"THE DEVIL YOU KNOW"
Robert C. Cooper
So weíre talking about a rescue mission
Marty: No one has ever escaped from
Netu. No one except for Jolinar
BRIEFING ROOM SAM
Iíve never had anything more than scattered
flashes of her memories Marty: the Tokíra
have technology that aids the recall
Rosha being tortured and Sam experiencing the pain
Shut it off! Shut it off!
She was tortured... so badly
Itís her father, she knows the stakes
But if Samantha cannot recall...
Itís been done before. It can be done

The atmosphere around the moon is impenetrable
by ship. The only way to reach the surface
is in the descent pods
FX shot of the group on the surface of Netu Big cavern shot overlooking
the city scape
Itís certainly not Emerald City
Weíve come to see Bynarr. Jack gets
hit by the blast from the hand device
Bynarr: (distorted) Who asks for me
by name? Sam: I do! Bynarr: Throw them
in the pit
THE PIT DAD
Sam... Sam: Dad? Dad: Are you crazy?
Jack: Uh, apparently Dad: Sokarís fleet
is ten times larger than we thought
SOKARíS PALACE SOKAR
(distorted) Find out what they want...
then kill them
THE PIT SAM
There are transportation rings in Bynarrís

THE PIT JACK
We gotta go
And now, the conclusion
Apophisí eyes flash
You do understand weíre not too happy
to see you?
(distorted) Your insolence is music
to my ears. When I first saw you here
I knew I had found the path out of damnation.
You will be the means by which I reclaim
the power and position that is rightfully
Your mate Amaunet is dead.
Apophis looks almost unhappy
Sorry to ruin your day. Actually, no,
Iím wrong about that. Iím not sorry
Sokar sent word to me of Amaunetís death.
I did not believe it
Well, believe it. Itís true
Then it must also be true that Tealíc
is the murderer
Oh, thatís wrap things up real nice
for you, wouldnít it?
Why is the sholíva not with you?
The Other Guy looks down at Daniel, then grabs him.
This one conceals something
He pulls out the communication device and hands it to Apophis
A communication device. Tealíc, this
is your god, Apophis. Risen from the
fires of Netu. The fate of your friends
will be pleasant compared to what I
have planned for you. Return them to
the pit. Kintac You will be my first
It is my honour
Search them, and do whatever is necessary
to ensure that they do not escape again.
But do not kill them. When they are
done serving us, I will have that pleasure
The trapdoor is shut, Jen tries not to sing the theme tune...
I warned you when you sent Apophis through
the ĎGate that he could be revived using
a sarcophagus. Sokar would rather see
his victims suffering than dead
He doesnít seem to be suffering much
Dad is unconscious in Samís arms. She puts a hand on his forehead
Heís burning up
What is Apophis thinking? He canít hope
to defend himself from Sokar
He seemed pretty confident to me
Apophis has one chance. He must convince
Sokar not to kill him. If the reason
is good enough, he may even be able
to buy his freedom

of Earth, and the Tokíra

Apophis stands on the platform
Everyone looks up as they hear Kintac
Bynarr is dead. Sokar will come.
The Denizens are a little shocked
You fear he will bring his wrath down
upon us. But he cannot make out existence
He could come in a ship and wipe us
out from space!
I can deliver us from this place. I
have killed the Devilís servant! I will
The Denizens start cheering
The guys look a little shocked to be hearing this
(v.o.) Those that follow and serve me
will be led to freedom...
...to a dominion! One in which the god
Apophis, risen from the depths of the
underworld will rule over all that was
once shared by the Goaíuld
Well, this experience doesnít seem to
have humbled him much
(v.o.) The dawn of our deliverance is
Have no fear!
Bow to Apophis, the deliverer!
Everyone bows their heads
Yes. Sokar will come
The crowd cheers
I say let him come!
FX shot of ships flying about the place, city scape
A guard walks in
My lord, a cargo ship was spotted in
orbit around Netu. Two gliders gave
chase but the cargo ship entered hyperspace
We must assume that the ship contained
spies. The attack on the System Lords
will begin sooner than planned. You
will have the fleet ready in two days.
My lord, the very best we can do...
He is silenced by a look from Sokar. Sokar raises a hand, and
the Other Guard almost smiles. The Guard knows not to fight
The fleet will be ready, my lord
FX shot of Netuís surface
Apophis is studying his reflection. Kintac walks in
How many follow me?
