Episode Guide

Précis

SG-1's alternate timeline selves attempt to change the past in order to fix the future, taking the Ancient time machine to Chulak to retrieve Teal'c, hoping he'll join them. Forced by Apophis' forces to retreat to the past, they meet up with sole survivor Daniel, helping him launch the rebellion that deposes Ra and keeps the Stargate on Earth.

BEGIN NEW EPISODE

EXT—CHEYENNE MOUNTAIN COMPLEX, DAY

INT—SGC CORRIDOR. LEVEL 22

ALTERNATE DANIEL

(agitated)

Look, the only reason you have the Stargate is 'cause of us.
ALTERNATE HAMMOND
I'm aware of that.
ALTERNATE JACKSON
I'm a linguist. By all accounts, your team may need one.
ALTERNATE CARTER
Ahh… what if something goes wrong with the gate on the other end?
ALTERNATE HAMMOND
Neither of you have had any military training whatsoever. Have either one of you ever even fired a weapon of any kind?
ALTERNATE CARTER
Well… unless you count launching a rocket.
ALTERNATE HAMMOND

Look, I'm sorry.
(sliding his access card into the elevator call reader)

Your expertise may be needed some time in the future, but for now—
ALTERNATE DANIEL
Well, can I ask who is going?

[The elevator doors open to reveal Alternate Jack O'Neill in civilian clothes. He gives them all a look.]

INT—SGC BRIEFING ROOM

[Alternate Hammond enters with Alternate O'Neill, Carter, and Daniel trailing behind him.]

ALTERNATE CARTER

(to Alternate O'Neill)

I don't understand. What made you change your mind?

[Four Air Force men are seated at the briefing room table, dressed in fatigue uniforms and with their backs to Alternate Hammond and the others. The nearest one spins around in his chair. It is Alternate Kawalsky.]

ALTERNATE KAWALSKY

(standing and smiling)

Hi, Jack.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
That's 'Colonel', Major.
ALTERNATE KAWALSKY
You're retired.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(somewhat irritated)

I was.
ALTERNATE DANIEL
I take it you two know each other.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Yeah, we served together a long time ago.
ALTERNATE KAWALSKY
Oh, it wasn't that long ago.
ALTERNATE HAMMOND
Major Kawalsky has been assigned to assemble the team that will go through the Stargate.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
And you knew I couldn't say no if he was involved.
ALTERNATE KAWALSKY

Oh, come on, Colonel. You don't owe me anything. Admit it, you gotta be a little curious.

Traveling to a different planet, through a wormhole.
ALTERNATE CARTER

(smiling)

I know I am.

[Alternate O'Neill gives her a look.]

ALTERNATE KAWALSKY

(to Hammond)

Sir, with all due respect, what are they still doing here?
ALTERNATE HAMMOND

I'm not sure.
(to the airmen guarding the door)

Airmen, please escort—
ALTERNATE DANIEL
Wait wait wait wait wait wait wait. We were all on that tape.
ALTERNATE KAWALSKY
That tape had nothing to do with it. Jack O'Neill's one of the best I've ever served with.
ALTERNATE CARTER
You may not care that this timeline is a direct result of tampering with the past, but you have to acknowledge that the tape said the planet you're going to is enemy territory. An enemy that is way more advanced than us technologically.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
What's your point?
ALTERNATE CARTER
You're literally walking into a totally alien situation, outmanned and outgunned.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Do we have a choice?

[Alternate Carter and Daniel exchanged bemused looks as Alternate Hammond and O'Neill look on.]

END TEASER

OPENING CREDITS

INT—SGC LABORATORY

[Alternate O'Neill is looking into the Puddle Jumper from outside the front window. Alternate Carter and Daniel join him.]

ALTERNATE CARTER
We've only been able to activate the interior lights and the dialing computer. But, according to the tape, you have the gene that can make this ship fly.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(sarcastically)

And travel through time.
ALTERNATE DANIEL
Well, presumably you don't have to do that if you don't want to.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Huh.

[He walks around to the rear ramp of the ship and enters, Alternate Carter and Daniel following him. He walks forward to the pilot seats and looks around.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL
What do I do?
ALTERNATE CARTER

(indicating the pilot's seat to their left)

Sit down.

[Alternate O'Neill sits in the seat and slides it forward. Alternate Daniel sits in the other seat and Alternate Carter stands beside him.</blockquote>

ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Now what?
ALTERNATE DANIEL
You're supposed to have the ability to fly this thing.
ALTERNATE CARTER
With your mind.

[Alternate O'Neill moves a control in each hand, but nothing happens.]

ALTERNATE CARTER
Try not to think about the past.
ALTERNATE DANIEL
Or the future.

[O'Neill nods in a doubtful way then closes his eyes. The console beside him begins to glow and hum. Outside the ship, the technicians note the change and turn to look at the ship as the humming increases.]

ALTERNATE DANIEL
Oh, you so have to let us go with you.
ALTERNATE CARTER
Please.

INT—SGC GATE ROOM

[The Puddle Jumper is sitting in front of the Stargate. Alternate Kawalsky and his team and Alternate O'Neill, Daniel, and Carter are dressed in camouflage uniforms and prepared to embark. Alternate Kawalsky and his men are wearing helmets, while Alternate Daniel and Carter are holding theirs.]

ALTERNATE KAWALSKY

(referring to Alternate Carter and Daniel's helmets)

Put those on.

[They do so but Alternate O'Neill puts on a brown baseball-style cap instead.]

ALTERNATE DANIEL

(to Alternate O'Neill)

How come we have to wear these and you don't?

[O'Neill runs his hands off the end of his cap but doesn't respond. Hammond arrives.]

ALTERNATE HAMMOND
Okay, people. Let me remind you: this mission's recon only. Do not engage the enemy. I'm allowing the use of this ship because of the obvious tactical advantage it provides you. Under no circumstances is it to be used to travel through time, understood?
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Yes, sir.
ALTERNATE HAMMOND

Never in my life would I have imagined giving that order.
(to Alternate O'Neill, referring to Alternate Daniel and Carter)

Are you absolutely certain about them, Colonel?

[Alternate O'Neill looks them over then looks again at Hammond.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL
No, sir.
ALTERNATE HAMMOND
Good luck, and godspeed.

[He walks away.]

