When a Cylon agent is found aboard a ship in the fleet, Adama, by Roslin's request, sends Kara to interrogate the one called Leoben Conoy. Though she approaches impenetrable to his tactics, the Cylon engages her in a discussion of his specific dogma, including how special he believes Kara to be.

Kara: You're a machine.
Leoben: I am more than you could ever imagine. I am God.
Kara: (laughs) I'm sorry. You're God? Wow. Nice to meet you. That's good. That's good. We'll give you a couple of minutes with that.
Leoben: It's funny, isn't it? We're all God, Starbuck. All of us. I see the love that binds all living things together.
Kara: Love? You don't even know what the word means.
Leoben: I know that God loved you more than all other living creatures and you repaid His divine love with sin, with hate, corruption, evil, so then He decided to create the Cylons.
Kara: The Gods had nothing to do with it. We created you. Us. It was a stupid, frakked-up decision, and we have paid for it. You slaughtered my entire civilisation! That is sin. That is evil. And you are evil.
Leoben: (to Kara) I have a soul. I see patterns. I know you. You're damaged. You were born to a woman who believed that suffering was good for the soul, so you suffered. Your life is a testament to pain. Injuries. Accidents. Some inflicted upon others, others inflicted upon yourself. Surrounds you like a bubble, but it's not real. It's just - that's just something she put into your head. It's something that you wanna believe because it means that you're the problem, not the world that you live in. You wanna believe it because it means that you're bad luck, like a cancer that needs to be removed. Because you hear her voice every day and you want her to be right.
Leoben: You kneel before idols and ask for guidance, and you can't see that your destiny's already been written. Each of us plays a role. Each time a different role. Maybe the last time I was the interrogator and you were the prisoner. The players change; the story remains the same. And this time - this time - your role is to deliver my soul unto God. Do it for me. It's your destiny. And mine. And I told you I had a surprise for you. Are you ready? You're going to find Kobol, birthplace of us all. Kobol will lead you to Earth. This is my gift to you, Kara.
Roslin mistakenly gives Leoben's name as Conroy, not Conoy.
The smear of blood that Leoben leaves around Kara's neck changes degrees, appearing fainter at times than others.
