Quotes:
From "Battlestar Galactica: Daybreak: Part 2 & 3 (#4.20)" (2009)
Brother Cavil: [holding Hera at gunpoint after overpowering a CIC gaurd] This makes it alot easier. I just take the girl and I'm out of here!
Admiral William Adama: [with a gun trained on Cavil] Not a chance!
Number Six: Cavil, we won't let you take Hera. You know that.
Brother Cavil: I know nothing of the kind. I know I'm going to watch you chase your tail across the universe for another four years.
Colonel Saul Tigh: That's not going to happen!
Brother Cavil: This thing is the key to my people's survival, and I'm not leaving without it!
Doctor Gaius Baltar: Hera's not a thing! She's a child, and she holds the key to humanity's survival as well!
Brother Cavil: And how do you know that?
Doctor Gaius Baltar: [glances briefly at Head-Six and Head-Baltar] I see angels, angels in this very room. Now, I may be mad, but that doesn't mean that I'm not right. Because there's another force at work here. There always has been. It's undeniable. We've all experienced it. Everyone in this room has witnessed events that they can't fathom, let alone explain by rational means. Puzzles deciphered in prophecy. Dreams given to a chosen few. Our loved ones, dead, risen. Wheather we want to call that "God" or "gods" or some sublime inspiration or a divine force we can't know or understand, it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. It's here. It exists, and our two destinies are entwined in its force.
Brother Cavil: If that were true, and that's a big "if", how do I know this force has our best interests in mind? How do you know that God is on your side, Doctor?
