Ever since Joe, a happily married middle-class father, picked up an odd-looking stone marked with strange glyphs at a garage sale seven years ago, he has been seeing visions of a top-secret Air Force unit commanded by Jack O'Neill, who leads a team through an ancient portal called the Stargate. The visions start to take over his life, and his life is ruined, as his wife and child leave him, and he is left out of business. He takes it upon himself to find the truth and to find SG-1 and Jack O'Neill whom he has seen in his visions.
 Mistakes in the Script
- Joe tells his wife that O'Neill is head of the SGC, months before he is promoted
- Joe started seeing what Jack saw after the events of Season one, and so he shouldn't really know about the Nanites and Argos, he should know of it, but it seemed as though he has seen the whole even t unfolding.
|Joe: You're Brigadier General Jack O'Neill, head of Stargate Command at Cheyenne Mountain. You used to command SG-1, which is now led by Lieutenant Colonel Samantha Carter. You once visited a planet called Argos and the nanites in your blood caused you to age artificially. You had the entire repository of the Ancients' knowledge downloaded into your brain - twice! You have a thing for The Simpsons, fishing, Mary Steenburgen, the colour peridot, and you're a terrible ping pong player.|
O'Neill: Have we met?
Joe: My name is Joe Spencer. I'm a barber. (He looks at Jack.) It's all true, isn't it? Everything I've seen - the Stargate, the Goa'uld, the Asgards - it's all real. Tell me it's *real* - I need to know.
O'Neill: Well, first of all, Joe, I'm *not* a terrible ping pong player!
|O'Neill: He's a barber.|
Daniel: Broke into your house?
Daniel: Second week in a row.
O'Neill: I'm thinkin' dog.
Joe: You *could* try locking your front door.
|Fred: Look, no offence, but how many times can these folks save the world from Apophis? What's it up to now? Five, six times?|
Joe: This story's about Anubis. Apophis is dead.
Fred: What's the diff? You know what I'm sayin'? It's gettin' a little repetitive. I mean, c'mon now - there must be other things we can talk about besides SG-1.
|Bert: They rejected "Hathor"?! Oh, but it was gold!|
|Joe: I tell you what - you get all your chores done and I'll finish the story tomorrow.|
Andy: Chores?! What are we, Amish?!
|Joe: Between you and me, I totally see the analogy - Burns as Goa'uld.|
|Joe: Doctor Jackson, can I just say, thank goodness you're back. (He shakes his hand.) Not that Jonas was a bad guy, but after all you've been through together, you belong here with SG-1.|
|Carter: Wait a second - if the stones work the way Daniel says, shouldn't General O'Neill have been able to see elements of Joe's life as well?|
Daniel: Theoretically, yes, he would.
Jack has a flash back
O'Neill: Bowling league, Thursday nights?
Joe: You saw that?!
O'Neill: You got game, son!
Daniel: Wait a minute. Jack - you've been seeing parts of the life of a barber in Indiana for seven years and you never mentioned it?
O'Neill: Yeah, sure I did. I know I did.
Carter: No. No, you didn't, sir.
O'Neill: I didn't?
Daniel: You didn't find that the least bit odd?
O'Neill: Actually, no - I found it quite ... relaxing.
