                                      Episode 411

                                  "POINT OF NO RETURN"

                                           By

                              Paul Mullie & Joseph Mallozzi




               We begin with a shot from below of Sam pouring water in a glass.
 
               
               
                                     SAM
                         Does anyone know what this meeting's 
                         all about?
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         No, but I hope it's important. I was 
                         working on translating the
 
               cuniform tablet we found on P3O-255.

               
                                     SAM
                         I still have to finish recalabrating 
                         MALP 3-K sensors for long-term
 
               reconngnisses on P5X-3D7.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I was unable to complete my Kel'No'Reem.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         (Laying on his arms) I was just about 
                         to do something important.
 
               
                                     GH
                         (Walking in) All right, people. As you 
                         were. We have ourselves a
 
               switchboard received the following call ---

               
               GH Switches the tape recorder on.

               
                                     MAN
                         (From the TR) Hello. This is a message 
                         for Colonel Jack O'Neill and
 
               anyone else who's listening. I know this call's being monitored, 
               but don't
 
               bother to set up a trace. I'm at a phone booth in Butte, Montana, 
               and I'll
 
               be long gone before your black-ops teams can get here. You're 
               not dealing
 
               with an amateur. I know all about Roswell, (Jack kinda rolls 
               his eyes here.)
 
               And the Kennedy cover-ups, and the --- (GH begins to FF tape.)
 
               
               
                                     GH
                         He goes on like that for a while.(GH 
                         stops tape)
 
               
                                     MAN
                         (Continuing on TR) ---and the C.I.A.-sanctioned 
                         Microwave harassment,
 
               and the --- (GH Continues to FF tape) (Danny raises his eyebrows 
               in boredom)
 
               
                                     GH
                         Quite a while.

               
                                     MAN
                         (After more FF ding) --- And the Lizard 
                         people. (A smile slowly creeps
 
               across Jack's face! He's so cute!) (Here, seeing Jack grin, Sam 
               tries to
 
               hide a smile by looking next to her at Danny, Danny looks at 
               Jack) But the
 
               point is, none of these compare with your little secret, Colonel. 
               I'm
 
               talking about a large circular object, discovered in Egypt, currently
 
               
               residing at the bottom of a missle silo under Cheyenne Mountain. 
               I believe
 
               you call it the stargate. Now that I've gotten your attention, 
               I want to
 
               meet --- tomorrow, 11 A.M. at the New Cloverleaf Restaurant in 
               Billings, and
 
               Colonel, come alone. (GH stops recorder)

               
                                     JACK
                         Interesting. (Sam and Danny share glances)
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         It would appear base security has been 
                         breached.
 
               
                                     GH
                         I want to know who this man is. I want 
                         to know how he got his
 
               information, and I want to know who he's been talking to. You 
               leave in half
 
               an hour.

               
               OPENING CREDITS

               
               Next shot goes to the diner. Jack is tapping his fingers nervously, 
               and
 
               impatiently on the table. A man walks up to him. The shot pans 
               his clothing.
 
               He has nice dress shoes on with gray dress pants, blue dress 
               shirt, with a
 
               tan jacket. He's pretty well dressed. He's a balding man with 
               big blue eyes
 
               , and thick glasses.

               
                                     MAN
                         Colonel O'Neill?

               
                                     JACK
                         (Looking up) Yeah?

               
                                     MAN
                         Sorry I'm late. I think I was followed. 
                         (Looks around)
 
               
                                     JACK
                         (Also looks around) Ya sure?

               
                                     MAN
                         Yeah. But don't worry. I managed to 
                         loose 'em.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Very professional. (Man looks around) 
                         What's your name?
 
               
                                     MARTIN
                         You can call me Martin.

               
                                     JACK
                         (Looking very yummy in a green civy 
                         shirt) OK, Martin. (MMN! Love the
 
                         
               gray hair!) What's this about?

               
                                     MARTY
                         (Not to be confused with another Marty 
                         who was a Tok'Ra!) If you
 
               don't mind, Before we get started ---

               
               Jack watches as Marty gets up and stands next to him. He has 
               something that
 
               looks like a cellular phone in his hands. Jack rises.

