"The Ragged Edge"

[GUIDE] [Background] [Synopsis] [Credits] IndexPrev Next

"G'Kar, this is a strange thing. In the past it was a great relief to leave Babylon 5 and a great joy to return home. Now it is a relief to leave Centauri Prime and be anywhere else. I don't know what to call home anymore."
"Have you considered the possibility that you are simply not meant to be happy no matter where you are?"
"No, I haven't. Not until you witched it. I thought you were supposed to be protecting me, looking out for my best interests."
"I am. The warrior in me is watching out for your life, but the Narn in me has decided that it's your spririt that's in the greatest need of protection."
"Now, is it me, or are people looking at us?"
"At me, actually."
"Why?"
"I don't know."
	-- Londo and G'Kar in Babylon 5:"The Ragged Edge"
"I've always said this about you: Nothing so improves your company like the lack of it. The less they see of you, the more they like you."
	-- Londo to G'Kar in Babylon 5:"The Ragged Edge"
"Ta'Lon? Ta'Lon, is it you?"
"It's me most days, except for those days when I don't feel quite like myself and I suppose that I am someone else, but for now: yes, it's me."
	-- G'Kar and Ta'Lon in Babylon 5:"The Ragged Edge"
"Where is my book? It is my only copy!"
"Yes, that is precisely the point. The Kha'Ri felt that if anything happened to you, the book of G'Kar would never see the light of day, so they .. liberated it."
"Liberated it?"
"We took it home. Those that read it were very moved by it and they made some copies."
"Copies?!"
"Just a few, .. for their friends. A few more, .. later few more copies."
"How many?!"
"That's hard to say, exactly. There was some confusion when it went to the printers."
"Printers?! I've only been gone for a month, Ta'Lon, there can't be that many copies floating around this quickly. How many?"
"Five or six .. hundred .. thousand."
"What?"
"I've been told that it will out-sell the book of G'Quan. .. Congratulations, citizen G'Kar. You are now a religious icon."
	-- G'Kar and Ta'Lon in Babylon 5:"The Ragged Edge"
"Michael. You know, if you've ever got a problem, anything at all you want to talk about, you know where to find me, don't you?"
"I hear you. See ya."
	-- Franklin and Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"The Ragged Edge"
"Good morning, G'Kar. Well, this is a delight, I didn't know you had children."
"Neither did I."
"Yes, most unsettling when that happens, or then in your case most amusing."
	-- Londo and G'Kar in Babylon 5:"The Ragged Edge"
"So, what happened to your hair?"
	-- Tafiq Azir to Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"The Ragged Edge"
"It's not about teaching something, it's about unlearning hatred and unlearning fear. As a warrior, I can not teach them these things. But you can."
	-- Ta'Lon to G'Kar in Babylon 5:"The Ragged Edge"
"All my life .. I have been responsible only for myself. When I risk, I risked alone to avoid making others pay the price for my mistakes. They want me to chose them another way. What if I show then the wrong way? What if they come to me not because of the lesson but because of the teacher? I worry, Ta'Lon, that my shadow may become greater than the message."
"If that happens, I give you my word that I will personally kill you."
"This is supposed to put my mind at ease?"
"I'm a warrior. It's what I have to give. You and I both have our burdens to bear, G'Kar. I will carry mine, .. if you will carry yours."
	-- G'Kar and Ta'Lon in Babylon 5:"The Ragged Edge"
"From here on out we tell Londo only what he needs to know and that's all."
	-- Sheridan in Babylon 5:"The Ragged Edge"
"Keep an eye on him, G'Kar. He may be our only chance to solve this thing. But I'd rather not do it at the cost of his life."
"An eye is all I have these days."
	-- Sheridan and G'Kar in Babylon 5:"The Ragged Edge"
"In the past we had little to do with other races. Evolution teaches us that we must fight that which is different in order secure land, food, and mates for ourselves, but we must reach a point when the nobility of intellect asserts itself and says: No. We need not be afraid of those who are different, we can embrace that difference and learn from it."
	-- G'Kar in Babylon 5:"The Ragged Edge"
"Effective January one, 2263, I will be the new head of xenobiological research at EarthDome."
	-- Franklin to Sheridan in Babylon 5:"The Ragged Edge"