Three hundred. The rest have been banished
to the surface. They will change their
minds or die
Did you find anything when you searched
Kintac pulls out the device that switches on the memory recall
He hands it to Apophis
Even if all the Denizens decide to serve
you, what good will it do? You cannot
fight Sokar with crude weapons
Bynarr said he had one day to determine
the identity of the intruders and report
Then we have one day before Sokar sends
his ship to destroy us
Not if I have something he wants
You will discover the identity of the
I already know their identity. By the
time Sokar arrives I will know much
more. Bring me the woman
The door is opened, and Kintac plus Jenís Big Strong Men come
The woman will come with me
Umm... I donít think so
Kintac fires his staff weapon, hitting Jack in the knee. Jen
not happy. Sam rushes to his side as he bites off what Jen assumes
to be lots of naughty words
She leaves with them. When theyíve gone, Daniel and Marty go
to Jackís aid
The wound appears cauterised but there
may be bleeding beneath the surface
(so in pain) Oh... God...
Daniel makes a tourniquet out of something and ties it round
Daniel tightens the makeshift bandage

in Stoic Mode
Sam is hauled before Apophis. He nods to the guards then searches
her for the recall device.
You used this device to access the memories
Jolinar left in your mind. That is the
only way you could have known how to
escape. I will use it to get you to
tell me everything I want to know.
It doesnít work that way.
I know how it works. When it is fully
activated it makes your memories easily
accessible to your conscious mind.
He switches it on
We see a photo of Dad and Young Sam, then a photo of Mama Sam.
Young Sam then looks at herself in the mirror
I wonít tell you anything
Apophis nods to the guard who pours some red juice into a cup.
He then grabs Samís face
The Blood of Sokar will cloud your mind
Sam is forced to drink
Once under its spell you will tell me
Sam gags and coughs
Young Sam looks away from the mirror then back. In true Quantum
Leap style she sees herself as she is now
Are you almost ready?
Sam isnít happy
Can we talk?
Sam ignores him
Sam, you havenít said two words since...
since the accident. Your brotherís made
it pretty clear how he feels.
He blames you
I blame myself
your work has always been more important
You know thatís not true. I donít want
you to forgive me. I donít know if I
could accept that yet. I just want you
(turning to face him) You were supposed
to pick Mom up. You were late. She took
a cab. There was an accident. I understand.
I couldnít have known it would happen
But Mom is dead
Nothing I say or do can change that.
All I can do is make sure the things
she loved the most donít die with her.
Sam, without you and your brother, my
life is over. Nothing else means more
to me. Donít forgive me. Just tell me
that one day weíre gonna be OK.
Still not happy
He blames you
I blame myself
But Mom is dead
Just tell me that one day weíre gonna
Sheís still there...
Just tell me that one day weíre gonna
Sam looks to Dad, confused
No. I forgave you long ago. Why am I
stuck in this? The same memory over
and over. I guess if we never had this
conversation neither one of us would
be in this mess, would we? I would have
gone on hating you and the military,
I never would have got involved in the
Stargate programme. You would have died
Sam, I am dying
Iím dying right now... (flash)... dying
right now. Only you can save me (echoes)
Tell me how to get home
Tell me the way home, to Earth
She gets up
This is not right
Youíll lose me forever if you donít
tell me the iris codes (echoes)
This is not real
Cut to Sam, and when we go back Apophis is there
(in Dadís voice) Tell me
The scene fades into Bynarrís quarters
(yelling) Tell me!
tell me how to penetrate the Earthís
Stargate. Tell me how... or I will kill
Sam shakes her head and we fade out in a white light
Tokíra base planet
(recording) Tealíc, this is your god,
Apophis. Risen from the fires of Netu.
The fates of your friends will be pleasant
compared to what I have planned for
Tealíc switches it off
It was then that I realised they would
not be able to execute the escape plan.
I entered hyperspace to avoid the gliders
that had detected my presence
You must have run the hyperspace engines
at full power in order to make the journey
The situation was urgent
I understand your desire to report the
information concerning Sokarís planned
attack against the System Lords as soon
as possible. It may prove invaluable
I have come seeking you assistance in
order to rescue my friends and your
fellow Tokíra. I believe it to be only
a matter of time before Sokar learns
that Apophis has eliminated Bynarr and
therefore takes action to restore control
Wait here. I will consult the High Council
and return shortly with a course of
He and the other Tokíra leave
A limping Jack [(((hugs)))] is brought before Apophis. He is
forced to kneel
Major Carter was most forthcoming
She didnít tell you squat. Oh, and by
the way, I wonít either
You are not here to provide information.
