I've been to a lot of B5 quote pages, but very few seem to have the full length speeches and monologues that the characters give. For example Sheridan's post Z'ha'dum speech from the catwalk, or G'Kar's River/God speech from season 5. Can anyone recommend any good sites?

The Down Below Sound Archive is the BEST place.
The guy usually gets the quotes slightly wrong, but you can download them and get all the right words yourself - I use it all the time:

Oh, and the G'kar river/god speech is one that i have memorised (sorry i just love it) haha

"What is truth and what is god?"
G'kar -
"If i take a lamp and shine it toward the wall, a bright spot will appear on the wall. The lamp is our search for truth, for understanding. To often we assume that the light on the wall is god. But the the light is not the goal of the search, it is the result of the search. The more intense the search, the brighter the light on the wall. The brighter the light on the wall, the greater the sense of revelation upon seeing it. Similarly, someone who does not search, who does not bring a lanton with him, sees nothing.

"What we perseive as god, is mearly the bi-product of our search for god. It may simply be an appreciation of the light, pure and unblemished, not understanding that it comes from us. Sometimes we stand in front of the light, and assume that we are the centre of the universe - god looks asttonisingly like we do. Or we turn to look and our shadow, and assume that all is darkness. If we allow ourselves to get in the way we defeat the purpose. Which is to use the light of our search to illuminate the wall in all its beauty and in all its flaws. And in so doing better understand the world around us"

That was all from memory (so sorry about the spelling), but i'm never going to forget that quote /ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif

oh, and the river

the then confused narn asked-
"ah......and...what is truth and what is god"
g'kar sighs, "truth is a river"
"and god?"
"god....is the mouth of the river"
"ahhhh" the other narns respond
Yeah, I like The Down Below Sound Archives for speeches and lines from the show and such. I downloaded a few of them, plus used some of them as ideas for sig lines at different boards.
