"No Compromises"

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

"Just personalities, any .. internal conflicts I need to be made aware of. Beyond that, I've thoroughly researched Babylon 5's operational procedures, personnel records .. I'm pretty much up to speed on all the reports."
"With all due respect, there's a lot that doesn't fit into a report."
"Then the report is incomplete."
	-- Captain Lochley and Corwin in Babylon 5:"No Compromises"
"It's nothing personal, but I need to send a message to Babylon 5. That's what you Rangers are for, right? Getting messages from one place to another. So you're the right person in the right place at the right time. For me anyway."
	-- John to a Ranger in Babylon 5:"No Compromises"
"And so it begins."
"There is a hole in your mind."
"What do you want?"
"No one here is exactly what he appears."
"Nothing's the same anymore."
"Commander Sinclair .. is being reassigned."
"Why don't you eliminate the entire Narn homeworld while you're at it?"
"I see a great hand reaching out of the stars."
"Who are you?"
"President Clark has signed a decree today declaring martial law."
"These orders have forced us to declare independence."
"Weapons supplies."
"Unless your people get off their encounter-suited butts and do something."
"You're the one who was."
"If you go to Z'ha'dum, you will die."
"Why are you here?"
"Do you have anything worth living for?"
"I think of my beautiful city in flames."
"Like giants in a playground."
"Get the hell out of our galaxy!"
"We are here to place president Clark under arrest."
	-- Season Opener in Babylon 5:"No Compromises"
"The newly elected president of the Interstellar Alliance, about to be officially sworn in, washing his own socks? You're a very strange man, even for a human."
"Why, thank you."
	-- Delenn and Sheridan in Babylon 5:"No Compromises"
"You're good with diplomacy when possible, but you know how to fight when you have to. And you speak your mind. Now, whoever's running B5 for the next year is going to be on the hot seat. I chose you strictly on your background. You are the perfect choice."
	-- Sheridan to Lochley in Babylon 5:"No Compromises"
"I want the authority to go with it. I won't be interfered with or second-guessed or micromanaged. .. Sir."
	-- Lochley to Sheridan in Babylon 5:"No Compromises"
"I'm sorry, but I'm--"
"Working. Yes, I can see. Books, manuals, directives, regulations, the geometries that circumscribe your awaken life, drawn narrower and narrower until nothing fits inside them anymore. My name is Byron."
	-- Lochley and Byron in Babylon 5:"No Compromises"
"Well, Mr. Garibaldi says it's very well written."
"Well, I .. I'm sorry, there's just the one copy for now, and well .. when I loaned it to Mr. Garibaldi, it came back with coffee stains. I can't--"
	-- Sheridan and G'Kar in Babylon 5:"No Compromises"
"I will not sleep, eat, drink, nothing! The words and I will be locked in mortal combat until one of us surrenders."
	-- G'Kar to Sheridan in Babylon 5:"No Compromises"
"That's a tall order."
"Perhaps. But where is it written that all our dreams must be small ones?"
	-- Lochley and Byron in Babylon 5:"No Compromises"
"As strong as you think you are, the one thing you can't stop is the lone gunman determined to kill you, even if he gets killed in the process. I'm that man, Sheridan."
	-- John in Babylon 5:"No Compromises"
"On my world, we have learned that an inauguration is simply a signal to assassins that a new target has been set up on the firing range."
	-- Londo to Sheridan in Babylon 5:"No Compromises"
"I'm glad you talked him out of it. I have no desire to be struck blind by the sight of Londo naked."
	-- Sheridan to Delenn in Babylon 5:"No Compromises"
"Whoever speaks for the Alliance speaks with one voice for many. Consequently, this contains the first page of every holy book of every race that has joined the new Alliance. Whoever speaks for the Alliance does so with the understanding that it is the inalienable right of every sentient being to live free, to pursue their dreams, to address wrongs within their own society without fear of retribution, to believe as their conscience requires in matters of faith, but also to respect the rights of others to believe differently, or not at all. Do you, John J. Sheridan--"
	-- G'Kar in Babylon 5:"No Compromises"
"You want to be president?"
"Yes."
"Put your hand on the book and say, 'I do.'"
"I do."
"Fine. Done. Let's eat."
	-- G'Kar and Sheridan in Babylon 5:"No Compromises"
