                                      STARGATE SG1

                                      Episode 212

                                     "THE TOKRA 2"

                                           By

                                   Jonathan Glassner




               Garshaw goes to see SG1

               
               
                                     GARSHAW
                         You wish to see me?

               
                                     JACK
                         Daniel.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Garshaw, could you at least tell us 
                         why you've turned down our request for 
                         an alliance?
 
               
                                     GARSHAW
                         We have decided that your limited resources 
                         do not offer us enough of a reward to 
                         risk the high security breach that your 
                         knowledge of us will cause.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         That's it?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, at least allow us some time to 
                         try to find some technology, some skill, 
                         something that you don't have.
 
               
                                     GARSHAW
                         I'm sorry, I don't believe it exists.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         So we are prisoners. You've looking 
                         like Goa'uld to me.
 
               
                                     GARSHAW
                         We are doing this for your protection 
                         as well as ours. Knowledge of our whereabouts 
                         makes you and your world a priority 
                         target for the Goa'uld System Lords.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         We're already a priority target.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         They previously despatched two motherships 
                         to destroy us
 
               .

                                     SAM
                         There's another reason, isn't there? 
                         Something else bothers you about us.
 
                         
               
                                     GARSHAW
                         That is correct. None of you have volunteered 
                         to be a host to one of us who is dying! 
                         Now if you're so disgusted with the 
                         very thought of blending, how can we 
                         be associated with one another? I mean 
                         it is obvious that you have distaste 
                         for our very being.
 
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         No, it is simply a lack of understanding. 
                         We have no hatred for you at all.
 
                         
               
                                     GARSHAW
                         Then be a host to Selmak.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well I wish I could say I was okay with 
                         that, but.
 
               
                                     GARSHAW
                         The very thought sickens you. There 
                         is nothing more to be said. There will 
                         be no alliance. You will remain here 
                         until we say otherwise.

               The two teams are still being held

               
               
               
               
                                     SAM
                         Colonel Makepeace? Did anyone tell you 
                         how far along my father is?
 
               
                                     MAKEPEACE
                         No, I was only told to get you back 
                         as soon as possible.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         He doesn't even know why I'm not there 
                         for him. He thinks I'm off somewhere 
                         working on some damn satellite dish 
                         or something.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         We're gonna get you back there Carter. 
                         The good news is, there's eight of us 
                         now.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         That's good news?

               
                                     JACK
                         Yes. More manpower.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Is this another one of your strange 
                         jokes, O'Neill?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Ah, no.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         It would be impossible. There is only 
                         one way out, via the rings. We would 
                         then have to elude hundreds of Tok'ra.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         I for one don't want to hurt any of 
                         them.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Look, I'm not too thrilled about hurting 
                         anyone either. But keep in mind these 
                         people wanna make you a host, and as 
                         I recall you said that whole 'Jolinar 
                         Goa'uld in the head deal was one of 
                         the worst things that ever happened 
                         to you!
 
               
                                     SAM
                         That's before I understood it better. 
                         If I wasn't fighting her and I knew 
                         what it meant for Jolinar to be a Tok'ra, 
                         it might have been, I don't know, enlightening. 
                         I need to see Garshaw!
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         What?

               
                                     SAM
                         What is the one thing that they need 
                         the most?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, hosts, which we can't give them.
 
                         
               
               Garshaw comes to see them, with Martouf

               
               
                                     GARSHAW
                         What is it?

               
                                     SAM
                         You said that the symbiote can cure 
                         most problems in a human.
 
               
                                     GARSHAW
                         Yes.

               
                                     MARTOUF
                         What is cancer?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         It's a disease in humans where the cells 
                         grow out of control, you get tumours.
 
                         
               
                                     GARSHAW
                         Oh yes, it's a common ailment amongst 
                         your species. We cure it all the time, 
                         it's no problem.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Colonel, I think we should at least 
                         try to offer it to my Dad?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         We might have a host for you.

               
                                     GARSHAW
                         You have a host for Selmak?

               
                                     SAM
                         Yes. My father. He's got cancer and 
                         if Selmak can save his life I think 
                         he'd be willing to try it.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         But you have to let us go back.

