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.

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.

Firefly – Episode 3 – “Bushwhacked”

Quote of the Day


Zoe: Proximity alert. Must be coming up on something.

Wash: Oh my god! What can it be?! We’re all doomed! Who’s flying this thing!? … Oh right, that would be me. Back to work.

Quote of the Day


Mal: What the hell?

(Inara punches him.)

Inara: Don’t you dare speak to me. Sheriff, I want this man bound by law at once. That’s assuming he hasn’t been already?

Sheriff: No one’s been bound, not yet.

Inara: Thank God you stopped them. (to Mal) Did you honestly think you could access my accounts and I wouldn’t find you? And Zoe, what would your husband say if he knew you were here?

Zoe: I… I was weak.

Sheriff: So I take it they ain’t newlyweds?

Inara: Hardly. Malcolm’s my indentured man, with three years left on his debt. I imagine we’ll have to add another six months after this little adventure.

Sheriff: (re: onlookers) You’ll have to pardon them. Don’t think a one of ’em’s ever seen a registered Companion before.

Inara: I apologize for my manner.

Sheriff: Oh, not a bit.

Inara: Should I contact my ship? Do you need to hold them very much longer?

Sheriff: Looks to me like we’re about done here. I, uh. We had some unrelated trouble. His story had kind of an odor to it.

Inara: Yes, it’s not the only thing about him that does. Thank you, very much Sheriff. (to Mal and Zoe) Come along.

Firefly – Episode 2 – “The Train Job”

Quote of the Day


Zoe: Sir, is there some information we might maybe be lacking as to why there’s an entire fedsquad sitting on this train?

Mal: Doesn’t concern us.

Zoe: It kinda concerns me.

Mal: I mean they’re not protecting the goods. If they were, they wouldn’t be letting people past ’em.

Zoe: You don’t think that changes the situation a bit?

Mal: I surely do. Makes it more fun.

Zoe: Sir? I think you have a problem with your brain being missing.

Mal: Come on. We stick to the plan. We get the goods, we’re back on Serenity before the train even reaches Paradiso, only now we do it under the noses of twenty trained Alliance Feds. And that makes ’em look all manner of stupid. Hell, this job I would pull for free.

Zoe: Can I have your share?

Mal: No.

Zoe: If you die, can I have your share?

Mal: Yes.

Quote of the Day


Mal: My thanks Wash, nice save as always.

Wash: A pleasure.

Mal: And how are our passengers?

Kaylee: They’re fine. So, what happened? Was there a terrible brawl?

Zoe: Oddly enough, there was.

Wash: Are you gettin’ my wife into trouble?

Mal: Wha? I didn’t start it! Just wanted a quiet drink.

Zoe: Funny, sir, how you always seem to find yourself in an Alliance-friendly bar come U-day, looking for a “quiet drink.”

Mal: See, this is another sign of your tragic space dementia, all paranoid and crotchety. Breaks the heart.

Quote of the Day


Lund: Hey, you gonna drink t’the Alliance wi’ me? Six years today, the Alliance sent the browncoats running, pissing their pants. Y’know, your coat is kinda a brownish color.

Mal: It was on sale.

Lund: You didn’t toast? Y’know, I’m thinkin’ you one of them independents

Mal: And I’m thinkin’ you weren’t burdened with an overabundance of schooling. So why don’t we just ignore each other, til we go away?

Lund: The Independents were a bunch of cowardly inbred pisspots. Shoulda been killed off of every world spinnin’.

Mal: Say that to my face.

Lund: I said, you’re a coward, and a pisspot. Now what are you gonna do about it?

Mal: Nothin’. I just wanted you to face me so she could get behind ya.

(Zoe decks him)

Mal: Drunks are so cute.
