  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (3)

    • (as the Shadow attack fleet comes out of hyperspace) Ivanova: That's a LOT of ships. Marcus: That's a bloody awful lot of ships. Ivanova: Jump engines back online yet? Marcus: No. If I signal the fleet, this lot might pick it up. If they do and we can't get away... Ivanova: Well, who wants to live forever? Marcus: I do, actually! But what the hell... (touches the comm. panel) Signal away.

    • Franklin: I can't go back, but I can appreciate what I have right now, and I can define myself by what I am, instead of what I'm not. Sheridan: And what are you? Franklin: Alive. Everything else is negotiable.

    • Garibaldi: I just hope you found what you were looking for out there. Franklin: I don't know, guess I found what I -- what I needed not what I wanted. Garibaldi: Which was? Franklin: A short sharp kick to the head. Garibaldi: Oh well, hell I could've done that for you. All you had to do was ask. Franklin: Yeah, well you would've enjoyed it too much.
