TT #17

Image nicked from Everybody lies
Thirteen of my favourite episodes of Firefly, not including the pilot Serenity which introduced all the characters and the ship. The whole ‘verse.

MAL: Now you only gotta scare him.
JAYNE: Pain is scary.

  1. The Train Job – the second pilot, cause somebody didn’t think the first was all that good! Wherein we get to see a proper bar fight, a holographic type window, a drugged Jayne, a train robbery, and Mal being slightly chippier than in the first pilot.

    JAYNE: These are stone killers, little man. They ain’t cuddly like me.

  2. Bushwhacked – Reavers! Alliance!

    JAYNE: He looked bigger when I couldn’t see him.

  3. Shindig – Pretties. Smuggling and duelling. Well I do declare

    MAL: Sure, it’s humiliating. Having to lie there while the better man refuses to spill your blood. Mercy is the mark of a great man. (Stabs Atherton in the side.) Guess I’m just a good man. (Stabs him again.) Well, I’m all right.

  4. Safe – Does River weigh the same as a duck?

    RIVER: They weren’t cows inside. They were waiting to be, but they forgot. Now they see the sky and they remember what they are.
    MAL: Is it bad that what she said made perfect sense to me.

  5. Our Mrs Reynolds – these crazy planets and their crazy wedding ceremonies. And crazy ship-stealing women.

    WASH: Some people juggle geese!

  6. Jaynestown The hero of Canton, the man they call Jaaaaayne.


  7. Out of Gas -remember that compression coil Kaylee warned you about way back in episode 1. Yeah, it bust. Which means no life support. And flashbacks.

    JAYNE: Yeah, ‘cos sick people are hi-larious.

  8. Ariel Robbing a hospital. And scanning brains. What fun. Till Jayne decides that the money really is good enough.

    RIVER: Two by two. Hands of blue. Two by two

  9. War Stories Tiffs and torture. Lots of torture.

    JAYNE: Smellin’ a lot of “if” comin’ off this plan.

  10. Trash Mrs Reynolds makes a return. And of course the job doesn’t go smooth.

    RIVER: Also, I can kill you with my brain.

  11. The Message An old war buddy shows up. There is also snow, and a funeral. Not forgetting the alien foetus in a jar. Or calf, whatever.

    KAYLEE: Nee GAO-soo NA niou, TA yo shwong mei-moo? (“Why don’t you tell the cow about its beautiful eyes?”)

  12. Heart of Gold Whores!

    KAYLEE: Look, they got boy whores! Isn’t that thoughtful?

  13. Objects in Space A bounty hunter, who isn’t a lion. A girl who may be a ship. Space. And the spaces in space. Look it all gets a little metaphysical, existential and philosophical. Isn’t it great?

    JAYNE: She killed ’em with mathematics. What else could it have been?
