The first rule of flying ~ Firefly, Serenity & Love

MAL
It ain’t all buttons and charts, little albatross. Know what the first rule of flying is? Well I s’pose you do, since you already know what I’m ’bout to say.
RIVER
I do. But I like to hear you say it.
MAL
Love.
 
You can know all the math in the ‘verse but take a boat in the air that you don’t love? She’ll shake you off just as sure as a turn in the worlds.

Love keeps her in the air when she oughtta fall down…tells you she’s hurtin’ ‘fore she keens…makes her a home.
RIVER
Storm’s getting worse.
MAL
We’ll pass through it soon enough.
