    The name of this episode is "Window of Opportunity". It might have been just a big ripoff of Groundhog day, but boy did I sure love it. It became a instant classic for me. Seeing Jack and Teal'c teeing off on the ramp through the wormhole of the stargate almost made me lose it. Anyone else catch this one?

    Season 4, episode 6. For a show that is supposed to be a drama, this seemed to be their comedy relief episode, similar to Trouble with Tribbles in TOS.
    One of my favorites, and yes, it could have been a ripoff of Groundhog Day (ok, it was), but I didn't like Groundhog Day at all. Yuck! The writing in that just fell apart, but maybe it was just the looks on Anderson's face that made it work.

    Colonel Oneil even says at one point to the archeologist, "Why, so you can be the King of Groundhog Day?"
    It has lots of good lines. "What kind of archeologist carries a gun?", to which Daniel raises his hand, "Um, I do."
