* "''Euphoria''", especially the second part, is ripe with these moments (strewn in in-between all the tearjerking and AdultFear and whatnot).
** You have Foreman calling his dad and his dad flying in to see him, and all their interactions. Seeing Foreman breaking down crying when talking to his father about the very real possibiity that he might be dead before the day is through is rather gut-wrenching but it also gives some real nice insight to their relationship, and they show a lot of love for one another through discreet means. Though most heartwarning is probably Mr. Foreman telling his son "''I don't want to have to miss you''".
** Cameron's concern for Foreman despite what he did to her earlier in the episode, and Foreman asking her to be his medical proxy. Her tears at his bedside, both out of fear and sadness and out of joy, shows how much she does value him, despite their arguments over the episodes leading up to "''Euphoria''".
** On a minor scale, Chase showing a colder attitude towards Foreman fits into this as well, since it's derived from Foreman having intentionally exposed Cameron. Chase cares enough about Cameron that he can't instantly forgive Foreman for putting her at risk, despite Foreman being in mortal danger.
** Most of all the double episode provides a lot of these moments from House, as it becomes clear how much his team means to him. He goes to great lengths trying to save Foreman's life and protect Chase and Cameron from being exposed and his handling of the case is clearly impacted by his own emotional investment. Oddly, the most heartwarming part of it is House choosing to try and expose Steve McQueen (his pet rat, previously one of the few beings he's been shown to care about) so that he can kill him and do an autopsy to find what is killing Foreman. It doesn't work, Steve doesn't get sick, but the sacrifice still stands.

* In "Joy to the World", House gets a clinic patient who has become pregnant, but insists that she's a virgin. At first, House, [[JerkAss being House]], simply assumes the patient is being unfaithful to her fiancee. Eventually, however, he discovers something shocking about her: she was telling the truth. The child only had maternal DNA, none from the father. The patient had the first recorded instance of human parthenogenesis: a virgin birth! It's a Christmas miracle! [[spoiler:Subverted, since House faked the results to win a bet with Wilson.]]

* "Fetal Position" gives a massive one to House: after an entire episode of insisting upon terminating a pregnancy because he believes it's killing the mother (including referring to the baby as only a fetus), Cuddy finally convinces him to perform an incredibly risky procedure ''on'' the fetus itself. In the beginning of the surgery, House drains the uterus of amniotic fluid... And then a tiny hand slowly reaches out and grasps his finger. And from the look on his face, Dr. House's heart grew three sizes that day.

** Of course this leads to MoodWhiplash and a bit of CMOF later on when Wilson intentionally makes it more painful with lights and loud noises.

* Sorta subtle, but in the season two episode "Distractions," House decides to prove that an old rivals new migraine medicine doesn't work by testing it on himself. First he injects himself with medicine to induce a severe migraine, then injects himself with the new 'cure.' He's right, it doesn't work. He tries to [[DeadpanSnarker play it off smugly as usual,]] until [[OhCrap the migraine hits him full force.]] The heartwarming part? His team doesn't insult him. They don't belittle or react snidely. Foreman gives him a sedative to help him sleep through the pain, and when House soldiers into the next room to discuss their current patient, Chase and Cameron leap up to kill the lights and pull the blinds, so as not to aggravate his migraine. [[DisabilityAsAnExcuseForJerkassery As much as he annoys and frustrates them,]] they do care about House, at least on some level.

* A subtle one in "Autopsy." When they're doing the incredibly risky operation on the POTW, Foreman is the only one to see the life-threatening clot, before it disappears again. House initially questions it, but quickly accepts it. Eventually, you realize that if anyone else had said it, House would never have believed him. THAT is how much House trusts Foreman.

--> '''Cameron:''' Iím re-calibrating the centrifuge.
--> '''House:''' Turn around. Itís a very sad thing, an un-calibrated centrifuge. It makes me cry too.
--> '''Cameron:''' Iím not crying.
--> '''House:''' Okay.
--> ''[later]''
--> You canít be that good a person and well adjusted.
--> '''Cameron:''' Why?

* Doubling as a CrowningMomentOfFunny: [[spoiler:After House discovers Wilson has cancer and has been driven to becoming a DeathSeeker, House agrees to stay with him at his apartment while Wilson gives himself such a massive dose of chemotherapy that it could kill him, even though House disapproves of his self-destructive behavior. At the end of the episode, when Wilson returns to his office, he finds that House had made a slideshow on his laptop with funny pictures of him while he was unconscious during his DIY chemo, wearing various goofy hats while House and a couple swimsuit models pose in many of the pictures. Wilson could do nothing but laugh at the slideshow.]]
