"Thanks to denial, I'm immortal."
"A big 'Hello' to all intelligent life out there, and for everyone else, the secret is to bang the rocks together, guys!"
"Excuse me, barmaid? You seem to have brought me the wrong offspring. I ordered an extra large boy with beefy arms, extra guts and glory on the side. This here, this is a talking fishbone!"
"I'm Jack. It means... what's in the box?"

Yay! More Maybourne. Always scheming away, working a few angles. I had just as much fun on a Rewatch as the first time - although it lacked the "Oh no, its Maybourne again" feeling of the first time I saw it
The interplay with Jack and Maybourne was so well done - the timing and delivery is perfect. Classic!
Finally! An episode that actually goes off world and features the team. The fact that they did actually wind up using Jack in this episode leads me to believe that the writers were afraid to make an SG1 without O'Neill and is why I really dislike this season. Because of the Jack crutch we never really saw SG-1 in S8. As for the episode itself I like it. Unlike Paradise Lost I really like the Jack and Maybourne interaction. They really do work well off another. I especially like Jack's reaction at the end of the episode to the discovery that Maybourne has wives. The whole Ancient ship's impact is kind of diminished if you haven't seen Atlantis. The whole mystery of the ship and how the Ancients mastered timeline is clueless if you haven't seen the other show but its still easily followed if you haven't seen the show. I love Wayne Brady so I loved seeing him interact in the show even if its radically different from roles he has done in the past.
Another ep of SG1...
1. Well this was the first appearance of a Puddle Jumper in SG1 and it was a bit of a laugh seeing our old crew struggling to deal with something that was the bread and butter of the newer show.
2. Wasn't the ditty meant to be the McGuyvver themetune or something?
3. Maybourne creating a legal system!
4. "You are a man of your word" "Indeed".
An improvement on the last ep.
Enjoyed seeing Maybourne again. And the puddle jumper. It was a good episode.
I wonder.. If S11 had been given the ok would we have gone back here to read that plinth?
"God , im miss going offworld!"
Dnt know if it was the exact quote of O'neil but it was good to see him go offworld.
You would think a ship with a time travel device in it would be better hidden. Or maybe the ancient left it out so it would be easy to find because he seen he did that in the future. Uh oh brain melting.
Good episode. Starsky and Hutch ride again.
So I'm watching this episode and wondering, if the time machine was still there for sg1 to find, where was or is the time travelling ancient who was piloting it?
Never Leave A Man Behind...or a Jaffa for that matter
I think he left it there for them to find. Hmmm but how did he get home then. Good question.
Perhaps he didn't. Maybe he stayed to write the monolith that 'foretold' of sg1.
Figures that Maybourne would land on his feet.
Nice to see him again in this episode
no means no, and so does pepper spraySig by The Carpenter
Maybourne! It's always a good time when he's involved. He was the only character who made "Desperate Measures" bearable for me.
What a fun ep. I was very happy to see SG-1 in a puddle jumper, as I don't remember that happening at all in this show. Then again, I first watched SGA after finishing SG-1, so, as someone has mentioned above, it probably had little impact on me.
I'd like to see Maybourne again in the future, but I can't remember if he ever shows up again. This seemed like his final send-off, but, then again, so did his last episode.
Again, what a strange season. I feel as though I only like every other episode at most, and I'm really missing Jack now. I don't know why I assumed he was still going to be part of the team until the cast changes in season nine. Probably because he's still front and center on the DVD box. *sigh*
Funny ep - Maybourne, the king and O'Neill, the General. Together funny as always. A little fight, some hurly-burly - good.
My favorite episode!
Loved this episode. It's great to see Maybourne again, and Jack joining the old team.
Knowing that Wayne Brady is supposed to be the bad guy, and actually seeing him as the bad guy didn't quite mesh for me. I have just seen too many episodes of "Whose Line Is It Anyway?", and I kept wanting him to break out in song.
its a time ship whos builder traveled forward and for all we know was there at the time jack launched the missiles and rigged the hatack to blow up from wihtin it etc
