"Yes, but this is different. I can feel it.
Whatever's happened to you, you have a moral obligation to share it with the Corps, Lyta.
The Corps is Mother, the Corps is Father."

"Good ol' Psi Corps. You guys never cease to amaze me! All the moral
fiber of Jack the Ripper. What do you do in your spare time? Juggle

"Good luck to you in your holy cause, Captain Sheridan. May your choices have better results than mine. Remembered, not as a messenger, remembered not as a reformer, not as a prophet, not as a hero, not even as Sebastian. Remembered only .. as Jack."

Many have said it before, but it can't be said to enough, war is hell. "
