Can't Take the Sky
"Jaynestown" Quotes

Simon: I swear... when it's appropriate.
Kaylee: Simon, the whole point of swearing is that it ain't appropriate.

Kaylee: Bye now. Have good sex.

Jayne: They don't put you on a pedestal in the town square for that.
Mal: Yeah, 'cept I'm looking at some pretty compelling evidence says they do.

Simon: This must be what going mad feels like.

Wash: I think they captured him, though. You know, captured his essence.
Kaylee: Looks sorta angry, don't he?
Wash: That's kinda what I meant.

Jayne: Uh, hey, I got an idea. Instead of us hangin' around playin' art critic 'til I get pinched by the man, how's about we move away from this eerie-ass piece of work and get along with our increasingly eerie-ass day, how's that?

Wash: We got to go to the crappy town where I'm a hero!

Simon: (Drunk) You know, I've saved lives. Dozens. Maybe hundreds. I... I reattached a girl's leg. Her whole leg. She named her hamster after me. I got a hamster. He drops a box of money; he gets a town.
Kaylee: (Also drunk) Hamsters is nice.
Simon: To Jayne. The box-dropping, man-ape-gone-wrong thing.

Kaylee: You know, you are pretty funny.
Simon: And you're pretty... pretty.

Mal: It's time to get out of this nut house. I got some plannin' to work out.
Kaylee: Now, Captain? Things are goin' so well.
Mal: I suppose. Jayne's certainly feeling better about life, but -
Kaylee: (Significantly) I said, things are going well.
Mal: Oh. "Well."

Book: River? Please, why don't you come on out?
River: No! I can't. Too much hair.

Zoe: River, honey, he's putting the hair away now.
River: Doesn't matter. It'll still be there. Waiting.

Jayne: (Tearfully) You guys had a riot? On account of me? My very own riot?

Simon: Excuse me. Could I, uh... could I see a menu?
Barkeep: A what?

Jayne: Um... I'm no good with words. Don't... don't use 'em much myself. But I want to thank you all for bein' here, and uh, thinkin' so much of me. Uh... far as I see it, you people been given the shortest end of the stick ever been offered a human soul in this crap-heel 'verse. But you took that end and you... well, you took it. And that's... well, I guess that's somethin'.
Kaylee: Wow. That didn't sound half bad.
Mal: I'm shocked my own self.

River: Just keep walkin', preacher man.

Kaylee: What's so damn important about bein' proper? It don't mean nothin' out here in the black.
Simon: It means more out here. It's all I have.

Kaylee: So, when we made love last night -
Simon: When we what?!
Kaylee: You really are such an easy mark.

Jayne: Hell, there weren't a one of 'em understood what happened out there. They're probably sticking that statue right back up.
Mal: Most like.
Jayne: I don't know what that eats at me so.
Mal: It's my estimation that every man ever got a statue made of him was one kind of a son of a bitch or another. Ain't about you Jayne. It's about what they need.
