Atlantis has never seen colors, only light and wavelengths of light, and she’s never quite gotten the hang of calling something green.
Because if Rodney says it’s green, then Radek says it’s blue, and Cadman calls it orange (although Atlantis is relatively certain that she’s kidding), and John says it’s teal; which is neither blue nor green, yet both. Colors swarm in probability clouds and the math is just too much to handle.
So when Lorne asks her if she’s feeling blue, she chalks it up to the quantum idiosyncrasies of meat and tells him that she’s feeling purple instead.
