Biers leans in over Six's sideways head, causing Six and Baltar both to jerk upright, hilariously. "It's gonna be lovely, isn't it? A place to relax and collect your thoughts. How are you doing?" Pay close attention to the emergent structures behind everything Biers says, ever: the Starship Troopers stuff in her Patriotic Handjob Video was not a mistake. She's just said: "The future of Cylontology is quite rosy. I hope you're not going crazy yet, given that this place holds tons of meaning and guilt for you. Is it making you nuts, by any chance?" Six admits that she's "a little stiff," and Biers considers her probingly. Six extemporizes that she's having trouble learning to control the new body: "Even after all this time, I still feel awkward." Nine months is a long time, Blondie, is the message: "I was a klutz, too. Always knocking things over. Forever tripping over things." Biers sits with Six, all casual and friendly, flipping her hair like they're just girlfriends. "And you know what? You get over it." Or else. The three of them, Gaius now on Biers's other side, all cross their legs at the knee at the exact same time, in the exact same direction. It's adorable. I miss when Chip Six got to have fun like this. Ever since Gina, she's been way hardcore. Biers goes on: "And you know what, this is a great chance to cleanse. You got a new body, a new life. And anything that you've built up, like anxieties or remorse or guilt, just let it wash away." Or else. By "opportunity," she means "necessity on pain of death." Six responds to the extrinsic comfort: "I can't tell you how thankful I am. You've been a really big help to me." But Biers pshaws: "No, it's me who's thankful. We all are. You are a war hero!" So act like it! Oh, did that bother you? Six's face falls, slightly. "We could not have won without you," Biers insists. A Doral approaches, as if on cue, to tell Six what an honor it is to have her back with them on Caprica: "What you did...well, it's inspiring." She thanks him, he smiles and turns away, and she is pensive and anxious. "Go me," she thinks.
