Wash points out that, good intentions aside, Simon is suggesting they break into a very secure facility. Simon explains that it's difficult, but it can be done. This cuts into some detailed exposition, where Simon pulls out a computerized map of the facility and goes over the security measures. There are guards. There are scanners. There are keycards. You get the picture. The hard part will be getting inside, but once they pass that barrier, it should get easier. Mal mentions that Simon and River are fugitives from the Alliance. How will they bypass security? Simon says that he and River are going to go in the front door. Mal scoffs, but Simon assures him that his and River's entry is the easy part; it's everybody else that's going to be a challenge. Simon says they'll need to procure items off the ship. Before he can even ask for volunteers, everybody but Zoe and Mal raises a hand.
The first barrier is "breaching the perimeter" to get to the hospital. Only "official" vehicles are allowed in. Since stealing a vehicle is too risky, they're going to have to salvage one from a local junkyard. We cut to Kaylee and Wash, wandering around said junkyard. Kaylee whines about having to spend her first trip to the core planet digging through spaceship parts. You'd think she'd enjoy that sort of thing, with her engine fetish. Sure enough, she marvels over something that looks like a fluorescent tube. Wash picks up a device that looks like the catalyzer from "Out of Gas" and tosses it. Then he notices the remains of an entire space ambulance. I hope they picked up some spare parts for Serenity while they were there, considering that they all nearly died the last time something broke.
