                            Robert C. Cooper & Damian Kindler




               The team are offworld. They are looking down on some Jaffa sending 
               soemthing through the stargate
 
               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         What's in the fancy box?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         It is Naquadah. Raw Naquadah is highly 
                         valued among the Goa'uld.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         SG3 brought back a small amount of the 
                         element back last year. We could really 
                         use some sir.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Well, maybe there's more. Whoa.

               
               
               
               Some Jaffa walk down a pathway. A woman is with them

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Look.

               
               
               
               The woman walks away on her own and Daniel follows her

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         I wish he'd stop doing that.

               
               
               
               She stands on the edge of a cliff

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         She's going to jump.

               
               
               
               Daniel grabs her

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Daniel!

               
               
               
               
               
               Shyla screams and Jaffa come running

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         No, wait. Please

               
                                     JAFFA
                         Stay away from the princess.

               
               
               
               Sam and Jack point there guns at the Jaffa

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         It's okay.

               
                                     SAM
                         Colonel?

               
                                     SHYLA
                         Tell them to lower their weapons. They 
                         will kill him.
 
               
               
               
               Titles

               
               The team are taken inside and are lined up in front of Shyla 
               and her father, the King, Pyrus
 
               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         What were you thinking?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I thought she'd be grateful.

               
                                     JACK
                         She was trying to kill herself!

               
                                     JAFFA
                         On your knees.

               
                                     JACK
                         No, actually I've got this cartilage 
                         problem, little ACL thing.
 
               
               
               
               He is hit on the back of the legs

               
               
               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah, that helps.

               
                                     SHYLA
                         My Father, Pyrus the God slayer and 
                         ruler of this planet wishes to know 
                         who you are.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         We're explorers. Peaceful explorers.
 
                         
               
                                     PYRUS
                         You attacked my daughter

               
                                     DANIEL
                         No. Tell him.

               
                                     PYRUS
                         Only one of you is Jaffa.Who sent you? 
                         Where are you from?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         We're from a planet called earth.

               
                                     PYRUS
                         What Goa'uld rules there?

               
                                     JACK
                         None

               
                                     PYRUS
                         Liar. Thieves. You will tell me the 
                         truth or you will die. Put them in the 
                         mines.
 
               
                                     SHYLA
                         Father!

               
               
               
               The team are dragged out of the room

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         No wait! We're not thieves. Wait! Please!
 
                         
               
               
               
               
               
               They are in the mine, using pick axes, to break the rock

               
               
               
                                     SAM
                         Colonel. He isn't a Goa'uld. I don't 
                         think these are real Jaffa either.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         How do you know?

               
                                     SAM
                         First clue was his voice.

               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah, I noticed that too.

               
                                     SAM
                         Sir, I can't really explain it but when 
                         he grabbed me I just knew. I felt it. 
                         Or, to be more accurate, I didn't feel 
                         it. Sir, I think it has something to 
                         do with the Goa'uld that invaded me. 
                         Lately, I get this weird feeling when 
                         I'm near Teal'c.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Hey, who doesn't?

               
                                     SAM
                         No, I can sense the presence of a Goa'uld 
                         now. I didn't get that feeling when 
                         he grabbed me.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I agree with Captain Carter. The ruler 
                         here is not a Goa'uld.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Alright, Let's assume you both are right. 
                         How does that help us?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         I'm not sure

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Look, I'm really sorry you guys. This 
                         is totally my fault. A Jaffa walks up 
                         to SG-1
 
               
                                     JAFFA
                         You will meet your quota for the day 
                         or you will not eat.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         You know, I've seen an awful lot of 
                         union violations around here. I should 
                         probably speak to your supervisor.
 
                         
               
               
               
               Jack is hit

               
               
               
                                     JAFFA
                         You will work.

               
                                     JACK
                         Hi ho hi ho, back to work.

