                                      STARGATE SG1

                                      Episode 304

                                        "LEGACY"

                                           By

                                 Tor Alexander Valenza




                A DARKENED CORRIDOR

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Daniel? Any ideas about this place?
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well it looks like it was built by a 
                         pretty advanced culture, then stripped 
                         and deserted.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         The MALP showed no life signs.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Teal'c? What do you think?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         It is an ancient Goa'uld design.

               
               Teal'c goes to touch a panel and a door opens.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Now that is not a good smell.

               
               Daniel walks in and brushes by something.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Jesus!

               
               It's a corpse.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         All right. Level A.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         There is another one here.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         More over there.

               
               Sam sees a scar on the neck of one of the corpses.

               
                                     CARTER
                         These aren't quite human. They're Goa'uld.
 
                         
               
               OPENING CREDITS

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         This mechanism appears to have been 
                         damaged by a ribbon device.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Maybe they were trying to contain whatever 
                         did this.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Teal'c, do you recognise this symbol?
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         It is the crest of the Linvris.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Which is what? Or who/

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         A rival league of lesser Goa'uld who 
                         challenge the System Lords.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         A minor league?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Yes. There are nine.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Five, six, seven, eight, nine. Found 
                         'em.
 
               
               Meanwhile, Daniel has picked up a tablet.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         It's one of those Goa'uld tablet devices, 
                         the kind we found on Argos.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Can you translate it?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Part of it. It's some sort of battle 
                         plan. I need the hand device that makes 
                         the screen go to the next page.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         That thing?

               
               Daniel bends down and picks up the Page Turning Device (PTD). 
               He waves it over the tablet and it doesn't change.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Nothing's happening.

               
               He suddenly looks round.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         What?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I felt something brush by me.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         All right, let's pack it outta here. 
                         Leave this to the medical containment 
                         unit. It's getting creepy.
 
               
               They leave.

               
               SG-1's locker room

               
               Daniel walks out of the shower towelling his hair.

               
                                     WOMAN
                         Dr. Jackson? (Whispers)

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Out in minute!

               
                                     WOMAN
                         Dr. Jackson! (Whispers)

               
               Daniel looks up and around at the sink which is dripping. He 
               puts his hand under and catches the drips.

               Sam is walking along.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Daniel.

               
               Daniel is walking out of the locker room.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Were you calling me just now?

               
                                     CARTER
                         No.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         You weren't calling my name in the locker 
                         room a minute ago?
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         No, it wasn't me. General Hammond's 
                         waiting for us in the briefing room.

                                     FRAISER
                         The Goa'uld died before their hosts. 
                         We know this due to a unique protein 
                         marker left in Goa'uld bodies or host 
                         bodies after a Goa'uld dies.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         The same protein marker that was left 
                         in my body after Jolinar was killed?
 
                         
               
                                     FRAISER
                         Yes.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         How did they die, Doctor?

               
                                     FRAISER
                         Well at this point Sir, I can't really 
                         give you an accurate answer and I may 
                         never be able to.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Why not?

               
                                     FRAISER
                         As with Major Carter, as these Goa'uld 
                         symbiotes died they rapidly decayed 
                         and were absorbed by the host. There's 
                         no Goa'uld corpse for me to study.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         What about bio warfare? Poison, disease, 
                         that kind of thing?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         The Goa'uld are immune to such things.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         What about the hosts?

               
                                     FRAISER
                         The humans were normal. No wounds, no 
                         infections.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Okay then, why are they dead?

               
                                     FRAISER
                         According to Teal'c, the door was disabled 
                         from the inside. Locked in with no food, 
                         no water, the probably died of starvation.
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Right now, I'm more concerned with who 
                         killed the Goa'uld and why.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         The System Lords would be the most likely 
                         suspect.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         But if the door was disabled from the 
                         inside, how did the perp, or perps, 
                         get out?
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Maybe the assassins weren't visible 
                         and we're the ones who let them out.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Reetou. You think Reetou were in there?
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Reetou would not spare the host. Reetou 
                         weaponry does much damage to the human 
                         body.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Well there you go.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Dr. Jackson, what about that Goa'uld 
                         tablet device?
 
