My favourite line is the same as my username, from OiS.

River: "I am the ship."

Well, here I am.

But really, the show is all about great lines.



Every time I see that episode I almost fall off my chair laughing! What a great line! Also, at the beginning of Serenity, pt 1, the dinosaur thing was hilarious. I can't remember the exact wording.

I like the whole training exercise from Ariel with Simon and the Crew

"The patients were cynical and not responding and we couldn't bring them back"

Experience has taught me that interest begets expectation, and expectation begets disappointment, so the key to avoiding disappointment is to avoid interest. A=B=C=A, or whatever

So I've got about 2,000 favorites (give or take) but here's a minor comminglation of them:

Wash: "Did he just go crazy and fall asleep?"

Zoe: "Sir, I think you have a problem with your brain being missing."

Mal: "Were there monkeys? Some terrifying space monkeys maybe got loose in the engine room?"

Tracey: "When you can't run no more you crawl. When you can't do that, you find someone to carry you."

Mal: "If your hand touches metal, I swear by my pretty floral bonnet I will end you."

Book: "If you take sexual advantage of her, you're going to burn in a very special level of Hell, a level they reserve for child molesters and people who talk at the theater."

Jayne: "Pain is scary"

River: "He looks better in red."

Mal:"We're not gonna die, you hear me? And you know why? Because we are so very PRETTY. We are just too pretty for God to let us die."

Kaylee: "Yessir, Captain Tight-Pants!"

Jayne: "Dear diary, today I was pompous and my sister was crazy. Today we were kidnapped by hill-folk, never to be seen again. It was the best day ever."

Zoe: "Take me sir, take me hard."

River: "Sad little king of a sad little hill"

Simon: "This must be what going mad feels like."

Simon: "no, THIS must be what going mad feels like."

Inara: "Every well bred, petty crook knows that the small, concealable weapons always go to the far left of the place setting."

And finally, I can't believe, no one has put these up!!

River (HoG): Who do you think is in there?

NANDI: "You gonna remember where everything
goes?"
MAL: "Let's just say I plan to take it real
slow."

Mal: "Yup, that went well."

and finally, Inara in Trash:
Inara: "You know, I put on this big act and
storm away in a huff, then I fly off,
wait for you to doublecross Mal, beat
you to the rendezvous spot and grab
the loot before you can get to it. What, you didn't see it coming? You know, I'm a little disappointed. Some of the crew's performances
weren't quite as nuanced as they
could have been. I thought they might
tip the fact that we were playing you
from the second Mal took you out of
that crate. Oh, well guess not."

Inara: "Should I start with the part where
you're stranded in the middle of
nowhere, or the part where you have
no clothes?"

The last scene of Shindig, when Mal and Inara are sitting on the catwalk in the hold and Inara says "Besides, how could I leave Serenity?" and then the next camera shot reveals the hold full of cows...

The last twenty minutes of Shindig were my first Firefly experience and I fell in love right away. Luckily the DVD set came in the week after.

'd You say only one quote? I must have misread... Thought you meant 100...

Some Simon quotes:

Simon to Jayne: "Enemies? You? No! How can that be!"

"I always thought the name Serenity had a vaguely funereal sound to it."

Mal: "I need that in captain dummy talk."

Mal: "Next time you stab me in the back, have the guts to do it to my face."

Mal: "One of you's gonna fall and die, and I'm not cleaning it up!"

Inara: "Do aliens live among us?"
Kaylee: "Yes. One of them's a doctor."

Mal: "However I might slip, you're not going to catch my crew with their pants down."

Mal whispering to Jayne: "How drunk was I last night?"
Jayne: "I don't know, I passed out."

Mal: "I take it you're not overburdened with an abundance of schooling."

Monty: "I shaved off my beard for you, devil woman!"

Mal: "Don't strain your brain trying. It might break something."

Mal: "We're deep in space, corner of No and Where."

River: "And Early, Serenity is very unhappy..."

Nandy: "I've been waiting to kiss you ever since I showed you my guns."

Badger: "Thought we might have a bit of a sit-down."
Mal: "I prefer a bit of a piss-off."

Jayne: "This place gives me an uncomfortableness."

The next scene is one of my favourites since it takes the piss on all the "hero's revenge" scenes in genre flix. Mal's fighting one of Niska's minions just outside Niska's office. Jayne's raising his gun to shoot the minion.

Zoe: "Jayne, this is something the captain has to do himself." Jayne lowers his gun.
Mal: "No! No it's not!"
Zoe: "Oh" and she, Jayne and Wash start blasting the minion who falls to a sticky end.

And I can type down the whole Our Mrs. Reynolds episode for quotes... That is such a funny episode!

I would agree with all. There simply is too many...But here are some of my favorites. The ones where I watch other peoples faces who havent seen it yet, just to watch there rweactions to these great lines. i love it when they laugh out loud.

I have a horrible memory,please forgive the below butchering.

OMR: Mal- If somebody tries to kill you, you try to kill them right back.

War Stories: Wash- i was in a fire fight
well i was fired
I can handle myself
(again sorry)

OMR: Mal- well my days of taking your seriously are deffenitely coming to a middle.

Serenity: Mal- i do the job and then I get paid. Go run your little world. ( my favorite)

Serenity: Mal- If I ever decide to kill you, you will be awake, you will be facing me, and you will be armed.

Were still flying!!!

This is my first post. Laugh out loud scene from Shindig with Mal, Jayne and Badger. Badger is trying to convince Mal to meet Sir Warrick Harrow at an exclusive, hard-to-get-into party.

