Added DiffLines:

* CulturePolice: Written language has been banned on Abydos for millennia (though there is a wall of hieroglyphics that's somehow survived for all this time), and when Daniel Jackson tries to write something to communicate with the locals, the person he's writing to immediately erases it in fear. In-universe, this is explained as Ra not wanting them to learn about and follow the examples of those who rebelled against the Go'auld on Earth.

The TV series it spawned was very popular and went on for 10 seasons -- it is the third-longest-running scifi series[[note]]We're not counting spinoffs here, or Franchise/StarTrek would be there[[/note]] after ''Series/DoctorWho'' and ''{{Smallville}}''. The planet where this movie takes place was named "Abydos" in the series and other material, so if you are new to this movie and haven't seen the series and you see that name listed on this page or a subpage, it means the planet in this movie.

*** He does note, however, that he can only learn it so fast because he knows the language in its modern form and is acquainted a fair bit with the ancient form, and merely has to learn where the language Sha'uri's people speak diverged. He's essentially taking a refresher course rather than learning the whole language from nothing.
*** Daniel could already speak ancient Egyptian. Key word: ancient. On Earth it hasn't been a living spoken language in quite some time (as Daniel notes). He didn't realize they were even speaking Egyptian at first, until he heard some words that sounded similar. At which point he realized that it was the same language, only their pronunciation of words differed. He basically only had to learn how to pronounce the words in their dialect. Daniel actually explains this nearly word for word in the movie.

-->'''Daniel:''' I don't want to die. Your men don't want to die, and these people certainly don't want to die. It's a shame you're in such a hurry to.



* LeavingAudience: The audience at Daniel's lecture laughs at him and walks out after he admits that even though he is ''certain'' that the 4th Dynasty Egyptians did ''not'' build the pyramids, he has no ready explanation as to who ''did''.

* LastOfHisKind: Ra

He wasn't aware they've all left and thought it was lunch time.

** O'Neil countered this that it wouldn't be the case if Daniel knew the coordinates to Earth and that he and his team had orders.
