Security Guard #1
While uncredited for his work in this episode, Ed Wasser provided the voice of Mr. Morden as he conspired with then-Vice President Clark to assassinate President Santiago.
As of this episode, the ending credits use the same music as used in the opening.
Continuity: When the Draal image is talking to Ivanova about her using the machine, they are both standing right in front of it. The image disappears and Draal removes himself from the machine without even a long enough pause to stop talking. But Ivanova then comes walking up from well offscreen as though she magically moved across the room.
Draal: I have checked the data records of the great machine running the planet below. It contains information which might help in your search. Reports of encounters with alien forces beyond description, stories of vast and nameless forces that prowl the ruins of ancient cities. Each report carried with it a warning: do not approach. To quote a human phrase, it gives me the screaming willies.
Draal: (stepping out of Great Machine) Hmm, I must remember to dust myself once and awhile.
Zack: Women like a guy who looks trim, neat. You gotta be sharp. I look like I'm wearing a circus tent. Any minute now, a little teeny car with sixteen clowns in it is coming flying out of my butt.
(Garibaldi's communicator beeps)
Garibaldi: Garibaldi's fashion express, go.
G'Kar: I told you I could help. The Book of G'Quan. Read it. We'll talk afterwards.
Garibaldi: I don't read Narn.
Walkers of Sigma 957: When it is time? Come to this place. Call our name. We will be here.
Ivanova: This is the White Star to departing ship. I just want to say I appreciate your response, and I fully understand. The Vorlons said that you wouldn't be up for a fight like this. In fact, they said in the last war... they carried you, did most of the work, while you took most of the credit for it. They said that if you got involved in this one, you'd just get hurt. Come to think of it, we've got the Vorlons. We don't need much more help. Do we? I mean, the Vorlons are really pretty close to perfect.
Ivanova: Zog? What do you mean zog? Zog what? Zog yes, zog no?
Marcus: It's leaving. My guess is zog means no.
Ivanova: Like hell. I am not letting them leave here without saying yes.
Marcus: Really? And how do you propose stopping them? Perhaps a big red and white sign with the word 'Stop' on it? I'll put a bucket on my head and pretend to be the ancient Vorlon god Booji.
Ivanova: That's it!
Marcus: Fine, I'll get a bucket.
Marcus: The Minbari taught me: 'Claim victory in your heart and the Universe will follow.'
Ivanova: Fine, great. Claim victory in your heart and up your ...
Marcus: I think you just hit a nerve. The Vorlons must owe them money or something.
Ivanova: At least it tells us that they understand our language. They're just not willing to speak to us in it.
Marcus: Who knew they were French? Sorry.
Julie Musante: With our basic freedoms at stake, no response can be too extreme. There maybe some minor and temporary abridgments in the traditionally protected areas, of speech and association, but only until this crisis is over.
(after having popped in holographically on Sheridan with a beautiful nude woman attempting to seduce him)
Sheridan: I can't leave without an explanation. She'll be all over me.
Ivanova: Looks to me she's already all over you.
Draal: All life forms are connected. Look for the path. Look for the path.
Draal: Well, here we are. If you just plug yourself in to the matrix, we'll take it from there.
Ivanova: Ahm, it's ... ahm ... occupied.
Draal: Oh, yes, of course, my mistake. I spend so much time out of my body, I sometimes forget where it is. If you'll excuse me.
Julie Musante: I'm here to protect you.
Julie Musante: It's the same.
Julie Musante: Yes, there is some, but it's all caused by the mentally unstable. And we've just instituted correctional centers to filter them out at an early age.
Julie Musante: No, we are just one happy planet.
Julie Musante: Earth doesn't have homeless.
Sheridan: Excuse me?
Julie Musante: We don't have the problem. Yes, there are some displaced people, here and there, but they've chosen to be in their position. They're either lazy or they're criminal or they're mentally unstable.
Sheridan: They can't get a job.
Julie Musante: Earth-gov has promised a job to everyone that wants one. So, if someone doesn't have a job, they must not want one.
Draal: I asked for Captain Sheridan.
Ivanova: He's busy.
Draal: I don't like surprises.
Ivanova: Really? I love them myself. I mean, to me everything is a surprise. You're a surprise, this place is a surprise. You see this? Paper-cut, hurts like hell. Anybody else would be upset, but to me it's just one more wonderful surprise. I mean, I even surprise myself sometimes. Now, I guess there's nothing wrong me surprising you? Right?
Draal: Hahhahaha. I like you. You're trouble.
Ivanova: Well, thank you. It's the nicest thing anybody has said about me in days.
Draal: Delenn tells me that you are going to try contacting the First Ones. It is a magnificent idea. A daring, and splendid idea. In doing so you will see things no human has seen before. It will be fun. Assuming you are not vaporised, dissected, or otherwise killed in an assortment of supremely horrible and painful ways. Exciting, isn't it?
Delenn: According to legend, some went to sleep in secret places, deep beneath their ancient cities, where no one can bother them. The rest walk among the stars, on errands we can never hope to understand, barely aware of our existence.
Delenn: Wars are won or lost before they are fought. The preparation, attitude, strategy, and the selection of proper allies. In the growing war against the Shadows, maybe there are some allies we have not approached yet. Many times over the last million years the Shadows were fought to a stand-still by the First Ones, races immeasurable older than our own. After the last war, a thousand years ago, we believed the first ones went away forever, passing beyond the galactic rim, where no Human or Minbari has ever ventured. But the Vorlons remained, it is possible that some of the others may still be around.
Ivanova: Anything else you need.
Sheridan: Glass of whiskey, a gun, and two bullets.
Ivanova: Good Luck Captain, I think you are about to go where everyone has gone before.
The skeletal spines that stick out of the First Ones ship are modeled after a human foot bone arranged in rows. The ship was nicknamed "the foot bone ship" by the special effects team.
The character of Julie Musante was named after two fans, Julie Helmer and Mark Musante.
The First Ones of Sigma 957 were seen originally in the first season episode "Mind War."
Julie Musante: (Minipax) rewrote the dictionary.
This is another allusion to George Orwell's 1984. In this book the ministry of truth (minitrue) controlled the media and made a new language, "newspeak."
Ivanova: Good luck, Captain. I think you are about to go where everyone has gone before.
This quote by Commander Ivanova is a reference to the opening monologue of Star Trek "... to boldly go where no man has gone before."