               
               The Stargate is beginning to rotate in the background.

                                     DANIEL
                         Um.. It's a Goa'uld dialect akin to 
                         Latin. From what Teal'c and I have made 
                         out so far, it's some sort of attack 
                         plan. Um.. I'm still trying to figure

                         if there is a next page.

                         Dr. Jackson, I want you to make translating 
                         that tablet your top priority.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yes Sir.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Dismissed.

               
               Teal'c, Sam and Janet leave. Daniel gets up as the Gate engages 
               and walks to the window overlooking the Gate. Jack follows him.
 
               
               
                                     PA
                         SG7 returning.

               
               Daniel looks down and SG7 appear to be the dead members of the 
               Linvris. One of them looks up at him and Daniel immediately turns 
               to Jack to see if he sees anything out of the ordinary. He doesn't. 
               Daniel looks back and the members of SG7 look normal again.
 
               
               
               Daniel's Lab

               
               Daniel picks up some pills and swallows them with a glass of 
               water. He is writing something down and mumbles in Goa'uld dialect.
 
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         To enter by infiltration. Infiltration.
 
                         
               
                                     MAN
                         Daniel. (whispers)

               
               Daniel looks up.

               
                                     MAN
                         Daniel! Daniel!

               
               The sounds of chevrons locking can be heard. Daniel looks towards 
               his cupboard. He gets up and opens his closet. There appears 
               to be a wormhole event horizon there.
 
               
                                     MAN
                         Join with us, Daniel. Step through the 
                         Gate, Daniel.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         This isn't real.

               
               He lifts his hand to touch the event horizon and a hand suddenly 
               comes back out of the event horizon and grabs him by the shirt.
 
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Help! Somebody help!

               
               A face then appears. It's one of the dead Linvris. Daniel is 
               then pulled through the event horizon.
 
               
               Infirmary

               
               Daniel opens his eyes to see Jack playing with a bag of solution.
 
               
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Hello.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Hello.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         What happened?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Do you believe in ghosts?

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Uhh.. No. Uh huh.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Neither do I. Which means there has 
                         to be a logical explanation.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         For what?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         When we were in the Linvris chamber, 
                         I felt something brush by me. And I've 
                         heard voices. And I keep seeing the 
                         dead Goa'uld from the massacre.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Where?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, last night they were in my closet. 
                         In like a.. Stargate event horizon without 
                         the Gate.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         In your closet?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yes. I don't think they're really dead.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Who? The stiffs in the morgue?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         No, the nine Goa'uld that were using 
                         them as hosts. I translated a phrase 
                         in the tablet that I thought meant 'attack' 
                         but when I refined the translation, 
                         I realised it means 'to enter by infiltration'.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         And you think that's what they're doing?
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yes.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Through your closet?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Teal'c said the Linvris were being hunted 
                         by the System Lords, right? No what 
                         if they used some sort of technology 
                         that transformed their bodies into. 
                         I don't know, energy or something.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Energy?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Or something. I don't know exactly how- 
                         Sam can figure that part out. The point 
                         is, they're here. They've entered by 
                         infiltration and now they want me as 
                         a host.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         All nine of 'em?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         That sounds crazy, huh?

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Mmm.. Yeah. I. You gotta admit, there 
                         are some holes in you theory here.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well it's a theory, not a proof.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Why are you the only one who can see 
                         them? Why didn't they come through my 
                         closet? Aside from the fact that yours 
                         is cleaner.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I don't know. The only other theory 
                         I can come up with is I'm having some 
                         sort of nervous breakdown.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Or something. Yeah.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Or something.

               
               Briefing room

               
               Jack walks in and stops.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Doctor MacKenzie.

