Congratulation Mrs... McKay?



McKay stared at Jack then pointed.

"Him?! Out of all the people on the base you picked him?! But he's so old!"

"Hey wait a second?! Old? Who are you calling old?" Jack spoke loudly stepping up on the ramp next to Carter. Sam looked away still embarrassed at what she had said.

"Sir, please you're not helping" Carter whispered. Jack turned to her.

"So Major you're saying you don't want to marry this... man?" Jack gestured to McKay. Carter sighed.

"Yes Sir" She replied knowing the hole she had dug. McKay stepped towards them.

"Hey I think we can assume she does want me in some small way, don't..." McKay stopped in mid sentence as Jack pulled something out of his pocket and held it up. McKay swallowed "Is that a..."

"Lemon? Yeah you could say that" Jack replied knowingly.

"You know I'm allergic to citrus, I could swell up and die?" McKay stuttered, eyes focused on the Lemon.

"Yeah, that's the point" Jack said smiling.

"Oh this is so not fair!" McKay argued. Jack held the lemon closer. McKay scowled at him. "Fine, if you want her, you can have her but in years to come when you're all old and grey, don't be surprised if she comes crawling back to me!" McKay stormed down the ramp and out the door. Sam watched him go with relief but then saw the eyes upon her. She turned to Jack.

"Sorry Sir, I know I was out of line" She apologised.

"Yes, yes you were Major" Jack said. Sam looked up at him and saw the seriousness in his face. She nodded slightly.

"It won't happen again, Sir" She replied as she started to walk down the ramp when suddenly Jack grabbed her arm. Sam looked back at him.

"Where are you going Major? We have a wedding to finish, we don't want to disappoint all the betters out there placing bets."

"I'm sorry sir I don't understand?" Carter looked at him curiously. Jack smiled.

"Teal'c told me everything" Sam looked across at Teal'c astonished.

"Teal'c!" Teal'c nodded gracefully.

"I will accept my punishment." He replied happily. Sam turned back to Jack as he took her left hand and suddenly squeezed some lemon juice onto the ring.


"You'll see" After a few minutes Jack twisted the ring that was stuck and pulled it off. Sam looked at her now bare hand.

"How did you?..." Sam asked stunned as Jack threw the ring to Daniel so he could give it back to McKay.

"Old trick, now do you want to get married or don't you?" Jack stated. Sam smiled at him.

"But what about our ranks..." Sam asked. Jack turned to Hammond.

"General Sir, do you see a problem with any of this?" Jack asked. Hammond smiled.

"Not one Colonel, now hurry up you two before an incoming traveller decides to come through." Hammond ordered. Jack turned back to Sam.

"So what do you say? You want to live the rest of your life with and old geezer like me?" Jack asked raising an eyebrow. Sam smiled pursing her lips.

"Well when you say it like that..." She nodded. Jack turned to Daniel.

"Right it's a done deal. Maestro music please" After a few minutes music started to fill the room as Jack walked Sam up the ramp.

"Are you sure you want to do this, Sir?" Sam asked having second thoughts on Jack's part.

"As long as you stop calling me Sir, I do" Jack replied. Sam smiled.

"Sorry... Jack" Jack nodded.

"See that wasn't that hard" he said as the person started to talk.

Sam looked around at the scene before her, what a week it's been. She felt a little sorry for McKay... but only a little. McKay will get over it, she knew he would. She looked back at Jack as he said their vows. Sam smiled, she loved when he looked at her like that.

"Samantha Carter do you take Colonel Jack O'Neill to be you lawfully wedded husband..." Sam took a deep breath then exhaled.

"I do"

"You may now kiss the bride" Jack and Sam looked at each other as the crowd cheered. Then they leant in and kissed each other slowly, passionately. Suddenly, unexpectedly, the lights blacked out and the wine of the power dying could be heard. Sam and Jack broke apart.

"Damn it!" Sam cursed. "I thought McKay fixed it" Jack smiled in the dim emergency lights.

"Well Mrs. Samantha O'Neill, looks like honeymoon control room is in order" Jack replied. The crowd laughed as Sam looked at him.

"Shut up and kiss me... Jack" Sam pulled Jack into another longer kiss. For now the base can wait its turn. Sam wasn't going to ruin this moment for the world. Not for space, not for time and definately not for the world. She would have her 2 seconds and then fix the power when she was finished... when she was finished and not 2 seconds before.
