Starbuck: No wonder those little buggers are such good card players.

--Saga of a Star World

Chief Galen Tyrol: You know, sometimes, at work... I try and conjure up what your face looks like. The curve of your lips, the way your hair falls, how you smell.

Valerii: (Giggles playfully).

Admiral William Adama: I'm interested in navigational weaknesses. Wormholes, dark matter blind spots. Likely ambushes.
Sharon (Caprica copy): I would avoid these pulsar pointers because of DRADIS interference. If I was gonna plan an ambush, I'd do it there. It depends, Admiral. They adapt to your every move. Every move triggers a counter-move.

Our job isn't to be careful, it's to shoot Cylons out of the frakkin' sky! "Good hunting" is what you say. And now one of your idiot pilots is acting like a child and refusing to take her pills. 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)
