* Seeing him [[BeatThemAtTheirOwnGame outwit Cooder in order to get back the family house]] in ''Bart Carny'' was pretty sweet, too.

* The entire second half of "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS13E22PoppasGotABrandNewBadge]] Poppa's Got A Brand New Badge" is a montage of awesome for Homer. After triggering yet another law & order calamity, Homer decides to clean up his act & opens a private security company. And does a really good job for a change! In fact, he is so much better than Wiggum that the Town appoints him the Head of Law Enforcement. And at the end, even though he knows that the Mob's gunning for him, Homer decides not to flee & makes a stand against the whole of Springfield Mafia, alone.

Added DiffLines:

* From the otherwise SurpriseCreepy couch gag in "Marge's Son Poisoning"--the couches and other sitting furniture have come to life and are revolting against humanity. Everyone in Springfield is freaking the heck out...except Moe, who chugs down a beer and fearlessly guns down the stools and booths in his tavern.

* Bart figuring out that [[spoiler: Sideshow Bob framed Krusty]] in "Krusty Gets Busted". When Sideshow Bob replaces Krusty on his show, he calls down Bart and tells him he has "big shoes to fill". Upon hearing that, Bart remembers that Homer stepped on the robber's foot [[spoiler: which Krusty wouldn't have been able to feel because he wears big floppy shoes. Bart immediately accuses Bob of robbing the Kwik-E-Mart and makes his point by whacking Bob's huge feet with a hammer. Bob is arrested and a freed Krusty [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments thanks Bart for proving his innocence]]]].

* In "Bart Star" in season 9, Lisa demands a place in the football team. Ned wishes her welcome and points out that they already have several girls on the team. Lisa loses interest and tries to get the moral highground by shaming them for using balls she assumes is made of pig skin. Ned points out that the balls are synthetic and one of the girls adds that some of the money paid for the balls is going to charity, [[BreakTheHaughty Lisa is then left in tears]]. While Lisa is generally well meaning, she can be HolierThanThou at times, so it's delicious when she gets put in her place.

* 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.
* Homer getting fed up with his father in "Grampa vs. Sexual Inadequacy"

* How about Homer's epic fight against General Sherman, the legendary catfish at Catfish Lake, in "The War of the Simpsons". After hours of trying to reel it in, where the fish was dragging his boat all around the lake, he finally gets it in by beating the crap out of it, and breaking an oar over it's head. Then, as he's about to bring it on land, he runs into Marge at the docks, who is mad at him for going fishing while they were supposed to be on a marriage retreat. To prove that his marriage means more to him than a fish, he dumps it overboard, reconciling with Marge at the expense of becoming a legend himself to the bait shop weirdos. Then he still becomes a legend to those weirdos.

Homer stops at the exit, kicks a Buzz Cola machine to get a can of pop, rips the tab off with his teeth, rips open a packet of Pop Rocks, and puts the packet over the can and shakes it. "See you in hell, candy boys!" he calls, lobbing it into the crowd. They all stop to watch as Homer continues to run in slow motion, the glass of the doors shattering behind him with the force of the fiery blast.

However, Homer gets bitten by an infected Mr. Burns, and he manages to mostly keep himself under control even after becoming infected.
* We can't forget Homer's fist fight with former President Bush ([[UsefulNotes/GeorgeHWBush George Herbert Walker]], not [[UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush Dubya]], even though Dubya was mentioned ''en passant'' back before his notorious stint as U.S. President) in the sewer in "Two Bad Neighbors".

* In "The Crepes of Wrath," while Skinner suggests deporting Bart and exchanging him with another student, Homer shows suspicion and asks whether another school is pulling the same scam. This is impressive considering his very low intelligence.
* In "King of the Hill" Homer makes a promise to get healthier and ends up attending the gym at nights. He has a fair to middling success (at least for Homer's standards) but then tops it off by hiking to the top of the Murderhorn. Although he had help, Homer has never shown as much perserverance and only surrendered when he couldn't resist the hunger and the cold.

* In one episode Homer is reading a fantasy novel to Lisa. A Harry Potter parody called Angelica Button, Homer reads ahead while Lisa's at a sleepover finding out that one of the main character's gets killed off. So to avoid scarring her (Which she admitted if that happened it would destroy her childhood forever) the next time he reads it to her he makes up his own ending which "Is freaking hilarious/awesome in its absurdity" Lisa (Who knows it's obviously made up) pretends to believe him which after he leaves reads ahead herself stating.

* In "I, D'oh-Bot", Homer, after various unsuccessful attempts, finally builds a functioning robot for Bart to compete in a RobotWars-style tournament. "Functioning", as in "himself in a costume pretending to be a battle robot". And he ''reaches the finals''. Especially awesome because most of the opponent robots have deadly sawblades and massive hammers and the like, and Homer takes all that punishment just to make Bart feel better. And when he's found out, he's been paranoid his son will hate him for bullshitting his alleged robot-building prowess, but Bart's only reaction is an extremely impressed "You mean YOU fought all of those robots!?"

After the regulars tell him to help them eat a pizza they just ordered, he SHOOTS the pizza. His [[spoiler:love for his kids ]] is enough for him to overcome his gluttony.

After his insensitivity makes Lisa hate him more, Homer goes upstairs to make amends (and bungles it a few times, until he turns on Lisa's music box and Homer tells Lisa -- in dead earnestness -- that he does care that Lisa lost someone who cared about her intellect and talent and that he doesn't have to worry about losing those he loves because he has his family[[note]]even though "Mother Simpson" and the later episodes about Homer's mom being alive and on the run from the police would make what he said HarsherInHindsight[[/note]]).

Homer however snaps back, his fun doesn't always work, but at least he tries new things and knows to enjoy himself, unlike her who regiments and nags at the family constantly and has hardly had an impulsive moment in her life. The kids (with reluctance) make clear they agree with him and even set off a "nagging montage". For anyone who thought Marge was too RightlySelfRighteous in the early episodes, this is somewhat cathartic.
* In "Lisa Gets An A", Homer defending his ownership of his lobster Pinchy from the family, who wanted to eat him, even giving him a seat at the dinner table in defiance. He also calls out the hypocrisy of Lisa's complaints since she's a passionate vegetarian.

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.

* In "Homer At The Bat", Homer wins the city championship for the Nuclear Plant softball team after having his skills demeaned by Mr Burns bringing in professional baseball players to win a bet. When Mr Burns benches Darryl Strawberry, Homer gets his chance, and, true to form, wins by complete accident when he gets distracted by Mr Burns signals, and gets beaned in the head by the pitch, giving them the point they needed to win. The team even carries the now unconscious Homer around on their shoulders in victory.
