karma. This is from Ivanova's voice over at the beginning of "Points of Departure".
|According to Ivanova, how big is Ambassador Delenn's cocoon?|
yea high. Also from "Points of Departure": Sheridan: "What's our status?" Ivanova: "Chief of security is in critical condition in medlab. He thinks there's a conspiracy concerning the president's death. Ambassador G'Kar has mysteriously vanished. After two years we still don't know what Ambassador Kosh looks like inside his encounter suit. And Ambassador Delenn is in a cocoon." Sheridan: "A cocoon? As in a moth or a butterfly?" Ivanova: "Yes, sir. About yea high." Sheridan: "Interesting place you have here."
|Finish the quote: "Oh, great, now you can give me something for the ______. Where were you when I was going through ________?" |
pain puberty. This is from "The Geometry of Shadows" after Ivanova gets injured during negotiations with the Drazi. Franklin: "You will have to wear a cast. And it's gonna hurt." Ivanova: "Swell. Ouch." Franklin: "I can give you something for the pain." Ivanova: "Oh, great, now you can give me something for the pain. Where were you when I was going through puberty?"
|What is the correct response to the quote: "All my life I've fought against imperialism. Now, suddenly I am the expanding Russian frontier."|
"But with very nice borders.". All the exchanges between the command staff and Franklin in "A Distant Star" are funny. Here is the rest of Ivanova's: Ivanova: "If everything is satisfactory, Doctor, I'll be returning to my duties." Franklin: "Just one last thing, Commander. I worked out this food plan for you." Ivanova: "Are you telling me to go on a diet? I'll have you know I don't have an ounce of fat in my body. I exercise vigorously once a day despite my injury, and--" Franklin: "When you do eat, you don't eat enough of the right things. You have deficiencies in calsium, iron and several other minerals. And it's hampering your recovery. Now, I recommend iron supplements, and an increased diet...food plan, to replenish you system." Ivanova: "I'll gain weight!" Franklin: "Well, briefly, yes." Ivanova: "Figures. All my life I've fought against imperialism. Now, suddenly I am the expanding Russian frontier." Franklin: "But with very nice borders."
|According to Sheridan, where did Ivanova once throw a telepath out of a window?|
Io. Ivanova has always passionately disliked telepaths. This quote is from "A Spider in the Web": Ivanova: "Well, you know how I feel about telepaths." Sheridan: "Do I ever. You threw one out of a third story window on Io." Ivanova: "There was an ample pool below the window." Sheridan: "I'll assume you knew that."
|To whom was the following quote spoken: "I have been nothing but compassionate and understanding. I mean, all you had to do was to admit you were wrong and I was right and everything would've been fine."|
Talia. This is from "Divided Loyalties" where Ivanova and Talia get a little...close.
|Finish the quote: "Captain, either you snore or last night we had a hell of a _____ in the hull."|
breach. Sheridan and Ivanova camp out in Sheridan's office when locked out of their quarters in "A Race Through Dark Places". Ivanova: "You snore." Sheridan: "No, I don't." Ivanova: "Yes, you do." Sheridan: "No, I don't." Ivanova: "Captain, either you snore or last night we had a hell of a breach in the hull."
|Who responds to the following quote: "No traffic, no complaints, no noise. Traders, troublemakers, and ambassadors, all tucked snuggly in their little beds. I love this time of night."|
Corwin. This is between Ivanova and Corwin at the beginning of "GROPOS" before the station is swamped by soldiers. Ivanova: "No traffic, no complaints, no noise. Traders, troublemakers, and ambassadors, all tucked snuggly in their little beds. I love this time of night." Corwin: "There is no night in deep space. And time is a meaningless concept when you stop to think about it."
|In what episode was the following quote spoken: "I slept with you the other night. You didn't call, you didn't write. I think you did it just for spite!"|
"Acts of Sacrifice". Ivanova teaches the Lumati ambassador the proper human mating ritual. Ivanova: "Boom. Shubba-lubba-lubba. Boom. Shubba-lubba-lubba. Hey there, hey there, three bags full. You come here often? Yes, I do. Dinner. Shubba-lubba-lubba. Drinks. Shubba-lubba-lubba. Kiss. Kiss. Kiss. Kiss. Kiss. How do you like it so far?...I slept with you the other night. You didn't call, you didn't write. I think you did it just for spite. Oh... yes... Oh, yes. Oh, yes. OH YES! Tell me about your portfolio. Oh Yes Yes Yes YES! Lie to me about your family. Oh, yes!. Oh, Yes. Oh, YES Yes Yes YES! YEAAA! OH! Oh... Oh... God you're good." Correlilmurzon: "What do I do now??" Ivanova: "Old style? You roll over and go to bed. New style? You go out for pizza and I never see you again."
|Finish the quote from "There All the Honor Lies": "Welcome to Babylon 5, the last best hope for a(n) ________."|
quick buck. Sheridan informs Ivanova that EarthForce is opening a giftshop on B5 to help offset the budget. This quote is, in my opinion, a fabulous direct insult of "Star Trek: Deep Space 9" which was on air at the same time. Ivanova: "Welcome to Babylon 5, the last best hope for a quick buck." Sheridan: "Commander." Ivanova: "But it's just demeaning. We're not just some...deep space franchise. This station is about something."
|Who is Ivanova referring to in the following quote: "And I thought I was a pessimist!"|
Deeron. This is Ivanova's response to Deeron's statement: "The war has already begun, Captain. All that remains now is honor...and death!" in the episode "Points of Departure".
|Finish the quote: "While some of the other species wouldn't mind if you wiped each other out, even they would prefer that you did so _______."|

|Finish the quote from "The Geometry of Shadows": "You're saying just because I'm holding this right now, I'm _______ leader? But I'm human."|
green. The line after this is hilarious, and so is the former green leader's facial expressions: "Rules of combat older than contact with other races. Did not mention aliens. Rules change caught up in committee. Not come through yet."
|To whom was the following spoken: "You're so cute when you're worried about investigating someone close to you."|
Garibaldi. In the episode, "A Race Through Dark Places", Garibaldi is trying to figure out who is running the telepath underground railroad. He naturally suspects Ivanova because of her poorly concealed opinions of Psi Corps.
|In what episode was the following spoken: "If you continue in this behavior you'll just make the other pilots feel inadequate."|
"All Alone in the Night". Sheridan decides to take out a squadron of starfuries in "All Alone in the Night" on a routine mission. After he launches from the cobra bay, he flips around the face C&C and matches rotation with the station. Ivanova chides him on his behavior and Sheridan responds with "Spoilsport".
