Description

The Operative in 'Serenity' (2005) is definitely one of my all-time favourite villains... and this scene is why. Chiwetel Ejiofor steals every scene he's in, but there's some great acting by Nathan Fillion here too. --- The Operative: I'm sorry. If your quarry goes to ground, leave no ground to go to. You should have taken my offer. Or did you think none of this was your fault? Mal: I don't murder children. The Operative: I do. If I have to. Mal: Why? Do you even know why they sent you? The Operative: It's not my place to ask. I believe in something greater than myself. A better world. A world without sin. Mal: So me and mine gotta lay down and die... so you can live in your better world? The Operative: I'm not going to live there. There's no place for me there... any more than there is for you. Malcolm... I'm a monster. What I do is evil. I have no illusions about it, but it must be done. Mal: Keep talking. You're not getting a location trace off this wave. The Operative: And every minute you keep River Tam from me more people will die- Mal: You think I care? The Operative: Of course you care. You're not a Reaver, Mal. You're a human man, and you will never understand how- --- "We're making a better world. All of them, better worlds."
