Sel Reviews Master Bra'tac

Don't look up and don't look down
You don't das make the boss man frown

Bend your knees and bow your head
And pull that rope until you're dead

You and me, we sweat and strain

You and me, we sweat and strain

ody all achin' and racked with pain
Tote that barge and lift that bale

Teal'c, I must confess that I have been letting you
THINK that you've been letting me win!


Season 7 ~ Orpheus

After Daniel Jackson's return buck naked from one heck of a Season 6 Bender, he's found nekked in a field. All the girls gawk, which causes O'Neill to hiss that Danny is nothing more than a show off. (Secretly, O'Neill wishes he could get that response from the girls)

But actually, Daniel is having deep emotional issues after his bender. He keeps saying that he ascended to a high plane of existance, but everyone at the SGC knows the truth. George tells everyone just to humor Daniel though you can tell that George is tempted to tell him, "Man, you were DRUNK!"

Since he still has his headache, (from his Ascension, wink), he decides to light about 30,000 candles in Teal'c's room at the SGC to meditate. (Do you think that they get a discount on all those candles?)

While he's meditating, he realizes that while he was Ascended, he had left himself a Big Ole Sticky Note™ on his Short Term Memory about "SOMETHING I REALLY NEED TO REMEMBER WHEN I RETURN BACK TO MY REGULAR PLANE OF EXISTANCE ABSOLUTELY BUCK NAKED AFTER ONE HELL OF A BENDER ".

But he can't remember what is was. Apparently the sticky note fell off during his rather rapid descent.

He mopes around for a bit, and then he remembers! He saw Bra'tac and R'yac bonding on a Jaffa Prison Planet. Apparently while he was Ascended, he was keeping an eye on his friends. (I wouldn't want Sam or Janet to know about your trips through the locker room, Danny, as you'll be one dead Descended Person).

But the only problem is, he doesn't remember where they were.

Boy, that must have really been one heck of a bender, Danny. He remembers a couple details so they manage to narrow the location down to Erebus.

But they have to hurry as Bra'tac has run out of Tretonin!

So Teal'c and the rest storm the prison camp, and Teal'c is captured. He is soon without his Tretonin, but it's worse than that! Teal'c's full of self-doubt ever since he lost Junior.

Naturally, Bra'tac is sympathetic to Teal'c problems. He clouts him on the head and says, "Who planned this Rescue? That Human O'Neill? I know Hammond of Texas did not!"

The two Jaffa bond for a bit, waiting their turn to die, when Teal'c decides to admit to Bra'tac, that he has been letting Bra'tac win all their sparring sessions all these years.

Bra'tac informs Teal'c that all these years, Bra'tac's been letting Teal'c think that he's letting Bra'tac win.

Fortunately Jack and the rest of the team back at the gate manage to do some serious damage and save Teal'c and Bra'tac.
