From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide

Commander Barry Garner: I have a problem. That problem's name is Kara Thrace.

Major Lee Adama: I-I know to handle her, sir. And for the record, she is one hell of a Viper pilot.

Garner: What? I should cut her some slack because she's good in the cockpit. Is that what you're saying? Because nobody ever cut us any slack in the engine room. I could tell you that right now. But then, uh, I don't know, maybe being a snipe is different than being a Viper jockey. No flashy stunts for us. No flying by the seat of our pants down there! The engine room is like a finely tuned watch, and everything in it needs to be monitored and maintained in a very precise fashion. Nobody freelances. Everything is done in the proper way, at the proper time, in the proper order! Or there'd be no power. No lights. No hot showers for your flyboys. You know, Major, I think some of the people around here could learn a thing or two from the snipes.
