Back to CIC, where Gaeta runs down the Sesha sitch: widowed ten weeks ago when a Raider Fleet took out part of the Greenleaf. Adama murmurs, "Widow." Yeah. Adama gaetas for the personnel currently on Cloud 9: "Captain Adama, half a Marine squad, and Starbuck's already there on R&R." Of course, Adama and Tigh make many worried faces about all that, knowing Lee's Spawn-like ability to get into trouble, but Adama doesn't miss a beat, reaching for his best weapon without even looking: "Get me Starbuck right away."
Apollo is inside the walls now, searching for environmental sensors. "Take a sip of carbon dioxide," he fronts at the inanimate object.
Meanwhile, Thug Vinson has remembered that Lee was with Ellen, and sends poor Chu to check it out. He stage-whispers, "Kern, there's an awful lot of military types here." Vinson explains that Chu has now grasped the entire point, and then pushes him down, all mean. He ends up bleeding. Vinson sends Thug #3, name of "Page," to investigate. Billy watches Sesha continue to freak out as Page checks the stalls one by one, then gets jumped by Lee.
In the corridor outside the lounge, three beefy Marines approach in Hawaiian shirts. Starbuck meets them, looking amazingly gorgeous. Even for her, she looks good. She's wearing a cute black band-collar shirt with kind of puffy sleeves, and her hair is down and kind of flippy, like a shorter version of Buffy's awesome haircut the week she became invisible. She greets Gunnery Sergeant Burrel in a wonderfully hard-boiled manner: "Good to see ya, Gunny. I'm gonna need some of those gorillas you call Marines." He replies that most of his "gorillas" were already on Cloud 9, "just trying to cop a little R&R." She's like, "Word," then gives them the sitrep: unknown number of shooters, at least twenty hostages, and a ninety-minute window before the threatened violence starts up. Burrel, mostly trusting Starbuck but also thinking she's nuts: "You got a plan, sir?" And yes: "Lock and load. Let's figure out the rest as we go along." So anybody else, not a plan. But it's Starbuck, and not even Gunny's going to be like, "That is not a plan, that is a chaotic incident resulting in massive casualties," because that's the best she can do.
