JACKSON: \"Sounds like him...at least the loud, grating parts.\"
YOUNG O'NEILL: \"Okay...you want proof? Carter, you once carried a Tok'ra na=

Young O'Neill and Teal'c stare at each other for several seconds. Then Teal=

TEAL'C: \"How could this child possess such knowledge?\"
Sam shakes her head to say \"no clue\". Daniel frowns for the same reason.

CARTER: \"Well, Sir...it could be him.\"
JACKSON: \"There is a physical resemblance.\"
HAMMOND: \"But he can't be more than 15 years old. Are you saying Colonel O=

Teal'c, Sam, Daniel and Young O'Neill enter through the front door. Teal'c =

Teal'c, who has been looking through the refrigerator, pipes up.
TEAL'C: \"Are you conducting some sort of scientific experiment, O'Neill?\"
YOUNG O'NEILL: \"Hey, come on, that salsa's still good.\"
He heads into the kitchen and takes a container from Teal'c. He puts the co=

he is tipping it to his mouth, Sam reaches out and takes the bottle away.

YOUNG O'NEILL: \"Hey! Do you mind?\"
Daniel puts his hands up in concession and walks away. Young O'Neill follow=
and then veers off toward Teal'c, who is looking at something on shelves.
YOUNG O'NEILL: \"Teal'c...\"
Suddenly, Teal'c turns on a lamp, which shines right in O'Neill's face. We=
see a flash
of light, some green dots floating around and then an Asgard face come into=
picture. Young O'Neill has just had a flashback.
YOUNG O'NEILL: \"Whoa...\"
Teal'c turns his head slightly toward Young O'Neill. Daniel also diverts hi=

Scene: A wooded area.
We see a river and Young O'Neill sitting on a large boulder on the river's =
edge. He is
holding a fishing pole. The rest of SG-1 and two guards start down the bank=

Scene: Jack's Bedroom
Young O'Neill is lying on the bed, reading a magazine. He picks up a radio =
that is on
the bed side table.
YOUNG O'NEILL: (into the radio) \"Carter, you still got your ears on?\"
CARTER: (who is standing a ways outside the house, but still in visual rang=

\"Everything appears to be normal, O'Neill.\"
YOUNG O'NEILL: (over the radio): \"Yeah? Not to me.\"
CARTER: \"You wanna go over the instructions I gave you again?\"
YOUNG O'NEILL: \"Don't worry, Carter, I'm sure I'll figure it out...\" Just t=
hen an Asgard
beam takes him off the bed.
We see Sam outside still listening on the radio. She sees a flash of light =
bedroom window. She starts running toward the house. We see Jack lying face=
on the bed as Sam, Teal'c and Daniel enter the bedroom. Sam rushes to check=
CARTER: (shaking his shoulder lightly) \"Colonel, you all right?\"
No movement from Jack.
JACKSON: \"Jack! Jack!\"
Still no movement.
O'NEILL: (taking a moment to wake up) \"What are you all doing in my bedroom=
We see what appears to be an Asgard ship in orbit. Then we see Young O'Neil=
floating in the same room we saw during the flashbacks with the other abduc=
Young O'Neill takes the zat out from under the magazine. An Asgard comes in=
ASGARD: \"Hello, do not be afraid.\"
Young O'Neill zats the Asgard. The Asgard falls. Then Young O'Neill zats th=
directly over head. The object turns dark and he immediately drops to the g=
appears to be knocked out.
Meanwhile, back in Jack's bedroom, Jack is now sitting on the edge of his b=
rubbing his eyes. He stands up.
O'NEILL: \"I assume this is...important?\"
CARTER: \"Just a little, Sir.\"
Back on the ship, we now see the Asgard strapped to his chair. Young O'Neil=
walking to one of the control panels.
YOUNG O'NEILL: \"Okay...\" (he looks at the panel) \"...wrong console.\"
He walks to another nearby console.
YOUNG O'NEILL: (he blows out a breath) \"Far right jewel thingy...up.\" (He p=
icks up one
of the Asgard controllers and puts it on other spot on the console. He wait=
nothing happens) \"...ah, and 3:00\" (He rotates the controller)
Back in the bedroom:
O'NEILL: \"Yeah, I was having the weirdest dream...\"
Then we see all four of them beamed out of Jack's bedroom and onto the ship=
YOUNG O'NEILL: \"There, you see, Carter? Told you it was no problem.\"
Young O'Neill walks up and stands in front of Jack. They are checking each =
Young O'Neill is still holding the zat. They are dressed exactly alike.
O'NEILL: (looks at his teammates) \"What's goin' on?\"
They all look away.
YOUNG O'NEILL: \"Wow, uh, you know, I'm really much taller than I think.\"
CARTER: \"Colonel O'Neill, meet...Colonel O'Neill.\"
Jack looks at Young O'Neill again...and then back at Carter.
O'NEILL: \"What's goin' on?\"
JACKSON: \"We're pretty sure this...Asgard over here...\" (points in the dire=
ction of the
subdued Asgard) \"...kidnapped you and attempted to replace you with a clone=

