Well, as we all know, Cowboy Bebop is filled with references.
I was watching the movie yesterday, and I noticed something which I thought *might* be a reference.

Just before he kills Lee, Vincent says 'When the game is over, there is only one left' (Or something along those lines).
Skipping forward to the veeery end of the credits, just before we see Spike, it shows Vincent's marble game. Anyone who has played it would know that there aren't any legal moves left on the game shown.
So, the game's over (as is Vincent's life), and there's 6 marbles remaining. Do you think those 6 marbles could represent each member of Bebop plus Electra?

Sorry if this has been bought up somewhere before, or pointed out on a website. I just noticed it yesterday, thought I'd share it.

I'd say that's a neat little piece of symbolism, now that you mention it.

Good observation. It could represent that. Smile

How do you people notice these things!! I must have seen the movie almost a dozen times and I never connected that shot to any sort of symbolism. Same goes for the series as well. Maybe I'm just not poetic enough?

Anyhow, a good find Gaz. Whether or not it was actually meant to represent something is a different story, but based on the many uses of symbolism throughout the series your probably right...