               
                                     MACKENZIE
                         Colonel.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         I'm not going to enjoy this am I?

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Part of Dr. MacKenzie's work involves 
                         analysing psychological data from SG 
                         units specifically looking for side 
                         effects to Gate travel. Dr. Jackson's 
                         episode yesterday may have uncovered 
                         a serious one.
 
               
                                     MACKENZIE
                         Dr. Fraiser's been treating you for 
                         headaches lately, hasn't she?
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Yes. What's that got to do with Daniel?
 
                         
               
                                     MACKENZIE
                         Well you're not the only one.53% of 
                         SG field personnel also have a history 
                         of them.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         A lot of people get headaches. What's 
                         your point?
 
               
                                     MACKENZIE
                         Dr. Jackson has experienced what I'd 
                         characterise as a first break psychotic 
                         episode, which may be manifesting full 
                         blown hebephrenic schizophrenia.
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         Migraines are often one of the first 
                         signs.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Wait a minute. Daniel's a schizophrenic 
                         and it's caused by the Stargate?
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         It's the only logical explanation we 
                         have right now, Colonel.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Well it sounds fairly theoretical to 
                         me. Does anybody think it could be stress?
 
                         
               
                                     FRAISER
                         As much as I'd like to think that's 
                         all it is, the evidence just doesn't 
                         point that way. Daniel has paranoid 
                         delusions, auditory and visual hallucinations.
 
                         
               
                                     MACKENZIE
                         Dr. Jackson's dopamine levels have increased 
                         in the left hemisphere of his brain. 
                         All these symptoms are textbook schizophrenia.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         I don't understand how this could happen 
                         without us noticing signs.
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         Nobody knows the exact cause of schizophrenia. 
                         Some cases are genetic, but there's 
                         no history of it in Daniel's family. 
                         When it's not genetic, it's environmental 
                         and the Stargate is a plausible environmental 
                         cause.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         I've been through the Gate as many times 
                         as Daniel. I don't have headaches.

                         Your body may have some kind of immunity, 
                         possibly due to Jolinar.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         All right. Let's say for the sake of 
                         argument that it is the Stargate, a 
                         theory to which I do not ascribe. Then 
                         why don't we put a little sign at the 
                         base of the ramp that says "Gate travel 
                         may be hazardous to your health"? I 
                         can live with that.

                         The Air Force can't. I can't risk any 
                         SG officer having delusions in the middle 
                         of a crisis. Therefore, as we speak, 
                         all outstanding SG teams are being recalled 
                         for evaluation.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         You're shutting down the whole programme?
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Only until Dr. MacKenzie and his team 
                         submit their report. If his theory is 
                         proven correct limits will be placed 
                         on the number of missions. Till then 
                         the Stargate is closed.

                                     HAMMOND
                         There is no debate, Colonel.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Of course not. (To Carter)

               
                                     CARTER
                         What about Daniel, Sir?

               
                                     MACKENZIE
                         For now, we're going to medicate him 
                         and let him rest in one of the VIP rooms.
 
                         
               
                                     FRAISER
                         But if his symptoms persist, or if he 
                         becomes a threat to himself or anyone 
                         else we'll have to commit him to Mental 
                         Health.
 
               
               Sam and Jack look at each other.

               
               VIP Room

               
               Daniel and Jack are playing chess.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Check.

               
               Jack moves his piece.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Oh.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         What? Didn't see that?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Actually, I was oh-ing about something 
                         else.
 
               
               He moves a piece.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Checkmate. I should have done that two 
                         moves ago. I don't know what I was thinking.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Yeah, well. You're a little off.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I don't feel off. I feel. I feel fine. 
                         No headaches, no tension, I mean, I 
                         feel normal.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         That's because it was just stress. And 
                         I have a very calming effect on stressed 
                         out people. How about a game of gin?
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I'm not very good at gin.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Good! Get the cards.

