In the Galactica Tool Room, the two crews are drinking moonshine. Vireem, apparently, toasts everybody, and for a second he's really quite good-looking. Everybody drinks, and Chief asks Laird where the Blackbird went. Laird calls Starbuck "Lieutenant Thrace," which you never hear, and says he was told that Cain wanted a performance check. Chief has questions about this total lie, for which Laird was unprepared because he's never dealt with Starbuck before, but another of the Pegasus crew starts yelling about how much booze rules. "This place is a fracking party!" he screams, and Vireem pipes up, "Oh, I heard you guys even got yourselves a Cylon. Heard she's a hot one, too." The boozehound one, Gage, gets pretty lewd at this point, doing a vulgar dance, and they start up with that gang-rapist homoeroticism bullshit that I will never understand, except to say, "Occam's Razor, guys," so they don't notice Helo's face. You know the one. They keep going on and on about how they're looking forward to raping Boomer. Cally and some female techs are grossed out and angry -- I wonder the percentage on how much that has to do with Boomer and how much has to do with what happened to Cally on the Astral Queen. Well, Cally loves Chief too, though, so she's got a lot going on right now. Chief tries to calm them down and shut them the hell up, and Vireem starts joking that Chief must have a "soft spot for the little robot girl."
