* ''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]])''

* Meta crossover moment: After seeing WesternAnimation/InsideOut, Craig [=McCracken=] [[https://twitter.com/CrackMcCraigen/status/617228626300309505 said that Bing Bong is welcome to come stay at Foster's.]] In response, [[https://twitter.com/PatrickManway/status/617306412805324801/photo/1 someone drew a picture]] of Riley and Bing Bong arriving there.

* ''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.]]

** 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.

* In ''My So-Called Wife'', Mr. Herriman was originally thought of as [[SarcasmMode being sarcastic]] when he said that he would get Mac and Bloo their own personal jet-cars, should the two decide to help Mr. Herriman with Coco. This is what he said to them, [[ExactWords "Sure, I'll get you a jet-car. No, wait, I'll get you]] ''[[ExactWords two]]'' [[ExactWords jet-cars!"]] While he ''was'' sarcastic about said jet-cars being in the mail, at the end of the episode, [[SubvertedTrope we see that he was being serious; Mac and Bloo have their own personal jet-cars, courtesy of Mr. Herriman.]] and he could have not done so, considering the whole charity event to Foster's was revealed to be nothing more than a fraud.

* Even though it was intended to be a funny moment, the [[BookEnds book end]] of the series was one for this troper. 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 LaurenFaust in the closing credits.

* ''The Sweet Stench of Sucess'', Bloo becomes a celebrity, but can't see his creator, Mac, which leaves Mac heartbroken. By the end of the episode, they meet up again, and even a JerkAss like Bloo admits that he loves Mac more than anything.

** [[spoiler: Of course, Bloo does manage to succeed in getting Mr. Herriman to loosen up by unintentionally having the chickens attack him, however... it seems to work a ''[[GoneHorriblyRight little too well]]'' as Mr. Herriman takes loosing up [[UpToEleven way too far]], to the point that things like bills don't even matter to Herriman anymore.]]

* The "Let Your Hare Down" episode is an example of this, most particularly for Bloo. Even though the Frankie and the others had schemed with Bloo to do this, it's the simple fact that [[spoiler:Bloo goes through many different trials to try and make the normally uptight Mr. Herriman lighten up.]] Keep in mind, this is ''Bloo'' we are talking about; someone who's so selfish, he'd sell his friends (except ''maybe'' Mac) out if it meant satisfying his own desires... and he goes [[spoiler:through every possible fun thing he can think of just to see Mr. Herriman smile, ergo, he's doing something for not only his own benefit, but for Herriman's and those at Foster's who believed he needed to stop being so uptight.]]
