Battlestar Galactica Quotes
Here is Yellow Magpie’s pick of the very best Battlestar Galactica quotes.
Commander William Adama: ‘There’s a reason you separate military and the police. One fights the enemies of the state, the other serves and protects the people. When the military becomes both, then the enemies of the state tend to become the people.’
Colonel Saul Tigh: ‘Where’s your Mommy?’
Boxey: ‘Dead. Where’s yours?’
Doctor Gaius Baltar: ‘Politics is the only thing more boring than blood samples.’
Doctor Gaius Baltar: ‘You’ll forgive me, Madam President, if I don’t wish to be executed based solely on your… gut feeling.’
Doctor Gaius Baltar: Sometimes we must embrace that which opens up to us.
Lt. Sharon ‘Boomer’ Valerii: ‘Embrace?’
Doctor Gaius Baltar: ‘Life can be a curse, as well as a blessing. You will believe me when I say that there are far worse things than death in this world.’
Lt. Sharon ‘Boomer’ Valerii: ‘So what you’re saying is…’
Doctor Gaius Baltar: ‘No, no. What I’m saying means nothing. Listen to your heart. Do that which you truly believe to be right.’
Colonel Saul Tigh: ‘I can’t believe you sided with that woman against the Old Man, I wouldn’t do that if you put a gun to my head, and you did! As far as I’m concerned you’re not fit to wear the uniform.’
Commander William Adama: ‘The Cylon War is long over, yet we must not forget the reasons why so many sacrificed so much in the cause of freedom. The cost of wearing the uniform can be high, but… sometimes it’s too high.
You know, when we fought the Cylons, we did it to save ourselves from extinction. But we never answered the question “Why?” Why are we as a people worth saving? We still commit murder because of greed and spite, jealousy, and we still visit all of our sins upon our children. We refuse to accept the responsibility for anything that we’ve done, like we did with the Cylons.
We decided to play God, create life. And when that life turned against us, we comforted ourselves in the knowledge that it really wasn’t our fault, not really. You cannot play God then wash your hands of the things that you’ve created. Sooner or later, the day comes when you can’t hide from the things that you’ve done anymore.’
