Important people don't do field work.


One of the better threads around here (ask anyone!) is the Top Ten Things I Learned From Watching Firefly thread. While I wish I could take credit for it, I can't, but, I was a contributor! I can take credit for the (mostly hijacked) Top Ten Things I Learned From Watching The Serenity Trailer thread...however, this thread, unlike that one will NOT be written exclusively in spoiler post, so, if you haven't seen the movie, you might want to stop reading now. So, here goes...The Top Ten Things I Learned From Watching Serenity!

1. I don't know what Gifted and Talented classes are teaching in the future, but, I'll be damned if I'll let my little girl go to that class just so her skull can used as a pincushion!

2. The name of the maneuver is "Barnswallow" ...Not "Bugswallow"!

3. Hey! Crazy River! You can say that they never lie down all you want...But, that was one dead ass Reaver, and he wasn't gettin' up anytime soon.

4. Fanty might be prettier than Mingo. And, they might spend hours discussing why anyone would serve on the crew of Serenity, but, it is only by Jayne's muscular butt that they'll be gettin' 40% (Not good odds)!

5. Simon! What got into you man? Has a year without sex onboard Serenity finally made them drop? I understand you're mad about River being in danger, but...you just don't slug Mal unless Nee-YOW wuh-KAI CHANG! (That's 'You want a bullet right in your throat' *from the script)

6. Mal can't know that Kaylee ain't had nothin' twixt her nethers in a year that weren't run on batteries...Jayne, however, could stand to hear a little more.

7. Fruity Oaty Bars will make a 90 pound girl go berserk and kick an entire bar's ass all on her own...But, not before she drops a big clue!

8. Nothing here is what it seems. When a space hooker tells you that isn't incense...Duck!

9. You know what the definition of a hero is? That's what I thought....bitch.

10. Love. It can do a lot of things. It can sell a monster amount of Firfly DVDs. It can make Joss fight for a movie deal. It can make Serenity fly again. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take a boat in the air that you don't love, she'll shake you sure as the turning of worlds.

Come on...you all know I'll be back with more...

Kaylee: "What's so damn important about being proper? It don't mean nothing out here in the black."
Simon: "It means more out here. It's all I have..."

Ten More Things I Learned From Watching Serenity

1. Do you really think that a mysterious Shepherd has to tell you how he knows so much about the inner workings of the Alliance? Cause, you're about to be in for a surprise...

2. "I'm a leaf on the wind...Watch how I soar." How could you not? We've seen plenty of fancy flying from Wash, but, My LORD!

3. G-32 Paxilate Hydroclorate? Is that anything like fluoride? Cause, I don't want to be a Reaver!

4. If you ever need to find River, and she's not in the same place you left her...look UP!

5. According to the Alliance...Reavers don't exist. Tell that to everyone in that damn town!

6. Don't ride in anything with a Capissen 38 Engine...You know what they do, don't you?

7. If things have really gone as bad as Mal claims they have since the end of Firefly...how did they afford the fancy new Mule?

8. When Captain Tightpants tells you to help turn Serenity into a Reaver ship...you're probably better off helping than saying anything about it.

9. If you finally get it on with the mechanic that's pined for you since day one...make sure your creepy, psychic sister isn't watching from above.

10. Sometimes, even a dead friend can find a way to help you keep The Signal going...even if he did get weirdly stabbed with a sword.

More to follow...You can't stop the signal...you can't ever...

1. It's just easier to let Jayne bring his grenades.

2. Love is more powerful than madness.

3. There is nothing 'sly' about sharing a bottle of Blue Sun.

4. You may be in your bunk, but your conversation is not secret.

5. You want a gift for the Captain that has everything? Try a pony or a plastic rocket.

6. A world without sin is a world without humans.

7. Don't argue with the crazy girl. She's either going to make *that* face, grab your balls, or take you down hard.

8. It's okay to leave them to die.

9. 'Whore' may be another way to say 'I love you', but 'I don't know if I want to leave' is tantamount to admitting that love is returned.

10. Joss has an unhealthy fixation about sex with Robots.

Actually, this isn't crazy speak at all. The Reavers were made by the PAX, the substance that made everyone else on Miranda 'lie down' and let themselves die. 10% of the population didn't 'lie down', in fact, they 'never lie down'.

She wasn't referring to the dead body in front of her, but the multitude of Reavers whose agggressive responses were increased and not decreased by the PAX.

That's how I saw it, anyway.

1. Falling on a sword is considered a "good death".
2. An Alliance sprinkler head can support at least some of the weight of a teenage girl.
3. Mal doesn't kill children, but Operatives do.
4. Don't get poetic if you're wearing a Hawaiian shirt.
5. If you're getting your butt kicked, yell out "Eta kuram na smekh".
6. Batteries truly are a girl's best friend...
7. If you see one ship coming out of a cosmic dust cloud, you can figure there are more behind it.

10)- A 90 pound girl can bring down a any muscular man with the right grip in the right place.

9)- Evil done in the name of right, is still evil.

8) - Love is a force that bends knees and strengthens hearts. Nothing can stand before it, armies, goverments nothing.

7)- Somewhere in the Alliance is a cadre training a small army of dangerous, knowledgable and eloquent black men.

6)-When a man brings a sword to a gunfight, that there is a mighty dangerous man

5)-Nothing inspires someone to fight for their life more then the chance to get laid.

