Norman (the clown) at right, with Shirley in center, and Andromus at left.

Norman Blore[1] and his wife Shirley are driving to a Halloween party where Wolfman Jack is in attendance. Norman is dressed as a clown, although he is far from jovial.

The "disguised" Cylons Andromus and Centuri accept a ride from Norman, needled by Shirley who believes they are humans such as they are, merely dressed up for the festivities. Unlike the laughing Shirley, his reaction is one of trepidation and discomfort.

During the awkward car ride, Norman reveals his hatred of Arnie's meatballs, Vida Blue's appointment to the San Francisco Giants and a negative view of Arnie's sister, Mildred, whom he describes as so "romantically malnourished" that "she once proposed to a mugger in Central Park". The only reason he attends the party is due to his belief that Arnie is the best music director in radio.

Upon the revelation by Shirley that Norman is the general manager of the WQSL radio station, of which Wolfman Jack is an on-air personality, Andromus believes the Wolfman can take them to radio equipment for them to communicate with the distant Cylon Empire (1980: "The Night the Cylons Landed, Part I").

Norman later expresses his concern to Arnie over Andromus' questions regarding the radio station, particularly noting that they were asking about the security arrangements. Norman is present when Centuri is subjected to microwave emissions from the microwave, but does not see Andromus' destruction of the microwave via his energy weapon as he makes a quip about putting gunpowder in the meatballs. The destruction of the microwave subsequently begins a fire in Arnie's apartment.

He later identifies Troy to USAF Colonel Briggs, but notes that Troy is responsible for saving their lives (1980: "The Night the Cylons Landed, Part II").

Note

William Daniels, who plays Norman, will later appear (in voice only) as K.I.T.T., a supercar from a more successful Glen Larson TV series, Knight Rider. Not so coincidentally, the K.I.T.T car's main sensor is identical to the Cylon Centurion red-eye scanner from Larson's Galactica days.

References

  1. Colonel Briggs refers to Norman as "Mr. Blore" when questioning the people at Arnie's party. The spelling is derived from the subtitles from the Region 1 DVD set.
