A Season Two dialog, for your examination

A middle Season Two vignette,

---

"Cally, wait."

"Specialist Haley, What's going on?"

"I just needed to ask you a question."

"The Chief is doing an engine breakdown on the deck right now if you want to see another one. This is the end of my shift, you know."

"It's not that. I do understand the thruster link on the vipers now. It's something else."

"Yeah?"

"Well, you know we all lost people in the Cylon attack. And we all need to move on, make new friends, find someone special."

"And?"

"You're thinking of Galen, right?"

"Don't. Chief Tyrol'll never look at me that way. Still blames me for his pet toaster."

"I think he will, but I want to know what you think about somebody I have my eye on."

"Okay, who is the lucky guy?"

"It's Felix."

"Lieutenant Gaeta? Oh, Haley."

"What? Is there something wrong with him? Does he have somebody already?"

"I'm afraid your gaydis needs an overhaul."

"Gaydis?"

"You're from Gemenon, right?"

"Yeah. What about it?"

"It's a big galaxy out there and not everybody is as straight and narrow as you're used to. Gaydis is like dradis but it gives you a sense when a man is, you know, not interested in women."

"You think he's gay."

"I just don't want you to get your hopes up."
