Helo humor: Kobol's Last Gleaming, Part II

Strega over at Television Without Pity has outdone herself again. Check out her hilarious recap for some good Helo-related humor.

Kobol & Chains
Kobol's Last Gleaming, Part II - Apollo's in handcuffs, the Prez is behind bars, one Boomer's pregnant, and the other one just shot Adama. Aren't season finales fun?
She makes some museum jokes early on that I've highlighted (as I'm studying to be museum curator and I guess am a bit of a masochist). Sadly Helo doesn't seem to be a huge art history fan...

Caprica. Day 51. Helo looks at the Delphi Museum of the Colonies, which is an impressively vague name. He turns and snaps, "It's a museum. So what?" Heh. Boomer, whose arm is now in a sling, says it's also "the home of the Arrow of Apollo." Although it sounds more like she said, "the air fapollo." They should have considered calling it "Apollo's Arrow" instead, because that doesn't have all those "oh-uh-ah" sounds in a row. Anyway. Helo asks what the Air Fapollo is, and Boomer sighs, "You never liked history."

She reminds him that the arrow is the only clue to Earth's location. Helo whas, "Who's going to Earth? It doesn't even exist. I'm trying to get back to Galactica." Heh. Okay, I finally figured out what it is I like about Helo's storyline: it's basically a black comedy. I think that's why nearly everything Helo says strikes me as terribly funny. Helo patiently explains that he just wants Boomer to help him to get off the planet and back to his ship. He adds, "If you don't do that, I'm gonna blow your head off." Boomer points out that he's only alive because of her, and tells him to shove his tough-guy attitude up his ass. That was his tough-guy attitude? Oh dear.
Yah black comedy! The rest of the recap is similiarly funny (or if you didn't think this was funny, um... well, similarly unfunny).
