* SexBot: Mr. Universe has one. Turns out to be useful for other things, too, like messages.

* SexBot: Mr. Universe has one. Turns out to be useful for other things, too, like messages. It's not entirely clear why they call it this, since it never moves on it's own and appears to just be a doll.

** Ditto for Miranda, which works either as a reference to Shakespeare's ''Theatre/TheTempest'' ('O brave new world that has such people in't'); this quote is the inspiration for the title of Aldous Huxley's novel ''Literature/BraveNewWorld'', wherein the dystopian totalitarian state uses drugs to pacify the (genetically engineered) people. It's also one to ''Film/PicnicAtHangingRock'' (in which Miranda is the name of a girl who disappears).

** Ditto for Miranda, which works either as "Miranda" is a reference to character in Shakespeare's ''Theatre/TheTempest'' ('O who famously says "O brave new world that has such people in't'); in't" upon seeing people from outside her sheltered island existence; this quote in turn is the inspiration for the title of Aldous Huxley's novel ''Literature/BraveNewWorld'', wherein the dystopian totalitarian state uses drugs to pacify the (genetically engineered) people. It's also one to ''Film/PicnicAtHangingRock'' (in which Miranda is the name of a girl who disappears).A complex multi-layered reference.

** Ditto for Miranda, which works either as an ironic reference to Shakespeare's ''Theatre/TheTempest'' ('O brave new world that has such people in't') or a more direct one to ''Film/PicnicAtHangingRock'' (in which Miranda is the name of a girl who disappears).

* {{Retcon}}: In the series' pilot, Simon said that an underground group smuggled River out of the academy in the box. The film shows it was Simon himself that did the job.

* HaveANiceDeath: The Operative usually offers one of these.

* HaveANiceDeath: The Operative usually offers one of these. He's not being insincere or mocking when he does this, since he's pretty big on the "honorable death" thing.

* WouldHurtAChild: The Operative is not above killing children, as he flat out informs Mal. As proof of this, when the characters arrive at Haven, Kaylee (the crew's most soft-hearted member) comes across a dead little boy about 10 years old (one whom she was briefly seen interacting with affectionately, earlier in the film). The Operative is aware that this is his MoralEventHorizon, but argues these deeds as being NecessaryEvil.
-->'''Capt. Malcolm Reynolds''': I don't murder children.
-->'''The Operative''': I do. If I have to.
