                                      STARGATE SG1

                                      Episode 615

                                    "PARADISE LOST"

                                           By

                                    Robert C. Cooper




               BRIEFING ROOM

               
               Jack, Sam, Tealíc and Jonas are sat around the table.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Did he say how he came across this key?
 
                         
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         No.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         You were correct when you said itís 
                         doubtful the Pentagon would authorise 
                         Colonel Maybourneís presence on an offworld 
                         mission.
 
               
                                     TEALíC
                         Should we not at least explore the planet 
                         to which he has provided the address?
 
                         
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         He did risk his butt just to make the 
                         proposition.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Maybe we can get through the door without 
                         him? If Maybourne thinks itís worth 
                         a pardon, whatís on the other side; 
                         it must be good.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Do it.

               
               PLANET

               
               We see what looks like a monastery on a mountain and a large 
               moon in the sky.
 
               
               SG1 enter the ruins and look around.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Nobody home.

               
               Jonas films a wall hanging.

               
                                     TEALíC
                         Are you able to translate any of this, 
                         Jonas Quinn?
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         Itís not Ancient but itís definitely 
                         a language belonging to one of the races 
                         of the ancient alliance.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Nox? Asgard?

               
                                     JONAS
                         Furlings.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Oh no, not those guys.

               
                                     JONAS
                         What?

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Oh I donít know, I just canít imagine 
                         cute little furry things making big 
                         powerful weapons, thatís all.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         I donít even know what they look like.
 
                         
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Furling. Sounds cute and fuzzy to me.
 
                         
               
                                     JONAS
                         This section says something like Ďonly 
                         the righteous may passí.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         This looks like where Maybourneís key 
                         would go. Iím getting energy readings. 
                         Thereís a power source in this arch. 
                         Here.
 
               
               Sam pulls a panel off the arch.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Sir? This is definitely something.
 
                         
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         What?

               
                                     CARTER
                         I donít know. I donít recognise the 
                         technology.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         But can you make it work?

               
               GATEROOM

               
               Jack comes through the Gate.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Well General, Maybourneís story checks 
                         out so far. Thereís a doorway there 
                         that Carter thinks may be a transporter 
                         but she canít get it to work without 
                         Maybourneís key.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         What do you recommend Colonel?

               
               ELEVATOR, SGC

               
               Maybourne comes out handcuffed.

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Jack.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Harry.

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Iím trusting you.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Turned yourself in. What happens from 
                         hereon out is up to you.
 
               
               They walk into the briefing room.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         You can remove the cuffs Airman.

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         General, nice to see you again.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Despite your prior transgressions youíve 
                         shown a willingness to help us out of 
                         some serious situations recently. And 
                         that is why the President is willing 
                         to proceed in this matter.
 
               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Youíre welcome.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Letís see what you brought.

               
               Maybourne unwraps the key. Jack picks it up.

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         When do we leave?

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         I leave right now. Weíll let you know 
                         how it turns out.
 
               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Jack. I thought I was pretty clear. 
                         I go with you or no deal.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Harry, youíre under arrest, Iíve got 
                         the stone and Iím walking out that door. 
                         Youíre not in a strong bargaining position.
 
                         
               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         The only way this mission will be successful 
                         is if Iím on it. That stone is useless 
                         without the combination.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Howís that?

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         It was originally found over 80 years 
                         ago in a Pharaohs tomb in Egypt. The 
                         stone was wrapped in a scroll with writing 
                         on it that no Earth linguist could decipher. 
                         I was recently able to get it translated 
                         though.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         By whom?

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         The scroll contained instructions for 
                         how to use the stone to access the power 
                         of the Gods. That information exists 
                         in one place. Right here. A dealís a 
                         deal. You want t o go through that door? 
                         Iím gonna be the one who opens it.
 
                         
               
               GATEROOM

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Thereís got to be something more going 
                         on here than heíll admit to.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Of that I have no doubt, Sir. But if 
                         heís not willing to tell us, we canít 
                         force him. Much as I like to try.
 
