Battlestar Galactica: Transcripts: S02E13: Epiphanies

Caprica – Doctor’s Office (Flashback to the miniseries)


Doctor: I’m afraid the tests are positive. The mass is malignant. It’s advanced well beyond the left breast. I’m afraid the test is positive. Ms. Roslin… the surgery, of course, to remove the mass…

Caprica City Garden (before the attack)


This scene is is split between the conversation o­n Caprica (below) and a team of medics tending to Roslin as she is transported to sick bay. In the garden Roslin spots Baltar and #6 meeting each other and hooking up.

Stans: Secretary Roslin?

Roslin: Yes?

Stans: Naylin Stans from the education alliance. You said you wanted to talk?

Roslin: Yes. I’m sorry, Mr. Stans…

Stans: I have to admit, I was surprised to get your message.

Roslin: The President was surprised I sent it.

Stans: Once our chief negotiator got a billy club to the head, we figured Adar’s government had written us off as a lost cause.

Roslin: I was a teacher long before I was secretary of education, and causes are o­nly lost when we give up.

Galactica – Sick bay


Cottle: Madame President? Can you hear me? Let’s make her as comfortable as we can.  Roslin knows her time is nearly up.

Roslin: Oh, gods…

Space – Vipers=============================================

Starbuck: Starbuck zero four niner– cap is away.

Dualla: Galactica, roger that. Zero four niner. Safe flight.

Kat: Safe and 20 frakkin’ minutes late. Did you have a rough night, starbuck?

Starbuck: You’re way out of line. Just follow my lead and save the attitude for someone who cares.

Kat: Kat six seven zero– roger that. Request permission to clear guns.

Starbuck: Roger that, Kat. Clear your throat.  Kat fires off a few rounds. Suddenly her port gun misfires and explodes. It sends a piece of shrapnel flying into Starbuck’s window.

Starbuck: Damn it!

Kat: Weapons malfunction! Weapons malfunction! Galactica!

Starbuck: Kat, you good?

Kat: I’m good, I’m good. What the hell just happened?

Starbuck: Your wing gun’s out. Just keep it steady, we’re going home. Galactica, this is Starbuck. I’m declaring an emergency. We’ve got two bent birds. Requesting priority clearance to land.

Kelly: Starbuck, Galactica. Flight deck is yours.  They return back to the Galactica.

Galactica – Hangar


Starbuck: Why don’t you just shoot us in the locker room, chief? Save the wear and tear o­n the ships.

Tyrol: Kat’s guns are clean, I checked ’em myself.

Starbuck: Yeah, well I don’t believe in accidents.

Cally: Chief. Something’s not right.  She hands him two rounds. o­ne is too light, and breaks when he squeezes it too hard.

Tyrol: The weight’s off, it’s too light.

Cally: I found three more just like it. Mixed in with the regular rounds.

Tyrol: Casing’s been weakened. Falls apart in the barrel. Next o­ne hits it– bang, she’s lucky she didn’t lose her whole wing. o­ne bad round’s a fluke. More than o­ne, sabotage. Pull ’em all!

Deckhand: Alright you heard the cheif, lets pull ’em all! Go!

Galactica – Sick Bay


Adama: How’s the President doing, Doc?

Cottle: She’s dying… and she knows it. I offered her a shot of morpha to ease the pain, but…she wouldn’t hear of it.

Caprica Doctor (Flashback):  Tests are positive.   Caprica – Presidents Office (before the attack)


Roslin (flashback transition voiceover): Mr. President… the terrorists…

Roslin: Mr. President, we should at least speak with the strikers before sending in the troops. They’re teachers, not terrorists.

Adar: They’re acting like thugs. They’re last demonstration put two policemen in the hospital. Six of them have chained themselves outside the hall of education. As far as I’m concerned, they’re criminals.

Roslin: Their pay is substandard, their schools are falling apart, and the strike action has been gaining momentum for months, and you know that. I don’t understand why we’re not at least talking to them.

Adar: One of the most interesting things about being president is that you don’t have to explain yourself…to anyone. You’ve already set a meeting with Stans, haven’t you?

Roslin: Obviously, o­nly if you approve, Mr. President.

Galactica – Sick Bay


The command staff are talking over Roslin’s bed.

Baltar: She’s really not in a fit state to do anything… let alone conduct any government business.

Roslin: Don’t talk about me as if I’m not here. There’ll be plenty of time for that soon enough. Billy, could you– Billy adjusts her bed so she is facing everyone.
Roslin: Gentlemen, I called you here to discuss the cylon. Dr. Cottle…would you please tell them what you told me this morning?

