Shepard Book: What are we up to, sweetheart?

River Tam: Fixing your Bible.

Shepard Book: I, um… What?

River Tam: Bible’s broken. Contradictions, false logistics – doesn’t make sense.

Shepard Book: No, no. You-you-you can’t…

River Tam: So we’ll integrate non-progressional evolution theory with God’s creation of Eden. Eleven inherent metaphoric parallels already there. Eleven. Important number. Prime number. One goes into the house of eleven eleven times, but always comes out one. Noah’s ark is a problem.

Shepard Book: Really?

River Tam: We’ll have to call it early quantum state phenomenon. Only way to fit 5000 species of mammal on the same boat.

Shepard Book: River, you don’t fix the Bible.

River Tam: It’s broken. It doesn’t make sense.

Shepard Book: It’s not about making sense. It’s about believing in something, and letting that belief be real enough to change your life. It’s about faith. You don’t fix faith, River. It fixes you.

It’s broken. It doesn’t make sense.