ALTERNATE KAWALSKY
All aboard.

INT—PUDDLE JUMPER

[They all board the ship. Alternate O'Neill sits in the pilot's seat while Alternate Kawalsky takes the co-pilot seat with Alternate Daniel and Carter behind them. The rest of Alternate Kawalsky's team sits in the rear compartment.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(to Kawalsky)

Hey. Watch this.

[He cockily puts his hands on the panel in front of him and everything lights up.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(turning to Alternate Daniel)

Oh, by the way, you do have the address to get us back home, correct?
ALTERNATE DANIEL

(nodding)

Yeah.

[Alternate Carter nods as well.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Good. Dial it up.

[Alternate Daniel steps up to the dialing panel and hits the first symbol. The gate spins in response. The gate continues to spin to subsequent symbols of the address.]

INT—SGC CONTROL ROOM

[Alternate Hammond and Alternate McKay are looking on as the gate spins.]

ALTERNATE MCKAY
I give this no more than a fifty-fifty chance of working.
ALTERNATE HAMMOND
Well, according to the tape, it worked for eight years.
ALTERNATE MCKAY
Hmm.

INT—PUDDLE JUMPER

[Alternate Daniel pushes the last symbol and the button at the base of the dialing device. The Stargate opens. Everyone is amazed.]

ALTERNATE DANIEL
Wow.

INT—SGC CONTROL ROOM

ALTERNATE MCKAY
Well, I'm certainly glad it's not me going through that, uh… thing.

INT—PUDDLE JUMPER

ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(to Alternate Carter)

Any idea what to expect?
ALTERNATE CARTER
Not really. According to the tape, we're going to be de-molecularized, transmitted over two thousand light years through subspace, and then, uh, re-materialized on the other side.
ALTERNATE KAWALSKY
I did not need to know that.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Okay.

INT—SGC CONTROL ROOM

ALTERNATE MCKAY

(into microphone)

Gateship One, you're go for launch.

INT—PUDDLE JUMPER

ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(displeased)

'Gate Ship'?
ALTERNATE DANIEL

(making a flying motion with his hand)

Well, it's a ship, it goes through the gate, so…
ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(accepting that)

All right.

INT—SGC CONTROL ROOM

[Alternate Hammond is looking at Alternate McKay with a stern and irritated expression.]

ALTERNATE MCKAY
What? It's a ship that goes through the gate: it's a gateship. Well, I thought it was clever.

INT—PUDDLE JUMPER

[Alternate O'Neill takes the hand controls. The ship moves quickly into the wormhole and travels through it.]

EXT—CHULAK, DAY

[The Puddle Jumper comes rushing out of the wormhole and curves upward into the sky, its engine pods extending and activating. The team is seen through the viewscreen.]

INT—PUDDLE JUMPER

[The viewscreen shows forests passing below and mountains in the distance.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Well, that was cool.
ALTERNATE DANIEL
I didn't feel anything.
ALTERNATE KAWALSKY
Doesn't even feel like we're pulling any g's.
ALTERNATE CARTER
This thing must have inertial dampeners.
ALTERNATE KAWALSKY
See any enemy troops when we came through?
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
No, but that doesn't mean we weren't detected.
ALTERNATE CARTER
Is that a city?

[The viewscreen shows a city beyond the edge of the forest.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL
I'm gonna set her down in those trees.

EXT—SURFACE OF CHULAK, DAY

[The ship has landed, and the rear ramp opens. The teams come rushing out, the officers and airmen with weapons at the ready, surveying the area.]

ALTERNATE DANIEL

(leaving the ship)

Wait a minute. I thought the reason why we brought the ship was so that we didn't have to walk.
ALTERNATE CARTER
We can't just fly into an alien city. The mission is stealth recon, meaning undetected.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(shoving his way between them, whispering harshly)

Meaning, shut up!
ALTERNATE CARTER
Sorry.
ALTERNATE KAWALSKY
Donner, Mansfield, guard the ship. Bosworth, you're with us. C'mon, move out!

[They begin to move away.]

ALTERNATE DANIEL

(in aside, to Alternate Carter)

Why'd we have to park so far away?

[Alternate Carter laughs at his question.]

EXT—FOREST PATH ON CHULAK, DAY

[Alternate Kawalsky and O'Neill are walking side by side, Alternate Carter and Daniel behind them.]

ALTERNATE KAWALSKY
Seriously, why did we bring them?
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Oh, I don't know. I guess I had a gut feeling.
ALTERNATE KAWALSKY
Like Peru?
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
All right, that didn't work out so well.
ALTERNATE KAWALSKY

(laughing lightly)

Sierra Leone? Uganda?
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
All right, look. Maybe the better question here is why'd you invite me on this dog and pony?
ALTERNATE KAWALSKY
Well, let's just say I prefer my good instinct over yours.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Yeah.

[They hear birds chirping and Alternate Daniel points one out to Alternate Carter. There are other sounds, and Alternate O'Neill signals for everyone to stop. He and the other soldiers go to one knee on the ground. Alternate Carter and Daniel get the message and join them.]

ALTERNATE DANIEL

(copying Alternate O'Neill's hand signals)

What's with the…?

[As they try to assess the situation, there is a beeping sound and then a spherical object lands in front of them. A red light glows on it. It is a Goa'uld stun grenade, and it's clearly ticking.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(recognizing that it is a bomb of some sort)

Ah, sh—

[The grenade goes off in a blast of white light, leaving all five people unconscious. Jaffa emerge from the forest all around them, pointing their staff weapons at the bodies.]

EXT—OUSIDE A LARGE FORTRESS ON CHULAK, DAY

INT—LARGE PRISON CELL, CHULAK

[The cell is the same one in which Teal'c turned from Apophis and helped the original team escape after they'd been caught and Sha're taken as a host. Alternate Daniel is lying on the floor and awakens, then sits up. The others are awakening on the steps leading to the gridded cell doors.]

ALTERNATE DANIEL
Hello? Anybody there?

[His vision is very blurry but he makes out several people as indistinct shapes.]

ALTERNATE CARTER
We're all here.
ALTERNATE DANIEL
Where are we?
ALTERNATE KAWALSKY

(irritated)

It looks like a prison cell.
ALTERNATE DANIEL
Anyone seen my glasses?
ALTERNATE CARTER
I think they must have taken them.

