President Adar Quotes in Battlestar Galactica (1978)
President Adar Quotes:
Cmdr. Adama: Mr. President, a wall of unidentified craft is closing in on the fleet.
Baltar: Possibly a Cylon welcoming committee.
Cmdr. Adama: Sir, might I suggest we launch a "welcoming committee" of our own?
Baltar: Mr. President, there remain many hostile feelings amongst our warriors. The likelihood of an unfortunate incident with all those pilots in the sky at once.
President Adar: Did you hear that, Commander?
Cmdr. Adama: Sir, did Count Baltar suggest that our forces sit here totally defenseless?
President Adar: My friend, we are on a peace mission. The first peace man has known in a thousand years.
President Adar: Baltar, my friend, this armistice conference would not have been possible with your tireless work. You have secured for yourself a place in the history books.
Baltar: [smiling humbly] That the Cylons chose me as their liason to the Quorum of the Twelve was an act of... providence, not skill.
President Adar: I see the party is not a huge success with all my children.
Cmdr. Adama: What awaits us out there is what troubles me.
President Adar: Surely, you don't cling to your suspicions about the Cylons. They *asked* for this armistice. They *want* peace.
Cmdr. Adama: Forgive me, Mr. President, but they hate us with every fiber of their existence. We love freedom, we love independence. To feel, to question, to resist oppression. To them, it's an alien way of existing... they will never accept.
President Adar: But they *have*. Through Baltar, they have sued for peace.
Cmdr. Adama: [unconvinced] Yes... of course, you're right.
Cmdr. Adama: Mr. President, I request permission to leave the fleet. I have reason to suspect our home planets may face imminent attack.
[Cylon raiders blast away at the bridge of the Atlantia and portions of the bridge explode]
Cmdr. Adama: Maintain contact!
[the communication image of Adar distorts, then clears]
President Adar: [horror-stricken] How could I have been so completely wrong? I have led the entire human race to ruin!
[a Cylon raider blasts one of the Atlantia's anti-assault batteries and the explosion surges into the bridge, knocking out communications]
Cmdr. Adama: [alarmed] Mr. President!
