[[AC:The Late Mr. Kent]]
* Lois confesses to Superman that, despite her teasing, she really did respect and like Clark (who, as the title would indicate, is believed to be dead at this point); Creator/DanaDelany's delivery just breaks your heart.
* Despite how much being Clark means to Superman, he's willing to give his secret identity up to save an innocent man on death row.

[[AC:Heavy Metal]]
* The final exchange.
-->'''Superman''': "Steel", uh? Well, Steel... You're gonna be get this a lot, so you might as well hear it from me first.
-->'''Steel''': What?
-->'''Superman''': "Thanks." ''(Steel rejoices, the two shake hands)''

[[AC:Apokolips Now]]
* Supes' farewell to Dan Turpin: "Goodbye, old friend. In the end, the world didn't need a superman... just a brave one."
* Turpin's tombstone reads as follows: "Daniel Turpin: Earth's Greatest Hero". In a world of superheroes, there is no higher praise.
* Among those attending the funeral are ComicBook/LexLuthor and Lois Lane (who's been giving Turpin so much hard time, as shown in "Tools of the Trade" and "Apocalypse... Now!: Part II").
* Toby Raynes staying at her (implicit) lifemate, Maggie Sawyer's side at the hospital, while Maggie was recovering from injuries. And, later on, at Turpin's funeral.
* And of course, the dedication to Creator/JackKirby at the end.
** The dedication, which simply reads: "This episode was dedicated to '''Jack Kirby'''. '''Long Live The King'''".

Lex can care for someone]]



[[AC:Speed Demons]]
* When Flash and Superman race, they still take the time to pay their toll at the booth, even though the attendant can't see anything except a sudden gust of wind.

[[AC:Identity Crisis]]
* Upon realising he's not Superman, Bizarro stays behind in a lab about to explode, holding it up so Supes and Lois can escape. The last thing he hears before the building goes up is confirmation of what he wanted to be:
-->'''Lois''': You ''are'' a hero.
* There is also this exchange:
-->'''Lois''': You think he survived?
-->'''Superman''': I hope so, he had a good heart.
-->'''Lois''': Of course, he came from good stock.

[[AC:Solar Power]]
* Luminus gives a hostage ultimatum to the Man of Steel, [[IHaveYourWife informing him that he has Lois and Jimmy]] and if he wants them, he'll have to come and get them. Dr. Hamilton reminds him that he's almost completely [[BroughtDownToNormal depowered]] and warns him that Luminus is trying to trap him. [[TrapIsTheOnlyOption Superman's response]]? "And doing a good job." Vulnerable or not, the Man of Steel will ''never'' give up on someone he loves who needs his help.



[[AC:The Hand of Fate]]
* Superman goes to retired superhero Dr. Fate for help when an EldritchAbomination captures the ''Planet'' building and transforms all the employees. Dr. Fate refuses to help. So what does our hero do? Taking the minor bit of magic help given him by Fate's wife, Inza, he goes back to the building. Even Fate was touched by this.
-->'''Superman''': What made you change your mind?
-->'''Fate''': You.
-->'''Superman''': Something I said?
-->'''Fate''': Something you ''did.'' You went back. You didn't stand a chance and you went back. Till then I thought it was only the forces of evil that wouldn't give up. I was wrong.

[[AC:Bizarro's World]]
* Bizarro, finding out about Krypton and in his own warped way deciding he will turn Metropolis into Krypton (blowing it up) actually immediately changes his mind and stops the rocket he had fired when Superman points out Lois will be hurt by the blast.
* Once the crisis is averted, Superman finds a solution: he sends Bizarro to a small, uninhabited planet for him to protect. When Bizarro complains that there's no one on the planet for him to protect, Superman simply smiles and says "Actually, I thought of that" and brings out a vicious little alien creature that Bizarro had earlier 'adopted' and named Krypto... and as he sits there on the ground of his new home, playing with 'his dog', he says probably the simplest, but most heartwarming line he ever uttered.
-->'''Bizarro''': Me am happy now.

[[AC:Knight Time]]
* The end, where Superman tells Bruce how well Tim was able to take care of things in his absence. "For someone who's supposed to be a loner, you sure know how to pick a partner."

[[AC:In Brightest Day]]
* Even though he has defeated Sinestro, Kyle Rayner still thinks he's unworthy of being a Franchise/GreenLantern member.
-->'''Guardian:''' The ring has chosen ''you'', Kyle Rayner.
-->'''Kyle:''' But, I'm just an artist. I doodle in the margins of notepads, I daydream about color form and monster trucks. I live half my life in a fantasy world.
-->'''Superman:''' You sound perfect.

[[AC:[[Recap/SupermanTheAnimatedSeriesS3E8SupermansPal Superman's Pal]]]]
* The ending of the episode. Superman gave Jimmy a watch that sends out a signal that Superman can hear, any time Jimmy might be in danger, saying that Jimmy will need it - now that the world knows that the two are close friends. What really hits the mark was the whole episode Jimmy kept denying that someone as important as Big Blue could possibly be his friend, and Superman told him to find a way to "clear up this whole mess" that started in the news stretching the truth about Jimmy's friendship with Superman - as if they were [=BFF=]s. But Superman pretty much tells Jimmy, "Yeah, you ''are'' my friend, and I'll always have your back."
** This is especially true if you remember the beginning of the story where Jimmy describes himself as "[[IJustWantToBeSpecial just a nobody]]" to Clark Kent. The Man of Tomorrow takes the time to assure his young colleague that [[YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre that's not true]], both as Clark ''and'' as his alter-ego. Moments like this make you realize anew ''why'' they call this guy "Superman" - and it's not just his powers.
* The way the two saved each other from Metallo, and their conversation was also very akin to a Big/Little Brother relationship almost. [[BigBrotherMentor Superman clearly has a knack for being there for teenagers in this show]]. (See the Supergirl example from above.)

to:

* Jimmy gets a moment to show why he's not only Superman's friend, but why he's so well liked in the series. When the Furies start wailing on Superman, he actually rushes forwards in an attempt to help, completely heedless of the danger to himself, only just being saved from being crushed himself by a member of Intergang who'd just undergone a HeelFaceTurn. Doubles as a moment of Awesome for Jimmy, who shows exactly ''why'' Superman considers him a close friend in ''both'' of his identities.

* Both Superman and Lois asking one, at the same time, if the other is okay. And then, sheepishly replying to the other's question, that he/she is okay. All the while, Superman has his arms around Lois, while she initially had her hand on his cheek.
