"Babylon Squared"

"God I hate mornings."
"We noticed. Personally I find it the best part of the day."
	-- Ivanova and Sinclair in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
"We all have our cross to bear."
"The time I learned to really appreciate mornings was during the three years I spent being taught by Jesuits. We used to get up at five o'clock every morning for sunrise mass, then one hour of meditation before class. We'd sit, quiet, in peace. Breathing in, breathing out. Breathing in, breathing out. Breathing in, breathing out."
	-- Ivanova and Sinclair in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
"I'll notify your next of kin."
	-- Sinclair to Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
"Some things one must do alone."
	-- Delenn in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
"Well, Commander, it's hard to explain. There's no damage to the body, no shock, no trauma. Everything points to death by natural causes."
"So, why is that hard to explain?"
"Because in this case the natural cause was old age."
	-- Garibaldi and Ivanova in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
"B4 as in Babylon 4?"
"Well, I can't figure out why. B4 vanished without a trace over four years ago. I don't get it."
	-- Ivanova and Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
"Earth Alliance Vessel ID Archive"
"Babylon 4: 0010835-081677"
	-- Babylon 4 Vessel ID in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
"This is nuts. The station just doesn't disappear and reappear four years later like some kind of a flying Dutchman."
	-- Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
"You're so serious all the time. Not every conversation has to be the end of the world as we know it."
	-- Garibaldi to Sinclair in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
"[sigh] Fasten, then zip. You?"
"Fasten, zip!"
	-- Sinclair and Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
"How much longer?"
"One hour, fifty-seven minutes. .. Wanna talk socks?"
"No!"
"It's just a question."
"I'm not having this conversation."
	-- Sinclair and Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
"Summoned, I come. In Valen's name I take the place that has been prepared for me. I'm Grey. I stand between the candle and the star. We are Grey. We stand between the darkness .. and the light."
	-- Delenn in Grey Council in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
"It has been ten cycles since Dukhat has left this world to take his place with Valen and the nine who were. Ten cycles since our people have had a leader. The time of mourning is complete. We must now choose another."
	-- A Grey Council Member to Delenn in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
"My calling is to serve, not to lead."
	-- Delenn to Grey Council in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
"Prophecy will attend to itself."
	-- Grey Council Spokesman to Delenn in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
"Commander, they've broken through level seven and eight! Can't stop them, they're everywhere."
"Garibaldi!"
"Look, I've rigged the fusion reactors but there's not much time. Get going, I'll hold them as long as I can. Move it! Come on, this isn't a conversation. Jeff, it's okay, I finally understand. This is the moment I was born for. Now go. Go!"
	-- Garibaldi and Sinclair in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
"I wish to reconvene the Council. I must speak to them."
"That has never been done! .. But, if it were to be done at all, this is as good and as bad a time as any."
	-- Delenn and A Grey Council Member in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
"Oh. Not the one, no."
"Not the one what?"
"Not the one. Won't talk. Can't talk. Not the one. They told me, they did. Zathras listens, he does, yes. Zathras listens and does what he's told."
	-- Zathras and Sinclair in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
"The One is hurt. Must find. Zathras must find help."
"What are you doing here?"
"Need this place. Need this. Used to fight. They told Zathras, biggest of all Babylon stations we need. Needing we take. There is no more to telling."
	-- Zathras and Sinclair in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
"Zathras tells, maybe we don't break Zathras' scrawny little neck."
	-- Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
"Great War. Terrible War. There is much killings. Everyone fighting. A great darkness. It is the end of everything. Zathras warned but, oh no, no one listened to poor Zathras, no. Great War, but great hope of peace. Need place. Place to gather, to fight, to organize."
"You need Babylon 4 as a base of operations in a war, is that it?"
"To help save galaxy, on the side of light. So they tell me. Must have. Or it is the end of all. The One leads us. The One tells us to go, we go. We live for the One. We would die for the One. We pull this place through time to save us all."
	-- Zathras and Sinclair in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
"Much apologizing. Mathematics not Zathras' skill."
	-- Zathras to Major Krantz in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
"They fight, they argue, they are ruled by passions and fears."
"Yes, and that is their strength. They do not seek conformity. They do not surrender. Out of their differences comes symmetry, the unique capacity to fight against impossible odds. Hurt them .. and they only come back stronger. The passions we deplore have taken them to their place in the stars and will propel them to a great destiny. Their only weakness is that they do not recognize their own greatness. They forget that they have come to this place through two million years of evolution, struggle and blood. That they are better than they think, and nobler than they know. They carry within them the capacity to walk among the stars, like giants. They are the future. And we have much to learn from them."
	-- Grey Council and Delenn in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
"What happens to you when it jumps?"
"Zathras die. But Zathras die for cause. Maybe stop great war. Maybe Zathras great hero. Maybe build statue to Zathras. Others come, remember Zathras."
	-- Krantz and Zathras in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
"Zathras not of this time. You take, Zathras die. You leave, Zathras die. Either way, it is bad for Zathras."
	-- Zathras to Major Louis Krantz in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
"Zathras does not want to die. But if it is the only way, then Zathras dies. It is life."
	-- Zathras to Sinclair in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
"I don't understand you Michael. We have got a good life here, we've got history. You have met this Sinclair twice and now you are off to Babylon 5, just like that. Doesn't what we have mean anything to you?"
	-- Lise Hampton to Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
"Go. You must. Listen to Zathras. You have a destiny. Go. Please. Go for Zathras."
	-- Zathras to Sinclair in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
"I tried. I tried to warn them. But it all happened, just the way I remembered."
"I know. It's time. We have to go. They are waiting for us."
	-- Sinclair and Delenn in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
"These are curious times, Delenn. I feel a great change in my bones. A new beginning, an end, I can not say. We are surrounded by signs and portents. And I feel a darkness pressing on our backs. If ever you have needed me, I am here. Now, Valen go with you and light your way."
	-- Delenn's friend to Delenn in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
"Great, and I missed it."
"Not necessarily, Lt.Commander. We don't know where Babylon 4 was going, or when it was going. Who knows, it may show up again sometime."
"Well, if it does, this time I'm going and Garibaldi is staying here."
	-- Ivanova and Sinclair in Babylon 5:"Babylon Squared"