               
                                     MARTY
                         (Passing the cell-phone looking thingy 
                         over Jack's body  
               get out! Shut up, AQ!>) Just like to check you for transmitters. 
               (OH! NO!
 
               Oh, to be that transmitter! OOPS, I said it! )

               
                                     JACK
                         Okay ---

               
                                     MARTY
                         You're clean. You understand, a man 
                         in my position has to take
 
               precautions.

               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah. You never know who's listening.
 
                         
               
               While the following conversation is going on, the Shot goes to 
               Teal'C
 
               dressed as a short order cook, white hat and all, turning the 
               check console
 
               in the kitchen to reveal a small hidden camera!

               
                                     MARTY
                         Exactly! I don't know about you, but 
                         I always feel like I'm being
 
               watched.

               
                                     JACK
                         Come on, Martin. Let's get to it, what's 
                         going on here?
 
               
                                     MARTY
                         You know as well as I do, Colonel.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         I don't.

               
               Shot goes to the camera's prespective of the diner.

               
                                     SAM
                         OK, Here we go. (Typing) We've got a 
                         driver's licence. We should be
 
               able to find him.

               
                                     DANNY
                         You know, I've never been on a stakeout 
                         before. Shouldn't we have
 
               like donuts or something. (Takes a sip of his coffee)

               
                                     MARTY
                         A top secret government program involving 
                         instantaneous travel to
 
               other Solar Systems, by means of a device known as a stargate.
 
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Sounds like a good idea for a TV show. 
                         If you're into that sort of
 
               thing.

               
                                     MARTY
                         Colonel, let's not play games. If it 
                         isn't true, then why would you
 
               come all this way?

               
                                     JACK
                         OK. The truth, there is a top-secret 
                         government program called project
 
                         
               Stargate.

               
                                     MARTY
                         I Knew It!

               
                                     JACK
                         But it has nothing to do with space 
                         travel.
 
               
                                     MARTY
                         What does it have to do with?

               
                                     JACK
                         Magnets.

               
                                     MARTY
                         What the hell is that supposed to mean?!
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Nope, I've already said too much.

               
                                     MARTY
                         Colonel, you're not taking this seriously.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         No, I'm not.

               
                                     MARTY
                         I need help.

               
                                     JACK
                         Why? What seems ---

               
                                     MARTY
                         I have to go thru the star gate!

               
                                     JACK
                         Marty, I don't ---

               
                                     MARTY
                         No, I mean it. I've come to realize 
                         that I don't belong here. For the
 
                         
               longest time, I was obsessed with all those --- (Jack shifts 
               his eyes toward
 
               Teal'C who just looks at Jack) --- Alien conspiracies --- crop 
               circles, cow
 
               mutilations, the Apollo cover-up.

               
                                     JACK
                         I thought the lunar landings were a 
                         hoax.
 
               
                                     MARTY
                         No, that was the story created by the 
                         government to direct attention
 
               away from the real cover-up. Everybody knows that! Anyway, one 
               day, I'm
 
               online, and I find this conspiracy chat room, and they're talking 
               about
 
               something called the star gate. Most of it was disimformation 
               , but the word
 
               "Stargate" stuck in my head. It triggered what I later realized 
               was an
 
               oppressed memory. You see, Colonel O'Neill, the truth is, I'm 
               not just
 
               interested in outer space --- I'm FROM outer space.

               
                                     JACK
                         (Looking @ him with no expression) Check, 
                         please!
 
               
               Next shot is Danny looking over the driver's shoulder to the 
               diner from the
 
               van.

               
                                     SAM
                         We've got something. (Danny walks to 
                         the back of the van) (Pointing to
 
                         
               the computer screen.) That's him, Martin Lloyd, brown hair, hazel 
               eyes.
 
               (Typing) (Mug shot comes up) Looks like he's got a criminal record. 
               He was
 
               arrested for protesting outside a TV station. He said subliminal 
               advertising
 
               was controlling his thoughts.

