|Preceded by:||Point of View|
SG-1 get captured by a bounty hunter (Aris Bock) while visiting a new planet. He wasn't looking for them, they were a bonus, he was trying to capture a Goa'uld Kelt'ar for Sok'ar. He offers to set them free if they help him capture Kel'tar - not having a lot of choice they agree. Things get complicated when they discover that Kelt'ar is a Tok'ra not a Goa'uld, a distinction Aris seems unable or unwilling to accept. Can they get Aris to see the error of his ways?
 Episode Trivia
- Mark Holden has trouble pronouncing "Goa'uld" and so he pronounces it as "gouh'ld"
|Carter: Sir, he isn't Goa'uld.|
O'Neill: And? But? So? Therefore?
|O'Neill: Daniel. Would you come here a moment? What do you think this is?|
Daniel: Looks like a countdown
O'Neill: Of course it is. Oh, Teal'c? Would these ships have any kind of self-destruct mechanism?
Teal'c: It is possible
Daniel: We just lost a digit.
O'Neill: Of course we did
|O'Neill: Who are you?|
Aris: Arris Bock. Perhaps you've heard of me?
O'Neill: Ah, not I. Teal'c?
Teal'c: I have not.
Aris: Well, that's disappointing. I'm one of the galaxy's greatest hunters.
O'Neill: Not ringin' a bell, sorry.
Aris: Well, I know you. Captain Samantha Carter. Dr. Daniel Jackson. The Jaffa traitor Teal'c, and Colonel Jack O'Neill.
O'Neill: Well, fancy that. We're famous
|Aris: Dr. Jackson, if you don't mind, treating my wound|
Daniel: I'm an archaeologist
Aris: I know, but you're also a doctor
Daniel: Of archaeology
Aris: Never mind. Captain! You must have some medical training.
Carter: Actually, I'm a Major now.
Aris: Oh, well, how important. I'll inform the galaxy. Can you get over here now and help me, Major?
|Daniel: So, ah, what do you expect to get for us?"|
Aris: Well, ah, Teal'c is worth the most. The System Lords would love to make a good example of him. And Carter here, well, she has the memories of the Tok'ra Jolinar. And you, O'Neill, you're considered, well, you're a pain in the mikta.
Daniel: What about...what about me?
Aris:: You? Probably happy to get a day's rations for you
Daniel: Oh. A day's rations
Daniel: Trade you
|Daniel: And how do we know we can trust you?|
Aris:: My word is good on over 2,000 planets
O'Neill: There are billions
|O'Neill: You won't blow up your ship|
Aris: Maybe I will
O'Neill: While you're in it?!?
|Daniel: It opened when he said that word. Bark something|
O'Neill: Okay. Almond Bark. Barcalounger. Beetlejuice!
|O'Neill: So we'll fly it to a closer planet with a stargate.|
Daniel: Good thinking
O'Neill: It happens
|O'Neill: How does one goa'uld fire weapons from different directions?|
Teal'c: Tacluchnatagamuntorons - tacs
|O'Neill: Well, we're exactly one zat gun short of actually having a zat gun.|
Aris: A 'zat gun'?
O'Neill: Drop the 'nik'atel.
Aris: (shrugs) Hmmm... I guess it does save a bit of effort.
|O'Neill: Teal'c, how fast will this unit fly?|
Teal'c: I believe it is capable of travelling twice the speed of light.
O'Neill: Nice, home for dinner!
Carter: Sir, if you 're thinking of trying to steal the ship and fly it back to earth, even at 372000 miles per second it would still take us 10 years to fly that far.
O'Neill: Be sure to leave the dog out.
|O'Neill: You know, if you really were the greatest bounty hunter in the galaxy, you'd grab that Goa'uld yourself and turn us all in.|
Aris: What, and miss the chance of watching the great Jack O'Neill in action?
|Aris: Oh, ah, Dr. Jackson, I was lying to you before. The price on your head is much more than a day's ration. Actually, the Goa'uld want to see you dead as much as anyone for figuring out the Stargate.|
Daniel: Thank you. That...doesn't make me feel any better
|Korra: Somehow I must find a way to pay tribute to what you have done for me and the Tok'ra|
Teal'c: There is no need.
Aris: Hey, guys, what about me? Don't I get a thank you?
Carter: For doing the right thing for a change?
Aris: Well, it's kind of a backhanded show of appreciation...but I'll take it.
|Aris: Oh, this is so beautiful, Really, I mean I'm starting to tear up here. But we got to go. Now!|
