Sam: He wanted to know who installed that jamming program to stop him playing games on the base computers

Daniel: Wasn't that you?

Sam: Yes

Daniel: did you tell him that?

Sam: Do I look stupid?

Sam: Of course I didn't. I told him I didn't know!

Daniel: LOL! Are you joining us for a drink tonight?

Sam: Yeah… could need it

Daniel: Why?

Sam: Pete and I split up

Daniel: I'm so sorry. Why? When?

Sam: Just before we went off world last. I found out that he has another girlfriend. Bastard! But I don't care!

FLASHBACK

Jack walked into Hammond's new office in DC with the complete intention of retiring. He couldn't cope with having to give up the woman he loved for a job. He wanted his second chance with her.

"No way in Netu Jack"

"But General…"

"George"

"George, I love her. I want to be with her "

"Son, I know that. But you are both vital to the project. I'm sorry but that's the way it is"

Jack placed his face in his hands "Is there anything you can do?"

"Maybe, but no promises Jack"

END FLASHBACK

He left a message for me to call him on Monday. Which I'm gonna do. But what happens off base happens off base and that's the way it is in my command. There is someone here. I have to go

PS

That does not mean that you are free to go to Atlantis.


After dismissing his visitor, Jack pulled out his cell phone and pressed speed dial 3.

"Hey Rich….its on"
