A shot of the X-302 is shown being wheeled on a runway.
The X-302 will be the first human built
spacecraft ... (Shot goes to Sam) Capable
of intersteller travel.
(To Jack, who is shown) Colonel Chekov
feels a Russian officer should be assigned
to join SG-1.
Over my rotting corpse, Sir.
I want to join you.
I just don't see it happening. (Another
scene, in the control room, to Jack
and Hammond ) We detected an energy
buildup within the gate.
(On another planet, to Teal'C and Bratac.)
The Tauri are in danger ... they are
under attack from Anubis.
(To Jack and Hammond) We're talking
about a blast 2,000 to 3,000 megatons.
We have no idea how to stop it.
If the X-302 fails, this planet will
(Climbing in the spacecraft, to Jack)
Even if we do manage to contact the
Asguard, there's a chance (Voiceover,
the plane is shown taking off) they
won't be able to help us.
(Voiceover; the plane is still being
shown) Anubis has grown powerful; (He's
shown, talking to Teal'C.) but still,
only defends a very small handful of
planets. If one of those stargates also
can not be contacted ...
... It is most likely, the origin of
The plane is shown flying toward a hyperspace window, but missing.
Mission command, we missed the window.
(To Hammond and Lemon boy ... uh ...
Dr. McKay) We thought we'd compensated
for the energy fluctuations emitted
by the Naquadria, but apparently not.
Bottom line is, we're on our own.
(LESS than impressed! ;)) Oh, PLEASE!
(Sarcastically, walking up the steps
with Sam) He has a real FLAIR for the
dramatic, doesn't he?? Very theatrical.
Yeah. Pretty much all the Goa'Uld are
But, why wait? Why does this guy show
up a day and a half after this all starts
to do his whole "Prepare to meet your
I don't know. Maybe he wanted to make
sure it was gonna work. (Sam smells
the coffee )
Yeah, that WOULD be embarrassing, wouldn't
it? --- (Darth voice again) "Nothing
can stop the destruction That I bring
upon you!" (She makes a face, and put
the coffee down) Then the gate shuts
down. Oops, sorry. Nevermind ...
Yeah, well, that didn't happen, and
we only have ... 54 hours left.
GEEK # 1
Major, can I see you for a second? When
the gate was connected to the black
hole, a shaped charge was used to disengage
Yes, but that was an outgoing wormhole.
GEEK # 1
True, but ...
GEEK # 2
The blast would detonate the gate. (Sam's
shaking her head)
Wait a minute ...
GEEK # 1
If you'd just let me FINISH!
(Walked over to the observation window)
No, you're both horribly wrong, both
of you, but you gave me an idea. (Sam
smiles to herself) We know that certain
waves can travel in both directions
thru a wormhole ... radio signals for
So, what? We call Anubis up, ask him
Yeah, (Sarcastically in a fast talking,
Agent's voice) "Hey, Anubis, this is
you agent, you're playing it way over
the top, can you get serious, please??"
(This gets a smile from Sam)
You were saying ... ?
We send a massive EM pulse back thru
the wormhole, knock out whatever it
is that's making this happen on the
Will that work?
No, Sir. I already thought of it, and
the reason I didn't mention it, is because
it would be too problematic.
More so than the gate exploding?
The Iris would have to be opened.
Well, the gateroom's shielded, isn't
Major, are you saying that this absolutely
What I'm saying is that we have no idea
how much EM would be required to knock
this thing out.
(Sarcastically) So, let's all just go
