Battlestar Galactica: The Woman King

For the second time, this episode originally ended with a portion of a "bonus" scene. The scene is of Helo confessing to Adama that he killed the Cylon prisoners in "A Measure of Salvation".

Zarek has been kept on as Vice President.

When this episode aired, Bruce Davison was credited as a Guest Star, elavated to Special Guest Star on DVD. The reason why remains unknown.

The recap sequence includes footage pertaining to Helo and his managing the refugees. However, this is not actually taken from an earlier episode. Additionally, Nicki Clyne is credited solely for her appearance in this recap.

Episode Quotes
Gaius Baltar: (to Caprica-Six) You’re here because you want to be human, but there’s a trick to being human: you have to think only about yourself.

Helo: If you thought Dr. Robert was dangerous, why let him treat your son? I mean, you said you were warned.
Mrs. King: I couldn’t believe anyone could have that much hate inside of them.

Dr. Robert: Now, you know how painful this disease is at the end, and they don't want our help. Now, why waste time, and meds, and space on them when all of those resources could go to those who really deserve it? Who gets the medication when there's not enough to go around? The Sagittaron who won't even raise a finger to save his own race, or a Viper pilot?
Dr. Cottle: What the hell happened to "do no harm," Doctor?
Dr. Robert: Look, I intervened because someone has to make the tough choices here, but it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter, because look at them. They're going to destroy themselves anyway. Look at them. Look at them out there. They're like worms crawling on a hot rock. Remember what you used to say, Saul? "Aside from a Cylon, is there anything that you hate more than a Sagittaron?"
Tigh: I'll tell you what I hate, Mike. Being wrong. Captain Agathon?
Helo: Sir?
Tigh: Arrest this son of a bitch. Gag him if you have to.
Helo: My pleasure, sir.