Badger: "Course you couldn't buy an invite with a diamond the size of a testicle. I got my hands on a couple..."

(Mal and Jayne make eye contact and crack up.)

Badger: "of invites!"

Man, you guys beat me to a ton of good ones, but I still have a couple:

"The Train Job", when Mal realizes Feds are on the train unaware that he's about to pull a theft right under their noses:

Mal: This job I would do for free.

Zoe: Well in that case, can I have your share?

Mal: No.

Zoe: If you die, can I have your share?

Mal: Yes.


"Trash", after Inara calls Mal a petty thief:

Mal: Petty?

Inara: I didn't mean petty.

Mal: Well what did you mean?

Inara: Swa-shi? (sp?)

Mal: (annoyed) That's Chinese for "petty".

my fave for dramatic poigniant writing and characterisation is

simon: captain, why did you come back for us?
mal: you're on my crew.
simon: yeah, but you don't even like me. why d'you come back?
mal: you're on my crew. why are we still talking about this?


and the line that made me laugh more than anything else has in years was

jayne: that's why I never kiss 'em on the mouth.

just works for a grotty little perv like me :)

Most of my fav's have been covered above. I can't believe I almost got to the end without someone adding Inara's: "Every well bred petty crook knows the small, concealable weapons go to the far left of the place setting." [from memory, excuse errors] Which is classic.

Frankly, Jubal Early supplied the strongest, most creepifying dialogue throughout OiS, but I particularly like his exchange with Simon:

s: are you Alliance?
e: A lion? ....

But I'm partial to the one from River in my sig below.

I thought he said "Well you can already see I have" I mean it makes more sense. He's holding a gun to the guy and taking the part for free.

These are my favourite quotes that have already been mentioned:

1. Mal: One of you is gonna fall and die and I’m not cleaning it up!
(War Stories)

2. Mal: Ah the sound of tiny feet in huge combat boots.
(War Stories)

3. Wash: Yes, this is a fertile land and we will thrive. We will rule over all this land and we will call it... This Land. I think we should call it Your Grave. Ahh, curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal. Ha, ha, ha- mine is an evil laugh- now die! Ahh, no God
(Serenity)

4. River: They say the snow on the roof was too heavy. They say the ceiling will cave in. His brains are in terrible danger
(I think Jaynestown)

5. Mal: "And you're supposed to make me look respectable."
Kaylee: "Yes sir, Captain Tight-Pants!
(Shindig)

6. Dobson: "Alright, I can see you're not an idiot."
Jayne: "Well I wish I could say the same for you Lawrence, but... this is just disappointing as hell."
(Serenity)

This one hasn’t yet been posted

ZOE: Captain'll come up with a plan.
KAYLEE: That's good, right?
ZOE: Possible you're not recalling some of his previous plans.
(Safe)

And this one is so adorable. Even though it was never made I just love it.

JAYNE: Hey!
KAYLEE: Sorry.
JAYNE: Got any thread?
Jayne holds up the turtle, neck is almost gone.
JAYNE: His floppy neck's makin' me sad.

Ok, since the "pick only one" thing was ignored long ago ...

From Jaynestown -
Wash: We gotta go to the crappy town where I'm a hero!

Jayne: I think I really made a difference in their lives. Me, Jayne Cobb.
Mal: I know your name jackass.

From Shindig -
Zoe: If I were gonna wear a dress, I'd want one with some slink.
Wash: You want a slinky dress? I'll buy you a slinky dress. Captain, can I have some money for a slinky dress?
Jayne: I'll chip in.
Zoe: I can hurt you.

From Our Mrs. Reynolds -
Mal: You got the right same as anyone to live and try to kill people, ya know, people that are trying to ... that's a dumb planet.

Inara: I only fell is all.


And far too many that have already been mentioned.

"Put Shepherd Book front and center, he was our friend, he should be honored. Kaylee, find me that kid takin' a dirt nap with baby Jesus, we need a hood ornament. Jayne, try not to steal too much of their shit!"

I love the way the entire cast is cracking up around him and he just keeps going.

There are so many great lines in the Serenity outtakes. The whole "I do NOT NEED A BACK SPACESHIP DRIVER" scene is classic too. And "TRAAAPP!!!"

One that really made it to the screen:

"You can't change that by gettin' all... bendy" (and the rest of that quote, which Google's failing to find for me right now)

I think all the other ones I was going to mention have been already but I only saw these ones once each, buried in lists:

"You wanna meet the real me now?"

"Son of a bitch!"

i have alot of favorite lines :) but i have to agree with the earlier person that posted this bit.

from the train job: zoe and mal just past through a car full of alliance guys. zoe and mal have a short conversation about whether it concerns them and mal tells zoe it only makes it more fun. then zoe says

"sir, i think you have a problem with your brain being missing."

hehe, i loved that. the look on her face when she said it was great. you can tell they had alot of fun doing that show. another great quote was from jayne:

"if wishes were horses we'd all be eatin steaks"

man... i could list about 50 of them :) breaks my heart that the show was cancelled. firefly was about as entertaining as tv gets.

Hey, I've got a favourite nobody's mentioned yet!

Mal: You're making out like Zoe just blindly follows my every word, and that ain't true.
Wash: Sure it is.
Mal: Not so. There've been plenty of orders of mine she didn't obey.
Wash: Name one!
Mal: She married you!

(War Stories)

Later in the episode:

Mal: You want me to sleep with her [Zoe]? That make you feel better?
Wash: It might...
Mal: Imagine it'd do wonders for her too.
Wash: Screw you!
Mal: Get in line!

Hilarious, especially given the context.
