                                      STARGATE SG1

                                      Episode 306

                                    "POINT OF VIEW"

                                           By

                            Jonathan Glassner & Brad Wright




               A darkened room at Area 51.

               
               A mirror suddenly flashes on.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Major! Come on!

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         We gotta go back for the General!

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         I can't shut it down. I won't find this 
                         window again. We have to go now!
 
               
               Kawalsky throws a grenade down the hall and they both reach out 
               to touch the mirror. They are transported to this side of the 
               mirror. The grenade goes off and the mirror switches off.
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         You sure this is the right one to go 
                         to?
 
               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Anywhere's better than the alternative.
 
                         
               
               She steps through a sensor and alarms go off.

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         I guess we'll see about that.

               
               Armed SF's run in.

                         Drop your weapons! Do it now!

               
               They do so reluctantly.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         I'm Dr Samantha Carter from the SGA. 
                         This is Major Kawalsky. We need to speak 
                         to your commander.

               Jack walks down the corridor to the Infirmary.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         So, what's the big emer.?

               
               He sees Samantha sitting on the bed with long hair.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Whoa! What happened to you?

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Jack.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Jack?

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         It's me. It's Sam.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Uh.. Yeah.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         I never expected this variation. You're 
                         alive.
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Don't feel so bad, Colonel. Everybody 
                         around here is telling me the same thing.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Kawalsky?

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         In a manner of speaking.

               
                                     FRAISER
                         Actually, in a manner of fact, sir. 
                         This is Major Charles Kawalsky in almost 
                         every physical respect: his bloodwork, 
                         his dental records.
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         But I'm not supposed to be alive in 
                         this reality any more than you are in 
                         mine. Sorry, Sam.
 
               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         It's not the same with us here, is it?
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Does. anyone wanna let me know what 
                         the hell's goin' on here? Anyone?
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         They appeared a few hours ago in a Nellis 
                         high security lockup.
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         That quantum mirror you got locked up 
                         at Area 51? You guys never figured out 
                         how to use it?
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Is he talking about that alternate reality 
                         thing Daniel futzed with on 233?
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Who's Daniel?

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         We can't be followed if that's what 
                         you're worried about. We brought the 
                         remote through with us.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         I've ordered the device sent here under 
                         heavy guard.
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Where we come from, the Goa'ulds just 
                         took over the world, Colonel.
 
               
               Briefing room.

               
               Jack, Sam, Daniel, Teal'c and Hammond are watching a tape of 
               Samantha's interview.
 
               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Look, I've told you this. Now let me 
                         talk to someone from the SGA.
 
               
                                     MAN
                         SGA? There is no such organisation.
 
                         
               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Well then you call it something else. 
                         The Stargate Project. Stargate Command.
 
                         
               
                                     MAN
                         The Stargate. What do you know about 
                         the Stargate?
 
               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         What do I know?! Everything! We've been 
                         through this!
 
               
                                     MAN
                         Well let's go through it again.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Oh, for crying out loud!

               
               Jack looks astonished and turns to look at Sam.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         It's a big round thing. It takes you 
                         to other planets. I made it work four 
                         years ago and we have been exploring 
                         the galaxy ever since. That is, up until 
                         yesterday, when the Goa'uld came and 
                         started taking over every major city 
                         from orbit and making slaves of the 
                         population.
 
               
               Hammond pauses the tape.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Oh my God. This is too weird.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Yeah. How about that hair?

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         She claims to have travelled from an 
                         alternate universe in the same manner 
                         Dr Jackson experienced a year ago.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well this can't be the Dr Carter I met 
                         in the alternate reality. She 's.. dead.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         All right. Uh. just to clarify. This 
                         Carter is from an alternate alternate 
                         reality?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Apparently.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Anybody else have a problem with that?
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Which reality is actually real.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Thank you Teal'c.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         She explains it.

               
               He starts the tape again.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Look, I know this is hard for you to 
                         understand. But, according to quantum 
                         theory, for every possible universe, 
                         there are an infinite number of variations, 
                         diverging at every choice we make like 
                         forks in a road.
 
               
                                     MAN
                         Uh-huh.

               
               Hammond pauses the tape again.

