Since there is a jayne-is-the-hero-tread around i figured the board could use a similar mal-centered thread... so here it is... just feel free to post your favorit situations or lines with mal....

i'll start right off with a line i really liked, just 'coz its very nice in a rhetorical way...


(-you'r late
-You'r lying!
-What was that?)
-You are well aware of that we landed two hours before we planned, nothing went wrong on our end so why dont we start this with you telling us whats up!

----------------------------
Well! If it aint somethin'!

Heck, just about anything he said in either the movie or the series!

The one that got me (I saw Serenity before Firefly):

Para-phrased, please correct if need be

Mal: You wanna be the captain?
Jayne: Yeah!
Mal: Well...you can't!

Also:
You hold. Hold 'til I get back.

I have a great, heterosexual, man-crush on Mal. Don't tell anyone!

One day.
One mission.

From BDM-

"Doctor, I'm taking your sister under my protection, here. If something happens to her, anything at all, I swear to you I will get very choked up, honestly there could be tears."

Inara: You came to the training house today looking for a fight.
Mal: I came lookin' for you.

And, of course, my new motto-

"I aim to misbehave."

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

Everything from the exchange between Mal and Inara during Trash is priceless.

Inara: "I'm not sleeping with you Mal."
Mal: "No, I think my keenly trained senses would have noticed."

Of course the finisher about the wobly headed dolls.
Mal: "People love those!"

I really loved the dialogue at the end of train-job when they are trying to get back the cargo and the sheriff gets them on the way back to town:

-... a man could get a job and not look to close, her learns all the details and ... than he has a choise...

-dont believe he does!

Oh man there are so many good ones. Off the top of my head...

"Lady, You're my kind of stupid."

Jayne: I married me a power ugly creature
Mal: How can you say that? How can you shame in front of new people?
Jayne: If I could make you prettier I would.
Mal: You are not the man I met a year ago.

"She'll be with ya' till the day you die." speaking of Serenity, I love OoG

Mal: The Mona Who?
Inara: You're out of your league. You should think about my offer --
Mal: I done that thinking, and you're to stay clear.
Inara: I know people in the highest ranks
of --
Mal: Jabber jabber, I ain't listening. Just 'cause you helped on the job don't make you a crook, and I don't want you jeopardizing your career over this.
Inara: The career you abhor and look down on?
Mal: I don't want you in the way a' trouble. Take it as you like.

And my signature. I just love how he just stands up for Kaylee like that. It's actually the quote that reconnected me to the 'verse. After the show got canned I didn't have money for the DVDs so my Browncoat faded a bit for a while. Then when it reaired on the Sci-fi channel, that scene was what brought back into the 'verse. My Browncoat's all better now, bright and shiny. And of course now I have the DVDs.

I know this isn't the exact quote, but it's as close as I can manage. It's a deleted scene from "Our Mrs. Renoylds".

"You want something, you either ask for it or take it. There's a lot of worlds in this verse, and the meek ain't inherited nary a one."

there is one i really admire:

-The Sash!?
-It indicates lordhood!
-aaaand it does a great job at that!

not that it is an extraordinary line, but the way it is played, its just terribly good!!!!
you know it gives you the feel that for the first time in the whole series malcom reynolds meets someone who he has to convince of himself and not like most of the time he just feels "better than" others.

how was this conversation going? i dont know it exactly any more but it must have been something like:

-I have a problem with your attitude, with you thinking that you are better that other people.
-only the people i am better than

You think you know--what's to come, what you are. You haven't even begun.


"Y'all were watchin' I take it?"
"Yes."
"Did you see us fight?"
"No."
"Trap."

I loved the way that was played, like it was the most logical argument in the world. Also, of course:

"Dear Buddha, please bring me a pony and a plastic rocket and..."

Since I'm not uptight, this just cracked me up, rather than offending me. I've never met an uptight Buddhist, actually, but if they exist, you know they woulda took that all wrong. I just thought it was funny. He does bear a strking resemblance to Santa, after all.

And, in the pilot, where he doesn't even think or hesitate, just shoots Dobson's eye out! Classic!

I know there are more, but I can't pull them outta my brainpan just now...

I've only seent he episode once, but it was real funny. I think it went something like this:

Saffron: I heard of a place where men don't appreciate their wives.
Mal: Now look, I'm not that. If anyone was to try and harm you well you kill them right back.

Mal's own little comforting words of reason. Gotta love it.
