Why did the chicken cross the road? "Jubal: What did you say? Am I a road?". Fun thread over at fireflyfans.net.

This amused me no end and there's some lightbulb jokes in the thread as well.

"How many Rivers does it take to change a light bulb?
"I ate a bulb."

Why did the chicken cross the road?
Reavers: Mmmmm...chicken...

FOX: Can you make the chicken nicer and have it tell some jokes? Actually, we're going to show the chicken before we show the egg, then we're going to cancel the road.

WB: To get to the CW.

UPN: To get to the CW.

;-)
That's a great thread. I like this one. No messing, no BS, just pure Zoeness ;).

How many Zoes does it take to change a light bulb?
One.



Why did the chicken cross the road ?

River: Because it understands but it doesn't comprehend.
or
River: GIBLETS ! *faints*
Jayne: To avoid becoming a Wash-kabob. What ? Just sayin's all.
Mal: Because it's manly and impulsive.

Fox: Does it have to be a chicken ? Also, could you make it less roady ?

(LOL, billz)
LOL right back, Saje! BTW, that Zoe light bulb joke was the one I liked, too, & for the same reason -- it's just so Zoe! ;-)
A couple for Mr. Universe (how did these get missed???):

"You can't stop the chicken."

"You guys always send me the best chickens."
Ah, chickens...Wacky Fun!
Wash: Can I make a suggestion that doesn't involve chicken, or is this the wrong crowd for that ?
My addition:

JOSS WHEDON: you'll never know, because I plan to kill the chicken.
Giles: 'Why don't you wrest the information from that dread machine?'
FOX: Stop bothering us with these scripts. We already told you. We only work with turkeys.

Billz, Miranda : excellent!!


Mal: He's goin' to that special hell!

Chicken: No power in the 'verse can stop me!
Chicken: Well, here I am!
Xander: Respect the chicken, and tame the road.
Oz: Robot-oil was on sale on the other side.

Anya: Because there's a bunny on this side of the road.... Wait, there's a bunny on this side of the road? HELP!
Willow: It's a cock-a-doodle-do. I cock-a-doodle-do. You, too, you cock-a-doodle-do, too.

Buffy: "Chicken? There's a chicken?"
Chicken/Buffy, Chuffy
Kaylee: Chicken? You mean to say as...poultry?
Simon: [Grinning shyly] I mean to say.
Kaylee: [Grabbing a knife and fork] To hell with this. I'm gonna eat!
Joss: "In my world, chickens cross the road all the time".

Joss: "In my world, chickens cross the road all the time".

And not the chickens you'd expect. ;-)

Sex, sex, sex. Is that all we ever think about here? (Er, yes?) ;-)

Hi-larious! :-)
Angel: "(Screams in terror) AAAHHHHH!!"

Joss: "What happens when lightning strikes a chicken crossing the road?"
Anya: Because there's a bunny on this side of the road.... Wait, there's a bunny on this side of the road? HELP!


That's always my answer! (I'm a chicken, and my wife is a bunny. Voila!) Plus the Anya reaction just makes it even funnier.

Joss: Quiet on the set unless you're poultry (an actual quote, apparently).

BAWK! BAWK! BAWK!
Fox: are the chickens naked?


This sounds more like a Xander quote :-)
Reaver: Farmer follow chicken...mmmmm
Mal: Half of history is hiding the road from the chicken.
Chicken: Out. Crossing. The. Road.. . . Bitch.
Chekov's Law: If there's a chicken over the mantle in Act I, it must be fired by Act III.

(An actual quote, or close to it, from either Joss or Tim Minear in the commentary on The Train Job.)
SNT, I wish to test that chicken.
Angel to chicken: Can you fly?
Spike (in regards to chicken kerfluffle): Bugger this.
Illyria: "Crossing the road is pointless and annoys the chicken...yet it is compelled to walk on."
Tara: I'm cured, I want the chickens now!

Spike: I may be love's bitch, but I'm chicken enough to admit it. (Ok, that one's just weird)

Cordelia: I need to call every chicken I've ever met.

Kaylee:Grav boot ain't your trouble. I seen the trouble plain as day when I was down there on my back. Your chicken's bad.
Are you saying there's some connection between the chicken and Glory?
Meanwhile, Riley's been hanging out with prostitute vampire chickens. On the other side of the road.
Angel: "I'm not looking at your chicken!"
Xander: "I told you to eat before we left."

Chicken: "I may be dead, but I'm still pretty."

Oz's nametag: Banty.
Giles: Buffy it's your destiny to kill the chicken.
Chicken good. Foamy.
Buffy: Fire bad. Chicken pretty.
Harmony to Spike: Blondie Chicken!
Once More With Poultry

Every single day the same arrangement
I go out and cross the road
Still I always feel a deja vu thing
Why am I compelled to the other side?
I've been making shows of crossing roads
Just hoping noone knows that I'm just
Going through the motions
Watching every car
Poultry trying not to become tar.

Will I play frogger forever
Fate stuck to that toad's endeavour
I hope I won't lose a feather
I don't want to beeee

Going through the motions
Wishing on my bone
I can't even see
My drumsticks aren't fat free
And I just want to be
On the other siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiide.

Ok, its late, and I'm silly. I think this is my longest post ever.
Chicken: Out. Crossing. The. Road.. . . Bitch.


Heh. That's priceless.
Mort! That rocked babe!
Mort, that is brilliant! Shiny!
Mort, that is genius. Cracking post ;).

Why did the chicken cross the road ?

Badger: That only matters to the people on the other side.
Mal: Trap !
Faith: Because it's wrong !
Spike: It made a promise to a lady.
Why did the chicken cross the road? No idea, it was watching this Fruity Oaty Bar commercial and then it just went...
How many Washburnes does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Two.

How many Kaylees and Tams does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Three. But one just wants to watch.

How many Browncoats does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Depends on whether or not they're losing the higher ground but I'm SURE they will TAKE that hill and FORTIFY it with the bodies of--

How many Companions does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Wouldn't you like to know.

Why did the Operative cross the road? No one ever knows because much like the metaphorical road ...they don't exist.
