Mal: My thanks Wash, nice save as always.
Wash: A pleasure.
Mal: And how are our passengers?
Kaylee: They’re fine. So, what happened? Was there a terrible brawl?
Zoe: Oddly enough, there was.
Wash: Are you gettin’ my wife into trouble?
Mal: Wha? I didn’t start it! Just wanted a quiet drink.
Zoe: Funny, sir, how you always seem to find yourself in an Alliance-friendly bar come U-day, looking for a “quiet drink.”
Mal: See, this is another sign of your tragic space dementia, all paranoid and crotchety. Breaks the heart.
