greed is a sin against god, just as all mortal sins, in as much as man condemns things eternal for the sake of temporal things.

I’m thinking we’ll rise again.
“You’ll get some chow, soon enough,” Mal said as they loaded the last crate. He knew what Jayne meant. Nutrient paste wasn’t exactly the most edible of edibles, even with the spices that Shepherd Book had recommended, so long ago. “Let’s get this cargo into town. And don’t go roughin’ up the locals. Put on your pretty face and they might even feed you. Dohn ma?”
Jayne showed his teeth in his version of a smile and only looked more intimidating. He sat in the passenger seat of the mule, moving his gun in front of his chest and propping a boot up on the dashboard. “Let’s get goin’, then. Deliver this stuff and be outta the world.”
Jayne glared at his captain. “Might not be ornery if we could afford food on this gorram boat.” His stomach felt hollow. There had been nothing edible in their pantry except nutrient paste for going on three days. When Jayne was hungry, Jayne was angry. And when Jayne was angry, he usually got himself into trouble.
He began loading the boxes of goods onto their new mule, the third they’d had already. He wasn’t even thinking about women at the moment, which was something rare. All he could focus on was the pit in his stomach where a nice hot meal should be and grumbled something incoherent.
Paradiso. A big, dusty planet, mostly deserts and rocks around the equator, and frozen tundras at the poles. There were green areas, here and there, when Mal looked down from Serenity’s bridge windows as he brought the ship down from the black, cruising over the planet.
Jayne had been on his fifth rep of sit-ups when he heard the captain’s voice over the intercom. He grumbled and pulled his shirt on. The only thing that kept him from letting out a slew of Mandarin curses was the promise of coin. Jobs had been few and far between for too long.
Now you’re confusing insanity and telepathy. Don’t be a Buhn Dahn.
Well… you got it PR guy.
