                                      STARGATE SG1

                                      Episode 407

                                      "WATERGATE"

                                           By

                                    Robert C. Cooper




               SG-1 is walking down the hall headed to the gateroom.

               
                                     SAM
                         All indications suggest a positive environment.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Sounds good. (Sam smiles)

               
                                     DANNY
                         It's gonna take us 2 weeks to get the 
                         enkarons fully transplanted.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         If the plan proves to be sutiable.
 
                         
               
                                     DANNY
                         It better be. They're running out of 
                         time.
 
               
               Chevrons are locking on the gate. They get to the point of origin 
               ... nothing happens. Jack raises his eyebrows and looks back 
               @ Sgt. Davis.
 
               
                                     DAVIS
                         Chevron 7 won't engage.

               
               SG-1 are looking from Davis to each other and then back to Davis. 
               Sam looks at Jack, then nods her head. She leaves to go to the 
               control room.
 
               
                                     DAVIS
                         I don't understand it. The diagnostic 
                         shows no problems.
 
               
               Sam and Davis look at the computer which says no errors.

               
                                     SAM
                         Sir, this is gonna take a while.

               
               Jack doesn't look too happy. He looks like he's thinking 'Damn 
               computers'.  Shot goes to the empty, quiet gate.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         It looks like there was an energy spike 
                         in our powerlog about 8 minutes before 
                         we first tried dialing out.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         Uh ... Correct me if I'm wrong, but 
                         isn't that something we see when another 
                         gate is being used on earth?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Like when Mayborne's N.I.D. guys had 
                         the other gate.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         There is no longer a second stargate 
                         on earth.
 
               
                                     GH
                         Ours was destroyed along with Thor's 
                         ship.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         But if it was another gate, and it was 
                         responsible for the energy spike, they 
                         would have a seismic trimmer like when 
                         the gate was found in Antartica.
 
               
                                     DAVIS
                         I've got something. (Screen has an earthquake 
                         showing up in the USSR, right in the 
                         middle of Siberia.)
 
               
                                     SAM
                         There was a seismic event that matches 
                         our time in the powerlog exactly.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Is that Siberia?

               
                                     SAM
                         Yes, Sir. And there's only one explination 
                         I can think of.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         The Russians have a stargate?

               
               OPENING CREDITS! ...

               
                                     GH
                         The Russians recovered the stargate 
                         from the bottom of the ocean.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         I thought we swept that entire area?
 
                         
               
                                     GH
                         We're talking about hundreds of square 
                         miles, Colonel. The Russian Navy was 
                         on alert because they spotted Thor's 
                         ship. They must have gotten lucky and 
                         beat us to it.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         And they admit it?

               
               GH Says they didn't have much choice. The pentagon said they 
               had the evidence to prove it. Danny and Sam wondered how they 
               figured out how it worked becouse it took them years. The russians 
               know quite a bit about the SGC, but haven't said how. GH said 
               how they got the gate opened isn't the issue, the problem is, 
               it won't close.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         That doesn't make any sence, I mean 
                         shouldn't it eventually shut down on 
                         it's own?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         The Goa'Uld themselves have not been 
                         able to establish a wormhole for longer 
                         that 38 minutes.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         What about another black-hole planet?
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         We would detect the gravitational anomolies, 
                         Sir. (Jack thinks about what she said 
                         for a few seconds, then smiles at her.)
 
                         
               
               GH says the Russians are devided on how to deal with the situation. 
               The president of russia didn't approve of the stargate program. 
               They were planing on bombing the facility and covering it up.
 
               
               
                                     JACK
                         And now?

               
                                     GH
                         One of the Russian Scientist convinced 
                         them to send in a team to see if it 
                         could be resolved in another way.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Who's the scientist?

               
                                     GH
                         Doctor Svetlana Markov.

               
                                     SAM
                         Wow! I know her work! She's brillient.
 
                         
               
                                     GH
                         She knows of you, too, MAjor. She's 
                         convinced Moscow to let SG-1 go to Siberia.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         You're kidding.

