Movie Quotes from Battlestar Galactica: Quotes from the movie Battlestar Galactica

Adama: (watching Billy & Dru flirting across the bridge) They’d better start having babies.
Tigh: (looks over at the couple) Is that an order?

Adama: Good morning, Starbuck, what do you hear?
Starbuck: Nothin’ but the rain.
Adama: Grab your gun and bring in the cat.
Starbuck: Yes sir.

Adama: I want you to go down to the landing bay and take charge of the damage control party personally.
Tigh: Who? Me?
Adama: You’re either the XO of this ship, or you’re not.

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 and jealousy, and we still visit all of our sins upon our children. We refuse to accept the responsibility for anything we’ve done, like we did with the Cylons. We decided to play God, create life. 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 and 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.

Adama: This is the Commander. Moments ago, this ship received word of a Cylon attack against our homeworlds is under way. We do not know the size or the disposition or the strength of the enemy forces, but all indications point to a massive assault against Colonial defenses. Admiral Nagala has taken personal command of the Fleet aboard the battlestar Atlantia following the complete destruction of Picon Fleet Headquarters in the first wave of the attacks. How, why doesn’t really matter now. What does matter is that as of this moment, we are at war. You’ve trained for this. You’re ready for this. Stand to your duties, trust your fellow shipmates, and we’ll get through this.

Adama: We’re in a shooting war. We need something to shoot with.

Apollo: (speaking to Starbuck who is in the brig) What’s the charge this time?
Starbuck: Striking a superior asshole.

Apollo: (speaking to Starbuck who is in the brig) What’s the charge this time?
Starbuck: Striking a superior asshole.

Apollo: Sir, Apollo is just my call sign. My name is Lee Adama.
Roslin: I know who you are, but Captain Apollo has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?

Baltar: I have to warn them.
Number Six: How do you propose to do that? ‘Oh look, a Cylon device.’ ‘Really? Well, how do you know what a Cylon device looks like, Doctor?’ ‘Oh, I forgot to mention I’m familiar with their technology because I’ve been having sex with a Cylon for the past two years now.’

Baltar: So now you’re, um, you’re telling me you’re a machine?
Number Six: I’m a woman.
Baltar: You’re a machine. You’re a synthetic woman, a robot.
Number Six: I’ve said it three times now.
Baltar: Well, forgive me, I’m having the tiniest little bit of trouble believing it because the last time anyone saw the Cylons they looked more like walking chrome toasters.
Number Six: Those models are still around. They have their uses.

Baltar: The last time anybody saw the Cylons they looked more like walking chrome toasters.

Number Six: Are you alive?
Boxey’s Father: Yes.
Number Six: Prove it.

Number Six: There, there. It’s okay. You’re not going to have to cry much longer.

Number Six: What are you doing?
Baltar: Phoning my attorney.
Number Six: That won’t be necessary.
Baltar: He’ll know what to do. He’ll sort this out. He’s the best in the business.
Number Six: It won’t be necessary because in a few hours no one will be left to charge you with anything.
Baltar: What are you saying?
Number Six: Humanity’s children are returning home. Today.

Roslin: I don’t know why I have to keep telling you this, but the war is over.
Adama: It hasn’t begun yet.

Roslin: There’s no Earth. You made it all up. President Adar and I once talked about the legends surrounding Earth. We knew nothing about a secret location regarding Earth, and if the President knew nothing about it, what are the chances that you do?
Adama: You’re right. There’s no Earth. It’s all a legend.
Roslin: Then why?
Adama: Because it’s not enough to just live. You have to have something to live for. Let it be Earth.
Roslin: They’ll never forgive you.
Adama: Maybe. But in the meantime I’ve given all of us a fighting chance to survive. And isn’t that what you said was the most important thing: survival of the human race?

Starbuck: Permission to speak off the record, sir?
Tigh: Granted.
Starbuck: You’re a bastard.

Starbuck: Why can’t we use the starboard launch?
Tyrol: It’s a gift shop now.
Starbuck: Frack me.

Lee: (to Starbuck who is pushing his Viper back to Galactica) Don’t you think we’re coming in hot?
