Trivia

Jayne's favorite gun, Vera, is actually a highly modified Saiga-12 shotgun. The prop gun was custom built by gunsmiths Larry Zanoff and Jim Boland for the film Showtime (2002) before being used on Firefly (2002). Jayne also carries Vera in Firefly: War Stories (2002), but notably does not fire it on camera. See more »

Goofs

Jayne says that his gun ("Vera") needs oxygen around it to fire. The gun is shown with standard projectile rounds which produce all the oxygen they need. The producers were not sure if "Vera" would need oxygen to fire. So they asked a gun expert, who gave them the wrong information, according to commentary on the DVDs. See more »

Quotes

Mal: Do you ever... wash your client's feet?
Inara: [sarcastically] It's my specialty.

An hour of perfect television
17 November 2011 | by (Barcelona, Spain) – See all my reviews

I know it may sound like hyperbole, but no matter how I look at it, I reach the same conclusion: This episode of Firefly is one of the most perfectly constructed pieces of entertainment I have ever seen. It has absolutely everything you could possibly wish for: humour, intrigue, sex, romance, moral dilemmas, action, a neat twist... Moreover, it is a self-contained enough story and so engrossing in itself that even someone watching who is new to the show can still be thoroughly entertained, yet for those who already know the characters, it develops and advances them in subtle but crucial ways. You just couldn't ask for anything more. This should be a blueprint for what every episode in every TV show should strive to be. Firefly was a good show overall, certainly, but this episode alone would more than justify its existence.
