Young Simon: So... how'd the independents cut us off?
Young River: They were using dinosaurs.
Young Simon: Jien tah-duh guay!

River: It's not okay! You can't just dig into me, shove twenty needles in my eyes and ask me what I see!

Mal: So, she's added cussing and hurling about of things to her repertoire. She really is a prodigy.

River: The human body can be drained of blood in 8.6 seconds given adequate vacuuming systems.
Mal: See, morbid and creepifying, I got no problem with, long as she does it quiet-like.

Mal: You know, they walk just as easy if you lead 'em.
Jayne: I like smackin' 'em.

Zoe: Next time we smuggle stock, let's make it something smaller.
Wash: Yeah, we should start dealing in those black-market beagles.

River: They weren't cows inside. They were waiting to be, but they forgot. Now they see the sky and they remember what they are.
Mal: Is it bad that what she said made perfect sense to me?

Simon: Right. I'm very sorry if she tipped off anyone about your cunningly concealed herd of cows.

Kaylee: You think this would make a nice gift?
Inara: A gift? For whom?
Kaylee: I just kinda like it. It's rich, you know?
Inara: Ooh. For Simon.
Kaylee: I didn't say that.
Inara: You don't do a very good job of hiding your interest.

Kaylee: You were being mean, is what. And if that's what you think of this life, then you can't think much of them that choose it, can you.

Mal: This is the last time. Last time with cows. Hear there was an idea regarding beagles? They have smallish droppings?

Mal: Never goes smooth. How come it never goes smooth?

Mal: That's good. You lie there and be ironical.

Mal: Doctor could be called a lot of things. Coward wouldn't be one of 'em, though.

River: We're lost... lost in the woods.

Jayne: "Dear Diary, Today I was pompous and my sister was crazy." "Today, we were kidnapped by hill folk never to be seen again. It was the best day ever."

Zoe: You sanguine about the kind of reception we're up to receive on an Alliance ship, Cap?
Mal: Absolutely. What's "sanguine" mean?
Zoe: "Sanguine." Hopeful. Plus, point of interest, it also means "bloody."
Mal: Well, that pretty much covers all the options, don't it?

Simon: These are better than the Cambersons' berries.
River: They are. Except they're poison.
River: He believed her. Made a face.
Simon: You are such a brat!

River: Ruby doesn't talk. Her voice got scared away.

Simon: She has done nothing to you! If she dies tonight, it won't be God's will that killed her, it'll be you! Your lunacy! Your ignorance!

Simon: Light it.
River: Time to go.

Mal: Well, look at this! Appears we got here just in the nick of time. What does that make us?
Zoe: Big damn heroes, sir.

Mal: Y'all see the man hanging out of the spaceship with the really big gun? Now I'm not saying you weren't easy to find. It was kinda out of our way, and he didn't want to come in the first place. Man's lookin' to kill some folk. So really it's his will y'all should worry about thwarting. Gotta say, doctor, your talent for alienatin' folk is near miraculous.
Simon: Yes, I'm very proud.

Simon: Captain... why did you come back for us?
Mal: You're on my crew.
Simon: Yeah, but you don't even like me. Why'd you come back?
Mal: You're on my crew. Why we still talking about this?

Mal:"Ya, but she's our witch so cut her the hell down."

Nice list!

Enjoyed reading those lines from that episode. “Safe” was one of the episodes that grew on me. The talk between brother and sister in the hill folk medical room was excellent. Simon explaining that he had to make sure River was safe and she understanding that he’d given up everything to do that, total sacrifice.

I think it makes people look inside, to think, who on your own list would you do that far? Kind of an emotional question.

nice work leedavidt :)
