"Education is the key. But it's the kind of education that we teach that is the key. We don't have it"

"Education is a vacine for violence. "

"I don't support violence, period. "

"In my early 20's I began to understand the draw of activism when I was invited to speak at a high school after I'd done a play. "

"Now I also discipline myself to do things I love to do when I don't want to do them. "

"On Miami Vice and Battlestar Galactica: Miami, although it took place among policemen, wasn`t about reality. It exploited reality to entertain. Battlestar is another thing. Despite it being set in space, it deals with real stuff."

"A saint is a person who gives of themself without asking for anything in return. That's how simple it is to be a saint. Try it! Try being a saint."

"I believe that Gandhi was correct. Non-violent civil disobedience is the only way to bring about change that allows people to enjoy the change and not get killed in the process."

"I’m very curious to see how the [Battlestar Galactica] writers are going to handle the discovery of Earth. What state will Earth be in? Will we be prehistoric? Will it be 1937? Will it be 2080? I’ve always thought it would be interesting to have us find Earth during the very last episode, and then after this long journey, after everything they’ve been through, the humans of Earth nuke us" (laughs).

(to "Battlestar Galactica" fans at Comic-Con International 2006) "I'm not the kind of guy who's gonna tell you, "Get a life." I think people who say stuff like that should get their a**h*les checked."

"The best gifts I've ever received . . . have been the smiling faces of the children I have visited on Christmases past at the Children's hospital . . . the smiles and joy given back to you makes on cry and rejoice in living. It's hard, but it's time so well spent it's incredible."

Q: Are you surprised that the show can be that dark and that brutal and yet be so popular?

Olmos: Yeah! Yeah! I’m totally blown away. We won the Peabody, man! Give me a *********g break. How in the world does that add up? Where does that line cross? How does that happen? I get chills. I’ve been doing this for 41 years, man, and Battlestar Galactica wins the Peabody? I’m the *********g guy that did Stand and Deliver! I’m the guy that did The Ballad of Gregorio Cortez. I have used the television medium to the best of my abilities and done stuff that will be lasting forever in the annals of the artform – and Battlestar Galactica gets the Peabody.

“Adama’s romance with Laura Roslin was probably the most rewarding part of the whole BSG experience…I consider those scenes some of the great moments in my career.”

"It's what you do, the things you do, that make you who you are. I'm very proud of my work. I'm proud of the reasons that I stand here in front of you"

"There is only one race. You know it and I know it, and yet you consider me to be of Latino race," he said. "It hurts. It makes me cry because there's only one race and it's the human race."

"This is the best usage of episodic television that I've ever seen in my life. I don't even think anything gets close."

"It doesn't stop here. It's going to resonate stronger in ten years or 20 years, just like 'Blade Runner.' That's what happens. You start to realize what you're watching and what has happened and how much more prolific it becomes as the years go on -- it's like great wine. It gets better as it ages."

"They are both moments of usage of the medium, one being film, and the other being television, but both being storytelling. That's remarkable. But I don't think that even 'Blade Runner' can encompass what 80-plus hours of this story unfolding in your face leads you to understand. It's magnificent.

"This is the gift of a career so far, in working on storytelling. I'm very grateful."

"There's only one race, the human race, so think about it!"

ChakotaysLover 03-21-2010 11:36 AM

and looking psychotic with a gun. I felt really bad for him when he went to Tigh's quarters and tried to get Tigh to shoot him.

crazy_diamond 03-21-2010 02:59 PM

OMG yes :cry:, what a scene that was :thud:

ChakotaysLover 03-21-2010 10:38 PM

It made me want to cry. If only Laura had seen him like that.... but then again she was fighting her own demons at the time.

He really needed a hug in that scene.

crazy_diamond 03-22-2010 06:44 AM

oh yes, but I think it was because of Laura he did that, she gave up and he just thought for a second, well if she can, so can I..

ChakotaysLover 03-22-2010 11:21 PM

Those two were so finely tuned tho he other. It made me sad to see them so defeated and thus the fleet was defeated for a short time.
