Guess it's why they call it the blues
Jack: [restrained patience] Yes, Daniel.
Daniel: We've been looking for this thing for six hours now...
Jack: And, so, but, therefore...
Daniel: So what are we going to do with this blue box when we find it?
Jack: [impatient with Daniel's unaccustomed slowness] We make calls.
Daniel: [puzzled] Calls?
Sam: [somewhat reluctantly] Uh... sir, you know that a blue box of that sort isn't usually blue, right?
Sam: Sir, what is your intended use of this blue box?
Jack: [assuming what he is about to say is self-evident] Save the SGC on long distance!
Daniel: [incredulous] Long distance?
Sam: Sir, you realize that opening up the gate is by its very nature long distance, and having a blue box can't change that...
Teal'c: [entirely internal facepalm] If such a device were effective for gate travel, O'Neill, I have no doubt that the Goa'uld would already employ this technology.
Jack: [determinedly insouciant] Okay, well then, dial it up, Daniel. We're goin' home.
[a general, if fond, headshaking occurs behind his back. Sam sends the GDO signal, and they all step through]
Just before he steps through the gate, last to leave:
Jack: [regretfully] Too bad. It would have been so cool!
