** The whole entire scene of Springfield having fun in on the freak snow day. Every single citizen is happy at at peace, ice skating (which Santa's Little Helper helps Maggie to do also while holding her up in the star-shaped snowsuit), hockey, building snowmen. Mayor Quimby declares it the happiest day of the year, all of the citizens hold hands and sing "Winter Wonderland", even when Homer throws a snowball at Mr. Burns, he's not even angry. He has a good laugh at it, saying that he hasn't seen a good snowball fight in a while, calls him a young ragamuffin and has Smithers throw one back.

* Also, the climax of "Lisa on Ice" in which Bart is set to score the winning shot and Lisa is ready to block. While the crowd cheers for the two to defeat each other, they flash back to all the times that they were more than just brother and sister -- ''they were each other's friends'' (Bart helping Lisa get a cookie from a cookie jar which she shared with him, Bart making shadow puppets for Lisa's entertainment, Lisa patching Bart's injured knee, and, most heart-warming of all, Bart sharing his ice cream with Lisa after hers falls off her cone) and decide to throw the game in the name of their friendship and sibling-hood (which naturally leads everyone in the audience to riot and burn the hockey arena to the ground -- except for career criminal Snake, who tears up and comments that [[WhatCouldHaveBeen if pee-wee hockey was around when he was a child, maybe he wouldn't have turned out the way he did]]).
** [[SubvertedTrope Then he just shrugs sadly]] [[MoodWhiplash and joins everyone in rioting.]]

* In "Bart on the Road", Lisa spending her spring break bonding with her father at the power plant. Best of all, nothing ever comes along to compromise it -- Homer never reveals any of the secrets she trusts him with and their relationship finishes as strong as it was in the middle of the episode.

* In ''Recap/TheSimpsonsS17E17KissKissBangBangalore'', the audience is led to believe that Homer has been an oppressive cult leader to his new employees in India, only for it to turn out that, unlike so many others, he's been treating his employees as equals, and giving them the rights and benefits they deserve, such as overtime (though the Indian workers only go along with it because they don't speak or understand English and had to do something to make it look like they understood Homer).

* The end of "Life on the Fast Lane", where, after accepting an invitation from a suave French bowler to his apartment, Marge decides to go to the Nuclear Power Plant, [[Film/AnOfficerAndAGentleman with "Up Where We Belong" playing in the back]], where she tells Homer she loves him, and Homer joyously proclaims to tell the boss that "[[ThePowerOfLove I'm going to the backseat of my car with the woman I love, AND I WON'T BE BACK FOR TEN MINUTES!]]"
** His fellow co-workers cheering for him is a bonus CMOH.
* The beginning of "Bart the General". Bart has been insulting Lisa all morning. Upon getting to school, one of Nelson's cronies takes a batch of muffins Lisa had baked earlier. That's ''all'' it takes for Bart to attack the cronie and he winds up punching Nelson in the face and is challenged to fight. Bart ends up having nightmares about Nelson every night. It's the first sign in the series that Bart isn't a total jerk towards his sister.

* "Moaning Lisa", way back in season 1: Lisa is deeply, profoundly sad. Marge encourages her to fake smile and pretend to be happy--but then when she sees how Lisa is being patronized by her teacher and fellow pupils, she pulls her back in the car, and has one of the all-time great speeches: "If you want to be sad, honey, be sad. We'll ride it out with you. And when you get finished feeling sad, we'll still be there. From now on, let me do the smiling for both of us." Then, when she tells Lisa it's okay for her to not smile, Lisa gives the CMOH payoff line: "I feel like smiling!"
* Near the end of Season 1's "The Crepes of Wrath" when Bart finally understands enough French to tell a police officer that he's being abused by his exchange family and that they're selling wine tainted with anti-freeze and the officer taking him to the station with Bart telling him, "Mon savieur. Vous aurez toujours une place dans mon coeur" (Translation: "My savior, you will always have a place in my heart")

-->'''Homer''': I wonder why stories of degradation and humiliation make you more popular.
-->'''Moe''': I don't know. They just do.
* When Marge gets Mr. Burns to inadvertently sabotage his election chances in "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS2E4TwoCarsInEveryGarageAndThreeEyesOnEveryFish Two Cars in Every Garage and Three Eyes on Every Fish]]", he vows to make Homer's life miserable, to the point that his dreams go unfulfilled.

