Galactica's lab. Baltar stares into a microscope while Six rubs his shoulders. Then she grumps, "Look what the cat dragged in," as Boomer enters. Baltar greets Boomer, and smarms that she looks wonderful. Six gives Baltar a dirty look. Boomer closes the door and says that she needs Baltar's help. Six asks, "Wonder why they call her 'Boomer'?" Boomer mentions hearing that Baltar's working on a Cylon detector. Baltar is his usual suave self as he says that if he were, he couldn't talk about it. He quickly changes the subject, and asks if Boomer would "settle a bet" by explaining her callsign. Personally, it always reminds me of Here's Boomer. Boomer ignores these weighty issues and asks if she could be in the first batch of people Baltar tests. Six hisses, "What's her rush?" Baltar parrots Six's question, and adds that if he had a Cylon detector, it wouldn't be appropriate of him to "play favorites" when testing people. Boomer gets about as riled up as she's capable of, pointing out that she brought Baltar back from Caprica, and that he owes her. Six does a slow clap at that, losing twenty coolness points and invalidating her warranty. If the Cylons were truly superior, they would rather self-destruct that do a slow clap. Baltar admits that Boomer has a point, and paces a bit. Six calmly encourages Baltar to run the test: "Results will be quite intriguing." Baltar tells Boomer that the detector isn't ready for "full-scale implementation." Six shoots him a look, and a cowed Baltar admits that he could use Boomer as a test subject. Ooo, we're going to neutron the little bastard!
Caprica. Helo is sleeping. Boomer puts her fingers gently over his throat.
Still Caprica. Leisure Suit Larry and Six stroll about in the woods. Six complains, "Sharon's late." Larry asks why he's calling her "Sharon" now. Six says, "Because it's really freaking confusing having two characters called 'Boomer' running around, and I'm trying to make this a little easier to talk about." Not really. Six toys with a swing set -- oh, I guess it's more of a park than "woods," technically. Anyway, Six sneers, "Yeah, well, I choose to think of her as one of them." Larry asks if Six dislikes Boomer, and Six sits on the swing and says, "In the scheme of things, we are as we do. She acts like one of them, thinks like them...she is one of them." Larry sniffs, "But she's one of us. It would be best to remember that." On cue, Boomer arrives, and Six hops of the swing and goes over to her. Boomer reports, "We had sex." Larry says, "Congratulations." Heh. He's growing on me. Six asks Boomer if Helo loves her. Boomer thinks so, but has to admit that he hasn't said it explicitly. Six scornfully says, "Then you're just guessing." Larry tells Boomer that she and Helo should stay where they are: "We're setting up a cabin for you nearby -- food, water, electricity, all the comforts." Six says that Boomer should be able to convince Helo that they should "start a life together." She adds that if Helo's not into shacking up, Boomer should kill him. Six asks, "Can you handle that?" Larry and Six stare at Boomer. Without answering, Boomer finally turns and walks away through the woods. Park. Whatever.
