Trivia

While this episode is currently rated the lowest, it's the origin of one of the most quoted scenes: Mal: ...Well, Zoe, looks like we got here in the nick of time. What does that make us? Zoe: Big damn heroes, sir. 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: You sanguine about the kinda reception we're apt to receive on an Alliance ship, Captain?
Mal: Absolutely. What's "sanguine" mean?
Zoë: Sanguine. Hopeful. Plus, point of interest, it also means "bloody".
Mal: Well, that pretty much covers all the options, don't it?

The Doctor and the Witch

When the locals discover that River can read minds, they believe she is a witch and wants to burn her at stake.

"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"