home. (Sam looks pissed)
How long will it take to set up?
Four hours ,tops.
(To Sam) That's how long you have to
come up with a better idea.
(Dialing a planet, getting no response,
to Teal'C Ryac, and the jaffa) I have
tried to connect to this world twice
now. It is the only one I can not make
Than we must hope that is the location
of the weapon.
(The Jaffa begin walking to the ship,
he stops his father) I'm coming with
you. If the Goa'Uld truly can be defeated,
than I wish to be a part of it. You
said I could not judge this war if I
am yet to fight a battle. (To Bratac)
You've trained me. Now let me fight.
(Teal'c and Bratac share looks) You
said you did not doubt me.
I do not.
Than I will join you. (Teal'C looks
(Looks at Ryac) Very well.
(Carrying a computer into hammonds office
where Jack is in there with Hammond)
Sirs, I've calculated that opening the
iris will increase the flow of energy
to the gate by at least 10 times. Nw,
if this doesn't work, we'll be cutting
as much as half the remaining time before
the gate detonates.
No ... better idea yet?
Major, I know you and Dr. McKay don't
see eye to eye, ...
Sir, this has nothing to do wi ...
I believe if this plan has any chance
of working, it's with your cooperation.
(Nodding her understanding that he's
ORDERING her to work with lemon boy)
Yes, Sir. (Looks at Jack, picks up her
computer and leaves. Jack and Hammond
both look displeased )
Back on the ship, Ry'ac is taking some Goa'Uld Grenades (The
ones that blind) out of a cart, and putting then in a bag. Teal'C
looks see if he's doing it right.
(To his father) I know what I'm doing.
We are approaching the planet. (They
come out of hyperspace ,and quickly
cloak the vessel)
(Seeing about 5 motherships floating
above the planet) It is heavily guarded.
That is a good sign that we have the
correct location of the weapon.
(His name escapes me. sorry! ;)) There
are rings on the surface.
We must hope to catch any Jaffa on the
ground by surprise.
(To, it looks like Siler who's measuring
the distance with a tape measure) Right
here. (Walks down the ramp, to Sam)
You just want to be able to take credit
for it when it works.
(Pointed, just for him ;)) For the record,
I *HATE* you. (Lovely smile on her face)
Well, can't get any worse, then,can
Oh, no. I'm rapidly working up to "Despise".
You know, we're obviously gonna have
to get over this physical attraction
thing if we're going to work together.
(Whispers) I think I can act as though
it never existed.
Shall we save the world?
(Sarcastically) Before I take the credit
for this ... shouldn't the EM pulse
generator be pointed *AT* the gate??
(Points at her) You good! (Sam points
back at him smiling) VERY good! (The
SF's turn the EM pulse generator around)
Ryac ... You are to remain on board
with Shaq'Rel. (Well, there's his name!
One day, you will be a great warrior.
This day, the danger is just too great.
I am prepared to die.
(Smiles with pride) I am not prepared
to let you die.
A loud boom is heard, and the craft shakes.
Two gliders in pursuit.
How is that possible?? Are we not cloaked?!
Anubis must now have means of detecting
I am de cloaking, and diverting power
to shields. (They are dodging shots
from the gliders. Another jolt) Entering
range of service rings.
Is it not equally as dangerous on this
ship as it will be on the planet??
Go! I will do my best to return for