               
                                     CARTER
                         She's right.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         You just agreed with yourself.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         No, actually, Major Carter agreed with 
                         Dr Carter. She never joined the military 
                         in her reality.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Fork in the road stuff?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Apparently.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         All right. So it's possible there's 
                         an alternate version of myself out there 
                         that actually understands what the hell 
                         you're talking about?
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         They've asked to be debriefed. I'd like 
                         you all to participate.
 
               
               They nod. Hammond turns to the SF on the door.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Show them in.

               
               Samantha and Kawalsky walk in. Kawalsky sees Teal'c.

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         What the hell is he doing here?

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Kawalsky!

               
                                     DANIEL
                         He's a member of SG-1.

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Who the hell are you?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Oh, um, I'm Daniel Jackson. Also a member 
                         of SG-1.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Have a seat Major.

               
               Kawalsky sits down next to Daniel. Samantha sees Sam.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Nice. hair.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Uh, Air Force.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         I can't imagine that- going military.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Wow! I can't imagine not.

               
               Samantha goes to sit next to Jack.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         First of all, I would like to say we 
                         know what you've been through. Dr Jackson 
                         experienced a similar alternate reality 
                         some time ago on a mission to P3X 233.
 
                         
               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Well that's where we found our quantum 
                         mirror as well.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Fortunately for us, Dr Jackson was able 
                         to return with some intelligence that 
                         enabled SG-1 to stop the Goa'uld attack 
                         here on Earth.
 
               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Nice. That goes a long way to explaining 
                         why yours was only one of a handful 
                         of alternate realities that looked like 
                         it hadn't been overrun by the Goa'uld.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Actually, it's probably the very differences 
                         that set our universes apart from yours 
                         that have contributed to our survival. 
                         Daniel's participation in the Stargate 
                         programme, Teal'c's change of heart. 
                         The fact that I joined the military.
 
                         
               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         You think that your being in the Air 
                         Force could have made that big a difference?
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         No. I just said it made a contribution.
 
                         
               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         And therefore I didn't.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Ladies. Sams. We're all in this reality 
                         together.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         What we need to know is where you intend 
                         to go from here.
 
               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Our beta site was instructed to bury 
                         their Stargate the moment the last man 
                         stepped through. And our own world is 
                         under Goa'uld control so we can't go 
                         back.
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         We wanna stay.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         That is.. if we're wanted. We just left 
                         behind everyone we know, everyone we 
                         ever cared about. If you're not gonna 
                         give us a second chance, I don't know 
                         any of you.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Well exactly. You don't know any of 
                         us. And we don't know you. For all we 
                         know. You could be her evil twin. But 
                         then we'd be dealing with cliches and 
                         you know how I feel about those. No, 
                         actually, you know how I feel about 
                         those.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Okay. I'll speak with my superiors and 
                         make a determination. For now, you'll 
                         be assigned temporary accommodations. 
                         Take them to A3 quarters.

                                     CARTER
                         Listen, I didn't mean to offend you 
                         back there.
 
               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Look Major, I'm the one dealing with 
                         the inadequacy issues here. Just forget 
                         about it.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         What?

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         We knew the Goa'uld were coming for 
                         6 months. I couldn't think of a way 
                         to stop them. You did.
 
               
               She walks into the room.

               
                                     FEMALE SF
                         I'll be just outside if you need me 
                         Ma'am .
 
               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Course you will.

               
               The SF shuts the door.

               
               Samantha sits on the bed and takes a photograph out of her pocket. 
               She puts it on the drawers next to the bed. It's a photo of AU 
               Sam and Jack on their wedding day. The camera zooms in.
 
               
               Hammond's Office.

               
               He's on the phone.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Yes, Sir. I understand Sir. Thank you 
                         Sir. They can stay.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         That was quick.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Too quick. God knows what we're getting 
                         into.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Well the combined IQ points of Earth 
                         might go up a few points having two 
                         Carters around.
 
               
               Hammond doesn't smile.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         I take it you figure there's a down 
                         side.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         It just doesn't sit right. Some lines 
                         aren't meant to be crossed. Nonetheless, 
                         I've been encouraged to find a way to 
                         incorporate them into this command.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Okay. In the meantime, do you want me 
                         to tell 'em?
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Very well.

