ISN Anchor Desk - Season 2

Points of Departure

Hague - "We have a renegade warship on our hands."

Sheridan - "General, with all due respect, the last time I made Ďpersonal contactí with a Minbari warship, I sent it straight to hell."
Hague - "Thatís why I want you in that part of space, Captain."

Hague - "I need you to do one other job and this one comes straight from the President."

Susan Ivanova - "Status report, Lt. Commander Susan Ivanova reporting. It is now eight days since the death of Earth Alliance President Louis Santiago, and five days since Commander Sinclair was recalled to Earth without explanation. And the whole place has gone straight to hell."

Susan Ivanova - "And as far as Iím concerned, the transports can wait until the sun explodes! And if youíre not happy with the seating arrangement, I will personally order your seats to be moved outside, down the hall, across the station, and into the fusion reactor. Am I being absolutely, perfectly clear about this?"

Susan Ivanova, continued - "I can only conclude that Iím paying off Karma at a vastly accelerated rate. Security chief Michael Garibaldi remains in critical condition in MedLab. Dr. Franklin has done all that he can, but we still donít know if heíll recover. As for Ambassador Delenn, well, something is going on in her quarters, thatís for sure."

Hague - "Your Commanding officer, Commander Sinclair, will not be returning to Babylon 5. Heís being reassigned permanently."

Hedronn - "Prophecy will attend to itself, we told her. Now we are committed to the path."

Sheridan - "Itís amazing what two years on the Rim can do to you."

Susan, to Sheridan - "I hear they still call you Star Killer"

Kalain - "The Grey Council never tells anyone the whole truth, does it?"

Sheridan, to Kalain - "Why are you here?"

Lennier - "It is our belief that every generation of Minbari is reborn in each following generation."

Alyt - "All that remains now is honor and death."

Susan - "I learned a long time ago that thereís enough guilt in the world without grabbing for more."


Londo "One deserts his post without explanation, the other takes the most breathtakingly inconvenient moment possible to explore new career options. Like becoming a butterfly!"

Lennier - "Ambassador Delenn remains indisposed."
Londo - "Indisposed? Sheís in a cocoon!"
Lennier - "Yes?"

Londo - "Why donít you eliminate the entire Narn homeworld while youíre at it?"
Morden - "One thing at a time, Ambassador."

GíKar - "Weep for the future, NaíToth. Weep for us all."

Garibaldi - "Whatís up, Doc?"

Garibaldiís Assassin - "Be seeing you."

Sheridan - "Good-bye. I love you, Anna."

Geometry of Shadows

Londo - "Vir, do you believe in Fate?"
Vir - "Well, actually, I believe there are currents in the universe, eddies and tides that pull us one away or the other. Some we have to fight, and some we have to embrace. Unfortunately, the currents we have to fight look exactly like the currents we have to embrace."

Purple Drazi - "Green"
Green Drazi - "Purple!"

Elric - "You donít frighten easily."
Vir - "I work for Ambassador Mollari. After awhile, nothing bothers you."

Elric - "There is an old saying. Do not try the patience of wizards, for they are subtle and quick to anger."

Elric - "Captain, do you believe there is such a thing as magick?"

Susan - "Just my luck. I get stuck with a race that speaks only in macros."

Computer, to Londo - "Congratulations. You are now the owner of 500,000 shares of Fireflies, Inc."

Drazi Ambassador - "Rules of combat older than contact with other races. Do not mention aliens. Rules change ... caught up in ... committee. Not come through yet."

Londo, to Elric - "I apologize!"

Elric, to Londo - "You are touched by Darkness, Ambassador. I see it as a blemish that will grow in time. Iíd warn you, of course, but you would not listen. Iíd kill you, but someone would take your place. So, I do the only thing I can. I go."

Elric, to Londo - "As I look at you, Ambassador Mollari, I see a great hand, reaching out of the stars. The hand is your hand. And I hear sounds, the sounds of billions of people calling your name."
Londo - "My followers?"
Elric - "Your victims."

A Distant Star

Susan - "Captain, I believe your friend Stinky has arrived."

Delenn - "Understanding is not required. Only obedience."

Susan - "Suddenly I am the expanding Russian frontier."
Franklin - "But with very nice borders."

