Puncher: River Tam
Punchee: a Reaver
Memorable lines: “My turn.”
Why it’s awesome: We’ve been waiting literally the whole movie for this moment - the turnaround, the payoff to all the setup, the moment when little wounded River changes from the victim of government conspiracy to the badass who beats up everything. It comes when our heroes are their very lowest point, some are dead (well, it does say Joss Whedon at the bottom of the page) and the rest are pretty much about to be, and when the audience is just starting to seriously consider whether he means to make it a Total Party Kill, when up pops River. She’s been both broken bird and the central macguffin of the story line since her introduction, and at this moment she at last comes into her own, unleashing the epic fight scene of the film, and the first bit of success our heroes have seen in a long long time. And, naturally, it all begins with a face punch.

Mal: “Wait, go back to the part where you’re my wife? Zoe, how come I have a wife?”
Jayne: “You got a wife? All I got was that dumb-ass stick that sounds like it’s rainin’. How come you got a wife!?”
How have I not realized this until just now?
Soooo I ate at this restaurant the other night…
We’re still flying.
That’s not much.
