"Phoenix Rising"

"We should expect some losses on their side, but let's try to keep it within acceptable limits. The Corps is mother, the Corps is father -- in that way these are our children that've gone astray. We have to at least try to bring them in alive so that we can correct their thinking."
	-- Bester in Babylon 5:"Phoenix Rising"
"Our job is to protect normals from rogue telepaths. Perhaps now you'll understand why we are necessary. Every race to develop telepaths has had to find some way to control them: through laws, religion, drugs, or extermination. We may not be pretty .. but we're hell of a lot better than your alternatives."
	-- Bester to Lochley in Babylon 5:"Phoenix Rising"
"There's only one thing more dangerous than Mr. Garibaldi when he's loud. .. It's when he's dead silent."
	-- Sheridan to Lochley in Babylon 5:"Phoenix Rising"
"This isn't a discussion, Bester."
"Yes, it is. You won't shoot."
	-- Bester and Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"Phoenix Rising"
"Let me ask you something, Mr. Garibaldi, purely philosophical question. On a scale of 1 to 10, .. how stupid do you think I am anyway?"
	-- Bester to Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"Phoenix Rising"
"I tried to teach them, to show them that there is another way than violence. Did I fail that badly?"
"You can't change human nature, Byron."
"Then there is not much point in living, is there? We can't hope for something better, something nobler, at least something kinder."
	-- Byron and Lyta in Babylon 5:"Phoenix Rising"
"I'm a strong P12."
"But all P12's are automatically designated .. Psi-Cops. You were a Psi-Cop?"
"Not just a Psi-Cop. Bester's protegé."
	-- Byron and Lyta in Babylon 5:"Phoenix Rising"
"What do you know about neural blocks?"
	-- Garibaldi to Franklin in Babylon 5:"Phoenix Rising"
"You say you're doing this for a cause. What kind of sympathy you're gonna get by killing innocent people in cold blood? If you want to send a message, this ain't it."
	-- Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"Phoenix Rising"
"Didn't have to end like this."
"It still doesn't."
"Yes it does. We can't go back now. There's too much blood. We are no longer who we were. We are what we have become, what you [Bester] made us!"
	-- Byron and Sheridan in Babylon 5:"Phoenix Rising"
"And we will all come together in a better place, a better place than this.."
	-- Byron (sings) in Babylon 5:"Phoenix Rising"
"You're satisfied, Mr. Bester?"
"No, not at all. I don't understand it. Despite of it all, I always thought that at the end of the day we're on the same side. They just needed someone to explain it to them .. so they'll understand who the real enemy was."
"Us, the mundanes."
"We weren't supposed to fight each other, not like this. I don't understand, .. I truly .. don't."
	-- Sheridan and Bester in Babylon 5:"Phoenix Rising"
"ISN has just learned that the main headquarters for the Psi-Corps was bombed early this morning by unknown parties. The only clues found at the scene were the words 'remember Byron' painted on the side of the building."