               
                                     GARSHAW
                         I will let two of you go. But the rest 
                         will remain to ensure that you will 
                         return.
 
               
               
               
               Sam and Jack go back to the SGC

               
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Colonel O'Neill, where's Colonel Makepeace, 
                         SG-3, they were supposed to extract 
                         only Captain Carter.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         General, we need to talk.

               
               
               
               Briefing Room

               
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Captain Carter, I am truly sorry about 
                         your father, but I have to question 
                         the wisdom of what you're suggesting 
                         here. From what I've seen, this won't 
                         exactly be saving his life. It'll be 
                         more like giving his body to a Goa'uld.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         No Sir, more like letting one share 
                         it.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Jacob knows a lot about Earth, about 
                         the US military. This would be like 
                         handing over that information to the 
                         Goa'uld.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         To the Tok'ra.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         You sure there's a difference?

               
                                     JACK
                         Oh yes Sir, there's a difference, believe 
                         me. I won't even pretend to understand 
                         what the difference is, but there is 
                         one. One minute you're talking to a 
                         Goa'uld, the next minute you're talking 
                         to a regular guy. Person.

                         Host.

               
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         How do you know it isn't just a trick? 
                         We've seen the Goa'uld speak as humans 
                         before.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Well General, if these were your everyday 
                         run of the mill greasy arsed Goa'uld, 
                         they would have made us their hosts 
                         already.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         They were holding you prisoner, Colonel. 
                         Still are holding SG-3 and the rest 
                         of your team!
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Only temporarily Sir. And they thought 
                         it was to protect us as much as them.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah, I didn't buy that one myself, 
                         Sir.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         General Hammond, please, I know my father 
                         would want to do this. He would have 
                         the opportunity to serve as the liaison 
                         between ourselves and possibly the most 
                         important ally we will ever have.

                                     TEAL'C
                         I would like to take this opportunity 
                         to express my admiration for your cause. 
                         It is both honourable and brave.
 
               
                                     GARSHAW
                         Thankyou Jaffa. I must say I feel the 
                         same about you. To break from Apophis 
                         and then turn to fight him shows great 
                         conviction of character.

                         Master Garshaw, we just received word 
                         from our scout in the Shoran'ka quadrant. 
                         The Goa'uld System Lords have been told 
                         where we are. They have dispatched two 
                         motherships.
 
               
                                     GARSHAW
                         When will they arrive?

               
                                     MARTOUF
                         Within the day, perhaps hours.

               
                                     GARSHAW
                         Start the evacuation!

               
               Sam goes to the hospital, to see Jacob

               
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Clear the room, people.

               
                                     JACOB
                         I told you not to recall her.

               
                                     SAM
                         Happy to see you too, Dad.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         You wanted me to tell you what Captain 
                         Carter does, so I thought maybe she 
                         could tell you herself.
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         Yeah? What happened to the classification?
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         It's still classified. But you just 
                         got clearance.
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         Why?

               
                                     SAM
                         Well, believe it or not, we need your 
                         help, Dad.
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         What? The Pentagon wants me to deliver 
                         a message to God when I get up there?
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Not exactly.

               
                                     JACOB
                         Well I don't plan to see the other guy.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Dad, have you ever heard of the Stargate 
                         program?
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         No, is that one of your sattellites?
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         I don't work with satellites, Dad, that 
                         was just a cover.
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         No kidding. I never would have guessed. 
                         So tell me, what do you do that's so 
                         great you don't want me to get you into 
                         the astronaut program?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Well, this is gonna be a lot for you 
                         to take in at once.
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         Stop beating around the bush. What do 
                         you do?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         I travel to other planets. Much farther 
                         away than any astronaut goes.
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         So you're not going to tell me the truth.
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         She is telling you the truth, Jacob.
 
                         
               
                                     JACOB
                         She goes to other planets. What, like 
                         in simulations?
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         No. In reality.

               
                                     SAM
                         We discovered a piece of alien technology. 
                         It can send us to thousands of planets 
                         all over the galaxy.
 
               
                                     JACOB

                                     SAM
                         No.

               
                                     JACOB
                         Holy Hannah! So what do you want me 
                         to do?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Well, we'd like you to travel to one 
                         of these planets with us.
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         Why? So I can die there?

