    • G'Kar: (to Marcus) I will vouch for his character! I saw the entire thing... because I was there. I was in it. I was... and they made a very agreeable thump. Or did I mention that?

    • G'Kar: By G'Quan, I can't recall the last time I was in a fight like that. No moral ambiguity, no ... hopeless battle against ancient and overwhelming forces. They were the bad guys, as you say, we were the good guys. And they made a very satisfying thump when they hit the floor." Arthur: It's wrong for the strong to prey on the weak. That idea was the very heart of the Round Table. To correct injustice, to promote a society of laws, not arms. G'Kar: Well said! Arthur: That is the purpose which God and the Crown have set before me. I can not achieve that locked away in some room. G'Kar: No, of course not! What room? Arthur: I sense in you a warrior born.

    • Garibaldi: What do you mean, a hundred credits? Mailman: I mean, more than ninety nine, less than a hundred and one. What, you got a hearing problem, or a math problem? Look, I can't get into conceptual arguments with you, I've got people waiting. Garibaldi: That's three times the delivery charge for package this size.

If I've got to use trapdoors, alien transports and back channels to get the mail in and out of here, then that's what I'll do, because that's my job. Neither rain, nor snow, nor meteors, nor alien invasion nor .. Garibaldi: Look, this is extortion. Mailman: It's business. You see, when my costs go up, I have to pass that along to the consumer. That's... that's you. Just in case that's another one of those concepts you got a problem with.

    • Garibaldi: What are you so nervous about? We went up against entire Earth Alliance and two carrier groups! Security Officer: Yeah, but - this is the Post Office! This could get us in real trouble.

    • Marcus: (referring to Kosh) Next thing you'll be saying is he's NOT Merlin. Merlin was a great teacher you know. Franklin: I am not hearing this. Marcus: They say he aged backward. That was how he was able to foretell the future, by remembering it. Which means he came from the future. Maybe he had Arthur form the round table by remembering us. We're forming one of our own after all. Which makes you Percival. I'm Galahad, him being sinless and all. Sheridan as Arthur. Ivanova perhaps Gawain. I think we both know who Mordred is. So the question is: Who is Morgan Le Fay?
