Mal: What the hell?
(Inara punches him.)
Inara: Don’t you dare speak to me. Sheriff, I want this man bound by law at once. That’s assuming he hasn’t been already?
Sheriff: No one’s been bound, not yet.
Inara: Thank God you stopped them. (to Mal) Did you honestly think you could access my accounts and I wouldn’t find you? And Zoe, what would your husband say if he knew you were here?
Zoe: I… I was weak.
Sheriff: So I take it they ain’t newlyweds?
Inara: Hardly. Malcolm’s my indentured man, with three years left on his debt. I imagine we’ll have to add another six months after this little adventure.
Sheriff: (re: onlookers) You’ll have to pardon them. Don’t think a one of ’em’s ever seen a registered Companion before.
Inara: I apologize for my manner.
Sheriff: Oh, not a bit.
Inara: Should I contact my ship? Do you need to hold them very much longer?
Sheriff: Looks to me like we’re about done here. I, uh. We had some unrelated trouble. His story had kind of an odor to it.
Inara: Yes, it’s not the only thing about him that does. Thank you, very much Sheriff. (to Mal and Zoe) Come along.
