Added DiffLines:

** "Citizen Joe" features Creator/DanCastellaneta as the titular barber, and he openly agrees with O'Neill that [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Mr. Burns]] is a Goa'uld. Homer Simpson would know better than anybody, right?

* TheCharacterDiedWithHim: Don Davis died of a heart attack a few years after retiring from the show, and Carter mentions in the ''Series/StargateAtlantis'' series finale that Hammond died the same way. In ''Series/StargateUniverse'', the USS ''George Hammond'' is named in his honor.

** At a convention panel, actor Don S. Davis (General Hammond) was asked what role he would play if given a choice of switching characters, and he responded that he would play his own role since he had the best chair on the set. When Hammond returned in "Prometheus Unbound" after he was promoted away from the SGC, he made a point of taking the chair with him when boarded the ''Prometheus''.

* AccidentallyAccurate: In "Orpheus" Jack mans a sniper rifle during a rescue operation against a Goa'uld POWCamp. He aims for center of mass. Falls here because the showrunners' reasoning for doing that was because [[PinkMist headshots are messy]] and they didn't want to have to argue with the network censors, but trained snipers in real life aim for center of mass because it's an easier target.

** Most of the dialogue of the titular character in ''Urgo'' was ad-libbed by Dom [=DeLuise=]. Part of the reason why he has so few scenes where he's in frame with Christopher Judge is that the later had trouble keeping Teal'c trademark stoic attitude around the former.

!!Listed Trivia:




!!Other Trivia:

* In "Window of Opportunity" a minimum number of the {{Groundhog Day Loop}}s experienced can be calculated. At the end it is said the Tok'ra have been trying to reach them for over three months. No set values are given, and we don't know when the Tok'ra began to try to contact Earth. With this, considering an average of 30 days to a month: 30(3 months)= 90 days. 90(24 hours)=2,160 hours. About ten or so hours per loop, so 2,160/10=216. Teal'c and O'Neill experienced a ''minimum'' of 216 loops, probably many more.
* The Goa'uld bear many similarities to a creature encountered by the ''Enterprise'' in ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' in season one: a worm-like creature that attaches to the spinal cord, cannot be removed, grants superhuman strength and assumes control of the host body.
* BuiltWithLEGO: Someone on Website/DeviantArt built [[http://fav.me/dfa0ao the SGC stargate]].

* ChannelHop: From {{Showtime}} to the SciFiChannel in 2002, after season 5 wrapped.

* UnCanceled: From season six through season eight, the showrunners were in constant fear of cancellation and, unlike previously where the season finale ended on a cliffhanger, closed out the season's arc solidly. And yet SciFiChannel kept renewing it, continually derailing plans for a GrandFinale film (a fact [[MythologyGag referenced]] by "200"). And then just as the showrunners decided they could keep going, [[ScrewedByTheNetwork the network ended the series]].

** After the series ended the plan was to do one or two movies a year for both SG-1 and ''Series/StargateAtlantis'', but according to the producers the bottom fell out of the DVD market and SciFi balked at continuing after the first two. Apparently the third movie, entitled ''Stargate: Revolution'', would have featured Jack's return as the main character ''and'' it would have finally had the Stargate program going public. However it can be considered shelved for good at this point.

** The SGC would have been more helpful to the Russians had they known [[Creator/GaryChalk Col. Chekov]] was also [[Anime/UnicronTrilogy Optimus Prime]]!
** [[Film/TheWeddingSinger Glenn Guglia]] got a spaceship!
** Marina Sirtis ([[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Deanna Troi]]) plays Dr. Svetlana Markova in "Watergate".
** Creator/DwightSchultz ([[Series/TheATeam Murdock]]) plays the Keeper in "The Gamekeeper".
** Creator/JohnDeLancie ([[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Q]]) plays Colonel Simmons, a [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute semi-replacement]] for Colonel Maybourne starting season 5.
** Several members of Creator/TheOceanGroup make appearances (voice-over and live-action) throughout the series. Most notably Teryl Rothery, who played Dr. Janet Fraiser.
** Creator/AdamBaldwin ([[Series/{{Firefly}} Jayne Cobb]], [[Series/{{Chuck}} Col. John Casey]]) plays Col. David Dixon in "Heroes".
** We all knew that the lovely Sam is an angel, but [[Series/{{Supernatural}} now it's official.]]
** William B. Davis (the [[Series/TheXFiles Cigarette-Smoking Man]]) is a Prior in season 10.
** Aris Boch from "Deadman Switch" is Film/FlashGordon.
** [[Film/ThePrincessBride Vizzini]] is a scientist Vala seduced once upon a time ("The Ties That Bind").
** Creator/MichaelIronside ([[Film/TopGun Jester]], [[Film/StarshipTroopers Raczak]]) plays the innkeeper/village elder of the town in the Ori galaxy that Vala lands in in "Crusade".
** [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Denethor]] is the leader of the town of Camelot in "Camelot".
** Vala's dad is Fred Willard.
** Middle-aged Catherine Langford ("1969") is [[Series/StargateUniverse Eli Wallace's]] mom . . . or maybe grandmother.
* HeyItsThatVoice:
** In "Thor's Hammer", Jack and Teal'c take on ''[[Creator/JamesEarlJones Darth Freaking Vader!]]''
** Haikon of the Sodan plays the entire Vortigaunt race in ''VideoGame/HalfLife2''.
** Nyan from "New Ground" is really [[Manga/InuYasha Inuyasha]]

* OldShame: Not the series itself, but the disintegration feature of Zats. The writers have frequently mentioned in episode commentaries what a bad idea that was, to the point where they mock it in-universe in "Wormhole X-treme!"
