Professor Pacoli: Aziz! Light!
Billy: "Aziz! Light!"
After Leeloo has fallen into the taxi and is pleading with Korben for help, she sees a sign that says "Please help" and instantly understands how those two words are pronounced. For her, the alphabet should appear as gibberish and, even if she were able to realize that she was looking at writing and surmise the meaning, she should have had no idea how to pronounce it.
In the theatrical version the first time Leeloo is revealed (in the lab machine), her breasts are visible. In TV versions a well placed control panel maintains her modesty (blocks the view of her breasts).
