Ok, I just watched the end of season 2, and the Chief gives a little speech in it. He says:
There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart that you can't take part! You can't even passively take part! And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus -- and you've got to make it stop! And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it -- that unless you're free the machine will be prevented from working at all!!
If you're a baby boomer, that might sound familiar. That speech wasn't just given on New Caprica, it was given in front of Sproul Hall at UC Berkeley.
In the same show, but not the same episode, Cola noted some references to Blade Runner where some humans refer to human-looking Cylons as "skin jobs." There must be references and quotations all over the place. Also, I wonder how Mario Savio feels/would feel about his words being used on Sci Fi TV?