               
               Samantha's quarters.

               
               There's a knock at the door and the door opens.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Just put it on the table and close the 
                         door on your way out.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         I'm sorry. Put what on the table?

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Jack! I'm sorry. Come in. Your. your 
                         Dr Fraiser keeps insisting that I eat 
                         something.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Ah. Well, she's your Doc Fraiser now 
                         too. You're in. They said yes.
 
               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         That's good.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Yeah. I can see you're overjoyed.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         I just never expected this. It's so 
                         hard.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Uh, look. I can't even begin to know 
                         what you've been through. I. I know 
                         you've lost a lot.
 
               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         I lost you. I watched you die Jack. 
                         Three days ago, trying to defend the 
                         mountain. And here you are, alive and 
                         safe in this perfect world, and you 
                         don't even know me.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Well, I. I sort of know you.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         You know her. You don't even see her 
                         that way, do you?
 
               
               Jack sees the photograph and clicks what she is talking about.
 
               
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         I take it, where you're from, we were.
 
                         
               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Married.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Ah.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         This makes you uncomfortable.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         No, no, not at all. I just.. I get confused.
 
                         
               
               Knock on the door.

               
                                     FEMALE SF
                         Ma'am? Sorry Colonel. I.. I didn't realise.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Just put it on the table Airman.

               
                                     FEMALE SF
                         Yes, Sir.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Close the door on your way out.

               
               She leaves and shuts the door.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         I haven't had a hot meal in forever.
 
                         
               
               She gets up and goes to the food.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         It was a couple of weeks ago. We were 
                         celebrating our first anniversary. We 
                         got the call that the Goa'uld ships 
                         had been spotted entering our solar 
                         system. We just left everything. You 
                         blew out the candles and I turned off 
                         the oven and we just left. They didn't 
                         hit Colorado Springs from orbit like 
                         most of the big cities so the table 
                         must still be set.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Cold by now.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Yeah.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Listen, um, I should probably be..
 
                         
               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Stay!

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Sam.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Please.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Look..You're dealing with a loss right 
                         now that I can't even begin to.. what 
                         I mean is, maybe I'm not the right person 
                         to help you.
 
               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Yes, you are. You're the only one who 
                         can. Look.I know you well enough to 
                         know you don't have a clue what to say. 
                         But you don't have to say anything.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Come here.

               
               Jack takes Samantha into his arms while she cries.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Oh, I miss him.

               
               SGC Corridor.

               
               Jack walks out of Samantha's quarters and walks along the corridor 
               where he meets Sam.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Sir. General Hammond told me the news. 
                         I took the liberty of informing Major 
                         Kawalsky.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Thank you. I was just on my way to do 
                         that.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         I thought I'd drop in on, uh, Samantha. 
                         See how she's doing.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         She's fine. I think she'd rather be 
                         left alone at the moment. Just stop 
                         in tomorrow.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Oh, all right. Well, good night, Sir.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Carter?

               
                                     CARTER
                         Yes Sir?

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         How are you doing with this. twin thing?
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Do you have a couple of hours?

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Okay.

               
                                     CARTER
                         That was the answer.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Oh, oh.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Good night, Sir.

               
               Sam walks off.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Good night, Major.

               
               Samantha's Room.

               
               Samantha is brushing her hair when she hears something and drops 
               the brush. She grabs hold of the bed and suddenly her face morphs 
               out.
 
               
               SGC Infirmary

               
               Samantha is in a bed and Sam walks in.

               
                                     CARTER
                         What is it? What's happening?

               
                                     FRAISER
                         Dr Carter has gone into some sort of 
                         convulsive shock. I don't know the cause 
                         and I don't know how to stop it.
 
               
               Samantha starts to fit again.

               
                                     FRAISER
                         Easy.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Not medical. Temporal. Entropic cascade 
                         failure.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         On the cellular level?

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Yes. I thought it would take years not 
                         days.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         So it's a side effect of travel through 
                         the quantum mirror.
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Then why don't I have it?

               
                                     CARTER
                         I'm guessing Dr Carter has it because 
                         I'm here. The increased entropy generated 
                         by both of us existing in the same reality 
                         might theoretically be causing the temporal 
                         distortion.
 
