               SGC. LEVEL 22. Alt-Daniel and Alt-Sam are following General Hammond 
               along a corridor.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Look, the only reason you have the Stargate 
                         is cos of us!
 
                                     HAMMOND
                         Iím aware of that.

                                     DANIEL
                         Iím a linguist! By all accounts, your 
                         team may need one.
 
                                     CARTER
                         And what if something goes wrong with 
                         the Gate on the other end?
 
                                     HAMMOND
                         Neither of you have had any military 
                         training whatsoever. Have either one 
                         of you ever even fired a weapon of any 
                         kind?
 
                                     CARTER
                         Well ... unless you count launching 
                         a rocket.
 
                                     HAMMOND
                         Look, Iím sorry. (He reaches an elevator 
                         and swipes his card through the reader.) 
                         Your expertise may be needed some time 
                         in the future, but for now ...
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, can I ask who is going?

               (The elevator doors open and reveal Jack OíNeill standing inside.)
 
               
               
               BRIEFING ROOM. Hammond leads Jack, Sam and Daniel into the room.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         I donít understand. What made you change 
                         your mind?
 
               (Four airmen are sitting at the table with their backs to the 
               new arrivals. One of them swings around in his chair and we see 
               that it is Major Charlie Kawalsky. He smiles, and he and his 
               colleagues stand.)
 
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Hi, Jack.

                                     OíNEILL
                         Thatís ďColonelĒ, Major.

                                     KAWALSKY
                         Youíre retired.

                                     OíNEILL
                         I was.

                                     DANIEL
                         I take it you two know each other.
 
                         
                                     OíNEILL
                         Yeah, we served together a long time 
                         ago.
 
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Ah, it wasnít that long ago.

                                     HAMMOND
                         Major Kawalsky has been assigned to 
                         assemble the team that will go through 
                         the Stargate.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         And you knew I couldnít say no if he 
                         was involved.
 
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Oh, come on, Colonel. You donít owe 
                         me anything. Admit it - youíve gotta 
                         be a little curious: travelling to a 
                         different planet - through a wormhole!
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         I know I am!

                                     KAWALSKY
                         Sir, with all due respect - what are 
                         they still doing here?
 
                                     HAMMOND
                         Iím not sure. (He turns to a couple 
                         of airmen who had accompanied him and 
                         the others into the room.) Airmen, please 
                         escort ...
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Wait-wait-wait-wait-wait-wait-wait. 
                         We were all on that tape.
 
                                     KAWALSKY
                         That tape had nothing to do with it. 
                         Jack OíNeillís one of the best Iíve 
                         ever served with.
 
                                     CARTER
                         You may not care that this timeline 
                         is a direct result of tampering with 
                         the past, but you have to acknowledge 
                         that the tape said the planet youíre 
                         going to is enemy territory - an enemy 
                         that is way more advanced than us technologically.
 
                         
                                     OíNEILL
                         Whatís your point?

                                     CARTER
                         Youíre literally walking into a totally 
                         alien situation outmanned and outgunned.
 
                         
                                     OíNEILL
                         Do we have a choice?

               (Sam looks round at Daniel, but neither of them has an answer 
               for him.)
 
               
               LAB. Jack is standing looking at the Ancient time ship. Sam and 
               Daniel join him.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Weíve only been able to activate the 
                         interior lights and the dialling computer, 
                         but according to the tape, you have 
                         the gene that can make this ship fly.
 
                         
                                     OíNEILL
                         And travel through time.

                                     DANIEL
                         Well, presumably you donít have to do 
                         that if you donít want to.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Hmm!

               (He walks around the ship to the rear and then walks inside, 
               Sam and Daniel following him. He walks to the front of the ship, 
               looking around as he goes, and reaches the pilotís seat. He looks 
               round at Sam.)
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         What do I do?

                                     CARTER
                         Sit down.

               (Jack sits. Daniel takes the co-pilotís seat and Sam stands in 
               between them.)
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Now what?

                                     DANIEL
                         Youíre supposed to have the ability 
                         to fly this thing.
 
                                     CARTER
                         With your mind. (Jack takes the controls 
                         and wiggles them but nothing happens.) 
                         Try not to think about the past.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Or the future.

               (Jack rocks his head in a ďYeah, right!Ē kind of gesture, then 
               closes his eyes and concentrates. The lights on the console come 
               on. Outside, technicians and SFs turn and stare as the engine 
               can be heard powering up.)
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Oh, you so have to let us go with you!
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         Please!

               
               GATEROOM. The time ship has been moved into position facing the 
               Stargate. Jack, Kawalsky and his team, together with Sam and 
               Daniel, all dressed in green camouflage, walk alongside the ship 
               to face the Gate. Kawalsky and his team are already wearing hard 
               helmets. Sam and Daniel are carrying theirs.
 
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Put those on.

               (Sam and Daniel do as theyíre told. Jack makes a big deal of 
               shaking out a green cap and putting that on. Daniel looks round 
               at him.)
 
                                     DANIEL
                         How come we have to wear these and you 
                         donít?
 
               (Hammond comes in.)

                                     HAMMOND
                         OK, people. Let me remind you: this 
                         missionís recon only. Do not engage 
                         the enemy. Iím allowing the use of this 
                         ship because of the obvious tactical 
                         advantage it provides you. Under no 
                         circumstances is it to be used to travel 
                         through time, understood?
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Yes, sir.

                                     HAMMOND
                         Never in my life would I have imagined 
                         giving that order! (He walks over to 
                         Jack, nodding towards Sam and Daniel.) 
                         Are you absolutely certain about them, 
                         Colonel?
 
               (Jack looks at the two of them, then turns back to Hammond.)
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         No, sir!

               (Hammond looks at Sam and Daniel, then turns to Jack again.)
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Good luck - and Godspeed. (He leaves 
                         the room.)
 
                                     KAWALSKY
                         All aboard.

               (The team board the ship, Kawalsky taking the co-pilotís seat 
               and Daniel sitting behind him. Sam sits behind Jack. The other 
               three airmen sit on a bench in the rear of the ship with the 
               time device.)
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Hey - watch this! (He dramatically puts 
                         his hands onto the console and it lights 
                         up. He takes his hands off again in 
                         a triumphant gesture. Kawalsky raises 
                         a hand in a ďnot bad!Ē gesture. Jack 
                         turns to Daniel.) Oh, by the way - you 
                         do have the address to get us back home, 
                         correct?
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah.

