[Lee asks Adama about Roslin]
Adama: After what you did to Tigh, you're the last person I'd confide in.
Lee: Me? I didn't do anything to Tigh. He was drunk. It's really not my fault.
Adama: You told Lampkin about Ellen.
Lee: I didn't even know about Ellen.
Adama: Yeah, right.
Lee: You're calling me a liar?
Adama: I'm calling you a liar and a coward. One who doesn't have the guts to go after the man himself. Instead you hand the shiv to a stranger. Let him stab Tigh in the back. And for what? Traitor, piece of garbage, Gaius Baltar. Doesn't even deserve a trial.
[Baltar and Lampkin are discussing options after Roslin's testimony with Lee idly listening to them]
Baltar: We need to find something, anything that can discredit her testimony. She's a fanatic, right. I don't know if that's gonna..
Lampkin: [glances at Lee] You're awfully quiet.
Lee: Just listening.
Lampkin: You see, your problem is that I'm a really good liar and you're not. So let's have it.
Lee: Have what?
Baltar: My gods he's right, you do know something. You know something and you're not saying.
Lee: It's probably not even true.
Lampkin: I like it already.
[Lampkin is defending Baltar]
Lampkin: It's obvious my client is guilty. He's a traitor. And a killer. He's no better than a Cylon and what do we do with them?
Audience: Throw them out the airlock!
Lampkin: That's right! Throw them out the airlock. This man sold us to our enemy. This man is our enemy and if there's one thing that is good in a war, that is right and just and proper: it's slaughtering our enemy! Getting some righteous payback!
[Apollo details the security policy]
Apollo: You take a good look at this room. Every time you leave, memorize it. If anything changes, don't touch it. A book moves, shoes in a wrong place, something smells different, you get the frak out. Someone knocks, don't answer the door, don't open the door. Look, you have to do what I say.
Lampkin : If they wanna kill me, they'll find a way. Now, who do I have to bribe to see the Cylon woman?
[Adama and Apollo argue after the assassination attempt]
Adama: What the hell were you doing out there? I gave you an order. To do a job.
Apollo: Excuse me, I was doing my job.
Adama: Yeah, being led around by the nose! That bastard yanked your chain and you jumped.
Apollo: He wanted files from the Colonial One.
Adama: It was the middle of the night.
Apollo: You assigned me to security.
Adama: Yeah. And there was a bomb on that ship and you missed it.
[Baltar and Lampkin are discussing the upcoming trial]
Baltar: Caprica Six. I'm worried about her. She's the key. They can use her to completely destroy me. We need to get to her. We need to know what she's thinking. We need to.. talk to her. Tell her.. Tell her that I love her very much. I am thinking about her a lot.
Lampkin: I can sense that, yes.
Virtual Leoben: See, there's nothing so terrible about death, when you finally face it...it's beautiful. You're free now... to become who you really are.
Kara: [smiling] You're not Leoben.
Virtual Leoben : Never said I was. I'm here to prepare you to pass through the next door. To discover what hovers in the space between life and death.
[Helo and Hot Dog are at a briefing in the ready room. Sitting next to each other, Helo notices Hot Dog scratching near his groin area]
Helo: What's the matter with you?
Hot Dog: Sorry, I've got the weirdest rash.
Helo: Really? [Helo looks askance at Hot Dog] I hope she was worth it buddy!
[Helo gets up and moves one seat over to the aisle seat. Athena, overhearing the exchange, moves with her husband simultaneously over to her aisle seat directly behind Helo while also giving Hot Dog a humorously wary look and a smile.]
