Baltar looks around as the other passengers doze. Six leans toward him and cheerily asks, "Do you want children, Gaius?" Baltar looks back and forth from her to the front of the ship as he says, "Let me think about that for a minute. No." Six looks puzzled as she notes that "procreation is one of God's commandments." Baltar continues staring straight ahead as he suggests, "I'm sure someday, if you're a good Cylon, he'll reward you with a lovely little walking toaster of your very own." Six harrumphs that she wants to have a child with Baltar. Baltar says that she can't be serious. At the front of the ship, Billy tells the Prez, "It's Dr. Amarak." Baltar immediately asks, "What was that?" He looks around, and Six is gone. Baltar apologizes for interrupting and wanders up to the Prez's desk. Billy, bemused, says that a Dr. Amarak has asked to speak with the Prez. Off Baltar's reaction, the Prez asks if he knows Amarak. Six asks, "Have you always been able to multitask like this?" Hee. Baltar says "Yes," to Six, and then turns to the Prez to add, "I used to work with him at the Ministry of Defense." Small end-of-the-world. Billy consults his notes and says that Amarak claims to have uncovered important information about how the Cylons defeated their defense systems. I still think it's a little weird that this guy called, said, "I've got important information about security," and they basically filled out a little "While you were out" note and said they'd be in touch. I know they're busy, but still. Ah well. Six tells Baltar, "I was always a little worried he was on to us." Baltar says, "Were you?" Then, to the Prez: "...going to speak to him?" He offers to chat with Amarak if the Prez is too busy, but the Prez makes some "whoa" gestures as Billy says that Amarak asked to speak directly to the Prez. Six plants the seed of a paranoia from which a mighty oak will grow, and suggests that Amarak might want to tell the Prez about "a certain traitor in the President's inner circle?" Baltar blinks nervously and rubs his throat. The Prez says that she'd like Amarak to come over for a chat after the next jump. She adds a little thank-you to Baltar, presumably to dismiss him. Baltar nods like a bobble-head as Six says, "I'd say you have a serious problem." Baltar nods a little more and mutters, "If I can help...," and then does a double-take and follows Six out the compartment. The Prez says, "He's a strange one, isn't he?" Billy coo-coos in response. Heh.
