INEVITABLEBETRAYAL


10) Never double cross a girl who can read your mind.
9) Them as want to keep their blood internal will avoid men with blue gloves.
8) Be careful. They peck harder on some planets than others.
7) Fist fighting may be hilarious on occasion--but before you go for the laughs, make sure it doesn't also involve sword-fight challenges.
6) Being ornery, bitter and emotionally unavailable will win you the love of a wise, beautiful, emotionally unavailable prostitute.
5) If a girl won't go all the way, try taking her down to the engine room. I hear that works sometimes.
4) If Inara has a female client, knock before you enter Jayne's quarters.
3) Being truthsome with the afore mentioned prostitute will only backfire on you. Continue with the ornery bitterness.
2) Living on spaceships does not constitute science fiction. Mind reading does.
and the number one thing I learned from Firely...
Edit (new number one):
1) Avoid midgets--sometimes they have an unhealthy attraction to fire.

Okay. . .things I learned from watching Firefly THAT CAN BE APPLIED TO AFGHANISTAN. . .

When local color is happening, a grand entrance does not go amiss.

Arriving at the nick of time makes you big damn heroes.

If you aren't too bright, when your mouth is talkin'. . .you might want to look to that.

Some things I learned from Firefly:

- Don't harm Mal's crew and/or passengers

- Once you enter Serenity, you never leave it

- Next time your ship's engine explodes and your life support shuts down, listen to what your captain is saying without interrupting.

- It is always better to leave the job getting and delivery to Mal and Zoe.

- Never, as in do not ever, piss Mal off

- When Mal starts mouthing off, it means Zoe is getting behind you to take you out.

- Fox exec's ain't the Blue Hands, but we should sic the Blue Hands on the Fox exec's.

- Mal is a good shot.

- Never mess up one of Mal's plans, it's not good for your health.

- I'd love a ride on Serenity.

LMAO!

Oh, that was just....beautiful.

And I did think of some more..

If Kaylee says a part needs to be replaced, replace the part.

Just because a girl says she's happy you slept with her good friend doesn't mean she is. (This is really for the boys, cause the girls already know it)

Sometimes backin' down from a fight is the smartest thing you can do, iffen you want to live.

What's bad luck to you may be an act of heroicism to someone else.

The pay-off isn't always the point.

NUR


11 (just because I'm onery) thing that I learned from watching Firefly:

You don't fix faith, it fixes you.

Just because we don't have the technology to transport organs grown in a lab doesn't mean that when you arrive and they scoop them out of you that we can't put your origional (transported) organs back in.

Not explaining the plan in a moment of crisis gets Wash nicked with bullets/Simon all freaked out.

It also gets old army buddies killed.

Your patient should be dead.

When you can't think of something for the bad guy/Mal to do, have them punch Simon in the face.

If you really love someone, you'll let the hill-folk set you on fire too.

During extractions from dangerous torture situations, you ALWAYS pick your husband.

It is thoughtful to have boy-whores.

Marry yourself a powerful ugly creature, it's the only way to go.

Shiny (heh) vests are all the rage in the hospitals of the Core this season.

Those who restrain desire, do so because thiers is weak enough to be restrained.

Speak slowly and clearly when dealing with a psychopathic bounty hunter or you could convince him that you think he is a lion - and so does he.

Sometimes the threat is more effective than the follow through.

If someone shot you once, you can bet your gorram ass they mean to do it again.

Make it clear that you get paid when you do a job. Guarantee you will be heard by placing your audience under a horse.

If you are double-crossed by an attractive nut repeatedly and finally end up naked in the middle of nowhere, relax, sigh, and tell yourself it went well.

Sorry if I repeat any...OK, here are some things I learned:
1. Jayne is a girl's name.
2. You can't open the book of someone's life and jump in the middle.
3. When your medic promises never to hurt you, remember that he reserves the right to drug you if he's not comfortable with you in command.
4. Sometimes we all get a little tired of the pitter patter of tiny feet in huge combat boots.
5. There is kissing.
6. Don't make faces when a psychic says we're all dreaming.
7. Plans can work even when you smell a lot of "if" on them.
8. Black market beagles are in demand.
9. You just have to have faith in people.
10. No one can take the sky from me!

