                                  "THE ENEMY WITHIN"

                                           By

                                      Brad Wright




               Briefing Room.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Gentlemen, these planets designated 
                         P3A-575 and P3A-577 have been submitted 
                         by Captain Carter's team as possible 
                         destinations for your next mission. 
                         SG units 1 and 2 will operate concurrently.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         You know, I'm kind of partial to P3A-575 
                         if you don't mind taking P3A-577.
 
                         
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         No I'll take 577.

               
                                     JACK
                         I'm not married to it.

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         No, no it's.

               
                                     JACK
                         I want to be fair about it. How about 
                         we flip for it?
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         How about you go where I tell you. As 
                         far as I'm concerned.
 
               
               
               
               The klaxons go off.

                                     KAWALSKY
                         Damn those Goa'uld's are persistent.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         I think we pissed them off.

               
                                     WALTER
                         Closing the iris.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Alert! All defence teams stand by. Set 
                         the base auto destruct countdown at 
                         3 minutes.
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         We're not going anywhere as long as 
                         the Goa'uld keep up these attacks.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         They can't keep them up forever. Can 
                         they?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Whoa!

               
                                     SAM
                         Once they realise our Gate's inpenetrable 
                         they should just give up.
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Part of me just wants to let them through. 
                         Give them the fight they're looking 
                         for.
 
               
               
               
               The Gate deactivates

               
               
               
                                     WALTER
                         Radiation team, move in.

               
                                     JACK
                         Well there have got to be worse ways 
                         to go, I suppose.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         You don't think the Goa'uld are sending 
                         people through do you?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         It would be like bugs on a windshield.
 
                         
               
                                     WALTER
                         Team reports all clear, sir.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         All right, stand down from alert and 
                         abort the countdown.
 
               
               
               
               Kawalsky seems unwell

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Kawalsky. What's the matter?

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Headache. Took a fistful of aspirin 
                         but nothing helps.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Get down to the infirmary. Get it checked 
                         out. Go on.
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Sir, I think I'll do that. Sir, with 
                         your permission?
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         By all means Major, I need you to lead 
                         your team to P3575.
 
               
                                     WALTER
                         Inbound traveller! Inbound traveller!
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Reset the countdown. Here we go again. 
                         All defence teams remain in position.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         So this iris is gonna hold right?

               
                                     SAM
                         Pure titanium. Less than three micrometers 
                         from the event horizon. It won't even 
                         allow matter to fully re-integrate.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         : So this iris is gonna hold, right?
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         If it doesn't, the failsafe device will 
                         detonate, this whole mountain will vaporise 
                         and there'll be nothing to worry about.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Good, I feel much better.

               Hammond's Office

               
               
               
                                     HAMMOND

               Jack enters the room

               
               
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         I can understand how Kawalsky feels. 
                         This job gives me a headache too.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         What's the bad news General?

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Not much for small talk are you Colonel?
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         How was your weekend? Get any fishing 
                         in?
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         I'm rejecting your request to have Teal'c 
                         join SG-1. Wasn't my choice. A Colonel 
                         Kennedy is en route from the Pentagon 
                         right now. He'll be asking your friend 
                         some questions.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         What kind of questions?

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         What we're up against. Troop strength, 
                         technology, weaponry.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         I'd like to know the answers to those 
                         questions too, sir. But after they're 
                         done asking them..
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         There'll be more questions. Possible 
                         tests. After all he's carrying the larval 
                         form of a hostile, a very formidable 
                         enemy, inside his body.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         What kind of tests are we talking about?
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Maybe you haven't noticed Colonel. But 
                         he's the first alien species we've actually 
                         run into. You don't think that qualifies 
                         your friend as a subject of scientific 
                         interest?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Subject?

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         He is what he is Colonel.

