    • (Sheppard is about to help Rodney meditate)
      Sheppard: Find a position that works.
      McKay: Right. Ok. (He promptly lies down flat on his back, clasps his hands together and closes his eyes.)
      Sheppard: Fine. Now, I want you to become aware of your breaths, going in and out of your body.
      McKay (softly): In ... and out.
      Sheppard: Do it without talking.
      (Rodney opens his eyes and looks up at him.)
      McKay: Oh…right.
      (He closes his eyes and settles down again.)
      Sheppard: Now, I want you to think about the things that you worry about the most.
      McKay (opening his eyes again): You mean, like death?
      Sheppard: There's no talking. Think of anything that makes you anxious.
      McKay: Oh, God, there's so many things. (He props himself up onto his elbows and looks up at John.) Not talking happens to be one of them, by the way.
      Sheppard (sternly): Deal with it.
