I loved the zingers. This is a great one...has much potential utility on some boards around TMF.

my favorite ... All Time

bb
Simon: I'm trying to put this as delicately as I can... How do I know you won't kill me in my sleep?

Mal: You don't know me, son, so let me explain this to you once: If I ever kill you, you'll be awake. You'll be facing me, and you'll be armed.

Simon: Are you always this sentimental?

Mal: I had a good day.

Simon: You had the Alliance on you, criminals and savages... Half the people on the ship have been shot or wounded including yourself, and you're harboring known fugitives.

Mal: Well, we're still flying.

Simon: That's not much.

Mal: It's enough.





( had a Dr appt today & at the end he said, "good to see you again"
cheered me seriously Up
I said, "AND walking!!!?"

One of my favorites:

Simon about Jayne: What do you pay him for?
Mal: What?
Simon: I was just wondering what his job is. On the ship.
Mal: Public relations.

Yeah, that was a great exchange. There were so many for such a short-lived series, but this one was really good.

This was a good one too:

Mal: I'm gettin' a little weary of this attitude, Wash.
Wash: [chuckling] Are you? Well, I'm so very sorry, sir. I guess the news that we're all gonna be purple and bloated and fetal in a few hours has made me a little snippy.
. . .
[The conversation escalates to a shouting match.]
Wash: What do you expect me to do, Mal?
Mal: Whatever you have to! And if you can't do it from here, then get a suit on and go outside on the side of the boat—
Wash: And what?! Wave my arms around?
Mal: Wave your arms around, jump up and down, divert the navsats to the transmitter - whatever.
Wash: Divert the— Right! Because teenage pranks are fun when you're about to die!
Mal: Give the beacon a boost, wouldn't it?
Wash: Yes, Mal! It would boost the signal. But even if some passerby did happen to receive, all it would do is muck up their navigation!
Mal: Could be that's true.
Wash: Damn right, it's true! They'd be forced to stop and dig out our signal before they could even go anyplace.
[Mal stares at Wash. Wash stares back, realization dawning.]
Wash: Well, maybe I should do that then!
Mal: Maybe you should!
Wash: Ok!
Mal: Good!
Wash: Fine!

Ah, yes. I remember that exchange now.

I really wanted there to be a second Serenity movie. I guess the crew is scattered all over the 'verse by now. :-(

I'm trying to pick up some of the Chinese from the show. There's a young Chinese fan of the show at my office, and he helps me with the pronunciation.

I'm just waiting for my chance to use "panda piss". :-)

And I already use "ta ma de" on occasion (not often...yet...).

Haven't had a good chance to use "mei mei" yet.

It's on Netflix.

After Breaking Bad Season 4 I'll do Firefly. Then I might have a clue as to what you guys are on about.

(I did see one episode on TV a while ago.)

They are. And they're also several years older now (which might require a gap in time in the storyline...we sci-fi fans notice stuff like that).

But I think they could do it. All the people involved knew they had something special, and they seem to appreciate their fan-base. I wouldn't want them to do it just to do it, but if they have a good story I would line up to see it. And I'm sure Joss wouldn't do it if he didn't have a great story.

Please, Joss...take me out to the black...

1pg I would line up to see it.

I would quickly hand over a hundred bucks for two tickets to Serenity II.

From your link, some Star Trek trivia. I knew most of it already. "Number 1" from the original pilot was Majel Barrett, later demoted to "Nurse Chapel" by the sexist network. She changed hair and uniform colors in the process (and developed a thing for Spock). :-)

Interesting that thousands of census forms received by the Census Bureau list a Star Trek race.
