* In "Could This Be Magic", an old stage magician who was once an icon of Harry's steals all of Harry's belongings. When he is caught, Mac makes a point of telling the magician in not very subtle terms that he would be more than willing to run him down with his car. While it also doubles as a Crowning Moment of Funny, it also demonstrates just how far Mac would go for Harry.

* In ''Snoop and Nuts, Part 2'', the story of how Buddy and Harry's mom met and fell in love in a mental institution is romantic enough but it also conveys how much all three of Harry's parents loved him. Harry Sr. is made out to be a virtual saint, given that - with the timeline involved - he would have been marrying a pregnant woman fresh out of a mental hospital at a time when both mental illness and pregnancy out of wedlock were looked down upon. Later, after both Harry's mother and Buddy relapsed and were recommitted, they elected to stay out of Harry's life once they got released for fear that public knowledge that his parents were ex-mental patience might hurt his legal career. Even after making contact, Buddy was still ready to take the secret that he was Harry's birth father to the grave, relenting only when he became worried that Harry was depressed over not having a family and was one step away from becoming a criminal.

* In ''Strange Bedfellows'', Dan falls in love with Joan Hopkins - his opponent in the run-off election for a State Assembly post. They discuss him quitting his job to follow her, but the idea is dismissed. As a token, she leaves him her lucky charm - the compass she'd had since she was a Girl Scout. She notes that a compass is special among navigational tools in that it won't tell you where you are but it can tell you where you're going. The episode concludes with Dan running into another of his semi-regular "girl-friends" who offers to take his mind off the election and Dan turning her down, walking off alone as he stares wistfully at the compass in his hand.

Added DiffLines:

-->'''Dan''': You were good, Harry! Very good. [[LawfulNeutral You were impartial. You were fair.]] [[LawfulGood Patient. Compassionate. Understanding.]] And I admired you. (Harry looks at Dan with surprise) That's really hitting below the belt, isn't it?

* Harry's behavior towards Dan in Part 2 of "Dan's Operation". After his [[PartingWordsRegret argument with Dan before the latter lapsed into a coma,]] he watches over him, [[PleaseWakeUp begs him to wake up]] and after he does, he even tells him what a good friend he is and that he loves him. Of course, this ends up becoming hilarious due to Dan's inability [[CannotSpitItOut to tell him he loves him back.]]

* Dan actually had several HiddenHeartOfGold moments. In the episode "Married Alive" he courts a homely rich woman and genuinely falls in love with her. When she breaks it off he feigns indifference, but falls apart when everyone but Harry leaves.

* In one Season 8 episode, Dan began having severe insomnia problems as a result of his guilt about sneaking money out of a charitable organization he had been put in charge of managing by BumblingSidekick / EccentricMillionaire Phil The Bum. A hallucinating Dan starts having a VillanousBreakdown in the middle of his speech at a fundraiser, eventually seeing Phil's ghost on the stage. Dan confesses his wrong doing and immediately begs forgiveness. Phil grants it, saying the whole reason he put Dan in charge of the foundation was because he knew how badly Dan needed a chance to improve himself. Dan promises to change and the two hug.