Sheridan - "And Iíll tell you one thing: If the primates that we came from hand known that someday politicians would come out of the gene pool, they would have stayed up in the trees and written evolution off as a bad idea."

Susan - "No ship thatís been lost in HyperSpace has ever been found again."
Sheridan - "I know."

Delenn - "We are starstuff. We are the universe, made manifest, trying to figure itself out."

Susan - "That reminds me. Whereís Garibaldi?"

Sheridan - "Ever have a long talk with Ambassador Delenn, Commander?"
Susan - "From time to time, why?"
Sheridan - "She and the universe seem to have a ... special understanding."
Susan - "Donít we all?"
Sheridan - "Starstuff-."

The Long Dark

Amis - "I have walked in the valley of --"
GíKar - "Good. Keep on walking!"
Londo - "Hurry, Ambassador! Heís gaining!"

Amis - "Iíve found that life is in general much easier if I forget most of the things that happen to me."

GíKar - "The future isnít what it used to be."

Spider in the Web

Sheridan - "Ah, itís good to be the Captain!"

Sheridan - "I trust in individuals, not organizations."
Susan - "Then you may trust Miss Winters."

Abil - "Free Mars!"

Garibaldi, to Talia - "Tea just happens to be my third favorite thing in the universe."

Susan - "Tell him to go away. Tell them all to go away."

Soul Mates

Timov, to Vir - "I said you will take me to my husband. Is your hearing deficient?"

Garibaldi - "You know him?"
Talia - "Only in the most unpleasant sense. I was married to him."

Timov - "I wonít bite, Vir."
Vir - "With all due respect, Maíam, thatís not what Iíve heard."
Timov - "All right, that one time."
Vir - "Twice."
Timov - "All right ..."

Delenn, to Susan - "I trust you"

Timov, to Daggair - "A bitch like you would know about breeding!"

Garibaldi - "Garibaldi, head of security."
Matt Stoner - "So, if Iím feeling insecure, hugging you would make me feel better?"

Lennier - "Is that painful?"
Delenn - "Actually, itís oddly relaxing."

Londo - "You havenít changed."
Timov - "You have. Youíve devolved."

Londo - "A deck of cards from my dear friend Lennier."
Lennier - "And I marked them exactly as you requested."

Franklin - "Londo, do you know where you are?"
Londo - "Either in MedLab or in Hell. Either way the decor needs work."

Franklin - "Stick it."
Londo - "How odd. And I didnít even know we were married."

GíKar - "If I were married to Londo Mollari, Iíd be concerned."
Mariel - "GíKar, if you were married to Londo Mollari, weíd all be concerned."

Londo, to Timov - "Because with you, I will always know where I stand."

Delenn, to Susan - "Do you have any idea why I suddenly started getting these odd cramps?"

A Race Through Dark Places

Psi Cop - "He is dead."
Bester - "It doesnít matter"

Franklin - "You sure you know what youíre doing?"
Sheridan - "Absolutely."

Sheridan - "One day theyíre shooting at you, the next theyíre taking you out to dinner. What a universe."

Bester - "Why else would they try to kill me?"
Susan - "Is this a multiple-choice question?"

Susan - "I like the idea of Earth Central paying rent to itself. Thereís a certain ... symmetry ... to it."

Susan, to Talia, re: Psi Corps pin - "No. You donít offend me. But that does."

Coming of the Shadows

Vir - "Londo, please. I know you donít listen to me, but Iím asking you to, just this one time."

Londo - "I understand. By this time tomorrow, we will be at war with the Narn."

GíKar - "I had no idea."
Franklin - "Maybe thatís the biggest tragedy of the whole damned story."

GíKar - "Sit. Itís not every day I have a revelation!"

GíKar, to Londo - "To the health of your Emperor!"

Ranger - "I have a message"

Emperor - "I would, very much, like to have seen a Vorlon."

Emperor - "How will this end?"
Kosh - "In fire"

Londo - "We are both damned."
Lord Refa - "Itís a small price to pay for immortality."

Garibaldi - "Aside from me, does anyone else know youíre here?"
Ranger - "Just one other."

Sinclair, to Delenn - "Hello, old friend."