               
                                     JACK
                         With all due respect Sir, I don't think 
                         he saved the lives of my team or came 
                         over to our side so he could become 
                         a damn guinea pig for US military intelligence.
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Back up Colonel. He switched sides once. 
                         Are you 100% positive he won't switch 
                         back?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Yes Sir.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Well you're alone in that assertion. 
                         Colonel Kennedy arrives within the hour. 
                         I promise Teal'c will be treated with 
                         dignity and respect for as long as he 
                         remains a guest of this facility. Beyond 
                         that, I can't promise a damn thing. 
                         Dismissed Colonel.
 
               
               
               
               Jack goes to see Teal'c, who is Kel'no'reeming

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Hey, am I interrupting anything?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Yes.

               
                                     JACK
                         Why don't I come back?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         The people from Chulak?

               
                                     JACK
                         We sent the last of them through the 
                         Gate just before the Goa'uld started 
                         knocking at the door.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Good.

               
                                     JACK
                         Thanks to you. So how long do you think 
                         they'll keep it up?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         One, perhaps two more attempts. They 
                         will believe their weapons have destroyed 
                         you. They will not send warriors through 
                         for some time to make sure of your destruction.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Well they'll be in for a surprise, huh?
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Your iris will be closed. They will 
                         be crushed.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Surprise.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Am I a prisoner?

               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I understand.

               
                                     JACK
                         We're not exactly living up to your 
                         expectations of us, are we? You see, 
                         Teal'c, we've been living alone in our 
                         little corner of the galaxy for awhile 
                         and I think the people I work for, just 
                         need to get to know you a little better. 
                         I mean your knowledge of the Goa'uld 
                         alone makes them a little curious.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I will give that knowledge freely.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah, I know you will and we'll put 
                         it to good use.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I will pledge my allegiance to this 
                         world.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         I'm just not sure that's ever going 
                         to be enough for them to trust you. 
                         To be honest with you, I think they're 
                         scared of you.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I understand.

               
                                     JACK
                         You must be used to that by now, huh?
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I am a jaffa. I have served as a warrior 
                         for your enemy. I have carried your 
                         enemy within me.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah. Well it's kind of a human thing. 
                         We tend to be afraid of things we don't 
                         know.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Why are you not afraid?

               
                                     JACK
                         Teal'c, I saw you stand up to a God 
                         and refuse to kill. I saw you make that 
                         decision.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Yes.

               
                                     JACK
                         In that moment I learned everything 
                         I needed to know to trust you.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         If I had killed you then, I would not 
                         be here now.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Neither would I.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I will prove my allegiance O'Neill.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Teal'c, I sure wish you didn't have 
                         to.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         When I do? You will show me this world?
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Oh you bet. Just not all at once though. 
                         It's big.
 
               
               
               
               Kawalsky is in the infirmary

               
               
               
                                     DOCTOR
                         And these headaches Major, they started 
                         when you came back from your last mission?
 
                         
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Yeah and they've been getting worse.
 
                         
               
                                     DOCTOR
                         Anybody else on the team experience 
                         these symptoms?
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         No. Why?

               
                                     DOCTOR
                         It could be a reaction to Gate travel.
 
                         
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Look Doc, just give me a horse pill 
                         for the pain, or something. It's a damn 
                         headache.
 
               
               
               
               There seems to be a lump on the back of Kawalsky's neck

               
               
               
                                     DOCTOR
                         What's this? You didn't notice this?
 
                         
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         What? Notice what?

               
               
               
               Kawalksy has a symbiote inside him. His eyes begin to glow and 
               he grabs the doctor, breaking his neck.

                         So the device should be on every planet 
                         we find. I studied the one on Abydos 
                         for months. It's sort of like a..
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Telephone.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I like that. In order to get back home 
                         all you have to do is dial Earth. Which 
                         is what we're here to talk about so. 
                         What is Major Kawalsky doing in the 
                         embarkation room?
 
               
               
               
               Kawalsky is standing on the ramp , in front of the gate.

                         Colonel O'Neill and General Hammond 
                         to the embarkation room, now!
 
               
               
               
               In the gateroom, Jack and Hammond enter as Sam and Daniel stand 
               near Kawalsky.

