Just rewatched WEHTMG?.

Now that is INTENSE.

But there is a line in there that should cause everyone in the line to
“go mad together”
at JMS. He gave us the line and it still creates the same reaction.

But I think it has more to do with the fact that what is relative and
what isn’t does not
depend on the person answering a question but the one asking it.

Posted on: America Online

I’m not skilled at the “Top 10″ list. However, I found one in a national
magazine that could apply to the G-Mon and co.
“Best pieces of advice ever given”: (not originally in this order)

10. Be nice to people on your way up, ’cause you’ll meet them on the
way down.
9.Treat your friends like family, and your family like friends.
8.Let your love be like misty rains, coming softly, but flooding the
river.
7.The smallest deed is greater than the grandest intention.
6.You’re not in competion with anyone but yourself.
5.The best vitamin for making friends: B1
(The best vitamin for fighting shadows: B5)
4.Don’t try to change the wind, change the sail.
3.If you can’t be the tablecloth, don’t be the dishrag.
2.Anger is one letter short of danger.

and…..
1.Can’t nothing make your life work, if you ain’t the architect.

For the answer to this question I think we might need some spoiler

nuf?
I think the *line* Annie is referring to is the answer to G’Kar’s
question when he is brought before the emperor as a gift to Londo.
He asked “where is Mr. Garibaldi?” and the Emperor looked at him and
said, very simply, “Who?”
As soon as I heard this I was reminded of the answer to Lady T’s
question to JMS, the all-powerful creator, regarding the G-mon’s
love-life. Of course, to us it was far more insightful than it was to
either G’Kar or Londo. I hope this explanation was helpful :-)

I know I’m not as good at this as Mongoose but I’ve finally gotten the
time to figure out a new top ten– so here goes nothin’

Top Ten Things You Should Not Do If You Want To Have A Good Year:

10) Do not hitch a ride on a Shadow ship and expect to be ignored by
governmental groups such as PSI Corps.
9) Do not leave an area of sanctuary unless you are prepared for the
possible consequences of being apprehended.
8) Do not withhold vital information from someone if you intend to
have a meaningful and productive relationship with that person in
the future.
7) Do not trust someone who says “the One” is “irrelevant” and goes
by the name Kosh.
6) Do not avoid asking questions because you are afraid of the
answers.
5) Do not spend all of your time meditating and fasting— get out
and DO SOMETHING.
4) Do not be so concerned with the offense of a personal mission
that you forget you are present to protect and help your friend.
3) Do not trust someone who is constantly trying to get you to
surrender to TOCK.
2) Do not forget to try to fly if you are falling off a cliff.
1) Do not ever lock Mr. Garibaldi in a small concrete cell and torture
him– Remember, he is afraid of what he may do if he ever *really
let go*. Be afraid, be very afraid…. (Unless you’re in the line :)

Garibaldi…..
the restaurant?

Yes, it’s true! There is a restaurant in Corpus Christi, TX called
Tacqueria Garibaldi and one owner says it is named after our beloved
G-mon. He says he sold the name to his wife by telling her he was
going to name it after Garibaldi Plaza in Mexico, but he says the real
intent all along was to name it after the character on B5 ! The
restaurant serves some of the best mexican food in town and boasts
live Mariachi music from the Mariachi Cascabel on Sundays 12 to 2.
The place is a regular party, just the kind of place I could see
Michael in if he decided to skip Italian for a day. I was in there today
and had the best beef fajitas I’ve ever had and I was serenaded by
the Mariachi’s at my table… pretty great way to spend a meal …… now
if Michael had only been my lunch companion everything would have
been perfect……. (BIG SIGH) I can keep dreaming and hopefully we
will see more of the Gorgeous one in the next ep. He was in the
commercial teaser. I know I saw him ( I don’t think I was dreaming)
Hope I’m right.

Re:G-mon Withdrawal

Posted on: America Online

The line that should make us all go mad together is in reference to
Carthagia (sp?) reply
when G’Kar asked if anyone knew where Mr. Garibaldi was. JMS
responded to a request
from our own Lady T for romance for Mr. G with “Garibaldi who?”

The second is that to Delenn and others Sheridan’s fate is important.
To Kosh #2…it
is irrelevant. For Mr. Garibaldi…it is relevent to G’kar and Marcus
and others but to
Carthagia…..he hasn’t got a clue who Garibaldi is….so we get the
“Who?” response.

So what is relevant does not depend on who you ask but what you
think is relevant.
Does that clear it up?

spirit in so many ways, right you are, I have not caught up. In fact, I
came home to find that our devoted ranks have overflowed a folder,
so now I can download the first and read the tail end (why does
Captain Simian come to mind as I type, “tail”? Could it be the G-Mon
is too long absent?).
As for that home cooking to which I see reference, Mongoose
confesses to indulging in many Cajun pot parties this week past:
Take one large pot, lots of pepper, onions and Tabasco, and toss in
whatever else suits the fancy: seafood or land meat, plus
compatible vegetables. Is it accident that I admire Garibaldi the
cook?

Mongoose…….

Maybe we should all take a vacation from the station……everyone
seems to be leaving.

