* The [[BookEnds book end]] of the series. The opening animation shows the house being drawn, and the closing animation of the episode "Good-bye To Bloo" shows the house being un-drawn, as if to say "Thanks for watching, but all good things must come to an end." Followed by a thanks from CraigMcCracken and Creator/LaurenFaust in the closing credits.

* Frankie's status as Mac's CoolBigSis. As has been pointed out [[FridgeHorror else]][[TearJerker where]], Mac's life is one that has driven him incapable of imagining security that doesn't involve some kind of abuse. And yet here is this woman who has no reason to be anything more than polite to him but chose to be the closest thing Mac has to a loving older sibling and even in some ways a ParentalSubstitute.

* No mention of "Who Let The Dogs In?" That moment near the end, before the happy twist, where Frankie gently takes the last puppy from Eduardo, sadly saying just "I'm sorry, Ed..." - and then Eduardo QUIETLY COVERING HIS EYES AS HIS SHOULDERS SAG...well, it takes a stronger man than This Troper not to find themselves on the verge of ManlyTears.
* Even though it was intended to be a funny moment, the [[BookEnds book end]] of the series was one for this troper.

** Even better, if you take "Destination Imagination" as the finale, it shows ALL of the friends running through the hall like they do in the intro and ending with one big party. And having it in the toy chest says to all viewers "They're right here whenever you want to play."

* ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'' is a film that features an imaginary friend - one who fears being forgotten forever, to boot - as a supporting character. After he saw it, Creator/CraigMcCracken tweeted, [[https://twitter.com/CrackMcCraigen/status/617228626300309505 "Also Bing Bong's welcome to stay at Foster's if he likes."]] At least two pieces of fanart were created in response: [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CJEc6OLUYAAFX6v.jpg one of Riley and Bing Bong arriving there,]] and [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CJEcWsuWoAEvJfw.jpg one where Bloo is about to excitedly show him around, saying that he'll blend right in.]]

* Heck, the series' entire opening sequence qualifies! After Foster's is drawn into existence, Mac walks up the house's stairs and meets up with Wilt, Coco, and Eduardo, who are all pleased to see him. We then cut to Bloo, who's just standing there bored, but is visibly happy to see Mac and we see all the friends laughing with joy.

* Despite the episode itself being controversial, ''Foster's House for Make-Em-Up Pals'' did have a sweet moment at the end--when Goofball [[spoiler:turns out to actually be an imaginary friend and Frankie has to admit she was wrong, Goofball gives her a sincere thank you for taking care of him while he was there, something she's genuinely touched by. And given how much emphasis is placed on how thankless Frankie's job is, this must have meant a ''lot'' to her]].

* ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'' movie, "Destination Imagination": After the climax, Frankie wants to free the antagonist, a RealityWarper with serious separation issues who'd destroy any would-be rescuers so long as Frankie stayed by his side. Mac, Bloo and the gang, who have just narrowly escaped his giant monster form, try to talk her out of it. Herriman, who has been absolutely brutal to Frankie (even moreso in this movie than throughout the rest of the series), tells her, "[[spoiler:Miss Frances, I have known you since you were a little girl. As I have watched you grow, I've been amazed at your lack of maturity, laziness, and lack of judgement. And all that time...I was wrong.]]" [[spoiler:He goes on to say that if Frankie wants to set him free, he trusts her judgement. Later, when the [[HeelFaceTurn villain-turned-good-kid]] tells Herriman Frankie is a wonderful person, Herriman lays his hand on her shoulder and agrees, "That she is."]] It's not as touching if you don't know the characters as well, but to any long-time fan of the series...OcularGushers [[CatchPhrase to the max]].

* ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'' movie, The pilot has several sweet moments.
** For one, all of the other residents are nothing but welcoming to Bloo (unaware of what [[{{Jerkass}} a nuisance]] [[{{Flanderisation}} he'll eventually become]]). Wilt willingly forfeits his bed to him and Coco lays him an egg with a photo of Mac inside when she sees him having trouble sleeping.
** Mac keeping his promise to come back and visit Bloo at the house, proving Mr. Herriman wrong and prompting Frankie to continue trying to [[DefrostingTheIceQueen melt his frozen heart]].
--> '''Mr. Herriman''': It's just a cruel fact of life, Miss Franciss. Every child tires of their imaginary friend eventually.
--> ''(Frankie leans in and gives him a knowing grin)''
--> '''Frankie''': [[WhamLine Yours didn't]].
--> ''(Exits past a portrait of [[{{Foreshadowing}} the woman who eventually turns out to be Madame Foster]])''

** At the end of the episode, when Bloo is found out, Mr. Herriman gets a little PetTheDog moment that reminds the audience that he's still a ReasonableAuthorityFigure at his core. At first, it seems he's going to discipline Bloo for breaking the bust, but it turns out that imaginary friends break it by accident all the time and that, since he had hundreds of duplicates made for speedy replacement, he assures Bloo that he had nothing to worry about.
