    Title: Free Black T-Shirt
    Author: [email protected]

    Cafe Press has recently added the capability of doing black t-shirts,
    but because the set-up costs are higher, we're only going to do one
    every once in a while. So we were trying to decide what to make the
    first one, quote-wise, and I thought...why not turn to the group mind?

    So if you had to pick something that would look great on a t-shirt, was
    short and to the point, would have at least some resonance to non-B5
    folk (as "Understanding is not required" or "a kind word and a 2x4" can
    be appreciated outside the family), and comes from a jms episode (just
    to make life simpler)...what would you suggest?

    Once a quote has been suggested, it's off the boards, so no others
    should be made using it in this thread. We'll pick one of those for
    this shirt, and the person who suggested it will get that shirt free.

    jms
    He added another note to let people know not to suggest a quote already in use.

    "Blood calls out for blood" - Londo (Midnight)

    "What do you want, you moon-faced assassin of joy?" - Londo (Chrysalis)

    "IÆm starting to wonder if what we just saw is a preview of things to come." - Dr. Franklin (Infection)

    "Words just cannot express how much IÆm enjoying this." - Susan (Parliament)

    "I donÆt like people rummaging around in my head." - Sinclair (Mind War)

    "ItÆs Shadow play, without form or substance." - Knight Two (Sky Full of Stars)

    "The Shadows have come for us all." - Lady Ladira (Portents)

    "YouÆre very charming, in an odd sort of way." - Grey (Eyes)

    "Enough people have played with my brain already this year." Sinclair (Eyes)

    "Cats. This is like being nibbled to death by cats." - Londo (Chrysalis)

    That covers just the first season, and is the quote from each episode that I think would work, and that I would buy for myself *and* for others. I didn't even add in any Jane quotes!

      But...you need to post them to the newsgroup.

      No Jane quotes? I'm shocked...simply shocked.

          Well, if it is a black shirt the obvious one is:

          The Corps is Mother,
          The Corps is Father.


          and on the back

          Be Seeing You!

          obviously in The Prisoner font (a variant of Albertus).

          But much more fun would be:

          My father went to Z'ha'dum and died
          and all I got was this lousy T-shirt
          (and this dumb Centauri jug)

            LOL! I absolutely love that second one but it's not a quote from a JMS script...yet, at least.

              I'll buy that for a dollar (sorry for the Robocop moment).

                Your list showed up. I wondered if someone should explain that Jane is to you as Andreas is to Amy or as scripts are to me.

                  I doubt it ... There's nothing sexual about Jane for me. The same cannot be said of Andreas/Amy ... or you and the scripts.

                    HEY! I'll have you know that I've never *once* molested a script-I don't care what "Moments of Transition" tried to tell you! Hrmph. It's about obsession, not sex. And aren't those both fragrances?

                          Hi, ednemo! Those are good ones. I think the 'vacant look' one would work best for the non-fans who'd see it, too.

                          Don't forget to post them on the moderated newsgroup, though, if you want to be enterred for the shirt.

                              There are lots of different newsreaders, possibly one specific to your own ISP but in the FAQ there's a link for you to use Google Groups for free. You have to use an actual email address and the first several posts are generally slow but that's the only place JMS hangs out.
