Quotes:
From "Galactica 1980: The Super Scouts: Part 2 (#1.5)" (1980)
Lt. Dillon: [Leading Mr. Stockton in] Commander Adama, if I may intrude. This is Mr. Stockton, the man responsible for the chemical by-products we mentioned in our transmission.
Commander Adama: Ah, yes.
John Stockton: How do you do, Your Honor? Um, Majesty - Eminence.
[Chuckles]
John Stockton: Eminence. Um - I only work there. I'm not really responsible.
Commander Adama: We are all responsible.
John Stockton: We are?
Commander Adama: Yes. We have lips so that we may speak. We have eyes so that we may see. Does it not follow, ironically, that there must be some purpose for the brain?
