  • Quotes

    • Sam Adama: Someone tries to make you feel guilty, you figure out what they feel guilty about. You talk about that. Also, don't smoke. You know why?
      William Adama: Uh, because it's bad for you maybe?
      Sam Adama: No. Life's bad for you. You don't smoke because they can get genetic data off a cigarette butt now.

    • (When they are about to be arrested by the police)
      Sam Adama: Stick around! Stick around! If you run away, you're guilty of two things: the thing and the running away from the thing.

      Serge: The crowd goes frakking wild, sir. They're tearing the seats. It's bedlam.
      Daniel: Thank you! Thank you!
      Serge: They demand another hour of game time, sir.

    • Drew: Great piece of engineering.
      Philomon: Yeah, I know. She gives me the chills.
      Drew: (glares at Philomon) "She?" Dude, stop feminizing it. It's weird. It's unnatural.
      Philomon: I don't think there's anything wrong with feminizing it.
      Drew: Nothing wrong with it? It's not a person. It's useful. Just a tool.

    • Officer Mendez: So what are you doing, Sam? Running a criminal school?
      Sam: Yeah, you wanna join? Better pay, top benefits.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • There were clues in this episode which allude to the origins of the Cylons belief in One True All Knowing Loving God as described in Battlestar Galactica Re-imagined, specifically Zoe's avatar inside the Cylon body, the first intelligent robot, and she believes in the One True God so this is likely the origins of this belief for the Cylons in Battlestar Galactica Re-imagined.