You are here for my amusement
The recall device is put on his temple
Oh! God, no! All right, all right, all
It is switched on
Weíre in what we assume is Jackís back yard. He has a baseball
glove in his hand
Jack is reeling from the memory
You must be dying to quench your thirst
Kintac brings over the Blood of Sokar. One of Jenís Big Strong
Men punches Jack on his bad leg so he cries out, allowing Kintac
to pour the liquid down his throat. Jack closes his eyes
Sam wakes up
Heís, uh... not so good, but heís still
Apophis said he was gonna kill him
No. He, uh... he brought you back and
Sam isnít happy at the news
Are you OK?
They gave me something called the Blood
It is legendary. A strong narcotic that
can cause very realistic hallucinations.
Iím pretty sure I didnít give anything
She crawls over to him
Iím here. Iím here
Sam, I hate to sound negative here
Shh... Save your strength
I donít think Iím gonna make it
No. That is unacceptable. Think about
seeing your grandchildren again. Donít
make me have to explain this to them
Dad nods then closes his eyes
Martouf... If they come for you...
I have endured torture before
This is not like anything you could
imagine. Everything seems real. Feelings,
sensations. Itís like youíre actually
there in your own past. And then suddenly
everything seems wrong. Your mind gets
all twisted. Just donít let Apophis
use Jolinar against you
How could he?
You must be angry about what Jolinar
had to do in order to escape from here.
Martouf... she loved you.
Charlie! Sorry Iím late. I stopped to
get you somethiní
Shot of some playhouse thingy
You in there?
Charlie runs out from behind one of those plastic slide sets,
brandishing a green plastic gun
Youíre dead! Youíre dead!
When he play acts the firing of the gun, we hear real gun shot
Not a happy camper is Jack
Whereíd you get that?
Jeff Eisen gave it to me. Itís just
a water gun
Jack takes it from him
It doesnít matter
You have a gun (echoes)
Thereís a flash and the scene changes slightly
Charlie walks away from Jack
Where you goiní?
Well, wait a minute. I got you somethiní.
Come on, weíll play some catch
This is not what happened, Dad. Youíre
changing everything just to make it
Thereís a flash again
I know. Canít we just play catch?
What really happened is that you got
mad at me and I went into the house.
Two weeks from now I shot myself with
your gun (echoes) your gun. We never
played catch today and we never will
Why? Why canít we just play catch?
Iíll play... if you tell me... (flash)...
if you tell me
Still not happy
What? What do you want to know? Iíll
tell you anything Hands Charlie the
glove Charlie: Tell me how you made
contact with the Asgard (echoes)
[OK, how the hell does Apophis know all this? Heís not reading
their minds, just bringing certain memories to the front and
You canít know that. This isnít you
Charlie: Sure it is. Come on, Dad. Weíll
have a catch.Just like you want Jack:
And weíre out in another white flash
The rings on the Teltak drop Aldwin and a box inside. Tealíc
comes through to the back and eyes it suspiciously. Well, OK,
I have been instructed to return to
What is inside the container?
For what purpose?
The Tokíra High Council believes that
the uprising of Apophis presents a key
He opens the box
Sokar will take his mother ship into
orbit around Netu to restore order there
This weapon is intended for Sokar
Yes, but unfortunately we have no weapons
capable of penetrating the shields of
a Goaíuld mothership
How then will this weapon prove effective?
I aim to launch it through the atmosphere
of the moon into one of the holes of
its surface and down into the core.
There it will force the base elements
into a cataclysmic chain reaction. The
entire moon will explode, taking Sokarís
ship with it
Along with everything else on that moon
The Tokíra would not do such a thing
unless there was no other alternative.
Sokar cannot be permitted to rise to
a dominant power. It would end our chances
of ever overthrowing the Goa'uld
What of rescuing my friends and the
Tokíra still trapped on that world?
I am charged with my mission. If you
intend to stand in my way, I will insist
that you remain here on Vorash
I will accompany you
Then we must leave immediately
Jack is practically unconscious on the floor
No... I donít wanna go to school
Daniel turns him over and he wakes up fully
They, uh... they took Martouf
They put that damn memory thing on me.
And then they gave me something... that
reminded me of the 70s
The Blood of Sokar
Iím gonna pass out again
And he does
FX shot of the Teltak in hyperspace
If Sokar has not entered orbit around
Netu when we arrive, a rescue could
still be attempted
Yes. But if he is already in orbit,
we must act swiftly and launch the weapon.
I donít like this any more than you
do. But essentially, this is war. If
Sokar ascends to ultimate power the
consequences will be far greater than
losing a few good people
Timing will be critical. Once the weapon
has been launched it will take approximately
twelve minutes for the reaction in the
moonís core to reach critical mass.
