Firefly Box Set Contest!



So I have this extra unopened Firefly Complete Series Box Set that I got last Christmas (or was it birthday?) Anyway, my husband already has it and even though I love me some Firefly, one per household is enough. I've been going back and forth deciding what to do with it but I've finally decided to give it away here on ye olde blog! Rules:

1. To enter, leave a comment on this post that is your favorite (or one of your favorite) lines from any movie or tv show.

2. In your comment, make sure I have some way to contact you, either through e-mail or Ravelry is fine too.

3. This is open to those in the cont. US only, paying loads for shipping makes me sad!

4. Entries will be accepted until I wake up on Tuesday August 5, 2008.

5. Winner will be chosen at random.


Yay, good luck!

Firefly is so much my favorite show!!!

You can find me on Ravelry as itchystitchy (also, my blog). :)

(PS My husband is the one who REALLY loves the show, but I've enjoyed what I've seen so far)

Mal: How can you say that? How can you shame me in front of new people?
Jayne: If I could make you prettier, I would.
Mal: You're not the man I met a year ago.

Firefly rocks!

Zoe: "Preacher, don't the Bible have some pretty specific things to say about killing?

Book: "Quite specific. It is, however, somewhat fuzzier on the subject of kneecaps."

Mindy said...

OK it's a long one - but I love Doctor Who, and this is my fav of all his quotes.....

The Doctor: I don't knooooow! See, there's the thing. I'm the Doctor, but beyond that.... I-I just don't know, I literally do not know who I am. It's all untested. Am I funny? Am I sarcastic? Sexy? [winks at Rose] Right old misery? Life and soul? Right-handed? Left-handed? A gambler? A fighter? A coward? A traitor? A liar? A nervous wreck? I mean, judging by the evidence I've certainly got a gob! And how am I gonna react when I see this? A great big threatening button. Ah-hah.
[sees the control matrix and runs up to it]
The Doctor: A great big threatening button which must not be pressed under any circumstances, am I right? Let me guess, it's some sort of control matrix, hmm? Hold on, what's feeding it? And what have we got here? Blood? :[tastes] Yep, definitely, blood, human blood, A-positive, with just a dash of iron. Haagh. But that means.... blood control; blood control!! Awwww, I haven't seen blood control for years! You're controlling all the A-positives. Which leaves us with a great, big, stinking problem. 'Cause I really don't know who I am. I don't know when to stop. So if I see a great, big, threatening button -which should never, ever, ever be pressed- then I just wanna do this!

Sweet! Firefly rocks!

Zoe: "No one's gonna force you to go, Jayne."

Jayne: "Good. 'Cause I don't know these folks, don't much care to."

Mal: "They're whores."

Jayne: "I'm in."

Amethyst said...

I can't enter because I'm Canadian *sniff* (I completely understand) but I wanted to post one of my favourite lines:

River (about Sheppard's hair): It'll still be there. Waiting.

LindsayDuck said...

My favorite line....

"Why Banning Miller, what a vision you are in your fine dress. Must have taken a dozen slaves a dozen days to get you into the get-up. Of course you Daddy tells me, it takes the space of a school boys wink to get you out of it again................................................(turns to Kaylee) Forgive my rudeness. I cannot adibe usless people. "

Best insult ever! :-)

It's a toss-up between

"I'm gonna live!"

and

"It looks better in red."

also

"My turn." (being the segue into a Crowning Moment of Badass Awesome

smariek said...

Oh gosh, there are sooooo many good lines from Firefly, it's hard to choose just one. But the one that stands out at the moment is when Jayne says this:

"Do you know what the chain of command is here? It's the chain I go get and beat you with to show you who's in command"

... cuz DH & I were discussing that particular line the other night.

And I've gotta love this pair about the Jayne Cobb Hat:

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

smariek said...

Forgot to mention, I'm not entering. I already have it.

BlackRayne said...

