TEASER

EXT—P3R-636 STARGATE

[SG-1 are on a cliff overlooking what appears to be Jaffa sending Naquadah through a Stargate.]

O’NEILL
What’s in the fancy box?
TEAL’C
It is naquadah. Raw naquadah is highly valued among the Goa’uld.
CARTER
SG-3 brought back a small amount of the element back last year. We could really use some, sir.
O’NEILL
Well, maybe there is more.

EXT—FOREST

[SG-1 come to a cliff edge overlooking a Goa’uld ship and a large number of Jaffa.]

O’NEILL
Whoa.

[A procession of Jaffa come down a path near the cliff.]

DANIEL
Look.

[A woman walks away from the procession and Daniel follows.]

O’NEILL
I wish he’d stop doing that.

[SG-1 follows the woman to the edge of a cliff.]

O’NEILL
She’s going to jump.

[Daniel runs towards the woman and grabs her.]

O’NEILL
Daniel!
SHYLA
Ahh!

[Two Jaffa hear the screams and come running.]

DANIEL
No, wait. Please.
JAFFA 1
Stay away from the princess.

[O'Neill and Carter draw their weapons on the Jaffa :.]

DANIEL
It’s okay.

[Two more Jaffa come from behind.]

CARTER
Colonel?
SHYLA
Tell them to lower their weapons. They will kill him.

[O'Neill puts down his weapon.]

END OF TEASER

OPENING CREDITS

INT—PALACE THRONE ROOM

[A group of Jaffa lead SG-1 in front of Shyla and PYRUS.]

O’NEILL
What were you thinking?
DANIEL
I thought she’d be grateful.
O’NEILL
She was trying to kill herself!
JAFFA
On your knees.
O’NEILL
No, actually I've got this cartilage problem, little ACL thing…

[The Jaffa hits him with his staff weapon.]

O’NEILL
Ah, Yeah, that helps.
SHYLA
My Father, Pyrus the God slayer and ruler of this planet wishes to know who you are.
DANIEL
We’re explorers. Peaceful explorers.
PYRUS
You attacked my daughter
DANIEL
No. Tell him.

[Pyrus comes down from his throne and stands in front of SG-1.]

PYRUS
Only one of you is Jaffa.

[Pyrus grabs Carter by the head.]

PYRUS
Who sent you? Where are you from?
O’NEILL
We’re from a planet called Earth.
PYRUS
What Goa’uld rules there?
O’NEILL
None
PYRUS
Liar. Thieves. You will tell me the truth or you will die. Put them in the mines.
SHYLA
Father!

[The group of Jaffa grab SG-1 and start to haul them out of the room.]

DANIEL
No wait! We’re not thieves. Wait! Please!

INT—MINE

[SG-1 is using pick axes to break apart rocks.]

CARTER
Colonel. He isn’t a Goa’uld. I don’t think these are real Jaffa either.
O’NEILL
How do you know?
CARTER
First clue was his voice.
O’NEILL
Yeah, I noticed that too.
CARTER
Sir, I can’t really explain it but when he grabbed me I just knew. I felt it. Or, to be more accurate, I didn’t feel it. Sir, I think it has something to do with the Goa’uld that invaded me. Lately, I…I get this weird feeling when I'm near Teal'c.
O’NEILL
Hey, who doesn't?
CARTER
No, I can sense the presence of a Goa’uld now. I didn’t get that feeling when he grabbed me.
TEAL’C
I agree with Captain Carter. The ruler here is not a Goa’uld.
O’NEILL
Alright, Let’s assume you both are right. How does that help us?
CARTER
I’m not sure
DANIEL
Look, I’m really sorry you guys. This is totally my fault.

[A Jaffa walks up to SG-1.]

JAFFA
You will meet your quota for the day or you will not eat.
O’NEILL
You know, I've seen an awful lot of union violations around here. I should probably speak to your supervisor.

[The Jaffa hits O’Neill.]

JAFFA
You will work.
O’NEILL
Hi ho, hi ho, back to work.

INT—MINE

[SG-1 is still picking apart rocks but looks a little more worn down.]