               
               Daniel gets up to go to the cupboard and hears the sound of chevrons 
               locking. He looks back at Jack to see if he hears it too but 
               Jack is putting the chess pieces away. Just as the noise sounds 
               as if the Stargate would engage, Daniel opens the cupboard and 
               it's normal. He gets the cards and sits down again. Suddenly 
               he hears screeching and looks up. As Jack is shuffling the cards, 
               a fully grown Goa'uld symbiote is crawling up his arm.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Jack?

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Yeah? What?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         It's nothing.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         You all right?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I'm fine. How are you feeling?

               
               The Goa'uld suddenly crawls up to Jack's neck and enters the 
               back of it. Jack's eyes glow and he is seemingly unaware of this.
 
               
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Good. Real good.

               
               Daniel jumps up and runs to the back of Jack.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         There's a Goa'uld in you! I've got to 
                         get it out!
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Get. There's no Goa'uld in me!

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I'm sorry. I saw it. I saw it.

               
               Daniel starts to sway.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         You all right? Come on.

               
               Daniel sinks to the floor.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         All right, easy, easy, easy. Put your 
                         head down.
 
               
               Jack rings for some help while we focus on Daniel. As he lies 
               on the floor, something moves under his skin.
 
               
               Air Force Hospital

               
               Jack, Sam and Teal'c follow MacKenzie down a corridor. They get 
               to a room and MacKenzie opens the door.
 
               
                                     MACKENZIE
                         Don't expect too much. If he becomes 
                         agitated, call the aides.
 
               
               We see SG-1 from Daniel's point of view and it's blurred.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Jack?

               
                                     CARTER
                         It's us, Daniel. Can't you see us?
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I was just making sure you weren't figments 
                         of my mind. They took away my glasses 
                         in case I broke the lenses and, uh, 
                         tried to, uh, hurt myself.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Are they treating you okay?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah.

               
               Daniel starts to cry.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I'm sorry.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         For what?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         For being such a headcase.

               
                                     CARTER
                         It's not your fault Daniel.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Colonel O'Neill believes it has something 
                         to do with the Linvris.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         You remember in that chamber you said 
                         you felt something brush by you?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yes. It was them. I know you don't believe 
                         me but I felt them. They heard me.
 
                         
               
               Daniel hears footsteps and darts off to a corner of the padded 
               room.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         They're coming. They're coming.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Only your friends are here, Daniel Jackson.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         They're coming. I hear footsteps. Footsteps.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Daniel, there are no footsteps. Stay 
                         with us.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Footsteps!

               
               From DanielCam, a dead member of the Linvris pops up behind Teal'c.
 
               
               
               Daniel starts laughing and points.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I told you. That's one of them. He's 
                         right there.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         There is no one at my side, Daniel Jackson.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yes, there is.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Wanna get the aides?

               
               Sam nods and she knocks on the door. Daniel suddenly jumps up 
               and runs at what he thinks is a member of the Linvris. Teal'c 
               grabs him and restrains him. Daniel suddenly sees a little blue 
               jelly thing go from him into Teal'c hand. He pulls away as the 
               aides come in.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Something just went inside Teal'c.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         You're hallucinating Daniel.

               
               The aides come in and hold Daniel down.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well don't just stand there! Get it 
                         out of him!
 
               
                                     MACHELLO
                         You have delivered me to the vile Goa'uld 
                         so that I may destroy him.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Machello!

               
                                     MACKENZIE
                         Okay, let's raise the dose. 5mls at 
                         four hour intervals.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Machello.

               
               SGC

               
               Jack, Sam and Teal'c walk out of an elevator. Jack and Sam are 
               ahead of Teal 'c.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         God, I hate seeing him like that.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Nothing worse than losing your mind 
                         and knowing it's happening.
 
               
               Teal'c suddenly collapses behind them. Sam grabs his arm and 
               Jack grabs the other one and looks at the Airman on security 
               detail.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Infirmary.

