* In “Message Received”, it's pretty downbeat when Doug is going on about how people ''can'' change for the better, but it's very likely that they won't, and that you just have to learn how to cope with it. Rob lampshades it by sarcasming that this turned into “Doug's Happy Fun Hour“.

** In ''Gold Stars'', for abused kids who don't feel like they've gone down the first "nice" path, what he said about the opposite being "this is all [they] know so [they] have to spread it to others" can hit home.

** As they lampshade at the end, the ''Jermaine'' vlog gets pretty sad, whether it's Doug talking about people he knows who are stuck doing something and are just feeling terrible, or how hard it is to let go when family is being awful, or the stress of caring for family member who is losing their mind/body function.

** Joke yes, but in "BMO Lost", Doug's face crumbling and crying into the DVD after Jason yells at him is quite horrifying.

* In “Sock Opera”, Doug correcting Rob that he doesn't hate everything, he's just scared of everything. Even if it is just a joke, Rob actually says sorry, the subject is changed fast and Doug said a few months later that his method for dealing with anxiety is to make people think he's having fun and not actually being terrified.

* In December 2012, he did a tiny bit passive-aggressive but very positive facebook post promoting the [[WebVideo/HonestTrailers honest trailer]] of ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'' and asking why his own review got yelled at when he said the same things as they did. What's painful about this? He got over ''100'' comments calling him the next Spoony, "the Michael Bay of the internet" and other horrible names, and he soon deleted the post out of guilt. Ouch.

* While also very cool, how upset/red in the face Doug gets in ''The Answer'' about how a) there's still enough discrimination in the world for prejudice aesops to still be needed and b) the people who don't want positive social change to happen and complain at the people who need/want it acting like they're the wrong ones. He even calls the latter a survival tactic that doesn't help you survive.

* His "Where's the Fair Use?" editorial. Not only does he look like he's going to cry, and not only does he look like youtube's virtually nonexistant support system is LITERALLY sucking the life out of him, but when he mentions that despite being a critic for 8 years, the fact that he can bring himself to say he has NEVER felt safe uploading a video really hits hard.

* While {{kayfabe}}, how sad Doug looks at the end of ''Keep Beach City Weird'' when Rob randomly tells him he's “proof of not being perfect” and says he's apologetic but admits he isn't really.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bC3NIdiZF_E What's happening with YouTube]]. As he even says, the company he's in has made a lot of mistakes too, but it's been three weeks as of video upload getting no pay and only doing Critics (that again, making no money off) because of fan demand.
