Top Nerdy 10: Firefly Quotes Edition

Greetings all you shiny nerds, gather around for another Top Nerdy Ten! Now I’ve been waiting for a while to break out this list of my favourite quotes from one of my all-time favourite show… FIREFLY! *ahem* If I actually had my way, I’d probably quote the entire glorious season of the show, but I won’t (you’re welcome).

10. “Dear Diary, today I was pompous and my sister was crazy.”

Obviously Jayne is reading Simon’s diary verbatim.

9. “No power in the verse can stop me.”

One must never mess with River. Never.

8. “If I were an unwed man.”

This is a compliment from Wash. What a man.

7. “Ten percent of nothing is… Let me do the math here.”

The math most definitely adds up. A+, Jayne.

6. Zoe: “Big damn heroes.”

Ain’t they just?

5. River: “I can kill you with my brain.”

And she will. The best part of the exchange is Jayne’s reaction.

4. Mal: “I swear by my pretty floral bonnet, I will end you.”

It absolutely infuriates me how Mal can pull off this entire “Little House on the Prairie” ensemble flawlessly.

3. Mal: “I aim to misbehave.”

2. “You’re going to burn in a very special level of hell.”

This warning needs to be placed in every venue that invites any live productions to grace their stage. That “special level”.

1. “Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!”

I adore Wash (do not talk to me about Serenity, just don’t) and this scene I’ve watched way too many times. I will never get sick of it.

Bonus: “Shiny.”
