* ButForMeItWasTuesday: A heartwarming example--Gerald's father tells him, Arnold and Phil (Arnold's paternal grandfather) about his experience working as a desk clerk during the Vietnam War (he was sick wit the flu during most of basic training, so he couldn't partake in any of the combat), and offhandedly mentions finding a fallen soldier and using some spare files he had on him as a makeshift bandage for this big wound he had on his leg. Later on while, the gang's in Washington DC at the Vietnam War memorial for soldiers, they run into that same man (Private Miller) and his family, and the man reveals that if Gerald's dad hadn't done what he did, he would've bled to death. Private Miller explains to Gerald's dad that he's been waiting twenty years to personally thank him for saving his life.

However, he was sick wit with the flu during most of basic training, so he couldn't was unable to partake in any of actual combat and mostly worked as an office clerk--in fact, the combat), and offhandedly mentions finding only real action he saw was when he once happened to come upon a fallen soldier and using who had a really leg wound. Gerald's dad explains that he used some spare files he had on him as to create a makeshift bandage for this big wound he had on his leg. Later on while, the gang's leg--Mr. Johansen didn't think anything of it (he was just helping someone who happened to really need it). Twenty years, while Gerald and his dad, with Arnold and his Grandpa Phil in tow, are in Washington DC at the Vietnam War memorial War-memorial for soldiers, they run into that the same man (Private Miller) and his family, and the man reveals that if Gerald's dad had saved in Vietnam--the man reveals himself to be named Private Miller and explains to Gerald's dad that if he hadn't done what he did, did to help in the war, he would've bled to death.

** Arnold's Grandparents.

** Arnold's Grandparents.Grandparents both tend to be very eccentric and prone to bizarre habits.


Added DiffLines:

* DidntThinkThisThrough: Harold's plan to get a week off from school by intentionally getting himself suspended in "Suspended" proves to have a few holes in it. For starters, he intended to spend most of his time watching TV and eating junk food and didn't anticipate that the programs he wanted to watch would be interrupted by an emergency broadcast or that he'd currently be out of the kind of food he likes to eat. He also tried to hide the fact that he was suspended from his parents so he could have the house to himself, but failed to realize that his parents would lock the front door if they thought he was at school.

** Most obvious is how close the gang is: sometimes they're one huge tightly knit group of friends that hang around together with little to no friction ("Arnold's Halloween"; pretty much any time they play on the vacant lot), while other times they seem to have no problem with insulting/making fun of their friends.

Generally, it's shown that Arnold's closest friends aside from Gerald are Harold, Sid, Stinky, and Eugene.

** In fact, Arnold is probably the character that got the ''least'', and what little he ''does'' get usually pertains to his feelings for his LoveInterests. After pining after Ruth [=McDougal=] for most of the first season, he finally goes on a date with her in "Arnold's Valentine" and almost instantly loses interest after spending time with her. His more notorious attraction to Lila, which began in season 3 with "Arnold & Lila", actually comes to an end in "Timberly Loves Arnold", late in season 5. Tellingly, in "Eugene, Eugene!", which immediately followed "Timberly Loves Arnold", he shows absolutely no interest in her - even in a scene when he and Stinky are watching her audition (while Stinky fawns over her). Lila also has no more speaking parts after this and it's been confirmed that she will not appear in ''The Jungle Movie.''

** The test footage made for ''Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie'' [[https://vimeo.com/36323643 looks even better]] than the first movie.

** The test footage made for ''Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie'' [[https://vimeo.com/36323643 looks even better]] than the first movie. The real footage from the rebooted ''Jungle Movie'' looks even better than that!

** The long gap between the series and ''The Jungle Movie'' has allowed for [[http://sev.h-cdn.co/assets/16/29/768x850/gallery-1469204388-hey-arnold.jpg another]]. Arnold now wears a dark blue jacket over his outfit, the plaid shirt no longer resembles a kilt and he appears slightly taller. Gerald's sweater has been replaced with an otherwise identical hoodie, his hi-top fade is shorter and has a more angled look to it. Helga's nose is smaller, her pigtails are more rounded, her dress is a lighter shade of pink with a darker pink stripe over the red one (which is now at the very bottom) and she appears to be [[ShesAllGrownUp developing breasts]] (as are most of the other girls). Phoebe seems to be the most drastically changed so far; her hair is longer, her top knot is larger and her baggy sweater has been replaced with a white top, blue jacket and light blue skirt. And all of the mentioned characters have different, more colorful shoes than before.[[labelnote: Some other changes]] Sid's undershirt is now a green v-neck, Stinky wears a brown and mustard yellow bowling shirt, Harold's blue shirt is missing the "H" on the left breast area, Rhonda's top has changed from red to indigo and she now wears a red jacket over it, Eugene has thicker eyebrows, Lila's green shoes are now brown cowboy boots, Nadine has visible eyelashes, Grandpa Phil now has a cardigan sweater, the list goes on and on...

** The original pilot episode of the series depicted most of the characters as having differently-colored clothes and gave Gerald a more saturated skin tone.

* DownerEnding: "Arnold Betrays Iggy" and "New Bully on the Block". The former ends with Arnold cutting off ties with Iggy after suffering public humiliation, and the latter ends with the gang being beaten up and losing Gerald Field to Wolfgang and Ludwig. Unsurprisingly, neither of them are very well-liked by the fanbase.

** "On the Lam" has Harold, Sid, and Stinky once again crying together. Only this time, not only does it involve them thinking they blew up a police station, but they all cry twice in one episode! The first time is when they confess to Arnold about their "actions" and the second time is when they confess to the police on live TV near the end.

* EverybodyCries:
** "Ms. Perfect" involves Lila refusing to attend school after being the victim of a prank courtesy of Helga, Phoebe, Rhonda, Nadine, and Sheena. When the girls arrive at Lila's house to drop off her homework, they discover that Lila and her father are suffering from financial issues. The moment Lila's father breaks down crying when he is told he has been rejected as a job candidate, Helga and the other girls are remorseful over their treatment of Lila and [[TearsOfRemorse start shedding tears too]].
** In "School Play", when P.S. 118's production of "Romeo & Juliet" comes to a close, there is hardly a dry eye in the audience or from the school staff.
** In "Full Moon", Harold, Sid, and Stinky are all crying as they confess to Principal Wartz about mooning him in order to clear Arnold's name.
** In "Synchronized Swimming", Coach Wittenburg talks about his emotional experience watching a movie called "Come Back, Wayne", particularly the ending. By the time he has finished talking about his experience to his synchronized swimming team, he and most of his team are in tears. The only ones who are sad but don't cry are Arnold and Gerald, although Gerald's lips do quiver at one point.
