    Sorry, all jesting aside, I don't know the answer to this one.

    Very interesting episode, I enjoyed it.

    There were a few thoughts I had about this episode.

    1. Jack is one of my favorite characters, but it made me realize that he is not a character actor, his old man I agree was pretty funny, but I don't think it was supposed to be, at least not in the way that I found it funny, it kind of took me out of the show a bit.

    2. I thought the transmitter being in the fallen horse was coincedental for two reasons. One, the townspeople I thought gave up their god too easily - if they have never even left the compound, why would they suddenly destroy their god's statue simply because an alien tells them otherwise? Second, the transmitter in the statue, I suppose that it is clever to put it in a place that they dare not destroy, but still, it is too convienent, more likely it would have been placed underground.

    I also thought it was out of character for Jack to run off and have a one night stand in front of full view of his friends. It was at first implied that he had been drugged, but it was a marriage cake and the nanites caused sleep, so that means that the cake had nothing to do with it, right?

    I enjoyed the episode, just a few things like that, it was an early episode too, but still, he has a crush on Carter for 7 seasons but doesn't mind running off with a girl who gives him cake?

    it is possible that the cake also had something in it that would dug him to do that so i don't know as for the rest i kind of agree to but i never thought of it like that

    He was acting rather strange immediately after eating the cake, and practically ignoring his team. I am going to assume that the cake had something in it, though unrelated to the aging thing. I think that makes the most sense.

    However, putting something like that in a marriage cake seems unlikely, though certainly more possible than him going off with her after talking with her for about fifty seconds.

    I don't mean to 'diss' the episode, I enjoyed it, I just thought that bit was odd.

    the marriage cake did drug him, when he woke up he was like err what just happened. like he didn't remember anything, which to me sounds like being drugged.

    Yeah, I think the cake was drugged as well, though I did have an issue with Jack's team letting him go off with this woman.

    i agree they should have stopped him but i guess they had other things they had to do or they thought he could look after himself they may have been following orders

    Although it is often perceived as such in fandom, I don't think Jack 'ran off" to have a one night stand. He was drugged. I actually don't think he should have eaten the cake in the first place, but that was Daniel's screw-up - as a resident anthroplogist he should have mentioned a possibility of marriage etc. Anyway, I think it was obvious that there was something in the cake. immidiately after eating it Jack started to laugh, then he let local women drag him away from his team with that "Hi girls", then when Kynthia danced the whole background kind of got blurry and disappeared and when he woke up in the morning he didn't know where he was or why. That screams drugs to me.

    And at the time he didn't have any feelings for Sam. It was an early season 1, he was still in love with his ex-wife, he was even writing a letter to her..

    This episode shows how much the goauld don't care about us. to shorten the lives of humans dramatically for an experiment is a truelly low act indeed. Seeing Jack as an old man was a bit of a shock. It was a nice ep to watch.
    Some say that he has only one ear.
    And that he solved the Da Vinci Code in 3 minutes.
    All we know is he's called

    A very good episode. Jack's aging was excellent. His voice, posture and movement changed and the make-up department even remembered to do his hands, something that's often forgotten. The team's reactions when he ordered them to leave him were good, too. Sam briefly looked like she was trying not to cry.

    This episode is also notable for our first look at nanotechnology on this series.

    It's too bad that we didn't see this form of aging in another use by the Goa'uld. Like an example of an "honourable" execution, or some other form.

    its one of my favorites of season one! Team Episodes! Like ONeill in this one and Daniel was quite funny also. What I really like was Hammonds Argument bout his decision.

    Yeah, Jack was absolutely fabulous in this one. He may not be a character actor, but IMO he pulled it off convincingly. The stiff walk, shaking hands and wavering voice were perfect.
