Divide and Conquer
We begin with the opening scene of the planet they're on. It kinda looks like New Mexico. Sandy with rocks that look like stonehenge!
Jack, Marty, Tok'Ra Spice, Major Graham and Captain Blasdale are sitting at a table.
JACK: Tuesday doesn't work for the president.
MARTY:( : The high council of the Tok'Ra is making his first journey to earth to sign an official treaty that outlines our new alliance in the fight against the Goa'uld, what could possibly be more important than that?
GRAHAM: Keeping that treaty a secret from the general population of our planet.
JACK: It's a tricky proposition where we're from.
DANNY: The President means no disrespect, but he has to appear before Congress on Tuesday, and there's no way to make up an excuse to get out of that.
JACK:(signing) Wednesday? How's Wednesday?
TOK'RA HIGH COUNCIL GUY: Wednesday will be fine.
Martouf stands when hearing the THC guy's voice. Everyone else stands, and Marty walks toward the THC guy.
MARTY: Colonel O'Neill, Doctor Jackson, Major Graham , Captain Blasdale ...
Next shot is Graham with the Goa'uld thingy in his hand. Then back to Marty bowing to the THC guy.
MARTY: ... May I present Surpreme High Counciler Per'Sus?
Per'Sus: Please, forgive me for being late.
DANIEL: (bowing @ Per'Sus) It is an honor to meet you.
In back of Danny, you see Maj. Graham aim the Goa'Uld thingy @ Per'Sus.
JACK: LOOK OUT!!!!!!!!!
Graham shoots the red blast thru a Tok'Ra bodyguard, and hit Per' Sus in the chest, knocking him down. Captain Blasdale tries to get the thingy from Graham, and Graham blows a hole thru the Captain. Another Tok'Ra bodyguard tries to hit Graham with a ZAT gun, and gets shot as well. Then, he turns toward Tok'Ra Spice who is hiding behind the table. Jack sees this, and jumps on TS & brings her to the floor, bearly being missed by the blast. Daniel looks flabergasted. Graham's eyes are wide as he has the thingy pointed at the Colonel.
The Major has a look of angst on his face as his hand is shaking.
GRAHAM: (Crying) Stop ... Stop ... stop me!
Graham presses the Thingy, and a yellow light covers his body. Jack, Marty, and Danny hide there heads below their hands as you hear an explosion, then see black stuff flying. (I'm assuming it's Graham!) Jack & Danny pick their heads up with a confused look on their faces.
OPENING CREDITS ...
Jack and Danny watch as they take the bloody, dead bodies away on a gurney. Marty walks in.
MARTY: Fortunally, High Counceler Per'Sus is going to recover.
Sam walks in.
SAM: What happened?
JACK: I'd like to know that.
DANIEL: Well, the High Counceler came in, Martouf introduced us, and Graham went nuts.
SAM: And he pulled a weapon?
MARTY: It seemed to be of Goa'Uld origin.
JACK: Look, Martouf ---
MARTY: Obviously, I do not believe you were complicid with Major Graham's actions.
Jack nodds his head.
DANNY: We weren't, but just out of curiosity, how can you be sure we weren't?
MARTY: (Thinks a second) I cannot.
TOK'RA SPICE (TS from now on!) (Walks up): I can. Major Graham was a Zatarc.
JACK: (Raises eyebrows) A what?
TS: The victim of Goa'Uld mind-control technology.
DANIEL: (same raised eyebrow as Jack!): What?
TS: I believe a mission is programed into the victim's subconsious. That programing is covered with false memory.
JACK: You knew this threat was out there?
MARTY: Freya has presented her theories to the High Council, but it is only conjecture. The existance of this technology is thus far unconfirmed.
JACK: Now, you see, this is just the kind of irresponsible, uncooperative ---
TS: (cutting him off) : I agree, Colonel. Unfortunally, the High Council did not. Despite the fact that I documented three incidents within the last two months. Otherwise healthy Tok'Ra operatives suffered sudden extreme behavior episodes, each ending in suicide.
JACK: And no red flags went up for anyone?
MARTY: A weapon like this had not been used before.
SAM: So the person in question doesn't know what's going to happen?
