"Conflicts of Interest"

"If you're gonna wait for the universe to start making sense, you have a long wait ahead of you."
	-- Sheridan to Zack in Babylon 5:"Conflicts of Interest"
"If we're gonna broadcast all the way back home, we're going to need a helluva lot more power than we've got now. And I don't know where we're gonna get it. I mean, I've been working on this for days, I don't have a clue."
"What about Epsilon 3? During the war we evacuated a lot of the wounded down there for safe-keeping. Now, I've spent a lot of time looking around, there's enough power down there to broadcast clear to the Rim."
"Or, -- just a crazy thought -- I could try Epsilon 3."
"Yeah, you could do that, yeah."
"I mean, it's the logical choice. Anybody could see that in about two seconds. I mean, only a complete fool would fail to see that."
"Well, I wouldn't.."
"It's absolutely obvious."
"Well, I wouldn't have thought of it, that's for sure."
"No, you are far too modest, Stephen."
"No, no, no. That's why you get paid big bucks, after all."
"Yep, that's my job."
	-- Ivanova and Franklin in Babylon 5:"Conflicts of Interest"
"Excuse me, I need to see Draal."
"Oh, Draal is very busy! Have had four ground quakes on other side of planet. Damage to weather control system, to great machine."
"Zathras!"
"Yes?"
"What the hell are you doing here?"
"Zathras work here. Zathras were born here. You work up there, Zathras work down here. You dress like that, Zathras dress like this."
"That's not--"
"Just covering all possibilities. Zathras does not want you being confoosed. Bye."
"Hey! Wait a minute! You are not supposed to be here. We left you a thousand years in the past."
"No! We have never met before. But Zathras very pleased to be meeting you."
"No, we have met."
"No. Oh. No, noo. No no. You did not meet Zathras. You met Zathras."
	-- Ivanova and Zathras in Babylon 5:"Conflicts of Interest"
"Let's try this again."
"As you wish."
"Zathras came with us to Babylon 4."
"Yes."
"Zathras stayed in the past with Valen."
"Yes."
"You are Zathras."
"Yes."
"Therefore, you went into the past."
"No, that was not Zathras, that was Zathras. There are 10 of us, all of family Zathras, each one named Zathras. Slight differences in how you pronounce. Zathraas, Zathras, Zathras.. You are seeing now?"
"There are ten of you?"
"Yes! Well, nine now."
"And Zathras?"
"Zathras gone! Zathras warned Zathras, but Zathras never listened to Zathras. Zathras was quiet one in family. SO! What can Zathras be doing for you?"
	-- Ivanova and Zathras in Babylon 5:"Conflicts of Interest"
"Everyone always coming to Zathras with problems. Great responsibilities. But Zathras does not mind. Zathras trained in crisis management."
"That's great, lets--"
"But only Zathras have no one to talk to. No one manages poor Zathras, you see. So Zathras talks to dirt. Sometimes talks to walls, or talks to ceilings. But dirt is closer. Dirt is used, through everyone walking on it. Just like Zathras, but we've come to like it. It is our role. It is our destiny in the universe. So, you see, sometimes dirt has insects in it. And Zathras likes insects. Not so good for conversation, but much proteine for diet. Ha! Zathras fix now, this way."
	-- Zathras and Ivanova in Babylon 5:"Conflicts of Interest"
"It's easy to come together for a common enemy. Now our job is to come together for a common goal."
	-- Sheridan to G'Kar & Londo in Babylon 5:"Conflicts of Interest"
