Hal: She has a genius with weaponry systems. And that's not just a father's pride talking.
Avon: And yet, with all this to choose from, she still goes around with a bow and arrows.
Hal: She takes absurd risks. I try to discourage her but I think she's trying to prove to herself that there's no weapon, ancient or modern, she cannot master.
Hal Mellanby: You're not alone in losing your ship. The losses on both sides have been tremendous. I've been monitoring the status transmissions.
Kerr Avon: Did we win?
Hal: Sounds very confused, but there's not much doubt. The aliens were virtually wiped out.
Avon: Well the price was high enough. But at least we got what we paid for.
Hal: You almost didn't. It was a close run thing; what's left of the federation fleet, which isn't much, is scattered halfway across the galaxy. I'd say the Federation is in a lot of trouble.
Avon: Yes, it's difficult to sustain a military dictatorship when you've lost most of the military. [Hal laughs] I only hope Blake survived long enough to know that he was winning.... Both wars.
Hal: Blake? You were with Blake?
Avon: Yes. Though it hardly seems to matter now, if it ever did.
Hal: If it mattered? Blake and the Liberator. I've been hearing reports over the last couple of years. You were magnificent!
Avon: Not from where I was sitting.
Servalan: [Pointing a gun at Avon's head from behind] Stay quite still.
Servalan: You don't sound surprised.
Avon: Why should I be? It has a perverse kind of logic to it. Our meeting is the most unlikely happening I could imagine; therefore, we meet. Surprise seems inappropriate somehow.
Dayna: I Like the ancient weapons. The spear, the sword, the knife. They demand more skill. When you fight with them, conflict becomes more personal... More exciting.
Avon: More dangerous.
Dayna: Of course! Without danger, there's no pleasure.
Avon: That must limit your range of pleasures a bit.
Zen: Damage control estimates that breakdown is now beyond the capacity of auto-repair systems in all areas. Serious malfunction in life-support would indicate that evacuation by life capsule is a priority one requirement.
