The Babylon Quotes Project

From Babylon 5 "Points of Departure" written by J. Michael Straczynski
  • "I can only conclude that I am paying off karma at a vastly accelerated rate."
  • "The Babylon Project was our last, best hope for peace. A self-contained world five miles long, located in neutral territory. A place of commerce and diplomacy for a quarter of a million humans and aliens. A shining beacon in space, all alone in the night. It was the dawn of the third age of mankind, the year the great war came upon us all. This is the story of the last of the Babylon stations. The year is 2259. The name of the place is Babylon 5."
  • "Well then I'll say a prayer for him tonight." "He's agnostic." "Then I'll say half a prayer."
  • "... he looked at me and said, 'Do you understand?' I said no, I didn't. 'Good beginning,' he said. 'You'll be even better when you begin to understand what you do not understand.'"
  • "If you are going to kill me, then do so. Otherwise, I have considerable work to do."