4)- 'Im the leaf in the wind..watch how I soar.' may just be the most beautiful last words ever spoken on screen.

3)-Nothing can drive a man like a belief in his cause. Nothing can destroy him more completely like that belief made lie.

2)-Nothing yells self esteem issues like a name like Mr Universe

1)-Lovers fall, Utopia turns to ash. Old Shepards guide us one last time and cities burn. But the sky is still waiting to take you back.

1. Nine minutes can encompass a good amount of mind bending.

2. Looks can be decieving: a forklift on steroids may be a better mule.

3. When you're in a tight spot, throw rocks in the other guy's engine.

4. Commercials can be scary, even after the movie.

5. A year in fight school makes you mighty.

6. Walk around in your nightmares, you might learn something useful.

7. Jayne has a really big t-shirt collection.

8. Book is even more the smart alek at death's door.

9. In a pinch, any weapon can be borrowed from any other point in the Jossverse.

10. Those who live in glass houses shouldn't ask others what their sin is.

AA's?

I'd have thought she was more of a C or D girl!

Twelve spheres of unendurable brightness spalled the velvety blackness of space.

1) Don't fly in anything that has a Capissen 38 engine. Apparently they fall right out of the sky.
2) If Inara and Mal have a conversation that doesn't include a fight, it's a trap.
3) One should be a tad cautious of being a leaf on the wind.
4) If your quarry goes to ground, leave no ground to go to.
5) Being killed with a sword is weird.
6) If Kaylee tells you something needs replacing, you should REALLY listen to her.
7) If you spend an hour with Mal he can make you angry.
8) When going to meet the enemy, take the Pulse Beacon with you.
9) Simon doesn't spit.
10) I don't know is a good answer.

Never put the minds behind every major military operation in the galaxy in the same room with a psychic. Or if you do don't leave your sword at home, or rather bring a gun, or maybe some cyanide, on second thought... never put the minds behind every major military operation in the galaxy in the same room with a psychic.

When someone is angry, their eyes will be wider than if they are just fearful.

When the primary buffer panel on your ship flies off, it may make your landing pretty interesting, but you will get on the ground, that will happen pretty definately

I think of more later.

Not Serenity specific, but applies to the series as well...

1. If someone tries to kill you, you kill them right back.
2. Even the biggest, dumbest, meanest looking guy in the sky has a mom somewhere that loves him.
3. Nerve damage is not necessarily a bad thing.
4. Never underestimate love.
5. If you can't do the smart thing, do the right thing.

10. If you plan on using your Secret Vulcan Hip Pinch to immobilize a target, make sure that you verify that the nerve cluster hasn't been moved.

9. A Firefly-class midbulk transport will still fly with no primary buffer panel--but the landing might get pretty interesting.

8. Always treat a Companion considerately--she might be carrying not-incense.

7. Think twice about disparaging a distinguished veteran's war record--he might restrain himself, but his second-in-command may be rather less understanding.

6. Change the channel when Fruity Oaty Bar commercials come on--you know, just in case.

5. Grenades--better to have and not need, than need and not have.

4. Ceilings make great hiding places.

3. Buddhists get to ask for stuff for Christmas, too.

2. Erotic doll technology will be much more advance in the future.


And the number one thing I learned from watching Serenity:


1. Even in the future, computer hackers will still need to make use of erotic doll technology.

Nobody looks up.

Keep track of your sin, in case anybody asks.

Get in the vault, not on the mule!

Fanty's prettier.

If Mal starts fighting a war, you'll see something new!

Hiding under the preacher's skirts is a manly plan.

If you have a killer woman on your hands, try serving her tea and dumplings.

Some shepherds become real smart-asses when near the end.

Reaver ships have strange hood ornaments.

Just close the damn blast doors and hide, for goodness sake!

Well I didn't think they meant AA bras.

1. If the bastard's not even changing course. Don't chuckle.

2. Ion clouds mess with your scanners but Pretty pretty lights.

3. If she's locked the door, remember to leave a guard 'cause she still knows the code.

4. Make sure the guard is NOT her brother.

5. Always speak to the Captain and not the Burser. look him in the eye so you know who you're dealing with.

6. Try not to look clean when trying to blend in.

7. When fighting feral psychopathic space dudes, remember to bring a lot of ammo. Belt-fed rules.

8. If you think friends are in danger. Never bother calling, you'll be too late.

9. The captain will get further than you expect... Especially wearing that dress.

10. You don't need grenades if you're robbing the place. Only if you're occupying it... Unless there's Reavers.

Totally. It's a biggie and kinda weird but I learned a little from it.

I always thought of Mal as more of a Kipling man.

'Said England unto Pharaoh, "I must make a man of you,That will stand upon his feet and play the game;
That will Maxim his oppressor as a Christian ought to do," And she sent old Pharaoh Sergeant Whatisname.
It was not a Duke nor Earl, nor yet a Viscount --
It was not a big brass General that came;
But a man in khaki kit who could handle men a bit,
With his bedding labelled Sergeant Whatisname.'

You're welcome.

To quote John Ringo "There are only two types of professional soldiers. Those who love Kipling and those who haven't read him yet."

Pharoh and the Sergeant, Recessional, Ballad of the Clampherdown, The Bolivar, Sons of Martha and The Young British Soldier are all Kipling poems I'd associate with Firefly.