               
               The Airman goes to his phone and Sam and Jack take Teal'c to 
               the infirmary.
 
               
               Daniel's padded room.

               
               Daniel is lying on the floor dreaming.

               
               Flashback to Holiday when SG1 met Machello.

               
                                     MACHELLO
                         Yes, inventions to fight the Goa'uld!
 
                         
               
               Flashback to the aides injecting Daniel.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Machello.

               
                                     MACHELLO
                         Yes!

               
               Flashback to Holiday.

               
                                     MACHELLO
                         Yes. Inventions to fight the Goa'uld!
 
                         
               
               Flashback to one of the jelly things entering Teal'c.

               
               Daniel wakes up and gets up to bang on the door.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Dr MacKenzie! Dr MacKenzie!

               
               SGC Infirmary

               
               Teal'c is in an isolation tent. Janet comes out.

               
                                     FRAISER
                         Teal'c symbiote is dying. I can't explain 
                         why.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Teal'c, what about that kel'no'reem 
                         thing?
 
               
               Teal'c shakes his head weakly.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Is he having hallucinations like Dr 
                         Jackson?
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         No. His dopamine levels are normal. 
                         Besides, Daniel didn't have the same 
                         physical symptoms. They seem to be unrelated.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         What are we talking about, timewise?
 
                         
               
                                     FRAISER
                         Without another symbiote, a day, two. 
                         Maybe less. Even if we found another 
                         larval Goa'uld in time, there's no telling 
                         if it would survive either.
 
               
               Daniel's padded room.

               
               Dr MacKenzie and some aides come in.

               
                                     MACKENZIE
                         Dr Jackson?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Stop. One second.

               
                                     MACKENZIE
                         Look, Daniel, it's time for your meds.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I don't, uh, I don't need any more drugs. 
                         What I need is the ones you got in my 
                         system, out of my system.
 
               
                                     MACKENZIE
                         No, Daniel. You need rest.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I think I've rested enough. Just tell 
                         me one thing. Is Teal'c sick?
 
               
                                     MACKENZIE
                         Not that I'm aware of. I haven't been 
                         to the SGC.
 
               
               Daniel bangs his head against the wall.

               
                                     MACKENZIE
                         Dr Jackson, I insist you calm yourself. 
                         Otherwise I'll have to have you restrained 
                         and further sedated.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Why are you so quick to jump to the 
                         conclusion I'm crazy? That I'm dangerous, 
                         I'm out of control? It's cos I'm kinda 
                         acting that way, aren't I? I just need 
                         to get these drugs out of my system. 
                         Look, Doctor. I know you probably hear 
                         this from patients all the time but 
                         I think I'm cured.
 
               
                                     MACKENZIE
                         You're right, I hear that all the time. 
                         I'm afraid it doesn't work that way. 
                         You don't get well from something like 
                         this overnight.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         You do if there was an alien organism 
                         inside you that was making you think 
                         that you were sick when you really weren't.
 
                         
               
                                     MACKENZIE
                         Mm-hm. And you, uh, found this out how?
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Machello told me.

               
                                     MACKENZIE
                         Machello?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         He's an alien old man we met on P3C 
                         599.
 
               
                                     MACKENZIE
                         Dr Jackson, you haven't had any visitors.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         No, of course I haven't. You see, Machello 
                         is dead.
 
               
                                     MACKENZIE
                         Dead? Yet he told you there was someone 
                         inside you making you appear crazy?
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         That's a good point. I wouldn't, uh, 
                         I wouldn't buy that if I were you either. 
                         Just do me one favour okay? Contact 
                         the SGC. Find out if Teal'c is sick. 
                         If he is, promise me you'll let me talk 
                         to Jack O'Neill.
 
               
               Infirmary

               
               Sam and Jack are sat on a chair and bed while Janet is with Teal'c.
 
