This is the True Tale of the Cunning Hat. Or rather, it's a screenshot collection assembled for the edification of cunning hat knitters, and especially for Jade, who knitted me a cunning hat and got me addicted to Firefly. To the best of my knowledge, this is a fair use. Firefly is copyright 2002 by Twentieth Century Fox.

Screencaps were taken from the (originally) unaired Firefly episode "The Message" on the DVD set, using SnapNDrag, a free screenshot program for Mac OS X. Thumbnails were generated with Thumbnailer 1.7. The CSS used to display the images with captions wrapped on the page was taken from A List Apart. Any actual quotes are from the shooting script at TWIZ TV.
