Lochley - "I'm pretty much up to speed on all the reports."

Ruell - "Well, I believe the request stated that his return would be permanent."
Londo - "Do you know what this is, hmm? No, I can see you do not. You have this vacant look in your eyes that says 'Hold my head to your ear; you'll hear the sea'. This is Brevari. Very old Brevari. Very expensive Brevari. Do you understand Brevari?"
Londo - "Here, take my shoe. It will be as useful to you as he is."

Dr. Franklin - "Might as well stay here and see what happens."

Dr. Franklin - "He's going into shock. This could be it!"
Dream G'Kar - "Now, Mollari. Now we end this."

Delenn - "Hello, Mack, Bo."

Lyta - "Bloodhound units."
Lochley - "A very long time ago, Sheridan and I were married, for all of about 3 months."

Secrets of the Soul *Zack - "You don't understand."
Lyta - "No, I understand, Zack. I understand plenty. You and the others needed my help during the Shadow War and I did that. I put my life on the line and what did I get? You were going to boot me into smaller quarters because I couldn't afford anything better? The only way I got out of that was to rejoin the Psi Corps, and you don't even want to know the deal I had to make to pull that one off."
Zack - "Lyta -"
Lyta - "I'm not finished. After all that, you had the never to ask me to risk my life a second time during the Civil War back home, and stupid me, I did it. And what did I get out of that? Nothing. Nada. Zip. Zilch. I got no life, no hope, no prospects. Now along comes Byron, and for the first time in a long while, I feel like someone actually cares about what happens to me."
Zack - "I care what happens to you, Lyta."
Lyta - "Yeah, well.. maybe that's true. Talk is cheap, Zack. Byron is putting his life on the line to create something for his people. And I'm one of them. He's given us back a sense of dignity, and community. I'm proud of that, and I'm proud of him. If you can't handle that, I'm sorry, but there's nothing I can do about it."
Byron - "There's much more to you than meets the eye."
Lyta - "Byron, the Vorlons ... changed me. More than you could possibly know, and I don't know what it'll do once you get past my barriers and I get past yours. I could burn you."
Shadow-Lyta - "I can feel them!"

Lochley - "Zoe? Oh my God, Zoe!"
Morden - "Looking back, on it, though, I think I just tried to make people happy."
Morden - "Delenn does not love you as you love her, and she never will."
Morden - "I'm surprised he's not here tonight, since he died at Z'Ha'Dum. Is there any coffee here or not?"
Morden - "You will betray the Anla'Shok."
Lennier - "You have shown me that there is life beyond death."

G'Kar - "Order her release at once!"
G'Kar - "One way or another, we will leave here with Na'Toth. Or, by G'Quan, I swear I will see this palace in flames and I will see you burning with it!"
Londo - "For my next trick, I shall fly around the room under my own power."
G'Kar - "It's animal magnetism. What can I say?"
Centauri Female - "What would you like to do now, Prime Minister?"

Bester - "Just playing, Chen."

Entil'Zha Susan Ivanova - "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."
Susan - "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 to 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. As for Delenn, every morning for as long as she lived, Delenn got up before dawn, and watched the sun come up."
