Kosh Naranek: The avalanche has already started; it is too late for the pebbles to vote.
Dr. Stephen Franklin: Sometimes you have to heal the family before you can heal the patient.
Sinclair: Sometimes doing the right thing doesn't change anything.
Sinclair: Who asked you to play God?
Dr. Stephen 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.
Dr. Stephen Franklin: Maybe we'd all be better off if there was no God. If God had never been invented.
Dr. Stephen Franklin: I'm waiting. For an apology.
Sinclair: You better check the temperature in Hell first.
Shon: Am I going to die?
M'Ola: If it is written in the streams of time, Shon, it will be so.
Dr. Stephen Franklin: I'll tell you what is written in the streams of time. Very soon you will breathe much easier. And then you will grow up to be strong and wise, and bring much honor to your mother and your father.
M'Ola: Please don't speak that way. No one knows what is written in the stream until the waters surround him.
Dr. Stephen Franklin: I am never wrong about these things.
Dr. Stephen Franklin: May God save us from false religion.
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.
Dr. Stephen Franklin: What if there's no God at all?
Maya Hernandez: Sinclair will have you thrown off the station.
Dr. Stephen Franklin: I'm already packed.
Dr. Stephen Franklin: Oh, Lord, preserve this child.
Maya Hernandez: Say again?
Dr. Stephen Franklin: Nothing. - It was a prayer for his spirit.
Michael Garibaldi: What happened out there?
Lt. Cmdr. Susan Ivanova: Nothing.
Michael Garibaldi: Nothing? I just got back the repair order on your fighter. It'll be in the shop for a week, minimum. And on top of that I hear you broke regs about leaving formation and engaging in combat without backup.
Lt. Cmdr. Susan Ivanova: It was an educated risk. - Sometimes it works out.
Michael Garibaldi: And sometimes it doesn't. It's a long story. Come on, I'll fill you in.
