These are the Quotes of the Day for December.
Starbuck, upon the realization that Caprica Valerii has just stolen her Cylon Raider:
Lt. Kara Thrace: Bitch took my ride...
Petty Officer Anastasia Dualla: Commander, strike one reports inbound Cylons are bugging out. Request permission to go after them, sir.
Commander William Adama: Tell our people to pursue and destroy.
Dualla: Affirmative. Strike one... tear 'em up.
Number Six: Life has a melody, Gaius. A rhythm of notes that become your existence once played in harmony with God's plan. It's time to do your part and realize your destiny.
Dr. Gaius Baltar: Which is what, exactly?
Six: You are the guardian and protector of the new generation of God's children. The first member of our family will be with us soon, Gaius. It's time to make your choice.
Baltar: But I don't understand what you're talking about. Really, I don't understand—
Six: Come... see the face of the shape of things to come. Isn't she beautiful, Gaius?
"After reviewing your logs, it is my judgment that having your son as Galactica CAG has been a grave mistake. He's been 'insubordinate, even mutinous,' and these are direct quotes from your logs, by the way. And I dare say he's not the only one with disciplinary problems. There's a Kara Thrace who 'habitually strikes fellow officers and disobeys orders.' This Lieutenant Agathon has 'fraternized with and evidently impregnated an enemy agent.' Let's not even discuss your XO..."
--Admiral Helena Cain (Pegasus)
On Galactica's flight deck:
Chief Galen Tyrol: (checking Starbuck's Viper) Captain, how did you land this thing?
Captain Kara Thrace: Pointed it towards the deck and stopped when I got here.
Lieutenant Brendan Costanza: Bone-dry, she says. Landed the bird without a drop of fuel.
Major Lee Adama: (walking up to Kara) If you want to die, I will open up an airlock for you, but you are not taking one of my Vipers with you.
Kara Thrace: The bird's on the deck. I'm on the deck. I don't know what you're bitching about.
Lee Adama: I don't give a frak what you do, Starbuck. You're done flying.
"After they attacked, I never...I never pined over any of my old crap. Never missed (my apartment in Delphi). Stupid view of the parking lot. Broken toilet in the bathroom. You know, everyone I know... is fighting to get back what they had. And I'm fighting 'cause I don't know how to do anything else."
--Kara Thrace (Valley of Darkness)
Colonel Saul Tigh: Oh, couple'a hours rack time does sounds awfully sweet right about now.
Commander William Adama: You deserve it.
Tigh: Like hell. Truth is, all this has me feeling... well, more alive than I have in years.
Adama: You look that way too. It's good to see you without the cup in your hand.
Tigh: Ehh, don't start.
Adama: But I know there's a whole lot of people aboard this ship that wish you weren't feeling as good as you are.
Tigh: If the crew doesn't hate the XO then he's not doing his job. Besides, gotta make the old man look good.
Adama: I always look good.
Tigh: Did you look in the mirror?
Adama: It's one thing to push the crew, it's another thing to break 'em.
Captain Lee Adama: ...I just want you to know, Kara, that I'm your friend. I love you. If there's anything you wanna talk about, anything you wanna get off your chest, then I'm here for you. Anyway... whenever you wanna talk, just let me know.
Lt. Kara Thrace: What was that middle part again?
Adama: Hmm? What do you mean?
Thrace: Did you say you love me?
Adama: (Laughs nervously) Well, um--
Thrace: Lee Adama loves me.
Adama: No, all I meant was--
Thrace: No. Seriously. Very sweet. You love me.
Adama: (Laughs nervously)
Thrace: (in a mock pouting tone) No, you love me. You can't take it back. There's no take-backs.
Karl Agathon: (referring to the rescue on New Caprica) Hey, we all made sacrifices.
Saul Tigh: Is that so?
Agathon: Yes, that's right.
Tigh: Well, while you were pinning wings on your Cylon girlfriend, our people were strapping homemade bombs to their chests, doing what they could to take the bastards out. So forgive me if I don't get all misty over your sacrifices.
"Let me tell you something, Helo. My people may die. My entire race may be wiped out. But this Cylon will keep her word, even if it means she's the last Cylon left in the universe."
--Lieutenant Sharon Agathon (A Measure of Salvation)
Laura Roslin: Commander Adama has no idea where Earth is. He never did. He made it up in order to give people hope.
Starbuck: You're lying.
Roslin: Go ask him.
Starbuck: I will.
Imperious Leader: Welcome, Baltar. I have grave news. A handful of Colonials prevail, but we will soon find them.
Baltar: What of our bargain? My colony was to be spared!
Imperious Leader: I now alter the bargain.
Baltar: How can you change one side of a bargain?
Imperious Leader: When there is no other side. You have missed the entire point of the war.
Baltar: But I have no ambitions against you!
Imperious Leader: Could you think me so foolish as to trust a man who would see his own race destroyed?
Baltar: Not destroyed, subjugated, under me.
Imperious Leader: There can be no survivors. So long as one human remains alive, the Alliance is threatened.
Baltar: Surely you don't mean me?
Imperious Leader: We thank you for your help, Baltar. Your time is at an end.
Boomer: Just keep it up, old buddy, you're going to get us into real trouble.
Starbuck: Ten thousand light years from nowhere, our planet shot to pieces, people starving, and I'm gonna get us in trouble?
Commander William Adama: Mr. Gaeta. I want to see all recon material on Kobol immediately in my quarters.
Commander Lee Adama: I've got a date with a jump rope. Hey, I've lost half a stone.
Admiral William Adama: Keep jumpin'.
Captain Lee Adama: So what's the charge this time?
Captain Karl Agathon: Genocide? So that's what we're about now?
Major Lee Adama: They're not human! They were built, not born. No fathers, no mothers, no sons, no daughters--
Karl Agathon: I had a daughter. I held her in my arms.
(On peering within the "cockpit" of a Cylon Raider)
"Oh... my... gods... you bite me and I'll bite you back. So, I guess the only thing flying you, is you. This must be your brain."
(She tears at the brain mass and tosses it out of the ship)
"I don't think you'll need it. It's a good thing that I brought one of my own."
"As I told you, we were tracking a Cylon fleet when we found Galactica. And now that I've had a chance to compare their route to your ship's, it's quite clear that they've been following you. Well, our recon so far tells us the fleet is composed of two base ships, about a dozen or so support ships and one large vessel that we are still unable to identify."
--Admiral Helena Cain (Pegasus)
Commander William Adama: I took your advice, met on common ground.
Roslin: What was that?
Adama: We both wanted to live.
Captain Apollo: They're really going to give us a medal?
Lt. Starbuck: Did I say us? Think they're just decorating me.
