Even though “Shindig” is focused on Mal and Inara (and there are a ton of great exchanges between them I could quote) it also has one of my favorite moments with Wash and Zoe:
Wash: You’re acting captain! Know what happens you fall asleep now?
Zoe: Jayne slits my throat and takes over.
Wash: That’s right.
Zoe: And we can’t stop it.
Wash: Well, I wash my hands of it. It’s a hopeless case. I’ll read a nice poem at the funeral, something with imagery.
Zoe: You could lock the door and keep the power-hungry maniac at bay.
Wash: I don’t know. I’m starting to like this poetry idea now. “Here lies my beloved Zoë, my autumn flower, somewhat less attractive now that she’s all corpsified and gross.”
This week’s #Firefly10th episode seems well timed in a way because the first part of the (very long awaited) fan film Bellflower has been released and well let”s just say that Kaylee doesn’t seem to be wrong about Capissen 38s. Not that anyone would ever doubt the genius mechanic. Anyway, you can check out the first “episode” here on YouTube.
