* FourthDateMarriage: Although Wilberforce and Barbara initially have no interest in each other, they bond over their common desire to see the slave trade ended.

* NotSoStoic: Wilberforce keeps his own disappointment and bitterness to himself, but finally bursts after a conversation with Barbara reminds him of everything that's been done to advance the abolition movement, to still no avail.

-->'''William Wilberforce:''' And still.
-->'''Barbara Spooner:''' And still?
-->'''William Wilberforce:''' And still, after all the badges, the petitions, all the speeches and bills, ships full of human souls sail around the world as cargo!
