  • After Adama says to Kronus,
    Adama: "You burned that into my brain when I was your aid"
Charka steps up to the two men.
Charka: "Excuse me, Commander. Your pilot is here. The shuttle is ready whenever you are."
Kronus: "We'll leave shortly, Charka."
Then we see Starbuck, Apollo, and Boomer.
Boomer: (chuckling) "I though Tigh was going to blast right out of his boots!"
Apollo: "Well, breaking formation isn't exactly part of the military code."
Starbuck: "A centon sooner and I might've caught her."
His eyes widen as he spots something. HIS POINT OF VIEW - Aurora standing near the door.
Starbuck: (o.s.) "There she is!"
As Starbuck hurriedly pushes through the crowd, Apollo and Boomer share a look.
Boomer: "Well, I'll be! It is Aurora!"
Apollo: "Yeah. Let's not interrupt."
  • After Starbuck walks away from Cassiopea to go after Aurora, Sheba joins Cassiopea as Starbuck stops after a few steps.
Sheba: "I couldn't help noticing. Did you interrupt something?"
Cassiopea: "Yeah. I guess I did."
  • On Galactica bridge, after Starbuck says to Apollo,
Starbuck: "I guess I thought you'd try to talk me out of it",
Apollo: (answers) "No. You wanna go, go. I just want to know why."
Starbuck: "I have to straighten something out."
Apollo: "Starbuck, why not just leave it alone?"
Starbuck: (a beat; then) "Because after seeing her, I think I still care about her... a lot."
Apollo: "I think maybe you and Cassiopea are getting so close, it's got you scared to death. I think maybe you're not running to Aurora... you're running away from Cassiopea."
Starbuck: "Look... buddy. Aurora already did a pretty good job of kicking me in the teeth today."
Apollo: "What makes you think she won't do it again?"
Starbuck: "Apollo, I gotta try."
Starbuck: (beat; brightens) "She's not mad at you. You could get her to listen."
  • After Apollo tells Tigh that both he and Starbuck are going to the Celestra for a maintenance scan, Tigh asks,
Tigh: "What's wrong with your viper!?"
Apollo: "Same thing as Starbuck's."
As they move away, Tigh looks after them, puzzled.
Starbuck: "Thanks, buddy."
Apollo: "I hope it works out."
Starbuck: "It will... Aurora's really a very gentle and forgiving person."
  • After Starbuck and Apollo close the canopies of their vipers so they can launch: ANGLE - SHEBA'S VIPER As Cassiopea moves past.
Sheba: "You aren't going to just let him go?"
Cassiopea: "I can't stop him."
Sheba: "But you know he's going over there to see her. Don't you care?"
Cassiopea: "I didn't say that. I said I can't stop him."
Sheba smiles gently at Cassiopea in understanding as Cassiopea moves to exit.
  • On the shuttle, after Kronus says,
Kronus: "Exactly what I was thinking, Captain. Lock in on her ion trail and come up her exhaust",
Apollo: (answers) "We're going back, but not that way."
Kronus: "Are you disobeying a direct order!?"
Apollo: "With all due respect, sir, I'm piloting, so I'm in charge."
Kronus: "Captain!"
For a long beat, Kronus and Apollo lock eyes, then
Apollo: "Commander, your suggestion would work if..."
