    Window of Opportunity is one of the best all time episodes!

  • Doug - 8 years ago

    The best part of Window of Opportunity was finding out what happened to Teal'c everytime. I am surprised that kept opening the door didnt come to be in a full body cast.....

  • Line Noise - 8 years ago

    Had to vote for Window of Opportunity. Time travel is awesome! Although 200 would probably be my next vote.

  • Blake Linton - 8 years ago

    Window of Opportunity. Time loops are wonderful, and nothing beats Jack golfing through a Stargate!

  • Cheshil - 8 years ago

    Have to go with Window of Opportunity. Not only is it my number one episode of all time, but it's also the episode I show people to get them interested in Stargate.

    ...and it's the episode I watch half the time I decide to watch one.

  • BMc - 8 years ago

    Picked Irresistible... yeah, I know Lucius was a dirtbag, etc. - but the cast obviously had so much FUN playing it up with him! (And, I really don't know the SG1 episodes.)

  • Superfroggy - 8 years ago

    WIndow of opportunity was my favourite episode. It is classic stargate. And I love ... " in the middle of my backswing?!?!?!". It's just too good!

  • Marshall - 8 years ago

    Window of opportunity has an amazing lead. While I also liked wormhole x-treme, I ultimately ended up going with brain storm. Haha, I'm only 1 of 7 tho :) :(

  • Pardusian141 - 8 years ago

    Window of Opportunity by far. Although 200 takes second place. I am slightly confused as to how Space Race and Bounty are on there but its fine.

    I thought it was funny how O'niell was learning pottery. He should have told Carter, "What if I told you I could make a wonderful pot if we wern't stuck in this TIME LOOP!" Then start making the smily face on the plate....that would have been funny.

  • Pauline Kennedy - 8 years ago

    Been away for ages and come back to a survey.
    Window of Opportunity has to be my all time number one episode. I still can't pass by ketchup or mustard with out the urge to create a master piece of Da Vinci proportions on the nearest plate.

  • Maggiemayday - 8 years ago

    While WOW will be the winner, and I do love it, I had to go with 200. I laughed so hard I had tears in my eyes!

  • Jordayna - 8 years ago

    While Duet is my favorite SGA episode, I have to go with Window of Opportunity. I have seen that episode hundreds of times and I will see it hundreds more!

  • Carolyn - 8 years ago

    Window of Opportunity- so many great little moments. I've seen it so many times, and it's still hilarious.

  • Marie - 8 years ago

    I'm BoltBait's daughter, Marie, and I voted for duet because it was my favorite episode on Atlantis. I absolutely loved the interactions between Lt. Cadman and Dr. McKay.

  • Jonathan Maes - 8 years ago

    Windows of Oppurtunity was without a doubt the funniest SG-1 episode, but 200 was pretty close too!

  • Airelle - 8 years ago

    I voted Window Of Opportunity, It was a race to stop the looping, but had fun along the way, after a fashion. Rick and Chris and Amanda and Michael, and Don, what great chemistry!. (and of course the writing-directing) I miss the show, and this was a terrific example of the reason why. Good stuff! thanks.

  • Sharon - 8 years ago

    Loved the chemistry between Dom DeLuise and the regular cast.

  • StellaByStargate - 8 years ago

    Window of Opportunity. Hands down. It was the perfect "Jack" episode. All humor on the outside but scratch the surface and there was a lot of pain underneath....just like Jack.

    Plus (and yes, you knew I would be going there...) it had the only *real* Sam/Jack kiss. Our Sam. Our Jack. Oh sure...maybe she doesn't remember it...but Jack most assuredly does....

    Besides. Because of WoO, I never pass the Froot Loops in the grocery store now without smiling.

  • archersangel - 8 years ago

    i vote window of opportunity.

  • LJ - 8 years ago

    Ah. Window of Opportunity! Not only hilarious, but wonderfully touching and a great insight into Jack. And...Hello! The Sam/Jack kiss! ;)

  • BiloBella&Kasper - 8 years ago

    Window of opportunity with Jack causing trouble and having fun....what more can be said?

