*** Upon getting the angst out of his system with the above line, Goliath just slumps down onto his knees, as if he really has no idea what he can do now.

* Angela in "The Journey" when she laments about the racism towards Gargoyles. She was in tears as to why the people hate them all so much, which was a far cry from her upbringing on Avalon, where she was raised by humans.



* In "Generations", Angela was the only one willing to give Demona a chance to prove herself when the rest of the Clan refused to trust her, for GOOD reason. When Goliath gets captured by a stealth hunter, Demona leads a charge to rescue him. However, at the climax, he revealed the truth; he was actually HIRED by Demona to set the whole scene up in order to get in good with the Clan at the expense of Goliath's life. Angela was was shocked, hurt, and angry with Demona's betrayal of her trust, especially with her LameExcuse of why she did it, was to "save her from Goliath". Angela could only cry in anger and disappointment at how she was used by her own mother and that her efforts to reconnect with her were all for naught.

--> '''Angela''': You USED me!
--> '''Demona''': ( caresses Angela's face) It... Started out that way... But now... I wouldn't hurt you for the world.
--> '''Angela''': (angrily slaps away Demona's hand while crying angry tears) Save it for your next performance, Demona! (Walks away betrayed and crying in disappointment)

** Brutally averted as she immediately went back into her NeverMyFault mentality.

** Hudson on WhoWantsToLiveForever:
--->"Listen to me, Xanatos. What you seek demands a heavy price. I've lived 1,100 years. Most of my clan is dead and dust, and I'm a stranger in a strange land. Demona and [=MacBeth=] are immortal. Has it brought them happiness?"


Added DiffLines:

* "The Mirror" ends with the characters returned to normal, but the clan's final scene has some major MoodWhiplash.
-->'''Goliath:''' Elisa, I--\\
'''Elisa:''' I know. You're relieved as I am that things are back to normal.\\
'''Goliath:''' That's not what I was going to say. ''[turns to stone]''\\
'''Elisa:''' ''[placing her hand on his face]'' I know, but that's the way it is.

** Goliath pretty much sums up his day with the line; "I've been denied everything! '''''EVEN MY REVEEEEEENGE!!!'''''"
* In "Awakening Part 2", Goliath asks the Magus to cast his spell one last time, to turn Goliath to stone alongside the rest of his clan, to wait for the day when they might wake up. On initial viewings, this might be seen as a heartwarming moment. But WordOfGod states that it isn't- Goliath's grief is so great, he's essentially committing suicide. At that point, there is no way for the spell to ever be broken. Goliath is choosing oblivion rather than be alone.
* The relationship between Goliath and Demona. When flashbacks show their younger selves, it is very obvious that they were in love and were enjoying the happiest days of their lives. However, as the flashbacks progress and the couple ages, one can see how the relationship is slowly crumbling apart due to Goliath and Demona's conflicting views about humanity. By the time the flashbacks end, one can see that the two of them are no longer the same idealistic gargoyles that loved each other. Instead of that, they are each other's worst enemy. Demona doesn't hesitate in attacking Goliath, trying to kill him, enslaving him with magic, or trying to ruin his life. Similarly, Goliath treats her with greater hostility than most of his other antagonists, showing that even he knows that there is no reasoning with her.
** Perhaps the most tragic example is in "Vows" where Xanatos' wedding convinces Goliath to attend to it because it reminded him of how he andDemona made their own vows of eternal love. He goes to the wedding, probably intending to reconcile with her. Things go downhill when he brings the half of an amulet that Demona gaves him when they made their vows, as the completed amulet can make the user travel in time. Demona uses this occasion to warn her younger self about the destruction of her clan, but ends up disgusting her thanks to her new personality. By the time Demona is restrained, Goliath attempts to give her past self advice to comfort her over the horrible future ahead of her. Once Goliath returns, Demona awakens and reveals that she remembered the advice that he gave her past self but doesn't care about them. The end of the episode has Goliath reminiscing about the love he and Demona shared but can never have again.
*** The differerences between Demona's feelings for Goliath can be seen when she and her past self interact with each other. For example, when both versions of Demona travel in time with Goliath, they both have opposite reactions when they see him on the ground: !Past Demona wants to help him but Demona runs to the recovering Goliath...[[KickThemWhileTheyAreDown and kicks him right in the face, knocking him unconscious.]] It borders on NightmareFuel for !Past Demona. Imagine watching your significant other be callously hurt by none other than yourself. Poor Goliath barely lifted his head before Demona's foot caught him on the chin rather than have her extend her hand to help him.
* Near the end of "Reawakening", Coldstone not only has a change of heart, saving Goliath from the frigid New York waters, but is [[DisneyDeath seemingly killed]] shielding his rookery brother from his own rookery sister. [[spoiler: Thankfully he shows up alive later, [[NightmareFuel if 'alive' is the word]]...]]
* Near the end of "The Price" "Macbeth" blasts [[spoiler: the fake]] Hudson's statue. Goliath has a totally understandable freak out and later grieves for his oldest friend. [[spoiler: Thankfully this becomes a happy tearjerker when the real Hudson arrives alive and well.]]

*** Not to mention Derek trying desperately to hide his true identity from Elisa, establishing the ongoing subplot. [[spoiler: He slips almost immediately, and she realizes exactly who he is.]]
*** It's also the only episode which ever succeeded in making this troper outright ''hate'' [[spoiler: Xanatos]] and wish for his head on a pike.
