Citizen G'Kar: No dictator, no invader can hold an imprisoned population by force of arms forever. There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom. Against that power tyrants and dictators cannot stand. The Centauri learned that lesson once. We will teach it to them again. Though it take a thousand years, we will be free.
Delenn: Abso-fragging-lutely, damn it. - Since our last discussion I have been studying your use of language. Do you approve?
Londo Mollari: [after having stripped G'Kar of his post as Ambassador to Babylon 5] Citizen G'Kar will return to Narn for trial.
Capt. John Sheridan: I'm afraid that's not possible. Before this meeting was called Ambassador G'Kar came to my office and requested sanctuary. Now as it is within my right to do so I granted that request.
Londo Mollari: Surrender by all members of the Kha'Ri is stipulated in the Narn/Centauri agreement.
Capt. John Sheridan: Well I'm sure it is but I didn't sign that agreement, Ambassador. Neither did Earth!
Delenn: As co-sponsor of Bablyon 5 the Minbari Government supports this decision. The neutrality of this station applies even to the wishes of the Centauri. Citizen G'Kar may remain here for as long as he chooses.
Londo Mollari: Refa, any force attempting to invade Narn would be up to its neck in blood--its own!
Lord Refa: We have no intention of invading Narn. Flattening it, yes--but invading it? We will be using mass drivers. By the time we are done their cities will be in ruins, we can move in at our leisure!
Londo Mollari: Mass drivers? They have been outlawed by every civilized planet!
Lord Refa: These are uncivilized times.
Londo Mollari: We have treaties!
Lord Refa: Ink on a page!
Lord Refa: Londo, good to see you again.
Londo Mollari: And you, Refa, you look well.
Lord Refa: Exciting times, Mollari. They fire the blood and the mind.
Lord Refa: [to guard] Leave us.
Londo Mollari: Refa, the emperor?
Lord Refa: Is out among his people, basking in their almost-sincere adulation. He has left things here in the hands of his court, which can function just as well without him as with him. Sometimes better.
Capt. John Sheridan: For the last year, things haven't exactly been going our way. I started to wonder if it would ever get better. I think it just did. - Tell the other Rangers, the ambassadors, everyone in this "army of light" that Babylon 5 stands with you. Tell them- Tell them that from this place, we will deliver notice to the parliaments of conquerors that a line has been drawn against the darkness, and we will hold that line, no matter the cost.
Capt. John Sheridan: Any news?
Cmdr. Susan Ivanova: Just rumors. They say the Centauri are using mass drivers. I can't believe they'd resort to planetary bombardment!
Capt. John Sheridan: Right now I'd believe just about anything.
Delenn: Draal. We're here.
Draal: [holographic projection appearing] Did you think I did not notice, my old friend?
[Draal notices Delenn's hair]
Draal: You've changed. I like it. Captain Sheridan. At first, I wasn't sure about you. But I must say your decisions have been wise. Your attitudes, commendable. And your patience, vaster than mine would have been under similar circumstances.
Capt. John Sheridan: Thank you.
Draal: I'm not finished.
Capt. John Sheridan: Oh, Sorry.
