HAYES:This is my first day.
HAYES:He knows it's my first day, right?
HAYES:Guys... Let me enjoy the moment!
HAYES:Ha ha. That's funny. That's very funny. My first day. This is a joke, right? I have a great sense of humor - I didn't know that you had one - but this is good, because we're finding out about each other.
HAYES:Now I have to call the ex-president of Togo... And when I'm done, apparantly the rest of the world is coming to an end.
HAYES:Hosted alien dignitaries. Aquired alien technology. Traveled back in time? Did they really blow up a sun??
HAYES:I'm startin to get a bad feeling about where some of that campain financing came from.
MAYNARD:Mr. President...
HAYES:Did I say that out loud?
HAYES:You should be on my speech-writing team! C'mon, cut the crap, will ya? As crazy as it sounds, we're sitting around here talking about people who are fighting aliens, right? Could we please be specific?!
HAYES:How these people maintain their sanity is beyond me. I'm having trouble just sitting here listening to it.
HAYES:The first time I heard about this, I couldn't believe what I was hearing. I tried to imagine myself doing what these people have been doing for the last seven years, and quite frankly, I don't think any of us can really understand what they've been going through, no matter how many files we read.
HAYES:I am here, Bob, because the people of this nation elected me to run their country. Not the whole damn galaxy. And this is my office, Bob, not yours. No matter what you may think you did to make this happen. And don't you ever, for one second forget that.

HAYES:Never going to happen.
HAYES:Bob, could we stop complainin and start figurin out what we're going to do?
HAYES:You know, when I first took this job, I thought I had the weight of the world on my shoulders. But then I found out what you do for a living.

HAYES:In the mean time, I better prepare a hell of a speech.
ANUBIS:I am Anubis.
HAYES:You've got to be kidding.
ANUBIS:You are the leader of this world?
HAYES:Henry Hayes. President of the United States of America. One nation among many.
ANUBIS:No more. Bow before your god.
HAYES:(laughs) I don't think so. However, I am willing to discuss your surrender.
ANUBIS:If you possess weapons matching mine, you would've used them.
HAYES:Don't let the suit fool you, fella; we're gonna fight.
ANUBIS:You bring distruction upon yourselves.
HAYES:Never going to happen.
 (Anubis leaves)
HAYES:Too much?
HAYES:I guess he didn't buy it.
HAYES:So much for my speech.
DR. WEIR:Mr. President, Prometheus can't win against an entire Goa'uld fleet, but it could buy SG-1 enough time to complete their mission.
KINSEY:Mr. President, that is downright insane. I am relieving Dr. Weir and taking command of this facility.
DR. WEIR:(over Kinsey) Sir, from what I've looked at-
HAYES:Will you shut the hell up?!
DR. WEIR:I'm sorry, sir.
HAYES:Not you, Doctor.
KINSEY:Excuse me?
HAYES:Consider your resignation accepted, Bob.
KINSEY:You can't do that!
HAYES:Oh, please, I've got enough on you to have you shot.
KINSEY:This is the biggest mistake you will ever make.
HAYES:But I think I'll stick with my original thought, which is 'Shut the hell up!'
KINSEY:I promise, you will only live to regret this!
 (Kinsey leaves, slamming the door.)
HAYES:Go ahead, Dr. Weir.
