When Jack was released from the infirmary, he took SG-1 out for dinner. "T-bones all around," he told the waitress.

"Saving the Earth from destruction?" Daniel suggested.

"All in a day's work," Jack replied. "We have the USAF to thank for dinner."

Daniel laughed, but Sam asked, "How did you figure out--"

"Sergeant Siler helped with the red tape."
