Quote of the Day

Kaylee: Come on, admit it, it’s true.

Simon: No, I won’t, because it’s not. I use swear words like anybody else.

Kaylee: Oh, really? See, I never heard you. So when is it you do all of this cussin’? After I go to bed, or…

Simon: I swear when it’s appropriate.

Kaylee: Simon, the whole point of swearing is that it ain’t appropriate.

(Inara walks in)

Kaylee: Hey, there, Inara! Heading off for some glamorous romance?

Inara: Lets hope so. See you two tomorrow. Don’t let Mal get you into too much trouble while I’m gone.

Kaylee: Bye, now. Have good sex! (off Simon’s look) What?

Quote of the Day

Mal: So, how’s about we get to work?

Kaylee: Hey. It was your big make-out session that got us into this, sir.

Mal: I was poisoned!

Inara: You were drugged.

Jayne: That’s why I never kiss ’em on the mouth.

Quote of the Day

Inara: So, explain to me again why Zoe wasn’t in the dress?

Mal: Tactics, woman. Needed her in the back. ‘Sides, those soft cotton dresses feel kinda nice. It’s the whole… air-flow.

Inara: And you’d know that because…?

Mal: You can’t open the book of my life and jump in the middle. Like woman, I’m a mystery.

Inara: Let’s keep it that way. I withdraw the question.

Quote of the Day


Kaylee: Morning, you two.

Inara: Don’t usually see you two out and about planet-side.

Simon: Yeah, we’re… we’re trying something different today. River, be careful with that… that’s, um… What is that?

Kaylee: It’s a post-holer. You dig holes. For posts.

Simon: It’s, uh, it’s dirty. And sharp. Let’s come over here.

Firefly — Episode 5 — “Safe”

Quote of the Day


Inara: Does it seem every supply store on every border planet has the same five rag dolls and the same wood carvings of… what is this? A duck?

Kaylee: That’s a swan… I like it.

Inara: You do?

Kaylee: Looks like it was made with, you know, longing. Made by a person really longed to see a swan.

Inara: Perhaps because they’d only heard of them by rough description.

Quote of the Day


Inara: Thank you for the wine. It’s… very fresh.

Mal: To Kaylee and her inter-engine fermentation system.

Inara: Are you in pain?

Mal: Absolutely. I got stabbed, you know, right here.

Inara: I saw.

Mal:Don’t care much for fancy parties. Too rough.

Inara: It wasn’t entirely a disaster.

Mal: I got stabbed! Right here!

Inara: You also lined up exciting new crime.

Mal: It’s good to have cargo. Makes us a target for every other scavenger out there, though, but sometimes that’s fun too.

Inara: I am grateful, you know, for the ill-conceived and high-handed attempt to defend my honor, although I didn’t want you to.

Mal: Gracious as that is, looking back, I probably should have stayed out of your world.

Inara: My world? If it is that. I wasn’t going to stay, you know.

Mal: Yeah? Why is that?

Inara: Oh, someone needs to keep Kaylee out of trouble. And all my things are here. Besides, why would I want to leave Serenity?

Mal: Can’t think of a reason.

Firefly — Episode 4 — “Shindig”

Quote of the Day


Harrow: You didn’t have to wound that man.

Mal: Yeah, I know, it was just funny.

Harrow: You willing to fight that hard to protect my property, I’ll have it in your hold before midnight. (shakes hands with Mal and leaves)

Mal: (to Inara) Mighty fine shindig.

Firefly — Episode 4 — “Shindig”

Quote of the Day


Atherton: Inara. Inara!

Harrow: You’ve lost her lad. Be gracious.

Atherton: You set this up, whore. After I bought and paid for you. I should have uglied you up so much no one else’d want you.

Mal: See how I’m not punching him? I think I’ve grown.

Atherton: Well get ready to starve. I’ll see that you never work again.

Inara: Actually, that’s not how it works. You see, you’ve earned yourself a black mark in the client registry. No Companion is ever going to contract with you, ever again.

Harrow: You’ll have to rely on your winning personality to get women. God help you.

Firefly — Episode 4 — “Shindig”

Quote of the Day


Harrow: He’s down. You have to finish it, lad. You have to finish it. For a man to lie beaten, and yet breathing? It makes him a coward.

Inara: It’s humiliation.

Mal: Sure, it’s humiliating. Having to lie there while the better man refuses to spill your blood. Mercy is the mark of a great man. (lightly stabs Atherton in the stomach) Guess I’m just a good man. (stabs him again) Well, I’m all right.

Firefly — Episode 4 — “Shindig”

Quote of the Day


Mal: Don’t take his offer.

Inara: What?

Mal: Don’t do it. Because in the case it happens it means he’s the fella that killed me and I don’t like fellas that kill me, just in general. I said before I don’t have call to stop you, and that’s true, but anyways, don’t.
