I've seen some of the good threads about people's favourite firefly moments - funniest, etc. - but, as a show with a few couples / romances, I was wondering, what are people's favourite romantic moments?

(Can you tell I went to a wedding last weekend?! And this weekend I have to work to make up for the time off, so I'm looking for cheerful stuff to read about.)

My favourite moment is with Zoe and Wash, of course: the conversation they have in 'Heart of Gold' about having children. It's a funny 'romantic' moment maybe, but I think it's a conversation only a happy couple could have - and I think Zoe and Wash are one of the few really realistic couples I've seen in a TV show. Plus, it's kind of sad as it's one of those jolts out of the series: you see that they could be living completely differently, that losing the war really could have meant losing a whole way of life. It really made me notice that I believed in the characters as existing first and their situation second too, if that makes sense.

So, any other romantic favourites?

Well, Mal and Inara's almost-breakthrough moment at the end of HOG comes to mind. It was so intense! But since it ends with Inara leaving, I don't know if that's the kind of romance you mean, since it's more of the "Love hurts" variety.

I'm also fond of the little moment in OIS when Mal touches Inara's face where Early hit her, and Inara is so overwhelmed by the feelings that that brings up, she can't back away fast enough.

I absolutely love in Jaynestown with Stitch threw Simon in the dirt, and Kaylee went to him...The little "Honey" she said breaks my heart every time...I think that's when she became my favorite female character on the show...

Kaylee: "What's so damn important about being proper? It don't mean nothing out here in the black."
Simon: "It means more out here. It's all I have..."

I believe that's known as "tragedy" or British miniseries - one or the other.

The moment in OiS when Kaylee asks Simon if there isn't anything on Serenity that he doesn't feel glad of. He gives her that LONG look, reaches out and just about touches her when Book walks through.

Simon's so much better off romantically if he doesn't try to use words. Much more a man of action.

Also at the end of OiS when Mal and Inara are talking and he tries to take a closer look at her lip. He touches her, she gets him to stop, there's a look - brief, but LOADED - and she leaves.

She's like Cinderella, always running away. Mal wouldn't exactly be text book prince charming, but he does have his moments.

When Simon wakes up, there is a brief moment when Simon is content to be holding Kaylee in his arms...then he realizes Mal is towering over him and the moment is lost to 'I'd never...'

Of the 'love hurts' variety (sort of):

There's a moment in 'bushwhacked' when Inara is kind of complimenting Mal after he decides that those bodies can get a proper funeral. It's so beautifully done - his eyes soften just a little as she begins speaking, then when she's done they're empty again. It's like that exchange reminds him of the huge gulf between them.

Okay, not all that romantic. But affecting, all the same.

SHEWHOHATHAPEN


Of the Awwwww variety:

In The Message while Simon and Kaylee are in the "alien" booth, Kaylee is looking at the cow fetus as she talks about how it's sweet because it never even saw the light of day and now it's in show business, while Simon is staring at her with this look of just complete and unguarded adoration on his face. So sweet. I always think, if only Kaylee could have seen the way that he was looking at her just then, she probably would never have gotten angry at him again. Maybe. :)

In War Stories when Zoe comes to get Wash and Mal from Niska when she first walks into the room Wash is completely out of it and starts frantically saying, "No, no, run, run" at her. Adorable. Zoe's so kickass, but Wash worries about her so much anyway.

My absolute favorite will always be drunken!Simon telling Kaylee that she's pretty especially when she's covered in engine grease. And before Jaynestown it was very, very clear how much Kaylee liked Simon, but Simon plays everything so close to the vest that you couldn't entirely be sure about whether or not it was mutual. But the way that he gets this dreamy look on his face and just starts waxing on about it just brings it home. He thinks that she's especially pretty covered in engine grease. He not only noticed but he gave it more than a little thought. I just love that sweet confirmation that, yes, Simon is so into her.

Of the Love Hurts variety:

The end of Heart of Gold, the way that Inara starts to break just a little as she turning around after she tells Mal that's she leaving. So sad.