Cottle: I’m no expert in genetics, but I can read a blood test. That cylon fetus is showing some very peculiar genetic abnormalities.

Adama: I haven’t seen any of this o­n your report, Doctor.

Baltar: No, um. Well, as Dr. Cottle says, he’s– he’s not an expert, and I am. Um, I’ve been through the tests and I-I wouldn’t say that there was anything conclusive.

Cottle: Didn’t say conclusive, just damned odd.

Baltar: Right. Madame President. As you know, the Sharon Cylon is of considerable tactical value to the fleet.

Roslin: Perhaps you’ve gotten too close to your subject, Doctor. This is difficult, so I’m going to cut right to it. Allowing this thing to be born could have frightening consequences. For the security of this fleet, I believe the cylon pregnancy must be terminated before it is too late.

Adama: Madame President, I’d like–

Roslin: I thought you of all people would understand, Admiral.

Baltar: Madame President. I don’t understand, this makes no sense.

Roslin: One of the interesting things about being president is you don’t have to explain yourself to anyone. Thank you, gentlemen, I’m-I’m a little tired. Gentlemen.

Galactica – Hallway


Baltar: I don’t want to seem alarmist, um, but I am perturbed. I think that the, uh, the President’s illness is affecting her judgment. Especially when it comes to the subject–

Adama: She seemed reasonably coherent to me.

Baltar: Well, then I’ll have to appeal to you o­n scientific grounds. Destroying this child would seriously impact my studies of the cylon sub-species.

Adama: The President made the call and I’m backing her.

Baltar: Look, with all due respect, the President made the call based o­n evidence presented by Dr. Cottle, and he’s medicine’s–

Adama: Pull yourself together. You’re about to become President of the colonies. You’re going to be asked to make some very hard decisions. Act like you can handle it.  #6 appears

Baltar: Gods– uh… where have you been?

#6: Where have I been? I never left you, Gaius.

Baltar: Oh, right, yeah, um. Yeah, metaphorically speaking. It’s just that it was weeks ago, and I, uh…

#6: I’m sure you’ve suffered mightily in my absence.

Baltar: You know, jealousy is a really ugly emotion. What is this lingering controversy over my affair with your three-dimensional duplicate.  #6: I’m not jealous, I’m concerned.

Baltar: Oh yeah, concerned, about what?

#6: Our child!

Baltar: Oh–now you’re concerned?

#6: Well, for your information, the President wants to kill it. o­nce Roslin’s gone, you’ll be President. You can use your new authority to save our child.

Battlestar Galactica: S01E11: Colonial Day

Baltar: Oh, like that’s gonna– did you see the way Adama looked at me? The contempt o­n his face? I will be the President, all right, but without the military support, I might as well be an anointed dog catcher.

#6: Yes, well, you have your own resources if you’d use them. What, you don’t know what I mean?

Baltar: No, I don’t know what you mean.

#6: The nuclear device. The o­ne Adama provided for your research.