I didn’t understand it until watching A & E this evening and heard
(and almost fell of my chair)
that the Titanic was owned by the WHITE STAR line…….

We do have a parallel here…..we know from the alternate future when
Sinclair tells Michael
to get Ivanova off the station in case it came to the end….that there
is not enough transports
to evacuate the station…much as there was not enough life boats on
the Titanic.

Wow-what’s with the new folder – I haven’t finished the last one
yet. It is so much fun to read all of your witty things.

A while back, there was some speculation on the mythic reason for
Mr. G’s existance. For me, I think it is great that Sheridan and Delenn
and Sinclair are “The One” and all is well in the story line but as for
Mr. G, I think his purpose is to be human – not god-like. (Okay, yes I’m
an avid member of the line, all sacrilege aside) But, back to the
premise, G’s whole point in the show is to be “the friend”. He
supports everyone and I think these first few episodes reallly show
his importance to others in that role – like Marcus, G’Kar, even Zach
responding to his absence.
Can’t wait to see your next top ten.

Perchance this does not belong on the Garibaldi board. Mongoose
saw latest episode this morning (forgot title, one word, starts with
“s”). Zach behaved in a most exemplary manner. Showed loyalty.
Rescued and took care of our G-Mon. Mongoose might just have to
rethink this character, not such a lizard, after all.
But I did not like what happened to G’Kar one tiny little bit. Bad,
bad JMS! Most bad JMS! Did he not read, “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s

Spoiler lines:

 

 

 

 

 

Perchance this does not belong on the Garibaldi board. Mongoose
saw latest episode this morning (forgot title, one word, starts with
“s”). Zach behaved in a most exemplary manner. Showed loyalty.
Rescued and took care of our G-Mon. Mongoose might just have to
rethink this character, not such a lizard, after all.>>

Mongoose, dear — look at who’s been training Lizard Boy. At least he
can learn. )Or he had no choice.) And he knows the Egyptian God of
Frustration, too.

“Why is it ‘thin air’?”
“Why is it a ‘long story’?”

Is there a list somewhere of “why is it?”s?

hottest board in B5 while the Battle of the Line was going on.

Shall we do something to Zack? What about Bester (I think that’s
him in G-Mons cell with the gas mask on). Why has the Psi-Corp
taken him. Is he the “plant” from Psi-corp that didn’t work? What is
this rage that is all comsuming? This is our board, in honor of our
Beloved Chief of Security! Let’s use it!

I have not nearly the wit of our beloved Mongoose and others who do
top ten lists, but I found myself the last few weeks trying to deal
with my G-mon withdrawal symptoms by scanning episode lists
searching for any sign of the man. I got to thinking about what the
summaries might sound like if the eps were written by certified G-
mon-ites. Here’s a start. Edit and add at will.
Carolyn

The Hour of the Wolf
In the wee hours of the morning strange howling sounds are heard
coming from the quarters of
Security Chief Michael Garibaldi. Whispers around the station say
“The Line is moving”.

What Ever Happened to Mr. Garibaldi?
Investigations into Mr. Garibaldi’s disappearance uncover a cult
calling themselves G-mon-ites, and conducting a bizarre ritual
called The Line outside the Chief ‘s quarters. They claim the Chief is
in his quarters. They say he does it of his own free will. But no one
answers….

The Summoning
Although the Chief hasn’t been seen, friends are receiving
invitations to a dinner, and wonderful
smells emanate from Garibaldi’s quarters. Members of The Line
dicuss party crashing techniques, and strange noises are heard in the
ventilation shaft.

Falling Toward Apotheosis
Riots nearly erupt on the station when the G-mon-ites declare their
chief a god. Jealousy leads
Londo and Kosh to an uneasy alliance.

The Long Night
Exhausted, the chief appears at the station house, mumbling about
the Battle of the Line. Franklin is called in, as the command crew
fears for the Chief’s sanity.

The Illusion of Truth

Zack and Marcus begin to
investigate, and discover what really happened to the Kawasaki.

Here’s my contribution.

It is found that the women of the Line have developed new means of
reaching their beloved
Chief….Earth Force Technologies is worried that these “lines of
communication” could be
used by the enemy and send Bester to investigate. Upon arrival he
told to do a physical
impossiblity but in more lady-like terms and he leaves the station
wondering if maybe being
a mundane might not be that bad at all.

Oh Balance7, how could you be so concerned with only the physical
appearances of our beloved G-mon? I truly feel, and I think the
others in the line will back me up here, that the physical appearance
of our main Man is of secondary importance. As long as he is in good
health and in one piece he is gorgeous to me. I even like the beard
stubble– I know it makes him look kind of scruffy but I like that in
a man, not everyday of course, but once in a while it is very
attractive (to me). Besides, the line is composed of women around
the Universe who have come to love Michael Garibaldi for the
incredible person he is and not just for his physical attributes,
which are pretty darn great, if you ask me :) But they are not the
reason we wait in line for the *Man* and drool and dream at every
opportunity.
True love is blind to slight imperfections in physical beauty and
therefore should not be overly concerned with slight changes. Take
the G-mon for who he is not just what he looks like.