               
                                     GH
                         Jack, They are smart enough to realize 
                         that this has global implications, and 
                         SG-1 is the most experienced with the 
                         stargate.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         General, we're gonna walk into an unknown 
                         situation to save their rosey butts.
 
                         
               
                                     DANNY
                         JAck, we can't use our gate until we 
                         get their's shut down.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Then there's the potential danger of 
                         having an open wormhole between Earth 
                         and who knows where.
 
               
               GH orders them to go to siberia and help out. Jack has that cute 
               'Just great!' Expression on his face.

                         Doctor Markov, I presume.

                         I've also read yours, Major Carter. 
                         Wish we had met under different circumstances.

                         Yes, and Doctor Daniel Jackson, and 
                         Teal'C.
 
               
               Teal'C nods at the doc.

                         How do you know about the SGC?

               
                                     DM
                         I've read extensive files on all of 
                         you.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         The question was HOW.

               
                                     DM
                         I learned to read English when I was 
                         six, it was not difficult.
 
               
               Sam and Jack smile at each other.

               DM is talking about the russians spotting Thor's ship entering 
               the atmosphere.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         (Playing dumb.) Alien space ship, huh?
 
                         
               
               DM then says they saw the ship desentagrating in the air. They 
               recovered the gate after an extensive sweep of the ocean floor. 
               She talks about the Submarine going missing during the search.

               DM Says she was assigned to the program as chief science officer. 
               They had been in operation for 37 days against the wishes of 
               very powerful people in the government, who thretened to expose 
               the existance of the American stargate program. They want to 
               get the US to share the alien technology they have aquired.
 
               
               
                                     SAM
                         What stopped them?

               
                                     DM
                         We activated our gate. I covinced them 
                         that we could benefit better from our 
                         own program better than we could trust 
                         the Americans.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Ah ...

               
                                     DANNY
                         How did you activate it?

               
                                     DM
                         We have a dialing device.

               
                                     DANNY
                         The DHD. You found the one from Giza?
 
                         
               
                                     DM
                         It was confinscated from the Germans 
                         after the second world war.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Now, I understand how you can send your 
                         people thru and get them to return thru 
                         your gate instead of ours.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         That makes one of us.

               
                                     DM
                         Our gate superceded yours as long as 
                         the dialing device was connected to 
                         it. We only kept it connected when we 
                         were using it to prevent any crossovers. 
                         It required precise timing, but it worked.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Until now.

                         As for the current situation, I really 
                         don't know what has happened. There 
                         has been no contact with the base since 
                         yesterday @ 1200 hours.

                         (American) Sir, we have a visual of 
                         the target runway. It appears to be 
                         iced over, and there's no responce from 
                         the control tower.
 
               
                                     DM
                         We're going to have to jump.

                         Out ... of ... the plane?!?!?!?

               
               Teal'C looks confused, and looks @ Sam who does the closed eyes 
               thing.
 
               
                                     DM
                         I'm going with or without you, Colonel.

                         I suppose you expect my male bravada 
                         to kick in right about now.
 
               
                                     DM
                         I've read your file.

               
                                     JACK
                         No mention of bravado, eh?

               
                                     DM
                         There are 47 people down there who may 
                         need our help.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         (Leaning over) Look, You don't have 
                         to tell me what's at steak here. We've 
                         got 7 teams off world who can't get 
                         home until we fix what you screwed up.
 
                         
               
               DM just looks at him and sits back. Jack sit back too. Daniel 
               looks at Jack for a few seconds.

                         *Into mic on helmet* Stu? Gear 'em up. 
                         We're jumpin'.
 
               
               LOL! Poor Danny! He just looks up at Jack, looking pretty scared.

                         It's called a parachute.

                         It slows your desent after you jump 
                         out of the plane.

