"THE OTHER GUYS"
We see a pyramid with a Stargate in front of it. In the foreground
is a lake and then several deathgliders whiz over head. Also
we hear music from the first season (and the movie) in the background.
Next we see a First Prime walking down a corridor lined with
other Jaffa. The First Prime kneels down, holding his staff weapon.
"I have a task for you Her'ak." (Khonsu
is sitting on a "throne". Behind him
is a red wall on which several swords
are arranged and near the top of the
wall, a Batleth is also hanging on
"How may I serve you, my Lord?"
"This mission is of great importance
so there's not much time. If you succeed,
Anubis himself will be most pleased."
(Her'ak smiles and Khonsu rises from
his throne.) "I have learned the location
of certain enemies. They are currently
vulnerable. You will take my Ha'tak,
capture them and bring them to me...alive."
"My Lord, may I ask who is so valuable?"
"Three humans and a Jaffa known to the
Tau'ri as SG-1."
We see lots of sand and several ruins. There are two men dressed
in sand camo walking among the ruins and working with a partially
uncovered ring transporter.
"I calculate platform mass at 12.9 metric
tons, consistent with the one on P4X-233."
"...and every other ring transporter
we've measured. It suggests some sort
of standardization, don't ya think?"
"You think the Goa'uld have a big plant
somewhere that just stamps these things
"Jay, how's it coming with the energy
levels left in that power cell?" (He's
talking to someone off camera.) "Jay?"
(There is no response. He is joined
by Coombs as the two approach Jay Felger
from behind.) "The power cell?"
"The power cell."
"Yeah, yeah I'm working on it."
"No you're not."
"Look at them." (Walking away from Coombs
and Meyers, as the camera pans to show
him walking closer, but still a long
way away from Teal'c and Jack.) "They
are so cool."
"Jay...enough already? It's embarrassing."
"Not to mention unprofessional."
"Guys, we're in the presence of greatness
here. The best of the best...and here
we are working along side them...savor
the moment, fellas. Savor the moment."
"Come on, Felger. We're studying an
old piece of Goa'uld technology. They're
babysitting us." (He turns around to
return to the ring transporter.)
"What do you think they're talking about,
right now?" (Coombs shakes his head
and turns to join Meyers.)
The camera is now on Jack and Teal'c.
"So, T, who you takin' in the Cup?"
(Teal'c looks at Jack.) "Lord Stanley's
Cup?" (Teal'c's raises his left eyebrow.)
"Hockey? Remember with the ice and skating?"
(Teal'c raises both eyebrows, slightly.)
"We went to a game last year?"
"Indeed. I believe the Canucks of Vancouver
are superior warriors."
"Canucks, eh?" (Jack pauses for a moment.)
"So, lunch?" (He heads to where the
three scientists are and Teal'c follows.)
"Here they come..." (He quickly heads
to where Coombs is holding a laptop
computer and looks over his shoulder.)
"Yes, yes, that does look like a very
important breakthrough. Good work Coombs."
(Pats Coombs on the back.) "Carry on."
"Definitely, yes. Big stuff goin' on
here...big. I can give you a full report,
if you want."
"Save it for Carter. We just came for
the fine cuisine." (Jack looks at he
stack of MREs and shakes his head slightly.)
"Of course, yeah. I mean her...her DHD
reports are unbelievable, aren't they?
I mean, she is single-handedly revolutionizing
our knowledge of Stargate technology."
(He looks at both Teal'c and Jack, who
seem to be ignoring him as they look
over the MREs.) "Any word on how that's
"No." (Jack hands a pouch to Teal'c.)
"No, No. Turkey there..." (Teal'c smiles
as he accepts the pouch.) "I guess I'll
just get back to work, then?"
"Are you nearing the completion of your
"Ow...Jeez...who put that scanner there?"
"Uh, well, it may be a few more days,
"What's your time frame there?"
"Um, a day or so...you know, but then
you guys can get right back to saving
the world again..." (He double-punches
Jack's shoulder.) "Heh, heh, heh, for
the seventh time."
"What, you're counting?"
"We just received an urgent message
from General Hammond."
Jack (looks at Felger who is very close and listening over his
shoulder) "Roger that...we're on our way."
