Jayne: (remarking on the unappetizing meal Simon’s made for himself) “Smells like crotch.”
Wash: “You know, it’s all very sweet, stealing from the rich, selling to the poor…”
Kaylee: “Figures.  First time on the Core and what do I get to do?  Dig through trash.”
Mal: “Patients were cynical and not responding and we couldn’t bring ’em back-“
Simon: “They were cyanotic and not responsive.”
Simon: (to Jayne) “What about cortical electrodes?”
Jayne: “Oh…” (obviously doesn’t know the answer) “We forgot ’em.”
Mal: “Pupils were fixed and dilapidated-“
Simon: “Dialated-“
Mal: “Dialated! Dialated! Ching-wao tsao duh liou mahng!” [Ching-wah tsao duh liou mahng = Frog-humping sonofabitch]
Mal: “Now all we need is a coupla patients.”
Simon: “Corpses, actually.  For this plan to work, River and I will have to be dead.”
Jayne: (smiling) “I’m starting to like this plan.”
Mal: “Two lefts, two rights, and we’re there.  You see anyone, smile.”
Zoe: “I don’t think anyone smiles in hospitals.”
Mal: “Course they do, it’s the Core.  Everyone’s rich and happy here, why wouldn’t they smile?”
Pompous Doctor: “Walk with me a minute.”
Mal: “Where’re we going?” (Zoe sneaks away, around and behind the doctor)
Pompous Doctor: “You see this badge? It says ‘doctor’. I say walk, you walk.”
Mal: “Yeah but, where’re we going?”
Pompous Doctor: “You must be new.” (Zoe walks up behind him) “Don’t get comfortable, your type never lasts long around here. When your supervisor hears about the rude and disrespect–ARGH!!!” (falls to the ground, unconscious, revealing Zoe standing behind him with defib paddles)
Zoe:  (shrugs) “Clear.”
River: (cryptically to Jayne) “Your toes are in the sand.”
Jayne: “And your head’s up your-“
Simon: “Hey! Back off!”
Zoe: “Can we find someplace with a beach?”
Wash: (grinning and skipping to her) “Maybe a naked beach?” (they kiss)
Mal: “Cut it out. Job’s not done ’til we’re back on Serenity.”
Zoe: “Sorry, sir, didn’t mean to enjoy the moment.”
River: (cryptically to Jayne) “They took Christmas away.”
Jayne: (confused) “What the hell now?”
River: “Came downstairs for the shiny presents…they took the tree, and the stockings…nothing left but coal.”
Jayne: (to Simon) “Would you shut her up?”
River: (to Jayne) “Don’t look in the closet, either — it’s greedy.” (smiles) “It’s not in the spirit of the holiday.”
Jayne: “You shut the hell up right now or so help me, I’ll shut you up.”
Kaylee: “Hey there, Inara! How was your checkup?”
Inara: “Same as last year. What’s going on?”
Kaylee: (cheerfully) “Oh well let’s see…we killed Simon and River, stole a bunch of medicine, and the Cap’n and Zoe are springin’ the others got snatched by the feds.”
Mal: “Hey! How was your thing?”
Inara: “As advertised — lots of needles and cold exam tables. I heard you had some excitement.”
Mal: “Oh, nothin’ much — lotsa runnin’ round, little gunplay…couple needles.”
Simon: “He was amazing! (to Jayne) “We wouldn’t be standing here if it weren’t for you.”
Jayne: “Well, uh…you’re part of my crew.”
Mal: (sarcastic) “I think I might cry.”

About TJ

In 2015 my family moved from a small village in mid-Michigan to five beautifully forested acres in Northern Michigan. We love the lakes and rivers, the forests, and the billions of stars we can see in the night sky, as well as the many cultural and historical activities in our area. We also love that the deer and wild turkeys come right up to our house. This is where our hearts are! I have multiple cats (five the last time I counted), and a sweet introverted dog who rarely barks and who deeply loves the six adorable ducks and nine chickens that have become part of our family. I enjoy reading, studying, writing, and learning new things. I also enjoy walking my dog, cuddling my cats, and gardening. I love nature. The world fascinates me.
