--->'''Stu''': Pop, I'm so sorry! Can you ever forgive me? We'll get you packed and take you home in no time!
--->'''Lou''': What are you talkin' about?! I'm not goin' home!
--->'''Drew''': Stu's getting rid of his inventions, Dad! You won't have to worry about them anymore!"
--->'''Lou''': Who's worried about em'? I love those crazy toys of his! Why, if it hadn't had been for him blowin' up the house, I'd have never met my Lulu!



-->'''Tommy:''' Grandpa has a Lulu to love and we have a new place to play in...(''dozing off'') and maybe now, we'll get to hear the end of the story...(''falls asleep next to Dil on Lou's lap'')

** Throughout Chuckie's sub-plot of the special, Chuckie wants him and Chas to paint faces on acorns they found in their backyard, but Betty continually sets Chas up on dates with her many single friends. They leave both Chuckie and Chas miserable, the former from not getting to spend time with the latter, and the latter from being roped into activities they like but he doesn't. In the second part, "Fall Stinks", after Chas returns from a hazardous date with a motorcyclist, he and Chuckie are happy to see each other again, and at the end of the third part, "Don't Poop on My Parade", when Betty tells Chas that Argenta wants to cook him dinner that night, Chas declines and chooses to spend some long-overdue quality time with Chuckie, prompting Chuckie to hug him.

** A double-sided one: Stu winds up blaming himself for Lou having to go to the hospital at one point (since it was because of his inventions that led to Lou moving into a retirement home, which led to him getting injured during an elders' dance), resolving to give up his job at the Reptar Corporation and get a "dead-end" job like Drew's, just so that he can have Lou come home. Lou, when he is told this, tells Stu... ''not'' to do that, since if it wasn't for that sequence of events, he wouldn't have met Lulu (as she was his nurse in the hospital).
** Throughout Chuckie's sub-plot of the special, Chuckie wants him and Chas Chaz to paint faces on acorns they found in their backyard, but Betty continually sets Chas Chaz up on dates with her many single friends. They leave both Chuckie and Chas Chaz miserable, the former from not getting to spend time with the latter, and the latter from being roped into activities they like but he doesn't. In the second part, "Fall Stinks", after Chas Chaz returns from a hazardous date with a motorcyclist, he and Chuckie are happy to see each other again, and at the end of the third part, "Don't Poop on My Parade", when Betty tells Chas Chaz that Argenta wants to cook him dinner that night, Chas Chaz declines and chooses to spend some long-overdue quality time with Chuckie, prompting Chuckie to hug him.

* In "Runaway Angelica," [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Angelica runs away from home]] after being disciplined, thinking her parents will worry about her and rescind the discipline. She ends up at Tommy's house and unbeknownst to her, Drew comes over for coffee with Stu and Didi. Watching from the window, Angelica hears Drew say it's nice to get away from the responsibilities of parenthood. She immediately thinks her father is happy she left, bursts into tears, and begs Drew to "take her back." Drew hugs her and assures her that's not what he meant; she'll always be loved no matter what she does. This may be the only time an adult says that to Angelica.

* The song sung between Tommy and Angelica during the All Growed Up TV special, as it shows clips of all the adventures they had as infants. Considering this was going to be the grande finale of the series, it was pretty poignant.

* At the end of the first Christmas Special, a man who appears to be Santa Claus walks through the door to wish everyone a merry Christmas. He give each of the children a gift and notably asking Chucky, who had been afraid of him, if he (Santa) was still scary, [[LickedByTheDog to which Chucky smiled]]. He even gave Angelica a present who, though she had been bad, was trying to do good to make up for it. Santa told her "sometimes trying your hardest to be good is as important as already doing good". He gives her the toy she wanted but also leaves her a small lump of coal inside so she knows that she still needs to be good.

** Tommy, who was actually just being given a bath and new clothes by his mom, decides to help him out while this is happening. When he succeeds, it segues into a funny moment (though still heartwarming) when Tommy tries to tell Chuckie what really happened, but then decides to let Chuckie believe that he's a hero instead.
* There was one short episode wherein the babies try to help out Spike when he's having a bad dream. The heartwarming part is the fact that Angelica [[PetTheDog decides to help too]], without any real hesitation. She even compliments Tommy when it appears to work.
-->'''Angelica:''' Gotta hand it to you, Pickles. You sure do know your dog!
** One of Spike's dreams is about Fifi.

* In "Dust Bunnies" Angelica convinces Tommy and Chuckie convinces them the adults talk of "dust bunnies" are of monstrous rabbits that capture and eat them in their lair in the closet. When Tommy supposedly is "attacked" by one, Chuckie runs away. [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone Horrified]] by this act of {{Dirty Coward}}ice, he immediately makes a beeline for the closet to attack the bunnies hand to hand. Of course there are none, but it was a sweet gesture all the same.

* In "All's Well That Pretends Well", the episode where the kids go to see the Dummi Bears on stage, Angelica can't go due to a cold. The babies return, seeming to have caught Angelica's cold, but they were only faking because they wanted to be with her. Especially sweet when you remember how much Angelica bullies them. And everyone still got to see the show because Stu bought the video of it while they were there.



* In one episode, Angelica gets sick and tries to make the adults think that the other kids are sick instead so she doesn't have to miss a live Dummy Bears show. In the end, however, she's found out and as the rest of the family leaves, Tommy notices that Angelica [[JerkWoobie is crying because she's going to miss the whole thing]]. So what does he do? He and the other kids pretend to be sick too, so that they have to go back home and can keep her company. Angelica is genuinely touched by this, to the point that [[HatesBeingTouched she]] actually instigates a GroupHug (right before pushing them away and pointing out that they'd get sick if they hugged her too much anyway)! Made even better when Stu reveals that he managed to find a souvenir consisting of a full recording of the show, meaning that Angelica and the other kids don't have to miss it after all!
