*This may be heavy on the Fridge Logic, but hang with This Troper. In "The Dog Eat Dog Syndrome", the MIB are about to torch a diner that a spaceship had crashed into, presumably to remove any evidence of aliens or residue from the crash. But when the owners - an elderly couple - mention that the diner is all they own, K calls for a "Code 2" and instead they Neuralize the couple, covering up the crash as a new facade for the diner. This is Heartwarming not just because the MIB are willing to help the couple like that, but when you think about it they may well have left bits of evidence or items that may have blown the whole {{Masquerade}} wide open. And that's assuming they closed up the hole Drekk melted to get out of the crashed ship, as seen when J and K check up on Elle. And the fact that K referred to the procedure as a "Code 2" implies that the MIB do this often enough that it's a standardized practice.

* YMMV, but in an odd way, the memory J thinks up for Edger's wife after she's been neuralyzed is kind of heartwarming. K makes up that Edger ran off, and she'll decide she's better off, then J adds that ''she'' threw ''Edger'' out because he never appreciated her anyway and now she's going to make a fresh start. Considering what little we see, it seemed like an abusive relationahip, and the altered memory that she took charge and ended may end up empowering her in the future.

[[AC:Men in Black II]]
* After J questions Laura he takes out the neuralizer and tells her that it will wipe her memory. He then accidentally lets slip how lonely MIB life is. Instead of being afraid or alarmed, Laura shows sympathy towards J. J has a moment of weakness and claims that he'll wait until after he's finished his investigation.
** Later when K is back and the pair go to her pizzeria, Laura thanks J for sending some MIB agents to guard her.
* Towards the end, Kay thanks Jay for bringing him back to the MIB, saying "I missed [[BigApplesauce this city]]." It's particularly heartwarming considering the movie was made in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks.

[[AC:Men in Black III]]
* In the third movie, the Colonel's "He showed me how important you two are" becomes heartwarming once you learn that [[spoiler: he's Jay's father.]] Also, since Griffin likely showed him [[spoiler:his own death, that makes everything he does one big HeroicSacrifice.]]
--> "Your [[spoiler: dad]] was a hero."
* J being genuinely overjoyed when he finds K's past self, alive and well.
* The last scene in Part 3 with K and J at the Diner, where K tell J it's been a privilege working with him.
** And before that, the scene with Past K on the elevator up to [[spoiler:the rocket]]. "I can see why I recruited you. You're a good man."
* Seeing K singing The Empire State of Mind happily, which shows that [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold that old curmudgeon]] finally has a genuine happy moment in his life.
* For this troper, when O shows Jay, Kay and Griffin the jetpacks so they can reach Cape Canaveral as quickly as possible, Griffin gleefully runs up to them while laughing like a child seeing a new toy.
