"Being asked to serve on the Council is a matter of soul, not of flesh. The change that you have gone through.. it shouldn't matter."
"But it does, Lennier. I've made a decision and now I must face the consequences."
	-- Lennier and Delenn in Babylon 5:"All Alone in the Night"
"Lennier, for the first time .. I feel very much .. alone."
"No. Never alone, Delenn. Never alone."
	-- Delenn and Lennier in Babylon 5:"All Alone in the Night"
"This isn't a clear and present danger, Commander. Just a quick look around to see what the problem is. I haven't felt space beneath me since I got here in January and I miss it. Besides, if I don't put some flight time in soon, I'll lose my flight pay."
"Very well, but you'll take a full escort."
"All right, all right. I'll be in and out in an hour. What could go wrong?"
	-- Sheridan and Ivanova in Babylon 5:"All Alone in the Night"
"Lennier, listen to me. The Council holds me in disfavour right now. I do not want that to spill over onto you."
"I'm not worried about that."
"Of course not. You are young. And youth is both foolish and vulnerable."
	-- Delenn and Lennier in Babylon 5:"All Alone in the Night"
"Your diagnosis, Doctor?"
"Well, the patient is confused, delusional. Unable to separate his natural sense of loyalty for his home team from the reality that they stink, and only got to the playoffs on a technicality."
	-- Garibaldi and Dr. Franklin in Babylon 5:"All Alone in the Night"
"Helen Keller?"
"Heat of the moment."
	-- Garibaldi and Dr. Franklin in Babylon 5:"All Alone in the Night"
"Until later, Satai Delenn."
	-- Lennier to Delenn in Babylon 5:"All Alone in the Night"
"Power supply at 10%. Damage to stabilizers, rear and anterior thrusters. Detecting leak in fusion reactor system."
"Leak? How bad?"
"Radiation levels 35% beyond safe limits. Project increase of 5% every half-hour."
"How long until the radiation reaches terminal levels?"
"Radiation leak already at terminal level."
"Communications system?"
"Not functioning."
	-- Computer and Pilot in Babylon 5:"All Alone in the Night"
"Summoned, 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."
"They will not come, Delenn."
"But I was summoned."
"To receive judgement, yes. Not to appear as one of the Nine."
"I'm entitled to a hearing. I'm allowed to defend myself."
"That was before you disobeyed us. You were told to wait before taking this action. Before becoming .. alien to us. You've been away from us for too long, Delenn. Your contact with the humans has changed more than your appearance. If you are no longer one of us, how can you be one of the Nine?"
"My heart has not changed."
"We no longer know your heart, Delenn. The Council has voted to remove you from our presence. From this day forth you are no longer a member of the Grey Council, no longer Satai. I'm sorry, Delenn."
	-- Delenn and Hedronn in Babylon 5:"All Alone in the Night"
"Wait! What about my appointment to Babylon 5? My position as Ambassador is separate from my role as Satai."
"We are still debating this. It is your right to make a statement before the Nine if that is your wish."
"It is. Thank you. May I ask .. who was chosen to replace me?"
"I will convene the Nine. When we are ready, you will be summoned."
	-- Delenn and Hedronn in Babylon 5:"All Alone in the Night"
"Why are you doing this? Why are you torturing me? You can at least tell me what you want."
	-- Sheridan in Babylon 5:"All Alone in the Night"
"Twenty cycles I stood beside you as one of the Nine. I called many of you friends. And now you call me outcast. You know me. You know I believe in the task that is before us, the Great War that is coming. I have not turned my back on you. In trying to help I have sacrificed all that I was, and all that I am. We can no longer allow ourselves to be separated by names and borders. Our two sides must unite .. or be destroyed. Do not make my sacrifice a vain one. Allow me to finish what I started. In the name of our friendship, for the future of our people, let me remain in Babylon 5."
	-- Delenn to the Grey Council in Babylon 5:"All Alone in the Night"
"I'm more than happy to have you remain with the humans."
"You are the one chosen to replace me. I do not know you."
"I believe you do."
"Neroon! I do not understand. He's warrior caste from the Starrider's clan. What is happening here? What are you doing?"