the ground may have been alerted to

generator) That's it!
(She and McKay are leaving the gateroom)
We're ready , Sir.
(As McKay and Sam make it to the control
room, Sam sits next to Davis) Close
the blast doors. (the doors close, and
the machine turns on) Open the iris.
(Sam opens the iris using her hand print)
Energy transfer is increasing. Seven
times greater ... eight ... 10 ...
(Hammond looks at him) Go! Yeah, Go!
(To Davis) Do it.
Activating electromagnetic pulse.
The machine is shown whirling. The monitors shut off in the control
room, they now can't see the gate.
Energy transfer is still increasing.
Look, if this was going to work ...
Lightning comes out of the gate, and goes to the EM generator,
then all around the gateroom, remember, unseen by everyone cause
the monitors are off, then it travels to the blast door of the
control room, thru the doors to the control room, flashing around
Close the iris!
Sam puts her hand on the hand plate to close the iris, and gets
shocked, falling back. McKay looks terrified. The iris does finally

path) The path is well traveled. We
must stay undercover. Many gliders patrol
(In reference to Ry'Ac) This wound is
not small. You must be in great pain.
Nothing I can not bear.
You could easily be dead.
I do not understand. There was at least
eight of them.
How did either of you get hit??
It is always more difficult to hit a
It is also helpful to be lucky. (Teal'C
smiles at this)
A glider is heard passing overhead.
There is little time to waste. (They
start moving again)
Cheyenne Mountain, nighttime. (Hey! The guard has a friend with
a truck! ;))
Sam winces in pain as a nurse bandages her hand.
(in a hospital gown ... or two hospital
gowns ;)) Oh, Man! I was just starting
to feel better!
(Sits on the bed across from the one
she's sitting on) Are you gonna be OK?
At least until the gate explodes, yeah.
Look, I ne ... I never meant for anyone
to get hurt ... much less you.
It's OK. We had to try something.
(takes a deep breath, appearing to be
relaxing) I always wanted to be a pianist.
(Well, obviously I wasn't the only one
who heard Penis!) Excuse me?
A concert pianist --- you know, a guy
who plays the piano (Makes like he's
playing the piano) in front of lots
(Sam smiles ... is she blushing?? ;))
What did you think I said? MWAHAHAHAA!>
(SO not getting what all of us heard!
;)) I had a not-so- comfortable childhood.
My Parents hated each other, blamed
me. Music was my salvation. It had this
... perfect order for me.
(Smiles) (Trying to be nice, but not
very interested) That's nice, really.
When I was 12, my teacher told me to
quit. A fine clinical player, he said,
but no sense of the art whatsoever.
Why are you telling me this?
I'm just ... trying to bond.
Hospital gowns turn me on. (Smiles)
I turned to science because I thought
it would be different than music, but
It isn't. It's just the same, it's just
as much of an art as anything else.
Look, it's not your fault that the EM
pulse didn't work.
You're an artist, Major. Maybe the best
I've ever seen. I'm just critical because
I'm touched, really. I wish I had a
brilliant plan to draw up for you.
And you're funny, too. Even electrocuted.
I mean, I've ... I've got nothing.
You're creeping me out, McKay.
It's just self preservation, see? I'm
realizing that I won't be able to solve
this, and that one of your insane idea
will be our best chance.
How much time until detonation?
You were right, we cut it almost in
Well, first, I thought I'd get dressed.
Right. (He just sits there looking at
Right. (Stands) Do you want me to ...
hold anything, or ... (Sam stands looking
like she wants to kick his butt;)) Yeah.
(He runs out the room)
Sam winces in pain, holding her hand, smiles, and sits back down.
Back on the planet. A glider flies overhead. The trio comes up
to Anubis's weapon. It's a large circle with statues all around
it. In the center is a big statue that's shooting lightning to
the opened stargate.(Kinda like in Window of opportunity at the
beginning) All around the circle is lightning, protecting the
This weapon is unlike any Goa'Uld design
I have ever seen.
I have seen similar a construction before.
It appears to have been built by the
Who are they?
An advanced race of beings who, long
ago, created the stargates.
But I thought the ...
The Goa'Uld steal the technology and
claim it as their own.
If this is not Goa'Uld technology, then
Anubis has nearly learned to operate
it , then ...
Perhaps by destroying it, he will not
be able to rebuilt it quickly.
But do we have sufficient explosives?
That does not concern you. You are to
remain here. (Getting up)
But, I ...
You are injured. You will slow our pace,
and risk giving us away.
But my symbiote heals me. I CAN go.
Ry'Ac, listen to him. This is but one
of many battles to be fought. (Ry'Ac
looks disappointed, but he knows they
Remain here until sundown. We will try
to return before then.
GEEK # 1
(They are walking behind Hammond and
Sam) If we encase the gate in trinium
alloy, it could reduce the effects of
the explosion by as much as 40 %.
GEEK # 2
There isn't time for that plan! If we
detonate the gate ourselves right now,
we could reduce the eventual damage
by as much as 20%. (Sam looks at Hammond,
who shakes his head in dismay)
GEEK # 1
The damage to the planet's atmosphere
would still be irreversible. Any
survivors would be stuck on a world
incapable of surviving life as we know
GEEK # 2
So far we've been unsuccessful in our