                                     OíNEILL
                         Good. Dial it up.

               (Daniel stands up and steps forward to the dialling device. He 
               pushes the first symbol, and the Stargate immediately starts 
               to spin. The chevron clunks, and the Gate spins on. In the area 
               which we know as the Control Room, Hammond and McKay are watching.)
 
               
                                     MCKAY
                         I give this no more than a fifty:fifty 
                         chance of working.
 
                                     HAMMOND
                         Well, according to the tape, it worked 
                         for eight years.
 
                                     MCKAY
                         Hmm.

               (In the ship, Daniel presses the Point of Origin symbol, then 
               pushes a button at the bottom of the dialling device which must 
               be the equivalent of the big orange button on a DHD. The Stargate 
               kawhooshes. Everybody stares out of the windscreen in amazement.)
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Wow!

               (In the Control Room, Hammond and McKay are also staring.)

                                     MCKAY
                         Well, Iím certainly glad itís not me 
                         going through that, uh ... thing.
 
                         
               (Inside the ship)

                                     OíNEILL
                         Any idea what to expect?

                                     CARTER
                         Not really. According to the tape, weíre 
                         going to be demolecularised, transmitted 
                         over two thousand light years through 
                         subspace, and then, uh, rematerialised 
                         on the other side.
 
                                     KAWALSKY
                         I did not need to know that!

                                     OíNEILL
                         OK.

               (In the Control Room, McKay bends down to a radio.)

                                     MCKAY
                         Gateship One, youíre go for launch.
 
                         
               (Jack turns round to the others with a look of disgust on his 
               face.)
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         ďGateshipĒ?!

                                     DANIEL
                         Well, itís a ship, it goes through the 
                         Gate, so ...
 
               (Sam nods in agreement.)

                                     OíNEILL
                         Alright.

               (In the Control Room, Hammond has a similar expression to Jackís. 
               McKay notices.)
 
                                     MCKAY
                         What? Itís a ship that goes through 
                         the Gate - itís a Gateship! Well, I 
                         thought it was clever.
 
               (In the ship, Jack takes hold of the controls. Daniel screws 
               up his face nervously. Sam does likewise. The ship lifts off 
               the ground and flies into the wormhole.)
 
               
               WORMHOLE TRAVEL.

               
               CHULAK. The ship shoots out of the wormhole. As soon as it clears 
               the Stargate, engine pods deploy from either side of the ship. 
               The ship flies away from the Gate and over the forest.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Well, that was cool!

                                     DANIEL
                         I didnít feel anything.

                                     KAWALSKY
                         Doesnít even feel like weíre pulling 
                         any gís.
 
                                     CARTER
                         This thing must have inertial dampeners.
 
                         
                                     KAWALSKY
                         See any enemy troops when we came through?
 
                         
                                     OíNEILL
                         No, but that doesnít mean we werenít 
                         detected.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Is that a city?

               (We see that the ship is approaching the city of Chulak.)

                                     OíNEILL
                         Iím gonna set her down in those trees.
 
                         
               
               SHORTLY AFTERWARDS. The ship has landed and the ramp lowers. 
               Kawalskyís men run out with their rifles raised, checking out 
               the area. Daniel and Sam follow.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Wait a minute - I thought the reason 
                         why we brought the ship was so we didnít 
                         have to walk.
 
                                     CARTER
                         We canít just fly into an alien city. 
                         The mission is stealth recon, meaning 
                         undetected.
 
               (Jack pushes his way between them.)

                                     OíNEILL
                         Meaning shut up!

                                     CARTER
                         Sorry.

                                     KAWALSKY
                         Connor, Mansfield, guard the ship. Cosworth 
                         - youíre with us. Címon, move out! (He 
                         and Jack head off.)
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Whyíd we have to park so far away?!
 
                         
               (Sam chuckles as they follow. Cosworth walks behind them.)

               
               FOREST. Jack and Kawalsky are leading the others.

                                     KAWALSKY
                         Seriously, why did we bring them?

                                     OíNEILL
                         Oh, I dunno. I guess I had a gut feeling.
 
                         
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Like Peru?

                                     OíNEILL
                         Alright, that didnít work out so well.
 
                         
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Sierra Leone? Uganda?

                                     OíNEILL
                         Alright, look - maybe the better question 
                         here is whyíd you invite me on this 
                         dog and pony?
 
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Well, letís just say I prefer my good 
                         instinct over yours.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Yeah.

               (As they continue to walk along, Daniel points out something 
               to Sam in the trees, perhaps a bird. Jack suddenly stops dead. 
               He raises his clenched fist, then gestures downwards. He, Kawalsky 
               and Cosworth squat down. Sam and Daniel stop and stare, then 
               slowly do the same.)
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Whatís with the ...? (He mimics Jackís 
                         gestures, adding a few of his own for 
                         good measure.)
 
               (The airmen look around cautiously. Suddenly a round device flies 
               out of the trees and lands in front of them. They have no idea 
               what it is but we recognise it as a Goaíuld stun grenade. It 
               is ticking. Jack stares at it for a moment, then realises what 
               it might be.)
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Ah, sh...

               (The grenade emits a bright light, and everyone is knocked unconscious. 
               Jaffa run out of the trees and bushes, aiming staff weapons at 
               them.)
 
               
               PRISON CELL (the same one that SG-1 were held in in ďChildren 
               of the GodsĒ). Jack, Sam and Kawalsky are sitting on the floor 
               leaning against the steps just inside the doors. Cosworth is 
               sitting and leaning against the wall near the doors. Daniel is 
               lying on the floor deeper inside the cell. His glasses are gone. 
               He wakes and sits up.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Hello? Anybody there? (We see his point 
                         of view as he looks around. His vision 
                         is very blurred and he can only see 
                         vague shapes.)
 
                                     CARTER
                         Weíre all here.

                                     DANIEL
                         Where are we?

                                     KAWALSKY
                         It looks like a prison cell.

                                     DANIEL
                         Anyone seen my glasses?

                                     CARTER
                         I think they must have taken them. (We 
                         see that she doesnít have her glasses 
                         either.)
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Why would they do that?

