Re: Best Garibaldi moments...?

My fav Mr. G moment would have to be from Divided Loyalties
when Lyta sends him the telepathic signal and he fakes it...
Talk about foreshadowing...

For everyone's information, I want to do an article for the front of the site before we launch our interview with Jerry Doyle. So the more essay-like the better. [img]/forums/images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

"Show me the way to go home
cause I'm tired and I want to go to bed
I had me a drink about an hour ago
and it went right to my head"

It wasn't really a shining moment for Garibaldi, he was in his room alone and was getting drunk after having been sober so long, but I found his little singing rendition amusing.

Re: Best Garibaldi moments...?

I can't find a direct quote of the scene, but one of my favorie Garibaldi moments is when he's is running his little buisness where he finds people or things that have been displaced be the Shadow war. One man is in search of a statue of one of his religion's saints. During the conversation Garabaldi discovers that the man is talking about two different religions and relizes the statue has more than just sentimental value. The man finally admits to hiding valuables in the statue. Garabaldi says he wants 50% of what's in it, after some discussion Garibaldi says something like "35% and I won't tell the Drazi you've been poking holes in the deities." I like it because it shows the classic no nonsense Garibaldi.

Re: Best Garibaldi moments...?

Note to Antony: o.k. more "essay style" is what you want eh? [img]/forums/images/icons/grin.gif[/img] :

"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."

That is the dialog that GShans kindly looked up for me.

This is not only funny, but it does actually fit Garibaldi's personality perfectly. He knows a lot more than he ever reports officially. It is how he is effective as head of security (and then later, the one who circumvents that same security).

As others have mentioned about other bits of his dialog or action, this also hauntingly foreshadows his later fate in his relationship with Sheridan. In so many ways, JMS dropped hints about the turn that Garibaldi's relationship with Sheridan. But you can only see them in retrospect.

I wonder how much Jerry Doyle knew, and when. (Oops, sounds like I'm treating him like he's a politician. [img]/forums/images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] Many apologizings. He'd never be nuts enough to go after that job [img]/forums/images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img] .) When he spoke these lines, did he know what he'd eventually do to Sheridan?

Re: Best Garibaldi moments...?

IIRC, JMS generally kept the actors in the dark about where things were going. He might give them a general idea (he told Peter Jurasik that he simply was going down a dark road), but unless the actors needed to know something in order to perform it at that moment, they weren't told jack. If they knew things they didn't need to know for that time, they might change their performance from what it should be (I hope this makes sense. To me it does, but then again, I'm one of them crazy actors)

Re: Best Garibaldi moments...?

I like the time when Talia's standing outside the transport tube and Sinclair walks by and asks her it there was something wrong with it.

Talia-"No, not really. It seems like everytime I get into the tube, Mr. Garibaldi's there. It's like he knows."

Sinclair-"Talia, Mr. Garibaldi is many things, but he's not omniscient."

No sooner does he finish his sentence than the tube doors open with Garibaldi standing right there.

Talia-"I think I'll take the stairs."

Sinclair-"I think I'll join you."

Garibaldi doesn't speak a single word in the scene, but it's a classic Garibaldi moment.
