Roslin then asks if he allowed the Cylons, that blonde that she saw him with on Caprica, to access the Defense Mainframe. Before he answers, his Inner Six tells him to be careful, because she'll throw him out an airlock. He says that he didn't collude with the Cylons in the genocide of his own people.