What are you thinking?
(Looking out at the gate) Besides the
fact that these guys are morons?? What
do you think the little Alien guy's
doing down there?? ;)>
Sam looks down to the gate, and Jonas is standing on the ramp,
drinking his tea, just looking at the gate. The camera pans around
him, down in the gateroom. You get a *REAL* good shot of his
body as the camera moves around him. Sam walks
in the room.
I bet you regret coming her now.
Can't really look at it that way, can
So ... what are you doing?
You know, it's the stupidest thing,
but it's been bugging me since I got
We're inside a mountain. The obviously
can't fit thru any of these doors ...
So, how did we get it in here?
The ceiling retracts. ( The opening
in the ceiling is shown) Above it is
a shaft that leads to the surface, and
inside is a crane mechanism that hoisted
the gate down.
Does it go up?
Moving the gate won't shut it off. I
mean there is nowhere on Earth that
... (She takes a few
seconds to do some calculations, a smile
slowly appearing on her face)
I knew you'd think of something. (She
pats his back, and runs out)
Teal'C and Bratac are walking toward the weapon, and hits a shield.
This shield most likely extends around
the perimeter of the weapon.
The Path ...
(Talking to the Who's Who of Geekdome!
;)) Just hear me out, people. All we
need to do is get it far enough away
from Earth. (Hammond, McKay, and Jonas
:)> are there too.)
Now, the X-302 can still achieve that
without having to enter hyperspace.
See, now *THAT'S* crazy!
GEEK # 2
We have less than 24 hours.
2 hours to get the gate to the surface,
4 to get it to Peterson and loaded onto
a C-17, and 2 more to fly it to Area
51. A 747 meets us in Nevada , which
leaves us 16 hours to get the whole
rig mounted and airborne ... and none
of this is gonna happen if we're all
just standing around here. Now, I think
that this is gonna save the planet,
and ... we ARE gonna do it.
*MOVE* , people! (The geeks get on their
way) Well done, Major.
It wasn't all my idea, Sir, and I dare
say it's not done yet.
Right. (Turns to leave)
Sir ... you do realize that if this
works, we won't have a Stargate anymore
It *did* occur to me. (He leaves, and
Jonas walks up to Sam, they share a
2 Jaffa walk in front of the weapon. They get shot with ZATs,
and fall down. Teal'C and Bra'Tac are shown coming from behind
a rock, and walking on the path.
JAFFA (Offscreen) Drop you weapons! (Alas, our hero's are surrounded
by Staff welding Jaffa! They put their hands up in defeat)
Sam, Looking at the Irised gate, to
someone thru his microphone on his head)
Yeah, this is Sergeant Cyler. We're
ready! Activate the crane. (A GREAT
shot of the gate being lifted thru the
shaft is shown)
(Remember the Russian Colonel?? ;))
I have been instructed by my superiors
to offer the following compromise: In
exchange for your continued cooperation,
and full disclosure of the X-302 technology,
(Hammond is shown from the observation
room, with 22(Hours):16 (Minutes):55(Seconds):39(Milliseconds)
left on the clock, watching the gate
being lifted out of the room) we are
willing to facilitate the use of our
A financial arrangement to be negotiated.
You want us to *Rent* it?!
A simplistic way of putting it.
The X-302 's hyperspace technology doesn't
It will someday. Obviously, the reason
I am here is because my government is
unwilling to incur the expense and risk
in running a Stargate program such as
this one. We are simply trying ...
Here's the part you obviously don't
understand ... even if ... and I stress
"IF" we are able to successfully dispose
of THIS gate, there's nothing stopping
Anubis from starting all over again
with the second gate. No one's going
to be running a Stargate program, Colonel.
The second gate *HAS* to stay buried!
(Chekov doesn't look amused)
(Looking at a grenade,
Teal'C is brought to him, and forced
to kneel) What did you hope to accomplish
here? Did you really think you could
destroy something created by a god as
powerful as Anubis??
He did not create the weapon, and he
is NOT a god!
(Slaps Teal'C) Your god may have been
weak, Shol'Va! Mine is not!
If you know of me, than you know of
our cause. The Jaffa rebellion grows
strong. All Goa'Uld are false gods,
and their only REAL power comes from
the Jaffa whom they oppress!
( Hits Teal'C again, then cocks his
staff weapon in Teal'C face) The next
time that you open your mouth to speak,
it will be to answer my questions. (Turns
off staff) You did not kill all the
Jaffa at the rings. We know there are
three of you. Where's the boy? (Teal'C
just looks at him) Evidence of how desperate
your pathetic little rebellion is ...
You bring a *BOY* to fight the war of
*MEN*? (This pisses Teal'C off!
;) He makes a lunge at the Jaffa) Or is it something else?
Maybe he is someone to whom you wish
to prove yourself. (He sees it in Teal'C's
eyes) Bring me the old man. Cover the
boy so he will not escape. Unlike you,
he is of little importance to Anubis.
However, on your behalf, I'll be sure
to demonstrate to him how a real warrior
fights ... to the death!
(To Sam walking the corridor to the
elevators) Is there anything else I
Well, there is concern that the 302
may not have the fuel capacity to exit
the atmosphere carrying the weight of
How is *that* possible??
The engines were designed for a craft
with a Alien Inertial dampening system

