Awesome: Dumbing of Age
- Sarah to the rescue
Joyce: God sent you after me!
Sarah: Yeah, the Old Testament God.
- Not quite on the scale of the above, but seeing Danny grow a spine for all of thirty second is kinda epic.
- Dina grows one as well after her Berserk Button is pushed.
- Amber gets angry and gives a long-overdue punch. The hovertext sums it up: "Panel five may be the most satisfying thing I've drawn in the last fifteen years."
Amber: In other words, dad, science says you can kiss my ass.
- It's a small moment in that scene, but kudos to Sierra's dad for stepping in between Blaine and Amber before Ruth shows up.
- It gets better
- Joyce refuses and rebukes her parents for their hypocrisy.
Joyce: Jesus says to love your neighbor as yourself. Luke 10:27. That's everyone. Not just people we like. Not everyone except the Samaritans. Everyone. And so I will not act likeŚlike a jerk to my best friend and her family. Anyway, that's what the Son of God says. He is my higher authority, my moral foundation. Not you.
- Bonus points for it being based in her Christianity, rather than in defiance of it.
- Danny takes care of things. Also heartwarming.
- Sal and Marcie are friends, but Malaya is apparently The Friend Nobody Likes and Carla has only just met them. This doesn't stop them from dog-piling the threatening lady in the costume together. Sal then chooses to just walk away, derailing whatever confrontation Amber had in mind (well, in theory).
- Dorothy figuring out Amazi-Girl's identity just by putting the evidence together is relatively impressive considering that so few others in canon saw through the Clark Kenting (Amber's roommate Dina may be the only other one to figure it out without unmasking her). The real CMOA, though, is when she decides not to expose Amber after all, and her explanation is funny and a bit heartwarming to boot.
- Leslie dressing down Roz after Roz shamed Joyce despite Leslie's orders to stop.
