    Quotes have long been a staple of B5 and DS9 fandoms. You get thoughtful, funny, quizzical... everything. So it seemed a go place to start with the new thread.

    Have at it. What are some of your faves?

    ^ Oh wow, I'm gonna have to think about that! I have a ton of favorite quotes from B5...although not many of them are as contemplative as that one. Most of my faves are hilarious comments that Londo made. :lol:

    However, I think I can dig up a few Delenn quotes that made me think.....

    Oh...and by the way, I've not watched The Lost Tales yet because I've been working a ton of hours this past week. However, I am taking tomorrow and Wednesday off as comp-time, and hope to get to at least one of them then!

    I've found a few excellent qites that have compiled a goodly amount of B5 quotes. Interestingly enough the "Down Below Sound Archive" is a great resource, if you're looking for one in particular.

    Over the years I've maintained my own collection of favorites, that comes to around 250 now. Heh, it probably covers a singificant portion of the actual spoken words in the series. :lol:

    Okay...here's a Londo qoute (one of many) that always makes me laugh:


    :guffaw:

    It is comments like this that make Londo my favorite character in all of scifi!

    Here's another classic:

    Well, so far, I've watched the pilot movie and the first eight episodes...my favorite quote would be the one from G'Kar, when he picked the ant up from the flower in 'Mind War' (I think).

    I'd have to pop the DVD back in to get the exact quote, though.

    That first one, and the last part of the second quote.

    :thumbsup:

    Yeah, the Best Buy sale last week seemed like a good one, so I pulled some cash together & went shoppin'. I picked up the five seasons of the series, as well as Babylon 5 - The Movie Collection, which has The Gathering, In the Beginning, Thirdspace, The River of Souls & A Call to Arms for a grand total of just under $150. Considerin' the sticker price on the fifth season alone was $99.99, plus tax, I figured I was gettin' a pretty good deal.

    Delenn - ready to kick some ass and take some names. :thumbsup:

    THIS has to be my favorite speech from B5.

    And I loved this one as well.

    :cool: :thumbsup:

    If we're going with quotes / speeches, here's one of my absolute favourites - just one among dozens:
    - Ivanova, "Sleeping in Light"

    Figured I'd get that in before Neroon does. :D

    Lorien, "Whatever Happened to
    Mr. Garibaldi?"

    ---

    A shame I procrastinated those final reviews for so long. If anyone has any last comments, they're still at the end of the old thread.

    And I should clarify my response to Crusade. I enjoyed the series, though it was flawed. I also recognize that it lasted for so brief a time that's it's really impossible to evaluate it in the comprehensive way you can Babylon 5.

    I'll be back with responses to the last four novels I have to read in December, and hopefully, jabber on a new Lost Tale or two every now and again. I said it before, but I'll say it again: it's been fun.

    That was wise, Grasshopper. ;) So here's one of mine, a popular one that I will get in:

    From "Z'ha'dum", rendered by the unmatched gravity of Andreas Katsulas' voice....

    And a personal favorite of mine that is not often quoted. It has real substance in it:

    It fits in so many phases of life, even the online ones. ;)
