* "Handsome Ransom:" Captain Sunshine is a sad, sad man; a former Boy Adventurer who makes Rusty look well-adjusted. He has no sense of personal boundaries or acceptable behavior, he can't connect with people outside of the superhero gig, his beloved teen sidekick is dead and he has no way to cope. He lives with the man who made him what he is today and constantly belittles him. The Monarch slays one of the Wonderboys and gets away with it. Even the townspeople mock him behind his back. Imagine how the brothers might have turned out.

Even the townspeople mock him behind his back. Imagine back. It's sobering to think how the brothers might have turned out.close Hank and Dean came to that fate.

* Rusty's explanation on why he focuses on Dean and neglects Hank in "Every Which Way But Zeus." He's trying to be a good dad, supporting Dean's Super-Scientist dreams, and pushing Hank towards ditching the bullshit Boy Adventurer's lifestyle like he wants. What makes it worse is that he's ''wrong'': Dean's the one who wants a normal life, and Hank loves being a Venture. So Rusty's attempts at being a good dad are only hurting his kids more. Even when Rusty's trying to do right by his kids, he fails.

** There's also the scene where Rusty finds out that JJ [[spoiler: is slowly dying due to literally all of his organs failing, and Billy having just left the room after saying there was nothing he could do to help.]] Rusty went there to call JJ out for giving Rusty a crappy room. JJ is incredibly happy to see his brother and jumps into his arms. Rusty, looking a bit weirded out, catches him. JJ says that being in Rusty's arms feels like home. Rusty asks why JJ is acting his way, at which point JJ tells Rusty what's happening to him. Rusty's lower lip quivers for a moment, then he hugs JJ tightly to his chest and sadly tells him, "I don't know what to say." There's nothing to lighten the scene, either, no jokes or gags or anything. Just two brothers genuinely bonding for quite possibly the first time in their entire lives. [[spoiler: JJ sacrificing himself only a mere few hours later is just icing on the cake. It's probably the most heartbreaking examples of AwTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther in the whole series.]] And then, after all that, [[spoiler: JJ leaves Rusty his entire corporation in New York as well as a swanky new home. It's clear that JJ really, truly loved his big brother.]]
