Loser provides examples of:
- The Bet - We're not told what it is, only that Jayne loses. The story is concerned with the payoff.
- Biggus Dickus - Kaylee is quite impressed by Wash's male endowment, and Zoe cites it as one of her reasons for marrying him.
- Bound and Gagged - Actually, just bound. It was the only way they could make Jayne sit through the entire show.
- Stupid Sexy Flanders - Implied at the end, with Jayne's classic "I'll be in my bunk" line.
- You Can Leave Your Hat On - The basic premise of the story.