We hear a crashing sound off camera.
"Oh, good one. That's only worth about
two-hundred thousand dollars."
"We gotta check something out."
"Can I help?"
"No. As a matter of fact, stay here.
If we're not back in an hour, get to
the gate...dial home. Got it?"
"Well, what could go wrong?"
Jack walks off camera and Felger stares after them.
Felger comes running down the slope
that Jack and Teal'c had walked away
on earlier. He approaches Coombs and
Meyers who are kneeling over equipment.
"Aren't you guys the slightest bit worried
"They'll be back, Felger. Can't you
see? They're just having fun with you."
"What are you talking about? There's
something going on out there."
"Oh, please...huh? They're just tired
of your butt-snorkeling." (mockingly)
"So tell me how you finally defeated
Apophis, Colonel O'Neill...Oh, Major
Carter, I based my doctoral thesis on
your amazing wormhole stability theories..."
"Bite me, Coombs! At least my heroes
exist. If this was a 'Trek convention,
you'd be all dressed up like a Klingon..."
"Vulan, Felger, Vulcan! And I don't
know how you can call yourself a scientist
and not worship at the alter of Roddenberry..."
"Oooh, how we gonna get outta this one,
Captain? Well, I don't know...something
to do with the tachyon emitter?"
"Guys...knock it off." (The two stop
and look at each other.) "Now what say
we hook up the Naquadah generator and
see if we can't get this baby started?"
They kneel down beside Meyers and suddenly an Alkesh zips overhead
toward the direction that SG-1 has gone. Coombs, buries his head
in his arms and Felger ducks, but quickly looks up to follow
the Alkesh. They all three stand.
"Was that what I think it was?"
"An Alkesh...mid-range Goa'uld attack
"But this planet was supposedly abandoned
centuries ago. There isn't even anything
"SG-1." Felger runs to grab a radio
off a box.) "Colonel O'Neill...Felger.
We just saw an Alkesh."
Cut to where SG-1 is.
"I know! Stay put! Remember what I told
you! Wait till it's clear, get to the
gate, report to Hammond!"
"Colonel O'Neill? Major Carter?"
A firefight between SG-1 and the attacking Jaffa ensues. The
Alkesh fires multiple rounds behind SG-1, creating a wall of
fire behind them. The sounds of the firefight can be heard where
the scientists are.
"Oh, they're in trouble." (He takes
off running in the direction of the
"Hey! Where you goin', Felger? He told
us to stay put."
Felger ignores them. Meyers grabs Coombs and drags him along
to follow Felger.
"Colonel O'Neill...Major Carter..."
Felger gets no response, but then flops down on his stomach as
he reaches a bluff overlooking the fight.
"This is ridiculous, Felger. You're
gonna get us all..."
Meyers then pulls Coombs down to his stomach too.
All three look on with concerned expressions on their faces.
"Oh, my God..."
We see SG-1 being led by the Jaffa toward the Alkesh.
The three scientist are running back to the ruins and the ring
"Wait, wait, wait, wait...you mean do
something? What do you mean? Do something?
You're totally out of your mind, Felger.
Mission protocol clearly states that
if something goes wrong, we are to return
to Stargate Command immediately. And
you know what? Something went wrong."
"Colonel O'Neill said it himself...we
have to go back to Earth..."
"I know what he said, but I'm the senior
advisor on this mission and I'm making
a command decision..."
"You're a lecturer in residence at M.
I. T. ..."
"Laugh all you want, but I studied every
mission SG-1's ever been on, and the
one thing they all have in common? They
never leave a man behind....ever."
"Technically, they're not behind...we
"Meyers, you go back through the gate...tell
General Hammond what's happened."
"What about us?"
"We're goin' after SG-1."
"You know that ship must have taken
them back to the mother ship out in
orbit. We can use this platform to ring
up to it, but we have to act now before
they're out of range."
"Oh...what? You want their deaths on
"You're just adding our deaths to theirs."
"Would you go?!" (Meyers gives him a
look and then turns and begins running
toward the 'gate. Felger brings a box
back and kneels down beside the transporter
again - to Coombs): "Help me calibrate
"Jay...we haven't run any test...we
have no idea how stable the link will
be, assuming we can get one." (Felger
removes a crystal from under a panel
on the ring. He places a probe from
the generator in place of the crystal
- soon crystals around the generator
probe begin to glow.)
