* The ending of the season 4 episode [[http://www.touched.com/episodeguide/seasonfour/419.html Flights Of Angels]] (aired in 1998). To clarify, the CharacterOfTheDay Richard has [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amyotrophic_lateral_sclerosis ALS]], better known as Lou Gehrig's disease. The doctors never give him the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Riluzole medicine]] introduced by the FDA in 1996 to treat the disease, and when their family is all together his wife does not call [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/9-1-1 911]] (the emergency telephone number was introduced in 1968) to get medical help to save his life. There was no reason why he shouldn't have lived.

* FridgeLogic: They almost never actually ''prevent'' the life-destroying events that led the targets into their current crises. Parodied in George Carlin's ''Touched by an Atheist'' sketch on Series/{{MADtv}}. "If God loves you [enough to cure your tumors], why did he give you tumors in the first place?".
** This is one of many advantages that ''Series/HighwayToHeaven'' had over ''TouchedByAnAngel'' since, usually, they were able to prevent or at least diffuse the event rather than just allowing it to happen and helping the victims "cope" with the event that screwed their lives up.

Which leads to the question of why people who ask questions like that always forget that in most monotheistic religions happiness is a privilege and not a right.
