Disclaimer: Not mine. No profit.

A/N: Written for sg_fignewton for SG-1 Gen Day. Since this was commentfic, it's unbetaed and might have some errors. I apologize in advance.


Teal'c stopped for what seemed like the hundredth time in the past twenty minutes. Daniel supposed that everything must seem so new and exciting for him given the fact he was, well, new on Earth.

"It's a grocery store," Jack said. "Not Disneyland."

"For Teal'c, it probably is Disneyland." Daniel slowed the cart and waited for Teal'c to move.

"I'd rather be at Disneyland," Sam said with a sigh.

Daniel wasn't sure he agreed with Sam on this one, but at any rate, being somewhere aside from the market sounded appealing to him.

"We must purchase this," Teal'c said, grabbing a box off the shelf.

"What is that?" Jack took the box from his hands. "Lucky Charms?"

"I have been informed that they are magically delicious."

Daniel nearly choked on air. "Uh, Teal'c, you realize it's not real magic."

"It does not matter."

"There are a ton of preservatives in this." Now Sam was reading the box.

"Look, if he wants his Lucky Charms, he'll get his Lucky Charms," Jack said and placed it in the cart. "It can't be any worse that your Cocoa Puffs."

"Brain food," Sam said.

"You should talk, Jack. I've seen you with Froot Loops."

"Good source of calcium," Jack muttered. "Better than all those candies you hoard in your drawer."

Daniel narrowed his eyes. "How do you know what's in my drawer?"

"Can't we think about Teal'c here?" Jack nudged Daniel away from the cart.

Daniel shrugged and went to the shelves lined with cereal boxes. He'd never really understood the appeal of them. While he supposed a child could appreciate the aesthetic of the cartoon characters, as well as the sugar, Daniel never really could get past the taste. He grabbed one of the boxes and flipped it over, studying the puzzle on the back.

"You cannot take this food." Teal'c grabbed the box from Daniel's hands and handed it to a startled child who happened to be passing by. He eyed SG-1 sternly. "Trix are for children."

Sam and Daniel blinked at him. Jack quickly steered Teal'c away from any more kids.

"Okay, what's next?" Jack asked.

Teal'c checked his list. "I wish to see the frozen items."

"Frozen foods it is." He waved at Sam and Daniel to follow. "Let's go."

Daniel sighed. It was going to be a long night.

Heh, thanks. Oh *stares at the pretty icon* I apologize for any mistakes in this little thing. It's unbetaed and was comment fic for someone. I also miss something.

*stares at your icon some more*
AstroGirl: Teal'castrogirl2 on October 21st, 2007 11:31 pm (UTC)
The icon is by psychofilly. Is it not gorgeous? *strokes it lovingly*

Anyway, unbeta's commentfic or not, this is cute. :)

Hee! ::chuckles at the idea of Teal'c in the freezer aisle::

It's always surprised me there aren't more 'Teal'c embraces Tau'ri culture' fics. Maybe I've just missed 'em.
Working for the Mandroid: Jugglingmoonshayde on October 21st, 2007 11:26 pm (UTC)
Me too! I love fics where Teal'c explores something we take for granted. There just aren't enough of them! Maybe I've missed them too.

That was great! "I have been informed they are magically delicious." LMAO! I wish to see the rest of the shopping trip.

Thanks! I love Teal'c in Tau'ri culture. We need more of it.

Heart. :D

You write Teal'c so well.

Thanks! :)

That was amazingly hilarious. I think you just made my day go from crappy to win.

"You cannot take this food." Teal'c grabbed the box from Daniel's hands and handed it to a startled child who happened to be passing by. He eyed SG-1 sternly. "Trix are for children."
Oh, Teal'c ♥

You have to wonder all the kids of things he's explored since coming to Earth :)

Thanks for reading!
Rigel: teal'crigel_7 on October 22nd, 2007 07:41 am (UTC)
Heee! Magically delicious!

Such a funny and sweet Teal'c moment!

Thanks! :)

::laughs and laughs and laughs and laughs::

Teal'c is NOT going to be happy once Daniel finally gets a chance to explain that advertising proproganda isn't any more real than the stuff Apophis used to tell him... :)

Kerri, this was perfect!
Working for the Mandroid: Steadfastmoonshayde on October 22nd, 2007 12:00 pm (UTC)
No kidding. That would probably be the turning point when it comes to Teal'c and Tau'ri culture. I would figure he would be much more selective after that.

But in the meantime, whee!

I'm glad you enjoyed.

I love Teal'c reading the boxes literally. That's awesome. And I sense he's about to be introduced to ice cream. Hooray! Cute!
Working for the Mandroid: Pleasedmoonshayde on October 22nd, 2007 11:57 am (UTC)
Oh, ice cream! Hooray for ice cream!

I'm glad that you enjoyed :)

everything Teal'c learned about Tau'ri food he learned from Saturday morning cartoons.

There you go! Perfect title for a sequel. You should write it ;)

Also, I totally blame you for the Sam/Daniel/Vala idea I have.
jessm78: hairsprayjessm78 on October 23rd, 2007 09:56 pm (UTC)
Oh, I really loved this! I could just hear Teal'c saying "I have been informed that they are magically delicious" and "Trix are for children" in his stoic, serious, early-season voice. LOL. Oh, if only this had been a real scene in a random S1 ep, hee hee.

I wish there were more fics of this theme. Very nice job! :)
Working for the Mandroid: Like Mindsmoonshayde on October 23rd, 2007 10:58 pm (UTC)
Thanks! These are my fave types of Teal'c fics. My fave! I'm so glad that you enjoyed it :)

Heh, Teal'c has spent some quality time with the television advertisements, I see.

Marvelous. Grand voices, for everyone.

Wow, the danger of advertising... heh!
