Change the baseline of \cite temporarily?

I'm using the cite package with the superscript argument (i.e. ref1). However, in some points in the document I'd like to temporarily switch the cite style to on-line (i.e. ref [1]).

Is this possible?

Edit: If I have this document

\documentclass[a4paper,oneside,11pt]{report}
\usepackage[superscript,nospace,nobreak]{cite} %Citations in superscript

\begin{document}
%Citation in superscript
See reference \cite{exampleItem}
%Citation on same line?
See reference on-same-line \cite{exampleItem}

\begin{thebibliography}{9}
\bibitem{exampleItem}
John Doe,
A Book
Publisher
Edition,
1994.
\end{thebibliography}

\end{document}


Right now both lines will output See reference1, whereas I would like to be able to change the citation style to See reference [1] for the second line. Then revert to the superscript style for the rest of the document.

Although this is slightly hacky, it works. In case you want a cleaner solution, have a look at package natbib: http://merkel.zoneo.net/Latex/natbib.php.

\documentclass[a4paper,oneside,11pt]{report}
\usepackage[superscript,nospace,nobreak]{cite} %Citations in superscript

% Redefine the string before the optional note to be blank
\renewcommand\citemid{}

\begin{document}
%Citation in superscript
See reference \cite{exampleItem}

%Citation on same line
See reference on-same-line \cite[]{exampleItem}

\begin{thebibliography}{9}
\bibitem{exampleItem}
John Doe,
A Book
Publisher
Edition,
1994.
\end{thebibliography}

\end{document}


Output:
