I did a search for this topic in the archives and came up with nothing, so I will flatter myself that I came up with a new topic!

What are your favourite outtakes from the series? What are the outtakes that continually make you burst out in hysterical laughter and wish fervently that you could have worked with these brilliant, hilarious actors?

First of all, I have to say that almost ANY blooper involving Nathan Fillion is awesome. The man has SUCH a wicked sense of humor that he must be a joy to work with. He is incapable of making a "boring" outtake; he even jazzes up everyone else's mistakes!

Almost all of my favourite bloopers are from the BDM, and in a very VERY vague order (seriously, they're almost all on par with each other) they are:

1) The absolutely brilliant space battle sequence where Mal is "a back spaceship driver" and screams "GET OUTTA THE WAAAAAAAY!!!" I wish that they had been able to justify leaving that scene in somehow.
2) The infamous "hood ornament" conversation. You know the one.
3) "TRAAAAAAAAAP!!!!!"
4) "I've seen so much death..." followed by an impromptu dance session
5) "We have to... shit. We have to shit, sir!"

From the series, there are a lot, but the only ones I can remember are the mustache ones and the one in the extended blooper reel where they did a spoof of Tracey's recorded message, panning around to the entire crew only to have Mal keep shifting and looking dramatic.

How about you guys?

Where can I get a hold of the extended blooper reel?

My favorite is the Hood ornament conversation, the look on Jewels face is priceless!

I love in the movie, when they get to the "so you all were listenin' I take it" scene, when Mal says trap, Nathans eyes are so full of humor, you know he is remembering the TRAAAAAAAAAAP outtake.

Go onto YouTube (

) and look up "firefly bloopers", it should be the first on the list. It goes on for a good long while (more than on the DVD so keep watching), and it's very amusing. ^^

I noticed when rewatching the BDM yesterday that when Mal is fighting with Simon about River after she was triggered, and says MY SHIP!!!, Jewel has an expression on her face that looks like she's trying to emote being taken aback and upset at the fighting, while also trying not-quite-successfully to suppress a mischievous grin...

All the ones mentioned thus far are great.

From Firefly, the one from the message where the camera pans around.

All the outtakes are great Serenity and Firefly ones but the one for me is the Serenity one when Wash is flying through avoiding Reaver ships and Alliance ones and all you can hear is Nathan shouting down his and then they all start and some of the stuff Nathan says are very funny and then by the end Alan gets up out of his chairs and shouts "Do you wana drive this ship" and then as he leaves he shouts "I will be in my bunk" Thought that bit was so funny.

Ok, aside of the "hood ornament" (which I still have to watch more than once when watching the bloopers) my favorite is from Wash..

"They just go out sending raver..reaver breeding parties"

I know with the closed captioned it read "reading parties" but that is not how it sounds to me.

Absolutely my favorites is the "hood ornament" scene and I think it should be said that that was a great outtake but it was also some really really brilliant improvisational humor on the part of Nathan Fillion if, in fact, he just did that on his own.

Series: (extended reel)
Wash's interview with the Alliance officer. I have a suspicion that it was just Alan seeing how much the other guy could take before he cracked.
Nathan not getting on the access ramp in time.

Movie:
"Hood ornament." (Naturally.)
"Don't tell me what to god damn do... MY SHIP!"
"Serenity's east mumblemumble, mumble mumble mumble, mumble, hang a left."

Am I the only one who actually wished that they'd left that interview with the Alliance officer intact in the show? Seriously, it was SO in character for Wash, and with the exception of Zoe being "hairy" was probably all true for Wash. XD And the officer was just brilliant, perfectly deadpan.

Loving all the others too. ^_^

Gah! I forgot about that interview gag! I also thought it was hilarious amongst other things, so I guess that'd come second in best gag scene.

I seriously think the best gag reel is from Firefly, hands down...but I can't say for certain until someone leaks out the full gag reel of Serenity (if there is even one around).

I personally love the one from the start of The Train Job where Nathan doesn't quite get onto Serenity's ramp in time and ends up dangling from it. Right where Adam tries to help him and he falls off - that's where I crack up.

Definently the hood ornament one and the "i've seen so much death" dance but also a bit from The Message, where every one is in the cargo bay looking into the coffin and Nathan gets into every shot and into the coffin. Hilarious!

Can't. Sentence. Properly.

That would be me in French class...

I love the roundabout in The Message as well, how Nathan Fillion stays completely serious and sad looking, while everyone else is cracking up.

The cell phones going off on the show...

Alan/Wash waking up with the snort...I started snorting with laughter just watching him....

"How MUCH is that geisha in the window? (chin chin!) I do hope that geisha's for sale! (yah!)"

The cast messing up the Chinese and descending into English cursing...

Is it just me, or does Nathan Fillion seem to be behind most of these hijinks?

New to the 'verse but ready and more than willing to learn.

Going solely on the long long clip from YouTube..
I agree that Nathan is the driving force behind much of the hi-jinks that occurred. Including his opening scene "How do you turn this fucking thing off?"

But the Love Boat song and all those old pictures really got me...I just hope I didn't wake up my roommate cause I guffawed.

It's been a good while since anyone but me touched my plow, so don't think I ain't interested....

Haven't seen any mention of the outtake from OMR where River wants Book to marry her and Simon.

That is Hi-larious, especially when Simon tells Book "She's really crazy" and River kicks him. The look on her face is great.

They really should have left that in.

I haven't seen the extended gag reel from the series, so I'll definitely have to get my hands on that. The one on my DVD set is way too short!

From the movie:

Loved the whole "dirt nap with baby Jesus/Jayne try not to steal too much of their shit" scene. The look on Jewel's face is priceless.

The "backspaceship driver" take.

Nathan and Morena in the training house scene:
Nathan: What aren't you doing?
Morena: Crap!
