Quotes

Tracey: When you can't run, you crawl, and when you can't crawl - when you can't do that...

Zoë: You find someone to carry you.

Hoban 'Wash' Washburne: Man walks down the street in that hat, people know he's not afraid of anything.

Jayne: [about his mother's homemade hat] How's it sit? Pretty cunning, don't you think?

Mal: Everybody dies, Tracey. Someone's carryin' a bullet for you right now, doesn't even know it. The trick is, die of old age before it finds you.

River Tam: My food is problematic.

Jayne Cobb: Girl's a mind-readin' genius, can't even figure out how to eat an ice-planet.

Tracey: You know, it's funny. We went to the war never looking to come back, but it's the real world I couldn't survive. You two carried me through that war, and now I need you to carry me just a little bit further, if you can. Tell my folks I wanted to do right by them, and that I'm at peace and all. When you can't run anymore, you crawl. And when you can't do that, well... Yeah, you know the rest.
