My favorite of all the Firefly flashbacks in “Out of Gas” is how Mal “found” Kaylee. For all of how backwards and assholic Mal can be, especially when it comes to Inara, he’s got utterly no judgment about why Kaylee was on the ship to begin with, never once questions what she says, immediately obeys when she asks for a tool, and hires her as mechanic on the spot.
