Soolin: "Vila doesn't have much time for Tarrant."
Kerr Avon: "Well, Tarrant is brave, young, handsome; three reasons 'not' to like him."
Kerr Avon: "One of the almost human things about Orac is that it does not like to work."
Dayna Mellanby: "Beneath that cold exterior beats a heart of pure stone."
Vila Restal: "This is stupid, Avon!"
Kerr Avon: "When did that ever stop us?"
Servalan: "I'm just the girl next door."
Del Tarrant: "If you were the girl next door, I'd move."
Servalan: "Where would you move, Tarrant?"
Del Tarrant: "Next door."
Kerr Avon: "No good deed goes unpunished."
Kerr Avon: "I am not expendable, I'm not stupid and I'm not going."
Kerr Avon: "If you didn't want the answer, you shouldn't have asked the question."
Vila Restal: "Don't leave me here! At least leave me a torch. I don't like the dark. I like to see what I'm scared of."
Vila Restal: "I hate personal violence, especially when I'm the person."
Vila Restal: "I plan to live forever - or die trying."
Vila Restal: "Why do I get all the dirty jobs?"
Vila Restal: "I've got this shocking pain right behind the eyes."
Kerr Avon: "Have you considered amputation?"
Jenna Stannis: "What would you know about guilt?"
Kerr Avon: "Only what I've read."
Dayna Mellenby: "Don't you ever get bored with being right?"
Kerr Avon: "Just with the rest of you being wrong."
Vila Restal: "Where did you come from?"
Kerril: "Here and there. Mostly there."
[after wacthing a tape of three Federation ships exploding]
Kerr Avon: "Well, Orac, what do you think?"
Orac: "I think you have brought back a most fascinating recording."
Kerr Avon: "We are looking for conclusions, not critical acclaim."
[under heavy Federation attack]
Roj Blake: "Hang on everyone, this is going to be rough!"
Vila Restal: "I don't mind rough. It's fatal I'm not keen on!"
Olag Gan: "You're never involved, are you Avon? Have you ever cared for anyone?"
Vila Restal: "Except yourself!"
Kerr Avon: "I have never understood why it should be necessary to become irrational in order to prove that you care. Or indeed why it should be necessary to prove it - 'at all'."
Vila Restal: "Was that an insult, or did I just miss something?"
Cally: "You missed something!"
Vila Restal: "I think I just made the biggest mistake of my life."
Orac: "It is unlikely. I would predict there are far greater mistakes waiting to be made by someone with your obvious talent for it."
Vila Restal: "What did I do to deserve this?"
Kerr Avon: "How long a list would you like?"
Dayna Mellanby: "Do we fight?"
Kerr Avon: "Certainly not. We run."
Shrinker: "Why should I trust you?"
Kerr Avon: "Because I've got the gun!"
Vila Restal: "Surely you're not going to shoot an unarmned prisoner?"
Soolin: "Since when did you get religion?"
[trooper Par is discussing his service under Commander Travis]
Thania: "You served a full tour with Space Commander Travis, didn't you?"
Par: "Five years. He was hard."
Thania: "But fair?"
Par: "No. Not often, anyway. But you could always rely on him not to get you killed unnecessarily. He never wasted troopers."
Thania: "Oh, that's something, I suppose."
Par: "Major, when you're up to your neck in slime and lasers, that's everything."