Sinclairís message to Garibaldi - "Hello, old friend. Itís been awhile. I'm entrusting this message to an associate of mine who has sworn to bring it to you at any cost, including his own life. My job on the Minbari Homeworld is more than just representing Earth. The President doesnít know about that part yet and I donít think it would be wise for you to tell him. There is a great darkness coming, Michael. Some of the Minbari have been waiting for it for a long time. The bearer of this message is one of my Rangers. Some are Minbari, most are Human. Theyíve been drawn here, to learn to work together and prepare for the fight ahead. Their job, for now, is to patrol the frontier. To listen, to watch, and return with reports too sensitive to entrust to regular channels. They are my eyes and ears. Where you see them, you see me. In the name of our friendship, I ask that you give them every courtesy and cooperation. I wish I could tell you more, that I could warn you. But the others donít think itís time yet. Stay close to the Vorlon and watch out for Shadows. They move when youíre not looking at them."


Garibaldi - "Thatís my dad."
Gen. Franklin - "So much for genetics."

Kliest - "What are you?"
Delenn - "I am a Minbari."

Dodger - "Nice butt"

Dr Franklin - "Itís always later with you, isnít it?"
Gen. Franklin - "You are dismissed, Doctor!"
Dr Franklin - "Yes, sir!"

Gen. Franklin to Dr Franklin - "In the meantime, please, call your mother and sisters!"

All Alone in the Night

Sheridan - "What could go wrong?"

Delenn - "Have I mentioned recently how much I appreciate you, Lennier?"
Lennier - "Not really, but it will give us something to discuss on our trip."

Hedronn - "From this day forth, you are no longer a member of the Grey Council, no longer Satai. Iím sorry, Delenn."
Delenn - "Wait. What about my appointment on Babylon 5? My position as Ambassador was separate from my role as Satai."
Hedronn - "We are still debating this."

Sheridan - "Why are you doing this? Why are you torturing me?"

Hague - "On the theory that we need added fire power, I placed a few calls of my own."

Susan - "What do you mean Ďyesí??? Itís me."

Susan - "Oh my God! Theyíve spaced the captives. Killed them. Those arrogant sons of ... Take them down!"

Kosh, to Sheridan - "You have always been here."

Hague - "Weíre going to take back our government."

All Alone in the Night - The Dream

Raven Susan - "Do you know who I am?"

Raven Garibaldi - "The man in-between is searching for you."

Death Susan - "You are the hand."

Sheridan - "Why are you here?"

Kosh - "We were never away. For the first time, your mind was quiet enough to hear me."

Sheridan - "Why am I here?"
Kosh - "You have always been here."

Acts of Sacrifice

GíKar - "If Earth takes a stand, the rest will follow!"

GíKar - "Hatred kept us alive."

GíKar - "Do you want me to beg, Delenn?"

Londo - "Six months ago, they were hardly aware of me. Now, suddenly, everyone is my friend. They all want something. I wanted respect, instead I have turned into a wishing well with legs."

Londo, to Bartender - "That was my good friend, Mr. Garibaldi. Good to have friends, is it not?"

Narn, about GíKar - "Heís spent so much time with the Humans he even talks like them."

Susan - "Thank you, but this is not ... ah, nuts!"

Delenn - "I do not have the same resources I once had, Captain."

Franklin, to Susan - "You could put a bag over his head and do it for Babylon 5. Maybe not."
Susan - "Iím doomed."

Susan - "Thatís it!"
Franklin " Iíll get a needle"

Susan - "Boom shakalakalaka. Boom shakalakalaka."

Correlilmurzon - "What do I do now?"
Susan - "Old style? Roll over and go to sleep. New style, you go out for pizza and I never see you again."
Correlilmurzon - "Perhaps Iíll call you before I go."

Correlilmurzon - "Next time, my way."
Sheridan - "Commander, is there something youíd like to tell me?"

Londo - "It is good to have friends, is it not, Mr. Garibaldi? Even if maybe only for a little while."

Hunter, Prey

Garibaldi - "Youíre a Doctor. You should know better."

Sheridan - "Am I ready?"
Kosh - "No. You do not even understand yourself."
Sheridan - "Could you help me to understand you?"
Kosh - "Can you help me to understand you?"
Sheridan - "Well, I can try. Is that what you want, an exchange of information? I tell you something about me, and you tell me something about you?"
Kosh - "No. You do not understand. Go."
Sheridan - "Dammit, what do you want? What do you want from me?"

