I'm amused by Inara's line about "hundreds of fat children". This brings to mind the Whedon-scripted Buffy episode Amends, where the First (as the ghost of one of Angel's victims) says to Angel "I wanna die in bed surrounded by fat grandchildren, but guess that's off the menu". I guess that he's hearkening back to times when being a little bit chubby was considered a good and even attractive thing, as it was a sign of success.
isn't it a chinese blessing? that would go with the general chinese motif in firefly (especially the swearing ).
