-->'''Mal:''' I tell you, Zoe, we get a mechanic, get her up and running again, hire a good pilot, maybe a cook - Live like real people. A small crew - They must feel the need to be free. Take jobs as they come. They never have to be under the heel of nobody ever again. No matter how long the arm of the Alliance might get... we'll just get ourselves a little further.\\

** Mal repeatedly acts the part of an older brother to Kaylee, particularly apparent in "Shindig". In the movie, he invokes BrainBleach when Kaylee mentions having to rely on batteries for a year, in the movie. Though, to be fair, almost everyone treats Kaylee like a little sister, but it's usually more Mal and, to an extent, Inara.

Added DiffLines:

* ImColdSoCold: Subverted, where Kaylee says something like this after being shot, but she recovers without complication. She says it not because of impending death, but because she's going in to shock from the traumatic injury.

The show was created by Creator/JossWhedon and Creator/TimMinear (MutantEnemy Productions), and [[SchizoTech combined]] science fictional concepts (interplanetary travel, spaceships, {{terraform}}ing) with a Western setting (poor agricultural colonies where people ride horses, cattle ranching, cowboy slang). The ''Firefly'' universe contains [[AbsentAliens no non-human sentient beings]], and in fact no non-Earth-based life at all.

* Creator/JewelStaite as [[TheEngineer Kaywinnit Lee "Kaylee" Frye]], [[WrenchWench the mechanic]]. [[SunnySunflowerDisposition Her default mode is very happy]]. Famous enough to be referenced in ''WorldOfWarcraft''. According to Creator/JossWhedon, when Kaylee smiles, everything suddenly becomes shiny.

* DangerDeadpan: Wash is a completely different character when flying the ship: normally he is loud and panicky, but at the helm, he is completely calm and collected, no matter what imminent doom might be following him. Well, [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness it started out this way]], he got a bit more excitable while flying later on in the series, particularly in "The Message". On the DVD commentary Joss states it was due to the influence of playing an XBox another cast member gave him.

Added DiffLines:

* SpaceIsolationHorror: Played straight in the episode ''Out of Gas''. The titular gas is oxygen, and running low (with a ship that is dead in the water) means sitting around waiting for a slow and painful death or, in a degree of scary that is hard to argue whether is lesser or higher, risking whoever finds you decides murdering you is more profitable (or more ''fun'') than saving your life.

''Firefly'' is a ScienceFiction SpaceWestern that ran for four months on the Creator/{{Fox}} Network in 2002. It was canceled after 14 episodes were produced; only 11 were aired, thanks in part to a severe case of ExecutiveMeddling. Its quick cancellation helped give rise to TheFireflyEffect. A DVD box set was released in December 2003 and has sold briskly ever since. A feature-film continuation, ''Film/{{Serenity}}'', was released in October 2005 to critical acclaim.

''Firefly'''s life story is an interesting one: it went from (canceled) television show, to runaway cult hit DVD series, to comic-book {{sequel}}, to major motion picture, to a [[http://www.amazon.com/Firefly-Flying-Celebration-Whedons-Acclaimed/dp/1848565062/ref=sr_1_1/189-6509445-2330608?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1277635468&sr=8-1 book]] having show-related pics and a few new stories to a [[DevelopmentHell when-it's-ready]] {{MMORPG}}, titled ''[[http://keepflying.com/ Firefly Online]]''.

There are also constant rumors about a second television series (Whedon and many of the principals have constantly said they would be willing to pick up the show, with Fillion going so far as to say he'd be willing to buy the rights from Fox), and the cult status the series has attained after its premature cancellation may have saved [[{{Series/Dollhouse}} a later Whedon work]] [[https://web.archive.org/web/20090815094939/http://scifiwire.com/2009/05/fox-execs-explain-why-the.php from a similar fate]], even if ''{{Series/Dollhouse}}'' only lasted until December of 2009.

* AnachronicOrder: The episode "Out of Gas," which starts InMediasRes and flashes back to both HowWeGotHere and EveryoneMeetsEveryone. This was inadvertently done to the series as a whole, as the episodes were aired out of order during their original run on {{Fox}}.
