Memorable Moments


  • At no point did they officially give Dr. Jackson permission to join SG-1 and 2 on the mission, however they specifically mentioned that he was not to go with them.
  • In the scene where the Goa'uld are choosing new hosts, the Jaffa do not pull aside the curtains from Apophis' litter, forcing him to stumble through them in a clumsy -- and decidedly un-god like - fashion. What's the point of having an honor guard if they're going to allow him to make such an undignified entrance?
  • Major Kawalsky is called "Captain" twice and he had the captain rank pins on his combat uniform yet on the dress uniform he had the major pins.
  • The woman that the Jaffa took from the SGC said she was a Sergeant in the USAF but she had the senior airman insignia on her uniform.
  • When Apophis's servants were cutting the clothes off the women, you can clearly see that they didn't actually cut their clothes off but faked and also you can hear the ripping sound that occurs when you tear Velcro off!


Jack: Help me! I can save these people!
Teal'c: Many have said that... (shoots his fellow Jaffa) ...but you are the first one I believe.
