"What were you in the war? That big war you failed to win? You were a sergeant, yeah? Sergeant Malcolm Reynolds ... balls and bayonets brigade. Big, tough veteran. Now you got yourself a ship and you're a captain. Only I think, you're still a sergeant, see? Still a soldier. A man of honor in a den of thieves. Well, this is my gorramn den, and I don't like the way you look down on me. I'm above you, better than! Businessman, see? Roots in the community. You're just a scavenger."