And you'll need to reach an altitude
exceeding 180 kilometers ...
... At minimum escape velocity before
I release the gate, or it'll fall back
to Earth ... I know, I know.
Well, based on the X-302 's fuel burn
capacity, even a full burn won't do
it, which means the other engines will
have to get you part ways up, hauling
something that weighs 6 times greater
than it was designed to carry.
Yeah, Carter ...
Well, the whole rig isn't exactly aerodynamic

it or not, every pound counts.

Yes, I'm sure you do. (Stepping in the
elevator) And I find that quite bizarre.
Well, Sir, if this works, Jonas really
What? Deserves what?
I don't know ... something. He's the
one who gave me the idea to do this.
Sir, he gave up everything to bring
us the Naquadria.
The hyperspace generator doesn't work.
That's not his fault. (He nods) Good
Hey, what could go wrong, huh? (Presses
the elevator button, nothing happens.
He bangs on it 3 more times, nothing
happens, Sam smiles. The door finally

was gonna happen until 5 minutes ago.
You're not gonna believe this ... (They
get to the door of the hanger, Murphy
puts on his hat. Jack stops, looking
at something in awe.)
The X-302 is strapped to the top of a 747.
They're waiting for you. (Jack climbs
in a jeep) Good luck! (Jack just smiles)
Ry'Ac is shown arriving at "Command Central" on the planet. Several
gliders are shown on the ground. He looks up as he hears one
flying overhead. The boy crawls on the ground.
They're airborne, Sir.

Anyone want to wish me luck?
We're working on it.

screen deep in thought.) Based on altitude,

If he put the 302 in a nosedive, he
could cut his descent time in half.
Why would we do that?
So he could drop the gate in the Atlantic.
I'm thinking there's time for it to
sink maybe 2 ... 3,000 feet.
Will that do any good?
Enough to reduce the effects of the

