I CAN'T FREAKING BELIEVE IT.... I too just watched Safe, and I too wondered the same thing. I just saw this thread and thought it would be a great place to post my, "how'd they know Simon was a Dr." question. And here it is. I'm so frustrated by the timing that I'm going to ask anyway...
Hey, in Safe, how in the world did those hill folk - that spent a lot of time lurking out of site in bushes - know that Simon was a Dr.??!! There's no way they could have known that that I can figure... no possible way...

I'd like to be king of all Londinum and wear a shiny hat.

Ahh...I finally noticed something new just today while watching the pilot episode again.

After Kaylee is shot by the Fed and simon is operating on her there are a couple shots of her laying on the medical table. One shot has Kaylee's left leg in frame and you can see clearly that she has stitched a teddy bear into the pantleg of her mechanics overalls. I thought that was endearing. Here's Kaylee who's such a girly girl she actually stitched a teddy bear into her work clothes.

After observing the bear I paid attention to any other shots of her in the episode just to see if there are other cute things worth noticing and I found one other...she has a little red heart on the front of her overalls too. You can see the heart when she places her hands on her hips after Mal says "I don't think there's a power in the 'verse can stop Kaylee from being cheerful".



Do not fear me. Ours is a peaceful race, and we must live in harmony.

ah, you should have listened to Joss' commentary,
he even called attention to the Teddy bear,
he felt it very much symbolized Kaylee...

Actually I should rewatch the commentaries...
I've watched the episodes many times,
but each of the commentaries only once.

Could have just been for show, part of his 'cover'. On the other hand, seeing how he knocked Book even after he was out, Dobson might enjoy violence, including the kind which involves a spouse.

Found another tidbit. I had decided to watch the pilot with the english subtitles on and noticed something new. When Book is walking and looking at ships at the start of the pilot, the guy from the Brutus tries to lure him in and asks "What's your des Grandpa?" I would assume that "des" is future slang for "destination". So I suppose I can now add "des" in my slang library along with shiny, 'verse, gorram, and others

I just noticed today that Badger has TWO scales on his desk.

I saw this when I wondered to myself what things Badger thought were important enough to have at hands reach. When he moves to sit in his chair in the pilot episode you can pause the DVD to see what he has. To the right of the screen are 2 measuring scales. One is a chemists "pan scale" and the other is a merchants "Hanging scale". I was curious why he would need both in his daily business activities.

It took me about 5 viewings of Our Mrs. Reynolds to notice this one. When Kayhlee is comforting Saffron and saying how Mal is like a monster and makes everybody cry, Jayne's fingerless-gloved hand comes in from the right and strokes her on the shoulder with his pinky, as if he were comforting her too. I couldn't stop laughing.

I also finally noticed in War Stories, the look that Simon gives Book (or rather the back of his head) after he says, "I was there, son. I'm fair sure you haven't shot anyone yet."

I finally noticed River stealing the bread off Jayne's plate at the end of Safe.

Well, as a rule I say girl folk ain't to be trusted.

Zoot,

I knew the song from the late Lonnie Donegan's 1964 recording. But I doubt he wrote this masterpiece himself! My transcription:

Quote:

My wife said I've not to put beans in me ears
Beans in me ears
Beans in me ears
Well my wife said I've not to put beans in me ears
Beans in my ears

Now why should I want to put beans in me ears?
I mean - beans in me ears
It's daft - beans in me ears
Well now why should I want to put beans in me ears?
Beans in my ears

'Cos you can't hear nagging wives when you've got beans in yer ears
Little beans in yer ears
Tiny beans in yer ears
No you can't hear nagging wives when you've got beans in yer ears
Beans in yer ears

What's that you say? Let's put beans in our ears?
Beans in our ears? (Yeah!)
Beans in our ears? (Yeah, beans!)
What's that? You say let's put beans in our ears? (giggling)
Beans? In our ears?

Oi! You'll have to speak up, I've got beans in me ears!
I say, beans in me ears!
In me ears!
Oi, you'll have to speak up, I've got beans in me ears!
In me ears!

(degenerates into madness)

Darling, darling, they've, they've gone and put beans in me ears
Oh, beans in me ears
I say, darling, y'know, they, they've gone and put beans in my ears
Beans, in my ears

That's nice dear, just don't put those beans in your ears (No, I said they've --)
Beans in your ears (No, listen --)
Beans in your ears (No, they've already--)
That's nice dear, but, just don't put those nasty little beans in your ears (No, listen!)
Beans in your ears (Hey! Oh...)

I think that all wives have got beans in their ears
Great big beans in their ears
Whopping beans in their ears
Yes I think that all wives have got beans in their ears
Beans in their ears!

So there you go. The tune is a chirpy folky little number, very mid-60s Lonnie if you know the kind of thing. Banjos and very probably washboards to the fore.