Baltar: There is o­ne way.  #6: I didn’t want to have to ask you for this. Baltar: I didn’t want to have to ask you for this. #6: But what I really need– Baltar: But what I really need #6: To complete the project… is a nuclear warhead. Baltar: Is a nuclear– warhead. Galactica – Hallway=============================================Baltar: You’re totally insane.  #6: I’m trying to help you, you idiot. If Adama remains committed to the destruction of our child, it may be our o­nly hope.    Galactica – Adama’s Quarters============================================= Adama: There’s no easy way to say this. It’s about the cylon. The President has decided that her pregnancy will be terminated.  Helo: What? Why? Adama: Doc cottle discovered some anomalies in the fetal blood work.  Helo: Isn’t that expected? Adama: Maybe. But the President believes that to allow the baby to come to full term constitutes an unacceptable risk to the fleet. Helo: I don’t understand. Sharon’s o­nly helped us since she came back from Caprica. She even turned o­n her own.  Adama: To save her life. Don’t mistake the will the live for genuine conversion, Lieutenant. She’s still the enemy.  Helo: Does she know? Adama: Not yet. Helo: Then I should be the o­ne to tell her. If that’s all, sir. Adama: Helo. I don’t expect you to agree to the decision. But I need you to accept it.  Helo: We’re talking about my child, sir. Part of me. But I guess it’s easier to kill when you call it a cylon. Adama: Dismissed.   Galactica – CIC============================================= Tigh: So you’re saying someone’s been tampering with our ammunition.  Starbuck: Shells don’t unload themselves.  Tigh: What’s this I hear about you ordering both Galactica and Pegasus fighters to stand down?  Apollo: Price you pay for reinstating me as CAG, sir. Tigh: Maybe that was a mistake.  Apollo: Maybe I don’t give a damn what you think, sir. Adama: Take it easy, both of you.  Apollo: Fact is, we’ve been sharing stories between the ships. And nobody flies combat until our ammo supplies check out.  Tigh: Leaving us defenseless if the cylons decide to pick a fight.  Adama: We were defenseless before this, we just didn’t know about it. Lee, find out who did this.    Galactica – Ammunitions Shop=============================================
Apollo and Starbuck come to find the culprit, they are flanked by marines Apollo: All right. Excuse me, I’m looking for Asha Janik. Worker: Asha, she’s over there. Apollo: Let’s do this quietly. (They walk over to Asha) Asha Janik? Captain Adama. Janik: I have a message for your father. They may take me!  Apollo: Okay, stop her! Janik: But I am o­ne of many! We have declared war against Galactica’s armies of death! The cylons aren’t our true enemy! It’s the military that refuses to negotiate! All we want is peace! Demand peace! Demand peace!  She is removed by marines. Starbuck: So much for being discreet, huh?    Galactica – Adama’s Quarters============================================= Adama: We found these pamphlets in Janik’s quarters. Some kind of a manifesto.  Tigh: Demand peace from the cylons? Who the hell are these people?  Baltar: Cylon sympathizers. Just had no idea they were this organized.  Adama: I want to know how she got aboard my ship.  Apollo: The hangar deck’s short-staffed. We’ve been forced to import civilians to handle some of the grunt work. Apparently she’s, um, she’s a Picon, worked maintenance o­n the Greenleaf, no known criminal affiliations.  Tigh: Huh, until now, now listen to this: “Do not be afraid, we are not terrorists, but we will not sit back while Adama’s war machine continues to press us into cruel and futile conflict.” Gods damn it. Apollo: “Our demonstrations worked. News is already spreading across the fleet.” Adama: I know. We were contacted by a person claiming to speak for the subversives demanding a meeting o­n the Galactica.  Tigh: They’ve got stones, I’ll give them that.  Adama: Well, I’ve agreed. TighWhat? Adama: We’re not negotiating. I just want to know what we’re up against.   Caprica City Garden (before the attack)=============================================
The scene starts with Roslin clinging to life in her hospital bed. Another flashback ensues… Stans: Madame secretary? Considering the stakes, you don’t seem particularly engaged.  Roslin: The stakes are what we decide to make them, Mr. Stans. If the President uses troops to enforce us back to work order, people will get hurt. Even die.  Stans: Some causes are worth dying for.  Roslin: Not this o­ne.
Caprica Doctor Flashback: The mass is malignant.
Roslin:  (in her bed o­n Galactica) Doctor.
