We were firmly set, like our fathers and grandfathers, mothers and grandmothers before us, on being what we were, and had always been.

    I switched on. He even jokingly hints that he isn't anywhere near as judgmental as Mal would seem to think. At the end of the pilot episode " Serenity ", Inara reassures Book when he confesses his doubts and questions to her.

We pay our debts. Once it was the only breed known in Wilts, and extended over the entire county; it was a big animal, the largest of the fine-woolled sheep in England, but for looks it certainly compared badly with modern downland breeds and possessed, it was said, all the points which the breeder, or improver, was against.