Sheridan - "What do you want?"
Kosh - "Never ask that question."
Sheridan - "At least I got a response out of you."
Kosh - "I will teach you."
Sheridan - "About yourself?"
Kosh - "About you. Until you are ready."
Sheridan - "For what?"
Kosh - "To fight legends."

Sheridan - "Itís what weíve always suspected, but could never prove. The Vorlons use organic technology."

Jacobs - "The ship ... it sang to me."

There All the Honor Lies

Susan - "Welcome to Babylon 5. The last, best hope for a quick buck."

Susan - "Weíre not some deep space franchise. This station is about something!"

Minbari - "Death first!"

Sheridan, to Garibaldi - "You do have a suspicious mind. I like that."

Susan - "Never fear answers. Only fear running out of questions."

Kosh - "The lesson."

Kosh - "What is this place?"
Sheridan - "Pretty much the worst part of down-below."

Sheridan - "Whatís inside there?"
Kosh - "One moment of perfect beauty."

Susan - "Another lesson? What this time?"
Sheridan - "Beauty. In the Dark."
Susan - "Must be working. Youíre beginning to talk just like a Vorlon."

Londo - "Captain! Commander! Can we talk?"

Ashan - "You would believe the humans over one of your own?"
Lennier - "Yes."
Ashan - "Why?"
Lennier - "Because SHE does."
Ashan - "Delenn? She is nothing!"

Sheridan - "You donít lie, the Minbari donít lie, nobody around here --"
Londo - "Who said the Minbari donít lie?"

Londo - "There is honor in helping another save face."

And Now For a Word

Cynthia - "The most important rule of survival aboard Babylon 5: Expect the unexpected."

Advertisement - "Interplanetary Expeditions: exploring the past to create a better future."

Cynthia - "Now, Commander. Iím sure thereís more to your story than that."
Susan - "Yes."

Cynthia, to Camera - "Did we get that? Tell me we got it. Did we get it?"

GíKar - "There are humans for whom the words ĎNever Againí carry special meaning, as they do for us."

GíKar - "We will never fall back, never surrender."

Johnny - "Mom, look! A Psi Cop!"

Mom - "My Johnny, a telepath?"

Advertisement - "The Psi Corps is your friend. Trust the Corps."

Sheridan - "The last thing the Centauri want is a war on two fronts."


Urza - "How fitting you should die with a song on your lips, Mollari."

Sheridan - "Iíve been attacked by aliens before, but never by dead ones."

Urza, to Londo - "Your Star is once again in ascendance."

Garibaldi, to Sheridan - "Does the term obsessive compulsive ring a bell?"

Londo - "You would fight me to the death, Urza?"

Vir - "This is insane!"
Londo - "Insanity is part of the times!"

Londo - "I have made many choices lately, Vir. And today, for the first time, I am not sure if those choices were right."

Vir - "On rare occasions, I am proud to be your attachť."

In the Shadow of ZíHaíDum

Morden, to Sheridan - "Nice shoes."

Morden, to Sheridan - "Youíre playing a very dangerous game, captain. It could cost you ..."

Sheridan, to Morden - "You will not leave here until I know the truth."

Franklin, to Susan - "Do you believe in God, Susan?"
Susan - "I suppose."

Franklin - "The closer you get to defining God, the further away it gets."

Sheridan, to Morden - "WHAT HAPPENED TO THE ICARUS???"

Talia - "Captain, youíre trying to use the letter of the law to defeat the spirit of the law."

Delenn - "Be warned. Once you know the secret, once you know what we have known for the past 3 years, you will never sleep well again. Come, Captain. The greatest nightmare of your time is waiting for you."

Delenn - "To all things, there is an end."

Delenn - "The Shadows were old when even the Ancients were young."

Delenn - "The First Ones went away, all but one."

Delenn - "Kosh would be recognized."
Sheridan - "Recognized? By whom?"
Kosh - "Everyone."

Sheridan - "Yes was the answer. What was the question?"
Delenn - "Have the Shadows returned to ZíHaíDum?"

Kosh - "Sheridan. Learn."

