OH GOD OH GOD THEY MEAN REAL THINGS.
Dude, you didn’t know that? Pretty much all of the Chinese in Firefly was a classic example of Getting Shit Past the Censors.
Just in case you needed to know useful Chinese phrases like “Holy mother of god and all her wacky nephews.”
One of my few fond memories with my ex-wife (fluent in Mandarin and Cantonese) was watching Firefly and watching her bust a gut laughing every time they swore. XD
