Inara: Thank you for the wine. It’s… very fresh.
Mal: To Kaylee and her inter-engine fermentation system.
Inara: Are you in pain?
Mal: Absolutely. I got stabbed, you know, right here.
Inara: I saw.
Mal:Don’t care much for fancy parties. Too rough.
Inara: It wasn’t entirely a disaster.
Mal: I got stabbed! Right here!
Inara: You also lined up exciting new crime.
Mal: It’s good to have cargo. Makes us a target for every other scavenger out there, though, but sometimes that’s fun too.
Inara: I am grateful, you know, for the ill-conceived and high-handed attempt to defend my honor, although I didn’t want you to.
Mal: Gracious as that is, looking back, I probably should have stayed out of your world.
Inara: My world? If it is that. I wasn’t going to stay, you know.
Mal: Yeah? Why is that?
Inara: Oh, someone needs to keep Kaylee out of trouble. And all my things are here. Besides, why would I want to leave Serenity?
Mal: Can’t think of a reason.
