Heart of Gold

Mal: “You know, it ain’t altogether wise, sneaking up on a man when he’s handling his weapon.”
Inara: “I’m sure I’ve heard that said. But perhaps the dining area isn’t the place for this sort of thing?”
Mal: “What do you mean? Only place with a table big enough.”
Inara: “Of course. In that case…” (rearranges guns) “Every well-bred petty crook knows — the small concealable weapons always go to the far left of the place setting.”
Mal: “This distress call wouldn’t be taking place in someone’s pants, would it?”
Inara: “It sounds like the sort of thing this crew can handle. I can’t guarantee they’ll handle it particularly well, but-“
Nandi: “If they got guns, and brains at all…”
Inara: “They have guns.”
Zoe: “No one’s gonna force you to go, Jayne. As has been stated — this job’s strictly speculative.”
Jayne: “Good. ‘Cause I don’t know these folks, don’t much care to.”
Mal: “They’re whores.”
Jayne: “I’m in.”
Mal: “Any friend of Inara’s is a strictly business-like relationship of mine.”
Jayne: (calls out from across the room) “Can I start gettin’ sexed already?”
Mal: “Well, that’s one kind of horrific.”
Kaylee: “Everybody’s got somebody…” (wistfully) “Wash, tell me I’m pretty…”
Wash: “Were I unwed, I would take you in a manly fashion.”
Kaylee: ” ‘Cause I’m pretty?”
Wash: ” ‘Cause you’re pretty.”
Kaylee: “Thank you. That was very restorative.”
Mal: “Inara, think you could stoop to being on my arm?”
Inara: “Will you wash it first?”
Mal: “Well, lady I must say…” (admiring smile) “…you’re my kinda stupid.”
Kaylee: “Captain seem a little funny to you at breakfast this morning?”
Wash: “Come on, Kaylee. We all know I’m the funny one.”

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.
