Cut to CIC, where Adama excuses himself and thanks the Prez for the offer of help, while Tigh watches with slight concern.
The Prez says she'll coordinate things with CIC, and continues to look bewildered as she concludes the call. Baltar takes a seat and hands the Prez a folder. As the Prez looks over whatever-it-is, Six appears in a crazy blue dress with a scarf as a top that reminds me of the things they used to use on the original Star Trek. She sits on the edge of the desk and notes that the fleet will be staying put for a while. And then she puts her foot on Baltar's hand, which is resting on his thigh. Baltar jerks his hand up and clutches his wrist, looking like a kid who's asking for a bathroom pass. The Prez asks if he's okay. Baltar wiggles his fingers like he's just having an attack of carpal tunnel syndrome. Six asks Baltar how long it'll be before the Cylons come looking for their missing ships. Yeah, that part does seem to be missing from Adama's calculations. Baltar grumps, "You have attacked us hundreds of times. We're still here." Hmph. I like it when Baltar carries on simultaneous conversations; this one's clearly only happening in his head. No fun. Six points out that the fleet is spread out, searching for Starbuck, and says that the Cylons will appear in three days at the outside. She also starts kissing Baltar's fingertips. The Prez hands Baltar a "requisition," and Baltar does some more "No, I swear, my wrist hurts" gestures before taking the papers back. Baltar gets up to leave, allowing us a glimpse of the Whiteboard of Extinction (47,958), and then turns back. He apologizes for his impertinence, but asks if its a good idea to put the whole fleet at risk for the sake of one pilot. The Prez says that the pilots risk their lives for the fleet every day. Baltar says, "I was just saying that to, uh..." as Six leans down into the frame. He says that he knows the missing pilot, and the Prez seems interested in that. Six whispers, "Not as personally as you'd like. Guess you'll never get to find out if she's a real blonde." Baltar quickly tells the Prez that he's torn because of that, but then there are "thousands of defenseless women and children and men throughout the fleet." The Prez sternly says she's sure Adama is aware of the risks, and thanks Baltar for his concern. Baltar "Of course"s his way out.
