  • Quotes

    • Roslin: No one believed that we would survive the Cylon nuclear holocaust, or the hell on New Caprica, or the 50,000 other crises we've lived through. But we did, we're here. We've made this veritable habit out of defying the odds, particularly William Adama. And he is alive. He is alive. And he will take command of this fleet again. And when that day comes, he's gonna know... who stuck with him and who ran. Now, who do you want to be? Who do you want to be?

    • Gaeta: I just hope... I hope that people realize eventually who I am.
      Baltar: I know who you are, Felix. I know who you are.

    • Tom Zarek: (to Gaeta) The truth is told by whoever is left standing.

    • Zarek: It's done, Laura. You need to think about the people of this fleet now and surrender.
      Roslin: No. Not now, not ever. Do you hear me? I will use every cannon, every bomb, every bullet, every weapon I have down to my own eyeteeth to end you. I swear it! I'm coming for all of you!

  • Notes

      Note that in "The Oath", the whiteboard in President Roslin's office indicated that there were 39,644 remaining survivors while the main title sequence displayed 39,643 as the number of survivors.
