"Oh my god. What can it be?
We're all doomed! Who's flying this thing!?"
(deadpan) "Oh right, that would be me. Back to work." – Wash
Harken: "You fought with Captain Reynolds in the war?"
Zoe:"Fought with a lot of people in the war."
Harken: "And your husband?"
Zoe: "Fight with him sometimes, too."
Harken: "Seems odd you'd name your ship
after a battle you were on the wrong side of."
Mal: "May have been the losing side.
Still not convinced it was the wrong one."
Jayne: "You saved his gorram life,
he still takes the cargo. Hwoon dahn."
Mal: "He had to.... Couldn't let us profit.
Wouldn't be civilized."
Wash: "Did he just go crazy and fall asleep?"
Jayne: "I think that fellow we ran into did everyone on board,
killed them all, then decided to take a swim through space,
see how fast his blood would boil out of his ears."
Wash: "You're a very "up" person."
Simon:"Oh yes, he's a real beast. It's a wonder you're still alive."
Jayne: "Looked bigger when I couldn't see him."
Zoe: "Jayne, you'll scare the women."
Mal: "It's a real burden being right so often."
Mal: "If I didn't know better, I'd think we were dangerous."
Simon: "Yeah. I selflessly turned us both into wanted fugitives."
Inara: "Well, we're all running from something I suppose."
Book: "Shall I remind you of the story of the Good Samaritan?"
Mal: "I'd rather you didn't. But we'll check it out.
See if there are survivors. If not, then, well no one's going
to mind if we take a look around, see if there's not
something of value they might have left behind."
Jayne:" Yeah, no, uh, someone could be hurt."
Jayne: " It's impressive what "nothing" can do to a man.
Like that fella we bumped into.
He's likely stuck up under our belly about now.
That's what space trash does, you know.
Kind of latches onto the first big something that stops long enough.
Hey now, that'd be a bit like you and your sister
now, wouldn't it?"
Simon: "You're hilarious. Sadist."
Mal: "Shh, easy now. No one's going to hurt you--
I mean, more than we already did."
Jayne: "Yeah, real hero, killing all them people."
Kaylee: "What!? We don't believe that. We don't, do we?"
Mal: "Doesn't matter that we took him off that boat, Shepherd,
it's the place he's going to live from now on."
Mal:"You tell me right now, little Kaylee, you really think you can do this?"
Kaylee: "Sure. Yeah. I think so. 'Sides, if I mess up,
not like you'll be able to yell at me."
Jayne: "What's going on?"
Mal:"Well, I'd have to say, right at this particular moment, not a thing. Right?"
Kaylee: "Not a gorram thing."
Jayne: "Looked like a thing to me."
Harken: "Is there any particular reason you don't wish to discuss your marriage?"
Zoe: "Don't see that it's any of your business, is all. We're very private people."
Wash: "The legs. Oh yeah, definitely have to say it was her legs.
You can put that down. Her legs, and where her legs meet her
back. Actually, that whole area. That, and above it."
Mal: "He looked right into the face of it. Was made to stare . . .
The darkness. Kind of darkness you can't
even imagine. Blacker than the space it moves through."
