Joy Ride

"Do not be alarmed, Daniel Jackson, I am in complete control of this craft."

"Do you think you could be in control of it at something less than Mach 4?"

"This craft is capable of much greater speeds than the one at which we currently travel." Teal'c replied calmly.

"Yeah, well, that's not the point."

"What is the point that you wish to make?"

"That I'd like to reach our destination alive."

"I assure you that you will be unharmed."

Daniel was about to say that his stomach was already harmed, seeing as they had left it behind. However before he could complain about the queasiness Teal'c turned sharply. Welding his shut Daniel held on for dear life as they careened into the turn. He swore that the only reason his life wasn't flashing before his eyes was the fact that they were going too fast for the memories to keep up with him.

When they finally did come to a stop Daniel spent a few minutes taking stock and making sure that all of his organs were still intact and where the should be. After swallowing his heart out of his throat and back into his chest it seemed like they had survived the trip after all. He looked over at the normally stoic Jaffa and noted the wide smile of satisfaction on his face.

Back in the relative safety of the SGC Daniel wandered the halls towards his office. A nice calming translation would hopefully settle his still rebelling stomach. On the way he crossed paths with Sam. She looked him over and noticed the green behind his gills.

"Hey, Daniel, how was the ridding lesson?" Sam asked with a bright smile.

"A terror unlike any I've ever known." Daniel replied seriously.

"That bad, eh?"

"I...I don't even know what suddenly put it in Teal'c head that he wanted to drive my car."

"O'Neill and I have been playing a video game known as Grand Theft Auto." Teal'c informed Daniel as he joined them.

"Grand Theft Auto?"

"Yes, it is a very enjoyable game. You should join us sometime."

"I think I just got more than enough of a demonstration. If you'll excuse me..."

"Where are you going?" Sam called after him.

"To find Jack, and kill him."

Daniel found Jack about to pack up and leave for the day. Looking up at the barely contained fury on the docile archeologists face made Jack smile. Daniel faked the same sweet smile.

"I take it Teal'c asked to borrow your car."

"Yeah, a little bird told me that it was your idea."

"He really wanted to try his hand at 'Earth driving', and since you've got the sporty little thing I thought it was the perfect choice."

"Sporty? Jack, it's a Saturn."

"Well it has to be better than my Jeep." Jack chucked.

Daniel narrowed his eyes at Jack.

"Oh come on, Daniel, no harm was done."

"The media is right." Daniel sighed.

"Right about what?"

"Video games are dangerous."

"It's not the video games fault."

"You're right, it's yours."

"Live a little, Daniel."

"I live plenty."

"Yeah right, you die plenty too. I don't see what you're complaining about it couldn't have been anymore dangerous than our normal day."

"Jack, next time take Teal'c out on your little 'joy ride' yourself."

"Are you kidding? Teal'c would flip my Jeep before he even got the parking break off."

"Fine by me."
