Quote of the Day


Badger: Who’s that then? Here, look at me. What’s your story, love?

Simon: She’s … just a… just a passenger.

Badger: Yeah? Why ain’t she talking? She got a secret?

River: (with Badger’s accent) Sure, I got a secret. More than one. Don’t seem likely I’d tell ’em to you now, do it? Anyone off Dyton Colony knows better than to talk to strangers. You’re talking loud enough for the both of us though, ain’tcha? I’ve known a dozen like you. Skipped off home early, running graft jobs here and there. Spent some time in the lock down, but less than you claim. And you’re what? Petty thief with delusions of standing? Sad, little king of a sad, little hill.

Badger: Nice to see someone from the old homestead.

River: Not really. (to Simon) Call me if anyone interesting shows up. (leaves)

Badger: I like her.

Jayne: That there — exactly the kind of diversion we could have used.

Quote of the Day

Harrow: Whom do you represent?

Mal: “Represent” isn’t exactly the…

Harrow: Don’t waste my time.

Mal: Fellow called Badger.

Harrow: I know him. And I think he’s a psychotic low-life.

Mal: And I think calling him that is an insult to the psychotic low-life community.

Quote of the Day


Badger: He won’t deal with me direct. He’s taken an irrational dislike.

Jayne: What happened? He see your face?

Badger: He’s a quality gent. Nose in the air like he never wun gwo pee [“smelled a fart”]. Don’t find me respectable. But you, now I figure you got a chance.

Mal: You backed out of a deal last time. Left us hanging.

Jayne: Hurt our feelings.

Mal: You recall why that took place?

Badger: Had a problem with your attitude is why. Felt you was… what’s the word?

Jayne: Pretentious?

(Mal gives Jayne a confused/surprised look)

Badger: Exactly! You think you’re better than other people.

Mal: Just the ones I’m better than.
