  • Zac's reaction to being allowed to go on his first ever mission. Shame things turned out the way they did.
  • Starbuck's reaction to learning the secret of Geminese poker players.

  Starbuck: No wonder those little buggers are such good card players.

  • While exploring the dark surface of the planet Carillon.

 Lieutenant Starbuck: I wonder how this place looks like in the daytime?

Lieutenant Boomer: Hey, this is the daytime.

Lieutenant Starbuck: Oooh... lovely...

  • As Lucifer and a Centurion leave to execute Baltar's scheme during "Lost Planet of the Gods".

  Lucifer: Isn't he wonderfully devious? We can learn much from him.

    • Boy is he in for a disappointment!
  • The look on Starbuck's face when he's introduced to Adama by the people of the Serenity settlement as thier new Constable.
    • That's nothing compared to the look on Adama's face when he has to go courting Siress Belloby!
  • While the episode "The Young Lords" was kinda lame. I had a good laugh when Starbuck bantered with his Cylon captor.

 Centurion: These humanoids are not well constructed. They damage easily.

Starbuck: At least we don't rust.

Centurion: Silence.

  • I loved it when Starbuck and Apollo mockingly make conversation that mimics the conversation of the female Warriors in the "Lost Planet of the Gods" episode.

 Starbuck: Apollo, what do you plan on doing for living quarters after you're married?

Apollo: Oh, well, I am so excited. I just found this place in the Astradon freighter. With a little paint and some nice curtains, it's so cozy!

Starbuck: You always were good with color. (after the female warriors continue talking in the background)

Apollo: Mmm, you'll never believe what I found. I just found some Valcron in the Tip Barge.

Starbuck: Really? The soft, translucent kind?

Apollo: (ridiculously effeminate) Absolutely stunning!

Serina: (finally notices them) Hey Apollo, Starbuck, you guys aren't feeling left out are you?

Apollo: Of course not! (rolls his eyes)

  • The way Starbuck and C.O.R.A. would keep snarking back and forth in "The Long Patrol".
    • Later, when Starbuck first woke up in the Protius cell.

  Starbuck: Twice in one day it just isn't fair.

  • When Starbuck walks off feeling glum about Cassy after she rushes off to meet Commander Cain, Boxey tries to look on the bright side.

  Boxey: Poor Starbuck. Well at least he's still got Athena, and Sheba, and...

    • The list continues until Apollo finally puts a stop to it.
  • Lucifer, criticizing Specter's sucking up to Baltar.

  Lucifer: Oh felgercarb.

  • Starbuck and Apollo's use of Red & Blue and Yellow & Green Squadrons. Apollo later draws the line at the idea of adding Purple and Orange.

  Athena: Sir, we're picking up attack signals between Purple and Orange Squadrons... We don't have Purple and Orange Squadrons.

  • A typical conversation between the Imperious Leader and one of his Centurions.

 Centurion: Our Raiders are all destroyed.

Imperious Leader: All destroyed? How? We took them by surprise.

Centurion: (as sarcasticly as possible for a Cylon) Apparently it was not as big a surprise as we had hoped for.

  • Just about all of "The Man With Nine Lives" is a Crowning Moment of Funny.
  • From the first episode of the "Terra" two-parter: When trying to smuggle empty, but clear containers covered in space rugs out of a docked ship as part of a plan to help the "Earthlings" escape the Council of Twelve's meddling, the security jerk-of-the-week looks inside after Jolly fails to convince him that they were trying to evacuate the children inside the ship to a hospital [1]. Boomer's lightning fast reaction as soon as everyone sees there's nobody inside? "Jolly, you forgot the kids!"
  • From "Living Legend", when the Cylon says to Baltar, "I really think you should take a look at the other battlestar."
    • I liked the blink-and-you'll-miss moment between the two IL-series Cylons as their base on Gamorray explodes.

  IL-Cylon: Uh oh.

  • After a tense scene when Boomer jumps through the door into a storage room in "Fire in Space", he can't help but add a little quib to Boxey.

  Boomer: Boxey, it looks like I... mashed your mushies.

  • Starbuck and "John's" first meeting in "Experiment in Terra" was brief but totally hilarious.

 John: You're just going to walk in there?

Starbuck: Yeah, pretty much.

John: (sighs then looks up) I know but, I'm doing the best with what I've got.

  • Just when the Galactica crew think Starbuck and Apollo haven't survived their mission using their stolen Cylon ship. A Cylon Raider approaches Galactica, and is about to be blown out of the sky.

 Boomer: No! Don't fire! It's them!

Adama: How do you know?

Boomer: They're waggling!

Tigh: Waggling?!

Galactica 1980

  • Starbuck and his Cylon pal Cy get a few, in what may be the only decent Galactica 1980 episode.
    • When Cy is explaining why his Raider crashed, Starbuck jokingly asks if someone in the three-Cylon crew pulled out the manual. Cy (completely missing the mockery) confirms that they did, but it did not help. He goes on to show why flying a starfighter by committee doesn't work:

  Cy: We were taking a vote when the ground came up and hit us.

    • Starbuck tells Cy that the (pregnant) human woman they've discovered is going to give birth to yet another human. His response?

  Cy: I am rapidly being surrounded.

    • The humor is a bit darker, bordering on Fridge Horror, but... one almost has to laugh at the absurdity of it all when Starbuck's innocent question reveals that the Cylons haven't given any thought to what they're going to do once the universe is finally "organized."
