"Name?"
"Harry, Harry Sanders."
"Are you a telepath?"
"Sure, what does the job pay?"
"Well, it's not a job, it's more like an adventure. Chance to help fight the bad guys."
"Good. Look, are we talking about hourly or weekly salary, because I've got expenses to cover."
"Well, one thing at a time. If you are a telepath, are you Psi Corps?"
"No, they missed me."
"No, Psi Corps doesn't miss anybody."
"Well, some things just fall through the cracks."
"Psi Corps doesn't have any cracks."
"I escaped, okay? Now, where do I sign?"
"What am I thinking?"
"I don't work for free."
"What am I thinking?"
"Right. .. Got it. And I think you are real cute too. Look, I really need this job."
"But you are not a telepath."
"I can learn. I'm a quick study."
"Out."
"I'll be an intern. I work cheap."
"Out!"
"Great, see, it's not what you can do, it's who you know. Typical!"
	-- Zack and a 'telepath' in Babylon 5:"Grey 17 is Missing"
"The Rangers were here because he was here. Where you are, the Rangers will be. We are coming into a critical time, Delenn, they will need you. Please, say 'yes'."
	-- Rathenn to Delenn in Babylon 5:"Grey 17 is Missing"
"Did they fix it?"
"Yeah."
"You are right, it is unusual."
	-- Garibaldi and Zack in Babylon 5:"Grey 17 is Missing"
"Thin air? Why is it always thin air? Never fat air, chubby air, mostly-fit-could-stand-lose-a-few-pounds air?"
	-- Garibaldi to a Supervisor in Babylon 5:"Grey 17 is Missing"
"You chose not to act. Someone had to."
"Perhaps. That is why we let you have them in the beginning. Even allowed Sinclair to train them. Even though it meant diluting their purity by allowing humans to join alongside our own people. We were quite tolerant of your activities. But now that their training is complete they require new leadership. By right of tradition, the warrior caste should be given command of the Rangers. That was the law, as set down by Valen. Three castes: worker, religious, warrior. They build, you pray, we fight."
	-- Delenn and Neroon in Babylon 5:"Grey 17 is Missing"
"Out of respect I give you this opportunity to walk away from the path you have taken. Refuse the position of Ranger One, and turn control of the Rangers to the warrior caste, where it belongs."
"Or?"
"I'm sworn to stop you, Delenn. By any and all means necessary."
	-- Neroon and Delenn in Babylon 5:"Grey 17 is Missing"
"We knew the Warrior caste was unhappy with our activities."
"Unhappy? Delenn, he's planning to kill you."
"That is .. one interpretation."
"He said he would use any and all means necessary. I respectfully suggest that he intends to go far beyond harsh language."
	-- Delenn and Lennier in Babylon 5:"Grey 17 is Missing"
"You shouldn't be here. You're in trouble."
	-- A Dummy to Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"Grey 17 is Missing"
"I'm trying to avoid breaking a promise by .. breaking a promise. I promised Delenn that I would not speak of this to the Captain or let him know. She did not mention you by name, but that was implicit. If I tell the others in the chain of command, then Sheridan will find out and I will have broken the promise. But if I break my promise by telling you, since you are not in the chain of command, he may not find out about this and I will have not broken the promise."
"I'm in awe, Lennier. The way you can take a straightforward, logical proposition and turn it inside-out so that in the end it says .. what you want it to say instead of what it actually means. Does this come naturally or did you .. attend some special martial arts class for the philosophically inclined?"
	-- Lennier and Marcus in Babylon 5:"Grey 17 is Missing"
"I am a Ranger. We walk in the dark places no others will enter. We stand on the bridge and no one may pass. We live for the One, we die for the One."
	-- Marcus to Neroon in Babylon 5:"Grey 17 is Missing"
"There is now blood between us, and there is blood between the warrior caste and the humans. I do not think they would die for me. But they would die .. for you. .. Entil'Zha."
	-- Neroon to Delenn in Babylon 5:"Grey 17 is Missing"
"This should never have been allowed to happen, not for my sake."
"If not for yours, then who elses?"
"You could've got him killed."
"Delenn, all we know is that we will die. It's only a matter of how, when and whether or not it is with honor. He did what any of us would've done. Respectfully, Delenn, I think this is the one thing about your position you do not yet understand. You cherish life, life is your goal. But for the greater part to live, some must die, or be harmed in its defense, and yours. There is no other way."
	-- Delenn and Lennier in Babylon 5:"Grey 17 is Missing"
"He will not hear you."
"Then I will speak briefly."
	-- Delenn and Neroon in Babylon 5:"Grey 17 is Missing"
"Denn Shar, you said. To the death. And death there was. The death was mine. To see a human invoke the name of Valen, be willing to die for one of my kind when I was intent upon killing one of my own, the rightness of my cause disappeared. Strange, that a human in his last moments should be more of a Minbari than I. Perhaps it is true what Delenn said. That we are not of the same blood, but we are of the same heart."
	-- Neroon to Marcus in Babylon 5:"Grey 17 is Missing"
"The next time .. the next time .. you want a revelation .. could you possibly find a way .. that isn't .. quite so .. uncomfortable?"
	-- Marcus to Neroon in Babylon 5:"Grey 17 is Missing"
"Okay. Well, first, there was this missing maintenance man. Only he wasn't missing, he was killed by a Zarg. But I'm getting ahead of myself. That was after I found out that the entire 17th floor grey sector had completely disappeared. Well, not disappeared exactly, this weird cult had taken over the place, see, and there was this dummy that shot tranqs out of his eyes. Very strange, but it was also supposed to be perfect. Now that was the thing about it, but there wasn't a way out, but there was, except it was spiritual. You had to die a perfect death, that's where the Zarg came in and either it was going to kill me or I was to kill it and.. Am I going too fast for you?"
	-- Garibaldi to Sheridan in Babylon 5:"Grey 17 is Missing"
