Episode Quotes
Vala: Look at my hands, all right, they are raw and bleeding... I have broken every nail, we have been out here in the scorching heat for days... I haven't showered...
Daniel: None of us have.
Vala: That is painfully obvious!

Daniel: (reading an artifact) It says "safely kept is the 'something' of old."
Vala: What's the "something," Daniel?
Daniel: Well, if I knew for sure I wouldn't have said the "something." Why am I answering her?
Vala: Stop your yammering and open it.

Vala: We've dug how many holes in the ground? Help me out, Muscles.
Teal'c: Many.

Prior #1: Tell me, what is this artifact you have found?
Mitchell: Hang on a second, shouldn't you know that already? Your logic.

Prior #1: Foolhardy are those who do not follow the path.
Mitchell: Anyone want to bet what he's going to say next?
Prior #1: Kill them.
Mitchell: Could've made money on that one.

Mitchell: Pre-flight.
Marks: We're ready to go, sir.
Mitchell: Weapons to maximum.
Marks: Sir?
Mitchell: It's a joke, Marks: make it go.

Marrick: Why was I not notified that you had someone on board with new intel about Ori army activity?
Mitchell: Well, I'm sure I called for you there was no answer. (to Sam) Oh wait, I may not have pressed the comm button all the way down. Wow, I must have looked stupid standing there talking to myself.

Mitchell: My grandma said "You want honey? Follow the bees."
Marks: Sounds like a good way of getting stung to me.

Adria: Somehow you and your simple human friends managed to destroy quite a large group of very powerful Ascended beings.
Vala: Well, we're a very determined bunch. I always say you never know what you can do until you try.

Prior #2: You demonstrate great courage facing me in person, General.
Landry: Courage is only required when facing that which you fear.
Prior #2: The flames of ignorance burn without pain. Beware the power or it will consume you before you know.

Prior #2: I was wrong. You are not courageous, General. You are without reason. your planet will burn in all the depths of darkness.
Landry: Oh, we'll see about that. There is one thing I do know for sure. If we're going to Hell, then you're coming with us. You go ahead and burst into flames if you like.

Daniel: Oh God.
Doci: Your Gods cannot save you now, Daniel Jackson.
Daniel: Actually, that's just a statement of general dissatisfaction.

Vala: I mean, my mother used to say to me, "Vala, happiness isn't something you can buy." Or in my case, steal.

Colonel Ellis: What could possibly save us at this point?
Landry: I was hoping SG-1 might show up at some point.

Daniel: Which seven symbols?
Vala: Well, you don't expect me to remember.
Daniel: With the fate of two galaxies hanging in the balance, yes, I expect you to remember the essential clue given to you by an Ascended being!

Vala: You know, I'm starting to think that irony is very overrated.

Mitchell: It's kinda weird not having a big bad guy to fight anymore.
Sam: Yeah, that's what we felt when we defeated the Goa'uld. And the Replicators. The first time.
Mitchell: Well, Jackson and Vala took care of that.
Vala: That whole Ori thing was not our fault!
Daniel: Just take the blame. You get used to it.
