“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

A conversational moment from today...

- No ma'am, if you'd stopped for the sign we wouldn't be having this conversation.

- Same thing for the seatbelt, if you'd been wearing it I wouldn't be giving you the ticket.

- Yes, I do have better things to do right now, but this is one of those things the taxpayers expect me to do.

- I understand you're in a hurry, but once those blue lights come on we switch over to my schedule, not yours.

The sad part is, I have to repeat variations of it all the time.