* When Homer eats a poisonous fish and only has twenty-four hours to live in "One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish", in his last day of living, he goes around to do everything that he could, including having a man-to-man talk with Bart, listening to Lisa play her saxophone, making a video for Maggie, being nice to Flanders for once and spending his last night with Marge. Each scene itself deserves to be a CMOH. But the best scene is when Homer reconciled with his father. He went to Abe, who acted indifferently to him at first, until Homer told him that he loved him. Then, both started crying and ended in an embrace. And for the rest of the afternoon, despite wanting to do other things, Homer stayed with his dad to do some father-and-son things with him that they never got to do before.

** Abe reciting an excerpt of Rudyard Kipling's ''If'', partly because it's some of the only heartfelt fatherly wisdom he's ever shared with Homer, and partly because it shows how desperate he feels in being faced with the suffering of so many people and feeling like he ''still'' doesn't have enough to help like he wants to: in stopping him from blowing his fortune, Homer reminds his father (who raised him as a single dad), that even if you can't always do as much as you want, sometimes, the best you can is still pretty good.

* In "Itchy And Scratchy And Marge", we have the kids of Springfield going outside and enjoying life after "Itchy And Scratchy" has all the violence taken out of it (thanks to Marge), especially when the Simpsons kids explain what they've been doing (Bart went fishing with Milhouse while Lisa went birdwatching with Janey) and Homer quips that they're both great kids. Becomes a slight TearJerker when it's reversed at the end.
** Homer telling Marge [[SoProudOfYou "I always knew you would change the world. For the better."]]
** The only kid who seems to like the change in Itchy and Scratchy is Maggie, who ends up giving Homer lemonade after watching it (earlier, she had hit him with a mallet because of the cartoon's influence).
** A very small one, but still kinda sweet. That complete disaster of a so-called spice rack Homer is trying to make in the beginning of the episode? Marge is using it while cooking later.

"[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS2E22BloodFeud Blood Feud]]", Mr. Burns has ordered Smithers to have Homer beaten up for writing an insulting letter saying, amongst other things, that Mr. Burns smells "like an elephant's butt." When Smithers tries to carry out his order, though, he finds he can't go through with it because Homer donating Bart's blood is the only reason Mr. Burns is still alive. When he delivers the news, at first Burns is predictably angered at Smithers' defiance, but he very quickly mellows, tells Smithers, "You've always been the sober yin to my raging yang," and to a swell of romantic music shakes his hand for a long time until the scene changes.

* "Bart's Dog Gets An F": When Santa's Little Helper passes his final exam, Homer is at first upset that he gets to stay, but his expression quickly changes to one of genuine joy.



* In the episode "Saturdays of Thunder", Homer had taken a father quiz and realized he knew nothing about Bart. So he decided to help Bart make his racing car for the Soap Box Derby. Only for Bart to ditch Homer for a much better, faster car made by Martin. He was initially upset by Homer's disappointment. But just before the race start, Bart saw Homer on the stands, as he proclaimed (with a full mouth) "Do it for your old man, boy!" In the end, after winning the race, Bart presented the trophy to Homer and they both embraced.
** But right at the very end, in a quick blink-and-you-miss-it moment, we see that the whole race was monitored by the same people who made the father quiz. And two men, the father and son he met earlier at the Father-and-Son Bonding clinic, embraced as well upon seeing Bart and Homer do the same thing.
** When Homer at first refused to go to the race, because he was so hurt. He goes into the kitchen, notices the quiz on the fridge, and starts miserably answering the questions. When he realizes he now passes the test, he rushes to support Bart.
** One of the questions was to name one of the child's heroes. When Homer and Bart embraced at the end of the episode the song "Wind beneath my wings" was playing. "Did you ever know that you're my hero".

* The end of "Colonel Homer", where it becomes clear that Homer's inability to pick up on Lurleen's increasingly blatant romantic advances ("Oooohhh... there isn't a man alive who wouldn't be turned on by that... well, goodnight!") has less to do with Homer's typical cluelessness and more to do with his devotion to Marge, followed by Lurleen's final song to him hoping that Marge knows how lucky she is. Actually, no matter how many times Homer & Marge's marriage is threatened, their reunion makes for a CMOH.