               (Sam shrugs. At that moment they hear approaching footsteps. 
               They all get to their feet and face the cell doors. We see the 
               legs of two Jaffa approach and take position either side of the 
               doors. The doors opens and a third pair of legs walks into the 
               cell. This Jaffa is wearing a cloak. He stops at the top of the 
               steps and we see who it is.)
 
                                     CARTER
                         Tealíc!

               (This version of Tealíc is wearing a Jaffa cap on his head, so 
               he may well be bald underneath.)
 
                                     DANIEL
                         From the tape?

                                     TEALíC
                         If you know my name, then you know enough 
                         to fear me.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Look, I know that this might sound a 
                         little crazy, but ...
 
                                     TEALíC
                         Who are you?

               (Jack starts to speak but Daniel interrupts.)

                                     DANIEL
                         Hi, uh ... (He walks forward, bumping 
                         into Jack and working his way around 
                         him to approach Tealíc.) Uh, uh, weíre 
                         from the Tauíri. Uh, we call it Earth. 
                         You see, we found this tape, um, from 
                         the past. You see, apparently, weíre 
                         (he gestures at the others) a part of 
                         a team - um, the four of us (indicating 
                         Jack, Sam, himself and Tealíc), not 
                         the two of them (indicating Kawalsky 
                         and Cosworth). Weíre called SG-1. Now, 
                         we used this time device to go back 
                         in the past, and we screwed up the past 
                         and changed the future. See, youíre 
                         not supposed to be still Apophisí First 
                         Prime. Um, the Jaffa are supposed to 
                         be free and, um, (he lowers his voice 
                         so that the other Jaffa canít hear) 
                         we know that you think the Goaíuld are 
                         false gods.
 
               (Tealíc backhands him to the floor. Sam, Kawalsky and Cosworth 
               run to help him.)
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         That wasnít necessary!

                                     TEALíC
                         Speak of such blasphemy again and I 
                         will kill you where you stand.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Look, I know this is a lot to throw 
                         at you all at one time and youíve gotta 
                         put up a little show for the boys here, 
                         but the fact is, (he whispers) we know 
                         the truth.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         You see, itís all on the tape. Uh, you 
                         have to see it - itís, er, um, (Jack 
                         pushes Danielís hand off his shoulder) 
                         itís, itís in a - itís in a camera that, 
                         um, um, you took from the bag that you 
                         took from me. (Tealíc walks towards 
                         him.) If you bring it to me, I can, 
                         I can show you how it works and we can 
                         ... (Tealíc grabs him by the neck of 
                         his jacket and starts to march him out 
                         of the cell.) Sure, we could, we could 
                         go and see it over at, uh, wherever 
                         you wanna go.
 
               (Tealíc marches him out of sight. The other two Jaffa, who have 
               been aiming their staff weapons at the team, back out of the 
               cell and the doors close.)
 
               
               SHORTLY AFTERWARDS. Tealíc, still holding Daniel by the neck 
               of his jacket, marches him into a throneroom and stops. Daniel 
               squints at the hazy sight of someone sitting on a throne in front 
               of him. Tealíc shoves Daniel to the floor at the bottom of the 
               steps which lead up to the throne.
 
                                     TEALíC
                         Kneel before your god.

                                     DANIEL
                         Kneeling! (He straightens up and we 
                         see that it is Apophis sitting on the 
                         throne. This alt-version has a beard.)
 
                         
                                     APOPHIS
                         Who are you?

                                     DANIEL
                         Nameís Daniel Jackson. Uh, if you give 
                         me back my eyeglasses, I could actually 
                         see you.
 
                                     TEALíC
                         He claims he is of the Tauíri.

                                     DANIEL
                         You werenít supposed to tell him that.
 
                         
                                     APOPHIS
                         The Tauíri have no chappaíai.

                                     DANIEL
                         Oh! Sorry, guess I was wrong. Iím sure 
                         your information is correct and ... 
                         In fact, Iím usually quite wrong, quite 
                         unreliable actually. To be honest with 
                         you, Iím insane. (He grins at Apophis.)
 
                         
                                     APOPHIS
                         Speak! (Daniel says nothing.) Bring 
                         him. (Tealíc hauls Daniel to his feet 
                         and marches him up the steps, pushing 
                         him to his knees again in front of the 
                         throne. Apophis stands and walks forward 
                         to face Daniel.) I think there is much 
                         you can tell me.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, if you wanna know about the early 
                         settlements of Mesopotamia, I am somewhat 
                         of an expert ...
 
               (Apophis raises his hand and actives his ribbon device. Daniel 
               grunts in pain.)
 
               
               PRISON CELL. Cosworth is trying to get a smaller door in the 
               rear of the cell open but fails. He turns to Kawalsky, who is 
               standing at the main doors, and shrugs.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Itís been over an hour.

               (Kawalsky looks across to Jack, who is leaning against the main 
               doors with his chin propped up on one of the links that makes 
               up the doors.)
 
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Maybe you shouldnít have said anything.
 
                         
                                     OíNEILL
                         All I said was, ďThis is gonna sound 
                         a little crazyĒ.
 
                                     CARTER
                         While there are obvious similarities, 
                         our timeline is different from the one 
                         in which Tealíc came to believe that 
                         the Goaíuld were false gods.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Are you saying this guy might not turn?
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         Itís possible.

                                     OíNEILL
                         And youíre telling me this now?!

               (Sam cringes.)

               
               THRONEROOM. Apophis is still holding Daniel in the grip of his 
               ribbon device. Tealíc watches impassively as Daniel grunts in 
               agony. Finally Apophis releases his grip and Daniel slumps to 
               the floor.
 
                                     TEALíC
                         This one is strong.

                                     APOPHIS
                         Leave us.

               (Tealíc bows and starts to walk away. Daniel pushes himself up 
               onto his hands and looks up at Apophis.)
 
                                     APOPHIS
                         You will tell me all that you know. 
                         (He activates the ribbon device again. 
                         Daniel groans. Tealíc looks back, his 
                         face a little more concerned now. He 
                         looks thoughtful, then leaves the throneroom.)
 
                         
               
               PRISON CELL. Jack and Kawalsky are still leaning against the 
               main doors. Sam is sitting on the steps but she gets up and walks 
               to the doors as they hear approaching footsteps. Tealíc comes 
               to the doors and looks at them.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Whatís goiní on?

               (Tealíc holds up the video camera.)

