-->''"Let me tell you how it is. [[IntrepidReporter You gather the evidence and write stories]]. That's what you do. That's your job. I'm an editor. That means I do '''everything else'''. I get you paid. I move your work to all the places it needs to be. I used to pay your rent. I deal with the complaints and the edicts from above and keep you mollified and all the other bullshit. I get the work out of you and I wipe your ass and keep your nose clean. You write the stories and I do every other damn thing there is to do. And you know why? It's because you only know how to write, and I've had to learn to do everything else."''

* Even Spider's mafia-made [[MatterReplicator maker]] gets one at the end of Gouge Away. While Spider & The Filthy Assistants are going into hiding, the Godti Maker is left behind, hopped up on "baaaad mecha drugs" with a revenge mechanism it programmed into itself.

---> Hello. I am Oscar Rossini, noted city philanthropist, a supporter of the party in government, active on a dozen political committees and a substantial donor of financial gifts. I have no criminal record, several awards, three of which were given to me by presidents, and a medal. I am also, finally, a television star. I'd like it if you could arrest me now. Because it will ensure that in a week's time you will be in a most unpleasant prison with the mutant erection of a career dog rapist deep in your colon.

* Spider Jerusalem learning [[spoiler: he has about a year until his brain completely degenerates]]. He takes a minute to feel overwhelmed by the news, then pulls himself together and, with his characteristic [[SlasherSmile grin]], promises to get the job done in that time.

* Oscar Rossini, Yelena's dad, staying behind to cover Spider and co.'s escape from his mansion when the soldiers arrive. More specifically, his little speech when he steps out the front door to be arrested (all said while staring down the barrel of a big damn gun).

* The entire ''Media'' of The City gets one during the final arc when they decide to grow a spine and broadcast footage from Washington during Martial Law. This moment is particularly awesome:
-->'''Newsreader:''' Citywide, News on The Hour. First, we have something to show you. Bring the camera around Bob...
