  • Quotes

    • Roslin: (speaking to Apollo) You know, I remember when President Adar sent the Marines into Aerelon. Fifteen people died. In public of course, he had to say all the usual things. He was sure of what he had done, he made the right choice, he stayed the course.

      But he knew it was a mistake. And he kept the names of the dead in his desk drawer. He said that it was imperative for a leader to remember and learn from the mistakes, even if they can't admit to them publicly.

    • Baltar: (to Starbuck) However, without a little risk, life would be so dull, wouldn't it?

    • Roslin: (Adama gives Roslin a book) Thank you. It may be a while before I get this back to you.
      Adama: It's a gift. Never lend books.

    • Commander Adama (to Roslin): There's a reason why you separate military and the police. One fights the enemy of the state, the other serves and protects the people. When the military becomes both, then the enemies of the state tend to become the people.

    • Roslin: I don't think I'll ever get tired of this outfit, seeing as I only have three for the rest of my life.
      Billy: It looks fine.
      Roslin: "Fine"?
      Billy: It looks great.
      Roslin: You don't know anything about women, do you?
