Firefly has the funniest script so I decided to write some of it up. Feel free to contribute

"I swear by my pretty flower bonnet I will end you" (Mal)

Kaylee: "Is that him?"
Mal: "That's the buffe table"
Kaylee: "But how can we be sure unless we question it?" (Kaylee and Mal in 'Shindig')


"Dear Diary, Today I was pompous and my sister was crazy... Today we were kidnapped by hillfolk never to be seen again. It was the best day ever!" (Jayne reading Simon's diary)

The Jayne Song
Jayne, the man they call Jayne
He robbed from the rich and he gave to the poor
He stood up to the man and he gave him what for
Our love for him now
May be hard to explain
For the hero of Cayneton
The man they call Jayne

I have so many. (I think a lot of people here probably do) Off the top of my head, I love it when Wash says "We gotta go to the crappy town where I'm the hero!" in Jaynestown. Cracks me up every time.

Wash is always so funny I like it when he says to Kaylee

Wash: "Were I unwed I would take you in a manly fashion"
Kaylee: "'Cause I'm pretty?"
Wash: "Cause your pretty"

Just about every line in the series is quotable.
Some of my favorite are:

"Every well bred petty criminal knows that the small concealable weapon goes to the left of the place setting." Innara Heart of Gold.

"Something about him bothers me." Zoe Out of Gas

"Don't tell them what I did" Jayne Ariel.

This stick in my head because they are the most recent episodes that I have rewatched.

Mal: "This is over, you and me are gonna have a personal chat."
Simon: "Won't that be fun. Dope her."

Mal: "Gotta say, doctor, your talent for alienatin' folks is near miraculous."
Simon: "Yes, I'm very proud."

Wash: "Oh my God, it's grotesque! Oh, and there's something in a jar."

Simon: "This may come as a shock, but I'm actually not very good at talking to girls."
Zoe: "Why, is there someone you are good at talking to?"

I could go, but I won't, there's just too gorram many!

"I love my captain."

Anything that comes out of Wash's mouth is a favorite of mine. There are so many others, but to quote a few:

"My sister's a ship. We had a complicated childhood." - Simon, Objects in Space

"But she was naked and all...articulate!" Mal, Our Mrs. Reynolds

Oh, and Simon's speech from Serenity where he first tells the crew about River and the Academy. I don't know why, I just love that part



"We will rule over all this land, and we will call it... 'This Land'."

One of my favorite episodes is "Our Mrs. Reynolds." This scene takes place after Book lectures Mal on what will happen to him if he were to take advantage of her (my quote above). Ya'll know the scene, where she's naked and all...articulate. Poor guy...damn lucky girl though!!!

Saffron: Leave me at the nearest port, never look on me again, I'll make my way with the strength you've taught me...only let me have my wedding night.

Mal: I'm gonna go to the special hell...

My favorite quote also comes from "our Mrs. Reynolds after the discussion on Saffron's poisonous lipstick, Jayne says "That's why I never kiss them on the mouth" He doesn't either. Not with any of the ladies we've seen him with.
What a thing to say!

And a quote within a quote:

"Shepherd Book always said, "If you can't do something smart, do something right.""

I also like it when they are in his cabin after he wakes up and Zoe says something like: "So you did kiss her", and Book says "Isn't that....Special"

I love that line too!
I find the scene with Zoe and Wash discussing River to be brilliant:

Wash: "Psychic, though? That sounds like something out of science fiction."
Zoë: "We live in a space ship, dear."
Wash: "So?"

Wash: Little River just gets more colorful by the minute. What will she do next?
Zoe: Either blow us up or rub soup in her hair. It's a toss-up.
Wash: I hope she does the soup thing. It's always a hoot, and we don't all die from it.



And the outtakes make for the best quotes

"Dammit Mal, I forgot my line."~Jayne

MAL: Zoe, you and Simon are gonna rope em together. Five or six of em. I want em laid on out on the nose of the ship.
SIMON: Are you insane?
MAL: Put Book front and center. He's our friend; we should honour him. Kaylee, find that kid who's taking a dirt nap with baby Jesus. We need a hood ornament. Jayne! Try not to steal too much of their shit.

WASH: "No... I was wondering... WHAT'S SHE DOING ON THIS SHIP?! Didn't she try to kill us?"

Mal: "You do that, then you best say farewell to your dear fluffy lord."

Operative: "Do you know what your sin is, Mal?"
Mal: "Oh hell, I'm a fan of all seven. But right now, I'll have to go with Wrath"

Mal: "How's business?"
Inara: "None of yours."

Wash: "Actually I was fired... from a fry-cook opportunity."

And my favourite dialogue of the whole series:

Wash: "Hell Mal, I wish you had slept with her, then at least she'd be over it."
Mal: "Oh you want me to sleep with her? Would that make you feel better?"
Wash: "Damn right!"
Mal: "Oh, I imagine it would do wonders for her too."
