Mine's Rivers line, after Simon's gotten shot.

"You protect me, you'v always protected me. My turn."



Jayne: "Testing, testing. Captain, can you hear me?"
Mal: "I'm standing right here."
Jayne: "You're coming through good and loud."
Mal: " 'Cause I'm standing right here."

hmm... mine is the whole one-take shot with everyone in it. it's hi-larious!

[As Serenity begins a fiery dive into atmo, Mal hears a loud metallic clank.]
Mal: What was that?
Wash: Did you see that?
Mal: Was that the primary buffer panel?
Wash: It did seem to resemble…
Mal: Did the primary buffer panel just fall off my gorram ship for no apparent reason?
[Serenity shudders.]
Wash: Looks like.
Mal: I thought Kaylee just checked the entry couplings. I have a very clear memory of it!
Wash: Yeah well, if she doesn't give us some extra flow from the engine room to offset the burn-through, this landing is going to get pretty interesting.
Mal: Define interesting!
Wash: [deadpan] "Oh god, oh god, we're all gonna die"?
Mal: [on the ship intercom] This is the captain, we have a lil' problem with our entry sequence, so we may experience some slight… turbulence, and then… explode. [to Wash] Can you shave the vector?
Wash: I'm doing it! It's not enough.
Mal: Just get us on the ground!
Wash: That part will happen pretty definitely.
Jayne: We're gonna explode? I don't wanna explode!
Mal: Jayne, how many weapons you plan on taking? You only got the two arms.
Jayne: Well, I just get excitable as to choice. Like to have my options open.
Mal: I don't plan on any shooting taking place during this job.
Jayne: Yeah, well what you plan and what takes place ain't ever exactly been similar.
Mal: No grenades.
Jayne: Huh…? Aw!
Mal: No grenades!
Zoë: We crashing again?
Mal: Talk to your husband. Mule prepped?
Zoë: Good to go, sir. Just loading her up.
Zoë: Those grenades?
Jayne: Yeah, Captain doesn't want them.
Zoë: Jayne, we're robbing the place. We're not occupying it.
Mal: Kaylee! Kaylee, what in the sphincter of hell are you playing at? We got the primary buffer panel coming right—
Kaylee: Everything's shiny, Cap'n. Not to fret.
Mal: You told me those entry couplings would hold for another week!
Kaylee: That was six months ago Cap'n.
Mal: My ship don't crash. [If] she crashes, you crashed her.
Mal: Doctor. Guess who needs a to get inocced before we hit planet-side. [Serenity shudders.] Bit of a rockety ride. Nothing to be worried about.
Simon: I'm not worried.
Mal: Fear is nothing to be ashamed of, Doctor.
Simon: This isn't fear. This is anger.
Mal: Well, kind of hard to tell one from t'other, face like yours.
Simon: Well, I imagine if it were fear, my eyes would be wider.
Mal: Hmm, I'll keep a lookout for that next time.
Simon: You're not taking her.
Mal: No, no! This is not a thing I'm interested in talking over with—
Simon: She is not going with you, and that's final.
Mal: I hear the words "that's final" come out your mouth ever again, they truly will be… This boat is my home. You all are guests on it.
Simon: Guests? Now I earned my passage, Captain—
Mal: —and it's time your little sister learned from your fine example.
Simon: I have earned my passage treating bullet holes, knife wounds, laser burns—
Mal: Some jobs are more interesting than others.
Simon: —and you want to put my sister in the middle of that.
Mal: Didn't say "want." Said "will." It's one job, Doc. She'll be fine.
Simon: She's a seventeen year old girl. a mentally traumatized seventeen—
Mal: She's a reader. Sees into the truth of things. Might see trouble before it's coming. Which is of use to me.
Simon: And that's your guiding star, isn't it? What's of use.
[Serenity shudders.]
Mal: Honestly, Doctor I think we may really crash this time anyway.
[Simon inoculates Mal.]
Simon: Do you understand what I've gone through to keep River away from the Alliance?
Mal: I do, and it's a fact we here have been courteous enough to keep to our own selves.
Simon: Are you threatening to—
Mal: I look out for me and mine. That don't include you 'less I conjure it does. Now you stuck a thorn in the Alliance's paw. That tickles me a bit. But it also means I got to step twice as fast to avoid them and that means turning down plenty of jobs. Even honest ones. Put this crew together with the promise of work which the Alliance makes harder every year. Come a day there won't be room for naughty men like us to slip about at all. This job goes south, there well may not be another… So here is us, on the raggedy edge. Don't push me, and I won't push you. Dong-luh-mah? [Chinese: "Are we clear?"] Ni cho lyen, yo may yo? [Chinese: "Is that your worried face?"]
Mal: Zoe, Wash gonna straighten this boat out before we get flattened?
Zoe: Like a down in a feather, sir. No one flies like my mister.
Simon: River.
River: I know, we're going for a ride.




That's awesome! and hi-larious!

The end of the movie when Mal sits in Wash's seat. The first thing he does is flip Wash's three switches that he uses for everything...I loved that little touch, which just made me all teary-eyed again!

I'm the third person, I believe, to post something similar to this, so I won't quote it again, but my favorite scene from Serenity is the opening scene (after River's escape and The Operative, of course) between Mal and Wash. My best friend and I have learned the whole scene and we quote it at random in the middle of our conversations. I love it!

BigWolf18 -- I couldn't agree more on your tag line. Alan Tudyk is AMAZING! I can't believe I'd never heard of him before I saw the movie.

My favorite has to be one of Kaylee's from TBDM when Zoe, Jane, Simon, River and Kaylee are about to make a stand against the reavers.

Simon (to Kaylee): I just wanted to keep River safe. Spent so much time on Serenity ignoring anything ... that I wanted for myself. My one regret in all of this ... is never being with you.

Kaylee: With me? You mean to say, as ... Sex?

Simon: I mean to say.

*Kaylee: Hell with this. I'm gonna live.

I love that whole part. Each person's interrogation fits their character so well.

Jayne's is the best, though. I always crack up, too. He's just so funny there!

Not a problem, Dayve!

I think it's worthy of being mentioned twice. But then, they all are.

dang, I forgot a couple more I love:

"Yes, I've read a poem. Try not to faint."

"And don't ride in anything with a Capissen 38 engine, they fall right out of the sky."

There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.


There are too many great lines in the BDM to pick just one, but I will offer up one that no one else has mentioned. The line is not that great in and of itself, but its strength is in Adam's delivery.

"Hey! I'm talkin' at you!" as Mal is walking away from him during their talk after rescuing Inara.

As for a purely visual scene, my favorite is just before the Reaver attack at the end, as we see an overhead shot of Zoe loading her gun. Her actions are so deliberate you know what is on her mind, killing as many of them as she possibly can to avenge Wash.

I looove that shot of Zoe. Absolutely beautiful work in that scene, on the part of Gina Torres (sp?) and Joss. There are other Zoe scenes like that (mainly in the show), with no actual words but deliberate actions that clearly portray what she's thinking, what her intentions are, etc. ... but that one is my favorite.
