* Huey goes to extreme lengths just to save one person from death row, only to be thwarted by his own situation and Granddad's apathy. Huey begins to cry and pray for some sort of divine intervention. This is especially poignant since it's the one and only time we see Huey cry and, up to that point, he has been portrayed as an atheist. Even through his hard, mature exterior, Huey is still a kid and never is that clearer than this moment.

** And then [[GodIsGood apparently answers Huey's prayer]] while at the same time helping Grandad, by summoning a bolt of lightning that strikes Uncle Ruckus and causes a blackout, which gives the governor enough time to have the prisoner's sentence commuted.

It turns out that Granddad couldn't help Huey only because he wanted to stop Ruckus and talk some sense into him. Despite everything that Ruckus is, and stands for, Granddad still saw it as his responsibility to help him:

[[AC:...Or Die Trying]]
* Throughout the entire episode, Huey bluntly made his dislike for watching [[ShowWithinAShow Soul Plane 2]] clear, and it was one of the main reasons why he went to destroy the movie reel. But when he saw his Granddad practically hold Jazmine hostage so that she wouldn't snitch about them sneaking into the theater, that was the exact moment Huey decided to put his plan into action.

** Although Robert and Stinkmeaner don't become friends (Stinkmeaner is still fairly annoying), at least they aren't really enemies either anymore.
