* A small but rather important one: Art says of Tony, "She's [[spoiler:a trans clone]]." Felix corrects him: "''He's'' trans. He's, yeah." This is also a meta one for the writers as the show manages to address a common confusion people have when dealing with transgender individuals without being {{anvilicious}} about it.
* In 2.09, [[spoiler:Helena]] observes a woman at the Proletheans' compound being abusive to one of the children. Her reaction is a deadpan, "[[spoiler:There was a woman in convent like you. You touch her again and I will gut you like a fish]]". She gets another one later in the episode with her BigDamnHeroes moment saving [[spoiler:Mark and Gracie]] and her PayEvilUntoEvil moment towards [[spoiler:Henrik]].

And he had her convinced that he had memorized the cipher himself, when actuality he snuck it to Kira who, in turn, gives it to Cosima in the final moments of season 2.]]

She sends him to Mrs. S so they can collaborate on a plan to get her and Sarah out of there -- which involves double agents and shady deals with the military]] -- and it works perfectly. Not bad for an eight year old.
* Cosima and Scott [[spoiler: build a contraption to help Sarah get loose during her unexpected operation. Just before she's cut open, Sarah uses it to launch a pencil into Rachel's eye and escape.]]
