In the Stargate SG-1 episode "Threads", Oma Desala appears as a waitress in a diner. She calls out orders to the cook in diner lingo, much of it going by rather quickly. What are all the diner lingo items she calls for, and what is the lay-speak for each of those items?

    Could you show us the words in question? At least find a clip that we can hear? – terdon Jun 20 '15 at 14:02
  • I haven't seen the episode, but this online dictionary of diner lingo should have your answer. – Joe L. Jun 20 '15 at 15:08

The line was:

OMA: Excuse me. Frank, I need a Noah's boy in a blanket, two hens fruit wrecked on a shingle with a mystery in the alley, a warm Eve with a moldy lid, and two checkerboards, alright? [She tears off the order and pins it over the counter] Oh yeah, hold the pig.

Noah's boy: Slice of ham
