* When Kristy's stepfather (of whom she was once very resentful towards) has a heart attack, she tells the 911 operator that "Something is wrong with my father!" It just shows how much Kristy has come to accept Watson as more than just a stepfather, but also a beloved member of her family.

----* In one of the memory books, Claudia talks about how when she was in elementary school, they were assigned an art project in which they were supposed to draw a picture of themselves the way they see themselves. The teacher gave absolutely no guidelines beyond that, so Claudia - being very artistic and a free spirit - drew a butterfly. The teacher and several of her classmates ridiculed her piece, to the point where she went home in tears. Mimi, upon hearing the story, immediately walked her back to the school, found the teacher, and gave her the gentlest but firmest telling-off anyone could ever get. "Claudia sees herself as a free spirit, like a butterfly. So that is what she drew." The teacher later apologized, but by that point Claudia didn't even care; the thing that mattered was that Mimi ''understood her''.
* Another memory book has Mary Anne recalling how, when the class was assigned to make Mother's Day cards, she made one for her father. Kristy made a point of getting in Alan Gray's face when he made fun of Mary Anne for it. In his defense, Alan didn't know that Mary Anne's mother was dead, but that didn't take away from Kristy defending her best friend.

* In ''Jessi's Secret Language'', Jessi is babysitting for Matt Braddock, who is deaf. She introduces Matt to the neighborhood kids, and they start playing baseball. During an argument about a play, Jessi notices that the kids are arguing verbally, and is about to remind them to sign as well so that Matt can follow along, but before she can, the kids themselves ''back up'' and ''start the argument over again'', this time with sign language. Later on, Jessi observes that they've stopped talking entirely, and are just signing instead along with Matt.

* In ''Mary Anne and the Secret in the Attic'', Kristy asks her mom (who was Mary Anne's parents' neighbor at the time) about Mary Anne being sent to live with her grandparents for a time after her mother's death. Elizabeth Brewer recalls that Richard Spier did it because he was overwhelmed by grief, and was overjoyed when he got Mary Anne back. She ran into him pushing her in her stroller, proud as a peacock, asking her, "Look at my baby girl. Isn't she beautiful?"
