* Liz and Criss adopting eight-year old twins in "A Goon's Deed in a Weary World." It gets even more heartwarming when it turns out that Janet and Terry are Jenna and Tracy in miniature, and Liz, who's wanted a child for some time now, tearfully says that it "seems about right." They appear later in the epilogue during Take Your Black Kid to Work Day on the set of ''Grizz & Herz'' quietly doing their homework, implying that their parents have managed to eliminate in their children the numerous problems that made Tracy and Jenna so hard to work with.



-->'''Jack''': Lemon, there is a word, a once special word thatís been tragically co-opted by the romance industrial complex, and I would hate to use it here and have you think that I am suggesting any type of romantic sentiment, let alone an invitation to scale bone mountain. Itís a word that comes to us by way of the old high German "luba" from the Latin "lubera" meaning "to be pleasing." So Iím going to use this word to describe how I feel about you in the way that our Anglo-Saxon forefathers would have used it in reference to say "hot bowl of bear meat" or "your enemy's skull split.

** The final scene; [[spoiler:we zoom out of a snow globe of 30 Rock and see Kenneth discussing the idea of a 30 Rock TV show with a "Miss Lemon". It seems like a send up of the controversial ending of StElsewhere, in which it was AllJustADream. But then we see flying cars going past Kenneth's window, and realize it is the future; the "Miss Lemon" is actually Liz's descendant, basing a show on the stories her great grandmother told her. She tells Kenneth this and he ([[OlderThanTheyLook looking no older]], by the way) says "I know... and I love it!"]]

** The season five episode, "Mrs. Donaghy," had them falling out after they (accidentally) married each other. HR intervenes with a series of questions that make them realise just how important their friendship is to each other:
---> Have you spent time with each other's families? Have you attended special events together, such as class reunions, birthday or holiday celebrations, weddings, or extended car trips? Are you each other's emergency contacts? Do you ever drink together at work, perhaps while summarizing what you've learned over the day or week? Have you shared intimate details of your fears, hopes, and dreams, both personal and professional? Is this the longest and perhaps most meaningful relationship in your life?

*** Not to forget, in the same episode Avery asks Intoxicated!Liz how she feels about Jack. Her reply: "He's the best one. I don't know what I would do with out him." A bit of a tearjerker for this troper.

** Also from "Mazel Tov, Dummies!", is the scene where Criss manages to get Liz to admit that yes, her wedding day is important to her and she shouldn't hide the fact that she wants it to be special. Among the days Liz suggests she values more are the days TGS got picked up, the day she got an all-pink sleeve of Starbursts, and the day she met Criss.

* In season 5, episode "100" there is a CMOH that goes pretty unacknowledged by the show, the writers and the fans. During a series of flashbacks it is revealed that Jack originally didn't want to fire Pete he wanted to fire Liz. This was meant to solidify the growth Liz and Jack's friendship over the past 5 years. However what no one ever mentions is that the same flashback shows Pete tells Jack that if he fires Liz he will quit... Pete gave up everything for Liz. However an even greater CMOH would have been Liz thanking Pete for the sacrifice he made.
* In the season four episode "Sun Tea" there's two CMOHs. The first one comes from Tracey and Jacks expericences while waiting for their vesectomies. Jack bonds with Tracey's son, who loves his dad so much that he's basing a project for school on him. Tracey's expericence is that he finds he wants a baby girl before he gets the operation because he genuinely wants another child. This leads to Jack stopping the operation on Tracey. The second of CMOH is Doctor Spaceman's reactions to this. He voluntarily stops Tracey's procedure because Jack asked him too and his explanation to why they can't eat a huge meal before surgery is not because of throwing up in their sleep but because he's making them both a huge breakfast after. He almost levels Kenneth in kindness (and oddball-ness)and this episode really solidifies this.

* Regardless of how surreal it is, Jack's conversation with Don Geiss[[spoiler:' soul inside the body of a peacock]] in "Argus" is surprisingly touching. Jack emotionally tells him that he was the father he never had and he lays a sympathetic [[spoiler:wing]] on his lap.