Sheridan - "Anna. The Icarus. They found something. They woke something up."

Delenn - "Morden is never alone!"

Zack - "Iím glad itís a decision I donít have to make. I donít think I could live with myself. How many lives is a secret worth?"

Zack - "What did you see?"
Sheridan - "Nothing. Shadows."

Sheridan, to Garibaldi - "You were right and I was wrong."

Garibaldi, re: NightWatch armband - "Whatís that?"
Zack - "I figured what the hell."

Sheridan - "I let him go. But there is a pricetag attached. Youíve been trying to help so we understand each other. Thatís not what I want anymore. I want you to teach me how to fight them, how to beat them. Because sooner or later, Iím going to ZíHaíDum. And Iím going to stop them."
Kosh - "If you go to ZíHaíDum, you will die."
Sheridan - "Then I die. But I will not go down easily, and I will not go down alone. You will teach me?"
Kosh - "Yes."

Confessions and Lamentations

Franklin - "Unlike Mr. Garibaldi, I donít like mysteries."

Delenn - "You were asleep."
Sheridan - "No. No. I was ... meditating."
Lennier - "The sound you were making was part of meditating?"

Sheridan - "If I let you into that isolation zone, I .. canít let you out again."
Delenn - "I know."

Delenn - "If I donít see you again here, I will see you in a little while in the place where no Shadows fall."

Sheridan - "Delenn, when I do see you again ... call me John."

Delenn, to Lennier - "Faith manages."

Lennier, to Delenn - "Faith manages."

Divided Loyalties

Delenn - "I find the concept of press a fascinating and troubling one."

Garibaldi, to Sheridan - "After the scan, she was never quite the same."

Lyta - "I donít wanna be alone with any of you!"

Lyta - "This place is important to a LOT of people. More important than you could possibly know. So, I had to come back."

Susan - "Does the phrase ĎNo way in hellí ring a bell?"

Susan - "Dammit, Talia! I donít know who I can trust anymore."
Talia - "Thereís only one person on this station that I can trust implicitly. You."

Lyta, to Delenn - "I need your help."

Delenn - "Are you in some kind of trouble?"
Lyta - "Ambassador, I think Iím in just about every kind of trouble there is."

Susan, to Sheridan - "I let myself in. You should change your lock code more often."

Susan, to Sheridan - "Iím a latent telepath."

Sheridan - "Garibaldi believes her."
Susan - "Garibaldi doesnít believe anyone."
Sheridan - "Exactly."

Susan - "Some days, I donít even know who I am anymore."

Dream Susan - "Do you know who I am?"

Garibaldi - "Boo! Gotchya!"
Sheridan - "Michael! If you ever do that again ..."

Sheridan - "Zack."
Zack - "Sir."
Sheridan - "Thank you for coming."
Zack - "Yes, Sir."
Sheridan - "Thatíll be all."
Zack - "Thatís it?"
Sheridan - "Yes."

Susan, to Lyta - "I suggest you move those eyes somewhere else, while you still have them."

Lyta - "Sheís clean. Iím sorry."
Susan - "Go to hell."

Lyta - "My God, itís her!"
Talia - "You bitch!"

Talia - "The Corps is Mother. The Corps is Father. Youíre dead. Lyta Alexander. Weíll find out. The Corps will find you!"

Sheridan - "Sounds like an old-fashioned Mexican standoff to me."

Talia, to Susan - "The Talia you knew no longer exists."

Susan, to Talia - "Youíre right. The Talia I knew is dead. Good-bye."

Lyta - "Kosh. I want to see you again, just one more time before I go."

The Long, Twilight Struggle

Delenn - "Hello, old friend."

Draal, to Sheridan - "You donít have any idea who I am, do you?"

Londo, to Refa - "My allies have begun to worry me."

Refa, to Londo - "Cheer up. By the time you return to Babylon 5, the war will be over."

Refa - "Come, Londo. Destiny awaits."

Sheridan - "Positive?"
Delenn - "Absofragginlutely, dammit!"

Delenn - "Weíre here."
Draal - "Did you think I hadnít noticed, my old friend? Youíve changed! I like it!"

Draal, to Sheridan - "In the long, twilight struggle which lies ahead of us, there is the possibility of hope."

