* HeroicSacrifice: Seeing that the cabling pulling them up is about to snap, [[spoiler: Randall decides to sacrifice himself to save Jake. ]] Jake is so distraught over this, that he wanted to jump back in to get him, only stopping when the Crew Chief points out that if he did, there was no coming back.
--> '''Crew Chief:''' [[spoiler: If I do, you don't come back! I can't! I can't lose two!"]]
** The alternate ending [[spoiler: makes it apparent that this was a SenselessSacrifice as the cable would've held until the two were at the door of the helicopter.]]



* ShellShockedVeteran: Randall wasn't in a war, but he's still haunted by that disasterous mission.

** This turns out to be the reason why [[spoiler: Randall assigns Jake to Coast Guard Air Station Kodiak.]] Someone with Jakes swimming ability is perfectly suited for the single most dangerous stretch of sea in North America, where dozens of ships are lost each month.
--> '''Randall:''' You have a gift Jake, you're the best swimmer to come through this program hands down by-far, you have a whole record board to prove it. You know what I see when I look at it? I see someone fast enough who's going to get there ''first''. I see someone strong enough who's gonna ''last.'' I see someone who can save a life that maybe no-one else could. You really wanna honor the initials on your arm? Then honor your '''''gift'''''. Save the ones you can Jake, the rest... you gotta let go.

* BadassBoast: Jake makes one after the A-School CO gives his speech. Who then retorts that the record holder was [[RightBehindMe standing at the back of the room.]]
** It wasn't just boasting. [[spoiler: When given a chance to break the records, Jake smashes every single record the school holds.]] Except one. The record for not letting a victim go, which Randall holds... by holding onto a man for 20 minutes, due to a jammed cable, with just finger tips.
--> '''Magie:''' "You break ''that'' record, you give me a call."

* FeelingTheirAge: Randall begins to realize he's becoming more of a liability than an asset on rescue missions, especially when compared to [[TheAce Jake]] who's fresh out of training.
