Summary: Mal has a problem
Mal knows he been spending too much time with the bottle. He figures the crew thinks so too, but they’re too polite to tell the Captain he’s being a gorram fool. They’ll let him brood in his cabin sucking down the juice; least ’til it gets inconvenient for them. Then they’ll mutiny or abandon him or something.
Maybe Jayne’s already planning it. Wouldn’t surprise him a bit.
Worst part is, the damn sauce don’t do no good.
He can drink himself blind as a one-eyed drop fiend in an eclipse every night and he still wakes up thinking of Inara.