[Her glasses are gone as well.]

ALTERNATE DANIEL
Why would they do that?

[She shrugs. There is a sound of footsteps outside. They all stand as the metal mesh doors open and someone strides in wearing a cloak. His face is revealed: it is Alternate Teal'c.]

ALTERNATE CARTER
Teal'c.
ALTERNATE DANIEL

(unable to see well)

From the tape?
ALTERNATE TEAL'C
If you know my name, then you know enough to fear me.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Look, I know that this might sound a little crazy, but—
ALTERNATE TEAL'C
Who are you?
ALTERNATE DANIEL
Hi, uh, uh…

[He moves forward, bumps into Alternate O'Neill and grasps his shoulders, then moves around him to stand in front of Teal'c. Alternate O'Neill faintly wipes at his uniform where Alternate Daniel had touched him.]

ALTERNATE DANIEL

Uh, we're from the Tau'ri. We call it Earth. You see, we found this tape, um, from the past. You see, apparently, we're
(gesturing to the others behind him)
a part of a team.
(indicating Alternate O'Neill, Carter, then Teal'c)
Um, the four of us
(indicating Alternate Kawalsky and Bosworth)
not the two of them. We're called SG-1. Now, we used this time device to go back in the past, and we screwed up the past and changed the future. See, you're not supposed to be still Apophis' First Prime. The Jaffa are supposed to be free, and
(more quietly to Alternate Teal'c, as if in aside)

we know that you think the Goa'uld are false gods.

[Without hesitation, Alternate Teal'c backhands him across the face and he falls. Alternate Carter, Kawalsky and Bosworth run to help him.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(not very seriously)

That wasn't necessary.
ALTERNATE TEAL'C
Speak of such blasphemy again, and I will kill you where you stand.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL

Look, I know this is a lot to throw at you all at one time, and you gotta put up a little show for the boys here, but the fact is, (whispering)

we know the truth.

[Alternate Daniel hauls himself up using Alternate O'Neill's body and puts his arm around Alternate O'Neill's shoulder.]

ALTERNATE DANIEL

(squinting)

You see, it's all on the tape. Uh, you have to see it. It's, uh, um…

[Alternate O'Neill brushes Alternate Daniel's hand off his shoulder, but Alternate Daniel remains close and holds Alternate O'Neill by his nearer shoulder as he continues speaking.]

ALTERNATE DANIEL
It's, it's in a… it's in the camera that, um, um, you took from the bag that you took from me. If you bring it to me, I can, I can show you how it works and we can char—

[Alternate Teal'c grabs him by the jacket at the back of his neck and starts marching him up the steps and out of the cell. Alternate O'Neill maneuvers out of the way and does not try to stop what is happening.]

ALTERNATE DANIEL

(scared, after looking back at Alternate O'Neill)

—we could, we could go, and see it, over at uh, wherever you wanna go.

[The prison door slides closed and the Jaffa leave after Alternate Teal'c.]

INT—APOPHIS' THRONE ROOM, CHULAK

[Alternate Teal'c marches Alternate Daniel down a corridor and to the base of some steps. Alternate Daniel sees a blurry figure dressed in gold and sitting on the throne at the top of the steps.]

ALTERNATE TEAL'C

(forcing him to his knees)

Kneel before your god.
ALTERNATE DANIEL

(bent forward)

Kneeling.

[He straightens on his knees and it is revealed that it is Alternate Apophis sitting on the throne.]

ALTERNATE APOPHIS
Who are you?
ALTERNATE DANIEL
Name's Daniel Jackson. Uh, if you give me back my eyeglasses, I could actually see you.
ALTERNATE TEAL'C
He claims he is of the Tau'ri.
ALTERNATE DANIEL

(to Alternate Teal'c)

You weren't supposed to tell him that.
ALTERNATE APOPHIS
The Tau'ri have no chappa'ai.
ALTERNATE DANIEL
Oh! Sorry, guess I was wrong. I'm sure your information is correct and— In fact, I'm usually quite wrong, quite unreliable actually. To be honest with you, I'm insane.
ALTERNATE APOPHIS

Speak!
(reacting to Alternate Daniel's silence)

Bring him.

[Alternate Teal'c grabs Alternate Daniel by the neck and arm and forces him up the steps and onto his knees at the feet of Alternate Apophis. Alternate Apophis stands and looks down at him.]

ALTERNATE APOPHIS
I think there is much you can tell me.
ALTERNATE DANIEL
Well, if you wanna know about the early settlers of Mesopotamia, I am somewhat of an expert—

[Alternate Apophis raises his left hand and activates the ribbon device onto Alternate Daniel's forehead. Alternate Daniel makes pained sounds and appears confused by what is happening.]

INT—LARGE PRISON CELL, CHULAK

[Alternate Kawalsky and O'Neill are resting against the wide gridded openings of the cell doors, looking outward. Alternate Carter is behind them.]

ALTERNATE CARTER
It's been over an hour.
ALTERNATE KAWALSKY

(to Alternate O'Neill)

Maybe you shouldn't have said anything.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
All I said was, 'This is gonna sound a little crazy'.
ALTERNATE CARTER
While there are obvious similarities, our timeline is different from the one in which Teal'c came to believe that the Goa'uld were false gods.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Are you saying this guy might not turn?
ALTERNATE CARTER

(grimacing)

It's possible.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
And you're telling me this now?

INT—APOPHIS' THRONE ROOM, CHULAK

[Alternate Apophis is still torturing Alternate Daniel with the ribbon device as Teal'c looks on without emotion. Alternate Apophis turns off the device, and Alternate Daniel crumples to the floor, still conscious but clenching his hands in agony.]

ALTERNATE TEAL'C
This one is strong.
ALTERNATE APOPHIS
Leave us.

[Alternate Teal'c bows and backs away. Alternate Daniel rises on his arms and looks up at Alternate Apophis.]

ALTERNATE APOPHIS
You will tell me all that you know.

[Alternate Apophis activates the device again and Alternate Daniel begins groaning. Alternate Teal'c turns to look at what is going on, and appears disturbed by what he sees. But he turns and leaves the room.]