               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Not theoretical any more.

               
                                     FRAISER
                         Okay, so then how do I treat this?
 
                         
               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         You can't.

               
                                     CARTER
                         The more time passes the worse it should 
                         get.
 
               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         So I'm gonna die here.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         You're not gonna die.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Actually, sir.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Carter.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Well the only way she won't is if we 
                         send her back.
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         If she goes back, the Goa'uld will kill 
                         her.

                         Think about it: Billions of people enslaved. 
                         I just can't help but feel that in the 
                         grand scheme of things, we owe them. 
                         Besides the only way to really help 
                         Dr Carter is to stop the Goa'uld in 
                         her reality and save whatever's left.

                         How do you suggest we do that Dr Jackson? 
                         The resources of their entire world 
                         couldn't defend against the Goa'uld.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         What about the resources of our world?
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         What do we have that they don't?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Our fate. We made contact with the Asgard.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         So?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         So if Dr Carter can make contact with 
                         the Asgard in her reality, maybe their 
                         Asgard will be willing to help them.

                         Defend their world against the Goa'uld?
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yes.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         And just how do you propose we raise 
                         the Asgard, in their reality?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Okay, we still have the dialling program 
                         that took you to the Asgard home planet, 
                         right?
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Which we could download to a removable 
                         hard drive. But that still won't do 
                         it. Remember, in order to dial the Asgard 
                         homeworld they had to provide us with 
                         a generator to transfer extra energy 
                         to the Gate's capacitors. I can't get 
                         it to work again. Apparently, it was 
                         designed to work only once.

                         Assuming, Major Carter can figure it 
                         out, once in her reality it will be 
                         difficult to get Dr Carter to the Stargate 
                         without the Goa'uld detecting and stopping 
                         her.

                         That's where I come in. Permission to 
                         join the briefing Sir?
 
               
               Hammond indicates for him to sit down.

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         I'll get her to the Stargate. What you 
                         think I'm gonna let her go alone? She's 
                         my best friend's wife.
 
               
               Sam and Jack look at each other as Sam works out who Kawalsky's 
               best friend is/was.

                         You'll need someone to hook up the power 
                         generator.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         And download the dialling program.

                         We can handle this.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         No, Teal'c has a point. You said yourself 
                         that Teal'c led the assault on the mountain 
                         in your reality. Couldn't we use something 
                         like that to our advantage?
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Quite the military mind, Daniel Jackson.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         No, Sir. I'm sorry. Teal'c can't go 
                         anymore than I can. Entropic cascade 
                         failure. If I go, there will still be 
                         two of me in one reality. And the same 
                         will be true with Teal'c.

                         Dr Carter did not become ill during 
                         her first 48 hours. If our mission is 
                         not completed during that time, it is 
                         most likely that we will be dead.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Good point. Are you okay with all this 
                         Sir?
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         If you feel confident you can pull this 
                         off, I have no objections. However, 
                         on your return, I want that quantum 
                         mirror destroyed.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Okay, well this is all well and good, 
                         but none of us are going anywhere unless 
                         we get that Asgard generator working 
                         again.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Okay. Carter, download the program to 
                         the removable whatever-it-is and meet 
                         me and yourself in the lab.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Yes Sir.

               
               Lab

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Well this is incredible. If the Asgard 
                         could design this to give the Gate extra 
                         juice then they're just the little green 
                         men we're looking for.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         They're grey actually. Roswell Grey 
                         to be exact.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         I had a hard time trying to figure out 
                         how this worked the first time let alone 
                         make it work again.
 
               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         If it's powered by the energy module 
                         of a staff weapon why doesn't it.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Blow up? My best guess is the device 
                         creates a modulated dampening field 
                         around the liquified naqahdah cell.
 
                         
               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Which controls the energy transfer to 
                         the capacitor. So maybe the modulation 
                         is thrown out of whack each time it's 
                         activated.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         That's exactly what I thought! But how 
                         do you even begin to recalibrate a field 
                         that you can't generate in the first 
                         place?
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Hey, hey, hey, hey! Are you Carters 
                         gonna be able to figure this out?
 
