    • The Great Escape

      In this episode's cliffhanger, the Cylons allow their human prisoners to step out of the transport under the pretense of a "rest break," apparently only to mow the prisoners down with gunfire.

      This parallels a scene near the end of the John Sturges movie The Great Escape (1963) in which fifty escaped POWs are captured by Gestapo officers, allowed to "stretch their legs," and then executed by machine gun.

      In his podcast, Ronald Moore confirmed the reference to the scene in The Great Escape.
