* This exchange between Grif and Simmons, while actually pretty funny, comes across as rather sweet if you remember that they use the word hate as a synonym for love most days.
--> '''Grif''': You know what? I ''hate'' you.
--> '''Simmons''': Yeah. ''(choked up)'' I hate you too, buddy.

* In Episode 17, after getting his helmet's visor fixed by Tucker, Caboose thanks him, then goes on to admit that despite their less-than-stellar interactions in the past, he's starting to think that he and Tucker might actually be pretty good friends after all.
** [[MoodWhiplash And then his helmet's radio glitches near the end of his admission]], [[CrowningMomentOfFunny making it come out muffled.]]
---> '''Caboose:''' (''muffled'') ''Tucker! Can you hear me??''
* Episode 18, while a TearJerker Wham Episode on several counts, has some heartwarming moments too:
** After [[spoiler: taking over the now-vacant original body of Dos Point Oh,]] Lopez jumps into the fray to help out the Blood Gulch crew. For all the aggravation they cause him, he stands by them when things get serious. [[spoiler: It's worth noting that he ''didn't'' join his younger counterpart on the latter's attempted rampage on the team earlier.]]
** After [[spoiler: the original]] Lopez gets gunned down by Federal Army snipers, Sarge goes on an incensed tear:
-->'''Sarge:''' You bastards ''[[AFatherToHisMen stay away from my men!!]]'' If anyone's gonna kill 'em, it's gonna be ''ME!''

** Subtle, but it's telling of how much Carolina tolerates the gang nowadays when Grif accidentally fires his new laser weapon at her--she calmly threatens to break his fingers, but doesn't actually follow through. Bear in mind that two seasons ago, she was ready to threaten the whole team at gunpoint to make them follow her orders.

* Tucker keeps, on his person, apparently at all times, [[spoiler: a physical photograph of Junior with his 5th grade basketball team. And regardless of the circumstances of [[MrSeahorse Junior's birth]], he's proud to be a dad. "They grow up so fast!"]]

*** It's also quite heart-warming to see how far she's come from that angry ruthless woman who hated the GBC when she first met them, didn't even bother learning their names (referring to Grif as "Hey, you, orange one", and was even prepared to sacrifice the lot of them on the alter of her vengeance as cannon fodder to create a distraction. Now, she's so close to them that the prospect of losing them is pure NightmareFuel to her. You can't help but feel a little emotional to see how good Church and the BGC's companionship has been for her.

** Carolina's attentiveness to the distraught Kimball; putting a hand on her shoulder to pull her focus back to their surroundings, tugging her toward the ship when she was rooted on the spot, and giving her a hand when climbing aboard.

** The post-episode 20 AfterBuzz interview with Burnie and Miles pointed out something about the final scene in [[spoiler:Hargrove's trophy room. It's filled with things from past seasons, even though he really didn't have anything to do with the events surrounding them. He wasn't there when Epsilon went in the monitor. He wasn't there when Epsilon-Tex was contained. He took these things that were special to the BGC from right under their noses. Grif even mentions that the UNSC 'confiscated' the Grifshot, but then it turns out that Hargrove just took it for the trophy room. Then come episode 20, the BGC comes in and not only takes their history back, but uses the very things the Chairman claimed as his own against him.]] Doubles as a Moment of Awesome.

** For a split second as Carolina is lunging out of the shadows, the lack of light on her armor and the light gleaming off her visor make her look like Tex.

** Heck Kimball line of "[[DueToTheDead Whether or not it was the right thing to do is a conclusion you have to come to on your own. I'll leave it at that.]]" This shows that she can understood that it eating Tucker a bit about losing two of his guys like that (He was hanging his head in shame) and doesn't blame him for it, instead taking a neutral route.
* In Episode 5, Tucker finally snaps at Felix for being so harsh on him and his comrades when he just wants to save his friends. Felix shoots back that the reds and blues are just idiots, and that attempting the mission is going to get people killed. After Tucker brings up that Felix previous statement about not caring if they die, Felix mentions that Tucker will. So the reason he's being so harsh on Tucker, is for Tucker's own benefit, in a round about way.
