No. We only need the latter; the former is not really a proper usage of the namespace.

Can the link go to the cut list?

To the guy who removed the Shoot the Rope edit:

I just saw the movie a couple days ago, and Mal did indeed shoot at the rope three times: He missed the first two times, then the reaver ship fired a sawblade-like thing that whizzed past Mal's head, and then he snap-turned back towards Jayne with that 'annoyed look' on his face, and then successfully shot the rope, while not even aiming (he shot as soon as he turned while the first two shots were aimed). He did nearly the same thing in the series (though I will admit he wasn't shooting and missing the horse, but still) — he got grazed in the arm and then snap-turned (in nearly the same way) with the same look on his face, and pulled a quickshot and hit the horse perfectly, killing it instantly (probably hitting it in the heart — otherwise it probably would have ran off).

I'm not saying it didn't happen, I meant I didn't see any pattern or relevance. The scene from the series did not show him missing the horse, getting anoyed and then becoming more accurate, it showed him doing a lot of shooting at a lot of stuff, being annoyed and then deciding to shoot the hore. Also, we don't know that it was a "perfect" shot in the heart; he might have gotten it in the head, perhaps a critical artery, mabe it had already been wounded and this was the final wound, etc.

Thee are vague similarities (He got annoyed and shot something), but it's not a pattern or signature move.

Well, it does play into the idea that Mal is a crack shot when it matters. The series has a few instances where he makes a really tough shot in a quick draw, like when he shoots Dobson, in the face, while he's got River as a human shield, without even slowing down.

Just a thought, this article needs to get scrubbed to either remove or transplant the stuff that only applies to the show. I'll probably do that this weekend.

This is a continual battle for the article.

Perhaps it should be folded into the show?