Also, in this section, Inara's breakdown in Heart of Gold kills me in general, but as she's crying she sort of pulls herself together for a moment, just a moment, but she just can't hold it and she bursts into sobs again. Breaks my heart.

My favorite romantic moment was in OIS, when River comes in on Simon and Kaylee talking on the couch. You get a sense that all the awkwardness between them and the formality is stripped away, and they're acting like they're on a first date. And that one shot where Kaylee touches him with her bare foot, and Simon says "There were no Feds....not until I started singing." That look on his face as he says that shows that under the right circumstances, our Dr. Tam can indeed be a smooth operator.

It's a nice romantic moment, which is only interrupted when River sees what's he's thinking and the happy couple is stone faced.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

And wow! Hey! What's this thing suddenly coming towards me very fast? Very very fast. So big and flat and round, it needs a big wide sounding name like ... ow ... ound ... round ... ground! That's it! That's a good name - ground! I wonder if it will be friends with me?

At the beginning of OiS, when River is walking through the ship; as she approaches the cockpit where Wash and Zoe are kissing, she is overwhelmed by the deep emotions they're giving off and has to back away...

Also, Wash and Zoe in bed when Wash gives the "...all corpsified and gross..." speech. Unike the other "couples" on board, they are so comfortable and at ease with each other. I just thought they were such a perfect married couple right then.

Apathy on the Rise. No One Cares.

Maybe this doesn't quite qualify as "romantic," but in "Heart of Gold," I think there's something rather touching to the scene when Jayne is sitting with that prostitute and braiding her hair. Like, the life he leads, when does he get the chance to braid a girl's hair?

There's something sweet and sad to that, I think.

Also, in "Our Mrs. Reynolds," when Inara thinks Mal has figured out that she kissed him...damn Mal for screwing THAT up!

Yeah, I *loved* that moment. Most serious moments between those two are really strong. Major nonverbals. I also always liked the two ones Shewhohathapen mentioned, like with Simon staring at Kayley in the "alien" booth. That was so sweet and he was just adorable. Then the next scene has Mal telling Inara he just "doesn't want her in the way of trouble".

or in Bushwacked : (again, paraphrasing)

WASH: Have you ever been with a warrior woman?

I second this... The truly romantic moments in life are the ones where you fall asleep with the person you love on the couch with you. It's blissful contentment .... This scene caught that for me.

Those are some good ones but I am a Jaylee fan and am pathetically always looking for subtext so these are my favorites-

In Serenity Part I when they're all sitting around the table and Kaylee is laying it on pretty thick to Simon, there is a shot when you see Jayne look at Kaylee, hitting on Simon and then at Simon and back at Kaylee and you know he doesn't like what he's seeing. Gives me chills.
"You're not going to kill this man." -Book
"Not right away, no." -Jayne
Can there be any more proof of affection from a guy like Jayne than immediate painful revenge on your behalf?
Also, big tough mean Jayne crouching by the infirmary window anxiously watching to see if Kaylee will be all right.

And Wash and Zoe and the end of War Stories when Wash says, "Mmmm. Wife soup. I must have done good." and she tucks the napkin in and says, "Yes, dear. You did good."

Because I like the "intense" bits, I vote for Wash in War Stories: "run! run!", and Mal and Inara at the end of Objects in Space, at a point when they know the truth about their affections for each other, and come close to giving in.

"Wife soup" isn't a bad one, either.

I know this is just Pezzy's tag, but it's a great moment. Kaylee is playing nurse to the doctor and he's allowing her to do so. They're talking. Really talking. In this moment, he tells her she is worthy. The look on her face when she realizes he respects her is beautiful.

My favorite is just this little thing. Barely noticeable. It's Wash and Zoe at the celebration in "Our Mrs. Reynolds". He's sitting with his arms around her while she leans back against him. He turns his head and kisses her. I love it. I just shows a very tender moment between them and how close and comfortable with eachother.

Yeh I agree with the people who mentioned the Simon & Kaylee scenes in Jaynestown, they were awsome!