               
                                     DANNY
                         (Raises his eyebrows) Do you have a 
                         current address?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Yeah, I could get the prescription of 
                         his glasses if I wanted. (More
 
               typing)

               
                                     MARTY
                         So, you still don't believe me?! I'm 
                         an Alien!
 
               
               JACK: SIGHS YOU LOOK PRETTY HUMAN TO ME. SMILES

               
                                     MARTY
                         No --- what I believe, is that thousands 
                         of years ago, people were
 
               taken from earth, maybe as part of some experiament, maybe as 
               slaves, who
 
               knows. But the point is, there are entire civilizations up there 
               descending
 
               from those original humans.

               
                                     JACK
                         Now, that's just crazy talk!

               
                                     MARTY
                         Want proof?! (Stops when waitress brings 
                         check) I can give you proof.
 
               I can show you my ship.

               
                                     JACK
                         Look, Marty, I'm a busy man. And you 
                         don't strike me as any great
 
               threat to national security --- (He stops when he see's the check. 
               It says
 
               WE'VE GOT HIS ADDRESS, STALL HIM! On it. He also ordered a Cherry 
               pie which
 
               costed $2.00 and a coffee which costed $.75 for a total of $2.75! 
               What's his
 
               thing with pie??!?!? ) But, as you know, it never hurts to 
               be thorough.
 
               So, show me. (Marty nods, and gets up. Jack rolls his eyes, and 
               gets up)
 
               
               Shot goes to wooded area with a nice stream.

               
                                     MARTY
                         It's just over the next ridge. The ship's 
                         supposed to be buried, but
 
               I know exactly where it is.

               
                                     JACK
                         (Looking exceptionally yummy in leather 
                         jacket!) Marty --- what makes
 
               you think you can trust me with all this?

               
                                     MARTY
                         I can't explain it Colonel, I just have 
                         a gut feeling. We have
 
               something in common.

               
                                     JACK
                         Well, that's very flattering, but I'm 
                         not an alien.
 
               
                                     MARTY
                         I KNOW that! Something else.

               
                                     JACK
                         (Quietly) Right.

               
                                     MARTY
                         Up here.

               
               Next shot goes to Sam's shoes getting out of the car. I knew 
               it was her by
 
               the way she walks. Sam really looks great! She has black shoes 
               with a buckle
 
               on them, denim pants, and jacket, and a pink or salmon colored 
               turtle neck
 
               sweater.

               
                                     SAM
                         This is it. (As they walk up to the 
                         house)
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         Nice place! (Sam knocks on the door)
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Hello?! (She looks @ Danny and shakes 
                         her head.) (She proceeds to pick
 
               the lock! Man, that girl got skills!) (They walk in the house. 
               It has all
 
               kinda alien stuff in it!) Oh, Boy!

               
                                     DANNY
                         Something tells me we don't need to 
                         worry about this guy.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Except for the fact he happens to be 
                         very close to the truth. (She
 
               walks up too --- IS THAT THOR?!?!?!?!?!?! Sorry!  It's a statue 
               that
 
               looks just like the Asgards.) He looks familiar!

               
               Space noise is heard. Sam looks toward Teal'C who is playing 
               with a toy
 
               laser gun.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         (Dead seriously!) It would appear 
                         this weapon is ineffective.
 
               (Sam smiles)

               
               Danny opens some blinds. Then he looks thru some cabinets. Opens 
               up another
 
               cabinet to reveal it's FULL of prescription bottles!

               
                                     DANNY
                         Oh, Hello! Sam, you're gonna wanna --- 
                         take a look @ this! (Sam walks
 
               over to Danny, you can still hear the sounds of the toy gun!)
 
               
               
                                     SAM
                         Whoh, that's quite a collection! Tranqualizers, 
                         antidepressants,
 
               Antipsycotics. Looks like our friend here has been treated for 
               a number of
 
               different psychotic problems.

               
                                     DANNY
                         Yeah, why doesn't that surprise me?
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         (Walking thru woods with Marty) Marty, 
                         we've been walking around for
 
               the last half hour!

               
                                     MARTY
                         I don't understand it! The clearing 
                         where I landed should be around
 
               here somewhere.

