1.19 "Tin Man" Transcript
Upon landing on Planet PX3-989, the mysterious alien Harlan renders the SG-1 team unconscious. After waking and returning to the SGC, they find that their spirits and minds have been transferred into the bodies of androids. Their energy literally failing, the team must return to Harlan in a bid to reunite body and soul.
Guide | Transcript
[Offworld in a dark building. After coming up of a ladder, we have a view on a Stargate. When it shuts down, we see SG-1 that just came through the Gate.]
Ladies and Gentlemen, this is your Colonel speaking. Welcome to P3X niner-eight-niner, where it's a balmy…room temperature…Fan it out!
[They start investigating the chamber they are in. O'Neill is looking at a ball of light which is suspended from the ceiling above them.]
Whoa…Well the lights are on…but there's nobody home!
The technology seems advanced by comparison to what we've seen on most of the human-inhabited planets. Maybe they are more advanced than Earth.
They're much more.
Well, it feels older…somehow.
I know how it feels. This place have seen better days.
[SG-1 explores the compound.]
At least it doesn't appear to be a Goa'uld origin.
Teal'c, have you run into something like this?
I have not.
SG-1 arrives at what a control room, filled with banks of computers. Carter touches one of the computers, triggering an unusual sound.
Well, that sounds ominous! Fall back.
[They are making their way back to the Gate when they are suddenly zap by a light and they all fall down on the floor.]
END OF TEASER
[We see O'Neill waking up. The four members of SG-1 are all lying down in a room, each dressed in black clothes. O'Neill looks confused. Carter is lying down on the table next to him.]
Whoa…How did we get into these outfits?
I don't know.
[O'Neill gets up.]
Welcome to PX3-989.
[Carter also stands up as O'Neill is moving towards the rest of his team members. Everything is still dark.]
My transmitter's gone.
Daniel? Teal'c? You guys are okay?
[Carter stops at Daniel's table, while O'Neill goes over to help Teal'c.]
I am well.
Yeah, I'm fine.
[Daniel sits up.]
Better than fine actually, when you consider the fact that we are just…
[He doesn't have the time to finish his sentence when someone enters the room.]
I think that's a greeting.
Yes, it is.
Oh! Well then…uh…Com-traya. We are explorers from a place call Earth. I'm Daniel. Hello.
[He holds out his hand to the man.]
Oh! This is your custom, yes? Hello!
(To Daniel)You are the leader?
Oh, no. That will be…(He points to O'Neill)
Me! Colonel Jack O'Neill. Cumbaya.
Com-traya.(He laughs kindly at O'Neill.)
Whatever. Why did you attack us?
Attack? Oh, attack, yes, of course. It would seem that way from your perceptive. Yes, I did that.
It could not be helped! Oh, are you suffering any pain? Any after effects? Occasionally the heart must be restarted.
Oh, no. I think that we feel fine.
Ah, Com-traya! You are all such wonderful specimens!You in particular, female!
(Turns to Carter.)
[Carter moves towards Harlan.]
Easy Captain.Listen, we had some things…when we got here…some weapons.
Oh, those, hmm. Yes. Very dangerous.
Very. Can we have them back?
And our uniforms?
Sorry, but they are gone. This is better, yes?
[Harlan touches Carter's shoulder.]
[Carter moves away from Harlan.]
I am Harlan.I am the last survivor of Altar.
(He holds out his hand to Daniel.)
Excuse me? The last survivor? You're the only one of this planet?
Yes. And your weapons are this way.
[SG-1 follow Harlan through the complex.]
We are in section 3. There has been trouble here lately.
What kind of trouble?
Mechanical breakdowns. Very difficult to maintain this complex all alone.
Listen, Harlan, is there an outside of this place?
Outside is above, we are under.
Oh yes, on the surface we cannot survive. Hmm, radiation. Very, very bad. Ah! This way to section 4!
Eh, what happened to your civilisation? Surely, you started on the surface and then move under.
Oh, yes, long ago!
We are curious to learn about others worlds, we would love to hear about what happened on the surface.
All in time.
We've got all the time in the world!
[Harlan chuckles in response to this.]
Yes, you do. You understand? Com-traya!
Now, what is that "Com-traya!", is that like "Aloha"?
Harlan, how long have you been on your own?
