Firefly 5 – Safe

Kiyan, as soon as we finish: Why the hell was this episode titled “Safe” anyway?

1:09:05: The only citations I could find for there being a Chinese proverb about badly carved swans is, amazingly, Firefly. But I did find the first half of the proverb in a slightly different form, that is, “He painted a tiger, but it turned out a dog” although even that is unsourced. Make of this what you will.
