Sam -- after kicking the rapist in the groin to stun him -- tells Al, "I think I know the reason I'm here", then proceeds to beat the punk within an inch of his life.

* The HalloweenEpisode was mostly just NightmareFuel, but the climax is, when you think about it, pure awesome. Turns out that the "Al" we saw throughout the episode was [[DevilInDisguise actually the Devil]], and he's decided that it's time to off TheHero, and sets to strangling Sam. Sam Beckett, however, decides that he's not going to have that, and [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu chokes the devil into oblivion]]. Repeat, ''[[AddedAlliterativeAppeal Sam strangles Satan]]''.

* In the season two premiere, Al has to defend the importance of Sam's leaping to a government committee, or their funding will be cut off and even if Sam keeps leaping, it'll be without Al's help. He's convinced their only chance is for Sam to create a change in history far bigger than the single lives he's helped, and at the time he's at now, the best chance is to stop the 1960 U2 Incident. Sam ultimately fails, but then [[spoiler:corrects the leapee's love interest on a practice question for getting a law degree, and she realizes that one mistake would have affected so many answers that she would have failed the exam without his help. Suddenly, Al's hearing changes from the announcement that the project is being shut down, to the woman saying it'll be kept running.]]

* In "Killin' Time," Sam leaps into Leon Styles, a serial murderer, who escapes from the Imaging Chamber (and the project as a whole). Eventually, he makes his way back to the project compound-- and runs into Gushie, who's a rather timid, meek guy by nature. Styles demands that Gushie send him back to his own time, to which Gushie replies that it's not possible. Styles response is to point a gun at the base of Gushie's throat and tells him to send him back to his own time or he'll kill him. To which Gushie calmly replies, "Well, you're just gonna have to kill me then."
