* Homer has one in ''Eternal Moonshine of the Simpson Mind''. After being saved by a party boat with a bouncy castle from a suicide attempt, Homer recovers all of his memories: [[spoiler: The reason why Homer drank the Forget-Me-Shot and erased all of his memories in the last 24 hours was that Marge was planning an surprise anniversary party, and he didn't want to spoil all of her efforts by seeing the surprise coming. The real awesome moment was when [[CrazyPrepared Homer anticipated himself committing suicide]] after drinking the shot, so he warns Lenny to put a bouncy castle on the party boat before drinking it. ''Homer saved himself from committing suicide for all the wrong reasons!'']]

* In "Bart Vs. Lisa Vs. The Third Grade", where Lisa moves up a grade and Bart gets moved down, ending up in the same class. The kicker is that Bart does ''better'' than Lisa. No, that's not a typo. It's nice to see that after so many episodes of living in his sister's shadow, Bart gets to shine for once.
-->'''Teacher''': A rooster sits on a roof facing north. It lays an egg. Which way does it row?
-->'''Lisa''': Okay, the sun rises in the east, so the rooster would probably want to lay it on the cool side...
-->'''Bart''': Roosters don't lay eggs. They're boys.
-->'''Teacher''': Very good, Bart.
-->'''Bart''': Mm-hmm!

* Homer's first SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome was in Homer's Odyssey the third episode of the series. Depressed and believing himself a failure in life after getting fired from The Nuclear Power Plant, Homer decides to end it and commit suicide after he realizes that he can't provide for his family and they'd be better off without him. When his family comes looking for him and are in the line of a car, Homer rescues and saves them. Then as the sun raises behind he realizes what it is he's put on Earth for and begins a crusade about safety that winds up with him getting his job back as well as a promotion.

** Anytime Flanders stops being a doormat and starts standing up for himself, it's awesome. Particularly in "Bart Star" when Homer is being a total {{Jerkass}} while Flanders is trying to coach. After a few games worth of taunting, Ned walks up to him, tells him off, and forces ''him'' to become the coach.

** The first instance of Flanders losing patience with Homer is "Dead Putting Society" first he firmly but calmly orders him out of his premises after he admonishes his family. When he tries to make amends and instead is goaded by Homer over a golfing tournament, he snaps back gloriously, angering Homer on purpose for the first time.
-->'''Homer:''' How about this Henny Penny? If Barts wins, you have to mow my lawn.
-->'''Flanders:''' And if Todd wins, you have to mow ''my'' lawn, and do a ''decent job of it for a change!''

* In ''In Marge We Trust'', we find out,that among other things, Reverend [[spoiler:Timothy]] Lovejoy has lost his zeal for preaching the Gospel due to [[spoiler:constant, panicky calls from Ned Flanders and has practically shut himself from all of Springfield.]] So ''what'', exactly, kick-starts the good Reverend's newfound passion for helping his flock? [[spoiler:After getting a call from Marge, who's been filling in for Lovejoy as counselor, that informs him that her advice had run Ned afoul of some local punks [[note]]Jimbo, Dolph, and Kearny, who were just idling by and were willing to move on until Ned took Marge's advice of telling them to vamoose, [[InsaneTrollLogic decided to harass and chase Ned all the way to the Springfield Zoo, trapping him in the baboon pit before growing bored and moving on]] [[/note]] rushes to Ned's side, and combats a herd of fully-grown, adult, territoriality aggressive baboons ''unarmed'' and '''''wins.''''']]

* A meta one: How does FXX celebrate the fact that the show now has syndication rights that extend to cable television and Internet streaming? By having a ''12-day marathon of '''all 552 episodes non-stop.'''''

* [[AlliterativeName Walt Warren]] from "The Bob Next Door". After getting drugged unconscious and his face transplanted by Sideshow Bob, leaving him unable to talk properly, and after so many hours trying to warn the police (and Bart) of Walt!Bob's motives but getting shunned due to PoorCommunicationKills, Walt decides he's had enough and has to bust out of Springfield Maximum Security Prison. He does so by swallowing the red marker that had been used to write warnings on the cell walls, making a choking gag as a warden goes in to investigate; then puts him out of commission before hightailing it out of prison, carefully avoiding the beacon lights and acting as a bush (before getting his Bob hair peed on by one guard dog), and quickly climbing out of the prison walls and making it all the way to Evergreen Terrace, keeping himself hidden from view; all while Sideshow Bob's {{leitmotif}} plays in the background. When he finally makes it to the Simpson household (as Bart is unknowingly kidnapped and being taken to Five Corners by the disguised Bob), Bob!Walt gets assaulted by Homer and Marge before regaining his ability to tell them who he actually is and what Bob's true motives are. Once the Simpson family finds out, they follow Bob on the trail before getting derailed by a waitress who claims that Bob is [[SouthOfTheBorder heading to Mexico]]. Walt, however, does not believe her and continues on to Five Corners all by himself in an effort to find Bart and Bob. Once he finally finds them, Walt demands that Bob surrender... before discovering that a {{bee|Afraid}} had crawled into his not-completely-sewn face, and both Bob and Walt struggle for the gun. Just when Bob is about to finish off Walt and Bart, Chief Wiggum and his crew (whom the boy had called earlier and warned of "Walt's" possible motive before getting a tracker placed on Bob's car) arrive in the nick of time, followed by police teams from four other states preventing Bob from escaping jurisdiction, thus saving the day again. A true Moment of Awesome for Walt, Bart, and the rest of the police.



* Despite all the critical backlash and its' rather floaty place in continuity, ''The Principal and The Pauper'' has several, most noticeably Agnes' speech at the end, when, at the absolute limit with [[spoiler:Skinner and Tamzarian]], just ''rails'' on the former for the crap she's had to put up with between the two of them. It's powerful enough that [[spoiler:when she orders the rest back into the car (read: a car that's not her's nor did she drive,) everyone that's present at the time quietly and awkwardly exit the building.]]

* Homer's uncharacteristically cunning plan in "C.E.D'oh", where after Burns tells him the plant's on-paper owner is actually a canary that Burns uses as a scapegoat in case anything goes wrong, Homer and Bart break into Burns' office and release the canary, then convince Burns that Homer would be the perfect replacement to be the company's designated patsy. When Burns agrees and names Homer the new owner, Homer's first act is to ''fire Burns from his own company''. Even Burns can't help but be impressed.