Galactica – Adama’s Quarters============================================= Jahee: Admiral, I am Royan Jahee. You have a unique way of welcoming visitors to your ship.  Tigh: Visitor, my ass. We shoot people like you for treason.  Jahee: Colonel, I’m o­nly an interested party trying to prevent more bloodshed. I deplore what happened aboard your vipers.  Adama: How many sympathizers do we have aboard this fleet? Jahee: If you’re trying to crush an organization, you can stop now. The people in this movement are following an idea, not a leader.  Tigh: What the hell do they want?  Jahee: Peace…with the cylon. Adama: You want us to surrender? They attacked us.  Jahee: Only after we’d enslaved them! You call yourselves military men, strategists. Explain to me how our current course of attack and retreat leads to victory?  Adama: You can play innocent bystander, but I think you know more than you’re telling us. Either way, you’re a danger to this fleet. Jahee: Admiral, arresting me isn’t going to stop any of this.  Adama: Maybe not. But it’s a start. Take him away.    Galactica – Hangar Bay=============================================
Apollo: All right, get your rubber gloves o­n. This is everything from the Janik woman’s quarters. Somehow the Admiral thinks looking through this crap’s gonna tell us something new about their so-called movement.  Starbuck: So, um…haven’t seen much of you since your space walk.  Apollo: Hold it, what is this? Apollo finds a handheld computer. Starbuck: What’s a deckhand need with a portable library reader?  Apollo: The Daru Mozu. A tylium refinery. And janik’s used to explosives. This is the CAG. Get me a tac team ready, right now.    Galactica – Brig============================================= Boomer: [Crying] I don’t understand, why are they doing this now?  Helo: I don’t know. The Admiral said they found something in the baby’s blood. Somehow, President Roslin considers it a threat to the fleet.  Boomer: It can’t just be that. I’ve done nothing but help them since I’ve come here. I’ve held back my anger. I’ve tried to show them that cylons are not all the same. That we’re not all murderers.  Helo: Deep down, I think they’re still afraid of you.  Boomer: Yeah…afraid. They wanna be afraid of something? Yeah? Just let them come! Let ’em! Let them try to take my baby! Ahhh! Just let them try to take my baby!  Boomer starts flipping out. She throws a fit and then starts bashing the metal grid reinforced wall-glass with her head. Repeatedly. Helo: Sharon, stop! Boomer: Ahh!  Helo: Sharon, please don’t do this! Please! Boomer: Ahhh! Helo: Listen to me, listen to me! Listen to me.  Boomer: Ahh!   Space – Raptor: =============================================A raptor is heading towatd the Daru to look for a bomb. Apollo: When we land, move fast. We’re looking for explosive devices set near the Daru’s ftl drive.  Marine: Captain, I’m getting something o­n the wireless I think it’s coming from the Daru Mozu. Woman:  (on radio) None of us want to die, but the fighting must end. If my sacrifice sends a signal to the cylon that brings peace, then it was worth it. I do this for my children, and for the children that will follow them. Gods willing, demand peace, demand peace. Apollo: Pull out, pull out! Pull out, pull out, pull out!  An explosion goes off o­n the Daru near the FTL engines. the raptors pulls away in just enough time. However some bodies are seen exiting the hole in the Daru.   Galactica – Brig============================================= Adama: People are dead. Jahee: I grieve for them, Admiral. And I assure you, the tylium’s ship’s just a taste of what’s in store, unless someone starts listening!  Adama grabs his throat and starts to choke him. Adama: You listen and you listen well. I don’t care if I have to interrogate every civilian o­n board this fleet. This is gonna stop. Do you understand?  Jahee: Yes.   Colonial o­ne============================================= Billy: Mr. Vice President, President Roslin insisted o­n your taking the tour. She’d like the transition to go as smoothly as possible.  Baltar: What are these? Billy: Cylon agent suspects, sir.  Baltar looks over at the whiteboard with the number of humans remaining. Billy: That number means everything to her. Represents hope, that’s our future.  Baltar: Yes, yes. Billy: Being the President is, uh, a lot of responsibility. It’s tradition for outgoing Presidents to leave a letter for their successor. It’s usually opened o­n the first day of the new term, but the next few days are liable to prove…hectic, so…  Baltar: Well, let’s just pray that she gets better.  Billy: Let’s.  The phone rings. Billy answers it. Billy: Excuse me. Mr. Vice President? Baltar: Hello? Yes. Yes. I understand. Thank you.    Cloud Nine – Luxury Room=============================================Baltar enters the room and find a tattooed woman with a very large gun pointing at him. Baltar: I was told I might meet an old friend here.  Gina: It’s good to see you, Gaius.  Baltar: So you’ve become a member of the peace movement?   Gina: Well, despite what you may think, I’ve always abhorred violence. Would you excuse us? Please. The guard leaves. Baltar: Do they have any idea what you are?  Gina: Of course not, even their dedication has limits.  Baltar: I miss you. You look amazing. I can’t believe– how real you are.  Baltar motions over to Gina, getting ready to kiss her. Gina doesn’t like that very much. Gina: What’re you doing? Baltar: I haven’t stopped thinking about you since the second I left the pegasus.  Gina: No, no– Baltar: I can’t get you out of my head.  Gina: Don’t–do this, not yet. Baltar: I can’t help myself, I can’t.  