INT—LARGE PRISON CELL, CHULAK

[Alternate Kawalsky and O'Neill are still leaning against the gridded prison door. At the sound of someone approaching, Alternate Carter and Bosworth get up from where they are sitting and move to the door. Alternate Teal'c arrives, alone.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL
What's goin' on?
ALTERNATE TEAL'C

(holding out the video camera from Alternate Daniel's pack)

Show me.

[Alternate O'Neill looks surprised, and Alternate Carter steps forward and takes the camera. She opens the viewscreen, starts the playback, and turns it around to show it to Alternate Teal'c. The voices and images of the original team are heard and seen.]

DANIEL
Um, Teal'c, you should say something.
TEAL'C
The Jaffa are free. False god that he is, Apophis is long dead. A new medicine, tretonin, has liberated us from our dependence upon symbiotes. The Jaffa have risen up as brothers and sisters and defeated the Goa'uld.
ALTERNATE TEAL'C

(completely shocked by what he has seen)

What trickery is this?
ALTERNATE CARTER
It's not a trick.
TEAL'C
You have a son, Rya'c, who is now married and a strong leader among the newly formed Jaffa nation. If all these things have not come to pass, you must believe that the present in which you now live exists only because the past has been mistakenly altered. It must be restored.

[Carter shuts off the tape playback and closes the camera. Alternate Teal'c is speechless with shock.]

ALTERNATE CARTER
Please. You have to help us. The reason we came here was to get you so we could go back in time and fix things.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
That's not true. We just wanna get out of here. Now, if you can help us, we'll do our best to help you.
ALTERNATE TEAL'C
I cannot free you.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
What about our weapons. Our vests. Can you get us those?

[Alternate Teal'c looks at him, considering what he has heard.]

INT—LARGE PRISON CELL, CHULAK

[Some time later, the gridded doors slide open and two Jaffa drag an unconscious Alternate Daniel into the room. They leave him on the floor, not gently.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Easy, easy! Get outta here!

[The Jaffa leave, and the doors slide closed.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL

Pewter pissants… (he kneels beside Alternate Daniel and places a hand on his chest)

Hey.
ALTERNATE DANIEL

(grunting, with his eyes just opening)

I didn't tell them anything.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Good for you! How you feelin'?
ALTERNATE DANIEL
Not so good, really.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Sorry. Maybe this'll make you feel better.

[He gestures to Alternate Kawalsky and the others where they are standing below, and they rush to a dark, partially hidden corner of the cell. Alternate O'Neill pulls Alternate Daniel to his feet, and he grunts and rubs his back but follows. He sees the others pulling on their vests and readying their weapons.]

ALTERNATE DANIEL
How'd you…?
ALTERNATE CARTER
Teal'c. He brought us the camera; I showed him the tape.
ALTERNATE DANIEL
I don't think he can be trusted.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
He gave us our weapons back. That's a good start.
ALTERNATE CARTER
He's gonna meet us on the way back to the ship.

[Alternate Kawalsky is attaching small blocks of explosives to the smaller rear door of the cell.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(handing Alternate Daniel a pistol)

Safety off, point and shoot.

[Alternate Daniel holds the weapon sloppily, nearly pointing it at Alternate O'Neill.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(pushing the gun down)

Not at me.

[Alternate Bosworth hands a pistol to Alternate Carter.]

ALTERNATE CARTER
I don't really like guns.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Neither do I. How do you feel about explosives?
ALTERNATE CARTER
Those I like a little better.
ALTERNATE KAWALSKY

(finishing setting the explosives)

Cover.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(gesturing to them)

Let's go.

[They take cover behind a partial wall. Alternate O'Neill nods to Alternate Kawalsky, who pushes a button on the electronic remote control. The explosive blows.]

EXT—FOREST ON CHULAK, DAY

[The team is jogging along the forest path, Alternate O'Neill and Kawalsky in the lead.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(into radio)

Airmen? This is O'Neill.
AIRMAN

(via radio)

We were starting to get worried.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
We're on our way. ETA, ten minutes.

[They stop and raise their weapons as Alternate Teal'c steps into their path, his staff weapon raised.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL
We gotta get goin' here.
ALTERNATE KAWALSKY
We got a whole battalion on our ass.

[Alternate Teal'c fires past Alternate O'Neill to hit Alternate Daniel in the chest. He falls to the ground. The others point their weapons at Alternate Teal'c but he deactivates his staff and lowers it.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(angry)

What the hell was that?
ALTERNATE KAWALSKY
Shoot him, Jack. Let's shoot him and get the hell out of here.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(quietly)

Why'd you do that?
ALTERNATE TEAL'C
He was a Goa'uld. Apophis implanted him with a symbiote in order to gain access to the knowledge in his mind.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
How do you know?
ALTERNATE TEAL'C
I can sense it. Your friend did not give in to torture.
ALTERNATE KAWALSKY
He's lying.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Why would he lie, Kawalsky?
ALTERNATE CARTER
If he wanted us all dead, why aren't we surrounded by Jaffa right now?
ALTERNATE KAWALSKY
We will be in a few seconds if we don't get the hell out of here now. And I'm not taking him with us.
ALTERNATE TEAL'C
Apophis has ordered a fleet of ha'tak vessels to the Tau'ri.
ALTERNATE CARTER
He's sending ships to Earth?
ALTERNATE TEAL'C
The symbiote implanted within Daniel Jackson was a spy intended to accompany you. Apophis now knows what Daniel Jackson knew. He knows that you came in a ship. He knows that the Tau'ri is a threat.
ALTERNATE KAWALSKY
How the hell do we know you're not a spy?

[Alternate Daniel's right arm suddenly rises, holding the pistol, and he shoots Bosworth twice with it. Then he sits up and shoots at Alternate Teal'c, hitting his left arm. Alternate O'Neill and Kawalsky turn and shoot Alternate Daniel with their machine guns, hitting him in the torso many times. He falls back to the ground, his eyes open. His eyes glow briefly, then he closes his eyes, dead.]

ALTERNATE CARTER
His eyes glowed!

[Alternate Kawalsky rushes back to check the pulse of Alternate Daniel and then Bosworth.]

ALTERNATE KAWALSKY

(to Alternate O'Neill, shaking his head)

He's dead.

[A staff blast from the forest hits the tree right next to Alternate Kawalsky. Many more blasts start coming in.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Go! Go!

