Awesome / Adventures in Odyssey

  • In "The Nemesis, Part 2", Whit—who is in his mid-sixties at least—doesn't hesitate to charge into Tom's burning barn to rescue his horses.
  • Whit finally having enough and confronting Curt's smear campaign against Lucy in "It Takes Integrity", a scene that speaks to the kind of person Whit is—grandfatherly and kind, but unafraid of making people uncomfortable to prove a point. A smug Curt has just used a mistake Lucy once made in her reporting against her for the sake of an election, and she believes that the honorable thing to do is drop out. Whit finds Curt and suggests that he's going to give an interview to the Odyssey Owl about Curt's abusive, alcoholic father. Curt protests, and Whit agrees that this would be wrong—which is why Lucy hasn't revealed any of this, nor has she weaponized Curt's other selfish schemes to discredit him.
  • Bernard setting Sam Johnson straight in "When Bad Isn't So Good":
    Bernard: Is that the only reason you wanna do good things—to get noticed?
    Sam: No, I wanna do them because I know it's right. But being right all the time doesn't get me praise from teachers or free ice cream from Whit's End!
    Bernard: So what?
    Sam: Huh?
    Bernard: You heard me; so what? Sam, doing good is its own reward, and I got news for you: it always pays off! Sometimes in ways you can't see—in fact, most times in ways you can't see. But it always does, because doing what's right pleases God! And that's the most important thing, now, isn't it?
  • Katrina putting Melissa, the girl she's having difficulty tutoring, in her place after Melissa threatens Katrina's job in "A Book By Its Cover":
    Katrina: I want to say first that you’d better never talk to me like that again. I don’t care who you are or how you dress or how old you look—that tantrum of yours was worse than a spoiled two-year-old!
    Melissa: You can’t—
    Katrina: Be quiet until I’m finished! Second—don’t you ever threaten me or any adult you come in contact with again, you understand? You think you can wreck my career? Well, imagine the quality of your life without a proper education! Now you’re gonna turn around, go back to that classroom, and give me a heartfelt apology. And we’re going to study until you can take that test confidently and never have to resort to childish outbursts to cover for bad grades again!
    Melissa: ...Why should I?
    Katrina: Because I’m telling you to! And my guess is that considering your obnoxious attitude, I'm probably the only tutor left in Odyssey who will help you get through school!
  • In "The Perfect Witness", Jenny is bemoaning all of the negative aspects of her blindness and how she feels useless; this is shortly followed by her getting abducted by a thief.

  • The end of "Live at the 25" is... funny, awesome... it's something, alright. The live production ends and everyone starts to wrap up, right up until Chris stops them. Don't they know how this goes? If you want to write to them, just send your card or letter to...
  • Mandy bringing Liz up short in "Lost by a Nose" when Liz, who quits a beauty contest because of a zit on her nose, scoffs at another girl who freaked out because of a nail polish stain:
    Mandy: A zit, a stain on your dress, I don't see much difference. But at least she really wanted to win from the beginning.'ve changed. [...] What happened to taking a stand against the country's obsession with beautiful people? It doesn't seem like you're taking a stand against anything. It seems like you're joining the team.
