After watching the episodes over and over for weeks I have finaly settled for my favourite quote. It's from the pilot Serenity and unsurprisingly is a Joss line :). The way Mal says "politely" at the end always makes me burst out laughing. Just the thought of trying to shoot someone politely is hillerious.

________________________________________________________________________

Mal: If anyone gets nosy, just, you know... shoot 'em.

Zoe: Shoot 'em?

Mal: Politely.

That back and forth between Mal and Zoe is about my fav. Not so much for its hilarity, but when Mal says.. " ....cause?". That line even got my 76 yr old dad to laugh, something he rarely does while watching t.v. these days. Thanks Firelfy.

Saffron: "I'm bequeathed to you."

Mal: "To Whubbawho?"

Saffron: "Captain Reynolds, sir... I'm your wife."

Mal's blank stare - I didn't just hear that did I? - is my all time favorite moment in the entire series. The moment that made me a browncoat for-evah.

Yup, and then a little later, when he exclaims "I didn't marry you!" and Book says he did, he leans into Jayne and whispers, "how drunk was I last night?" ROTFLMAO! Of course he don't trust the guy, but they can still be 'drinking buddies'! ;)

I always liked:

JAYNE: Captain, can you stop her from bein' cheerful, please?

MAL: I don't believe there is a power in the 'verse that can stop Kaylee from being cheerful.

He smiles at her, never stopping working.

MAL: Sometimes you just wanna duct tape her mouth and dump her in the hold for a month.

She grins and kisses his cheek.

KAYLEE: I love my captain.


That and...

ZOE: Now we have a boatful of citizens right on top of our... stolen cargo. That's a fun mix.

MAL: Ain't no way in the 'verse they could find that compartment, even-- (stops talking as Dobson walks past) Even if they were lookin' for it.

ZOE: Why not?

Mal is thrown by the question.

MAL: 'Cause...?

ZOE: Oh yeah, this is gonna go great.


...which leads to the shoot politely bit, of course, which is also very good

But then, there are so many good quotes it's hard to choose less than a dozen favourites!

Mal: "We're not gonna die. We can't die, Bendis. You know why? Because we are so... very... pretty. We are just too pretty for God to let us die."

It's so all purpose that I've used it a number of times with out anyone figuring out where it's from, but knowing it got to be a quote from somewhere.

Check out the shooting script (or a writer's draft), not the transcript. "To cleave"...great nuance to that.

There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.


There are so many, I don't think I could ever say which is my favorite. But right now, considering everything that has happened with the series, the dvds, and the greenlighting of "Serenity," I would have to say the most appropriate quote of all is from the first few minutes of the pilot:

"We have done the impossible, and that makes us mighty!"

Damn. There are so many:

I like River's badassness in my sig quote.

Hero of Canton

So, many, but I want to mention a few that no else did.

River one liner's:

"Keep on walking preacher man."

"Jayne is a girl's name."

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

Fed: "Simon Tam, stand down."

Mal: " What? The Doctor? Oh. Hey. Is-is there a reward?

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


Finally,
And I forget why or what episode, but:

*Zoe: "That seems to be a solution to alot of problems. Give Jayne a big stick and stand back."

If that's not the right person or exact quote, but that's the gist of it. I loved that quote.

It was Shindig, I believe, and Inara speaking to Mal about what she thought of the pool game. I don't remember the exact quote though.

Like most people here, I have way too many favourite quotes to count. Here's a small selection though:

Jayne: Here's an idea I've been working on: why don't we shoot her first?
Wash: It is her turn...

Wash: Alright! Everybody NOT talking about sex, in here. Everyone else, outside!

Book: Well - isn't that *special*!

Mal: It takes a great man to show mercy. STAB I'm just a good man. STAB Well - I'm alright.

And on a slightly different note:
Simon's "I am very smart..." speech in Serenity chokes me up every time I see/hear it. The speech, plus the footage and music that goes with it is beautiful...

And my favourite Simon/River moment:
River (seeing the syringe Simon's brought): It's time to go to sleep again?
Simon: No, mei mei. It's time to wake up.

Bequeathed: Left to you by someone who died

Betrothed: Pledged to marriage

To cleave: Hold tightly, as if joined in a single object (this is an old english interpretation; modern usage is pretty much exclusively "to separate")

I distinctly recall her saying, "I'm to cleave to you." I thought it was wonderful poetry, particularly because it conjured the older interpretation of the verb.

