The Operative: I'm not threatening you. I'm unarmed—
Mal: Good. (shoots him, turns to leave, and gets jumped)
The Operative: ...I am, of course, wearing full body armor. I am not a moron.
Rygel: (To Scorpius' body) Sorry I had to shoot you but... you know how it goes.
Scorpius: (Very quietly) How did you know I was wearing body armor?

Scorpius: What if you were wrong?
Rygel: Not so bad for me either way.
Archer: Shut up! That vest is bulletproof!
Cheryl: Oh. *gets shot in the arm* Ow!
Archer: But it is, y'know, a vest.
