* In "Olga Gets Engaged", Helga was perfectly willing to let Olga throw her life away so she can marry to her fiancé, Doug, who was really a smooth-talking con-artist. Helga soon realizes she can't go through with it and threatens Doug to leave before she reveals his true nature to everyone. He asks why she would do this despite her resent towards Olga, and her response? "When your sister's in trouble, you're supposed to do something about it. It doesn't matter if you like her or not, you're supposed to do something."
* What prevents "Pigeon Man" from being a complete DownerEnding is that Pigeon Man now knows that there are good people like Arnold and hopes to find someone like him.

** The end of [[AwfulWeddedLife Arnold's nightmare]] has Arnold call out Dream!Helga for her JerkassFacade - [[spoiler: too bad the LoveEpiphany is interrupted by his alarm clock]].
--->'''Arnold''': Why are you doing this? Look, I know you're not this lazy and cold and uncaring! You may act like that, [[HiddenDepths but deep down I know you're smart and you have feelings!]] So if we ''have'' to be married to each other, then I want you to start showing it.

* Let's face it, ALL of Helga's dream sequence in "Married". She's so filled with joy over the idea of being married to Arnold in the future and throughout the dream the two of them act like quite possibly one of the [[HappilyMarried sweetest most adorable couples in animation history]].

* A short but sweet one at the end of "Door #16". We are given an episode surrounding the mysterious Mr. Smith, a boarder who is heavily dedicated to his privacy and implied to be a government agent. Arnold is tasked with delivering a package and after going around and some chaos, we discover what the package is: A framed picture of all the boarders at the dinner table with the words "My family" written underneath.
** Considering the camera position, he probably has his meals the same times they do, just him in his room.
** This becomes more meaningful when Season 2 rolls around. He does not show up and WordOfGod says he has moved out. Having been there for three years, it's clear he grew to care for the rest of the boarders and considering the episode's timing (the middle of Season 1), perhaps he knew it was time for him to leave Sunset Arms, but wanted something to remind him of his family.
* The episode "Hey Harold!", featuring quite possibly one of the most touching and adorable pairings in the history of animation, Harold and Patty.
** Any episode starring Big Patty, really; how Arnold manages to convince her to fake a beatdown on Helga and they share a bit of heart to heart, how Harold stands up to [[ThoseTwoGuys Stinky and Sid]] when they mock Patty (twice; first time after a dance together, second time after losing an arm-wrestling match to her with pride and dignity) and even ''[[SpoiledSweet Rhonda]]'' who gave another snobby materialistic girl a verbal beatdown before things escalated into a repeat of the reform school they both went to, or worse. By the end of each episode, they all gain a bit of respect towards Patty and find that she isn't so bad as they first thought after all.
* Nearly the entirety of "Arnold's Christmas".

*** For the short version, Helga essentially performed an ActOfTrueLove; if there were any doubts that she really does love him, this episode will clear them all away.

* When Oskar finally learns to read by reading a little kids' book called "Pet the Kitty." After being removed from the library, he's afraid he won't be able to read the signs to get home again, but when he finds a stray cat, he picks it up and begins reciting the book. He finally manages to read well enough to find his way home. His staying up reciting the book may have annoyed everyone else, but you could just hear how happy the guy was. Added heartwarming for the cat that got a new home.
