* When Mr. Harms is accused of helping slaves escape the plantation and is about to be arrested, Clotee plans to rescue him by causing enough doubt in the Henleys' minds by making them think that he was ''really'' having an affair with Spicy, another slave girl. She'd given this story to the overseer before, so he chimed in to corroborate it. Then, surprisingly, the Henleys' son, backs them up, despite not being in on the plan. He was grateful to Mr. Harms for teaching him and helping him recover from falling off his horse. As Clotee puts it, the word of two white men is enough to save Mr. Harms, even if one is only a boy. The epilogue shows that he became an abolitionist himself.

* Rafaela, one of Rosalia's employers' daughters, is a frail and sickly young woman. One night, Rosa discovers her crying because of this, figuring her ill health means she will never be courted or marry. Rosalia kindly suggests a few things that will help Rafaela, such as getting more fresh air and eating more. It works, and the two girls become closer despite age and class differences.



* Near the end of the journey to Oregon, Hattie is good and tired of feeling dirty, exhausted, and ugly. So she puts on her best dress and tries to coil her hair on her head like Ma (the best she can do is a long braid). She expects Ma to be upset that she's wearing her best clothes on the trail. Instead, Ma simply touches Hattie's cheek and quietly comments on how pretty she looks.

---> I cried from beginning to end. I don't usually cry at movies. I don't know what came over me. Lately I feel real sensitive, and the movie made me think about how much I care about my family. Even [[ManlyTears An]][[AloofBigBrother dy]] was choked up, you could tell.