                                     TEALíC
                         Show me.

               (Sam steps forward and takes the camera. She opens the screen 
               and activates the camera. Danielís voice can be heard as she 
               turns the screen so that Tealíc can see it.)
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Um, Tealíc, you should say something.
 
                         
               (Tealíc stares at the screen as his alternate self, with hair 
               and wearing a pale robe, steps into view.)
 
                                     TEALíC
                         The Jaffa are free. False god that he 
                         is, Apophis is long dead. A new medicine, 
                         tretonin, has liberated us from our 
                         dependence upon symbionts. The Jaffa 
                         have risen up as brothers and sisters 
                         and defeated the Goaíuld.
 
                                     ALT-TEALíC
                         What trickery is this?

                                     CARTER
                         Itís not a trick.

                                     TEALíC
                         You have a son, Ryaíc, who is now married 
                         and a strong leader among the newly-formed 
                         Jaffa nation. If all these things have 
                         not come to pass, you must believe that 
                         the present in which you now live exists 
                         only because the past has been mistakenly 
                         altered. It must be restored.
 
               (Sam shuts off the tape and closes the screen down.)

                                     CARTER
                         Please. You have to help us. The reason 
                         we came here was to get you so we could 
                         go back in time and fix things.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Thatís not true. (Sam turns and stares 
                         at him. Jack looks at Tealíc.) We just 
                         wanna get out of here. Now, if you can 
                         help us, weíll do our best to help you.
 
                         
                                     TEALíC
                         I cannot free you.

                                     OíNEILL
                         What about our weapons, our vests? Can 
                         you get us those?
 
               (Tealíc looks at him, considering his request.)

               
               LATER. The doors to the cell open and a couple of Jaffa drag 
               Daniel in by his arms and drop him down at the top of the steps.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Easy, easy! (The Jaffa turn and leave.) 
                         Get outta here! (The doors close.) Pissants! 
                         (He squats down to Daniel and puts his 
                         hand on his chest.) Hey.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         I didnít tell them anything.

                                     OíNEILL
                         Good for you! Howíre you feeliní?

                                     DANIEL
                         Not so good really.

                                     OíNEILL
                         Sorry. (He gestures to the others, who 
                         run to a corner of the cell. Jack hauls 
                         Daniel to his feet.) Maybe thisíll make 
                         you feel better.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Argh! (He shakes it off and he and Jack 
                         head down to the others, who have collected 
                         their vests from where they had hidden 
                         them and are putting them on. Cosworth 
                         hands Danielís vest to him.) Howíd you 
                         ...?
 
                                     CARTER
                         Tealíc. He brought us the camera. I 
                         showed him the tape.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         I donít think he can be trusted.

                                     OíNEILL
                         He gave us our weapons back, thatís 
                         a good start.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Heís gonna meet us on the way back to 
                         the ship.
 
               (Kawalsky is attaching a piece of C4 to the smaller door. Jack 
               hands a pistol to Daniel.)
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Safety off, point and shoot. (Daniel 
                         takes it and lifts it. Itís now pointing 
                         at Jack, who pushes it down again.) 
                         Not at me.
 
               (Cosworth hands a pistol to Sam.)

                                     CARTER
                         I donít really like guns.

                                     OíNEILL
                         Neither do I. How do you feel about 
                         explosives?
 
                                     CARTER
                         Those I like a little better.

               (Kawalsky returns from the door.)

                                     KAWALSKY
                         Cover.

                                     OíNEILL
                         Letís go. (They move away from the door 
                         and take cover. Jack takes out the detonator 
                         and nods to the others. Sam puts her 
                         fingers in her ears. Jack presses the 
                         button and the C4 explodes.)
 
               
               FOREST. The team are running through the forest, returning to 
               the time ship. Jack speaks into his radio.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Airman? This is OíNeill.

               (Either Connor or Mansfield replies.)

                                     AIRMAN
                         We were starting to get worried.

                                     OíNEILL
                         Weíre on our way. ETA ten minutes.
 
                         
               (Ahead of them, Tealíc steps into view. He points his staff weapon 
               at the team and activates it. Everybody stops and the airmen 
               raise their weapons. Sam briefly raises her pistol but then lowers 
               it again.)
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Weíve gotta get goiní here. Weíve got 
                         a whole battalion on our asses.
 
               (Tealíc fires, shooting Daniel in the chest. The others stare 
               in disbelief. Kawalsky raises his rifle but Tealíc deactivates 
               his staff weapon and lowers it.)
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         What the hell was that?

                                     KAWALSKY
                         Shoot him, Jack. Letís shoot him and 
                         get the hell out of here.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Whyíd you do that?

                                     TEALíC
                         He was a Goaíuld. Apophis implanted 
                         him with a symbiont in order to gain 
                         access to the knowledge in his mind.
 
                         
                                     OíNEILL
                         How do you know?

                                     TEALíC
                         I can sense it. Your friend did not 
                         give in to torture.
 
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Heís lying.

                                     OíNEILL
                         Why would he lie, Kawalsky?

                                     CARTER
                         If he wanted us all dead, why arenít 
                         we surrounded by Jaffa right now?
 
                         
                                     KAWALSKY
                         We will be in a few seconds if we donít 
                         get the hell out of here now - and Iím 
                         not taking him with us.
 
                                     TEALíC
                         Apophis has ordered a fleet of haítak 
                         vessels to the Tauíri.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Heís sending ships to Earth?

                                     TEALíC
                         The symbiont implanted within Daniel 
                         Jackson was a spy intended to accompany 
                         you. Apophis now knows what Daniel Jackson 
                         knew. He knows that you came in a ship. 
                         He knows that the Tauíri is a threat.
 
                         
                                     KAWALSKY
                         How the hell do we know youíre not a 
                         spy?
 
               (Lying on the ground, Daniel suddenly raises the hand with the 
               pistol in it and shoots Cosworth twice in the chest. He then 
               sits up and fires twice more at the others. One of the bullets 
               hits Tealíc in the arm. Jack and Kawalsky turn and open fire 
               on him. Daniel sinks back to the ground, his eyes open and staring. 
               After a moment, they flash.)
 
                                     CARTER
                         His eyes glowed!

               (Kawalsky runs back and checks that Daniel is really dead this 
               time, then goes over to Cosworth to check his pulse. He looks 
               round at Jack and shakes his head.)
 