TS: No, they're apparently unaware their minds had been tampered with. The instruction seems to be triggered by an audio or visual signal.
DANNY: Obviously, the High Councelor was the target.
TS: Apparently, when Major Graham was introduced to Per'sus, the programing took over. He would have been unable to control his actions after that.
SAM: But this is theoretical?
TS: It is difficult to prove becouse of lack of evidence. I believe violent self-destructive behavior is an integral part of the programing meant to ensure that result.
DANNY: How exactly does one get turned into a zatarc?
TS: The programing only seems to require moments of access to the victims.
JACK: Alright, Had we known any of this, we might have been able to take a few more precautions.
MARTY: We could not have taken any more precautionsthan we did, Colonel.
DANIEL: But we could have more of these preprogramed time bombs out there waiting to go off.
MARTY: It is likely that if the Goa'uld knew Major Graham was going to be here to meet the high councelor ...
SAM: ... then they know about the treaty summit.
MARTY: They're goal was undoubtably to sabatage our alliance.
DANNY: Then the president could also be a target.
MARTY: It is the high councelor's wish to continue with the treaty summit.
JACK: Oh! I don't think so!
MARTY: In 2000 years, the Tok'Ra have not bowed to Goa'Uld terrorism. We will not start now.
TS: Either way, it is true that any of your personelle who may have encountered the goa'uld in the last 2 months may have fallen victim.
MARTY: The problem is, Zatarc programming is vertually impossible to detect.
TS: That is not true.
Here's where Marty & TS sound like they're having a lover's quarrel! Jack looks like he's witnessing a tennis game! LOL!
MARTY: You're method is unproven.
TS: It worked on one occasion.
MARTY: Even that is in question.
TS: It is all we have right now.
JACK(interrupting) : Excuse me!? *long pause* Do we or do we not have a ZANAX (Yes! He said ZANAX, not Zatarc!) detector??
Cuts to a COOOLLLL shot of going thru the wormhole!
Martouf & TS walk thru carrying the Zatarc detector.
GENERAL HAMMOND (GH from now on!): Colonel. Martouf, Anise, on behalf of the SGC, I want to offer my sincerest appologies and condolences for the lives of the lost Tok'Ra.
The Snakeheads bow their heads.
MARTY: High councelor Per'Sus also send regrets for men of the SGC that were lost. We consider Maj. Graham as much a victim as anyone.
GH: All outstanding SG teams are being recalled for screening and placed on 24 hour watch.
TS: I would like to begin with the remaining members of Major Graham's team. There was obviously oppertunity to program him on a recent mission.
GH: (Pointing ) This Way. Major Carter?
Sam nods her head & follows them. Jack & Teal'C watch them go.
JACK: They're at it again.
Shot of Cheyenne Mountain. Then to GH & Janet walking down the hall.
Janet: (to GH) I completed my autopsy on Maj. Graham. There was an inidentifiable residue from the explosion, but no indication he was under any kind of chemical influence. To be honest, Sir, if the Goa'uld were trying to cover up their work, they did a good job.
GH: What about the infomation about the Zatarcs provided by the Tok'Ra?
JANET: Pretty limited to speculation, Sir. I did a full examination of Major Graham before he went to Vorash, and he seemed to be in perfect health. His bloodwork was clean, last psych evaluation was normal. If his brain was altered in any way, It was done by a tenhnology far beyond my understanding.
GH: This zatarc detector actually works?
JANET: It's alien technology. I have no way of knowing.
GH: So we're completely in the hands of the Tok'Ra?
JANET: Colonel must be happy about that.
GH: I'm not thrilled about it myself.
Next shot is TS at the Machine.
Lieutenent Astor walks in.
TS: Hello, Leutenent Astor. Please have a seat.
TS & an airman strap Astor to the chair.
TS: Try to stay calm. Direct your vision here.
TS puts a light that looks like a laser in Astor's eye. Looks like the laser scaned around her iris.
TS: I will ask you some questions and read your thoughts. Please answer as truthfully as possible.
OOPS! Looks like when I went check the door, my VCR taped over this part!!!!! AARRGGHHHHHH!!!!!! Anyway, Astor has a false memory of a fire fight with some Jaffa. The machine says she's lying.
