EXT. SERENITY - RAMP/CARGO BAY - DAY
On the open ramp of Serenity, MAL, ZOE and JAYNE stand facing the dust. MARCO can be seen hobbling off in the distance.
Well, I could do with a good punch-up. Being held at gun-point gets on my nerves a mite. Being held at gun-point by you - well, that don't make it no better. 'Sides, I'd like to see how you do in a fight.
Zoe - why don't you stay here with Wash and have yourself some time alone. Jayne, you an' I'll take the four-wheel over to Mineral Wells, and get to know each other.
Aye-aye Cap'n! You two boys behave yourselves now, y'hear?
Oh, and Jayne - if you're thinkin' of double-crossing us and putting a hurtin' on the Captain, here .... don't even try.
Jayne looks surprised, then grins.
INT. MUSTANG BAR - CORNER BOOTH
Mal and Jayne both have jugs of beer in their hands, as they sit across from each other.
It's a manly name, is what it is - call me a girl and I'll put you through the table. T' answer y'r question though, I been with Marco a few months now - it was a job.
You going to shoot me like you did Marco, soon as you get a better offer?
The offer'd have to be a good one t' do that.
Well, I'm satisfied. Want to play a game of pool?
Mal and Jayne both drain their jugs, and drop them to the table simultaneously.
INT. MUSTANG BAR - BY POOL TABLE
Mal and Jayne are standing to the left. Jayne is chalking the end of a cue. On the opposite side stand their opponents - POOL PLAYER 1 and POOL PLAYER 2 - who are grizzly and dusty, looking like they've had a bit to drink.
POOL PLAYER 1
Jayne, huh? What's a girlie-girl like you doin' in a place like this?
(Pauses chalking, looks over at pool player)
POOL PLAYER 1
I aksed what a girl's gonna do in a place like this? You think you're gonna beat us, girl-man?
I sure intend to, bao bei.
Jayne swipes Pool Player 1 with cue, who goes down. Pool Player 2 takes a swing at Mal, who ducks and punches him in the stomach.
INT. MUSTANG BAR - ROOM VIEW
Bar fight spreads, furniture knocked over and men punched out. Shouting and yells as cues and chairs are used. Mal and Jayne remain on their feet as they fight, while opponents go down around them.
INT. SERENITY - COMMON AREA
The next morning. Zoe is preparing her breakfast when Jayne and Mal stumble in, looking the worse for wear.
Jayne and Mal look at each other, exchange sheepish grins.
He's alright, Zoe. Certainly handled himself well. He'll be good on the crew - and useful too.
I'll bet. You two really bonded, huh?
I'd say that was a helluva first date you two had.
Jayne splutters, tries to form words, fails. He slumps in a chair, leaning back.
