Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Watch Marcus' mouth when he's talking to Ivanova just before Delenn leaves the bridge of the White Star. When Ivanova asks how the repairs are going, Marcus tells her that it's going slowly. However, when she says she'll try to adjust the power from C&C, Marcus' mouth doesn't move when he says "Great idea, if you can get there."

    • This episode is the flip-side of the first season episode "Babylon Squared". They fit together with two exceptions - Delenn's clothes are noticably different, and because there wasn't enough time to show Zathras being captured the way Major Krantz described it in "Babylon Squared", he is instead picked up by a security patrol in this episode.

    • Revealing Mistakes: In the beginning one of the guards in Babylon 4 is falling down before Ivanova hits him.

    • Continuity: In "Babylon Squared", Delenn touches Sinclair after he tried to warn Garibaldi about his future. In "War Without End (2)," she does not touch him.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Zathras: No one ever listens to Zathras. Quite mad, they say. It is good that Zathras does not mind. He's even grown to like it. Oh yes.

    • Ivanova: C'mon c'mon, grab what you need. We're running out of time.
      Zathras: Cannot run out of time. There is infinite time. You are finite. Zathras is finite. (picking up tool) This is wrong tool. (continuing to rummage) No. Not good. No. Never use this.

    • Zathras: All Minbari belief is around three. Three castes: worker, warrior, religious. Three languages: light, dark, grey. The Nine of the Grey Council: three times three. All is three, as you are three as you are one, as you are "the one." (talking to Sinclair) You are the one who was. (talking to Delenn) You are the one who is. (talking to Sheridan) You are the one who will be. (to Sinclair) You are the beginning of the story (to Delenn) and the middle of the story (to Sheridan) and the end of the story, that creates the next great story. In your heart, you know what Zathras says is true.
