"The Emperor has just finished reviewing your reports from Minbar. He asked me to convey his compliments on your hard work, even if some parts of it do read as if they were written by Ambassador Mollari."
"He advised me on a few things."
"I thought as much. Londo belongs to the old school. He thinks we must be protected from the truth. But these are perilous times. We must have accurate information about what other worlds are doing. You would do well to follow your own judgement in the future."
	-- Centauri Minister and Vir in Babylon 5:"Sic Transit Vir"
"Oh, I heard a new joke. Hehahaahhh. What is more dangerous than a locked room full of angry Narns?"
"Heh, I don't know. What is more dangerous than a locked room full of angry Narns?"
"One angry Narn with a key."
	-- Centauri Minister and Vir in Babylon 5:"Sic Transit Vir"
"Same thing night after night, one bad dream after another. You know, I get the one where your teeth are breaking off or falling out and you wake up going aaah!"
"Oh yeah, I know that one."
"Or you are lost in a maze somewhere, or you're someplace I have never been before. This morning I dreamt that I walked into C&C totally .. unprepared for my work."
"Oh. Interested in little dime-store psychoanalysis?"
"No, I'll just bury my soul in the breakfast and ask you to give me some silver-ware."
	-- Ivanova and Sheridan in Babylon 5:"Sic Transit Vir"
"I have already dealt with all that."
"Consciously, but from what you are saying, subconsciously you are still trying to work it all through. You don't know where you fit anymore, how to define yourself, you are feeling vulnerable, lost, and exposed. It's all perfectly obvious and completely understandable."
	-- Ivanova and Sheridan in Babylon 5:"Sic Transit Vir"
"It'll pass. Your subconscious just needs to work it all through. Hey, it could be worse, you could be having dreams where you are showing up to work naked. You would be in real trouble."
	-- Sheridan to Ivanova in Babylon 5:"Sic Transit Vir"
"Yes, you can help me. Two hours ago. Two hours ago I called you. I told you that there is .. a bug, an insect in my quarters."
"Well, we've been a little busy."
"Now, listen to me. I do not like insects. I do not like little brown things with eight legs. I do not like anything with eight legs. Well, except for the Vinzini, but only because they are terrible at cards. Something to do with compound eyes, I think. I want this thing dead!
	-- Londo and B5 Maintenance in Babylon 5:"Sic Transit Vir"
"I would like to see you tonight."
"Are you not seeing me now? I would think that you see me every time we meet, unless I have become translucent or .. insubstantial and nobody has stopped to inform me until now."
"Let me say I would like to see you in a different light, candlelight for instance. Over dinner."
"Tonight?"
	-- Sheridan and Delenn in Babylon 5:"Sic Transit Vir"
"Humans can be a very depressing people."
"Only if we get turned down for dinner."
"Well, we can't have that, now can we?"
	-- Delenn and Sheridan in Babylon 5:"Sic Transit Vir"
"And how are things at the royal court?"
"You know, collusion, politicking, scheming, innuendo, gossip. The same old thing."
"Good. Good. And your reports? I assume they went over well."
"Yes, sir. Very well."
"Did you tell them I helped with our reports?"
"No, there was no need to, they noticed it right off."
	-- Londo and Vir in Babylon 5:"Sic Transit Vir"
"When I marry, I want it to be for love."
"Ah, a radical?"
	-- Vir and Lyndisty in Babylon 5:"Sic Transit Vir"
"Wow. It's quite a view, isn't it?"
"I know, I can never get enough of it."
"Standing here in front of the stars like this, looking out, down, up, all at once, kind of makes you feel naked in front of the universe."
	-- Zack and Ivanova in Babylon 5:"Sic Transit Vir"
"Mr. Cotto, you're late."
"I'm sorry. I was otherwise engaged. Engaged and married, as it is. Not that I knew about it or anything.."
"You are not making sense."
"I imagine I'm not, but that's the kind of day I'm having."
	-- Ivanova and Vir in Babylon 5:"Sic Transit Vir"
"Is she all right?"
"Yes, Lyndisty, my wife. Well, soon to be. You know, it's .. it's done, but it's not really done .. but it's .. phew .. a long, long story. But, you know, at first, you know, I didn't think, but now .. oh, she's .. well. Oh, can I ask you a question as long as you are here?"
	-- Ivanova and Vir in Babylon 5:"Sic Transit Vir"
"There were other women, but I never got past one."
"You mean first base."
"No, no, I mean one. You see, we have six a .. we have six, you see, and each one is a different level of intimacy and pleasure. So, you know, first you have one, and that's naa-naa. Then there's two .. and by you get to five it's a heehaa-heehaa."
	-- Vir and Ivanova in Babylon 5:"Sic Transit Vir"
"All I can say is that enthusiasm, sincerity, genuine compassion, and humor can carry you through any .. lack of .. prior experience with .. high numerical value."
"Wow, I'm gonna remember that. Thank you, thank you."
	-- Ivanova and Vir in Babylon 5:"Sic Transit Vir"
"Six! Huh!"
	-- Ivanova in Babylon 5:"Sic Transit Vir"
"Back home nobody cares about dead Narns, only living ones."
	-- Vir in Babylon 5:"Sic Transit Vir"
"And to tell you the truth.. I hate to say this, but .. I think I really enjoy being a sneak."
"Then I hereby appoint you the official Babylon 5 sneak in residence."
"Oh, thank you."
"Now get the hell out of my chair."
"Yes, sir."
	-- Ivanova and Sheridan in Babylon 5:"Sic Transit Vir"