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Heís dead.

               (Staff blasts start to come out of the trees behind them. Jack 
               turns and fires in their direction.)
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Go! Go!

               (The others run off as Jack continues to cover them. The team 
               races through the forest towards the time ship, staff blasts 
               going off all around them. Just as they reach the ship, one of 
               the airmen who had been guarding it gets hit by a staff blast. 
               Itís clear that Jaffa are firing from all directions, not just 
               from the direction that the team came. Tealíc and Sam run inside 
               the ship. Kawalsky turns and covers the path they just came down. 
               Jack runs to the entrance of the ship and fires in the opposite 
               direction. From inside the ship, Tealíc fires his staff weapon 
               out to the rear and Sam fires her pistol. The other airman is 
               taken down by a staff blast.)
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Kawalsky!

                                     KAWALSKY
                         Go! Start it up!

               (Jack runs into the ship as Kawalsky and Tealíc - and Sam to 
               a lesser extent - continue to provide cover fire. Jack jumps 
               into the pilotís seat. A staff blast impacts the wall near to 
               where heís sitting. Kawalsky turns to run to the ship but is 
               shot in the back by a staff blast.)
 
                                     CARTER
                         Kawalskyís been hit!

                                     TEALíC
                         Go!

               (Jack activates the control that raises the ramp. Tealíc continues 
               firing at the approaching Jaffa until the ramp protects him. 
               The ship lifts into the air, then the engine pods extend and 
               the ship flies off. Inside, Sam sinks down onto a bench, shocked 
               by what sheís just been through. Tealíc turns to look at her.)
 
               
                                     TEALíC
                         Are you injured?

                                     CARTER
                         No. I-Iíve just never seen anyone killed 
                         before. Daniel, and Kawalsky ... (She 
                         notices the wound in Tealícís arm.) 
                         Oh my God! Youíve been shot!
 
                                     TEALíC
                         It will heal.

                                     OíNEILL
                         Alright, weíve got some problems here.
 
                         
               (A blast impacts the ship. From outside, we see that the ship 
               is being pursued by two death gliders. Jack flies the ship erratically 
               in an attempt to avoid the blasts coming from the gliders. Sam 
               comes forward to the co-pilotís seat and stares as the blasts 
               that donít hit the ship explode in the forest in front of them. 
               Tealíc sits down behind Sam.)
 
                                     TEALíC
                         Gliders.

                                     OíNEILL
                         I canít shake Ďem, either.

               (More blasts impact the ship, causing explosions inside.)

                                     TEALíC
                         The Gate will be well-guarded.

                                     OíNEILL
                         You know somethiní? I donít think weíre 
                         gonna make it to the Gate.
 
               (Sam looks round at the time device in the rear of the ship, 
               then looks at Jack.)
 
                                     CARTER
                         There is a way out. (To Tealíc) Was 
                         there a Stargate on this planet five 
                         thousand years ago?
 
                                     TEALíC
                         I believe so.

               (Sam looks at Jack. As he returns her gaze, she nods encouragingly 
               to him. He closes his eyes and concentrates. After some moments, 
               the time device lights up. From an outside perspective, the ship 
               is flying away from the gliders in daylight. A moment later, 
               it is suddenly sunset and the gliders have gone.)
 
                                     CARTER
                         I think you did it!

                                     TEALíC
                         What has he done?

                                     CARTER
                         I think we just travelled back in time.
 
                         
                                     OíNEILL
                         Check it out - dial Earth.

               (Sam dials the co-ordinates on the dialling device.)

               
               WORMHOLE TRAVEL.

               
               EARTH. The time ship shoots out of the wormhole and into a desert 
               area. Two pyramids are nearby. Both have a mothership parked 
               over them.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Well, this is definitely ancient Egypt!
 
                         
                                     TEALíC
                         Those haítak vessels bore the mark of 
                         Ra.
 
                                     CARTER
                         He ruled on Earth during this period.
 
                         
                                     TEALíC
                         It is likely we were detected on exiting 
                         the chappaíai.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Well, no ships on our tail, but I think 
                         weíll skedaddle anyway.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Youíre saying youíre onboard with trying 
                         to fix the past?
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Well, we did kinda screw up our timeline, 
                         didnít we?
 
                                     CARTER
                         Well, the only way to stop the invasion 
                         on Earth is to make sure that it never 
                         happens.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Yeah - remind me how we do that, again?
 
                         
               (Sam has no answer.)

               
               LATER. The time ship has parked out in the desert. Jack, Sam 
               and Tealíc come outside.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Alright - hereís the plan. We make contact 
                         with the locals.
 
                                     TEALíC
                         And then?

                                     OíNEILL
                         Thatís all I got so far.

               (The team starts to walk.)

                                     CARTER
                         Uh, any idea what time it is exactly?
 
                         
               (Jack looks at his watch.)

                                     OíNEILL
                         Three oíclock.

                         Uh, sorry, I-I kinda meant what year.
 
                         
                                     OíNEILL
                         Well, you and Daniel said there was 
                         some kind of a failed rebellion.
 
                                     CARTER
                         In 2995 BC.

               (Jack turns to her with a mock look of shock on his face.)

                                     OíNEILL
                         BC?!

               EGYPTIAN TENT VILLAGE (the same one we saw in Part 1). As the 
               team walks into the village, a young boy runs to his father in 
               alarm.
 
                                     BOY
                         Mariíbe! Mariíbe! Mariíbe!

               (The man scoops the boy up into his arms.)

                         I doubt they speak English.

               (A young man approaches them and we realise that this is Katep, 
               the man whose brother was killed by Ra in the temple in Part 
               1.)

                         Yes. I am Katep.

                         Please come with me. Raís patrols come 
                         through here often. They must not see 
                         you, (he looks at Tealíc) especially 
                         you. Please, come. (He leads them away.)
 
                         
               
               TENT. Katep leads the team to a tent.

                         Please. (He stands in the doorway as 
                         the others walk in.)
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         How do you know who we are?

                                     KATEP
                         This is not the first time we have met.
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         You knew the other SG-1 team.

                                     KATEP
                         Five years ago you came. You were witness 
                         to the death of my brother at the hands 
                         of Ra. After you were trapped here, 
                         we planned an uprising together.
 
                                     CARTER
                         So much for causality!

