Quote of the Day

Book: Who’s the new recruit?

Zoe: Everybody, I want you all to meet… Mrs. Reynolds.

Kaylee: You got married?!

Simon: Well, that’s, uh… Congratulations.

Wash: We’d always hoped you two kids would get together… Who is she?

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.

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.

Quote of the Day


Zoe: I thought you wanted to spend more time off-ship this visit.

Wash: Out there is seems like it’s all fancy parties. I like our party better. The dress code is easier and I know all the steps.

Zoe: I’d say you do at that.

Wash: Don’t fall asleep now. Sleepiness is weakness of character. Ask anyone. 

Zoe: It is not.

Wash: You’re acting captain. Know what happens you fall asleep now?

Zoe: Jayne slits my throat and takes over.

Wash: That’s right.

Zoe: And we can’t stop it.

Wash: Well, I wash my hands of it. It’s a hopeless case. I’ll read a nice poem at the funeral. Something with imagery.

Zoe: You could lock the door and keep the power-hungry maniac at bay.

Wash: Oh, no, I’m starting to like this poetry idea now. “Here lies my beloved Zoe, my autumn flower, somewhat less attractive now she’s all corpsified and gross…”

Quote of the Day


Kaylee: The only place I seen somethin’ so nice is some of the things Inara has.

Mal: Well, we best be movin’.

Zoe: I guess she needs all that stuff, the life she leads.

Kaylee: Well, sure. Sometimes the customers buy her things. Some real rich men.

Mal: Come on! These ain’t feathers I’m toting here, ya know?

Kaylee: I like the ruffles. Inara gets to wear whatever she wants.

Mal: What are you going to do in that rig? Flounce around the engine room? Be like a sheep walking on its hind legs.

(Kaylee walks off, hurt. Zoe gives Mal a death stare and takes his bag from him.)

Zoe: See you on the ship, Captain.

(Zoe, Wash and Kaylee board the mule and leave.)

Jayne: Is she mad or something?

Firefly – Episode 4 – “Shindig”

Quote of the Day


Kaylee: Oh, look at the pretties!

Wash: What am I looking at, the girls or the clothes?

Jayne: There’s girls?

Zoe: The clothes, please.

Kaylee: Say, look at the fluffy one.

Zoe: Too much foofaraw. If I’m going to wear a dress, I’d want something with some slink.

Wash: You want a slinky dress? I can buy you a slinky dress. Captain, can I have money for a slinky dress?

Jayne: I’ll chip in.

Zoe: I can hurt you.

Quote of the Day

Wash: Seem to you we cleared out of Santo in a hurry?

Zoe: Seems we do that a lot. Heard tell though, we’re going to stay a while on Persephone.

Wash: Shiny.

Zoe: Yeah? Thought you’d get land crazy that long in port.

Wash: Probably, but I’ve been sane a long while now, and change is good.

Mal: (entering the bridge) Well, ain’t that a joyful sight?

Wash: Gotta love a sunset.

Zoe: Starting to get familiar too, like a second home.

Mal: Persephone ain’t home. Too many people we got to avoid. Re-supply, look for work, move along. Sniff the air, we don’t kiss the dirt.

Zoe: Wasn’t planning on the dirt-kissing, sir.

Wash: Besides, I wouldn’t stand for it anyway, Captain, jealous man like me. (alarm sounds) Closing in.

Zoe: Planet’s coming up a mite fast.

Wash: That’s just cause, I’m going down too quick. Likely crash and kill us all.

Mal: Well, that happens, let me know.

Quote of the Day


Jayne: Tell you what I think. I think that fellow we ran into did everyone on board, killed them all, then decided to take a swim through space, see how fast his blood would boil out his ears.

Wash: You’re a very “up” person.
