--->'''Gerald:''' Well, I guess miracles can happen after all.\\
'''Arnold:''' Yeah, but, how did it happen, Gerald? I mean, it doesn't make sense.\\
'''Gerald:''' Don't try to make sense out of it, Arnold. A miracle's a miracle, and that's all there is to it. Maybe you've got a Christmas angel looking out for you or something.\\
'''Arnold:''' A Christmas angel...yeah, maybe.\\

* In "Olga Comes Home", at the end of the episode, Olga tells Helga that she's lucky that their parents don't notice her, because she's sick of "performing for them like a little wind-up doll" (as Olga describes it). Since Olga revealed that she's well-aware of Bob and Miriam's neglect of Helga, Olga's somewhat overwhelming affection and doting over her "dear baby sister" could be her reaching out to Helga and giving her the love and attention that she doesn't get from either her mom or dad. Which makes Helga's insistence that she "can't stand" Olga in a later episode really sad.

*** 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.

** A bit before that, when Phoebe is crying, saying that skipping grades was a stupid idea, Helga says this: [[YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre "Just because it didn't work out doesn't mean it was stupid. It was smart. You're smart."]] It's brief, but it shows despite being... [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold harsh at times, Helga can still be a good friend]].

*** It's a small moment, but the first time we see Helga start to bond with Dr. Bliss is when Helga discovers they both know the same jump rope rhymes. Cut to the two of them jumping rope side by side while saying the same rhyme.

* In a weird way, the ending of "New Bully on the Block". Due to Wolfgang being voiced by Toran Caudell (Arnold's Season 1 voice actor) and Ludwig being voiced by Phillip Van Dyke (Arnold's Season 2 and 3 voice actor), it seems oddly touching that the episode ends with the two of them becoming friends.[[spoiler:.. [[TheBadGuyWins at the expense]] [[NiceJobBreakingItHero of screwing over Arnold himself]] (and the other fourth graders).]] In fact the whole reason the episode was made was so they could have all three of Arnold's voice actors in the same episode and a special thanks for them is listed in the credits.

** Also, when Arnold fails to win Lila a big stuffed Teddy Bear at a (rigged) bottle toss stand, the stand attendant gives him a little stuffed turtle as a consolation prize, meekly stating he "felt sorry for him." This small but kind gesture lets Arnold present the prize to Lila.
