** While Ben and Kevin rule the HoYay department, Paradox and humanized Hugo in ''Paradox'' left quite an impact. In the final part of the episode, [[spoiler:Paradox walks an old Hugo into the time portal, to take him on the journey he didn't have the chance to go on all those years ago.]]

** In "Hot Stretch" Rook goes from amused to hostile when Ben starts returning Ester's advances. Rook knew Ester was a thief from the start, but he didn't hold it against her then. Not to mention, when the kids assume Ben is Ester's bf, one stare from Rook has Ben hastily clarifying that he's not actually Ester's boyfriend.
** Rook pulling Ben away from the monitors to talk about romantic comedies in "Animo Crackers."
** Ben's and Rook's interactions had enough subtext that the writers changed the dynamic in an attempt to make people like Ben/Kai. It didn't work.
** "Fight At The Museum" was so loaded with Kai/Ester it was almost like Spanner had to travel back just to sink the ship so [[spoiler: he could be born in the first place.]] Not only are they very polite to each other throughout the episode and work well together during the climatic fight, then there's the fact that Kai seems to be something of a xenophile if her reaction to Ben's alien forms is any indication... even Ester's brief spats of jealousy after Spanner reveals to Ben that Kai is his destiny is pretty downplayed compared to most examples of [[ClingyJealousGirl the trope]].
