One thing that I've always loved was the parallels between the Chronicles books and the main series ones. The only one I can think of off the top of my head is Jake's last words being "Ram the Blade Ship" when Elfangor said the exact same thing, but I know that there are others.

OK, here's one I'm too lazy to find on my own.
Which book was it when Marco says "The words 'We have to win' are the first four steps to Hell" or something to that effect?

I believe that's book 17: The Underground. They are discussing the ethics of utilizing oatmeal - essentially a biological or chemical weapon - against the Yeerks. Rachel's argument is simply that they have to win, no matter what they have to do, so they don't have much choice but to use the oatmeal (again, equivalent to a chemical or biological weapon). Marco points out that that line of thinking leads to a very bad place (i.e. those are the first four steps to hell).

Ah, thanks. I've been wondering that for a while.

<Actually you have it backwards, Marco says 'we have to win' and Rachel thinks that she knows those words are the first steps to Hell.>

<Here is one for you, in Animorphs Q & A on page 120 we are talking about how some readers didn't realize that Cassie was black at first.>
<Not counting looking at the covers, find ever page that says that Cassie is dark skinned or black.>
<Example: Book #1, page 10. (That page number is ju8st a guess, at the moment I have no idea what it says on that page.>

Hm, I would think it would be the other way around, considering the mindsets of those two characters.

P. 64. Although, I kind of cheated by searching for it in my ebook then looking in my official copy.
Also, Tobias was the one who said "We have to win," not Marco.