Eh, now, let me see, Wallas was the last one to go. I miss him. But, you all remind me a little of Wallas. Eh, except for you, of course, you are a female.Hubald, he was the creator of all this, but he died very early…too early…Many secrets with him, so long ago.
(Harlan turns from Carter to Teal'c.)
And you are…whatever you are.
(Teal'c and O'Neill glance at each other.)
How long, exactly?
Eh, exactly? Ninety-nine million, two hundred and seven thousand of your hours.
Well, that's 11,000 years.
How did you know that?
(To O'Neill)Wait, how did you know that?
See. Everything is better. Even your minds. You are all much, much better!
Better than what?
You do not feel it? You are not stronger? Smarter?
Jack, I think he's right. I feel great.
Of course you do. Because I have given you a great gift. I have made you all…better!
Oh, I have not hurt you! I have only made you…better.
All right, listen, listen closely, I'm going to ask you one more time, very simply, better…how?!
[Harlan doesn't answer.]
We're gone! We're out of here!
[SG-1 head back towareds the Stargate. Harlan looks worried. The team arrives at the Gate and they have their weapons back.]
Carter, dial us home!
Wait! You—you—you cannot leave! I—I—I cannot leave either! It is not safe!
What is not safe? Tell us!
All in time, there is so much you must know first.
[The Gate kawooshes and Carter sends the GDO signal.]
You will be back! You will! You cannot leave me here.. all…alone…[He stands staring, worried as the Gate shuts down.)Oh, dear!
[All the members of SG-1 are present, hovering as Dr. Fraiser examines O'Neill.]
Colonel, how do you feel?
Never felt better in my life! That gets me a little worried actually.
Yeah, well, this has got me a little worried.Listen.
(Fraiser gives O'Neill her stethoscope.)
[O'Neill listens to his heart.]
I don't hear anything. What, this is better? I'm dead?!
Well, Colonel, to make sense of this I going to have to do a blood sample.
[Fraiser takes a blood sample from O'Neill. A milky white liquid is drawn into the syringe.]
My God, what the hell is that? Get that out of me!
Look, eh, I'm going to need x-rays on all of them. Stat!
[In the background, Teal'c begins to rub his abdomen.]
What did he do to us?
I don't know. Just let's everybody stay calm.
[Teal'c lifts his shirt and he realises that his larval Goa'uld is no longer there.]
I no longer possess a Goa'uld.
[At this, O'Neill grabs a knife, braces his arm against the table, then begins to cut open his arm from his wrist to almost his elbow.]
Colonel! What the hell are you doing?
[Then O'Neill peels back his skin to reveal a mechanical interior of circuits and pistons.]
[As Carter helps O'Neill, Fraiser moves away to sound the alarm.]
Alert, Security to the Infirmary!
Whoa! Security? Doctor Frasier, it is us.
Just, don't come any closer.
[The secutiry team arrives in the infirmary.]
Stand down airmen, just a little misunderstanding. That's an order.
Belay that order!
[General Hammond enters the Infirmary.]
General, that is not Colonel O'Neill.
Oh, for crying out loud, General, it's me!
Would you call that human blood?
I have reasons to believe that they are all impostors. He, or whatever he is, has no detectable heartbeat.
Take them to the holding room. Put a guard outside.
General Hammond.I don't know what that sonovabitch on 989 did, but I swear to God…
(O'Neill gets up and walks over to face Hammond.)
Follow the instructions.
(Interrupting)Your wife died of cancer four years ago!
And you will not be hurt!
Your granddaughters' names are Tessa and Kayla!
Any resistance by any of you will be met with deadly force! Is that understood?
[O'Neill leads the way out of the Infirmary, followed by the rest of his team and the security team.]
[Gen. Hammond and Dr. Fraiser are watching SG-1 via a monitor.]
Looks and sounds like our people. They certainly believe they are SG-1.
It may be another Goa'uld trick.
I don't know what to believe. He was right about the names of my grandchildren. How else would he have known, if he isn't Jack O'Neill?
Sir, given our history with the Goa'uld, I believe keeping them here would be extremely dangerous.
INT—SGC HOLDING ROOM
[Daniel is staring in fascination at his right hand.]
It's incredible, it looks like mine, it feels like mine, it is mine, I mean I don't feel any different. If anything, I feel better!
Well, that's what Harlan said.
Why didn't he just tell us?
Probably afraid we'd damage him.
Perceptive little runt.
You know, Colonel, you can't blame General Hammond for confining us.