               
                                     JACK
                         How do ya loose a spaceship?

               
                                     MARTY
                         Well, my memory isn't so good. Sometimes, 
                         I get a little confused. I
 
               think it might be the medication.

               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah, well, there ya go. Hey, listen,(Grabs 
                         Marty's arm to stop his
 
               walking) I'm gone back to the car.

               
                                     MARTY
                         NO! Wait! You can't --- please --- It's 
                         around here somewhere. I know
 
               it is!

               
                                     JACK
                         Marty, listen to me! There IS no spaceship! 
                         You're NOT an alien!
 
               
                                     MARTY
                         You don't understand!

               
                                     JACK
                         I get that a lot. (Marty bows his head) 
                         Come on. I'll drive you back
 
               to town.

               
               Danny's reading a journal.

               
                                     SAM
                         Find anything?

               
                                     DANNY
                         Oh, yeah. It's a diary. (Reading from 
                         Journal) Um --- April 12
 
               Comb missing. Suspect CIA has stolen it to aquire genetic identification.
 
               
               dresser Disposed of it in case of Tampering, bought new comb 
               39 cents (Sam's
 
               walking around as Danny talks) @ shopmart. I'm telling you this 
               is a
 
               complete waste of time. He has paranoid delusions. (Sam looks 
               into Thor,
 
               uh --- I mean the sculpture of the Roswell greys)

                         Looks like Martin's got visitors.

                         what happens when I get a
 
               thermo scan. (OH! Well! Look at Junior! ) Definitely not human.
 
               
               
               Back @ base, Janet knock on a door.

                         Sir, I have the results of the tests 
                         done on the medication that
 
               Major Carter took from Martin's house. (She hands him the report)

                         Preliminary analysis was done in a Montana 
                         lab. They faxed it over.
 
               There are some anomalies.

                         Several unidentifiable chemicals were 
                         present. I believe that the
 
               drugs may have been tampered with.

                         I can't say. I mean for all we know, 
                         the medications may be the cause
 
               of his delusions.

                         I must say, your phone call piqued my 
                         curiosity. I don't often
 
               get requests for information from the military!

                         This is a matter of National Security, 
                         Doctor Tanner. The privilidge
 
               doesn't exist in this case.

               
                                     DR. TANNER
                         National security involving MARTIN! 
                         (Chuckles) I find that hard
 
               to believe!

               
                                     DANNY
                         Why do you say that?

               
                                     DR. TANNER
                         Let's put it this way, people like Martin 
                         sometimes compensate
 
               for their feelings of insignificance by creating elabrate fantasies 
               in which
 
               they are the center and focas of all the attention. These people 
               are usually
 
               harmless, although they may try and draw others into their illusions. 
               That's
 
               what's happened here.

               
               Some Alien movie is on TV. A machine is whirling, and humming?? 
               Is heard!
 
               The machine stops. Teal'C walks up to Jack, and puts his big 
               hand out. Jack
 
               reaches into his pocket, and takes out a handful of coins, and 
               gives them to
 
               Teal'C! LOL! He puts a coin in the machine, and smile the biggest 
               ,
 
               teethiest, smile I have EVER seen! He lays down on the bed, which 
               starts
 
               shaking . OH! MY GOD!!!! Guys! I THINK it's TEAL'C that's humming, 
               because
 
               when the bed starts vibrating, the hums vibrate as well! Knock 
               on the door.
 
               
                                     MARTY
                         Colonel O'Neill! (Teal'C perks his head 
                         up) Colonel O'Neill, are you
 
               in there?

               
                                     JACK
                         (Mutes TV, and walks to the door) Martin?
 
                         
               
                                     MARTY
                         Please! I have to see you!

               
               Jack throw a hat @ Teal'C who is sitting up on the vibrating 
               bed.
 
               
                                     MARTY
                         Oh, good. You're here. You have no I 
                         dea how --- (He stops when he
 
               sees Teal'C laying on the bed) Who's he?

               
                                     JACK
                         Um --- my friend --- Murrey. (Teal'C 
                         , still laying on the vibrating
 
               bed, waves)

               
                                     MARTY
                         You trust him?

