** While there can still be some debates on the topic of Gaz's overall character, this issue does hammer in an important note Jhonen had intended for her; she is certainly not the nicest person by a ''long'' shot (proven by the beginning and ending of the comic), but she will never go as far as to let Dib die despite how much she is annoyed by him.

* Being a fan of BigBrotherInstinct, this troper found Dib's ''mercilessly'' one-sided compassion for his sister in "Gaz, Taster of Pork" almost unnaturally endearing, considering how the show usually is. Not only did he go to incredible lengths to help her remove the curse, but he was also literally ''begging'' Shadow Hog to take the "punishment" for "failing" the trial on himself instead of her ''and'' fighting tooth-and-nail to get inside the fortress to help her. I mean, sure, part of it was to save his own skin after she threatened him, but it's clear the safety and well-being of his sister was his first priority.
--> "[[BigBrotherInstinct Let me through! That's my little sister in there]]! There's no way she can stand up to that giant pig thing!"
** From that same episode, Dim and Gaz walking home hand-in-hand.
* I always found Zim as a smeet saying "I love you cold unfeeling robot arm" strangely heartwarming.

** Of course, then you remember the UnreliableNarrator in play throughout the whole issue, and you realize this is probably all just wishful thinking on Dib's part.

* When Dib [[MakesSenseInContext buys pizza for all the Skoolchildren to save them from being brainwashed by Zim]], they start cheering for him and say he's "not uncool". It's especially nice when you consider [[KidsAreCruel the way they usually treat him]].

* ''Walk of Doom''. After Gir strands the two of them by replacing his guidance chip with a cupcake, Zim stars screaming at him... until he sees poor Gir in tears and, in a brief moment of humility, realizes that getting mad at him won't solve their problem and accepts his apology. Subverted, though, in that Gir was just sad that his cupcake was gone.

* In Issue 14, [[spoiler: Gaz has to keep Dib from going into a depressive state for a certain amount of time in order to prevent him from exploding due to accidentally drinking a substance created by Membrane. It was her fault to begin with since she unknowingly slipped Dib the vile because he was hogging the TV and apparently it was Dib's turn to choose where the family went for dinner night (and of course Bloaty's was selling a pair of multi-pocket shorts that Gaz really wanted), but throughout the comic it's clear her major concern was making sure that Dib didn't explode and only brought up going to Bloaty's about once if any. She pretty much goes all out for this too by having her fellow gamers participate in an elaborate scheme posing as different cryptic creatures in order to make Dib feel like he is great paranormal investigator. And when it turns out that Dib's camera was on the wrong setting and he was afraid Batflaps would call him a fake again, Gaz goes straight to the guy's house and threatens him into giving Dib a good review. Needless to say that not only is Dib still alive by the end of the comic, he is also so grateful to Gaz that he lets her choose the restaurant.]]

** Indeed, Jhonen Vasquez himself found Dib's immediate family to be a little ''too'' cruel to be funny, and wanted to make them just a little bit nicer in the comics so the cruelty would be funnier.

* A "blink-and-you-miss-it" moment from "Gaz, Taster of Pork" when Dib and Gaz are seen walking home hand-in-hand.



* Though they're usually no nicer to Zim, the kids at skool are often quick to call Dib out for [[CassandraTruth accusing him of being an alien just because he looks different]].