                         Charlie?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Major Kawalsky?

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Jack? What am I doing here?

               
               Jack takes him to the infirmary

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Hey, we gotta a sick man here! Was the 
                         Doctor here before?
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         I don't remember.

                         Sorry, Dr Nimziki was supposed to be 
                         on call. Dr Warner, Chief Surgeon. What's 
                         the problem?
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Headache.

               
                                     JACK
                         Little more than a headache, Doc. He 
                         just had a blackout.
 
               
                                     WARNER
                         We'll do an MRI right away. See what's 
                         going on in there.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Take care of him, Doc. We need him.

                         Thank you.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Welcome Teal'c. This is Colonel Kennedy.
 
                         
               
                                     KENNEDY
                         I'm extraordinarily pleased to meet 
                         you, sir.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Colonel Kennedy's job is to gather information,knowledge, 
                         about our potential enemies.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I offer my knowledge of the Goa'ulds. 
                         I offer myskills as a warrior in defeating 
                         them. I pledge my honour and my life 
                         to this world.
 
               
                                     KENNEDY
                         Well thank you.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         This is just an informal meeting, son. 
                         Take a seat.
 
               
                                     KENNEDY
                         I have a lot of questions to ask so 
                         if there are no objections. What can 
                         you tell us about the power source the 
                         Goa'uld use to power their weapons, 
                         ships?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Nothing.

               
                                     KENNEDY
                         I see. Do you yourself have an understanding 
                         of the physics behind the Stargate?
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         No.

               
                                     KENNEDY
                         I see.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Knowledge of Goa'uld magic is forbidden.
 
                         
               
               Jack enters the room

               
                                     JACK
                         It's not magic Teal'c. They just want 
                         you tothink that. Permission to barge 
                         in Sir?
 
               
                                     KENNEDY
                         Colonel O'Neill. I was hoping to meet 
                         you. Your mission report from Chulak 
                         made for the most engrossing analysis 
                         of my career.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Well thanks. What was your favourite 
                         part?
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Perhaps now is not the time Colonel?
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         General, you know what I went and did? 
                         I told Teal'c how we all respect a persons 
                         rights in this country.
 
               
                                     KENNEDY
                         I assure you, there is nothing untoward 
                         taking place here, Colonel. Please, 
                         join us.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Thank you. Hey Teal'c.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         O'Neill.

               
                                     JACK
                         That's Teal'c with an apostrophe. T- 
                         E- A- L, apostrophe, C.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Colonel.

               
                                     JACK
                         Yes sir.

               
                                     KENNEDY
                         Very well, Teal'c. What can you tell 
                         me about the Goa'ulds?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         They rule by force. Their numbers were 
                         very few but theyare growing.
 
               
                                     KENNEDY
                         How many worlds do they control?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Many hundreds. Perhaps more.

               
                                     KENNEDY
                         And should we expect to encounter these 
                         Goa'ulds everywhere we go?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         It is possible. But there are many more 
                         worlds the Goa'ulds have no use for. 
                         On those worlds the people are abandoned 
                         and left to fend for themselves.
 
               
                                     KENNEDY
                         Is there a leadership or Government 
                         with which we could negotiate a peace.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Some, like Apophis, are great Kings 
                         and rule over manyworlds as their Gods 
                         but they have no need for peace. If 
                         they could kill you, they would.
 
               
                                     KENNEDY
                         Could they? They have spacecraft, right?
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Yes. Without a Stargate, such a journey 
                         would take many months, perhaps even 
                         years. It would take many vessels, many 
                         slave armies.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         We're not that much of a nuisance, just 
                         yet.
 
               
                                     KENNEDY
                         These slaves, where do they come from?
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         There is a tale of a primitive world 
                         the Goa'uld discovered millenia ago. 
                         The Tau'ri. The First World where forms 
                         of this type first evolved. It is said 
                         the Goa'uld harvested among the primitives,
 
                         
               some became Goa'uld hosts, others became jaffa, the rest were 
               taken as slaves and seeded among the stars to serve them. But 
               that world has been lost for centuries.
 
