** 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.

** A more recent one was the season four Valentine's Day episode that had Liz scheduling a root canal for V-Day, because she didn't need a man in her life. Except the dentist's office requires someone to drive Liz home since she's going to be on anesthesia (and she does exhibit some [[IntoxicationEnsues fun side effects]], including cuddling the office plants and mistaking the dental assistants for her three ex-boyfriends). They call her emergency contact - Jack, who has been attempting to romance a political pundit who won't take him seriously - and he immediately drops everything to come pick Liz up and take her home. * There is something about this exchange that this troper has always liked, especially between Jack and Nancy.

* When Liz got promoted in "Succession," she told Pete she would promote him too and give him a big raise.

** Also in the finale, Tracy spends almost the whole episode looking for Kenneth/trying to get in touch with him which is made 100x more difficult since [[spoiler: Kenneth is president of NBC.]] It seems like Tracy is just being his usual needy self. But when he finally finds him, it's so that Tracy can release Kenneth from his promise of always being there for Tracy, knowing that otherwise, Kenneth might spend more time and effort on Tracy rather than on more important things.
