* "Not a promise, not an oath, or a malediction or a curse," I said, sounding calm, probably inaudible in the midst of Tagg's screaming. "Inevitable. Wasn't that how she put it? I told them. Warned them." --[[http://parahumans.wordpress.com/2013/05/11/cell-22-4/ Cell 22.4]], spoken while [[spoiler:Taylor Hebert takes down freakin' ''Alexandria'']].

* Taylor's BatmanGambit to prove to the Undersiders she didn't betray them. When Brian asks her why, she tells him to use his powers on her. Brian does so, and in doing so learns that Coil was artificially replicating taylor's powers with technology.

* In [[http://parahumans.wordpress.com/2013/03/26/chrysalis-20-3/ 20.3]], Emma Barnes -- back in town, back at school, and with a brand-new GirlPosse at her back -- steps in Taylor's way and tries to re-establish their old relationship of bully and victim by [[BreakThemByTalking attacking all of Taylor's old vulnerabilities]], climaxing with a claim that her father blames her for causing her mother's death. In the face of which Taylor not merely keeps her cool, but needles Emma so badly that ''Emma'' is left resorting to what by Taylor's scale is a pathetically weak show of violence to try to regain the upper hand. Game. And. Match. When Emma tries to play the "my daddy's a lawyer" card, the principal just says "Than I guess we'll have a great many discussions in the future" before telling her to get the hell out of her office.

* A subtle one in the subsequent interlude: When the PRT are debriefing and watching the news report on what happened, the Director points out that Defiant and Dragon could have contained some of the damage if they'd cut off the press and deleted phone footage of the incident. Defiant, once a man so obsessed with image and glory and looking good that he broke the hero-villain truce to give him an edge against Leviathan, simply says "We won't ignore people's first amendment rights." A ''marvelously'' subtle burn for the PRT that also shows how far Defiant has come.

* In [[http://parahumans.wordpress.com/2013/05/04/cell-22-1/ Cell 22.1]], Director Tagg tries to threaten Dinah Alcott into cooperating. She responds by by stating, "The last thing I want is another arrogant dickface telling me what to do," and telling him his chances of dying painfully within the next 20 years -- about 22.813%. Which leads to...

* In [[http://parahumans.wordpress.com/2013/05/04/cell-22-1/ Cell 22.1]], a casual mention is thrown out that Skitter is rated as a Master 8, Thinker 1. Bear in mind that this is pretty much a 10-point scale. Then Tagg mentions that he's warned all his officers to treat her as two points higher ''across the board''. Brute 2, Mover 2, and so on... and Master 10. When Skitter's on the loose, the PRT are concerned about her. When she surrenders to them, they become ''terrified.''

* The Undersiders direct the Smiurgh to attack a settlement containing the Yangban. There is precisely one civilian fatality, because she was told not to kill anyone and decided to show the Undersiders she wasn't taking orders from them.

** Mannequin's body modifications are so extreme that he is a nine-foot-tall robot with fairly tough armor, an ungodly range of motion and limbs he can launch dozens of feet away, no blind spot to speak of, superhuman strength, and retractable blades absolutely goddamn ''everywhere''. Skitter, armed with only a knife and no stronger or faster than any normal human, fights this abomination for two minutes, ''hand-to-hand''.

** In retrospect, this becomes more awesome. One of the aforementioned thugs helped cause Emma's start of darkness, which in turn led to Taylor becoming Skitter. Taylor indirectly got revenge on one of the people who helped make her life hell and she doesn't even know it.

Taylor holds her own against Sophia, for once being in a position of power over her tormentor. Eventually she manages to persuade Sophia to work for her. Yes.