Just watched it last night. That was pretty funny. I never noticed it before either. Kaylee just stole the stage and I never noticed what was going on at the sides of the screen. I don't even know why it was funny but it was. Perfectly executed IMO.

Washburns?

Many a singalong has been enjoyed in our house to that little ditty. We would crowd around the accordion and sing until the neighbours slapped an ASBO on us. Those were the days.

Something I recently noticed about OIS, when Early is in his spaceship and he has a pictureof a woman and a dog. River mentions this later, but she implies that the woman is his mother, and the woman in the picture is white.

BTW Ned, haven't seen you around lately, has the opening of the Apple store really been that exhausting?

I did wonder if Early was adopted. Early's past is fun to speculate on.

Glad to see someone else appreciates the Donegan magic! And no, not around so much these days. I'm such an asocial coward that my presence in a group can never be taken for granted! But I'm still booked in for the Starfury con, so I expect I'll be there.

i DO aim to misbehave


The fact that there was apparently only one brown suede long coat made for Nathan Fillion for the series.

What do I mean? Well, I still have to check "Serenity" to be sure, but I thought that both sleeves on the coat were pretty much intact until Mal was shot in the shoulder by Patience or one of her men. Then he had to stich it up.

Only I just watched "Out of Gas" this morning. In the very first flashback, while Mal is talking about, "what she could be," I noticed the left sleeve was stiched right where he was shot in "Serenity" which happens much later in the timeline.

Now, I'd be checking my facts right now, only I loaned Vol 1 and 2 to a friend who just got to watch them yesterday. He called to say, "It's your fault. I have only 2 DVDs and it's your fault."

In 'Our Mrs Reynolds', the crew are gathered on the bridge trying to fix the damage that Saffron created.

Shepherd Book delivers his speech on what will happen to them when they reach the net and stands behind Mal.

Before and during the part where Mal delivers the line: "Well, keep on it. We can't fall into that net", Shepherd Book smiles and turns away - TWICE!

I'll have to look for Jayne's finger on "Our Mrs. Reynolds," there. Here's some other bits I noticed after dissecting the episode again:

After Jayne is playing with Saffron's shawl ("Can I know her?") Mal says "You're gonna be cleaning latrines with your face if you keep that up." Don't ask me why, but I didn't catch that line until, like, the ninth viewing.

The part where Saffron pulls out the little heat-strip thing and puts it on the door frame, right after she pulls the cover off, the strip starts to glow, like it's heating up.

Saffron then heads to shuttle #2 to make her getaway. She opens the door and Inara is there. As she turns away to apologize, she has this look on her face for a second like "woah, that was close."

Here's a possible goof: The scene after Mal wakes up, he starts buttoning his shirt again. I'm not positive, but I think he buttons his top button twice.

Every well-bred petty crook knows that the small, concealable weapons always go to the far left of the place setting.

In Trash, when Jayne is working on getting the circuit board out of the trash container (while standing on Serenity), the camera pans up the container to him. It passes a computer screen, clearly showing a Windows 2000 screen (New Hardware Detection Wizard, close as I can tell).

He puts his finger into Simon's birthday cake on Out of Gas, I think he even smells the hat his Ma sends him in The Message...

Here's something I just noticed last week long after I'd thought that I'd seen everything that there was to see in every episode:

In War Stories, right before they start the attack on the skyplex the camera pans through everyone really quick and for a split second you can see Simon putting his gun in his pants. Which...makes me burst into uncontrollable giggles.

Simon's a gangsta, yo.

Also, I'll add that, long ago, I'd watched OiS three times before I realized that Early was on the ceiling above Simon. Yes, I was staring at his shirtlessness, which that angle was very, very good for.

Has anyone mentioned the one in the pilot where, having escaped the Reavers, Wash is only pantomiming holding the yoke, his arms extended, no yoke?

Also in the pilot, Badger is peeling an apple on his desk with a device which keeps it a good distance away from him. This not only tells us that he's a man of some small wealth, but maybe that he's cautious about who might slip a Griswold in his apple.

The Crybaby is probably a coffee can: you can see the word "Caffeine" on it.

I figured a Crybaby was not deployed in Bushwacked because, unlike in the pilot, the Alliance cruiser was already upon them. The Crybaby was probably deployed long before the Dortmunder arrived and was a good distance away.

And in War Stories, right before Serenity crashes into the Skyplex, one of the guards is reading a magazine with a model in a swimsuit, a caption reads(as if to warn him!) "Stop Staring!" This was a real magazine, not one created for the show, and the model is the lovely Jami Deadly ( http://www.deadlycurves.com/ ) who was really surprised and pleased to find herself on an episode of Firefly!

In the pilot, Serentity, our Sergeant Reynolds has to make a run to an AA gun to take out that sk9iff. Before he does he reaches into his shirt and pulls out his crucifix and kisses it.

Never noticed this before. Of course the serenity valley battle is where Mal lost his faith. Nicely illustrated!

