Seriously, we could fill this whole thread with Babylon 5 quotes and start another one.


Here's a link to the clip. And I love the way he gets him...

I never could got a chance to enjoy Babylon 5. My sister loved it amd always told me I was missing a great show. I bet she has every single episode. I had a chat with her about this post.

Nice clip. Indeed I missed a great show.

Son, your mother says I have to hang you. Personally I don't think this is a capital offense. But if I don't hang you, she's gonna hang me and frankly, I'm not the one in trouble. —cthia's father. Incident in ? Axiom of Common Sense

Yup, it's about the best thing that's ever been on the idiot box. Star Trek and Stargate were good, but Babylon 5 was both better and more consistently good. Just reading the episode titles will send shivers down yer spine:

Midnight On The Firing Line
There All The Honor Lies
A Race Through Dark Places
The Hour Of The Wolf
Signs And Portents
The Parliament Of Dreams

Still available on DVD, 5 seasons plus a set of 5 movies.

And now for the obligatory one-liner:

Ivanova: "No boom today. Boom tomorrow. There's always a boom tomorrow."

It´s time for you to watch it now then. ;)
And make sure you haven´t missed Buffy while you´re at it. :mrgreen:

Which leads me to some Buffy quotes:
Xander "That´s your scary costume?"
Anya "Bunnies frighten me."


Giles "What do you want?"
Angelus "I wanna torture you. I used to love it and it´s been a long time. I mean, the last time i tortured someone, they didn´t even have chainsaws."


Buffy "... Speak English, not whatever they speak in, um..."
Giles "England?"


Anya "Can i trade in the children for more cash?"


Joyce "Have we met?"
Spike "Uuh, you hit me with an axe one time. Remember, get the hell away from my daughter?"
Joyce "Oh..."


Spike "Your life flashed before your eyes? Cup of tea, cup of tea, almost got shagged, cup of tea?"


Spike "A bear! You made a bear!"
Buffy "I didn´t mean to?"
Spike "Undo it! Undo it!"


Drusilla "I met an old man. I didn't like him. He got stuck in my teeth."


Drusilla "How do you feel about eternal life?"
Xander "We couldn't just start with a coffee?"

More Babylon 5...

Susan Ivanova (over the comm): And just one more thing... On your trip back, I'd like you to learn the Babylon 5 Mantra -
Ivanova is always right.
I will listen to Ivanova.
I will not ignore Ivanova's recommendations.
Ivanova is God.
And, if this ever happens again, Ivanova will personally rip your lungs out.
Babylon Contol, out.
(Turns and looks at rest of bridge crew staring at her. They get back to work quickly)
(Turns back to control panel): Civilians.
(Looks up): Just kidding about that "God" part. No offense.

Another Ivanova bit:

Enemy ships: This is Captain Jake Thompson of the advance destroyer group to enemy vessels... we have you surrounded. You are ordered to surrender your vessels, or be destroyed. I say again, surrender or be destroyed.

Ivanova (turns to Marcus at the comm station): Put me on with him. And give me firing control.

Ivanova: This is the White Star fleet. Negative on surrender. We will *not* stand down.

Captain Jake: Who is this? Identify yourself.

Ivanova: Who am I? I am Susan Ivanova, Commander, daughter of Andre and Sofie Ivanov. I am the right hand of Vengeance, and the boot that is going to kick your sorry ass all the way back to Earth, sweetheart. I am Death incarnate, and the last living thing that you are ever going to see. God sent me.

Claudia Christian, who plays Susan, would have been perfect to play Honor, had the movie been made 20 years ago, IMO.

Never got into Buffy. Liked the movie, but probably only saw one or two episodes of the series.

Thanks Maxx for this post!
My God, was the writing always this good?
I've got a really sick feeling in the pit of my stomach that I missed what would have been some of my best loved sci-fi works. I should have known that if my sister was addicted they had to be good.

The series is drastically better than the movie even if not every single episode is superb.

A bit short and lean maybe but yeah, she might have suited the role.
