Wash: I don't know, but if she doesn't give more power to offset the burn through this landing is going to get very interesting.
Mal: Define interesting.
Wash: "Oh God, Oh God we're all going to die"?
Mal: [Talking into the intercom.] This the captain speaking. We might experience some turbulence, then explode.
Jayne: We're going to explode? I don't wanna explode.
Mal: You know what the first thing of flying is, Little Albatross? Well of course you do. You can read my mind.
River: I want to hear you say it.
Mal: 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 worlds. Love keeps her in the air when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
River: The storm's getting worse.
Mal: We'll come out of it soon enough.
Wash: I am a leaf on the wind, watch how I soar.
Jayne Cobb: Shiny. Let's be bad guys.
Shepherd Book: I don't care what you believe in, just believe in it.
Jayne: She is starting to damage my calm.
Mr. Universe: Guy killed me with a sword, Mal. How weird is that?
