  • Ear Worm: The opening theme. (I see a land with liberty for all...)
  • Foe Yay: You could say this is how James and Sarah started out.
  • Tear Jerker: The death of Nathan Hale. Even James cries in that scene.
    • James' reaction to seeing the sailor who was tarred and feathered.

James starts crying.

 Moses: I brought the young man I mentioned earlier. Can he ask you a question or two?

Sailor: Yes.

James: ...Is there anything I can do?

    • Sarah's cousin Tom's death at the Battle of Lexington and Concord.

  • Friendly Fandoms: With Hamilton for the reasons above.
