Imperious Leader:
Welcome, Baltar. I have grave news. A handful of Colonials prevail, but we will soon find them.



Baltar:
What of our bargain? My colony was to be spared!



Imperious Leader:
I now alter the bargain.



Baltar:
How can you change one side of a bargain?



Imperious Leader:
When there is no other side. You have missed the entire point of the war.



Baltar:
But I have no ambitions against you!



Imperious Leader:
Could you think me so foolish as to trust a man who would see his own race destroyed?



Baltar:
Not destroyed, subjugated, under me.



Imperious Leader:
There can be no survivors. So long as one human remains alive, the Alliance is threatened.



Baltar:
Surely you don't mean me?

Baltar:
No! You can't! You still need meAAAAAAARRRRGHHH!

Steve Martin:
Nature has a way sometimes of reminding Man of just how small he is. She occasionally throws up terrible offspring's of our pride and carelessness to remind us of how puny we really are in the face of a tornado, an earthquake, or a Godzilla. The reckless ambitions of Man are often dwarfed by their dangerous consequences. For now, Godzilla - that strangely innocent and tragic monster - has gone to earth. Whether he returns or not, or is never again seen by human eyes, the things he has taught us remain...

In France, and at the most important period of our history, Catherine de' Medici has suffered more from popular error than any other woman, unless it be Brunehaut or Frédégonde; while Marie de' Medici, whose every action was prejudicial to France, has escaped the disgrace that should cover her name.... Catherine de' Medici ... saved the throne of France, she maintained [the] Royal authority under circumstances to which more than one great prince would have succumbed.