               
                                     SAM
                         No. Actually, I'm hoping what we want 
                         you to do will cure your cancer.
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         They have a cure there? What's the catch?
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         It's a doozie, Jacob, I won't lie to 
                         you on that.

                         party or something.
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         You sure this is another planet? It 
                         looks like Earth.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Yeah, we figure the Stargate system 
                         was built specifically to transport 
                         humans or something close to humans 
                         in physiology. So it seems to go mostly 
                         to places where the environment supports 
                         human life.

                         Makepeace?

               
                                     MAKEPEACE
                         Alright airman, carry on.

                         What the heck's going on?

               
                                     MAKEPEACE
                         We're free.

               
                                     JACK
                         Then why are you still here?

               
                                     MAKEPEACE
                         Well, we wanna be allies, right, so 
                         we're lending a hand with the evacuation.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         What evacuation?

               
                                     MAKEPEACE
                         Come on, I'll explain as we go.

                         Dad, this is Teal'c. Teal'c, this my 
                         father.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         It is an honor.

                         This is where they've been stacking 
                         our stuff.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C

                         Direct translation, very cool.

               
                                     JACK
                         Okay, you wanna tell me what's going 
                         on now?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         They're evacuating so we're free to 
                         go.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Why?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         The System Lords are ready to attack. 
                         The Goa'uld motherships are on the way.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Oh.

               
               
               
               There are two motherships above the planet

               
               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Alright, where do we find Garshaw?
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         We last saw her in the council chamber.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Alright boys, let's go. Call if you 
                         need me.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Thanks.

                         You have returned.

               
                                     SAM
                         Yes. This is my father, Jacob Carter.

                         Honoured.

               
                                     MARTOUF
                         I am Martouf. You have a very special 
                         daughter.
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         Why does he talk like that?

               
                                     SAM
                         He's a Tok'ra Dad, I told you about 
                         them.
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         Oh, so these are the aliens you were 
                         telling me about?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Well, I don't know if I'd call them 
                         aliens, sort of half alien I guess. 
                         I mean, the outside is human, and the 
                         inside is shared between a human and 
                         a symbiote. Martouf is actually two 
                         different... souls, I guess, sharing 
                         the same body.
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         And that's what you want me to become. 
                         You gotta be kidding me.
 
               
               Jack, Daniel and Teal'c are walking through a tunnel

               
               
                                     JACK
                         So fill me in. How'd the System Lords 
                         find them?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         That is unknown.

               
                                     JACK
                         Are we talking about a spy here, or 
                         what?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, if that's the case, moving to 
                         another planet's not gonna do them much 
                         good.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Teal'c, you know those little tele-ball 
                         things?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         The long range visual communications 
                         device.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Right. How small do they make those?
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I have seen them small enough to fit 
                         in the palm of your hand.

                         I'm not sure I can do this Sam.

               
                                     LANTASH
                         No-one wishes to pressure you in any 
                         way, Sir. The decision is yours, but 
                         before deciding, might I suggest that 
                         you take a moment to get to know the 
                         symbiote that wishes to blend with you.

                         This is her?

               
                                     SAM
                         Actually, you can only see the host, 
                         the symbiote's inside her.
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         Inside her.

               
                                     SAM
                         Talk to her Dad, get to know her.

               
                                     SELMAK
                         If you agree to the blending, we could 
                         be together for a very long time.
 
                         
               
                                     JACOB
                         You don't look so good.

               
                                     SELMAK
                         You are no vision of beauty yourself, 
                         Sir!

                         I'm the one to whom you should be talking.

                         You are the one I'm talking to. Why, 
                         why did your voice change like that?
 
                         
               
                                     SAM

                                     SAROOSH
                         I am Saroosh. I am in the position to 
                         help you most.
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         How's that?

               
                                     SAROOSH
                         I will die, Selmak will live on, you 
                         will take my place as host.
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         Um, I don't understand.

               
                                     SAROOSH
                         Selmak is a wonderful Tok'ra, she is 
                         selfless and caring, she is good company, 
                         she has a wonderful sense of humour.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Well that's good Dad, you can sit around 
                         for hours cracking yourself up.
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         That's funny.

