"I woulda been here earlier, but I was busy trying to clear a friend's name."

  • The end of "Red Robins Don't Fly":
    Malika: You could have been a part of the greatest organization in the school!
    Ingrid: (putting on her sash) I already am.
  • Ms Folsom of all people, pays for the metal working teacher's dog to have its hip replacement. Though of course she denies it.
  • It's nice to see O'Farrell getting some credit for once in Masterstroke of Malevolence. Namely, when Fillmore, Ingrid, and O'Farrell's class goes on a field trip, O'Farrell is depressed because his replacement on the safety patrol for the day is a simple tripod. Later on while they're trying to solve the case, Fillmore realizes that O'Farrell might've gotten a picture of the culprit when he dropped his camera. The museum tells them that they don't have any film development supplies, but O'Farrell reveals he can develop it using a few household ingredients they do have and does so with time to spare.
    Fillmore: A tripod couldn't represent like you just did, O'Farrell. Remember that.
  • Ingrid's introduction to the show, where she says if just one person had been nice to her by two pm, she wouldn't have confessed to doing something she didn't do. Fillmore would've been there sooner, but he was busy trying to clear a friend's name.
  • Upon hearing that there is a plot to steal the results of a test paper, the resident X Middle School Maths teacher leaves the test result answers in her drawer, unlocked, and announces it to the class, because she's so convinced of her students' good judgement. She was almost wrong, but the kids who planned the theft had a change of heart at the last minute.
  • In "South of Friendship, North of Honor", Wayne has been broken by whatever caused Emily to transfer out and is rebroken when the Safety Patrol leader at his new school kicks him off the squad for snooping at Fillmore's suggestion.

  • "In Field Trip of the Just", a boy named Eric hangs around with a pair of juvenile delinquents named Sanjay and Dimitri. Eric is a straight-A student who loves animals but hides it out of fear that he'll lose his only friends. By the end once they find out the kind of person Eric really is, not only do they stay loyal to him, they ask him to tutor them so they can become better students.Eric spent all that time trying to act more like his friends so he wouldn't lose them. But his friends didn't hesitate to try and be more like Eric so they wouldn't lose him.
  • In "The Shreds Fell Like Snowflakes" Valejo hiring Frank Bishop at the end to make up for not standing up for him before.