1. Don't let ignorant villagers know that you can read minds.
2. If you see guys in nitrile gloves, run!!!
3. No matter how much "progress" we make as a race, us men will still always be clueless about womenfolk.
4. When you can't walk, you crawl. And when you can't do that, you find somebody to carry you.
5. The Millennium Falcon has lousy hiding places.
6. Never wear the logo of a conglomerate that has tortured one of your shipmates.
7. In the future, religious orders will be sponsored by hair care product manufacturers.
8. You'd be amazed what three little switches can make a ship do.
9. Don't tell a mechanic that her ship is Luh-suh.
10. Having your guts scooped out is not a great way to make money.

JEBBYPAL


Someone should print out flyers to be handed out at the movie about what whill happen when you talk during Serenity. That was the funniest one yet! here goes my try:

1.) When you find out that your character has to do a lot of running, ducking, lifting and fighting, be sure to ask the costume department to hold a pair of pants in a larger size so you don't end up with an embarrassing nickname.

2.) When your sister knows a mute person's entire life story, tell others she is lying. They'll never believe she's just intuitive.

3.) If you are rich and your favorite show is canceled, buy a shitload of DVDs and maybe you'll get a movie.

4.) If you are really pretty, you can't die during a gunbattle.

5.) People juggle geese in some places for sports.

6.) If held at gunpoint, try to hire a thug to your side.

7.) Big white boxes sometimes contain people.

8.) Don't say the first name of your old husband in front of your new husband if new hubby hasn't introduced you yet.

9.) The war buddy bond is tough to crack.

10.) Crazy people don't like can labels, big hair, people who look better in red, and bounty hunters.

11.) If you wake up under your bunk ladder and are locked inside, don't make faces at the crazy girl. She really can devise better plans than you.

In the future, guns and bullets will still be the weapon of choice.

Zoe has a REALLY shiny gun.

You need to be standing more than two feet away to effectively test a walky-talky.

Tragic space dementia makes you all paranoid and crotchety.

Simon is Mal's hero, but only if he wants to be REALLY sarcastic.

If you kill your wife's nephew and hang him like a side of beef, expect an earfull at dinner.

Can't get paid if you're dead.

Can't get paid if you crawl away like a bitty little bug neither.

Its bad when River starts making sense to you.

Carved ducks and carved swans are often difficult to tell apart.

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."

Getting there in the nick of time makes you big damn heros.

Do not be excluding people. That'd be rude

Some people may want you captured alive. Sgt. McGinnis is not one of them.

When deciding to stab your captain in the back, have the guts to do it to his face.

Hearing "Take me sir. Take me hard." can be downright unsettling.

River should rub soup in her hair. It's always a hoot, and we don't all die from it.

If wishes were horses, we'd all be eatin' steak.

Big, black moustaches are traditional.

Ship like Serenity'll be with you until the day you die.

And its NOT because shes a deathtrap!

Inara has funny whorin' stories.

Jayne will never hear them.

Midgets can be deadly and unpredictable.

Jayne getting naked is NOT a good distraction.

The crew of Serenity has guns. Don't ask about brains....

Aliens are upsidedown, mutated cow fetuses.

Jayne has nothing to fear from Simon while on the operating table.

River, though, can kill him with her brain.

A pretty, floral bonnet can be a very effective disguise.

