Colonel Tigh and Helo race towards Adama's cabin with several marines. Kara confronts Roslin, talking about her visions and how she followed and trusted her blindingly. Kara, however, has seen Earth and knows where it is. Playing into Roslin's suspicion, Kara tells her that if she honestly believes that she is a Cylon to shoot her. Roslin agrees and takes the gun and fires, only to miss. The marines then come in and take Kara away, literally kicking and screaming, vowing that she will die before she gives up...

Episode Notes
Survivor count: 39,676

The model numbers of the remainder of the "Significant Seven" are revealed: Cavil is Number One, Leoben Conoy is Number Two, and Simon is Number Four.

This is the first appearance of a Number Six copy named Natalie Faust, although only her first name is given onscreen later in "The Hub".

Episode Quotes
Kara: Listen to me, please. I'm losing it. The ringing - the way to Earth, it's getting weaker. Don't you understand? Don't any of you understand? It was so - It was so clear, like it was coming from the next room. Stop looking at me like that! I can feel it slipping away. Even without jumping, as we move, it's half of what it was when I got here. Half. If we keep jumping, it'll be gone and we'll never find it again. I thought that's what we wanted - a way to Earth. Do you hear me?
Tigh: Get her out of here.
Kara: (to Roslin) You better work on your aim. Because I'm not gonna stop! You're gonna have to kill me!

Natalie: The Hybrid is clearly telling us something.
Number One: The Hybrid is always telling us something. They're supposed to maintain operations on each ship, not vomit metaphysics.

Anders: Did you see Kara?
Tigh: I saw her. She's as crazy as a latrine rat. If anything, she's more like Starbuck than ever.

Tigh: Well, he is accomplished at two things: lying in a cell and lying in a woman. He'd poke a skinjob. He racked up a Six, that's a given.
Tory: There is no way.
Tigh: You don't have to get on your back for him, but --
Tory: Oh, gee. Thanks.

Roslin: You're so afraid to live alone.
Adama: And you're afraid to die that way. You're afraid that you may not be the dying leader you thought you were. Or that your death may be as meaningless as everyone else's.

Natalie: For the last time, will you stop lobotomising the Raiders?
Number One: (to the Fours and Fives) It's unbelievable, isn't it? Unbelievable. (to Natalie) For the last time... no.
Natalie: I was afraid you'd say that. Come in.
(two Centurions enter the room)
Number One: This is cute. Centurions can't vote, Six.
Natalie: Oh, they're not here to vote, Cavil.

Number One: Now, this, uh, this isn't funny. Leave. I said leave! Why don't they leave?
Natalie: The telencephalic inhibitor that restricts higher functions in the Centurions? We had them removed.
Number One: Say what?!
Natalie: You dumbed down the Raiders. We, the Leobens, the Sharons, gave the Centurions the gift of reason.
Number One: You have no authority to do this. None. You can't do anything without a vote!
Natalie: No, we can't do anything with one, so we're finished voting.
(gunshots can be heard in the distance)
Number One: What have you done?
Natalie: First thing they learned is what you were doing to the Raiders. You can imagine how they felt.
Number Five: Oh, no.

Kara: So, you quitely cut me loose in deep space. I'm not afraid to die.
Adama: A little easier after you've been through it once.
Kara: Harder.

Kara: So you think I'm right.
Adama: Maybe. Maybe not. But I know she is, the president. She's been right all along. I'm tired of losing. I'm tired of turning away from the things I want to believe in, and I believe you when you say that you'll die before you stop trying. And I won't lose you again. Now go. Find a way to Earth.

Episode Goofs
When the Centurions come in, one of the Fours, the one closest to Number One, uncrosses his arms. In the very next shot, his arms are crossed again.