               
                                     KENNEDY
                         Teal'c, beings of this form evolved 
                         here on Earth.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         This world..?

               
                                     JACK
                         Is the world you're talking about Teal'c. 
                         Ra came here. If our ancestors hadn't 
                         rebelled and buried the Stargate...
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         You would not have become strong enough 
                         to challenge them.
 
               
                                     KENNEDY
                         Then the galaxy is populated by the 
                         ancient people of Earth.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         There could be millions by now.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Then you are their greatest hope. And 
                         mine.
 
               
               Infirmary

               
               Sam and Daniel come out of an elevator

               
                                     SAM
                         I'm gonna drop by the Control room. 
                         By the silence around here, it seems 
                         as if the Goa'ulds have finally given 
                         up. When was the last time you slept?
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I don't know.

               
                                     SAM
                         Doesn't help when the whole base goes 
                         on alert every two hours.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         No it's not that, it's just that my 
                         mind races and I can't stop thinking 
                         about Sha're, where she is, what she's 
                         become.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         But you can't stay awake forever.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I can try.  No, you're right, I'll meet 
                         you at the next briefing.
 
               
               
               
               Daniel goes into a room and sit's on the bottom bunk. A hand 
               drops down from the top one.
 
               
               In the infirmary, Dr Warner finds a symbiote wrapped around kawalsky's 
               brain stem
 
               
               
               
                                     WARNER
                         All right.Major Kawalsky? We're all 
                         done here but I'm taking you off active 
                         duty as of now. Major?
 
               
               
               
               Kawalsky's eye's glow and the Doctor presses the alarm button
 
               
               
               He goes to the control room and begins dialling the gate. Sam 
               enters the room
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Kawalsky, what the hell are you doing?
 
                         
               
               He throws her across the room. She get's up and hit's the loudspeaker
 
               
               
               
               
                                     SAM
                         Close the blast doors. Emergency in 
                         the Control Room! Emergency in the Control 
                         Room!
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Help me!

               
                                     JACK
                         Kawalsky!

               
               Kawalsky grabs Sam and backs away

               
                                     JACK
                         Don't shoot! Don't shoot, don't shoot.
 
                         
               
               
               
               He takes her into an elevator

               
               
               
                                     SAM
                         You know they won't let you out of this 
                         mountain alive? When those doors open, 
                         they'll shoot on sight. You know that!
 
                         
               
               She tries to get to the phone, but he throws her against the 
               wall

                         What the...?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Someone inside the elevator hit the 
                         emergency stop.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Get those doors open!

               
                                     JACK
                         Get them open.

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Well it's about time. Gimme a hand here.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Charlie, what the hell's going on?
 
                         
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         I don't have a clue, Colonel, but she's 
                         hurt bad. We have to get her to the 
                         infirmary.
 
               
               Infirmary

               
                                     WARNER
                         The parasite's wrapped around his spine.
 
                         
               
               Kawalsky is strapped to a bed

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         It's a Goa'uld. Probably an infant.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         They think that the reason it hasn't 
                         been able to take you over completely 
                         is it's not mature yet.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         It's what's causing your blackouts.
 
                         
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         What are you saying? I got one of those 
                         parasites in me? Well how in the hell 
                         does that happen?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         We were kinda hoping you could tell 
                         us. You didn't feel it happening?
 
                         
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         No.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         When was the first time you blacked 
                         out?
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         I was here. We'd just come back through 
                         from Chulak. I thought it was just coming 
                         back through the Stargate. We were helping 
                         that kid, Casey was his name. It was 
                         a sharp... oh god Jack. I thought I wrenched 
                         my neck. Anyway, Casey, he was all right, 
                         they took him out of there. Oh god, 
                         Jack, you gotta help me. You gotta get 
                         this thing out of me.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         That's the plan.

               
               Hammond talks to the Doctor

               
                                     WARNER
                         I've taken Major Kawalsky off all pain 
                         medication to increase his alertness. 
                         It should increase his ability to resist.
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         When can you remove it?

