* A small one, but the titular character of the episode "Big Caesar" is a bit of a [[TheWoobie woobie]]. According to legend, he's a giant, prehistoric fish that has been stuck in the city lake for millions of years, desperate to get back home to the sea. His legendary status causes people to constantly try to catch him, which has included Phil, who came close to catching him but failed, and accidentally left a hook lodged under Big Caesar's fin--and said hook is ''still lodged there'' years later when Arnold and Gerald find him, and was likely causing Big Caesar quite a bit of discomfort. After Arnold and Gerald succeed in catching him, Arnold quickly [[IJustWantToBeFree sees a sad look in the fish's eye]] and decides that he and Gerald should let him go, and while Gerald is upset about it, he ultimately relents and the two release him...[[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming but not before Arnold removes Phil's hook from his fin]].

!!The Jungle Movie
* Everyone is celebrating that Arnold's class won the trip to San Lorenzo ... except Grandpa Phil and Grandma Gertie. It's painfully obvious they're afraid that they'll lose Arnold, just like they lost Miles. Or, they know Arnold wants to go hoping he'll find his parents and are afraid he'll only be bitterly disappointed.
** 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.
** 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 ''[[PrecisionFStrike fucked up]]'' to warrant those reactions.
* When the group is forced to hike through the jungle after their boat gets wrecked, poor Sid's Beatle boots get stuck in the mud and rip, turning him into a crying mess.
* When Big Bob and Miriam realize the kids are in danger their immediate concern is that Olga is with them, no word of Helga. Just, damn...
** Well granted, they do remember her after a minute. Bob himself at least actually remembered her name was Helga.

** It doesn't help that when the mugging happens, he's right outside the building where the episode's titular character, who Sid idolizes, is attending a party and furthermore is outside a window Monkeyman is standing right in front of, albeit with his back turned. From Sid's perspective, his hero let him get hurt either because he heard him and didn't care or because he had given heroics to smooze. Monkeyman's horror when he finds out what happened indicate that he just didn't hear Sid over the hubbub of the party but it's quite frightening to hear a 9-year-old screaming for help that no one gives.

** A small one, but when Helga finally realizes that she could use her boots to pay off the clerk to find Hyunh's daughter, she laments how the universe has, yet again, [[GiftOfTheMagiPlot forced her to make a painful choice. [[WhatYouAreInTheDark She decides to trade the boots away for Arnold's sake]], despite the fact that she knows and tells herself that no one would know or care if she had chosen otherwise - [[ActOfTrueLove and never tries to claim credit]].

* Olga's complete breakdown [[TheBPlus over getting a B+ in one of her classes]] in "Olga Comes Home". When Helga reveals that she was the one who changed her grade, Olga doesn't get angry with her, even though she has every reason to be considering she was torn up about it for nearly three days straight. Instead, Olga reveals that she isn't as happy and perfect as Helga thinks she is and that she wishes that she was ignored by their parents, much like Helga is.