1. If a box is big enough to contain a body, it probably does.

2. The body is not really dead.

3. If a woman tells you she's glad you slept with her friend, she's lying (Duh!).

4. Guns are female. I suppose I should have known this already, but I didn't.

5. When a beautiful con artist bursts into guilty tears, she's trying to distract you so she can steal your gun (Duh!)

6. Good looking men with lots of money are apt to treat women like property, and other men like monkey feces (Duh!)

7. Beware of rustic maidens bearing bowls of wine (Duh!)

8. A geek who plays with plastic dinosaurs can be very hot in the sack.

9. Cursing in Mandarin is creative and fun and totally fools the censors.

10. Sneak an intelligent, complex, funny, beautifully imagined and performed show onto network TV, and the execs heads will explode. As far as they're concerned, people who like such "arty" shows are not desirable viewers--as in they're statistically less likely to be influenced by the sponsors' advertisements and rush out to buy Big Macs. Reality TV fans are the gullible sort they're after. Gotta keep those sponsors happy!

Some of these may have already appeared. If so, sorry.
1. When doing anything on the bridge, the 3 magic buttons make it happen.
2. If Mal ever kills you, you'll be awake, facin' him and armed.
3. Drunks are so cute... apparently.
4. If you torture/maim/kill your spouse's nephew, you'll get an earful at dinner.
5. If Mal dies, you get his share.
6. The management is NEVER responsible for anything...
7. Wearing a red sash sideways does not always mean the wearer has won the Miss Persephone Pageant.
8. Jayne likes smackin' 'em.
9. Well, a good goat would do that.
And finally...
10. Zoe is very much lacking in imagination.
Oops! Forgot this one...
11. Simon's very proud of his talent for alienatin' folk.
Heh-heh. God bless the edit button:
12. Mal only thinks he's better than people he's better than.
13. When in doubt, give a psychic a gun.
14. If someone says 'Two by two, hands of blue', PEG IT!!!
-------------------------------------------
"BADGER: You think you're better than other people.
MAL: Just the ones I'm better than."
-------------------------------------
"MAL: Gotta say, doctor, your talent for alienatin' folk is near miraculous.
SIMON: Yes, I'm very proud."

Top Ten Things I Learned From "Out of Gas"

1. When introducing Zoe to your shiny new ship, pay attention to where she's pointing when she says "What is that?" That's where you're going to be laying, bleeding someday.

2. That cake you're not eating...It's pretty much what you just ate.

3. When your psychic, psychotic sister says "Fire", she's not talking about your birthday candles.

4. Keep Zoe around. She makes a great human shield when engine parts blow up.

5. When disaster falls, mention it was your birthday. Inara will hold your hand.

6. Bester is a crappy mechanic. He likes tail too much, and that girl he was banging is such a better mechanic than he is.

7. That something that the hot warrior woman doesn't like about you...It's your mustache.

8. Beware people offering you exactly the engine part you need. They're bastards.

9. Jayne wants 10% and a bigger room. Give it to him. Your leg will thank you.

10. You don't have to die alone. If you survive, your crew will be there when you wake up.

Top Ten Things I learned from "Shindig"

1. Just because Malcolm Reynolds defends your honor at a party, doesn't mean he's going to stop calling you a whore.

2. People with english accents in the Firefly 'verse tend to be bastards. Except River, and she's only playing around.

3. Even space hookers know more about swordplay than our illustrious captain.

4. Buy Kaylee that dress and stop saying that her wearing it would be like a sheep walking on its hind legs. She looks better in it than you think.

5. You're playing cards with Jayne? And you turn your back on him? For shame.

6. The Miss Persephone Pagent has some ugly winners.

7. Watch out for the camerawork in the party scene. Especially when Mal and Kaylee get there. While its pretty, it might make you sick.

8. Stop gloating over your percieved duel victory. If you'd just stab the guy, Mr. Wing, you might've won. Not you. You got distracted by the space hooker.

9. That dress with too much foofaraw makes a great wall hanging in Kaylee's room. Or a shower curtain, I'm not sure which.