               
                                     WARNER
                         It would be an extremely complex operation. 
                         The parasite has literally woven itself 
                         around his nervous system.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Can it be done or not?

               
                                     WARNER
                         Without killing him, possibly. Without 
                         making him a quadraplegic, that's a 
                         whole different story.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         You just tell me who you need to assist. 
                         Anyone in the world. I'll have them 
                         here within 24 hours.
 
               
                                     WARNER
                         Yes sir.

               
               Jack and Daniel talk to Kawalsky

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         When I was out, did I hurt anybody?
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         There's one man dead. A few more hurt.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Captain Carter's gonna be all right. 
                         I was just gonna check on her actually.
 
                         
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Oh I didn't mean to..

               
                                     DANIEL
                         No, she doesn't blame you.

               
                                     JACK
                         You're not responsible Charlie. It's 
                         not your fault. It's that damn thing 
                         that's inside of you. Look, as soon 
                         as they know how to do it, they'll cut 
                         it out of you. Right now, you got to 
                         fight it.
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         I don't mind telling you, this is scaring 
                         me big time.

                                     KENNEDY
                         Teal'c, stand and face this way please.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         What is the emergency? They would not 
                         tell me.
 
               
                                     KENNEDY
                         That's none of your concern now.

               
                                     JACK
                         Kawalsky's become infected with a Goa'uld.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         And you wish to see if I still carry 
                         the Goa'uld within me?
 
               
                                     KENNEDY
                         Yes, now, please.

               
               Teal'c show's them his symbiote

               
                                     JACK
                         God, I hate those things. Have you seen 
                         enough?
 
               
                                     KENNEDY
                         You understand we had to look and see?
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         What are its demands?

               
                                     JACK
                         So far it's only managed to rear its 
                         butt ugly head whenever Kawalsky blacks 
                         out. But it's already killed a man.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Then there will be a struggle for the 
                         host body. It must have sought a host 
                         in desperation before it was mature.
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         We intend to remove it before that happens.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         It will kill the host if you try. Once 
                         it is one with the host, it is capable 
                         of killing him.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         So, what do we do?

                                     JACK
                         Charlie, we got General Hammond for 
                         you.
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         General, please. You gotta tell them 
                         to do something. The pain is too much.
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         We are, Major. You just have to hold 
                         on.
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Now don't you give me that good soldier 
                         crap, General. You order them to cut 
                         this damn thing out of me!
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Teal'c says if they do that you might 
                         die.
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         I don't care!

               
                                     JACK
                         Look Charlie. They want to talk to it.
 
                         
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         What! What the hell is there to talk 
                         about?!
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         We must offer it life to save yours.
 
                         
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         No! No! I want you to kill it!

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         We must talk to the Goa'uld within you.
 
                         
               
                                     KAWALSKY

                         Charlie, just let them do their job 
                         will ya?

                         No! Don't let them do this, Jack! I 
                         want you to kill it!
 
               
                                     WARNER
                         His heart rate just doubled.

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Kill it! Kill it! Kill it! Kill it! 
                         Kill it!
 
               
               The Goa'uld takes over

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Nemes Kree! I won't speak to the traitor. 
                         You are their leader?
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         I am.

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Speak.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         I'm General George Hammond of the United 
                         States Air Force. Commander-in-Chief 
                         of the SGC. And you are?
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Interested only in returning through 
                         the Stargate. Now!
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         You are in no position to make demands. 
                         I have a proposition.
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Release me now or I will destroy you!
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         If you leave this man's body, we will 
                         allow you to live and send you back 
                         through the Stargate in your natural 
                         form.
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         This body is mine!

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         If you are unwilling to leave we will 
                         be forced to surgically...
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Teal'c! Hold him!

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Release me now or I will destroy you!
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Do not attempt to escape!

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         I command you!

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         We will open fire! Colonel, stand aside!
 
                         
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Release me now!