In love with the G-mon and in the Line by choice…

Ah Ha, now its out TheLadyT loves others…aren’t we fickle 😉
I have had many ‘loves’ on TV and the movies, but only one
at a time…:-)
Different types for different reasons, my last ‘love’ was John
Delancy because at the time I liked ‘Q’ which probably is the
reason I don’t like Picard because he was always picking on him!
I really think the name Jean Luc Picard means ‘sexy name’ in French.
But the man himself, sorry, absolute ‘O’
BTW, if you were by the cafe last night I found out that Jerry Doyle
had played Bruce Willis’s brother on Moonlighting, now everyone
is trying to find the copies he was in…something about Shakespeare
was mentioned, I think they did Taming of the Screw, I never saw
the
show but maybe some of you have?

I am going to dare to voice my humble opinion. I think the G-mon is
worried about himself. He wakes up in med-lab and finds out he has
been missing for 2 weeks and he can’t remember it. Only some
dream like things that he is not sure are true or not. So he can’t
even trust himself because he does not know what happened and he
always likes to know what is happening. In the end the G-mon will
prevail because he is after all perfect.

Hi all, hope the Holiday treated you far better than it did me…..
I got to spend the entire day sicker than a dog. (I’m much
better now.) So much for cooking my first Turkey…. my man got to
cook his first turkey this year. (How ’bout that for understanding me
who can cook! Now if he only looked like Garibaldi!)

I don’t know if this needs any spoiler space but here goes-














– After watching Summonings again, for the 2nd time, I caught a
part I’m not sure I heard the first time ( I was understandably
distracted by the sight of the G-mon wrapped in plastic wrap and
was not really listening to the TV, rather, *Drooling* is the
operative term I’m looking for.) Just after Zack told the shuttle
team to pick up the lifepod the shot flashes to our beloved Chief and
we see him lying on the platform wrapped in plastic and apparently
asleep….sigh…. oh, sorry. The next thing we hear is a computer voice
saying “Contact is initiated, Begin program.” Garibaldi opens his
eyes and then we see him on a gurney in the hallway of the station. I
submit to you, my friends of the line, that our man may have been
programmed by the PsiCorp for an assassination or some other sort
of sabotage and his edginess may be part of his struggling to
overcome the programming or even them implementation of said
program. I hate to bring this up but there has been some comment on
his behavior and his jumpiness while in Sheridan’s office. Of course,
I could be completely wrong and Garibaldi is looking for someone to
blame his ordeal on…. I really hope I am wrong and he does not have
the possibility of going the way of Ms. Winters ( I’m sure you
remember her programming by PsiCorp and her returning to Earth for
evaluation).

Any other ideas out there? Better ones I hope.

Pac’m’ara rejoice in chorus.
Spend a little time in stasis,
And the Station goes to blazes.

Hail, the Resurrected Hero,

Follow him in Grey apparel–
We’re still over a Min-barrel.

10. “Invasion of the Banana Snatchers” leaves you wondering if the
real Garibaldi is off somewhere wrapped in a giant Shadow pod, and
the Chief on the Station is a clone copy.

9. You dream of Shao Lin advising, “The Monkey in the Middle is
looking for you.”

8. You go online to scan for a recipe for banana-cocoanut turkey
stuffing.

7. You find that the Primate Directive wins you no merit promotion
potential.

6. Your significant other is concerned about your increasingly-
frequent use of the expression, “monkey-lovin’.”

5. You could care less about Michael Jackson’s marriages, but
wonder whatever became of Bubbles the Chimp.

4. With “George of the Jungle” and “Lancelot Link, Secret Chimp” in

3. Your computer reports lost clusters in Sector PG-13.

Porcupines use their quills for defense not offense. The “porcupine”
part of his
personality is to keep people at bay until he’s convinced himself he
can trust them.

You just have to be very carefull handling porcupines and I would
imagine that would
apply to trying to get close to the G-mon. I think the word fits him.

How do two porcupines make love?

 

 

 
Very carefully.

I agree that “mature” is a better adjective than “married” but it
sounds too close to “matronly” in my cerebral clearing house to be
comfortable- (just got back from my HS 20th reunion and that’s a
sensitive spot!)

Back a few there were the top ten lines. Just when does our beloved
chief say, “Aw, nuts”? I can practically hear the line but don’t know
the episode.

If G-mon has an implanted personality, could Bester remove it? That
would allow “the little creep” to achieve some sort of non-offensive
status on B5.

Also, before you send anyone to the end of the line, remember,
THAT’S MY SPOT!!!!!

Also that what appeared to be a white guardian was actually the

Specials, specials….

10 “Rudolph, the Gray-Nosed Reindeer”: Cutesy tale of how a
Minbari pack animal saves Santa from the Shadows.

9. “How Mr. Morden Stole Christmas”: Santa keeps asking kids,
“What do you want?”–until little Johnny asks for a 5-megaton
nuclear warhead.

8. “Winnie-the-Pooh and Garibaldi, Too”: “Bearbylon” 5’s
hyperactive security chief marshals the hunny-snatching Heffalumps
and Woozels to defeat an even more formidable enemy on the Three-
Acre Station: Minbarney.

