Mary Alice finally remembered where she recognized Adam Baldwin from -- Independence Day.
We watched this episode and Eric talked very little and was genuinely into what was happening. I was pleased. (And also excited that he did NOT guess the main plot twist, as in earlier episodes he had a habit of guessing almost all of the plot twists.) He also said he loves the girl mechanic (Kaylee) -- might even have said she's his favorite. He's still not a fan of Mal or Jayne, though.
Jayne's kissing line got the reactions I expected: an ew from Eric (I also totally watched his face during Saffron's Bible speech, which was awesome) and an approving mmm from Mary Alice (though she was thinking neck while Eric and I were totally thinking... other orifice).
I was also entertained that very early on Mary Alice commented that she's very pretty, because I never particularly thought that. I mean, I can see it, but I have to actually be making an effort.)
Oh, and bestest thing I forgot to mention: Eric said he was going to watch Firefly last night but it felt like it would be cheating on us, so he didn't.
