More Movie Taglines:
- Can't stop the signal.
- Space Pirates on the run!
- They're armed. She's dangerous.
- This is one 'River' you do not want to cross.
- The future is worth fighting for.
- They aim to misbehave.
- ZoŽ: [after breaking into a practically empty bank safe] ZoŽ: At last, we can retire and give up this life of crime.
Hoban 'Wash' Washburn: This landing is gonna get pretty interesting. Capt. Malcolm Reynolds: Define "interesting". Hoban 'Wash' Washburn: [deadpan] Oh God, oh God, we're all going to die?
Dr. Caron: These are just a few of the images we've recorded. And you can see, it wasn't what we thought. There's been no war here and no terraforming event. The environment is stable. It's the Pax. The G-23 Paxilon Hydrochlorate that we added to the air processors. It was supposed to calm the population, weed out aggression. Well, it works. The people here stopped fighting. And then they stopped everything else. They stopped going to work, they stopped breeding, talking, eating. There's 30 million people here, and they all just let themselves die.
Capt. Malcolm Reynolds: What are you doing? Inara Serra: I'm praying for you Mal.
Mr. Universe: From here to the eyes and the ears of the 'Verse, that's my motto, or it might be if I start having a motto.
- When the Operative reviews Mal's file, it shows his birth date as 9/20/2468. 9/20/2002 is the day "Firefly" (2002) premiered. Coincidentally, 9/20/1968 is "Firefly" writer/producer Ben Edlund's date of birth.
Although only a portion of the animated "Fruity Oaty Bar" commercial is visible in the movie, it was produced in its entirety and is visible as an "Easter Egg" on the DVD. Joss Whedon wanted the commercial to be as odd as possible and admits on the DVD that it is heavily inspired by the "Mr. Sparkle" advertisement from "The Simpsons: In Marge We Trust (#8.22)" (1997) The uncredited actor shown in the commercial and in the Easter Egg segment is Robert Michael Lee.
According to Adam Baldwin, the mini-gun his character Jayne uses at the end of the film is nicknamed "Lux", after the message board handle (LuxLucre) of devoted fan Kerry Pearson. Pearson, who died of complications from diabetes, was best known for creating fan art that featured the characters from "Firefly" (2002) in a "South Park" (1997) cartoon style.
There is an inside joke printed on some of the crates in the cargo bay. Some of the crates have the message "Reusable Container: Do Not Destroy" printed on them (they are visible behind River after the Reaver has been shot). The original set for the ship, from the show "Firefly" (2002) was destroyed (even though creator Joss Whedon swore he'd make use of it again), and therefore could not be reused for the movie (the set had to be rebuilt from scratch).
Fanty and Mingo are named for the pair of mafia thugs from Joseph H. Lewis's The Big Combo (1955).