                         
               
               Maybourne walks in.

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Now this is more like it.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Shall we?

               
               They walk up the ramp and Harry stops.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Yes?

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         You know the real reason I wanna do 
                         this? Iíve never actually been through 
                         this thing before.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Really?

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         I ran the off world operation from Earth 
                         using a Goaíuld communicator.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Nervous?

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Me? Nah. Iím just taking a moment.
 
                         
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Done?

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Yeah.

               
               They walk through the Gate.

               
               PLANET

               
               We see the ruins again but the moon has disappeared.

               
               Jack and Harry walk into the ruins.

                                     CARTER
                         He finished cataloguing the writing 
                         and went to do a wider sweep of the 
                         surrounding area with Tealíc.
 
               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         He translated everything?

               
                                     CARTER
                         No. He still needs to get some reference 
                         from the SGC. Says itíll take a while.

                         Harry?

               
               Jack points to the arch.

               
               Harry goes over and puts the key in and turns it. Lights light 
               up but nothing happens.

                         What?

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Iím sure Iíve done it right.

                         Harry?

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         It shouldíve worked.

               
               Sam goes over.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Let me take a look.

               
               Maybourne grabs her zat and shoots her in the back. She collapses 
               and he shoots at Jack. Maybourne pulls the key off the wall and 
               the doorway opens. Jack gets up.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Harry!

               
               Jack jumps on Harry as he goes through the doorway and they both 
               disappear and the doorway closes.

               Jack lands on Harry and starts to rough him up.

                         You rotten, no good for nothing...

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Jack?

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         You son of a...

                         JACK!

               
               Jack looks up and they are in a field nowhere near their last 
               location.

                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Dammit Jack, whyíd you have to do that?
 
                         
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Whereís the zat?

                         I donít know, I donít have it.

               
               Jack raises his P90.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Where is it?

                         Itís not here. I guess it didnít come 
                         through with us.

                         Why not?

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Well, how should I know? Maybe the doorway 
                         filters out weapons?
 
               
               Jack just lifts his P90.

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Goaíuld weapons?

                         Now you listen to me. I want a straight 
                         answer from you.
 
               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Well since youíre here, I might as well 
                         just show you.

                         Iím getting nowhere here. Jonas, head 
                         back to the SGC, ask General Hammond 
                         to set up a UAV. If Colonel OíNeill 
                         has activated his tracking device, we 
                         should be able to pinpoint his location.

                         to send you back. I donít think anyoneís 
                         supposed to leave, thatís part of the

                         Maybourne, have you completely lost 
                         your mind because if youíre suffering 
                         Iíll gladly put you out of your misery.

                         Itís an alien utopia. According to the 
                         scroll itís supposed to be paradise.

                         What?

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         A long time ago, some people from an 
                         advanced alien society, well they chucked 
                         it all and formed this small, isolated 
                         utopian community. They sent out representatives 
                         to meet and evaluate people from all 
                         over the galaxy and offer them a chance 
                         to join them. The scroll and the stone 
                         were the invitation.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         And this has nothing to do with the 
                         weapons Simmons was after?
 
               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         I just figured it was my only way of 
                         getting through the Gate.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         You know Harry, itís not that I canít 
                         believe you lied to me again, itís that 
                         you lied to me again!
 
               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Oh come on Jack, no one would have let 
                         me through the Gate for this. Would 
                         you have even believed me?
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         And youíre sure this is all worth it?
 
                         
               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Couldnít be much worse than where Iíve 
                         been forced to hide out... lately. Theyíre 
                         closing in on me, itís only a matter 
                         of time. Besides, Iíve got nothing left 
                         on Earth anymore. The money I was supposed 
                         to get from selling the Russian symbiote 
                         to Adrian Conrad was my last shot at 
                         making a life on Earth. Do something 
                         good and it turned into a disaster.

                         I, when I could have a chance of retiring 
                         in paradise?