Also the Objects in Space bit where Book ruins the Kaylee/ Simon moment! And the subsequent awkwardness! that was both annoying and funny! :D

PS. Kinda wanna kick Simon's ass for the numerous stupid things he says to Kaylee! :D
Here's to hoping we get something good in Serenity in the Kaylee/ Simon department.

Late to the party but it's such a good thread!

I got invested in the Mal-Inara romance in 'Serenity Part 2' when Inara says something like 'If you throw them off the boat, I'm going too' and Mal replies 'Perhaps that's for the best'. It seems kind of harsh, but if you watch his face for the couple of milliseconds before he replies, you can see that the idea of her going absolutely kills him, but then he pulls himself together and gives a tough guy response. It's a beautiful piece of screen acting.

I have 2, both of which involve Kaylee and Simon...first is in Jaynestown, where they're both drunk and talking and Simon says (ha) she's pretty-"..even when you're covered in engine grease..no; especially when you're covered in engine grease!.." It's so sweet and candid; you can tell he really means it, but it still takes a coulple mugs of that drink to make him say it. And then they end up sleeping on each other..awwwww!!!
Second is when Kaylee asks him if there's anything out here he likes..you can see her aching for him to say "yes, you.." and him aching to say it..then it looks like he's gonna say it with a kiss-BUT-the stupid shepard has to ruin it..*sigh*

Not really 'romantic' but in the Pilot, when Kaylee is going on and on about how important doctors (Simon) are, Jayne basically adds subtitles and says what she's getting at. "Little Kaylee just wishes you was a gynecologist" and then something along the lines of "Just because Kaylee gets all lubbed up over some city boy..." I thought the look on Kaylee and Simons faces were funny.

I don't know if this counts but it really got to me when Mal first lays his eyes on Serenity at the end of "out Of Gas". Especially when you hear at the beginning of the episode that "it will be with you till the day you die" from the sales guy...and you think he is talking about the Firefly (Serenity)....

I actually have a very long post I have been working on for quite a while that still needs a lot of editing, so I don't know when/if I will ever post it. But it is on my own insight into Mal and Inara.. the two characters that litterally feel like they belong to my soul..

But in that "essay" of mine.. I brought up a couple of thoughts that are along this same topic that I was wondering what other people's ideas are..

I don't see Firefly as ever being the story of Mal and Inara as "being" together.. but as the story of them "comming" together. Like if they ever come together but the story still goes on.. I don't know if it would be the same... but anyway...

Quote:

Anyways, my favorite would be Inara kissing an unconcious Mal in "Our Mrs. Reynolds". Too bad that's the only real kiss that's ever happened between them.


This is the only time they ever kissed. And it really didn't count since Mal was passed out . But what is everyone's idea of how would Mal and Inara's first "true" kiss be? What would lead up to it? Why/how would it happen? And their first kiss, would it be tender and romatic? Or would it be agressive, lustful and passionate, as if to tear the ship part? I have my own funny/passionate story of their first kiss in my mind.. I would like to hear other people's ideas first.

Secondly.. I don't believe their first "true" kiss would be the point that brings them truely together.. just another event that brings them closer to it. But when Mal and Inara would eventually come together (even though it could be the last episode/movie ever ). What are your ideas for how it would happen? What would be the story/event that would finally bring them together? Again I have my own tragic/beautiful idea.. but was wondering first what other people's are..

Not exactly a romantic moment, but I love the contrast in OoG where we see Inara and Mal first meet then their far more relaxed but still with the arguing and banter and UST when they are prepping Inara's shuttle to leave.

I don't know if it's so much a romantic moment as an "unrequited love" sort of moment...but it's the part in "Our Mrs. Reynolds" when Mal says to Inara (and keep in mind I'm paraphrasing here): "Let's be honest...you didn't really hit your head did you?"

And Inara...so breathy and weak at the knees, dropping her eyes, replies: "No..."

I don't know why, but that's probably one of my all-time favorite Mal and Inara moments. What I would give to have been Mal at that instant! There are a lot of sexy Inara scenes in that series, but to me, she was her hottest right then and there...

Of course, I want to slap Mal silly when he grins and says: "I knew it...you kissed her too!"

Argh!