Hey, I know who I am!
So do I! In every respect I feel like Carter. But the evidence. Harlan must have transferred our consciousness into these bodies!"
[Teal'c paces the room, holding his abdomen.]
Bodies? Did you see the inside of this arm? We're machines, Carter.
[Daniel is watching Teal'c pace.]
Teal'c? Are you okay?
Well…for starters you've lost your…infant Goa'uld.
I still feel its presence.
Really? That must be like continuing to feel a limb after it's been lost.
Oh, for crying out loud! Daniel! I'm glad you're so fascinated by all this, but it's time for a little reality check. Okay? We are being help prisoner by our own people.
Well, they can't keep us in here forever…I mean….
Why not? What do you think is going to happen? You really think military intelligence is going to let us continue as SG-1…like this?
We still have our rights, Jack.
What rights are you talking about?
Colonel, no matter what he's done to us, were still.
(Interrupting)Human? Is that what you were going to say?
Harlan said we'd be back. Now we know why.
[Hammond enters the holding room.]
Colonel O'Neill? Whoever you are. I have decided to send SG-5 back to P3X-989. See if they can shed some light on this.
That's a mistake.
Because old Harlan will do to them what he did to us.
The indigenous person we encountered on the other side, Sir.
We do believe that he transferred out conciseness into these artificial bodies.
Why would anyone do that?
Well he thought he was doing us a favour. He thinks this is better. And I never even really thought of it at the time, but he must be artificial too.
[Daniel lowers his head, looking exhausted.]
That must explain how he got to be 11,000 years old.
General?I think that it's imperative that we go back.
(O'Neill is battling exhaustion too, looking as if he might pass out.)
[Each of the team members collapses. Hammond rushes forward to help them.]
Get Dr. Fraiser!
[Carter and Teal'c hold their throats as if they are having difficulty breathing while Daniel is holding his head.]
General, we've got to go back.
(O'Neill grabs Hammond's shoulder in desperation.]
INT—SGC GATE ROOM
[O'Neill and the other members of SG-1 are being helped towards the Stargate.]HAMMOND
Will send another team through within the hour!O'NEILL
Negative. Don't risk anymore.HAMMOND
Get this Gate open!CHEVRON GUY
INT—HARLAN'S COMPOUND: THE STARGATE
[The four members of SG-1 tumble out of the wormhole and lie before the Gate in a state of collapse. They begin to stir, finally sitting up.]TEAL'C
My strength returns.CARTER
We ran out of energy.DANIEL
Well, if these bodies are machines, they need a power source. It's here.
[We hear Harlan's approach.]HARLAN
Ah! Com-traya! Here is where you belong now. Here is the only place you can be.
(He is chuckling]
[O'Neill is seething with anger. Suddenly he jumps up, grabs Harlan by his collar and throws him against the Gate.]O'NEILL
You nearly waited too long. I was worried. Feel better?O'NEILL
Better. What the hell did you do to us?HARLAN
You are angry.O'NEILL
Yes. Give me one good reason why I shouldn't break you in half.CARTER
Colonel, he's the only one who can put our consciousness back into our real bodies.HARLAN
Oh! No, no, no, I cannot do that. In time you will see, I have transferred your consciousness into the syntheticO'NEILL
(Still hold Harlan by his collar, O'Neill yells at him)Well transfer us back! Now!
No, I cannot, it is permanent.O'NEILL
I do not want to hear that!
HARLANYou are damaging me.
[Harlan is choking. O'Neill holds him for a few more seconds, then finally lets him go.]HARLAN
I am sorry, but there is no way to do what you ask. Your bodies are all gone; it is all part of the process. This is what you are now. You will see; it is better.
[SG-1 appears defeated by this news.]
INT—CORRIDOR IN HARLAN'S COMPOUND
[The team is following Harlan through the compound.]HARLAN
This way. Around the corner, just a few more steps and home again!
[They enter the laboratory in which they earlier regained consciousness.]HARLAN
You should rest now. Your internal systems are not yet fully recharged, and they were aloud to drain far to low.
[Looking exhausted, Carter, Daniel and Teal'c sit while O'Neill continues to seethe.]COMPUTER
Attention, coolant leak in secondary coils in section 2, immediate attention is required.HARLAN
Section 2, you see now why I needed you? This place is more then one man can maintain! Oh, so much to do. You will see, you will all feel much better soon.Oh, this will not take long at all.
