    • Dylan: (getting a Comm on Andromeda) Hunt here.
      Virgil Vox: Captain Hunt.
      Dylan: 'Captain Hunt?' Haven't heard that in a long time.
      Virgil Vox: What's time in a place like this? Or rank?
      Dylan: Hey, you're the one that called me 'Captain'. So where are you, Virgil?
      Virgil Vox: Here, there, everywhere. Nowhere, my man.
      Dylan: Do you ever not talk in puzzles?
      Vigil Vox: Not yet.
      Dylan: Well then puzzle me this? Why Beka? Why all of us here together but apart? (no response) Hmmph... so now I get the silent treatment. Look, you're the one that contacted me so what can I do for you? (still no response and he sighs) I'm going to bed.
      Virgil Vox: Sleep tight.
      Dylan: How about something smooth to take me there? (he walks off Command)
      Virgil Vox: Already done. Virgil Vox back on your box. This ray of sunshine goes out to all of us who are castaway, like the late great crew of Andromeda Ascendant.

    • (Dylan & Rhade are monitoring Beka from the Maru) Rhade: She hasn't moved for some time. Dylan: She could be sleeping. (Rhade gives him a skeptical look) It is that time. Rhade: Or she could be dying. (long pause) Dylan: Let's go see if she's...sleeping. Rhade: Sleeping. (scoffs)

    • (while looking for Beka inside Boyagen's Remembrance Wall)
      Rhade: Now what?
      Dylan: I don't know, but she's close by. (leans on the wall behind him and falls through it) Whoa!
      Rhade: How the hell does he do that?

    • (to Avineri after he dies) Beka: I came here for a prize...(sniffles)...and I found...(sings)...two suns shining in the sky, looking down on you and I. Like the suns I'll always be, here for you and you...(sniffles).

    • (Andromeda in Command) Trance: It all will be revealed if we are patient. Rhade: I'm not good at patience anymore. Beka: Me neither.

Also, "Mrs. Malaprop" was character noted for her misuse of words in R. B. Sheridan's comedy The Rivals.
