Memorable Moments


  • Tyrol: You know, we need to figure out whose side we're on.
    Tigh: Which side are we on? We're on the side of the demons, Chief. We're evil men in the gardens of paradise. Sent by the forces of death to spread devastation and destruction wherever we go. I'm surprised you didn't know that.
  • Adama: Sharon can penetrate the Cylon defenses…The centurions can't distinguish her from the other humanoid models, did you know that?…They were deliberately programmed that way. The Cylons didn't want them becoming self-aware and suddenly resisting orders. They didn't want their own robotic rebellion on their hands. You gotta appreciate the irony.
  • Roslin: We are talking about people blowing themselves up!
    Tigh: You know, sometimes I think that you got ice water in those veins and other times I think you're just a naïve little schoolteacher. I've sent men on suicide missions in two wars now, and let me tell you something: It don't make a goddamn bit of difference whether they're riding in a Viper or walking out onto a parade ground. In the end they're just as dead.
  • Zarek: Tell me something, Laura. Last year, you tried to steal the election, didn't you?
    Roslin: Yes, I did, Tom.
    Zarek: (chuckles) Ah, I wish you'd gone through with it.
    Roslin: Me too.
