I think one of my favorites is in Jaynestown when river strays across Shepard with his hair down and freaks. That hole sequence is hilar.

You have to remember Firefly was about the lower class of the galaxy, not about being in core planets. Even then, all of the planets and people were living lifestyles originating from earth.

Absolutely, camera work and the expressions on the other's faces was priceless ,few thing shown on TV.and film can make me Laugh out loud.This did One of the funniest scenes ever.

My favorite scene? When the credits were going up and the show ended. Get a clue you people! Firefly is DEAD, GONE forever!!!

All the actors are older and have gone off to bigger and better things. Grow the fuck up people!

It took a long time here, but finally someone chose the same scene I chose...hoooray! Seriously, you obviously have outstanding taste and impeccable Firefly accumen. Truth is, everyone who has responded so far has offered terrific choices & reasons why they love a particular scene. This thread has been my favorite since I joined. Thanks everyone!

Two ensemble scenes stand out for me, one in the pilot and the other in the finale.

In the pilot, I love the scene where Simon is telling the crew about River. The bit that gets me every single time is this line:

"We could have sent her anywhere, we had the money, but... she wanted to go. She wanted to learn. *voice breaks* She was fourteen."

In 'Objects in Space' I love the scene where the crew argue over River's fate. Not only do you have the dramatic tension over the very real danger the crew is facing, and some genuinely funny moments "...she's in congress?" but once again Simon says something so simple that brings the emotional impact home.

"She's just a kid. She just wants to be a normal kid."

Fantastic stuff.

Scene in Jaynestown where a small boy is looking at Jayne, his eyes are wide, staring at the hero..

Jayne, "Shake your head kid, your eyes are stuck"

Just makes me laugh.

Jayne says something about not helping people with no profit in it.

Mal, "They're whores"

Jayne, "I'm in."

Dang, this is definately a tough one. I can't pick only one... so here's a few.

Ariel: The end when Jayne is looking through the airlock and talking with Mal. Especially when they're talking about what Mal will say to the others when Jayne is dead. Awesome acting in that part... and kinda touching.

Jaynestown: When they first see the Jayne sculpture... the look on Simon's face is hilarious.

Trash: The end when Mal walks on board naked and Kaylee sees him. lol. I cracked up.

The mMessage: The whole funeral scene at the end. That was definately a tough scene to get through, since it was the last ep. honoring Firefly's cancellation.

Anywho... there are so many more... but I think those are my favorites. =]

My favorite scene, by far, has to be at the end of Trash, after the doc finishes lecturing the then-completely numb jayne, as he walks out of the room, River says "Also, i can kill you with my brain!" Jayne then opens his eyes wide in fear.

Soo hilarious.

BTY, for those of you who think firefly is dead, if enough people rally behind it, it will come back. Hollywood funds popular shows.

Remember how Star Trek came back after it was cancelled??

My favorite scene in the series is the second scene in "Our Mrs. Reynolds" where all of the crew are relaxed, Jayne and Mal get drunk, and Mal dances with the soon to be met Saffron. I've always liked the music in that scene, and the relaxed posture of the crew.

I have so many fav scenes in the show that its really hard to choose, but the scene that comes to mind right now is the scene from the pilot "Serenity".

The scene where mal tells
Simon that Kaylee is dead then Simon rushes to see Kaylee only to find out that she is healing well. Then it cuts to the rest of the crew laughing there asses off. That gets me every time.

Well, I loved 'Heart of Gold' because of the scene where we all know Mal is trying to say I love you. " I can't offer much..."

I love it because I was rooting for Mal and Inara from the beginning. Inara was obviously upset about the Nandi ordeal, but I wish she didn.t leave because it was the reason why she isn't in much of the movie and its not explained.

So...why do I always get super attached to shows long after they air on tv?
But Firefly is the best of that crowd!

My absolute favorite scene in OMR: In the corridor Mal and Book after Saffron has scampered off to cook. The Special Hell speech. Mal tells Book he has a smutty mind. Book turns to fix up the other room for Saffron, but he stops, peeks around the corner and repeats "The Special Hell."
What had me on the floor laughing was the look on Book's face as he takes a parting shot at Mal. PRICELESS!

there are a couple.

first, there's the whole chapter in eavesdown docks in "serenity" with badger, the whole basar ("good dogs"), and how the passengers get on board. i especially liked kaylee with her umbrella.

second, the shot with river picking up the gun/stick in "objects" and all the leafs in the hangar is very beautifully done

I'm a big fan of Kaylee's, so yes definitely the scene where she's hawking for passengers. Especially her conversation with Book. She's cute to begin with, but her and the umbrella with her hair up (Oh my).

There is one other scene that sticks out in my perverted little mind and that's the one in OoG thats the intro to Kaylee becoming the ship's mechanic. She did not look more delicious and cute than in any other Kaylee moment. Her reaction to being asked by Mal to come along "as long as you keep her in the air", is priceless.

Not that I'm a violently inclined person, but the scene at the end of Ariel where Mal savagely hits Jayne with the wrench, and puts him in the airlock...It's an intense scene and gives us a clear idea of what Mal will do when you mess with his family...even if you are a member of that family. I seriously believed that was going to be Jayne's final moment. It's also the scene that shows us who's boss, and why....if only we'd had more chances to see the darker side of the captain.

