OPENING CREDIT: DIRECTORS SERIES MARTIN WOOD "THE OTHER GUYS"
[Cast and crew are on location shoot in dunes.]
FELGERGuys, we're in the presence of greatness here. The best of the best! Here we are working along side them. Savor the moment, gentlemen. Savor the moment.
[The camera crane shifts over the location.]
MEYERSCome on, Felger! We're studying an old piece of Goa'uld technology and they're...babysitting us!
These three nerdy scientists are being babysat by SG-1. They're studying some ruins that are relics.
TEAL'CAre you nearing the completion of your research?
FELGERUh…well, it may be a few more days yet.
O'NEILLWhat's your time frame there?
FELGERUm, a day or so, you know, but then you guys can get right back to saving the world again…
[Felger quickly thumps O'Neill on the arm a couple of times. O'Neill looks at his arm then looks at Felger. Felger laughs.]
FELGERFor the seventh time.
[Felger and O'Neill look at Teal'c.]
O'NEILLWhat, you're counting?
[Teal'c raises an eyebrow and shrugs slightly.]
Something goes wrong, there's a battle, SG-1 gets captured.
[Tapping has a blue raincoat over her desert BDUs. She also wears her boonie hat and has a big smile on her face.]
I figure you oughta look cute while you're killing things.
All right, let's try it.This is going to be exciting.
[The crew shoots the firefight between SG-1 and the Jaffa. It is raining. Several sound effects are inserted.]
[The al'kesh aims its weapons and fires.]
[Wood points to a crew member who triggers a switch. Explosions start to happen. The scene intercuts between the actual shoot and the final episode cut.]
[A crew member claps.]
[The three scientists are at the edge of the sand dune, watching SG-1 be escorted by Jaffa.]
(voiceover)Now it's up to the nerds to save them.
But, when they get up to the ship to save them...
FELGERWe're here to rescue you!
O'NEILLFelger! We're on a mission, you nit!
STUDIO SIX SET
(in exaggerated tone)Amanda?
(in exaggerated tone)Yeah?
What do you think of the other guys?
They're great! They're so funny.
[Felger and Coombs, dressed in Jaffa uniforms, enter the building.]
COOMBSWhat about SG-1 then, huh? If they're the big heroes you say they are then they can just bust themselves out.
FELGERCome on, Coombs! This op is up to us and you know it.
FELGEROp, op, op, op! It's operation.
COOMBSWell, just say operation then. Say operation like normal people.
FELGERKeep your voice down.
[McKenna/Felger and Billingsly/Coombs immediately come back around the corner mumbling apologies, averting their eyes and acting like they just accidentally entered a women's bathroom. The crew laughs.]
[Wood interviews Billingsly.]
What do you think of, uh, your experience on "Other Guys"?
(smiling)I'm having a blast.
[Coombs switches off the panel and runs over to the doorway.]
COOMBSThank you, thank you, thank you. You've been a wonderful audience, but now I really must be…
[The door opens to reveal a number of Jaffa on the other side. Coombs reaches over to the panel to close the door.]
STUDIO SIX SET, OUTSIDE CONTROL ROOM
[Anderson and Judge stand in front of the damaged prop door, each holding large objects to knock out the door.]
One more hit!
[Judge hits the prop door, but it only cracks further. Anderson strikes and knocks a chunk out of the door.]
[Later, Judge is laughing. Anderson stands nearby.]
(off camera)So, uh, Chris. Had a little trouble knocking the door in the last time?
[Judge continues to laugh.]
(with mock anger)Oh stop with the chat and just shoot the damn thing.
[Later, they are by the door again.]
[Anderson and Judge continue to knock at the door with the objects. Pieces start to break off.]
[Inside the control room, Coombs trembles in fear.]
[Anderson/O'Neill and Judge/Teal'c knock a large hole in the door. Anderson/O'Neill sticks his head through the opening.]
O'NEILLLet's go home!
[Coombs cries out in relief.]
Amanda, what do you think of the script of "The Other Guys"?
FELGERThis is great! You know, sneaking around with you guys in a Goa'uld pyramid on some alien planet. The only thing missing is some Jaffa chasing us.
[Teal, who has been guarding the doorway into the room, enters and stands behind a pillar. Footsteps can be heard.]
FELGEROkay, that's not my fault.
STUDIO FIVE SET, STARGATE GATE ROOM
(voiceover)It's not enough he got to live the dream and save SG-1's asses.
[O'Neill presents Felger with medal.]
O'NEILLYou are true heroes.
[Felger shakes his hand.]
FELGERThank you, Colonel.
He's gotta dream about Carter kissing him too.
(with silly voice)I especially like the ending, when I get to smooch somebody, and he doesn't die.
[Carter reaches forward to kiss Felger.]
(to camera)This is private, do you mind?
(to Tapping)Because everybody that you've ever known...
Dies! I'm the black widow of Stargate!
GATE ROOM SET FILMING OF FINAL SCENE
[Tapping/Carter kisses McKenna/Felger, while the rest of the cast (in character) tries not to look on. McKenna/Felger moves his hands and arms awkwardly around Tapping/Carter's shoulders, back, and butt as if Felger is uncertain what to do.]
[Tapping and McKenna break away, both laughing uproariously.]
[Tapping kisses Wood, who immediately starts to choke as if dying.]
Now you die!I still have the 'powah'!
(laughs and gives a thumbs up sign)