OK! I've calmed down! I'm just glad it's not a shippy part!!!!
Alright, on with the show!
TS: She is a zatarc. Leutenant Astor's mind has been altered.
JACK: Ya think so?
GH: What do we do?
Shot to Marty looking @ TS.
TS: There is a procedure we could try.
GH: Is it safe?
TS: It's experimental at best.
JACK: General, need I remind you what happened the last time we trusted this ... woman?
TS: You are refering to my symbiote, Anise, Colonel, and I would not suggest this if I thought there was a better alternative.
GH: What's the worst case synerio??
MARTY: The procedure actually damages the portune of the brain that has been affected by the zatarc technology.
TS: Lt. Astor could lose more than just a false memory.
JACK: How much more?
TS: It won't be clear until after the procedure.
GH: I hate siting here deciding the fate of one of my officers, but what choice do we have?
JACK: General ...
GH: The security of this base and this planet can not be compromised.
TS: Furthermore, when her programming is triggered, she will ineviddably become someone self destructive.
Jack & GH share a look.
GH: Let's give Lt. Astor the choice.
JACK: Some choice.
Astor is being strapped to the chair ... again!
ASTOR: I have to admit, I'm a little scared. *A short pause* (tearfully with shaking voice) Actually that's not true ... I'm terrified!
TS: I understand. Please try to stay calm.
ASTOR: I swear I shot that Jaffa! Maj. Graham returned with Captain Blasdale and Sergent Lewis.
TS: You said you were surrounded. The Jaffa were everywhere. 6 other SGC team members died that night, yet you and your team members managed to get thru unharmed.
ASTOR: I thought we were just that good.
Shot goes to Jack looking down.
TS: I am going to begin.
TS puts a light on Astor's head.
ASTOR: (Painfully) It Hurts! Please ... STOP!!!!!!! PLEASE!!!!!?!?!?!?!? ... STOP!!!!!!!!
MARTY: Stop the procedure!
When TS stops the procedure, Astor unrestrains herself, grunting, she knocks down a couple of airmen grabs one of their guns, and shoots it thru the observation window.
JACK: (At door) ASTOR!!!!??!?!
TS: NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! As Astor turns the gun toward herself and blows her brains out.
GH: (Into red phone) Thank you , Doctor. Both SF's suffered serious injuries, but they're gonna be OK.
TS: The Goa'uld programming must have a failsafe that prevents it from being tampered with. I am sorry you have lost another member of your team. I hold myself accountable.
GH: The Goa'uld are altemately accountable.
TS: Unfortunally, we can not annalize the affected area of the victim's brain post-mortum due to the self inflicted damage.
JACK : Does that really make a difference?
TS: I belive it does. Yes.
GH: There will be no summit unless I can be sure the president isn't in danger.
TS: We can complete the Zatarc testing in time.
JACK: And if we find more?
GH: Greater things than the summit could be in jeaparty, Colonel. Proceed.
JACK: Well this is fun! Whose next?
JACK : Do'h!
Next shot, Janet & Marty are looking up at the lie detector monitors in the observation room.
TS: Good, Colonel. Now lets move to your mission on PX9-997.
JACK: Drawin' a blank.
TS: Your mission was to destroy a new ship being built by Apophis.
JACK: You know all about that.
TS: The device only works if you recapture your exact memories.
DANNY: At that piont we realized they wouldn't come off.
TS: You can jump ahead to the part where you went thru the gate.
SAM: We were so strong and fast, the Jaffa on the other side didn't stand a chance.
Cool shot of the 3 going thru the gate at superman speed, knocking down all the jaffa guarding the gate.
TEAL'C: General Hammond ordered me to follow. I went thru the gate a few minutes after the rest.
TS: So you were alone a short time before meeting up with the rest of SG-1?
DANNY: Um ... I went after the naquada.
Shot to Danny knocking down the Jaffa carrying the naquada. He's picking it up.
JAFFA: Don't move!
Danny throws a block of naquada at the Jaffa, knocking him down! LOL!
TS: After that?
DANNY: I headed back to meet Jack & Sam.
JACK: When I realized Carter wasn't with me, I stopped.
