Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

  • When Connor is mourning his friend dying from a parasitic infection. Connor tells Cutter he can't be part of the team anymore, and Cutter says they can't do the job without him, as he's one of the few people who knows the threat the anomalies pose, ignoring how two episodes earlier he fired Connor. And to cap it all, Cutter then gives him a hug.
  • Season 2 Episode 4 contains a pretty big Tear Jerker (it's an Anyone Can Die show, so it was very possible that Abby was actually dead), but every single thing that Connor does when he realizes she's alive is a cross between this and Crowning Moment of Awesome. Normally the Non-Action Guy on the team, Connor gets slapped across the room by a huge monster, gets back up, chases the damn thing back through an anomaly and knocks another monster out cold with a rock, all because he is not going to lose her again.
  • When it turned out Connor's password into the backdoor of the ARC computer system was "Abby Temple"
  • At the end of Season three, we have this wonderful conversation between Connor and Abby as they are stuck up a tree in the Cretaceous era with no hope of rescue:

 Abby: Close your eyes, imagine a happy place, you are on a beautiful beach with the sun shining.

Connor: Are you there too?

Abby: If you like.

Connor: Are you wearing a bikini?

Abby: Yes, if you like.

Connor: The water is really warm, it is lovely.

Abby: Yeah.

Connor: Abby, can I move back into the flat please?

Abby: Yeah.

    • They have no hope of rescue at this point, and it isn't the way they reassure each other, it is Connor asking if he can move back into the apartment in the full knowledge that they are unlikely to ever get back home that makes this troper break out in tears.
  • Lester's reaction to the return of Connor and Abby in series 4, for several reasons. Firstly, he kept their lockers! Secondly, his expression when Connor and Abby come through the anomaly. And thirdly...