If Sokar has enough advanced warning
he will have time to escape the range
of the explosion
Another FX shot of the Teltak in hyperspace
The memory device is removed by Apophis. He looks up as Sam is
brought into the room. Marty in his half-drugged state sees Rosha
being forced to kneel before him. The shot changes mid-flow so
we see Sam
Jolinar was your mate
Marty smiles weakly at Rosha
Tell me the location of the Tokíra resistance
or she dies
Donít do it, Martouf
Marty can only see Rosha
Tell me now
Iím not Jolinar. Donít tell him anything
Apophis aims the staff weapon at the back of Samís neck, and
I cannot let him kill you
No, Martouf. (softly) No, Martouf
Marty starts to cry
Sam does the Closed Eye Thing
The Tokíra resistance is based on the
Apophis removes the staff
Return them to the pit. Bring me Daniel
Marty and Sam are hauled off, leaving Apophis looking pretty
pleased with himself
The Guard walks in
Your fleet is ready, my lord
You have done well
Bynarr has not yet reported as you wished
I will take my ship, and cleanse the
underworld so that its fires may be
reborn. Then I will launch the attack
on the System Lords. Soon the entire
realm of the Goaíuld will serve me...
or suffer the fate of the damned
Daniel is marched through
Jack is trying to sleep, Marty is recovering, Sam is cradling
I knew it was you
You shouldnít have done it, Martouf
I could not watch him kill you, Samantha
Entac is a primitive planet. There are
no Tokíra there
You were very convincing. I believed
If Apophis believes he knows the location
of the Tokíra, what does he want from
Bynarrís communication device lights up
Hear me, Bynarr. Why do you defy your
Apophis looks from the communication device to Daniel, then hits
him. He then turns to the communicator
Bynarr is dead by my hand. I am Apophis,
and the Denizens of Netu follow me
Kintac removes the device from Daniel
I will bring the full force of my weapons
down upon you. You will die in burning
First you will hear me
They have arrived and are in orbit. However, so is Sokarís mothership.
Aldwin presses some buttons and most of the power cuts out
We must hold our position in the shadow
of the moon so we are not detected
[how do Goaíuld sensors work? Is it just a bunch of Jaffa looking
out of windows?]
Before you fire upon us, know this:
I have tortured the intruders. Three
from the Tauri and a Tokíra. I have
learnt much, including the location
of the Tokíra resistance. Bynarr was
weak. He was incompetent. A Goaíuld
of your superior power deserves more.
I wish to serve you. I offer this information
I have gathered as proof. Grant me an
audience and allow me to show my reverence
to you by bowing at your feet
I will grant you this request
I am forever in your service
The communicator shuts off
Take him away
A Jaffa(?) hauls Daniel to his knees. Looking up, Daniel sees
his communicator on the table
Standing up, Daniel punches the Jaffa in the stomach. Itís like
punching a bag of flour. The Jaffa then takes a swing at Daniel
who flies across to and onto the table, grabbing the communicator
as he does so. The table then collapses from underneath him.
The Jaffa picks him up off the floor, and hauls him out. Kintac
send Jenís Big Strong Men with him
Sokar will die by my hand and I will
command his domain
Surely he will not let you enter his
ship with weapons
Apophis takes off the hand device
Do you think I am a fool? I have been
planning this since the moment I was
sent here. I will convince Sokar to
make me the new lord of Netu. He will
come down off his throne to brand me
with his seal, and when he gets close
Apophis holds up his arm. Out of the sleeve shoots a blade which
then retracts. Kintac smiles. Apophis removes the key for the
rings from his neck
On my command, replace this... here
Kintac takes it, and Apophis stands under the rings. He nods
and Kintac activates the rings. Apophis is taken onto the ship...
...and is witnessed by Tealíc
Someone has transported from the surface
of Netu to Sokarís vessel
Aldwin presses a couple of pads on the console which then flash
The weapon is ready for launch. Sokarís
ship is almost in position
Daniel is brought back in. Jack sits up. Marty goes over to Daniel
Sokarís ship is in orbit. Apophis went
up to meet him. I managed to get this
He holds up the communicator. He hands it to Sam
Can Sokarís ship pick up the transmission?
The signal is coded
She clicks it on
Aldwin is preparing the weapon
Tealíc, can you hear me?
(to Aldwin) Wait! (Into Comm) Major
Carter, it is I
Aldwin finishes the prepping of the missile
Aldwin gets out a Zat and aims it at Tealíc. The display is flashing-
itís ready to launch. He hesitates for a second, then pushes
FX shot of the missile being launched
Aldwin is resolute, Tealíc looks ready to kill him
FX shot of the missile striking Netu
The room shakes. Dad wakes up. Distant cries in the background
What the hell is that?
