  • Quotes

    • Joseph Adama: Where the hell are we going? Can't we just... Can't we just fly?
      Tad Thorean: Yeah, sure, man. Fly?
      Joseph Adama: Yeah.
      Tad Thorean: Yeah. All right, sure. I was just waiting for the right moment.
      Joseph Adama: Okay.
      Tad Thorean: Okay, now just, all right spread your arms out in front of you. Okay, now, get your chin up to the sky. You're gonna wanna be careful that, when you take off, you don't overcorrect and slam into the building. Now, it's really to hit the building, okay? Just take a deep breath.
      Joseph Adama: Ready.
      Tad Thorean: All right, and... What are you an idiot, man? No, we can't fly. It's a non-fantasy game.
      Joseph Adama: Frak!
      Tad Thorean: Come on, man. Get with the program. If you can't do it in real life, you can't do it in a non-fantasy world. No one has superpowers. No one can fly.

    • Joseph Adama: Hey, listen, so if the rules in here are just like in the real world.
      Tad Thorean: Right.
      Joseph Adama: Well, that's no fun. What kind of world is that?
      Tad Thorean: It's the kind of world where you can shoot someone in the head without going to jail. Frak 50 women in one night without taking vinagro. How about that?
      Joseph Adama: Really?
      Tad Thorean: You're gonna do just fine. Just remember not to die.

    • Amanda: All of this has happened before, and all of it will happen again.