Pretty much any scene between Zoe and Walsh, especially the fight on the bridge in WS and the baby discussion in HoG. I really like their relationship. In most shows, the possible (Inara and Mal) or the burgeoning (Simon and Kaylee) relationships are the relationships that get most of the attention. It is the established relationships and how they are handled that interest me. Firefly did really well with the small moments. Small looks and touches that show a real commitment between the couple.

Also, it may show the sick side of me, but the torture scene in WS and the discussion of what will happen to Mal if he is left with Niska and the showing of Wash's strength.

Oh wow...so many...

Jayne always had me in stitches..but I think my favorite scene would have to be between Inara and Mal in Heart of Gold..the final scene where Inara informs him she's leaving the ship. There is a moment where you just know something special is going to happen, and when it doesn't you can feel Mal's heart drop..I know mine did. I was enveloped into that scene, a fly on the wall of impeding heartbreak. I couldn't help but scream at the tv "KISS HER DAMN IT!" perched on the edge of my seat, breath caught in my throat..not able to release it until a good few moments after fading to black..

My all time favorite scene. Well the whole episode of "The Message" is my favorite of them all. But my favorite scene would have to be the last one of that episode, when its snowing and there at the funeral. It was just crazy good. Then when I listen to the commentary on that episode and realized why they did such a good job with showing loss.

You find out that that episode is when they find out they are getting canceled. That just made me love the episode even more because you can see that all the actors are truly upset that their getting canceled and how much they love the show.

Just looking at there faces. They aren’t even talking since its just the message playing one last time. Im not one to get like all emotional over TV and what not but even before I knew that the show was canceled I was blown away at how powerful that episode was.

Too many, here's just a few:

SIMON: Can you feel your feet?
KAYLEE: Are you asking me to dance?

The look of anguish on Book's face and the break in his voice when he confesses to Inara "I think I'm on the wrong ship." I want to reach out for him and comfort him just as Inara does.

Jayne so engrossed in ogling the Councilor and Inara that he forgets to spot Book, and Book's feet coming off the ground as he struggles with the weight.

When Simon and Kaylee are sitting together on the couch so comfortably, his hand on her legs, and Kaylee touches his jaw with her toes.

Kaylee holding Book's hand in the infirmary: "He did this for me once."

Wow difficult question

The Hero of Canton song is a good one, the bit where wash says "we've gotta go to the crappy town where im a hero" cracks me up every time.

The bar fight from the train job where mal, jayne and zoe are at the edge of the cliff and serenity flys up from behind them.

In heart of gold where mal has everyone in the cargo bay telling them about the job but jayne is reluctant to go
jayne "dont know these folk dont much care to"
mal "they're whores"
jayne "im in"
Love that scene

Also from heart of gold inside the house kaylee and wash are talking
kaylee "everyones got someone, wash tell me im pretty"
wash "if i were unwed i would take you in a manly fashion"
kaylee "'cause im pretty"
wash"'cause you're pretty"

war stories where everyones waiting to see inaras client and it turns out to be a woman and jayne utters those famous words "i'll be in my bunk"

The list could go on and on in fact my favourite scenes are every single one of them from start to finish

I could easily pick one or two scenes out of EVERY episode... but since you're asking for one...

How about the pilot episode "Serenity"?

Mal: Comes time, someone's gonna have to deal with him. That sould be you. But I don't think you've got the guts... And I know you don't have the time.
Simon: What do you mean?
Mal: Kaylee's dead.
[Simon runs to the infirmary; sees Kaylee, quite alive; she waves at him]
Simon: [to himself] That man's psychotic.
[on bridge, Mal, Jayne, Zoë, and Wash are laughing histarically]
Wash: You are psychotic!
Mal: No! You shoulda seen his face. Oh, I'm a bad man.

Almost passed out laughing the first time I saw that scene... :)

Reason #1 that it's my favorite: The look on Kaylee's face when she sees Simon and waves... (she's just SO F#$%in' CUTE)

Reason #2: The reaction of Mal, Zoe, Wash and Jayne on the bridge...

Out of Gas is my favourite episode. Not only do you learn about the history of the crew and the ship, but the cinematography and how they tell that story layered in the midst of a very tense life and death struggle is just incredible.

But favourite scene...

It's really hard for me to say, because every episode is a long string of good ones, all poignant, touching, powerful, heartbreaking, and laugh out loud funny.

So I'm going to bring the comic books into this discussion, simply to contribute something unique.

In Those Left Behind, I really enjoy the scene where Fed agent Dobson from the pilot episode shows up for revenge for his lost eye and ambushes Mal, Zoë, and Jayne. "Didn't you shoot this guy in the head, Mal?" "No, you moron, the pound of metal grafted to my face, it's purely cosmetic." And then, the crew does one of their amazing turn tables on their ambushers, Mal gets a gun... AND SHOOTS DOBSON'S OTHER EYE OUT.

That just kills me, it's just so... Mal. Badass hilarious is I suppose the best description, there really aren't words. It's not often you can look at a character and think, "What a son of a bitch!" with admiration, cracking up at the same time.

Saffron: "I'm your wife."

That moment after when Mal blinks and manages to say, "buh-whuh-huh?" without uttering a peep.

That scene completely hooked me on the series and on Nathan Fillion.
