Fly: …what are you doing?
Fly: What are you doing?
Ruby: I’m…cleaning out my inbox.
Fly: Those are all emails from Ginger.
Ruby: …yes, they are.
Fly: So, you miss her?
Ruby: …yes. She hasn’t emailed me at all since she left.
Fly: She’s been sending postcards.
Ruby: It’s not the same.
Fly: Do you want to watch a movie?
Ruby: What movie?
Fly: I don’t care – whatever you want.
Ruby: What day is it?
Ruby: Friday, the 9th?
Ruby: Ginger’s official approved movie list says today is the day to watch…Firefly.
Ruby: Specifically, the episode “Trash.”
Fly: Does her list include reasons why?
Ruby: It’s Ginger.
Fly: So…her reasons are?
Ruby: Ahem – “Early January is extremely cold and the first and last shots of the episode take place in a desert, where it is extremely hot. Plus, it ends on a high note.”
Fly: It does?
Ruby: …it’s creepy when she does this…
Fly: Does what?
Ruby: “Yes, Fly. It does. It ends on a high note. The last lines in the episodes are ‘Yup. Good day.’ And then the door closes on Mal’s smile.”
Fly: You’re right. It’s creepy.
Ruby: Should we watch it?
Fly: …you really miss her, don’t you?
Ruby: Yeah. I do.
Fly: Then let’s watch it.

Ginger: Somewhere in the world…someone took my advice…
Ginger: …I miss Ruby. And real food.
