- Iron Woobie: Natty.
- Tear Jerker: Natty and Wolf's goodbye; mostly because the sentimental music in the background and Wolf's expression when it gives a last look to Natty.
- When Natty's dad thinks she died in a train wreck, and then purposefully starts seeking out the deadliest jobs.
- The very end, when Natty approaches the logging site and hears a stick of dynamite go off, followed by a truck filled with injured men. She then breaks down crying. Fortunately her dad survived, and soon comes down the hill to meet her.
