"Serenity" (2005)

 

Captain Malcolm Reynolds Delivers 'I Aim to Misbehave' Address to Serenity Crew

 

This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried 'til River dug it up.

This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear 'cause  there's a whole universe of folk who're gonna know it, too. They’re gonna see it.

Somebody has to speak for these people.

Y'all got on this boat for different reasons, but y'all come to the same place. So now I'm askin' more of you than I have before. Maybe all.

As 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 runnin'.

I aim to misbehave.
