"Into the Fire"

[GUIDE] [Background] [Synopsis] [Credits] IndexPrev Next

"There is time for one more. This is the last. It's important to have them all. Keep sending the signal."
	-- Lorien to Ivanova in Babylon 5:"Into the Fire"
"He's making a crucible, which he hopes will force out the truth. Quite brave, possibly futile, but .. very human."
	-- Lorien to Ivanova in Babylon 5:"Into the Fire"
"Vorlon observation post destroyed."
	-- Lennier to Sheridan in Babylon 5:"Into the Fire"
"Win or lose, we'll go down fighting. Pour it on, Mr. Lennier. Take us into the fire."
	-- Sheridan in Babylon 5:"Into the Fire"
"I was told you were ready to leave."
"Almost. You are awfully impatient for someone who's supposed to be immortal."
"Not immortal as you mean it. My race can die .. through illness or injury."
"Where are the rest of them?"
"They fell ill and died, were injured and died. The rest went away. I am the last .. and I was the first."
"I have to admit I'm a little bit sceptical about that."
"Scepticism is the language of the mind. What does your .. heart tell you?"
"My heart and I don't speak anymore."
"Yes, I have noticed that."
	-- Lorien and Ivanova in Babylon 5:"Into the Fire"
"To live on as we have is to leave behind joy, and love, and companionship, because we know it to be transitory, of the moment. We know it will turn to ash. Only those, whose lives are brief can imagine that love .. is eternal. .. You should embrace that remarkable illusion. It may be the greatest gift your race has ever received."
	-- Lorien to Ivanova in Babylon 5:"Into the Fire"
"You misunderstand me, Prime Minister. I was merely being specific. In my experience, if you can not say what you mean, you can never mean what you say. The details are everything."
	-- Durano to Londo in Babylon 5:"Into the Fire"
"Your patience is also a weapon, when used properly. We will arrive when we arrive and we will have the weapons we have. You can not win this war through force, you must .. understand your way out of this. Sheridan knows. What remains to be seen is whether he knows that he knows."
	-- Lorien to Ivanova in Babylon 5:"Into the Fire"
"There are three billion people here. The Vorlons would never attack a civilian population that big. The ships stay."
"You are afraid, aren't you? They're afraid. And speaking of your associates, we must make sure that we can talk privately. Do not move."
	-- Morden and Londo in Babylon 5:"Into the Fire"
"You are insane."
"On any other day, Mr. Morden, you would be wrong. Today, today is a very different day. One last time: remove your ships."
"No. You don't frighten me, Mollari. If you try to attack our forces, you'll lose."
"Yes, your ships are very impressive in the air, or in space. But at this moment they are on the ground."
"Fine. They're on the ground, but they can sense an approaching ship miles away. So what are you going to do, Mollari? Blow up the island?"
"Actually, .. now that you mention it."
"Noooo!"
	-- Morden and Londo in Babylon 5:"Into the Fire"
"You just made a mistake, Londo. Even if my associates lose this war they have allies. They'll make sure Centauri Prime pays the price for what you've done here today."
	-- Morden to Londo in Babylon 5:"Into the Fire"
"Good morning, gentlemen. This is your wakeup call."
	-- Sheridan in Babylon 5:"Into the Fire"
"There is nothing to tell. You thought we could not touch you. You were wrong."
	-- 'Vorlon Lyta' to Sheridan in Babylon 5:"Into the Fire"
"And you they have left .. for us."
	-- 'Shadow Lyta' to Delenn in Babylon 5:"Into the Fire"
"Oh, but I do understand. But that's what's got you worried, isn't it? A Vorlon said understanding is a three-edged sword: your side, their side .. and the truth. The truth is we don't need you anymore."
	-- Sheridan to 'Vorlons' in Babylon 5:"Into the Fire"
"You don't want to kill the messenger, you just want to kill the message."
	-- Sheridan to 'Vorlons' in Babylon 5:"Into the Fire"
"After all, if you destroyed the Vorlons, they'll never know you won. They'll never see that you were right and they were wrong. It's about ideology."
	-- Delenn to 'Shadows' in Babylon 5:"Into the Fire"
"Will you come with us?"
"I have been here since the beginning. I will not leave you now. I will go with you beyond the rim. And we will see again all those who went ahead of us, all those who we have missed for so long."
	-- Shadows and Lorien in Babylon 5:"Into the Fire"
"Then we will not be alone?"
"No, never alone."
	-- Vorlons and Lorien in Babylon 5:"Into the Fire"
[First Ones leaving]
"Did we just win?"
"Don't jinx it."
	-- Marcus and Ivanova in Babylon 5:"Into the Fire"
"We are all alone now, just the younger races. We can't blame anyone else from now on. It's a new age, Delenn, a third age."
"Why third?"
"We begun in chaos, too primitive to make our own decisions. Then we were manipulated from outside by forces that thought they knew what was best for us. And now .. now we are finally standing on our own. Lorien was right, it's a great responsibility. This is ours now."
"Strange. The galaxy seems somehow smaller now that the First Ones are gone forever."
"It feels like the magic's gone now."
"No, not gone. Now we make our own magic. Now we create our own legends. Now we build the future. Now we stop--"
"--being afraid of shadows."
	-- Sheridan and Delenn in Babylon 5:"Into the Fire"
