Citizen G'Kar: Do you want to be president?
Captain John Sheridan: Yes.
Citizen G'Kar: Then put your hand on the book and say I do.
Captain John Sheridan: I do.
Citizen G'Kar: Good, let's eat.

Ambassador Londo Mollari: Yes, absolutely!
Susan Ivanova: Boom. Boom boom boom. Boom boom. Boom! Have a nice day!

"The universe is run by the complex interweaving of three elements. Energy, matter, and enlightened self-interest."
