Starbuck nods, and Leoben's dunked. When he's hauled out this time, the soldiers let him flop onto the floor, and he kind of reminds me of that fish at the end of the "Epic" video. Leoben gasps, "I have a soul. I see patterns." He says that Starbuck is damaged: "You were born to a woman who believes that suffering was good for the soul, so you suffered." Starbuck stares down as the Cylon tells her that "life is a testament to pain, injuries, accidents." He stares up at her from the floor and says that's what her mother taught her: "You wanna believe it because it means that you're bad luck. Like a cancer that needs to be removed. Because you hear her voice every day and you want her to be right." Starbuck listens intently, and then looks up at the soldiers and quietly says, "Start again." Leoben's hauled up and dunked, and this time we get a bucket-cam shot of his face underwater. He struggles and makes faces for a few seconds, and then stops moving and smiles into the camera. Okay, this time I'm cool with actors staring into the camera, because it's meant to be disconcerting. I think.
The lab. Baltar puts a slide into a doohicky and tells Boomer that now they just have to wait for the results. He says that if the readout on the monitor will turn green or red to indicate whether she's a human or a Cylon. I bet he'd have finished the detector a week ago if he hadn't decided to program the thing to flash colors instead of giving him a simple text readout. Baltar says that the results will take a few minutes, and makes another attempt to chat Boomer up by asking where she's from. Boomer says she's from Troy, which Baltar thinks sounds vaguely familiar. Boomer reminds him that it was a mining settlement, and references "the accident." Baltar nods, "The explosion, right." He tells her, "That was tragic," with wonderfully false sympathy, and confirms that her family was killed in the unspecified disaster. Cue Six, who wraps her arms around Baltar's shoulder and says, "It's a lie." She directs Baltar's attention to the monitor and congratulates him on finding his very first Cylon. Baltar stares at the red flashing light and hits some keys as Six observes that this is an interesting moment for him. Boomer can't see the monitor, but she does notice Baltar's sudden change in mood, so she asks if everything's okay. Baltar stammers that he's "interpolating the results." A concerned Boomer says, "I thought it was just green or red." Baltar nervously replies that it's more complicated than that, and continues typing. While Baltar pauses to gnaw on his fingers, Six wonders how Boomer will react to the news: "I'm guessing [that] her Cylon side will take over and break your neck before you can give away her secret. Let's find out!" Boomer hits a few more keys, and the red lights suddenly turn green. Baltar spreads his arms out and congratulates Boomer on her humanity. "It's very bright green," he assures her. Heh. Boomer grins and admits that she was a little bit worried for second. Baltar chuckles, "Were you?" like he's hosting a game show. He says that Boomer "couldn't be more human," and escorts her to the door. Boomer thanks him happily, and exits.
