"That's got to be a great feeling; Emperor Mollari the First."
"The Second."
"There was one before you?"
"Yes. Long ago. He, too, ended badly."
"Now, come on, you've got your whole life ahead of you. Why would you say a thing like that?"
"Because I know. My people always know. I don't know why, or how, or where, but I can feel it to the very core of my being, Mr. Allan. This is where it begins to go badly for all of us."
	-- Zack and Londo in Babylon 5:"Strange Relations"
"The willow is deceptively strong. It bends, but it does not break. Its roots are deep and can withstand the worst storm. It promises rest, and shade, and cool breezes to those who would find rest beneath it. You have become my willow. and we have all found shelter in your kindness."
	-- Byron to Lyta in Babylon 5:"Strange Relations"
"I do not feel as if I am doing enough for the Alliance, Delenn."
"Be careful, G'Kar. When the universe hears you say something like that, it tends to answer in the most surprising ways."
	-- G'Kar and Delenn in Babylon 5:"Strange Relations"
"How am I doing so far?"
"Annoyingly logical."
"Thank you."
"It wasn't a compliment."
	-- Lochley and Sheridan in Babylon 5:"Strange Relations"
"I'm caught in a web of my own good intentions."
"Well, the road to hell is paved with them, sir."
"I know, but why does it have to go through this office?"
	-- Sheridan and Lochley in Babylon 5:"Strange Relations"
"Where are you going?"
"To pound someone, Mr. Allan. You win. I just decided if you can't join them, beat them."
	-- Zack and Lochley in Babylon 5:"Strange Relations"
"Not bad. Tell me, is that really telekinesis, or are you just pushing the nerve endings, making them feel as if they've been slapped? Either way, it's taken a lot out of you, Lyta. You're sweating, flushed. How many times can you do that, Lyta? Can you do just one at a time? Maybe two? How about three? How about a half dozen of us?"
"I don't know. Like you said, I'm new at this. I could even make a mistake. Maybe even pop a blood vessel in someone's head by accident by pushing too hard. Feel like playing the odds, Mr. Bester?"
	-- Bester and Lyta in Babylon 5:"Strange Relations"
"What the hell is your problem?"
"For starters, I don't know you, therefore I don't trust you."
"The world's full of people you don't know."
"I worry about that all the time."
"Tough. Get over it."
	-- Lochley and Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"Strange Relations"
"Now, I don't actually like him, and I sure as hell don't trust him, but so far he hasn't done anything unpleasant to me. I'm sure he will, because this place seems to bring that out in everyone, but until then, I have an obligation to be courteous."
"And I have an obligation to shove his face through a bulkhead."
"Your hobbies are your concern, Mr. Garibaldi. Just do it where I can't see it, and do it quietly."
	-- Lochley and Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"Strange Relations"
"We met fresh out of officer training school. We hit it off, fell crazy in love, got married, realized we'd made a terrible mistake, fell crazy out of love, and split up."
	-- Lochley to Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"Strange Relations"
"I could hide you."
"I believe you could. I believe you would protect me until the stars themselves went cold and dead, but my people need me, and i must go to them."
	-- Lyta and Byron in Babylon 5:"Strange Relations"
"He should have a bodyguard assigned to him at all times while he is there. Someone we can rely on, someone, uh .. someone we can trust. Someone strong .. strong enough to.."
	-- Delenn to G'Kar in Babylon 5:"Strange Relations"
"The Alliance is about learning to overcome our distrust and form a new community. Can you think of a better symbol?"
"No, and I'm trying, believe me."
"You would naturally have to accompany him on all state business and be there to guard him. In the palace. In the Royal Court."
"A Narn in the Centauri Royal Court? Ha Ha Ha! It is a curiously satisfying image, Delenn."
	-- Delenn and G'Kar in Babylon 5:"Strange Relations"
"'Earth Alliance medical routine, number 725-IT7.' Dr. Franklin just hit me with the paperwork a couple of hours ago. 'No interstellar traveler who's been in unknown space shall be allowed within the borders of Earth-controlled space until after a 60-day quarantine period.'"
	-- Lochley to Bester in Babylon 5:"Strange Relations"
"Just keep an eye on them, Captain. Don't trust them for a second, because, sooner or later, they will turn on you. You know all about that, don't you, Byron?"
	-- Bester to Lochley in Babylon 5:"Strange Relations"
"G'Kar? You've assigned G'Kar as my bodyguard?"
"Yes. I think your generosity in working with him will be an excellent symbol of unity for all the other races who could join the alliance."
"A symbol."
"Yes."
"And you tried this line on G'Kar?"
"I did."
"And did it work?"
"Completely."
"Great Maker."
	-- Londo and Delenn in Babylon 5:"Strange Relations"
"I want the aisle seat."
"Oh, no, no, no. You sit on the inside. I want the aisle."
"If you sit on the aisle, I cannot protect you."
"But .. I don't like the inside. It's too cramped. I become nauseous."
"I'll make sure they have a supply of space sickness bags."
	-- G'Kar and Londo in Babylon 5:"Strange Relations"
"You don't have to solve every problem all at once. Problems are solved in pieces. If you're on the seventh floor of a burning building, you can either die or jump out the window. Once you're out the window, you're alive for another two seconds, during which time you figure out the solution to the next problem and so on and so on."
	-- Lochley to Corwin in Babylon 5:"Strange Relations"
"And we will all come together in a better place, a better place than this"
"My love will guide you, my love will hold you"
"And my love will show you the way"
"There will come a tomorrow where we're free from our sorrows"
"And our love will show us the way"
"We are strong in each other, we're sister and brother"
"And we will all come together in a better place, a better place than this"
"My love will guide you, my love will hold you"
"And my love will show you the way"
"There will come a tomorrow where we're free from our sorrows"
"And our love will show us the way"