                         This device seams to be poorly designed 
                         to provide such a function.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         It opens after you jump. *Teal'C just 
                         stares with the stoic face we all know

                         (Staring at her) Yeah. Thought somebody 
                         should be prepared. (Said sarcastically)

                         If we get seperated, we'll rondevous 
                         at the base! (She jumps)

                         This does not seam wise!!!! (Jack pushes

               Jack put his hand on Danny's shoulder. Danny looks at him, and

               Shot of base. Jack, Sam & DM are walking in the snow toward the 
               base.

                         Come in. *Silence* There's been no responce

                         Their signals may be blocked if they 
                         are already inside.
 
               
               The two American soldiers walk in the base with guns up.

                         In the facility.

                         Well, I don't know, exactly. Where are 
                         you?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         We just got inside. Hang tight.

               
               Jack's walking up a flight of stairs. Then down a walkway.

                         I'm picking up trace amounts of chlorine.

                                     SAM
                         Nothing dangerous at these levels, Sir.
 
                         
               
               Jack and the ladies get to a long corridar.

               
                                     JACK
                         Allright, what is this place?

               
                                     SAM
                         It obviously wasn't built spacifically 
                         for your stargate program.
 
               
                                     DM
                         It was an experimental power station.

                         All I'm allowed to say is it was decommisioned 
                         2 years ago.

                         The power seems have been diverted from 
                         all nonessential base functions. This 
                         way to the main control center. Jack 
                         spots movement.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         *Over radio* Daniel? Is that you?

               
                                     DANNY
                         I don't know. I'm heading down a long 
                         corridor.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Which one?

               
               Jack flashes the light in Danny's face.

               
                                     DANNY
                         THIS one! *Jack lowers his weapon*
 
                         
               
                                     DM
                         This way.

               
                                     DANNY
                         Actually, you might want to see this 
                         first.
 
               
               Daniel turns over a body in a white coat. He's been shot in the 
               chest.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         These three were shot. I am unaware 
                         how the others died.
 
               
                                     DM
                         These doors lead to the stargate. *DM 
                         punches in a code on the alarm thing, 
                         and passes a card.*
 
               
               The doors open, revealing the open stargate and many bodies laying 
               on and around the ramp. DM Checks one of the russians.
 
               
                                     DM
                         They're all dead.

               
               The team walks in to the control room.

               
                                     DM
                         I need this station.

               
               Teal'C removes the dead technition from the chair behind the 
               computer for DM. She types something on the computer. She takes 
               off her mask.
 
               
                                     DM
                         (Tearfully with voice shaking) It's 
                         safe.
 
               
               Teal'C removes his mask. Jack watches him for approval. Teal'C 
               smells the air.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         The air is indeed clean.

               
               The other 3 humans take off their masks.

               
               DM is wiping away tears from her eyes.

               
                                     SAM
                         (Putting her hand on DM's shoulder) 
                         You OK?
 
               
                                     DM
                         (Still tearfully) I knew these men & 
                         women, Major. Some of them quite well.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         *Glances at Sam* So, what happened here?
 
                         
               
                                     DM
                         Colonel Sokoluv enacted the extreme 
                         measures protocal.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         What's that?

               
                                     DM
                         The stargate room is sealed, and substance 
                         35 is released throughout the base.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         *Jack's beside her with a confused look 
                         on his face shaking his head.* Nerve 
                         gas?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Nerve gas?!?!?!

               
                                     DM
                         It's OK, Colonel. It's a nonpersistant 
                         gas. It evaporates after 3 hours. (Jack's 
                         looking at sam, and shaking his head) 
                         Acording to the computer, the protocal 
                         was enacted yesterday.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         For what reason?

               
                                     DM
                         The computer log doesn't say.

               
                                     JACK
                         Alright , people were shooting each 
                         other around here before they got gassed. 
                         I want to know why.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         I'll see what I can find out.

               
               DM Gives them a list of all the personelle asigned to the base. 
               She says they should all be wearing ID tags.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         So, what about the gate?