               
               
               
               Later

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I can't move anymore. A horn sounds 
                         and prisoners start to walk through 
                         in a line
 
               
                                     JAFFA
                         Put down your tools. How does your leg 
                         feel now?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Oh, much better thanks.

               
               
               
               Jack hit's him and Teal'c throws his pick axe at another guard.
 
               
               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Let's go. Let's go.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         This way.

               
                                     JACK
                         Let's go Daniel!

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I'm coming!

               
               
               
               Jaffa begin firing at the team, as they escape. A blast hit's 
               some rocks, which fall, landing on Daniel
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Daniel! God.

               
                                     SAM
                         He's alive!

               
                                     JACK
                         Carter, Teal'c Take off.

               
                                     SAM
                         Sir?

               
                                     JACK
                         Go!

               
               
               
               There's nowhere for them to go, as more Jaffa appear.

               
               
               
               Pyrus and Shyla talk, up in the throne room

               
               
               
                                     PYRUS
                         Foolish Child. They must have been sent 
                         by some distant evil God. Then they 
                         are here to raid our mine. And we can 
                         spare none of our Naquadah, it grows 
                         more scares by the day.
 
               
                                     SHYLA
                         I know. I will not put our world in 
                         jeopardy. When you are gone I will have 
                         to make these kinds of choices all the 
                         time. Please, believe in me.
 
               
               
               
               Pyrus leaves and a sarcophagus is opened. Daniel is inside

               
               
               
                                     SHYLA
                         Do you feel better?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         What's going on?

               
                                     SHYLA
                         You tried to escape. You were badly 
                         wounded.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         My friends?

               
                                     SHYLA
                         They were recaptured. By what name are 
                         you called?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Daniel Jackson.

               
                                     SHYLA
                         May I help you out Daniel Jackson?
 
                         
               
               
               
               She helps him out

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Thank you. Why am I wearing this?

               
                                     SHYLA
                         I took the liberty of providing you 
                         with royal robes. You may call me Shyla. 
                         In return for saving your life, please 
                         do not try to escape again. I have taken 
                         personal responsibility for you.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Okay.

               
                                     SHYLA
                         It would also be rude of you to try 
                         and hurt me in any way.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         You do realize it's also kind of rude 
                         to kidnap people and chain them up in 
                         a mine.
 
               
                                     SHYLA
                         Please forgive me for not telling my 
                         father the truth about what happened 
                         by the cliff.He would not understand.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Okay. So, you're not Goa'ulds but you're 
                         running a Naquadah mine and you've got 
                         yourselves a Goa'uld sarcophagus.
 
                         
               
                                     SHYLA
                         You know of the sarcophagus?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, I've used one before. Couple of 
                         times too many if you ask me.
 
               
                                     SHYLA
                         Really?

               
               
               
               Daniel points towards his eyes

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         My umm.

               
                                     SHYLA
                         Oh, you want your glass circles. I'm 
                         afraid they were broken.
 
               
               
               
               She gives him his glasses. One of the lens' is cracked

               
               
               
                                     SHYLA
                         I just know I've done the right thing. 
                         Come! I must show you something
 
               
               
               
               Back in the mines

               
               
               
                                     SAM
                         He needed medical attention.

               
                                     JACK
                         I know.

               
                                     SAM
                         It wasn't your fault sir. We had to 
                         take the opportunity when we did.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         I know that too.

               
               
               
               A boy gives Jack some water

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         I've had worse.

               
               
               
               Daniel and Shyla are walking through the tree's

               
               
               
                                     SHYLA
                         Isn't this splendid?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Why are we here?

               
                                     SHYLA
                         I know you must've seen much in your 
                         travels, but surely you've never seen 
                         anything quite so beautiful. We call 
                         them trees.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Ah! So do we.

               
                                     SHYLA
                         So you've seen them before, on other 
                         worlds?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, I have

               
                                     SHYLA
                         I'm a fool aren't I? I mean surely you've 
                         seen more incredible things then I can 
                         imagine. Please, tell me about them.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Look, I would really like to tell you 
                         everything you want to know,but my friends.
 
