Sam nearly fainted. This was the last thing she ever expected from
Jack. She took a deep breath.
"Yes, I will." Jack smiled and hugged her.
"Really!" Sam smiled and kissed him. "We have to tell everyone." But Jack
"Tomorrow, okay?" She nodded. Her heart leapt and sprinted around her body.
She was engaged!
"Wake up, sleepyheads," said Jack. Jo muttered something inaudible as she
turned to see him. Charlie moaned.
"Wa eh oo oohin ere?
"What are you doing here? Normally you wait til Daniel drops us off."
"Well, today's different. You are going to a wedding."
"No. I'm going to marry Sam. And you two are going to be bridesmaids."
"Depressing." Jack smiled. At this time of the morning, all Charlie would
say was 'depressing'.
"And you'll wear dresses."
"Get up," Jack said as he left the room. Sam joined him in telling Daniel.
"Really? Wow. This is great for you. Congratulations."
"Thanks. Hey, we need to tell your dad before he leaves Earth," Jack pointed
out. Sam nodded.
"I'll go now. See you guys later."
"Bye, Sam." She smiled and left for the SCG.
"Hey, thanks for putting up with these two last night."
"It was nothing. They weren't a problem at all. We rented out Indiana Jones,
and they were arguing over whether the facts in the film were correct or
not." Daniel smiled. "It was cute." Jack laughed, as Jo emerged from the
guest room, wide-eyed in disbelief.
"Married?" Charlie followed.
"Bridesmaid?" They looked at each other, then chanted in unison.
Jack O'Neill strutted down the corridor to the general's office to provide
him with the good news. He stopped, though, as he heard Jacob's voice in the
"And that's the way it is, general."
"Do they already know?"
"I don't think so."
"Jacob, perhaps I'm not the best person to tell them. Talk to Jack, he'll
make it easier on them."
"George, you know Jack. He'll tell them the happier side and miss out what
they have to do."
"I know. But it has to be done, one way or another. Someone will have to
"Why not you?"
"Because I can't explain it well. I need Teal'c to help."
"So we'll get Teal'c, alright?"
"Fine." Jacob sounded pleased. "See you soon, George." Jack reversed and
passed Jacob as if he'd just arrived.
"Well done," Jacob smiled. Jack looked puzzled.
"Well, no one else has been able to make an honest woman out of Samantha."
"Oh." Jack frowned. Jacob left him feeling puzzled. He swept into the office
"Oh, colonel, come in."
"I already have. Listen, I need to tell you something."
"What? Who told you?"
"It doesn't matter. I've arranged it all."
"WHAT? Oh, boy. How am I going to explain this to Carter?"
"He can't make it?"
"Who." Then Jack noticed. George was on the phone. He hadn't heard a word.
Whoops. He hung up and turned to the leader of SG-1.
"Uh, I have news."
"Yeah. I'm going to marry Carter."
"Excellent! When are you planning to get married?"
"Oh, we haven't decided yet, sir."
"Is this going to make a difficult mission worse?" The general knew that
marriage in the military was a difficult thing. If one was in danger, the
other would kill themselves to save their loved one. If one was, say,
imprisoned by a Goa'uld system lord, the other would go back to save them.
Not a good thing.
"Missions are work. Work and leisure do not mix. She is Carter here, not
Sam." Jack knew what the general was thinking, and he and Sam had agreed. No
matter how bad the situation, the one not captured would attempt to get
backup, instead of going back to save the one imprisoned. This went against
everything Jack thought of when SG-1 members got captured, and not just
Carter. But that was that.
"Good. Well, if you need a hand, just say."
"Yes sir!" With that done, Jack left the office, troubled.
"WHAT!" Charlie and Jo stood up, outraged at Teal'c and Jacob's news.
"That's the way it is."
"I'm afraid that we can. We are the more authoritive in the vicinity and we
control your welfare," intoned Teal'c. Jo looked furiously at Jack and Sam,
who were giggling uncontrollably.
"I don't know what you're laughing at, Sam," smiled Jacob. "You have to,
too." Sam looked like she could kill her father.
"No!" She stared at Jack, who couldn't stop laughing, even though three
women were looking furiously at him. It was unbearable for Jo, who stormed
from the room. Jack calmed down and followed her.
"Look, it could be worse."
"No, it could not."
"Yes, it could." Jack sat next to her. "One word. Frills." Jo shuddered at
"So when do we have to pick?" she sighed.
"Don't ask me."
"Urgh, frills." Jo sighed. "Frills."
In the shop sat three very annoyed people, while two more sat sniggering,
and a sixth stood looking exasperated.
"Aw, c'mon! Hurry up and choose!" laughed Jack and Daniel. Sam, Charlie and
Jo stared at the pair, while the assistant sighed, holding up more dresses.
"Maybe Madam would like to pick her own?"
"Good idea." Sam stood up and, after throwing Jack and Daniel dirty looks,
strolled along the racks. Then she stopped.
"Excuse me?" The assistant went over and they talked in low voices. Then
Charlie and Jo were summoned. They all picked up a leaflet and went behind
the curtain as the assistant picked the appropriate dresses. After a few
minutes, Daniel and Jack got bored and went round the curtain, but they were
ushered away before they could get a look.
Minutes later, the ladies returned with the dresses wrapped up.
"Because you were laughing so much." started Sam.
".you aren't getting a peep." continued Jo.
".until the big day," finished Charlie.
The big day soon arrived. Jack sat on the pew, waiting for his bride. His
best man, Daniel, was practising his role.
Sam was fretting. She looked stunning in her silver dress. It was thin all
the way down; as were Charlie and Jo's dresses, but theirs' were deep
"Sam, stop fretting, you look stunning," sighed Jacob for the fifth time as
the car pulled up to the church.
"Dad, I'm not sure I can do this."
"Sam, look at me. I know you. You know you can do this. These worries are
only skin deep. Look into your heart, past these worries, and do what you
think is right." Sam hugged her father. Then they went in the church.
Jack turned to see her. Daniel voiced his thoughts.
"Wow!" Jack's heart did a somersault. This absolutely stunning woman was his
bride. His bride.
"You ready?" she asked him.
"You look great. Better than great. You look.wow."
The wedding was an opulent affair, with SGC members in tuxedos and dresses.
"Jack, why are you going to marry me in your hat?"
"Well, it's a case of love me, love my hat."
"Take it off."
"Take it off!!"
"No buts! TAKE IT OFF!!!!" Jack obeyed, but pretended to brush away a tear.
Sam sighed and then it hit her.
She was committing herself to marriage. Okay, so it was to the one man she
loved, but it was a big step. Was she really ready for that?
She turned to Jack.
"I can't do this." He turned to her.
"I can't do this. The whole marriage thing."
"Sam, what are you trying to say? You don't think we should get married?"
"Yes. No! I mean.not yet. One day, but not today." Jack smiled.
"I get it, and I think you're right. We're kinda rushing into all this, aren
't we?" A cough. They looked at the vicar.
"Are you getting married or are you having a coffee morning?"
"We're having a coffee morning. What did you expect, a marriage?" Jack
drawled. Sam giggled. Jack turned to the congregation.
"This whole marriage is off. As of now. 'Cos we're not ready. Comprendez?"
The crowd laughed at this, but Jo and Charlie almost screamed.
"WHAT?!? You mean that WE were put into PURPLE DRESSES for NO REASON???"
