"Bishop is safe on F3." This was not true. The knight would have taken the bishop after it was moved to F3. Given the way the board was setup, there were in fact no safe spaces for the bishop. This is an especially unfortunate mistake given the metaphor expressed in the scene was that they could all find safe spaces in life if they planned well.
The credits are displayed initially with images from the film and of the characters and events beside/ behind them. This then changes to a music clip of "#1 Spice" by Young Cardamom And Hab (from the soundtrack) being shown to the left of the credits. The clip continues until the end of the credits.
