* EvenEvilHasStandards/WouldNotHurtAChild: Although they are both criminals and work for the BigBad, both Joe and Graydon make it clear through their body language and overall demeanor that while they're okay with trying to get the magazine back, they aren't going to hurt any kids in order to do it. Graydon in particular, when he sees that Sara has climbed out the skyscraper window and is clinging precariously by her fingertips, is clearly horrified at how much danger she is in and wastes no time trying to save her. To his credit, when he has no other options to get to her ''he climbs out the window himself.''
