Commander Adama: And only a short while after we gathered to honor Commander Kronus in duty, so must we now gather again to honor him in death. Let us remember him not only as a warrior who died heroically in conflict but as a man who lived in pursuit of excellence. Now, we return this warrior to the cradle of space.
Commander Adama: We are assembled here today to honor a man of accomplishment. A man who rose from the ranks and became Commander of the Battlestar Rycon and the fourth Colonial fleet. Although gravely wounded at the battle of Cosmora Archipelago, he nevertheless rallied his troops and mounted a counterattack destroying three of the attacking Base Ships.
Col. Tigh: Sir, if I may?
Commander Kronus: I guess I misunderstood you, Colonel.
Col. Tigh: Sir?
Commander Kronus: I thought you said you were due on the bridge shortly.
Col. Tigh: Er... yes, sir, I... I mean, I am due on the bridge. In fact, that's where I'm going right now, sir. If you'll excuse me... sir.
Commander Adama: I think he was about to propose a toast, Commander.
Commander Kronus: Adama, I always believed the first rule of command was to enforce all regulations, and the second rule...
Commander Adama: Is to make sure there's no exception to the first rule. You burned that into my brain when I was your aide.
Lt. Boomer: I thought Tigh was about to blast out of his boots.
Capt. Apollo: Breaking formation isn't exactly part of the military code.
Lt. Starbuck: Er, well, if you two hadn't stopped me, I could've caught her.
Cassiopeia: Starbuck, I got them! the last two seats to tonight's Spheroid concert!
Lt. Starbuck: Uh, great, er, Cassiopeia, this is Aurora. She's an old... friend.
Cassiopeia: Hi. Er, I'm sorry if I interrupted anything but I just got so excited abtout these tickets. You must know how hard these are to get.
Aurora: I'm afraid we don't have concerts on the Celestra, or elegant military receptions, for that matter.
Commander Kronus: This collection of moving derelicts isn't a fleet, it's a convoy. A convoy held together by mutual dependence. A fleet is held together by force and discipline. A fleet doesn't just move, it performs. Although I often wonder if Adama realises that.
Cassiopeia: A relationship based on possession isn't for me. I... I don't want to own Starbuck, or anyone else for that matter. If what he and I have together is worth anything at all, we're gonna... we're gonna survive all this.
Commander Kronus: We'll have to get over on the other side if we're gonna cut them off.
Duty Officer: It's impossible sir, the crossfire.
Commander Kronus: Nothing's impossible.
Capt. Apollo: Starbuck, will you stop worrying about that and try to look your best?
Lt. Starbuck: Look my best? Even at my worst, Aurora always thought I looked pretty good.
Capt. Apollo: She's obviously blind. I'm talking about Commander Kronus. Would you fasten up your jacket?
Lt. Starbuck: Ah.
Lt. Starbuck: Then assuming they're moving at top speed...
Commander Kronus: Factor four.
Lt. Starbuck: Assuming they're moving at factor four, their computers should tell us where they to find them.
Aurora: But it won't... or rather, it can't. This is a civilian shuttle. The computer has no tracking capabilites.
Aurora: [entering control room] Excuse me.
Duty Officer: Uh, may I help you?
Aurora: I need some navigational data.
Duty Officer: [smiling] For what ship?
Aurora: The Celestra. It's for Commander Kronus.
Duty Officer: Your name?
Duty Officer: Your name, please?
Aurora: Aurora. I'm Commander Kronus' pilot.
Aurora: It's been a long time.
Lt. Starbuck: Yeah, you see... I thought you were dead. Where have you been all this time?
Aurora: Learning to fly. I've just been made shuttle pilot.
Lt. Starbuck: [trying to speak to prisoner girlfriend] Aurora, you gotta listen to me. You're the only reason I came over here.
Aurora: I couldn't care less.
Lt. Starbuck: I think you do. You could have killed me and you didn't.
Aurora: Only because I was foolish enough to care about you once.
Lt. Starbuck: And I cared about you. The night the Cylons raided Caprica, I tried to find you, but your house had taken a direct hit, there... there was nothing left of it. I was positive you were dead, that's why I never looked for you. You gotta believe me.
Aurora: I do.
[regards him intensely]
Aurora: But it wouldn't have changed anything.
[walks past him, hands shackled behind her back]
Aurora: The Starbuck I used to know was an optimist.
Lt. Starbuck: Yeah, only when the odds were in my favor.
Aurora: [handcuffed prisoner] Leave me alone. You've already caused me enough trouble.
Lt. Starbuck: Aurora, I'm sorry for the mess you're in, but you can't blame me for that. You got yourself into it.
Aurora: I had no choice.
Lt. Starbuck: Everybody has a choice.
Aurora: Not the common people. Not on this fleet. You know what kind of life we have.
Lt. Starbuck: It's not like back on Caprica, but it's rough on everybody.
