an enemy to the 
                         people of this planet. The Tok'ra are 
                         real, no matter what Apophis has told 
                         you.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I have yet to meet one.

               
                                     JOLINAR
                         You have now. I am Jolinar of Malkshur.
 
                         
               
               
               
               Daniel walks in on the man we now know is the Ashrak

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Oh, er, excuse me, I just wanted to 
                         check on Talia. How is she?
 
               
                                     ASHRAK
                         She's good.

               
               
               
               Janet speaks to a nurse

               
               
               
                                     JANET
                         Peter, have you seen Doctor Jacobs recently?
 
                         
               
                                     PETER
                         Uh-uh.

               
                                     JANET
                         What about the most recent bloodwork 
                         done on the patient in 412?
 
               
                                     PETER
                         Here it is.

               
                                     JANET
                         Good, thanks.

               
               
               
               Janet removes the bandages from the patient

               
               
               
                                     JANET
                         Doctor Jacobs!

               
               
               
               Teal'c and Jack are on their way to see Jolinar

               
               
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         There is an old legend among the Jaffa 
                         for them to speak of concerning a group 
                         of Goa'uld who opposed the ways of the 
                         System Lords. This group is called the 
                         Tok'ra. This Goa'uld, Jolinar of Malkshur, 
                         claims to be part of that group.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Can you be sure he is who he says he 
                         is?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I cannot.

               
                                     JOLINAR
                         Unfortunately we do not carry identification.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Okay, lets try to build a little trust 
                         here, shall we? One of the Nasyians 
                         we brought back was very badly burned. 
                         But somehow he just got up out of his 
                         hospital bed and disappeared. Who is 
                         he?
 
               
                                     JOLINAR
                         It must be the Ashrak.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         It means hunter.

               
                                     JACK
                         A Goa'uld?

               
                                     JOLINAR
                         Yes. An assassin of the highest rank 
                         who carries out the orders of the System 
                         Lords.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Who's he here to kill?

               
                                     JOLINAR
                         Me.

               
               
               
               Briefing Room

               
               
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         The missing Nasyian is an Ashrak. A 
                         Goa'uld assassin sent by the System 
                         Lords to eliminate Jolinar.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         That's the name of the Goa'uld in Sam.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         It is. Jolinar once tried to overthrow 
                         one of the System Lords but was defeated 
                         when Apophis joined the battle. He escaped 
                         during the slaughter of his armies.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         It seems this Jolinar is wanted in Goa'uld 
                         town.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         He claims to be part of the Tok'ra.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Resistance.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         The Tok'ra is a small alliance of Goa'uld 
                         who oppose the System Lords. It was 
                         my teacher Bra'tac who first spoke to 
                         me of them.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Well, this Goa'uld inside Carter could 
                         be lying, spinning a tale to gain our 
                         trust.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         It's quite a spin.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         The sweep of the base has turned up 
                         no evidence. There's been no tampering 
                         with the base computer. We can't find 
                         a single sign of sabotage.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well that's why Jolinar didn't reveal 
                         himself to be a Goa'uld! He was actually 
                         hiding out in the Nasyian man.

                         Until he was hunted down by the Ashrak. 
                         When he realised we may have helped 
                         him escape through the Stargate.

                         He improvised. So where are we?

               
                                     JACK
                         Bottom line sir? We may have a Goa'uld 
                         out there who's on a mission to kill 
                         Carter.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         And we don't even know what he looks 
                         like.

                                     ASHRAK
                         Excuse me.

               
                                     AIRMAN
                         Yeah Doc, what's up?

               
                                     ASHRAK
                         Are you sending these people home?
 
                         
               
                                     AIRMAN
                         Yeah, you could say that.

                         Daniel Jackson.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yes.

               
                                     JOLINAR
                         You care about Samantha Carter as much 
                         as O'Neill and Teal'c.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yes I do.

               
                                     JOLINAR
                         Yet this is the first time you have 
                         come to see me.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I came to see if you could give us a 
                         description of the Ashrak.
 
               
                                     JOLINAR
                         I will know his face only in the moments 
                         before he tortures me to death, killing 
                         your friend along with me.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well there's no way he's getting in 
                         here.
 
               
                                     JOLINAR
                         You are not stupid, Daniel, nor am I.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         He doesn't even know for sure you're 
                         on this planet, let alone in this base.
 
                         
               
                                     JOLINAR
                         He is Goa'uld, he will find me. It's 
                         what he does. Letting me go, trusting 
                         me, is the only chance of saving your 
                         friend Samantha.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Then I'm sorry, I'm sorry Sam.

               
                                     JOLINAR
                         Alive I can be a powerful ally, dead 
                         I am useless to you.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Then you're gonna have to give us more 
                         than empty promises.
 
               
                                     JOLINAR
                         I can give her back to you.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         We can't let you go.

               
                                     JOLINAR
                         I'm not talking about Samantha, Daniel, 
                         I'm talking about Sha're. I know where 
                         she is.

                                     AIRMAN
                         You're not John.

                         Daniel, it's a ploy. He's playing on 
                         your greatest weakness.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well that may be so, but this many be 
                         the only chance we have to see Sam again.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I believe Jolinar speaks the truth.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Look, he told me about this resistance. 
                         Now, they have a totally different way 
                         of life from the Goa'uld we know. They 
                         don't believe in taking hosts against 
                         their will.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Right, like Carter and this Nasyian 
                         guy?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         No, he had no choice. He wants to leave 
                         Carter.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         But if they don't believe in taking 
                         hosts, how do they survive?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         They take humans who are about to die. 
                         Who choose to continue to live and co-exist 
                         with the Goa'uld. Now according to Jolinar 
                         this can be a rewarding relationship.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Daniel, I'm sorry, I know what this 
                         means to you. But I will never, never 
                         trust a Goa'uld.

                         dishonour by the power of the Hara'kash.
 
                         
               
                                     JOLINAR
                         Hear this. The days of the Goa'uld System 
                         Lords are numbered. Tell them that I 
                         died with hope. My death only feeds 
                         the fire that burns strong in the Tokr'a.
 
                         
               
               
               
               He uses the device, which causes her great pain. Soldiers rush 
               in after she falls to the ground, apparently dead. The think 
               he is just another airman

                         Colonel, the prisoner and two guards, 
                         dead.

                         Three, two, one, good. Whoa, where's

                         absorbing it. She's the same old Samantha