"We're not outta range."
"Jay...are you sure about his?"
"Think about it, Simon...what would
Colonel O'Neill do if he was here now?"
"You want me to shoot you?"
The rings are activated and seconds later both are on the mother
ship. Coombs immediately ducks as Felger closes his eyes and
begins firing the pistol while turning around in a circle. He
emptys his clip.
"Nicely done. We were alone, but that'll
probably change now."
secure. Let's...let's move out."
They both walk through a door into a corridor.
Alarm klaxons are sounding and we see General Hammond walk up
behind Sgt. Davis (who is wearing his glasses on his forehead).
"What've we got, Sergeant?"
"It's SG-1's code, sir."
"Open the iris."
Hammond walks down to the 'gate room as Meyers comes through,
out of breath.
"SG-1... they...took SG-1..."
"Slow down, son. Take it easy. Where's
the rest of your team?"
"Ship...lot's of Jaffa...SG-1 captured...flew
"Where are professors Felger and Coombs?"
"They used the rings at the ruins to
go up to the ship...to rescue SG-1."
"They did what!"
Felger and Coombs are crawling through some time of passageway
(somewhat like a Jefferies tube in Star Trek).
"Damn it, Felger. This cannot be the
"I swear...it's up here and to the left."
"That's what you said three lefts ago."
"Head..." (Coombs bumps his head.) "He,
HA'TAL HOLDING CELL.
Sam and Jonas are sitting on one bench, Teal'c and Jack are sitting
on a bench on the opposite side of the room.
"How come you're not smiling?"
"Should I be?"
"Well, it is your first time being capture
by a Goa'uld."
"Huh...Funny." (He tilts his head back
to lean on the wall and directs one
at Jack). "So what now?"
"Shouldn't we be trying to escape?"
"Oddly, no." (He smiles) "It won't be
"Oh, some overdressed, over-the-top
bad guy floats in gloating about whatever
evil fate awaits us." (Jack smiles slightly,
Jonas nods his head, Jack hears something.)
"Wait for it..." (The outer door to
the cell opens and then the cell door
opens as Her'ak and several Jaffa walk
in.) "See?" (Jack stands.)
"Colonel O'Neill...Major Carter...the
so-called greatest of all Tau'ri warriors...and
the Sholva, Teal'c. " (Jack turns and
proudly places a hand on Teal'c's shoulder.
He, too, is now standing. Her'ak turns
toward Jonas.) "You I'm not familiar
"Who are you?"
"I am Her'ak, First Prime to Lord Khonsu
of Amon Shek."
"Very impressive. Got a resumé?"
"I captured you."
"Yes...right...you did. Well done. You
got the job."
"I had been looking forward to a great
challenge than the one you provided.
However, the result has yielded the
same consequence. You belong to my master
now." (Her'ak turns and they all leave.)
"Carter...be honest...the resum é gag?"
(Sam looks at Jack, Jonas looks at Jack.)
"It needs work, O'Neill."
ELSEWHERE ON THE HA'TAK
The two professors are opening a panel in the wall of the ship
(coming out of the Jefferies tube), though not quietly.
"I didn't do anything." (They finally
get out of the passage, stand up and
start walking down the hall.) "You have
no idea where you're going."
"Of course I do..."
"Oh yeah, then, what were we doing in
"Staying out of sight. Would you stop
worrying? I've studied blueprints of
these ships. Holding cells are this
"Oh, please...you've studied Goa'uld
mother ship blueprints?"
"Information's an SG team's greatest
"You know what an SG teams greatest
ally is? An SG team."
"Will you relax!? Okay...it's this way."
(They both walk toward the camera and
disappear off camera. Seconds later,
they appear back on camera and head
in the opposite direction.) "No...this
"I'm gonna kill you." (Felger is serpentine
walking down the corridor as Coombs
follows.) "Would you quite doing that?"
"Don't point the gun!" (They disappear
around the corner.)
SG-1 suddenly hear a strange whistling.
"Is that a...bird?"
"I do not believe so."
"These panels are held in place magnetically.
