Sharon gets out of her Raptor and the Marine with her uses the word "enfilade," as in, "We could catch enfilade fire from there, there, and along there." (In short, the word "enfilade" as used here means "shot in all of our faces"; that is, if they all walked in a line the enemy fire could shoot through all of them from the front or back, like a skewer, which is where the word comes from. It's nice for the toasters, or whoever is shooting at you that way, because the up/down angle determines that you can't shoot too long or too tight, because you're going to hit somebody no matter what, if your target is centered down the skewer. Use it in a sentence this week! Mine is going to be, "We have to go see The Covenant on a weekday, because I'm going to feel like a perv if we go in and get a bunch of teenagers coming at us in enfilade. Oh yeah? Vide please the great Mean Girls incident, April '04, and the Bring It On conflict of August 2000. I ain't going out like that again.") Sharon puts the Marines on the ridge and heads out to the rendezvous point, bringing us back to the PRESENT. ("Go Panthers!" "C-Bucks rule!")
At Pergamus Flats, PROBABLY ABOUT FIVE MINUTES AGO, Chief stares through the binoculars at the trucks approaching, and sends his men to the corresponding ridge. "This is it. Lock and load." Chief finally notices that they've got Laura Roslin and Tom Zarek with them, proving that he didn't even read the list beyond Cally's name. Which is kinda Duck of him, frankly, considering the emphasis put on the whole "Read the names! Look at the names!" issue last week with Gaeta and Gaius. Seelix hates to see focus pulled from precious Cally as much as we all do: "Is there any sign of Cally?" Sadly, there is not.
