That show is, of course, Firefly, Joss Whedon's epic and sadly short-lived space western which follows the adventures of a renegade crew as they travel the galaxy looking for work and the occasional bar fight (usually on U-Day).
This is the third year I've featured Firefly on F Day (and I will continue to feature Firefly on this day every year I participate in the A to Z Challenge) and each year I pick three episodes to highlight.
Here are this year's selections:
1. The Train Job
Inara: What did I say to you about barging into my shuttle?
Mal: That it was manly and impulsive?
Inara: Yes, precisely. Only the exact phrase I used was 'don't.'
Jayne: Time for some thrilling heroics.
Mal: They tell you never to hit a man with a closed fist, but it is, on occasion, hilarious.
2. War Stories
Jayne: I'll be in my bunk.
River and Kaylee: No power in the 'verse can stop me.
Zoe: Preacher, don't the Bible have some pretty specific things to say about killing?
Book: Quite specific. It is, however, somewhat fuzzier on the subject of kneecaps.
Jayne: I'm smelling a lot of 'if' coming off of this plan.
3. The Message
Wash: A man walks down the street in that hat, people know he's not afraid of anything.
Zoe: First rule of battle, little one? Never let them know where you are.
Mal [comes running and shouting and shooting]: Woo-hoo! I'm right here! I'm right here! You want some of this?Yeah, you do! Come on! Come on!
Zoe: 'Course, there are other schools of thought.
So that's going to do it for me today. Are you a Browncoat? If so, what are your favorite episodes/moments?
Have a shiny weekend, everyone!!
