Whoa! Is this what you call 'closing the Gate after the horse is out'? *g*

Or in, perhaps. Or halfway.

Taking a carrot and stick approach to diplomacy?

Okay, so the ambassador's a little horse, and admittedly she's a neighsayer, but at least she doesn't have a frog in her throat. It must be admitted, however that she has a somewhat mulish glare.

Probably SG-9 will stress the importance of never looking the ambassador in the mouth, and the fact that although protocol insists that the ambassador be offered water, she must not be made to drink, and many other taboos.

The General will put up with all the various taboos and prohibitions for a while. He'll do his best for the cause of diplomacy, but eventually he will lose patience, and Col. Kovacek will nearly suffer a fatal heart attack when General O'Neill stops the ambassador's unbridled behavior by leaping from his chair in the briefing room onto the ambassador's back, and riding her around the SGC until it is firmly established that the General is the one who is in charge.

Then the General will offer a suitable number of bushels of carrots and apples per annum in return for the naquidah mining rights, and the ambassador, preferring this to the alternative of the stick (the General somehow managed to pick up one of the flags on its pole from its place by the door to his office and is still brandishing it about in a way that makes the ambassador quite nervous), and the deal will be sealed.

In spite of everything, and to the vast relief of Colonel Kovacek, it turns out that the ambassador really likes the Tau'ri, and mostly it is because he likes the General. She likes his corn-y sense of humor, and the way he greets her every time: "Oh, hey!"

Though the General is at least good enough at diplomacy not to say so, he is always enormously relieved when the ambassador and her party leave. That remark about him sewing wild oats that her aide made to him in passing keeps giving him night mares, and they aren't the kind he enjoys. He keeps thinking of the Star Trek episode with the women in the aluminum foil bikinis, and that frightening woman who seemed so taken with "Cheekuuuuuv!" Every time he thinks about that aide, with her lank mane, her spavined hooves, and her long, long teeth, he gets a shiver like an entire herd of horses just galloped over his grave!

The ambassador has other ideas. As she is leaving she looks over the General from head to toe, with special attention to his silvery mane.

"Hi-oh, Silver! Away!" She cries, and with that she rears up and then gallops up the ramp and into the worm hole. Here aides and assistants trot after at a more sedate pace.

There is a bit of a silence.

"That red saddle so makes her but look big," says the General. His mood is considerably brightened by getting this last off his chest. He's been refraining from saying it all week.

And Daniel said he was no diplomat!
