** The whole episode, really. As mortified as Hank and Peggy are to find out that Tammy's actually a hooker, they've come to care about her too much to let her go back to Oklahoma City. Hank buys off her pimp and tells him to get lost, while Peggy promises to help Tammy get a G.E.D. so she can start building a brighter future for herself.

As The Hills are mortified as Hank and Peggy are to find out that Tammy's actually a hooker, but when Tammy sadly resigns herself to returning with her pimp to Oklahoma City, Hank and Peggy realize they've come to care about her too much to let her go back to Oklahoma City. back. Hank stands up to the pimp, buys off her pimp him off, and tells him to get lost, while Peggy promises to help keeps helping Tammy get a G.E.D. so she can start building a brighter future for herself. Things apparently worked out for Tammy, as we see her attending Luanne's wedding much later on.

* A blink and you'll miss it moment from '''Manger Baby Einstein''' where Hank talks to Luanne about how she's a mother now and notes that even if the country ran mainly on propane [[ItMakesSenseInContext and he were to become the vice president]], he would still be a father first. After Luanne notes that he's an uncle second (actually fourth), she gives Hank a hug, to which not only does he pat her back, but if you not the picture on the right side of the scree, he even smiles. Given how in the early seasons he would more than often direct her to Peggy for a hug (given how uncomfortable he is for the most part about physical contact), it really shows how far he's come with her since the Pilot.

* The end of "Boxing Luanne", when Luanne is getting pounded by Freeda Foreman and all the skeezy men who have spent the episode drooling over her body start cheering her on for real.

* Hank isn't the sort to step out of his comfort zone very often, so it's always great to see him do it to help someone who really needs him. Case in point: "Pretty, Pretty Dresses," where he spends all his vacation time pulling suicide watch for a horribly-depressed Bill. Bill later snaps and starts dressing up as his ex Lenore, and Hank rescues him from an extremely awkward situation at his Christmas party by donning a dress of his own, and standing in for Lenore so Bill can finally vent to "her" and start getting over his pain.



* In "Harlottown", Peggy uncovers Arlen's past as a den of prostitution, and wants to use it as means to celebrate the town's history. The self-serving city manager, however, wants to turn Arlen into [[ThemeParkVersion a tourist trap]] for prostitution, going so far as to attract the Adult Video Awards. Hank, while driving out of town, picks up one of the adult film actresses, who regrets the life she choose. Hank reassures her, by telling her that even the prostitutes who built Arlen were able to clean up their act and make it into a real community. The actress not only turns a new leaf, but stops Arlen from descending into sleaziness.
* In "Hank's Back Story", Hank's brotherhood with his support group of people that suffer Diminished Gluteal Syndrome, especially when one of the guys throws his own gluteal prosthetic to Hank so that he can finish thw lawn mower race

sleaziness, and the final scene shows that she's become a friend to the Hill family.
** The way Hank explains why he's helping the two actors is rather sweet and funny, considering you can tell he's not totally comfortable with it:
-->"Peggy, they tried to fix an engine problem by changing a tire. They'll ''die'' out here."

* In "Texas City Twister", Hank has been called out by Peggy for being way too stiff and way too in control of his emotions. They spat and Hank tells her to go to hell, but just after she leaves a tornado is announced to be heading toward the trailer park (where Hank was making Luanne go back to). What does Hank do in response? Rush to the trailer park just to let her know he was sorry. Even when the tornado hits, Hank holds onto a telephone pole just long enough to let go of his emotions and let Peggy know how much he loves her.

* For all the hate he had for Bobby dating Connie, Khan had a few PetTheDog moments with Hank's son. One that stands out is the episode where Bobby and Connie are trapped in a cave, Hank and Khan go in after them. While Hank is pre-emptively trying to apologize in case Bobby and Connie have sex, Khan shrugs it off saying "I'm not worried about Bobby, he's a good boy."

* In the episode where an old flame of Boomhauer's was going to marry his loutish brother (voiced by BradPitt), Hank confronts Boomhauer on suspicion that he was trying to sabotage their relationship and asks him straight out if he was. Boomhauer says no, and that is all Hank needs to hear to believe him absolutely. It's a wonderful reminder of the power of a true friendship.

* The end of the two-parter "Returning Japanese". Cotton makes peace with the woman he fell in love with after WorldWarII and with whom he fathered Junichiro, and just before they leave for the airport, Cotton (of all people!) encourages Bobby to say goodbye to the little Japanese girl he became friends with during his vacation.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGKEpf8FUio This scene from earlier in the episode]]. Cotton shows up at Hank's door so the two can shoot down a Christmas tree, something they do every year, only for Hank to tell him that Buck Strickland already gave him a tree. Cotton actually looks almost ''heartbroken'' that Hank doesn't want to share this moment of father-son bonding, only to quickly hide his emotion and try and lure Hank - "Bah! Only a man with a [[RunningGag narrow urete]] would think that skinny stick was a ''tree''!". It's one of those moments in the series that show deep down inside, Cotton truly cares about his son.

** The actual heartwarming moment comes when Bill gets back in the game to re-tie the record. All the people who were skeptical about his abilities earlier in the episode (Including the entirety of the highschool student body) join together in cheering him on as he [[HeroicRROD tears his body to shreds]] to get a touchdown. Later on, during TheStinger, Bill is struggling with working out while listening to a sports program reporting on his game. Upon hearing one of the jockeys calling him [[BadAss "Uptown all the way"]], he gains a second wind with a wide smile on his face.
