this was supposed to be a "waw, nice idea" kind of a post and turned out to be this monster

Hey! I know how that is! ;)

he wants Lee to take sides and then he isn't happy when that happens.

As much as I hated the way Adama treated his son, he was an equal opportunity jackass who treated EVERYONE he supposedly loved badly. Yes, he's all, "You need to choose a side. Oh, wait. You didn't choose mine? Well, then you're dead to me!" Not that I'm bitter at all about this!

Lee's I'm not a Captain, you're not a Commander, etc is one of my favorite lines of the series. I actually got a chill the first time I heard Jamie deliver the line. It just told me so much about the character, who he was and who he would yet be.

i;ll say that another favorite of mine form this episode is the "he;s your son"/"he's your adviser" exchange. they're like divorced parents disapproving the same thing in their kid.

Heh. They really are. Though I'd argue Laura actually seems proud of Lee whereas Adama is, well, being Adama! It also reminds me a bit of my friend when her daughter is doing something she shouldn't. She'll turn to her husband and say, "Do you see what your daughter is doing." :)

sorry for the late reply. apparently internet is on short supply in some cities.

totally in agreement with you here. i wasn't trying to imply that Adama did that only with Lee but i was focused on that because this episode sort of asked for it.

hehe. they reminded me of my parents when i have that sort of an argument with them. like last year when i started to explain about prices for a new house and stuff. and they had the same faces - the ones screaming - you let her study this stuff in the first place. but i'm getting out of topic a little.

yes, Laura seems proud. in a strange way not only here but in Crossroads also. she doesn't particularly like what he's saying/doing but in a sort of strange way she's still proud that he's defending his ideas.