               
                                     DM
                         It's an outgoing wormhole, but ... it 
                         doesn't make sense! The EM protocal 
                         cuts off the dialing device. If the 
                         protocal was enacted yesterday, where 
                         has the out going wormhole been drawing 
                         it's power from since then?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         We've seen a one drawing power from 
                         the outgoing destination.
 
               
                                     DM
                         Of course, the black hole-incident.
 
                         
               
               Sam and Jack look at each other.

               
                                     JACK
                         Is there anything you don't know?

               
                                     DM
                         *Confused* WHAT were they DOING?!?!?!?!?!?!
 
                         
               
               DM runs out of the room. Jack and Sam follow her. She climbs 
               up a storage thingy and opens the top.
 
               
                                     DM
                         It's GONE!

               
                                     JACK
                         If I ask WHAT, and you say it's classified, 
                         I'm gonna shoot you.
 
               
                                     DM
                         The seventh address we sucessfully dialed 
                         led to a stargate entirelly submerged 
                         underwater. (Sam looks at Jack) We sent 
                         a recognesis, and found the dialing 
                         device. It was decided that the maned 
                         mini submarine would go next. A sample 
                         of the water was retrieved. It seemed 
                         to have unbelievable properties.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Like what?

               
                                     DM
                         It was spontaniously emiting energy 
                         in the form of heat. If this liquid 
                         turned out to be an abundant clean energy 
                         source ...
 
               
                                     SAM
                         That doesn't seem possible.

               
                                     DM
                         I was called away to Moscow before I 
                         could preform any significant anylisis.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         So now you're saying the water sample 
                         is gone?
 
               
                                     DM
                         Yes. There was a sealed container here.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         And the Stargate is connected to the 
                         water planet?
 
               
                                     DM
                         Apparently, but ... that doesn't make 
                         sense. They were supposed to continue 
                         on to the next 2 planets on our planned 
                         sequence, and NOT revisit the waterplanet 
                         until I got back!
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Let's confirm it. Do you have another 
                         recognasis craft?
 
               
                                     DM
                         We left the first one there. All we 
                         have to do is reactivate it.
 
               
               She runs down the stairs and then down the corridor. Sam and 
               Jack look at each other and then run after her.
 
               
               Daniel and Teal'C are checking the bodies.

               
                                     JACK
                         *Thru radio* Daniel? Teal'C?

               
                                     DANNY
                         Uh ... What's up?

               
                                     JACK
                         Head back to the control room. Doctor 
                         Markov thinks you might want to see 
                         this.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Thusfar we have accounted for 28 of 
                         the 47 members on the list.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         6 of them were dressed as civilians, 
                         not soldiers. They were shot, and there 
                         was no apparent reason why.
 
               
                                     DM
                         They were the scientists working in 
                         the lab.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         So, the guys experiamenting on that 
                         water gave the soldiers reason to shoot 
                         them.
 
               
                                     DM
                         So it seems.

               
                                     DANNY
                         What water?

               
                                     SAM
                         A sample brought back from where the 
                         stargate is submerged.
 
               
                                     DM
                         I thought you might be interested, Doctor 
                         Jackson. We found some unusual ruins 
                         of an obviously extinct civilization 
                         on the ocean floor.
 
               
               Screen show ruins.

               
                                     DANNY
                         Can you get closer?

               
                                     DM
                         The drone is malfunctioning. I can only 
                         pan and tilt.
 
               
               Shot goes to Russian sailer dead in the water. DM is ubset.

                         Why would those men proceed thru the 
                         stargate knowing that they would drown 
                         on the other side?
 
               
               Jack raises his eyebrows and cocks his head.

               
                                     SAM
                         Can you shut off the drone's transmitter 
                         from here?
 
               
                                     DM
                         Why?

               
                                     SAM
                         Well, even though the wormhole only 
                         allows matter to travel one way, we 
                         are able to send radio signals back 
                         and forth.
 
               
                                     DM
                         You think the radio transmitter is what's 
                         keeping the gate open?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         The gate won't close if the transmitter 
                         is sending a strong enough signal into 
                         the event horizon.
 
