** The lead up to the ending in itself deserves mention as well. [[spoiler: After Jim invites Monica to a convention where her favourite Youtuber, Nik, will be appearing and it goes wrong because of the interference of the child-like entity from the realm of possibilities introduced in the story's opening to ensure Monica and Jim make up, Monica thinks all of the entity's interferences are Jim's doing and ends up lashing at him. Maggy and Smudge call Monica out on her lashing out and go after Jim to support him while Monica goes on a date with Nik, who took a liking to her and invited her to a party. After Maggy has a heart-to-heart with Monica in regards to her paranoia towards Jim, the entity uses Smudge's phone to send a fake text to Monica informing her Jim was injured and she rushes to Jim's, who finds out about the fake text and thinks it was Smudge's doing. Maggy and Smudge leave and Monica tears into Jim thinking he is jealous of her and Nyx. [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy Jim then confesses that while he has issues with her seeing the youtuber, he knows he doesn't have a chance with her anymore and just wants her to be happy]]. When Jim tries to walk away, Monica grabs his arm, causing Jim to wince in pain and reveal a massive injury on his arm that he got trying to warn Nik about the short circuit that would have zapped him had Jim not pulled the controller from his hands as Nik was too focused on the game to notice the malfunction, and then proceeds to tell Monica he kept the injury a secret because he didn't her to think he was making a plan to impress her and ruin things further. Monica is so touched by this that she turns down Nik's party and kisses Jim right there and then. After they make up, the entity trying to get them both together is revealed to be none other than the spirit of Monica and Jim's future child.]]
*** Special mention must go to Maggy. Maggy would tell Jim off for his treatment of Monica at every opportunity and yet she is the first one to speak up for Jim after Monica accuses him of being at fault for all of the interferences the entity caused during the convention and the one to call out Monica on her paranoia.

As a long-runner generally aimed at children, it stands to reason that MonicasGang would be rife with such moments.




* The cover story from the pre-reboot #157 had a {{Jerkass}} womanizer promising Monica to go out for an ice cream and then showing up at the promised spot with another girl. She starts crying and once Jimmy and Smudge learn of it, they go after the guy wanting to know how hard he beat her so she'd cry like that. When he says that he made her cry by purposely breaking her heart for personal amusement...[[PetTheDog Jimmy and Smudge instantly trash the guy and take Monica for ice cream]].

* Jim's passionate speech to Monica in issue #94 about how there is much more to her identity than just her teeth and that he always liked her buckteeth, but admire her for her strength and spirit. It ends with Monica feeling ''much'' better about the issues she's been having for the entirety of the story, and paves the way for them to get back together again.

* The #100 issue ends in the only way it could do such a milestone justice: [[spoiler: Jim and Monica are back together
again.]]

* In the first issue of the new serialization of Monica's Teen Gang, Jim dedicates a whole romantic week for him and Monica, including a Nostalgia Day, an Wonderland-themed date, a carnival date and more. It is very touching to see them being a genuine couple without either being overbearing or nasty to their friends as in Issue #34, and especially heartwarming to see Jim putting his plan-making talents for romantic gestures in contrast to all his sabotaging and manipulation from other stories.
** Jim and Smudge's friendship moment early on [[spoiler: when Jim tells Smudge about him passing a test to study abroad]] definitely qualifies and is a testament to their lifelong bond.
** Because of the intentionally ominous and ambiguous wording used throughout the story, plus a bad feeling on Monica's part after the marvelous week she had with Jim, she (and the audience) is led to believe that Jim is going to die soon according to test results he received early on, further backed up by mentions of his sedentary habits as of late and especially not helped at all by Monica seeing Jim asking Angel to watch over his family in his absence in what is a very serious-looking scene, she gives a heartfelt speech on how she doesn't want to lose him and doesn't want him to die as she confronts him on not telling her anything about it. [[spoiler: In reality, the test results are for an admissional test Jim took for studying abroad while Monica was dating Nick Nope and he'll be leaving for 6 months. Monica then tells him that while 6 months is a lot of time, she tells him to take the opportunity and that they'll still be together when he is back.]]

** [[http://i.imgur.com/oHIccvv.jpg Then he seals the moment by promising to never leave her]]. This is a particularly sweet moment when you think of the many ''decades'' these two have been together (and with the size of this franchise in Brazil, more or less the whole country knows them and knows how much they like each other underneath all that banter), which pretty much confirms Jimmy's promise: they'll never be apart.

* There is a quite well-known story of the 2000's in which Monica is in a very [[TheWoobie Woobie]] moment after having screwed up her date with Luca, sadly remembers all of her ''many'' crushes who either couldn't deal with her temper or just didn't like her back and wonders why everybody leaves. Jimmy (who also wasn't at his best moment at that point) then answers "I'm still here".
