* In one arc, Gina challenged Nate to a game of chess. Immediately beforehand, she's shown stomping Francis, who's very good at chess in his own right. Furthermore, throughout the match, Nate's showing signs of nervousness, even asking if he can take back a move. In the end, he checkmates her easily and reveals that he was intentionally making mistakes and pretending to be scared just to let her think she was winning.


* The long story arc of P. S. 38's soccer team against Jefferson's ''definitely'' counts, due to the pressure on P. S. 38 for not having beat Jefferson at anything for a long time. The game goes on...and on...and on, but neither side scores a goal, which becomes more impressive when you remember that [[TheDitz Nate's]] the goalie. The game goes into overtime, but still no goals are scored. Finally, each team has to do penalty kicks to break the tie. One of P. S. 38's players score and Jefferson is down to their last penalty kick. [[spoiler:In a scene imposed [[SilenceIsGolden silently and dramatically]], Nate saves the ball and wins the game. The crowning moment has to be when Nate grabs the ball and realizes they've won, then runs to his team in excitement as they do the same.]]

* Nate having the strength to break up with Trudy since their social lives (and Trudy's unwillingness to hang out with Nate's sixth-grade friends) made it impossible for Nate to enjoy his friends.
