Quotes:
From "Battlestar Galactica: Home: Part 2 (#2.7)" (2005)
Commander William Adama: [after being reunited on Kobol, the President and the Commander sit down by a campfire to talk] You interfered with a military mission and you broke your word to me.
President Laura Roslin: It's the second part that really bothers you isn't it?
Commander William Adama: Laura I forgive you.
President Laura Roslin: Thank you Bill. I didn't ask for your forgiveness.
Commander William Adama: Well, you have it anyway.
President Laura Roslin: Lt. Thrace says there are survivors on the Colonies. There are people fighting against the Cylons everyday. They are fighting for their homes, their future.
Commander William Adama: I see.
President Laura Roslin: It doesn't give you pause? Maybe your impulse the day the Cylons attacked was right. Maybe we should have stayed and fought for our homes. Maybe the President of the Colonies should have stayed and fought with her people.
Commander William Adama: I didn't come here for this. I didn't come here to lay blame or to catalogue our mistakes. We made a decision to leave the Colonies after the attack. We made the decision. It was the right one then and it's the right one now. Because every moment of every day since then is a gift.
President Laura Roslin: From the gods.
