“Shepherd Book: River? Please, why don’t you come on out? River: No, I can’t. Too much hair. Shepherd Book: Is that it? Zoë: Hell yes, preacher. If I didn’t have stuff to get done, Id’ be in there with her. Shepherd Book: It’s the rules of my order. Like the book, it symbolises.. Zoë: River, honey, he’s putting the hair away now. River: It doesn’t matter. It’ll still be there. Waiting.” — Firefly, episode 7, “Jaynestown”.
