"What do you mean, 100 credits?"
"I mean, more than 99, less than 101. What, do you have a hearing problem, or a math problem? Look, I can't get into conceptual arguments with you, I've got people waiting."
"That's three times the delivery charge for package this size."
"That was before we had a revolution around here. Now, in my little corner of Earth Force the mail still gets delivered. If I've got to use trapdoors, alien transports and back channels to get the mail in and out of here, that's what I do, because that's my job. Neither rain, nor snow, nor meteors, nor alien invasion nor.."
"Look, this is extortion."
"It's business. You see, when my costs go up, I have to pass it down along to the consumer. That's you, in case that's another one of those concepts you've got a problem with."
	-- Garibaldi and the mailman in Babylon 5:"A Late Delivery from Avalon"
"You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe."
	-- Marcus to Franklin in Babylon 5:"A Late Delivery from Avalon"
"Two figures on either side, one Human, the other Minbari. They blend together in the middle to signify the two halves of our souls uniting against the common enemy."
	-- Marcus to Franklin in Babylon 5:"A Late Delivery from Avalon"
"By G'Quan, I can't recall the last time I was in a fight like that. No moral ambiguity, no .. hopeless battle against ancient and overwhelming forces. They were the bad guys, as you say, we were the good guys. And they made a very satisfying thump when they hit the floor."
"It's wrong for the strong to prey on the weak. That idea was the very heart of the Round Table. To correct injustice, to promote a society of laws, not arms."
"Well said!"
"That is the purpose which God and the Crown have set before me. I can not achieve that locked away in some room."
"No, of course not! What room?"
"I sense in you a warrior born."
	-- G'Kar and Arthur in Babylon 5:"A Late Delivery from Avalon"
"But this is the post office. This could get us in real trouble."
	-- A Sec.Guard to Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"A Late Delivery from Avalon"
"I will vouch for his character! I saw the entire thing .. because I was there. I was in it. I was .. And they made a very agreeable thump. Or did I mention that?"
	-- G'Kar to Marcus in Babylon 5:"A Late Delivery from Avalon"
"I'll miss him."
"Even if he wasn't Arthur?"
"Now, now. Next thing you'll be saying he's [Kosh] not Merlin. Merlin was a great teacher, you know."
"I'm not hearing this."
"They say he aged backwards. That was how he was able to foretell the future by remembering it. Which means he came from the future. Maybe he had Arthur form the round table by remembering us."
