"Voices of Authority"

"Wars are won or lost before they are fought. The preparation, attitude, strategy, and the selection of proper allies. In the growing war against the Shadows, maybe there are some allies we have not approached yet. Many times over the last million years the Shadows were fought to a stand-still by the First Ones, races immeasurable older than our own. After the last war, a thousand years ago, we believed the first ones went away forever, passing beyond the galactic rim, where no human or minbari has ever ventured. But the vorlons remained, it is possible that some of the others may still be around."
	-- Delenn in Babylon 5:"Voices of Authority"
"According to legend, some went to sleep in secret places, deep beneath their ancient cities, where no one can bother them. The rest walk among the stars, on errands we never hope to understand, barely aware of our existance."
	-- Delenn in Babylon 5:"Voices of Authority"
"Delenn tells me that you are going to try contacting the First Ones. It is a magnificent idea. A daring, and splendid idea. In doing so you will see things no human has seen before. It will be fun. Assuming you are not vaporised, dissected, or otherwise killed in an assortment of supremely horrible and painful ways. Exciting, isn't it?"
	-- Draal to Sheridan in Babylon 5:"Voices of Authority"
"I asked for Captain Sheridan."
"He's busy."
"I don't like surprises."
"Really? I love them myself. I mean, to me everything is a surprise. You're a surprise, this place is a surprise. You see this? Paper-cut, hurts like hell. Anybody else would be upset, but to me it's just one more wonderful surprise. I mean, I even surprise myself sometimes. Now, I guess there's nothing wrong me surprising you? Right?"
"Hahhahaha. I like you. You're trouble."
"Well, thank you. It's the nicest thing anybody has said about me in days."
	-- Draal and Ivanova in Babylon 5:"Voices of Authority"
"Earth doesn't have homeless. We don't have the problem. Well, yes, there are some displaced people, here and there, but they've chosen to be in their position. They're either lazy or they're criminal or they're mentally unstable."
"They can't get a job."
"Earth-gov has promised a job to everyone that wants one. So, if someone doesn't have a job, they must not want one."
	-- Julie Musante and Sheridan in Babylon 5:"Voices of Authority"
"Poverty?"
"It's the same."
"Crime?"
"Yes, there is some, but it's all caused by the mentally unstable. And we've just instituted correctional centers to filter them out at an early age."
"Prejudice?"
"No, we are just one happy planet."
	-- Julie Musante and Sheridan in Babylon 5:"Voices of Authority"
"I'm here to protect you."
	-- Julie Musante to Sheridan in Babylon 5:"Voices of Authority"
"Well, here we are. If you just plug yourself in to the matrix, we'll take it from there."
"Ahm, it's .. ahm .. occupied."
"Oh, yes, of course, my mistake. I spend so much time out of my body, I sometimes forget where it is. If you'll excuse me."
	-- Draal and Ivanova in Babylon 5:"Voices of Authority"
"All life forms are connected. Look for the path. Look for the path."
	-- Draal to Ivanova in Babylon 5:"Voices of Authority"
"I can't leave without an explanation. She'll be all over me."
"Looks to me she's already all over you."
	-- Sheridan and Ivanova in Babylon 5:"Voices of Authority"
"Good luck, Captain. I think you are about to go where everyone has gone before."
	-- Ivanova to Sheridan in Babylon 5:"Voices of Authority"
"With our basic freedom in stake, no response can be too extreme. There maybe some minor and temporary abridgments in the traditionally protected areas, such as speech and association, but only until this crisis is over."
	-- Julie Musante in Babylon 5:"Voices of Authority"
"I think you just hit a nerve. Vorlons must owe them money or something."
"This also tells they understand our language. They are just not willing to speak to us using that."
"Who knew they were French?"
	-- Marcus and Ivanova in Babylon 5:"Voices of Authority"
"The Minbari taught me: 'Claim victory in your heart and the Universe will follow.'"
"Fine, great. Claim victory in your heart and up your--"
	-- Marcus and Ivanova in Babylon 5:"Voices of Authority"
"Zog? What do you mean zog? Zog what? Zog yes, zog no?"
"It's leaving. My guess is zog means no."
"Like hell. I am not letting them leave here without saying yes."
"Really? And how do you propose stopping them? Perhaps a big red and white sign with the word 'Stop' on it? I'll put a bucket on my head and pretend to be the ancient Vorlon god Booji."
"That's it!"
"Fine, I'll get a bucket."
	-- Ivanova and Marcus in Babylon 5:"Voices of Authority"
"This is the White Star to departing ship. I just want to say I appreciate your response, and I fully understand. The Vorlons said that you wouldn't be up for a fight like this. In fact they said in the last war, they carried you, did most of the work, while you took most of the credit for it. They said that if you got involved in this one, you'd just get hurt. Come to think of it, we've got the Vorlons. We don't need much more help, do we? I mean, the Vorlons are really pretty close to perfect."
	-- Ivanova in Babylon 5:"Voices of Authority"
"When it is time, come to this place, call our name, we will be here"
	-- Walkers of Sigma 957 to Ivanova in Babylon 5:"Voices of Authority"
"I told you I could help. The book of G'Quan. Read it. We'll talk afterwards."
"I don't read Narn."
"Learn."
	-- G'Kar and Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"Voices of Authority"
