"The Gathering"

"I was there, at the dawn of the Third Age of Mankind. It began in the Earth year 2257 with the founding of the last of the Babylon stations, located deep in neutral space. It was a port of call for refugees, smugglers, businessmen, diplomats and travelers from a hundred worlds. It could be a dangerous place, but we accepted the risk because Babylon 5 was our last, best hope for peace. Under the leadership of its final commander, Babylon 5 was a dream given form, a dream of a galaxy without war, where species from different worlds could live side-by-side in mutual respect, a dream that was endangered as never before by the arrival of one man on a mission of destruction. Babylon 5 was the last of the Babylon stations. This is its story."

"If it makes you feel any better, I can send them a fruit basket."
	-- LtCmdr. Laurel Takashima to G'Kar in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"Sooner or later, everyone comes to Babylon 5."
	-- Commander Sinclair to Lyta Alexander in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"Babylons one, two and three were sabotaged and destroyed. Number four vanished without a trace 24 hours after becoming operational. To this day no one knows what happened to it."
	-- Sinclair to Lyta Alexander in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"Notice the waves, each moving in its own order, predictable, unchanging. But drop in a single stone and see how the pattern changes. Everything around it is altered."
	-- Ambassador Delenn to Sinclair in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"On my world, there are books, thousands of pages, about the power of one mind to change the Universe, but none said it as clearly as this."
	-- Delenn to Sinclair in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"Do you not have files on the Vorlons?"
"Absolutely. Very large files. There's nothing in them, of course. How much do you have?"
"More than you it would seem. Naturally it's all classified."
"Naturally."
	-- Delenn and Sinclair in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"Here is a copy of everything I have. It may be of use. If anyone asks, say it fell from the sky."
	-- Delenn to Sinclair about Vorlon files in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"Commander, you know everything about your stone garden. But clearly, you have not spent nearly enough time looking at it."
	-- Delenn to Sinclair in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"Damn. You see, it's your fault. You're bad luck. I've always said that about him. Now, come on, come on. Look, you're a security chief. Shouldn't you be out securing something?"
	-- Londo to Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"We have no telepaths among my people. A genetic oversight I suppose. One which you could help correct. I am empowered to compensate you quite handsomely for your genetic background."
	-- Ambassador G'Kar to Lyta Alexander in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"Would you prefer to be conscious or unconscious during the mating? I would prefer conscious, but I don't know what your .. pleasure threshold is."
	-- G'Kar to Lyta Alexander in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"We were talking the other day about how nobody has seen a Vorlon before. And he said that according to legend, one human did see a Vorlon, and turned to stone."
"Well, that's just a legend."
"Probably."
"Probably."
	-- Takashima and Sinclair in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"Even for an alien, this one is pretty alien."
	-- Dr. Kyle to Sinclair about Kosh in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"We have unlimited manpower and the will to use it! Can you imagine what we could achieve together?"
"I can, which is why it must never be allowed to happen."
	-- G'Kar and Delenn in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"I suppose there'll be a war now, hmm? All that running around and shooting at one another. You would've thought sooner or later it would go out of fashion."
	-- Ambassador Londo Mollari to Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"You make very good sharks, Mr. Garibaldi. We were pretty good sharks ourselves once, but somehow, along the way, we forgot how to bite. There was a time when this whole quadrant belonged to us. What are we now? Twelve worlds and a thousand monuments to past glories. Living off memories and stories, selling trinkets."
	-- Londo to Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"My god, man. We've become a tourist attraction. 'See the great Centauri Republic -- open 9 to 5, Earth time.'"
	-- Londo to Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"Nice shark, .. pretty shark."
	-- Londo to his drink in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"I haven't broken the rules in a long time, doctor, so I guess .. I'm about due."
	-- Takashima to Dr. Kyle in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"That's not fair."
"No, it's not, but that's what we're stuck with."
	-- Lyta Alexander and Dr. Kyle in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"I don't trust telepaths. Never have; never will."
	-- Garibaldi to Sinclair in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"Michael, I picked you because you are right for the job. You are not politicking, you are not subtle, and sometimes you are a pain in the ass. And I wouldn't have it any other way."
	-- Sinclair to Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"We had to stop them, .. no matter what it cost. They came at us out of nowhere. We never had a chance. The sky was full of stars and every star an exploding ship -- one of ours."
	-- Sinclair about the Line in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"No, we were beaten. We didn't stop them, they stopped themselves. I wish the hell I knew why."
	-- Sinclair in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"Tell them [Vorlons] to get stuffed."
	-- Takashima in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"There is a hole .. in your mind."
	-- The Assassin to Sinclair in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"Commander, this little breach of security isn't going to affect my Christmas bonus, is it?"
	-- Garibaldi to Sinclair in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"There we were, a fleet so large it nearly eclipsed the sun. Suddenly, we fell on them like a wave, foiling upon a shore--"
	-- Londo to Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"Delenn, just before he died, the Minbari assassin looked at me and said: 'There's a hole in your mind.'"
"An old Minbari insult. Nothing you need worry about."
	-- Sinclair and Delenn in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"I would never tell you anything that was not in your best interest."
	-- Delenn to Sinclair in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"'To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.'"
	-- Sinclair in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"A poem: a story in meter or rhyme."
"Ahh. 'There once was a man from Nantucket..'"
"You've been talking to Garibaldi again, haven't you?"
	-- Delenn and Sinclair in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
"This is Lieutenant Commander Laurel Takashima. Our docking bays stand ready to receive you. Babylon 5 is open for business."
	-- Takashima in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"
