When SG-1 returns from planet P3X116 under fire, only three of them make it back to SGC safely: O'Neill, Carter and Jackson. Teal'c entered the gate but it was destroyed before completing the trip and the signal was lost. Carter believes that Teal'c's "signature" is still in the gate's buffer but she's not sure how to retrieve him. Meanwhile, Jackson and Major Paul Davis head to Moscow to negotiate an agreement with the Russians to use their gate for SGC activities. Col. Frank Simmons informs General Hammond that they have only 48 hours to retrieve Teal'c and introduces the brilliant but arrogant Dr. Rodney McKay to help Sam with the problem. For his part, O'Neill turns to a new ally for information after Simmons tries to blackmail Hammond.

[on phone with Daniel
Well, if the DHD could have prevented the problem, maybe the DHD can also fix it. Is there any chance you can get the Russians to give us their DHD?
[Daniel looks in at the negotiations
This is impossible at the moment.
Dr. Daniel Jackson
Not without giving back Alaska.
