After solving a crisis, Alyssa asks when Reed will admit "we married the wrong people," noting her husband is smart but no real passion while Sue, Johnny and Ben just aren't as smart as Reed and asks why would he waste time with someone "you have to dumb down to talk to and their eyes glaze over when you talk of your passions." In other words, Alyssa is asking why Reed stays with Sue whens he's not his intellectual equal. Reed shuts Alyssa up with his simple, beautifully matter of fact reply:

-->'''Reed''': Because I love her. Or is that something you can't work out on a calculator?

** Then she kisses him. Awww!

** Reed comes across a jumper and instead of tritely getting him off the ledge, stretches up and has a conversation. The guy's wife left him, he's got terminal cancer, and his son died in a car crash. He's going to jump because he's got no one left. Reed gives him his personal number and tells him to call when it gets to the worst; Reed will sit with him as he passes so he's not alone. Later in the series, Reed ''walks out of an Illuminati meeting'' to uphold his promise. It's a low-key rebuttal to some criticisms of Reed and his cold, hard logic, and it must be seen to be appreciated [[here http://imgur.com/gallery/jelby]].