               
               The Goa'uld is subdued and Kawalsky returns

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Don't shoot!

               
                                     JACK
                         Don't shoot!

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Hold your fire!

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Oh, oh God!

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         It's all right, son. I won't put you 
                         through that again.
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Oh Jack, what did I do?

               
                                     JACK
                         Nothing, you just got a little mouthy. 
                         Nothing serious.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Dr Warner? I want to know the minute 
                         that godforsaken thing can be taken 
                         out if my officer. Is that clear?
 
                         
               
                                     WARNER
                         Yes sir.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         This conversation is over.

               
               Briefing room

               
               
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         As you were people. In light of the 
                         day's events, Colonel Kennedy has chosen 
                         to make certain recommendations to my 
                         superiors that I want to share with 
                         all of you. Colonel Kennedy?
 
               
                                     KENNEDY
                         I know that many of you have served 
                         with Major Kawalsky so please forgive 
                         me if what I am about to suggest appears 
                         in any callous. But I believe surgical 
                         removal of the parasite may be a mistake.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         General, this is a waste of time Kawalsky 
                         does not have.
 
               
                                     KENNEDY
                         Dr Warner, what are Major Kawalsky's 
                         chances of surviving this procedure?
 
                         
               
                                     WARNER
                         10. 12% at most.

               
                                     KENNEDY
                         And the parasite? It is an intelligent 
                         being after all, isn't it Colonel? I 
                         believe I first read that in your report.
 
                         
               
                                     WARNER
                         The parasite itself would not survive 
                         the procedure.
 
               
                                     KENNEDY
                         So, we're faced with destroying one 
                         life in the hopeless attempt to save 
                         another. You see the ethical dilemma?
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         No, I don't.

               
                                     WARNER
                         My team and I are completely prepared 
                         to perform the procedure, sir. We'll 
                         do our best.
 
               
                                     KENNEDY
                         Of course you will Doctor. Please don't 
                         misunderstand. We all wish the invading 
                         parasite in Major Kawalsky's body could 
                         be safely removed. The facts are the 
                         facts.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         I'm sorry, what was your point?

               
                                     KENNEDY
                         If we proceed with this operation, Major 
                         Kawalsky will have died in vain.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         And if we don't?

               
                                     KENNEDY
                         Well let's consider that for a moment. 
                         These infant Goa'uld's, they're so young, 
                         so fragile in their larval state that 
                         they require a.. I'm sorry what was 
                         it you called yourself?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Jaffa.

               
                                     KENNEDY
                         For want of a better translation, a 
                         what? Incubator? How is it they are 
                         so intelligent?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         A Goa'uld is born with all the knowledge 
                         of all Goa'uld's that came before it.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Genetic memory. That's amazing.

               
                                     KENNEDY
                         Yes it is. All the knowledge of the 
                         Goa'uld. I just want you all to think 
                         on that before we just throw it away.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         I've thought about it. You thought about 
                         it? I think we've all thought about 
                         it. Any more thinking to be done.
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Colonel.

               
                                     KENNEDY
                         Imagine if we could convince that Goa'uld 
                         to share that knowledge.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         A Goa'uld would not willingly share.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Teal'c is right. To them, we're nothing. 
                         Less than nothing, I mean think about 
                         it, they've taken on the roles of our 
                         ancient gods. What does that tell you?
 
                         
               
                                     KENNEDY
                         All right. What if we just studied it? 
                         How much could we learn from that? What 
                         if we just faced up to the fact that 
                         Major Kawalsky's slim chances of survival 
                         and realise that the greatest enemy 
                         mankind may ever face has just been 
                         delivered right to our doorstep. Even 
                         if we let it return through the Stargate 
                         as a gesture of good faith. How much 
                         could...?
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Just what kind of an officer are you 
                         Colonel?! As long as there is a snowball's 
                         chance in hell that my officer will 
                         come out of this procedure alive, we'll 
                         go ahead with it.
 
