Best Garibaldi moments...?

For a possible future article, I want to ask you all for your favorite Garibaldi episodes or moments... and why? Tell us why. [img]/forums/images/icons/smile.gif[/img] can be serious or light moments, but just something that was so Garibaldi or Jerry Doyle. Thanks.

"Face of the Enemy" barfight. One of my fav. episodes.
"Survivors" was Garibaldi episode.
"Points of No Return" had great moments.
"Epiphanies" was good Garibaldi episode. There were many good moments in season4.
"Conflicts of Interest" is one of my fav. Garibaldi episode. Good acting.
In season5 "Wheel of Fire" is good Garibladi episode.

Re: Best Garibaldi moments...?

I don't remember the episode titles, but I like the lighter moments where Garibaldi and Sinclair pull the breakfast switcheroo on Ivanova, the one where he "threatens" to rip Ivanova's coffee plants out by the roots, and the one where Garibaldi and Sheridan are ogling Ivanova's scrambled eggs and bacon.

For serious moments, I like all his scenes with Londo at the bar (e.g. in "Survivors").

Re: Best Garibaldi moments...?

I can't remember even close to the exact quote, but there is a good one that Garibaldi says. A government-type is asking about the new and as yet unknown Shadow ships. "Because you won't tell yourself...?" Garibaldi explains how he never lets himself know what he is doing; he finds it keeps things simpler.

If I had more time, I'd try to look it up. But I do love how he says he tries to stay out of the affairs of his own life because they are too complicated, or something.

The reason I liked this exchange (even if I can't quote it) is that it seemed to be Garibaldi at his flippant best. [img]/forums/images/icons/grin.gif[/img] 'Of course I won't tell anyone, because I never let myself know what I am doing' just seems uniquely Garibaldi-ish to me.

"Because you won't let yourself know...?"
"... I try never to get involved in my own life; too complicated"

Re: Best Garibaldi moments...?

I can think of two exchanges between Zack and Garibaldi.

At the beginning of the episode "Matters of Honor" two Drazi missionaries arive at the station. Garibaldi tells Zack to "explain the ah.. missionary position to these folks."

In the episode "Voices of Authority" Zack is complaining about the fit of his uniform, Garibaldi's link beeps and he answers "Garibaldi's fashion express, go!"

Then of course there is always Lenier and Garibaldi riding the motorcycle through the station. [img]/forums/images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Best Garibaldi moments...?

the "lousy dodgers" quote is classic Garibaldi. Whenever he's reading a paper you know it's coming. But Garibaldi in No comprimises shows who he is perfectly. If you are his friend he will go balls to the wall out for you. If he doesn't know you, he doesn't trust you and will question everything you do.

Re: Best Garibaldi moments...?

Garibaldi period in 'Between the Darkness and the Light' when Garibaldi is finally back to the normal Garibaldi that we all knew and loved. The next episode where he led the team that took over the ground stations was classic too, "Okay, which goes vertical, longitude or latitude?" [img]/forums/images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: Best Garibaldi moments...?

i was also going to suggest the fasten-zip or zip-fasten part from Babylon Squared.

Hypatia's quote is from Matters of Honor, here is the complete quote:

"I'm not authorized for that kind of information."
"But you are the head of security."
"Then what kind of head of security would I be if I let people like me know things that I'm not supposed to know? I know what I know because I have to know it. And if I don't have to know it, I don't tell me, and I don't let anyone else tell me either. Now look, we have tried most of the other ambassadors, why don't you speak to G'Kar, maybe he knows something about this ship."
"Under the terms of our recent treaty, I am not authorized to have any official conversation with the Narn without Centauri approval."
"So you'll ask unofficially. And I can give you reasonable assurances that the head of security will not report you for doing so."
"Because you won't tell yourself about it?"
"That's right. I never get involved with my own life. It's too much trouble."
"This is a very strange place you have here, Mr. Garibaldi."
"Thank you."

Thanks very much, GShans! [img]/forums/images/icons/grin.gif[/img] I don't keep tapes of the episodes, so I couldn't look it up. I was reasonably sure the Lurker's guide doesn't have long direct quotes from the series, either.

There certainly are a lot of classic Garibaldi quotes from B5, aren't there? He was one of those characters that got to be dramatic and comedic.

But most of us seem to be remembering his comedic moments.
