"You are a source of constant annoyance to me, Turval, but only because
you're right more often than you're wrong. And why should i keep this joy
to myself? I choose to share you with the universe. Valen help them all."
-- Sech Durhan to Sech Turval in Babylon 5:"Learning Curve"
"It's good to see you down here again. Didn't know whether you'd still hang
around with us grunts now that you've been promoted."
"It's still just little ol' me, Zack. I don't change. I don't have the time."
-- Zack and Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"Learning Curve"
"Now, there have been a lot of rumors about you since you got on board this
station, captain. Maybe everybody else is afraid to ask. I don't have that
problem. You see, I don't work for you. I answer only to Sheridan. So I
want to know, just for me, which side were you on?"
-- Garibaldi to Lochley in Babylon 5:"Learning Curve"
"You just keep doing what you're doing. Michael will come around,
eventually. He's a good man."
"I know. I just .. I just never thought I'd meet a second man as
strong-willed, stubborn, and annoying as I am. My cup runneth over."
-- Sheridan and Lochley in Babylon 5:"Learning Curve"
"We have no idea what to do with the Pak'ma'ra. They're slow, greedy,
selfish, not very bright. They refuse to speak anything other than their
own language, so we have to use a translator. And they're carrion-eaters.
If it's not five days dead and decayed, they won't touch it."
-- Sech Durhan to Delenn in Babylon 5:"Learning Curve"
"Our training methods were created by Minbari to serve Minbari. But if there
is any lesson to be learned from the humans, it is that we are made stronger
by our differences, not weaker. If the Pak'ma'ra cannot learn to be what we
think they should be, then perhaps we should learn to use them for what they
-- Delenn to Sech Durhan in Babylon 5:"Learning Curve"
"This may not be a good idea."
"We should learn about all the dark places here, since that
is where we will do our work. .. In the dark."
-- Tannier and Rastenn in Babylon 5:"Learning Curve"
"We create the meaning in our lives. It does not exist independently. Being
Anla-shok does not mean worrying about what others will think about us.
It does not mean deciding what to do based upon whether or not it serves
our sense of ego or destiny. It means living each moment as if it were your
last one. It means doing each right thing because it is the right thing.
The scale doesn't matter. The where, the when, the how, or in what cause ..
none of those things matter. In my life, I've discovered very few truths.
Here is the greatest truth I know: Your death, Rastenn, will have a meaning
if it comes while you're in fullest pursuit of your heart."
-- Sech Turval to Rastenn in Babylon 5:"Learning Curve"
"As Anla-shok, we choose to do that which frightens us, knowing that
there are no guarantees. He may lose. We cannot help him."
"Then he will stand alone."
"At the end, Captain, .. we all stand alone."
-- Delenn and Lochley in Babylon 5:"Learning Curve"
"Attend, students, this is a classic archetype in action. The strong man or
'bully', as the humans call it, essentially a coward whose only skill is
convincing others to do what he's afraid to do himself."
"Notice the lack of technique, no follow through. Another flaw in this
particular personality type. .. all muscle, no brain."
-- Sech Turval and Sech Durhan in Babylon 5:"Learning Curve"
"You, uh, got the captain's file there?"
"No. Go away."
"I could just peek--"
"You know, Michael, you and the Minbari have one thing in common:
You never know when to leave something alone."
-- Garibaldi and Zack in Babylon 5:"Learning Curve"
