That Jayne Quote

A reader supplies it:  “Hell, I’ll kill a man in a fair fight… or if I think he’s gonna start a fair fight, or if he bothers me, or if there’s a woman, or if I’m gettin’ paid – mostly only when I’m gettin’ paid…”

Another noteworthy Jayne line comes in that episode of Firefly where the crew are debating whether to go help some damsels in distress on a nearby planet.  I can’t locate the lines, but it’s something like:

JAYNE:  Why should we be helpin’ these folk?  We don’t know them.  They’re nothing to us.

MAL:  They’re whores.

JAYNE:  I’m in.
