** In one of the later episodes, Carl and everyone in the precinct are positive he will get the promotion to Captain; but the Commissioner transfers in his nephew for the position. He even has the audacity to ask Carl to help out his nephew, and Carl reluctantly agrees. Carl likes the new Captain because the guy is very friendly and values Carl's opinion. A situation comes up where two rival gangs are going to have a confrontation, and everyone turns to the Captain. Not knowing what to do, he asks Carl to tell him what actions to take; but Carl says that it's not his place to tell him since he's the Captain. Because lives are at stake, he asks Carl what he would do. Carl then starts laying out his plan, and the Captain authorizes it. When the Commissioner comes to congratulate them on a job well done, Carl gives the praise to the Captain. This in itself is a crowning moment of awesome for Carl to be humble. Another moment follows right after when the Captain tells his uncle that it was Carl's plan and that he's not cut out for it. He just likes being where he was and states the best man for the job is Carl. So, the Commissioner promotes Carl.

* One episode had Laura going on a date to a drive-in with a guy who pressured her for sex. When she told him she didn't want to, he proceeded to insult her, calling her stupid, uncool, and a baby. Laura takes this crap and also shrugs him off multiple times. She finally shouts, "For the last time, no means NO!" smacks him, and exits the car.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1nCzgYgEs4 Eddie, Steve, and Laura get one in Season Three]]. Eddie, taking from an earlier routine that Harriette and Carl pull on him to confess to something, plays "Bad Cop, Good Cop" with Steve to get Ted to confess that he was spreading [[SlutShaming false rumors about Laura]]. First Eddie intimidates Ted into confessing in front of his friends and other students that there was only one kiss with both sets of eyes open. Before Eddie can expose Ted's "vital organs to daylight", Laura steps in and [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech calls Ted out for this betrayal]].

** And it was her fault they had to stay at the hotel. Steve had told her that his car couldn't safely go any faster, but Laura was too impatient and stepped on his foot to bottom out the gas pedal. The resulting strain on the engine caused it to blow a gasket.

** After a extortionist rips Eddie and Waldo off, Carl is able to simply arrest the guy for serving alcohol to minors and turns every argument/excuse the guy uses against him. Followed up by him giving Eddie a smack on the back of the head when Eddie begins to swagger out, forgetting that the entire mess was his fault to begin with.

-->'''Harriette''': Yes it is. Right there, see? It says ''Mrs.'' Harriette Winslow. I worked here full time and I was a full-time mom. You want to talk management? I managed a home, a household budget, and a family. And Mr. Seeger, I'm talking about a job you can't call in sick for, you never get a raise or overtime, and you can't take vacation. ''Everyday'' I'm a leader, an organizer, and a mediator! Those are my qualifications. You want references?! Call Eddie, Laura, and Judy Winslow and ask them about my work. You know the number.

* When Steve Urkel [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech finally told Laura Winslow off]] after he had taken her abuse trying to unfold the "roll-out bed from Hell" and she suggested he sleep in the bathtub. This was the result of a ThereIsOnlyOneBed episode. Here it is, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukH_g_HMonk in all its glory]].

This was the result ''After'' he had driven her to her cheerleading meet out of town without so much as a ThereIsOnlyOneBed episode."Thank you" from her.

** When a gang member makes advances to Laura, repeatedly trying to touch her after she's told him not to, Steve slaps the guy's hand away, snapping "The lady asked not to be touched." Pretty ballsy considering the guy could have snapped him like a twig.