We have to cut the power."
"Who is that?"
A few bangs are heard.
Felger removes the panel and sets it aside, still obscuring part
of the view of the passageway he is in. Coombs is not visible
(obscured by the panel).
"Oh, Colonel O'Neill, are you all right,
"What...are you doing here?"
"Stand easy...we're here to rescue you!"
"Did he say we?"
"That's right...I have Coombs with me."
"Why look everybody...he's got Coombs
"You can thank us later...righ now we
have to get you out."
"Felger...just what part of "'gate home"
did you not understand?"
"Well, we just couldn't let our fellow
SG team members be taken..."
"What about never leave a man behind?"
"What about...we allowed ourselves to
be captured...on purpose?"
"We're on a mission, you nit!"
Jack and Teal'c are standing near the cell door. Felger and Coombs
are standing on the bench that Sam and Jonas had been sitting
on and Sam is standing next to the bench looking up at them.
Jonas is standing near where Jack and Teal'c had been sitting,
directly opposite Felger and Coombs.
"Please don't be angry...we just thought,
"It was Felger all the way. His idea
"Okay...well, I...I don't understand...I
mean, what do you mean, "you're on a
"The Goa'uld we're being taken to see
is actually an undercover Tok'ra."
Felger and Coombs step down to stand on either side and slightly
in front of Sam.
"I see. Uh, well...why the ruse?"
"Very few of Khonsu's Jaffa know his
true identity. Her'ak and his men had
to believe they had truly captured us."
"See, I knew it was too easy. I mean
you guys have taken out more Jaffa than
that before, right?"
"Professor, we know you meant well,
but you've actually put us in a really
"Well, why not tell us?"
"Because you didn't need to know."
"We've been on standby for weeks, waiting
to hear from the Tok'ra. Now we didn't
know where or when this ambush would
occur. Obviously, you weren't supposed
to be there when it went down, but when
we finally did get the word, it was
too late to send you home first..."
"Why didn't this Khonsu just, y'know,
send the intel to you? I mean, why the
big song and dance?"
"He's collected vital information on
how and where Anubis is getting his
"As we have said, Khonsu's true loyalties
are carefully hidden. He could trust
no one to carry such information in
"He needs to remain undercover to continue
"So did we."
"Way to go, Felger."
"Wait a minute, we got up here undetected.
We haven't ruined anything yet. Nobody
knows we're here."
Just then, Teal'c turns his head toward the door because he hears
Teal'c walks toward Sam and the two professors. Two Jaffa come
through the door and the first place they look is at Jack, who
has moved to stand on the bench near the panel where the two
professors had been previously. Next they see Sam standing to
Teal'c's right and Jonas on his left as Teal'c stands, feet apart,
arms crossed between the two.
"I am Dol'ok, free Jaffa, loyal to Khonsu,
the Tok'ra. Thank you for your patience."
"What patience? Can we get our weapons
back? Not that we don't trust you..."
"Soon...as you are aware, this incarceration
is for your own protection. There are
very few of us among the ranks, but
we have come to assure you that you
are, indeed, not alone."
Just then, Dol'ok notices that there are two pair of feet behind
Teal'c. The two professors peek their heads out from behind the
"Who are they?"
Sam turns to look over her shoulder and the two professors quickly
"Look, there's, uh, been a little bit
of a mix-up here. Any chance you could
put these guys someplace safe, relatively
secure, till this is over?"
"I will do what I can?"
"Appreciate that." (Jack turns to the
others.) "Hey!" (The professors step
out sheepishly from behind Teal'c, Sam
and Jonas. They follow the Jaffa out
of the cell.) "Oy."
Khonsu is standing in front of a full wall screen. Her'ak is
making a report (on the screen).
"As ordered, we have SG-1 alive and
"Excellent. You have done well, Her'ak.
I will be sure to tell Lord Anubis of
your exemplary conduct when I relay
this victory to him."
"My thanks. Shall I interrogate the
prisoners on your behalf, my lord. Surely
there is much that they can reveal."
"No. When you arrive, bring them before
me. I will use my own methods to learn
what they know."
"As you wish, my lord."
