After signing up, I went through several possible list topics, but ultimately decided to go with a list of...
My Definitive Ranking of Firefly Episodes
(Please note that I love each and every single episode of this show. And in the interest of time, I shall limit myself to one or maybe two favorite quotes from each episode.)
Harken: You fought with Captain Reynolds in the war?'
Zoe: Fought with a lot of people in the war.
Harken: And your husband?
Zoe: Fight with him sometimes, too.
13. THE TRAIN JOB
Simon: So, what are we doing?
Kaylee: Oh, crime.
Simon: Crime! Good! Okay. Crime.
12. HEART OF GOLD
Kaylee: Wash, tell me I'm pretty.
Wash: Were I unwed, I would take you in a manly fashion.
Kaylee: Because I'm pretty?
Wash: Because you're pretty.
Zoe: Captain will come up with a plan.
Kaylee: Well, that's good.
Zoe: Possible you're not recalling some of his previous plans.
Mal: The next time you decide to stab me in the back, have the guts to do it to my face.
(this was a double episode, so I'm giving myself two quotes here.)
Mal: I believe that woman's plannin' to shoot me again.
Jayne: Here's a little concept I've been workin' on: why don't we shoot her first?
Wash: It is her turn.
Zoe: I know something ain't right.
Wash: Sweetie, we're crooks. If everything were right, we'd be in jail.
7. THE MESSAGE
6. OBJECTS IN SPACE
Wash: Little River just gets more colorful by the moment. I wonder what she'll do next.
Zoe: Either blow us all 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 all don't die from it.
Mal: Help me find our man.
Kaylee: Is that him?
Mal: That's the buffet table.
Kaylee: Well, how can we be sure unless we question it?
4. WAR STORIES
Jayne: I'll be in my bunk.
(and just one more...)
River: No power in the 'verse can stop me.
Wash: We gotta go to the crappy town where I'm a hero!
2. OUR MRS. REYNOLDS
1. OUT OF GAS
Kaylee: Catalyzer on the port compression coil blew. It's where the trouble started.
Mal: Okay, I need that in captain dummy talk, Kaylee.
WHY OH WHY did Fox have to cancel this show?
All right, I have to go now. Between reliving my love for this show and last night's episode of The Walking Dead, all I want to do now is this:
See y'all next time...
