A drabble coda to "Threshold."

No dough, no foul.

Thanks to Jerie for making it possible.

Deprogramming means forcing the person to think when they don't want to think. You have to know how to ask the right questions---the ones to which the Goa'uld have no answer.

I should know; I've been brainwashed and mind-stamped and pheromoned and nish'taed up the wazoo. A little electric shock is usually enough to snap me out of it, but McKenzie wouldn't listen. Someday he'll realize that everything is pain and suffering and near-death experiences with the Jaffa. There's never a dull day with Teal'c on the team.

He gives a whole new meaning to melodrama.
