Alright, guys, thanks. That really helped push it out of my mind.
I believed pretty much the same things, but I wanted to see if others did too. Now that I've got solid ground against the entire Kaylee-knowing-Tracey thing, I think I can finally push it out of my mind.
Though, it would make for an interesting parrallel of the episode... -cackle- Fanfiction idea!
When you can't run, you crawl, and when you can't do that you sit still and watch episodes of Firefly.

As for Kaylee brushing off Simon, any guy saying your really the only woman I can have because everyone else is either taken or my sister, well any girl would be pretty pissed at that. That's like some guy saying to a girl well since I can't have the cheerleader I might as well be with you. Maybe a bit out here but it's the same reaction.
As for Tracy I'm sorry Joss killed him off. Now there was someone I felt really had chemestry with Kaylee and would have made a better match. (I still don't see the relationship between Kaylee and Simon. Something is just off there)

Simon was trying to make a joke. Not a successful one, of course, but this was really an occasion of Kaylee's insecurity acting up just as much as Simon's lack of humorous judgment.
Kaylee's an odd creature in that she can be verty perceptive about people (say, Book in the pilot) and then she can be fairly dense. Simon is easily flustered, but she never tries to understand that. She expects him to say the right thing, and when he so obviously messes up she just gets mad without trying to place it in context.
Having Mal staring at you like he'll shoot you after waking up with Kaylee in "Jaynestown", yes, that can send a person stumbling over his words. Especially funny since it was obviously just a joke to Mal. Kaylee never even bothers to notice.
Then in the cow scene, she's pushing for compliments. He tries to make a joke and off she goes. She could have seen the humor if she wasn't so insecure, if she didn't hold Simon responsible for convincing her she has a chance with him. She's the one with the crush but she acts as passively as if he's supposed to woo her and gets angry when he fails to. It's weird.
That sort of insecurity makes her vulnerable to Tracey who's quite obviously playing to her admiration because it's another opportunity for him to use, just like Mal and Zoe are.

I think its less insecurity (we all know haow Mal met her, she's not a shy lass when it comes to relationships) and more emotional immaturity - she's yet to learn to be objective - beleive it or not, the one thing that helps a girl learn that is talking things over with friends (girly gossip!) and who exactly, can she do that with?
