Anders: Wonder what Gaeta's gonna do to us.
Tigh: In your case, cut off one of your frakkin' legs.
Zarek: This is Tom Zarek, President of the Twelve Colonies. It's over, Laura. Saul Tigh was killed attempting to escape. Bill Adama was tried and found guilty of his crimes. Firing squad executed him this morning. It's done, Laura. You need to think about the people of this fleet now and surrender.
