[edit] Plot

When they realise that the fight against the Ori has started, General Landry recalls Sam from Area 51 in the hopes that her new weapon will destroy a force field placed on a Free Jaffa planet by the Ori. When Peaceful negotiations fail, the weapon is used, but instead of destroying the force field, it enhances it, and soon, the entire planet is threatened. The true motives of the Orii are soon revealed, and a sacrifice must be made to rectify the proble, but who will be the one to make the sacrifice?

[edit] Quotes

On Base. Jackson, Mitchell, Teal'c and Vala playing basketball. Aliens verses the Humans. Jackson passes to Mitchell it rebounds Vala grabbing it as Teal'c lifts her into the air and she drop the ball through the hoop.
Vala: Yeah! Woo!! (Teal'c drops her and they bop hips, Jackson and Mitchell laughing) You boys aren't going to let people from two different planets beat you at your own silly game are you?
Silly game isn't over yet.
That's my wing man (throws him the ball)
You need a new wing man (turns to Jackson)
I'm gonna kick your ass
(Shaking Hips) promises. Promises.
Landry: What can you tell me about him?
Vala: Honestly you don't want to know.
Landry: Honestly I do.
Vala: Why?
Landry: What do you say we go with the idea that I'm in charge and I've asked a simple question?
Mitchell: Why throw in with us? Why not stay with Ba'al or work for some other Goa'uld?
Landry: Well...look at it in terms of optics. We must look like major players now.
Teal'c: By defeating Anubis
Jackson: and... Most of the System Lords were killed by the Replicators, then we defeated the Replicators...
Mitchell: Wow... we look cool.
Landry: Don't let it go to your head
Vala: Have you seen his list of dietary requirements?
Landry: Already taken care of.
Jackson: Ripened Traqeel eggs?
Landry: We've got eggs. I don't know if they're ripe or not...
Nerous: I am Nerous
Landry: Major General Hank Landry. I'm in command of Stargate C...
Nerous: Yyyeess. Yes, I'm sure you're a very important person and you had very important reasons to subject me to your security precautions. But to meet you. (walks up to Teal'c) To look upon the face of the one.
The one what?
The one who inspired the great uprising, of course. oh The time of false Gods is at an end and no small part because of this man! *points at Teal'c, turns to Jackson* Nerous: Dr Daniel Jackson! It is rumored among the Goa'uld, that you alone defeated Anubis. Is that true?
Where'd you hear that?
Oh, I hear everything (heads over to Mitchell)
Ltd Colonel Cameron Mitchell. leader of SG-1
but...you're...you're not
Will he be here?
looks disappointer, looks at Mitchell again, walks over to Vala
And...and...You... you're not even Colonel Carter, are you??! This isn't at all the way I imagined it would be
Mitchell: And you're sharing this information with us, because?
Nerous: Why are you so surprised? We joined forces to destroy the Replicators
Teal'c: I have no recollection of your participation.
Nerous: Teal'c...You wound me. I was the one who figured out how to activate all the Stargate's in the galaxy at once! (silence) Didn't Baal mention that... to you?
That is so like him
Isn't it though?
Mitchell: 38 minutes is the maximum time a Stargate can stay open. That's a law of wormhole physics.
Vala: Not according to the Ori.
Landry: Jack...Jack...Jack! She practically invented the Mark 9 and you're the one who thinks we should use the damn thing! Why are you wasting valuable time saying no? I've read enough of your SG-1 mission reports to know that there were times when no one else but Samantha carter could have pulled your ass out of the fire. Well this is one of those times. (Landry turns to door, revealing Carter)
Carter: Reporting as ordered sir.
Landry: ...Yeah...she's standing right here. You're a funny man Jack. Very funny
'Mitchell: How good is this? got the band back together.
Carter: Uh so what's with the extra backup singer?
Mitchell: Ah, she's good fun. Plus, we figured if Jackson were to....
Teal'c: Die.
Mitchell: Yeah that's the word. It would jeopardize the mission.
