"Captain's personal log, September 2nd, 2261. Enough is enough."
	-- Sheridan in Babylon 5:"No Surrender, No Retreat"
"We'll hit them in waves. Try to isolate the ships we need to destroy from the ones who won't fight unless they have to. Then we'll give them a chance to surrender or join up."
"And if they don't?"
"We take them out. Hey, I don't like the idea any more than you do, but either we commit ourselves to this completely or we don't do it. Once we pull the first trigger we can't hesitate to pull the next one, because they sure won't. Now, once we're in, we're in: no surrender, no retreat."
	-- Sheridan and Ivanova in Babylon 5:"No Surrender, No Retreat"
"I didn't do it! I didn't do it! Thank the Great Maker it was just a dream."
	-- Vir in Babylon 5:"No Surrender, No Retreat"
"So from now on I guess the operational phrase is 'Trust no one.'"
"No. Trust Ivanova, trust yourself, anybody else: shoot them."
	-- Corwin and Ivanova in Babylon 5:"No Surrender, No Retreat"
"Hello, G'Kar. I don't believe I have ever been in your quarters before. Unless you count a cell on Centauri Prime."
"I apologize for the lack of chains. The cleaning service must have removed them."
"It has much the same feeling as your world: dry, .. red, .. and depressing."
	-- Londo and G'Kar in Babylon 5:"No Surrender, No Retreat"
"How is the eye?"
"It sees."
	-- Londo and G'Kar in Babylon 5:"No Surrender, No Retreat"
"I have no interest in your thanks."
"I did not think that you would, but it is there anyway. [sighs] As I said, a hard year."
	-- G'Kar and Londo in Babylon 5:"No Surrender, No Retreat"
"When I saw you in that cell, beaten, chained .. As I said, we have never been friends, we will never be friends. There is too much blood between us, too much history. But I did feel for you, as much as I did not want to. In the beginning, it was little more than sympathy one might feel for any trapped animal. But in time .. I came to respect you.
"Your respect matters to me even less than your thanks."
"You are not going to give me even an inch, are you?
	-- Londo and G'Kar in Babylon 5:"No Surrender, No Retreat"
"You may not believe this G'Kar, but all I ever wanted is what is right for my world. I'm a patriot, as you are. I have made some .. very poor choices in the last two years. Because I did not think, those choices almost destroyed my world, and yours. That is a humbling realization, G'Kar. If, with a single wrong word, I can become the enemy, do I any longer really understand who the enemy is?"
	-- Londo to G'Kar in Babylon 5:"No Surrender, No Retreat"
"Because, while I do not know who the enemy is any longer, I do know who my friends are, and that I have not done as well by them as I should. I hope to change that. I hope to do better."
	-- Londo to G'Kar in Babylon 5:"No Surrender, No Retreat"
"Before war broke out between our governments, you bought me a drink. I wish to return the favor. For the first time in a hundred years, we have something in common beyond hatred. I find that most extraordinary, and so a drink to the humans, and to the bridge that they created between us in the hope for a better future for both our worlds."
	-- Londo to G'Kar in Babylon 5:"No Surrender, No Retreat"
"Earth's Last Best Hope"
	-- A Poster in Babylon 5:"No Surrender, No Retreat"
"It looks as if we won."
"No, we achieved the mission objective. It is not a victory. Too many on both sides had to die for it."
	-- Marcus and Sheridan in Babylon 5:"No Surrender, No Retreat"