Shows Jack running thru Forse shield. Sam hits the shield and falls down. Jack turns.
JACK: I went back for her.
TS: What happened next?
JACK: That's when your genius armbands fell off.
Slowmotion scene of Jack running. He sees her, but hits the forse shield.
TS: You couldn't get thru the shield?
SAM: When I woke up, I saw colonel O'Neill uncontious on the floor on the other side of the FS. I called his name, and he woke up.
TS: Then what?
SAM: I realized there was no way I was gonna get thru that forse shield. I told the Colonel to try to get out without me.
TS: To leave you behind?
SAM: Yes. The timer on the C-4 was counting down. I knew that without the advantage of the armbands, it was gonna be tight getting back to the stargate before the ship's power core exploaded.
TS: What did Colonel O'Neill do?
Shot of Jack banging the control panel.
SAM: Sir, there's no time.
Jack & Sam look down the hall at the advancing Jaffa.
JACK: Couple of Jaffa came around the corner.
TS: And then? ...
SAM: We got lucky.
TS: That's it?
SAM: Yeah. The C-4 explosion must have taken out the generator.
Cool explosion shot here!
SAM: See that? The FS disappeared, and ... we ran.
TS: Sounds easy.
SAM: Well ... I wouldn't say that.
TS: Are you sure you're telling me everything?
Sam nods her head. * a few seconds later* OH! ... Uh ... I tried to go for the naquada.
Sam's trying to pick up the naquada.
JACK: Carter, forget that. Leave it!
SAM: But Colonel O'Neill ordered me to leave it.
TS: That's everything?
SAM: *After seconds of thinking* Yeah. *TS looks down @ machine* You're not serious?
Machine shows that they are lying.
Jack does an adorable scope around the room. Marty & GH look @ each other, and Janet just shakes her head. He looks confused.
GH: (In the red phone) We still don't know any of the parties involved. In the event we do proceed, I'm sending a new plan for your arrival. *Pause* Yes, Sir ... both Colonel O'Neill & Major Carter. *pause* I'll pass that along. Thank you, Mr. President. (He hangs up the phone with a VERY worried look on his face!)
Jack walks in Sam's room.
JACK: (to guard) Give us a second, huh?
SAM: Sir, this has to be a mistake.
JACK: Tell me about it.
SAM: Can you talk to GH about getting me retested, I mean I'm ...
JACK: (interrupting) Us. (Smiles)
JACK: Us retested. *Here, Sam closes her eyes, you know the look!* Apparently, I'm one of those zarc-thingy's too. (yes! he said Zarc-thingy's ) LOL! I'm across the hall.
SAM: That can't be.
JACK: I know.
SAM: Although we were both unconsious at the same time.
SAM: Sir, are you worried that its at least possible?
JACK: A little.
Next scene is in the briefing room. Teal'C, GH, TS, Marty , Janet, And Danny, are at the table.
TEAL'C: I do not believe that Col. O'Neill & Maj. Carter are Zatarcs.
DANNY: We can't prove they aren't.
MARTY: We must continue to keep them isolated in order to prevent them from being exposed to their programing triggers.
GH: We don't know that the president is the intended target.
GH: Then we're talking about keeping them confined indefinately.
JANET: At least until we can come up with another course of action.
TS: The good news id we have found no more zatarcs among SGC personnel. The HC & his advisers have also been tested back on Vorash. There should be no danger to the summit meeting.
GH: I want good news regarding Col. O'Neill & Maj. Carter. (Rising)
JANET: We'll keep working on it, Sir.
MARTY: What shall I tell the HC reguarding the meeting with the president?
GH: It's on.
Jack's in his room playing with a yo-yo. He has his feet on the desk. Knock on door.
The slut walks in! (TS)
JACK: Oh. You.
TS: You are probrably not happy to see me. < DUH?!?!?!?!>
JACK: Well, if you're not here to tell me it's all a big mistake, I might be a little glum.
TS: I came to appologize. It is sort of our fault you are a Zatarc ... maybe a little more Anise than me.
JACK: I knew that. I just don't know why yet.
TS: The experiment with the armbands was the reason you went to destroy Apophis's ship.
