The Operative:”There are a lot of innocent people in the air being killed right now.”
Mal:”You have no idea how true that is.”
I love this line so much.
Because the Reavers were innocent, once. As innocent as anybody else, anyway. They didn’t ask to be tested on and they certainly didn’t ask to become monsters.
It was done to them. Every Reaver who dies is a life taken by the Alliance.