7. “Eight Days is Enough”: In the wake of B5’s expatriation,
Ivanova must enlist the G-Mon’s aid in obtaining untainted Menorrah
candles for Chanukkah. His sources come through in a major way–
the Shadows close in, but the candles burn on, and on, and on.

6. “Away in a Manger”: Well, figures Garibaldi, that’s one way to
smuggle G’Kar past those treacherous Centauri.

5. “Santa Claus is Coming to Dock”: Garibaldi must intervene
when a riot erupts in the Ambassadorial wing–because no one
wants the perceived indignity of being quartered next to reindeer.

4. “It’s a Wonderful Strife”: Reflecting on his life and losses,
Garibaldi’s seriously considering becoming PPG toast when an angel
appears in the form of Jeff Sinclair, and shows him an image of the
world had he not been in it. The universe shows its amazing
capacity to balance itself, and essentially, nothing changes,
President Santiago still dies, Franklin still has to conquer his own
demons, Talia Winters still leaves the station, and Ivanova still
cultivates coffee beans in the hydroponic garden. This leads to a
major change in the Chief’s pessimistic outlook: Instead of
hesitating to act on his instincts, and merely reacting to crisis
after crisis, he comes out of the “dream” vowing to make a proactive
difference. Let’s just say, ain’t no Shadow, Vorlon or ne-er-do-well
better get in his way.

3. “A Grey Sector Christmas”: Investigating the chain of
seemingly-impossible disappearances among the Station’s cultivated
trees, Garibaldi finds a colony of tinker-happy elves in a toy-
building commune in Grey Sector. But the real shock is when they
hand him a red suit and hail him as their long-lost leader.

2. “Santa Claus Conquers the Vorlons”: They kill him, but there’s
no defeating his army of toys.

1. “The 13 Days of Christmas”: When Garibaldi receives 13
greeting cards, 13 data crystals, 13 fruitcakes and 13 copies of the
“Duck Dodgers Director’s Cut,” he wraps himself in a cellophane
cocoon and doesn’t emerge until Day 14–claiming he can’t remember
a thing.

Consensus in one corner of DC is that the G-mon wasn’t implanted by
Psi Corp with a hidden personality, but rather was programmed to be
someone’s eyes and ears: and not necessarily by/for Psi Corp. If Psi
Corp could have probed him they wouldn’t have bothered with
continually badgering him with “what did you see”, etc…and, if they
couldn’t probe him, implanting him would have been VERY hard. I
think the shadows droppped (or were forced to drop) him, and
someone picked him up before Psi Corp got to him…maybe like the
Vorlons. Whatever the reason and whatever was done to him, Lorien
isn’t worried about him.

You know it’s funny that everyone keeps saying that the actors
don’t want the blooper reels shown…yet with the B-5 crowd, they
(the actors) bring them with them to the conventions.

Franklin brought two with him to a Maryland con last Spring and
they are a hoot. There is a really great one where Boxleitner
answers his com on his hand standing among the rest of the
group and instead of saying Sheridan…he says Sinclair.

One by one the actors around him loose it….the reaction
on his face when he realizes what he said….it’s priceless.

10. Holiday MinBarbie–Comes with interchangeable human and

9. Teenage Mutant Ninja Narns–Action figures with a lifetime
guarantee that their shells will never crack.

8. Mad Doctor Mikey’s Incredible Creepy Crawler Thingmaker–Pour
PlastiGoop (TM) into supplied molds, bake, attach microchip and
watch them develop language skills!

7. Carrion Cuisinart–Grinds even bone and gristle, the perfect gift
for the gourmet Pac’m’ara.

6. “Lost in Hyperspace” Videogame–Can you find Garibaldi’s lifepod,
halt the advancing Vorlons, defeat the Shadows for another thousand
years, and steer the Jupiter II through the jumpgate to Earth, before
Lennier traces his roots and learns that human souls have been born
as Minbaris since the Robinsons crash-landed on their homeworld?

5. Garibaldi’s Raiders–Action hero squad billed as “…the fighting
squad the Rangers call when they need help.”

4. Bananas in Encounter Suits–Learn the real reason no one has ever
seen a Vorlon.

3. Monopoly 2260–Role-playing game pitting the Narns against the
Centauri, the Shadows against the Vorlons, the League of Non-
Aligned Worlds against each other, and the Mad Emperor against
everybody.

2. GROPO Joe–Updated version of the “GI Joe” soldier doll, with one
distinctive difference: No matter what game you play with it, this
doll is guaranteed to die by the end of the episode.

Garibaldi can provide another kind of entertainment. The next 8

At the Con I attended, the ones in charge gave the old party line
about actors and residuals and “we can’t show them, etc.” and in
strode Richard Biggs with the blooper reel and the crowd went wild.
He was so accomodating and seemed sincerely pleased to be giving
everyone attending a good time. He sure didn’t ask for residuals at
the door. (However, he did come down hard on a vendor selling
unauthorized cast photos.)