                         
               
                                     SHYLA
                         My father still believes you and your 
                         friends have a nefarious purpose here.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         But you don't.

               
                                     SHYLA
                         We will convince him that you are decent 
                         honest people who will bring no harm 
                         to our kingdom.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I don't suppose we could go talk to 
                         your father now?
 
               
                                     SHYLA
                         He is not well now.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I don't want to spoil this little rapport 
                         we seem to have going here....
 
               
                                     SHYLA
                         That sounds almost romantic.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Oh boy, ok, here's the thing. I am very 
                         grateful to you that you saved my life 
                         and that you want to help me free my 
                         friends, but I'm sensing that you did 
                         it because your uh...
 
               
                                     SHYLA
                         Because you're my destiny.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Wha....What?

               
                                     SHYLA
                         Before she died, my mother used to come 
                         out here and take long walks at night. 
                         You can see every star in the sky through 
                         the treetops.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         No, see, about the destiny thing?

               
                                     SHYLA
                         She used to tell me how a great man 
                         would come from beyond the sun, just 
                         for me.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Oh boy.

               
                                     SHYLA
                         I had come to believe my mother was 
                         wrong. That my true love would never 
                         come. I stood on that cliff and I wished 
                         one last time. At exactly the right 
                         moment you were there to save me, Daniel 
                         Jackson. You cannot deny that is fate.
 
                         
               
               
               
               Daniel goes into the mines. He is dressed in royal robes and 
               seems to have an air of arrogance about him
 
               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Hi guys.

               
                                     SAM
                         Daniel!

               
                                     JACK
                         Well. It's surprisingly difficult to 
                         kill you, isn't it?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         We are pleased to see you Daniel Jackson
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         What happened?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Sam was right. Pyrus isn't a Goa'uld.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         What's with the dress?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Oh! They're royal robes. Long story 
                         short, they have a sarcophagus. The 
                         princess put me in it and saved my life 
                         because she has a crush on me.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         A crush?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah. Actually, she thinks I'm her destiny, 
                         the whole saving her life thing. I guess 
                         she was grateful after all.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Well good job. Now how about getting 
                         the goons to unlock us and get us the 
                         heck out of here?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Uh yeah, not yet.

               
                                     JACK
                         I'm sorry?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well it's kind of a sensitive situation. 
                         Pyrus hasn't exactly agreed to let you 
                         go yet. But I'm working on it. I'm trying 
                         to gain his trust. Yeah, I know. This 
                         is really.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Weird?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Look, I just wanted to let you guys 
                         know I was okay. And I will talk to 
                         Pyrus tonight at dinner.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         You get dinner?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, some feast in my honour. Or something.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Feast? There's a feast?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Just trust me. Okay. I just, I need 
                         more time.
 
               
               
               
               Daniel leaves

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Glad you're okay!

               
               
               
               Later, Daniel is sat at a table on his own

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Umm, just me?

               
               
               
               Shyla and Pyrus enter the room

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Hello, I'm Daniel Jackson.

               
                                     PYRUS
                         Hmm.

               
                                     SHYLA
                         My father is pleased that you are so 
                         honored to dine in the presence of his 
                         greatness.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Exactly.

               
                                     SHYLA
                         If you are lucky he will tell you the 
                         story of how he became the God slayer.
 
                         
               
                                     PYRUS
                         I killed Goa'uld who ruled here.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         And how long ago was that.

               
                                     PYRUS
                         700 years.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         700 years? But you're a, of course the 
                         sarcophagus. But I had no idea it could 
                         sustain human life so long. Does that 
                         mean that you are.
 
               
                                     SHYLA
                         No, I'm very young by comparison. I 
                         have not needed it to extend my life.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         So the people continue to worship your 
                         father because he's lived so long
 
                         
               
                                     SHYLA
                         They worship him because he liberated 
                         them from the evil God.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Then why does he keep them working in 
                         the mines.
 
