* Lt. Colonel Ray Butts's DyingMomentOfAwesome: Having decoyed a group of EliteMook Chig fighters away from the Wildcards, he gets caught in the pull of a black hole while taking down the enemy fighters. Butts, [[ObiWanMoment knowing there was no way out]], [[FaceDeathWithDignity decided to cue up]] a Music/JohnnyCash song so that the time dilation of the black hole would cause the song to play forever for him.

* "[[ShoutOut In space, no one can hear you scream]], ''unless'' it is the battle cry of a [[SemperFi UNITED STATES MARINE!]]" is something told to Wang at boot camp by none other than [[Creator/RLeeErmey Gunnery Sergeant R. Lee Ermey]] himself at the beginning of the show. He also tells Wang that his battle cry is pathetic. It became a MeaningfulEcho in the finale, [[spoiler:where Wang lets out a mighty, worthy battle cry during his LastStand and HeroicSacrifice]].

Added DiffLines:

*** Even ''yet more awesome'', he did it with no support from the Saratoga, and with conventional weaponry after Chiggy von Richthofen had already shrugged off a freakin' ''superweapon'' that had been designed solely and specifically to kill him. All while listening to Beethoven's "Funeral March", no less.

** Made even more awesome when you remember that, in order to be considered mission-capable, [=McQueen=] had to have his artificial inner ear removed (he'd had one implanted after being wounded in combat, and the stresses of flying a fighter would cause the implant to explode). So, in the battle against Chiggy von Richthofen, he was flying with absolutely ''no inner ear''!
