  • Quotes (7)

    • Sharon: (points a gun at Adama) I need you to know something. I'm Sharon, but I'm a different Sharon. I know who I am. I don't have hidden protocols or programs lying in wait to be activated. I make my own choices. I make my own decisions and I need you to know that this is my choice.

    • Helo: How much further? Sharon: Farther. Helo: What? Sharon: "Farther" describes actual distance. "Further" is more figurative. Helo: You're a dictionary now? Sharon: I'm sorry I'm smarter than you.

    • Starbuck (muttering): Stupid frakkin' thing couldn't come with a handbook? No, because that would be too logical.
      Roslin (quoting the Book of Pythia): "And the Arrow of Apollo will open the Tomb of Athena".
      Starbuck: Yeah, well unless anyone sees a keyhole or, whatever, then we're either in the wrong place or we're perfectly screwed.

    • Baltar: Then who, or what, are you, exactly? Number Six: I'm an angel of God sent here to protect you, to guide you and to love you. Baltar: To what end? Number Six: To the end of the human race.

    • (Looking through the bars of a cell, Baltar turns and sees No. 6 sitting naked, straddling the chair)
      Baltar: Oh - you decided to brighten up the place a little, did you?
      No. 6: Our child will be born here, in this room. (pauses) You're not listening!
      Baltar: Oh, do you notice? No, I've had enough. Do you seriously expect me to listen to you when you sit around stark naked?

    Notes (2)

    • When Baltar first speaks with Number Six in the holding cell, she is completely nude. After she appears in a jogging outfit and a different hairstyle, Baltar addresses her as Sara, suggesting that this was the name she used on Caprica.

    • Number of Survivors: 47,855

    Trivia (1)

    • In this episode we saw that the Arrow of Apollo opened the Tomb of Athena, which led to a map to Earth. The map was a collection of gems representing the constellations of the Zodiac. Starbuck realized that Earth must be the place where one can see all twelve of the constellations at once.

    Allusions (1)

    • Lagoon Nebula In the map room of the Tomb of Athena, Apollo identified the Lagoon Nebula. Also known by the astronomical catalog numbers M8 and NGC 6523, it is a cloud of interstellar gas 5,200 light-years from Earth, believed to be a breeding area for new stars. It is faintly visible to the naked eye in the constellation of Sagittarius.
