In the brig, the Prez frets that they have to go back, because Starbuck is going to come looking for the fleet once she's got the arrow. Billy, who's dropped by for a visit, seems skeptical that Starbuck will even find the arrow. The Prez isn't in the mood for cynics, and huffily tells Apollo, "Captain, you've got to get reinstated. You've got to get back to CIC. Got to denounce me, disavow me, do whatever you need to do. Colonel Tigh cannot relocate this fleet on his own without your father." So she's figuring that Adama won't leave Starbuck behind, which is reasonable. Apollo's busy thinking, "If my father dies, and Starbuck never comes back, who am I going to project all of my issues onto?" He does point out that Tigh's unlikely to be in a forgiving mood: "I put a gun to his head. He won't forget that any time soon." Hee. The Prez apologizes for getting Apollo involved in her shenanigans. Apollo brushes it off, saying, "I didn't do it for you. I did it for -- well, actually, I did it for nothing, turns out." Heh. The Prez says that he took a stand, and Apollo harrumphs, "And now look at us." Billy looks down at the floor and wonders, "Can I leave yet? I like the Prez and all, but hanging out in the brig is depressing."
Kobol. The troops move nervously into the woods. Baltar has obeyed Cally's request and is toting several cases of equipment, which makes me snicker. As he trudges along, Baltar sees the pretty white crib among the tree trunks. Baltar's hallucinations signal that it's time for a everyone to take a break for a minute. As they pause to rest, Selix checks on Socinus and asks for the medkit. She scrabbles through the contents while Tyrol wanders over to be reassuring at everyone. Tyrol asks Socinus how he's doing, and Socinus insists that he's okay, adding, "Just listening to the birds." Tyrol looks up as we hear tweeting, and chuckles, "I'll be damned. I don't remember the last time I heard birds." Socinus starts coughing, and then Selix moans that they're out of Serisone. Crashdown tells her to get the other medkit. Handsome Targ asks, "What other medkit?" Whoops. Crashdown snaps, "We pulled two medkits from the ship. I told you to keep an eye on both of them." Targ says that he only saw one. Oh, and it turns out that his name is Tarn, not Targ. The internet lied to me! But I'm just gonna go on calling him Targ, since soon enough we'll all be calling him toast. Anyway, Crashdown and Targ argue with mounting jerkitude until Selix interrupts to point out that Socinus will die without more Serisone. Serisone is the drug, not another character. I don't blame you if you're getting confused by all the "S"-names. Crashdown ponders as best he can, and then declares that since Targ forgot the medkit, Targ will have to go back for it. Nice. Tyrol overhears this from his position guarding the rear and keeping an eye out for old ladies to help across busy streets. He asks Cally to take over and quietly tells Crashdown that Targ can't go alone. Crashdown chuckles, "Are you questioning my orders, Chief?" Tyrol says no, he's pointing out a flaw in Crashdown's plan. Er, he's not questioning the orders, he's just saying they're stupid. Apparently that's okay. Tyrol says that he and Cally can go along with Targ. Crashdown sighs, "Fine," and Tyrol has already started walking away as Crashdown lamely adds, "Would you look out for Cally?" Ha! Crashdown has a crush on Cally! With that, Tyrol takes charge of his little patrol, and they move out.
