Sam Carter: What are you talking about?
Jonas: Well for instance, that man there right behind Teal'c, he doesn't realize it, but he just put eight cubes of sugar into his coffee, and that lady over at the counter, she's been reading the same article for a half an hour. Since we sat down, that waitress has dropped her tray twice, the cook has gotten three wrong orders *including* my hamburger, which I ordered medium rare, but is in fact well done. I've been noticing similar behavior all morning. It's like, uh, the entire town is half asleep.