[The three begin running with Alternate O'Neill covering them, firing. They all race through the forest under fire and reach the ship, which is also under fire from a different direction. One of the airman guarding the ship is hit as the other keeps firing. Alternate Carter and Teal'c make it onto the ship and are firing their weapons from within it. The other airman gets hit and Alternate O'Neill moves to replace him and fire in that direction. Alternate Kawalsky is firing at an line of advancing Jaffa.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Kawalsky!
ALTERNATE KAWALSKY
Go! Start it up!

[Alternate O'Neill runs into the ship and takes the pilot seat. As Alternate Kawalsky turns to run inside, he is hit in the back with two staff blasts.]

ALTERNATE CARTER
Kawalsky's been hit!
ALTERNATE TEAL'C
Go!

[Alternate O'Neill activates the ship, and the ramp begins to close as Alternate Teal'c continues firing through the shrinking opening. Alternate Kawalsky lies unmoving on the ground outside. The ship lifts off and speeds away, some small damage from the still-incoming staff blasts showing on its hull.]

INT—PUDDLE JUMPER

[Alternate Carter appears shell shocked and sinks to the bench in the rear compartment. Alternate Teal'c looks at her curiously.]

ALTERNATE TEAL'C
Are you injured?
ALTERNATE CARTER

No. I, I've just never seen anyone killed before. Daniel and Kawalsky… (noticing his wound)

Oh my god, you've been shot!
ALTERNATE TEAL'C
It will heal.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
All right, we've got some problems here.

[A blast hits the ship and sparks go off inside the cabin.]

EXT—ABOVE SURFACE OF CHULAK, DAY

[Two death gliders are pursuing the Puddle Jumper, firing on it maneuvers rapidly.]

INT—PUDDLE JUMPER

[Alternate Carter joins Alternate O'Neill and sits in the co-pilot seat. Alternate Teal'c sits behind her.]

ALTERNATE TEAL'C
Gliders.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
I can't shake 'em, either.

[More short circuits and small explosions occur in the cabin.]

ALTERNATE TEAL'C
The gate will be well guarded.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
You know something, I don't think we're gonna make it to the gate.

[Alternate Carter looks back at the rear cabin with the time travel device, then looks back at Alternate O'Neill.]

ALTERNATE CARTER

There is a way out.
(to Alternate Teal'c)

Was there a Stargate on this planet five thousand years ago?
ALTERNATE TEAL'C
I believe so.

[Alternate Carter looks at Alternate O'Neill, who looks doubtful. She nods at him in encouragement. He closes his eyes in concentration. The time device glows.]

EXT—ABOVE THE SURFACE OF CHULAK, DAY

[The Puddle Jumper enters the time distortion field and emerges in the same place, but now at sunset. The ship is still flying above the forest but is not being pursued by gliders.]

ALTERNATE CARTER
I think you did it.
ALTERNATE TEAL'C
What has he done?
ALTERNATE CARTER
I think we just traveled back in time.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Check it out. Dial Earth.

[Alternate Carter dials the symbols for Earth on the dialing device. The ship enters a wormhole.]

EXT—EGYPT, 5000 YEARS AGO, DAY

[The Stargate is situated near a Great Pyramid and other smaller structures. It is active, and the Puddle Jumper shoots out of it and flies away.]

INT—PUDDLE JUMPER

ALTERNATE CARTER

(looking out the viewscreen)

Well, this is definitely ancient Egypt.
ALTERNATE TEAL'C
Those ha'tak vessels bore the mark of Ra.
ALTERNATE CARTER
He ruled on Earth during this period.
ALTERNATE TEAL'C
It is likely we were detected exiting the chappa'ai.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Well, no ships on our tail, but I think we'll skedaddle anyway.
ALTERNATE CARTER
You're saying you're on board with trying to fix the past?
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Well, we did kinda screw up our timeline, didn't we?
ALTERNATE CARTER
Well, the only way to stop the invasion on Earth is to make sure that it never happens.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Yeah, remind me how we do that, again?

[Alternate Carter looks at him but does not offer an answer.]

EXT—DESERT IN EGYPT, DAY

[The Puddle Jumper is parked on the sand, surrounded by small dunes. Alternate O'Neill exits via the rear ramp, followed by the other two.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL
All right, here's the plan. We make contact with the locals…
ALTERNATE TEAL'C
And then?
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
That's all I got so far.

[He walks off, and the others follow.]

ALTERNATE CARTER
Uh, any idea what time it is, exactly?
ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(looking at his watch)

Three o'clock.
ALTERNATE CARTER
Uh, sorry, I-I kinda meant what year.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Well, you and Daniel said there was some kind of a failed rebellion.
ALTERNATE CARTER
In 2995 B.C.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(looking at her in shock)

B.C.?
ALTERNATE CARTER
Colonel.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Kidding. And call me Jack, will ya?

[She nods as they continue walking.]

EXT—EGYPTIAN VILLAGE, 2995 B.C., DAY

[This appears to be the same village that the original SG-1 visited looking for the ZPM. As the three enter, a young boy runs to his father, screaming words of fear. The father takes the boy in his arms and moves away.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Hey! It's all right, folks, we come in peace, nothin' to be afraid of.
ALTERNATE CARTER
I doubt they speak English.

[Katep, the surviving brother whom the original SG-1 met, approaches them.]

KATEP
Hello.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
He does.
KATEP
Yes. I am Katep.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
I am Jack.
KATEP

(looking at them each in turn)

O'Neill. Colonel Carter, and Teal'c.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
How'd you know—
KATEP

Please come with me. Ra's patrols come through here often. They must not see you (to Alternate Teal'c)

Especially you. Please, come.

[He jogs away and they follow.]

INT—TENT IN EGYPTIAN VILLAGE

[Katep leads them into a large tent made of pieces of fabric.]

KATEP

(gesturing for them to enter)

Please.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
How do you know who we are?
KATEP
This is not the first time we have met.
ALTERNATE CARTER
You knew the other SG-1 team.
KATEP
Five years ago. You came, you were witness to the death of my brother at the hands of Ra. After you were trapped here, we planned an uprising together.
ALTERNATE CARTER
So much for causality.
ALTERNATE TEAL'C
Ra is still here. We have seen his ship.
KATEP
Our first attempt at gathering forces for the rebellion did not go well. We had to expose ourselves to those who proved still loyal to Ra. You were captured and executed long before the plan could be finished.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Really? All of us?
KATEP
All but one.

