  • In "Cyberbullies", there's Cricket and his friends banning together to stand up to the Cyber Knights and use their kites to destroy their drones.
    • Extra awesome points: Cricket was the only one of the group not afraid to face the Cyber Knights, and was also the only one whom they are unable to hack, because he and his family don't have any devices to begin with.

    Cricket: Whaaa?! Dang, you are good.
    Dr. Enamel: Eh, so I hear.

Season 2

  • "Bad Influencer", Cricket, of all characters, was the only one in the episode who did not fall for Itchaboi and his insane words, as he is able to see right through him and tell he's a scam.
  • "Green Christmas": Cricket's Selfless Wish to get Tilly back on the nice list.
  • In "Reckoning Ball" as the Greens are threatened by Chip's wrecking ball, Keys, OF ALL PEOPLE, comes out of nowhere to protect them and vowed to arrest Chip for attempting murder.

    • Tilly, being the only one who knows Zillon is not Cricket, found out he's a fake by testing him with the word "toot".
  • "Shark Objects": Gramma's Big Damn Heroes moment, coming down from out of the sky with seagulls and taking the lifeguard out to sea, saving Cricket's life.
    Gramma: Hey, pretzel thief! You messed with the wrong Gramma, for I am THE BIRD QUEEN!
  • "Quiet Please":
    • Bill willingly sacrificing himself to give Cricket the gift of reading, while simultaneously costing him his own.
    • Also Tilly managing to stay quiet the whole time, and was thus the only Green who was not threatened by the librarian.
  • "Chipwrecked":
    • By this episode, Cricket has stopped taking Chip seriously and begins treating him like a joke; although the end of the episode is dark for Chip biting right back at him for it, it marks the turning point he fully considers Chip a true threat to the family and it is seen to him never to mock Chip again.
