  • QUOTES (3)

    • (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.

  • NOTES (3)

  • 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).
