"Besides, we don't often see a sense of humor in Psi-Cops."
"Reports of our depression are wastly exaggerated."
	-- Lauren Ashley and Bester in Babylon 5:"The Corps is Mother, the Corps is Father"
"The Corps is Mother, the Corps is Father"
	-- A sign in Babylon 5:"The Corps is Mother, the Corps is Father"
"Protect the Family"
	-- A sign in Babylon 5:"The Corps is Mother, the Corps is Father"
"But I thought Babylon 5 was your main assignment these days."
"No, but I'm sure they think so. They have a tendency of putting their station at the center of the universe."
	-- Ashley and Bester in Babylon 5:"The Corps is Mother, the Corps is Father"
"OBEY"
	-- A sign in Babylon 5:"The Corps is Mother, the Corps is Father"
"There's always somebody or something trying to be the most important thing in the world. No. Much as it might offend their sense of perspective, not everything is about Babylon 5."
	-- Bester in Babylon 5:"The Corps is Mother, the Corps is Father"
"Who do you think you..who do you think you are? You can't..you can't hold me. You can't hide from me too long. You can't hide. I told you it was my mind..I told you it was my mind. You listen? You listen, I told you. You don't listen, you don't hear me, yet you are telling me the same thing. My..my mind. My mind. My mind. Not yours, my Freud. My mind. My mind, not yours."
	-- Jonathan Harris in Babylon 5:"The Corps is Mother, the Corps is Father"
"BabCom"
"Stay in touch with family and business alike with state of the art communications and delivery services. Let us be your new partner."
"Babylon 5 for the business of today and the hope of tomorrow."
	-- Ad in Babylon 5:"The Corps is Mother, the Corps is Father"
"TRUST THE CORPS"
	-- A sign in Babylon 5:"The Corps is Mother, the Corps is Father"
"Do you get used to it?"
"When it's one of ours, no. With mundanes it's easier. They hate it when you say that, but it's the truth. They kill and slave and abuse each other with efficiency and enthusiasm. Why should we value their lives when they don't? It's a little harder with rogues and blibs. Being a telepath means you're special, and rare, and valuable."
	-- Lauren Ashley and Bester in Babylon 5:"The Corps is Mother, the Corps is Father"
"My parents were killed in an accident. I was barely a month old. When I was put into a foster home, I turned up in a random DNA checks. The Corps took me in, raised me, and taught me that because we are special we need to watch out for each other, even more than we would as mundanes. We are responsible for each other."

	-- ID File in Babylon 5:"The Corps is Mother, the Corps is Father"
"Does the mothership ever leave hyperspace?"
"Only for repairs and we can do so it without being seen. No reason for the rest of the world to know what our resources are. The rest of the time it just sits here in hyperspace for months at a time carrying missions back and forth and waiting until we need it, just like all the others."

"I've seen all kinds, kid. Seen an alien come through here last week with eight compound eyes and a glass stomach. Two fingers of gin, he's down, completely unconscious for a two full hours, and he wants to do it again. I've seen a naked Pak'ma'ra once. You know that hump on their back? It's not a hump at all, it's a--"

"does he know. He doesn't."

	-- Harris' Note in Babylon 5:"The Corps is Mother, the Corps is Father"
"These papers, different styles of handwriting, different names, but not different people. The same person, with multiple personalities. That's why we misidentified his rating. One personality was a P10, the other was a P12. It's rare, but it has happened before."
	-- Bester in Babylon 5:"The Corps is Mother, the Corps is Father"
"I didn't do anything. The dark man and the laughing man .. and me and Harris, .. we are all in this together. It's nobody's fault, really. It's nobody's fault. We all did it. You have to understand, please. They made us do this. They got us in San Francisco."
	-- Harris in Babylon 5:"The Corps is Mother, the Corps is Father"
"Oh, come on, doctor, we have a history here. Tell the truth. You don't want me here a second more than I want to be here."
"Personally, no. But as a doctor I have to treat all my patients equally, even the annoying self-righteous arrogant ones with self-important delusions of godhood."
"Thank you, I feel far more at home now."
	-- Bester and Franklin in Babylon 5:"The Corps is Mother, the Corps is Father"
"Game, set, match. Be seeing you, doctor."
