** Despite everything the world had to throw at her, from disease, racial remarks, the loss of her husband and dear mother '''on the same day''', the loss of her hotel in the fire that ravaged Kingstown, she never conceded defeat. Despite the war department and the nurses of London refusing to send her over to Crimea to assist the sick and injured soldiers, she never conceded defeat. In short, she was TheDeterminator personified. No matter what happened, shit was going to get done.

* During a mini-episode where Dan was recording without James, he eventually decided to man up and take on Havel the Rock as many times as necessary until he won (prodded by comments from viewers telling him he'd get a super-awesome ring for doing so). He expected he was going to die and die and die again, and indeed the first time he tried he messed up and [[OneHitKill Havel predictably squashed him with his first attack]]. But when he went back for his second go, he killed Havel easily, making the entire sub-episode video a mere 6 minutes long! This was arguably the point where Dan first really [[MemeticMutation "got gud"]] at ''Dark Souls.''
