i want to re-watch firefly, but i don’t feel like being sad when it’s done. (also, it makes me miss my pop, who loved that show. i didn’t get to watch it with him when he was alive because i didn’t have tv, which is just another regret to add to the pile.)
From the transcript of Stoney Knows How:
STONEY O/C: I’ll try to read that little sign, I kind of like it myself. Says, “I, Leonard Stoney St. Clair, am in the business of rendering a service to this community, for the small group of people who choose to have their bodies decorated in some way or another. I choose to pursue my profession with intelligence and skill, wishing not to offend anyone, but instead with my love of mankind, do what good I can before a I die. Leonard L. St. Clair, tattooist of the old school since 1928.”
(Shot changes back to show Stoney)
STONEY: Ha, a lot of people look at that and wonder, “What does that mean, the old school?” “What do you, are you proud to be what you are?” Ah, I’m just proud that I, ah, i was able to, in the past, carry on the oldest art in the world. And try to keep it decent, because I’m not going to be here the whole time, and I hope that somebody, I got it from a good man, so maybe some day, somebody will look at them little daisies growing over me and say, “Well, he, ah, he didn’t, he didn’t butcher it up anyway. He carried it on, it’s handed down anyway, you know. you don’t find this on every street corner. No.
INTERVIEWER O/C: That’s it?
