It's close, but sounds more like fraking to me.

It sounds like he realized he was supposed to say "Frakking" a split second before the word "Fucking" came out of his mouth, and he said a hybrid of the two. It sounds more like "frucking".

Re: Did Baltar say "f*ck"?

It's "fuck", I know it's "fuck" because it didn't cause me to roll my eyes as the use of "frak" continues to do to this day.

Re: Did Baltar say "f*ck"?

It is amazing how much discussion has gone into that line. Just Google the question and you get an explosion of results about that one scene and the word. Still of the persuasion that it was just a mumbled "fraking" and it came out a little wrong because of his accent. (and captions say 'fraking') I mean really this is the guy that demanded the secrets of the "Oprah House." If someone is really serious (which seems to be the case considering the unbelievable amount of threads on this) why don't they download Audible, isolate his voice and slow it down?

I rewound the DVR and listened to it about 10 times. It certainly was close-The first time I heard it I thought he said fuck, but on repeat listening it sounds like he said Frak.

Just for the record, being cable, we'll at least be spared that prolonged and unnecessary agony and instead this is just an amusing flub (or not depending how your ears work).
