** It wasn't because Adam was too scared, it was because the bungee jumping triggered his (legendary) motion sickness. Jamie may not like heights, but they weren't making him physically ill the way they did for Adam.

** This troper's personal pick for the most awe-inspiring thing they've ever done, Non-Explosion Division. The gargantuan nature of the build, the simplicity of the concept, the utter totality of the experiment's effectiveness... as the boys themselves point out, it's absolutely stunning that we haven't seen it used before or since (to my knowledge, anyway) in a Hollywood action movie, or even in ''[[NightmareFuel real life]]''.

** The only thing missing from the Cement Truck explosion? A high-speed shot, because the camera malfunctioned at the worst possible time. Did that stop our heroes? [[spoiler:Heck no! Coming in the final season: ''[[MadeofExplodium Cement Truck 2]]''.]]

* The Cement Truck incident is their Crowning Moment of Explodiness. Oh noes! You can't dislodge the dried concrete with a cherry bomb? How about an M-80? How about a ''pound'' of black powder (which, as it turns out, is effective at removing the normal slag that builds up over time)? How about ''packing the cement truck to the brim with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ANFO ANFO]], clearing the area within a 5-mile radius, and '''frakking VAPORIZING it?!''''' WIN!
