- Growing the Beard: This, along with Mirror Gem, is where the show got progressively more mature, shifting from a Monster of the Week comedy to a plot-driven Dramedy. The creators even consider these episodes to be the true start of the series, with previous episodes serving as an extended introduction to the world.
- What an Idiot!: Steven and Connie should know better than to attack an entity made of water with a water gun, especially if said entity is controlled by someone capable of making a tower out of the ocean.
