YMMV: Splash

  • Hilarious in Hindsight: See Line-of-Sight Name on the main page. Madison is now one of the most common female names in the United States.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Dr. Kornbluth calls out the other scientists, particularly the leader Dr. Ross, for planning to dissect her. But they merely insult him for "not being a real scientist". This helps lead to his Heel-Face Turn afterwards.
    • Which makes Ross an idiot since he could have gotten into the history books as the one who established contact with a new race.
  • MST3K Mantra: Don't try to figure out how Madison is able to read a map despite having had no previous contact with the English language.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Kornbluth's mentor
  • Unfortunate Implications: Allen goes into the bathroom while Madison is taking a bath, despite her fervent pleas that he not do it.
    • This should be explained a bit. Allen merely asked if he could come in. It was Madison's panic and the thud when she suddenly fell out of the tub that got him so worried he broke down the door. Besides, as the scene ending shows, he didn't see any reason for her to suddenly be shy given what all they had done.
