  • Roslin: Col Tigh was right. Rioting broke out on a cruise ship when they reduced water rations. We need to demonstrate an ability to maintain order. We need to do it now.
  • Adama: We don't have the extra manpower for fleet security.
  • Roslin: You have the only armed, disciplined force available.
  • Adama: Yeah, but I'm not going to be your policeman. There's a reason why you separate military and the police. One fights the enemy 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.

“I want a show with great action and a cool plot”

“I want a show that remains strong through every season”

“I want a show with strong female characters”

“I want a show with amazing writing and acting”

“I want a show with great plot twists and shocking moments”

“This is the Admiral.
Just so there’ll be no misunderstandings later;

Galactica’s seen a lot of history. Gone through a lot of battles.

This will be her last.

She will not fail us if we do not fail her. If we succeed in our mission, Galactica will bring us home. If we don’t… it doesn’t matter anyway.

Action stations! Start the clock.”

-Admiral William ‘Husker’ Adama, Battlestar Galactica S4 E23 - Daybreak Part 3