[A man walks into the tent, his head bowed and covered. He stands up straight as he pushes back the covering. It is Daniel. He looks at each of them in turn. Alternate Carter smiles at him.]

DANIEL
Well, this can't be a good sign.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Why's that?
DANIEL
Where am I?
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Ancient Egypt?
DANIEL
No, I mean the me from your timeline.
ALTERNATE TEAL'C
I killed you.
DANIEL
Why?
TEAL'C
You were a Goa'uld spy.
DANIEL

(matter of factly)

A good reason.
ALTERNATE CARTER
It was horrible.
DANIEL

(uninterested)
Yeah, I'm sure.
(emphatic)

Why are you here?
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Yes. Excellent question.
DANIEL
You don't know.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Well, I thought I did, there, for a while, and then I realized I… didn't.
DANIEL
Well, I know why I'm here.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Good! Let's start there.
DANIEL
We came back in time to get a ZPM.
ALTERNATE CARTER
Right! It was buried with the tape. Why is it so important? I think you were about to explain it but the, uh, the batteries on the camera ran out.
DANIEL
Long story. Why don't you take a seat?

[Alternate Cater and O'Neill sit on a bench while Alternate Teal'c remains standing.]

DANIEL

Basically we got trapped here because
(indicating Alternate Carter)
you didn't want to affect the timeline, but ultimately
(indicating Alternate O'Neill and Teal'c)

you and you couldn't stand the idea of living out the rest of your lives under Ra's rule without doing anything. We remembered there was a rebellion here on Earth. That's how the gate got buried in the first place. So, we figured what difference does it make if we're involved or not? Unfortunately, we never got a chance to execute the plan.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
We heard.
DANIEL
Yes. We tried to do too much too fast. Since then, Katep and I have been slowly building up an underground movement. I can only assume things don't go well because if you're here, you saw the tape, and the future still needs fixing.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Somethin' like that.
ALTERNATE CARTER
Oh, we didn't just see the tape. We saw the tablet.
DANIEL
What tablet?
ALTERNATE CARTER
Oh. The one you haven't written yet. And put where the Stargate was supposed to be buried.
DANIEL
Supposed to be.
ALTERNATE CARTER
In our timeline, the rebellion that you planned actually works. Ra ends up leaving, and Earth is freed, but, uh, Ra takes the Stargate with him.
DANIEL
Okay, that's a problem.
ALTERNATE CARTER
Yes! The gate is never found at Giza, and none of us join the Stargate program. But you left a tablet in an obscure Egyptian dialect telling us the date of the rebellion and where to find the second Stargate in Antarctica.
DANIEL
Good for me. So you're here to make sure Ra doesn't take this Stargate.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
It's a plan.

[A young boy rushes in. Daniel bends down and holds him by the shoulders.]

BOY
Daneel! Daneel! Jaffa!
KATEP
We must hide.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Where?
KATEP
In here.

[Katep and the young boy peel back a rug and start digging sand out of the way. They uncover a square slab and pull it away, revealing a vertical shaft with a wooden ladder against one side.]

EXT—EGYPTIAN VILLAGE, 2995 B.C., DAY

[The populace is running chaotically out of the path the Jaffa, who arrive in force from one side of the village. The stride in, treating the villagers roughly. One stands watching, his face covered by a Jaffa helmet.]

INT—CHAMBER BENEATH THE TENT

[Daniel is the last of the team to descend the ladder, and he uses a torch to illuminate the large store of weapons at one end of the chamber. There are many staff weapons arrayed against the wall, zats piled in a box, and the original SG-1's packs.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Sweet.

INT—TENT IN EGYPTIAN VILLAGE

[A Jaffa enters the tent. Katep and the young boy are there.]

JAFFA

(to someone outside the tent)

Kree! Lok'nel!

[Other Jaffa enter the tent. Katep and the boy move to stand on top of the rug on the stone that covers the chamber.]

INT—CHAMBER BENEATH THE TENT

DANIEL
We've got secret stores of weapons like this in several positions throughout the region.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
How many troops?
DANIEL
Uh, a couple of thousand, but that's not really the issue. According to you, my own account of history says we win the revolt.
ALTERNATE CARTER
We just need to make sure that the gate stays here and gets buried.
DANIEL
Which means we have to steal it and hide it from Ra.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
But it's out in the open, close to his ship.
ALTERNATE TEAL'C
Holding such a position against a ha'tak would be virtually impossible, even for a short period of time.
ALTERNATE CARTER
Also, the gate is kinda heavy.
DANIEL
Well, we also have a ship.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(gesturing with his hands)

Yes, but you see, the ship fits in the gate, not the other way around.
ALTERNATE CARTER
There has to be a way that we can cable the gate to the ship; fly it out.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Yeah, but we still gotta get close to it without being detected.
DANIEL
Well, that's easy. The ship has a cloaking device.

[The others look at him in shock.]

DANIEL
Makes it invisible.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(incredulous)

You're telling me this now?
DANIEL
I was sure I mentioned it on the tape.

[Alternate O'Neill looks at Alternate Carter, and she shakes her head 'no'.]

ALTERNATE TEAL'C
If we were able to time our approach to coordinate with the uprising, we may yet have a chance.
ALTERNATE CARTER
We'll need to test the cloak. We took an awful lot of damage coming out of Chulak.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(irritated, to Daniel)

Because we didn't know about the damned cloak!
DANIEL
I was sure I mentioned it on the tape!

[Dust begins to fall on them as the stone is slid away from the opening above them. Katep looks down on them.]

KATEP
They are gone!

EXT—EGYPTIAN DESERT, 2995 B.C., DAY

[Alternate O'Neill and Carter are walking alone, still dressed in their camouflage BDU's.]

ALTERNATE CARTER
You ever wonder what your life's gonna be like in the future?
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Won't really be my life, will it.
ALTERNATE CARTER
No, but still. I mean, I've led such a small and unimportant existence, I can't ever imagine being a hero who saves the planet.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Well, we do have a time machine. We could go check it out.
ALTERNATE CARTER
No way. We've already screwed up enough. Once we're done with the gate, we need to destroy the ship.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Seriously?
ALTERNATE CARTER
Absolutely.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(realization hitting)

You mean we have to stay here?