               
                                     SHYLA
                         So the other distant evil Gods won't 
                         come.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         So this, this is a masquerade. You're 
                         sending Naquadah through the Stargate 
                         because that's what the Goa'uld used 
                         to do. Well no wonder you're so paranoid 
                         about strangers. You're afraid of being 
                         found out.
 
               
               
               
               Pyrus stands up

               
               
               
                                     PYRUS
                         I must sleep.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Wait!about my friends?

               
                                     PYRUS
                         Kill them.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         What? No.

               
                                     SHYLA
                         Father, you said their punishment for 
                         trying to escape would be to work in 
                         the mines, without rest for as long 
                         as they live, as an example to the other 
                         workers.
 
               
                                     PYRUS
                         I did?

               
                                     SHYLA
                         Yes.

               
               
               
               Pryus and Shyla leave the room

               
               Later, Shyla and Daniel are in the throne room

               
               
               
                                     SHYLA
                         Do not worry about your friends. I have 
                         instructed the guards to treat them 
                         well.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I'm sorry, this is unacceptable. I cannot 
                         be up here while they are down there.
 
                         
               
                                     SHYLA
                         We will change my father's mind about 
                         them.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I don't think you're understanding what 
                         they mean to me.
 
               
                                     SHYLA
                         It might just take some time

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Or maybe you do. The longer it takes 
                         to free them, the more time we have 
                         together. Right?
 
               
                                     SHYLA
                         I admit, that is what I would like.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Then release my friends. I won't leave. 
                         I'll, I'll stay and get to know you 
                         better. I promise.
 
               
                                     SHYLA
                         Then you do feel as I do.

               
               
               
               She kisses him

               
               
               
                                     SHYLA
                         Should I not have done that?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         No, it's ok, it's just that....

               
                                     SHYLA
                         Maybe you are still not fully recovered.
 
                         
               
               
               
               She opens the sarcophagus

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I really don't think that is necessary. 
                         Uhh.I'm okay.
 
               
                                     SHYLA
                         But you'll feel so much better

               
                                     DANIEL
                         It's .... please.

               
                                     SHYLA
                         For me? You will feel better then you 
                         have ever felt. Trust me and I will 
                         trust you. I promise.
 
               
               
               
               Daniel gets into the sarcophagus

               
               Later. Control Room

                                     DANIEL
                         Mission status remains the same. Need 
                         more time to situation diplomatically.

                         Jackson out.
 
               
               
               
               The rest of the team are still suffering in the mines. Daniel 
               goes to see him. He has changed dramatically
 
               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         What the hell is going on?

               
                                     SAM
                         It's been days since we heard from you.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Oh, yeah yeah yeah. Oh sorry.Yeah, I'm 
                         still working on getting you guys out. 
                         Oh in the meantime I've discovered something 
                         incredible.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         You do know we're dying down here don't 
                         you?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I've taken the opportunity to do a little 
                         research on the sarcophagus. It's amazing 
                         what it does to you if use it when you 
                         are already healthy.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Is that such a good idea?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, I can't get Shyla to trust me 
                         if I don't show that I trust her.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Oh, Shyla is it now. First name basis. 
                         Shyla
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         And I've used it before without any 
                         side effects. And look! No glasses!
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         That looks like a side effect to me.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Daniel, get us out of here.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Oh, yeah yeah yeah . Yeah.I'm working 
                         on it. I just need a little more time. 
                         OH, I sent General Hammond another message. 
                         Hopefully he won't order an all out 
                         attack. Look, if we do this right we'll 
                         have access to all the Naquadah and 
                         the sarcophagus.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         How many times have you used it?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I don't know nine or ten. Oh Sam, every 
                         thing is so clear. I feel like I could 
                         do anything.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         One thing. You only have to do one thing! 
                         And if you can't handle that we're gonna 
                         break out of here without you.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         She wants me to marry her.

               
                                     JACK
                         What? Alright, look....

