"I don't care if you're the Easter bunny. You're not bringing this [knife] on the station."
	-- Garibaldi to a pilgrim in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"I'm thinking of thinking of calling her right after my afternoon nap. I'm thinking of thinking of sending her flowers right after Bonnie gets back. So many fishies left in the sea. So many fishies, but no one for meee.. I'm thinking of thinking of hooking a love soon after supper is done."
	-- G'Kar's song in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"Are you Ambassador G'Kar?"
"This is Ambassador G'Kar's quarters. This is Ambassador G'Kar's table. This is Ambassador G'Kar's dinner. What part of this progression escapes you?"
	-- Tu'Pari and G'Kar in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"It's a celebration of life. It comes from a time in our world history when two dominant species were fighting for supremecy. Our people, and a species we called Xon. At year's end we'd count how many of our people survived and we celebrated our good fortune."
	-- Vir in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"Do you know what the last Xon said just before he died? [Clutches heart] AAAAAAAAAAAARGHHH!!!"
	-- Londo in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"Can I kill him now?"
"Let me get back to you."
"Are you sure you don't want to see her?"
"Absolutely."
	-- Garibaldi and Sinclair in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"Oh, come on, Commander! Loosen up! You are supposed to enjoy yourself!"
"I am! Words just can't express how much I'm enjoying this."
	-- Londo and Sinclair in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"Ah, our household gods. In a world where every day is a struggle for survival, you need all the gods you can get."
	-- Londo to Ivanova in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"Gods by the bushel! Gods by the pound! Gods for all occasions!"
	-- Londo in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"Did I ever tell you [Delenn] that you are very cute for a Minbari? Even you [Garibaldi] are cute, in an annoying sort of way. Everybody's cute! Everybody's cute! Even me. But in purple.. I'm stunning!" [collapses]
	-- Londo in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"Ah! He has become one with his inner self!"
"He's passed out."
"That too."
	-- Vir and Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"I don't mean to alarm you, but your pants are talking to you."
"I know. I was just, uh--"
"Yes, you're a very busy man. Well, I'll let you and your pants get back to your business and I'll get back to mine. Take care, Jeff."
	-- Catherine Sakai & Sinclair in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"What would you say if I told you that councillor Du'Rog hired someone to kill me? Someone close to me."
"Ambassador, with all due respect, if it were me, you wouldn't be here for us to have this conversation."
	-- G'Kar and Na'Toth in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"Ambassador, it is not my place to speculate on how anything gets into your bed."
	-- Na'Toth to G'Kar in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"I fight my own battles! I survived our war of independance, five years on the council and two prior assasination attempts. I can survive this."
	-- G'Kar to Na'Toth in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"Earthers have a phrase: 'Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.' I believe they stole it from us."
	-- G'Kar to Na'Toth in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"I can not have an aide who will not look up. You will be forever walking into things."
	-- Delenn to Lennier in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"You will not use my title Satai. You will address me only as Delenn. Do you understand?"
"No, but understanding is not required, only obedience."
	-- Delenn and Lennier in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"Is this a breach of protocol?"
"I'm off duty."
"I thought you are never off duty."
"Maybe you didn't know me as well as you think."
	-- Sakai and Sinclair in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"The other half of the dance goes something like this: We meet, renew acquaintances, talk about old times at the academy, you ask about my aunt, I ask about your brother, we lie about not missing each other and we end up in bed together. And then you leave."
"Or you leave. Last time it was you."
"No it wasn't."
"Yes it was."
"No. .. Was it? .. You're right, last time it was me. Oh god, who can keep it all straight anymore."
	-- Sakai and Sinclair in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"I usually think about you in summer."
"I think about you in the fall."
"We never could agree on anything."
	-- Sakai and Sinclair in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"Will you follow me into fire, into storm, into darkness, into death? And the nine said: 'yes.' Then do this in testimony to the one who will follow, will bring death couched into promise of new life, and renewal disguised as defeat. .. From birth, through death and renewal, you must put aside old things, old fears, old lives. This is your death, the death of flesh, the death of pain, the death of yesterday. Taste of it and be not afraid, for I am with you to the end of time. .. Taste of it. .. And so it begins."
	-- Delenn in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"Where is he?! I was told a bodyguard would be at the ceremony. I was all alone! Taste your own death indeed!"
	-- G'Kar to Na'Toth in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"Just trying to get your story down, Ambassador."
"It's not my story, it's the truth!"
	-- Garibaldi and G'Kar in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"And just let me say, Ambassador, from the bottom of my heart: Hot pink is definitely your color."
	-- Garibaldi to G'Kar in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"Don't touch me unless you mean it!"
	-- Catherine Sakai to Sinclair in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"My orders are quite specific. You are to know pain. You are to know fear. And then you are to die at the required hour. I confess I'll be happy when this assignment is finished. Delaying the target's suspicions can be so time-consuming."
	-- Tu'Pari to G'Kar in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"The pain must be overwhelming. Why hold it in? Cry out, Ambassador. With luck, someone will hear you."
"I would die before giving you that satisfaction."
	-- Tu'Pari and G'Kar in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"That hurt."
"Ambassador, it was the only way to disable the pain-givers. I had to hit them as hard as possible, as often as possible and still make it appear as though I were beating you into another incarnation."
"And you didn't enjoy it in the least."
"I didn't say that."
	-- G'Kar and Na'Toth in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"With luck, they may never find you, but if they do, you will know pain.."
"..and you will know fear.."
"..and then you will die. Have a pleasant flight."
	-- G'Kar & Na'Toth to Tu'Pari in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"Oh, it's a rebirth ceremony, all right. It also doubles as a marriage ceremony. Depending on how seriously anyone took it, somebody got married the other day."
"Maybe that's why G'Kar was smiling. Funny. I didn't think Londo was his type."
	-- Sakai and Sinclair in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
"See you next Wednesday."
	-- Cmdr. Sinclair to Sakai in Babylon 5:"The Parliament of Dreams"
