Quote of the Day

Simon: Captain… why did you come back for us?

Mal: You’re on my crew.

Simon: Yeah, but you don’t even like me. Why’d you come back?

Mal: You’re on my crew. Why we still talking about this? (walks off) Chow’s in ten. No need to dress.

Quote of the Day

Mal: Well, look at this! Appears we got here just in the nick of time. What does that make us?

Zoe: Big damn heroes, sir.

Mal: Ain’t we just. Sorry to interrupt, folks. Y’all got something that belongs to us and we’d like it back.

Patron: This is a holy cleansing. You cannot think to thwart God’s will.

Mal: Y’all see the man hanging out of the spaceship with the really big gun? Now I’m not saying you weren’t easy to find. It was kinda out of our way, and he didn’t want to come in the first place. Man’s lookin’ to kill some folk. So really it’s his will y’all should worry about thwarting. (to Simon) Gotta say, doctor, your talent for alienatin’ folk is near miraculous.

Simon: Yes, I’m very proud.

Mal: Cut her down.

Patron: That girl is a witch.

Mal: Yeah, but she’s our witch. So cut her the hell down.

Quote of the Day

Simon: Hodgeberries… Do you remember when we found those giant hodgeberry bushes on the Cambersons’ estate? And we thought they’d grown wild, but…Long while ago.

River: I took you away from there.

Simon: No.

River: I know I did. You don’t think I do, but… I get confused. I remember everything. I remember too much, and… some of it’s made up, and… some of it can’t be quantified, and… there’s secrets.

Simon: It’s okay.

River: But I understand. You gave up everything you had to find me. And you found me broken. It’s hard for you. You gave up everything you had…

Simon: Mei mei… Everything I have is right here.

River: You need to eat. Keep up your strength. We won’t be here long. Daddy will come and take us home. And I’ll get better… I’ll get better.

(Simon eats another berry)

Simon: These are better than the Cambersons’ berries.

River: They are. Except they’re poison.

(Simon spits out the berries)

River: (laughing) He believed her. Made a face.

Simon: You are such a brat!

Quote of the Day

Zoe: You sanguine about the kind of reception we’re up to receive on an Alliance ship, Cap?

Mal: Absolutely…. What’s sanguine mean?

Zoe: Sanguine. Hopeful. Plus, point of interest, it also means bloody.

Mal: Well, that pretty much covers all the options, don’t it?

Quote of the Day

Kaylee: We’re headed for help… right?

Zoe: Captain’ll come up with a plan.

Kaylee: That’s good. Right?

Zoe: Possibly you’re not recalling some of his previous plans.

Quote of the Day

(Jayne is going through Simon’s things, and stops to “read” from his diary.)

Jayne: “Dear Diary, Today I was pompous and my sister was crazy.” (flips page) “Today, we were kidnapped by hill folk never to be seen again. It was the best day ever.”

Quote of the Day

Mal: Hey. Stay with me, Shepherd.

Book: That’s… that’s quite a lot of blood, isn’t it?

Mal: Just means you ain’t dead.

Book: Afraid I might be needing a preacher.

Mal: That’s good. You lie there and be ironical.

Quote of the Day

Mal: This is the last time. Last time with cows. Hear there was an idea regarding beagles? They have smallish droppings?

Zoe: I believe so, sir. Also, your disreputable men are here.

Mal: Better go take their money.

Quote of the Day


Kaylee: Morning, you two.

Inara: Don’t usually see you two out and about planet-side.

Simon: Yeah, we’re… we’re trying something different today. River, be careful with that… that’s, um… What is that?

Kaylee: It’s a post-holer. You dig holes. For posts.

Simon: It’s, uh, it’s dirty. And sharp. Let’s come over here.

Quote of the Day


Inara: Does it seem every supply store on every border planet has the same five rag dolls and the same wood carvings of… what is this? A duck?

Kaylee: That’s a swan… I like it.

Inara: You do?

Kaylee: Looks like it was made with, you know, longing. Made by a person really longed to see a swan.

Inara: Perhaps because they’d only heard of them by rough description.
