Commander William Adama: [Adama finds Lee sitting alone in the Viper hangar the night before a big mission. He sits next to him] Can't sleep? I couldn't either before a big op.

[Looks at Viper]

Commander William Adama: Mark II. Good ship. Got me out of a lot of tough scrapes. Got something for you. Belonged to your grandfather.

[Hands Lee a cigarette lighter]

Commander William Adama: My mom bought it for him when he was in law school. See the engraving on it?

Captain Lee 'Apollo' Adama: [the lighter reads 'Joseph Adama'] Yeah I can barely make it out but...

Commander William Adama: He was a better father than I was. Dad used to carry that into court cases. Claimed he never lost unless he left it behind.

Captain Lee 'Apollo' Adama: So you're worried too?

Commander William Adama: About what?

Captain Lee 'Apollo' Adama: You know sometimes it feels like the whole ship thinks uh, Starbuck would do better.

Commander William Adama: I don't.

Captain Lee 'Apollo' Adama: How can you be so sure?

Commander William Adama: Because you're my son.

[the two stare quietly at each other for a moment]

Commander William Adama: Get some rest. You're gonna need it.

[Gets up to walk away]

Captain Lee 'Apollo' Adama: Dad?

[Holds up lighter]

Captain Lee 'Apollo' Adama: I'll bring it back.

Commander William Adama: You better, or I'll kick your ass. That's a good lighter.

Elosha: Three thousand six hundred years ago, Pythia wrote about the exile and the rebirth of the human race. And the Lords anointed a leader to guide the caravan of the heavens to their new homeland. And unto the leader they gave a vision of serpents, numbering two and ten as a sign of things to come.

President Laura Roslin: Pythia wrote that?

Elosha: She also wrote that the new leader suffered a wasting disease and would not live to enter the new land. But you're not dying.

[pause]

Elosha: Are you?

Number Six: All of this has happened before. All of this will happen again.

Dr. Gaius Baltar: Everyone knows that verse. What are you getting at?

Number Six: Remember this one? Led by serpents numbering two and ten.

Dr. Gaius Baltar: The Vipers, they're the serpents?

Number Six: There's a later verse, Gaius. You should read it. Though the outcome favoured the few, it led to a confrontation at the home of the gods.