Back to the bloopers, there were several really cute ones of
Garibaldi and Talia. It made them look like a fun couple. When
Garibaldi pulls the bad-implanted-personality Talia out of
Sheridan’s office, the door was stuck and he had to get her out
sideways. Which reminds me, there was a great one of Majel Barrett
walking into a stuck non-opening door. You can hear a stage hand say,
“Sorry about that” to which she smoothly responds, “Don’t worry, I’m
used to it”.

And ladies of the line, Garibaldi lying back on his bed saying, “This is
me picturing sex with my second wife”….and so on….great mugs on
that sequence.

In Falling, Garibaldi definitely has a monkey on his back. Could Lyta
or even Ivanova scan him for an implant? (Of course, personally, I
would like to have him meet some excellent woman who senses
there is something amiss and contracts Bester to fix it; there’s got
to be something for Bester to do.) Zack seems to be the only one
anxious about him. Where are his friends when he needs them?
Garibaldi, in the past, often had good hunches. Is he the only one who
sees that Sheridan has returned as a zealot?

Okay, I know I went on too long but hey, it’s my birthday and I wish I
got a Bearabaldi or at least a new B5 novel for a present. As it is,

First, Happy Belated Birthday Capersil. As I always say “Another one

I watched “Falling” again (uninterupted this time) mostly just to
catch the little grin our Beloved Chief gives at the end when he and
Ivanova are talking (kinda lights up his face, don’t it). But I too was
wondering why he was given the medical going over when Sheridan
wasn’t, and why everybody has their doubt about him when Sheridan
comes back with some stranger. I noticed nobody gave him hugs upon
his return (I volunteer!!!).

To change the subject; if we really feel frisky, lets move the line
(temporarily mind you) to outside the Great Makers office. I’m sure
that we could “influance” his mind about the pickle he’s put the G-
mon in. In Washington DC its called lobbying. It would be fun to
create a story line about it and see if he joins us. Just imagine what
some of the news flashes would be with the writing talents of Lady

thought it both ironic and appropriate (giggle).

CC: TheLadyT, MONGOOSEPC, Jms at B5

Thanks so much for creating the Church of Joe website. I’ve had a
great time checking it out, and am thoroughly enjoying reading the
stuff I’ve downloaded on The Great Maker.

However, I’ve got two questions:

First, what are the qualifications for sainthood? Using the one saint
listed–Steve Grimm, Keeper of the holiest of holy sites, The
Lurker’s Guide–as an example, I can see that anyone will have a hard
time matching that. But, for future reference to those of us who
wish to dream, could you post the general qualifications for
sainthood on your site?

Second, would you be interested in adding a cult of acolytes to your
website? The G-mon-ites are a dedicated group of Garibaldi-lovers
who have created a marvelous phenomenon on AOL’s B5 board known
as The Line. We have even gotten The Great Maker to participate
(twice) in our adventures. In addition to The Line, we have the G-
mon Top Ten lists, begun by our creative Mongoose and perpetuated
by other creative G-mon-ites. We are also a close-knit and loving
group, and our folder on AOL is more active than the AskJMS folder!
I’m sure there are many Garibaldi-lovers out there who would enjoy
our G-mon Tales and Lists and, as a dedicated JMS-worshipper, I’d
like to see them congregate where they belong–in the Church of Joe,
dedicated to The One Who Created It All. If you’re interested, or
would just like more info on the G-mon-ites, please let me know.

With Light and Love,

On the first gripe of repeats, Straczynski gave to me
A Vorlon ambassador named Kosh.

On the second gripe of repeats, Straczynski gave to me
Two Psi Corps rebels,
And a Vorlon ambassador named Kosh.

On the third gripe of repeats, Straczynski gave to me
Three all called “The One,”
Two Psi Corps rebels,
And a Vorlon ambassador named Kosh.

On the 13th gripe of repeats, Straczynski gave to me
Some semblance of a promise that I’ll be alive to see my destiny,
Twelve advancing Vorlons,
Eleven Shadows creeping,
Ten Whitestars shining,
Nine Centauri plotting,
Eight Narns a-slaying,
Seven Old Ones “Zog”-ing,
Six Rangers dueling,
Five Pac’m’ara,
Four discarnate sentients,
Three all called “The One,”
Two Psi Corps rebels,
And a Vorlon ambassador named Kosh.

to be threatened or tricked into wearing a seat-belt. In fact, I’m sure
he doesn’t wear one if I’m not in the car with him or threatening to

Will probably pay h-e-double-toothpicks for this, did someone
ask for sects?:

10. Messianic Joedaism: While embracing the traditional tenets of
the Universe according to Straczynski, this faction maintains that
the One who Was, Is, and Always Will Be is the One who will deliver
both Human and Minbari out of the hands of Shadows and Vorlons
alike–as prophesied in the Book of Revelations, Michael the
Deliverer.

9. Joermons: Polygamist sect founded when a disillusioned human
met Emperor Cartaggia and decided that Jesus was a Centauri who
ascended to godhood and was given Earth to rule.

8. Joey’s Witnesses: They saw Delenn rescue B5 from President’s
Clark’s martinets. They saw Sheridan resurrected from the dead.
They saw the demon Vorlon banished by the True Essence of Kosh.
Don’t dare visit the “for more information” WEB address on their
tracts, or you’ll never have privacy again–boy, do they love to
testify!

