  • Studio Executives: Nathan, can we talk to you for a second?
  • Nathan Fillion: Yes, what is it?
  • Studio: We need to put and end to the constant jokes about Firefly. We get it! You loved working on that show, and you're upset it got cancelled. But seriously, you've made a blatant reference to it in every single thing you're in. Castle, Percy Jackson, that thing with Neil Patrick Harris and the puppets, where does it end?
  • Nathan: Well, alright. I suppose you deserve a little peace of mind. A little...Serenity.
  • Studio: JESUS CHRIST ON A PANCAKE, STOP IT!
  • Nathan: Why, it's pretty cunning, don'tcha think?
  • Studio: NO! STOP!
  • Nathan: I aim to misbehave.
  • Studio: FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, IF WE BRING IT BACK ON THE AIR, WILL YOU SHUT UP!
  • Nathan: This wouldn't be an issue if it weren't for your sudden but inevitable betrayal.
  • Studio: FUCKING CHRIST.
  • Nathan: YOU CAN'T TAKE THE SKY FROM ME!

I love playing that chemistry they have, this love-hate relationship. Mal feels something for Inara, but he cannot bring himself [to act on it]. I mean, how could you possibly be in love with a Companion? Even if she said, ‘Yeah, I do love you,’ what would Mal do about it? What could he say – 'Don’t go to work today’? So he’s torn, and he is angry at himself for having those feelings for Inara. - Nathan Fillion

Let me tell you about Gina Torres. First off she is a beautiful woman. Number two, what a fantastic person. Salt of the earth. And she can cook. Everything you want her to be on TV - that is what she is like but more so. I adore her. I’m always amazed at the character she plays because the character she plays is the consumate soldier, she is so tough but manages to clinch the ‘don’t mess around with me’ vibe without acting the least bit mannish. I love that she is strong and vibrant and beautiful and feminine. - Nathan Fillion

When Firefly got cancelled, I was depressed, I was terribly sad. I wanted another shot, I wanted one more crack at it. I wanted it back. I got my opportunity. I got exactly what I wanted. When we did Serenity, I wanted it to be a good movie. I wanted another shot at Malcolm Reynolds and I wanted it be a good movie and I think that that was mission accomplished.
