* Also, earlier when Huey protests to Granddad to help him breakout a Death Row prisoner, but he decides to go Ruckus' televangelism event. It turns out that Granddad couldn't help Huey only because he wanted to stop Ruckus and talk some sense into him. Despite everything that Ruckus is, and stands for, Granddad still saw it as his responsibility to help him:

goodbye. [[spoiler:Not to mention that Lando's real father, the actor Billy Dee Williams, has arrived to meet his son for the first time.]]


Added DiffLines:

* Despite Huey's reputation as the neighborhood's local [[ConspiracyTheorist paranoid kook]], Jazmine says that she trusts him anyways. Huey also decides to amend his emergency plans to let Jazmine stay with his family.
** Later, Huey accepts Jazmine's demand to allow her parents to stay in his house, though he admits it was necessary to keep her from crying again.


Added DiffLines:


[[AC:Stinkmeaner: Begun the Clone War Has]]
* At the end of Robert's one-sided fight against the Stinkmeaner clone, with the latter beaten to a pulp and left at the former's mercy, Robert decides to spare Stinkmeaner's life and make peace with him, instead of killing him again and perpetuating the vicious cycle of Nigga Moments.
** Although Robert and Stinkmeaner don't become friends (Stinkmeaner is still fairly annoying), at least they aren't really enemies either anymore.

* Granddad stepping in during the waterboarding "game" when he sees what it's doing to Huey, and then trying to carry him home. [[AwwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther It shows wonderfully that in the end he really does care about his grandsons]].

* Huey spends the entire episode trying to stop Ed Wuncler Sr. from taking advantage of Jazmine, then at the end underscores it by handing Jazmine his scarf once it starts snowing. The same one he's been wearing through the whole 90 degree heat wave. The kid might have some {{Jerkass}} tendencies, but let no-one say he doesn't care about his friends.
* It's pretty minor, but when Jazmine snaps at him and tells him to go away, Huey actually seems genuinely sad. Despite his personality, he's still a 10 year-old boy who gets hurt when his friends get mad at him.

* During the climatic road chase scene, [[BigDamnHeroes Thugnificent and Leonard]] show up to ram their UPS van into Betty's militia bus, thus saving the Freeman and Dubois families. Quite remarkable, as earlier Robert had kicked Thugnificent out of the house for trying to sleep with Robert's girlfriend. Also doubles as an AwesomeMoment.
--> '''Thugnificent:''' WOO! Ride on, old man! I love you, Robert! [[EasilyForgiven I'm sorry old nigga]]!
