Outside Adama's quarters, Roslin could not be more proud of Billy. She's nearly bursting with giggles throughout almost this entire scene and it's beautiful: "Someone took their [sic] vitamins this morning!" Billy's sheepish, but Roslin gets overheated: "No, you're right. Keeping Sharon Valerii alive, allowing her pregnancy to continue -- there is no road map for any of this. Somebody, somebody has got to keep asking the hard questions." Billy agrees, and Roslin outlines a plan: "I wanna stay ahead of this. Acknowledge the Cylon's existence, and then make...some kind of case for her to stay aboard Galactica." Billy's not feeling that: "I think you need to trust the people. Use the press, tell them the truth." Roslin loves him so, so much. He gives this little speech and she just stands there, adoring him, as he says, "I mean, we barely know anything about the Cylons. And until we learn more, we're not gonna destroy the only source of information that we have, period." She snorts: "'Period.' That simple, huh?" She's about to, I think, go into a whole defuse-the-Billy-bomb song and dance comedy act for him, but he spots Dualla and asks to take off and talk to her. Laura does that tiny humming thing as she laughs at him, just completely fucking with him -- using basically her eyes and the corner of her mouth -- but he's too stressed. She watches him go and hopes really hard on his behalf. Billy, don't be a hero.