HA'TAK CARGO BAY
Felger and Coombs are seated behind a stack of crates. Dol'ok
and his partner are placing the crates in front of the duo.
"Please do not venture from this place
until we have returned. Should you be
discovered, your lives would be forfeit."
"You got it."
The Jaffa leave.
"You try to help people, this is the
thanks you get."
"I should have shot you."
SG-1 and several Jaffa (Her'ak included) are beamed down to Khonsu's
pyramid. SG-1 are being escorted to a holding area.
"So...when do we get to meet this old...
"Ginsu" guy?" (Her'ak just looks at
him and motions them to follow him into
a room. Jack looks around.) "Nice..."
They are lead into a circular area in the center of the room.
As soon as all four of them are inside the circle, a force shield
is put up. Her'ak smiles slightly and leaves. Jack immediately
puts his hand out to test the shield.
"Ah!" (Grabbing his hand, he turns to
the others.) "Don't touch that." (Just
as Her'ak reaches the door.) "Hey, Her'ak!
What, no gloating? Take some pride in
your work, son."
"You shall all be forced to bow before
my master soon enough." (He continues
on out the door.)
"You know...this whole "imprisoned for
our own protection" is getting a little
"What choice do we have? If we want
this information, we have to trust Khonsu."
THE HA'TAK CARGO BAY
"I knew I should have updated my will
before agreeing to off-world assignments."
"You are not going to die, Coombs."
<*note: suddenly, the closed-captioning
has spelled Coombs, before it had been
Combs - * Shrug*>
"Oh, come on, Felger. We might as well
be wearing red shirts."
"I don't get that..."
Coombs is about to answer when the door to the cargo bay opens
and both men stop talking to listen. They peek between crates
to see Dol'ok and his partner enter the bay. Seconds later, the
partner is shot from behind. Dol'ok turns and tries to get his
zat out, but he is shot by a staff weapon before he can fire.
Three Jaffa enter the cargo bay. One walks up to Dol'ok and spits
out "Sholva." He then looks around the bay. For a second, you
think he notices the two professors, but eventually he turns
and they all leave the cargo bay. The door shuts behind them.
The two professors move a couple of crates, so they can see better.
"Oh, my God...I think I'm gonna throw
"Oh, these poor bastards..."
"Jay, I can't do this...I gotta get
outta here." (He steps out from behind
the crates and heads for the door.)
"Simon, Simon, Simon, Simon..."
"No! I'm not a soldier. I teach applied
math at Yale! I have a vespa and two
"Just get ahold of yourself! Don't you
get it, Simon? Jaffa do not kill each
other for fun."
"Okay...I don't know that for sure...I
don't, but this looks like an execution.
Something hinky's definitely going on
here and it's up to you and I to find
out what it is."
"Yeah, it's a word."
"In what dictionary?"
Felger turns away, not wanting to continue the bickering. Suddenly
"I have a plan."
A ring transporter activates and suddenly two unusual looking
Jaffa pop up on the planet. They walk past the other Jaffa, continuing
on their way in silence until they reach an area where there
are no other Jaffa.
"Is it okay for me to have a heart attack
now? God, I don't know why I let you
talk me into this."
"Because if we stayed on that ship,
we'd both be dead right now, and you
"Oh, yeah, and we're better off down
"When are you going to start trusting
me, Simon? I have four post-graduate
"...And not one of them cover Jaffa
Suddenly, a Jaffa holding a staff weapon walks up behind them.
"What are you doing here?"
"He is sick." (Coombs, does indeed look
ill.) "I believe it is something he
ate." (Coombs vomits. Felger takes the
opportunity as the Jaffa is temporarily
confused to pull out a Zat and shoot
the Jaffa. Coombs straightens up and
Felger pats him on the shoulder.) "Nicely
done, nicely done."
"Jay...you just shot that guy. I mean
you really shot him."
"No, zatted...that's completely different."
"He's...Come on, gotta go, gotta go."
KHONSU'S THRONE ROOM
Her'ak leads several Jaffa into the room. Khonsu is seated on
The camera pans back past Her'ak to reveal that our stalwart
professors are among the Jaffa who have lined up in the back.
"Where are the prisoners?" (Her'ak refuses
to speak. Khonsu stands.) "Answer me.
Where is SG-1?"
