1.

Colonel Mitchell admits with more equanimity that Teal'c would have expected from him, to knowing that he would not have done well "cooped up" on the ship. And so it is not precisely a secret that on more than one occasion he ran to the point of collapse, usually at Teal'c's door. Regardless, it does not seem right to share the memory of what Colonel Mitchell will likely see as weakness, when it can surely serve no purpose.

2.

It took ten years to teach all four of them, but he has several memories of sitting in peace and harmony with his team at kel'no'reem. Although General Landry, perhaps rightly, would never join them, the calm seemed to extend to all of them, for several days. Teal'c is unsure why he does not suggest they resume the practice on Earth, when he is certain that they would all agree to it. He does not like to think it is nothing but fear of ruining the memory.

3.

Colonel Carter was the one to wonder what would happen at the SGC once their disappearance was confirmed. "Do you think they'll bring Jack back?" she asked, her eyes clear of any of the longing Teal'c had so often seen there when she spoke of him. "Perhaps," he said simply, which seemed to satisfy her. He wishes quite strongly, when they return, to tell her that she would be happier if she was to let go of the last of her hope, but it is not for him to say such things. Besides, it is clear, when she returns from Atlantis, that she has already arrived at the same conclusion.

4.

Dr Jackson and Vala mal'Doran's relationship is something which he suspects they would not be surprised to learn of, and Teal'c spends some time contemplating whether he would tell them of it, should they ever find their way there again. He will never tell them of the argument he overheard about the right of bringing a child into the contained world in which they lived. Neither will he tell them that it was Vala mal'Doran who spoke of a child as hope, despite what transpired for her previous child.

5.

He knows that Colonel Mitchell sleeps on his back when he sleeps alone, and with his back pressed to his partner when he is not. He knows that Colonel Mitchell does not like to be held down, and that he will happily spend many hours simply in kissing. He knows that Colonel Mitchell does not cope well with being alone, and that he does, in some way, love Teal'c. He will never tell Colonel Mitchell any of this, because he also knows that, given the chance, Colonel Mitchell would not have chosen him with whom to grow old and almost die.