               
                                     KENNEDY
                         With respect General, I feel I should 
                         take this to my superiors.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Me, I'll probably just call the President 
                         and get approval right from the horse's 
                         mouth. But sure, you go right ahead 
                         Colonel. Talk to your superiors. In 
                         the meantime people, let's get the job 
                         done.
 
               
               
               
               Back in the Infirmary. Tests are being carried out on Teal'cs

                         Do you have any sense the new anaesthetic 
                         is working better than the last one 
                         we tried?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Yes.

                         But your not sure? There's no communication 
                         at all between you and the symbiote?
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         A jaffa does not communicate with the 
                         Goa'uld it carries.
 
               
                                     WARNER
                         Well keep your fingers crossed. Nurse, 
                         you can stop this IV and release the 
                         patient, we'll go with this one.
 
               
               Jack is talking to Kawalsky

               
                                     JACK
                         They're getting ready.

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         It's about time.

               
                                     JACK
                         How's the pain?

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Maybe I'm just getting used to it. Listen 
                         Jack, if this doesn't work...
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Hey, come on, it's a cake walk.

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         It hurts to talk, will you shut up for 
                         a second? I wanna be cremated. I don't 
                         want there to be anything left of that 
                         thing inside me. You make sure, all 
                         right?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Look, can we not talk about this?

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         When am I gonna talk about it Jack, 
                         this could be my last conversation?
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Oh for crying out loud, it's not your 
                         last conversation.
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Hey, I spoke to the Doc, he told me 
                         the odds. Don't give me any crap.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Okay, it's our last conversation.

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Your gonna be off on some other planet 
                         anyway.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah,P3A575.

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Whatever. This was gonna be my first 
                         real command. I was looking forward 
                         to it.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         You still can, Charlie.

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         They got me all tied up here. Give me 
                         your hand.  I want you to know, no matter 
                         what happens, it was an honour to serve 
                         with you.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Listen, I gotta ask you something. It's 
                         not easy for me.
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         We're friends.

               
                                     JACK
                         If you don't make it, can I have your 
                         stereo? What?
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         It hurts to laugh.

               
                                     JACK
                         You all right?

               
                                     KAWALSKY

                         I've held back on the use of anaesthetic 
                         until it can be administered to both 
                         patient and creature simultaneously. 
                         Major Kawalsky, we're going to begin 
                         the operation.

                         I wanna say something. General Hammond, 
                         sir.

                         I'm here son.

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         If this doesn't work, I want you to 
                         give the order. I wanna wake up as me 
                         or not at all.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND

                         All right. Start the clock. I'm making 
                         the first incision. Separating the primary 
                         ganglia attaching the parasite to the 
                         spinal cord now. It's coming away more 
                         easily than I'd hoped. Must be the anaesthetic.

                         That's fantastic. If we can reverse 
                         what's happened to the Major, then there's 
                         still a chance for Sha're.

                         The ganglia are still constricting periodically. 
                         Obviously there still seems to be some 
                         sign of life in this symbiote. I don't 
                         know how. Scissors.

                         and into the brain. I'm going to sever

                         anything I did. I'd like to proceed.

                         out now. I think we did it. Close for

                         might have been a failure? I think we 
                         owe him something for that.
 
               
                                     KENNEDY
                         Unfortunately, Teal'c is now carrying 
                         the only living Goa'uld available for 
                         study and we do need to study it, sir, 
                         make no mistake on that. These aliens 
                         are possibly the greatest threat this 
                         country has ever known.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         I'm well aware of the threat, Colonel. 
                         This facility is the front line. It's 
                         the reason this command exists. We just 
                         go about things differently around here.
 
                         
               
                                     KENNEDY
                         I see, well, I'll make the transport 
                         arrangements in the morning.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         You do that.

               
               
               
               
               
               Jack and Daniel go to see Kawalsky in the infirmary

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Anyway, Colonel Kennedy's probably gonna 
                         want to take it with him so if you wanna 
                         see it once before....
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Are you talking about that thing in 
                         my head?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Daniel thinks it's fascinating.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         No, I just thought you might wanna see 
                         it.
 
