Favourite quotes from television programs

Here is a list of some of my favourite quotes from the various TV episodes that I've seen - I've tried to choose those that make sense out of context.

"One man can make a difference."
(Wilton Knight, Knight Rider)

"If [my son] has to get to the hospital at noon on the sunniest day of the year, he'll get there. Even if I don't."
(Angel, Angel - Dad)

"Only one human captain has ever survived battle with the Minbari fleet. He is behind me. You are in front of me. If you value your lives, be somewhere else."
(Delenn, Babylon 5 - Severed Dreams)

"Why do our plans never work?"
(D'Argo, Farscape - Kansas)

"The first duty of a Starfleet officer is to the truth- be it scientific truth, historical truth, personal truth. It is the guiding principle on which Starfleet was founded!"
(Jean-Luc Picard, Star Trek: The Next Generation - The First Duty)

"Never give up. Never surrender."
(Charles Gunn, Angel - Peace Out)
N.B. I know this is originally a quote from Galaxy Quest, but it impressed me more here.

"Gargoyles protect. It is our nature, our purpose. To lose that is to be corrupt, empty, lifeless."
(Goliath, Gargoyles - Reawakening)

"A message means nothing if no one hears it ... a flower in the forest is just a plant if no one sees it ... we're gonna need more blood. I want more skin. I want action. I want weapons. I want battlefields with beaten, bloody bodies. We're gonna take this little flower and we're gonna cram it down their throats for their own good!"
(Gabrielle, Xena: Warrior Princess - The Play's The Thing)

"If you turn your back on me now, for as long as I live, you will not be welcome anywhere in the Klingon Empire. Your family will be removed from the High Council, your lands seized, and your House stripped of its titles. You will have nothing!"
"Except my honor."

(Gowron and Worf, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine - The Way of the Warrior)
