** He gives one of them a birthday present...only for the recipient to point out that it's not his birthday. Lang points out that the present is for his ''younger brother's wife's younger brother''.

* The bittersweet moment [[spoiler: Between Knightly and Simon in the Detention Centre. Even if Simon no longer considers him a friend, Knightly is almost like a different person.]]

** I choose to believe this is canon. Gregory's spirit wasn't helplessly watching tragedy unfold for fifteen years: he went to Phoenix and gave him the motivation to help Miles find his way again ''and'' avenge his own death while he was at it. Mia Fey may even have seen his spirit watching over Phoenix but chose to keep quiet about it.

** And the game's BigBad picks up on it too; despite seeing them together only for a little while, he knows that endangering Kay will rile Edgeworth and bring out his best effort.

* At the end of the game, when Courtney feels that she has failed as a judge because her [[LoveIsAWeakness puny human feelings]] towards [[spoiler:her adoptive son]] prevented her from being the cold, stoic, impartial robot of the law she aspires to be. Edgeworth only has this to say in response:

* At Edgeworth has some encouraging words for Judge Courtney when she is disgusted with herself for failing to operate a fair and impartial trial when someone she loved was in danger.
-->'''Edgeworth''': Judge Courtney. I am not as well acquainted with the Goddess of Law as you are. However... isn't that goddess also a mother of other gods? The law makes exceptions for extenuating circumstances. It understands a mother's heart. I'd say perhaps your Goddess sympathizes with you more than you think.

** It definitely becomes clear in Case 4, where he is always at Kay's side, always [[PapaWolf defending her]], always [[YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre believing in her]] (even though she doesn't believe in herself), while Blaise Debeste misses no opportunity to insult his own son and cut him down. And the contrast only becomes stronger once you learn that Sebastian isn't so much a SmugSnake getting his comeuppance as a WellDoneSonGuy who doesn't realize how pathetic he looks in the eyes of others -- and that Blaise is an utter bastard.

* In both games, whenever Phoenix is referenced it's usually Edgeworth reflecting on or referring to ways in which Phoenix has changed him.

** Later he refers to Phoenix less obliquely as "A certain ''friend''". Phoenix might not appear in these games, but let it not be said he doesn't have a presence of a different kind.
* Any of the odd moments where Edgeworth actually acknowledges that Larry is, in fact, his friend. Heartwarming, because he seems even more annoyed with Larry than anyone else, but like Phoenix, seems to look after him as if he were Larry's older brother.

brother.

* An odd example, but many of young!Edgeworth and young!Franziska's interactions in Turnabout Reminiscence. Many of them verge on CrowningMomentOfFunny, but it's also sweet to see how these two overly serious, strictly-raised geniuses can act like childish siblings. It's also apparent how they do care for each other, even if they have trouble showing it. Some scenes of note are Edgeworth saying that maybe one day they can fight crime together as two equal prosecutors, and when Edgeworth briefly wishes he had the power to give the decorated knife to Franziska as a gift, since she seemed almost entranced by its detailed carvings.
** It all culminates when [[spoiler: they're both desperate for the other's safety when Calisto Yew whips out a gun.]]
* In the first Investigations game, during the flashback to Edgeworth's first properly meeting Kay, the dialogue gets increasingly focused on the Promise Book that Kay and her father made and how much Mr. Faraday cared for Kay. It's made increasingly heartwarming because Gumshoe nearly got himself arrested on a double murder charge to cover up Kay breaking one of her promises.
