Added DiffLines:

* In the entire show, all fourteen episodes and the movie, I have never heard Mal sound ''terrified'' until he screams Zoe's name and throws her to the ground before the next harpoon hits. When they make it to the bottleneck and she's telling him to go on, he stops and fumbles and just says, "Are you ''here?"''
** And then the ending:
-->'''Mal:''' You think she'll hold together?
-->'''Zoe:''' She's tore up plenty, but she'll fly true.

* The rebuilding of Serenity in the end. Inara has no technical skills at all, but even she pitches in - as an artist.
* When the Reavers attack the first time, River collapses in a fit. Jayne instantly runs over to her side and asks if she's alright .

* It says a lot that ''the movie itself'' could be considered a meta-example. After responding to the fan petition, Joss Whedon started seeking out a way to make this movie, and Alan Tudyk decided to return a prop he reportedly filched off the ''{{Series/Firefly}}'' set - the BigRedButton used in "Out of Gas", with a note quoting that ep: "when your miracle gets here, hit this button."
* It's easy to miss, but while Serenity is plummeting toward Mr. Universe's planet, Jayne is checking the passengers' seat belts before he gets a chance to strap himself in, including ''River's''. Furthermore, when he starts getting thrown around the room by the ship spinning out of control, [[NiceGirl Kaylee]] calls out to him. They may not always get along, but the crew still care about each other when it counts.

* When Mal is talking to Inara right before she hints that she'll be staying on ''Serenity,'' Mal gently touches the cut on her lip. Yes, they both play it off, but its just like the moment in ''Out Of Gas'' when Mal touches her shoulder: a small gesture that says everything he can't.

* It's easy to miss, but while Serenity is plummeting toward Mr. Universe's planet, Jayne is checking the passengers' seat belts before he gets a chance to strap himself in.
** Including River's! I'm not sure about Simon's, but I do recall seeing him passing by River's belt to make sure it was done in. And if I recall, either River or Inara (I forget who) calls out for Jayne when he starts getting thrown around in the room when the ship is spinning out of control. Neither one of them had any reason to like him whatsoever, but yet they still care about each other when it counts.
** I believe it was Kaylee who called out to him, [[NiceGirl which really makes sense given her character]].