DANIEL
I can’t move anymore.

[A horn sounds and prisoners start to walk through in a line.]

JAFFA
Put down your tools.

[The Jaffa starts to unshackle SG-1.]

JAFFA
How does your leg feel now?
O’NEILL
Oh, much better thanks.

[O'Neill hits the Jaffa with his tool and Teal'c throws his ax at another guard. O'Neill picks up a discarded Staff weapon and fires.]

O’NEILL
Let’s go. Let’s go.
TEAL’C
This way.
O’NEILL
Let’s go Daniel!
DANIEL
I’m coming!

[A troop of Jaffa come in and start to fire after SG-1. One of the staff weapon blasts hits the rocks above Daniel’s head, sending them cascading on him. O'Neill, Carter and Teal'c turn back to help unbury Daniel.]

O’NEILL
Daniel! God…
CARTER
He’s alive!
O’NEILL
Carter, Teal’c. Take off.
CARTER
Sir?
O’NEILL
Go!

[As Carter and Teal'c make their way out, another group of Jaffa stops in front of them, sealing off the exit.]

INT—PALACE

[Pyrus and Shyla are standing in the throne room.]

PYRUS
Foolish child. They must have been sent by some distant evil God. Then they are here to raid our mine. And we can spare none of our naquadah, it grows more scares by the day.
SHYLA
I know. I will not put our world in jeopardy. When you are gone I will have to make these kinds of choices all the time. Please, believe in me.

[Pyrus turns and leaves. Shyla pushes a button on the throne to reveal a sarcophagus, with Daniel inside.]

SHYLA
Do you feel better?
DANIEL
What’s going on?
SHYLA
You tried to escape. You were badly wounded.
DANIEL
My friends?
SHYLA
They were recaptured. By what name are you called?
DANIEL
Daniel Jackson.
SHYLA
May I help you out Daniel Jackson?

[Shyla offers her hand to help Daniel out of the Sarcophagus.]

DANIEL
Thank you. Why am I wearing this?
SHYLA
I took the liberty of providing you with royal robes. You may call me Shyla. In return for saving your life, please do not try to escape again. I have taken personal responsibility for you.
DANIEL
Okay.
SHYLA
It would also be rude of you to try and hurt me in any way.
DANIEL
You do realize it’s also kind of rude to kidnap people and chain them up in a mine.
SHYLA
Please forgive me for not telling my father the truth about what happened by the cliff. I…he would not understand.
DANIEL
Okay. So, you’re not Goa’ulds but you’re running a naquadah mine and you’ve got yourselves a Goa’uld sarcophagus.
SHYLA
You know of the sarcophagus?
DANIEL
Yeah, I've…I've used one before. Couple of times too many if you ask me.
SHYLA
Really?

[Daniel points to his eyes.]

DANIEL
My umm..uhh
SHYLA
Oh, you want your glass circles. I’m afraid they were broken.

[Shyla hands Daniel the broken glasses. He puts them on.]

SHYLA
I just know I’ve done the right thing. Come! I must show you something

[Shyla takes Daniel by the hand and drags him out.]

INT—MINE

[Carter, Teal'c and O'Neill are still breaking apart rocks, looking quite haggard.]

CARTER
He needed medical attention.
O’NEILL
I know.
CARTER
It wasn’t your fault sir. We had to take the opportunity when we did.
O’NEILL
I know that too.

[A young boy offers O'Neill a cup of muddy water.]

O’NEILL
I've had worse.

EXT—FOREST

[Shyla and Daniel are walking along a tree-lined path.]

