Starbuck wakes up, bathed in sunlight. Simon enters, and while he fusses over her IV, Starbuck asks, "Are you a Cylon?" He replies, "What do you think?" Starbuck thinks that he didn't answer the question. Simon laughs and says he is definitely not a Cylon. He adds, "I don't know what you'd expect me to say. If I [were] a Cylon, I certainly wouldn't admit it." Starbuck asks if she can go, and Simon gestures at the door. Starbuck sits up about halfway, and then her face crumples up again. She falls back and sighs, "Frackin' doctors." Simon asks if she's conceding that he's a doctor. Starbuck says that the jury's still out, but that she'd expect the Cylons to have better digs. Simon expositions that they're in a mental institution north of Delphi. He peels down the bandage on her side, revealing some tidy stitches, and then replaces the bandage. Starbuck asks, "So, what, I'm supposed to believe there really is a Resistance out there?" Simon hushes her and jokes, "Don't tell anybody, we're trying to keep that quiet." Then he picks up a needle and says it's time for her pain meds. Starbuck watches as he injects something into the IV tubing, and then she drifts off.
Cally's in the brig. A guard slides some food into her cell.
Adama's quarters. Tyrol nervously explains that Cally was "distraught" after her experiences on Kobol. I wonder if it's occurred to Tyrol that the people he sticks up for tend to get killed. But so do a lot of other people, I guess. Adama doesn't even seem to be listening as he flips through some papers. Tyrol says, "I don't believe she was in her right mind when she shot Boomer." Without looking up, Adama asks, "Did you love her, Chief?" It's sort of predictable, but Tyrol's expression as he tries to figure out whom Adama's asking about is still funny. Adama clarifies that he 's talking about Boomer, and Tyrol finally says, "I thought I did." Adama tetchily says, "When you think you love somebody, you love them. That's what love is. Thoughts." Tyrol shifts uncomfortably as Adama hisses, "She was a Cylon. A machine. Is that what Boomer was, a machine?" Well, that's what you just said. I don't think Tyrol's quite ready for the existential dilemma Adama's concerned with. Tyrol says, "That's what she turned out to be." Adama stands up and insists that Boomer was more than that. Poor Tyrol. Adama adds, "She was a vital, living person aboard my ship for almost two years. She couldn't have just been a machine. Could you love a machine?" Tyrol says no. I think Tyrol is approaching this like, "She was a machine, therefore I couldn't have loved her." Whereas Adama is thinking, "Tyrol loved her, therefore she couldn't just be a machine." Adama finally realizes that Tyrol is way out of his depth here, and turns away as he says that Cally will stay in the brig for thirty days for discharging a firearm without permission. Wow, I guess that's it for her for the season, then. Tyrol thanks Adama and heads for the door. Adama lay back on his bead and says, "There are many copies. You'll see her again." What I like about that is, it's not clear if Adama is trying to warn Tyrol, or comfort him. Probably a bit of both.
