“We have no telepaths among my people. A genetic oversight, I suppose. One which you could help correct. I am empowered to compensate you quite handsomely for your genetic background. The process would be either a direct mating, you and I… or a donation of vital cells from which we could clone a replicant. Yes, obviously the cloning is less efficient since we have to grow the clone, so payment would have to be proportionately smaller. And we’d still have to fuse your genes with our own and that would take even longer.”

If you haven’t seen this yet, JMS posted this video from the cast reunion dinner on his Facebook page.
“Totally forgotten that I’d snagged this quick iphone video from the B5 reunion dinner in Phoenix as Pat places a call to Bruce from the festivities. The dark-haired gentlemen at the end of the table is John Flinn, our director of photography for five years of B5. After all these years everybody can still make everybody else laugh. — in Phoenix, AZ.”
(Admin) I’m going rogue by posting this. Pat has been offline for a few days and doesn’t know we’re raising money yet…it should be a great surprise!
All proceeds are being equally divided and generously donated to Claudia Christian’s C3 Foundation and Patricia Tallman's Be A Santa Program.
It’s been a while since we shared this & there are lots of new faces here. Pat talks about the Joke Script between Londo and G’Kar.
(Admin) Wednesday is Pat’s birthday and I’d like you to visit http://beasanta.org/ to help make it special for her. I know it’s still 5 days away, but she’s enjoying a little R&R this weekend and I don’t expect to see her online. Hopefully we might be able to surprise her…
As most of you are aware, Pat runs Be A Santa, an annual holiday fundraising program for at-risk kids. Even though our favorite redhead isn’t officially launching Be A Santa 2013 for at least another month, I’d like your help surprising her with a birthday boost.
Last year, you all came together and exceeded the fundraising goals to make a huge difference in the lives of those teens! But you also reached out and touched Pat’s heart with your generosity. Be A Santa 2012 was, as she put it, “one of the best years for Be A Santa in recent memory.”
Penny Lane has grown since last year. There are more group homes and more teens.
Think for a moment about how much planning and energy you put into your holiday shopping. Now imagine how much energy and time it takes to shop for more than 100 teenagers!
I had the privilege of helping Pat with fundraising last year and, on the final evening before the gifts were delivered, filling boxes with gifts and stocking stuffers. She gets letters from each teen. Her “Santa’s List” is a giant 3-ring binder and let me tell you, she checks it much more than twice! Even with my help, she was still working late into the night.
This year, let’s not only reach our goal of $15,000, but let’s help Pat reach her goal early enough that she isn’t pushed to the wire…
She might not have a magic sleigh and reindeer to get her around this holiday season, but Pat has US—nearly 20,000 elves to help her spread a little holiday love with teenagers who are in desperate need of a little kindness this holiday season.
How much can we raise by Pat’s birthday? $500? $5000? Please join me in making this a birthday Pat will never forget…
