I often use Firefly (and Highlander) quotations in everyday conversation, just to get peeps attention so I can turn them on to it.
(Yes, I'm insidious and evil. But that's how you like me.)

But for those that don't think that way, help out by sharing your favorite quotations and situations in which you've used them!

For instance, we're doing inventory at work. It's a beastly hell job and my employees are about to cry. Heck, I'm about to cry!
Today, as we were dealing with yet another glitch, I just calmly said, "There's obstacles in our way and we're gonna deal with them, one by one."

If someone wants me to do something and one of the people disagrees and I would say "I aim to misbehave."

My favorite is if something smells weird I'll say "Smells like crotch."

I got one more.

I was playin' Ace Combat 5 and one of my friends was talking bad about my flyin' and I said "I'm a leaf on the wind, watch how I soar" as I flew under a really low bridge and started flyin between a bunch of boats without crashin'.

Whenever someone says something that's not true, I like to toss out "My muscular buttocks it is"

Also, when someone comments on how messy my room is, I blame the "terrifying space monkeys"

Ah, terrifying space monkeys. So convenient.

I always like to say, "Well, then. Today's a day I'll feel good to be me." Always good to use when being praised excessively/unnecessarily.

Also use, "Sometimes a thing gets broke, can't be fixed."

Oh, and my wife ocassionally hear's me say, "Don't fall asleep--sleepiness is weakness of character, ask anyone." Of course, I usually say that on the other side of the event than Wash...

I've referred to something as a piece of go se in class (I'm a teacher. I swear, it just came out.)

I've trained our IT guy to respond to "define interesting" with "Oh, God, oh, God, we're all going to die?"

Just today, I was chatting with a fellow instructor and a mob of new students came by led by our program director. He introduced us and said all sorts of nice things and I replied, "We're just happy to be doin' good works."

I use episodes of Firefly as a reward for good attendance.

Mal: If anyone gets nosy, you know, just… shoot 'em.
Zoë: Shoot 'em?
Mal: Politely.

My respect for all of you is certainly coming to a middle