               
                                     DM
                         The energy from the water is making 
                         the gate stay open this long.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Exactly. It's a combination of factors. 
                         All we have to do is shut off the drone.
 
                         
               
                                     DM

               They get ready to launch the submarine. Danny says he wants to 
               get a good look @ the ruins. Jack askes how many people the sub 
               holds. DM answers 3.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         *Sarcastically* Oh, Dang. I've never 
                         been in a submarine before.
 
               
               DM looks at Sam who looks away. The three are climbing in the 
               sub. Danny looks around.

                         Over a days worth. We won't need more 
                         than an hour.*Sam and Danny look at

                         Thank you.

               
               Totally awesome above gate shot. On one side you see sub going 
               thru, on other side, nothing. I love those shots! Sub goes thru 
               on the other side.

                         All right, we'll have another look around.
 
                         
               
               DM says something about turning off the drone transmitter. Ending 
               transmission over and out. The gate shuts down. Jack says they 
               will have another look around.
 
               
               Sub is traveling thru water.

                         I'm glad you were right, Major.

               
               Sam says that still doesn't explain the murder of the scientists. 
               DM wonders why the men on the other side in the water were either 
               forsed thru the gate or felt compelled to go thru knowing they 
               would drown. Danny mentions the ruins proving the planet wasn't 
               always underwater. They go look. DM noticed the controls are 
               getting heavy. She hasn't touched the power, but they are slowing 
               down. She's pushing it full power.

                         It's out! We're OK. (Sam goes look out 
                         the window in the front) *To DM who's

                         at the front of the sub) If it was a 
                         strong current, it should be taking 
                         us backwards now.

                                     SAM
                         No. We're completely stationary. It's 
                         like we're stuck in the mud.
 
               
               DANNY With out the mud.

               
               Jack and Teal'C's checking around.

                         What's that smell?

               
               They go to the kitchen which appears to have smoke in it. I guess 
               they burned the food! Jack turns off the oven. They spot the 
               ajar door of the freezer. Jack motions Teal'C to check it out. 
               He opens the freezer ...
 
               
               And sees MAYBOURNE standing there frozen like an icecycle!  
               LOL!

                         said you could definately fix it...

                         (ALA Jack O'Neill!LOL!) Well, given 
                         the solid craftmanship that went into 
                         this thing, I don't see how this could 
                         POSSIBLY have happened.

                         WHAT?!?!?!?!?! The gage must be malfunctioning.

                         Our depth is constant, and pressure 
                         should be relative to depth.

                         And if it keeps increasing?

                         The sub will implode.

               
               Back to base ...

               
               Jack and Teal'C lay Maybourne down on a table.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         We now know how the Russians inquired 
                         the information.
 
               
               Jack's knocking on Mayborne's face!

               
                                     JACK
                         Solid! LOL! (OH! I can't breath. My 
                         daughter's freaking out becouse I'm 
                         laughing so hard!)
 
               
               OK! I'm OK now!

               
               Some kind of steam comes out of Maybourne's mouth.

               
                                     JACK
                         Whoa!

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Do not human usually die when they are 
                         frozen?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Usually.

               
               Some more mist comes out of Maybourne's mouth.

               
                                     JACK
                         They usually don't breathe when they're 
                         dead either.
 
               
               Back to sub ...

               
                                     DANNY
                         So, Slavana, tell us exactly what happened 
                         the last time you were here.
 
               
                                     DM
                         We came thru the stargate just as you 
                         did this time. We took the sub straight 
                         to the dialing device and rediled earth. 
                         The gate opened, and we headed thru.
 
                         
               
                                     DANNY
                         That's it?

               
                                     DM
                         We collected the water sample just before 
                         heading back thru the event horizon.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         No trouble?

               
                                     DM
                         We had to push the engines a little 
                         harder to get thru the gate, but I suspected 
                         it was a countermeasure intended to 
                         keep the water from flowing thru the 
                         gate.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         It's possible. My research indicated 
                         that the gate actually has the ability 
                         to use density & molecular structure 
                         and a forse being exerted on the event 
                         horizon to determine whether something 
                         is trying to pass thru.
 
