* Mabel going into a HeroicBSOD because of the unicorn telling her that she's not pure of heart. [[http://oi68.tinypic.com/2uorp95.jpg Her expression]] after hearing "It's not my fault you're a bad person" is absolutely crushing.

** On that note, [[spoiler:his Henchmaniacs. They're still alive and, while they're just as insane and evil as he was, they clearly liked Bill a lot and he liked them in kind (them being among the only beings he doesn't treat like garbage and whom he ''sincerely'' refers to as his friends). They'll all be in for a shock when they realize he's dead...]]

* After the Cipher Wheel plan backfires, Ford decides upon an alternative: let Bill into his mind and use the memory gun to erase Bill for good. There's only one problem: due to the metal plate in his skull, Ford's memories ''can't'' be erased... but it ''will'' work on Stan. But Bill wants '''Ford''' for his knowledge of how to bring the weirdness barrier (which is keeping him locked in Gravity Falls) down, and Ford is nearly willing to give in to save Dipper and Mabel. So what do they decide to do? TwinSwitch. Stan takes Ford's place, tricks Bill into entering his mind, and lets Ford [[HeroicSacrifice wipe his mind]]]].

* As the chosen ten townsfolk form the Cipher Wheel in an last ditch effort to stop Bill, Stan and Ford ''still'' can't get along, which disrupts the ritual long enough for Bill to imprison everyone except for Dipper and Mabel. [[spoiler: While imprisoned, [[ItsAllMyFault Stan laments over dooming everyone because of his inability to let it go and just take Ford's hand, calling himself "a screw-up" in the process, while the latter takes the blame for making a deal with Bill all those years ago]], leading the two to finally bury the hatchet.]]

** Also, [[spoiler: the reaction Ford and Stan have to Bill going after Dipper and Mabel with the explicitly stated desire to kill them, with Ford screaming and banging on the gates of their prison cage, not even trying to squeeze through the bars. It ''embodies'' the AdultFear that your kids are in danger right in front of you and you are powerless to do anything about it.]]
** What started the situation in the first place. Stan refused to cooperate with the plan, [[JerkassHasAPoint blaming Ford for the whole mess and refusing to help him solve it.]] When Ford asks him for a chance to make it right, Stan agrees under the condition of Ford thanking him for bringing him back to their dimension after thirty years. It's very heartbreaking to know that in spite of Stan spending three decades working hard to save his brother and Ford spending weeks in the Mystery Shack, he never once thanked Stan for his sacrifice. Even sadder is that Stan has to blackmail his brother with TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt to actually get him to do it... and even still Ford's gratitude is half-hearted.

** Ford's treatment in general can be this, considering how much of his [[Jerkass less-friendly]] tendencies developped as coping mechanisms from growing up held to the highest standards and, later on in life, having been betrayed (or so he thought, at least) by the three people he trusted the most (Stanley, Fiddleford, and Bill, in that order; Ford didn't know that Stanley hadn't actually broken his project on purpose). And yet, much of the trauma he's endured is consistently treated as superficial and lesser--and even in the end, it's never properly adressed. As Journal 3 revealed, he ended the show hating himself and [[ItsAllMyFault blaming himself for what happened as much as everyone else]].
