Babylon 5: Believers

Dr Franklin battles with the problem of going against his oath in order to respect a family's religious beliefs. As much as the parents wishes their son to survive his illness - it is against their religion to cut a human open by means of surgery. Meanwhile, Ivanova is growing restless, missing her days as a pilote. In order to calm her down, Sinclair sends her on an escort mission that encounters unexpected problems.

Episode Quotes
Ambassador Kosh: The avalanche has started, it is too late for the pebbles to vote.

Garibaldi: (to Dr. Franklin) "Sure" is for people with nothing on the line. You and me, we just get on with it.

Commander Sinclair: Who asked you to play God?
Dr. Franklin: Every damn patient who comes through that door, that's who! People come to doctors because they want us to be gods. They want us to make it better...or make it not so bad. They want to be healed and they come to me when their prayers aren't enough. Well, if I have to take the responsibility, then I claim the authority too. I did good. And we both know it. And no one is going to take that away.

Commander Sinclair: I'm waiting. For an apology.
Dr. Franklin: You'd better check the temperature in Hell first.

Commander Sinclair: Life has to be more than just a pulse beat.

Commander Sinclair: Sometimes, doing the right thing doesn't change anything.
