* MundaneWish: When Londo tells Luc he may give any one order he pleases with the authority of the Emperor and asks him [[ArcWords "What do you want?"]], Luc asks Londo to tell him a story. Londo ruefully notes that Luc's answer to that question was much better than [[Recap/BabylonFiveS01E13SignsAndPortents his]].

** Not only in the novelization, but in the movie itself. When Delenn was telling Lennon about the upcoming meeting with parties from Earth who're interested in peace, she tells him that Minbari Intelligence had determined that the Narns were selling Centauri weapons to the humans, and they use the Narns in order to help put together the peace talks (it doesn't end well).

-->The humans, I think, ''knew'' they were doomed. But where another race would surrender to despair, the humans fought back with even greater strength. They made the Minbari fight for every ''inch'' of space. In all my life, I have never seen anything like it; they would ''weep'', they would ''pray,'' they would say goodbye to their loved ones... and then throw themselves, without fear or hesitation, at the very face of death itself. Never surrendering.
-->No one who saw them fighting against the inevitable could help but be moved to tears by their courage... their stubborn nobility. When they ran out of ships, they used guns. When they ran out of ''guns'', they used... knives, and sticks, and bare hands. They were... ''magnificent''.
-->I only hope that when it is my time that I may die with ''half'' as much dignity as I saw in their eyes in the end. They did this for '''''two years'''''. They never ran out of courage... but in the end, they ran out of ''time''.

Around Earth, a massive fleet assembles to hold the Minbari off, but they jump right into it, and begin decimating the Earth ships. In one fighter, Alpha Leader, Jeffrey Sinclair, is damaged and attempts to ram a Minbari cruiser. Delenn, observing the battle, suggests taking a prisoner to interrogate about Earth Forces on the ground if that is to be the next phase. The others agree and she turns around, seeing Sinclair's fighter, and remembers the Vorlons' advice. "That one."
