Everyone's heard of this: the thing were people changed lines of dialogue from the Star Wars movies to use or include the word pants for maximum comedic effect.

So I had the idea of doing the same for Firefly dialogue, and Serenity dialogue too, for that matter. Non-spoiler Serenity dialogue, obviously, limited to the trailers to begin with, I'd say.

Anyways, I stuck a few in the taglog here, and others added their own ideas. Wackiness ensued.



So now, here's the thread for it. To record the funniest 'pants' quotes we can muster for posterity.

Here's a few from the taglog right now:


SAFFRON "Have you heard the myth of Earth That Was? At first she had no pants..."

MAL "Now you can luxuriate in a nice jail cell, but if your hand touches pants, I swear by my pretty floral bonnet, I will end you."

Or... "I swear by my pretty floral pants I will end you."

SAFFRON "If you're done with supper... would you like me to wash your pants?"

INARA "What did I say to you about barging into my pants?"
MAL "That it was manly and impulsive?"
INARA "Yes, precisely. Only the exact phrase I used was 'don't'."

JAYNE "They are my very favourite pants."

BOOK "Oh, I've got pants aplenty, right here."

KAYLEE "I like to meet new people. They've all got pants..."

WASH "Ah, curse your sudden but inevitable pants!"


And the classic:

RIVER "Two by two... pants of blue..."


Feel free to add your own!



"My God - you're like a trained ape. Without the training."
"Come a day there won't be room for naughty men like us to slip about at all..."
I know the secret.

Well, two more River classics...

"No pants in the verse can stop me"

And

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



PsychicRiver

"Two by two, hands of blue."
"We'll take care of each other. I'll knit!"
"I swallowed a bug."

Summer Glau to me - "You are so photogenic."

The road to Hel is paved with good intentions


I haven't heard of this thread before,but I'll give it a shot:

River: Jayne is a girl's name
Jayne: Well, Jayne ain't a girl! If she starts in on that girl's name thing, I'll show her good and all I got man pants.

Mal: Well look at this. 'Pears we got here just in the nick of time. What does that make us?
Zoë: Big damn pants, sir.
Mal: Ain't we just.

The Hero of Canton alternate lyrics: Now Jayne saw the Mudder's pants breaking...

Opening theme lyrics: Take my top, take my pants, take me where I cannot dance...
(I had to cahnge a bit more to make it rhyme)

Book (from the openining): After the Earth was used up, we found a new solar system and hundreds of new pants were terraformed and colonized.

Zoë: Where's River now?
Mal: In her pants, which I'm thinking we bolt from the outside from now on.

Jayne: Hey, you know, we'd have been back first, except there's somethin' wrong with Inara's pants.

Zoe: If they board the ship, they'll rape us to death, eat our pants and sew our skin to their clothes. And if we're very, very lucky, they'll do it in that order.

or

Zoe: If they board the ship, they'll rape us to death, eat our flesh and sew our pants to their clothes. And if we're very, very lucky, they'll do it in that order.

Zoë: Shepard, isn't the Bible kind of specific about killing?
Book: Very specific. It is, however, somewhat fuzzy around the area of pants.

Wash: How did your pants even learn human speech?

and a couple I'm sure writers of Simon/Mal slasher fic will just love:

Simon: Captain, why did you come back for us?
Mal: You're on my pants.
Simon: Yeah, but you don't even like me. Why'd you come back?
Mal: You're on my pants. Why are we still talking about this?

Simon: Are you out of your pants?
Mal: Just about.


Ok, I admit it, I got a litlle help from IMDB, but the first few I thought up all on my own

BARKER
Forget what you think you know.
Forget what your mother told you when
she tucked you in at night, forget
the lies of our oppressive,
cabalistic Allied governments!
Behind this curtain lies the very
secret they don't want you to see --
the most astounding scientific find
in the history of humanity. PANTS!
Of Alien life. Yes, go ahead and
laugh, sir, but what you see inside
this room will change your life
forever! It will haunt your dreams
and harrow -- YES -- your very soul.
For six bits you can unlock -- this
lady wants to go, I cannot allow her
to be near such wonder, such
thrilling horror, unescorted. Who
will go with her? Who will see the
unholy truth, the only captured
proof -- in existence -- of Alien
pants!

INT. BARKER'S BOOTH - CONTINUING

Hold a still frame on Simon and Kaylee, staring intently at something in a big jar that we can't see very well. Wait a beat.


SIMON
Yep. That's a cow's pants.
KAYLEE
Guess so... Does seem to have an
awful lot of legs...

SIMON
It's mutated. Most of the breeding
on the outer planets was done by
shipping DNA scrip. The first pants were grown
in labs, then set loose. Every now
and then...

KAYLEE
But cow? How do you figure?

SIMON
They're upside down.

She cranes her head upside down, looks. Nods, sagely...


KAYLEE
Okay, then. Cow.
SIMON
And I'm out twelve bits. I really
know how to show a girl a...
disgusting pair of pants.

Here's a few from Train Job, a bit of which I used on the tagboard.
