Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!

Just saw this at [livejournal.com profile] dorrie6's journal.

Firefly meme
When you see this on your flist, quote Firefly.


Not sure this actually made it into the show. It's from the shooting script for "Serenity" (the episode, not the movie).


ZOE
What does it say under 'bloodbath'?

Simon turns off the book, seeing Zoe in his doorway.

SIMON
I'm was just trying to --

ZOE
We're not in there. The book, I
mean. We're not generals or
diplomats, we didn't turn the tide of
glorious history or whatever that
thing is supposed to spew.

SIMON
You know what they say: History is
programmed by the winners.

ZOE
Nearly half a million people lay dead
on that field at day's end, about a
third of them 'winners'. Can you
imagine the smell? Can you imagine
piling up the bodies of soldiers --
of friends -- to build a wall 'cause
you got no cover? Blood just kept
pouring out of them, you'd slip in it
half the time, find out bloodbath is
not just a figure of speech.

SIMON
Mal was there with you.

She enters, sits across from him.

ZOE
He was my sergeant. In command of
thirty-odd grunts -- five days in,
there were so many officers dead he
commanded two thousand. Kept us
together, kept us fighting, kept us
sane.
