Mal : Cattle on the ship three weeks, she don't go near 'em. Suddenly we're on Jianying, and she's got a driving need to commune with the beasts?

Mal : Is it bad that what she said made perfect sense to me?
River Tam : I remember everything. I remember too much. And some of it's made up, and some of it can't be quantified, and there's secrets, and...
Simon : Hey, i-it's okay.
River Tam : But, I understand. You gave up everything you had to find me. You found me broken. It's hard for you. You gave up everything you had.

Doralee : I don't understand. If Ruby didn't talk, how do you know...?

Doralee : "Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live."
