Fun Stuff

From "Firefly: The Train Job (#1.1)" (2002)
Book: How's the girl?
Mal: Still a little whimsical in the brainpan. Seems calm enough though.
Mal: [River knocks over a tray of medical instruments; both look her way at the sound of instruments clattering] Mm-hmm.
Book: That young man's very brave.
Mal: Yeah.
Mal: He's my hero.
Book: Gave up everything to free his sister from that place. Go from being a doctor on the central planets to hiding on the fringes of the system... Not many who would do that.