               
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Dr MacKenzie seems to think there's 
                         some sort of change with Dr Jackson.
 
                         
               
                                     FRAISER
                         A change, sir?

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         He's requesting that you come out there, 
                         Colonel.
 
               
               Jack leaves.

               
               Daniel's padded room.

               
               The door opens and Jack walks in. Daniel gets up from the floor.
 
               
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Hey Daniel.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         You don't, uh, you don't need to walk 
                         on eggshells any more. I'm better.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         So I hear. Uh, it's not that I doubt 
                         you, but, um, why do you think it happened 
                         all of a sudden?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I don't completely understand it myself, 
                         but I saw something come out of me and 
                         go into Teal'c. And then I heard Machello's 
                         voice.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Uh, Machello?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Just hear me out. I'm guessing it wasn't 
                         actually Machello. It was probably some 
                         sort of technological or organic recording. 
                         It said something about delivering Machello 
                         to the vile Goa'uld, which made me start 
                         thinking. Maybe I had some sort of Goa'uld 
                         killing invention inside of me. One 
                         of Machello's inventions.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         And that's what made you nuts?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well since I don't have a Goa'uld, a 
                         side effect off this invention must 
                         make normal people act like they're..
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Nuts. (whispers)

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Schizophrenic. Look. Teal'c is sick 
                         right.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Right.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well he does have a Goa'uld.

               
               Infirmary

               
               Daniel looks at Teal'c. He's back in SGC fatigues and wearing 
               his glasses.
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         Your dopamine levels are back to normal.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I'm back to normal.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Okay, let's say your concept about Machello's 
                         Goa'uld killing invention is right. 
                         Why did it take so long to go into Teal'c?
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I don't know. Maybe it needed a close 
                         proximity to sense his Goa'uld larva. 
                         Look, I had a lot of time locked in 
                         that little room to think about this. 
                         It makes sense. Why am I back to normal? 
                         And coincidentally, hours after touching 
                         me, Teal'c is sick.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Why didn't I get sick when we were playing 
                         cards the other night and you were jumping 
                         all over me?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Because last I heard you don't have 
                         a Goa'uld larva.
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         All right, but Daniel look, we ran every 
                         test we have. MRI, CAT scan, X-rays, 
                         full blood work up. There is nothing 
                         foreign in Teal'c or his symbiote.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         It's there. I know it! I saw it.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Daniel, those bodies had only been there 
                         a month. Machello's been dead for six 
                         months. How could he be responsible?
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         What if he planted those killing devices 
                         there six months ago? Or a year ago? 
                         Then the Linvris walk into their meeting.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Like a land mine?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yes!

               
               Sam gets up and goes to the computer.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         World War I mines are still going off 
                         in France today, even though the soldiers 
                         that planted them are long since dead.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         You think that Machello made this thing 
                         right?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Right.

               
                                     CARTER
                         We crated off everything in Machello's 
                         laboratory to Area 51 and it's all in 
                         our database. Let's see if we can find 
                         something that looks familiar.
 
               
               Sam flicks through the items on the screen and Jack points at 
               one of them.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Right there. Right there. Back it up.
 
                         
               
               It's the tablets.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I picked that up in the Linvris chamber.
 
                         
               
                                     FRAISER
                         Why did he make so many page turning 
                         devices?
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         It could be our landmine.

               
               Lab with Observation room overlooking.

               
               Daniel is in the room overlooking and Sam, Janet and Jack are 
               in the lab.
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         On the right is the PTD from the Linvris 
                         and the one on the left is from Area 
                         51.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         They look exactly like the one we found 
                         on Argos. The Linvris probably thought 
                         it was one of their own.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         It's a good way to hide a mine.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Yeah. Question is, how do we set it 
                         off?
 
               
               Sam taps one with some tongs.

               
                                     FRAISER
                         No. Okay. Um, let's see what happens 
                         when we use it on the tablet.
 
