1.

Sheppard's still trying to find Ford. Lorne's not sure that's exactly a secret, but the star chart with possible sightings recorded on it probably is. Lorne found it buried in a sub-folder of the military admin drive, labeled 'interplanetary migration of wooly mammoths,' which isn't the greatest cover ever, but then, no-one but Lorne and Sheppard ever get that deep into the admin files. If Sheppard's noticed that Lorne's added three possible sightings, he hasn't mentioned it yet.

2.

Sheppard's sleeping with Cameron Mitchell, and they're neither of them as careful about keeping it a secret as they should be. Which is how Lorne knows: there's not a lot of room for misinterpretation in the way they look at each other whenever Sheppard's leaving Earth.

3.

When the rest of his team were kidnapped on P3J 726, Sheppard traded the location of an ex-Genii they'd helped repatriate in order to get them back. Everyone knows he did something extreme, because he came back through the gate looking worse than the rest of his team, but Lorne's the only one who saw Sheppard at the computer and got curious. He's pretty sure Sheppard's team don't know what he did, and Lorne wants to tell Sheppard, just so he doesn't have to carry the secret all on his own, but he's afraid of what his face would like look while he did.

4.

Sheppard started keeping lemon cookies in the bottom drawer of his desk when they all came back after being evicted by the Ancients. The packets are never opened, though they're always replaced before they might start going moldy, and Lorne honestly has no idea what to make of it. Given McKay's very vocal citrus allergy, he can't believe they don't have some kind of significance, but he's got no clue what it might be.

5.

Sheppard's been emailing his brother with every databurst since his father's funeral. Lorne doesn't know that he's the only other person who knows this, and he doesn't know that Sheppard would be upset to find out that Lorne knows, because Sheppard doesn't want anyone to know how much he regrets losing touch. All Lorne knows is that, halfway through the week in which they were down a computer and sharing, he nudged the mouse to turn the screen saver off and found an email starting, Hi Dave, thanks for the pictures. Your girls got mom's hair, huh? At which point he got up and went to bug Zelenka about increasing the jumpers' top speed, because for all the things he knew without meaning to, it was nice to have something he didn't know.
