* {{Corpsing}}: While Rachel does plenty of laughing on the show -- Ezra Klein, Chris Hayes, and especially Richard Engel are particularly notable for regularly making her laugh or even collapse into giggles -- it is a ''very'' rare occasion to see her [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PeisOV4FAWw laughing so hard she can't even speak]], which she did at the infamous "shagged by a rare parrot" Creator/StephenFry clip. She called it "the dirtiest Moment of Geek" she'd ever done and noted that she is apparently eight years old. Then kept laughing hysterically.

** Put Rachel and Richard Engel in the same room (or on the same screen... or the same phone line....) and the chances of both of them (adorably) going full-on defense policy wonk increase exponentially.

* BirdsOfAFeather: What's better than getting two foreign policy geeks talking to each other? Doing it ''on camera''. No wonder Rachel and Richard Engel seem to go into their own adorably geeky world whenever they get talking about foreign affairs. (The fact that they blatantly adore each other is just a bonus.)

** She has one with Fox News anchor Shep Smith, mostly because he's only her 'enemy' in that he works for her biggest competition.

* MyFriendsAndZoidberg: Inverted. At one point she described Fox News employing mostly Republican presidential candidates and their patrons, plus "a couple of journalists named Shep Smith and Greta Van Susteren"[[labelnote:*]]Van Susteren is a real-life good friend of Rachel's, despite their differing political opinions. While she and Shep Smith apparently don't spend much time together, they share a mutual warm regard and respect for each other.[[/labelnote]] (thus implying that none of the other hosts were anything of the kind).