(Harlan leaves the laboratory.)
[O'Neill continues to pace.]DANIEL
Jack, he said we should rest. We don't want to run out of energy again.
[O'Neill ignores him.]CARTER
He's right about this place, half of the stuff of this complex isn't working. The rest is marginal. I mean, look around. He's been jerry-rigging thing's for centuries. He was desperate.O'NEILL
I say let this place fall down.TEAL'C
To condemn Harlan would be to condemn ourselves.O'NEILL
Your point being?TEAL'C
What is done is done.O'NEILL
Oh please. Has it occurred to anyone that all we are now is robots?
[O'Neill is upset. Everybody sits in silence his outburst after that. O'Neill suddenly walks around and opens the laboratory doors.]DANIEL
Where are you going?O'NEILL
I'm going to find Harlan.DANIEL
Don't worry, it's just to talk. Robot to robot.
[Daniel shakes his head as the doors are closing. Suddenly, a smile appears on his face.]CARTER
Oh it's nothing. Umm, this notion of living a 11,000 years entered my mind for a moment and I couldn't…it's a lot to take in.CARTER
Apparently we've got time to adjust. We really do have all the same sensations and perceptions that we did in our human form.DANIEL
Well, if you think about it, the human body is just a machine. It's a vessel for our consciousness, I mean, it's just an organic one. I mean, it performs work, requires fuel.
[Carter shakes her head in disagreement.]CARTER
It's not the same, Daniel.DANIEL
No it isn't, but, maybe in away Harlan was right, maybe in away this is better. I mean where still us, were still…unique. Every thought, every feeling.CARTER
Have you felt hungry, or thirsty since this happened?DANIEL
[Without warning, Teal'c suddenly stands up and walks to the door.]DANIEL
Teal'c?. You still okay?
[Teal'c doesn't answer and leaves the laboratory. Daniel and Carter follow him out but are unable to find him.]DANIEL
Where did he go?CARTER
Probably wants to be alone. I don't blame him.That way.
(Carter points out the hall in front of them.)
[Cut to Teal'c resting against a wall, holding his abdomen, struggling to breathe. He begins to shake violently. Cut to Harlan attempting a repair. O'Neill is with him.]HARLAN
I do not understand this obsession of yours.O'NEILL
It's not an obsession. I just wanna know what you did with our bodies!HARLAN
But you have no further use for them.
[Daniel and Carter arrive.]HARLAN
Oh good, you are exploring, yes good, good there is much to see, much to learn from the station. And you are feeling better. Yes?CARTER
No. Colonel, have you seen Teal'c?O'NEILL
I left him with you.HARLAN
Perhaps he is best left alone. He is different. Yes?O'NEILL
Yes. Look Harlan, I wanna know why you did this, why you did all of this.
[Harlan is focused on the repair he is making to the pipe.]HARLAN
Our race was facing destruction. The biosphere of this planet could no longer support us. This project was undertaken to allow some of our people to continue to live, even if our planet could not. Our former bodies would never survive this.CARTER
How many were there, originally?HARLAN
What happened to them?HARLAN
Oh, there were problems with the transfer process. Some were lost. Secara, Bareeth, Tira, very, very sad. We could not repair Hubald, creator of all this! His secrets were lost. But many survived…for awhile.CARTER
Where are they?HARLAN
Some left through the ring we discovered. The ring, which you went through. They carried along small, more portable sources with them. I expected them to come home…I waited. This is…home, after all. But they…didn't. And the rest did not except the gift, they…ended their existence.DANIEL
They walked above the surface, far from here, outside of the range of the power source. Wallas, he was the last one, he gave his life for the station. An accident. And I have been alone since Wallas. But you are here now, and everything is better now. Will you hold this for me?
[Daniel goes to help Harlan with the repair.]HARLAN
Com-traya! Very helpful! We work together well. There. See? We accomplish things.So we must remain near the power source in case it breaks down again. Without the continuous stream of energy from the emitter, these bodies could not function for more than a few hours. And that is why I knew you would come back.
(Harlan puts his tools back in his toolbox and starts to walk away.)
Harlan, we want to go home.HARLAN
No, no, you must stay, you are friends. New friends.O'NEILL
Friends? I don't even like you. Chances are I will never like you.CARTER
Colonel. If we are ever going to get home, we need him.HARLAN
You still do not appreciate the gift? Immortality, 11,000 going on infinity. I always say.Oh no!
