    • (wondering why Starbuck slept with Baltar) Lee: Why'd you do it, Kara? Just tell me why? Kara: Because I'm a screw-up, Lee. Try to keep that in mind.

    • (After a sparring session) Adama: You don't lose control. Lee: Thanks. Adama: No, you gotta lose control. Let your instinct take over. Lee: I thought we were just sparring. Adama: That's why you don't win.

    • Kara: Hi, Gaius. Baltar: Mr. Vice President, if you please, Lt. Thrace. Some level of decorum has to be maintained after all, or is it a pirate ship you're running? Kara: No, just a battlestar, sir.

    Allusions (1)

    • Featured Music: Passacaglia by Bear McCreary. A passacaglia is a musical form. Its name derives from the Spanish pasear (to walk) and calle (street), supposedly to denote the music played by wandering musicians. Originally a slow Italian or Spanish dance in 3/4 time, the passacaglia later came to be an instrumental work in 3/4 based on a ground (that is, a melody which repeats unchangingly throughout while other lines are freely varied).