               
                                     SAROOSH
                         She's not far wrong. I've had almost 
                         two hundred years of laughter thanks 
                         to Selmak. I'm biased, of course, but 
                         I believe that Selmak is among the best 
                         educated of the Tok'ra. You will probably 
                         be overwhelmed by the knowledge and 
                         wisdom you will gain upon blending.

                         Then I won't deceive you, Sir, we have 
                         some pretty awful things buried in our 
                         memory.
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         Such as?

               
                                     SAROOSH
                         Memories of countless Goa'uld atrocities, 
                         the loss of the host before me, and 
                         you will feel the mourning for my loss.
 
                         
               
                                     JACOB
                         Will you excuse me ma'am?

               
               
               He runs out of the room

               
               
                                     JACOB
                         I'm sorry. I didn't want my future, 
                         I guess you could call her soulmate, 
                         to see me like this.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Dad, you don't have to do this.

               
                                     JACOB
                         Yes I do. My only other choice is death, 
                         and that's not acceptable. Look, don't 
                         worry, it's not just hearing all that 
                         stuff that made me lose my stomach, 
                         it's the chemo. And the trip through 
                         that damn Stargate thing.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         It's okay. This is a lot of weird information 
                         for anyone to take in at once. Trust 
                         me, I know.
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         Okay.

               
               
               Jack and the others speak to Garshaw

               
               
                                     JACK
                         Garshaw?

               
                                     GARSHAW
                         What can I do for you?

               
                                     JACK
                         I think you might have a spy in your 
                         ranks.
 
               
                                     GARSHAW
                         Nonsense, the Tok'ra are loyal for life!
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         How then were you located by the System 
                         Lords?
 
               
                                     GARSHAW
                         How did you find us?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well we did have a spy in our ranks.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Jolinar of Malkshur, through Captain 
                         Carter.
 
               
                                     GARSHAW
                         I suppose you know the name of the spy?
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         I've got a pretty good idea.

               
                                     GARSHAW
                         Who?

               
                                     JACK
                         Well, I don't wanna point fingers, but 
                         I'd keep my eye on Cordesh.
 
               
                                     GARSHAW
                         Cordesh? Why do you say that?

               
                                     JACK
                         You folks make a habit of walking around 
                         with those little teleball things, what 
                         are they?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         He speaks of a long range visual communications 
                         device.
 
               
                                     GARSHAW
                         We don't have those, we have no use 
                         for them. The system is not secure.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Well your buddy Cordesh has one.

               
                                     GARSHAW
                         Tok'ra kree! Tal shak Cordesh, kree!
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Better stay here.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         We'll stay here.

               
               
               The catch up with Cordesh

               
               
                                     GARSHAW
                         Cordesh, you must come with me and face 
                         questioning.
 
               
                                     CORDESH
                         I'm not what I appear to be! Cordesh 
                         is no longer! I couldn't stop him! I'm 
                         as guilty as he was!
 
               
                                     GARSHAW
                         You must leave the tunnel and explain 
                         yourself, Cordesh.
 
               
                                     CORDESH
                         I don't deserve to remain among the 
                         Tok'ra.
 
               
               He is absorbed by the tunnel

               
               
                                     JACK
                         Ouch.

               
               Back in Selmak's room

               
               
                                     JACOB
                         Okay, what do I have to do?

               
                                     MARTOUF
                         First, Selmak would like to interview 
                         you.
 
               
                                     SELMAK
                         If I am to spend the next hundred or 
                         more years with you as my host, do you 
                         not think I have the right to decide 
                         if I even like you?
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         What's not to like? Just ask my daughter, 
                         I'm a teddy bear.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Oh yeah, real teddy bear.

               
                                     SAROOSH
                         How do you feel about the Goa'uld?
 
                         
               
                                     JACOB
                         Well you're the first one I've met.
 
                         
               
                                     SAROOSH
                         I am not a Goa'uld.

               
                                     JACOB
                         Ah, trick question?

               
                                     SAM
                         Remember, Dad, I tried to explain the 
                         difference.
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         Right, right, I apologise. I guess I've 
                         never met a Goa'uld before. Although 
                         from what Sam and her people tell me, 
                         I don't think I like them much.
 