Draal, to Delenn - "Itís time to introduce him to the others."

Draal - "Zathras! Zathras! Never around when heís needed."

GíKar - "Captain Sheridan, Iíve been instructed by my government to come and ask for ... sanctuary."

Londo - "I have an announcement to make."

GíKar - "No dictator, no invade can hold an imprisoned population by force of arms forever. There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom. Against that power, governments and tyrants and armies cannot stand. The Centauri learned that lesson once. We will teach it to them again. Thou it take a thousand years, we will be free."

GíKar, to Sheridan - "The last time I offered someone my hand, we were at war 24 hours later."

Sheridan - "A line has been drawn against the Darkness, and we will hold that line, no matter the cost."

Comes the Inquisitor

Delenn - "Is there something wrong?"
Kosh - "I have sent for an inquisitor."

Delenn - "Ambassador Kosh has doubts."
Sheridan - "About what?"
Lennier - "Doubt is the wrong word."

Delenn - "Ambassador Kosh is unsure about me."

Chase - "I thought the war was over."
GíKar - "You were misinformed."

Sebastian - "I believe I am expected."

Sheridan - "When were you last on Earth?"
Sebastian - "Long ago."

Sebastian, to Sheridan - "I have told you all that I intend to."

Sebastian - "Who are you?"
Delenn - "Delenn."
Sebastian - "Unacceptable answer. Who are you?"

Vir, to GíKar - "Iím sorry. I wish there was something I could do. I tried telling them, but they wouldnít listen. They never listen. Sorry."
GíKar - "Dead, dead, dead, dead, dead, dead, dead, dead, dead. How do you apologize to them?"
Vir - "I canít."
GíKar - "Then I cannot forgive."

Sebastian - "Perhaps, the world is right and Delenn is wrong. Have you ever considered that? Have you?"
Delenn - "Yes. Sometimes."
Sebastian - "Then there may yet be hope."

Lennier, to Sheridan - "They Inquisitor! I think heís killing her."

Sebastian - "And the final player in our little drama arrives at last."

Delenn - "Stop!"

Sebastian - "What is she to you?"
Delenn - "None of your concern."

Delenn - "If I fall, another will take my place. And another. And another."
Sebastian - "But your great cause?"
Delenn - "THIS is my cause! Life! One life or a billion, itís all the same!"
Sebastian - "Then you make the sacrifice willingly?"
Delenn - "Yes."

Sebastian - "I have been in service of the Vorlons for centuries."

Sebastian - "When the Darkness comes, know this: You are the right people in the right place at the right time."

Sebastian - "Remembered only as Jack..."

The Fall of Night

Lennier - "Sometimes, I get so close, and yet it seems like I get shut out of the important things."
Vir - "Itís a useless feeling. The Ambassador is definitely going through some changes. He even looks different."
Lennier - "Indeed. And now with the military starting to stampede over everyone and everything."
Vir - "Coming and going and secret meetings."
Lennier - "You never know what itís all about until later when itís too late."
Vir - "And they never listen to us."
Vir and Lennier - "Makes me nervous."
Vir - "Same time tomorrow?"
Lennier - "Sure."

Nakal - "We request sanctuary."

Susan - "My hands are clean. Are yours?"
Mr. Welles - "You really donít understand."

Mr. Lance - "Iím here to sign a non-aggression treaty with the Centauri."

Susan - "Merry. Christmas. Happy Hanukkah. Whatever."

Susan - "Companyís coming."

Delenn - "Kosh, you know what is at stake. If you are going to do anything, you must do it now."

Sheridan, to Angel - "Kosh?"

Londo, in blooper reel - "I tawt I taw a puddy cat."

The Fall of Night - Susanís Speech

Commander Susan Ivanova - "It was the end of the Earth year 2259, and the war was upon us. As anticipated, a few days after the Earth-Centauri treaty was announced, the Centauri widened to include many of the Non-Aligned worlds. And there was another war brewing closer to home ... a personal one, whose cost would be higher than any of us could imagine. We came to this place because Babylon 5 was our last, best hope for peace. By the end of 2259, we knew that it had failed, but in so doing, it because something greater. As the war expanded, it became our last, best hope for victory. Because sometimes, peace is another word for surrender, and because secrets have a way of getting out ..."
