  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Franklin: What if there is no God at all?
      Sinclair: Is that what you believe?
      Franklin: I believe in saving lives. Without life the question is meaningless.
      Sinclair: But life has to be more then a pulse beat. What we hold sacred gives our life meaning.

    • Garibaldi: What happened out there?
      Ivanova: Nothing.
      Garibaldi: Nothing? I just got back the repair-order on your fighter. It will be in the shop for a week, minimum. And on top of that, I hear you broke regs about leaving formation and engaging on combat without backup.
      Ivanova:It was an educated risk... sometimes it works out.
      Garibaldi: And sometimes it doesn't. It's a long story. Come on, I'll fill you in.

    • Sinclair: Sometimes doing the right thing doesn't change anything. It can drive you crazy.
      Franklin: It's all words. Just words.

    • M'ola: We are only trying to save our child.
      Delenn. That is also what doctor Franklin believes he's doing. Whose belief is correct? And how do we prove it?

    • Dr. Franklin: One way or another, I'm gonna save that boy's life. Whatever it costs.

    • M'ola: (About her son's surgery) You don't understand. Food animals are cut open. They don't have a soul, so it's all right. But Chosen of God may not be punctured.

    • Garibaldi: "Sure" is for people with nothing on the line. You and me, we just get on with it.

    • Sinclair: What makes a religion false? If any religion is right, then maybe they all have to be right. Maybe God doesn't care how you say your prayers, just as long as you say them.

    • Ivanova: (bored) I think I'll just walk to and fro for a while, maybe over to my console. After that, maybe I'll try pacing fro and to, you know, just for the kick of it.

    • Londo: How much justice can you afford?

    • Franklin: I'm waiting. For an apology.
      Sinclair: You better check the temperature in Hell first.

    • Sinclair: A Globitt-egg?
      Shon: Actually it's only a piece of... industrial goo. But please don't tell Dr. Franklin I said so. He still believes it's an egg.

    • Kosh: The avalanche has already started. It is too late for the pebbles to vote.

    • Sinclair: Who asked you to play God?!
      Franklin: Every damn patient who comes through that door! That's who! People come to doctors because they want us to be gods! They want us to make it better or make it not so! They want to be healed, and they come to me when their prayers aren't enough! Well, if I have to take the responsibility, then I claim the authority too. I did good. And we both know it. And no-one is going to take that away.

  • Notes

    • The mention of Pfingle Eggs is an in-joke by episode writer David Gerrold to his War Against the Chtorr series of novels.
