"Dust to Dust"
"I will not support murder. We can not kill him."
"Can we wound him? Just a little?"
-- Franklin and Ivanova in Babylon 5:"Dust to Dust"
"He's too strong. They're always too strong. Damn it, John. There's always
too many of them and not enough of us. What am I supposed to do?"
"Fight them without becoming them."
-- Ivanova and Sheridan in Babylon 5:"Dust to Dust"
"Far be it from me to try and talk you out of your paranoia, Captain.
You choose not to trust me. Well, that's sad, and unfortunate. But
unlike the rest of you, I have no intention of letting it get into the
way of my work. Doctor. Trust, Captain. You should try it some time."
-- Bester to Sheridan in Babylon 5:"Dust to Dust"
"I'm here to save your butts. Next time, show a little gratitude."
-- Bester in Babylon 5:"Dust to Dust"
"One is foolish, the other frightened."
"Telling which one is which, that's the hard part.
-- Delenn and Vir in Babylon 5:"Dust to Dust"
"A darkness carried in the heart can not be cured by moving
the body from one place to another."
-- Lennier to Vir in Babylon 5:"Dust to Dust"
"But as far as I know, there are no Narn telepaths. You may not even
carry the gene."
"There are no Narn telepaths now. But once, long ago, there were."
"Yeah. What happened to them?"
"They and their families were exterminated. The telepath gene has never
been strong enough in the survivors to breed a natural telepath.
-- Lindstrom and G'Kar in Babylon 5:"Dust to Dust"
"My blood is the same color as yours. And what I do, I do to protect Earth,
same as you. You don't like how I do it, that's your prerogative. But there
are things going on out there that you know nothing about. Threats to the
human race that no one never hears about, because we stopped them. There
are dangers all around us. And whether you like us or not, we may be all
that stands between you and the abyss."
-- Bester to Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"Dust to Dust"
"I thought the sleepers keep you from scanning anyone."
"So, how did you know he was lying?"
"Well, the odds were good that he was lying about something. Liars are
always afraid that somebody is going to see through them. So, I just
provided him with a vehicle for his paranoia. Your captain's opinions
notwithstanding, the badge and a uniform do have certain.. advantages."
"Like an intimidation?"
"Absolutely. Just like.. your badge and .. your uniform."
-- Garibaldi and Bester in Babylon 5:"Dust to Dust"
"Londo, the Minbari are very lovely people, interested in culture, and art--"
"Decadent, and soft. Probably out to impose their views on everyone else."
"But their cities are thousands of years old."
"The lack of new construction is a sure sign of a faltering economy.
This could make them very aggressive."
"They are deeply spiritual people, Londo."
"That you can leave in. It always scares people."
-- Vir and Londo in Babylon 5:"Dust to Dust"
"Londo, are you deliberately trying to drive me insane?"
"The universe is already mad, anything else would be redundant."
-- Vir and Londo in Babylon 5:"Dust to Dust"
"If I had my talent working, I could've warned you when he was coming."
"And if I had a baseball bat, we could hang you from the ceiling and play
piñata. I still think I should've gone straight to G'Kar."
"We have no evidence that he made the sale yet. Why annoy the Narn without
cause if we are wrong? Shut off the problem at the source and the rest
attends to itself. A piñata, huh? So, you think of me as something bright
and cheerful full of toys and candy for young children. Thank you!
That makes me feel.. much better about our relationship."
-- Bester and Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"Dust to Dust"
"Who would believe it? The great and powerful Londo Mollari got
his job because no one else was stupid enough to take it."
-- G'Kar to Londo in Babylon 5:"Dust to Dust"
"Who are you?"
"I am .. who I have always been."
-- G'Kar and 'his father' in Babylon 5:"Dust to Dust"
"We are a dying people, G'Kar. So are the Centauri. Obsessed with each
other's death until death is all we can see, and death is all we deserve."
-- Narn Image to G'Kar in Babylon 5:"Dust to Dust"
"What is there left for Narn if all of creation falls around us? There's
nothing. No hope, no dream, no future, no life. Unless we turn from the
cycle of death toward something greater. If we are a dying people, then
let us die with honor, by helping the others as no one else can."
"I don't understand."
"Because you have let them distract you. Blind you with hate. You cannot see
the battle for what it is. We are fighting to save one another, we must
realize we are not alone. We rise and fall together. And some of us must be
sacrificed if all are to be saved. Because, if we fail in this, then none of
us will be saved. And the Narn will be only a memory."
-- Narn Image and G'Kar in Babylon 5:"Dust to Dust"
"Why now? Why not earlier? All this time, where have you been?"
"I have always been here."
-- G'Kar and Narn Image in Babylon 5:"Dust to Dust"
"You couldn't have gotten here two minutes earlier."
"I tried to send to you, but I couldn't get through."
"Doesn't matter. We'll finish our business here later. You know, I said
all along this whole dust idea wasn't going to work. We spent five years
developing the stuff, tying it into latent genes, and it hasn't produced
one telepath of acceptable strength among the normal population. Oh, well.
At least we got it out of the hands of aliens and back among the humans
where it belongs."
-- Bester and a Psi Cop in Babylon 5:"Dust to Dust"