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Nooo, thanks.

               
               Sam enters.

               
                                     SAM
                         Hey, I just heard. They're shipping 
                         Teal'c out to Langley. Kennedy's taking 
                         him with him.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         What?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         What for?

               
                                     SAM
                         Study. That's Kennedy's word.

               
                                     JACK
                         Right. Like a damn lab rat. Apparently 
                         Kennedy's ethics are selective.
 
               
               Jack and Daniel leave

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Listen, in case the Colonel can't talk 
                         him out of it, I'd like a minute alone 
                         with Teal'c before they ship him out. 
                         He helped get me through this. I gotta 
                         thank him.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Okay, I think that can be arranged.
 
                         
               
               
               
               Teal'c is taken to see Kawalsky.

               
               
               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Hey, come on over here. Let me shake 
                         hands with the man who helped save my 
                         life. I'd like a minute alone with my 
                         friend. I'll make it an order, does 
                         that make you feel better?
 
               
               Kawalsky's eyes glow and he grabs Teal'cs throat

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Jaffa! What they removed was merely 
                         a dead husk. I had already become one 
                         with the host. I give you this chance: 
                         Serve me and you may live.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I will not.

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Then die.

               
               He chokes Teal'c and leaves the infirmary

               
               Hammond's office.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Colonel, I'm doing everything I can.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         So because he wasn't born on this particular 
                         planet, he doesn't have any rights any 
                         more, is that it.
 
               
               Kawalsky enters the control room and proceeds to dial the gate
 
               
               
                                     WALTER
                         Major?

               
               He hits him

               
                                     WALTER
                         Arrghh! Arghh!

               
               
               
               Teal'c leaves the infirmary

               
                                     WARNER
                         What happened?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         The Goa'uld has won. It's taken control 
                         of him.
 
               
                                     WARNER
                         How?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         It deceived us.

               
               
               
               Teal'c is standing in front of the gate

               
                                     KAWALSKY
                         Jaffa! Kal Shak!

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         You cannot pass.

               
               Jack and Hammond appear in the control room

               
                                     JACK
                         What?

               
                                     WALTER
                         He set the co-ordinates for Chulak.
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         He set the auto destruct sequence on 
                         the failsafe.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         How'd he have the code?

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         I don't know but I need two ranking 
                         officers to override and you're it.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         All right that did it. Open the blast 
                         doors.
 
               
               Teal'c is holding Kawalsky against the wormhole.

               
                                     JACK
                         Teal'c! Hold him there!

               
               Teal'c pushes him halfway into the event horizon.

               
                                     JACK
                         Shut it down! Now!

               
               The gate shut's down and the body of Kawalsky falls to the ground.
 
               
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         He was your friend.

               
                                     JACK
                         My friend died on the table.

               
               
               
               
               
               Sam and Daniel walk to the gateroom

               
                                     SAM
                         If anything, the fact that he knew how 
                         to set the auto destruct code proves 
                         there's hope for Sha're and Skaara.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         How?

               
                                     SAM
                         Cos only Kawalsky could have known that 
                         code.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         So something of the host must survive?
 
                         
               
               Hammond's Office

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Oh absolutely. That's good to hear. 
                         Oh anytime Sir, you just come on down, 
                         we'd be glad to have you. Well hell 
                         Sir, he's right here, why don't you 
                         tell him yourself. I'm sure he'd like 
                         to hear it from you.
 
               
                                     KENNEDY
                         Yes Mr President? Yes Sir.

               
               Gateroom

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Colonel O'Neill. Is SG-1 ready to ship 
                         out?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         We are Sir.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Then you have a go for a standard recon 
                         mission on P3575.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Yes Sir.

               
               Teal'c walks into the gateroom

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Reporting as ordered.

               
                                     JACK
                         Sir. It's sir.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Sir.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Welcome aboard son.

               
                                     SAM
                         The MALP reports conditions on the planet 
                         are favourable,
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Well?

               
               They go through the Gate.