Someone said it already, but the part in OMR when Jayne reaches out to comfort Saffron is so funny.

And another one of my favorite Jayne moments that I didn't notice at first was in Ariel when Simon is trying to teach them the proper medical terminology or whatever.

Jayne seems to be...sewing 2 napkins together or something. And then Simon sees him and snatches it from him. Haha.

In "Shindig," the scene right after Mal and Inara's conversation, the crew walks the streets of Persephone. After Mal hurts Kaylee's feelings, Zoe, Wash, and Kaylee drive away on the mule. My question is, if they had the mule all along, why would they need to walk? And how did it end up not getting stolen? Persephone strikes me as the kinda place where a vehicle like that could easily be snatched, so it doesn't make sense to just leave it unattended in the middle of the street.

Watched the pilot and Train Job last night in anticipation of the movie tonight. Near the end, the creepifying Blue Hands guy says, "I didn't come 86 million miles to investigate the theft of some medical supplies" (or something to that effect). It occured to me that 86 million miles, spacially, isn't all that far - you know, about the distance from the Sun to the Earth-that-is.

I thought Jane was poking her as a character thing. He kind of pulls the strap of her dress and snaps it back. Like when he puts his finger in Simon's cake in Out of Gas. He's just feeling up the new merchandise.

Watched the pilot and Train Job last night in anticipation of the movie tonight. Near the end, the creepifying Blue Hands guy says, "I didn't come 86 million miles to investigate the theft of some medical supplies" (or something to that effect). It occured to me that 86 million miles, spacially, isn't all that far - you know, about the distance from the Sun to the Earth-that-is.


That's our lovely Firefly writers. They're great with the stories, but when it comes to the science of space, uh...

Unless maybe the blue hands man came from a planet near to the ship they were in. hmm.

Well...

Select to view spoiler:



After watching the movie, that (and the whole cosmology of Firefly) made a lot more sense. 86 million miles is easily plausible, and probably a pretty long distance all things considered.

OK, we all notice Jayne's touchy fingers, so you can get pretty smashed if you had a Firefly drinkinng game that intailed to drink each time you saw Jayne unnessarily touch something like Safforn when he's not in the show.

Well, when the crew first gathers to meet Safforn, notice Jayne's hands. They go on his belt to off his belt in every other shot. I think there's something else in that scene, but I can't remember.

In Train Job, the woman in the yellow mask thingy in the train is really a man. When I noticed it I found it a blaring mistake and I got paranoid about that person. It could be a spy or anybody. I kind of wonder if they purposely put that man in woman clothing or not.

When I find more stuff from watching the series before the movie, I'll post it.

I noticed recently that Mal addresses Kaylee as "meimei" in Serenity. It's Chinese for "little sister," and we hear it more often from Simon adressing River. Still, I think it pegs Mal and Kaylee's friendship.

As for "shiny"--I think it's interesting that the first thing they refer to as shiny really does reflect light: the shiny nutrition supplements. Part of what I like about the "shiny hat" line is that it could be taken both ways.

One thing that's always bugged me is that the crewmembers call Inara "the ambassador" repeatedly during the pilot, and then the term is never used again.

Two details I really love:

In "Our Mrs. Reynolds," Inara's expression when Mal storms right past her, saying that he and Saffron are the only people who don't think their marriage is funny. He's so oblivious sometimes.

The lighting in the "Trash" scene when Mal and YoSafBridge have just stolen the lassiter--it's amazing how the shadows work out so that he looks warm but she looks cold.

"You can't take my show from me,
Because I've got the DVD."

I'm surprised no-one else has mentioned this:

In "Ariel", right after the CGI Helicopter/Ambulance (Heli-lance?) lands, look at the landing gear.

When they cut to the actors, the landing gear has grown wheels!


They're just prop dollies used to move the vehicle to that spot, but I guess they forgot to remove them before shooting.

Not a blooper, but at 12:22 into "The Message", right before River calls Simon a boob, Jayne (with letter in mouth), walks by Simon and mutters something. Sounds like he's calling Simon a hack or something for getting Kaylee p.o'd again. It's not on subs or in the scripts. Anyways, just wondering if anyone else heard it.

"That's the buffet table....."

I should really learn to pay attention. On my gazillionth viewing of bushwhacked, I finally noticed that when Kaylee carefully hands a rather heavy engine part to Simon ... he promptly drops it.

Something completely unimportant, but amusing as hell, in Our Mrs. Reynolds, at the campfire party scene, as the camera pans onto Mal and I think the Amish looking guy, there is a fairly short looking, very drunk guy, playing the air guitar.

Hilarious.

You can see the heart when she places her hands on her hips after Mal says "I don't think there's a power in the 'verse can stop Kaylee from being cheerful".



In other episodes she also has a second pair of overalls (most notably in 'Safe') with a purple mouse on the top left breast pocket.

Kaylee is way cute.
