In The Message, after they've 'escaped' from the Alliance, and are being buried in the snow (or somewhere around there) if you look closely at Wash, he's got his hands out as though he's holding the controls, but there's nothing in his hands.

Li'l River playing at Independents vs Alliance.
To paraphrase - They were using dinosaurs, so there was a resort to cannibalism...

When the crew are looking at the statue in Jaynes town Simon puts his finger up to his mouth in shock, and I believe he did it a second time in the episode. Looking at the yourtube video of Nathan kissing Sean I notice Sean's making the same gesture at one point. Makes me wonder if it was scripted or his natural reaction.
"Also, I can kill you with my brain"

Quote:I just noticed this, when Mal goes to pick up River, he kicks Jayne to get him up.
Quote:...the image of River's brain starts acting up, showing all the areas of her brain that are reacting to her psychic understanding of Jayne's betrayal, reason why she then screams. And Simon is looking at Jayne, yes, so he does miss it.

Quote:I've heard it asked elsewhere what Mal meant by "you have no idea", in response to The Operative's "There are a lot of innocent people in the air being killed right now." I think that this is in reference to the Reavers. After all, they were just innocent people. And now they're in the air, being killed by Mal's crew. And, earlier, shot at by The Operative's crew.

In the barfight in... GORRAM! I cannot recall the episode for the life of me... anyhow, it's not 'The Train Job.' It's the one with the slave traders, can't remember the rest of the ep... My observation is that Jayne has a cigar in his mouth the whole time while he fights off several men with his pool que. (That went well...)

I don't know why this passed by me everytime, but when Mal and Nandi start kissing in 'Heart Of Gold', she says "I'm not her..." to which Mal replies with something I can't remember. But I love how EVERYONE can spot the tension between those too...

I believe Mal says, "There's nobody in this room but you and me." Which may have been true at that moment, literally and even in the metaphoric sense -- but his reaction next morning when he's busted by Inara shows that there was really somebody there with them all along.

Quote:Did anyone else notice that the Operative only calls Mal "Mal" after he stabs him during the big fight at the end? It's weird!
Before, he only called him "Captain" or "Malcolm", very formal, very proper. But they're fighting, there's the stab...and a look of almost regret passes over the Operative's face, and he murmurs, "Do you know what your sin is...Mal?"

I think Mal would be perfectly able to put Inara away while he's with someone else, although that someone else would have to be a "remarkable woman" (as he himself calls Nandi) in order for him to be able to do that. (I don't think he'd go with a lesser woman, anyway.) Now, Inara would come right back once he's no longer with the other woman, but not during.

Here's one that is probably the most likely to seroiousley be a coincidence:
In Ariel, when Simon, Jayne, and River are in the brain-scanning room, Jayne says something along the lines of: "Now hurry up, we gotta book," and just at the moment he says the word "book," River starts screaming. Couple of possibilities for this: one, that Book is evil and River just got reminded of it, two: Book WAS evil, and the fact that she is in a hospital run by the "evil" alliance just tuned her into that more, three (most likely one): River wasn't screaming about the fact that Jayne said "we gotta book," but that she knows where they're going to Book too - namely, a trap, or four: none of the above, and I'm just crazy.
Just a thought.

Quote:Observation from "Heart of Gold": Jayne, this big rugged man's man... was BRAIDING the ladies (whore's) hair. BRAIDING IT. You must check that out. If gives an even newer depth to this supposed hard ass mercenary.

Also, does anyone know if this was specified in the casting? -- Almost all of the characters in the show look like they have some Asian descent. Every once in a while I look at Kaylee and notice the resemblance, and it's clear that River has some Asian blood in her. Very fitting for a `verse supposedly run by the US and China.
