* Pretty much every scene between Claudius and Augustus.Standing out from most of his family, Augustus openly loves his grandson (not even caring too much or blaming the boy when Claudius's disabilities ruins his point of a speech trying to get several nobles to marry so to father better children for Rome) and is the only one not to underestimate him. Even in Claudius's final hallucination, amongst the others more cynical and uncaring speeches to him, Augustus alone happily congratulates him on his successes and becoming emperor as he suggested he might all those years earlier.

* Claudius' final conversation with Brittanicus, where he reveals his grand plan for his son and that he ''does'' love Brittanicus. When Brittanicus admits that he doesn't want to follow Claudius' plan for a Republic and would rather fight Nero than run, Claudius decides to respect his wishes and tries to make his son the next Emperor. He knows his son will die, but lets Brittanicus make his own decisions on his future. The two part on friendly terms after years of hostility. For all of Claudius' loneliness at the end of his life, he manages to at least patch things up with his son and Brittanicus ends up mourning his death after all.

The Guardsman thinks he's one of the assassins, before his Sergeant stops him, helps Claudius to his feet and treats him very kindly, even ordering two of his men to go with him and keep him and his wife safe. ..Then they figure out they can keep their jobs by making him Emperor and it all goes sideways .

* Claudius doesn't show any anger when Appius Silanus tries to murder him. He just wants to know why on earth Silanus would kill the man who raised him up. When Silanus (truthfully) starts badmouthing ''Messalina'', on the other , he flies into a royal rage. Poor Clau-Clau-Claudius actually becomes intimidating.
