* In "Honor and Compromise", George Washington marches into the Battle of Monmouth just in time to find General Lee's troops in retreat, and immediately rips into the pompous officer for jeopardizing the entire engagement. When Lee refuses to back down, insulting Washington and even worse, ''insulting his troops'', Washington immediately ejects him from the field and rallies his men, as James and Henri look on in nothing less but pure amazement.

* Let's consider how Sara was first introduced in the very first episode of the show-- calmly writing a letter to her mother in the midst of a ferocious storm at sea, even while the lantern over her head is swinging back and forth dangerously and her inkwell is sliding across the table. Screw the storm, she's got a letter to write.

Talk about the [=CMOAs=] of ''WesternAnimation/LibertysKids'' here.

* The "give me liberty or give me death" speech was a RealLife one for Patrick Henry of course but the passion with which Michael Douglas plays it makes it one for him as well.
