Starbuck thought she wrote it - it came to her from somewhere, anyway.

She didn't think she wrote it. She said that her father taught her the song.

She should explain that to the Final Five. They're very confused by it.

Not much of a revelation to hang an hour on. Pure X-Files.

Re: "Someone to Watch Over Me" Live Commentary

I didn't catch the spelling of Starbuck's father's name on the cassette in the cache of personal items. What was it?

All I remember was the tape said "Live at the Opera House". Hmmm, about that....

I wonder if "Dreilide" is some code mixed up word for something.

If I'm not mistaken, "drei lide" in german means "three eyelids". Hmmm? Probably doesnt mean anything.

Well, Dreilide's counterpart in TOS was Chameleon (i.e. Fred Astaire), and real chameleons have a kind of 'third eyelid'...

According to BSG Wiki:

'The name 'Dreilide' is German for 'three eyelids' ('drei Lide') and refers to the inner (third) eyelid, regarded as the gateway to the soul and realms of higher consciousness. The third eye is often associated with visions, clairvoyance, precognition, and out-of-body experiences, and people who have allegedly developed the capacity to use their third eyes are sometimes known as seers."

Seconded and seconded.

BTW, I'm still wondering what all that new data was that was showing up on Anders's biomonitor was, at the end of "Deadlock". My theory, is that Six and Tigh's baby was downloading into Anders.

Either that, or Windows Vista. Either way, bad.

And as I said...Fred Astaire is Starbuck's father.
