Capt. Malcolm Reynolds: But it ain't all buttons and charts, little albatross. You know what the first rule of flying is?

Apparently I'm doing something right: she starts right up, gets me where I need to go, and just like her "little sister" did before her, she always brings me home. As long as there's gas.
River Tam: I do. But I like to hear you say it.
Capt. Malcolm Reynolds: Love. You can learn all the math in the 'Verse, but you take a boat in the air that you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as a turn of the worlds. Love keeps her in the air when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurtin' before she keens. Makes her a home.
