  • One of the best episodes to quote from.

    I loved this episode, every characters personalities we're truly highlighted in this episode. This episode had many excellent quotes but I think my personal favorite had to be close to then end of the episode.

    Patron: [River is about to be burned at the stake] This is a holy cleansing. You cannot think to thwart God's will. Mal: Y'all see the man hangin' out of the spaceship with the really big gun? I'm not saying you weren't easy to find, but it was kind of out of our way and he didn't wanna come in the first place. Man's lookin' to kill some folk. So really it's his will y'all should worry about thwarting. Mal: [to Simon] Gotta say, Doctor, your talent for alienatin' folks is near miraculous. Simon: Yes, I'm very proud. Mal: [about River] Cut her down. Patron: The girl is a witch. Mal: Yeah, but she's our witch. [Cocks shotgun and aims at Town Patron] Mal: So cut her the hell down.
