"You know, about that sandwich, captain it's a funny thing about toxins.
I've always felt that if you eat a little poison every day you'll get used to it.

"I don't believe this. What is it with this place? I mean, last week someone tries to assassinate Sheridan, and now someone tries to poison Londo. My God! What is wrong with you people? Don't you have anything else better to do? Why don't you get a hobby? Read a book or something?"

"Maybe, but that's tomorrow. I don't think any one of our gods would object Londo Mollari having one single night of happiness."

"So... you have a magic rock, that provides you with a mystical place, that is a metaphor of a book, that gives you answers to questions we haven't asked yet. And you want us to spend days in hyperspace based on *that*??"

"Great War. Terrible War. There is much killings. Everyone fighting. A great darkness. It is the end of everything. Zathras warned but, oh no, no one listened to poor Zathras, no. Great War, but great hope of peace. Need place. Place to gather, to fight, to organize."
