Keep Jumping

Monday, January 17, 2011

The third season of Battlestar Galactica starts with many of the characters having lost their military discipline when they believed their journey had ended. In the case of the character Apollo, this is symboled by him putting on rather a lot of weight. When the cyclones return and they return to the chase, the following exchange occurs...

Apollo: Yes, sir. Now if you'll excuse me. I have a date with a jump rope.
Dad stares.
Apollo: Hey, I've dropped half a stone.
Adama: Keep jumping.

Adama has a lot of memorable lines in the series but somehow that "keep jumping" stuck in my mind. Now I can't jump rope, my joints wont' allow it, but I can keep plodding along.
