Trivia

Inara asks whether a carved wooden statuette in a trading post is supposed to be a duck, and Kaylee replies that it's a swan. There is a Chinese proverb that says, "A badly painted tiger looks like a dog; a badly carved swan looks like a duck." (The meaning of the proverb is that it's better not to do certain things than to do them badly.) See more »

Quotes

River: Little soul, big world. Eat, sleep, and eat. Many souls.
Mal: Cattle on the ship three weeks, she don't go near 'em. Suddenly we're on Jianying, and she's got a driving need to commune with the beasts?
River: They weren't cows inside. They were waiting to be, but they forgot. Now they see sky, and they remember what they are.
Mal: Is it bad that what she said made perfect sense to me?

Shindig part 2
31 December 2006 | by (Albuquerque New Mexico USA) – See all my reviews

You must watch Shindig first since the cargo their carring is from that episode. Can still pick up what's going on even if you don't. The crew now with a job carring the cargo to a backwater planet to make some quick cash from settlers. Seems OK at first and somewhat relaxing but then the men they deal with our wanted fugitives. The law pounces on the crew and fugies. In the chaos of a gunfight between the law and criminals our beloved Shepherd Book is shot in the chest. Bleeding to death Mal the captain of Serenity makes a descision to leave atmo to save his life. While everything was fine at first the Doc and his little sister River go to town. Hanging out at a country dance they are kidnapped by hill folk. They are now took to a mountain town. With Serenity and crew out in the black to save the Shepherd it seems the Tams are forgotten but Mal keeps his word and saves the day. The term Big Damn Heroes comes from this episode as well as finding Shepherd Book has influence with the Alliance. Now Book shows he has a mysterious past that puzzles the crew.
