Helo and Chief are still in their cell in the Pegasus brig. The doors on the other side of the glass whoosh open, and Helo closes his eyes exhaustedly. "Looky here. The Sunshine boys are here." By "sunshine," he means "psychotic rapist," by the way. It's the guys who grossed out Cally with their rape talk, Vireem and Gage, and some armed Marine guys as backup. Gage bitches at them about how awesome Thorne was, and calls Chief and Helo "miserable fracks," and Helo demands to be called "sir." Gage obliges, and Vireem -- who you'd think would have figured this out like three episodes ago -- finally figures out why Helo and Chief were so into defending Boomer. He's gross. Right around "filthy little robot girl," which is the least offensive part of what he's saying, Tyrol makes a perfect James-Dean-with-a-migraine face, the one that's so sad and adrenalized, and jumps up: "I'm sorry. I don't think I quite heard that right...Why don't you open the door, come in, and we'll talk about it in here." He fronts at the end there so that they know he's being sarcastic and actually wants them to beat him up. Helo's actually a little surprised that, after everything -- the death sentence and temporary amnesty and all -- these guys are still boring and creepy and macho and crazy and caged enough to come in and do this. They come into the cell with a bunch of guns, and Tyrol and Helo both try to calm the situation down. As they're tying our guys' ankles together and turning them roughly around, Gage again starts with the "sir" stuff: "Don't worry, sir. We'll take it real slow, sir!"
Credits. Yeah. I don't know what it's a testament to, exactly, but for some reason I think it says something about this show that you assumed what you assumed right there. Maybe if you're watching like Oz or even SVU, you might not blink about a little trip to the analrapist every now and then, and it's not so much a selling point per se, but still. It's real. 49,604 souls in the Fleet, counting these assholes but plus Gina, Boomer, and six to eight robots what look like people.
