What's better, the scene continues in the style of a 1978 Nerds sketch on SNL.

* In the ''Series/StargateSG1'' pilot "Children of the Gods", Captain Samantha Carter explains to Colonel Jack O'Neill (played by Richard Dean Anderson -- the actor who played MacGyver) that "It took us fifteen years and three supercomputers to [[MacGyvering MacGyver]] a way to power the gate." Interestingly, Amanda Tapping, the actress who plays Carter, actually ad-libbed this line during her audition. This is what actually got her secured for the role.