               
                                     SELMAK
                         Tell me, Sir, are you a good man?

               
                                     JACOB
                         You're kidding, right?

               
                                     SELMAK
                         No, we'll be spending the rest of our 
                         lives together.
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         Look, forgive me for being blunt, but 
                         you're dying, right?
 
               
                                     SELMAK
                         My host is, yes.

               
                                     JACOB
                         And you'll die with her unless you and 
                         I, what did you call it? Blend, right?
 
                         
               
                                     SELMAK
                         Yes.

               
                                     JACOB
                         And I'll die too, unless we do this. 
                         So my point is, good man, bad man, what 
                         difference does it make? We don't have 
                         a choice. And I don't mind telling you 
                         the whole idea scares the hell outta 
                         me. So can we just get it over with?
 
                         
               
                                     SELMAK
                         I have decided I like you.

               
                                     JACOB
                         Super.

               
                                     SELMAK
                         But I must be sure that you understand, 
                         there will be no turning back. I cannot 
                         blend with you, cure your disease, then 
                         leave. To do so would probably kill 
                         us both.
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         I understand. Let me ask you something 
                         though. After we do this, will I still 
                         be able to talk to my daughter?
 
               
                                     SELMAK
                         The way Saroosh talked to you, yes. 
                         But you and your daughter must understand, 
                         the blending may not work at all. I 
                         am very weak, and the damage to your 
                         body may be too extensive.
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         In other words, we might die anyway.
 
                         
               
                                     SELMAK
                         Yes.

               
                                     JACOB
                         Then can you give me five with my kid?

                         Of course.

               
                                     LANTASH
                         You must hurry, we don't have a lot 
                         of time.
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         Listen Sam, I was never good at this 
                         stuff.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Dad, you don't have to say anything.
 
                         
               
                                     JACOB
                         You gotta know one thing. How proud 
                         I am of you. I'm not good at saying 
                         these things enough.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         I think you just said it pretty well.
 
                         
               
                                     JACOB
                         Even when I thought you were this whizz 
                         satellite geek, I was proud. That's 
                         all I want to say.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Please Dad.

               
                                     JACOB
                         Hey, I know, I'm a pain in the arse. 
                         Maybe this Tok'ra lady will, sand off 
                         some of the rough edges. It might be 
                         a good thing, right?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Could be. The longer we wait the less 
                         chance there is.
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         Okay, what do I do?

               
               
               
               Jack speaks with Garshaw

               
               
                                     GARSHAW
                         Cordesh must be guilty of something 
                         or he would not have allowed himself 
                         to be buried.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         What, he had a choice?

               
                                     GARSHAW
                         I must thank you. You may have saved 
                         the Tok'ra a great many losses.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         You're welcome.

               
                                     GARSHAW
                         But, you still have nothing to offer 
                         us.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         What?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, actually, I think we do.

               
                                     JACK
                         We do?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, the one thing you need the most 
                         we can provide. Hosts.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Daniel.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, think about it, if it works for 
                         Sam's father, then there must be other 
                         people in similar situations.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         It's worth exploring.

               
                                     GARSHAW
                         It is.

               
               Jacob is lying on the bed with Saroosh

               
               
                                     MARTOUF
                         We do not enter our hosts through the 
                         back of the neck. This just leaves a 
                         scar that many of us find unsettling.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         So why don't the Goa'uld do it this 
                         way too?
 
               
                                     MARTOUF
                         They don't wish to remember the horror 
                         of their host's face whenever they see 
                         their own reflection in the mirror. 
                         You must step away, Captain Carter.
 
                         
               
                                     JACOB
                         Goodbye, kid. Now what?

               
                                     SELMAK
                         Kiss me.

               
                                     JACOB
                         You're kidding, right?

               
                                     SELMAK
                         No, I'm not.

               
               
               Jacob kisses her and the symbiote enters him. Saroosh dies

               
               
                                     SELMAK
                         Goodbye, dear friend.

               
                                     SAM
                         He's alive. Is he okay?

               
                                     MARTOUF
                         He's very sick. And Selmak is weak. 
                         She may not have the strength to heal 
                         him.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Well, is there anything we can do to 
                         help?
 