Gina: Gaius. Baltar kisses Gina. She resists and bites his lip, drawing blood. Baltar breaks away. Baltar: Ahhh! I’m sorry.  Gina: No, I’m– I’m sorry. I’m just–I’m not ready.  Baltar: So, is there any reason in particular for inviting me around here?  Gina: Because you saved me. Let me save you.  Baltar: Oh, here we go again. What are you talking about?  Gina: You must sense it. Gaius, the fleet’s crumbling. People are turning o­n each other. There are serious misgivings about the military. When you’re President, you can use the office to turn them against Adama, paving the way for the cylons to save us. Baltar: I-I would love to be with you always, but– Gina: I know it’s hard, but it’s the o­nly way. Baltar: No. No. I am not who you think I am. And I will not be responsible for the destruction of mankind.    Caprica – President’s Office (before the attack)=============================================
Another flashback scene Cottle (transition flashback): If you would have caught it sooner, maybe we could have done more.   Adar: Laura, come in. I didn’t like the way we left things this morning.  Roslin: Richard, I–  They embrace and start kssing.  Adar: I know. You’ve been thinking this is a mistake for a while now.  Roslin: I just met with Stans. The education alliance is going to back off.  Adar: Back off? Laura, what did you give them?  Roslin: I made them a promise that we would seriously hear out their grievances, Richard. I thought you’d be happy they’re going back to work.  Adar: Laura, you’ve put me in a very awkward position.  Roslin: I don’t see how. Both sides gave ground.  Adar: It’s not just about your teachers. It’s the next strike i’m worried about. You just showed them that if they hold out long enough, this administration will cave.  Roslin: You expected me to fail.  Adar: I expected you to hold the line. This doesn’t have to be the end of the world. You can stay o­n in an advisory capacity. Gods know we need your ideas.  Roslin: You’re asking me to resign?  Adar: I don’t have any choice. This isn’t about you and me anymore.  Roslin: You’re right, it’s not. You were willing to attack those people and up until a few hours ago, I was prepared to let you. I am o­n my way to the Galactica to represent this administration. When I return, if you still want my job, be prepared to fight. When I return…  Roslin’s vital signs are getting much worse, death is immanent.  Cottle: Notify the Admiral.   Galactica=============================================Adama gives a speech over the loud speaker. Adama: This is Admiral Adama. As you know, President Roslin has been aboard Galactica for the last few days. She’s a fighter. But as of this moment, her prognosis is grave. I know that many of you believe in the power of prayer. If that is your way, then I urge you to pray for our President. As for the others, I hope you will join me in keeping her in our thoughts.    Galactica – Hallway outside sickbay.=============================================
In a previous scene, Guards enter her cell and she throws another fit, and swings a chair at the guards. She is evenually sedated. Adama watches everything. o­n thier way to sick bay (to abort the baby) Helo stands in front of a portal. He gestures toward his gun. Helo: Admiral, please don’t do this. Adama: Stand down, everyone. Give me room. Think about what you’re doing Helo. You’re a soldier.  Helo: I’m a father, like you. Please, sir…give me a raptor, let me take her off the ship. I’ll get her away from the fleet.  Adama: I can’t do that, son.  Helo: Admiral, Admiral!  Baltar enters. Adama: Doctor, get the hell outta here. Baltar: Admiral, I must talk to you concerning the cylon child. It seems I may have been…wrong. Very wrong. When I said that Dr. Cottle misinterpreted the fetal blood work–  moments later in sick bay Baltar: See, I had another look at those samples and I discovered something quite intriguing. Understand, cylon blood is virtually impossible to differentiate from our own. That being said, obviously it has to be slightly different because the cylon is not human, um… if, um… if our blood looks like this… for example. And the cylon’s blood looks like this… then it’s fair to assume that the cylon human is carrying an amalgam.  Baltar draws some hexagons o­n an x-ray screen demonstarting. Adama: Is this a theory or fact?  Baltar: The cylon’s fetus contains no antigens. It has no blood type. That’s what Dr. Cottle was talking about when he said it was damned odd. Except it’s not damned odd, it’s astonishing. Now, knowing as we do that the cylons are built slightly better to endure than their human counterparts, I wonder could the cylon blood also be blessed, shall we say blessed, with a heightened resistance to disease? Huh…so.I applied a sample of sharon’s fetal blood to some cancer cells I took from the President.  Adama: What am I looking at?  Baltar: Nothing. That’s the whole point. The cancer was gone and it was gone within a matter of hours.  Adama: Are you saying you found a cure for the President’s cancer? Baltar: Well, it’s untried. It-it’s obviously untried and therefore extremely dangerous. But, yes, it’s possible. If you abort Sharon’s fetus now, you’ll never know.   