  • Gilder - 8 years ago

    Since I was not into SG1 until it went to SciFi Channel (now Syfy), my vote went to "The Other Guys". That one had me rolling on the couch from start to finish.

  • Josh - 8 years ago

    Window Of Opportunity - When I'm feeling down, that's my go-to ep.

  • BoltBait - 8 years ago

    I voted Urgo. Dom DeLuise is so, so funny.

    My second choice would be 200 for all of the "in" jokes.

    Then, Family Ties. Fred Willard is awesome.

  • Samantha Padilla - 8 years ago

    I still think the reveal of the commemorative painting at the end is one of the funniest moments I've ever seen on SGA!

  • mrjosh - 8 years ago

    I watch a YouTube video of the funny moments from Window of Opportunity approximately every other day -- that's how funny it is.

  • Susan - 8 years ago

    Urgo rates high on my list of favourites - I've seen it less times than Window of Opportunity and Duet, so it's kinda fresh whenever I catch Stargate on Sky. However, I still voted for Duet ... gotta remain loyal to SGA/Beckett and Cadman :)

  • Luc Blackburn - 8 years ago

    Window of Opportunity
    ------------------------------

    - "Colonel O'Neill ! WATH THE HELL ARE YOU DOING ???" - Hammond of Texas
    - "In the middle of my backswing !!" - O'Neill

  • Alison Ripley - 8 years ago

    By far the funniest episode has to be Ergo. It's clever and funny and cute and family friendly. Both my 10 year old and 7 year old daughters have watched it so much that they quote lines from it.

  • Johan Bäckman - 8 years ago

    Window of Opportunity for sure. Duet for the runner up.

  • Keith - 8 years ago

    I voted for Family Ties. Partly because I felt sorry for it that it had no votes, partly because it had Fred Willard in it, and partly because it had my favorite Stargate exchange in it, brilliantly referencing Stargate's emminent cancelation, Eureka, it not getting the respect it deserves, etc. Brilliant!

  • JimFromJersey - 8 years ago

    "WoO" for the win. As a matter of fact, I'm going to watch it tonight from my SG-1 DVD collection.

  • lsd - 8 years ago

    I like Urgo because of Dom DeLuise. I think hes a hilarious guy.

  • Spinwick - 8 years ago

    Window of Opportunity was great because of the way RDA/Jack took advantage of all the windows of opportunity.

  • Sunstonetal - 8 years ago

    Duet was really fantastic but my vote goes to Window of Opportunity :)

  • jys - 8 years ago

    200! Dont waste money on cooking classes. Just practice at home

  • Laura - 8 years ago

    Hard decision! In the end I went with Prometheus Unbound cuz I'm a Jackson fan and I always loved the Jackson/Vala stuff.

  • Alisa Russell - 8 years ago

    Loved, loved, loved, did I say I loved Window of Opportunity!! Funniest episode ever!!

  • 2cats - 8 years ago

    Window of Opportunity has Jack and fruit loops, golfing through the gate, Jack kissing Sam! Oh so many, many great lines of dialogue, wonderful comedic timing and never fails to leave me laughing no matter how often I watch it. Many other eps were also wonderfully funny, but Window of Opportunity is by far the best!!

  • klaatu - 8 years ago

    Window of Opportunity; classic Jack and Tealc Groundhog Day episode. Golfing through the gate = awesome!

  • Jay Lewis - 8 years ago

    They're winners, every one. It's like picking your favorite child. How could you make me do that Joe? Pick my favorite child like some...some... barbarian!

    WoO purely on "In the middle of my backswing!!"

  • MistyC - 8 years ago

    There were so many great options, but I had to go with 200. The scene parodying Farscape was priceless. Loved it.

  • fuchsia - 8 years ago

    Oops! I was talking about Window of Opportunity.

  • fuchsia - 8 years ago

    Why vote for this episode?
    "The Kiss" of course... and we all went squeeeeeee!

  • Ryan - 8 years ago

    Some VERY close seconds, but hands down... "Window of Opportunity"...

