General Hammond announces his intention to retire and step down as head of SGC. When the new commander, Major General Bauer, arrives he is every bit as bad as SG-1 feared.

Jack takes gardening leave and goes to investigate Hammond's mysterious desire to suddenly "retire" this takes him back into the company of Maybourne and Senator Kinsey.
 General Bloopers
- When Maybourne "accesses the internet" in the apartment, the URL displayed in his browser clearly begins with "file:", which means that its a file on his computer and not the internet
|O'Neill: About what you owe me...|
Hammond: Anything I can do
O'Neill: Well nothing right now but one day I may ask you to buy back my soul
|Maybourne: I need to know you're gonna see this thing through|
O'Neill: Under no other circumstances would I sit here and watch you eat.
|O'Neill: If it wasn't for SG1 you'd be sitting there with a snake in your head instead of your head up your ass.|
|Bauer: In the future you might want to include bullet point summaries. Makes for an easier read.|
O'Neill: Bullet point summaries.
Bauer: Is there a problem with that?
O'Neill: General, I realise the format of my reports is of vital importance and if you'd like, some day we can get together and talk about fonts and margins, but right now I like to discuss the fact you're dismantling my team without discussion
|Hammond: Are you serious?|
O'Neill: For once yes
|Kinsey: Oh please, given the chance half of all American citizens won't even vote and the half that do vote are too stupid to know what they're doing|
O'Neill: Which explains how you got elected
|Kinsey: Colonel, have you completely taken leave of your senses?|
O'Neill: I've been hanging round Maybourne, what does that say?
|Maybourne: Nice of you to come by. I don't get a lot of visitors.|
O'Neill: I find that hard to believe
|Teal'c: On Chulak, when a great warrior retires from the field of battle it is custom to sing a song of lament. Fortunately we are not on Chulak.|
|Kinsey: How dare you come into my house waving a gun?|
O'Neill: Not waving. Pointing.
|Kinsey: When this is over I promise you'll regret the day we ever met.|
O'Neill: Oh that day has come and gone, Senator
|O'Neill: Afternoon ma'am. I'm Mr Starsky and this is Hutch|
|Mrs Kinsey: He seems to like you Mr Starsky?|
O'Neill: Birds of feather, ma'am
Kinsey: Dear, Starsky and Hutch is an old TV show
Mrs Kinsey: Oh so you're actors then?
|Apartment Block- Empty room with just a table and computer|
O'Neill: (To Maybourne) Have you heard of IKEA???
