O'Neill's encounter with General Ryan in "Prodigy".
Jack: General, I'd like to talk to you about this mission upon which we are about to embark. It seems...a bit ridiculous, doesn't it?
Hammond: Have you met General Ryan?
General Ryan: Hello, Colonel.
Jack: The General Ryan, Chief of Staff?
Ryan: That's right.
Jack: (out of the corner of his mouth) Shouldn't there have been a memo, or something?
Hammond: You were off-world.
Jack: Oh, yeah. So uh...what brings you to our little secret base, sir?
Ryan: That would be the "ridiculous mission" you just mentioned.
Jack: (quietly) Of course.
Jack: The General Ryan?
Ryan: I've read a lot about you, Colonel, from General Hammond's reports.
Jack: (nervously) Yes sir?
Ryan: Thus far, we like your work.
Jack: Thank you, sir. I like yours. Your Air Force. The Air Force. I love the Air Force.
Hammond: Anything else, Colonel?
Jack: No sir. ...Well actually, I'd like to know how Daniel and Carter got out of this s- (looks at General Ryan) ...very important mission.
Hammond: Dr. Jackson is off-world with SG-11. Major Carter is giving a lecture at the Air Force academy in theoretical astrophysics. If you'd care to take her place...
Jack: (quickly) No.
Hammond: Then you're dismissed.
Jack: Thank you sir. Sirs. Both of you. (leaves)
Ryan: Got your hands full with that one, eh George?