"I'm also fond of the little moment in OIS when Mal touches Inara's face where Early hit her, and Inara is so overwhelmed by the feelings that that brings up, she can't back away fast enough."


This is my fave romantic moment too, Mal is so gentle and sweet and her reaction caused me to gasp.

I also love the part where she kisses him in "Our Mrs. Reynolds" so grateful that he is alive. And of course passes out from "The Goodnight Kiss" as well.





"Everything looks good from here..." Wash

!!!!!!SPOILER! !!!!!

I have 2 favorite Mal moments.

The first is from the movie where Inara contacts Mal and they are both stammering like teenagers at each other about the trunk that she left on Serenity. They are saying a lot with their eyes though. Then as Mal comes up to the bridge he realizes that everyone saw everything.

The other moment is at the end of Out of Gas. It's the last flashback when the used spaceship salesman is trying to sell him a rocket, he glances over and see a Firefly-pure love at first sight.

I think my favorite moment is in War Stories when Zoe goes to bargain for Wash and Mal. She has to choose between Wash and Mal and for a split second I was certain she would choose Mal, but she chose Wash, that almost made me cry.

And that one shot where Kaylee touches him with her bare foot, and Simon says "There were no Feds....not until I started singing." That look on his face as he says that shows that under the right circumstances, our Dr. Tam can indeed be a smooth operator.


Oh, my...I loved that bit. For me, pretty much anything dealing with Simon and Kaylee. Like in Jaynestown, when he's hurt and in the dust and she goes to him and says, "Honey," in the sweetest voice. So adorable, I tell you. And all that stuff in HOG with Mal and Inara, in the "love hurts" category. That crying scene breaks my heart every time.

Hey to all the FF obsessed people!

No, Cap'n, I think it's shiny!--Kaylee, o'course.

Yeah, but she's our witch, so cut her the hell down! --Mal in "Safe."

"Wife soup" isn't a bad one, either.

Early: Where'd she go?

Simon: I can't keep track of her when she's NOT incorporeally possessing a spaceship, don't look at me --



Oh, I'm a fan of intense moments too, and that's also one of my favorites.

I'd also like to refer to, in terms of intense moments, in "Our Mrs. Reynolds", when Saffron announces herself as "Malcolm Reynolds' widow", there's that split-second look of pure horror on Inara's face at the thought of Mal being dead. Then fighting ensues. Then of course the dramatic scramble to his bunk and the kiss. But that look she gets gets me every time. Gotta love an actor or actress who can pull off good reactions.

Most of my favorites have been mentioned already, so excuse me if I repeat I love drunken Simon and Kaylee in Jaynestown.
Also, there is a small Wash and Zoe moment in Bushwacked, after Jayne's encounter w/ the surviver in the galley. Wash hear's the shots over the comm and starts freaking out until Zoe answers him. He just needed to know that she was okay, and the look of relief on his face when he hears her voice makes me smile everytime.Plus the "Run!Run!" moment in War Stories is oh so sweet.Also, love Mal and Inarya's conversation at the end of Shindig.

Just a few favorite lovey, non-romantic moments:
Simon's speech in Serenity Pt 2. The look on his face is the sweetest thin I've ever seen.

Wash and Zoe in the shuttle during War Stories, when he's telling her how Mal kept him from breaking. Okay, maybe not love but still...goodness.

Heard lots of folks sayin how much they liked mal falling in love with serenity the first time he saw it in OoG. Gotto say, the first time i saw serenity i think i had the same feeling. Whe ni saw the movie it was the first time i'd heard or seen anything of this verse and when the camera pans round serenity for the first time all peaceful... beautiful.

And then ya realise the ship is entering a planet atmosphere...... awesome.

Yes, I echo the "I love the ship moments". Folks have already mentioned Mal's love at first sight in Out of Gas and Kaylee's "That's my girl" in Serenity.

My favorite is the look on Kaylee's face when the close up the hatch in "Serenity" She simply cannot believe she does not have to fight folks off her wonderful ship.

Also the way River carresses the ship with her feet and hands in several moments.

See how I'm not punching him, I think I've grown!
