Quote of the Day

Mal: Well, look at this! Appears we got here just in the nick of time. What does that make us?

Zoe: Big damn heroes, sir.

Mal: Ain’t we just. Sorry to interrupt, folks. Y’all got something that belongs to us and we’d like it back.

Patron: This is a holy cleansing. You cannot think to thwart God’s will.

Mal: Y’all see the man hanging out of the spaceship with the really big gun? Now I’m not saying you weren’t easy to find. It was kinda out of our way, and he didn’t want to come in the first place. Man’s lookin’ to kill some folk. So really it’s his will y’all should worry about thwarting. (to Simon) Gotta say, doctor, your talent for alienatin’ folk is near miraculous.

Simon: Yes, I’m very proud.

Mal: Cut her down.

Patron: That girl is a witch.

Mal: Yeah, but she’s our witch. So cut her the hell down.

Quote of the Day

Zoe: You sanguine about the kind of reception we’re up to receive on an Alliance ship, Cap?

Mal: Absolutely…. What’s sanguine mean?

Zoe: Sanguine. Hopeful. Plus, point of interest, it also means bloody.

Mal: Well, that pretty much covers all the options, don’t it?

Kaylee: We’re headed for help… right?

Zoe: Captain’ll come up with a plan.

Kaylee: That’s good. Right?

Zoe: Possibly you’re not recalling some of his previous plans.

Quote of the Day

Mal: This is the last time. Last time with cows. Hear there was an idea regarding beagles? They have smallish droppings?

Zoe: I believe so, sir. Also, your disreputable men are here.

Mal: Better go take their money.

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


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


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?

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.
