* [[TheScrappy Vocal parts of the fan base may not agree]], but several episodes ("Peggy the Boggle Champ" and "Peggy's Pageant Fever," for example) center around the theme of just how much Hank adores Peggy, [[JustTheWayYouAre Just The Way She Is]]. No matter what your feelings on Peggy, you can't help but "awwww" a little at their relationship.

* 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 screen, 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 episode wherein Redcorn is in a band with Dale as the "manager". When the band breaks up and Redcorn discovers that he can sing very calmly and simplistically (like Raffi), Dale is the only one who sticks besides him.

* Even before the main plot kicks off, "Hilloween" is entirely about Hank wanting Bobby to have the best Halloween possible, simply because he believes the holiday is good clean fun and worries that Bobby might soon be too old to enjoy the holiday as much. It's enough that when a fanatical christian woman has Halloween canceled in Arlen and is indoctrinating Bobby into her own little Christian cult instead, Hank dresses up in Bobby's Hallloween costume and starts a protest march that the whole neighbourhood joins in on. Then at the very end, when Hank and the woman each try to convince Bobby to choose their side of the conflict, Bobby chooses Hank. Not because he cares more about Halloween or doesn't care about Jesus, but because:
-->'''Bobby:''' I just want to be with my dad.

* "Of Mice And Little Green Men" has Dale finally discover something is amiss between him and his son, Joseph, and comes to most obvious conclusion....that his wife was [[ComicallyMissingThePoint impregnated by extra terrestrial life.]] Joseph at first is dumbfounded by this accusation, but then, [[LikeFatherLikeSon as a sign of his father's genes]], starts to believe it and even starts adding in other bizarre theories such as the aliens still using Dale's sperm for the experimentation that could still make the two related. Hank and Bobby come to the conclusion the two are very much two peas in a pod.

* In "It's Not Easy Being Green", Hank tries to prevent the draining of a local quarry to prevent Boomhauer from finding out that he, Dale and Bill took his car for a ride in high school and accidentally crashed it into the quarry. At the end of the episode, the car is dredged up and Bobby calls Boomhauer to get back at Hank for pretending to be interested in his environmental causes for the sake of keeping the quarry filled. At the end of the episode, Bobby asks Boomhauer how long they should be mad at Hank, and Boomhauer tells Bobby that life is too short to hold grudges, and says maybe two or three weeks. Bobby tells him that he sees why Hank is always quoting him, and Boomhauer, flattered, decides to bump it down to one week (but only for Hank).

** 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.

* 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."
