Roslin: You have committed me to holding elections within the year.
Apollo: Madam President, with respect. You are serving out the remainder of President Adar’s term. When that term is up, in seven months, the law says, there is an election. I only committed you to obeying the law.

Roslin: He’s your son.
Adama: He’s your advisor.
