there's always a boom tomorrow

  • Garibaldi: There he goes–Jinx-…Thomas.
  • Sinclair: Mm-hmm.
  • Susan Ivanova: You never did tell me what you think about that curse.
  • Sinclair: What curse?
  • Garibaldi: You know. That bit about if he leaves Babylon 5, the same thing that happened to Babylons 1, 2, 3 and 4 would happen to us.
  • Sinclair: Oh, that curse. You're not taking it seriously, are you?
  • Garibaldi: Me? No, of course not. You?
  • Sinclair: No.
  • Garibaldi: So, how long until he hits jump?
  • Ivanova: [working her console] Oh, right about…now!
  • [the ship goes through the jump gate without incident]
  • Garibaldi: No boom?
  • Sinclair: No boom.
  • Ivanova: No boom today. Boom tomorrow. There's always a boom tomorrow.
  • [Sinclair and Garibaldi exchange an exasperated look and wander off.]
  • Ivanova: What?! Look, somebody's got to have some damn perspective around here. Boom. Sooner or later. BOOM!
