: [has ordered the crew to be taken into custody
] I want every inch of this junker tossed. Kaylee
] "Junker"? Mal
: Settle down, Kaylee. Kaylee
: But Captain, did you hear what that purple-belly called Serenity? Mal
: Shut up!
[the crew is being interrogated individually
] Commander Harken
: You fought with Captain Reynolds in the war? Zoë
: [terse; slightly irritated tone
] Fought with a lot of people in the war. Commander Harken
: And your husband. Zoë
: Fight with him sometimes, too. Commander Harken
: Is there any particular reason you don't wish to discuss your marriage? Zoë
: Don't see that it's any of your business, is all. We're very private people.
[in Wash's interrogation
: [enthusiastic; animated
] The legs!
: Oh, yeah! I definitely have to say it was her legs. You can put that down! Her legs, and right where her legs meet her back. That - actually that whole area. That and - and above it.
[in Kaylee's interrogation
: [angry; slightly defensive
] Six gerslters crammed right under every cooling drive so that you strain your primary artery function and you end up having to recycle secondary exaust through a bypass system...just so's you don't end up pumping it through the main atmofeed and asphyxiating the entire crew. Now *that's* junk!
[back to Wash
: [very enthusiastically
] Have you seen what she wears? Forget about it. Have you ever been with a warrior woman?
: Looks to me like an illegal salvage operation. Mal
: It does? That's discouraging.
: I'm gonna...make a leap here and figure this is your first tour out here on the border. Commander Harken
: [audibly drops the file he was sifting through on the table; sniffs
] It's a very loyal crew you have there. Commander Harken
: [Mal smiles briefly with pride
] But then, I can tell by your record you have a-a tendency to inspire that quality in people...Sergeant. Captain Reynolds
: It's not Sergeant. Not anymore. War's over. Commander Harken
: For some the war'll never be over.
: I notice your ship's called "Serenity". You were stationed on Hera at the end of the war. Battle of Serenity Valley took place there, if I recall. Captain Reynolds
: [slightly sarcastic
] You know, I believe you might be right. Commander Harken
: Independents suffered a pretty crushing defeat there. Some say that after Serenity, the Browncoats were through. That the war ended in that valley. Captain Reynolds
: Hmm. Commander Harken
: Seems odd you'd name your ship after a battle you were on the wrong side of. Captain Reynolds
: May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.
: So we attacked that ship, then brought the only living survivor to our infirmiry. Is that what we did? Commander Harken
: I'd ask him.....only I'm not sure he'll be able to speak with his tounge split down the middle. Captain Reynolds
: [Mal's eyes widen slightly with shock; mutters to himself in Chinese
] Commander Harken
: I haven't seen that kind of torture since...well since the war. Captain Reynolds
: [sighs, almost a whisper
] I should have known. Commander Harken
: You and you crew are bound by law. Formal charges will be transmitted to the central authority. Captain Reynolds
: Commander, I'm not what you need to be concerned about right now. Things go the way they are, there's gonna be blood.
: [Alliance message to Serenity
] Firefly class transport, you are ordered to release control of your helm. Mal
: Looks like civilization finally caught up with us.
: [During Book's interrogation
] Pirates. Pirates with their own chaplain. There's an oddity. Book
: Not the only oddity this end of space, Commander. Way of things not always so plain as on the central planets. Rules can be a mite fuzzier.
: Reavers? Mal
: That is what I said. Commander Harken
: You can't imagine how many times men in my position hear that excuse. "Reavers did it." Mal
: It's the truth. Commander Harken
: You saw them, did you? Mal
: Wouldn't be sitting here talking to you if I had.
