* At one point in the movie T.J. and principal Prickly are trapped in a cage together. An argument erupts between the two and T.J. accuses Prickly of not caring about the children of his school at all. Prickly is genuinely outraged and reads T.J. the riot act. It ends with a brief speech about how much the children's wellbeing means to him. He knows that their carefree childhood will one day be over so he feels it's his job to ensure they have the opportunity to enjoy as much as possible. It's kind of touching to see him so passionate about the whole thing when the series so often portrays him as mean or apathetic.

[[AC:The Biggest Trouble Ever]]
* The fact that Miss Finster is actually concerned at all about the Recess Gang being split apart by force, which is a rather extreme punishment for the statue's destruction, despite the fact that she has been the main antagonist to the group. She worriedly asks T.J., "Any chance you have a plan for ''this'' one, Detweiler?"

* The entire episode, non-stop. Gus' family has moved a lot so he finally gets a chance to get a school picture, and wants to make his family proud by staying clean. T.J. and the others work together to keep him clean and give him closure, Randall surprisingly (and unintentionally) calms him down with his harmonica music, and by the end of the episode, [[spoiler: he sacrifices his clean self for T.J.]], not to mention [[spoiler:the letter T.J. wrote to his dad about picture day, and how he's proud to be his friend]]. It's an AffectionateParody of ''SavingPrivateRyan'' and it works.
-->Gus' Dad: That's my son, right there in the middle with his first class picture ever. If you asked me, soldier, well... I'd say he's never looked better.

* When TJ asks Miss Finster why she hasn't tried to stop Principal Prickly leaving, when she's clearly upset about it, she explains that she's kept silent because Prickly has wanted to be a high school principal for a long time, and when you care about someone, you have to think about their happiness before your own.

** Genuinely? This troper thought it was just a baby crush, or pet crush, or whatever it's called. Mikey couldn't have at least subconsciously not known that Ms. Salimony was far too old for him.

** Ms Salimony whispers "see you in middle school" at the end, which means she's likely to become a CoolTeacher to him by the time he gets there.




to:

** And when it's recapped in the "Miracle on 3rd Street" movie, Miss Grotke is moved to tears at it.




to:

** What's more is that when you see the kids playing outside at the end, the Ashleys are seen in the background. That means they too were moved enough by the gesture.

* Even though T.J. and Spinelli were grossed out after their TestKiss, their kiss was still an adorable scene (And it's also implied that they really ''did'' enjoy it).
