Stargate SG-1: Solitudes has always been memorable, but the truth is that what I think of first is the outtake from it in which Amanda Tapping as Sam reads Richard Dean Anderson’s Jack O’Neill the riot act for not being able to MacGyver their way to safety. It’s just a hoot, and if you haven’t seen it, look for it on YouTube.
Solitudes is a show I love to watch. It’s full of angst, and it’s one in which we see the caring of Daniel Jackson as well as his determination when it comes to saving his friends.
Basically, Daniel and Teal’c return to Stargate Command after a mission while Jack and Sam end up somewhere unknown. Daniel was hurt, as was Jack. Jack’s injury is more severe, and it’s pretty much up to Sam to try to get them to safety. Meanwhile, it’s up to Daniel to figure out what has happened to the other half of SG-1.
I absolutely love the scene when Daniel does figure it out. Listen for the scene that includes General Hammond and Teal’c when Daniel asks Teal’c what happens when you call your own phone number. It’s such a hoot.
There are some poignant bits, like Jack calling out for his wife, Sara, though they are estranged, and Daniel’s nighttime vigil as he stares at the Stargate. I love it all.
