** Heck, the entire premise of the episode is a meta example. The client is the only millonaire on the show who isn't a corrupt and heartless scumbag, a reminder that being rich doesn't automatically make you evil in this world. That's an uplifting story.

* In "The Carnival Job," [[spoiler: the ''instant'' that it's revealed the mark's daughter was kidnapped, they immediately drop the con and devote everything to rescuing her. It isn't even a question.]]
** Earlier in the episode, [[spoiler: while the con was still going on]], Parker switches out the mark's glasses with ones that Hardison modified with a webcam. When the mark first puts them on, Hardison has a clear view of Parker and, well, this troper is amazed that [[WingdingEyes literal hearts didn't start forming in his eyes]].

** Also, Eliot bonding with the mark's daughter throughout the episode, demonstrating his particular brand of gruff affection while teaching her how to win at the carnival games. When [[spoiler:she's kidnapped]] he initially tries to keep her calm by telling her it's a security drill, but she sees through it and promises not to cry if he tells her the truth.
--->'''Eliot:''' All right, this is not a drill. [[spoiler:These guys are very bad guys, the guys that took you, okay? But I'm coming for you, me, and I'm gonna find you, and I'm gonna bring you home.]] Now, you tell me, does that sound like the truth?\\
'''Molly:''' Yeah.

* There's a bit where [[spoiler: Elliot holds a Dubenich at gunpoint, ready to shoot, all so that Nate won't be able to.]] Yes, it's a bit terrifying, but it really shows what Elliot is willing to do for the sake of his friend.

More, watch closely - his hand is shaking. [[spoiler:Not because he's afraid to kill - which we know he can do without flinching - but because he's been trying hard for most of the series to not be that man any more. A line he is willing to cross again for the sake of making sure Nate doesn't.]]

* The little boy in "The Ho Ho Ho Job" asking Eliot, who's dressed up as Santa but with his customary gruffness, if he's mean or if he's nice. Eliot passes him a present then puts a finger to his lips, indicating that he ''is'' nice, but he doesn't want anyone to know.

** There are also at least two incidents (The Tap Out Job and The Boost Job) where Sophie is being physically threatened by a mark who discovered they were being conned, and Nate's immediate response is to head in there to get her, even if it confirms that they've been running a con. Especially notable in The Boost Job because the mark had pulled a gun and Nate still headed straight in despite the fact that Parker and Hardison were unable to get there to help and Eliot was missing and out of contact.

* Parker bonding with Josie, the teenaged girl who's involved with the car-theft ring, in "The Boost Job." She clearly sees some of herself in Josie, first helping her hone her car-stealing skills and later trying to warn her off of the upcoming job so that she won't go down with the rest of the crime ring. While this nearly blows the entire con and puts the entire team in danger, Sophie points out afterwards that Parker was trying to do the right thing - which means that she's thinking about what the right thing ''is,'' and that's huge for Parker.
