So that episode.



I refuse to be analytical or interesting. I will, however, make a numbered list of squee.

Squee.

1.) I like Dr. Kaylee. Yes, I'm sure she has another name. I'll learn it later. She is adorable. I am pleased.

2.) I just got to see a phalanx of jumpers playing Asteroid. If there is something more awesome than that, I cannot imagine what it is.

3.) Wait. Rodney called him John. I don't even know what to do with that. Rodney called him John! I can repeat that for like, ever. Wait. I will.

Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!

Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!

I'll stop now. Though I don't want to, really.

Er, I have no idea what number I was on.

4.) Zelenka's continuing dislike of things that take him from the lab. You know, now that I was ever doubting, but I can kind of see another reason that Rodney was chosen Chief Science Officer. On the other hand, he did his job and that space jump was just freaking awesome.

5.) Ronon/Elizabethness. I just--I never expected to see it. But there it is. With Ronon watching her brought in with a worried look, then going to talk to her and I have no words because oh my God. Thank you. To whatever shipper diety watches over ships. Wow. Yes.

6.) You know, I'm beginning to wonder if it's something about John, that he can stand there with a perfectly calm face and project intense grief. That was--I thought he was going to cry. When Rodney was doing his near-death experience, yeah, but this was--all focused and it *hurt*. I felt like crying for him.

7.) Rodney's "I'm sorry" (has this ever happened? He didn't even say that after Trinity, did he?) and John's instant cave-in. He tried, I saw him try, but no. It was--very beautiful. It was very--seriously. Wow. His mouth.

*squints* You know, Sheppard has a very nice mouth.

8.) I forget. Did I mention...

Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!
Rodney called him John!

Yeah. Just checking.

9.) PHALANX OF JUMPERS! Yes, I'm repeating myself. It bears repeating.

10.) So I'm thinking Elizabeth the Partial Replicator is going to figure into The Great Replicator Heist.

11.) The Great Replicator Heist. I--would like to say more than that, but I can't get over Rodney's glee--of course John wants a heist. That's like asking if the sun will rise somewhere in the universe. And of course Rodney is all over it. They're like--they're like the personification of Disasterous Yet Strangely Workable Mischief. Let's go check out this Wraith ship! Let's go decomputerize a whole bunch of ships! Let's go take over Atlantis from the Replicators! Let's cross that out on our Big List of Really Cool Shit to Do! Which they have. On there is also Joyride in an Asgard Cruiser and Play Hide and Seek With Genii and the universe is like some huge scavenger hunt, isn't it? Possibly with reminders like Remember to pack extra bullets and Bring extra powerbars and This time, have an extra knife.

A Heist. Of course. Of course.

11.) Okay, overall:

Atlantis is the Epitome of the application of Murphy's Law. It just is. There is nothing that doesn't go wrong. Every time. And near the end, they aren't even surprised--they just look blank, sigh, and go back to stare at their laptops for the next Brilliant Idea.

In summmary:

Rodney called him John!



Again, priorities. They are there.


It's called "Adrift."

BTW, did you notice that Rodney called him John?

NO I DID NOT. I MUST SQUEE MORE LOUDLY ABOUT THAT. PERHAPS EVERYWHERE.

I squealed all over my journal. It's just...I love my show SO MUCH! Rodney in the jumper and Ronon with the "thank you, Dr. Weir" and John with the "apology accepted" and just EVERYTHING! Also, from the back? I can totally understand why Chuck can stand in for Joe because they have the same hair!

And RODNEY CALLED HIM JOHN! Made my entire night. JOHN!

OH MY GOD YES. IT WAS SO PERFECT AND AT THE PERFECT TIME! HAPPY!

And millions of fangirls...

were heard throughout the land screaming "Rodney called him JOHN!!!!". Ahem I was, of course, squealing the loudest. And can I say Rodney caving immediately to John's being on top errr..*cough* leader also made me do the happy dance?

Re: And millions of fangirls...

*grins happily*

Hmm, this does, though, explain Casting Spoiler. I did think that Rodney as civilian would take second, but otoh, this is a crisis, so....hmm.

*mulls* In essence, squee continues. It may not stop. Ever.

RODNEY CALLED HIM JOHN!

HE SO DID!

MY HAPPINESS IS PURE.

John's instant cave-in. He tried, I saw him try, but no.

He did try! For all the good it did him. *g*

the personification of Disasterous Yet Strangely Workable Mischief.

BEST. DESCRIPTION. EVER. In conclusion, John.

God. Just--cave. Cave, cave, cave. It's the cutest. Thing. Ever.

Yes. John.

OMG AND THE OTHER THING?

