-->'''Londo''': When they ran out of ships, they used guns. When they ran out of guns, they used knives, and sticks, and bare hands. They were magnificent. I only hope that when it is my time I may die with half as much dignity as I saw in their eyes at the end. They did this for two years. They never ran out of courage but in the end they ran out of time.

* Later in the series, Londo is in a {[plan}} that spun out into a GambitRoulette, with the fate of an entire world in the balance. An assassination attempt has gone awry, and could lead to the death of billions. Londo stands revealed as a traitor, and is helpless to stop the upcoming slaughter... until [[BreakTheCutie Vir steps in and finishes the assassination.]] Londo, realizing this is the first time Vir's ever compromised his morality, tells him that the knowledge that the act was necessary doesn't make up for him, but gently reminds Vir that the overwhelming guilt he feels means he's still a good person. The heartwarming really steps in, however, at FridgeBrilliance: by this point in the story, Londo's killed far better people for far less, with far fewer moral qualms than Vir. Londo has long since convinced himself that he is past redemption, but in a quiet moment where Vir is all but asking Londo to tell him the ends completely justify the means, Londo caringly but firmly tells him that they don't, because he knows better and wants what's best for Vir.

-->'''Emily''': Because cleaning up your place helps me to forget what a mess I've made of mine, and - when I sweep my floor, all I've done is sweep my floor. But, when I help you clean up your place, I am helping you.

* In ''And The Rock Cried Out, No Hiding Place'', Sheridan is [[TheChainsOfCommanding straining under the weight of his responsibilities]] as leader of the Army of Light. Reverend Dexter comes to pay him a visit and talks to him about what he's going through, and suggests that Sheridan should talk with [[LoveInterest Delenn]] about his troubles. Sheridan of course doesn't want to burden her, so Dexter tells him a story about how before they were married, his wife would always come to his house to help clean up, even though her house is a mess to. When he asked her why she bothered, she told him:

** At the event where Straczynski first told about this, he also spoke about how important the fans were to O'Hare and how they helped give him the strength to finish the job. After meeting and interacting with fans, he always returned better and stronger, knowing how all these people cared about what he did.

** And CMOA, when the camera pans down the line, and you see a Hasidic Jew standing next to a very obvious Muslim. Humanity may have problems in the future, but religious intolerance apparently isn't one of them.

** More sweet when you realise that, earlier in the episode, she was the only one who genuinely wanted to help him, by giving him the blood needed for his life-saving transfusion, without him knowing. It's nice watching the scene, knowing he made the right choice without even knowing it.

* The reunion between Jeffrey Sinclair and Catherine Sakai in ''To Dream in the City of Sorrows''. From the first time they see each other to Jeff quoting Tennyson at her like the DorkKnight he is, it's just the most freaking adorable thing. Their relationship didn't get nearly enough screen time or development, but this novel makes up for that and then some.

* Vir's position was originally seen as a joke. When Londo became more important in season 2 the politicians on Centauri Prime wanted to replace Vir with someone else. Londo told them and Vir's family that he had never had a more capable assistant and that if Vir left he would also leave. Doubles as a CrowningMomentOfFunny when Vir has his first hangover and Londo loudly asks him how quickly he can pack. Vir gets up to go to his quarter and pack, but Londo tells him to start with "this stuff" before explaining what he did.
-->'''Vir:''' But this is yours.

* From ''In the Beginning'', there is Londo describing humanity's continued determination and defiance in the face of fighting a completely unwinnable, genocidal war. The sheer admiration he has for humans because of this comes through in every line.