                         
               
                                     SAMANTHA/CARTER
                         We'll figure it out.

               
               Samantha goes into convulsive shock again.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Aarrgh!

               
                                     CARTER
                         We have to figure it out.

               
               Room with Mirror

               
               Kawalsky is explaining to Daniel how to work the controller for 
               the mirror.
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Okay, the way Dr C explained it, the 
                         controller is not what you'd call an 
                         exacting science. You can't just dial 
                         up an address like you would on a Stargate. 
                         You have to kinda figure out where you 
                         are.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I guess it's not a very expedient way 
                         to get home.
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         As long as you don't turn it off, it's 
                         always connected to the same reality.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         So when you turn it on again, it won't 
                         be connected to the reality you came 
                         from?
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Right. We'd have to find it again. Now 
                         this thing switches to the various realities. 
                         If I turn it on now, it should come 
                         up somewhere the reality it was last 
                         on.
 
               
               He switches the mirror on and we see a corridor similar to one 
               in the SGC.
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         There. See? That's not it. No grenade 
                         damage. I tossed a grenade down the 
                         hall to slow them down so they didn't 
                         see us go through the mirror.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         So we need to find a reality that's 
                         just right. Do you mind if I.?
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Oh..

               
               He hands the controller to Daniel and Daniel turns it. It comes 
               on to a room similar to Area 51
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         There. See? You probably turned it the 
                         wrong way. Since this device should 
                         be in a storage closet in my reality, 
                         dial it the other way.
 
               
               Daniel dials until he comes across a corridor with Jaffa in it.
 
               
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Change it! Change it! Change it!

               
               Daniel changes it to an empty hall.

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Okay. Closer. What you wanna do is dial 
                         it in smaller increments.
 
               
               Jack walks in.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Daniel? You understand this thing?
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I think so.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Good.

               
               Samantha comes into view.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Colonel!

               
                                     CARTER
                         We did it!

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Already?

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Yeah, all we needed was the ratio decay 
                         rate of naqahdah relative to the energy 
                         output.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Which I learned to calculate when I 
                         learned about our new naqahdah generator. 
                         It's just the ratio.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Agh! It works, right?

               
               Samantha flicks the switch and it glows green.

               
                                     CARTER
                         It works.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Good.

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         I guess we better go do this.

               
               SGC Storage Room

               
               Samantha has changed into her normal clothes, Kawalsky is back 
               in his black BDU's and Teal'c comes in wearing Jaffa uniform. 
               Jack and Daniel are standing by the mirror also wearing black 
               BDU's.
 
               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Yep, that's right. Looks like him.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I am not fond of wearing this uniform 
                         again.
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Well I'm not too fond of seeing you 
                         wear it.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I've searched through all the descriptions 
                         of realities close to ours and this 
                         has to be it. It's the only one matching 
                         your description.
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Yeah.

               
               Sam comes in and stands in front of Samantha.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Wish I could go.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Same here. But you don't wanna go through 
                         a cascade tremor, believe me. We made 
                         a good team Major.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Yeah, we did Doctor.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Plus your hair's kinda grown on me. 
                         Pardon the pun.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         You'd better go.

               
               Samantha walks to the mirror and Sam turns to Jack.

               
                                     CARTER
                         I'll be here in case you need anything 
                         from this side, sir.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         All right. On three. One, two, three.
 
                         
               
               They touch the mirror and are transported to the other side. 
               An alarm is going off so they move to hide quickly. The sounds 
               of Jaffa troops are heard. Jack looks back and still sees Sam 
               on the other side of the mirror. He makes a slashing movement 
               indicating Daniel should switch the mirror off. Daniel mouths 
               he shouldn't do that but Jack mouths back that he should 'switch 
               it off'. Daniel switches off the mirror. The team waits for the 
               Jaffa to go past but one returns to look into the storage room. 
               He then walks off. Jack gives the team some hand signals and 
               he and Kawalsky move out following the Jaffa. As they go we see 
               the SGC has been trashed. They reach the Gateroom door and we 
               see Jaffa lined up behind EvilTeal'c.
 
               
                                     EVIL TEAL'C
                         Jaffa!