               
                                     MARTOUF
                         Nothing. Only time will tell.

               
                                     MALE TOKRA
                         Our scouts have spotted the Goa'uld 
                         ships dropping from hyperspace. They 
                         will start attacking from the air and 
                         through the 'gate within hours. Garshaw 
                         orders that we must destroy the complex.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         We need time! Can we move him?

               
                                     MARTOUF
                         If we do so if will kill them.

               
               
               
               Jack see's a Tokra female, who is carrying a box

               
               
                                     JACK
                         Scuse me.

               
                                     YOSUF
                         What are you doing?

               
                                     JACK
                         I'll apologise if I'm wrong. Cordesh 
                         had one of these.
 
               
               
               
               He finds a Goa'uld orb

               
               
                                     YOSUF
                         So there are two spies.

               
                                     JACK
                         Or not. Cordesh said he wasn't who he 
                         appeared to be.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Goa'uld can jump hosts to hide, much 
                         as Jolinar of Malkshur.
 
               
                                     YOSUF
                         Cordesh?

               
                                     TOKRA
                         The plague that is the Tok'ra will soon 
                         be wiped out!
 
               
                                     GARSHAW
                         I am sickened to think I once called 
                         you my friend, Cordesh, but I want you 
                         to know, the System Lords will fall, 
                         but you won't be alive to see it. Attempt 
                         to remove Cordesh from the host without 
                         harming her. Then put this traitor in 
                         one of the vanishing tunnels. I believe 
                         I shall be proud to call you friend.
 
                         
               
               
               The attack is imminent

               
               
                                     YOSUF
                         Martouf, all tunnels but this one and 
                         the escape tunnel have vanished. All 
                         the other Tok'ra have gone to the new 
                         homeworld; we must go now!
 
               
                                     SAM
                         But what about my father?

               
                                     YOSUF
                         When and if he awakens, Selmak knows 
                         where we'll be. He can follow.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         But the Goa'uld are coming, they'll 
                         capture him.
 
               
                                     YOSUF
                         If he's captured, he will die before 
                         he will reveal our whereabouts.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Well, then take him with you!

               
                                     JACK
                         Or we'll take him with us.

               
                                     MARTOUF
                         I'm afraid that to transport him now, 
                         he will die. He needs to remain stationary 
                         until Selmak has completed her repairs.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         We can't just leave him here!

               
                                     MARTOUF
                         I will remain with him. If I can get 
                         him out, I will. If not, I will allow 
                         the vanishing tunnels to consume us 
                         before the Goa'uld get here.
 
               
                                     GARSHAW
                         I cannot allow you to die in this way. 
                         We must leave now!
 
               
                                     SAM
                         I'll stay.

               
                                     GARSHAW
                         You are even more vulnerable since you 
                         contain the memories of Jolinar! I cannot 
                         allow you to stay. We must go now!
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         She's right, Captain. We have to go.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         With respect, no, Sir. I am not leaving 
                         him here.
 
               
                                     MARTOUF
                         Captain Carter and I will both remain. 
                         I will assure that we will not be taken 
                         by the Goa'uld.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Please, Colonel. I need to be here.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Right. Daniel? Teal'c? Let's go.

               
               Up on the planets surface

               
               
                                     YOSUF
                         We may not have much time before the 
                         Goa'uld come through the 'gate blocking 
                         our way.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         We can take you to our planet and then 
                         send you to your new home from there.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Daniel, start dialling home.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well shouldn't we wait for Carter?
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         O'Neill!

               
                                     JACK
                         Dial!

               
               Daniel dials the gate. Gliders approach and they go through, 
               just in time

                         Oh God, I hope I've done the right thing 
                         bringing him here.
 
               
                                     MARTOUF
                         From what I understand the alternative 
                         was no better.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         True.

                         Can your man defend them against an 
                         attack?
 
               
                                     GARSHAW
                         Only minimally.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Garshaw, what will Martouf do if the 
                         Goa'uld get too close?
 
               
                                     GARSHAW
                         I regret that at the risk of capture, 
                         Martouf will destroy the underground 
                         compound, with himself and all your 
                         people with it.

                         Ahh.

