Episode Quotes
Kaylee: (to Mal) Yes, sir, Captain Tightpants.

Wash: Don't fall asleep now. Sleepiness is weakness of character. Ask anyone. You're acting captain. Know what happens you fall asleep now?
Zoe: Jayne slits my throat and takes over.

Mal: See how I'm not punching him? I think I've grown.

Mal: (standing over Atherton) Mercy is the mark of a great man.
(Mal pokes him with his swordpoint)
Guess I'm just a good man.
(Mal pokes him again)
Well, I'm all right.

Inara: (to Mal) Atherton's an expert swordsman. You had trouble with the pillar. How is your death going to defend my honor?

Zoe: I thought you wanted some shore leave on this trip?
Wash: Out there it's all fancy parties. I like our party better. The dress code's easier and I know all the steps.

Jayne: What we need's a diversion. I say Zoe gets naked.
Wash: Nope.
Jayne: I could get naked.
Zoe, Wash, Simon and Kaylee No!

(The crew is learning about Mal's predicament)
Book: A duel?
Wash: With swords?!
Simon: The captain's a good fighter; I'm sure he knows how to handle a sword...
Zoe: I think he knows which end to hold.