               
               They bow to their knees as the Stargate disengages. Apophis walks 
               down the ramp with two Serpent Guards. Evil Teal'c bows his head 
               and Apophis walks off.
 
               
                                     EVIL TEAL'C
                         Jaffa!

               
               They rise again. Meanwhile in the corridor, Jack signals Kawalsky 
               to retreat.
 
               
                                     EVIL TEAL'C
                         Kree!

               
               The Jaffa start to move out. Jack and Kawalsky wait a little 
               way in the opposite direction and Jack throws a metallic object. 
               Evil Teal'c turns his head at the sound.
 
               
                                     EVIL TEAL'C
                         Lonok.

               
               Jack and Kawalsky move and Evil Teal'c starts to follow.

               
                                     EVIL TEAL'C
                         Kronok, Jaffa!

               
               Evil Teal'c sees Jack and starts to run after him.

               
                                     EVIL TEAL'C
                         Jaffa! Kree! Jaffa!

               
               He reaches the open door of the storage room and raises his staff 
               weapon. He slowly enters and comes face to face with.. Himself.
 
               
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Kel nok Teal'c.

               
                                     EVIL TEAL'C
                         Kel shak?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Renounce Apophis as a false God and 
                         join us in our deliverance of this world 
                         and I will spare you.
 
               
                                     EVIL TEAL'C
                         Shol'va!

               
               The end of his staff weapon glows but Teal'c is quicker and shoots 
               him dead.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         The idea was to zat him.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         As I said O'Neill. Ours is the only 
                         reality of consequence.
 
               
               AU SGC Corridor.

               
               Some more Jaffa approach the storage room. Samantha comes out 
               with Teal'c posing as Evil Teal'c.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Jaffa. Kree!

               
               He shuts the door behind him.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Kel toc no.

               
               Samantha is led away.

               
               AU SGC storage room

               
               Jack signals Kawalsky to watch the door and he goes over to Daniel 
               who is trying to find his/our reality.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         All right. I gotta know.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yes, I'm about to activate it.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         No, no, no. Not that. What the hell 
                         does Kree mean?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, actually, it means a lot of things. 
                         Uh, loosely translated it means "attention," 
                         "listen up," "concentrate."
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Yoo-hoo?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yes, in a manner of speaking.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Oh.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Okay, here goes.

               
               He switches the device on and doesn't get the reality he just 
               came from.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         That's what I was afraid of. When I 
                         turned off the device, it lost it's 
                         place. I have to find our reality all 
                         over again.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         All right. It's okay. We knew that might 
                         happen. Stay with it.
 
               
               Daniel keeps turning the remote while Jack and Kawalsky move 
               out again shutting the door behind them.
 
               
               Jack and Kawalsky move down the hallways until they reach a panel 
               on the wall. Jack keeps watch while Kawalsky puts explosives 
               down between the wall and panel edge. They move away slightly 
               and Jack detonates it. Jack checks inside after it's blown and 
               they start to climb the steps inside.
 
               
               AU Control Room.

               
               Apophis and Jaffa are torturing AU Hammond for information.
 
               
               
                                     APOPHIS
                         I will ask you this one more time, human. 
                         What is the address of the planet to 
                         which your leaders have fled? The place 
                         you call "beta site".
 
               
               One of the Jaffa strikes AU Hammond on the back with a pain stick 
               and he cries out.
 
               
                                     AU HAMMOND
                         Aaarrghhh!!

               
                                     APOPHIS
                         Where have your leaders gone?

               
               Teal'c arrives with Samantha.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Kel Apophis.

               
                                     APOPHIS
                         Teal'c. Who is this?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         She was captured attempting a escape, 
                         my lord.
 
               
                                     APOPHIS
                         This one will not tell us the glyphs 
                         for the planet where they've sent their 
                         leaders. Get it out of him. Or get it 
                         out of her.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Yes, my lord.

               
               Apophis leaves with two Serpent Guards.

               
               Teal'c is left with two Jaffa.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Attend to our lord. I will take care 
                         of these. Kree Jaffa!
 
               
               They bow and leave.

               
                                     AU HAMMOND
                         You might as well kill me.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I would never do such a thing General 
                         Hammond.
 
