okay, so this kind of thing has been done before. But as far as i can tell, it's always "jayne's2 or "kaylees" or whatever, and seperated up into a character. What i'm hoping people can do is post their favourite quotes from firefly, be it 1 good one or 480 good ones. You see i want to get a tee shirt made with a firefly quote on, but here's the thing i don't have all teh quotes in one place, if i get it made and then find a better one, imagine how gutted i will be, so please aid me with this, i will be ever greatful.

Please help, cos as far as i can tell, usually, us Browncoats are the most helpful folk around!

I've got a few quotes here: http://www.destinything.com/id129.html and there are plenty of sites that have even more.

Share your pain though - I wanted choice quotes for each character when I was making my Sin City styled posters ( http://www.destinything.com/id130.html). It's so hard to choose!

I can never resist a request to share quotes!

"You want to meet the real me now?"


"Yeah, but she's our witch, so cut her the hell down!"


just a couple of my favourite short quotes (you couldn't really get the entire scene from Safe onto a tee-shirt... )

Oh, there are so many! Let's see...

"Captain, don't you know that kissing girls makes you sleepy?"

"My food is problematic."

"Also, I can kill you with my brain."

But the best one for a t-shirt, I think, would be:

"No power in the 'verse can stop me."

"Possible you're not recalling some of his previous plans."

"Just once I'd like things to go according to the Gorram plan!"

"My kind of life don't last long, Shepherd, so I 'spect I'm invested in makin' good sport of it whilst I can."

"I'm smellin' a lotta IF comin' off this plan!"

"Everyone dies alone."

"If I ever kill you, you'll be awake, you'll be facing me, and you'll be armed."

More when I think of them.

"Keep walking preacher"
"She's a thief and no good will come of her"
"What did y'all order a dead guy for?"

"Every body always gets the better of us - that's what makes us special" (or something like that)

"Also - I can kill you with my brain"


Have fun

I did a job, and I've had nothin' but trouble since I did it, not to mention more than a few unkind words as regards to my character, so let me make this abundantly clear: I do the job. And then I get paid. Go run your little world."

I feel like saying this to my boss on an almost daily basis. So far I've managed to resist.

Hi.

There exists an old thread in the archives with VERY MANY quotes. I don't have time to look it up now, but you should be able to find it. Actually, I think there were two.



The Real Me, First Officer of the Sereni-Tree

(The Real Me cannot currently receive messages from this site; he is not ignoring you. But he CAN receive e-mail at realme@pcibroadband.net.)

Just searched "firefly quotes" in google and came up with loads of sites, eg:

http://www.thehallway.net/firefly.htm
http://www.angel-btvs.co.uk/firefly/quotes.php
http://www.browncoats.nl/bcquotes.htm

Also, the following thread here might be worth a look (and there's probably others):

http://www.fireflyfans.net/thread.asp?b=2&t=2806

The fact is, there are so many quotable lines in Firefly that the only way to pick your own faves is to watch the entire series with pen/paper to hand. Having said that, here are some that are quoted a lot:

Jayne: "Do you know what the chain of command is? It's the chain I go get and beat you with till you understand who's in rutting command here."

Wash (as dinosaur): "We will rule over all this land, and we will call it... This Land!"

Mal: "We have done the impossible, and that makes us mighty."

You can also try here: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0303461/quotes

Here's a few of my favs that comes from the link:

"Wash:I'd say worth a little risk.
Jayne: Yeah, that was some pretty risky sittin' ya did there.
Wash: That's right, of course. Because they wouldn't arrest me if we got boarded. I'm just the pilot. I could always say that I was flying the ship by accident." Gotta love Wash.


" If wishes were horses, we'd all be eatin' steak. " I said this quote to my 13 yr old neice once and I got a weird look from her.

"It smells like crotch." I say this everytime my sister cooks something.

"Look, they got boy whores. Isn't that thoughtful?"

"May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one." My all time fav!

I like Spoongirltrinity's suggestions. How about this:

Large letters: No power in the 'verse can stop me
Very small print underneath: (Also, I can kill you with my brain)

Picture of Serenity on the back and you're sorted.

All lot of the good quotes are too long or don't make sense out of context. However, you can't go wrong with Wash:

Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!

Oh my god. What can it be? We're all doomed! Who's flying this thing!? Oh right, that would be me. Back to work.

Sleepiness is weakness of character. Ask anyone.

We gotta go to the crappy town where I'm the hero!

Tell me! I am a large semi-muscular man. I can take it.

Do not fear me. Ours is a peaceful race, and we must live in harmony...

I'm thinking of a t-shirt that's not quite G-rated , so I gotta go with:

"Whoa.....good bible"

"I'll be in my bunk" (or alternatively, "we'll be in our bunk")

"Captain, can you take the bridge, 'cause........"

"so last night, when we made......."

"so, could this emergency be in somebody's......."

I think my mind lacks purity this evening.........

They don't like it when you shoot at 'em. I figured that out myself.' - Mal

'Also... I can kill you with my brain.' - River

You know what the chain of command is? It's the chain I beat you with until you do what your Gorram told! - Jayne

What did I tell you about barging into my shuttle?
That it's manly and impulsive?
- Mal and Inara

Nothin'! Unless this thing's made of magical wish-granting planks! - Jayne

'Aaargh! Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!' - Wash

Of course the best T-Shirt is simply this one:
