I was in a dress rehearsal, and one of the girls in the scene forgot to do her next piece of blocking ((Movement on stage for the uninitiated)) so out of my mouth comes "What aren't you doing?". Immediately afterwards, no joke, three other guys on stage and the light guy on the house mic ((Who has the voice of God when he's on the PA, I swear)) all shout "SUMMER!".

That certainly threw me for a spell.

Hah I caught myself doing the same thing to a friend of mine at a rehearsal and he got the reference also... hehe

In my own defense I have to tell you something about the missus and then my own firefly quirk. Iremist likes to eat the icing off of cake in the middle of the night when no one is looking and leave the remains for others to find in the morning. (I don't begrudge her, I usually have twice as big a piece as she could ever eat.) When I wake up in the morning to have a slice for breakfast, there are the horrid remains left for all to see. As I stand above her to say goodbye while she lies asleep all I can think of is "I done goned oft and married me a gorram cake REAVER!
Now my little "I watch too much firefly" spiel. When I was installing alarms in restaurants I had to be careful not to cuss in Chinese or the owners of said ethnic establishment would think I spook fluent Mandarin. One time I did and the cashier busted a gut laughin then went and told the cook what I said. They asked where I learned it and I told the truth.

I dyed my browncoat black for those whom have gone before.

Reposted from an old blog of mine, because it fits the thread so well:

---------------

So, last night I had a hockey game. At one point I carried the puck in close and took a shot (it'd be cooler if I scored, but it just went off the side of the net.) Then a defense(wo)men on the other team pushed me from behind and I crashed into the goalie and knocked the net off its moorings.

The ref whistled the play dead to fix the net, and the center on the other team (who's a good friend) immediate came up and asked the goalie: "Are you okay?"

So I turned around and said, "Is she okay?"

No one got it.

*sigh*

---------------

I've since kept a tighter rein on my FF-isms. Which, really, is a shame...

I throw fireflyisms in with my normal speech,its such great catchy dialogue also other people pick it up from you it's that contagious...eg.I know alot of 7-12 year old kids who use the word shiny in context.

One time I was visiting the folks and my mom advised that she was going to do some wash.

The first thing I thought/said was, Watch out for Zoe!

And nowadays, whenever I mention my occupation in any kind of Browncoat forum - whether it's online or in person - I'm bracing myself for someone to make some remark to the effect of, So you have a Train Job, huh?

You know you’ve watched too much Firefly when...

you start cussing in Chinese. Or better still, write out Chinese swearing phrases to say after you've just had a really annoying conversation with someone.

you try and convert every new person you meet. I've a 3 out of 4 success ratio, which ain't bad.

you think about the next installment of your fanfic 24/7, and then the one after that,...and the one after that.

Shiny is definately part of my vocabulary, as is ri shao goo shi bing.

You know you've watched too much Firefly when...

You ask your ex-wife to post an appeal on her knitting blog to get people to join the Universal HD Firefly forums and aid the cause of a Serenity sequel (and she does!):

Everyone with an ex should have an ex as shiny as mine.

Here’s one,
The other day the wife and I were driving around the neighborhood when I noticed a yard with a flagpole in it. At the top of the pole there was a flag. It was a big NASCAR flag. I looked at her and said,” Isn’t that silly. They have a flagpole in their yard with a big NASCAR flag on it. Don’t they know that flag should say FIREFLY!!”

Yes I definitely watch a lotta FF/BDM…lol

Your friends have started cussing in Chinese, and they haven't even seen Firefly/Serenity.
