517 - Fail Safe

O'Neill:   Ahh... here we go...
Carter:   I'm sorry, sir.
O'Neill:   Ah, come on... We came. We saw. We planted the bomb. We had a little fun with a meteor shower. We went home. It's a great story... Isn't it?

O'Neill:   So... what happens when that bomb goes off?
Carter:   Well... the explosion will be enhanced by the naquahdah, probably to the force of a small nova. This close to Earth, it would be enough to set the atmosphere on fire and boil the oceans.
O'Neill:   OK... This was not in the movie.

Teal'c:   The bomb has yet to be deactivated.
O'Neill:   I can see that, Teal'c.

O'Neill:   You know... I'd like to take this opportunity to say... that this is a very poorly designed bomb and I think we should say something to someboby when we get back.

Carter:   The effect only has to last a few seconds.
O'Neill:   What... only has to last a few seconds? What?
Carter:   Choice three, sir. We expand the ship's hyperspace field to encompass the whole asteroid. We take it out of normal space long enough to avoid the collison with Earth.
O'Neill:   ...Is there a four?
Carter:   I know it sounds farfetched, sir... ahem... Well, it is.
O'Neill:   You want to ride an asteroid... through Earth...

Carter:   I really need more time to make the calculations.
O'Neill:   Well, Carter... now might be a good time.

Carter:   If I engage too soon, we'll emerge right inside Earth.
O'Neill:   Carter... I can see my house.
