Una cerimonia funeraria per un leader della casta guerriera minbari si trasforma in un incidente diplomatico in seguito al furto del corpo dell'eminente esponente minbari. Nel frattempo, Ivanova e Talia Winters si scontrano quando i poteri telepatici di una ragazza vengono alla luce.
Talia: You are not being reasonable.
Ivanova: Fine. It's my call and I'm making it.
Garibaldi: You know, Jeff, I can't believe you are really going to attend the ceremony. I mean this Branmer guy planned and led the attack on the Line.
Sinclair: I know, he commanded one of the ships that splashed my team, but the war is over. At least that's what I keep telling myself.
Delenn: Alyt Neroon. I welcome you on behalf of all Minbari on this station. It is an unhappy journey on which you travel.
Neroon: For a warrior there is no other end to the journey.
Sinclair: You don't like it, do you?
Delenn: My preferences are not under discussion, Commander.
Neroon: That will suffice for now. These are my requirements, commander.
Sinclair: This is my station. I don't take orders here.
Neroon: Impetuous. Is this how you reacted on the Line, commander?
Sinclair: This isn't the Line.
Neroon: No. We were in control there.
Neroon: This was the greatest of us. Warrior, leader, the hero of the Line. He fought with honor, bravery, and with vision. Now, he belongs to the ages.
Ivanova: There is nothing more annoying than Mr. Garibaldi when he's right.
Franklin: Oh, by the way. Do you know what they say Narn taste like?
Garibaldi: Yeah, chicken. Man, I really need a vacation.
Alisa (a Ivanova e Talia): Stop it. Stop it, both of you. You keep arguing over what you want. You don't care about what I want. You don't even ask.
Talia: All right, Alisa. What do you want?
Sinclair (a Neroon): There is no shame in wanting to honor him, Alyt Neroon. I've fought on the Line against Branmer. I saw his valor and leadership first hand. Because his body... disappeared and I... feel some responsibility toward the Minbari people. There is no higher testimony to a warrior's courage and skill than praise from his enemy.
Sinclair (a Neroon): We fought long enough. Maybe it's time we started talking with one another.
Sinclair: Branmer's life was more significant than his battles. Let the warrior caste praise his courage in the war, and let the rest praise him for what he truly was: a man of peace.
Neroon: You talk like a Minbari, commander. Perhaps there was some small wisdom in letting your species survive.
Sinclair: We'd like to think so.
Neroon: Until another day, then.
Delenn: Alisa could become an instrument of great communication between Humans and Minbari. We suffer a lack there, as you know, commander.
Sinclair: The future in exchange for the past. I think that's very workable.
Alisa: There was one other thing. A word: "Chrysalis". I don't know what it means.
Sinclair: It's a cocoon, I think.