SHYLA
Isn’t this splendid?
DANIEL
Why are we here?
SHYLA
I know you must've seen much in your travels, but…surely you've never seen anything quite so beautiful. We call them trees.
DANIEL
Ah! Um, so do we.
SHYLA
So you’ve seen them before, on other worlds?
DANIEL
Yeah, I have
SHYLA
I’m a fool aren’t I? I mean surely you’ve seen more incredible things then I can imagine. Please, tell me about them.
DANIEL
Look, I would really like to tell you everything you want to know but…but my friends.
SHYLA
My father still believes you and your friends have a nefarious purpose here.
DANIEL
But you don’t.
SHYLA
We will convince him that you are decent honest people who will bring no harm to our kingdom.
DANIEL
I..uh..um, don’t suppose we could go talk to your father now?
SHYLA
He is not well now.
DANIEL
I don't…I don't want to spoil this little rapport we seem to have going here….
SHYLA
That sounds almost romantic.
DANIEL
Oh boy, okay, um, here's the thing. I am very grateful to you that you saved my life and that you want to help me free my friends, but I'm sensing that you did it because your, ah…
SHYLA
Because you're my destiny.
DANIEL
Whuahh….What?
SHYLA
Before she died, my mother-in-law used to come out here and take long walks at night. You can see every star in the sky through the treetops.
DANIEL
No, see, about the destiny thing?
SHYLA
She used to tell me how a great man would come from beyond the sun, just for me.
DANIEL
Oh boy.
SHYLA
I had come to believe my mother was wrong. That my true love would never come. I stood on that cliff and I wished one last time. At exactly the right moment you were there to save me, Daniel Jackson. You cannot deny that is fate.

INT—MINE

[Carter, Teal'c and O'Neill are still hard at work breaking apart rocks. Daniel walks in looking royal with a Jaffa escort.]

DANIEL
Hi guys.
CARTER
Daniel!
O’NEILL
Well. It's surprisingly difficult to kill you, isn't it?
TEAL’C
We are pleased to see you Daniel Jackson.
CARTER
What happened?
DANIEL
Uh. Sam was right. Pyrus isn’t a Goa’uld.
O’NEILL
What's with the dress?
DANIEL
Oh! Ah, they're royal robes. Ah, long story short, they have a sarcophagus. Um, the princess put me in it and saved my life because she has a, ah, a crush on me.
CARTER
A crush?
DANIEL
Yeah. Actually, she thinks I'm her destiny, the whole saving her life thing. I guess she was grateful after all.
O’NEILL
Well, good job. Now how about getting the goons to unlock us and get us the heck out of here?
DANIEL
Uh yeah, not yet.
O’NEILL
I’m sorry?
DANIEL
Well it’s…uh…it’s kind of a sensitive situation. Pyrus hasn’t exactly agreed to let you go yet. But I’m working on it. I’m trying to gain his trust. Yeah, I know. This is really…
O’NEILL
Weird?
DANIEL
Look, I just wanted to let you guys know I was okay. And I will talk to Pyrus tonight at dinner.
CARTER
You get dinner?
DANIEL
Yeah, um, some feast in my honor. Or something.
O’NEILL
Feast? There is a feast?
DANIEL
Just trust me. Okay. I just, I need more time.

[Daniel turns and leaves with his escort.]

O’NEILL
Glad you’re okay!

INT—PALACE DINNING ROOM

[Daniel is seated by himself with food being brought to him.]

DANIEL
Umm, just me?

[Pyrus and Shyla walk in. Daniel stands up.]

DANIEL
Hello, I’m Daniel Jackson.
PYRUS
Hmm.
SHYLA
My father is pleased that you are so honored to dine in the presence of his greatness.
DANIEL
Exactly.
SHYLA
If you are lucky he will tell you the story of how he became the God slayer.
PYRUS
I killed Goa’uld who ruled here.
DANIEL
And how long ago was that.
PYRUS
700 years.
DANIEL
700 years? But you’re a….of course the sarcophagus. But I had no idea it could sustain human life so long. Does that mean that you are…
SHYLA
No, I’m very young by comparison. I have not needed it to extend my life.
DANIEL
So the people continue to worship your father because he’s lived so long.
SHYLA
They worship him because he liberated them from the evil God.
DANIEL
Uh, then why does he keep them working in the mines.
SHYLA
So the other distant evil Gods won’t come.
DANIEL
So this, this is a masquerade. You’re sending Naquadah through the Stargate because that’s what the Goa’uld used to do. Well no wonder you’re so paranoid about strangers. You’re afraid of being found out.