7. Southern Joeys: Hanging on every word the Maker-Mon ever
scripted or proclaimed in an interview, these True Believers have
the distinction of being able to quote verbatim any passage and will
vehemently oppose anything but the most literal interpretation.
They’re also the only religious convention ever to overflow Babylon
5’s docking bays, jam Epsilon’s surface parking, form a “fellowship
lifeline” between the two, and scare the h-e-double-toothpicks out
of the advancing Vorlons by sheer numbers.

6. Joethalicism: Dedicated to high ritual, this sect maintains that
because Sheridan is technically dead, Delenn remains a virgin, and
her child is the transcended God made flesh: the reincarnation of
King David.

5. PresbyJoerianism: By far the most liberal faction, with tenets
established by democratic consensus, this group
accepts anyone regardless of origin, species, heritage or social
status, with one notable xception: They can’t seem to vote
decisively on whether Bester should be ordained or condemned as the
AntiChrist.

4. Joepiscespalian: Using a fish as its banner symbol, this faction
rejects the hyperdulia (veneration) given Delenn by the Joethalics,
and insists the kid is Lennier’s.

3. Joemethodists: The diametric opposites of PresbyJoerians, this
group believes that each species better cleave unto its own, lest the
Universe face annihilation to punish genetic corruption. When
Sheridan proposed to Delenn, they proclaimed Armaggeddon and
declared that only the elect will survive the clash between Shadows
and Vorlons.

2. JoereKrishna: Under accusations of being a cult, this group
pointed to the line outside Garibaldi’s quarters, noted that bald
heads have a lot of appeal in sci-fi fandom, and declared itself
nothing more than a faction of G-Mon-Ites who love to wear robes
and chant.

1. Joe-Mon-Ites: Like the G-Mon-Ites, these folks insist that they
pursue a philosophy, not a religion. The fundamental difference is
that G-Mon-Ites do not venerate celibacy.

Oooh, Tapestry, I don’t have any inside info on whether it’s MIcheal
or Marcus, or whether it happens at all, but I could see the G-mon
and the Doc passing as a couple. There a longstanding caring
relationship between them which would make it quite believeable.
And as far as MR. G’s “leaning” , I would suggest that there’s
something attractive about a man whose love spans genders. Others
will disagree I know, and I don’t wish to open a long discussion ala
the Ivanova folder, but IMO you love the person – soul, essence,

No wonder I woke up at 4 a.m. It was the reverberation of the
entire line singing the “Garibaldi Chorus.” (Hmmm, Garibaldi chorus
line?)
Too cool, Caper–you have called to attention the amazing
diversity of the name itself. Mongoose recalls a Bugs Bunny opera
spoof in which Elmer Fudd proclaims, “Kill the Rabbit, kill the
Rabbit, kill the Rabbit, kill the Rabbit!” “Garibaldi” fits the melody.
And dare Mongoose apply the G-Mon-Ite approach to Arlo Guthrie’s
classic, “Alice’s Restaurant Massacre”:
“You can get anything you want at Station House Restaurant
(except the G-Mon)….”
But somehow, nothing comes close to the power of that Garibaldi

okay folks … I draw the line at chinese food — tehre is not way I can
get those orders straight — Have YOU ever tried to read your ticket
at a chinese restaurant???????

I just spoke to Wien Li, and he is willing to bring a set up down here
for a buffet spread … it’s gonna cost 17.3 credits PER PLATE, but
soup, tea and the fortune cookies are free. I negotiated for all the
standard fried rices( Chicken, plain, pork, shrimp, beef, spoo and
breen) and got him to agree to bringing his special (I never have had
the courage to ask what was in that).

The Japanese Restaurant next door is settting up competition with
another buffet — try the deepfried crabs (the little ones about the
size of a .25 credit piece) — they taste like potato chips, the “meat
on a stick” is great and they are gonna set up a BBQ (Mongolian
style). Tako is gonna charge a flat fee of 14.5 credits and it’s all
you can eat. oh yeah – Kirin and saki are extra

I’ve order up 3 large coffee pots and I talked to maintenance they are
gonna rig us a “hot/boiling” water line just for making tea (order 3
cases of mized teas – Yes I order Earl Grey and pekoe and some Red
zinger, etc.).

Dear Garibaldi’s women – I was playing trivia the other day and I
missed the question, “Garibaldi was friends with this character’s
father.” The answer was “Lianna Kemmer.” I looked her up in the
Lurker’s guide and found out that she was in the episode “Survivors”
which I looked up. Now, I know that I saw this episode but it was a
long time ago. Her father was killed and Garibaldi was responsible
and that is why he drinks right? Was there anymore to the story? I
really hate to think I have forgotten something about our man. Can
you believe I missed a Garibaldi question? Did everybody see Jerry
Doyle on Vortex last Friday? He is as cute as Mr. Garibaldi! What a
smile. Now if Bruce Boxleitner would only let him talk.

