Now River stay behind the others if there's fighting you drop to the floor or run away. It's okay to leave them to die.

Capt. Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds
Set course for Beaumonde, first thing, I want these bod -- (Simon suddenly punches him in the face .)
Capt. Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds

Dr. Simon Tam
You son of a whore!
Capt. Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds
I am a hairs breath from riddling you with holes Doctor!
Dr. Simon Tam
'One simple job! She'll be fine!'
Capt. Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds
She 'is' fine apart from being still crazy she's a picture of health!
Dr. Simon Tam
Never again do yo understand me?
Capt. Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds
Seems to me we had a talk about you giving orders on my boat.

Capt. Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds
You have no idea how true that is. I know the secret now. The truth that burned up River Tam's brain and set you after her. And the rest of the 'verse is gonna know it too. 'Cause they need to.
The Operative
You really believe that?
Capt. Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds
I do.
The Operative
You willing to die for that belief?
Capt. Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds
I am... .course that ain't excactly plan A!
Capt. Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds
This report is maybe twelve years old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried til River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear, 'cause there's a universe of folk that are gonna know it too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. 'Cause as sure as I know anything I know this: They will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground, swept clean. A year from now, ten, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people... better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave.
Dr. Simon Tam
May I see her?
Capt. Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds
I believe you go some storytelling to do what in hell happened back there?
Wash
Start with the part where Jayne gets knocked out by a ninety pound girl. 'Cause I don't think that's ever getting old

Zoe
Do we know if anyone was killed?
Capt. Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds
It's likely. I know she meant to Ad kill me 'fore the Doc put her out which how exactly does that work anyhow?
Dr. Simon Tam
It's a safeword. The people who helped me break River out had intel that River and the other subjects were being embedded with behavioral conditioning. They taught me a safeword, in case... something happened.
Kaylee Frye
I'm not sure I get it
Kaylee Frye
I'm not sure I get it.

You know what the first rule of flying is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take a boat in the air you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps her in the air when she oughta' fall down, tells you she's hurtin' 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
