I think that, even though it ends on a serious note, that this was one episode that could be considered a comedy.
Jayne, Kaylee-Simon, Book-River were all played strictly for humor for most of the show.
You also got to hand it to Joss. Don't forget that this is a man who taught himself how to play music in six months so he could write the Buffy musical. He also wrote the theme song to Firefly and the laugh-outloud "Jayne's Song."
I didn't know that! I assumed he had some background in music. Bloomin 'eck!
Out of all the funny moments in this episode, I still get a belly laugh out of the Book/River/hair moment.