	-- Neroon and Delenn in Babylon 5:"All Alone in the Night"
"When Valen called the Nine together he chose 3 from the worker caste, 3 from the religious caste and 3 from the warrior caste. My replacement should've been from the religious caste. Four from the warrior caste gives them unprecedented power."
	-- Delenn to the Grey Council in Babylon 5:"All Alone in the Night"
"And why not? It was the warrior caste who died in the war against the Earthers, warrior caste who defended our world for centuries while the Council floated among the stars, isolated from its own people."
"This is wrong."
"Is it? You say prophecy tells us a great war is coming. Should not the warrior caste lead against it?"
"The warrior caste cannot be allowed to set policy."
"Have you done any better? When I was inducted into this circle, I was finally told the reason we were ordered to surrender. I didn't know whether to laugh or weep. If we had been told the truth then, we never would have surrendered."
"You do not understand."
"I understand that before me is a creature I do not recognize. One foot in two worlds. You are an affront to the purity of our race. And your belief that you are satisfying prophesy is a presumption of the highest order. And yet .. it is true that you are now the perfect liaison between us and the Earthers. You have no home with either of us. So, please, act out your fantasy, be our go-between. return to Babylon 5, and stay there."
	-- Neroon to Delenn in Babylon 5:"All Alone in the Night"
"The first obligation of a prisoner is to escape, right?"
	-- Sheridan to a Narn in Babylon 5:"All Alone in the Night"
"Satai Delenn?"
"Only 'Delenn' from now on. The Grey Council feels that I can best serve our people by staying on Babylon 5. They feel very positively about it."
"The Council is .. very wise."
"Yes. Of course. You do not have to go back with me, Lennier. You could go home. You could be free of all this, return to your studies, to your family."
"Where you walk, I will walk. I have sworn myself to your side."
	-- Lennier and Delenn in Babylon 5:"All Alone in the Night"
"Come what may, Delenn, I will not leave you while I am still alive."
	-- Lennier to Delenn in Babylon 5:"All Alone in the Night"
"I remember when you first came to me. You would not look up until I ordered you to do so. But it did no good. Even when you were looking up, you were looking down. Look at me, Lennier. Very soon now, I will be going into darkness and fire. I do not know if I'm fated to walk out again. If it is your choice to come with me .. then I could not wish for a better, a braver companion."
	-- Delenn to Lennier in Babylon 5:"All Alone in the Night"
"Shhh! Do you know who I am?"
"The man in-between is searching for you."
"You are the hand."
	-- Ivanova and Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"All Alone in the Night"
"Why are you here?"
"We were never away. For the first time your mind is quiet enough to hear me."
"Why am I here?"
"You have always been here."
	-- Sheridan and Kosh in Babylon 5:"All Alone in the Night"
"Give me a lever big enough and I will move the world."
	-- Sheridan in Babylon 5:"All Alone in the Night"
"It's not fair."
"No. It's not. Death never is."
	-- Sheridan and Franklin in Babylon 5:"All Alone in the Night"
"You have always been here."
	-- Kosh to Sheridan in Babylon 5:"All Alone in the Night"
"Santiago understood the importance of Babylon 5. He knew that if anything happened to him, president Clark will appoint some hard-nosed jarhead to run this place. Well, we both know you are not that. But, from your record you look like that. If Clark and his friends think you're one of them, they'll leave you alone, which is what we need."
	-- General Hague to Sheridan in Babylon 5:"All Alone in the Night"
"A soldier's record tells a lot about a person. Not just what he's done, but how he's done it and why. And you have an uncommon failing for someone in your position, Captain. You are a patriot. You believe as I do that when we put on this uniform we took a solemn vow to protect Earth against threats from outside and from within."
	-- General Hague to Sheridan in Babylon 5:"All Alone in the Night"
"But it's time we stopped reacting and started acting."
	-- General Hague to Sheridan in Babylon 5:"All Alone in the Night"
"Hey, I never did know when to butt out. We're with you, Captain. Wherever this goes, however it ends, we're with you."
	-- Ivanova to Sheridan in Babylon 5:"All Alone in the Night"
