"All I know is that they hate comets. Even mentioning a comet to a Brakiri is some kind of, like, awful taboo. Death. It's the symbol of death."
	-- Garibaldi to Lochley in Babylon 5:"Day of the Dead"
"He's hosting a cocktail party for, uh .. Rebo and Zooty. Now, later tonight, we are having dinner with them."
"Rebo and Zooty are here? Zoot zoot? This is truly a day of wonders."
	-- Delenn and Lennier in Babylon 5:"Day of the Dead"
"Oh, this is a moment you can tell your children about, Captain."
"I'll get on to having some right away."
"What?"
"I said I have an appointment with the Brakiri ambassador. I'm on my way."
	-- Sheridan and Lochley in Babylon 5:"Day of the Dead"
"G'Kar, as you can see, I'm rather busy, but I believe you know Ambassador Kullenbrak. He's here to--"
"I know! That is why I came. I strongly advise you against this transaction. It is dangerous and foolish and unwise."
"Religious toleration is foolish?"
"This is not a matter of toleration. You do not know what you are doing."
"The declaration of principles of the alliance .. You are familiar with it, I trust?"
"I wrote it!"
"It states that religious belief shall be sacrosanct."
	-- Lochley and G'Kar in Babylon 5:"Day of the Dead"
"You see, Minbari humor is based not on physical danger or embarrassment or rejection, like human humor, but rather on the failure to obtain, uh .. emotional or spiritual enlightenment."
	-- Rebo to Sheridan in Babylon 5:"Day of the Dead"
"You know, I was really hoping to talk to Zooty, you know, without the machine."
"Yeah. He never breaks character, not even around me. In 10 years, I've only heard him say one word without the machine."
"Oh. Oh. What's the word?"
"Why."
"Oh, just curious."
"No, no. that was the word: 'Why'. In 10 years I haven't figured it out myself."
	-- Sheridan and Rebo in Babylon 5:"Day of the Dead"
"So .. When you were emperor, it meant something. Subduer of the Xon and the Shoggren. .. Now .. Ptttp! Anyone can be emperor. I can be emperor. Vir can be emperor. If Vir can be emperor, a small earth cat can be emperor. .. Come on. Talk to me. It's the day of the dead."
	-- Londo in Babylon 5:"Day of the Dead"
"I thought you'd be pleased to see me."
"But I .. I thought you were dead."
"Ah. You know, the reports of my death, they weren't even exaggerated a little bit. Yeah, I'm .. I'm dead. But, you know, I missed you, and how often do dead people get second chances?"
	-- Garibaldi and Dodger in Babylon 5:"Day of the Dead"
"You don't party? Jeez, Lizzie, what'd you grow up to be? We had such fun, didn't we? Didn't we have such fun?"
"No. We were cold, sick, and we were hungry all the time. We did things to survive. I've done my best to forget."
	-- Zoe and Lochley in Babylon 5:"Day of the Dead"
"There seems to be a slight problem, sir. It's kind of hard to explain. We seem to be missing a piece of the station. We can't reach it. We can't communicate with it."
"That piece is almost a square mile across. You can't just lose something that big."
"I agree, but it's still missing."
	-- Corwin and Sheridan in Babylon 5:"Day of the Dead"
"Any Emily Dickinson poem can be sung to the tune of the Yellow Rose of Texas."
	-- Dodger to Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"Day of the Dead"
"You don't come to the dead for wisdom, Lennier."
	-- Morden to Lennier in Babylon 5:"Day of the Dead"
"Why did you help me? I know what kind of a man you were."
"Give a dog a bad name, and you can hang him with it. You shouldn't listen to everything Sheridan tells you. Actually, I'm surprised he's not here tonight, since he died at Z'ha'dum. Is there any coffee here or not?"
	-- Lennier and Morden in Babylon 5:"Day of the Dead"
"I'm prophetic, not infallible."
"I think you are neither, but at least you have shown me there is truly life beyond death."
"Not necessarily, but you'll find that out soon enough."
	-- Morden and Lennier in Babylon 5:"Day of the Dead"
"You know, making people laugh is .. is ok. I mean, I .. I enjoy getting a laugh, but, uh, I don't know. We wanna do something more important."
"But you two have a real gift. I mean, when things were bad under president Clark, you two said things on your show that no one else would dare to say."
	-- Rebo and Sheridan in Babylon 5:"Day of the Dead"
"But no one takes comedians seriously."
"Isn't that a contradiction?"
	-- Rebo and Delenn in Babylon 5:"Day of the Dead"
"No. We say serious things in a funny way, but when the joke comes, people stop listening. The real comedy all happens in the senate. They do .. they do one idiotic thing after another, but people listen because they say it seriously. I don't know whether we're leaving comedy to go into clown school, but all I do know is that, uh .. comedians don't matter."
"Well, if you don't matter, nothing matters. I mean, the only reason politics exist is to ensure that people have the freedom to laugh."
	-- Rebo and Sheridan in Babylon 5:"Day of the Dead"
"So who is this Sheridan guy? .. It doesn't matter. So did you get married?"
"Married. Um, actually, to that Sheridan guy. Didn't work."
	-- Zoe and Lochley in Babylon 5:"Day of the Dead"
"I think we need a little mystery once in a while. Oh, and, uh, speaking of mysteries, I have a message for you. It's from someone named Kosh."
".. What's the message?"
"'When the long night comes, return to the end of the beginning.'"
"Uh, thank you, Captain."
	-- Lochley and Sheridan in Babylon 5:"Day of the Dead"
"You're so funny. From now on, I will always watch you. Zoot zoot. Very funny. I thought perhaps you could perform at my inauguration. however, to make a Centauri laugh, I have to give you a piece of advice."
	-- Londo to Rebo in Babylon 5:"Day of the Dead"
"What did he say?"
"'Because it tells me to.'"
	-- G'Kar and Sheridan in Babylon 5:"Day of the Dead"
