* "John the Baptist": The titular prophet offers to share his meal of locusts and wild honey with the kids. They're naturally apprehensive at first, due to the locusts, but after seeing John and his two followers casually snacking away, Chris and Joy decide to join in...and Gizmo, who's been visibly struggling not to hurl, gets a [[{{Squick}} "X_X"]] expression and drops down in a dead faint.

* "Jesus in the Wilderness": At one point, Superbook takes Chris, by himself, to witness Jesus's trials at the end of His 40 days of fasting in the wilderness. Chris ends up getting deposited on a rather slippery rock-face, where he slides off--and gets caught by ArchangelMichael, who puts him down safely. Chris starts to thank his rescuer, only to be startled at the realization of ''who'' exactly he's facing...and falls off the edge of their current position AGAIN. Michael's only reaction to that is to shake his head and smile before saving Chris again.
