    canadians do the nasaly long ooooo on things. like vancoooovvveerr

    americans do can-cuver

    you can hear AT's canadian when she goes 'helloooo' she gets that slightly nasal thing going
    Having grown up in S. W. Ontario as Amanda did, I have to say that her saying "helloooo" is just a joke, we don't really say it like that and it makes me laugh when I hear it. Just think of Peter Jennings, now he spoke with the true Canadian accent

      One of the reasons she's our Queen, right?

          I notice she says pro-cess, not prah cess for "process"--maybe prah-cess is midwestern US?
          Edit: oops--should have read all the way through--this one has been covered. At least she doesn't say "been" --such as "I have been looking for you" like kidney "bean" like Weir/TH does.
          I did notice in Changeling she pronounces the H in herbal tea. I was always taught the h is silent in that case, but I think Brits & Canadians must pronounce it.

          For real Canadian sounding people, IMHO, listen to the guys in "Beneath the Surface" who are yelling something about getting out of there after Teal'c collapses and the pressure's about to blow on the machine.

              In Booty Call (the things I'll sit through for Amanda ), she says "peds" (like it rhymes with the shoe, Keds) instead of "peeds". I assumed that was her Canadian influence. Though I wonder why the director didn't correct her?

                When I've heard Sam or Daniel call "hellooo" it always seemed in a joking way. Doesn't she do that to Daniel when he seems to be daydreaming while she's talking to him in "orpheus?"

                  She does but believe me its a joke, we don't say "hellooo" and we do say "peeds",
                  Maybe the "helloooo" is her British influence

                    Well when it comes down to it, I don't care how she pronounces stuff. I'd listen to her read the phone book.

                    Oh, and can I just say that blasted Poltergeist ad that continually pops up is driving me bonkers?!

                      is this a real cartoon cap, or did a fan make this up?

                        i wonder what amanda thinks of all the sam/other ship this season?

                        i feel they've made so many mistakes with sam this season that i almost don't know where to begin... i had such high hopes.

                          The first time I saw "The Changeling" I thought it was so strange to hear CJ talk normally instead of with Teal'c mannerisms.
                          Does anybody know which of the fireman was played by her husband?

                            i want to see it, and i'm not ashamed to admit that. i know the writers have trouble writing the simplist of scenes, but 9 years is a loooooooong time to wait for the pay off. so if marriage is the pay off, i'd prefer to *see* it. but... if i had to choose between having it happen but off screen vrs having it not happen because they don't want to show it, i'll choose the former.

                            i loved the way the romance scenes between sam and pete were written in the first half of chimera (even though my heart broke to the tenth degree), and that's what i want for sam and jack. yeah, *romance*.

                              You know I've always liked Sam/Barrett more than I ever liked Sam/Pete. I just thought they had some sort of chemistry.

                                He was one of the fireman (or maybe the only one) that slid down the pole and then ran toward the camera. You only get a glimps of him as he runs past.