Sokar is attacking!
The room shakes again. The gas vent near the trapdoor starts
Tealíc, whatís going on?
Aldwin lowers the Zat. Tealíc *so* wants to kill him
You have twelve minutes until Netu is
I am here with the Tokíra Aldwin. He
has launched a weapon into the moonís
core which will explode, destroying
Sokarís ship which is in its orbit
The Tokíra High Council must believe
it is the only choice, otherwise they
would not sacrifice us in this way
Weíre not dead yet
The room shakes again. Lots of cries in the background. The gas
vent shoots fire again
I have an idea
She, Marty and Jack go over to the vent
Help me pack this. Fill in this vent.
As many rocks as you can. Wedge them
in real tight.
They start to fill it
Apophis is prostrated on the floor, and lifts his head, but stays
My time of suffering has taught me the
strength of your power, my lord
Tell me the information you extracted
from the intruders
I beg you to grant me the privilege
of ruling Netu. Bynarr was not worthy
of such honour
Tell me the location of the Tokíra rebellion
That is only one of the many valuable
things I have learnt
Sokar lowers his hood, and leans forward
Why do you try my patience? Tell me,
and I will grant you your wish and brand
you Lord of the Underworld
The Tokíra are based on the planet Entac
Sokar sits back on his throne. He looks to the Other Guard who
grabs Apophis by the shoulders
What is the meaning of this?
I recently conquered Entac. There are
no Tokíra there. Kill him. Slowly.
We have less than nine minutes. If we
stay here much longer, we risk being
caught in the explosion ourselves
I will take that risk
Even if Martouf and your friends somehow
make it to the transporter rings on
Netu, Sokarís ship is in the direct
path of the matter stream
Tealíc starts to walk towards Aldwin
There is no way we can intercept them
Tealíc is getting up close and personal, so Aldwin tries to raise
the Zat, but Tealíc bats it away, then forces Aldwin into the
back of the Teltak
Tealíc, unhand me! Tealíc!
Tealíc throws him in the back...
Tealíc, this is suicide
...and closes the door. Aldwin goes to the door
[donít those things open from the inside too?]
Theyíve just about filled in the hole now. The roomstarts to
The vent explodes, sending everything upwards and taking out
the trapdoor. My, isnít that lucky.
The Other Guard is using the cattle prod on Apophis
Dad is carried out as they climb out of the pit.
Weíre on our way
Timing is critical, Daniel Jackson.
You must tell me precisely when you
They crawl their way long as the fire shoots up out of every
available hole. People are screaming in the background
Tealíc, listen carefully! In order to
intercept the matter stream you must
fly the cargo ship between Sokarís ship
and the planet. If we do not come to
a complete stop we could miss part of
the matter stream. Your friends would
die. And thatís only if Sokar doesnít
blow us out of the sky
Tealíc switches the power back on
get in position!
Almost there, Tealíc
Apophis is still being prodded. The Guard runs in
Forgive me! The hellfires of Netu are
erupting, my lord
The shipís sensors indicate that the
moonís core ahs become unstable
That is impossible. I control Netu!
We must move the ship
Apophis takes his chance and stabs the Other Guard with the blade.
The Guard tries to attack him, but Apophis blocks it, spins round,
and slits his throat. Sokar stands up, and holds out his hand
device. He activates his personal shield just as Apophis grabs
the Guardís staff and fires it. Apophis then runs out of the
room. Sokar, ever the unhappy loser, roars [yes, roars. Thatís
what the CC on my DVD says]
Weíre getting mightily close to the mothership now
The room is still 'shaking it all about'
Marty finishes hot-wiring the rings
He runs to join the others
Weíre ready, Tealíc
The rings activate, and everyone looks up
Once clear, Tealíc opens the door to the back part
We have escaped
Iced tea. Air conditioning. Water.
Tealíc hands him a bottle
Tealíc returns Aldwinís Zat
Iím sorry I doubted you
I am as surprised as you that we survived
Marty passes the water to Sam
She passes it to Dad
Do you have any leave coming up?
Yeah, a little
I was thinking maybe we could take a
little father-daughter vacation together
Thatíd be great, Dad
I hear Alaskaís cold this time of year
She laughs softly, kisses his cheek, then hugs him
FX shot of the Teltak in hyperspace, and Jen gets all excited
as itís going from left to right instead of right to left as
it has been every other time
Netu is doing a great impression of a firework in the sky. The
camera pulls back until weíre on the balcony of the palace where
Apophis is watching this. He turns and faces the camera... and
