Mike Baxter: René Descartes.
Mandy Baxter: She was awesome. We learned about her in Philosophy, today. She was French so I don't really know why she was speaking Italian.
Mike Baxter: Uh, money well spent.
Mandy Baxter: I think René Descartes was a monsieur.

James 'Ghost' St. Patrick: There is no secret, just me.
Simon Stern: I don't follow.
James 'Ghost' St. Patrick: Well, I'm a black man from the hood. Most of the guys I came up with are either dead or in jail. I live in the penthouse of my building, above the lawyers and doctors trying to get into my club. See... people take you at face value, Simon. Me? Well, I have to transform to meet everyone's expectations, constantly. Truth isn't one thing because I'm not one thing. You understand? I take all my experiences and use them to cater to all different kinds of people, under one roof. Whether it's the black professional athlete ordering his next bottle of Ciroc. Or whether its the Wall Street MF getting black out drunk on the company's dime. I understand them, I get 'em. And because I get 'em, I get 'em. And because I get 'em, I get rich.”
Jayne: Reaver's ain't men.
Book: Of course they are. Too long removed from civilization perhaps, but men. And, I believe there's a power greater than men. A power that heals.
Mal: Reavers might take issue with that philosophy...if they had a philosophy...and they weren't too busy gnawing on your insides. Jayne's right. Reavers ain't men. Or they forgot how to be. Come to just nothin'. They got out to the edge of the galaxy, to that place of nothin', and that's what they became.”
Chidi: It's frowned upon.
Michael: Okay. What if the reason you want to murder someone is to make your life easier? That's okay, right?”
Michael: 'Everyone in this story sucks and belongs in the Bad Place. The thief is bad. The officer chasing him is bad. All the whiny prostitutes are bad. Plus, they're all French, so they're going to the Bad Place automatically.'
Chidi: Do you see how you're already off topic?
Michael: Chidi, I've been around a long time like, all of it. But I know for a fact that if you steal a loaf of bread, it's a negative 17 points, 20 if it's a baguette because that makes you more French.”
