"Achoo!"

"Bless."

"Achoooo!"

"Bless," Jack O'Neill said again. "Daniel, I don't know why you insisted on coming to this planet. This plant life is doing hell on your allergies."

Daniel blew his nose and glared at Jack. "You saw those rock formations. There's obviously been some sort of civilization here at one time."

Jack shook his head. "Obviously," he muttered.

"Hey, Daniel," Samantha Carter called. "Check this out!"

"What is it?" He glanced at the walls, but couldn't read any of the writings because of an overgrowth of flowers. He brushed some to the side, causing pollen to fly into his face.

He began to sneeze again.

After the fourth sneeze, he looked over at Sam to see her stifling a laugh. "Oh yes, it's hilarious," Daniel replied sarcastically. His eyes were watering badly. "I think I'll have Robert come back here. There's no way I'm going be able to read this with all these flowers in the way."

Teal'c and Jack met up with them. "Anything of interest?" Teal'c asked.

"Daniel's allergies are acting up so much that he's willing to trust these ancient writings to Rothman."

Teal'c raised and eyebrow and Jack stared at the archaeologist. "Are you sure about that Danny Boy?"

Daniel nodded. "Oh yeah." He wiped his nose. "Very sure."

"Why don't you head on back and let General Hammond know. Teal'c and I will sweep the area while Carter finishes collecting her plant samples."

The group agreed and went their separate ways. As Daniel dialed the gate, he noticed that his eyes felt like they were on fire. He blinked rapidly to make certain he punched in the correct code for the iris and stepped through the gate.

"Dr. Jackson," General Hammond said with a nod, greeting the young man.

Daniel sneezed. "Are you all right?"

"Allergies, sir," he replied, then explained everything to him.

"Very well, report to the infirmary."

Daniel arrived in the infirmary to find no one around. He sneezed again. "Dr. Frasier?" he said.

"I'll be right there, Dr. Jackson, just have a seat."

Daniel patiently waited for the doctor, sneezing every few minutes or so. He sneezed just as she walked into the room. She shook her head. "I thought I said it wouldn't be such a great idea for you to go to that planet."

"Achoo! Well, you know me. Where there are ruins there's... me."

She chuckled, giving him a shot of antihistamines. "There. That should help. Why don't you lay back and rest while the medication takes effect."

"ACHOO!" Daniel smiled warily. "Thanks."


Sam had been back for an hour before she finally saw Daniel. He was just leaving the commissary with a cup of coffee. His eyes were still red and watery. "Hey. How are you feeling?"

He shrugged. "Not too bad. I slept for a good two hours before the medicine kicked in. Dr. Frasier seemed to know I'd be needing it."

"Well," Sam said with a laugh, "Considering the fact that she advised you not to go. I'm not surprised."

"Funny. I think you've been hanging around Jack too..." He trailed off, his coffee cup, slipping from his grasp.

Sam looked at him in concern. "Daniel?"

Daniel swayed and grabbed onto her. His eyes were wide with fear as Sam slowly lowered him to the floor. "Can't...breath..."

"Someone get a med team down here!" Sam exclaimed. "Daniel? God, he's not breathing," she whispered to herself as she began CPR.

Dr. Frasier arrived just as Daniel began breathing again. "Sam?" he said weakly.

She smiled. "You scared the shit out of me. Janet's here now she's going to help you, okay?"
Sam asked, standing up to let the doctor and the nurse help Daniel.

Daniel nodded and began coughing. Janet gasped and looked up at Sam. Her heart jumped into her throat. Daniel was coughing up blood!
