"Wait-wait, hold on a minute would you--" Rodney grabbed for the piece of ancient technology he'd left on the floor next to the partially disassembled console, but John was just a hair faster. The team leader dodged backwards as Rodney followed after him with a glare.

"What, like we can't tell you're stalling?" John grinned and waved the still dormant doodad admonishingly at the scientist. "You're just hoarding it because it's shiny aren't you."

"Ha, if I was going to stall, I'd come up with something more-- hey don't touch that!" Rodney yelped as John eyed the slot in the ancient console that the doodad apparently fit into. "It's not done yet!"

"What, this?" John gestured innocently at the slot with the doodad, and grinned as Rodney glared at him. "It's been, what, an hour? You know Carter would have had this done--"

"You can't rush genius! Besides she would have put together wrong, now give that back." Rodney made another, unsuccessful, grab at the doodad.

John held the device up out of the scientist's reach, "Finders keepers, isn't that what you told Kavanagh?"

"You didn't find it, you took it!" Rodney snapped, "And did you really want me to let him have something that suspends time, because we all know how 'lucky' the SGC has been with infinite time loops."

"I dunno, could be sort of fun to learn Latin..."

"GIVE ME THAT!"

Ronon and Teyla watched their teammates bicker from the safety of the far end of the newly discovered lab. While Teyla was confident she had understood the concept of 'surprise party' and the need for a short delay in their return; she was beginning to wonder if this was what Elizabeth had meant by 'slight hindrance.'
