Episode Quotes
Number Three: Boomer's an Eight. Shouldn't she be on the other side?
Number One: Boomer's my pet Eight. She's seen the light of reason. And an Eight can make a passionate ally.
Number Three: Until she sees something shiny.

Elosha: The ancients used to say, "A people is only as strong as the body of its leader."
Roslin: If I follow that thought, are you saying that humanity died because I died? If you're my subconscious, I've gotta say you're a little full of myself.

Baltar: There was this dog, see, and the master had placed a bit of food on the edge of its snout and the dog had to wait until he was told he could eat it.
(the Centurion tilts its head)
Baltar: I know. Pathetic. Pathetic, isn't it?

Baltar: Do you know why I'm so serene right now?
Roslin: You're doped out of your mind?
Baltar: Because I know God. You need God, Laura. Really, you'd be a different woman. I know God. Therefore, I know myself. Truth is, I was harbouring the most awful, desperate guilt. A heavy, dark, unimaginable, soul-breaking guilt. Now it's gone. Now it's gone. It's been transformed into... I have been transformed.
Roslin: What was your guilt about?
Baltar: I have no guilt.
Roslin: What was your guilt about?
Baltar: I gave the access codes to the Cylons. They wiped out most of humanity. Of course, I didn't know that's what I was doing at the time exactly, but that's what I did. And when I realised what I had done, the magnitude, in that moment, I was saved. I was loved by God. Looking back, I think I was rewarded.
Roslin: Rewarded.
Baltar: Pythia talks about the flood that wiped out most of humanity. Nobody blames the flood. A flood is a force of nature. Through the flood, mankind is rejuvenated, born again. I was another flood, you see. I blamed myself. I blamed myself. But God made the man that made that choice. God made us all perfect. And in that thought, all my guilt flies away, flies away like a bird. I can give you that peace, Laura, that freedom.

Elosha: I'm not saying Baltar's done more good than harm in the universe. He hasn't. The thing is, the harder it is to recognise someone's right to draw breath, the more crucial it is. If humanity is going to prove itself worthy of surviving, it can't do it on a case-by-case basis. A bad man feels his death just as keenly as a good man.

Number Three: So you know about the Final Five?
Roslin: I know they're supposed to know the way to Earth.
Number Three: But you don't know that you're one of them.
(Roslin takes in the revelation when Three snickers)
Number Three: Your face! Oh, it's ridiculous.
