* Michael's song parody, "The Diwali Song." The lyrics are mostly dumb, and he's been an insensitive asshole the entire night, but the thought put into it and his passion as he sings (along with Dwight's intense back-up on guitar) show that he really does care about his colleague's holiday. The appreciative response from the crowd shows they know this.

* Despite not willing to admit it, Dwight does think enough of Jim to be genuinely upset when he leaves in "Dwight Christmas" to the point of cutting his Christmas party short, and is very visibly ecstatic when he returns.

* Jim and Pam's vacation at Schrute Farms, especially the scene that shows Dwight reading Harry Potter to Jim, Pam, and Mose. Pam gives Dwight a good rating for Schrute farms. Despite some weird moments, she and Jim really did enjoy their stay there.

* What Dwight does in "China": [[spoiler: He and Pam are fighting it out as building owner and office manager respectively. Pam realizes she's inevitably going to lose because she is just making things up as she goes along, and breaks down to Jim in the stairwell about how she fails at everything. Suddenly Dwight's assistant delivers her a book of building standards that Dwight has violated, and Pam uses that information to force Dwight to go back on his more draconian policies. Dwight talking heads about how he did only capitulated to keep Pam from carrying through on her threats so he can keep leeching off her work. Under this, on screen, we see flashbacks of Dwight seeing the breakdown on the stairs, showing his assistant the law books, and making him give it to Pam so that she would win their fight and feel good about herself. Before he drives away he watches her smile in the rearview mirror.]] Could double as a CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
* In 'Viewing Party' Erin spends the whole episode trying to get Michael to like Gabe. Michael can't understand why it so important to her and when she confronts him he yells "its not like I'm your father!" Erin's silence makes it clear that she does indeed consider Michael to be a father-figure, and when Michael realizes this he starts saying typical dad phrases like 'go to your room'. They are both grinning the whole time and its such a sweet moment for Erin who's an orphan, and Michael who desperately wants family.

* In 'Garage Sale', Michael tries to make [[spoiler:proposing to Holly]] a grand romantic gesture and manages to pull it off beautifully; first, he gets her an enormous [[spoiler: engagement ring after mistaking the three months salary rule as 3 years.]] Next, he brings her on a tour of the office building, reminding her of all the milestones they experienced there. Finally, he brings her to the hall that leads to the annex where all of his colleagues are gathered holding candles and he tells her that this is where their love will face it's greatest test. [[spoiler: One by one, Jim, Stanley, Oscar, Gabe, Ryan and Angela propose to Holly and she refuses each of them. Then he brings her into the annex which he has filled with candles, gets down on one knee and proposes in a yoda impression, as a call back to one of their first conversations, while the sprinklers go off, mirroring Jim's proposal. She accepts, again in a yoda voice]] It's especially sweet to see Stanley and Angela, who usually appear to hate Michael the most, participating in his gambit, and being just as happy as everyone else when he succeeds.

* In 'Paper Airplanes', just after the Tearjerker that is Pam and Jim being out of sync, Pam rushes after Jim. It takes a while before Jim hugs Pam and refuses to let go of her. They cut from this scene to the wedding, until Pam finally hugs back. Then they say "I love you" at the same time, finally showing they got back into sync after all this time. The next episode shows this sticking - Jim stayed in Scranton for Pam's sake. Excuse me... I might be crying a little.

* After Michael acts cols toward Holly in "Business Ethics", he ''immediately'' stops being so when one of the other HR Reps acts like a {{Jerkass}} to her. Then, when most of the employees refuse to continue the ethics meeting, it is ''Michael'' who loudly demands that they do and for the rest of the meeting, he doesn't act out. Letting Holly do the meeting her way.

* In "Baby Shower," after having him try his hardest to help her, Jan orders Michael not to date Holly. Michael's response? [[spoiler:To walk up the stairs, hug Holly warmly, and ask her if she wants to go out. Holly's expression is what does it, really.]]
--->'''Michael:''' I didn't feel much when I held Astrid... but I got a good feeling from Holly.
** In the same episode, Jan finally shows some tenderness towards Michael after months of one-sided kindness on his part.
** And something else also great? Doing his interview with documentary crew, which was after the {{jerkass}} HR rep talked to Holly, Michael decided to tell her "I told you so" in a funny way, but in a sweet PetTheDog moment, ''he doesn't''.
* '"Employee Transfer". Michael is deeply depressed after splitting up with Holly. Darryl, who is often enemies with Michael cheers him up by inviting him to sing a blues with him in his car as they travel home. Doubles as TearJerker and Funny (Michael isn't an apt learner when it comes to singing blues).

* Jim does take the piss a lot, but I've always liked how he does stick up for Michael and Dwight on occasion, the 'Closing Ceremonies' at the end of Office Olympics where he gives them the gold and silver medals respectively is arguably the best example of this.

Added DiffLines:

** Andy has been something of a laughingstock since his failed audition at America's Next A Capella Sensation went viral. He seems to be taking things better now, but it's clear that he's still a little fragile when reuniting with his Office mates (for their part, many members of the Office are welcoming to him, with Phyllis giving a huge hug and Jim making him part of Dwight's bachelor party and defending him for a heckler at a bar). During the final panel, it looks like they'll be drawing a small crowd, and Andy - partially thinking it's his fault - goes to tell the manager that they should call it off. The truly heartwarming part comes when he's greeted by an enormous waiting line outside of the auditorium, with everyone shouting "Nard Dog" enthusiastically, raising his spirits immensely.


Added DiffLines:

** Pam making a huge gesture to Jim, getting help from a realtor to sell their house so that the two of them can move to Austin and he can start working with Athleap.
