    <<Well, actually I do believe he was reading a copy of ''The Demolished Man'' in the Psi tril, so that much stands to reason.>>

    I still haven't read the PC trilogy. Is it so good I should rush to the store and buy it? Is it as good as LOF and POTM?

    It's clear that Bester is a well read guy. I wonder if he's ever read anything by Alfred Bester...

    Well I read the Amontillado story, but I didnt quite see what the heck was so original about it. Some guy lures another guy into a tomb and walls hiim up, the end.

    So Bester was refering to the tomb of the Montresors, huh? Well, it seems straightforward enough....

    Hmm, well its kind of neat to know.

    So, uh, thanks Jan.

    And dont forget 'the Evil one' in Time Bandits

    Too bad JMS didn't have anything better for him (or the casting director).

    <<Is it just as simple as: he didn't really know what he was doing?>>

    Well, this IS the guy who invites Daniel Ortega over to his crib to party.

    Damian London did a great job as the Centauri regent.
    I think I forgot to mention him before... and now that we're mentioning favorite moments: when he is telling Londo that he won't see another day (The Fall of Centauri Prime).
    The Regent had been mostly a comic character before, in that last appearance London showed quite well a dramatic aspect, still with the same personality, but no longer a comic character, a real tragic character.
    That was a great scene.

    Thank you Jan! Darn, that was bugging me.

    Although G'Kar was my favorite for incredible quotes, Bester was the king of the one-line quips. Like this exchange with Garibaldi (and I think this is the quote, but definitely not exact)

    Bester: "Mundanes breed like rabbits. It takes generations to create a telepath"
    Garibaldi "And mundanes are expendable"
    Bester (smugly): "Got it in ONE, Mr. Garibaldi"

    And I thought of another really good bit of casting that often goes unnoticed: Clayton Landey in the role of Number 2.

    Marcus: "I'm a Ranger"
    #2: "You a LOOONG way from Texas, son. Besides, you got the wrong accent"

    Man I LOVE that line!

    Recurring Role - Bester. (I've used Walters stunning performances to hook two hard core Trek fans onto B5)

    Actual Guest Appearance - The great David Warner. A tremendous screen presence for such a slight man.

    Could someone please explain what this means?
    In 'Ship of Tears' Sheridan asks Ivanova to meet with Bester first to see if he might try to scan her. When she goes into his quarters he asks her to sit:

    IVANOVA: I'd rather stand.
    BESTER: I suspect you'd *rather* walk out that door and wall me up inside, do a little recreation of "The Cask of Amontillado"...for the love of god, Montressor...
    IVANOVA: If you get near a point, make it.

    What Bester quotes is from a short story by Edgar Allen Poe that can be found here:
