Quotes:
From "Battlestar Galactica: Dirty Hands (#3.16)" (2007)
Dr. Gaius Baltar: I don't sound like I'm from Aerilon?
Chief Galen Tyrol: No.
Dr. Gaius Baltar: Well you know I take that as a particular compliment. I don't know about you, but I've always found the Aerilon dialect to be particularly hard on the ears.

[Baltar again speaks with his Aerilon accent]
Dr. Gaius Baltar: ...finish off the evenin' with a good old-fashioned fight.
[Baltar returns to speaking as he normally does]
