--> "Yes, madam," Nell said, turning toward her interlocutor with a little curtsy. Rather than trying to do Chinese etiquette and making a hash of it, she was taking the Victorian route, which worked just as well.

* BadassandChildDuo: Constable Moore and Nell, though they aren't ever in combat together. Their claim to duo-ship lies mainly in that they both suffer from PTSD. Harv and Nell are a much better example of this trope. After he discovers the [[spoiler: ParentalIncest (see below)]], Harv and his gang buddies attack and brutally beat the man responsible.

** The [[{{Holodeck}} ractives]] are a much subtler example. It's explained that the ractive market vastly prefers scenarios where the non-user characters are played by other people rather than AIs, so much so that AI actors are now extremely rare. The implication is that even in this technologically advanced future, it's still quite easy to tell a human from an AI, and the ractives are essentially one big, unintentional Turing Test, one that the AIs consistently fail.