Hi,

I've been lurking here for a while. This is a great site. Here is my first post:



If you are fortunate enough for Inara to accept you as a client, then be polite and gracious, drink the tea, enjoy the experience, and afterward have the good sense to thank her and depart with no fuss. Do not bother with asking her to stay with you. Inara has no interest in becoming your wife, your mistress, your pet, or your toy. Do not offer her any petty insults and for goodness sake, don’t try to kill the love of her life right before her eyes. These things will only hurt your chances of being a repeat customer.

From “Serenity” (and Others):



Zoe is always ready. Bendis, not so much.

If you shoot down an enemy plane with a Big Damn Gun, then take care not to be under it when it crashes.

If you are a businessman with shady dealings, give everyone who works in your office a gun. Could come in handy.

The silly, klutzy guy? He’s the one to watch out for!

Don’t give Mal orders on his own ship. He hates that. But if you absolutely must get your way, then threaten to let Kaylee die. While this will work, be warned that it will upset Mal, and he may feel obliged to play a nasty practical joke on you.

If you DO get Mal upset with you, then remember to bring along your crazy sister in a box. It will garner sympathy. Either that or save Kaylee’s life. Do both, and he’ll ask you to stay as part of his crew.

A standard Companion immunization package won’t hurt.

Imprinted goods are at a discount.

If Patience doesn’t haggle over the price, then she’s planning to shoot you again.

If you have a silly name and wear a silly hat, then you WILL be shot (even if you are Jayne; it just takes a few more episodes). Yes, it’s only a matter of time for Badger!

If you ain’t weak, then that’s not nuthin’.

If Mal ever kills you, you’ll be awake, you’ll be facing him, and you’ll be armed… Unless he just sneaks up behind you, bashes you upside the head with a wrench, and tosses you out an air lock. Which method he chooses might depend on how sentimental he’s feeling at the time, or whether or not he’s had a good day.

2. Medical tape hurts. When Mal tells you not to take a gun, listen to the man.

3. Never judge a son by his father. The father might be an ass, but the son might listen to everyone's favorite space hooker.

4. The captain knows your name, Jackass.

5. Sometimes hitting a man in the chest with the blade side of a knife ain't enough. Sometimes you've got to pound him into a statue dedicated to you.

6. Even though your husband's been drinking, the story he's telling you about Jayne is absolutely true.

7. Mudders...Great human shotgun blast shields.

8. Simon, Simon, Simon...sigh. Can't you keep from saying the wrong thing at the wrong time? "Son of a bitch" aside?

9. Serenity has a pretty goofy landlock warning screen.

10. If you order a milk, and the bartender slaps it out of your hand, don't get offended. He'll probably give you something better.

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..."

From “Heart Of Gold”:

The whores ARE prettier than the whorehouse.

If you flunk out of Whore Academy, don’t worry. All you have to do is learn how to say “ain’t”, and you can get your own business.

If someone calls you “sly”, they might not be complimenting your cleverness.

If you don’t remember where everything goes, just take it real slow.

Jayne may be something of a brutish thug, but if you are his whore, he will treat you well. He will even dress up for you in his best button-down shirt, brush your hair, and show you all his guns.

You forgot to mention he'll brush your hair.

The Top Ten Things I Learned "The Train Job"

1. Crow. Big guy, but not so big he can stop a large turbine engine.

2. The sherriff of some towns can be nice guys. Get arrested, and they'll share a cigarette with you.

3. Steal the medicine, no parades. Them's the rules.

4. While Niska may be a snappy dresser and look like your grandaddy, he ain't. In fact, he's so hell bent on reputation that it isn't even safe to be his nephew.

5. Joey Bloggs...Dead. Do a little research from time to time.

6. Our favorite space hooker has a mean right hook.

7. No matter what, remember that I love you. We're married, remember?

8. Some jobs, I'd pull for free, but I ain't going to give up my share of the take. Well, maybe if I'm dead.

9. That chain of command? Kinda hard to get around that.

10. Its a good thing Jayne's so heavy. If he hadn't been, they'd have gotten him into the infirmary, and Mal would've have been skewered on Crow's ridiculous looking knife. I mean more so.

