Adama yells at Lee for being on the hangar bay being Romo's bodyguard, when his orders were to... be Romo's bodyguard. Lee points this out, and Adama's like, "Except how your job is not to be led around by the nose," and yells about how the "bastard yanked [his] chain," so he jumped... none of which even happened. I get the point of the scene, and it's stupid, and the dialogue would be stupid anyway, but the motivations don't scan. Apparently Bill's upset because a bomb blew up, so he's acting irrational about it. Which is fine, and appropriate to the ongoing story, but there are two problems with it so far: 1) Bill Adama wouldn't react like this, and 2) nobody would react like this. It's like somebody wrote down a short outline of how the episode was supposed to go, and then that's what turned into the script. BILL AND LEE FIGHT ABOUT KARA'S DEATH AND THE BOMB AND ALSO HOW ROMO IS LEADING LEE AWAY FROM HIS FATHER. And since that's what the outline says, that's damn well what is going to happen in this scene, even if it makes no sense on a character level or even in terms of the proceedings of the episode's plotlines. So all of a sudden Bill's jealous of Romo and Lee, except that hasn't happened yet; Bill's pissed about his child's life being in danger, even though he assigned his child to this danger; Bill's upset because nobody cares that his daughter died, even though everybody totally cares. It's just so stupid. Lee brings up again that he was assigned to security, and Bill just goes off the deep end, asshole-wise, pointing out that even within the context of being wrong in this argument, he's still somehow right, because for "security," Lee sure did a bad job finding a bomb. So dumb.
Lee points out how he tried to skirt the rules by having Athena fly, and Bill responds: "You could've died. Plain and simple, you're a soldier. Live like one, start acting like one." And even though this makes no sense, Lee assumes that he's talking about getting back on track after Kara died, so... now we're going to talk about that. Because that's what was on the outline, that's why! "She's been gone two weeks. I didn't realize the clock was running." Bill tells him to stop, but he won't: "... because maybe we're just built differently." Like love is something you can quantify, right? To say one person's love, or pain, are greater or lesser than another person's love, or pain, is to evince a complete lack of understanding of love. Or pain. "You stop," Bill growls again. "Don't you dare quantify my loss!"
