  • Quotes

    • Apollo: (regarding the Alliance commander) I could grow to dislike this man.
      Starbuck: What do you mean "grow to"?

    • Tigh: Adama, no time to explain. Launch at once! Repeat, launch at once!
      Adama: It won't work!
      Tigh: Adama! I'm in command! Launch!

    • Adama: Baltar, put down your arms and surrender. There's no way to escape.
      Baltar: Hahaha! You're wonderful. I hold a blade to your throat and you give orders.

    • Starbuck: Baltar, Nomen and the Enforcers. At least we have all our enemies in the same place...!
      Apollo: ...including the Council!

    • Adama: (to Siress Tinia) Colonel Tigh is a very good warrior which, I'm sure, you'll come to realize in time.
      Siress Tinia: Adama, you are all good warriors but what we need now are good diplomats.

    • Baltar: Well, now, Lt. Boomer! How nice to see you! Too bad Starbuck and Apollo aren't here. I could settle all my debts at once.

    • Borellian: (to Baltar) Your record to date does not exactly inspire confidence.
      Baltar: I... uhh... had incompetent followers.

    • Adama: If you are the strongest force in the universe, how do you explain the Galactica?
      Commandant: Your Battlestar is quite impressive. However, it is but a single warship. We will dispatch it as the wolf pack does the bear.