                                     CARTER
                         This is my fault, I allowed Colonel 
                         Maybourne to take my weapon.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Major, letís just focus on finding them 
                         right now.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Yes sir.

                         You are so lost.

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         No, Iím sure this is the right way.
 
                         
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Howís that?

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Itís in this valley. Itís strange, thereís 
                         supposed to be a greeting party.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         And you know, thatís all thatís strange 
                         about this.
 
               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Theyíre supposed to know when someone 
                         uses the doorway. I was expecting some 
                         sort of welcome.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         (Something) Leis?

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Well something.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Cabana boys? I tell you Maybourne, I 
                         donít hear any steel drummmms. How old 
                         was that invitation?
 
               
               They enter what looks like a camp thatís deserted.

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Thereís no one here.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         I noticed that.

               
               Jack picks up a circular book. He puts it down and walks to the 
               edge of the camp.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Harry?

               
               Harry runs over. There are skeletons.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         This in the brochure?

                         Iím working on it, Doctor. As you should 
                         be!

               Jack and Harry are sitting on a dock.

                         I guess I can see why youíd want to 
                         retire here. Given your choices.
 
               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Find anything that might be a doorway 
                         back?

                         No.

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         You gonna kill me?

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Iíll sleep on it.

               
               PARADISE

               
               Jack is filling up his canteen in the river.

               
               He then walks through a field, through a forest, across a waterfall.
 
               
               
               CAMP

               
               Maybourne is breaking wood. Jack walks up.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Well I donít think weíre walking out 
                         of here.
 
               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         No way of knowing how far we were transported. 
                         We could be on the other side of the 
                         planet.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Which is why we survive here until weíre 
                         rescued.
 
               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Until weíre rescued. Jack, this place 
                         is supposed to be a secret. The doorway 
                         was designed to keep it that way.
 
                         
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Of course, we have the only key known 
                         to man.
 
               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         The least you could have done was eat 
                         that before you got here.
 
               
               Jack is eating some kind of cookie or granola bar. He then throws 
               some to Harry.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Weíre gonna need food and drinkable 
                         water.

                         Iím not dead yet.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Itís early.

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Jack, theyíre never gonna find us.

                         access to a ship would be able to help

                         all spend the rest of our natural lives 
                         trying to figure out exactly how this 
                         thing works. Do you know what? Even 
                         if I could snap my fingers and turn 
                         it on right now, Iím beginning to doubt 
                         whether it would determine where it 
                         sent Colonel OíNeill. Iíd bet almost 
                         anything that the targeting data is 
                         in the artefact that Colonel Maybourne 
                         used to open that doorway.

                         What was that?

               
               Harry detonates it.

               
               He shrugs and wades in.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         That is just wrong on so many levels.
 
                         
               
               Harry throws a fish at the shore and nearly hits Jack.

               
               CAMP

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Donít ever do that again.

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Youíre saying you donít hear things?
 
                         
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         No.

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Last night, I swear I heard someone 
                         running around out here. Spent an hour 
                         wandering around trying to spot him.
 
                         
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Animals.

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         No tracks.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Youíre losing your mind.

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         You donít find things a little spooky 
                         around here?
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Made so only by your presence.

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         yeah well, Iím beginning to wonder if 
                         some of the Utopians might still be 
                         alive.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Thereís no evidence of that.

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Well maybe theyíre here in another way.
 
                         
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Al right, now you are getting spooky.
 
                         
               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Oh come on Jack, youíve seen stranger 
                         things. Other dimensions, planes of 
                         existence. You said it your self, this 
                         is an alien planet.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         So what do you want me to do?

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Give me your 9ml.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         No.

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Oh come on, youíve got the P90. You 
                         sleep with it beside you for Godís sake; 
                         I just want to be able to protect myself.
 
                         
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Forget it.

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Jack! I want that gun.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Forget it! You donít like it here, deal 
                         with it. Itís your own damn fault.
 
                         
               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         You wouldnít care if I died would you?
 