[Alternate Carter nods.]

ALTERNATE CARTER
I wonder if the future me has a boyfriend.

INT—PUDDLE JUMPER

[Alternate O'Neill and Carter enter and move to the front. Alternate O'Neill sits in the pilot's seat. He has to tap the console several times to get the ship to respond and power up.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL
So what do I do?
ALTERNATE CARTER
Um, try thinking 'invisible'.

[He shrugs and puts his hands on the controls.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL

Okay.
(he closes his eyes and waits a moment)

How do we know if it's working?

[Alternate Carter jogs outside to look. The ship is not cloaked.]

ALTERNATE CARTER

(calling inside)

Nope!

INT—TENT IN EGYPTIAN VILLAGE

[Daniel, Alternate Teal'c, and Katep are seated around a table with a stack of maps and battle plans written on parchment.]

ALTERNATE TEAL'C

(a bit surprised)

Your strategy is good. But it does not work well as a distraction in our plan to steal the chappa'ai.
DANIEL
Wait, we know this plan works. If we alter it…
KATEP
We may fail.
DANIEL
With this plan, the uprising succeeds, and Ra leaves.
ALTERNATE TEAL'C

And Ra takes the chappa'ai. If we are to be successful in keeping Ra from taking the chappa'ai, we must focus the efforts of the rebellion on distracting him from it.
(seeing Daniel's uncertain look)

Trust me.

INT—PUDDLE JUMPER

[Alternate Carter is looking at a compartment of clear, glass-like components. She takes one out and begins testing it using a lighted cable hanging from the ceiling. Alternate O'Neill looks on from the front of the ship.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL
How's it goin'?
ALTERNATE CARTER
I've never seen this kind of technology before.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(gently challenging)

Hey, you're supposed to be a genius. That's why I brought you along.
ALTERNATE CARTER

I'm working on it. I think the power relay was overloaded. I may be able to reroute the circuit to the control interface… (noting that he is staring at her)

What?
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
It's just a little weird hearin' that kind of stuff come out of someone so…
ALTERNATE CARTER

(turning to him, defensively)

So what?
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Hot.
ALTERNATE CARTER

(after a cough, disbelieving)

Really?
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Yeah.
ALTERNATE CARTER
Wow. Um, it's just you… you're not the kind of guy that I usually attract.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
No?
ALTERNATE CARTER
No. God. Wow! This is kinda awkward.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Yeah, it's gettin' there.
ALTERNATE CARTER
I'm kind of attracted to… Daniel.

[He stares at her with a confused look.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(shocked)

What?

[He steps closer to her.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(amazed)

Really?
ALTERNATE CARTER
Sorry.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
No, that's okay, no problem there. It's just, you know… First impressions, I kinda thought he was…

[He rotates his hand up and down. She shakes her head and looks at him, completely confused.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Never mind.

[She nods. He puffs out a breath and turns back to the piloting compartment. She goes back to examining the component, grimacing.]

EXT—DESERT OF EGYPT, 2995 B.C., DAY

[Alternate O'Neill is lying on a sand dune very near the ship. Through his binoculars, he sees a patrol of Jaffa approaching. He activates his small radio.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(into radio)

Carter. How's it goin' in there?

INT—PUDDLE JUMPER

[Alternate Carter is still examining the glass component. She answers the radio.]

ALTERNATE CARTER
Uh, I think I'm almost there.

EXT—DESERT OF EGYPT, 2995 B.C., DAY

ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(into radio)

That's good. We're about to have some company.

INT—PUDDLE JUMPER

[He jogs back to the ship and enters via the rear ramp, closing it behind him.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL
We have a patrol on its way here.

[She stops what she's doing as he takes the pilot seat.]

ALTERNATE CARTER
Try it.

[He activates the ship via the controls and looks around.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Nothin's happening.

[Alternate Carter returns to working on the panel above her head.]

INT—TENT IN EGYPTIAN VILLAGE

[Alternate Teal'c, Daniel, and Katep are still looking at the battle plans. They hear Alternate O'Neill's voice over the radio.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(via radio)

Hey, guys, we got a little problem here.

INT—PUDDLE JUMPER

[Alternate Carter is still working on the panel above her head.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Carter, forget it. I'm just gonna take off.

[She stops working.]

EXT—EGYPTIAN DESERT OUTSIDE THE SHIP, DAY

[The Jaffa patrol is marching in a narrow line between sand dunes. They are very close to the ship but haven't seen it yet.]

INT—PUDDLE JUMPER

[Alternate O'Neill is looking around the pilot seat.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(slapping the panel he had hit before)

God! Now that's not workin'.
ALTERNATE CARTER
Oh boy!

[She goes back to working on the panel components.]

EXT—EGYPTIAN DESERT OUTSIDE THE SHIP, DAY

[The patrol continues to advance.]

INT—PUDDLE JUMPER

ALTERNATE CARTER
Try the cloak now.

[Alternate O'Neill closes his eyes.]

EXT—EGYPTIAN DESERT OUTSIDE THE SHIP, DAY

[The ship becomes cloaked just as the Jaffa patrol reaches the edge of the sand dune where they would have seen it.]

INT—PUDDLE JUMPER

ALTERNATE CARTER

(coming to stand beside Alternate O'Neill)

Did it work?

EXT—EGYPTIAN DESERT OUTSIDE THE SHIP, DAY

[The Jaffa patrol approaches the ship's location. They do not react to it.]

INT—PUDDLE JUMPER

ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(gesturing to the view screen)

Apparently.

[Some of the lights go off and there is a sound of something powering down.]

EXT—EGYPTIAN DESERT OUTSIDE THE SHIP, DAY

[The ship un-cloaks. The Jaffa see it and immediately advances on it, surrounding it, their staff weapons pointed at it. From inside, Alternate Carter and O'Neill can see the Jaffa, who can in turn see them through the viewscreen.]

JAFFA

(to Alternate O'Neill)

Shak'na kree!
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
What?

[The Jaffa shoots at the viewscreen with his staff weapon. Other Jaffa begin firing.]

INT—PUDDLE JUMPER

[There are sparks flying inside the ship.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(getting up and pushing Alternate Carter toward the rear)

Go, go, go, go!