(An alarm sounds.)
Attention. Coolant leak.HARLAN
Very bad, very bad.CARTER
What is it?HARLAN
The power source, for us! I spent too much time away from the station to create you. Hurry, there's not much time, we must repair it or else we will all…die.
INT—HARLAN'S COMPOUND CONTROL ROOM
[O'Neill, Daniel and Carter run into the control room with Harlan.]HARLAN
I think the thermos compensator has malfunctioned again. Ah-ha, tube 18 is lost. It draw heat in from the planetary core, must be vented. The surface wind drives irradiated acid rain into the ventilation system. It rusts the valves closed.CARTER
So what's keeping us going?HARLAN
Reserve power, like when you went back to your world. "Not much time!"DANIEL
Has this ever happened before?HARLAN
Not since Wallas was still alive. That is the reason I created you. We must work together.
[O'Neill starts to randomly push some bottoms. Harlan reacts impatiently.]HARLAN
[Daniel and Carter look to O'Neill for approval.]O'NEILL
All right, I'll help. Where's Teal'c? We could use him.HARLAN
It does not matter, he is…different.CARTER
Okay, so what do we do?HARLAN
I had to shut down most of the vents. We have to open more and reroute the ventilation.There and there. I will stay here to operate the computer.
(He shows them a map of the building and points out to them the places where they should go to open the vents.)
How do we find these vents, how do we open them?HARLAN
The automatic controls no longer work and the vent are rusted closed. You will have to open up the vent shafts, and do it manually. Search your minds. It is all there. I made sure of it. You have all the answers you need, now go! Go! Go!
[Daniel and Carter leave, but O'Neill stays with Harlan who shoos him away.]HARLAN
Phhtt, phhtt, phhtt!
[O'Neill slowly departs.]HARLAN
Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear.
[Cut to Daniel and Carter walking down the hallway.]DANIEL
[Cut to Harlan in the control room.]COMPUTER
Warning, pressure rising to critical levels. Pressure levels at four hubald.
[Cut to O'Neill standing on a footbridge looking down at the lower level. He jumps down and walks away looking impressed with his prowess. Cut to Harlan looking extremely worried.]COMPUTER
Pressure rising to six hubald units. Warning!
[Cut to Daniel and Carter arriving at the vent.]DANIEL
There it is.Did you see that?
(Daniel lifts the vent cover without effort, first surprising then impressing them.)
Oh.Harlan was right, it's rusted shut, I can feel it.
(Daniel reaches into the vent.)
[Cut to O'Neill reaching another vent. Cut to Daniel attempting to open the valve.]DANIEL
There, I've got it.
[Cut to Harlan. His computer screen shows that the pressure is increasing.]COMPUTER
Warning! Pressure rising to 8 hubald units.
[Cut to Daniel and Carter, replacing the vent cover. The compound begins to shake. Cut to O'Neill trying to free his vent. Cut to the control room.]
COMPUTERPressure rising to 10 hubald units!
[Harlan makes an adjustment.]COMPUTER
Override venting steam now.
[Cut to O'Neill at the vent.]O'NEILL
Not yet, Harlan. Not yet!
[Steam erupts from the vent, pushing O'Neill back. He falls to the ground. Teal'c joins him.]O'NEILL
Teal'c! Thank God! Where have you been?
[O'Neill attempts to rise but Teal'c pushes him to the ground again.]O'NEILL
[Teal'c picks up O'Neill and slams him against the wall. Cut to Harlan.]COMPUTER
12 hubald units!
[Cut to Daniel and Carter. Carter is opening another vent. Cut to Teal'c, who is attempting to strangle O'Neill.]O'NEILL
Teal'c! God, what are you doing?!
[Cut to Harlan trying to open the vents from the computer system.]COMPUTER
Catastrophic coolant failure is imminent.
[Cut to Teal'c throwing O'Neill to the floor near some pipes. As O'Neill gets up, Teal'c is coming for him.]O'NEILL
Come on! Teal'c, come on! Teal'c!
[O'Neill swings one of the pipes at Teal'c as hard as he can. The pipe bends, shocking O'Neill. Teal'c throws O'Neill down again, O'Neill crying out in pain.]O'NEILL
[Teal'c pushes O'Neill into some pipes, steam erupting from them; cut to the control room where the pressure is shown to be descreasing.]COMPUTER
You have succeeded in venting sufficient pressure. Com-traya.
