Memorable Moments


  • When Tyrol confronts Crashdown about sending Tarn to get the second med kit, as the camera is on Tyrol's back he is standing on lower ground than Crashdown, but when has them face-to-face, they are standing at the same level.


  • Tigh: This is Bill Adama's ship. This is his command. His orders are still the word of the Gods on this ship. Just so we're clear. This will be Adama's command until the day he dies. And we are not going to let him die. So say we all.
  • Helo: I'm not going to let you kill her! Okay? She's carrying my child.
Kara: My Gods, men are so painfully stupid sometimes! How do you know that?
Helo: I know, all right? She is not lying.
Kara: They lie about everything, Helo. Their entire existence is a lie. They're not human, Helo, they're machines. You can't have a baby with a machine.
  • Roslin: Colonel, once you find the fleet, I'd like to have a word with you.
Tigh: There's nothing to talk about. You went up against the Old Man and you lost.
