But why stop with just one punch? It turns out that, though everybody else in the bar was completely ignoring Opening Conflict Guy, suddenly they're all big Alliance supporters. Captain Johnny mutters something in Chinese while Sydney's Nemesis finally calls Adam Baldwin by his character's name -- Jayne -- when she asks him for help. I'd make fun of the character's name, but it's Adam Baldwin, and we've already established that whole thing. Jayne remains at the table and nonchalantly points out that he didn't fight in the war and wishes the both of them luck.
Then we cut to Captain Johnny getting tossed through the window of the bar into the dirt outside. Now, when I say tossed "through" the window, what I mean is that he goes through the window without anything breaking. That's because the window is a hologram. That's right -- somebody went to the effort of developing a holographic device to mimic something that's completely transparent. Don't think about it too much or your head might explode. If this is an indication of how these people prioritize their expenses, I think we might have hit upon the real reason they're all so poor. As Captain Johnny picks himself up off the ground, he pulls out a communicator and tells somebody with the improbable name of "Wash" that they've encountered some "local color" and could use a "grand entrance." Well, a decent bath might cheer these folks up, but I'm guessing Wash's name isn't meant to be taken literally.