                                     TEALíC
                         Ra is still here. We have seen his ship.
 
                         
                                     KATEP
                         Our first attempt at gathering forces 
                         for the rebellion did not go well. We 
                         had to expose ourselves to those who 
                         proved still loyal to Ra. You were captured 
                         and executed long before the plan could 
                         be finished.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Really? All of us?

                                     KATEP
                         All but one.

               (A man walks into the tent, his head covered with a hood. He 
               throws the hood back and we see that itís Daniel. Sam smiles.)
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, this canít be a good sign.

                                     OíNEILL
                         Whyís that?

                                     DANIEL
                         Where am I?

                                     OíNEILL
                         Ancient Egypt?

                                     DANIEL
                         No, I mean the me from your timeline.
 
                         
                                     TEALíC
                         I killed you.

                                     DANIEL
                         Why?

                                     TEALíC
                         You were a Goaíuld spy.

                                     DANIEL
                         Good reason.

                                     CARTER
                         It was horrible.

                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, Iím sure. Why are you here?

                                     OíNEILL
                         Yes - excellent question.

                                     DANIEL
                         You donít know?

                                     OíNEILL
                         Well, I thought I did, there, for a 
                         while, and then I realised I ... didnít.
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, I know why Iím here.

                                     OíNEILL
                         Good! Letís start there.

                                     DANIEL
                         We came back in time to get a ZPM.
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         Right! It was buried with the tape. 
                         Why is it so important? I think you 
                         were about to explain it but the, uh, 
                         the-the batteries on the camera ran 
                         out.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Long story. Why donít you take a seat? 
                         (Jack and Sam sit down but Tealíc remains 
                         standing.) Basically we got trapped 
                         here because you (he points to Sam) 
                         didnít want to affect the timeline, 
                         but ultimately you (he looks at Jack) 
                         and you (he looks at Tealíc) couldnít 
                         stand the idea of living out the rest 
                         of your lives under Raís rule without 
                         doing anything. We remembered there 
                         was a rebellion here on Earth - thatís 
                         how the Gate got buried in the first 
                         place, so we figured what difference 
                         does it make if weíre involved or not? 
                         Unfortunately we never got a chance 
                         to execute the plan.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         We heard.

                                     DANIEL
                         Yes. We tried to do too much too fast. 
                         Since then, Katep and I have been slowly 
                         building up an underground movement. 
                         I can only assume things donít go well 
                         because if youíre here, you saw the 
                         tape and the future still needs fixing.
 
                         
                                     OíNEILL
                         Somethiní like that.

                                     CARTER
                         Oh, we didnít just see the tape. We 
                         saw the tablet.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         What tablet?

                                     CARTER
                         Oh. The one you havenít written yet, 
                         and put where the Stargate was supposed 
                         to be buried.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         ďSupposed to beĒ?

                                     CARTER
                         In our timeline, the rebellion that 
                         you planned actually works. Ra ends 
                         up leaving, and Earth is freed, but, 
                         uh, Ra takes the Stargate with him.
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         OK, thatís a problem.

                                     CARTER
                         Yes! The Gate is never found at Giza, 
                         and none of us join the Stargate programme 
                         - but you left a tablet in an obscure 
                         Egyptian dialect telling us the date 
                         of the rebellion and where to find the 
                         second Stargate in Antarctica.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Good for me! So youíre here to make 
                         sure Ra doesnít take the Stargate.
 
                         
                                     OíNEILL
                         Itís a plan.

               (A young boy runs in.)

                                     BOY
                         Daneel! Daneel! Jaffa!

                                     KATEP
                         We must hide.

                                     OíNEILL
                         Where?

                                     KATEP
                         In here. (He and the boy pull back a 
                         rug on the floor and start brushing 
                         the sand away with their hands. Daniel 
                         beckons to Jack, Sam and Tealíc as Katep 
                         and the boy lift up a stone slab. Underneath 
                         is a ladder leading down into a chamber.)
 
                         
               
               (Outside, a Jaffa patrol walks into the village. They shove the 
               villagers around and start to search the tents. A Horus guard 
               stands and watches.)
 
               
               (In the chamber, Daniel climbs down the ladder and joins the 
               other three. He takes a burning torch from Jack and shows them 
               whatís in the chamber. There are many staff weapons lining the 
               walls, and many zat guns lying on boxes.)
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Sweet!

               (Up above them, a Jaffa walks into the tent and turns to call 
               to his colleagues.)
 
                                     JAFFA
                         Kree! Lokínel!

               (As other Jaffa walk in, Katep and the boy surreptitiously step 
               forward so that they are standing on top of the stone slab, now 
               covered with a rug again.)
 
               (In the chamber)

                                     DANIEL
                         Weíve got secret stores of weapons like 
                         this in several positions throughout 
                         the region.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         How many troops?

                                     DANIEL
                         Uh, a couple of thousand, but thatís 
                         not really the issue. According to you, 
                         my own account of history says we win 
                         the revolt.
 
                                     CARTER
                         We just need to make sure that the Gate 
                         stays here and gets buried.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Which means we have to steal it and 
                         hide it from Ra.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         But itís out in the open, close to a 
                         ship.
 
                                     TEALíC
                         Holding such a position against a haítak 
                         would be virtually impossible, even 
                         for a short period of time.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Also, the Gate is kinda heavy.

                                     DANIEL
                         We also have a ship.

                                     OíNEILL
                         Yes, but you see, the ship fits in the 
                         Gate, not the other way around.
 
                                     CARTER
                         There has to be a way that we can cable 
                         the Gate to the ship - fly it out.
 
                         
                                     OíNEILL
                         Yeah, but weíve still gotta get close 
                         to it without being detected.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, thatís easy. The ship has a cloaking 
                         device ... (the others stare at him) 
                         makes it invisible.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Youíre telling me this now?!

                                     DANIEL
                         I was sure I mentioned it on the tape.
 
                         
               (Jack looks round at Sam, who shakes her head.)

                                     TEALíC
                         If we were able to time our approach 
                         to co-ordinate with the uprising, we 
                         may yet have a chance.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Weíll need to test the cloak. We took 
                         an awful lot of damage coming out of 
                         Chulak.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Because we didnít know about the damned 
                         cloak!
 
                                     DANIEL
                         I was sure I mentioned it on the tape!
 
