* Some of Marcus's DoggedNiceGuy moments with Ivanova
** Making a goofy chart for the sole purpose of getting a tense Ivanova to smile
** Importing bacon and eggs for her to have for breakfast one morning. Even Garibaldi, no stranger to importing luxury foods, considers these nearly nearly impossible to get on Babylon 5.

* In "[[Recap/BabylonFiveS03E10SeveredDreams Severed Dreams]]", the station staff are about to declare independence in response to President Clark's attacks on civilian populations on Mars. They know this will mean a shooting fight with [=EarthForce=]. Before making the announcement, Sheridan calls his father, knowing they won't be able to speak again for some time. His father tells him he understands, and gives him some reassuring words:
-->'''David Sheridan''': "John, I can't imagine the kind of decisions that are going through your mind right now. I'm sure they're not easy. The important ones never are. [[SoProudOfYou But when push comes to shove, you've always done the right thing.]] What was the first lesson I ever taught you?"

** Later in the series, when Garibaldi attempts to confront Franklin about his possible stim addiction, Garibaldi does it over dinner in Garibaldi's quarters, with the implication that the two eat together, with Garibaldi cooking, fairly routinely.

* In "[[Recap/BabylonFiveS02E17Knives Knives]]", Franklin is once again invoking DoctorsOrders for the sake of Sheridan's health, ordering him to take time off from work to rest when Sheridan seems to be having some sort of breakdown (Sheridan is actually dealing with an incorporeal alien which as taken shelter inside his body and mind, but nobody knows that yet). Sheridan compares him to his notoriously hard-edged Marine father:
-->'''Sheridan''': You know, [[ToughLove you're just]] like [[BabylonFiveS02E10GROPOS your father]].
-->'''[[DoctorJerk Franklin]]''': ''[Genuinely pleased]'' Well, thank you.

** Earlier in the season, we see G'Kar on his search for Garibaldi. Finding himself in trouble, G'Kar is rescued by Marcus, of all people. Later, after the pair had gone to ground, Marcus asks why G'Kar is putting so much on the line for Garibaldi. G'Kar reveals that it's because Garibaldi is his friend- the first friend he had who wasn't a Narn. When G'Kar asks Marcus why he followed him, Marcus response it that he never had a friend who was a Narn before.

* Dr. Stephen Franklin has put Garibaldi, Ivanova, and Sheridan on "food plans" because they aren't looking after themselves nutritionally. Garibaldi spends most of the episode trying to get the ingredients for bagna cauda, which Franklin had flat-out refused to let Garibaldi eat, past him. When Franklin catches Garibaldi red-handed taking possession of said ingredients, Garibaldi tells him why he was so fixated on the dish, and why it was ordered for his birthday. Garibaldi's father was a master chef, and bagna cauda was his specialty, and every year on Michael's birthday, his father would make bagna cauda for him, as his special nonverbal "I love you" from father to son. Michael now makes it for himself in memory of his father. Franklin is moved enough to not only authorize the meal, but ask Garibaldi if there's enough for two (which leads to a Crowning Moment of Funny.)

-->'''Londo''': When they ran out of ships, they used guns. When they ran out of guns, they used knives, and sticks, and bare hands. They were magnificent. I only hope that when it is my time I may die with half as much dignity as I saw in their eyes at the end. They did this for two years. They never ran out of courage but in the end they ran out of time.

* Later in the series, Londo is in a {[plan}} that spun out into a GambitRoulette, with the fate of an entire world in the balance. An assassination attempt has gone awry, and could lead to the death of billions. Londo stands revealed as a traitor, and is helpless to stop the upcoming slaughter... until [[BreakTheCutie Vir steps in and finishes the assassination.]] Londo, realizing this is the first time Vir's ever compromised his morality, tells him that the knowledge that the act was necessary doesn't make up for him, but gently reminds Vir that the overwhelming guilt he feels means he's still a good person. The heartwarming really steps in, however, at FridgeBrilliance: by this point in the story, Londo's killed far better people for far less, with far fewer moral qualms than Vir. Londo has long since convinced himself that he is past redemption, but in a quiet moment where Vir is all but asking Londo to tell him the ends completely justify the means, Londo caringly but firmly tells him that they don't, because he knows better and wants what's best for Vir.

* In ''And The Rock Cried Out, No Hiding Place'', Sheridan is [[TheChainsOfCommanding straining under the weight of his responsibilities]] as leader of the Army of Light. Reverend Dexter comes to pay him a visit and talks to him about what he's going through, and suggests that Sheridan should talk with [[LoveInterest Delenn]] about his troubles. Sheridan of course doesn't want to burden her, so Dexter tells him a story about how before they were married, his wife would always come to his house to help clean up, even though her house is a mess to. When he asked her why she bothered, she told him:
