Synopsis: Sheridan is worried when efforts to contact his father prove fruitless, and fears that Clark may have done something to him. An ISN reporter tries to sneak a crew and equipment onboard the station. When confronted, they admit that they are on B5 to get the story about what it’s like to live on the station while it’s under quarantine. However, when the finished story airs on ISN the interviews are twisted so that it appears Babylon 5 is hostile toward Earthgov and submissive to the will of aliens. Garibaldi makes an attempt at an alternate occupation, finding lost items for people.

Notable Quotes

ISN Reporter: Hey, that’s private property. We’ve got rights here.
Zack: What your gonna have is my foot 16 inches up your butt, if you don’t get the hell out of my way.

Londo: When I said my quarters were cold, I did not mean, oh I think it is a little chilly in here. Perhaps, I’ll throw a blank on the bed. No, I said it was cold! As in, oh look my left arm has snapped off, like an ice sickle and shattered on the floor. This is highly inappropriate Captain.
Sheridan: You’re right. There are several other parts of your body, I would much rather see snap off.
Londo: I see, well your sense of humor is very funny.

Delenn: But the heart does not recognize boundaries on a map, or wars, or political policies. The heart does as the heart does.

Garibaldi: Maybe just once in my life, somebody would sit in that chair and not assume that I’m an idiot.

Sheridan: We have an open door policy.
Ivanova: And an open air lock policy.

Sheridan: Commander. Did you threaten to grab a hold of this man by the collar and throw him out an airlock.
Ivanova: Yes, I did.
Sheridan: I am shocked. Shocked and dismayed. I remind you that we’re short on supplies here. We can’t afford to take perfectly good clothing and throw it out in the space. Always take off the jacket off first. I told you that before. Sorry, she meant to say stripped naked and thrown out an airlock. I apologize for any confusing this might have caused.