                         
               (Above their heads, the stone cover to the chamber is lifted. 
               Katep looks down at the team.)
 
                                     KATEP
                         They are gone!

               
               DESERT. Jack and Sam are walking to the time ship.

                                     CARTER
                         Do you ever wonder what your lifeís 
                         gonna be like in the future?
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Wonít really be my life, will it?

                                     CARTER
                         No, but still. I mean, Iíve led such 
                         a small and unimportant existence, I 
                         canít ever imagine being a hero who 
                         saves the planet.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Well, we do have a time machine. We 
                         could go check it out.
 
                                     CARTER
                         No way. Weíve already screwed up enough. 
                         Once weíre done with the Gate, we need 
                         to destroy the ship.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Seriously?

                                     CARTER
                         Absolutely.

                                     OíNEILL
                         You mean we have to stay here?

               (Sam nods and they continue walking.)

                                     CARTER
                         I wonder if the future me has a boyfriend?
 
                         
               
               TIME SHIP. Jack and Sam walk in and Jack sits in the pilotís 
               seat. He slaps the edge of the console a few times to activate 
               it.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         So what do I do?

                                     CARTER
                         Um, try thinking ďinvisibleĒ.

               (Jack shrugs, then puts his hands on the console.)

                                     OíNEILL
                         OK. (He closes his eyes and concentrates. 
                         Sam looks around hopefully. After a 
                         few seconds Jack opens his eyes.) How 
                         do we know if itís working?
 
               (Sam raises a finger, then trots outside and looks at the ship.)
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Nope!

               
               KATEPíS TENT. Daniel and Katep stand with Tealíc as he unrolls 
               a map and looks at it.
 
                                     TEALíC
                         Your strategy is good, but it does not 
                         work well as a distraction in our plan 
                         to steal the chappaíai.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Wait - we know this plan works. If we 
                         alter it ...
 
                                     KATEP
                         ... we may fail.

                                     DANIEL
                         With this plan, the uprising succeeds 
                         and Ra leaves.
 
                                     TEALíC
                         And Ra takes the chappaíai. If we are 
                         to be successful in keeping Ra from 
                         taking the chappaíai, we must focus 
                         the efforts of the rebellion on distracting 
                         him from it. (Katep looks at Daniel, 
                         who sighs uncertainly. Tealíc looks 
                         at him.) Trust me.
 
               
               TIME SHIP. Sam has opened a panel near the rear of the ship and 
               takes out a glass panel. A cable is hanging from the ceiling 
               and she takes the end and starts tinkering with the panel. Jack 
               comes from the front of the ship and looks at her.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Howís it goiní?

                                     CARTER
                         Iíve never seen this kind of technology 
                         before.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Hey, youíre supposed to be a genius. 
                         Thatís why I brought you along.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Iím working on it. I think the power 
                         relay was overloaded. I may be able 
                         to reroute the circuit to the control 
                         interface ... (She looks up and sees 
                         Jack staring at her.) What?
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Itís just a little weird heariní that 
                         kind of stuff come out of someone so 
                         ...
 
               (Sam turns and stares at him defensively.)

                                     CARTER
                         So what?

                                     OíNEILL
                         ... hot.

               (Sam coughs.)

                                     CARTER
                         Really?

                                     OíNEILL
                         Yeah.

                                     CARTER
                         Wow. Um, itís just you ... youíre not 
                         the kind of guy that I usually attract.
 
                         
                                     OíNEILL
                         No?

                                     CARTER
                         No. Huh. God. Wow! This is kinda awkward.
 
                         
                                     OíNEILL
                         Yeah, itís gettiní there.

                                     CARTER
                         Iím kind of attracted to ... Daniel.
 
                         
               (Jack stares at her for a moment in disbelief.)

                                     OíNEILL
                         What?! (Sam shrugs. Jack walks closer 
                         to her.) Really?!
 
                                     CARTER
                         Sorry.

                                     OíNEILL
                         No, thatís OK, n-no problem there, I, 
                         itís just, you know ... first impressions, 
                         I kinda thought he was ... (He gestures 
                         vaguely as Sam raises her eyebrows at 
                         him.) Never mind.
 
               (Sam nods. Jack blows out a breath and turns away from her. Sam 
               turns back to her work, wincing.)
 
               
               LATER. From behind a sand dune near the ship, Jack watches through 
               binoculars as a Jaffa patrol approaches. He activates his radio.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Carter. Howís it goiní in there?

               (Sam, still working inside the ship, scrabbles for her radio.)
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Uh, I think Iím almost there.

                                     OíNEILL
                         Thatís good. Weíre about to have some 
                         company. (He runs back to the ship and 
                         closes the rear door.) We have a patrol 
                         on its way here. (He gets into the pilotís 
                         seat.)
 
                                     CARTER
                         Try it.

               (Jack puts his hands on the controls and they light up. He concentrates, 
               then looks round.)
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Nothingís happening.

               (Sam turns her attention back to the panel above her head.)
 
               
               
               KATEPíS TENT. As Daniel, Tealíc and Katep continue to study the 
               map, Jackís voice comes over the radio.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Hey, guys, weíve got a little problem 
                         here.
 
               
               TIME SHIP. Sam is still tinkering with the panel.

                                     OíNEILL
                         Carter, forget it. Iím just gonna take 
                         off.
 
               (Nearby, we see the Jaffa patrol walking between two sand dunes. 
               In moments they will be able to see the ship. Inside, Jack tries 
               to get the ship to take off but nothing happens. He slaps the 
               side of the control console.)
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Címon! Now thatís not workiní.

                                     CARTER
                         Oh boy! (She reaches for the panel again 
                         and makes an adjustment.) Try the cloak 
                         now.
 
               (Jack closes his eyes and concentrates. Just as the patrol rounds 
               the sand dune, the ship cloaks.)
 
                                     CARTER
                         Did it work? (She comes to the front 
                         of the ship and she and Jack look out 
                         of the windscreen as the patrol comes 
                         into view. They show no reaction.)
 
                         
                                     OíNEILL
                         Apparently.

               (Just then, something in the console groans as it shuts off. 
               Outside, the ship decloaks. The Jaffa run towards the ship and 
               surround it. Three Jaffa come to the front of the ship, look 
               in at Jack and Sam and aim their staff weapons.)
 
                                     JAFFA
                         Shakína kree!

