Back in September 2002, Fox ran the Firefly series in the wrong order. Consequently the fantastic space-western drama was cancelled. The dedicated fans, known as the Browncoats supported Whedon in making a film and comics based on the series. The film and TV series was known for its terrific script and strong characters. These are my top 10 Firefly and Serenity quotes.

Captain Malcolm Reynolds: Y'all got on this boat for different reasons, but y'all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything, I know this - they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, ten? They'll swing back to the belief that they can make people... better. And I do not hold to that. So no more runnin'. I aim to misbehave.

Wash (imitating dinosaur 1): Yes.. yes.. this is a fertile land and we will thrive. We will rule over all this land and we will call it.. this Land.

Capt. Malcolm Reynolds: But it ain't all buttons and charts, little albatross. You know what the first rule of flying is? Well, I suppose you do, since you already know what I'm about to say.

River Tam: I do. But I like to hear you say it.

Capt. Malcolm Reynolds: Love. You can learn all the math in the 'Verse, but you take a boat in the air that you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps her in the air when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurtin' 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

River Tam: Storm's getting worse.

Capt. Malcolm Reynolds: We'll pass through it soon enough.