"They are no longer your concern." (Her'ak
uses the staff weapon on Khonsu.)
Several staff weapons are activated and pointed at Her'ak as
he walks up to stand on Khonsu's platform.
"We are betrayed, brothers. Our God
was not who he claimed to be." (Khonsu
is weakly trying to sit up.) "Khonsu
is Tok'ra. He would weaken us like a
cancer from within, destroying our one
true God...Anubis" (Her'ak and Khonsu
stare at each other and Her'ak fires
his staff weapon again...at close range.
Felger and Coombs are horrified.) "I
am in command now until our lord returns
to reward us and claim his prize. Spread
the word among every rank. Be ready."
(He sits on Khonsu's throne.) "Anubis
KHONSU'S THRONE ROOM
SG-1 are escorted in by several Jaffa.
"Khonsu is dead."
"Dead? Completely dead or semi-dead?
You guys seem to have a grey area in
"His true loyalties were well known.
Once his betrayal bore fruit, his existence
was no longer required."
"You callin' us fruit?" (Suddenly Jack
smashes his elbow into the nose of the
Jaffa standing behind him. Teal'c snags
a staff weapon and twists the head of
another Jaffa. However, they are hopelessly
outnumbered and Jack and Teal'c are
zatted as Sam and Jonas are subdued.
Her'ak picks up a pain stick and walks
up to Jack. He lets Jack have it for
a second or two. The familiar glow eminates
from Jack's mouth as he screams.) "
Arg! Crap! I hate that thing."
"Now that, Colonel O'Neill, is what
I call "pride in my work"."
"I want names, Colonel, of all the Tok'ra
hiding within Anubis' ranks."
"Oh...ask Khonsu. Oh, wait! You can't.
You killed him." (Her'ak hits Jack with
the pain stick again. Jack screams again.)
"We don't know anything."
"He's not lying. Our orders were to
make contact with Khonsu. That's it.
Any information you want, died with
"Ah, forget it, Carter. He's just the
warm-up band and he knows it."
"No matter what you have endured, you
have never experienced the likes of
what Anubis is capable of."
"You ended that sentence with a preposition!
SG-1 are lead out of the throne room.
Hammond and Davis are in the control room.
"That was his last transmission?"
Hammond rubs his head, gets up and turns to leave when Meyers
"Excuse me, sir...anything on SG-1?"
"As a matter of fact, we just got a
message from one of our Jaffa allies.
Apparently, word has filtered through
Anubis' rank that Khonsu was exposed
as a Tok'ra and that he' s been murdered."
"SG-1 is still in the custody of the
Jaffa who've overthrown Khonsu and Anubis
himself is on the way. There's been
no mention of Felger and Coombs."
"Is there no chance of mounting some
sort of rescue? I'd be happy to volunteer."
"I appreciate that, but the planet's
very heavily guarded. That was one of
the reasons SG-1 had to go in undercover."
(Hammond starts to leave, but he is
stopped by Meyers.)
"Sir...with all due respect, I thought
you didn't leave people behind."
"I don't like this any more than you
do, but I'm not going to send good men
to their deaths for nothing, especially
considering the sketchy nature of the
intel we have on the situation. There's
just nothing we can do at this time.
I'm afraid if SG-1 is going to get out
of this mess, they're going to have
to do it on their own."
Felger and Coombs are skulking around the pyramid. Coombs walks
up behind Felger and past him. Felger grabs Coombs.
"Don't do that."
"All right. So maybe you did study the
Goa'uld mothership plans, but how can
you possibly know where we're going
"Oh...Jay, this is bad."
"Look, our best shot is just to get
back to SGC, tell them what happened,
where SG-1 is and..."
"Look, even if we could get through
the 'gate, there's no telling when Abubis
will arrive. Chances are SG-1 will be
long gone or dead by the time they mount
a rescue mission, if they're willing
to send one at all."
"Well, all right, what about SG-1 then,
huh? If they're the big heroes you say
they are then they can just bust themselves
"Come on, Coombs! This op is up to us
and you know it."
"Op, op, op, op! It's operation."
"Well, just say operation then. Say
operation like normal people."
"Keep your voice down."
