* BunnyEarsLawyer: {{Conversed}}. While he was playing Jack O'Neill, General Michael E. Ryan, the real Chief of Staff of the Air Force, did a cameo AsHimself on the episode "[[Recap/StargateSG1S4E19Prodigy Prodigy]]". Anderson later recalled asking Ryan if he had colonels as disruptive and irreverent as Jack, to which Ryan replied, "Son,[[note]]"Which I thought was incredibly condescending."[[/note]] yes, we've got colonels like you and worse." Anderson then goes on to say that Ryan's successor John P. Jumper agreed: "You're doing the kind of thing we all ''want'' to do but really ''can't''."
