Starbuck's doing pushups on two benches in the Pegasus barracks when Lee enters. "You've been onboard less than four days, and you're already facing charges. You don't waste any time, do you?" Starbuck keeps going. "Neither do you, Lee. How's it feel being Garner's new playmate?" Apollo squeals, "I'm here to do a job!" She stands: "Yeah. Keep loudmouth, disobedient frack-up Kara Thrace in line." Apollo's hurt, confused, his jaws clench. "...Not doing such a good job, are ya?" He regains his composure -- she was supposed to be happy! He got to be a Major! They got to work together again! -- and shuts her down: "Evidently not. We don't have much time. Those guys are running out of air." Hands up. "Yeah, well, I tried. All right?" says Starbuck, knowing it's bullshit, and Apollo looks away. "All I have done since I got to the Beast is try and help, and all I've gotten is Garner's foot in my ass," Starbuck spits, and Lee looks up: "Well, maybe you need a kick in the ass!" She's almost relieved: "All right. Here we go. Finally." Starbucks want to fight it out and go back to playing with bugs and guns; Apollos want to hold grudges and feel all wounded and "how come you were so mean that time?"