[Harlan collapses onto his chair. Cut to Daniel and Carter.]DANIEL
We did it.
[Cut to O'Neill, sitting on the floor. Teal'c grabs him again, focring his face into the venting steam. Cut to Daniel and Carter who hear O'Neill screaming and rush to his assistance. Cut to Teal'c holding O'Neill's face in the venting steam. O'Neill passes out. Teal'c grabs a hammer and is poised to hit O'Neill with it as Daniel and Carter arrive.]CARTER
[Teal'c looks at them without recognition, raising the hammer to strike O'Neill. A ray of light hits his abdoment and he disappears. Harlan is standing behind where Teal'c was, a laser gun in his hand.]CARTER
[Carter runs to help O'Neill, who sits, in pain from a terrible wound on his cheek baring metal and circuits beneath the synthetic skin which was burned away.]O'NEILL
I'm all right.CARTER
I'm sorry, but you're not.HARLAN
It is only damage, I can repair it.
[As O'Neill touches his wound, he gets an electrical chock.]HARLAN
All will be well, you will see. And your friend too.CARTER
You killed him!HARLAN
He was malfunctioning.DANIEL
How will all be well with him if he is dead?
[Harlan absently points his weapon at Daniel, who pushes it away.]HARLAN
You, you will see. Now the station is repaired, go back to your quarters and wait. You-you will see.
[Harlan leaves them.]O'NEILL
Keep an eye on him!
[Daniel follows Harlan, Carter joining him.]
INT—HARLAN'S COMPOUND: LABORATORY
[In pursuit of Harlan,Daniel and Carter arrive at a door then try to gain entry.]DANIEL
Harlan, open up!CARTER
[Daniel and Carter force the door and find Harlan in a laboratory beside what appears to be an incubator.]HARLAN
No, no, no! Go away!DANIEL
Harlan, what the hell are you doing?
[Daniel and Carter see Teal'c inside the incubator.]HARLAN
All will be well. Please, I…CARTER
(Interrupting.)He's making a new synthetic Teal'c.
Please go back you your quarters, and I will bring him to you when…CARTER
How is this possible?HARLAN
Ah—yes, um, there were two minds before, the creature he carried within. Two beings. The two minds could not coexist, and your friend malfunctioned. I did not know he was different. I will not make that mistake this time.CARTER
Answer my question this time. How can you make a new synthetic Teal'c, without the original?
[O'Neill walks into the laboratory.]O'NEILL
Captain Carter. Stand aside. Harlan, turn off that machine.HARLAN
The process is incomplete, I can…O'NEILL
Turn it off!
Now answer the Captain's question.HARLAN
Please if you destroy me, you will destroy the last survivor of an entire people, and yourselves too.O'NEILL
I'm going to ask this question once. Do our bodies, our real bodies, exist somewhere?HARLAN
Then I want you to put us back. Now.HARLAN
I could not do that, even if I wanted to.CARTER
Why? If you can transfer our conciseness into these bodies, surely you can reverse the process?HARLAN
No, it is impossible.O'NEILL
I will show you.
[Harlan leads them into another laboratory, similar to the once in which SG-1 awoke.]O'NEILL
[We now see the real SG-1 team members, lying down on tables, tape over their mouths. O'Neill Robot walks to O'Neill, who is awake, then kneels next to him. All the other members of SG-1 seem to be awake too.]HARLAN
I meant no harm. I will return them through the ring as soon as I am certain you had accepted your transference.ROBOT CARTER
Except it's not really a transference, is it? From one to the other. We're copies.HARLAN
Yes, as good as the original. Better even.
[Robot O'Neill looks extremely sad.]HARLAN
If you had not been so insistent you would have never seen each other. Once I knew the transference was successful. I had intended to send your organic selves, back to your world, uh, their world. They would never have known of your existence. And in time hope that you would have excepted yours.ROBOT O'NEILL
We…can never go back.HARLAN
No, you belong here. You are welcome here.
[Robot Carter walks over to Teal'c and removes the tape from his mouth.]ROBOT CARTER
Captain Carter.ROBOT CARTER
Colonel, he's all right.ROBOT O'NEILL
(Whispering.)That's great, Captain.
