The first 2/3 of that episode is one of my absolute favorite episodes. Love it. Then it suddenly turns embarrassingly stupid, but I just stop watching and pretend the last third doesn't exist.

I kinda like when Janet starts taking her clothes off though...

And we're determined to write the VISIBLE BED routine.

Boxing Match Not Made In Heaven

Starting Out

Jack: Okay, so you want to use your hands to show your audience exactly where the sides of the b--

Daniel: Ummmm... Exactly why are we doing this?

Jack: [ +1,000,000 Stare of Exasperated Well Duhhhh] So you can learn the Invisible Box routine.

Daniel: Why?

Jack: [ +1,000,000,000 Stare of Exasperated Well Duhhhh] So you will know it!

Daniel: Why?

Jack: Why?!!!

Daniel: Yes, why?

Jack: Well how else are you going to learn it? Now you use your flattened hands to--

Daniel: But why?

Jack: [summoning every last bit of patience he used for Charlie when he was in the "Why?" stage, and doubling it because this is Daniel, who is eleven times the age Charlie was then, and resorting to the tactic of parents the multiverse over] BECAUSE! Now hands up, and-- No! No! No! FLAT hands! FLAT!

``````````````

Hour Two

Jack: No! Dammit! You just poked a hole right through the box with that left hand! Watch again!

``````````````

Hour Seven

Daniel: You mean like this?

Jack: Almost... almost... AAAAAAARGHH! What is it about hands on the SAME PLANE that you can't understand? I am speaking English, aren't I? No Ancient?

Daniel: Direntis non es.

Jack: [weary sigh] That's it, Daniel. I'm going wacko, nuts, bonkers, six players short of a hockey team. Go home and practice tonight, and we'll start again in the morning, Oh eight hundred, and if you want that frou-frou coffee you insist on, you're supplying it, otherwise you'll take commissary sludge.

Ten Hundred Thirteen, Daniel's Office

Sam: Hey, Daniel! I was just heading out when it occurred to me that I hadn't seen you all day? You been working on that translation all day?

Daniel: [looking up and taking a moment to run his auditory memory tapes through to find out what Sam just said while his mind was still on the parchment laid out before him] Oh... no. I've just been at this for a couple of hours. I spent most of the day yanking Jack's chain.

Sam: I guess that explains the three plates of cake and black coffee he was having for dinner. Have a fun day?

Daniel: Oh, yeah! Got a minute? I think I only have another five minutes or so on this translation, and I'll be ready to head out too. Make yourself comfortable on that chair... Just put the books on the floor underneath it, and I'll put the papers... here, and I'll walk on out with you.

Sam: No thanks. I know your five minutes. That's five minutes, plus fifteen reference searches for cognates in other obscure languages, and a few ancillary translations later! I'm tired, and I want to get home while I'm still awake enough to drive. See you tomorrow.

Daniel: [self-deprecatory smile] You may have a point. See you tomorrow. [quietly, almost under his breath, anticipating the next day's fun] ...and so will Jack!

getting all boxed in

*whoops of glee*

Yup. Clearly Daniel was just seeing how much innocent damage he could do to Jack -- or, rather, allow Jack to do to himself.

Re: getting all boxed in

Your tax dollars at work! ;) Not, mind you that I begrudge them the time at play given the risks they take.

I'm assuming that once he is back home and not in the throes of the struggle, and no longer being deliberately egged on by Daniel, that he will realize that Daniel actually shows no signs of being that maladroit in the field.

This will not bode well for Daniel, as Jack will have the evening and the drive in the next morning to get everything all planned and set up for his revenge...

It's Sam (and Teal'c, who will no doubt hear about things from Sam, if not from Daniel) who will get the most glee out of all this. Teal'c will arrange to use a microwave in the commissary "to obtain hot buttered expanded corn kernels", and Sam will do the technical work to get the security feed onto her laptop, and they'll spend the day keeping score.