               
                                     JACK
                         Oh, yeah!

               
                                     MARTY
                         I guess it's OK.

               
                                     JACK
                         Good, glad you're confortable.

               
                                     MARTY
                         (Looking out of blinds, then closing 
                         them) Don't ya wanna know how I
 
               found you?

               
                                     JACK
                         (Shaking his head no) Uh --- OK! (Said 
                         less than enthusiastic)

                         (Struggling with the cheap cutains) 
                         In your car, I notice a map of
 
               the Sleep-Rite Motel Chain. I checked every one in town.

               
                                     JACK
                         There's 2.

               
                                     MARTY
                         I'm surprised a man in your position 
                         wouldn't take more precautions
 
               to maintain your cover.

               
                                     JACK
                         I'm not undercover.

               
                                     MARTY
                         (Locks door) You think I'm making this 
                         all up. Look at this. (He
 
               produces what appears to be a toothpick) (Teal'C , smiling on 
               the still
 
               shaking bed, looks @ him)

               
                                     JACK
                         (Sarcastic, monotone voice) (Taking 
                         the toothpick) Yes --- It all
 
               makes since now.

               
                                     MARTY
                         I propped it up against the inside of 
                         my door. When I got home, it
 
               was on the ground, meaning --- someone was there.

               
                                     JACK
                         If you prop it up against the inside 
                         of your door, how do you get out?
 
                         
               
                                     MARTY
                         Thru the window! You think I'm so stupid, 
                         I go out my own front
 
               door?!

               
               Shot goes to a still smiling Teal'C on the still vibrating bed. 
               It stops
 
               vibrating, and he sits up.

               
                                     JACK
                         So, you leave the window unlocked?
 
                         
               
                                     MARTY
                         That's right. I put a hair on the inside 
                         of the window sill, and when
 
               that's gone when I ---

               
                                     JACK
                         Marty!

               
                                     MARTY
                         The point is, someone was there. They're 
                         after me. Help me, please!
 
               I'm running out of time.

               
                                     JACK
                         (Annoyed??) What do you want?

               
                                     MARTY
                         I wanna go home. You have to take me 
                         thru the stargate.
 
               
               Back to Doctor's office .

                         Dr. Tanner, it may be true that Martin 
                         is delusional, but there are
 
               still some unanswered questions here.

               
                                     DR. TANNER
                         Such as?

                         He seems to be taking a lot of medication.
 
                         
               
                                     DOCTOR
                         Only what is necessary.

               
               Sam starts reciting various meds.

               
                                     DOCTOR
                         Major, please! I don't have time to 
                         discuss pharmacology. This
 
               interview is over. (Getting up)

               
                                     SAM
                         Doctor Tanner, we obtained samples of 
                         Martin's medication, apparently,
 
               the drugs have been tampered with.

               
                                     DOCTOR
                         That's obserd! There must be some kind 
                         of mistake!

                         The tests were very thourough.

               
                                     DOCTOR
                         I don't know anything about this. I 
                         mean, I just write the
 
               prescriptions! I don't MAKE the drugs!

               
                                     SAM
                         We're not accusing you of anything! 
                         We're just looking for answers.
 
               
                                     DOCTOR
                         You realize that this investigation 
                         is only gonna fuel Martin's
 
               paranoia!

               
                                     SAM
                         We have no choice! Now we're gonna get 
                         to the bottom of this with or
 
               without your help.

               
                                     DOCTOR
                         I --- don't know what else I could tell 
                         you.

                         anyone else?
 
               
               Doctor gets up and looks in filing cabinet.

               
                                     DOCTOR
                         This is his work address. (Writes it 
                         down and hands it to Sam)
 
               That's the best I can do.

                         I knew it would come to this! They'll 
                         do tests on me, they'll
 
               dissect me like one of those demented high school biology experiments

               thing, what makes you think your way home is thru this --- stargate?
 
