    Mine is when they enter a bar in Serenity and Kaylee complains about Simon leaving. I'd like to write it down but having seen the French version I couldn't translate it exactly as it was in the original version.

    Post it in French and let's see what we can do to translate.

    I think my favorite quote is "When you can't run, you crawl, and when you can't even do that... you get someone to carry you" from "The Message."

    Hands down best quote is in "Shindig" when Mal and Jayne are talking to Badger and Badger is telling them about the deal,

    "High class place, you might be able to get in, of course, you couldn't get invites if you fetched diamonds the size of a cow's testicles, but I got my hands on a couple"

    Mal and Jayne start to laugh,

    "......of invites"

    Gets me every time!

    French:

    Kaylee: Je n'ai rien eu entre les jambes qui ne fonctionnait pas à batteries depuis des mois, tu le savais?
    Mal: Non et nous n'aurions jamais du le savoir!

    It should be around this in English:

    Kaylee: I didn't have anything between the legs that didn't require batteries for month, did you know?
    Mal: No and we shouldn't have!

    Am I close?

    This made me laugh out loud in the theater. I was like: OMG did she just say that?

    Yeah, that's what it is. I also laughed hella loud at that. I went to see Serenity with my 10-year-old nephew and he said "Why are you laughing? I don't get it." THAT, my friends, was an awkward thing to explain.

    The ones that get me everytime are:

    Simon's speech about River, just the way he says it, so loving.... - Serenity

    MAL: One of those would feed a family for a month. Longer, if they don't like their kids too well. - Serenity

    JAYNE: You know what the chain of command is? It's a chain I beat you with till you understand who's in ruttin' command here. - The Train Job

    SHERIF: It's funny your uncle never went to mentioning the Bowden's problem. Or that Joey Bloggs ate his own gun, about eight months back.
    MAL: Did he?
    SHERIF: Yep. Blew the back of his head right off.
    MAL: So...would his job be open? - The Train Job

    JAYNE: It's impressive what 'nothing' can do to a man. Like that feller we bumped into. He's likely syuck up under our belly about now. That's what space trash does--kinda latches on the first big somethin' stops long enough. Hey, now. That'd be a bit like you and your sister, wouldn't it? - Bushwhacked

    JAYNE: Dear Diary. Today I was pompous and my sister was crazy. Today, we were kidnapped by hillfolk never to be seen again. It was the best day ever. - Safe

    PATRON: That girl is a witch.
    MAL: Yeah, but she's our witch. So cut her the hell down. - Safe

    JAYNE: That's why I never kiss 'em on the mouth. - Our Mrs. Reynolds

    SIMON: You know, I've saved lives. Dozens. Maybe hundreds. I reattched a girl's leg. Her whole leg. She named her hamster after me. I got a hamster. He drops a box of money, he gets a town.
    KAYLEE: Hamsters is nice.
    SIMON: To Jayne! The box-dropping, man-ape-gone-wrong-thing! - Jaynestown

    I know that's a lot, but there are a lot a funny and memorable lines, you gotta admit, and I even got more, but I'll save 'em for another time....

    my favorite quotes would have to be when wash opens his mouth the guy is just funny. but my most favorite wash moment is from the episode called trash. mal has entered the kitchen where the others are sitting with a new 'guest' (saffron)

    Saffron: I've managed to get a hold of his schedule for the next 18 months, a layout of the estate grounds and every security code for the place.

    Mal: saffron has the notion we can walk right in there and take the lasiter right off his shelf.

    Wash: I'm confused...

    Saffron: your asking yourself if i've got the security codes why don't i just go in and grab it for myself.

    (FUNNY PART STARTS NOW!!)

    Wash: No actually.... i was wondering.....
    WHATS SHE DOING ON THIS SHIP!!!
    didn't she try to kill us!

    Saffron: (laughing) please no one died the last time.

    Wash: were in space....how did she get here.

    Mal: she hitched

    Wash: I don't recall pulling over.

    Mal: the point is...this ain't no wobbly headed doll capper..this here is history.

    Jayne: (bangs the table with his hand) OK... i got a question...if she's got the security codes why she just walk in and grab it herself.

    Saffron: (sarcasm) good point!

    i'm laughing out loud about half way threw and didn't stop till the episode ended

    WASH IS A COMIC GENIUS!!!

    The are so many, and many I enjoy were mentioned. It's been over a month since I watched them, so I'll try to get some from memory.

    Mal: I just wanted you to scare him
    Jayne: Well, pian 's scary

    (later same ep)
    Jayne: awwww, and I was goin' to get me an ear too.

    River: My food is problimatic.

    Wash: Oh, my god, look at how horrible. Oh, and a fetal cow in a jar.

    Wash: Nice hat.
    Jayne: Yeah fechin' ain't it
    (that was the dumbest hat I've ever seen)

    River: Post holer, post for diggin' holes

    Wash: It's Okay I'm a leaf on the wind
    Mal: huh?

    Inara: No, you will be dueling with swords.
    Mal: sa-swhat?

    Inara: no, it's okay, I hope you get married and have thousands of fat babies.

    Jayne: Look free soup!

    Mal: And what are we major?
    Zoe: Big damn heroes, sir.
    Mal: Ain't we just.

    Mal: how's business?
    Inara: None of yours.

    Zoe: Captain can you take the helm, I need to take this man to our room and rip off all his clothes.
    Wash: work, work, work.

    Jayne: Can we get to the sexin' already. My john thomas is about to come off and fly around the room.
    Wash: Figures he gets the most poetical about his pecker.

    Kaylee: Oh look, they have boy whores.

    And of course the best quote was already mentioned about, "longer if they don't like their kids too much".

    I'll stop here I've taken up too much room already. But I love the show. Some of these are paraphrased, so I may not have gotten them perfect.

    I think it'd be hard to pick just one. I wish I could understand Chinese, I bet some of those lines were great.

    i don't have much now, but here are a few of mine....

    If you take sexual advantage of that girl, you're going to burn in a very special level of Hell, a level they reserve for child molesters and people who talk at the theater.-Book

    You know, they tell ya to never hit a man with a closed fist but it is, on occasion, hilarious.-Mal

    "Dear diary: Today I was pompous and my sister was crazy. Today we were kidnapped by hill folk, never to be seen again. It was the best day ever." -Jayne

    And if wishes were horses, we'd all be eatin' steak. -Jayne

    ....i'll post more later

    I LOVE the bit from Serenity when

    Kaylee goes to Simon
    'are you alright?'
    and Mal goes
    'is he alright'
    and Simon goes
    'River ae you alright and River goes
    'I think I ate a bug'
