* The last quote of "A Lighthouse in the Sea of Time". Just the way that it's read and ''written'' gets across the episode's literacy aesop perfectly.

*** When Hudson is about to be dunked in the cauldron and Xanatos claims he's helpless without his sword. Hudson responds "Swordless maybe, but helpless ''never''!" and then stabs a Steel Clan guard with a shard from his own skin, then jumping on the rim of the cauldron, tackling Xanatos to get his sword and then immediately making the charging Owen Burnett back off with a condescending "Behave yourself, boy!"

** As a Scottish noblewoman of the tenth century she had never seen, let alone handled, any kind of modern weaponry before the Archmage's minions attacked and Demona is a heck of a StarterVillain but maternal instinct is a great motivator.

** Hudson's {{Determinator}}-like qualities are best shown in his response to Goliath's point that he can't face Demona (who at this stage has a ''laser rifle''). His response? "Oh, I can face her. I just can't ''beat'' her." On paper, it sounds dull, but trust me.

* "The Silver Falcon" gives one to Broadway when he awakes from his stone slumber, finds that everyone is gone, and (because he is still semi-literate) can barely read the discarded note that is the only clue as to where they went. ''And he does!''

* "Heritage" gave one to Bronx when he saves Elisa from a bear and, after a brief scuffle, '''sends it running.''' Even if he doesn't get much screen-time compared to the other Gargoyles, it still shows that Bronx is a capable fighter on his own.

-->"The written word is all that stands between memory and oblivion. Without books as our anchors, we are cast adrift, neither teaching nor learning. They are windows on the past, mirrors on the present, and prisms reflecting all possible futures. Books are lighthouses, erected in the dark sea of time."

** ''The Price'' was another long CMOA for Hudson. Xanatos captures him, expecting him to be exactly like the younger gargoyles, and starts trying to manipulate him. Only for Hudson to slam the door on his face with an ArmorPiercingQuestion, causing Xanatos to snap for the first time in series. Then he outgambits him (see below). To crown it all, when Xanatos loses, he supposes that Hudson will destroy the Cauldron now. Hudson leaves him to it, and hands out another ArmorPiercingQuestion on the way out. Xanatos is visibly disturbed by this. Basically, the entire episode is Xanatos trying to be his usual MagnificentBastard self, and Hudson deconstructing him and getting under his skin in a way that no other character had been able to do.

** Another Lexington moment is that scene in "Leader of the Pack" where a huge hole is shot through Coyote, and we see Lex through the hole holding a big ass gun, asking "Who's next?"

* "Possession has a slew of CMOA's for characters, especially ones who normally don't receive one (I.E. ''[[spoiler:Lexington's rather epic {{plan}} at the end]]'', the fact that Xanatos's still-infant child finally TookALevelInBadass, to a ridiculous extreme, Coldstone's (as well as the other {{Cyborg}} gargoyle's alliances drawn permanently), and Puck going from chaotic to true neutral at the end, [[spoiler: actually helping the FiveManBand out for a change]] is rather epic.
* "Oh, and another thing... STOP CALLING ME ANGIE!"
** ''Turf'' in general was one long CMOA for Angela. Any other story with multiple male characters fighting over one female would have her throw out a token, ineffective "Stop! I'm not worth it!" but otherwise stand by helplessly and wait to be claimed by the winner. Not Angela. After putting up with their bickering for most of the night, she finally gets fed up and tells them she is not some kind of trophy, they need to grow up and focus on stopping the turf war rather than on their own petty squabbles, and "The winner does not get to keep me!" And that is awesome.