Her father was killed and Garibaldi *thought* he was responsible.
He’d already been drinking, but Lianna’s father got him straightened
out for a bit, then BOOM. He crawled back into the bottle for a long
time. Jump forward 10 years or so. She’s now Major Lianna Kemmer,
chief of presidential security. With a *huge* chip on her shoulder.
She came ahead to make sure everything was secure for the
President’s visit (Santiago still), someone sets a bomb, she takes
the investigation away from Garibaldi, someone frames Garibaldi,
etc., etc. At the Lurker site, on the “Survivors” page, there should be
a button for synopsis. That is a blow-by-blow of the specific action.
Better’n me trying it, even though I saw it last about a month ago.

Okay, folks–as I state in my reply to Brian, I’m in search of
volunteers….

I’ll write the History of the G-mon-ites.
Mongoose–Could you write up a lead-in for (and possibly assemble
all of) The Top Ten Lists? (possibly including the G-mon’s Ten
Commandments separately or as part of your write-up)
Capercaillie–Could you assemble all the music?
Could someone assemble all the Tales of The Line? (I have some of
the one’s that got lost, when stuff dropped off from the other folder,
already downloaded if that helps)

As the aspiring Patron Saint of G-mon-ites, I will do as much as I
possibly can to see this thing happen! (but i need help…..)

Thanks so much for replying! I was beginning to wonder when I’d get
a reply from you, especially since I got a note from The Great Maker
(Himself!) the very next day (grin).

Here are some suggestions I have for you regarding the Cult of the G-
mon:

— Could we have our own button?
— A brief history of the G-mon-ites–I’ll try to keep it under 250
words
— A list G-mon-ites from AOL, with the option of adding “sub-G-
mon-ites” from outside AOL (this list *could* get out of hand, so it
might need a hotlink–we’re discovering more and more “lurkers” in
our folder every day)
— A Tales of The Line hotlink
— A Top Ten hotlink
— A Misc. hotlink (lately some G-mon-ites have been composing
songs for our G-mon, sung to Christmas music–in the spirit of the
holidays, of course–and I’m sure other things could fall into this
category as well)

The talents of the G-mon-ites amaze and astound me daily. I do not
exagerate when I say that our little folder is filled with Love,
Humor, Commeraderie, and just plain Fun. I am thrilled and honored,
and in awe, to be a part of them. Although I’d love to add some of our
G-mon stories–sent via e-mail through The Line–I realize that
would make the COJ no longer JMS-safe. Not that He’d actually come
to church, mind you, but COJ members can always dream… ;^)

In what format would you like the text files sent to you? I know
*nothing* of html coding, but I can provide text. When would you
like the stuff? How often would you like updates? We all have
lives, and with the holiday’s coming up….but I’ll see what I can do
about getting volunteers from The Line to help assemble it–perhaps
we even have a G-mon-ite or two who could code to your
specifications.

Again, Thank You. I’ll be posting both your note and this one to the
Garibaldi folder on AOL’s B5 Board.

Hey all. With all the Christmas cheer being spread around, just
thought I’d add
my 2 credits worth. Hope you like :-)

To the tune of “Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer”….

You know Susan and Sheridan and Stephen and Sinclair
G’Kar and Delenn and Londo with his hair.
But can you tell me
Of the famous Michael Garibaldi?

Michael, our sexy G-Mon
He is quite a mystery.
And if you ever meet him
You will fall down on your knees.

All of the G-Mon-ites say
Give our Mon a little love
But HE never lets poor Michael
Show us what he’s really made of.

Then one fearful frightful day
Shadows took him far away.
Michael with his smile so bright
Lost to us into the night.

Oh how we missed our G-Mon
But now he’s back, good as new?
Michael, our sexy G-Mon
Will we ever know what happened to you?

Happy holidays everybody!Subj: Re:Another song for the GMon

To the tune of “We Three Kings”

We the line of G-Monites are,
In this hall we’ve waited so far
Bribing big bucks, climbing air ducts;
Still that door’s not ajar.

Oh…Garibaldi, our dear chief,
Only you can ease our grief.
Turn our crying into sighing
Serve us all your cake of beef.

Garibaldi is our man
What none dare tackle, he sure can.
Fists or gun, he’s the One,
Who needs that old Sheriden?

Oh-OHH…G-Mon Michael, you’re the king
Whose praises the Line does gladly sing.
Let our laughter shake the rafters–
What’s your *first* most favorite thing?

It was my turn to go get more chocolate for me and my fellow
songwriters, Capercille, and Fafayin. Even though writing songs for
our beloved G-Mon is a labor of love, it takes LOTS of chocolate.

The whole station is talking about the G-Monites. The Drazi can’t
understand how those wearing purple and green can get along. The
Mimbari say that even though they do not inderstand, they have
never seen such large numbers of ‘true seekers’. They are impressed
by our patience and singing of praises for our G-Mon. The Centauri
keep mumbling about how ineffecient the humans are. They could
have the line moving six times faster. The Pac’ma’ra were
interested until someone explained that the term ‘the Chief was dead
on his feet’ was just an expression. The telepaths are warning each
other to stay AWAY from the Line. Even a P12 couldn’t screen out
the emotion. The Narns remain quite confused by it all. Garibaldi
must have read something in the Book of J’quan that they missed.