               
               
                                     MARTY
                         I---I,I,I--- I don't know! I get these 
                         Ideas. Flashes. It's a little
 
               confusing I don't even know for sure WHY I want to go it's just 
               --- a, a
 
               feeling --- I'm somebody there. Like, like there's --- something 
               important
 
               for me to do there, more important than anything I can do here. 
               Can I have a
 
               glass of water?

               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah. (Gets up, and goes to kitchenette 
                         and makes the water) (Marty
 
               digs in pocket for meds.) Let me see those. You should go easy 
               on this ---

                         But ---

               
                                     JACK
                         Just for a while. Trust me.

               
                                     MARTY
                         What about the symbols?

               
                                     JACK
                         What symbols?

               
                                     MARTY
                         It's one of the things I see in the 
                         flashes, there's 7 of em. I wrote
 
                         
               them down. (Jack opens the paper to reveal 6 various symbols, 
               with the earth
 
               symbol as the last symbol!) (He shows it to Teal'C)

               
               Danny and Sam walk in the warehouse.

               
                                     SAM
                         Hello?!

               
                                     DANNY
                         This is the place?

               
                                     SAM
                         Yeah. This is the address he gave us.
 
                         
               
                                     DANNY
                         But --- it doesn't look like anyone's 
                         place of work, there's --- no
 
               one here. (Sam turns around to guns pointed @ them.) (She puts 
               her hands up)
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Except for the guys with guns! (Sarcastically) 
                         (Danny turns)
 
               
                                     MARTY
                         (In Rambling mode!) This is totally 
                         unfair! Just cause I'm from
 
               another planet, I don't have rights , I mean doesn't the Geneva 
               convention
 
               protect extra terrestrials?!?!? I'll haveta remember to go online

                         Should they not have contacted us by 
                         now?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Yep.

               
                                     MARTY
                         You know, guys, it would be a really 
                         good idea if I took some of my
 
               medication now.

               
                                     JACK
                         I don't think so.

               
                                     MARTY
                         The thing is, ifI go too long without 
                         it, I tend to get a little
 
               nervous. No, really. (To Teal'C, who just gives him a stoic look 
               --- You
 
               know the look, right?)

               
                                     JACK
                         Marty, sit down. Let's talk about these 
                         symbols.
 
               
                                     MARTY
                         They mean something, don't they?

               
                                     JACK
                         Right now, I need you to think very 
                         carefully. Where did you see them?
 
                         
               
                                     MARTY
                         I told you, I have these visions. I 
                         don't know where they come from.
 
               Maybe it has something to do with my implant.

               
                                     JACK
                         Implant?!

               
                                     MARTY
                         They put an implant in my head. I always 
                         thought they were sending me
 
               symbols.

                         (After Jack just stares @ Marty) To 
                         whom are you referring?
 
               
                                     MARTY
                         You know --- them. The secret government. 
                         The New World Order, black
 
               helicopters, underground bases, don't you guys read the papers? 
               (Teal'C
 
               appears to roll his eyes!)

                         Marty! (Holding his head like he has 
                         a headache) For GOD's Sake!
 
               
                                     MARTY
                         You don't believe me. My neurolgist 
                         didn't believe me either,the
 
               implant is so small, it can't be read under normal ex-ray

               
                                     JACK
                         (Looking at Teal'C) (Softly) This is 
                         going no where! I'm gonna go look
 
                         
               for Carter and Daniel. (Handing him the meds) Keep an eye on 
               him.
 
               
                                     MARTY
                         Hey! Where ya goin'? (Jack leaves) (To 
                         Teal'C) Murrey --- (Teal'C
 
               gives him a threatening pair of eyes!) (He looks scared)

               
               Next shot goes to Sam and Danny's feet tied to the chairs. Pan

                         OK. Let's keep this simple! Who are 
                         you?
 
               
                                     SAM

                         means you answer OUR questions! So,

                         (You know from this angle , he sure 
                         looks a lot like Martouf!) Well,
 
               what are you doing here?

               
                                     SAM

               Shot goes to Teal'C reading a tabloid paper, the whistle blower.

                         (Walking in) Psychiatrist's office was 
                         completely empty, like no one
 
               had ever been there.

                         I got some people on it. Where's Marty?

