After Simon's gone, Kaylee tells Jayne that he shouldn't be so mean to him. Jayne asks, "Why? Because he's all rich and fancible?" How am I supposed to maintain my love for Adam Baldwin when they make him say things like "fancible"? Kaylee has managed to grab the exposition baton somehow, and explains that the Alliance froze all of Simon's money when he freed his sister and escaped. Jayne snatches the exposition baton from her to point out that they could all get rich if they gave her back -- for a reward, I'm assuming. Kaylee is horrified at the idea. Jayne insists that Mal is thinking about it, because he wouldn't take on a risk like Simon and River if there weren't a potential profit in it. In case you all had forgotten, or had fallen asleep from boredom, we see that River is still sitting up on the catwalk, hearing all this. Jayne puts on a hat with a goofy-looking earflap-chinstrap combination and gives the promo-friendly line, "Time for some thrilling heroics." Don't you mean anti-heroics?
Back on the train, Zoe and Mal get access to the cargo car with a keycard. And, of course, back in the soldier car, one of the men gets up and heads back there for some unidentified reason. Zoe puts a canister in the doorway as Mal heads back to remove part of the roof with a cordless electric screwdriver. Yeah, I don't get that part, but I don't know jack about trains. You'd figure that if they used a crane to load cargo, there would be an actual hatch. And if they didn't use a crane, then why would there be removable panel at all? And if it were an emergency hatch, it certainly wouldn't be screwed on. And why did Scratchy's rib-cage xylophone play two different notes, even though Itchy clearly hit the same rib twice? Zoe searches through the train and finds the two crates that belong to the Alliance. The ship soars along directly above the train, drawing the attention of absolutely nobody.
