I used to think that it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn’t it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe.

Babylon 5: The Ballad of Stephen and Marcus

(Dr. Stephen Franklin and Ranger Marcus Cole are stuck in a cargo crate on a ship bound for Mars.)
Stephen Franklin:
Is this really the best ship you could find?
Marcus Cole:
Yes. [he flicks his pike open, then closes it just as quickly]
Franklin:
Smells like the inside of a Martian pleasure dome on Sunday morning.
Marcus:
Wouldn't know about that.
Franklin:
Don't make me come over there and [flick] take that thing from you.
Marcus:
Helps me relax.
Franklin:
Marcus, this is the kind of conversation that can only end with a gunshot!
Marcus:
Would you like me to sing instead?
Franklin:
No.
Marcus:
You haven't heard me!
Franklin:
Marcus, please!
Marcus:
I am the very model of a modern major-general...
(He continues to sing over the credits- and the sounds of various B5 cast and crew members trying to get him to stop. The next episode opens with...)
Marcus Cole:
I spy with my little eye…something beginning with "B."
Stephen Franklin:
[annoyed] Boxes.
Marcus:
Fine! I spy with my little eye something beginning with "M."
Franklin:
More boxes.
Marcus:
Two in a row.
Franklin:
[deadpan] "And that's when I shot him, Your Honor."
Marcus:
I spy with my little eye something beginning with "E."
Franklin:
I-I give up.
Marcus:
Oh come on.
Franklin:
This better not be what I–
Marcus and Franklin:
[in unison] Even MORE boxes!
(When they get to Mars, their false identities list them as a married couple on their honeymoon.)
