* Trish's raw, emotional jury speech where she digs into Tony, asking him if the million was worth it if he had to lie on his dead relatives. Unlike other speeches, the emotion was raw and organic, and Tony owned his gameplay with his answer.

** Let's give props to Joe. He's the oldest contestant since Rudy from Borneo/All-Stars, and these later seasons usually have the older contestants eliminated first. Not Joe. The fact he managed to make it all the way to top five, outlasting thirteen younger players in what's called ''the most punishing season yet'', and even managing to win a challenge all by himself, is really something to admire.

While he was underedited and has received some flak for his [[UndyingLoyalty gameplay]], he got what he wanted, a challenging adventure.

* Despite his age, Joe managed to win the Episode 12 reward challenge after everyone else was out of the challenge. [[spoiler: Too bad that the food he ate led to his eventual evacuation.]]

** How badass was Rudy? ''He immediately applied for season 2.'' He eventually would return in All Stars, setting the record for oldest castaway at the age of ''75.''

Added DiffLines:

* The immunity challenge of the penultimate episode has the final five go on a Blair Witch style hunt. Before the hunt, they're told several legends from the culture of Borneo, along with a mysterious circumstance that had been occurring at Tribal Council since the merger: ''during the voting, the torch of the castaway that was going to be voted out was extinguished by the wind'', forcing the production crew to relight it so it could be snuffed out. At that night's Tribal, Sean is voted out, and when he goes to grab his torch, sure enough, ''the wind had already extinguished it.''
-->'''Jeff''': The tribe has spoken, ''the jungle has spoken.''

Added DiffLines:

* The ''very first episode'' starts off with one. The castaways arrive at Samoa via airlift from the New Zealand Air Force. The Heroes arrive first and get a chance to do a PowerWalk to the beach. Then the Villains arrive, do their own PowerWalk, ''while their helicopters blow sand into the faces of the Heroes.''
** They're then thrown immediately into the first challenge, which involves fighting over a buried bag. The animosity between the two sides is palpable, and makes for some incredibly brutal combat. Then two of the Heroes, Stephenie and Rupert, suffered the earliest injuries ''ever'' in the history of the show (with a dislocated shoulder and broken toe, respectively). And ''the Heroes still won.'' This was the moment that told you this season was going to be badass.

* Gervase was one of the first people to recognize the Tagi alliance, to the extent that he started going to tribal council wearing a shirt that had a bulls-eye made of duct tape on it. When he realized he was about to become the next one to be voted out, he decided to go out with a BadassBoast that even impressed Mark Burnett.
-->'''Gervase''': Theyíd ''better'' vote me off. Gervase learned long ago that the only person responsible for Gervase is Gervase. If they donít vote me off tonight I will win this game. I will win every Immunity Challenge, and get rid of them one by one. If they donít vote me off, I will win the million. I will make them pay for this mistake. Thatís all I got to say. Donít make the mistake of keeping me around because '''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis I. Will. Beat. Your. Ass.]]'''
* Susan Hawk set the bar for [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech scathing jury comments]] with her [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aBSMBfoMVHk "snakes and rat"]] speech, which is still quoted today by Survivor fans.
-->'''Susan''': I plead to the jury tonight to think a little bit of the island we have been on. This island is full of, pretty much, only two things - snakes and rats. And in the end of Mother Nature, we have Richard The Snake, who knowingly went after prey; and Kelly, who turned into the rat that ran around like rats do on this island, trying to run from the snake. I believe we owe it to the island spirits we have come to know to let it end in the way that Mother Nature intended: For the snake to eat the rat.
