"So you think there are only two sides to any argument.”
"In this case? Yeah. Now there have been a lot of rumours about you since you got on board this station Captain maybe everybody is afraid to ask, I don’t have that problem. You see, I don’t work for you. I answer only to Sheridan, so I wanna know, just for me, which side were you on?”
"Okay. You’re right. I wasn’t on your side.
I was on the side that says ‘it’s not the role of the military to set policy, depose presidents or fire on our own ships’. We follow orders until one comes along that violates our conscience. Then we have to decide whether or not to follow it, and take the consequences. Maybe you’ll be proven right, maybe they’ll stick you in front of a firing squad, but your decision affects only you. You can take a stand without destroying the chain of command.”
"And did you? Did you ‘take a stand’?"
"Well now that’s none of your concern, Mr. Garibaldi.
You asked me, if I took up arms against my own government; the answer is no.
My job is to protect the men and women who serve under my command, and I will perform that job with every last breath I’ve got, cause I owe them nothing less.”
"And to hell with the rest of the world(!)"
"Well now there you have me at a disadvantage, Mr. Garibaldi. You see, I don’t know what’s best for the whole world. I don’t understand the ethical structure of the universe, and I sure as hell don’t think it’s my place to tear up the constitution I swore an oath to protect.
I am a soldier, Mr. Garibaldi, and as such my vocabulary is rather limited. I only really understand three words; Loyalty, Duty, Honour.
If I did it your way one of those would have to go, then the other two would become meaningless. Just like this conversation.”
Via FuckYeah Babylon 5

Basically the most horrifyingly weird realization of my day: Mary I of England (AKA Bloody Mary) looks scarily like Lennier from Babylon 5, at least in certain paintings of her. I see it largely around the eyebrows and eyes.
This made me realize some strange similarities between them and also between some of the Minbari arcs in the show and Mary’s rule, which is terrifying in and of itself.
Just…throwin’ this out there….