    WACKO!!
    IN THE MIDDLE OF MY BACKSWING? =)

  • anthony - 8 years ago

    Windows of opportunity because is the best episode and very funniest episode.

  • David Ryan - 8 years ago

    Wormhole X-Treme has to be the funniest but there was also a nice touch of sadness when Martin revealed why he had wiped his memory again. I always wondered whether Colonel Danning was meant to be a parody of Richard Dean Anderson or Kurt Russell. Also some entertaining guest spots by the writers of course

  • supplyship - 8 years ago

    WoO was very funny in parts, but the end is decidedly NOT funny. Very emotional and intense, and RDA hit all the right notes of desperation that their looping might not be over, and the overwhelming grief of a parent who's lost his son.

    200, however, is just funny all the way through, so it wins my vote!
    "What? It has to spin, it's round! Spinning is so much cooler than not spinning."

  • Mike A. - 8 years ago

    My first thought before seeing the list was Wormhole X-treme! since I just watched it a couple weeks ago and it was still fresh in my mind. Window of Opportunity was hilarious as well but only during the time-looping parts, Wormhole X-treme! was funny all the way through, as was 200. 200 was just a little over the top for me, still some GREAT scenes in it though! The simple fact that there are so many episodes to choose from shows how much fun this franchise was to watch because it didn't take itself too seriously. For me personally, though, I had to vote for Wormhole X-treme! because it is full of jokes, references, and cameos, all of which I may never fully get(because I wasn't a crew member on the show) and that keeps me looking for more and more in the background and listening more intently to the dialog for clues. It keeps it fresh that way, and the jokes will never get old.

    Part of me understands why Window of Opportunity is getting so many votes, but part of me also thinks it's because of the Jack/Sam shippers just voting for it because of Jack's very intentional kiss.

  • Russ - 8 years ago

    Window of Opportunity is always one episode we talk about and always brings a smile back thinking about it! "Right in the middle of my back swing!!"

  • Dtape - 8 years ago

    Window of Opportunity (which shouldn't really be a surprise looking at the results). it had everything, Jack and Sam kissing, Jack actually losing it, Jack reading a report.

  • Mark M - 8 years ago

    When I first saw the polling question, "Window of Opportunity" was my first instinct, but when I saw "200" in the listing, I just figured that had to be. "200" was funny throughout (and meant to be), while "Window", with many GREAT funny moments, ended very emotionally and seriously.

  • Gene - 8 years ago

    I went with Window of opportunity, not only was it comedic, but it was a great voerall episode, with one of my favorite quotes "'He read the report???'"

    Citizen Joe was pretty good though, but really nailed it at the end when Sam questioned the Col about having the thoughts of a barber in his head all these years and he just blew it off as 'it was relaxing'.

  • Shuth - 8 years ago

    As most of the other comments and the poll shows, Window of Opportunity was the funniest episode. The mess hall scene is one of the most memorable funny scenes of the series.

    Although the final scene of Harmony had me giggling for a fairly long time...

  • Jacqueline - 8 years ago

    I've been silently lurking on this blog for a couple of weeks now, but thought it was only fair I start commenting after seeing the above poll. For me, Window of Opportunity wins my vote; not only for its comedic value in the forms of Jack and Teal'c, but it was the first episode of the show I ever saw and I was hooked almost immediately! I never missed an episode after that day and I even convinced my dad to watch the show with me too. Even with Stargate now rarely on our screens, I at least have the memories of the times I spent with my daddy. Thank you Mr Mallozzi! :)

  • Russell - 8 years ago

    I have to cast my vote for Window of Opportunity! Duet comes a close second however.

  • Chris - 8 years ago

    Had to vote for 200. It's a great episode, a non-stop barrage of jokes (including a fair number of "in-jokes" specifically directed at the fans that've been there since the beginning)

  • Joel - 8 years ago

    Undoubtedly for me it would be 200. I love the part when O'Neill is invisible.

    "Sir? Are you there?"
    ". . . Nope."

    Best scene ever.

  • Aaron H - 8 years ago

    I like many others, went with Window of Opportunity. Simply the funniest one, enough said.