                         (Knocking on door) Uh --- Murrey? Listen, 
                         uh --- I'm REALLY Sorry I
 
               tried to bite you, and I realize it was totally out of line , 
               but I was
 
               wondering if I could come out now? Or I could just stay in here. 
               That's good
 
               too. It's just, I'm getting a little dizzy.

               
                                     JACK
                         I don't get it. How does a nut case 
                         like that get a set of gate
 
               coordinates? (A thud is heard) Marty? Martin! (Knocks) You all 
               right? (He
 
               opens door) Oh! Crap! (Marty's laying on the floor) Marty?! Marty!!?! 
               (Slaps
 
               his face) Come on, Marty!

                         (Standing behind Jack) In hindsight, 
                         we should have given him his
 
               medication, O'Neill.

               
                                     MARTY

                         He's an associate.

               
                                     MAN
                         Yeah, we know that! We also know that 
                         he's not from around here.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         Not from Montana?

                         We should have turned left @ the bottom 
                         of the ravine instead of
 
               turning right.

                         Do you now believe Martin is correct 
                         about his spaceship?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         (Sighs) No --- but he's the closes thing 
                         we've got to a lead on Carter
 
               and Daniel. (Motions for Teal'C to proceed him) After you, Murrey.

                         This is it! I told you! (Running, while 
                         looking back at Jack and
 
               Teal'C) This is the clearing! The ship is around here somewhere! 
               But,
 
               remember, it's buried, so keep you eyes open, and watch your 
               step --- (He
 
               falls head over heels ) This is it! I KNEW it was here! (Marty, 
               Jack, and
 
               Teal'C are digging) I knew it! I'm NOT crazy!

               
               The air forse has set up camp to retrieve the ship.

                         The material the object is made from 
                         is definatelly not
 
               terrestrial. I used Sonar to get the general size and shape, 
               and I've
 
               enhanced the image by extrapolating the exposed portune. It should 
               look
 
               something like this. (Screen shows craft with wings) Approximately 
               16 feet

                         That's not right. It's too small! That 
                         can't be my ship.

                         Could it be an excape pod?

                         That's it! There must be some kind of 
                         malfunction! We abandoned the
 
               ship, and came down in the pod!

                         We? There's MORE of you? How many more?

                         I'm not sure.

               
                                     SOLDIER
                         There can't be too many, Sir. Maybe 
                         4 or 5 @ the most.
 
               
                                     MARTY
                         All this time, I thought the government 
                         was watching me. What if it
 
               was the others?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         What would these others want?

               
                                     MARTY
                         I don't know. Maybe they're afraid. 
                         They don't wanna be exposed.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         If that is the case, then these others 
                         may indeed be responsible for
 
               the disappearance of DanielJAckson and MajorCarter.

                                     MARTY
                         Nice van! What do you call that color? 
                         (Into lapel) KIND OF A
 
               GREYISH-GREEN, HUH?!?!?!

               
                                     MAN
                         Just get in!

               
                                     JACK
                         All right, they're moving.

               
                                     MARTY
                         So, you're gonna drug me again?

               
                                     DT
                         Well, obviously, that didn't work. (Takes 
                         remote out of pocket) I'm
 
               afraid we're gonna have to take more drastic measures.

               
                                     MARTY
                         You're not gonna kill me? You know how 
                         many people know about this,
 
               now? What about Major Carter and Doctor Jackson? Are you gonna 
               kill all of
 
               us?

               
                                     DT
                         We're gonna do what we have to do.
 
                         
               
                                     MARTY
                         This isn't right. I know you. I know 
                         all of you. We were on this ship
 
               together. We're soldiers, not murderers. That's why you drugged 
               me in the
 
               first place.

               
                                     DT
                         Martin---

               
                                     MARTY
                         It's not too late. Our people are at 
                         war. They need us.
 
               
                                     DT
                         Martin, I hate to see you like this. 
                         You're my best agent.
 
               
                                     MARTY
                         I was never any kind of agent! You're 
                         just saying that because you
 
               think I'm bugged!

               
                                     DT
                         Well, aren't you?