Felger and Coombs walk into a large circular room which is quite
empty except for a pillar in the middle of the room. The door
closes behind them and the approach the piller.
"We have to learn everything we can
about this place, find some weakness
and exploit it."
"Uh-huh! How the heck are we supposed
to do that?" (Felger notices a panel
on the pillar. He touches it and the
piller opens up to reveal a control
center.) "How'd you know how to do that?"
"Well, the writing in the hall said
this was the control room."
"I thought you said you read Goa'uld."
"I do...sort of."
"Well, this should be able to tell us
everything we need to know."
They play with a few crystals and suddenly a large holographic
display pops up.
"This is not good."
SG-1. This is Felger. Do you copy? Colonel
All of SG-1 sits up, suddenly very alert.
"No. This...is not good."
"Don't be mad, sir. Are you all right?
Is everyone else with you?"
"Yeah. Where are you?"
"We're inside the pyramid, sir. We're
hiding in the control room."
"Colonel, they could have access to
the pyramid security systems, including
force shield controls."
"We're working on it."
"You should be able to bring up the
pyramid schematics. Within the security
system files, you'll find a list of
force shield codes."
"Ya...there's a lot of stuff here, Major.
"Felger...we need weapons."
"Um, looks like there's an armory at
the end of the hall. Either that or
"I can do this...
"On my way, sir." (Then to Coombs) "You
get the shield down...and use your radio
from now on."
"This is unbelievable. Everything is
BACK IN SG-1'S CELL
"Coombs? What's goin' on?"
"I've almost got it."
The force shield drops.
"Nice." (He walks toward the entrance,
stops, puts his hand out to test that
the force shield is really down, then
continues out of the circular area.)
As he approaches the door, he hears someone coming, so he motions
to have Teal'c stand on the opposite side of the door from him
and the wait, ready to ambush whomever walks in. Teal'c starts
to hit the person and stops as he sees Felger come in, dressed
in Jaffa gear and carrying several Zats. He spills several of
them on the floor as he tries to avoid being hit by Teal'c.
"All right, look professor, this little
stunt of yours does not excuse the fact
that you disobeyed a direct order from
me...twice. Do it again...I'll shoot
ya. Are we..."
"Do you wanna hear the rest of my plan?"
"I said stay on the radio..."
"Just....tell me what you know."
"Okay. There's a shield around the pyramid.
The Stargate's outside that."
"So Coombs could get the shield down."
"Right. Then all we have to do is take
out the Jaffa guarding the 'gate. Coombs
can ring himself out to the ring platform
and then we all go home. Heh, heh, piece
"We take out the Jaffa."
"We..." (stops nodding and looks at
Jack ) "as in you."
"A dozen, tops."
"Yeah, and they got some of those really
"Good plan, Felger, good plan."
"Come on, you're SG-1. This is what
They all look at each other as Felger watches them.
They all leave the cell and begin walking the corridors.
"Coombs, talk to me."
"Okay...uh, uh, hang another left...and
then two rights...and then there'll
be a door and beyond that is daylight."
They walk, following Coombs directions until they approach the
door. Jack signals for Carter and Felger to open the door. Sam
pushes the buttons on the control panel that should open the
door and nothing happens. She tries again...nothing. She looks
"I'm sorry. This coding is very confusing.
Just...just wait a second."
Felger walks back to face Jack.
"I can't believe that I'm here...with
"Yeah...I'm havin' the same problem."
"This is great! You know, sneakin' around
with you guys in a Goa'uld pyramid on
some alien planet...the only thing missin'
is some Jaffa chasing us."
Sounds of approaching footsteps can be heard.
"Okay. That's not my fault because there's
no possible..." (Into his radio, walking
back to the door) "Simon, Simon, hurry
up, we've got company..."
"Wait, wait, wait!"
"Give me that." (into the radio) "Now,
"I got it!"
The door opens and they all go outside. The door closes and the
approaching Jaffa continue on their way, never having noticed
the door closing.
"Shield is down."
"Way to go, Simon!"
"Shush!" (into the radio) "Get your
ass to the nearest ring transport and
wait for my signal."
"Thank you, thank you, thank you. You've
been a great audience, but I really
must be..." (He opens the door to see
several Jaffa waiting and quickly closes
the door again.)
