On Earth they sent flowers to signify love, condolences, and a hundred other things. On Atlantis GT5 sends candy.

The colors are the same, red for love, green for good fortune, yellow for friendship and orange for passion. Purple is for sorrow; tempered with yellow or red becomes a candy condolence slipped across the table by a friend. Blue, a subtle proposition, easily accepted or passed by. A shared language of Skittles and M&Ms, scavenged from the various MREs.

And they don’t quite laugh when Rodney and John, clueless as ever, argue if blue Jell-O is inherently better than red.
