* FosterKid: Averted with Arnold and Willis, which Willis points out to both Sam and a foster kid named Kurt in one of the final episodes of the series. Kurt had never had a stable family, always having to leave after a year, and was living in a group home at the time of the events of this episode. Willis explains that had Mr. Drummond not taken him and Arnold in and adopted them, this would have likely been their fate.

Kurt -- with whom Sam had gotten into a fight at the Hamburger Hangar early in the episode -- had never had a stable family, always having to leave after a year, and was living in a group home at the time of the events of this episode. When Sam continues to balk about Kurt, Willis explains that had Mr. Drummond not taken him and Arnold in and adopted them, this would have likely been their fate.

* BigDamnHeroes: Phil, in several of the most memorable episodes where either his own children or close friends of his children were in deep trouble. He once stopped a child sex fiend from making his move literally seconds before he was going to rape a sedated Dudley. Another time, he arrived in time to interrupt a sociopath from raping Kimberly, and a year later he saved Sam from a family who was trying to adopt a "StreetUrchin" to replace their son who died in an accident months earlier.