               
                                     DM
                         I know, that's where I got the idea.
 
                         
               
               Sam nods. The ship starts groaning.

               
               Back to base ...

               
               Maybourne moves his hand. Jack looks up at Teal'C.

               
                                     JACK
                         Maybourne?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         His heart is beating. Albeat slowly. 
                         He is getting warmer O'Neill.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Maybourne!?

               
               Mayborne moves his eyes. He looks from Jack to Teal'C.

               
                                     JACK
                         Ya hear me? (MB looks evily at Jack.)
 
                         
               
               Back to sub ...

               
               The engines start, but they don't move. DM turns off the engines 
               so she doesn't burn them up. Danny notes that if they stay there, 
               they will run out of air. DM points out that the increasing pressure 
               will make the sub implode long before they run out of air.
 
               
               
                                     DANNY
                         Or that! 

               
               Sam and DM agree that they have maybe an hour left.

               
                                     DM
                         The front bubble will be the first to 
                         go.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         Uh ... can we stop agreeing on how we're 
                         gonna die, and start doing something 
                         about it?
 
               
               Back to base ...

               
               MB sits up. Teal'C has his gun on him.

               
                                     JACK
                         Allright, that's far enough. *Maybourne 
                         turns* Maybourne? *MB's walking out 
                         of the kitchen* MAYBOURNE! STOP!!!! 
                         *Teal'C blocks MB's path* Move again, 
                         and I'll shoot! *MB turns again to face 
                         Jack*
 
               
               Maybourne appears to vomit. Jack has a look of discust on his 
               face as MB throws up what appears to be the water.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Damn!

               
                                     MB
                         Jack ... The freezer!

               
                                     JACK
                         What?

               
                                     MB
                         *Advancing towards Jack* Move if you 
                         want to live! *Jack puts his pistal 
                         in MB's face.* Shoot me if you want 
                         to! We're dead if we don't move NOW!!!!
 
                         
               
               The mist comes up from the floor at Teal'C's feet.

               
                                     JACK
                         Teal'C?

               
               Teal'C jumps back gasping in the mist. MB jumps on Jack sending 
               the 2 officers into the freezer.
 
               
                                     MB
                         NO! It's too late for him! JACK!!! You 
                         open that door, and we're both dead, 
                         I swear! Ya can't help him!
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Get out of my way.

               
               Thru the glass , Jack sees Teal'C standing up and walking out 
               of the kitchen.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         What the Hell is going on here?

               
               Back in the sub, they figure out that the liquid is probrably 
               not water.

                         The water. When they exposed it to the 
                         air to start a chemical analisis, it 
                         just evaporated. Turned into vapor.

                         We inhaled it. Didn't give us a choice.

                         The scientists and I. I knew what was 
                         going on, but I couldn't control myself. 
                         They wanted to go back thru the stargate.

                         Lifeforms. In the water. Countless numbers 
                         of microscopic organisms. Intellegent 
                         lifeforms!

                         thinks?

                         We were killing them They forsed us 
                         to take them back thru the gate. The 
                         soldiers tried to stop us. They were 
                         shooting. If an infected man was killed, 
                         the fluid came out of him and more were 
                         infected. It was chaoes. Only , the 
                         infected soldiers managed to get to 
                         the DHD, and get the gate open. That's 
                         when the base commander enacted the 
                         EM protochol to stop it! The infected 
                         men started running thru the gate, trying 
                         to escape the gas.

                         I was cut off from the gateroom. I think 
                         the liquid organisms inside me knew 
                         the only way to keep themselves alive 
                         was to escape the gas and freeze themselves. 
                         So they forced me in here.

                         They must have communicated it to me.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         This is the stuff that's in Teal'C now? 
                         *MB Nodds his head* How do we get it 
                         out? *MB Shakes his head* Come on, Maybourne! 
                         It came out of you!
 
