** A small one, but when Helga finally realizes that she could use her boots to pay off the clerk to find Hyunh's daughter, she laments how the universe has, yet again, forced her to make a painful choice. [[WhatYouAreInTheDark She still gives the boots away for Arnold's sake, despite the fact that she knows and tells herself that no one would know or care if she had chosen otherwise.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Helga pushing away Olga's attempts of giving her love and attention and telling Olga that she "can't stand" her, to the point where Olga is willing to live in the arctic just so she could be close to Helga, and Helga doesn't even seem to notice much or care, is really disheartening and sad.

* Olga's complete breakdown over getting a B+ in one of her classes. When Helga reveals that she was the one who changed her grade, Olga doesn't get angry with her, even though she has every reason to be considering she was torn up about it for nearly three days straight. Instead, Olga reveals that she isn't as happy and perfect as Helga thinks she is and that she wishes that she was ignored by their parents, much like Helga is.
