These are the Quotes of the Day for July.
Number Six: You know you're not safe.
Doctor Gaius Baltar: No, course not. The Cylons will follow us again, as they have the last two hundred and thirty-seven times.
Six: You're right, you know. There are limits. Eventually you'll make a mistake.
Baltar: And then you'll kill us all. Yes. Yes, I know, but...not for another thirty-three minutes.
D'anna Biers: Are you afraid when you go into combat?
Lieutenant Margaret "Racetrack" Edmondson: First thing they tell you is to assume you're already dead.
Biers: Well, that sounds ghoulish.
Racetrack: Yeah, maybe. But dead men don't get scared and freeze up under fire. Me, I'm just worried that hell's gonna be a lonely place, and I'm gonna fill it up with every toaster son of a bitch I find.
During the initial test of the Blackbird
Captain Lee Adama: Starbuck, Starbuck, where are you? Starbuck, come in. Starbuck, do you read? Kara, are you okay?
Lieutenant Kara "Starbuck" Thrace: (Turning on the lights of the Blackbird, which is only feet away from Adama's Viper) Of course you lost contact. It's a damned stealth ship, remember?
At the Colonial Day celebration
Major William Adama: Connections. Anne's father has a friend in the Defense Subcommittee.
Tigh: So the new wife comes through. I wish I had in-laws with pull.
Adama: Give me a couple years, I'll have some pull. You watch me. I'll have my own battlestar someday.
Kara "Starbuck" Thrace: Your girlfriend's from a lovely family, good people, great values.
"All of this has happened before and all of this will happen again."
President Laura Roslin: Mr. Zarek. Oh, don't worry, I won't be kissing you today.
Tom Zarek: That's a shame. I shaved very closely in anticipation of being smacked by you.
To Shelly Godfrey in the toilet
Gaius Baltar: Struck a nerve, have I? Which I find rather impossible to believe! You think this is over? This is not over! You have not heard the last! No more Mr. Nice Gaius!
Laura Roslin: Someone took their vitamins this morning.
Billy Keikeya: Yeah, I don't know what got into me.
Doctor Gaius Baltar: Five days now. There are limits. To the human body, to the human mind. Tolerances that you can't push beyond. Well, those are facts. Provable facts! Everybody has their limit.
Doctor Gaius Baltar: No, what you are doing, darling, is boring me to death with your superstitious drivel, your— your metaphysical nonsense. Which, to be fair to you, actually appeals to the half-educated dullards that make up most of human society but which, I hasten to add, no rational, intelligent free-thinking human being truly believes. Which leads me to the inescapable conclusion that Cylons are, in the final— that Cylons are, in the final analysis little more than toasters... with great-looking legs."
--Six Degrees of Separation
Laura Roslin: I fought for a woman's right to control her body my entire career. No. No.
Adama: I'm just remembering what you said. Right after the Cylon attack. That if we really want to save the human race, we'd better start having babies.
President Roslin questions Colonel Tigh about Commander Adama's behavior.
President Laura Roslin: What about the fact that he left the Galactica without telling anyone where he was going or when he would return and at that very moment, a Cylon Raider jumped into view and started acting strangely?
Colonel Saul Tigh: I know exactly where he was.
Roslin: You do?
Tigh: He was picking up my wife.
Ellen Tigh: Sure, there's a lot of whining and complaining, like you would expect. But the people I talked to are mostly hopeful and optimistic.
President Laura Roslin: That's good to hear.
Tigh: Mmm... well, there are a few people who still might wonder if a kindergarten teacher is really the right person to be President but it's just a tiny, tiny minority.
Roslin: Wonderful, wonderful.
Colonel Saul Tigh: What if they're right? What if Sharon has been playing us all, plotting our destruction with every passing day? What if the terrorists are right?
President Laura Roslin: This isn't about Sharon. It's about something much bigger than that. It's about the long term survival of the Fleet. It's about the way we conduct ourselves in all of this.
Laura Roslin: I want to believe you. I want to believe I haven't made such a profound error in judgment in trusting you and asking your advice. But here's where we are, Doctor. If anyone can be a Cylon, and it's hard to tell us apart, then we only have one thing left to trust: our instincts, our feelings. And the moment they told me it was your face in the photo, I knew I believed it. I believe you were involved in the attack, somehow. I feel it.
Gaius Baltar: You'll forgive me, Madame President, if I don't wish to be executed based solely on your gut feeling.
Doctor Cottle: The jaw is set nicely. You're done here. I'm kicking you outta here and sending you back to work.
Specialist Cally: Work? Like this?
Cottle: You gotta love a woman who can complain even with her jaw wired shut.
Upon seeing the biomechanical internals of a downed Cylon Raider
Lieutenant Kara "Starbuck" Thrace: Are you...alive?
The Resistance leaders discuss suicide bombings
Galen Tyrol: This is crazy. You know, we need to figure out whose side we're on.
Saul Tigh: Which side are we on? We're on the side of the demons, Chief. We are 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.
Gina Inviere: Suicide is a sin. But I need to die!
Gaius Baltar: What you need is justice. I know a place where you can stay, where you can be safe, where I can look after you.
Inviere: Why would you do that?
Baltar: Because I love you.
President Gaius Baltar: You have your orders.
Gaius Baltar: I am so sorry. I tried. I tried my best.
Six: God's will was that our child should survive. His will was that she would lead the next generation of God's children. His will was that you would protect her.
Baltar: Yes. (Six slams him up against the wall). Oh!
Six: You have committed a monstrous and unforgivable sin and now you and your entire wretched race are going to suffer God's vengeance.
Lieutenant Kara Thrace: Sleeping?
