My mother and I watch Battlestar Galactica:

Tori: Fire!
Mom: They’re engulfed in flames.  (silence) I find her observations gratuitous.

My mother and I watch Battlestar Galactica:

Six, to Baltar, in the middle of a Cylon attack: I always wanted to be proud of you.
(They make out)
Mom: Really?  You’re going to have sex now?
Me: I don’t think so.
(They get more into it)
Me: Oh.
Mom: (knowing look)

My mother and I watch Battlestar Galactica:

(Onscreen, Apollo gives a verbal smackdown to a bunch of Captains who want to start stripping Galactica’s equipment.)
Random Captain: What would Gaius Baltar say?
Apollo, effing gobsmacked: Gaius BALTAR?!?
Mom: I suddenly like Apollo now.  That reading was pitch-perfect.

My mother and I watch Battlestar Galactica:

(Onscreen, Sharon tricks Helo into thinking she’s Athena and having sex with her.)
Mom: Huh. I thought he would be able to tell.
Me: Yeah.
(silence)
Mom: Because they make sex differently.

My mother and I watch Battlestar Galactica:

Boomer, to Chief: I’m sorry, I thought you were okay with Cylon projections.
Mom: Was that something that happened before or is it happening now?
Me: I don’t know.
Mom: You’re useless.  What kind of Cylon historian are you?

My mother and I watch Battlestar Galactica:

Six: We want to try Boomer for treason.
Me: Man, Boomer can’t catch a break.
Mom: I know. And I like her the most of out all of the Cylons.
Me: Even Dean Stockwell?
Mom: Oh, he is getting on my last nerve.

My mother and I watch Battlestar Galactica:

Tigh: I feel it! For her. For you. For Liam. Shouldn’t need to spout the words; I feel it less with words. Just (sputters unintelligibly for a while)!
Me & Mom: What?
(we rewind it and watch it again)
Me: Anything?
Mom: He is not my favorite.
