You will have to relive your most painful memory at least once a season.

Don't romance Goa'uld hosts - it may not be the gender you're after.

If you can speak a different language, you will save your friends' lives.

If you get married, your spouse will die or divorce you, attempting to kill you first.

If you come from Abydos, you will die. Conditions vary on how long you've spent there.

If it speaks, blast it.

Try not to be intimidated by people more intelligent than you.

Always follow the yellow brick road.
