->Take my love, take my land\\
Take me where I cannot stand\\
I don't care, I'm still free\\
You can't take the sky from me\\
\\
Take me out to the black\\
Tell 'em I ain't comin' back\\
Burn the land and boil the sea\\
You can't take the sky from me\\
\\
There's no place I can't be\\
Since I found Serenity\\
And you can't take the sky from me

[[AC:'''"Serenity"''']]

-> ''Mal'': I don't believe there is a power in the 'verse that can stop [[GenkiGirl Kaylee]] from being cheerful. Sometimes you just wanna duct tape her mouth and dump her in the hold for a month.

->''Kaylee'': [[ChekhovsGun Compression coil busts, we're drifting...]]\\
''Mal'': [[TemptingFate Best not bust, then.]]

-> ''Zoe'': If they take the ship, [[{{Squick}} they'll rape us to death, eat our flesh and sew our skins into their clothing,]] [[CrossesTheLineTwice and if we're very very lucky]], they'll do it {{in that order}}.

->'''Dobson''': ''(holds a gun to River's head and uses her as a [[HumanShield shield]])'' "[[PutDownYourGunAndStepAway I'm not playing anymore. If anyone so much as moves-]]"\\
'''Mal''': ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome (walks in and casually]] [[KilledMidSentence shoots Dobson]] [[ImprobableAimingSkills in the eye)]]''

->''Mal'': [[GenreSavvy How come you didn't turn on me, Jayne?]]\\
''Jayne'': Money wasn't good enough.\\
''Mal'': What happens when it is?\\
''Jayne'': Well... [[ForeShadowing that'll be an interesting day.]]

[[AC:'''"The Train Job"''']]
->''Zoe'': Sir, I think you have a problem with your brain being missing.

->''Mal'': Darn.

[[AC:'''"Our Mrs. Reynolds"''']]
->''Mal'': I swear by my pretty floral bonnet I will end you.

->''Book'': If you take sexual advantage of that girl, you're going to burn in a very special level of hell. One reserved for child molesters, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking people who talk at the theater]].

[[AC:'''"Jaynestown"''']]

->''Simon'': "I reattached a girl's leg. Her ''whole leg''. She named her hamster after me. I got a hamster. He drops a box of money, ''he gets a town''..." ''(raising his mug in a toast)'' "To Jayne! The box-dropping, [[BuffySpeak man-ape-gone-wrong thing!]]"

->''Jayne'': "You all think somebody's just gonna drop money on ya? Money they could use? Well there ain't people like that!... There's just people like ''me!''"

[[AC:'''"Shindig"''']]

->''Badger'': 'Course you couldn't buy an invite with a diamond the size of a testicle, but I got my hands on a couple.\\
''[=Jayne/Mal=]'': [[UnEntendre (chuckling)]]\\
''Badger'': ...Of invites!

-> ''Atherton'': Half of these men wish you were draped on their arm.\\
''Inara'': Only half? I must be losing my undefinable allure.\\
''Atherton'': Not so undefinable - [[EstablishingCharacterMoment all of them wish they were in your bed.]]

->''Jayne'': What we need is a diversion... [[ShowSomeLeg I say Zoe gets nekkid.]]\\
''Wash'': No.\\
''Jayne'': I could get nekkid.\\
''Everyone'': [[{{Squick}} No!]]

->''Mal'': Sure, it's humiliating. Having to lie there while the better man refuses to spill your blood. Mercy is the mark of a great man. (''Stabs Atherton in the side.'') Guess I'm just a good man. (''Stabs him again.'') Well, I'm all right.

[[AC:'''"War Stories"''']]

->''Wash'': "I don't want you to spare me, Mal. If you think you know what's happening, then you tell me. You wouldn't spare Zoe if she were in this situation with you, would you? You would be planning, and plotting and... possibly scheming. So whatever Zoe would do in this instance is what I wanna do. Do you know why? No matter how ugly it gets, you two always come back with the stories. So... I'm Zoe. Now, what do I do?"\\
''Mal'': "Probably not talk quite so much."

->''Wash'': "I mean, I'm the one she swore to love, honor and obey."\\
''Mal'': "Listen, you... She swore to obey?"\\
''Wash'': "Well, no, but...But that's just my point! ''You'' she obeys! She obeys ''you!'' There's obeying going on ''right under my nose!'' "

->''Mal'': "That's not true! There's plenty of orders of mine that she didn't obey!"\\
''Wash'': "[[NameOne Name one]]!"\\
''Mal'': "[[WhamLine She married YOU!!]]"

->''Zoe'': Preacher, don't Literature/TheBible have some pretty specific things to say about killing?
->''Book'': [[ThouShaltNotKill Quite specific]]. It is, however, somewhat [[TechnicalPacifist fuzzier on the subject]] [[OnlyAFleshWound of kneecaps]].

->''Zoe'': [[ThisIsSomethingHesGotToDoHimself This is something the Captain has to do for himself]].\\
''Mal'': [[DefiedTrope No! No, it's not!]] \\
''Zoe'': Oh. [[MoreDakka (starts firing)]]

->''Mal'': I know it's a difficult mission... but you and I... have to get it on.\\
''Zoe'': Alright... I understand. Take me, sir. Take me hard.\\
''Jayne'': [[NoYay Now something about that's just downright unsettling.]]\\
''Wash'': (grabs Zoe) We'll be in our bunk!

->'''River'': [[OneManArmy No power in the 'Verse can stop me.]]