  • JimFromJersey - 8 years ago

    I immediately thought "Window of Opportunity", it's one of my top 5 SG-1 episodes. But had to fight off the urge to choose Urgo or 200. So I went with my first instinct. "Window" for the win.
    I'm sorry, but that's just how I feel about it. =)

  • Tom - 8 years ago

    My favorite line from Window of Opportunity is where O'neill freaks our in the mess hall: "If we don't find a way out of this soon, I'm gonna lose it. Lose it... It means go crazy, nuts, insane, bonzo, no longer in possession of ones faculties, three fries short of a Happy Meal, wacko!"

  • Anaria - 8 years ago

    Another hard choice :)

    I voted Prometheus Unbound. That's still one of my favourites.

  • Rolf - 8 years ago

    This is the easiest poll so far. Window of Opportunity is simply unforgettable. If I just could turn time back and view it again, and again, and again... first time is always the best :)

    Prometheus Unbound was very good too (Claudia Black was one of the best things that ever happened to Stargate).

  • Jo - 8 years ago

    Prometheus Unbound. Daniel's gonna be walking really funny after Vala got him where it hurts with the fire extinguisher! Those two seemed to be having GREAT fun!

  • Lee Peters - 8 years ago

    Really? Is there any other choice over Window of Opportunity? "IN THE MIDDLE OF MY BACKSWING?!?!?!?" Priceless!

  • Netty - 8 years ago

    This was a hard one to decide. Soo many awesome comedy eps. Urgo, The other guys, Avenger 2.0, Prometheus Unbound, 200, Duet - I love them all! But I had to go with Window of Opportunity as it stands out the most even now. Never get sick of rewatching it, great one liners that I can quote to this day! "...three fries short of a happy meal! WACKO!!"
    Hilarious laugh out loud scenes throughout the episode and not to mention the Jack and Sam kiss!!

    If it the poll was for best Atlantis comedic episode I would go with Duet all the way!

  • Thomas McCool - 8 years ago

    A close call between Urgo and Windows of Oppurtunity. I love Don DeLuise but you can't beat Teal'c teaching himself to Juggle and Jack Teeing off through an open wormhole.

  • Janet - 8 years ago

    Window of Opportunity of course. How can it not win. Great story and very funny lines throughout the whole episode. "Three fries short of a happy meal."

  • Scott - 8 years ago

    Groundhog Day, uh, I mean Window of Opportunity. No Question.

  • Liz - 8 years ago

    There were many laugh-out-loud moments in the Stargate universe, but Window of Opportunity is one that I will sit down and watch whenever it appears on TV even though I have it on DVD. Really shows off the comedic talents of the SG1 actors.

  • Redbeard - 8 years ago

    Window of Opportunity should have no trouble winning this poll!

  • John May - 8 years ago

    Sam walking down the aisle to the Stargate wedding theme - haha!!
    I think an honourable mention should go to Vala though and her thoughtfulness in wondering what to do when approaching a turtle upside down in the desert.

  • Marjorie Roden - 8 years ago

    Undoubtedly for me it would be DUET. Outstanding because of the stellar acting of David Hewlett, and at the moment when you thought the comedic envelope could not be pushed further, it WAS! ALL HAIL KING DAVID!!!!

  • prof.madmax - 8 years ago

    "In the middle of my BACKSWING!" INDEED!!! I used to always hope that that show would be on the repeats. I also thought that "Window of Opportunity" was such a clever title too. "Urgo" wins best guest comedy performance for me though. "Wormhole X-treme" & "200" represent milestone eps to me first and comedic second.

  • Roger - 8 years ago

    Window of Opportunity is probably the funniest episode, 200 is a close second.

  • Shannon - 8 years ago

    "In the middle of my BACKSWING!"

    There are so many classic lines in this episode. Whenever I need a good laugh, this is the episode I turn on :)

  • Becky Truitt - 8 years ago

    Ok...that was really hard. There were so many GREAT comedy episodes.

  • Slam - 8 years ago

    There were many funny moments in other episodes but Window of Opportunity was without question the funniest episode.
