Oh boy! The bathroom scene! Gaeta enters the coed bathroom, lined with stalls, as a woman finishes washing her hands and exits. Wow, there is quite a cloud of steam over the sink. They've got powerful water heaters. Gaeta enters a stall, and then Baltar enters. He bends over to look at Gaeta's shoes, and then enters the neighboring stall. The camera lowers itself to shoe level. Baltar whispers, "Lieutenant? Is that you?" A beat, and Gaeta shifts his feet as he identifies Baltar. Baltar says, "So. How you doing?" Gaeta says, "Um..." Baltar quickly says, "You're busy! Well, I don't want to distract you! Please, don't let me interrupt you." Gaeta turns his feet inward uncomfortably. Excellent foot acting. Baltar taps his feet and whistles. Badly.
We cut to a shot of a sliver of Baltar's face through the door frame. So mostly we see one insane eyeball and a sliver of insane cheek. Baltar asks if Gaeta's still there. Gaeta says, "...Yup." Hee. Baltar apologizes for the awkward situation, but insists that he wanted to let Gaeta know how invaluable his help's been lately. Sliver-vision cuts to Gaeta as he says, "Thank you, Doctor. You have no idea how much that means to me." Baltar nods vigorously as he insists, "Not at all!" Then he asks, "How's it going over there?" Gaeta frowns and says,"Uh." Baltar quickly explains that he's asking about the photo enhancement in the lab. Gaeta figures it'll take a few more hours to finish up. Baltar's voice breaks a little as he suggests that the photo could be a fake. Gaeta says that he's authenticated the disk. Baltar babbles that there are all kinds of ways to fake these things, and that maybe he could come by the lab and help out. Gaeta hesitantly suggests that's not a good idea. Baltar whines: "For God's sake, Gaeta, my life is on the line! My reputation is at stake!" I love that he seems to value those two things equally. Gaeta starts to explain that his reputation is, too, but then the door to the bathroom opens. Baltar very noisily hisses, "Shhh! Someone's coming, someone's coming!" Sensible shoes click across the floor as a woman enters another stall. Then there's a flush, and Gaeta hurries out of the stall and out the door. Baltar rushes out after him and shouts, "You forgot to wash your hands!" Oh my. I think that's the funniest thing I've seen since the Angel puppet.
A frustrated Baltar looks around and spots the sensible shoes. He slams the stall door open, and Godfrey quickly stands up, outraged. They need better locks on the stall doors. Baltar shouts that he wants answers, while Godfrey asks if he's lost his mind. Baltar says, "That's an interesting question -- one I pose to myself on a regular basis." Godfrey keeps trying to shut the stall door while Baltar holds it open. He says that he didn't plant any bombs, and that she knows he didn't. Godfrey insists, "I don't know anything of the sort," and tries unsuccessfully to shove him out of the way. I would have liked it if Baltar seemed more surprised that Godfrey isn't strong enough to move him. Baltar finally says, "Let's entertain the notion, just for the moment, that you are not the woman I see everywhere. You are not Shelly Godfrey, either. You're a fake!" He looks her up and down and says that she's another Cylon copy. Godfrey grunts, "Get. Out." and finally manages to shut the door. Baltar flips out (yes, even more) and yells, "You think this is over? This is not over!" Behind Baltar, a soldier enters the bathroom and stares as Baltar adds, "No more Mister Nice-Gaius!" Wow, that's terrible. I tip my hat to you, sir. Baltar turns around, sees the new arrival, and finally sighs, "Women!" That's always a good cover.
