* When the duo watch the in-universe version of "The Lion King," Pinky unsurprisingly bursts into tears. At first Brain scoffs at him... [[NotSoAboveItAll only to become distraught over the the film himself]], visibly welling up with tears. Eventually he starts sobbing, and hugs Pinky for a shoulder to cry on.

-->''"Dear Santa, hello, [[VerbalTic hah hah, narf]]! This year Santa, I ask for nothing, but I wish to tell you about my dear friend, the Brain. He is honest and very hard working, and only wants what's best for the world, but he gets no reward. He is only greeted with defeat. [[TheDeterminator He never gives up]], but I know it must be very hard, so please, take anything that you have for me and give it to my best friend in the whole world, the Brain. Love Pinky. PS. By any chance do you have in that big old bag of yours... the world?"''
** What makes this moment all the more touching is that this is seemingly the first time that Brain realizes and regrets his abuse of Pinky. Even though he doesn't speak, the tears in his eyes say louder than words the one thing Brain is thinking: ''He's my only friend, he's been heartbroken on my account, and all I did was push him away.''

* A bit of a meta example, but in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pqyFXmMCJ68 this video at a comic con]], when the voices of Pinky and Brain, Creator/RobPaulsen and Creator/MauriceLaMarche were asked on what it was like working with the voice of Snowball, Roddy [=McDowall=], they immediately went into talking about how much of a delighting and wonderful man he was. How quick they were is especially touching.

* The scene right before it is even better -- [[spoiler:Brain is just seconds from bringing his plan to total success, until he turns and sees just how sad Pinky is at not being able to give his letter to Santa Claus. Right then and there, Brain effectively decides that if Pinky can't get what he wants, then neither will he.]] Of course, it wasn't so much the letter itself as it was the contents of that letter. [[spoiler:Brain initially passes it off as some stupid letter Pinky wrote. When he actually reads it, he realizes that Pinky was writing to Santa about how great a guy the Brain is, yet he is never rewarded for all his effort, thus Pinky wished for Santa to give Brain anything intended for him, and maybe even the world to go along with it.]] Who knows if Brain was tearing up more out of Pinky giving him the respect he so desired, or guilt that despite his treatment of Pinky, his pal still wrote all that, but, er, [[SandInMyEyes it's just the fluorescent lighting]]....
