Commander Harken: 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.
Mal: 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.
Commander Harken: Seems odd you'd name your ship after a battle you were on the wrong side of.
Mal: May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.
Mal: Now I gotta know how close the Alliance is. Exactly how much you told them before Wash scrambled your call. So I've given Jayne here the job of finding out.
Jayne: [Unsheathes a big knife.] He was non-specific as to how.
Mal: [Mutters to Jayne.] Now you only gotta scare him.
Jayne: Pain is scary.
Wash: I don't know, but if she doesn't give more power to offset the burn through this landing is going to get very interesting.
Mal: Define interesting.
Wash: "Oh God, Oh God we're all going to die"?
Mal: [Talking into the intercom.] This the captain speaking. We might experience some turbulence, then explode.