[Pyrus gets up, not pleased with the situation. Shyla follows after him.]

PYRUS
I must sleep.
DANIEL
Wait, uh…about my friends?
PYRUS
Kill them.
DANIEL
What? No.
SHYLA
Father, you said their punishment for trying to escape would be to work in the mines, without rest for as long as they live, as an example to the other workers.
PYRUS
I did?
SHYLA
Yes.

[Pyrus shrugs his shoulders and walks out of the room. Shyla follows him out.]

INT—PALACE THRONE ROOM

[Daniel is sitting down when Shyla comes from behind him.]

SHYLA
Do not worry about your friends. I have instructed the guards to treat them well.
DANIEL
I’m sorry, this is unacceptable. I can not be up here while they are down there.
SHYLA
We will change my father’s mind about them.
DANIEL
I don't think you're understanding what they mean to me.
SHYLA
It might just take some time
DANIEL
Or maybe you do. The longer it takes to free them, the more time we have together. Right?
SHYLA
I admit, that is what I would like.
DANIEL
Then release my friends. I won’t leave. I’ll, I’ll stay and get to know you better. I promise.
SHYLA
Then you do feel as I do.

[Shyla kisses Daniel.]

SHYLA
Should I not have done that?
DANIEL
No, it’s okay, it’s just that…uh
SHYLA
Maybe you are still not fully recovered.

[Shyla walks over and presses a button to bring out the sarcophagus.]

DANIEL
I really don’t think that is necessary. Uhh…I’m okay.
SHYLA
But you’ll feel so much better
DANIEL
Its’ uh…please.
SHYLA
For me? You will feel better then you have ever felt. Trust me and I will trust you. I promise.

[Shyla takes off Daniel glasses and walks him to the Sarcophagus. He gets in.]

INT—SGC CONTROL ROOM

[Chevron Guy is seated at the controls with General Hammond behind him.]

CHEVRON GUY
SG-1’s remote code sir. No travelers on route but we are receiving another radio transmission.
HAMMOND
Patch it through.
DANIEL

(over radio)

Mission status remains the same. Need more time to situation diplomatically. Next transmission in 24 hours. Daniel Jackson out.

INT—MINES

[Teal'c, Carter and O'Neill are still lifting and moving around rocks. They aren’t looking so good. Daniel walks in looking quite well.]

O’NEILL
What the hell is going on?
CARTER
It’s been days since we heard from you.
DANIEL
Oh, yeah yeah yeah yeah. Oh sorry. Um, yeah, I’m still working on getting you guys out. Oh in the meantime I’ve discovered something incredible.
O’NEILL
You do know we’re dying down here don’t you?
DANIEL
I’ve taken the opportunity to do a little research on the sarcophagus. It’s amazing what it does to you if use it when you are already healthy.
CARTER
Waa…Is that such a good idea?
DANIEL
Well, I can’t get Shyla to trust me if I don’t show that I trust her.
O’NEILL
Oh, Shyla is it now. First name basis. Shyla.
DANIEL
And I've used it before without any side effects. And look! No glasses!
CARTER
That looks like a side effect to me.
O’NEILL
Daniel, get us out of here.
DANIEL
Oh, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I’m working on it. I just need a little more time. Oh, I sent General Hammond another message. Hopefully he won’t order an all out attack. Look, if we do this right we’ll have access to all the naquadah and the sarcophagus.
CARTER
How many times have you used it?
DANIEL
I don’t know nine or ten. Oh, Sam, everything is so clear. I feel like I could do anything.
O’NEILL
One thing. You only have to do one thing! And if you can’t handle that we’re gonna break out of here without you.
DANIEL
She wants me to marry her.
O’NEILL
What?
O’NEILL
Alright, look….
DANIEL
No, you look, Jack!! I have got everything under control, okay? God, you never show me any respect! Your way didn't work. Now I'm handling it. All you guys have to do is hang in there!

[Daniel turns and walks out.]

INT—THRONE ROOM

[Daniel is standing when Shyla comes from behind him.]

