Teyla was oddly glad for Rodney’s presence, his startled yelps and uncensored reactions to her social missteps were easily interpreted.

“Ack! Clothes! Go put on clothes!” accompanied by flustered hand-waving was far easier to understand than John’s averted gaze and embarrassed flushing, or Elizabeth attempted tactful explanation of why swimming required clothing.
