Laura Roslin: “Bill, you gotta face this. My life is coming to an end soon enough and I’m not going to apologize to you for not trusting her. And I am not.. I am not gonna trust her with the fate of this fleet. You are so buckled up inside. You can’t take any more loss. Your son’s leaving, this, me, I know it.”
Bill Adama: “No one’s going anywhere.”
Laura Roslin: “Okay. Here’s the truth. This is what’s going on. You wanna believe Kara. You would rather be wrong about her and face your own demise than risk losing her again.”
Bill Adama: “You can stay in the room…get out of my head.”
Laura Roslin: “You’re so afraid to live alone.”
Bill Adama: “And you’re afraid to die that way. You’re afraid you may not be the dying leader you thought you were. Or that your death may be as meaningless as everyone else’s.”
"We are now free, to go where we want to go and be who we want to be."
Battlestar Galactica, Season 4.5 - Sometimes A Great Notion
Favorite character - Felix Gaeta
In our civil war, we’ve seen death. We’ve watched our people die. Gone forever. As terrible as it was beyond the reach of the Resurrection ships, something began to change. We could feel a sense of time, as if each moment held its own significance. We began to realize that for our existence to hold any value, it must end. To live meaningful lives, we must die and not return. The one human flaw that you spend your lifetimes distressing over… Mortality is the one thing… Well, it’s the one thing that makes you whole.

Everyone’s entitled to a little confusion in their lives. I practically thrive on it.