               
                                     DANIEL
                         No, you look, Jack! I have got everything 
                         under control, ok? God, you never show 
                         me any respect! Your way didn't work. 
                         Now I'm handling it. All you guys have 
                         to do is hang in there!
 
               
               
               
               Daniel and Shyla are in the throne room

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         How is he?

               
                                     SHYLA
                         The sarcophagus does not make him better 
                         the way it used to. Soon it will be 
                         time for me to become queen.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Will that be so bad?

               
                                     SHYLA
                         You do not approve of my father's ways.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I can help you make mining much easier 
                         and we can defend you from the Goa'uld, 
                         if you trust me.
 
               
                                     SHYLA
                         Even after I used your friends to keep 
                         you close to me.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Oh yeah. I don't think you meant any 
                         harm.
 
               
                                     SHYLA
                         Then you will stay? Even after they 
                         are free?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I have never felt better anywhere in 
                         my life. I've always felt out of place 
                         on my planet. I wanted to make a difference. 
                         There is still so much you don't know 
                         about me.
 
               
                                     SHYLA
                         I know all I need to. We can change 
                         things here.together.
 
               
               
               
               The mines

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Water? Hey.

               
                                     SAM
                         We don't use the sarcophagus!

               
                                     JACK
                         What?

               
                                     SAM
                         Whoa. Oh that was weird. I was having 
                         a vision or something. I kept seeing 
                         the memory of Jolinar. The resistance, 
                         the Tok'ra, they don't use the sarcophagus. 
                         It does bad things to you. It changes 
                         your mind. It takes something from you. 
                         I kept hearing. TEAL'C what is Kalach?
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         It is Goa'uld. It means one's soul.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Sir, we have to stop Daniel .

               
               
               
               Jack is dragged into the throne room. Daniel is sat on the throne
 
               
               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         The man who would be king.

               
               
               
               The Jaffa hits him on the back of the legs

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Hi Jack! Hi Jack!

               
               
               
               He snaps his fingers and the Jaffa leave

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         We're losing the battle down there you 
                         know. Carter has started having Goa'uld 
                         flashbacks. Says if you keep using the 
                         sarcophagus, you're going to go dark 
                         side on us.If you haven't already.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well don't worry a bit. We're getting 
                         out of here tomorrow.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         What?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I agreed to marry her.

               
                                     JACK
                         You did?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         But....

               
               
               
               He helps Jack off the floor

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I said I had to go home and straighten 
                         a few things out first. And you guys 
                         are coming with me.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         And she trusts you?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         She.....Loves me

               
               
               
               Shyla helps Pyrus into the sarcophagus

               
               
               
                                     PYRUS
                         Love has blinded you.

               
                                     SHYLA
                         They are good people. We have done a 
                         grave injustice to them.
 
               
                                     PYRUS
                         I pray that you are right.

               
                                     SHYLA
                         I must let Daniel go. The choice to 
                         return must be his. But, he will come 
                         back to me. He can't live without me 
                         anymore.
 
               
               
               
               The team prepare to go through the gate

               
               
               
                                     SHYLA
                         He was once the greatest of men. But, 
                         he can rule no longer. He lives only 
                         to see me married. I extend the sincerest 
                         apologizes for the hardship done to 
                         you and offer the friendship of our 
                         world.
 
               
                                     JACK

                         always be welcome here and will be treated

                         I'll be back. Soon.

                         We had a nice time, Sir. Carter picked 
                         up some Naquada. Teal'c made some new 
                         friends as usual.DANIEL got engaged. 
                         And, um, I'm gonna hit the showers.

               Daniel and Sam are sitting on beds

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         This is stupid.

               
                                     SAM
                         Doctor Fraiser says your systems are 
                         all out of whack.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well I feel fine. God I need to get 
                         out of here or I'm gonna go nuts.
 
                         
               
               
               
               Sam's lab.

               
               Daniel is pacing

               
               
               
                                     SAM
                         You're going to wear a hole in the floor.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I can't get her out of my head Sam. 
                         I think I've made a big mistake.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         You're not serious.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I am.

