* The conclusion. For most of the first two episodes prior to becoming Gizmoduck, Fenton is just up screwing up worse and worse and is starting to be seen in-universe by Scrooge as TheLoad. In the final part where the Money Bin is stolen by [[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere some robots]] that want to melt it and everything with it down in order to create more robots, their leader MEL exposes Fenton as Gizmoduck and sentences him and Scrooge to be executed. [[DespairEventHorizon Scrooge loses all faith at this point]], but Fenton manages to singlehandedly [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome defeat MEL]] ''[[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome without]]'' [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome the use of his Gizmoduck suit by simply using his natural talents to show up his supposed superior computing skills]], and then manages to rescue Scrooge and Launchpad and recover the Money Bin. After the trio return to Earth and the Money Bin is replaced, Scrooge proudly tells him to show up to work the next morning. [[EarnYourHappyEnding Fenton has finally earned Scrooge's respect]].

* Launchpad and Doofus’ friendship can be counted as heartwarming in general. Even when the whole world is picking on him, [[UndyingLoyalty Doofus still believes in Launchpad till the end]], and [[BigBrotherMentor Launchpad]] is very affectionate and protective towards his "little buddy." This is especially adorable considering that not a lot of other people in Duckburg seem to really want the youngster around. With this in mind, [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe it's no wonder Doofus thinks Launchpad is the greatest thing since sliced bread.]]

* While it's also listed on the TearJerker page, Scrooge's reaction to [[spoiler: Launchpad's apparent death]] demonstrates loud and clear that [[AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther the pilot isn't just a source of cheap labor or a verbal punching bag to him.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Scrooge's reaction. He's just had an absolutely horrible day, having lost everything to the Beagle Boys, and Scrooge is short-tempered enough under normal circumstances. But he thanks Launchpad, his tone indicating that he knows Launchpad has given them all the help he can -- and much more than he's obliged to.


Added DiffLines:

* Also at the end of the "Rightful Owners" arc, the triplets and Webby question Scrooge about a statement he made to Rockerduck about "if you want something done right, do it yourself" -- didn't they help? Scrooge smiles and gives the following response:
-->'''Scrooge''': Boys...Webby...yes, even you, Launchpad...you're my family. When I say "myself", you're part of myself. I couldn't have done this without you.
** The next-to-last panel shows the party happily engaged in a GroupHug.

* While it gets less so after Scrooge's GoldFever almost overwhelms him, it's sweet that Launchpad agrees to be the harpies' "big deipno" (even though he's rattled by what's happened so far) because he knows how important getting the Fleece is to Scrooge and wants him to be happy.




to:

* This moment afterwards:
-->'''Harpy #1''': I don't believe it!
-->'''Harpy #2''': Look what you've done!
-->'''Scrooge''': I had no choice. He was about to roast my friend.


Added DiffLines:

** It's also rather adorable that Launchpad isn't concerned at this point about the repercussions for him so much as he is the repercussions for Scrooge and Doofus if he can't put things right.

Scrooge and the boys are very much benevolent to their staff, and the others have stuck their necks out to help and protect their bosses even when it goes above and beyond the call of duty.

* At the end of the episode, Launchpad, giving an acceptance speech for the honor Duckburg is giving him over having saved the Earth from the threat of a Martian bomb, calls Doofus up on the stage to share the honor, saying that, "He believed in me when everyone else thought I was an idiot. It's thanks to him I'm a hero." The TV spot ends with Doofus hugging Launchpad.
