That's the plan.

          MAL
          Think you can work out how to get
          her in the --
          
She is flipping switches without even looking, as the ship hums to life.

          EXT. SERENITY - CONTINUING

Her engines fire up and tilt. She lifts gently off the ground.

          INT. BRIDGE - CONTINUING
Mal looks slightly, only slightly nonplussed.

          MAL
          Okay, clearly some aptitude for
          the... but it ain't all buttons
          A0 and charts, .
          You know what the first rule of
          flying is? Well, I suppose you
          do, since you already know what
          I'm about to say.

          RIVER

          Love. You can learn all the math
          in the 'verse, but you take a boat
          in the air you don't love, she'll
          shake you off just as sure as the
          turning of worlds. Love keeps her
          in the air when she oughta fall
          down, tells you she's hurting
          'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
          
River also looks out at the sky.

          RIVER
          Storm's getting worse.

          MAL
          We'll pass through it soon enough.
       
 He pulls back on the steering column, feeling her go.
