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...


"Hey! We'll sleep when we're dead. C'mon!"
--Chief Galen Tyrol (33)

On Caprica during the fight with the Cylons:

Samuel Anders: You got any great ideas in that military brain of yours?
Kara Thrace: Do the same thing we always do; fight 'em 'till we can't.

--Lay Down Your Burdens, Part II

"Though the outcome favored the few, it led to a confrontation at the home of the gods."
--The Pythian Prophecy

"So from what I could tell, the Cylons have a plan for Caprica. They're cleaning up the bodies, bringing in the heavy machinery to fix the infrastructure."
--Kara Thrace (Home, Part II)

"So what's your plan here? Personally, I tend to go with what you know. 'Til something better turns up."
--William Adama (Scattered)

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.

--The Hand of God

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?

--Kobol's Last Gleaming, Part II

"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)

"O­ne more bit of news I should convey, Zeus has returned to Olympus. Adama is back in command."
--Tom Zarek (The Farm)

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: Seriously...
Tigh: Sir.
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.

--Home, Part I

In the rec room on Galactica:

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)

Kara "Starbuck" Thrace": The old man is our last chance to find Earth. He knows where it is. He said so. You were there. The location is a secret, but he is going to take us there.

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.

-- Kobol's Last Gleaming, Part I

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.

--Saga of a Star World

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?

--Saga of a Star World

Commander William Adama: Mr. Gaeta. I want to see all recon material o­n Kobol immediately in my quarters.

Lt. Felix Gaeta: Aye, sir.
Colonel Saul Tigh: Kobol?
Adama: Yes. I'm putting the fleet back together. I'm putting our family back together. This ends now.

--Home, Part I

( In a detention cell on New Caprica after seeing Sharon "Boomer" Valerii again )

"Frak you Sharon, you stupid frakked-up toaster! How many times do I have to shoot you anyway?"

-- Cally Tyrol (Precipice)

Commander Lee Adama: I've got a date with a jump rope. Hey, I've lost half a stone.

Admiral William Adama: Keep jumpin'.

-- Collaborators

Major Lee Adama: Get down to the hangar deck.

Captain Kara Thrace: What?
Adama: Look, you're the best pilot we got, so get down there and find a Viper.
Thrace: It's about time you admit that.

--The Captain's Hand

Captain Lee Adama: So what's the charge this time?

Lt. Kara Thrace: Striking a superior asshole.


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.

--A Measure of Salvation

(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."

--Kara Thrace, on an unnamed moon, "You Can't Go Home Again"

"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)

"We're at war against an enemy with a vastly superior force. I will not sacrifice the few people we have left o­n the altar of public outrage."
--Commander William Adama (Final Cut)

Laura Roslin: Thank you. None of this would have been possible if you hadn't trusted the Cylon.

Commander William Adama: I took your advice, met o­n common ground.
Roslin: What was that?
Adama: We both wanted to live.

--Flight of the Phoenix

Captain Apollo: They're really going to give us a medal?

Lt. Starbuck: Did I say us? Think they're just decorating me.
[ Apollo and Starbuck leave closing hatch before scanner picks up transmission ]
Buzz Aldrin: 300 feet, down three and a half. 47 forward. 50 down and two and a half. 19 forward. 100 feet, three and a half down. Nine forward. 40 feet down, two and a half. Picking up some dust. Faint shadow.
Houston Capcom: We copy you down Eagle.
Neil Armstrong: Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed.

--The Hand of God
