The quantum mirror Daniel found in "There But for the Grace of God" brings to Area 51 an alternate Kawalsky and Dr. Carter from another reality, this time one where Sam never joined the military but became Jack's wife and the Goa'uld just overran earth. Dr. Carter begins suffering from temporal entropic cascade failure, a paradoxical effect of having two versions of the same person in the same reality and realises that she must return to her own reality or both Sams will eventually perish. SG-1 embark to the alternate reality to intercede and prevent the Goa'uld from conquering Earth before our General Hammond has the mirror disabled. The alternative Teal'c remained Apophis's loyal first prime, so the 'real' one can assume his identity to infiltrate the invading force but they are discovered and captured, but this only serves as the ideal diversion while the Sams also contact the alternate Asgard...

Colonel Jack O'Neill's Catch Frase
28 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When alternate Sam is being interrogated after teleporting to area 51 from an alternate reality, she says, "Oh, for crying out loud". This is a catch phrase coined by 'Colonel Jack O'Neill' (qv) early in the series.

Having characters that are close to O'Neil say this line seems to be a common theme with the writers. They also did this in season 2, episode 20, "Show and Tell" when a boy shows up genetically engineered by the Re-Tu. The boy is not feeling well but people keep stopping in his room. When O'Neil is in the room more people come in, he says "For crying out loud".