Bequeathed just makes no sense. *laughs*

Decide on a fave quote....how about no? hehe.

A lot of my favorite's have been mentioned here. THere's the 'When you can't run...' quote, pretty much everything Zoe says to Mal, and Wash. A lot of Wash.

"Big damn heroes, sir."

"He makes everybody cry...he's like a monster."

"Bwaa."

Alliance Commander: You fought with Captain Reynolds in the war?
Zoe: Fought with a lot of people in the war.
Alliance Commander: And your husband?
Zoe: Fight with him sometimes, too.

I'm trying to be original, but that leaves me with little to quote. Most everyone loves the same stuff. ^_^ Firefly is brilliant....every episode makes me laugh. Probably even more so than Buffy, and it usually leaves me fighting for air between giggles.

Oh, I can't believe no one has posted these...

Wash: Psychic, though? That sounds like something out of science fiction.
Zoe: You live on a spaceship, dear.

WASH: Yes, Mal. It would boost the signal, but even if some passerby did happen to receive, all it'd do is muck up their navigation.

MAL: Could be that's true.

WASH: Damn right, it's true! They'd be forced to stop and dig out our signal before they could even go anyplace!
*beat*
WASH: Well, maybe I should do that, then!
MAL: Maybe you should!
WASH: Okay!
MAL: Good!


Stegosaurus: We will rule over all this land, and
we will call it... "This Land."
T-Rex: I think we should call it "your
grave!"
Stegosaurus: Ah, curse your sudden but inevitable
betrayal!
T-Rex: Ha ha HA! Mine is an evil laugh! Now
die!
Stegosaurus: Oh, no, God! Oh, dear God in heaven!

"Holy mother of God and all her wacky nephews." (Didn't feel like finding out the chinese...)

Wash: The legs. Oh yeah, definitely have to say it was her legs. You can put that down. Her legs, and where her legs meet her back. Actually, that whole area. That, and above it.

Firefly is just too good.

"Bwaa...it's kind of a warrior...strikes fear into the hearts of..."

Oh!
My!
God(dess)!

Cleavers!

In an aside to the thread in which someone was arguing that River and Reavers are related by Academy manipulation (Reavers are just earlier versions of River that the Academy cast off), we now have a third group! Cleavers.

Cleavers are a renegade splinter group, broken away from the Companion's Guild. They no longer use their powers for good (sex), but for evil (cleavin'). They wander the 'verse cleaving to unsuspecting men and womenfolk, in both the OE and modern definitions given above. First they cleave to a guy ('hold tightly'), then they cleave ('separate') their thighs and cleave ('hold tightly') unto him. Finally, they cleave ('separate') the victims' money and other worldy possessions from them. Think 'sports wife'. For example, just wait 'til you see what Kobe's little Cleaver does to him over the next few years; he'd be luckier meeting Reavers. Very scary...

We've only met Saffron so far. I can hardly wait 'til we meet Ward, June, Wally and of course, *shivers* the Beaver.

Although, I think we already know who the beaver cleaver on the show is, right? Or do we need to run a pole, er, poll through that topic as well?


Thorazinely,

zoid

Strangely, one of my favourites isn't even from a major character. The gentleman in "Shindig" that rescues Kaylee says to the evil wench: (not certain about exactly how it starts but the gist is) "That's a mighty fine dress. It must have taken a dozen slaves a dozen hours to get you into it. Of course your daddy tells me it takes the space of a schoolboy's wink to get you out of it again. *wench leaves in a huff* I can not abide useless people."

Oh. How could any of us forget this one? Well, those of us who are lucky enough to be able to afford the DVD's (or those of us who can't but bought it anyways). It's in the deleated scenes where River wants Book to marry her and Simon. Simon looks at book, and not knowing what to say, finally says it as bluntly as Jayne: "She's REALLY crazy." Or river saying later in the scene, "You gotta marry me now. I'm in the family way." Screw plot. They should've kept that in.

It's true, June Cleaver had a little Beaver. She also wore a pearl necklace all of the time. She said that it symbolized her love and devotion for her husband Wash, er.. Ward.
