"A View from the Gallery"

"Apparently, wing of a hostile alien force that's scouting out this sector for likely worlds to invade. For 'likely' read 'soft and vulnerable.' Our task is to make sure they either don't leave here, or they leave convinced that we are neither soft nor vulnerable and way too much trouble to invade. We win this battle, they go away, we save ourselves a great deal of trouble in the future. We lose, this'll get a hell of a lot worse."
	-- Captain Lochley in Babylon 5:"A View from the Gallery"
"You've seen him and Delenn together, right? Now that's true love, my friend. You don't see that very often."
"Quite very true. He's a good man."
"Yep. A good man."
"I heard he was dead once."
"Yeah, well, nobody's perfect, Bo."
	-- Mack and Bo in Babylon 5:"A View from the Gallery"
"Hey, .. Can I ask you a question?"
"Shoot."
"What the hell are these things for?"
"What do you mean?"
"I mean, what do they do?"
"What do you mean what do they do? You run 'em along the floor, like this."
"Ok. So what does it do? It's not any cleaner."
"Don't know. Maybe it looks for cracks on the floor or it does something to the metal .. makes it stronger. I don't know."
"So you don't know either?"
"No."
"Well .. I guess it's time for lunch."
"Yep."
	-- Bo and Mack in Babylon 5:"A View from the Gallery"
"What does it taste like?"
"Hard to say, Bo. Um, kind of, um .. spooish, I guess."
"No. You're supposed to say chicken."
"Huh?"
"It's a joke. Whenever you eat something strange and someone asks, 'What does it taste like?' you're supposed to say chicken. It's funny that way."
"It doesn't taste like chicken."
	-- Bo and Mack in Babylon 5:"A View from the Gallery"
"So, what happened to the doctor that helped your dad?"
"Shot and killed by his own men. Said he was a traitor."
	-- Bo and Franklin in Babylon 5:"A View from the Gallery"
"You're supposed to be the head of covert intelligence. Right now, I'm not seeing a hell of a lot of intelligence. Covert, overt, or otherwise!"
	-- Lochley to Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"A View from the Gallery"
"At the moment of death, there is a passing of energy. An explosion of consciousness. It permeates everything in close proximity: your clothes, jewelry, .. anything. We can still feel him, .. what he was, .. what he did, .. his hopes, .. and fears, .. and expectations. It's still there for a few minutes. .. Then it will disappear. .. Joining him in silence."
	-- Byron in Babylon 5:"A View from the Gallery"
"Bringing us into a world that fears us and hates us, nature did not leave us entirely without protection."
	-- Byron in Babylon 5:"A View from the Gallery"
"I was .. never a child. I had responsibilities. I've had responsibilities for as long as I can remember. Duty. Honor. Family."
"Ah. That explains a great deal."
"Really? And what exactly does it explain, G'Kar?"
"I spent my years in one shelter after another. But sooner or later, I was able to leave the shelter and walk out into the daylight. You do not have that luxury. You carry your shelter with you, .. every day. You didn't grow up. You grew old."
	-- Londo and G'Kar in Babylon 5:"A View from the Gallery"
"Then, as you said to me once: 'I will see you in a little while, in a place where no shadows fall.'"
	-- Sheridan to Delenn in Babylon 5:"A View from the Gallery"
"If I'm launched in a life pod and let's say, shortly after the launch, the equipment is accidentally smashed from the inside, what would happen to the pod?"
	-- Delenn to Mack & Bo in Babylon 5:"A View from the Gallery"
"Now .. time being circular .. if we know that this will happen, then we may as well assume that it has happened already and that the life pod is not safe for me to enter."
	-- Delenn to Mack & Bo in Babylon 5:"A View from the Gallery"
"Suddenly, I think I understand Sheridan a lot better."
"How so?"
"Well, dead or alive I'd claw my way out of hell and straight through 10 miles of solid rock to see that smile again."
	-- Bo and Mack in Babylon 5:"A View from the Gallery"
"She remembered my name."
"Our names."
"I think I'm in love."
"She's married."
"We'll work something up."
	-- Bo and Mack in Babylon 5:"A View from the Gallery"