Hi, I'm brand new. This thread is worth joining the club just to participate in. I'm happy to say that I have both the time and the patience to go over the whole thread to make sure I don't have any repeaters. here goes:

-If you’re the pilot of a spaceship and you get arrested, you can always say you were flying the ship by accident.
-If you rely on luck you end up on the drift.
-If everyone always has the advantage over you, it means you are special.
-Never underestimate what a brilliant civilian doctor will do to save his deranged sister. (see Serenity, Ariel, Objects in Space...)
-Don’t be shy about killing big thuggish guys who threaten you. (read: you don’t need Greedo to shoot first).
-If you have a good pressure catch among your spare parts, you can make a formidable booby trap.
-Be careful with slave traders. They are very good drinkers.
-The AD-10 is the same machine. They just changed the plating and hoped no one would notice.
-Swinging a sword from the shoulder may be stronger, but it’s also slower than swinging from the elbow.
-Getting stabbed in the hip isn’t a total disaster if you can line up some exciting new crime.
-A Firefly will run forever with a mechanic even half awake.
-Mudder’s Milk is 15% alcohol.
-Prairie Harpies make better mechanics than surfers with body paint.
-50 platinum is about 20 Alliance credits.
-Important people don’t do field work.
-Ending up naked and stranded is no reason to think you didn’t win.
-You can get a badge for learning how to drop your weapon so that you can eat beans and get yourself shot.
-Watch out for the Warrior Woman behind you while you're sneaking up on a private who got a badge in dropping his weapon so he could eat beans and get himself shot.
-First rule of battle: Never let the enemy know where you are (of course, there are other schools of thought... )
-There is no such thing as a magical wish-granting plank.
-When you’ve had a lot of sake, you can attract the feds by singing.
-If you call your space companion a whore, she has the right to call you a petty thief.

Any petty criminal knows that the small, concealable weapons always go to the left side of the place-setting.

Top Ten Things I Learned from "Trash"

1. Saffron, Bridget...whatever. Just because she didn't shoot you when she had the chance doesn't mean she can be trusted. Didn't you learn anything the first time?

2. The Lassiter, while historic, is not a reliable weapon. That eyebrow plucker looking thing the space hooker is carrying, however, works just fine.

3. Making a man you married as part of a con shave off his beard only gets you called a "Devil Woman" and thrown off his ship.

4. You won't die from being locked in a trash bin even if you have a condition. You just won't be as hot, or smell anywhere in the vicinity of good.

5. When a con artist leaves you for dead, butt nekkid in the middle of a desert, it is perfectly alright to call her a dirty, dirty whore!

6. Cross Zoe, get knocked down. Them's the rules. Especially after you tell her to get over it.

7. Everyone loves little wobbly headed geisha dolls. Except space hookers.

8. Simon won't hurt you on his table. River can kill you with her brain. You do the math. God knows she already has.

9. Yeah, you saw YoSaffBridge with no clothes on. Yuo probably still haven't seen her nekkid. But, she, and the rest of America are going to see your "Green Apple".

10. Opening an episode of Firefly with Cap'n Reynolds nekkid on a rock muttering "That went well" is a very good way to get people to watch the flashback. I'm not gay or anything...I'm just sayin's all.

No, really, even my own father wanted to see that episode, and he don't like the show.

Maybe he's gay too...

From “Objects in Space”:


They don’t cut it off or nuthin’.

Inara is a big girl.

When it comes to the combination to the gun locker, Jayne’s mind can be as good as a post-it note.

When you think about it, a stick and a gun are pretty much the same sort of thing.

Fully loaded and safety off is a recipe for unpleasantness.

Mathemetics is deadly.

River IS Batgirl.

For goodness sake, LOCK THE DOORS!

When the bounty hunter tells you that you might find an opening and turn the tables on him, he is just messing with you. You don’t have a chance.

That ain’t a shepherd.

Sometimes, bounty hunters lick walls, shoot doctors, kick shepherds in the head, and smack space hookers across the mouth. Does that seem right to you?

