  • QUOTES (8)

    • Avon: She won. We … I let her take the Liberator.
      Tarrant: No. No she didn't win. We all came out losers.

    • Avon: Death is something that [Blake] and I faced together on a number of occasions. I always thought that his death and mine would be linked in some way.

    • Zen: I … I have failed you.
      Vila: He never referred to himself before. He never once used the word "I".
      Zen: I have failed you. I am sorry. I … have …
      Vila: He's dying. Zen is dying.

    • Avon: One last thing: I don't need any of you. I needed the Liberator to bring me here so I had no choice but to bring you along but this is as far as you go. I don't want you with me. I don't want you following me. Understand this: anyone who does follow me, I'll kill them.

    • Tarrant: That is it, Avon, I've had it. Either you tell us what it's all about or we're going to stop it.
      Avon: No, you're not. Nothing and nobody is going to stop it, you least of all. (Pulls a gun) Now get out of my way and stay out of my way.

    • Vila: Avon isn't going to like this.
      Dayna: Avon isn't going to know about it.
      Vila: I wouldn't like to bet my life on that. What are you going to do if he spots you?
      Tarrant: Duck.

    • Servalan: (to Avon) You saw nothing. Heard nothing. It was an illusion, a drug-induced and electronic dream. We spent months preparing it. We recreated Blake inside our computers, voice, images, memories, a million fragmented facts. When I was ready, I started sending you the messages, seeding the idea in your mind. I was conditioning you. And you were my greatest ally, Avon. You made it easy because you wanted to believe it. You wanted to believe that Blake was still alive.

    • Tarrant: Oh, come on, Avon. Look, we've been through a lot together. We've always been at risk; we've always taken chances. But we've survived because we worked as a team. So what is it you have to do that makes this so different?
      Avon: This happens to be my problem. None of you are involved.
      Dayna: But we are involved. However much you like to pretend you're a loner, you're not really. We depend on each other. I wouldn't be alive now if it wasn't for you, and I'm sure that's true of everybody else. So why not trust us?
      Vila: Look, you don't have to give reasons. You don't even have to explain. Whatever it is, we'll back you up.
      Cally: Or, if you want one of your own cold, rational explanations, we can't afford to lose you.
      Avon: Sentiment breeds weakness. Let it get a hold of you and you are dead.