DANIEL
How is he?
SHYLA
The sarcophagus does not make him better the way it used to. Soon it will be time for me to become queen.
DANIEL
Will that be so bad?
SHYLA
You do not approve of my father’s ways.
DANIEL
I can help you make mining much easier and we can defend you from the Goa’uld, if you trust me.
SHYLA
Even after I used your friends to keep you close to me.
DANIEL
Oh yeah. I don’t think you meant any harm.
SHYLA
Then you will stay? Even after they are free?
DANIEL
I have never felt better anywhere in my life. I’ve always felt out of place on my planet. I wanted to make a difference. There is still so much you don’t know about me.
SHYLA
I know all I need to. We can change things here…together.

INT—MINE

[O'Neill, Carter and Teal'c are taking a rest from breaking rocks. They are looking quite disheveled. O'Neill is taking a drink and passes it to Carter.]

O’NEILL
Water? Hey.
CARTER
We don’t use the sarcophagus!
O’NEILL
What?
CARTER
Whoa. Oh that was weird. I was having a vision or something. I kept seeing the memory of Jolinar. The resistance, the Tok’ra, they don’t use the sarcophagus. It does bad things to you. It changes your mind. It takes something from you. I kept hearing…Teal’c what is Kalach?
TEAL’C
It is Goa’uld. It means one’s soul.
CARTER
Sir, we have to stop Daniel.

INT—PALACE THRONE ROOM

[O'Neill is being dragged along the floor by two Jaffa and set down in front of Daniel.]

O’NEILL
The man who would be king.

[The Jaffa hits O'Neill in the back of the knee.]

O’NEILL
Ahh!

[Daniel gets off the throne, seemingly oblivious to what just happened.]

DANIEL
Hi Jack! Ha Ha…Hi Jack!

[Daniel snaps at the Jaffa, making them leave. O'Neill is on his knees in front of Daniel.]

O’NEILL

(coughing)

We’re losing the battle down there you know. Carter has started having Goa’uld flashbacks. Says if you keep using the sarcophagus, you’re going dark side on us…if you haven’t already.
DANIEL
Well don’t worry a bit. We’re getting out of here tomorrow.
O’NEILL
What?
DANIEL
I agreed to marry her.
O’NEILL
You did?
DANIEL
But…

[Daniel jumps down and picks O'Neill off the floor.]

DANIEL
I said I had to go home and straighten a few things out first. And you guys are coming with me.
O’NEILL
And she trusts you?
DANIEL
She…loves me.

INT—THRONE ROOM

[Shyla is helping Pyrus towards the a sarcophagus.]

PYRUS
Love has blinded you.
SHYLA
They are good people. We have done a grave injustice to them.
PYRUS
I pray that you are right.
SHYLA
I must let Daniel go. The choice to return must be his. But, he will come back to me. He can't live without me anymore.

[Pyrus gets into the sarcophagus with a lot of help from Shyla.]

EXT—IN FRONT OF THE STARGATE

[SG-1 stands with Shyla about to dial home.]

SHYLA
He was once the greatest of men. But, he can rule no longer. He lives only to see me married. I extend the sincerest apologizes for the hardship done to you and offer the friendship of our world.
O’NEILL
Well, thanks.
SHYLA
Please know that from now on you will always be welcome here and will be treated with the utmost respect.

[Teal'c, O'Neill turn towards the gate. Carter begins to dial. Daniel walks to Shyla and kisses her.]

DANIEL
I’ll be back. Soon.

INT—GATEROOM

[General Hammond is waiting at the bottom of the ramp for SG-1.]

O’NEILL
We had a nice time, Sir. Carter picked up some Naquada. Teal'c made some new friends as usual. Daniel got engaged. And, um, I'm gonna hit the showers.

INT—INFIRMARY

[Daniel is sitting on a bed with Carter standing next to him.]

DANIEL
This is stupid.
CARTER
Doctor Fraiser says your systems are all out of whack.
DANIEL
Well, I feel fine. God I need to get out of here or I’m gonna go nuts.

INT—LAB

[Carter is testing the Naquadah. Daniel is pacing around the floor.]

