Quotes:
From "Battlestar Galactica: Guess What's Coming to Dinner (#4.7)" (2008)
[the President is addressing a meeting of the Quorum with Admiral Adama and other members of the military behind her]
President Laura Roslin: I am here because I want to tell you face to face that I believe in this mission and what it means for our future. I'm here to profess my trust in our new allies. I'm here to ask you to listen. I'm here to ask for your support.
President Laura Roslin: [to the marines at the door] Bring her in.

Number Six: In our civil war, we've seen death. We've watched our people die. Gone forever. As terrible as it was beyond the reach of the Resurrection ships, something began to change. We could feel a sense of time, as if each moment held its own significance. We began to realize that for our existence to hold any value, it must end. To live meaningful lives, we must die and not return. The one human flaw that you spend your lifetimes distressing over... Mortality is the one thing... Well, it's the one thing that makes you whole.
[Looking at Starbuck who's standing at the back in front of the door]
Number Six: I believe it was no accident that we were found by Kara Thrace. It was destiny. She asked me to leave my people, and I accepted. No matter what the sacrifice, even if it should mean my death...
[Trance-like fade to memories of the Hybrid speaking to Starbuck]
The Hybrid: Thus shall it come to pass. The dying leader shall know the truth of the opera house. You are the harbinger of death, Kara Thrace.
[Suddenly we are back at the meeting with Starbuck looking dazed and glancing toward the President]