                         
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         What are you talking about?

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Some alien creature comes in and attacks 
                         me in the middle of the night, hauls 
                         me out while youíre sleeping.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         You and I are the only ones here. Trust 
                         me, the only thing you have to be afraid 
                         of around here is me.
 
               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Yeah.

               
               Harry goes into his sleeping area with his fish.

               
               PARADISE

               
               Jack comes out of his sleeping area and buries his ammunition. 
               We see that someone is watching him though.
 
               
               BRIEFING ROOM

               
               Sam, Tealíc, Jonas and Hammond are there.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Sir, a satellite capable of pinpointing 
                         Colonel OíNeillís tracking device would 
                         be able to cover a much greater range. 
                         The Tokíra could retrieve it later by 
                         ship when one became available so the 
                         actual cost would be minimal.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Compared to what?

               
                                     CARTER
                         To not getting the satellite back.
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         What about the cost of the delivery 
                         system, never mind the manpower required 
                         to get it through the Gate and then 
                         reassemble it on the other side?
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Sir, I donít think you can place a value 
                         on Colonel OíNeillís life.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Of course not, but...

                         Weíll continue this later.

               
               They all go downstairs.

               
                                     DAVIS
                         Weíre receiving a transmission, audio 
                         only.
 
               
                                     JOLEN
                         This is Jolen of the Tokíra. To whom 
                         am I speaking?
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         General Hammond. Major Carter, Tealíc 
                         and Jonas Quinn are also here.
 
               
                                     JOLEN
                         Major I just received your message regarding 
                         the disappearance of Colonel OíNeill.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Do you have a ship capable of scanning 
                         the planet?
 
               
                                     JOLEN
                         Yes. In fact Iíve already taken the 
                         opportunity to fly over the planet in 
                         question. There were no detectable human 
                         life signs.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Are you sure?

               
                                     JOLEN
                         Quite sure. I am very sorry.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Thank you. Hammond out.

               
                                     JOLEN
                         Jolen out.

               
               The Gate shuts down.

               
               PARADISE

               
               Jack wakes up to find his P90 gone. He picks up his 9mm and moves 
               outside, barefoot. He goes into Maybourneís sleeping area and 
               finds him gone. He then finds his ammunition gone. He looks around 
               more and sees the circular book on the table. He sits down with 
               it and looks through it eating some plant. He picks up some bark 
               and starts to mark down the positions of the skeletons around 
               the camp. Jack then leans on the table and looks at the plant 
               and hears a noise. We also go into Paranoid Jack vision. Jack 
               runs around the camp with his gun in a paranoid way.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Maybourne!

               
               Jack wades through the stream and comes across another campsite 
               with a couple more skeletons. One has a knife in its neck and 
               Jack pulls out a Goaíuld skeleton.
 
               
               LOCKER ROOM

               
               Sam is sitting on the bench, Tealíc opens the door.

               
                                     TEALíC
                         Major Carter.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Tealíc, this is the womenís locker room.
 
                         
               
                                     TEALíC
                         It appears there is no one else here 
                         but you and you are fully clothed.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         True.

               
               Tealíc sits down.

               
                                     TEALíC
                         Are you alright Major Carter?

               
                                     CARTER
                         Iím fine, yeah.

               
                                     TEALíC
                         Have you given up hope of finding OíNeill?
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Hope? No. Iím starting to think Dr Lee 
                         is right. I donít think the doorway 
                         is the answer. Itís been almost a month 
                         Tealíc, if there were a way back. Just, 
                         it feels like we just lost Daniel, and 
                         I donít know if I can...
 
               
               She cries and Tealíc hugs her.

               
               PARADISE

               
               Jack is walking through the forest and trips a grenade. He hears 
               it and dives for cover.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Arrghhh! Argghh!

               
               He then hears and sees a pig with spikes running at him and fires 
               two shots.
 
               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Arrgghhh!

               
               Jack gets up and sees Maybourne under cover bleeding.

