'medical operation'

and O'Neill says:

'It's surgical...'

I believe this is from the Season 1 finale, titled "Within the serpent's grasp". This is either episode 22, or it is sometimes numbered as episode 21, depending on whether the double-length opener is counted as one or two episodes.

The exchange runs as:

Teal'c: If the coordinates are for a Goa'uld world which is not on the Abydos cartouche, the Goa'uld will most likely not expect us. I believe a medical attack could be successful.

Jack O'Neill: Surgical attack, Teal'c. It's called a surgical attack.

  • yes that is it :D

    It depends on if you count the pilot/opener as one or two episodes. It is sometimes broadcast as two because of schedules.

    @SAJW Yes, it is numbered differently in different sites, so I've added an explanation. The episode title is unambiguous though Commented Mar 17, 2022 at 21:31