               
               Sam picks it up and waves it over the tablet. 10 little jelly 
               things come out.
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         There they are. I'm counting five, ten 
                         altogether. So if all PTD's are the 
                         same, we're looking at ten per device.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         That explains how I got infected. There 
                         were nine Linvris.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         And when you activated the device, the 
                         last one went into you.
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         Let's try and immobilise one and put 
                         it under the scope.
 
               
               She tries to grab one but they go through the protective gloves 
               they are both wearing.
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         The gloves are breached!

               
                                     CARTER
                         Whoa!

               
               One gets out of the container.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Whoa! Who-whoa!

               
                                     DANIEL
                         General Hammond, B Haz Mat Observation 
                         right away!
 
               
               Three of the devices go into Jack. Janet tries to stop them going 
               into her but can't. Sam is the same.
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         No!

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Great.

               
               Hammond comes into the overlooking room where Daniel is sitting.
 
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         We have a breach.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Is there any chance of further contamination 
                         to the base?
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         Judging what happened to Daniel Sir, 
                         as long as we stay in here and don't 
                         go near anyone else, the base is probably 
                         secure.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Dr Warner to B Haz Mat Three Observation 
                         stat. Containment team to B Haz Mat 
                         Three for containment integrity scan.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         There has to be an answer in this tablet.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Is there anything we can do from in 
                         here?
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         Nothing Colonel. All the specimens are 
                         inside us. Since we're infected by multiple 
                         organisms we can expect our symptoms 
                         to be rapidly acute.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         I'd like to apologise in advance for 
                         anything I may say or do that could 
                         be construed as offensive as I slowly 
                         go NUTS!
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         Likewise Colonel.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Colonel? Janet?

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Carter?

               
               From Jack's point of view Sam's eyes glow and her voice is distorted.
 
               
               
                                     CARTER
                         Sir, there's nothing wrong with me.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Sam, you've got four of those things 
                         in you.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         I know that, but I feel fine.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         You're not seeing or hearing any of 
                         this stuff.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         No Sir, I feel completely normal. Somehow 
                         I must be immune.
 
               
               Dr Warner arrives.

               
                                     WARNER
                         Dr Fraiser, what can I do to help?
 
                         
               
                                     FRAISER
                         Not much I'm afraid.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Doctor, there's nothing wrong with me. 
                         Sir, I'd like Dr Warner to take some 
                         tests, try to figure out why.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         I'm afraid that's not possible. That 
                         would risk another person being contaminated, 
                         if not the entire base.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Sir, those organisms left my body, I 
                         might be immune. I may be the only one 
                         who can go in there and help them.
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         We don't know that Dr Jackson. I can't 
                         let you risk it. (Turns to the lab) 
                         Dr Warner will stay here . We'll get 
                         whoever else you think can help. But 
                         you're going to have to figure it out 
                         in there.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         I understand Sir.

               
               She turns round and winces.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Whoa! Oh, I think I spoke too soon.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         What's wrong?

               
                                     CARTER
                         Oh, God, something's happening.

               
               The organisms come out of her ear and drop to the floor. She 
               bends down and pokes them to check they are dead.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         I think they're dead. Daniel, I could 
                         have sworn I heard.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Machello?

               
                                     CARTER
                         Yes. He said my Goa'uld captor is dead, 
                         but I don't have a Goa'uld.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         You did.

               
                                     CARTER
                         That has to be it. Janet said that when 
                         a Goa'uld dies, it dissolves into a 
                         host and leaves a unique protein marker.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         So these Goa'uld killing inventions 
                         die because they detect the protein 
                         marker? That doesn't make any sense. 
                         Why isn't Jack immune? He should have 
                         some sort of protein marker left over 
                         from Hathor's Goa'uld.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         No. No. That Goa'uld left Colonel O'Neill's 
                         body and died before it had a chance 
                         to take over. Janet, can you hear me? 
                         Can we extract my blood and inject it 
                         into everyone that's infected.
 