CARTER
You’re going to wear a hole in the floor.
DANIEL
I can’t get her out of my head, Sam. I think I’ve made a big mistake.
CARTER
You’re not serious.
DANIEL
I am.
CARTER
You have a wife.
DANIEL
Had. Had a wife. Come on, seriously. How long am I supposed to wait? Even if I find Sha're one day, what are the chances she’ll ever be the same again?
CARTER
Look, your endorphin level was through the roof when we came back. And now you’re coming down off of it. The effects of the sarcophagus are like a narcotic Daniel.
DANIEL
Yeah, that makes you smarter, stronger, you live for hundreds of years, feel great. What the hell is so wrong with it?
CARTER
I think it’s partly what makes the Goa’uld as bad as they are.
DANIEL
How?
CARTER
Who knows. It’s Goa’uld technology Daniel. Maybe it’s healing affects alter your brain chemistry. Increased adrenaline, the hormones that make you more aggressive and irrational. Pyrus probably used to be a decent man. Look at yourself. It’s like you need a fix. You’ve only used it a few times and already it’s changed you.
DANIEL
We can’t just leave it there. We have to study it.
CARTER
We can’t go back either.
DANIEL
Well I’m going.
CARTER
She used us to get you addicted.

[Daniel slams down his fist in a rage and knocks over some bottles.]

DANIEL
You’ve never really known what love is have you?
CARTER
See, the Daniel I know would never have said that.

[Daniel knocks over some more stuff and walks out of the room.]

INT—GENERAL HAMMOND’S OFFICE

[General Hammond is seated talking to Carter and O’Neill.]

HAMMOND
What are you saying Captain?
CARTER
Sir, I think he needs to be confined. He is clearly addicted to the affects.

[Daniel walks in and sets some papers on General Hammond’s desk.]

HAMMOND
What’s this?
DANIEL
It’s my resignation.
O’NEILL
Oh, please.
DANIEL
General, I respectfully request permission to go through the gate to P3R-636
O’NEILL
Request denied!
DANIEL
I wasn’t asking you!

[Daniel starts to collapse.]

CARTER
Daniel?

[Carter catches Daniel as he hits the floor. General Hammond stands up.]

HAMMOND
Doctor Jackson?
CARTER
He’s unconscious.

lGeneral Hammond picks up the phone

HAMMOND
This is General Hammond. Code red medical emergency in my office.

INT—INFIRMARY

[Daniel is lying down in bed with the rest of SG-1 looking over as Doctor Fraiser checks him out.]

FRAISER
I gave him a sedative. His test results are all over the place. Liver function, Kidney function, endorphins, electrolytes, levels indicated muscle deterioration.
O’NEILL
Alright alright, whatever. What’s going on with him?
FRAISER
I have no idea. The most I can do is try to treat the symptoms. But the bottom line is that he seems to be going through some massive physical withdrawal.

[Daniel wakes up and starts to try to get up.]

DANIEL
I have to go back! You’re killing me!

[Daniel starts to pull out his IV. Teal'c runs over to stop him when Daniel pushes him away.]

DANIEL
Stop killing me!

[O'Neill jumps on top of Daniel.]

FRAISER
Hold him down!

[Doctor Fraiser gives Daniel an injection to calm him.]

DANIEL

(in pain)

Ahh…

[Daniel struggles then passes out.]

INT—LAB

[SG-1 and General Hammond are standing around Doctor Fraiser trying to figure out what is wrong with Daniel.]

FRAISER
It’s like all of his cells have lost the ability to function properly and it’s getting worse by the hour.
HAMMOND
There is nothing you can do?
FRAISER
I’m trying.
TEAL’C
The sarcophagus with keep Daniel Jackson alive.
CARTER
No, we can’t let him go back. That thing will just screw him up permanently and we’ll lose him anyway. The memories that Jolinar left in my mind told me that the sarcophagus will take away everything that Daniel is.
O’NEILL
What choice do we have?
CARTER
We wait it out. Just a little longer.

INT—ROOM

[Daniel is now strapped to the bed and writhing about. DOCTOR FRAISER is watching him on a screen when O'Neill walks in.]

