Anyways this was an awesome opening scene that I saw in my dream this weekend. Hubby laughed when I told him.
set: dining room
River is going nuts, making loud noises while banging through the pots and pans, food containers and dishes. Muttering things like "where are they? I need to find them"
The crew comes in and someone (probably Mal) asks her what she is doing. she doesn't stop but answers "I am looking for the children"
Someone answers that "there are no children on the ship"
She is still looking in the creamer dish, being crazy as always. Some of the crew are trying to put things back together.
Then a baby cries off screen. River has a look of "I told you so" on her face. Zoe instinctively says "Wash, go get the baby" Wash instinctively heads out of the room, all seems normal. He gets to the doorway, stops turns around with a shocked/puzzled look on his face. At about the same time everyone but River and especially Zoe and Wash says "BABY?!" River seems to think this is all normal.
