** When Didi tells Chaz that he should begin sharing the memories of his wife, Melinda, with Chuckie, Chaz simply replies, "But...I'm just afraid he's going to miss her." But when Chuckie found Melinda's picture earlier, he didn't realize she was his mom; he instead knew her as "the nice lady from my dreams." With this in mind, Chaz's comment seems to be less about protecting Chuckie, and more about how even around two years after Melinda's passing, Chaz still cannot bring himself to accept what happened to her.

**Other strong examples of this would include "The Unfair Pair" when she tells Phil and Lil that there's one favourite kid in each family entirely because they were leaving her out. Or "The Alien" when she told the babies that Chuckie was an alien because she was too big to fit in the new playhouse. It might be a bit of an exaggeration because she's only three, but Angelica might feel that she's too young to be with the adults but too old to play with the babies. Later on, the babies seem to welcome Suzie Carmichael into their group sooner than Angelica. After Rugrats in Paris, she's also the only one of the main kids without a sibling.

* Chuckie spending an entire episode trying to release his "sea monies" into the ocean, only to become heartbroken when he actually pulls it off. Knowing that they probably died ten minutes into the episode doesn't make it any less sad to hear him call out good-byes to them.

** In "Chuckie's Wonderful Life", Chuckie has a dream where he was never born. Chaz lives in squalor and uses a hand puppet to keep him company. Most of the dream world is over the top, but Chaz's downward spiral after his wife's death is believable.

* Acorn Nuts and Diapey Butts, the scene at the cemetery.
* The movie's climatic scene involving monkeys, rain, and bananas.
-->'''Tommy:''' Dil wants monkeys, monkeys want their nanners. EVERYBODY GETS WHAT THEY WANT!
** Tommy's HeelRealization straight afterwards as Dil starts crying, albeit for once not usual infant screaming, but genuine terrified sobbing. He drags Dil into shelter and dotes over him until he falls asleep.

* For all of Angelica's meanness to the babies, she just wants to be included in their activities but doesn't know how. This becomes apparent when in "Home Movies", she invites the babies to draw their own home movies. When it's Tommy's turn, he talks about all the fun he has with his parents and friends... but not Angelica. She interrupts his home movie with her own, explicitly stating how she was going to stomp them because "they left her out". It's meant to be seen as her being a bully again (especially since her home movie was about her getting all sorts of sweets and becoming a giant) but that one statement reminds us that she's just a girl that doesn't like to get left out.

* "Two By Two"'s ending, [[GainaxEnding slightly confusing as it is]], deserves mention. Context: after Grandpa Boris tells the kids about the story of Noah's Ark, Angelica (after hearing a weather report) convinces the babies that it's going to rain for 40 days and nights in real life. As such, they make an ark of their own (out of cardboard boxes in the backyard). By the end of the episode, all of the babies are in said ark, but there's no more room for Angelica (since she's the only one who isn't paired with anyone else). Just then, the weather starts to take a turn and, as Angelica tries telling them she made up the thing about the rain, [[TemptingFate it starts to pour]]. And so, the episode ends with Angelica trying one last time to get into the ark... which transitions back to the Noah's Ark story, with Angelica being left behind, along with some ducks. [[SandInMyEyes The rain makes it hard to tell if Angelica is crying or not in the last shot.]]

** Even worse? In Boris' telling of Noah's Ark, all of the babies (and Angelica) are given roles. Angelica's role? '''Noah's ''wife''.'''
