Which is why John, who starts out visibly not caring about what Rodney has to say for himself, actually humoring him.

* Rodeney Mckay of all people gets one during the Genii invasion of Atlantis mid-season one. When Kolya threatens to kill Dr. Weir, he doesn't hesitate to step between her and the gun. His realization of what he's just done is pretty funny in itself [[spoiler: luckily he manages to argue their worth to Kolya and nobody gets shot, but it was pretty close]]

--> '''[=McKay=]''': I've already apologized to Elizabeth. And Radek, and... And I thanked Colonel Caldwell for caring enough to, uh, spy on the experiment from orbit. Sent him a nice little email, actually. But I saved you to last, 'cause, um... Honestly I would... I would hate to think that recent events might have permanently... dimmed you faith in my abilities... or your trust. And the very least I hope I can... I can earn that back.

Added DiffLines:

** During the siege at the end of Season 1, Colonel Everett arrives from Earth and takes control of Atlantis, completely cutting Elizabeth out of the command circle. So John immediately refuses to co-operate with Everett until he acknowledges Elizabeth's authority and the respect she earned from everyone in the city...including John himself. Bear in mind John is already in a very vulnerable position as the military previously exiled him to Antarctica because of a black mark and he only assumed command of Atlantis because pity-killed Colonel Sumner. But he doesn't hesitate to stick his neck out for Elizabeth's sake.
*** Then you have Elizabeth's reciprocating loyalty in Season 2 when General Landry tries to replace John as military commander of Atlantis. She basically tells him to screw it and that John will be remaining her second in command even if she has to call in every one of her connections and get him promoted to do it. After a year watching the pair become leaders together and put everything on the line to defend their city it's incredibly heartwarming to see them protect each other's backs from other forces as well.

Added DiffLines:

* A combined fleet of Earth warships, [[EnemyMine Wraith Hives]] and [[AloofAlly Traveler craft]] joins up for a major attack on the Asuran homeworld. Acknowledged in-universe. Even [[SeenItAll Carter]] and Caldwell are moved by the sight of the unlikely alliance.


* "Sateda" oddly enough, after Carson [[spoiler:saves Ronon by killing the Wraith that was attacking him]] knowing full well that Ronon would most likely be very angery. After Ronon is safe and asks who ''interupted'' his fight, [=McKay=] immediatly points to Carson, who is very terrifed of what Ronon may do to him. [[spoiler:Ronon gives him a man-hug and says thanks... Much to everyones surprise]].

Added DiffLines:

* The final shot of the season 5 episode 'Outsiders', with [[spoiler: Carson]] and Rodney walking out of medical to get lunch together. Its just nice to see them back to normal, with Rodney finally having his best friend back.


** The fact that me made sure to check he wasn't about to just erase a 'badge of honour' before healing Ronon's back makes this moment that much more special, as it shows he really does have a respect and understanding of Ronon's nature, and could see how he might view those scars as a mark of pride of his defiance against the Wraith.
