CIC. Gaeta reports that jump #238 is complete. Tigh tells him to restart the clock, and leans wearily on the console. Dualla starts to report that all civilian ships are accounted for, and then takes it back. One ship is missing: the Olympic Carrier. Adama asks whether the Carrier was left behind when the fleet jumped. Dualla says, "I think I accounted for all civilian ships before we left --" "You think?" Tigh interrupts. "Did you or didn't you?" Dualla checks her monitors and admits that the ship may be been left behind. Adama asks how many people were aboard, and Dualla says, "1,345 souls, Sir." Tigh gets irate, but Gaeta smoothly suggests that there could have been a navigational error aboard the Carrier, or the ship may have been destroyed by the Cylons. Tigh grrs that they don't know what happened. He loudly declares, "Yes, we're tired. Yes, there's no relief. Yes, the Cylons keep coming after us, time after time, after time. And yes, we are still expected to do our jobs!" I like him with a beard. I mean, he's just got scruff right now, but he'd look good with a beard. And an eyepatch. And maybe a hook. What? The crewmen look abashed for a moment, and Adama more quietly says, "We make mistakes, people die. There aren't many of us left." With that, he tells Dualla to carry on.
Colonial One. Billy updates the Whiteboard of Extinction to 47,972. I keep wishing he'd put a smiley face in the circle of the 9 or something. Just to lighten things up a little. Billy sits down at the desk, and the Prez mopes at the Whiteboard briefly before asking what the next crisis is. Billy says, "List of calls." The Prez asks what happened to her meeting with Dr. Amarak. Back at his seat, Baltar pretends to be deeply interested in reading some octagonal paper as he turns sideways in his seat to eavesdrop. Billy looks at some paperwork of his own and, after a moment, tells the Prez that Amarak was aboard the Carrier.
Baltar's head falls back and thumps into the patio furniture he's sitting in at the domicylon. Six strolls past and says, "God is watching out for you, Gaius." Baltar huffs that the universal is so complicated that "coincidental, serendipitous events are bound to occur. Indeed, they're to be expected." Six argues, "Dr. Amarak posed a threat to you. Now he's gone. Logic says there's a connection." No it doesn't! Especially if the person who conveniently disappears is doing something dangerous like, y'know, fleeing from implacable robot enemies. Baltar, unfortunately, skips that point and simply argues that even if there is a connection, that doesn't prove that God exists: "There are no large, invisible men -- or women, for that matter -- in the sky, taking a personal interest in the fortunes of Gaius Baltar." Hey, he's a Carlin fan. That's cool. Six harrumphs, "Be careful. That which God gives, He can also take away." Baltar stares at her.
