Quote of the Day

Kaylee: Captain, don’t you think Simon should come with us?

Simon: What? Oh, Kaylee, I don’t—I don’t think that…

Book: You go on, boy. See the sights. I can watch over your sister. I believe we’ve been developing a rapport.

(River acts all sweet, innocent, and well-behaved…)

Simon: I—I don’t know, River can be…

Book: Go on. I’m a Shepherd, after all. I should be able to keep my eye on a flock of one.

Mal: I’m not going that far, Doctor, and you might maybe make yourself useful.

Jayne: Come again?

Mal: The management here don’t take kindly to sight-seers, which is why we’re posing as buyers. There ain’t a one of us looks the part more than the good Doctor. I mean, the pretty fits… soft hands, definitely a moneyed individual. All rich and lily-white, pasty all over…

Simon: All right. Fine. I’ll go. Just stop describing me.

Firefly — Episode 7 — Jaynestown

Quote of the Day

Mal: She’s a nice girl.

Book: Seems very anxious to please you.

Mal: Well, that’s their way, I guess.

Book: I suppose so… If you take sexual advantage of her, you’re going to burn in a very special level of hell. A level they reserve for child molesters and people who talk at the theater.

Mal: What — I am not… preacher, you got a smutty mind!

Book: Perhaps I spoke out of turn.

Mal: You may perhaps I’m thinking!

Book: I apologize. I’ll make her up a room in the passenger dorm.

Mal: Good.

(Book leaves, then pops his head back in a moment later.)

Book: The special hell.

Firefly — Episode 6 — “Our Mrs. Reynolds”

Quote of the Day

Mal: I’m sorry. You have very nice qualities, but I didn’t ever marry you.

Book: I believe you did. Last night.

Mal: (goes over to Jayne) How drunk was I last night?

Jayne: Well I dunno. I passed out.

Firefly — Episode 6 — “Our Mrs. Reynolds”

Quote of the Day

Mal: Hey. Stay with me, Shepherd.

Book: That’s… that’s quite a lot of blood, isn’t it?

Mal: Just means you ain’t dead.

Book: Afraid I might be needing a preacher.

Mal: That’s good. You lie there and be ironical.

Firefly — Episode 5 — “Safe”

Quote of the Day


Jayne: Yah! Get along!

Mal: You know, they walk just as easy if you lead ’em.

Jayne: I like smackin’ ’em.

Book: Hope this corral’s strong enough to hold them. “Shepherd’s” a purely figurative title, you know.

Zoe: Next time we smuggle stock, let’s make it something smaller.

Wash: Yeah, we should start dealing in those black-market beagles.

Firefly — Episode 5 — “Safe”

Quote of the Day


Jayne: We was just about to spring into action, Captain. Complicated escape and rescue op.

Wash: I was going to watch. It was very exciting.

Firefly — Episode 4 — “Shindig”

Quote of the Day


Book: A duel?

Wash: With swords?

Simon: Captain’s a good fighter, he must know how to handle a sword.

Zoe: I think he knows which end to hold.

Firefly – Episode 4 – “Shindig”

Quote of the Day


Book: Shouldn’t we report this?

Mal: To who? Alliance? Right. They’re going to run out here lickety-split and make sure these taxpayers are okay.

Book: Then we’ll have to.

Jayne: If there’s folks on board in need of help, why ain’t they beaming no distress call?

Zoe: It’s true, there’s no beacon.

Mal: Which means it’s likely no one’s looking to find her.

Book: All the more reason for us to do the right thing.

Jayne: How about you just say a prayer when we slide on by.

Book: Shall I remind you of the story of the Good Samaritan?

Mal: I’d rather you didn’t. But we’ll check it out. See if there are survivors. If not, then, well no one’s going to mind if we take a look around, see if there’s not something of value they might have left behind.

Jayne: (Suddenly “concerned”) Yeah, no, uh, someone could be hurt.
