Never read a Tale of Two Cites, you'll be abducted

SCIFI.COM | Stargate Atlantis

In the case of the last episode of SGA: Home, it was a War and Peace. I've noticed that in the world of science fiction that cute guys and thick books equals alien abduction or manipulation. The aliens will mostly likely try to create a fake environment from you memories but they will get things wrong.

These two episodes both used A Tale of Two Cites:
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine - Extreme Measures
Earth: Final Conflict - In Memory

Other episodes with similar themes:
Farscape - A Human Reaction

There are more of these themed episodes out there. The only thing different about the SGA: Home episode is that the War and Peace book was never mentioned again or used as proof that there was "something going on". I'm glad.
