Boxey: Would you like me to tell you a story, like you do when I'm in sickbed?
Commander Adama: Oh, that would be nice.
Boxey: There once was a shiny planet...
Commander Adama: Called Earth.
Boxey: No. Called Mushieland.
Commander Adama: Mushieland?
Boxey: And it was full of daggits. Orange daggits, blue daggits, daggits with horns, daggits with curly tails. The best daggit of them all was Sire Muffy.
Commander Adama: [Chuckling] Sire Muffy...
[after crashing on a Cylon held swamp planet, Starbuck has been captured by a Cylon patrol]
Cylon Centurion: These humanoids are not well constructed. They damage easily.
Lieutenant Starbuck: At least we don't rust!
Cylon Centurion: Silence.
Lieutenant Starbuck: Well, I always wanted to meet a woman as long on brains as she was on beauty.
Lieutenant Starbuck: Miri, when you get back to the Galactica, you'll have every viper pilot in the place battling it out over you. You'll drive them crazy.
Miri: Perhaps they won't...
Lieutenant Starbuck: Kill me? Miri, you saw what the Cylons did to the people here.
Miri: They haven't executed father...
Lieutenant Starbuck: Cause you've been a laser in their side.
Lieutenant Starbuck: Do you really expect the Cylons to go through with this trade?
Kyle: I certainly do. I planned it rather well.
Commander Adama: With that doorway guarded like the gateway to Kobol, I presume something important has happened. The recon patrol?
Col. Tigh: It's what you felt all along sir, the Cylons have penetrated more deeply than we expected. Our patrol was ambushed.
Specter: I apologise for the delay. The captured warrior is still unconscious. He may even terminate.
Specter: Unfortunately, we are programmed to destroy humans, not save them. Our knowledge of their anatomy is so limited.
Specter: Well, we have had our problems.
Specter: This planet is so wet, half our garrison is down with rust.
Lieutenant Starbuck: Ah yes, Miri. You could've broken half the hearts on the Galactica... including mine.
Lieutenant Starbuck: [to Boomer] Did you bring the clean uniform?
Lieutenant Starbuck: [she brings him food] Oh, that smells good. I didn't realize I was so hungry.
[looks up at her]
Lieutenant Starbuck: You're also their teacher?
Miri: It's very important to keep their education going.
Lieutenant Starbuck: I always wanted to meet a woman as long on brains as she was on beauty.
Miri: [smiles graciously] You think I'm pretty?
Ariadne: Oh, Miri...
Miri: [yelling over her shoulder at the children] Eat!
Lieutenant Starbuck: Miri, when you get back to the Galactica, you'll have every Viper pilot in the place battling it out over you. You'll drive them crazy.
Miri: [doesn't understand] Back to the Galactica?
Lieutenant Starbuck: Yes. You can't stay here. When the rescue team from the fleet comes to pick me up, you'll come with us.
Kyle: Well, you're looking fit, Lieutenant.
Lieutenant Starbuck: Whatever Miri put on my leg, it's working. Thanks, Miri.
Miri: [tending him] Please... please, try... try not to move. You have been hurt.
Lieutenant Starbuck: [remembering through the pain] There were others...
Miri: My brothers and sister.
Lieutenant Starbuck: And Cylons.
Miri: Don't worry. We can handle them. Kyle is very, very smart.
Lieutenant Starbuck: Kyle?
Miri: My brother. He's our leader.
Lieutenant Starbuck: Leader? But he's only a boy, and the others were just... children.
Kyle: [entering] We are not children. We are warriors. Miri, prepare some food. The others will soon return from patrol.
Lieutenant Starbuck: Patrol? Those boys and that little girl... out there with Cylons crawling around? You realize what can happen?
Miri: [guiltily, as she tends the hostage] You need not worry about an infection. It looks much better.
Lieutenant Starbuck: [sighs] Terrific. I can walk to my execution.
Miri: Oh, please don't, Starbuck. Perhaps they won't...
Lieutenant Starbuck: Kill me? Miri, you saw what the Ceylons did to the people here.
Miri: [struggling with emotions] They haven't executed father.
Lieutenant Starbuck: 'Cause you have been a laser in their side. They're probably trying to find your location through him. Or wait for just what happened - a trade.
Miri: We will continue to attack them. Perhaps we can get you back too.
Lieutenant Starbuck: How? Trade another human for me? Huh? No thanks, Miri. I couldn't live with that.
