Jack and the magnifying glass.
"Colonel.. you’re Colonel.. you’re the wormhole.. consultant.."
Literally one of my favourite things all wrapped up in string is a great cast cracking each other up for reasons the audience can’t understand, and the blooper reel is just them laughing at each other uncontrollably. (Especially when it’s Rick just sitting there like ‘what did I do’ while everyone else just loses it)

#I could probably write thousands of words of meta about this#Sam is reason and science and evidence#Jack is instinct and faith#so many times Jack believes in Sam because it’s the only option#and Sam leans on that belief in her to get shit done#without Jack’s faith in her she’d be paralyzed by the facts#over the years Sam learns to trust Jack’s instincts implicity#and his faith in her bolsters her so many times#and over the years Jack learns to trust Sam’s science#remember Red Sky?#Jack telling the idiot townspeople to trust them because they can do miracles#then when Daniel questions his choice of words#Jack says well whatever Carter comes up with’ll look like miracles to them#their working relationship is a virtuous cycle of Jack’s faith and Carter’s intuitive leaps#and this episode was the beginning of that cycle in many ways#all of SG1’s faith in each other for that matter#Daniel and Teal’c were back on Earth working on the problem at the same time#having faith that Sam and Jack would keep each other alive#together they work miracles#TEAM LOVE

#Amanda had to be TALKED DOWN OFF THE LEDGE about Affinity#Amanda needed a VERY COMPELLING ARGUMENT to be convinced that Sam should say yes to Pete’s propsal#(wish I knew what that argument was)#Amanda fought Sam kissing Pete at the stakeout TOOTH AND NAIL#Amanda DIDN’T THINK SAM WOULD SAY YES TO PETE#Amanda went along with Sam saying yes to Pete and kissing him because IT WAS HER JOB AND HER BOSSES TOLD HER SHE HAD TO#I mean I knew Amanda was one of us#I knew she shipped Sam and Jack as hard as if not harder than we did#I know Amanda is very smart#and that she protected her character’s integrity#and that she urged the Stargate writers to write characters who happened to be women#rather than the other way around#but y’all I’m a little verklempt#because reading between the lines and accounting for the This Is Going In A Publication filter#Amanda totally knew that Pete was a crappy guy to inflict on Sam#man I’d love to talk to her about that whole plotline someday#off the record and get the unfiltered version
