Awesome: Murdoch Mysteries
  • From "Victor, Victorian": Inspector Brackenreid was being very sexist in front of Dr. Ogden and Detective Murdoch, and neither of them confronted him. However, Julia was obviously very uneasy and took it amiss. William later asked her what he had done to make her angry and she admitted she had wanted his support. And here comes William's crowning moment of awesome: he says that she has his support, completely, but also that it's her argument and that she doesn't need him to rescue her because she's strong enough to fight on her own.
    William: I made you angry earlier.
    Julia: Yes.
    William: I don't know why.
    Julia: The Inspector was being archaic and thick-headed and you just stood there.
    William: Julia, that was your argument. And for me to jump in as though you aren't strong enough to handle yourself in the situation somewhat defeats that argument.
    Julia: Well, I only wanted your support.
    William: And you have it. Completely. But I will not rescue you, Julia, because from everything I know about you, you don't need it.
    Julia: Your logic is infuriating.
    William: Not just a little bit winsome? (smiling)
    Julia: (smiling and laughing) Perhaps a little.
  • "Lovers in a Murderous Time": Inspector Brackenreid gets excited that there is a bloody thing Murdoch can learn from him — he brilliantly figured out that money could have been even better motive for murder than love.
  • "Lovers in a Murderous Time": Murdoch, being rather blasť, asks Mr. Rodriguez whether he really believes in soul mates, past lives and reincarnation. He answers by asking Murdoch what his belief is. When he hears that it's Roman Catholicism, he points out the improbable which Catholics believe in — virgin birth, son of God and resurrection, and says: "And yet I do not mock you." It's even more awesome as Detective Murdoch takes it very well and sees his point.
  • Julia knocking out/catching Eleanor Grimes with a well-timed arm in "The Filmed Adventures of Detective William Murdoch". This came after the actress playing Julia in the film earlier complained that Julia's duties as coroner were boring and that there wasn't enough "action" for her character.
    Julia: That, my dear, is a woman of action!
