The team, now designated SG-1 are planning their next foray through the gate as they try to map out the variety of sites available to them and locate their missing friends. O'Neill asks that Teal'c be allowed to join his team but Gen. Hammond thinks that will be unlikely given that he is the host for a Goa'uld. Unknown to anyone, however, is that O'Neill's close friend, Maj. Charles Kawalsky, leader of SG-2, has been infected by a Goa'uld, an immature version that has not yet taken complete control of the host. Kawalsky is having regular blackouts during which the Goa'uld is trying to return to the gate. An MRI reveals what is wrong but it's unlikely the creature that has fused itself to Kawalsky's spine can be surgically removed. Meanwhile, Col. Kennedy arrives to question Teal'c who has pledged his loyalty to his new world.

The iris is stated to be three microns in front of the gate's event horizon. For a sense of scale an average human hair is about 40 microns in diameter, a high grade cashmere fiber is maybe 15 microns. See more
During the operation on Kawalsky there is a close up on the clock that shows that the operation has been going on for 1 hour 19 minutes and counting, but not 30 seconds after that, the same clock on the background reads 23 minutes and counting. In the next passage, the clock appears to have stopped altogether (only the seconds are briefly visible and they are stuck to 00). Soon after that the clock is back to 23 minutes, 52 seconds and counting. Finally, the clock is back to 23 minutes, 47 seconds and counting. See more

You don't think the Goa'ulds are sending people through, do you?
Be like bugs on a windshield.
