The metal "doohickey" is the APU exhaust, which is partially closed(via sliding cover) until the APU is selected. The exhaust door opens as the first step in the start sequence. The only thing in the windows are the open window shades, which are required for landing/take-off. The shadow in the rear window most likely is a seat back.

Quoting Laxinyyz (Reply 6): but looking at this again it really does look like a guy sitting down.
With the small fuselage diameter, I would say that he is laying down.
BTW I have seen showers onboard Business jets, but never a bath tub on a airworthy plane. The only bathtub I have seen in a plane was the cockpit-bathtub in Jo Ann Ussery's Boeing 727.
Yes I mean a real bathtub in a cockpit!!!
Go to Corbis--stock photography and pictures. Search for the name "Jo Ann Ussery". You will get 5 images return.
Have a look at her plane. She is/was one of the very few female airplanehome owners. Regrettably the plane was badly damaged during a transport in the late 90's. So she is back in a normal house.