               
                                     SAM
                         You have a wife.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Had. Had a wife. Come on, seriously. 
                         How long am I supposed to wait? Even 
                         if I find Sha're one day, what are the 
                         chances she'll ever be the same again?
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Look, your endorphin level was through 
                         the roof when we came back. And now 
                         you're coming down off of it. The effects 
                         of the sarcophagus are like a narcotic 
                         Daniel.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, that makes you smarter, stronger, 
                         you live for hundreds of years, feel 
                         great. What the hell is so wrong with 
                         it?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         I think it's partly what makes the Goa'uld 
                         as bad as they are.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         How?

               
                                     SAM
                         Who knows. It's Goa'uld technology Daniel. 
                         Maybe it's healing affects alter your 
                         brain chemistry. Increased adrenaline, 
                         the hormones that make you more aggressive 
                         and irrational. PYRUS probably used 
                         to be a decent man. Look at yourself. 
                         It's like you need a fix. You've only 
                         used it a few times and already it's 
                         changed you.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         We can't just leave it there. We have 
                         to study it.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         We can't go back either.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well I'm going.

               
                                     SAM
                         She used us to get you addicted.

               
               
               
               Daniel hit's the table with his fist

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         You've never really known what love 
                         is have you?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         See, the Daniel I know would never have 
                         said that.
 
               
               
               
               He knocks over some bottles and leaves the room

               
               Hammonds office. He's talking to Jack and Sam

               
               
               
               
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         What are you saying Captain?

               
                                     SAM
                         Sir I think he needs to be confined. 
                         He is clearly addicted to the affects.
 
                         
               
               
               
               Daniel enters and put's some papers on the desk

               
               
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         What's this?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         It's my resignation.

               
                                     JACK
                         Oh please.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         General, I respectfully request permission 
                         to go through the gate to P3R-636
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Request denied!

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I wasn't asking you!

               
               
               
               He collapses

               
               
               
                                     SAM
                         Daniel?

               
               
               
               Sam rushes to him. Jack doesn't move

               
               
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Doctor Jackson?

               
                                     SAM
                         He's unconscious.

               
               
               
               Hammond picks up the phone

               
               
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         This is General Hammond. Code red medical 
                         emergency in my office.
 
               
               
               
               Daniel is in the infirmary

               
               
               
                                     JANET
                         I gave him a sedative. His test results 
                         are all over the place. Liver function, 
                         Kidney function, endorphins, electrolytes, 
                         levels indicated muscle deterioration.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Alright alright, whatever. What's going 
                         on with him?
 
               
                                     JANET
                         I have no idea. The most I can do is 
                         try to treat the symptoms. But the bottom 
                         line is that he seems to be going through 
                         some massive physical withdrawal.
 
                         
               
               
               
               Daniel wakes up and tries to get off the bed

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I have to go back! You're killing me!
 
                         
               
               
               
               He tries to pull out his iv. Teal'c runs over, but Daniel just 
               throws him
 
               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Stop killing me!

               
               
               
               Jack sits on him

               
               
               
                                     JANET
                         Hold him down!

               
               
               
               She injects him with something

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Ahh..

               
               
               
               He finally sleeps

               
               
               
                                     JANET
                         It's like all of his cells have lost 
                         the ability to function properly and 
                         it's getting worse by the hour.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         There is nothing you can do?

               
                                     JANET
                         I'm trying.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         The sarcophagus will keep Daniel Jackson 
                         alive.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         No, we can't let him go back. That thing 
                         will just screw him up permanently and 
                         we'll lose him anyway. The memories 
                         that Jolinar left in my mind told me 
                         that the sarcophagus will take away 
                         everything that Daniel is.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         What choice do we have?

                         We wait it out. Just a little longer.
 
                         
               
               
               
               Daniel is strapped on a bed. Jack is watching him, on a monitor. 
               Janet walks in
 
               
               
               
                                     JANET
                         Hey.

