Admiral William Adama: I'm interested in navigational weaknesses. Wormholes, dark matter blind spots. Likely ambushes.

--Leoben Conoy (Flesh and Bone)

So she either says "Yes, sir" and obeys a direct order, or you smack her in the mouth, and you drag her sorry ass down to sick bay, and you make her take those pills!"
--Lieutenant Kara Thrace (33)

“The morale of the Fleet continues to rise, due in part to the increasing number of habitable planets we are encountering, and the reintroduction of some of the amenities our people enjoyed before the destruction of the colonies. Once again, although on a limited scale, we are able to partake of music, and the theater, and, when the occasion warrants, even indulge ourselves in ceremony.”
--Commander Adama, opening narration (Take the Celestra)
"You have a path. You will be spared their fate. For once, Gaius, you can stop manipulating the world and let destiny take its course. If there's one thing we know about human beings with certainty, they are masters of self destruction."
