1.) Aww. John glowing over weapons! And Rodney *noticing* indulgently. It's so cute when your boyfriend understands and appreciates your obsessions.
2.) Rodney's blink of shock when John understood the capabiliites of the weapon. I think he completely forgets between episodes that John's not just *pretty*. And I think John deliberately makes sure Rodney forgets, just so he can see him look like that.
3.) All the cute little scientists running aroudn doing their thing. Seriously, if there is one thing that I love to watch, it's the montages of the science team doing their thing. It's just so--fantastic.
4.) Seriously. Rodney says, I am smarter than the Ancients. And John says, okay, I believe that. Rodney's like, trust me. John's nodding agreement with his cute little, McKay is a god of all things scientific look. He also hasn't shaven. Sometimes, God really is kind to me.
5.) John protecting Rodney from himself. *Of course* he does. All glowy and confident and my God, John, *breathe now*.
6.) Pretty much anytime Rodney goes into obsessive mode, which is ninty-five percent of the ep. That is hot. And I almost mean this in a platonic way, except I really just think, this would be even better if he was somewhat naked. Hell, stripped to a t-shirt. I'd be happy.
7.) John's little fighter plane analogy. That was adorable.
8.) And this may be just me--but while Ronan and Teyla came back from doing--what did they do, I fast forwarded--you can hear the background argument between Rodney and Elizabeth. That was *great*. I want to sit down and listen to see if I can hear it all.
9.) John and Rodney's little chat in the hall and on the way to the transporter. Rodney *running* to catch up. He saved him for last. Of course. I hope you won't lose faith in me. John's--gah. I have no way to express that ending other than with deep love. Deep, deep love. That was *perfect*.
10.) And this is just to bring it up to ten, since pretty much *eveyr other scene* with John and Rodney was my favorite--I love this show so much.
That is all. I am going to *squee myeslf into a coma* real quick, kay?
Okay, I admit it, this is my new obsessive fandom. That means icons. I must hunt them up.
