Sam had arrived back from Washington early that morning. She was humming softly to herself when Daniel ran into her on their way to SG-1's meeting with General Landry.

"Hey, Daniel."

"Hey… So… How was DC?" Not that he needed to ask. Relaxed wasn't the word he would have used to describe Sam before her trip.

She smiled. "Great, thanks."

"Catch anything?"

She rolled her eyes, groaning at the cliché, yet her smile grew still brighter. "Yeah, sure. Ya betcha," she answered with a wink.

Laughing himself, finding happiness in that of his friends, Daniel followed Sam into the briefing.
