Quotes:
From "Battlestar Galactica: Crossroads: Part 2 (#3.20)" (2007)
Doctor Gaius Baltar: I knew right from the very start that if there was a way to demonstrate the sheer - what's the word I'm looking for... hypocrisy. Hypocrisy is the word I'm looking for... Hypocrisy of the prosecution's case then really the judges would have no other option but to find me not guilty.
Romo Lampkin: Well your boundless confidence provided us with great solace throughout the proceedings.
Doctor Gaius Baltar: Look I want to thank you both. Truly. From the bottom of my heart. I am very, very grateful for all you've done. On a personal note, if I could've seen the Admiral squirm just a little bit more, it wouldn't have hurt.

Doctor Gaius Baltar: Fine.

Doctor Gaius Baltar: Wait a minute. What about me? Wait a minute, wait please! Think about this for a second. Where am I going to live? What am I going to do? How am I going to survive?
Romo Lampkin: Much as I hate to use a cat metaphor, Doctor, I think you'll land on your feet.
