This scene was, from what I remember, intended as comic relief. Ambassador Mollari complains to the personnel running the space station of a large insect in his quarters; upon being told by the staff they have bigger problems than pest control Londo stabs the insect with his Coutari (Centauri short sword)- only to realize the bug he skewered isn't the same one he complained about earlier and rants, "There are more of you- THERE ARE MORE OF YOU!"
