Londo's Best Quotes
 
I decided to post this thread because Londo is a very interesting chracter who can make you laugh in the beginning of an episode and make you despise him at the end.He changes very much troughout the series but he never loses his sense of homour.These are some of my favourites:

“But this .. this, this, this is like being nibbled to death by .. what are those Earth creatures called? Feathers, long bill, webbed feet .. go 'quack'?"
"Cats."
"Cats. I'm being nibbled to death by cats."

"Love?! What does love have to do with marriage?"

"Now, listen to me. I do not like insects. I do not like little brown things with eight legs. I do not like anything with eight legs. Well, except for the Vinzini, but only because they are terrible at cards. Something to do with compound eyes, I think. I want this thing dead!

As per my screenname: "You have that vacant look in your eyes that says, 'Hold my head to your ear: you will hear the sea!'"

Yes, he had some of the best single quotes in the series. I'm not going to look anything up to get it verbatim, but there is always the popular "... in purple I am STUNNING" quote.

And his quoting of his father whose shoes were too tight, but it didn't matter because he's forgotten how to dance.

And the rather sad, reflective 'when I had not power, I had all the choices in the world. Now I have all the power I could ever want, and no choices at all'.

As I said, rough quotes. I'll leave it to the hard-core fans to find exact quotations, if anyone cares to.

And many, many more. If people take notice of this thread, I'm sure you'll be reminded of some real gems. :)

Oh, my favorite of all is "What do you want, you moon faced assassin of joy?" And that's how we met Vir...

It has been too long, time to dig out the episodes and watch again.

"Vir! Intelligence has nothing to do with politics."

"If you see anything this big with eight legs coming your way, let me know. I have to kill it before it develops language skills."

"I'm not sure that actually made sense, but I'm afraid that if I go back and try to figure it out, I will start bleeding from my ears."

"Now I go to spread happiness to the rest of the station. It's a terrible responsibility, but I have learned to live with it."

The intelligence/politics one Ninja Squirrel posted is one of my favorites.

I also like "Vir, you aren't important enough to kill!"

One of my favorites is from "A View from the Gallery":

Quote:

The universe hates me, you know. I
don't know why, I never did anything
to the universe to --
(off G'kar's look)
-- well, all right, a few things.
But after a while, you would think
it would be enough.

That is one of my favorites Jan. Almost forgot that one. I might be wrong on this quote. Heck it may be from a different character on B5. But one of my favorites was when I think it was Londo to Vir. " Only age understands regret." If I am wrong, someone out there please correct me.


thanks
