Episode Notes
Survivor count: 47,887

Originally, Baltar was to be confronted by a cigar-smoking character calling himself God, and was intended for Dirk Benedict who played Starbuck in the original series. However, the idea was scrapped for generally going too far.



Episode Quotes
Sharon: I have feelings.
Helo: You have software.
Sharon: I don't know if you can hear this or not, Helo, but what we had between us was important. It was very important.
Helo: Why?
Sharon: Because it was the next step. Because it brings us closer to God.
Helo: Don't mock the Gods. It's a human belief. I'm human. They're our gods.
Sharon: But beyond that, I just want you to know that I genuinely feel something for you.
Helo: I don't care. I don't love you. I loved what I thought was you.
Sharon: Helo, I think there's something else that you should know. I'm pregnant.

Tigh: (to Roslin) I'm placing you under arrest.
Lee: No. No, we're not doing this.
Tigh: I'm in command here, Captain.
Lee: Colonel, this is wrong!
Tigh: You're relieved! Fall back. Madam President, I would --
Lee: (pulls a gun on Tigh) Men, lay down your weapons.
Tigh: Have you lost your frakking mind?
Lee: Colonel, tell these marines to fall back!
Tigh: This is mutiny. You know that.
Lee: Yes I do, but you can tell my father that I'm listening to my instincts, and my instincts tell me that we cannot sacrifice our democracy just because the President makes a bad decision.



Episode Goofs
When talking to Crashdown about "tactical employment", the Chief's hands go from hanging at his side to being on his hips between cuts.

A specific camera shot shows a crewmember as Kara prepares and shoots the glass case of the Arrow of Apollo.