Not much, Sir.
Enough that it's worth a shot, isn't

if we tried to open a hyperspace window
within the atmosphere.
Yeah, well, given the situation ...
Sam turns away looking worried.
We're taking it under advisement.
Major, I can make a call.
Do it, Sir.
(To Sam) You really are a certifiable
lunatic! I know what I said about you
being an artist, but I hadn't slept
in 3 days, I mean this is deranged!
You're talking about putting an interdimential
field around an already highly charged
stargate with an unstable and a completely
unpredictable burst of energy!
I realize th ...
What I am suggesting has real tangible
Maybe it saves a few lives. If this
works, we save the entire planet!
What chance do we have of that?!
Well, maybe we can reduce the risk a
SAM & MCKAY
Well, the instability of the Naquadria
... Is relative to the size of the burst
you're trying to extract.
We don't actually have to send the gate
across the galaxy, do we?
Even a second in hyperspace potentially
gets us million of miles!
(To Hammond) Make the call!
(In the red phone) This is General Hammond.
I need to speak with the President immediately!
(The clock is shown, it has 11 minutes.)
Altitude ... 7-6 kilometers and still
OK, we have orders, Starflight ... We're
gonna try it your way.
Thank you. Run me thru it.
Sir, we're gonna have to override the
safety protocol that caused the X-302
to avoid the unstable wormhole. We think
we can greatly increase the chance of
this working by only activating the
generator for one second. Unfortunately,
it wasn't programmed to work for such
a short period of time.
Hang on ... (He types something)
(To McKay) Right. Of course. Thank you.
(To Jack) We're gonna write a new subroutine.
It'll be ready to upload in a few minutes.
Alright, well, in the meantime, I'll
just ... keep falling.
Teal'c and Bra'Tac watch as Ry'Ac shoots at the weapon.
54 left on the clock.
we're done! Uploading the new program,
Sir. All you'll have to do now is activate
You won't have much time.
Sir, if this works ...
(Puts his sunglasses over his eyes.)
Activating Hyperspace generator ...
(Flips some switches) Now ... (The window
forms before him, and he battens down,
pulling on the ejectors. The hatch appears
to release as the craft flies into the
(After Davis is shown at a computer,
and 13 seconds is on the clock) This
is observer one ... we have visual confirmation
... (Jonas, McKay and Sam appear to
be holding their breaths) the X- 302
has entered the hyperspace window.
(Looks worried) Colonel?? Colonel??
Do you read??
(The time runs out) This is observer
one ... there is NO sign of a chute.
(Apparently, the man is in one of the
F-16 s. Explosions are seen in the daylight
sky outside of the plane) There is,
however, a light show going on up here
It worked! (Jonas looks worried) Deeps
space is estimating that the gate detonated
over 3 million miles from earth. ( Hammond
and McKay have happy, but sad looks)
(Sam looks sad, and closes her eyes)
This is observer 2 ... I have a visual
on a chute ... (Hammond looks at Jonas,
who smiles) moving in for confirmation.
(McKay moves his mike from his mouth,
and appears to take a deep breath) Mission
command, the cockpit is intact! (A lovely
smile appears on Sam's face) We are
pinpointing splashdown position.
Patching in satellite imagery.
(The parachute is seen on the screen)
Observer 2, para rescue team is on the
Roger that! Colonel O'Neill is conscious,
and waving! (Sam smiles brighter, it
looks like she high-fives someone(I'm
assuming McKay cause he looks down with
a huge grin on his face. Everyone applauds.
Jonas and Hammond smile and shake hands.)
The gate has shut down.
Let us hope it is not too late.
Ry'Ac is shown in a glider. He flies low above Anubis's new toy,
and shoots it. He smiles as he hits it, but he's being pursued
by some other gliders. Teal'C goes to stand up, being stopped
by Bra'Tac. The weapon explodes.
(Yelling while he struggles with Bra'Tac)
The weapon explodes and falls to the ground.
Cheyenne Mountain daytime
(He has a bag, walking with Sam) So
that's it?? You're just giving up??
Closing down shop?
Well, at least until we find out a way
to defend ourselves against this sort
of thing, yeah.
It shouldn't take *you* long.
Yeah, right. (They smile) I thought
you'd be happy.
Hey, I never said we shouldn't use the
stargate. (They stop and look at each
other) (Smiles) Well, (Overs her his
hand which she takes) um ... Let me
know if I could help.
I will, thanks. (She kisses him on the
cheek, he looks surprised) . ;)>
(In reference to the kiss) That means
you don't hate me.
Maybe ... too bad for you.
(Walking away from him, a HUGE smile