               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         It's okay. You're not hallucinating. 
                         He's from an alternate reality.
 
               
                                     AU HAMMOND
                         So that mirror thing worked?

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Yeah. But don't worry. I won't say "I 
                         told you so".
 
               
                                     AU HAMMOND
                         We should have tried it a long time 
                         ago Doctor.
 
               
               As they untie him, Teal'c notices on the monitors that a Goa'uld 
               pyramid ship is descending over the mountain.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         They have landed on the mountain.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         There's still a chance we can stop them 
                         Sir. We're gonna attempt to contact 
                         a race of aliens that they have in their 
                         reality. Enemies of the Goa'uld.
 
               
               AU SGC Corridor..

               
               Jack pushes out a grid in the wall and he and Kawalsky come through. 
               They pull out zat guns and carry on.
 
               
               AU SGC Storage room.

               
               Daniel is still flicking between realities. He comes across one 
               that shows Jaffa in SGC corridors.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Whoops! Too far.

               
               He flicks between two realities with Jaffa in the SGC and then 
               hits a beach scene.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Come on, please.

               
               AU SGC Main power vault.

               
               Jack opens the door to the grid and opens Kawalsky's pack with 
               the Asgard device in.
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         The Carters are pretty smart figuring 
                         that thing out, huh? So you and Sam, 
                         you never had a thing in your world, 
                         huh?
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Sam is a Major in my world.

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Yeah, I know. It's against regulations, 
                         right? You two look pretty good together, 
                         let me tell you.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Kawalsky? During your Special Ops training, 
                         in your world, did they cover silence?
 
                         
               
               AU SGC Storage room.

               
               Daniel is still flicking. He suddenly comes across one that has 
               Sam and other Airmen behind sandbags in another Storage room.
 
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yes.

               
               In the mirror, Sam moves forward and lowers her weapon. She then 
               beckons to him to come through. Daniel waves back but then notices 
               that on her fatigues it says Capt. Carter.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         You're a Captain.

               
               He waves back and goes to turn the remote again.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Close.

               
               AU SGC Control Room.

               
               Samantha is sat at the computer.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Okay, now.

               
               Teal'c inserts something into a machine in the background.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         I hope your Jack is good enough to get 
                         the transformer on line.
 
               
               AU SGC Main power vault.

               
               Jack plugs the last wires in, switches the generator on and he 
               and Kawalsky leave.
 
               
               AU SGC Control Room.

               
               The Gate starts to dial.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         It appears that he is.

               
               The Gate continues to rotate.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         You must prepare to go through the Gate, 
                         Dr Carter.
 
               
               Samantha gets up and kisses Teal'c on the cheek.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Thank you, Teal'c.

               
               The Eighth Chevron locks and the Gate engages.

               
               Hammond puts down his gun and places his hands on his head. Samantha 
               reaches the Gate room and ducks under a zat blast.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Jaffa! Kree hol mel! Hol mel Jaffa!
 
                         
               
               The Jaffa stops and Samantha takes the opportunity to run up 
               the ramp and dive headlong into the event horizon. The Gate closes.
 
               
               
                                     APOPHIS
                         Teal'c.

               
               Teal'c turns to see Apophis standing behind him.

               
                                     APOPHIS
                         Why do you betray me?

               
               Teal'c stands silently.

               
               AU SGC Corridor.

               
               Jack and Kawalsky move back towards the storage room. They open 
               the door to be confronted with 7 Jaffa all pointing staff weapons 
               at them and Daniel, who is in the middle.
 
               
                                     JAFFA
                         Lower your weapons or we will kill him.
 
                         
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Colonel?

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Yeah, we should do that.

               
               One of the Jaffa then discovers Evil Teal'c dead on the floor.
 
               
               
               AU SGC Control Room.

               
               Teal'c, AU Hammond, Jack, Daniel and Kawalsky are lined up on 
               their knees in front of Apophis.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Déjà vu.

               
                                     APOPHIS
                         Who are you?  My First Prime killed 
                         you before my very eyes.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         I'm feeling much better, thank you.
 
                         
               
                                     APOPHIS
                          Then who are you? What magic is this?
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         You should know better than anyone, 
                         there's no such thing as magic.
 
