“I can’t believe it!” said Daniel.

“But look right there,” said Sam.

“I know!” snapped Daniel. “I just can’t figure out what to do about it!”

“There’s nothing you can do about it,” smirked Jack.

“Indeed,” added Teal’c. “You have certainly colored yourself into a closet.”

Three confused expressions met Teal’c’s words until Sam finally understood.

“That’s ‘painted yourself into a corner,’ Teal’c, and yes, we have,” she said.

In response, Jack chuckled and Daniel glared. Teal’c did nothing, as usual.

After a minute, Jack prodded Daniel. “It’s still your move.”

“I know, but this is crazy! It’s ridiculous! No, that doesn’t cover it. It’s… it’s… I don’t know what it is!”

Jack and Sam let Daniel ramble. They rarely interrupted when he was worked up. Teal’c, however, had no qualms about stopping Daniel’s diatribe.

“I believe, Daniel Jackson, that the word you seek is ‘checkmate.’”

Jack and Sam stifled giggles, but otherwise stony silence followed Teal’c’s words. After a long moment, Daniel grinned, then laughed in spite of himself.

His teammates joined him, and it was a long time before the laughter stopped.

It was far longer before Daniel and Sam challenged Jack and Teal’c in team chess again.