Someone incorporeally possessing a space ship is nonsensical crap. Ain’t nobody can do that.

Midgets can be deadly and unpredictable. And some little men love fire.

Sometimes, River ISN’T crazy.

Even if Jayne loves you, he will steal all the covers.

Use the extra-strong boot magnets.

You don’t have to be a genius to play jacks, but it helps.

A gas giant planet, when sufficiently compressed, can substitute fine as a bouncing ball.

Always carry a remote control device keyed to your ship.

TallCardDealer,

I'd extend a welcome on behalf of the board, but I just sorta joined myself.

So, until I feel a bit more confident here, I will extend a welcome on behalf of ME.

Yeah, I loved this thread, too.

If you manage to get Simon drunk, you WON’T get him laid, but you MIGHT get him naked and singing on top of a statue of Hippocrates.

Never underestimate the genius of a madman - or the madness of a genius.

Corollary A. - Also never underestimate the damage that can be done by Fanatical Followers/Evil Henchman/Slimy Minions of the above.
Corollary B. - However, if said Fanatical Follower/Evil Henchman/Slimy Minion is being a pompous ass and you have the upper hand, it's ok to kick him into the nearest engine intake.
Corollary C. - If, of course, YOU are the FF/EH/SM, and someone ELSE has the upper hand, never be a pompous ass unless the Mad Genuis you are following has the power to kill the someone with her brain - or successfully impersonate a spaceship.

"They've gone to *plaid*!"

Ten things I learned from Firefly (some of these will be repeats):
10. You can't just open the book of a man's life and jump in the middle
9. If you've got a lot of hair, don't ever barge out of your quarters without making sure it's not flying every which way. You might scare people
8. Pain is scary
7. Even if a man dresses much better than you, he can still think you're being pretentious
6. Accidentally dumping boxes of money on a town full of poor, working-class people will get you branded a folk hero
5. If you get yourself into a peck of trouble, make sure you've got a scary-looking spaceship to back you up in case you need it
4. Even if you try to hand the doctor you're flying with over to a couple of scary men in suits with blue hands, he'll still honor his hippocratic oath to 'do no harm'
3. When confronted by wacko bounty hunters, make sure you speak clearly, cause otherwise you might end up getting a confusing lecture about lions
2. If you're just looking for a quiet drink, going into fed-friendly bars on a particular holiday might not be the best course of action
1. If you're an incredibly successful TV creator and the company who funds your other shows wants you to make another series for them, make 100% sure they understand EXACTLY what it is you're selling them before you shoot the pilot

Take my love
Take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don't care
I'm still free
You can't take the sky from me
Take me out to the black
Tell 'em I ain't comin' back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can't take the sky from me
There's no place I can be
Since I've found Serenity
But you can't take the sky from me

BLACKEYEDGIRL


Haven't been here for a while, but I had to add my bit:

10. When you can't walk, crawl. When you can't crawl, find someone to carry you.

9. God does not care how very pretty you are.

8. Terrifying Space Monkeys are no excuse to hang out with whores, err companions.

7. If I show a man my guns and he doesn't kiss me right away, eventually he will plan on sinnin' with me (even if he ain't sinned in quite some time), and most likely, takin' it nice and slow .

6. Boy-whores may or may not service girl-folk.

5. Afros may in fact cause heads to cave in, and no matter how well secured, will in fact always be there waiting.

4. When ignoring the chain of command you may get beat with it.

3. In addition to alcohol, love and sex, birthday celebrations rarely end well when Joss Whedon is involved (re: Buffy: Surprise and Innocence, Beer Bad, Angel: Cordy & Connor, Firefly: Our Miss Reynolds, Out of Gas).

2. Arguing uses up more oxygen than not talkin' at all, and if in this situation in space, you'll possibly freeze before the oxygen actually runs out.

and #1: Nothing worse than a monster who
thinks he's right with God.

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