Just then, the Asgard stirs.
TEAL'C: \"He is awakened.\"
Daniel and Sam walk toward the Asgard. Young O'Neill looks toward the Asgar=
is still looking Young O'Neill over.
ASGARD: \"What's happening?\"
CARTER: \"We were kind of hoping you could tell us.\"
ASGARD: \"No, no, no...this is all wrong.\"
O'NEILL: \"Hey!\" (Jack walks over to stand beside Carter at the Asgard's sid=
e) \"I'll tell
you what's wrong. I just woke up, haven't had coffee, let alone a pee in se=
days...and I find out you stole my ass and made a...mini me.\" (He looks at =
O'Neill for a second. Then he turns to Sam) \"Carter...I should be irked,
CARTER: \"Yes...I-I would be.\"
JACKSON: \"Why don't you tell us who you are?\"
JACKSON: \"According to Norse mythology, that's the god of mischief.\"
CARTER: \"What did you want with Colonel O'Neill?\"
LOKI: \"I have nothing more to say to any of you.\"
O'NEILL: \"Hey! We just saved your flat little white asses from the replicat=
ors. This is
the thanks we get?\"
YOUNG O'NEILL: \"Hey, at least you're gonna live.\"
YOUNG O'NEILL: \"Maybe you're a little put out...but this guy didn't hit all=
buttons on the Xerox.\" (Jack still looks confused) \"This body is gonna fall=
apart if he
doesn't fix me.\"
LOKI: \"I cannot. All the clones suffer the same fate.\"

JACKSON: \"Why risk coming back here and breaking the law after 19 years?\"
LOKI: \"Because...I thought he was the one.\"
O'NEILL: and YOUNG O'NEILL: (simultaneously): \"Me?\"
LOKI: \"I believed his genetic code contained the key.\"

CARTER: (as she's moving jewels around) \"We've already tried contacting the=
number of times...\"
YOUNG O'NEILL: \"You know, you'd think if Thor knew about this...\"
CARTER: \"Okay...pretty sure that's it.\"
We see shots of Carter, Loki, Teal'c...as nothing happens. Then Young O'Nei=
scratches his head.
YOUNG O'NEILL: \"All right, how long are we go...\" (he stumbles slightly, cl=

Scene: A school in Colorado Springs (presumably)
Jack is driving his truck up to the curb. Young O'Neill is sitting on the p=
O'NEILL: \"You're sure about this?\"
YOUNG O'NEILL: \"I've thought a lot about it. You know...you...me...I mean, =

and do it all over again? I mean, especially with all you know now?\"
YOUNG O'NEILL: \"Well, from here on in...you and me are different. Which is =
going to do this.\" (He climbs out of the truck and closes the door. He stop=

window as Jack yells.)
O'NEILL: \"Hey, listen, do me a favor, huh?\"
YOUNG O'NEILL: \"Don't worry, I wasn't gonna keep in touch.\"
O'NEILL: \"Yeah, it'd just be a little...\"
YOUNG O'NEILL: \"Weird.\"
O'NEILL: \"Weird, yeah.\"
YOUNG O'NEILL: \"Yeah.\"
O'NEILL: \"But look, if you need anything just...you know...\"
YOUNG O'NEILL: \"The Air Force has set me up...I'll be fine.\"
O'NEILL: \"You're sure about this? I mean it's...high school...\"
He turns and sees three girls looking at him. They giggle to each other whe=
n they see
him noticing them. He looks at Jack as if to say...Duh!
O'NEILL: \"Yes...go forth, young man.\"
Young O'Neill pulls out a pair of hip shades and puts them on. He pats the =
the truck and backs away. Jack drives away. The school bell rings and Young=
begins walking to the school. He shakes hands with a girl on the way into t=
building. They strike up a conversation.
