The answer gives Lambert pause, but only because of surprise, brows raising as the humor fades from his face. It's not so much the act of Childermass shooting Strange -- he has the dire suspicion Childermass would do that or worse if it had a conceivable purpose that he wanted to achieve -- as that he'd let himself be manipulated into something like that.
Then again, if Lambert had been able to give Childermass to indulge at the Carnival so easily, maybe the man's mental defenses aren't so formidable as his scowl.
It is, however, entirely unsurprising he wouldn't talk about it, and Lambert can't help snorting as Strange rushes in to defend his fellow magician's impugned honor. Childermass keeping things to himself? Say it isn't so. There are, however, more practical concerns to the revelation. Namely:
"So it could happen again, and we wouldn't even know what to look for. Who else was taken, can you remember?"
