    I love The Great Santini! The book more than the movie, mind you.

    Paraphrasing:

    "You just listen to the old Pork Chop Express here now and take his advice on a dark and stormy night when the lightning's crashin' and the thunder's rollin' and the rain's coming down in sheets thick as lead. Just remember what old Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, and the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big old storm right square in the eye and he says, 'Give me your best shot, pal. I can take it.'"

Yes sir, the check is in the mail."

    Simon (to Jayne, his patient): "No matter what you do, or say or plot, no matter how you come down on us… I will never, ever harm you. You're on this table, you're safe. 'Cause I'm your medic, and however little we may like or trust each other, we're on the same crew. Got the same troubles, same enemies, and more than enough of both. Now, we could circle each other and growl, sleep with one eye open, but that thought wearies me. I don't care what you've done, I don't know what you're planning on doing, but I'm trusting you. I think you should do the same. 'Cause I don't see this working any other way."

    Inara (walking up behind him): "You call this going well?"

    "When asked by the New York Times to explain his creative process, Stallone remarked that he was 'astounded by people who take 18 years to write something.' 'That’s how long it took that guy to write Madame Bovary,' he added. 'And was that ever on a best-seller list? No. It was a lousy book and it made a lousy movie.'"

    You know, I always enjoy Stallone's trenchant opinions on French literature.

    Simon (at a sideshow exhibit): "Yep—it's a cow fetus."
    Kaylee: "Guess so. It does seem to have an awful lot of limbs."
    Simon: "It's mutated."
    Kaylee: "But cow? How do you figure?"
    Simon: "It's upside down."
    Kaylee (tilting her head to one side): "Oh yeah. Cow."
    Simon: "And I'm out twelve bits! I really know how to show a girl a... disgusting time."
