Due to an explosion as the SG-1 team are going through the gate it malfuntions and Capt Carter and Col O'Neill find themselves trapped on an icy planet. Jack's badly hurt and the DHD is in a block of ice. Can Sam get the gate to work, or can the SGC figure out what happened and rescue them, before they freeze to death.
 General Blooper
- If there appeared to be nothing wrong with your DHD or Stargate, but you couldn't dial Earth, wouldn't it make sense to try dialling another friendly planet? Such as the Land of Light? From there, they could have gotten to Earth
 Dialling Sequence Blooper
- SG-1's iris code is received before the sound effect of the gate opening is heard.
- When dialling the hostile planet in search of O'Neill and Carter, the address dialed is yet again for Abydos (due to recycled footage)
|Carter: Night...(Eyes widen) Oh....Colonel....!|
O'Neill: It's my sidearm, I swear...
O'Neill: No giggling, please...!
Carter: If we don't make it, I won't have any regrets, you?
O'Neill: I'll regret dying...
|Jack, with a broken leg, and Carter's trying to dig the gate's DHD out of the ice and trying to figure out where they are and how to get out. In the blooper reel, Amanda Tapping is teasing Rick about his days on MacGuyver: |
Carter: You spent seven years on MacGuyver and you can't figure this one out? We got belt buckles and shoe laces and a piece of gum, build a nuclear reactor, for crying out loud. You used to be MacGuyver, MacGadget, MacGimmick, and now you're Mr. MacUseless.
Rick gets out of character and turns to the camera as the crew starts busting out laughing. Amanda dramatically throws herself on the DHD, then pleads to the camera
Carter: DEAR GOD, STUCK ON A GLACIER WITH MACGUYVER!!!
|Carter: Try to stay put, Sir, I think your leg's broken|
O'Neill: No, my leg's definitely broken. What's the bad news, 'cause unless they've redecorated the Gate room, I don't think we're in Kansas anymore
|Carter: With all the possible Stargates, a random search could easily take...10 years|
O'Neill: Not if they look here first.
Carter: Even if all SG teams started searching right now, the mathematical probability of them even?
Carter: I think too much.
|Carter: I've, uh, been thinking about how the Stargate might have malfunctioned|
Carter: Well, we don't totally understand how it works; but the theory we have so far is that the Gate creates an artificial wormhole, that somehow transfers an energized matter stream in one direction along an extra-dimensional conduit. I think the matter stream between Stargates got redirected, kind of like a...a lightning bolt jumping from one point to another in mid-strike. Now, I figure it had to have been the attack on P4A-771. The Gate itself was probably struck by enough energy during the firefight to influence the direction of the matter stream before we reached the other side. Colonel?
O'Neill: I'm sorry - I wasn't listening.
|Carter: Sshhh. Try to sleep.|
O'Neill: Is that what we're doing?
Carter: You're exhausted; you passed out. I just thought we had to combine body heat or we wouldn't make it through the night.
O'Neill: That's fine. It's just...very hard to sleep?with broken ribs when someone's lying on you.
|Daniel: (to Teal'c) What happens when you dial your own phone number? (Teal'c looks blank) Wrong person to ask. (to Hammond) What happens when you dial your own phone number?|
