"Battlestar Galactica: Daybreak: Part 2 & 3 (#4.20)" (2009)
Sharon "Boomer" Valerii: You should know... your Raptor's been destroyed. You can't go back that way.
Lt. Sharon 'Athena' Agathon: Yeah, well, that's not the plan.
Captain Kara 'Starbuck' Thrace: Could we please not tell her the plan?

Sharon "Boomer" Valerii: [watches in disbelief as Simon calmly runs medical tests on Hera, despite the fact Cylon Colony is being invaded] You're gonna just keep doing the tests? Even with the colony coming down among your ears?
Simon: I think you over estimate their chances. They may have confused our Hybrids temporarily, but we have superior fire power and superior numbers, and in the end, its all about about mathematics.
[Boomer then breaks Simon's neck, killing him instantly]


"Battlestar Galactica: Precipice (#3.2)" (2006)
Lt. Sharon "Boomer" Valerii: [Cally has been detained in a Cylon prison, and is visited by the reanimated, specific copy of Sharon Cylon-model that she shot and killed a year before] Hi Cally, it's me... Boomer.
Crewman Specialist Cally: I wish I had a gun!

Lt. Sharon 'Athena' Agathon: How do you know? I mean, how do you really know that you can trust me?
Admiral William Adama: I don't. That's what trust is.


"Battlestar Galactica: Guess What's Coming to Dinner (#4.7)" (2008)
Number Six: Our ship can heal itself. But most of our Raiderswere destroyed in the ambush. We're asking for you help here. We can't do it alone.
President Laura Roslin: What could possibly motivate us to trust you now? What have you got?
Lt. Sharon 'Athena' Agathon: The boxing facility resides within the Cylon Resurrection Hub. This hub controls the functions of every Resurrection ship in existence.
Lt. Sharon 'Athena' Agathon: It protects itself by periodically jumping to a new set of coordinates and relaying them back to the Baseship.
Number Six: [Standing up] Madame President, you asked for a reason to help us. Vengeance. You destroy the Hub, Cylons lose their ability to download. All of us.
President Laura Roslin: Why would you be willing to lose your ability to resurrect?
Number Six: We're rebels. We can't go back. What matters most to us is being with the Five. D'Anna will be able to identify them. We'll take you to the hub if you help us unbox D'Anna.


"Battlestar Galactica: Faith (#4.6)" (2008)
Lt. Sharon 'Athena' Agathon: 'You pick your side, your side and you stick - you don't cut and run when things get ugly. Otherwise you'll never have anything. No love, no family. No life to call your own. - Said to the gathered Number Eight's who want Lt. Sharon Agathon to lead a rebellion.


"Battlestar Galactica: Six of One (#4.2)" (2008)
The Hybrid: [montage of cross-fading images of various Cylon models listening to the Hybrid as she speaks] The excited state decays by vibrational relaxation into the first excited singlet state. Yes, yes, and merrily we go. Reduce atmospheric nitrogen by 0.03%. It is not much consolation that society will pick up the bits. Leaving us at eight modern, where punishment rather than interdiction is paramount. Please cut the fuse. They will not harm their own. End of line. Limiting diffusions to two dimensions increases the number of evolutionary jumps within the species. Rise and measure the Temple of the Five. Transformation is the goal. They will not harm their own.
[fade to a meeting of Cylons: a One, a Two, a Six and an Eight]
The Hybrid: Data-font synchronization complete.
Number Six: The Hybrid is clearly telling us something.
Brother Cavil: [seated authoritatively behind a desk] The Hybrid is always telling us something. They are supposed to maintain operations on each ship, not vomit metaphysics.
[looks for support from the others with no avail]
Brother Cavil: All right. I give up. What? What is she trying to tell us?
Lt. Sharon 'Athena' Agathon: They're in the Colonial Fleet with the humans.
Brother Cavil: They? They who?
Leoben Conoy: The Final Five.
[Cavil turns and looks hostilely]
Number Six: The Raiders refused to fight because they sensed the Final Five might be in the Colonial Fleet.
Leoben Conoy: They could have been caught. They could be in hiding.
Brother Cavil: No, wait, stop. Stop right now. Turn around. Go and take a cleansing walk. And I'm gonna try and forget what I just heard.
Number Six: The Final Five, Cavil, they are near! This is far too important.
Leoben Conoy: What their eyes must have seen, witnessed over time.
Lt. Sharon 'Athena' Agathon: Do they look anything like us?
Brother Cavil: [adamantly] That's enough! Don't you realize what you're doing? You're openly discussing the Final Five.
[pauses to look for chastisement in the others' faces and finding none, explodes]
Brother Cavil: THAT'S FORBIDDEN!
[pauses for effect and continues]
Brother Cavil: You're toying with our survival. Look at yourselves. Look, there's millions of Twos who have that nose. Millions of Sixes possess that mouth. Eights share those breasts and Ones have this brain. We're mechanized copies. There's a reason the original programmers clearly felt that it's a mistake for us to contact the Final Five!
Number Six: No.
Brother Cavil: [continuing despite the Six's protest] Violating that programming threatens our survival!
Number Six: Something has changed.
Brother Cavil: Thoughts have changed. Yes, they change. The Raiders changed. That's where all this started, with them. Somehow they exceeded their programming, and unlike us, they can't correct themselves. So we're gonna have to do it for them.
Number Six: [incredulously] Do what?
Brother Cavil: We'll reconfigure their neural architecture, and shave down their heuristic responses.
Leoben Conoy: Dumb them down? Lobotomize them?
Brother Cavil: They're tools, not pets. But in any case, it has to be done.
Number Six: Says who?
Brother Cavil: Says God almighty, the voice of reason, that's who! When are you gonna hear it?
Number Six: You don't have the authority to make any change without a majority vote.
Brother Cavil: Well, we'll vote. The Fours and Fives will be on my side.


"Battlestar Galactica: Occupation (#3.1)" (2006)
Lt. Sharon 'Athena' Agathon: Can I ask you something, very personal? Do you feel guilty about leaving the people behind on New Caprica?
Commander William Adama: I don't do guilt.
Lt. Sharon 'Athena' Agathon: You know, a year ago, when you put me in this cell, I was at a crossroads. I sat in here for weeks just consumed with rage at all the things that had happened to me. Then at some point I realized that it was all just guilt. I was angry at myself for the choices I had made. Betraying my people... losing the baby... So I had a choice. I could either move forward or stay in the past. But the only way to move forward was to forgive myself. You know, I don't think we can survive. I don't think the fleet, or Galactica, or the people on New Caprica can survive unless the man at the top, finds a way to forgive himself.
