* When the mythbusters are testing a car hood-mounted machine gun, Adam is skeptical. He doesn't think that the fixed machine gun seen in the movies will be able to hit anything (he has better hopes for a moveable one, though). And for the first part of the test, it performs exactly as he expects. And then he discovers that he can use the car's controls to 'steer', using the brakes to aim up or down. He starts ''nailing'' Jamie after that, and the moveable gun performs even better.

* Movie and TV-based myths are usually pretty unrealistic, but all of the IndianaJones myths they tested got at ''least'' a "plasuable". Adam finally managing using a whip to swing over a chasm was especially epic.

* In the show's final episode, the Mythbusters decide to give Buster the Mythbusters equivalent of a VikingFuneral: Dress him up as a super hero, put him on a rocket sled, and fire him into a wall at 800 miles per hour. The highspeed footage shows Buster disintegrating on impact. Or rather, ascending into Valhalla.

Before they reviewed the highspeed, it looked for a minute like we were headed into NeverFoundTheBody territory.

** And let's not forget the buildup to Adam's official plow down Mythbuster Memory Lane: Adam slowly building up to speed in the Ultra Wedge Truck as the opening to ''[[{{Music/Europe}} The Final Countdown]]'' plays proudly and dramatically. Longtime fans likely got chills up their spine as the truck got ready, and this Troper actually sang and played along as the song built up. Too bad it didn't play through the whole sequence...

* Adam, after going through a week-long Air Force training program, got to fly in a ''U2 plane 70,000 ft above the earth''. (Jamie also qualified, but let Adam go because he wanted it more.) The only people higher than them at that point are on the Space Station. Additionally, the view from the plane was absolutely ''stunning''; they were high enough for the curvature of the Earth to be easily visible, and the sky above was extremely dark because so much of the atmosphere was below them.
