---> '''Book''': I don't give half a hump if you're innocent or not. So where does that put you?\\

* When Inara pulls the trigger on the Lacetor in "Trash" nothing happens. The pistol is perhaps hundreds of years old and has been kept in a display case. Its power cell has long since lost any charge it was holding.
** Yes, they say that outright in the episode. That's not fridge anything.

* While we don't know the range or limits of River's sensitivity, it's probably not a coincidence that the most lucid we see and hear her act is while she's off Serenity and on-board Jubal Early's ship, ''alone.''

* It doesn't really make sense why Inara would join the crew of Serenity. She's a popular and sought out high-class companion, so she isn't really wanting for clients and there is no real reason why she'd join a ship like Serenity. However, the cast and crew have said in interviews [[spoiler: Inara is suffering from a terminal illness. Knowing she has a limited time left to live]] she probably wants to see as much of the 'verse as possible

* The name ''{{Firefly}}'' itself. This meaning was never intended by anyone, but think about it. The light of a firefly shines brightly for a moment and then [[ScrewedByTheNetwork flickers out of existence]] but that light, that memory of the firefly is fondly remembered. Catching fireflies on a warm summer night... that is the feeling you get when watching ''{{Firefly}}'', especially in the more heartwarming scenes. A Firefly can also symbolize the soul, or that it ferries souls from the land of the living. On a more upbeat note, a firefly encircling people symbolizes affections and attachments that bring them together.

* The [[SpaceIsCold heat problem]] in ''Out of Gas'' is still a problem, but them being "[[SpaceIsAnOcean dead in the water]]" isn't (quite) such a problem. The blast at the beginning of the episode burst out of the cargo bay door... which is located ''under the cockpit''. The burst of air and explodey-ness necessarily took away some of their motion, and if the gravitic drive was completely nonfunctional after the original blast, it could have taken away ''all'' of the remaining motion. A better word would have been "floundering", but if gravitic drives fail closed, they ''could'' have been dead in the water.

** Similarly, the ship being [[SpaceIsCold "cold"]]. Normally, space is a good insulator, as radiating heat is an inefficient way to release heat, so everyone getting progressively colder doesn't seem to make sense. ''Except'' for the fact that the ship is carrying an enormous, heat-generating ''engine''. One of the biggest problems with spacecraft is that they have to vent their heat buildup constantly lest the ship overheat. So Serenity is almost certainly built to radiate away all the heat produced by its engine and crew and other systems. Without a running engine to provide heat, the ship will be radiating a lot of current heat without any more being added... and the interior of the ship will get cold, quick.

** There's a scene where Harken is interrogating Mal, who says that the Reavers were the ones who butchered those people. Harken dismisses the claim and says he can't imagine the number of times that men in his position hear the "Reavers did it" excuse. Reavers have been attacking ships for ten years. The Alliance, despite knowing about the Reavers, has been punishing innocent people for the Reavers' actions for the last decade.

The Alliance, despite knowing about the Reavers, has been punishing innocent people for the Reavers' actions for the last decade. Even worse, they've been ''deliberately lying'' to their ''own military'' about the threats in the outer edges of the systems. Alliance ships being deliberately misinformed about the dangers meant that otherwise-good soldiers and crewmen could have ended up facing an enemy they were completely unprepared to fight.

** You wouldn't think that a MenInBlack organization would have any place in a SpaceOpera, but (stay with me here) we can infer that they are covering up for Blue Sun/ the Academy (however they're connected) and their affairs, including psychic phenomena and the Reavers, who, as far as anyone else knows, might as well be aliens. Classic MIB behavior.