JACK: Hey, listen. What if you're wrong about Carter and me Zatarcs?
TS: I don't believe that's possible.
She looks at him stares, even.
JACK: Is there something else?
TS: I have not thanked you for saving my life both times.
JACK: No offence. but I would have done it for anyone.
She kisses him. He drops his feet. His hands are on his lap, then he picks them up, to push her away. His kiss is closed mouth, not like AU Sam in POV, where he puts his hand on her shoulder, and gives her a slightly open mouthed kiss.
JACK: Uh ... What ya doin'? (Confused look)
TS: I originally came from a planet where the people were not afraid to show their effection for someone. When we wanted to Lo'Machen ...
JACK: Excuse me?
TS: I believe you call it ...
JACK: ... Something else.
TS: Anise, my symbiote, is far more interested in Doctor Jackson on an intelectual level, but she would have to suffer.
JACK: Look, there's so many reasons why this is wrong. Weird ... Wrong ... Did I mention wrong?
TS: Is it becouse I share my body with Anise?
JACK: For starters.
TS: Then you do not find me attractive?
JACK: Oh ... You're ... The slut kisses him again. She gets no responce again. Hey ... I could blow here any minute.
TS: If I was the target, your Zatarc programming would have triggered long ago.
JACK: Good point.
TS: Is there someone else to whom you are loyal?
JACK: (Doing some major league studdering!) Th ... Th ... Th ... That's not really the point here, is it?
TS: I sence you have been made unconfortable by my offer.
JACK: No! No ... it's just ... *thinks* Well, yeah!
TS: I had heard that the humans of earth had many inhabitions and stigmas concering intamacy.
JACK: Yes, Yes, I've heard that too. There's also the matter of timing.
TS: I am hopeful we can help both you and Maj. Carter.
JACK: Then maybe you should be out doing that, don't ya think?
TS: Once again I find myself feeling the need to appologize.
JACK: (Escorting her out) OH! No need! We're adults.
TS: I will learn more about your customs so I will not make you unconfortable again.
JACK: Good idea. Bye!
Danny & Marty discuss the wording of the treaty. Boring! Not shippy. TS walks in and says something along the lines of if they keep the 2 confined they will be endangeing them. They will not be able to do what they're programmed to do, and become self destructive.
We skip to Sam and Marty's conversation. She's writting a letter to Daddy. Marty says he sent word to Jacob to come. Marty suggests doing the procedure that was done on Astor. Marty said it failed becouse it was stopped before it was finished. Marty tells her he not only wants to not loose Jolinar, but he's grown quite fond of her as well. She smiles.
Goes to Danny & Jack. Danny's explaining the procedure to Jack.
JACK: What's Carter say?
DANNY: I don't know, Martouf is explaining it to her.
JACK: What would you do?
DANNY: I honestly don't know.
JACK: She made a pass at me.
DANNY: (Cute confused look!) Sam?!?!?
JACK: Anise, Freya, one of them.
JACK: The host half.
DANNY: Uh ... that's odd.
JACK: You're telling me. Odd timeing too, don't ya think?
DANNY: (Raised eyebrow) Yes.
JACK: Apparently, the snake likes you.
DANNY: Really? You know, I think these are the Jack O'Neill moments I'll probrably miss the most.
They look at each other and both say "What?"
Janet's telling everyone she plans to sedate Jack & Sam for the duration of the president's stay.
Janet's wheeling the IV thing into Jack's room.
JANET: It's the only way to be absolutely sure you won't hurt yourself.
JACK: No Choice?
JANET: NO. It'll be like falling asleep.
JACK: For how long?
JANET: As long as it takes to find a treatment with better odds than the one we have available. (She gives TS a dirty look)
Teal'C walks in.
JACK: Come to say your goodbyes?
TEAL'C: If there's anything that you require?
JACK: Another option.
TS: There is still time to try the procedure.
JACK: You said if you could have done a proper autopsy on Astor, you might have been able to solve this thing.
TS: It would have provided much more information.
JACK: I'll do it.
JACK: Hey, I've done the drugged out-straped to the bed thing.
DANNY: What if what happened to Astor happens to you?
JACK: Maybe it'll help Carter. Her brain's worth a lot more than mine.
