    Look, I've rigged the fusion reactors but there's not much time. Get going, I'll hold them as long as I can. Move it! Come on, this isn't a conversation.
    What a wonderful world you live in. -
    Yeah, well, the rent is cheap, the pay is decent and I get to make my own hours.

      "Can anyone help us? This is commander Susan Ivanova of Babylon 5. To any ships in grid epsilon. We are under attack. I repeat, we are under attack. The captain is dead, defense grid is down, they are boarding us, they are coming in all over the place. We've tried to evacuate as many as we can, and Garibaldi has rigged the fusion reactor, but.. my god, here they come. Switch to external cameras. They've got weapons lock. Here comes. Here comes. Aah!"

        "Personal Log, Michael Garibaldi. It's started. They are really doing it. This is what I was afraid would happen. But it has been coming for a long time . . . ever since Sheridan got back."

          "I think I'll go stick my head in the station's fusion reactor. It would be quicker, and I suspect that after a while I might even come to enjoy it."

            "Among my people this is how we celebrate state funerals. Our marriage ceremonies are solemn, sober, moments of reflection, also regret, disagreement, argument and mutual recrimination. Once you know it can't get any worse you can relax and enjoy the marriage. But to start with something like this.. No, it is a very bad sign for the future."

              I'm here to sign a non-aggression treaty with the Centauri. Before I leave here, there will be an Earth-Centauri alliance that will guarantee peace for Earth. We will, at last, know peace in our time.

                "We gave you a promise. And we are bound by that promise. And damn you for asking for it, and damn me for agreeing to it, and damn all of us to hell because that is exactly where we are going! We talked about peace, you didn't want peace, we talked about cooperation, you didn't want cooperation. You want war. Is that it? You want a war? You've got a war."

                  "It is said that the future is always born in pain. The history of war is the history of pain. If we are wise, what is born of that pain, matures into the promise of a better world. Because we learn that we can no longer afford the mistakes of the past."