               
                                     MB
                         They needed to go back. You wouldn't 
                         let me go. I guess they thought Teal'C 
                         could get them home.
 
               
               Back to Sub ...

               
                                     DANNY
                         What if it's a lifeform?

               
                                     DM
                         That is pure assumption.

               
                                     DANNY
                         That may explain everything.

               
                                     SAM
                         After you collected the sample, you 
                         said there was resistance trying to 
                         go back thru the gate.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         It wasn't the gate causing the resistance, 
                         it was the lifeform trying to prevent 
                         you from leaving.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         And now, it's precieving us as some 
                         kind of a threat.
 
               
               The glass on the bubble window cracks. The three look very worried.
 
               
               
               Back to Base ...

               
               Teal'C's walking down the corridor.

               
                                     JACK
                         Teal'C! *Jack runs up behind the big 
                         Jaffa* TEAL'C!!!! *Jack tackles the 
                         big man to the ground* (Shaking Teal'C) 
                         Fight it! FIGHT IT!!!! *Teal'C struggles 
                         with Jack, then throws him across the 
                         room.*
 
               
               Teal'C goes in the gateroom and closes the door.

               
               Back to sub ...

               
               The three look at the crack. DM hands the americans some kind 
               of cylinder thingy.
 
               
                                     DM
                         It's all we've got!

               
                                     SAM
                         The pressure alone would ...

               
               The glass cracks some more. The bubble breaks, but the water 
               DOESN'T come in the sub. It looks like the event horizon. The 
               three humans are flabergasted.
 
               
               Back to Base! ...

               
               Teal'C is stalking his way to the DHD! He slowly punches in the 
               address.
 
               
               Back to sub ...

               
               The three are still looking at the water with open mouths. Daniel 
               starts walking toward the water.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Daniel?

               
               Daniel puts his hand in the water like only Daniel can! 
 
               
               
                                     DM
                         What's are you doing? WHAT'S HE DOING?!?!?!?!
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Daniel?!

               
                                     DANNY
                         (With hand in water) I think it just 
                         wants to understand!
 
               
                                     DM
                         (Sounding kinda scared.) What?

               
                                     DANNY
                         Us.

               
               The organism grabs Danny, and starts to pull him in. The ladies 
               pull on his body, and get taken too! (OH! to be the ladies at 
               that time! MMn MMn MMN!)
 
               
               Shot goes to Jack waking up. Sounds of chevrons locking. Shot 
               goes to Teal'C hand on the bulb in the middle of DHD. Gate opens 
               up as Jack arrives in gateroom. Teal'C walks up to the event 
               horizon, and proceeds to vomit the organism out. Jack looks discusted. 
               The organism comes out of Teal'C and goes into the event horizon. 
               The gate turns off. Jack walks over to his friend.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Teal'C?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         They had no wish to kill me, O'Neill. 
                         They only wanted to travel home.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         That's it? You all right?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I will be.

               
               The chevrons activate all at once.

               
                                     JACK
                         OK! I think we should ... DUCK! (He 
                         is sooo cute when he says this!)
 
               
               They duck, and the energy burst just misses them. They stand 
               up and look at the open gate. Sam, Danny and DM fly thru the 
               gate, hitting the ramp hard, grunting.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Ah! That had to hurt! *He and Teal'C 
                         walk over to the three.*
 
               
               The three are getting up.

               
                                     JACK
                         Didn't you guys leave here in a submarine?
 
                         
               
               The three look at each other, confused.

               
                                     SAM
                         We uh ...

               
                                     DANNY
                         Last thing I remember, we were being 
                         pulled into the ...
 
               
               Teal'C cocks his head at the confused humans.

               
                                     SAM
                         Not really sure what happened, Sir.
 
                         
               
               Jack and Teal'C exchange looks.

               
                                     JACK
                         Here's a thought. We just exchanged 
                         hostiges. *Every one looks at each other 
                         confused.* It's just a thought.
 
               
               CLOSING CREDITS

               
               THE END
