** One shot lingers on Mac looking very euphoric. There's a good chance Rob [=McElhenney=] wasn't acting when he made that look.

** When Charlie gets the new rat stick, he's almost ''crying'' as he says "I don't know what to say 'cause no one's ever really, um..." He's too choked up to finish the thought, but it's heavily implied that this is the first time he's received gifts that mean something to him. An earlier episode even revealed that the "presents" he received each Christmas were largely random items given to him by the various men who came over that day to have sex with his mother. In short, the Gang are the only people (besides his mom) who have ''ever'' tried to understand Charlie and his bizarre quirks enough to do something like this.

* In "The Gang Gets Stranded in the Woods", it's revealed that Frank had arranged for Mac to finally get to meet Chris Utley at the Animal Rights banquet. It's undermined by the fact that Mac, Dee, and Frank are still lost in the woods while Dennis and Charlie are partying, but it's still nice to see that he remembered and genuinely wanted him to meet his hero.

* "The Gang Wrestles for the Troops": Dennis, Mac, and Charlie put on the wrestling match not for attention or personal gain, but out of a genuine desire to show appreciation to the American troops.

** Similarly in "The Gang Goes to Hell: Part 2", Dennis apparently came up with the "oi oi oi!" thing as a way to calm Charlie down when he's having a panic attack.

** Throughout the episode, the group tries to give Charlie nice things, such as a trip to the movies or a day at the spa, but they fail due to Charlie's own idiocy. Though they're tempted to [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere give up as they always do]], Dee, Dennis, and Mac [[{{Determinator}} refuse to stop trying]]. Eventually, they sneak into Charlie's apartment and read his "dream book," a bizarre collection of odd pictures and misspelled words that contains the things he fantasizes about. At the end of the episode, they reveal that they painstakingly recreated these items, including a roast chicken wearing denim shorts, a [[ToothyBird bird with teeth glued on the beak]], and three different types of "worm hat" (a hat made from worms, a hat that makes the wearer ''look'' like a worm, and [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs a hat for a worm]]). Watching Charlie light up as he he finally sees his dreams come true is adorable.
** When the Gang first starts reading the dream book, Dennis and Dee remark that it makes no sense and they should throw it away. Mac agrees, but then points out that they have to fight that instinct for Charlie's sake. It's the closest that he (or any of the group) ever comes to a lasting HeelRealization, and it's all for Charlie.



* "The Gang Tries Desperately to win an Award" has the Gang admitting that they don't need an award to feel special. They decided that an award doesn't matter as long as they like themselves.

* When Charlie fainted in Chardee Macdennis 2, both Dennis and Dee were there to see him recover and said that they were worried and glad he survived. [[spoiler: This being Sunny, it is immediately ruined by the two telling Charlie that his team lost because he cried immediately when the Waitress started talking and they burn his team's flag while smashing the figures.]]

* In "Flowers for Charlie," Charlie [[FlowersForAlgernonSyndrome believes he's becoming smarter]] after taking pills from some scientists. He becomes a huge jerk and treats the whole Gang like garbage. Despite this, the Gang still goes to the culmination of the project, where Charlie reveals his "invention" (a device to let cats talk to spiders), and the scientists themselves reveal [[PlaceboEffect it was all a sham]]. The pills only made Charlie ''think'' he was getting smarter, and the actual experiment was on the details of that process. Rather than get angry at Charlie for being such a {{Jerkass}}, though, Dennis, Mac, Frank, and Dee make jokes about the situation (and even laugh at one of Dee's!) while trash-talking the scientists, and Charlie happily joins in. The episode ends with the group, reunited without any bad feelings, leaving the auditorium to watch ''Film/PoliceAcademy'' together. Who knew that StatusQuoIsGod could be such a heartwarming trope?