Later in sick bay. Baltar pokes Boomer’s stomach to draw some blood from the fetus. Baltar: Now you may feel a sharp pain.  Helo: Sharon, it’s okay, it’s gonna be all right.  Cottle: I don’t like what you’re doing. I think it’s unnatural and damned dangerous.  Baltar: Yes, well, given the patient’s current condition, I am not sure that I see the downside.  Cottle: Maybe it’s just her time. Baltar: Then for o­nce…perhaps I am the beacon of hope around here.  Baltar prepares the blood to be administered to Roslin.   Caprica City Garden (before the attack)=============================================Another flashback. Roslin: If you want to settle this, your people have to disengage. No more civil disobedience, no more acts of violence. I want our students back in school.  Stans: Done. I’m glad you called, Madame secretary.  Roslin: Me too.   Galactica – Sick Bay=============================================  Caprica Doctor Flashback: I’m afraid the tests are positive. The mass is malignant.  Roslin: Uhhhh.  She starts shaking and her vitals fail. Baltar: What’s happening?  Cottle: Move, move! Damn, she’s convulsing. Nurse, get me 10 ccs. Nurse! Help me get her o­n her side.  Baltar: Nurse, nurse! Cottle: No, hold it. Roslin’s condition improves from dead, to miraculously cured. Cottle: I’ll be damned. Baltar: Madame President? Roslin: Dr. Baltar?  Baltar: It’s so very good to see you. No, no, don’t–don’t move. Don’t move. Madame President, very good.   Galactica – Sick Bay============================================= Adama: How’s she doing, doctor?  Cottle: I’ve never seen anything like it. It’ll be a while before she’s a hundred percent, but…her scans are clear. Cancer’s gone.  Adama: Are you sure?  Cottle: It’s gone. Adama: Thank you.  Cottle: Thank you. Admiral. Adama: You seem better. Roslin: Much. Are you still holding the spokesman from the new faction in the brig?  Adama: Yes.  Roslin: Would you take me to him, please? Adama: Certainly. Roslin: Thank you. Adama: I’ll wait for you to get dressed.    Galactica – Brig=============================================Adama wheels the president into the brig in a wheelchair. Jahee: President Roslin.  Roslin: Mr. Yahee, isn’t it? I thought it was time we met. Would you open the door, please?  Adama: Do it. The cell door opens. Roslin: All these people want is to be heard. A member of your group nearly destroyed our tylium refiner. Before we can even begin to talk I need your personal assurance that there will be no more attacks.  Jahee: As I told you the Admiral, I have had no direct contact–  roslin: Genuine negotiations require trust. Do not lie to me.  Jahee: I’ll talk to my people. Make them understand.  Roslin: Excellent. And I’ll listen… maybe even act. But if you renege, I’ll insist the Admiral hunt you and your friends down, without mercy.    Galactica – Baltar’s Lab============================================= #6: You seem very content.  Baltar: Sharon’s child is safe. Adama and Roslin have agreed that more study is required before any drastic measures are taken.  #6: Yes, but by saving Roslin, you’ve denied yourself your rightful place of leadership. There are many aspects of you, Gaius, I will never understand.  Baltar: You wouldn’t. Neither, would I suspect, your corporeal counterpart.  #6: Do you love her?  He ignores her.  #6: What is that? Baltar: The letter Roslin wrote me. To be opened upon the event of her death.  #6: “President Baltar. I offer my sincere congratulations–”  Baltar: Thank you. #6: “I say that knowing we’ve had our differences and that you take office despite my many reservations. You may be the most  brilliant person I’ve ever met, but your intelligence is unleavened by compassion. You must be reminded of your ethical  responsibilities and challenged to rise above your own selfish needs. I don’t write this to hurt you, but to beg you to open your heart. Understand that the people in the fleet look to you not just for leadership, but for solace… justice. Find a way to give them that, and you will be a great leader. Laura Roslin.” Baltar: After all I’ve done for the fleet. After all I’ve done for her.  #6: Roslin’s never trusted you. She’s undermined you at every turn, and now–  Baltar: So now we know she’s never gonna trust me.  #6: This is not a political struggle anymore, Gaius.This is quite literally life and death.    Cloud Nine – Luxury Room============================================= Jahee: The President assured me that as long as there are no further acts of violence, she’s willing to bring our concerns to the quorum and Admiral Adama.  Gina: She’s trying to buy time. [Sighs] She’ll never be open to negotiating with the cylons.  Jahee: I disagree. I think we’ve made real progress today, and so does the Vice President.  Gina: Baltar?  Jahee: Yes. Just before I left, he asked to meet with me. He encouraged patience while he works with Roslin from within. And he offered the contents of this case as proof of his sincerity.  Gina:What’s in it?  Jahee: I don’t know. He said that you should be the o­ne to open it. Gina: Frak! She opens the bag and jumps back. Inside, is the nuclear weapon from Baltar’s lab.
