*** Which is why I am a proud owner of a [[ShootTheDog Mal Shot First]] [[http://www.cafepress.com/+mal_shot_first,55999565 t-shirt]].
*** Oh, he had some warning. He hears a shot go off inside his ship (Dobson fired a round just before the whole standoff started), walks in, sees Dobson with a hostage... 2 + 2 = '''''BANG.''''' Pure and simple.

* Wash and Kaylee outsmarting some of Burgess's men in "Heart of Gold", leaving them trapped inside Serenity. Admittedly so were Wash and Kaylee at that point, but still.


Added DiffLines:

** Doubley impressive for an un-armed cargo/transport vessel. No weapons, still badass.
