With the Replicators destroyed, and the holy city of Dakara now in control of the Rebel Jaffa, the Jaffa must face the hardest part of the mission. They must keep their ground and prevent Anubis from retaking the city. In the meantime, Daniel must once again choose to ascend or return to Earth and risk death when Oma Desala gives him a second chance. In the meantime, Sam and Jack must deal with their personal relationships as they endeavour to define themselves after the loss of important people in their lives.
 Dialling Sequence Blooper
- The dialling computer shows the gate as "Idle" when Anubis dials Earth.
|Bra'tak: What our people will require is a youthful, vital, leadership, and that is something others are better suited to provide.|
Teal'c: You are only as old as you believe yourself to be.
Bra'tak: Talk to me in fifty years!
Teal'c: Indeed I will.
Carter: Thank you, sir
O'Neill: For what?
Carter: For being here for me.
|Daniel: So you're saying I can know Anubis is plotting to destroy all life in the galaxy and all I can do about it is stay here and contemplate my own enlightenment?|
Oma: You can eat your waffles
Daniel: No syrup?!
Oma: We don't need them here - just order what you'd like.
Daniel: OK, I'll have the truth, with a side order of clarity, please.
Oma: The Replicator version of Sam was in your head trying to access the knowledge buried in your subconscious, but you gained control of her instead. She killed you to stop you. That's where I stepped in. How's that?
Daniel: Pretty clear
Oma: Well, we aim to please. The customer comes first, you know!
|Carter: Pete Shanahan - Jacob Carter. Dad, this is Pete.|
Jacob: Not quite yet. You have to actually marry my daughter before you can call me that.
|O'Neill: All we know for sure is that he's missing.|
Carter: Sooner or later ...
O'Neill: Forget it! I'm not fallin' for it this time.
Carter: "Falling for it"?
O'Neill: Yeah! How many times have you thought he was gone, and then he shows up - in one form or another. I'm sorry, but we're not having a memorial service for someone who is not dead. (He turns his head and calls out to the room.) You hear that?! I'm not buyin' it! (He and Sam look around the room for a few seconds, then Jack turns to look at Sam again.) What? He's just waitin' for us to say a bunch of nice things about him. Next thing you know, he'll come waltzin' through that door, (he gestures to the closed door) like, right now. (He and Sam look hopefully at the door for several seconds but nothing happens.) Waltzing ... now.
|Pete: How 'bout ... Selmak?|
Carter: Ah! *He* thought you were very charming.
Pete: For a human.
Carter: Well, generally speaking, that's my type!