on her face) I was more attracted to
you when I did.
Really?? Right ... (Walks away)
(Clearing out his office) Colonel ...
I'm glad you're OK.
Thank you. Sir.
You know, the President wants to see
you in person?
Yes, we spoke on my way here.
You can have any assignment you want.
Actually, I've always wanted to command
my own boat.
For the Navy?
Or something a little smaller ... with
You deserve it, Jack.
(In reference the a lamp that he's fidgeting
with) You sure you want to take this
with you, Sir?
We're closed for business. I was supposed
to retire five years ago. We don't know
how long it's going to be before we
can reestablish the Stargate Program,
Actually, I just meant, it says (Reading
from bottom of lamp) 'Property of US
Air Force ' on it.
(Smiles and takes the lamp, putting
it in his box) (A minute later) Yeah,
I still feel responsible for the teams
stuck off-world. but there's nothing
we can d --- (Telephone rings) (He picks
it up) Hammond. (To Jack) We're receiving
(alerts the 2 officers in the control
room) What's up?
(Into his microphone) Go ahead. They're
(Over radio) GeneralHammond ...
SAM & JACK
O'Neill! It is good to hear you as well
... The weapon being used by Anubis
has been destroyed, but we feared it
was too late for the Tauri.
Yeah, it was close there for a minute.
We approach in a cargo ship ... request
permission to land.
NORAD 's aware of their approach, Sir.
Permission granted! Welcome back, Teal'C!
(The beaming proud papa!) It is, in
fact, Ry'Ac, who deserves the honour.
(Ry'Ac is shown next to his father alive
A good shot of the cargo ship flying into Earth is shown.
The gate is shown being lowered into place. (So they finally
with have the seventh symbol that they show on the computer match
the gate , the original Giza gate is in the SGC now, the Antarctic
gate was destroyed.;))
Sir, if you don't mind me asking ...
what exactly did we give the Russians?
Good 'ole American Dollars, Major.
(Disbelieving) You're kidding!
And the plans for the X-302 & X-303.
(Rolls his eyes And one other thing ...
(To Ry'Ac) So I hear you're a pretty
Master Bratac taught me well. I hope
to be good as my father one day.
Just know that no one is THAT good.
It also helps to be lucky.
Don't I know that! Listen, are you sure
you don't wanna stick around for a little
while, maybe hang out?
Ry'Ac has chosen to help Bra'Tac spread
the word of our cause.
Well, it's good to see you again. (Shakes
Teal'C looks at his son, and they shake hands, then Teal'C pulls
him into a hug.
(Jack is walking down the hall) Colonel!
Colonel ... have you got a moment?
Carter told me everything you did to
help out. We all appreciate it, thanks
alot. See you later. (Passes his card
to open the elevator)
Colonel ... Dr. Jackson is gone.
Yeah, I noticed that.
Not a day goes by when I don't think
about what happened. I stood by and
watched while he saved my people from
disaster. It should have been me who
jumped thru the glass, (Jack looks pissed)
disarmed the device, and he's gone because
I didn't. You have to live with that,
so do I.
You want me to make you feel better?
It wasn't your fault. I don't blame
If I could go back and change what happened,
I would do that. (Jack presses the button
again) But I can't. All I can do is
try to change what happens from now
on. I don't want you to exonerate me.
I just want to be given the opportunity
to prove that I can make a difference.
The door finally opens, and Jack steps in the elevator, closing
it without saying a word. Jonas looks disappointed, and walks
down the hall.
(Knocking on hammond's door) You wanted
to see me, Sir?
I know this is not what you wanted to
heard, but part of the deal to get the
Stargate from the Russians involved
agreeing to let one of their officers
(Looks disgusted) This is the thanks
I get for saving the world again?
I'm sorry, Jack. You're going to have
to learn to live with this.
Sir, can't we just throw them a bone?
Give them their own unit. They'd be
happy with that, wouldn't they?
What about SG-1?
Actually, General ... I've already chosen
our new team member.
Sam , Jack and Teal'C are on the ramp preparing to go thru the
(Coming in the room) Good luck, Colonel!
Thank you, Sir.
Jonas comes running in, wearing the same green fatigues as the
rest, but instead of a baseball hat, he's wearing a helmet!
How do I look? >
Uh ... you might want to lose the helmet
. (Jack looks at her, and motions 'No'
with his hands.)
Good guess on the green.
SG-1, you have a go.
Thank you, Sir.
They line up on the gate. Jonas puts on his baseball hat. Jack
smiles at Jonas, and they walk up the ramp then thru the gate
