The Wash and River quotes are perfect! I'm going to tape the Wash one to my scale and the River one to my refrigerator!

Mal- Dear Buddah, please bring me a pony and a plastic rocket...

Wash- Bye hon! Promise not to stop for beers with the fellas!

Mal- Well lady, I must say, you're my kind of stupid.

In honor of joining this group, I'm going to go home and rewatch my firefly cd's. Hopefully, I will have some good quotes to add to this thread soon!

Sometimes I wonder..."Why is that frisbee getting bigger?"...and then it hits me....

THIS THREAD MAKES ME SO HAPPY.

I like to tell myself "Time for some thrilling heroics" when I have to do something I don't particularly want to do, for whatever reason.

And I think I'm going to blame "terrifying space monkeys" anytime I have an "unproductive" food day.

I liked this one because it had a double meaning: At the end of Serenity:

Mal: You think she'll hold together?
ZoŽ: She's torn up plenty, but she'll fly true.
Mal: Could be bumpy.
ZoŽ: Always is.

Oooh, I hadn't thought of that River quote as actually applying to real life. Good one!

Of course the leaf one is also great.

Welcome Canti!

So true... glad you found FireFly. I was introduced to it a few years ago by my hubby. He's a movie buff and a Joss fan.

So glad you are here!

Hello ... Yes, I'm new to this group, but it's really nice that it exists. Firefly was like a little treasure I discovered a year or so ago thanks to a friend and I'm really very fond of it.

Anyway ... I'm a big history nut, and this quote stuck out for me so much that it's even on my Facebook page under favorite quotes:

"It's my estimation that every man who ever got a statue made of him was some kind of sumbitch or 'nother ... "
- Mal Reynolds (Firefly)

Too true :) Nobody's a saint ... would you really want to be after all?

Regards,

Canti~

Wash- "Curse you with your sudden and inevitable betrayal." I think of it when the scale isn't where I think it should be. emoticon

Another Wash quote - "I been sane a long time now, and change is good." The feeling I have now that I'm mostly in control of my eating and exercise.

Mal- "May have been on the losing side, still not convinced it's the wrong one."

This quote keeps me going. I do what I know is right even when others tell me otherwise.

And who could forget this one - Zoe- "Do you know what the definition of a hero is? Someone who gets other people killed."

Wash- "I want to go to the crappy town where I'm the hero."

Mal- "I don't think there's a power in the 'verse that can stop Kaylee from being happy."

Wash- "Curse you with your sudden and inevitable betrayal."

Kaylee: "I think it's the sweetest hat ever."

Book: "Makes a statement."

Jayne: "Yeah, yeah!"

Wash: "A man walks down the street in that hat, people know he's not afraid of anything."

Jayne: "Damn straight."

Instead of sayin' we need to put on our big boy-girl pants or suck in our lower lip... we can say we need to put on our ugly Jayne hat!! LOL!!

"No power in the 'verse can stop me." This is the only quote that pops into my head when thinking about my Spark Goals and fitness. I'm sure that there are plenty more gems that we can use from the show to focus on in our fitness journey.

Can you all help me out? What are some good ones that we can relate to what we're doing here?
