Funny Facts

Post by JackGywer » Wed Apr 15, 2015 8:11 am

I noticed that in many Stargate episodes Jack in his coffee cup fishing with his finger .
What he always brings from his cup ?
A hair ?
Coffee grounds ?
Or a fly ?

I think that´s funny.
anyone else noticed?
Or something else in the way?

Hi there,

YES, I have noticed that action on Jack's part - always sticking his finger in the cup (of coffee or other drinks)...and I, also, have wondered what is he getting out of his cup of whatever drink it is?????

Your choices are good ones:

A hair ?
Coffee grounds ?
Or a fly ?

I would like to know too. :lol: :lol: :lol:

He's actually doing that as MacGyver as well, and (I think) in "The Eyes of a Stranger". Even in Legend... maybe it's an RDA thing. Someone should ask him about it in Denver :p

He is definitely aware of it. It is a specific acting choice, in the same way that he is always fiddling with props.

I thought he had talked about it in interviews before, and I remember him having this conversation with me back when I was asking him questions that had been submitted by fans. I think it came up when he was talking about other little quirks such as eating jello with a fork and the frequent Mary Steenburgen references. But a quick search didn't turn up the reference. It may have been in conventions that he has answered that question.

But yes, he definitely knows he is doing it, to the point that he has to consciously match the actions each time they shoot the same scene. He says he drives the script supervisor (continuity person) crazy.

I remember the jello-with-a-fork talk - and ice cream. He eats ice cream with a fork in SG-1 too LOLOL. But can't remember hearing about the cup-dipping. I used to love to take note of all those little things for my stories.
