"You have the gun. All I've got is .. what I've got."
"No way. I drop you and your guards will kill me."
"Maybe. Maybe not, hell, anything happens to me, everyone gets an instant promotion. You've got the gun, go ahead, go for it. I'll wait for you."
	-- Sheridan and Troublemaker in Babylon 5:"A Day in the Strife"
"Energy-cap. I palmed it when I shoved the gun in his pocket."
"You are going to give me an ulcer."
"Okay, okay, next time I'll give him a live gun. You really do want that promotion, don't you?"
"Next time you gonna--?!"
	-- Sheridan and Ivanova in Babylon 5:"A Day in the Strife"
"Hey, did I ever tell you I looked through the Captain's personnel file?"
"You what?!"
"Shhh!"
"Michael, that information is strictly off limits."
"I did it when he first came aboard. I like to know who I'm dealing with. And who knew he turn out to be okay, huh? Right now, according to his file, Sheridan is a good tactical thinker. He can take an inferior defensive force and turn it into an offensive force capable of taking on a better-equipped enemy. Now, he did it with the Black Star, he did it during the Mars riots. Now, you ask me, he is the one chance we've got to make it through this thing alive."
"Maybe. .. Did you look through my files when I came onboard?"
"Commander, that information is strictly off limits."
	-- Garibaldi and Ivanova in Babylon 5:"A Day in the Strife"
"So is that what it's about, pride? It's not enough that we have beaten them, we have to break them?"
"Yes, I'm sorry, I thought you understood that. I don't want our people to go through this again in another hundred years. There's a way things are done, Vir, nothing personal."
	-- Vir and Londo in Babylon 5:"A Day in the Strife"
"Sort of like an inter-stellar gardener, plucking out all of the weeds so that the flowers can grow."
"Basically, yes."
"Well, let's just hope that high-IQ boys back home give us all the right answers to this test. Otherwise we're gonna get hit with a 500000-megaton weedwhacker."
	-- Ivanova and Sheridan in Babylon 5:"A Day in the Strife"
"I want to protect you."
"I don't want to be protected!"
"Well, I'm afraid it's not your decision. It's already done. You've been promoted. You'll earn more money, receive more attention, women may even come to find you attractive .. in time."
	-- Londo and Vir in Babylon 5:"A Day in the Strife"
"Londo, if I leave, you'll be alone."
"Pah, I've always been alone."
	-- Vir and Londo in Babylon 5:"A Day in the Strife"
"I don't want to get killed because of a typo, it would be embarrassing."
	-- Ivanova in Babylon 5:"A Day in the Strife"
"Always finding good in every situation, Captain?"
"Absolutely. If I didn't, I might end up like you."
"Hey, what's that supposed to mean? Did anybody else hear that?"
	-- Ivanova and Sheridan in Babylon 5:"A Day in the Strife"
"I swear, if we'll live through this, someone is going to find their automatic shower-preferences reprogrammed for ice-water."
	-- Ivanova in Babylon 5:"A Day in the Strife"
"15 seconds. Captain, send or no send?"
"No send."
"Oh boy."
	-- Ivanova and Sheridan in Babylon 5:"A Day in the Strife"
"Captain, are you all right?"
"Nuts."
"What's wrong? I mean, we've survived."
"Right, which means that I have to go to that stupid transport association meeting. Oh, well."
	-- Ivanova and Sheridan in Babylon 5:"A Day in the Strife"
"If I'll live through this job .. without completely losing my mind, it will be a miracle of biblical proportions."
"Well, there goes my faith in the Almighty."
	-- Ivanova and Lt. Corwin in Babylon 5:"A Day in the Strife"
"If I stay here, your families are in jeopardy. Is anything more important than their safety?"
"Yes, their freedom."
	-- G'Kar and a Narn in Babylon 5:"A Day in the Strife"
"I carry my sword in my hand. You carry yours in your heart and in your mind. As I see it, that gives you a two-to-one advantage in arms. Be fair, citizen G'kar."
	-- Ta'Lon to G'Kar in Babylon 5:"A Day in the Strife"
