Stargate SG-1 Easter Egg - A Pain in the What?

There's one season 3 Stargate episode called Dead Man's Switch, which features our intrepid heroes being captured by an alien bounty hunter named Aris Boch. One by one, he explains to them all individually why the Goa'uld want them dead. Lastly, he informs Jack O'Neill that the Goa'uld want him dead because "Frankly, you're just a pain in the mitka."
Jack looks at Daniel for translation, saying, "Neck?"
"No," says Daniel blandly, and everyone knows immediately what 'mitka' means. But what's the twist on this? The director of this episode was called Andy Mitka! A subtle reference to what the writers thought of him...

Actually the director of this episode was Martin Wood. Also, the director you mentioned is actually Andy Mikita, not Mikta!

If he said skrit'na, like someone else said, then it could also be seen as a clever allusion to the animorphs books
