* "The Gold Odyssey":
** Launchpad going after Laird when he finds out he brainwashed Doofus. Unwise? [[BullyingADragon Quite possibly.]] But it's a great representation of how much he cares about his "little buddy."
** Scrooge and the boys are also more protective of [[TheFriendNobodyLikes Doofus]] than normal. The boys order Doofus behind them to protect him from Laird and Scrooge goes out front with Launchpad to defend them.

* Also at the end of the "Rightful Owners" arc, Donald brings in Camille Leon. The boys go crazy with glee and Daisy greets him with an affectionate, "Don!" While Donald tells them to "hold [their] horses" until he can get Camille into custody, he's clearly glad that they're so happy to see him.
* 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:

** The next-to-last panel shows the party happily engaged in a GroupHug.
* In the last issue of a cross over with ComicBook/DarkwingDuck, Scrooge and DD discuss why they bring their kids along on their adventures. While DD states that Gosalyn usually sneaks along despite being told otherwise, Scrooge says that the long term benefits (seeing the world, the lessons learned outside a classroom) are one reason. The truth is that Scrooge can't stand being away from them for too long, and that he doesn't want to drive them away like he did his immediate family in the past.
* At the very end of the arc, after spending much of their previous time together snarking at one another, Scrooge and Darkwing Duck give each other a glare after their latest exchange of barbs...[[VitriolicBestBuds and then just smile and shake hands.]]

* Doofus has been having a rather bad day, [[CantCatchUp never being able to match his fellow Woodchucks]] and [[KidsAreCruel being mocked by them for his faults.]] Tired and discouraged, he plods up to Launchpad, who takes the moment to bend down and give his "little buddy" a pep talk, which succeeds in cheering him up.

* 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.]]

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.

* 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.