FRAISER
Hey.
O’NEILL
How’s he doing?
FRAISER
Well I can’t say for sure but I think maybe the worst is over. His blood work in improving, body temperature is coming down, pulse is normal, BP 120/80.
O’NEILL
So we made the right call.
FRAISER
His cellular function is starting to take back control. The next few hours should tell. Time for another dose of sedative.

[Doctor Fraiser walks out of the room.]

INT—ROOM

[Daniel is still strapped down to the bed. A guard opens the door so Doctor Fraiser can give him his sedative. O'Neill is watching from the Lab via he security camera.]

FRAISER
Okay, Daniel.

[Doctor Fraiser leans over to shine a light in Daniel’s eye. Daniel grabs her and flips her over the bed.]

FRAISER
Ahh!

[The guard outside hears the scream and opens the door.]

GUARD
Stand down!

[Daniel punches him, repeatedly.]

[O'Neill notices on the monitors that Daniel is missing from the bed and runs down the corridor to the room to find the Doctor Fraiser getting off the floor.]

FRAISER
I’m okay. Go.

[O'Neill hits the alarm button and chases after Daniel. Daniel runs into a storage room and shuts the door. O'Neill follows. He turns on the light and starts to look for Daniel. Daniel shoots the light out above O’Neill’s head.]

O’NEILL
Geez! Daniel! Are you trying to kill me?
DANIEL
You're trying to kill me.
O’NEILL
There'll be guards here in thirty seconds.
DANIEL
I'm going back.
O’NEILL
You don't have to! Fraiser says you're getting better.
DANIEL
You're lying!
O’NEILL
Why would I do that?!

[Daniel rushes him, and they fight. Daniel turns out to be really strong with that sarcophagus drug in him. Finally Daniel gets the gun and aims it at O'Neill.]

O’NEILL
Daniel! God…What are you going to do, Daniel? Do you want to kill me? Oh God, look at you. I know what this is. I know what it's like. You can get through it…
DANIEL
No…

[Daniel breaks down crying, and O'Neill pulls him into a hug.]

INT—GENERAL HAMMOND'S OFFICE

[O'Neill, Teal'c and Carter are standing talking to General Hammond.]

CARTER
Probe’s data indicates P3H—826 is a viable next mission for SG-1 sir.

[Daniel walks in.]

DANIEL
I have another suggestion. I think we should go back to P3R-636. And, before you say anything, just hear me out. There are thousands of innocent human beings there who we could free from slavery.
TEAL’C
Shyla can not free her world without putting her people at great risk.
DANIEL
Well, we have to offer her alternatives, new ways to mine the naquadah. I mean, we don’t even know that Goa’uld will notice if the shipments stop.
CARTER
Our preliminary tests do indicate potentially countless military and scientific applications for the raw ore. Might be a compelling reason to try, sir.
HAMMOND
Try what? Last time you were captured and enslaved in that mine.
DANIEL
Look, you want access to the mine but you don’t want to send troops in. I’m offering you a shot at a diplomatic solution. Please, Jack, we need to take the chance.

[O'Neill looks at Daniel and then turns to General Hammond.]

O’NEILL
We can back him up sir. I’d like Daniel back on the team.

INT—THRONE ROOM

[Shyla is leaning against the sarcophagus, crying. Daniel walks in behind her.]

SHYLA
I did not believe you would ever return.
DANIEL
I’m sorry…about your father…about everything.
SHYLA
The sarcophagus could not help him anymore.

[Shyla stands up and faces Daniel.]

SHYLA
You never did love me did you?
DANIEL
I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t care.
SHYLA
I don't deserve to live after what I’ve done to you.
DANIEL
Yes, you do. Your people need you. You may still be able to lead them without turning into what your father became.
SHYLA
How?
DANIEL
You can’t use this anymore. It’s going to be bad. Trust me. But you don’t have to do this alone.

[Shyla walks to the end of the sarcophagus and picks up a staff weapon. Daniel joins her. She aims and fires, destroying the sarcophagus in a blue electrical storm. Daniel takes the staff weapon and hugs her.]
