  • An Aesop: Your heroic deed can come from anywhere when it's time.

  • Engineered Heroics: Attempted by Cricket when he releases skunks into Big Coffee, but it doesn't go as planned.
  • Reality Ensues: Cricket thought the skunks would follow his plan because he explained it to them, not considering whether skunks understood human speech or not, or if they would care to do what he said if they did.
  • Smelly Skunk: The skunk herd Cricket unleashes.
  • Taking the Bullet: When Gloria finds herself cornered by a skunk about to release stink at her, Cricket jumps in front of her and gets stinked himself.


Axin' Saxon:

  • An Aesop:
    • Don't jump to conclusions until you gather all the information first.
    • Always tell the truth.
  • A Day in the Limelight: For Nancy.
  • Dramatic Drop: Done twice by Tilly.
    • In the first time, Tilly drops her cup when she sees Saxon torn to pieces, then picks it up and throws it harder to invoke Dramatic Shattering.
    • Then, as she threatens to throw Gramma's sword off a bridge, Nancy confesses to being the one who broke Saxon, and the revelation causes Tilly to drop the sword anyway.
  • Fishing Episode: The B-plot has Bill taking Cricket and Remy fishing at the city canal. Cricket gets upset that he can't get a bite while newcomer Remy picks up fish after fish. The two plotlines intersect at the end when Cricket catches Gramma after she jump into the canal to find her sword.
  • Sure, Let's Go with That: Nancy accidentally destroys Saxon by putting him in the washing machine. When Tilly assumes Gramma did the deed (as Gramma had insulted Saxon earlier), Nancy goes along with that assumption, not wanting to lose her daughter's love, up until Tilly threatens to throw away Gramma's prized sword in retaliation.
