Trivia

The garbled line Mal speaks to Simon as they are about to burned at the stake is "Your talent for alienating folks is near miraculous," to which he responds "Yes, I'm very proud." See more »

Goofs

The empty cargo bay with neat little piles of cow manure despite a herd milling around in there for days, is highly suspect. Also, one of the cows kicks a cow patty as they exit, revealing it a solid prop instead of mushy. See more »

Quotes

Zoë: Badger just hailed us. Gettin' impatient for his share. Wants us to drop it to his men on the Kowlan Fed Base.
Jayne: That'd be a hell of a lot easier to do without the two most wanted on board. Life would look to be simpler us not carrying fugies.
Zoë: He is right, you know.
Mal: Yeah. Simpler.

The Doctor and the Witch

"Safe" is another entertaining episode of "Firefly". It is good to see the concern of Mal with his crew. One funny moment is when Jayne puts Simon's belongs back in his cabin. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Safe"