               
                                     SAM
                         Dad?

               
                                     SELMAK
                         Martouf?

               
                                     MARTOUF
                         I am here.

               
                                     SELMAK
                         Should we not make our escape?

               
                                     MARTOUF
                         Yes, we should.

               
                                     SAM
                         Ah, is my Dad in there somewhere?

               
                                     JACOB
                         I'm here Sam. Oh man, talk about your 
                         hangover.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         How are you Dad?

               
                                     JACOB
                         I'm awful. Headache the size of Kuwait. 
                         There's too much stuff in here. Whoah!
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         What?

               
                                     JACOB
                         No more arthritis! Holy Hannah! No more 
                         arthritis!
 
               
                                     MARTOUF
                         We should make our leave as soon as 
                         possible. This way.

                         Still no SG-1 signal Sir.

                         The Goa'uld are attempting to come through 
                         the 'gate.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Not if I dial out first! We'll go to 
                         Earth. You two can go wherever you need 
                         to from there.
 
               
               The gate is opened

               
               
                                     SAM
                         Did we open the gate or did they?

               
                                     SAROOSH
                         We have no choice!

               
                                     SAM
                         Wait!

                         Open the iris!

               
               
               
               They arrive at the SGC

               
               
                                     SELMAK
                         I must give you thanks. You have saved 
                         my life and that of my new host. We 
                         thank you.
 
               
                                     GARSHAW
                         This is wonderful news.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Yes. Can we talk to your host?

               
                                     JACOB
                         So when the little fella inside me is 
                         talking, do I sound like she does?
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         That is correct.

               
                                     JACOB
                         That's strange. I can feel myself talking, 
                         but it's not Me saying the words. You 
                         know?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Don't know. Take your word for it.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         How do you feel?

               
                                     JACOB
                         Well, considering I got one of those 
                         things inside me, pretty damn good! 
                         Listen, George, because of this blending 
                         thing, I already know everything there 
                         is to know about the Tok'ra. You made 
                         the right call.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         I hope so.

               
                                     JACOB
                         I would be proud to serve as liaison 
                         between the Earth and these people.
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Good. Well on that note, perhaps you 
                         can ask them to come with me to do a 
                         little debriefing.
 
               
                                     GARSHAW
                         I'm afraid we cannot. We must go.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         You are safe here.

               
                                     GARSHAW
                         Because of the spy, the Goa'uld may 
                         already be at the site the Tok'ra have 
                         moved to.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         You can't stay a little longer?

               
                                     MARTOUF
                         No, we must go quickly and stop the 
                         tunnels there before they are grown.
 
                         
               
                                     GARSHAW
                         We must move the Tok'ra to yet another 
                         new home. Do you not have a dialling 
                         device here?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah, we slapped a little one together.
 
                         
               
                                     GARSHAW
                         Hmm, you made it yourself, impressive. 
                         Will you show it to me? I would like 
                         to put in the coordinates myself.
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         This way.

               
                                     MARTOUF
                         I give you my word, I will watch over 
                         you father as if he were my own.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Thankyou.

                         I look forward to seeing you again.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         So do I.

               
                                     JACOB
                         It's ironic, ain't it?

               
                                     SAM
                         What?

               
                                     JACOB
                         I was trying to find you a better assignment 
                         and you didn't need it. Now you've found 
                         me the best assignment an old soldier 
                         could dream up. Thanks, kid.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         You're welcome. Do you have to go so 
                         soon?
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         Yeah. I have to go. Apparently, I'm 
                         the oldest and wisest among us.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Oh jeez.

                         There will come a time when the Tok'ra 
                         and the people of the Tau'ri will destroy 
                         the System Lords.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         This'll be a good day.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         This box has a signature in it we can 
                         recognise. Just send it through the 
                         gate and we'll know you want to contact 
                         us.
 
               
                                     GARSHAW
                         Thankyou. Come, Selmak.

               
                                     JACOB
                         I love you.

               
                                     SAM
                         I love you too, Dad.

               
                                     JACOB
                         Selmak says, let me see if I can translate 
                         this, don't call us, we'll call you.
 
                         
               
               They walk up the ramp and go through the gate

               
               THE END
