In the corridor, Helo's grumbling and cursing under his breath, and Tigh comes running up to him for round two. "With all due respect, sir, I think Micah Robert might be hurting people," Helo says pissily, and Tigh mentions how Robert's the only one who even likes Helo anymore. "You may as well take whatever credibility you have left and chuck it out an airlock. You seriously want to stand up for these crazy frackin' people? What is it with you? You just like being on the outside looking in, do you?" Helo notes that this line makes no sense in context, and thus is one in a series of anti-Sharon swipes, and Tigh grins a little about that. "Mike Robert is a stand-up guy. A Caprican, one of our own. A man I can trust. On New Caprica, he worked with the Resistance. He patched up my eye. He fought the enemy. While you were snuggled up in bed with your Cylon wife every night ..." Helo punches him in the gut, even though he didn't say anything that horrible, and Tigh waves off the concerned Marines rushing up. "So you do give a frack what your friends think. Good for you! That's how it should be. But you know what? I give a frack too. About friends, about loyalty. You keep soiling Mike Robert's good name, and we are gonna finish this. How's that sound to you?" Helo just shakes his head, sad to be here, and Tigh advises him to get his hand looked at. Heh.
Helo wanders through the refugees, begging just 15 minutes to go do something, I don't know what, and catches Mrs. King's eye -- past her, running down the stairs, is Sharon, bearing tidings that Hera is sick. Not the sick she was before, but sick from like the sickness. Helo wonders how he didn't hear about this, and Sharon tells him they took her to Dr. Robert. Helo Suit grabs her and runs, because Robert kills people. In triage, Hera's fussing and sounds pretty sick; Helo balks as Robert prepares her injection of bitamucin, because Helo doesn't know that this is like only the second injection of actual bitamucin -- and not liquid death -- he's administered. Sharon tells him to stop being a baby, and they give her the shot. He's very kind with Hera and Sharon, giving her a bit of sedative for the "symptoms," and giving really great bedside manner. Sharon's the very picture of a concerned mommy, grateful to Robert not only for the treatment but for treating her and her baby so kindly, because when you're Sharon, every smile counts a lot more than we think. "And she'll be okay, though?" He smiles indulgently. "And she'll be fine. You can take her home." They wave goodbye, he chuckles like an awesome doctor, and once they're gone he hands Helo Willie King's soma braid. "She'll be fine," he says about Hera, somewhat calming Helo down, and then asks Helo to take the braid back to Mrs. King. He makes that weird dare face again, and Helo accepts the mission.
