PRODUCTION NOTES

  • “I’ve received a lot of feedback from viewers telling me how much they like the bond that has developed between Fraiser and Sam Carter. Carter gets a great deal of insight into the doctor’s background in ‘Hathor’ when the two of them battle a Goa’uld. I had a really good time doing this story because it gave old Doc Fraiser the chance to lose her lab coat, put on fatigues and carry a machine gun. However, it was the episode ‘Singularity’ that truly served to strengthen their relationship. Carter becomes attached to this little girl named Cassandra after she and SG-1 save her from the Goa’uld. As much as she would like to care for Cassandra she knows she can’t because of her involvement with SG-1, so Fraiser adopts the child. Thanks to the friendships Fraiser has made with Sam and the others she has become a three-dimensional character as opposed to a cardboard cutout spouting off medical jargon.” (Actress Teryl Rothery, in a 1999 interview with Steve Eramo)
  • “There are obviously defining moments for each of our characters. You know, I think very early on in the [series] in ‘Singularity,’ with the elevator and the little girl — is [Carter] gonna go to get Cassie, or she going to go back up in the elevator. That was a turning-point, I think, for the character.” (Actress Amanda Tapping, in an interview with GateWorld)
