Where is the hat?

This is Chapter 1 of the True Tale of the Cunning Hat, 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.
