CIC. Dualla tells Adama, "Strike one reports inbound Cylons are bugging out. Request permission to go after them, sir." Adama gives the okay for them to "pursue and destroy." Dualla simplifies this to "Tear 'em up." Huh. Isn't it at least a small problem that they've now got less than twenty Vipers up against about a hundred Raiders? If it was this easy to take the Raiders out, they didn't really need to do all the sneaky stuff in the first place.
Flight deck. The Celtic theme that's been tweedling in the background becomes louder, and now there are singers, too. Which would be okay if I didn't have the sneaking suspicion that this was a translation of the "Jubjub" song. Apollo climbs out of his Viper as Starbuck strolls out and calls him a "magnificent bastard." Well, that's always fun to say. She holds up a bottle of space-pagne as she says, "That was one hell of a piece of flying and I couldn't have done it better myself." Cally has also rushed up to meet Apollo, and she actually has a bottle of space-pagne for him. Which I find interesting. Apollo simultaneously hugs Cally, grabs the bottle, and tells Starbuck to repeat what she just said. An ignored Cally wanders off, and somehow resists the urge to kick Starbuck's cane out from under her on the way. Starbuck obligingly compliments Apollo again, and Apollo thanks her and clinks his bottle against hers. Starbuck admits that she had some doubts. Apollo says that he did, too, and adds, " I wasn't sure that crazy-ass plan of yours could even possibly work." He shakes up his space-pagne and sprays it around. Starbuck hands him a cigar, saying that he deserves it. It'd be fun if that was the cigar that Adama gave Starbuck, and then if Apollo saved it and gave it to someone else. And the whole show became the story of this cigar getting passed around. But alas, it is not to be, since Apollo immediately bites the end off and spits it out.
Boomer and Crashdown stroll in, and a shapely young lady shouts, "Crash!" and rushes over to embrace him. He makes a "What can you do?" gesture at Boomer.