"Staying...God." (He turns around and
head over to hide behind the control
There are many Jaffa near the Stargate
Jack (off camera) "Well, he wasn't kidding...that's a lot of
Jaffa. Carter, Jonas...you're target is that center gun placement."
"Teal'c, you're with me. Now, is there
anything else we need to discuss?"
"No, sir, No, sir. I'm going to stay
in this very spot. Even if I see you
writhing in agony, calling my name,
I'll be here."
"Exactly. On my signal, get Coombs out
here." (He reluctantly hands Felger
Jonas and Carter Zat two Jaffa. O'Neill zats several more. Teal'c
rises out of the water to take out another.
"Jay...uh, I've got a problem here..."
THE PYRAMID CONTROL ROOM
Coombs is hiding behind the control panel and sounds of Jaffa
trying to break through the door can be heard. Suddenly cracks
appear in the door.
"I think I need a little help."
Jack, Jonas and Sam zat several more Jaffa. Suddely Sam stops
as she sees a Jaffa aiming a big gun at she and Jonas. He is
about to fire when he and the gun are blown up by Teal'c, who
has fired another big gun at him. Teal'c uses the big gun to
take out the remaining Jaffa. Soon SG-1 are converging near the
"The area is secure for the moment,
"Colonel O'Neill! Colonel O'Neill!"
(running wildly toward SG-1) "Colonel
"What are you doing? Get Coombs out
"Uhn...there's a slight problem there,
sir. He's stuck."
PYRAMID CONTROL ROOM
Coombs is still hiding behind the panel. The Jaffa are beginning
to break through.
"Jay...I don't think I'm gonna make
it outta here. You just go...you take
care of my cats, okay?"
BACK AT THE 'GATE
"No. n, n, no, no, no, Simon. I got
us into this mess. If your're staying,
I'm staying too."
"No one's staying! Can he ring us in?"
"Coombs...can you ring Colonel O'Neill
and Teal'c into the pyramid?"
Jack and Teal'c go to stand in the ring transporter.
"Give us five minutes...then..." (Jack
shrugs as the rings take he and Teal'c.)
PYRAMID CONTROL ROOM
The crack in the door is getting bigger when suddenly, the sounds
of zat fire and grunting can be heard from behind the door. Simon
starts to walk toward the door as the battle sounds die down.
He stops short as he hears banging begin on the door again. He
stands there...terrified of who is coming through. Suddenly,
O'Neill breaks through and peeks his head in the room.
"Let's go home."
BACK AT THE 'GATE
The ring transporter activates and deposits Jack, Teal'c and
Coombs on the platform just meters in front of the already active
Stargate. They are fired on as they run to the gate where Sam,
Jonas and Felger are waiting.
Felger "Simon, are you okay?"
Sam and Felger walks through. Jonas waits until they approach
the steps. Jonas, Teal'c and Coombs walk through as the fire
continues. Jack stands, hands spread out in front of the 'gate
as though he were accepting applause, then ducks through as a
shot comes very close to hitting him.
The 'gate room is decked out for an awards ceremony. Felger and
Coombs walk up the platform to the podium where Hammond is waiting.
Jack and Sam are standing on the left side of the podium. Felger
and Coombs take their place on the right side. Felger is wearing
a nice suit and Coombs is wearing a tux.
"For bravery in the face of grave danger,
I hereby award Simon Coombs and Jay
Felger, each, the Air Force Civilian
Award for Valor."
Hammond steps away from the podium and Jack steps up to it. He
opens two cases and take out two ribbons. He approaches the two
professors and places a pin on each lapel.
"Despite the fact that you gentlemen
disobeyed my orders, which, in my little
world, constitutes screwing up...twice,
the truth is, we wouldn't be here without
you. You are true heroes."
"Thank you, Colonel."
Jack shakes Coombs hand as well. Meyers, in the crowd, gives
them an excited double thumbs-up. Then Sam gives Coombs a peck
on the cheek. The crowd begins to applaud. As Sam approaches
Felger, she reaches up and takes his face in her hands. Then
she lays one on him...
Felger and Coombs are sitting in white lab coats. Coombs has
just poked Felger in the face.
"Snap out of it."