EXT—EGYPTIAN DESERT OUTSIDE THE SHIP, DAY

[The Jaffa are firing at the ship from all directions.]

INT—PUDDLE JUMPER

[Alternate O'Neill closes the door between the command area and the time machine/aft compartment. He kneels down with Alternate Carter behind the time machine as the shooting continues.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Get down! Whoa.
ALTERNATE CARTER
This could be a problem.
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Ya think?!
ALTERNATE CARTER
If they penetrate the hull and hit the engines, the energy blasts could feed back into the power—
ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Carter!
ALTERNATE CARTER
We could explode!

[He looks her for a moment, concerned, as the weapons continue to fire, then activates his radio.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(into radio)

Daniel, Teal'c.
DANIEL

(over radio)

We're almost there!

EXT—EGYPTIAN DESERT OUTSIDE THE SHIP, DAY

[Daniel and Alternate Teal'c approach the ship and hear the weapons firing. They crouch behind a sand dune and can see the ship under relentless fire.]

DANIEL
Well, this doesn't look good.
ALTERNATE TEAL'C
Indeed.
DANIEL
Though it is quite ironic. This whole thing started because Sam didn't want to take the Jumper back from a Jaffa patrol.

INT—PUDDLE JUMPER

[The damage continues inside the ship, with various sparks and small explosions.]

ALTERNATE CARTER
Look, if we don't make it?

[She takes his head in both hands and kisses him. After she stops, he looks surprised and then very irritated.]

ALTERNATE O'NEILL
Wait a minute. You said you liked Daniel.
ALTERNATE CARTER
I lied. I just wanted to get to know you better. You see, usually I'm a very cautious person and I tend to think things—

[He looks around briefly and then grabs her head and kisses her as sparks fly all around the cabin. She grabs him back and they continue kissing.]

EXT—EGYPTIAN DESERT OUTSIDE THE SHIP, DAY

[The Jaffa are still firing at the ship.]

ALTERNATE TEAL'C
Jaffa!

[He and Daniel are walking up to the Jaffa, their weapons lowered. The Jaffa take note of them and stop firing at the ship.]

ALTERNATE TEAL'C

(dropping his staff weapon to the sand)

Hear me! Ra is not a god! You can live free!

[The Jaffa leader points his staff weapon at them.]

JAFFA
A'kek, shol'va!
DANIEL
I don't think he bought it.

INT—PUDDLE JUMPER

[Alternate O'Neill and Carter are kissing but then realize the firing has stopped. They open their eyes and stop.]

EXT—EGYPTIAN DESERT OUTSIDE THE SHIP, DAY

ALTERNATE TEAL'C
Relinquish your weapons and surrender!
JAFFA
Kel'tek trey! Lo ta'nak!
DANIEL
Yeah, I thought you'd say that.
ALTERNATE TEAL'C

(shouting)

Shal'tek!

[Katep emerges from behind a sand dune, holding an automatic rifle and wearing one of the SG-1 vests. He gestures and yells, and many other Egyptian villagers rise from behind the dunes, armed with staff weapons and zats. The Jaffa look to see most of the ridges around them lined with armed villagers, yelling very loudly together, their arms raised. The Jaffa leader moves his staff weapon around to point it at Daniel, who raises his rifle in return. Realizing his position is hopeless, the Jaffa leader drops his staff weapon, and the other Jaffa follow suit. The villagers cheer very loudly. Daniel activates his radio.]

DANIEL

(into radio)

Sam, Jack. It's all clear. You can come out now.

INT—PUDDLE JUMPER

ALTERNATE O'NEILL

(into radio, casually)

In a minute.

EXT—EGYPTIAN DESERT OUTSIDE THE SHIP, DAY

[Daniel and Alternate Teal'c exchanged puzzled looks.]

INT—PUDDLE JUMPER

[Alternate O'Neill and Carter begin kissing again. They tip over sideways and fall to the floor together. The time machine sparks once, then stops.]

ALTERNATE CARTER

(from the floor, not visible)

I can fix that.

INT—SGC, DANIEL'S OFFICE

[The original SG-1's video from their trip into the past is playing on a computer monitor.]

DANIEL

(on video)

Uh, Jack, you should say something.
O'NEILL

(on video)
Uh, college football is played on Saturdays, pro on Sundays, and there are no fish in my pond, at all, where I fish.
(looking back at Carter and Daniel)

I think that covers it for me.

[O'Neill, Daniel, Carter, and Teal'c are in Daniel's office watching the video. Daniel stops the playback. There is a live ZPM sitting in a box on the table.]

CARTER

(to O'Neill)

Is that correct?
O'NEILL
If it is, we don't do anything?
CARTER
Apparently nothing we did affected the timeline.
O'NEILL
But we didn't do anything.
CARTER
Not yet. Apparently we were going to, two weeks from now, but now we don't have to.
O'NEILL
Excellent! That's it! I like it!

[Daniel and Teal'c smile and walk away. Carter reaches to lift the ZPM in its box.]

CARTER
Okay, I'm gonna get this up to the lab for analysis.
O'NEILL

(grabbing the box to stop her)

No! I'll take it. There's a whole room full of geeks up there just dyin' to get their hands on this. You've got packin' to do.

[He picks up the box and walks away with it. Carter appears slightly miffed but smiles mildly after he leaves.]

EXT—O'NEILL'S MINNESOTA CABIN, NEXT TO A POND

[A fishing line falls into the water, the float bouncing on the surface. It is pulled back to shore to reveal Carter and O'Neill sitting in chairs on the dock, the cabin behind them. O'Neill is reeling in the line as Carter sits with her own line.]

CARTER
This is great.
O'NEILL
I told ya!
CARTER
I can't believe we didn't do it years ago.
O'NEILL
Yes, well, let's not dwell.

[She chuckles. A fish jumps out of the water as Teal'c and Daniel walk up behind them, carrying a cooler between them and a folding chair in their other hands.]

CARTER
Didn't that tape say there were no fish in your pond?

[Carter and O'Neill look at each other.]

O'NEILL
Close enough.

[Carter nods. O'Neill glances back at Daniel and Teal'c. Daniel pulls a drink from the cooler and walks onto the dock as O'Neill casts his line again. He stands behind O'Neill and Carter as Teal'c sits in his chair on the grass.]

FADE OUT
