Battlestar Galactica, final season, "The Oath".
Soldier: Admiral! I checked the array. The equipment's been jury-rigged, sensors too.
Gaeta: Sergeant of the guards, get your marines in here, nobody gets in or out!
Adama: What the hell are you doing? WHAT IS THIS?
Guard prepares to fire.
Soldier pushes Adama out of line of fire. Guards fire. Soldier is hit
Gaeta: Hold your fire! Cease fire! Hold your fire! Nobody fires without my order! Admiral! Get your staff to stand down!
Tigh: You son of a b!tch!
Adama: Stand down, Colonel! Everyone! Stand down!
Adama (to Gaeta) You killed this boy.
Gaeta: Admiral Adama - I am removing you from command of this ship. I am taking you into custody on the charge of treason.
Adama: You swore an oath when you put that uniform on. You pledged to defend this ship and her crew.
Gaeta: You swore the same allegiance. What happened to your oath? For seven years I have done my frakking job, and for what? To take orders from a cylon? To let machines network our ship? You! You are not the leader that you were when we started. You're just a sad old man who has let his heart and his affection for a cylon cloud his judgement.
Adama: I WANT YOU ALL to understand this! If you do this - there will be no forgiveness; no amnesty.
Adama (to Gaeta): This boy ... died honouring his uniform. You ... You'll die with nothing.
Gaeta: Sergeant of the guards. Take the senior staff, put them in a holding cell, place Admiral Adama and Colonel Tigh under arrest! Do it!
Sergeant (to Adama): Sir...
Adama: Don't touch me!
Gaeta: Take him!
Exit Sergeant and Adama.

And, on the other end of the spectrum, in Occupation when Adama tells Lee to, "Get your fat *** out of here."
Hurray for father/son moments.

Starbuck: I just hope that Lee can...
Adama: Lee isn't the problem. You should take a good look at yourself. I had to go through the same transition. When you're in the cockpit, you're in control. It's hard to give it up.
Starbuck: It would just be a lot easier if I was flying with them.
Adama: All you can do now is wait and hope you didn't make any mistakes.
Starbuck: I never wanted this kind of responsibility.
Adama: The Cylons never asked us what we wanted. Welcome to the big leagues.
I love that scene.