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         You shot me!

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         I didnít know you were there.

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Stay back!

               
               He waves the P90 at Jack.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Put that down.

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         You wanted to kill me from the start.
 
                         
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Oh screw you Maybourne! I was joking. 
                         Look what you did to my leg!
 
               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         I set the trap for the pig.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         With a grenade?

               
               Maybourne moves away.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Where are you going? Harry? I found 
                         something. Stop eating that plant. Itís 
                         messing with your head Harry. Ah, screw 
                         you.
 
               
               CAMP

               
               Jack is pulling wood out of his leg.

               
               CARTERíS LAB

               
               Sam and Tealíc are there. Jonas walks in.

               
                                     JONAS
                         General Hammond says heís considering 
                         new SG1 leaders. You included Major.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         We know. Do you have anything?

               
                                     JONAS
                         Yeah, yeah, I was finally able to come 
                         up with some photos of that artefact 
                         Maybourne got his hands on. Itís quite 
                         old making the scroll a bit difficult 
                         to read and Iím pretty sure the markings 
                         on the stone are just decoration but...
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Tealíc, wind back that tape.

               
               He does so.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Stop, there.

               
                                     JONAS
                         That was the first day we were there.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         I donít believe it. It wasnít visible 
                         after that; I forgot it was even there.
 
                         
               
                                     JONAS
                         What?

                         The moon. The doorway device doesnít 
                         use wormhole technology, it wasnít designed 
                         to send you across the galaxy. We thought 
                         theyíd been sent somewhere else on the 
                         planet but they havenít, theyíve been 
                         sent to that moon.

                         The big circle is the planet, the little 
                         circle is the moon, the line between 
                         them is the path of transportation.
 
                         
               
               PARADISE

               
               Jack is resting when he hears a noise. He gets up and we see 
               Maybourne has painted his face and is hiding on the other side 
               of the camp.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Harry? Harry? It was a Goaíuld. It couldnít 
                         bring a weapon through that door so 
                         it brought a plant. Itís some kind of 
                         drug or something. Maybe it was an experiment, 
                         maybe it was supposed to get the people 
                         to serve him, I donít know but it backfired. 
                         These people, they all killed each other 
                         because of that plant. Youíre paranoid, 
                         itís messing with your head. Iím not 
                         trying to kill you.
 
               
               Maybourne fires on the camp where Jack is. He then throws a grenade 
               over and runs a bit nearer. He stops when he hears Jack cock 
               his gun behind him.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Drop it. Drop it now or I will shoot 
                         you.
 
               
               Maybourne raises the P90 and Jack shoots him.

               
               We then get trippy Maybourne view.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Iím not trying to kill you Harry. Youíre 
                         losing a lot of blood. If I donít do 
                         something right now, youíre gonna die.
 
                         
               
               CAMP

               
               Jack is sat by the fire and Maybourne stirs.

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Some retirement this turned out to be.
 
                         
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         How are you doing?

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         My headís a bit clearer. How long have 
                         I been out?
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         I donít know, day or so.

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         I really screwed up didnít I?

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Itís not your fault. None of the people 
                         here could stop themselves.
 
               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Right from the beginning. Sorry Jack, 
                         I never should have dragged you into 
                         this.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Yes Harry, youíve been a very bad boy.
 
                         
               
               Harry takes a strained breath.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Hey, donít you die on me now.

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         What difference would it make?

               
               A Tokíra ship flies into view.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Because weíre about to be rescued.
 
                         
               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Oh thatís nice.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Isnít it?

               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         I canít go back. Iíd rather die here 
                         than spend the rest of my life in jail.
 
                         
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Yeah, um, Iíve been giving that some 
                         thought. I think you suffered enough. 
                         Hell I even got to shoot you.
 
               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Twice.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         I think the Tokíra should be able to 
                         find a nice planet for you.
 
               
                                     MAYBOURNE
                         Thanks Jack.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Sure, Harry, sure.

               
               THE END
