30 days of TV: Day 24(ish)

Day 24 - Best quote

Look, you are speaking of half my vocabulary, here. I'm a character-focused language geek with such a deep love for banter that it was many many years before I realized just how flawed Joss Whedon's stuff was. I could put several miles of text in this post, starting with every line from every episode of The Middleman and Better Off Ted and ending with "A cricket bat!" "Twelve years!"

But I'm gonna go ahead and answer this one, and it's an answer that's gonna come out of left field entirely.

"Do you know what the chain of command is? It's the chain I go get and beat you with until you understand who's in ruttin' command here!" -Jayne Cobb, Firefly

It's a lame joke. It's from a terrible show. It's barely saved by the fact that it came out of Adam Baldwin's mouth. And yet for some reason it is so permanently ingrained in my subconscious that I am incapable of hearing the phrase 'chain of command' without this quote popping into my head and drowning out anything else the other person might have said. And for that I figure it at least deserves some recognition.