                                     OíNEILL
                         What?

               (The Jaffa open fire. Although the staff blasts do not penetrate 
               the windscreen, other Jaffa around the ship are also firing and 
               panels start to short out. Jack jumps out of the pilotís seat 
               and shoves Sam towards the rear of the ship.)
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Go, go, go, go! (He closes the door 
                         between the front and rear of the ship 
                         and pushes Sam down onto her knees behind 
                         the time device before ducking down 
                         himself.) Get down! (Panels continue 
                         to short out as the Jaffa keep firing.) 
                         Woah!
 
                                     CARTER
                         This could be a problem.

                                     OíNEILL
                         You think?!

                                     CARTER
                         If they penetrate the hull and hit the 
                         engines, the energy blasts could feed 
                         back into the power ...
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Carter!

                                     CARTER
                         We could explode!

               (Jack activates his radio.)

                                     OíNEILL
                         Daniel, Tealíc.

                                     DANIEL
                         Weíre almost there!

               
               NEARBY. Daniel and Tealíc can hear the shooting. They duck down 
               behind a sand dune and watch as the Jaffa continue to fire at 
               the ship.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, this doesnít look good.

                                     TEALíC
                         Indeed.

                                     DANIEL
                         Though it is quite ironic. This whole 
                         thing started because Sam didnít want 
                         to take the Jumper back from a Jaffa 
                         patrol.
 
               
               TIME SHIP. Still hiding behind the time device, Sam stares at 
               Jack as the panels continue sparking and exploding.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Look, if we donít make it ... (She takes 
                         his head in her hands and kisses him. 
                         Once she has ended the kiss, Jack stares 
                         at her.)
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Wait a minute! You said you liked Daniel!
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         I lied. I just wanted to get to know 
                         you better. You see, usually Iím a very 
                         cautious person and I tend to think 
                         things ...
 
               (Jack grabs her head and kisses her. Explosions go off all around 
               them.)
 
               
               (Outside the ship, the Jaffa stop firing as Tealíc calls out 
               to them.)
 
                                     TEALíC
                         Jaffa! (He and Daniel walk into the 
                         open. Tealíc holds his arms wide to 
                         show that he is not going to shoot.) 
                         Hear me! Ra is not a god! You can live 
                         free!
 
               (The Jaffa patrol leader raises his staff weapon and points it 
               at Tealíc.)
 
                                     JAFFA
                         Naíkek, sholíva!

                                     DANIEL
                         I donít think he bought it.

               (Inside the ship, Jack and Sam are still kissing but Jack opens 
               his eyes and then breaks the kiss when he realises that the firing 
               has stopped. Outside, Tealíc tries again.)
 
                                     TEALíC
                         Relinquish your weapons and surrender!
 
                         
                                     JAFFA
                         Kelítek trey! Lo tínak!

                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, I thought youíd say that.

                                     TEALíC
                         Shalítek!

               (From behind a high sand dune nearby, Katep appears. He cries 
               out and other Egyptians appear behind him. The Jaffa turn and 
               stare as, all around them, hundreds of Egyptians appear, brandishing 
               staff weapons and zat guns. All of them cry out fiercely. Daniel 
               takes a P90 from his robe and aims it at the Jaffa. The Jaffa 
               drop their staff weapons. Daniel activates his radio.)
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Sam, Jack - itís all clear. You can 
                         come out now.
 
               (Inside the ship, Jack and Sam are gazing at each other.)

                                     OíNEILL
                         In a minute.

               (Daniel and Tealíc look at each other, puzzled. Inside, Jack 
               takes hold of Samís head and starts to kiss her again. They tumble 
               to the floor, out of view of the camera. Above them, the time 
               device shorts out.)
 
                                     CARTER
                         I can fix that.

               
               SGC. In Samís lab, General Jack OíNeill, Lieutenant Colonel Samantha 
               Carter, Doctor Daniel Jackson and Tealíc (with hair) are watching 
               a screen showing the video recording from five thousand years 
               ago. Jack is sitting at the desk while the others stand behind 
               him. Next to Jack, nestled inside a wooden box on top of a lot 
               of padding, is a glowing ZPM. On the desk next to the box is 
               a half-eaten donut on a paper napkin.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Uh, Jack, you should say something here.
 
                         
                                     OíNEILL
                         Um, college football is played on Saturdays; 
                         pro on Sundays; and there are no fish 
                         in my pond ... at all ... where I fish. 
                         (He turns to the other two.) Uh, I think 
                         that covers it for me.
 
               (In the lab, Daniel turns the video off. Sam looks at Jack.)
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Is that correct?

                                     OíNEILL
                         If it is, we donít do anything?

                                     CARTER
                         Apparently nothing we did affected the 
                         timeline.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         But we didnít do anything.

                                     CARTER
                         Not yet. Apparently we were going to, 
                         two weeks from now, but now we donít 
                         have to.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Excellent! (Daniel and Tealíc nod to 
                         each other and walk away.) Thatís it! 
                         I like it!
 
               (Sam reaches for the ZPM box.)

                                     CARTER
                         OK, Iím gonna get this up to the lab 
                         for analysis.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         No! Iíll take it. (He picks up the box.) 
                         Thereís a whole room full of geeks up 
                         there just dyiní to get their hands 
                         on this. Youíve got packiní to do! (He 
                         walks away as Sam smiles.)
 
               
               MINNESOTA. Jackís cabin. A fishing line arcs out into the water. 
               The camera lifts up from the water and we see that Jack and Sam 
               are sitting side by side on the pier, fishing.
 
                                     CARTER
                         This is great.

                                     OíNEILL
                         I told ya!

                                     CARTER
                         I canít believe we didnít do it years 
                         ago.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Yes, well, letís not dwell.

               (Sam giggles as she looks at him. Behind them, Daniel and Tealíc 
               arrive, carrying a cooler box between them and each holding a 
               folding chair in their free hand. Out in the pond, a fish jumps 
               out of the water. Sam looks round at Jack.)
 
                                     CARTER
                         Didnít that tape say there were no fish 
                         in your pond?
 
               (Jack looks at her.)

                                     OíNEILL
                         Close enough.

               (Sam nods. The camera pulls back as Daniel and Tealíc unfold 
               their chairs. Tealíc sits down, and Daniel walks onto the pier 
               to join the other two.)
 
               
               THE END
