Guy #1


When Vala has a dinner with Daniel, she is kidnapped by the Trust, interrogated, and dumped with almost total amnesia, as waitress in a diner, where she does however demonstrate to have retained her fighting skills when a robber has the misfortune to come during her shift. Even after Daniel figures out which Goa'ulds on Earth -including Athena, and especially Ba'al- can be involved, it proves difficult to retrieve her. And when Mitchell does, she suspiciously takes him captured, badly wounded. Written by KGF Vissers

Sal: So, how was lunch?
Vala Mal Doran: Delicious.
Sal: Delicious enough to pay for?
Vala Mal Doran: Yes. If I had the money, I would certainly have paid for that meal and given the lovely waitress a sizable gratuity. The service was impeccable.
Sal: Look, lady, everybody's got problems. I got rent on this place, a mortgage, a wife, three kids, and a Shih Tzu with a recurring gastrointestinal condition that requires a very specialized diet. Alright?
Vala Mal Doran: I'm sorry for trying to cheat you.

Vala loses her memory.
12 September 2006 | by (Bucharest) – See all my reviews

The Trust kidnaps Vala and uses a Goa'uld device meant to recover some of her memories, but the device is destroyed in a bad moment and erases all her memory. There is a funny twist: she works as waitress (which seems to me to fit her perfectly - I think because of her attitude) for a couple of weeks until she singlehandedly stops two robbers. It's a classic theme (amnesia), but the script is pretty good and it works. The fans can't be disappointed as there are a few details that are adorable (Daniel takes Vala out, but refuses to call it a "date", Col. Mitchell is "kidnapped" by Vala,…). Besides these, I always find it refreshing to see the characters on Earth - in street clothes, trying to behave normally (and the actors trying to pretend they are pretending to be normal… hihihi) and the way the common people get entangled.
