* Snark and opinions aside, Percy mostly sticks to the ancient myths he's recounting. The only time he really goes on about a god's modern-day circumstances is when he talks about Amphritite, a Nereid and wife of Poseidon -- and Percy's stepmother. While Amphritite was rather cold when we glimpsed her in ''The Last Olympian'', Percy takes a moment to give her kudos for not taking out her issues with her husband on his innocent children, and says she doesn't give him a hard time for leaving his clothes on the floor and she even bakes him cookies-- which is "all you can ask of an immortal stepmother."

** Heck, Poseidon in general, especially when he interacts with Percy. Even if he doesn't show up often, what we ''do'' get of him shows that he ''does'' truly care about Percy. [[PetTheDog Somewhere deep inside, some of the gods ''do'' have hearts.]]

* Similar to the above, Argos, the 100-eyed-giant is working at the camp. The same Argos who according to the mythology was tasked by Hera to forever guard her sacred grove, also known as the Garden of the Hesperides. The implication being that Hera, forever described as easy to anger and petty in her (rightful) jealousy, lent the best guardsman she could think of to guard demigods, including those who are the fruit of her husband's cheating.

* Poseidon telling Percy he is proud of him and calling Percy a true son of the god of the sea.
** Related: Percy's only memory of his father before he finds out he's a demigod is Poseidon standing by his crib and smiling at him.
* Percy repeating what he heard Poseidon say about his mom (see below)- to Sally's face, making her blush, and insisting she should break free of Gabe as she deserves better.
* After Annabeth opens up about her family ordeal, Percy advises her to give living with her dad and stepmom one last chance. At the end of the book we see she followed his advice.

** And while we're on Zoe, the fact that she sobs -- [[NotSoStoic literally breaks down and sobs]] -- after [[spoiler:Bianca]]'s death is not to be shrugged off. This girl is over two thousand years old, has had more than her fair share of loss, and has known [[spoiler:Bianca]] for less than a week. But she is a [[TrueCompanions Hunter]], and she trusted Zoe to protect her. And Zoe couldn't, and she mourns her loss as if she'd known her a thousand years.

** And then Percy goes to take the burden, Artemis pleads with him not to, knowing he won't last as log as Annabeth did. And as soon as she's freed she manipulates Atlas into taking his burden again, sparing Percy of further suffering.

* Dionysus is constantly bitching and complaining about being at the Camp because he hates demigods, but he actually gets to spend time and have meaningful interactions with his twin sons Castor and Pollux. We may not see it on-screen, but Dionysus' utter devastation when [[spoiler: Castor dies]] shows he really does love his children.
