She might mention how Dwarven Centurions can drop out from anywhere, how bandits never seem to have enough food to keep everyone fed, how beautiful the Gilderglean is, etc. She is so much better than the companions in vanilla. Speaking of which, she will have conversations with Lydia, sometimes getting Lydia to complain about her housecarl duties
One of the best parts of Skyrim's companion system is the dialog that they say in certain areas. For example, Marcurio will talk your ear off about Dwemer ruins and give you various tidbits of lore and insight. I love that aspect. I hope the next Elder Scrolls game really expands that part of the dialog. It goes so far to adding to the world immersion.
