* The ending of "New Bully on the Block" where Arnold and the gang end up [[DownerEnding losing Gerald Field to Ludwig and Wolfgang and subsequently beaten up when they object]] is pretty depressing and would especially strike a chord with anyone who was bullied by being beaten up without warning.

* At the end of "Operation: Ruthless," Helga has endured repeated physical injuries and humiliation in an attempt to keep Arnold from getting close to his crush, Ruth. She succeeds, but overhears Arnold say that the challenge just makes him like Ruth even more. Hearing this, Helga's determined expression changes to one of sorrow, and we even hear her begin to sniffle softly as the lights in the park go out around her.

** While the context isn't clear yet, the trailer where Phil's line above comes from shows a scene of Gerald ''furious'' at Arnold for not telling him something and Helga ''ripping her picture of Arnold to shreds before tossing its heart-shaped frame off the back of the boat she's on''. Considering how die-hard loyal Gerald is and how deep Helga's crush goes, Arnold must have absolutely ''[[FBomb fucked up]]'' to warrant those reactions.

** The trailer shows Phil trying to keep Arnold from getting his hopes up.
-->'''Phil:''' This is just a school trip, not about you finding your parents.

** In the Halloween episode, Big Bob almost crushes Helga's head, thinking she's an alien. When he finds out the truth, he is absolutely ''horrified'' and cries "I almost killed my own daughter! I'm a monster!"

** After this debut episode, Lila's HiddenDepths generally don't ever resurface...save for her audition song in "Eugene, Eugene" which is all about being a StepfordSmiler and how it's hard to be "perfect", and how even though she seems happy, she's actually sad. While she doesn't seem to have made up the song, the absolute conviction and emotion in her voice as she sings it suggests that it hits very close to home for her.



* The ending of "Helga's Parrot": [[spoiler:While it was necessary [[StatusQuoIsGod to preserve Helga's secret crush on Arnold]], seeing the parrot get eaten by a monitor lizard was a combination of one of the scariest and saddest moments in the series. The latter is easily shown with Arnold, who, having grown attached to the bird, had a heartbroken stare on his face while Lilah comforted him]].

* "Grandpa's Birthday". Phil believes he's going to die soon because he's turning 81 and he believes in a "family curse" in which his male ancestors die at precisely that age. Despite his grandson and a doctor believing that he still has plenty of life in him, he even goes as far as to gather everyone to witness what he believes are his final moments on a deathbed. Sure, Phil snaps out of it, but not because he realizes that he's being superstitious, only because Arnold corrected his math and pointed out that his ancestors died at 91.
