At the end of "Stray Dog Strut" in the English Dub, Wendee Lee gives a voice over prelude to this episode. During this voice over you can hear a man's voice saying "I don't know just get a tea or something." It is easy to miss if you're listening to it over speakers (due to the loud music and Wendee Lee's voice) but if you're wearing a headset/headphones it can be heard very distinctly. See more »
In the third episode of Cowboy Bebop, we meet the woman who will become the third member of the bounty hunting crew: Faye Valentine.
She's got a mysterious past, immense debts, and is wanted for 6 millions woolongs. She is so deep in debt, a casino owner forces her to work the blackjack tables and pull off an illegal exchange involving a chip that has, well, a very valuable (micro)chip inside it.
Although the whole setup that leads Faye to getting captured by Spike and Jet is a little far fetched in how it unfolds, it's still very entertaining, very funny, and it provides a great introduction to Faye as a character, whose backstory becomes a major part of the story's plot.
