These are the Quotes of the Day for June.

Commander Jack Fisk: Is Madam President always so "right in your face"?

--Black Market

Cottle is preparing to do an autopsy o­n Fisk.

Dr. Cottle: Admiral, Colonel, I'm just getting started, but from the looks of him, I'd say he was garroted.

Cottle: Admiral, you might want to take a look at this. Looks like our friend, Fisk, hit the jackpot.

President Laura Roslin: From the Gods.
Adama: No. From you.

Gaius Baltar: I hear that you've been going off by yourself. "Doing things."

Number Three: Really? Now who would tell you anything about my business?
Baltar: So it's true.
Three: Caprica?
Baltar: Did you know you have some dried goo in your hair? That can happen when you resurrect. You know, now I'm beginning to understand just what you've been doing with yourself all these afternoons.
Three: Do you have any idea of what you are accusing me of?
Baltar: Yes. Intentionally killing yourself over and over so you can download over and over. But death's just a revolving door, isn't it?

--"The Passage"

Lieutenant Starbuck: I had this, uh, wonderful speech all prepared...

Cassiopeia: About this being your last night here? About possibly not seeing another night as beautiful as this one, or another girl as beautiful as I am, ever again?

Gaius Baltar: What are you suggesting? That we throw it out of an airlock?

President Laura Roslin: I don't make suggestions Mr. Baltar. If I want to toss a baby out an airlock, I'd say so.

[ After discussing Kara Thrace's fate ]

Commander William Adama: Yeah, I guess I'm just a crazy old man.

--Battlestar Galactica (2005 Novel)

Chief Galen Tyrol: You are loading, are you not?


Lt. Felix Gaeta: Sir, I'm running every diagnostic we've got. Checking each line of code could take days.

--Flight of the Phoenix

--Flight of the Phoenix

Lieutenant Kara Thrace: Ummm. I have my flaws too.

Colonel Saul Tigh: The difference is, my flaws are personal, yours are professional.

--Bastille Day

Commander William Adama: Politics. As exciting as war. Definitely as dangerous.

Adama: You're still standing.
