By turning up one Friday morning with chocolate cake and birthday candles. "Um," Sam said, slapping Cam's hand away from the icing. "Did we miss something?"

"Clearly," Vala said haughtily. "Today is Dr Lam's birthday."

"Really?" Cam asked.

"Yes, Cameron, really." She dropped the haughty tone for a moment. "You really didn't know that?"

Cam and Sam looked at each other, then shook their heads. "I can't believe you did," Sam said.

"I'm a woman of hidden depths," Vala said, sweeping out with her cake.


By walking through a literal cave of literal treasure and out the other side with nothing that she hadn't gone in with.

"What?" she said when Daniel gave her a suspicious look.

"Where did you hide it?" he asked.

"I'm hurt that you'd suggest such a thing," she said. "Really Daniel, I don't have a compulsion."

"Could have fooled me," Cam muttered, but she really didn't have anything. It took them three weeks to stop asking what was special about that planet.


By bringing a beginners' French text book along to a twelve hour briefing about the possibility of disclosing the stargate program to the people of Earth.

"We're discussing possibly the biggest revelation ever to hit Earth," Cam said, slouching next to her and balancing a notepad on his knees. "And you brought a book."

"In fairness," Sam said, sitting on her other side and booting up her laptop, "We have this meeting every couple of years, it's pretty much just an excuse for the IOA to get us all together and talk at us."

"Also," Vala said, cracking open the book, "I feel like I need to learn. Bonjour, Monsieur Mitchell."


By turning out, when she was missing for two weeks and Sam went by her apartment to take in the mail, to have three house rabbits roaming around.

"Rabbits," Cam said when she told him and Teal'c. "House rabbits and Vala."

"I'm sure she does an admirable job of caring for them," Teal'c said.

Cam looked at him, then shook his head. "You're not surprised by this. You knew."

"Yes. She asked me to care for them should she be absent."

Sam dropped her head into her hands, not sure if she wanted to laugh or cry.


By walking into Cam's backyard, where the team was gathered for Daniel's birthday, hand in hand with Carolyn Lam.

Sam hugged them both in greeting, and, when Vala hugged Teal'c, he embraced Carolyn as well, who blushed and smiled.

"This is why you brought a birthday cake for her," Cam said, half-amused, half-accusing.

"Actually, the birthday cake is why I slept with her," Carolyn corrected, which made Daniel laugh, though mainly at Cam's dance of too-much-information.