Carter: when we spoke a couple of weeks ago, you said you thought the effects of the bracelets was wearing off.
Jackson: well It was. I just didn't want to put it to a test from the other side of the galaxy, so....
Vala: Wow... Just dying to get rid of me now, aren't you?
Jackson: No not dying to...
Vala: Oh no I know I'm not welcome here. Despite all my efforts to try and fit into your little Stargating club, you can all rest assured, that as soon as I can safely part Daniel's company without killing the both of us, I will. Oh... and you! (points at Landry in the control room) You will wish you'd listened to me when I said, letting the Goa'uld come here was a mistake!
Mitchell: Request permission to come aboard!
Pendergast: Shaft...Welcome back to the Prometheus.
Mitchell: Thank you Colonel
Carter: Shaft?
Mitchell: My call sign. Cam. Shaft.
Carter: Oh.
Vala: Yeah. Disappointing, isn't it?
Vala: What is a mark nine, exactly?
Mitchell: It's also known as a gate buster.
Vala: mmm. Sounds big.
Mitchell: Some might say, too big
Vala: Really? I've always thought there's no such thing.
Jackson: Vala this is a military vessel? (pulls shawl off from round her neck)
Vala: I know darling I've stolen it before
Jackson: well... Just try to be uh....
Vala: My charming self?
Jackson: yes...just a little less talk a little more shut the hell up.
Nerous: What is this? This is exquisite. (holds up a piece of chicken) What is it?
It's a rare delicacy among our people.
Carter: You can already see the extent of the incursion with the naked eye.
Vala: My God, it's enormous! (Jackson instantly looks at her, she eventually glance up at him, knowing what he's thinking) Not everything I say is innuendo
Carter: If Nerous is correct, we should be able to punch through with our transport beam.
Vala: And if not?
Jackson: Then we're all dressed up with nowhere to go.
Mitchell: Yo. My name is Lt Colonel Cameron Mitchell.
Prior: I know who you are.
Jackson: Yeah he just told you his name
Prior: I also know you will do everything in your power to stop us.
Mitchell: Obvious.
Mitchell: If you do not disengage the Stargate within 30 of our (makes bunny sign with hands, Jackson has to do a double take) Earth minutes, we will shut down the gate for you. (look at Jackson) Go ahead.
Jackson: Uh... we know who and what you are and want no part of what you have to offer. If you attempt this on any other planet in this galaxy, we will find you and we will fight you.
Mitchell: That's it? (Jackson Nods) I just gave him 30 minutes. 29 minutes.
Earth minutes.
Yeah, I've always wanted to say that.
Well, now you have.
Mitchell: Sure hope they shut down that gate before we have to set this thing off.
Teal'c: That would appear to be highly unlikely, Colonel Mitchell
Vala: I know. It's naive, even for you.
Mitchell: Detonating the largest warhead ever built by man is not exactly the historical footnote that I had in mind.
Jackson: Not to mention the guilt you're gonna feel for vaporizing a perfectly good Stargate.
Mitchell: And that guy
Vala: oh, he's probably looking forward to it.
Mitchell: Oh yeah, we've been set up.
Vala: (Sarcastically) What a complete shock! (Jackson looks at her, she nods, making a zipping motion) won't say another word.
Jackson: Doesn't that look an awful lot like a?uh?
Mitchell: Yeah, it does.
Carter: In fact, I think that's just what it is.
Jackson: No, it can't be, cause I was gonna say, Stargate.
Mitchell: uh... Fine, fine. How do we stop it?
Vala: I have an idea. If we could put---
Jackson: The next idea that anybody comes up with, has to be outside the box!
Carter: Ok, the gate is composed of individual units. Uh...uh...There must be some kind of energy linkage between them. Like uh... like a chain.
Vala: Exactly! So we
Mitchell: So we need a big ole set of bolt cutters
Jackson: Oooh! Too far outside the box. Get closer to the box!
Landry: ...you will descend to a small dark room in the basement of Area 51 and you'll stay there till you come up with a defense against the Ori. That was our deal.
Nerous: what would possibly compel me to do that?
Landry: Hunger. (takes the smile right off Nerous... face)