               
                                     WARNER
                         No, your blood types don't match. You 
                         have to separate the protein from the 
                         rest of the blood.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Okay, how do I do that?

               
                                     WARNER
                         You don't have the necessary equipment 
                         there. Even if you did, it would take 
                         weeks.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Come on, there's gotta be a way! We've 
                         got all this stuff.
 
               
                                     WARNER
                         I'm sorry, but you need to use high 
                         pressure liquid chromatography to separate 
                         and isolate the protein factions from 
                         the rest of the blood. That would yield 
                         thirty to forty proteins. Then you'd 
                         have to test each one of them to find...
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Okay! I get the point.

               
                                     FRAISER
                         Centrifuge.

               
                                     CARTER
                         What? What about the centrifuge?

               
                                     FRAISER
                         Put as much blood as possible in centrifuge.
 
                         
               
               Sam rolls up her sleeve and prepares to take her own blood. Janet 
               starts stripping.
 
               
                                     WARNER
                         You're wasting your time Major.

               
               Sam gets the needle and injects it to take the blood.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Okay. Now what?

               
                                     FRAISER
                         It's too hot. It's too hot. They're 
                         trying to suffocate us.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Janet!

               
               Janet sees Sam's eyes glow.

               
                                     FRAISER
                         No! You're a Goa'uld! Stay away!

               
                                     CARTER
                         I'm not a Goa'uld, Janet. It's me- Sam. 
                         I'm your friend.
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         Put the test tube in the centrifuge.
 
                         
               
               Sam does so and turns it on. It stops spinning a time later and 
               she takes it out.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Janet. Get back with me here! We're 
                         trying to separate that protein from 
                         my blood, remember? The centrifuge just 
                         finished. Now what?
 
               
                                     WARNER
                         Major, you're wasting your time. If 
                         she thinks there's another way, she's 
                         not in her right mind. There's only 
                         one way to separate that protein.
 
                         
               
                                     FRAISER
                         You don't need to. Just need to separate 
                         red blood cells.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         What? What's she talking about?

               
                                     WARNER
                         I see where you're going. I see where 
                         you're going. Don't even try to separate 
                         the proteins. Just separate the rejectable 
                         parts and give them all the rest.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         What?

               
                                     WARNER
                         The part that makes blood types incompatible 
                         is just the red blood cells and a few 
                         things in the plasma. If we can get 
                         those out, the rest should be safe.
 
                         
               
                                     FRAISER
                         Quick freeze.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Quick freeze?

               
                                     WARNER
                         Major, look in the freezer over there. 
                         See if there's any dry ice.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Yeah, there's a ton of it.

               
                                     WARNER
                         Good. Follow my directions very carefully.
 
                         
               
               Some time later.

               
                                     WARNER
                         Looks good. Pick your first patient.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         This was your idea. Wanna be first?
 
                         
               
               Sam injects into Janet and goes over to Jack.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         You look terrible.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Thank you Sir. I need to give you a 
                         shot. Will you let me do that?
 
               
               She does so anyway.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Janet?

               
                                     FRAISER
                         Uh, I'm hearing.

               
                                     CARTER
                         You're hearing Machello?

               
                                     FRAISER
                         Yeah. Ahh!

               
               The organisms drop out of Janet's, then Jack's ears.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Ugh!

               
               Jack picks one up and drops it. Everyone smiles.

               
               Infirmary

               
               Teal'c is still lying in the bed. Janet picks up a syringe and 
               goes to inject it into his IV line.
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         Okay. Well, I don't know if this is 
                         going to work. He'll have the marker 
                         but he'll still have a Goa'uld larva. 
                         Depends on how smart Machello made the 
                         little beggars.
 
               
               A nurse gives Janet a suction device and they wait.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Machello!

               
               The remaining organism comes out of Teal'c ear. Everything is 
               fine again.
 
               
               THE END
