* Pretty much the whole episode of "Dee Gives Birth." From Dennis' genuine concern for Dee when she is in labor (even wanting to be in the room when she gives birth) to the looks on the Gang's face when Dee was getting rolled down the hallway, baby in hand. Set to Kate Bush no less. Later, they even laughed at one of her jokes. Who would have thought that this show could pull off a truly touching moment?
** Same with the couple for who she was a surrogate mother for.

** Same with And at the couple for who she end it turns out that Dee was a actually the surrogate mother for. for Carmen the Transsexual and her husband Nick. While Dee states later on that she hated being pregnant, the fact that she helped this couple achieve their dreams of having a family is a very kindhearted gesture on her part.
** After the credits, there's a picture of a baby, stating the episode is dedicated to Kaitlin Olsen and Rob [=McElhenney=]'s real life son Axel who was born around that time.



* In "The High School Reunion", when one of the Gang's old high school bullies tells everyone that Dennis was not really in the cool group back in high school since all he really did wasa hang out with Mac and Charlie all the time. It really shows that Dennis is friends with those two because he really likes them.
** Not only that, but he spent so much time with them that it only allowed him to put in a token effort at being one of the popular kids. Dennis prioritized hanging out with his real friends over even ''attempting'' to be popular and stroking his ego, which considering the size of Dennis' ego is really saying something.

* From way back in season 1 when Mac accidentally punches Carmen for sneaking up on him, two guys react in disgust to Mac hitting a lady. Mac tries to brush it off by saying that [[UnfortunateImplications Carmen is actually a male-to-female transsexual]]. The bystanders still chase Mac down, because now they see Mac as a transphobic bully rather than a woman beater.

* The fact that the Gang has no problems with the fact that Mac is gay in ''Mac Day'' and are actually annoyed that he's denying his true feelings is surprisingly tolerant of them.
* Just knowing that this group of people who do horrible things to each other genuinely care for one another is a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming in itself.

Added DiffLines:

* There are few moments towards the end of "The Gang Goes To Hell Part 2", when the Gang are trapped together in a small room on sinking cruise ship that's slowly filling up with water:
** Dennis sincerely telling Dee that he loves her before they both go under, even though she blows him off.
** The final exchange between Mac and Charlie before they join the others under the water:
-->'''Charlie:''' I can't believe nobody came to save us. Shall we do this?
-->'''Mac:''' Let's go be with the Gang.
** The entire Gang holding hands beneath the water as they wait to drown. [[spoiler: It's undermined seconds later once they realize they're being rescued and start kicking the crap out of each other to reach the surface,]] but in the moment it's a genuinely sweet, heartfelt gesture that shows the five of them really do love each other in their own warped way.

* An easy-to-miss set detail, but one that says a lot: In later seasons, there is a picture of Ernie, the RecurringExtra whose actor died early in the show's run, hanging above the bar. It's both a nice tribute to the actor and a surprisingly touching gesture for the Gang to make InUniverse. Maybe there really was someone outside the five of them whom they all cared for.

* While it is more underplayed, there's no deny that Mac's father Luther genuinely loves his son and wants to make amends, as demonstrated in "Dennis Looks Like A Registered Sex Offender," [[spoiler: Luther got arrested for violating his parole: he's not supposed to leave the state, but had purchased plane tickets for himself, Mac and Charlie to visit the Baseball Hall of Fame]]. In "Mac And Charlie Dies Part 2", after getting out of jail again, [[spoiler:Luther writes Mac a letter saying he still loves him even after Mac attempted to frame him for sexual harassment and that he's trying to learn to forgive Mac.]]

* 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.]]

* A surprisingly large number of promotional photos have the Gang huddled together and legitimately enjoying each others company.

* Dee and Charlie bonding throughout "The Gang Misses the Boat." It's really nice to see that without the toxic influence of the rest of the gang that the two of them can actually encourage and support each other enough to get somewhere close to normal. [[spoiler: The making out and probable sex may have ruined the relationship with awkwardness, but it was nice too.]]
