  • Silly B5 Quote Conversation

    On the theory that it's just been too quiet around here for the past little while, I thought of something silly to do that might be fun.

    Let's see if we can have a conversation using nothing but actual, but unrelated B5 quotes. Keeping it going is more important than making sense although it'd be cool if there was some insane kind of sense. For instance:

    "Captain, either you snore or last night we had a hell of a breach in the hull."

    "Yeah, well, the rent is cheap, the pay is decent and I get to make my own hours."

    "We are already in far greater jeopardy than you can possibly imagine."


    So...who wants to play? Remember, this should be a conversation of sorts, not just a random bunch of quotes.

    PS: If you're looking for quotes, this is a good site.

      Oooh..that one could be fun. Especially now that I'm at work Another idea maybe would be, in honor of TLT a bunch of us start the show over and watch certain episodes around a certain timeframe and discuss? I know that'd be hard to coordinate maybe...but fun, definitely!

            I'll reply to my previous pessimistic post with a meaningful retort.

            "The future is always changing. We create the future: with our words, our deeds and with our beliefs."

                    EDIT: Sorry, Jan. Didn't see you dropped a quote in there. I was talking to myself.

                          Those are some great quotes, B5O! But don't forget to leave room for others to play. 4 posts in a row is kinda much.

                          That said...

                          "And they taught me terror. How to face it and how to use it."
