* PermissionToSpeakFreely: When it comes to comedic instances of this, Jack O'Neill is the one - unsurprisingly - doing the honours.
-->'''Jack O'Neill:''' General Hammond, request permission to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9cNejowZhAI beat the crap outta this man]].

* NewRuleAsThePlotDemands: The eponymous Stargate has a few simple rules laid out at the beginning of the series: wormholes can only terminate at another Stargate, wormholes can only transmit matter in one direction (for some reason, though this does prevent the base from flooding when they dial a gate that's at the ocean floor), wormholes can only stay open for 38 minutes (never really explained in universe and none of the writers have said why), and nothing can come through the wormhole if there's something directly in front of the wormhole event horizon. Hardly an episode goes by where someone doesn't come along and tac an 'unless' onto one of these rules. The 38 minute time limit is broken several times, and Carter is always surprised by this for some reason.
** 38 minute time limit means that the energy required to open a wormhole is also enough to sustain it for that specific period of time; the limit can be broken only if there's addition of a massive power supply (such as a ZPM, a black hole or Anubis' Stargate Destroyer).

** Kinsey clearly plans to become one. He possibly achieved it in the AlternateReality featured in "Moebius".
*** He did achieve it in "2010".

* MythologyGag: In Season 1's "Fire and Water," O'Neill reads from Daniel's journal of the [[Film/{{Stargate}} original mission to Abydos]]: "Col. O'Neill thinks I'm a geek. I have no idea how to get us back. I'll never get paid." This recalls Daniel listening to his tape recorder in ''Film/{{Stargate}}'' where he ends a lament on his lack of progress in figuring out the symbols with, "I'm never gonna get paid."

* RedShirtArmy: Or Navy in this case. When Anubis launches his attack on Earth, his first attack is against a U.S. carrier battle group in the Pacific. In real life, carrier battle groups are more powerful then most countries, while here the ''Nimitz'' and her escorts are sunk without even being able to see their attackers.

* PopulationControl: There's an episode where SG-1 visits a planet where the whole population has been herded into a DomedCity with the rest of the world outside being a DeathWorld similar to Venus. The entire population is also linked to a central computer through neural implants so they can instantly receive new information. When people start disappearing one by one and [[RetGone instantly fade from the collective memory of every other citizen]] (including the wife of a happily married scientist who chillingly doesn't even know who SG-1 are talking about), it turns out that the computer has been selecting people to sacrifice themselves by leaving the dome because the energy supply of the dome has been decreasing for a while, causing the dome to shrink. At the end SG-1 figures out that the city used to support a population of 100,000; when they first arrive on the planet there are only '''''1,000''''' people left.

** The Tok'ra also only take willing hosts (they will die rather than take an unwilling host), and coexist in a voluntary symbiosis with the host, unlike the Goa'uld who forcibly take hosts, take full control, leaving the host in an AndIMustScream state. It should be noted that, as they are the same species as the Goa'uld, they have the ability to take over a host by force, they just choose not to. Tok'ra call the process "blending". A blended human will have nearly twice the lifespan of a normal human, perfect health, and a HealingFactor thanks to the symbiote. Tok'ra hosts consider this to be worth sharing their body.