               
                                     MARTY
                         NO! Of course not! The government agency 
                         thing, was just a cover.
 
               (Infered shot of target moving on road) We're all really Aliens 
               , right?
 
               
                                     DT
                         With all the secretcy, and all the lies, 
                         you can get confused.
 
               
                                     MARTY
                         Who's confused! I know who I am! Why 
                         are you guys doing this? Why
 
               can't you just admit it? We can all just go home! THEY HAVE A 
               STARGATE!
 
               
                                     JACK
                         They've stopped. Get to them! (He cocks 
                         his gun)
 
               
               Van and special ops crews arrive @ the warehouse.

               
                                     JACK
                         (To driver of van) Seal off the area. 
                         No one in or out. (Jack and
 
               Teal'C go in the warehouse, while the special ops teams stay 
               outside.) (He
 
               walks towards Sam and Danny, Sam is stirring) (Whispering) Carter?
 
               
               
                                     SAM
                         (Groggy) Sir?

               
                                     JACK
                         (Walking over to Sam, and grabbing her 
                         arm) You all right? (Digs in
 
               his pocket, she nods yes) (Danny begins to wake up)

               
               Teal'C has come around the van. Shot goes to his face thru the 
               dirty glass.
 
               He opens door, Marty is grunting. His mouth is bound with duct 
               tape.
 
               
                                     MARTY
                         Oh, Murrey! Am I glad to see you! Oh 
                         ---
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Where are your friends?

               
                                     MARTY
                         I'm not sure.

               
                                     JACK
                         (Into radio) Sargent? Any sign of the 
                         targets?
 
               
                                     SARGENT 
                         (Thru radio) Negative , Sir!

               
                                     JACK
                         They just disappeared?

               
                                     MARTY
                         They're Aliens, right? I got evidence. 
                         Look.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         What's that?

               
                                     MARTY
                         A mobile computer device. I snuck it 
                         out of Tanner's bag. It has
 
               multible functions, see? (It's beeping) Uh-Oh!

               
                                     JACK
                         What?

               
                                     MARTY
                         Guys, we'd better get out of here. This 
                         thing is counting down!!!!!
 
               
                                     JACK
                         (Running out of the building) CLEAR 
                         THE AREA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Cool from
 
                         
               the bottom shot of Marty, Sam and Jack diving onto the cement) 
               (After they
 
               land, and NOTHING happens) Well?

               
                                     MARTY
                         That's weird! I'm sure this is a countdown 
                         for some sort of
 
               detination!

               
               GREAT shot of Ship blowing up, creating a creater.

               
               Shot of the chevrons locking.

               
                                     MARTY
                         Exactly! This is just like I remembered!
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Chevron 7 is locked!

               
                                     DANNY
                         He was right! It's an active gate.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Sending the MALP thru.

               
                                     MARTY
                         I remember EVERYTHING now! There WAS 
                         no malfunction!
 
               
                                     JACK
                         What are you talking about?

               
                                     MARTY
                         When we abandoned the ship, we did it 
                         deliberately. We were loosing
 
               the war. We're deserters. After a while, I realized what we'd 
               done wrong, I
 
               wanted to go back home. But, the others were afraid.

               
                                     JACK
                         So, they gave you the drugs?

               
                                     MARTY
                         They're not --- bad guys. They're just 
                         hiding.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Receiving MALP telemetry.

               
                                     MARTY
                         You're gonna hunt them down, aren't 
                         you?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Not me.

               
                                     MARTY
                         But the military, the government?

               
                                     JACK
                         I don't think anyone's gonna find them.
 
                         
               
                                     DANNY
                         GH Says you're a go.

               
                                     MARTY
                         Really?

               
                                     DANNY
                         Yeah , it's safe --- but, uh --- you're 
                         not gonna like it.
 
               
               They go thru, and emerge on the other side. Everything is destroyed!
 
               
               
                                     MARTY
                         They were right! If we'd gone back, 
                         we'd be dead now.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         I'm sorry, Martin.

               
                                     MARTY
                         So, now what?

               
                                     JACK
                         We go home.

               
               He begins dialing the gate ---

               
               THE END
