When Jack introduces the team he calls her Sam.

As they are walking into the village, Sam smiles slightly and looks fondly amused with Jack over his “trade.”

He calls Sam to warn her that they may be in danger and tells her to be careful.


‘We have a shipload of frozen people’ exchange

Waking up in the infirmary together

Go to check on Daniel together, no sense of personal space, their whole sides are up against each other

He worries about her heading to a hostile planet with only Felger as back up; turns up in an Alkesh to save her

She indulges his desire to surprise General Hammond with his “alternate transportation”

In Felger’s fantasy, he and Jack watch Sam and Chloe fighting


She’s not amused by his willingness to ‘help’ the Ha’ktyl propagate

Sam’s discussion with the Jaffa woman on her relationship with Jack: ‘You are close to Col O’Neill?’, ‘Yeah. I like to think we have a special relationship.’ Sam replies. ‘I hope to someday have a special relationship.’, ‘Oh. No. It’s not like that.’ ‘Like what?’ ‘We aren’t…I mean…we don’t…’ Sam stutters. ‘I was speaking of the mutual respect you share.’ Sam; ‘I knew that.’

The scene in the gate room when Sam arrives back: ‘Miss me?’ Jack asks in front of her father and General Hammond. ‘Of course, sir.’ Sam.

Jack compliments her on the command then invites her to lunch.


Really abrupt with Daniel in the elevator because of his worry for her

She imagines her father tells her to find happiness and allow herself to love and be loved (similar to what he tells her on his deathbed, but not reflecting his actual understanding of her feelings for Jack)

His disappointment and frustration when their search is a bust

Her scene with ‘hallucination’ Jack as she discusses her relationship with him (or lack thereof) and imagines a kiss

Worrying back at the SGC about her as they struggle to find her; his scene with Teal’c in the locker room

Kinsey suggests Sam and Jack are more than friends or colleagues

Lost City 1

He tells Daniel that helping him with the crossword will be the one thing she doesn’t know

He’s obsessed with the crossword she gave him; it’s even more important than work (and his job is to save the planet!)

She turns up at his house—funny story; when she tells him she couldn’t sleep he tells her she should have called

They discuss how many planets they’ve visited, most of which you can’t see from earth

He encourages her to stay when she gets uncomfortable

They have the national treasure discussion

They share a smile about Daniel’s funny story of ending up at Jack’s house

He deflects attention from his situation by joking that time is relative and Carter could explain it if there were enough time

Lost City 2

The last thing he wants to do before he loses his faculties is finish the crossword she gave him; she’s not impressed with his Uma Thurman answer

He tells her to take command; he says he trusts her and resigns

On the ship, she tries to tell him what she was going to say at the house before Daniel and Teal’c showed up and he stops her with ‘I know’

She orders him after he tells her to take over the leadership

She’s immediately by his side when he collapses in the chair at the end; she calls him ‘Jack’ and pleads with him to stay with them

She reaches out to touch the icy tomb tenderly and he seems to be looking back at her
