Capt. Susan Ivanova: [Sitting on the floor in Medlab, rocking herself back and forth, crying silently and staring at Marcus's body] I said go away!
Dr. Stephen Franklin: Susan it's me. You okay?
Capt. Susan Ivanova: Damnit Stephen, why the hell did he do it?I didn't want him to, I never, *never* would have asked him to!
Dr. Stephen Franklin: I know.
[he sits down next to her]
Dr. Stephen Franklin: I know.
Capt. Susan Ivanova: And how the hell did he find out about that machine?
Dr. Stephen Franklin: Look, after we gained control of the Alien Healing Device, Sheridan and I decided it was too dangerous to let others know about it, so I coded all my log entries. He must've hacked his way through half a dozen security overrides.
Capt. Susan Ivanova: It's typical, he was always pulling crap that like, even I never knew what the hell to do with him. He was the most undisciplined, the most annoying...
[glances back at his body]
Capt. Susan Ivanova: I was just lying there and I was feeling myself letting go of my body. And I remember the last thing I thought was, 'I'm gonna die now'... and it wasn't so bad. And then I heard this voice coming from far away saying 'I love you.' And I thought 'Is this God? Is this God?' I mean, he really did have an English accent just like in all those old movies. And then I felt myself being pulled down, and I got heavy, so heavy, you know, tired, and it was... I forced my eyes open, and there he was next to me. And we were hooked into that damn machine, and I tried to pull it apart, Stephen, I swear to God I tried. I just-I couldn't even move, I couldn't move!
[breaks down sobbing]
Dr. Stephen Franklin: Look, there was nothing that you could have done, all right? Your system was traumatized. You can't blame yourself.
Capt. Susan Ivanova: I don't, I don't, I don't. I just-you know, all my life I've had problems with relationships. You may have noticed.
Dr. Stephen Franklin: A little.
Capt. Susan Ivanova: You know, the ones I loved always ended up hurting me or leaving me. And the ones who stayed, they had nothing inside. No depth. After awhile I just decided to forget about it. And then, here was Marcus. I knew he'd never hurt me... and I knew that he'd never leave me... and I knew that he loved me. I knew it. I just didn't want to admit it. And he gave so much, and he wanted so little in return. He just wanted a kind word, or a smile and all I ever gave him in two years was grief! It's because I think I saw what I wanted. And I was afraid.
Dr. Stephen Franklin: I thought you knew it wasn't going to work out. You were just protecting yourself from being hurt again, that's all.
Capt. Susan Ivanova: Maybe, but maybe I should've tried just one more time. I could've done that for him. Now I can't. At least I should have just boffed him once.
Dr. Stephen Franklin: 'Boffed'? Did you just say 'boffed'?
Capt. Susan Ivanova: [managing a weak smile through her tears] It's the type of thing he would've said. I mean hell, it's not like I was doing anything else.
Dr. Stephen Franklin: Well I guess that's one way to deal with unrequited love, huh?
Capt. Susan Ivanova: All love is unrequited, Stephen. All of it.
[She leans towards Stephen and he gathers her in his arms, both of them now crying softly]
Delenn: It was the end of the Earth year 2261, and it was the dawn of a new age, for all of us. It was the end of one chapter and the beginning of another. The next twenty years would see great changes, great joy, and great sorrow. The Telepath War, and the Drakh War. The new Alliance would waver, and crack, but in the end, it would hold. Because what is built endures, and what is loved endures. And Babylon 5 - Babylon 5 endures.
Delenn: [about Marcus] He followed the path of his heart. How many can say that?
Ambassador Londo Mollari: ...they are quite a couple, aren't they?
Citizen G'Kar: Yes, they are.
Ambassador Londo Mollari: [chuckles] Almost makes you wish that you could peek in on them, see how it's going. - G'Kar, where is the eye that Dr. Franklin gave you?
President Susanna Luchenko: [to Sheridan after his forces free Earth] Half of Earth force wants to give you a kiss on the cheek and the Medal of Honor. The other half wants you taken out and shot. As a politician you learn how to compromise - which by all rights means I should give you the Medal of Honor then have you shot.
[Returning from the wedding of Sheriden & Delenn]
Ambassador Londo Mollari: Stop eating that! You don't even know what it is.
Citizen G'Kar: Something called..."rice."
Ambassador Londo Mollari: Yes. And if it was any good, do you think they would have been standing there, throwing it at people?
Jane: We can confim now that President Clark took his own life at 2:53 a.m. EST rather than face trial for his actions. The body has been left in place for examination and documentation by the Justice Department. After the battle Sheridan surrendered to Earthforce authorities who will now decide whether or not charges will be pressed for his actions...
[watching the ISN report on the new Interstellar Alliance]
Ambassador Londo Mollari: So, how does it feel to make history, hmm?
Citizen G'Kar: You do not make history. You can only hope to survive it.
Ambassador Londo Mollari: [noticing something is different about G'Kar] G'Kar... the artificial eye that Dr. Franklin gave you... where is it?
Citizen G'Kar: [Grins mischievously as we see Sheridan and Delenn in bed, newly-married and blissfully unaware that G'Kar's prosthetic eye has been strategically positioned on a piece of furniture in their bedroom!]