When Rodney nonchalantly mentions that time he got even smarter, and John says, all woobie-faced, "You mean when you almost died?" IT STILL HURTS HIM, PRECIOUS!

ALSO RODNEY CALLED HIM JOHN! *glee*

A Heist. Of course. Of course.

IT'S GOING TO BE OCEAN'S ELEVEN. IN SPACE. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11!!11ELEVENTY!

Um, yay!

IT IS SO GOING TO BE! THEY WILL HEIST AND IT WILL BE BEAUTIFUL.

Let's cross that out on our Big List of Really Cool Shit to Do! Which they have. On there is also Joyride in an Asgard Cruiser and Play Hide and Seek With Genii and the universe is like some huge scavenger hunt, isn't it? Possibly with reminders like Remember to pack extra bullets and Bring extra powerbars and This time, have an extra knife.


I think I would pay you something to write that.


I want someone to write it. It is totally in Rodney's and in John's private files--they totally update it at like, midnight, when Rodney wakes John up with like a "Okay, totally got another one..."

John: ...it's two in the morning.

Rodney: "Okay. Get this one. Jumper flying through a supernova in progress! And there's one only a million miles away! Happening next year!"

John: Add it.

Rodney: *Squeee*

John: *Squeee*

Like that.

Yes, yes, this is all true -cute Dr. Keller and all that- but did you pay attention to minute 26 or so when Rodney casually CALLED HIM JOHN!

Did you notice and re-watch several times the way the rest of us did? Just saying. In case you hadn't noticed.

:D

PS: should that be 'phalanxes'? One phalanx, several phalanxes? I am getting confused now...

...I'm not sure. Phalanx, phalances? *bewildered*

Okay, someone on my flist knows Latin. I'll ask.

I can't remember your spoiler policy, so I'll just say -- there's a still floating around for a future ep to which my *immediate* reaction was, "wow. They want seperis to write more porn." If you heard the Internets call your name? that was it.

...I almost want to ask, but I'll hold off until an ep peeves me and I need the lift in mood.

Though...God. Now I'm pre-squeeing in *hope*.

(Deleted comment)
*grins* They please me. Though It hink my fingers will get tired eventually of typing squee? That time is not yet.

The inside of my head has been almost exactly like this post for days. I would be all frustrated with teaching my kids, and into my head would pop, "Rodney called him John!" and then I was all smiles and bubbles and rainbows and smoothing over tension. I got a flat tire and my roadside service decided I didn't exist anymore, and I was swearing and kicking things, and into my head popped, "Rodney called him John!" and suddenly the world didn't suck.

I love my show.

appropriate priorities...

Rodney called him John!

yes, but...the way he called him John...for emphasis, but they didn't make a big deal of it, either, which they would have if it was the first time he'd said that--I mean, if I'd never called you Jenn before, and all of a sudden I said, "hey, Jenn, really, agree with me already"--you'd stop for a second and say "oh, it's Jenn now that you want me to agree with you..."

I mean you'd point that out, wouldn't you? If not right in the middle of a fraught moment, you'd bring it up later at least in an aside or something...

But they totally let that "John" slide--which means Rodney's been calling him John for a while now...but "offscreen" where they haven't shown us...in Private...(nod nod, wink wink)... Right? Isn't that implied there?

therefore, an even greater cause for squee throughout fandom...

Re: appropriate priorities...

Oh *Yes*.

*glows* So. Much.

when Rodney called him John (it's going to be like the Kennedy thing, isn't it? Where were you when rodney called him John...?) Anyway, when it happened I was sitting in my computer chair and I flailed so much I lost my balance and accidentally SHUT DOWN THE VLC PLAYER!!!

Yes! I stopped the show to post. I was like--OMG HE DID NOT BUT OH GOD HE DID HE DID HE DIDDDD.

It's SGA Kennedy, really.

(Deleted comment)
*dies* I never thought of that, but--yes. Yes, it totally is.

I was so excited I had to stop the video a couple of times to get flap my hands and go OMG OMG OMG.

Ooooh, and John is all hot when he's large and in charge, I think. And also very hot when he's mad. OMG.

He did try not to cave, I saw it too, it was awesome, and then he did that thing with his mouth when he's thinking or disapproving or upset. But it was with himself. And then he scratched the back of his head. Oh John.

I loved his scene with Zelenka. He was so big brothery and knowledgeable and taking care of Radek. It was very cool.

OH GOD YES. THE CAVING MOMENT. That was just--see, this is ILLUSTRATED PROOF of why they are awesome as partners, but neither would do all that well ordering the other around very long. They both know how to use the Look of Puppies. All big eyed and vulnerable and *seeaminotawesome* look and boom.

Oh the cuteness. The eternal cuteness.