[Robot O'Neill gets up and walks away. Robot Daniel walks over to O'Neill and take the tape off his mouth while Harlan frees each member of SG-1.]O'NEILL
Ah, sort of.
[Robot Daniel walks over to Daniel. O'Neill and Teal'c sit up and watch.]ROBOT DANIEL
Here, let me get that.
[Robot Daniel sits at Daniel's side then very gently removes the tape from his mouth.]O'NEILL
HARLAN, where have you been?HARLAN
I can see that. Doing what?HARLAN
Oh, ah, creating your synthetic others. Saving the planet. Busy, busy.
[Robot Carter is sitting next to Carter, who sits up and begins to examine her robot. It's clear they are fascinated.]O'NEILL
Yes. I am sorry for restraining you for so long, I am afraid my plan has failed rather miserably. But as I promised, you are free to go.CARTER
This is impossible.ROBOT CARTER
It's true. At first we did not even know we had been changed.CARTER
Recreating the neuralstructure on…ROBOT CARTER
I know! Defies the uncertainty principle. We are identical, right down to the mole on our…CARTER
Ehhh! Shut up.TEAL'C
Was not a copy made of me?HARLAN
Oh yes, yes. Um, but um, I had to disintegrate you.TEAL'C
[He seems offended by this.]CARTER
You get it, you just don't like it.
[O'Neill walks out.]DANIEL
[Everyone is speaking at the same time.]
INT—HARLAN'S COMPOUND: LABORATORY
[Robot O'Neill is staring at the incomplete Teal'c synthetic when O'Neill walks in behind him.]O'NEILL
Listen, I'm not too happy about this either, you know.ROBOT O'NEILL
You think you know how I feel?O'NEILL
Well, yeah. Were basically the same guy, aren't we?ROBOT O'NEILL
Ah, have a look.
[Robot O'Neill angrily shows off his ugly wound.]O'NEILL
Ouch. Sorry.ROBOT O'NEILL
So, um, what the hell happened here?ROBOT O'NEILL
Somebody stole my life. That's what happened.O'NEILL
You talking about my life?ROBOT O'NEILL
Hey, I've got every right to it that you do. I was kind of hoping I could figure out away to undo all this, get myself back into my body, where I belong.O'NEILL
Well it's occupied, thank you.ROBOT O'NEILL
I noticed that. What does that make me? What do you want?O'NEILL
Well they're all debating the meaning of life out there. Both Daniels think this is all fascinating. The Carters are arguing already. Teal'c feels left out. You and I have go a few things to talk about.ROBOT O'NEILL
I'm not going to give you a hard time about who gets to go back, if that's what you mean.O'NEILL
Thank you.ROBOT O'NEILL
It has nothing to do with generosity, believe me. I can't go back. If I could it might be a different story.O'NEILL
Yeah well…there is, um, a little issue of security. You know everything I know about Earth. Codes, defences.ROBOT O'NEILL
We'll bury the Gate, don't worry. And don't even think about trying to send a bomb to make sure.O'NEILL
I wasn't.ROBOT O'NEILL
Yes, you were. I know you.O'NEILL
All right, all right, you have my word, Colonel.ROBOT O'NEILL
Call me Jack.HARLAN
[He calls for O'Neill off-camera.]O'NEILL/ROBOT O'NEILL

[The two look at one another.]ROBOT O'NEILL
I'll handle this.
[Robot O'Neill walks away.]

Ah, there you are, I was worried about you. Where is the other one?ROBOT O'NEILL
He is…getting ready to go home.HARLAN
Yes, all for the best. I hope in time you will forgive me.ROBOT O'NEILL
You were just trying to survive.HARLAN
Yes, and we will! All will be well, you will see!ROBOT O'NEILL
Harlan, people are not supposed to live forever.HARLAN
Maybe not, but if you try just a few hundred years, perhaps you might change your mind. Yes?
[A cheerful Harlan leaves Robot O'Neill alone in his sadness.]
INT—HARLAN'S COMPOUND: THE STARGATE
[SG-1 and robot SG-1 gather with Harlan at the Stargate.]O'NEILL
So don't forget to bury the Gate when where gone.ROBOT O'NEILL
Like that's something I would forget.O'NEILL
[Both O'Neills shake hands.]O'NEILL
See ya. And uh, you should have that looked at, it's…whoa.
(O'Neill points to the wound on Robot O'Neill's face]ROBOT O'NEILL
Have a good life.O'NEILL