Say-hey, if the Church of Joe can do it, do the G-Mon-Ites refuse
diversity?
10. Jerry’s Choir Kids: Hey, you don’t have to be old enough to join
the Line, to be eligible for the Glee Club.

9. Galloping Garibaldies: Not really a sect, just devoted to cooking
gourmet fellowship dinners.

8. G-Monkeys: The Jerry Doyle/”Captain Simian” cross-over fandom,
not to be confused with….

7. G-Monkees: The male Garibaldi fan contingent who practice
celibacy while waiting for the women to exit the line.

6. “Bananas in Pajamas”: Never mind the details. This “Captain
Simian” fan faction is *not* for the entire family.

5. Garibaldi’s Guerillas: Paramilitary commando sect that initiated
the use of such creative pyrotechnics as plastic explosive
cellophane wrap, LRBACs (long-range, ballistic aerial coconuts) and
PBGs (peeled-banana guns).

4. New Age Garibanovas: Gender-neutral, liberal sect granting equal
icon status to Ivanova.

3. “Daffies”: Off-beat cult faction affording secondary God of
Frustration veneration to “Duck Dodgers,” whom followers frequently
invoke for for deliverance when the line gets long enough to try the
patience of a saint.

2. Mikey’s Angels: They’re gorgeous. They know their stuff. But
they don’t quite have the common sense to figure out that unlike the
denizens of the Line, they *never* see Mikey.

1. Transcendental G-Mon-Ites: Cult faction so determined to get

OH my! MONGOOSE now has me contemplating whether we may have
invoked a Moebius phenomenon. (For anyone unfamilar, a Moebius
strip has only one side and one edge – therefore its “Inside” and its

All this creativity (plus the dearth of new episodes) inspires me to
ask again a question I posed a while back.

The G-Mon asks some truly insightful “Why is it?” questions, like his
“Why is it always a long story?” to Franklin in ‘Walkabout’, or “Why
is it always ‘thin air’?” in “Grey 17″.

Has the G-Mon enlightened the Faithful with other instructive “Why
is it?”-s?

This seeker humbly thanks you.

Today is my first day reading this board — y’all are too much! I
wasn’t sure what the line was, but now, I’m honored to be allowed at
the end — after all good things come to those who wait!

Okay folks, here’s a list of names I’ve pulled from this folder and the
last. However, just because your name is here, does NOT mean it
will be sent to the COJ–it just means that you’ve posted and
expressed a certain degree of affection for our G-mon.

If you want your name submitted to the COJ as a G-mon-ite (COJ
membership not required), please e-mail me at GmonAPS@aol.com (a
special account I’ve set up just for G-mon-ite mail) and let me know
where you stand, as a G-mon-ite, whether it be in The Line, among
the G-monkees, or on the sidelines as an observer or in the chorus;
there’s also the Ductwork Crowd, if you want to join those “dusty in
the ductwork” (grin); the Guardians, if you would like to join the
Order of Michaelines (did I spell that right?); and finally the tail-
enders–the Spacesuit Bunch–who didn’t get in line early enough to
hang out in the hallway. Also, let me know if you’re already a COJ
member (if you want to be a member, go to the COJ website and SIGN
UP!).

There are 77 names on this list–DO YOU HEAR US JMS!!!!

<<6. “Bananas in Pajamas”: Never mind the details. This “Captain
Simian” fan faction is *not* for the entire family>>

(in between giggles…)

I *knew* there was a reason I was called “Banana Woman” in college
:-)

<<Yes, welcome my dear! Grab your spacesuit and take your place in
line!>>

Hi all!
Thanks for the warm welcome. I confess, I’ve been lurking for some
time now, but could not stop laughing long enough to post a coherent
message.

It was “Jingle Bells” that got me, you know. I whistle the durn song
all year ’round (sigh, it’s the only song I *can* whistle). Now that I
can truthfully say, “I am not either!” whistling a Christmas song, I
find I can’t get past the first 3 notes because I start smiling as soon
as the word “G-Mon-ites” pops into my head.

Christmas will never be the same again. And I mean that in a good
way!

Mel

<< All of the Top Ten lists, you ask. No big deal, just gather together
all of the Top Ten lists, assemble them, combine them into a
mayhaps a text file, send them along, just all of them.>>

Uh, Mongoose, I may be able to help you out. See, while I was lurking
I was also downloading :-)
I have most, if not all, of the top ten lists already in a single file
(but I don’t know who did which ones). I could (maybe possibly if the
cyberspace gods favor me this week) send the file to you. Let me
know.

<<I am pretty sure I still hold the last place in line (as in “last but
ever after first”) but Marty is most welcome to take the spot in
front of me. Welcome to the line.>>

Capercaille nice to meet you! Khan is so glad that there is some
else out here…these suits get kind of chilly don’t they.

Khan,
Who hopes our section of the line moves inside soon….Subj: New

My fellow G-monites, I e-mailed B5 Online to request a new folder
before we start losing our posts. He responded in record time (about
30 seconds) and said that he would. Keep an eye out for Garibaldi
#3!!!!!

Thank you, Troy :-)
