** Will is frequently likened to the title character of {{Don Quixote}} in ''Theatre/ManOfLaMancha'' for his optimism. Ironically, the show has Will "correct" [=MacKenzie=] that Don Quixote rides a donkey instead of a horse, but Don Quixote does ride a horse. It's his sidekick Sancho Panza who rides the donkey.

** Actually, this is because Don realizes that Maggie loves Jim and he doesn't have to try to be a nice guy for her, which would in fact only make her situation worse.

** To be frank, the psychiatrist is the son of Will's former psychiatrist, who left so many notes on Will that "they need their own filing cabinet", meaning that Will had a lot of sessions before this.

* BreakTheHaughty: Throughout season 3, Hallie has been defending viral media more and more over the "old media" that Jim works for. After [[spoiler:being fired from ACN and]] taking a job with a site with "bonuses for page views," Hallie and Jim enter a tense period, but he tries to be supportive (while still needling her about her writing degrading as it shifts in content). Eventually, this comes to a head in "Contempt" where they have an argument where he lets all of his feelings about her come out. At the very end, he wants Hallie to cut through her philosophical arguments about "digital revolution" and "likes, page views, followers" and honestly ask herself if she believes in the value of what she's writing, as a journalist. This cuts pretty deep.
** It's also pretty haughty of Jim to judge Hallie's position in viral media when it's been irrefutably proven that [[spoiler: ACN's "old media" way doesn't exactly work well either...]].