Love your contest idea (and I just so happen to need another Firefly box set since we are getting divorced and I am letting him keep ours).

Favorite movie quotes... it's really a toss up for me between "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means." and "Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die." Both are, of course, by Inigo Montoya from The Princess Bride.

BlackRayne said...

And um... I forgot to mention that I am blackrayne on Ravelry.

Whoops!

Al said...

"People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people."

-V for Vendetta (though I don't think the line originated with the movie)

Knitnik said...

Had a hard time deciding which Firefly character to quote - I love them all. But Jayne usually takes the cake, and he definitely did it with:
"You know what the chain of command is? It's the chain I go get and beat you with 'til you understand who's in ruttin' command here!"

I love when Cap'n Mal is talking to Shepherd Bush and tells him that he can keep his "Dear and Fluffy Lord'.

Elana said...

Wash: "Bao? She made you bao?"

It's now a joke with me and my best friend...

I'm giggling re-reading all these great quotes. Damn, I love me some Firefly.

OH! On the covered wagon...something about the ugliest woman evah. :-)

I've never seen Firefly, so apparently I *need* to win this contest ;)

Here's my movie quote:

"And gentlemen in England now abed Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day."

(Can't beat a script by Shakespeare! and Kenneth Branagh's "Henry V" gives me chills every time!)

Turtle said...

lol, such a cute contest idea! Honestly a thousand movies are running through my head but after the long week and the sipping on tom collins i am enjoying no specific movie lines are running through my head! smile.... the rocky horror (one of my fav;s) as well as practical magic, but right now pretty womans line where she says "people tell you bad things and you start to believe them. It's easier to believe the bad stuff" or in the hotel new hampshire's "keep passing the open windows" line.... smile...off to sip more, yeah, friday this week is also my friday!!

Turtle said...

lol, now you have my big fat greek wedding going through my head! He don't eat meat! How can he not eat meat, that ok...i make lamb!

allergicmom said...

Nobody's done a Blackadder quote yet?

Here's my favourite: "You wouldn't recognize a cunning plan if it painted itself purple and danced naked on top of a harpsichord singing 'Cunning plans are here again!'"

edina said...

I keep hearing about Firefly but know nothing about the show except it has a huge following. I'd love to win the DVDs so I can finally see it for myself. :)

I have so many favorite lines, but this is what popped into my head right now. From The Princess Bride movie: "My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father, prepare to die."

moukin said...

"He's like fire, and ice, and rage. He's like the night and the storm and the heart of the sun. He's ancient and forever. He burns at the centre of time and he can see the turn of the universe. And... he's wonderful."

From the new Doctor Who series, said about The Doctor.

Alaina said...

I haven't seen Firefly either....judging by the comments...I may have to go out and check it out...

My all time favorite line is from Tim Allen's Santa Clause II (I believe)...as Santa is trying to gain control of the sled from the "evil" Santa...on the back of the crazed reindeer "Chet"....

"Cut the chit chat Chet!"

I pee my pants every time...I dunno why that line strikes me...

"The first passage will allow the demon to manifest itself in the flesh."

"Why the hell would we want to do that?"

Okay, this one's kind of obscure: it's from Benny & Joon. Joon first sees Benny up a tree. A few days later, when they actually meet for the first time, the conversation goes:

Joon: You're out of your tree.
Benny: It's not my tree.

I love the double meaning, because both Benny & Joon are considered "mentally disabled" by society's standards. I SAID it was obscure!

Oh, I'm vikingknit on ravelry, and a friend borrowed my Firefly and hasn't given it back despite much hinting, and I SO need a loaner copy!! I'm having Firefly withdrawal!

tracytracy said...

I resisted this show for a looong time, because I knew I didn't really need another canceled show to be crazy over...I'm really glad I gave in and borrowed a friend's box set. I'd love to win one of my own!
quote I <3
Mal: I know they tell ya, you never hit a man with a closed fist, but it is, on occasion, hilarious.