               
                                     JACK
                         How's he doing?

               
                                     JANET
                         Well I can't say for sure but I think 
                         maybe the worst is over. His blood work 
                         in improving, body temperature is coming 
                         down, pulse is normal, BP 120/80.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         So we made the right call.

               
                                     JANET
                         His cellular function is starting to 
                         take back control. The next few hours 
                         should tell. Time for another dose of 
                         sedative.
 
               
               
               
               She leaves the room

               
               
               
               
               
               Janet goes to Daniel's bedside.

               
               
               
                                     JANET
                         Okay DANIEL.

               
               
               
               She shines a penlight in his eyes. He suddenly grabs her

               
               
               
                                     JANET
                         Ahh!

               
               
               The guard runs in

               
               
               
                                     GUARD
                         Stand down!

               
               
               
               Daniel punches him continuously. Jack looks back to the monitor 
               and see's that Daniel is no longer on the bed. He rushes in and 
               finds Janet
 
               
               
               
                                     JANET
                         I'm okay. Go.

               
               
               
               He hits the alarm button and goes after Daniel. He follows him 
               into a storage room. Daniel shoots out the light and Jack dives 
               for cover
 
               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Geez! Daniel! Are you trying to kill 
                         me?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         You're trying to kill me.

               
                                     JACK
                         There'll be guards here in thirty seconds.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I'm going back.

               
                                     JACK
                         You don't have to! Fraiser says you're 
                         getting better.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         You're lying!

               
                                     JACK
                         Why would I do that?!

               
               
               
               Daniel grabs him and they fight. Knocking down shelving units. 
               Daniel points the gun at Jack
 
               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Daniel! God! What are you going to do, 
                         Daniel ? Do you want to kill me? Oh 
                         God, look at you. I know what this is. 
                         I know what it's like. You can get through 
                         it.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         No.

               
               
               
               Daniel begins to sob. Jack crawls over and pulls him into a big 
               hug. They sit there rocking together, on the floor
 
               
               
               
               
               
               Hammonds Office

               
               
               
                                     SAM
                         Probe's data indicates P3H - 826 is 
                         a viable next mission for SG-1 sir.
 
                         
               
               
               
               Daniel enters the room

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I have another suggestion. I think we 
                         should go back to P3R - 636. And, before 
                         you say anything, just hear me out. 
                         There are thousands of innocent human 
                         beings there who we could free from 
                         slavery.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Shyla can not free her world without 
                         putting her people at great risk.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, we have to offer her alternatives, 
                         new ways to mine the Naquadah. I mean, 
                         we don't even know that Goa'uld will 
                         notice if the shipments stop.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Our preliminary tests do indicate potentially 
                         countless military and scientific applications 
                         for the raw ore. Might be a compelling 
                         reason to try sir.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Try what? Last time you were captured 
                         and enslaved in the that mine.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Look, you want access to the mine but 
                         you don't want to send troops in. I'm 
                         offering you a shot at a diplomatic 
                         solution. Please, Jack, we need to take 
                         the chance.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         We can back him up sir. I'd like DANIEL 
                         back on the team.
 
               
               
               
               Shyla is standing near the sarcophagus, crying.

               
               
               
                                     SHYLA
                         I did not believe you would ever return.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I'm sorry.about your father.about everything.
 
                         
               
                                     SHYLA
                         The sarcophagus could not help him anymore.You 
                         never did love me did you?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I wouldn't be here if I didn't care.
 
                         
               
                                     SHYLA
                         I don't deserve to live after what I've 
                         done to you.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yes you do. Your people need you. You 
                         may still be able to lead them without 
                         turning into what your father became.
 
                         
               
                                     SHYLA
                         How?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         You can't use this anymore. It's going 
                         to be bad. Trust me. But you don't have 
                         to do this alone.
 
               
               
               
               She destroyes the sarcophagus with the staff weapon. Daniel hugs 
               her
 
               
               THE END