               
                                     APOPHIS
                         Trey lan tonik.

               
               A Jaffa behind AU Hammond raises his zat gun.

               
                                     APOPHIS
                         I will ask you one more time. How could 
                         you have risen from the dead without 
                         a sarcophagus?
 
               
               Apophis nods at the Jaffa and he zats AU Hammond.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                          All right, I'm guessin' the second 
                         shot kills in this world too, huh?
 
                         
               
                                     APOPHIS
                         Tell me what I want to know!

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Hey. I'd love to. But I don't understand 
                         it myself. He does. 
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Okay, I'll, uh, I'll give it a try. 
                         Um, you see, at every point in time, 
                         there are infinite possibilities. A 
                         parallel reality exists for each possibility 
                         so there are literally infinite branches.
 
                         
               
               The Jaffa zats AU Hammond a second time at Apophis' nod.

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         NO! You..

               
               The Jaffa behind Kawalsky grabs him and restrains him.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Kawalsky!

               
                                     APOPHIS
                         Tell me where you come from.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         From an alternate reality.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         One in which, by the way, you're dead.
 
                         
               
               The Jaffa then zats Daniel.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Aw come on!

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         He told you everything he knows!

               
               The Jaffa raises his zat again ready to give Daniel the second 
               shot when another Jaffa runs up the steps.
 
               
                                     JAFFA2
                         My lord. Tel kol, Apophis. Kree no tel, 
                         Reenlokia!
 
               
               He points at the monitor above their heads. The Gate starts to 
               activate and a blip is seen heading towards the mountain on the 
               screen.
 
               
               Daniel is helped up by Jack and Kawalsky.

               
                                     APOPHIS
                         Mel tok nee!

               
               Most of the Jaffa leave the room except for the Serpent Guards. 
               Apophis raises his hand with the Ribbon Device on when...
 
               
               He is beamed out by the Asgard.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Okay, I'm guessin'.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Asgard.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         All right.

               
               The Gate activates and the Jaffa start to run through it. As 
               the last Jaffa jumps through, the end of his staff weapon is 
               caught and severed as the wormhole shuts down.
 
               
               In the Control Room, Jack, Daniel, Teal'c and Kawalsky see the 
               Goa'uld ship taking off from the mountain. An Asgard ship is 
               descending. The mountain shakes and the body of AU Hammond is 
               beamed out.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         It appears Dr Carter was successful.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Come on. Ya gotta love those guys!
 
                         
               
               Samantha is then beamed down.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         I met the Asgard.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         We guessed that.

               
               AU Hammond is suddenly beamed down alive and well. Samantha goes 
               over to give him a hug and kisses him on the cheek. The Asgard 
               ship then takes off.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Love those guys.

               
               AU SGC Storage Room.

               
               Hammond and Sam are waiting on the other side of the mirror while 
               Daniel, Teal'c and Jack say goodbye to Samantha and Kawalsky.
 
               
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Colonel, it's been a pleasure to serve 
                         with you. again.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Likewise.

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Right, right.

               
               They salute each other. Kawalsky then turns to salute Teal'c 
               and Daniel. Samantha moves to stand in front of Jack.
 
               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         This is hard. Goodbye for a second time.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         It's the first time.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         It doesn't feel that way to me. You 
                         have to understand. My Jack had the 
                         same face, same voice, same hands.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Which brings to mind an obvious question. 
                         How could you marry such a loser?
 
                         
               
               Samantha smiles and turns to Daniel and Teal'c.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         Thank you.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         You're welcome.

               
               Jack tilts his head to indicate that Teal'c and Daniel should 
               go back through the mirror. They do so.
 
               
               Samantha and Jack stare at one another and she moves in to kiss 
               him. The camera then shows Sam and Hammond through the mirror 
               watching. Sam looks everywhere else but Samantha and Jack kissing 
               but is then drawn to watch them.
 
               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         You're really not him, are you?

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         No.

               
                                     SAMANTHA
                         I just wish...

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Yeah.

               
               Jack walks over to the mirror and touches it. He appears back 
               on the other side and the mirror goes dark. Samantha looks away 
               from the mirror with tears running down her cheeks.
 
               
               Fade out.

               
               
               THE END
