"Sleeping in Light"

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

"The Interstellar Alliance, based on the homeworld of the Minbari Federation was founded in the Earth year 2261, shortly after the end of the Shadow war, 20 years ago. Twenty years of history."
	-- Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"Sleeping in Light"
"The sun's coming up."
	-- Sheridan to Delenn in Babylon 5:"Sleeping in Light"
"She's Minbari. You know, sometimes, I look at her and I know exactly what she's thinking. Sometimes, .. she's a mystery to me."
	-- Sheridan to Franklin in Babylon 5:"Sleeping in Light"
"You know, Londo never liked the Pak'ma'ra. I mean, they're stubborn, lazy, obnoxious, greedy--"
"They kinda look like an octopussy that got run over by a truck."
"That too, but .. one day Londo and I were walking past their quarters .. and we heard them .. singing."
	-- Vir and Garibaldi in Babylon 5:"Sleeping in Light"
"Singing? They can sing?"
"There's nothing about that in the literature."
"Apparently it's something they only do certain times of the year as part of their religious ceremonies. You may not believe this, but .. it was the most beautiful sound I've ever heard. I couldn't make out the words, but I knew it was full of sadness and .. hope and wonder and .. terrible .. sense of loss. I looked at Londo and -- this is the amazing part -- there was a .. tear running down his face. I said: 'Londo, we should leave.' And 'This is upsetting you.' He just stood there and .. listened. And when it was over he turned to me and he said: 'There are 49 gods in our pantheon, Vir. To tell you the truth I never believed in any of them. But if only one of them exist, .. then god sings with that voice.' It's funny. After everything we've been through, all he did, .. I miss him."
	-- Sheridan, Franklin, Vir in Babylon 5:"Sleeping in Light"
"Toast. To absent friends, .. in memory still bright."
	-- Sheridan in Babylon 5:"Sleeping in Light"
"I want to feel space beneath me, one last time. It's where I belong, where I have always belonged. Besides, everything we've built here, with the Alliance, has .. become .. half reality, half mythology. And if it all ends here like it ends anywhere else.. but if it ends out there .. they'll remember it."
	-- Sheridan to Delenn in Babylon 5:"Sleeping in Light"
"Redundant."
	-- Sheridan in Babylon 5:"Sleeping in Light"
"Quarter million people, coming and going every day for 25 years. Every part of this station has somebody's fingerprints on it. Layers, and layers, people's lives."
	-- Zack to Sheridan in Babylon 5:"Sleeping in Light"
"There were times .. I thought none of us would get out alive. Some of us didn't. But, we did everything we said we were gonna do and nobody can take that away from us, or this place."
	-- Zack to Sheridan in Babylon 5:"Sleeping in Light"
"Who are you? What do you want? Why are you here? Where are you going?"
"Lorien."
"Did you think we had forgotten you? We have been waiting .. for you."
"Beyond the rim?"
"Yes."
"There is .. so much I still don't understand."
"As it should be."
"Can I come back?"
"No. This journey has ended. Another begins. Time .. to rest now."
	-- Lorien and Sheridan in Babylon 5:"Sleeping in Light"
"Well, look at that. The sun's coming up."
	-- Sheridan in Babylon 5:"Sleeping in Light"
"An expedition to Coriana space found Sheridan's ship a few days later, but they never found him. All the airlocks were sealed, but there was no trace of him inside. Some of the minbari believe he'll come back someday, but I never saw him again in my lifetime."
	-- General Ivanova in Babylon 5:"Sleeping in Light"
"Babylon 5 was the last of the Babylon stations. There would never be another. It changed the future .. and it changed us. It taught us that we have to create the future .. or others will do it for us. It showed us that we have care for one another, because if we don't, who will? And that true strength sometimes comes from the most unlikely places. Mostly, though, I think it gave us hope .. that there can always be new beginnings .. even for people like us."
	-- General Ivanova in Babylon 5:"Sleeping in Light"
