Awesome: Sally Forth (Howard)
- When Ted stands up to Sally's mother, tells her off for belittling his wife and daughter, and calls for a taxi service to send their "bravest driver" to pick her up. Laura is actually stunned and speechless at this.
- During the planning of Jackie's wedding to Ralph, Jackie gets her turn telling off her mom, this time for trying to hijack the planning to be what she wants and ignoring all of Sally's hard work. Crosses into Crowning Moment of Heartwarming, as Jackie acknowledges that while her mom "wants what is best", Sally is the one taking Jackie's desires into consideration.