Sam: What??!? He can't!
DANNY: He's on his way down now.
SAM: Why is he doing this?
DANNY: He said he'd rather take the risk instead of being put to sleep indefinately.
SAM: But, Astor ...
JANET: He said we can use what we learn to save you.
DANNY: (As Sam's running toward the door) Sam ...
SAM: (being stoped by MP's) Colonel ...
Jack looks back at her.
SAM: You have to stop him!
JANET: Sam, please. I have to do this.
Sam closes her eyes.
The THC are comming thru the gate. GH , Marty & Danny greet them.
Janet's preparing to sedate Sam.
SAM: Janet ... (She closes her eyes again)
Jack is being strapped to the chair. Teal'C stands beside him with the ZAT gun pointed at him.
The THC guys complinents Danny on the treaty. Danny's not listening. His mind is somewhere else.
Back to Sam ...
SAM: Colonel ...
She sees him walking in the hall again. Then she see him beating the control panel on Apophis's ship.
SAM: Sir, there's no time!
JANET: We may have to increase the dose.
SAM: The C-4's gonna blow, you have to get out of her.
Sam wakes up.
SAM: The machine was wrong! You don't understand. We lied. We didn't even know we were lying. Please?
TS: If you are ready, we will begin.
JANET: (Knocking on window, thru mike) STOP!
JACK: Carter, what's up?
SAM: Could we have a moment alone please? Thanks.
JACK: Carter, undo this. What's going on?
SAM: We're not Zatarcs.
JACK: How do you know?
SAM: The machine thinks we have false memories, but we were lying.
JACK: I wasn't lying.
SAM: OK. You left something out.
JACK: No, I didn't.
SAM: Sir, when you wouldn't leave me, are you sure there wasn't something else that you're not admitting?
JACK: What are you talking about?
SAM: Something neither one of us can admit given our working relationship, our military ranks ...
JACK : OH!!!! ... *quieter* Oh, that.
SAM: Sir, we weren't telling the whole truth, and that's why the machine said we were lying.
SAM: Retest him.
Shot of Presidential enterage arriving.
TS: Major Carter was trapped behind the FS.
Flashback to Jack hitting the Control panel. Trying to pull it apart.
SAM: Sir, there's no time!
Jack gets up, and looks behind Sam, she looks at him.
JACK: There were sounds.
TS: You did everything you could.
TS: You couldn't save her?
TS: But you still could have saved yourself.
JACK: I guess.
FB to Jack beating the FS.
SAM: Sir ...
JACK: I know! I know!
TS: What happened next?
FB to Jack beating the CP.
SAM: Sir! Just go!
JACK: (Standing up) NO!!!!!!!!!!!!
He stares into her eyes. She has like a pleading look in her eyes. Back to him staring in her eyes. She cocks her head to the side with the pleading look. He now has a confused look on his face. You can hear Jaffa-steps in the background. Jaffa appears.
TS: What were you feeling?
JACK: Like ... someone who was about to die.
Detector shows signs of lying!!!!
SAM: Sir ... She looks him in the eyes.
FB to the face to face with the FS between them. They're just looking in each other's eyes. She has the pleading look.
JACK: I didn't leave ... becouse I'd have rather died myself ... than loose Carter.
Sam looks him in the eyes, then does her closed eyes thing.
JACK: Becouse I care about her ... (serious eye contact here!) Alot more than I'm supposed to. (More eye contact)
TS: You are not a zatarc.
SAM: Now, retest me.
TS: You are also not a zatarc.
SAM: Thank you.
Jack goes unfasten Sam.
JACK: Carter ...
SAM: Sir ... None of this has to leave this room.
JACK: (Confused & kinda disappointed look) We're OK with that?
SAM: Yes, Sir.
He looks her up and down ... kinda like for Out of Mind ... and nods his head.
Here's where they try to figure out who could be a zatarc.
Marty ends up being it, and tries to kill the president, and gets shot up. He get ZATed by Teal'C. Sam walks in .
MARTY: Samantha ...
She shoots him. He's dead. :-((
TS: I promise you, his death will ultimately be a noble sacrafice.
Sam's holding Marty on the floor as the show ends ...
