** 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.]]

* The ending of "Any Which Way But Zeus". Generally seen as [[HeartwarmingMoments a happy moment of friends reuniting]], but people often miss seeing the tall bearded man looking around desperately, and we see his chin start to shake from suppressed sobs right before the camera cuts away. Many people don't know what to make of it, [[FridgeHorror then you notice his costume and you realize who he is, Iron Patriot, and you remember the first gladiator fight seen in episode. 21 fighting Ghost Robot who is "working under the hero, Iron Patriot",]] and you remember 21 killed him!

* Doc Hammer and Jackson Publick's [[http://spinoff.comicbookresources.com/2016/01/11/the-venture-bros-creators-beautifully-eulogize-david-bowie/ beautiful summary]] of what the late {{Music/David Bowie}} meant to them. Even if The Sovereign was never the ''real'' Bowie, he was still a big presence on the show, being quoted and referenced multiple times. To many fans, Sovereign is ''still'' one of the first things that comes to mind when they think of Bowie.

-->'''Doc Hammer:''' "Heís more than a human being; heís this thing that weíve all had since childhood. None of us got to call him up and have lunch with him and stuff. And that hasnít changed. That will never change. The music and what he did to style and our hearts is untouchable. Thereís so much of David Bowie that lives in us that never goes away. I think his influence that is immortality. He lives in anybody who has a fucking idea about culture. At least we have that, and we always have that. He gave that to all of us.

So, no he wonít be adding to that anymore. But I am forever filled with so much Bowie that ó Iím honestly stymied. Iíve been stymied since I found out. I just donít know what to do with the information. And Iíve been fully aware of it that weíre not always going to live in a world with Bowie. It was kind of obvious that he wasnít doing well for a long time, but itís stymieing. Losing Leonard Nimoy and David Bowie were huge events in my life. It really is that kind of loss of the father that I chose. You know? These people raised me. I would be a different person without them being in the world. So, itís hard. Itís hard. But I can pacify myself knowing that what heís done is there. He will be affecting lives of people who have never heard his name, will eventually learn his name and have their lives changed by David Bowie. Still.

I donít know if it will ever feel real because his influence is so much larger than we could understand. Like, Iím saying, some 14-year-old next year is going to find out about David Bowie, and his world is going to change just like ours did. And we never got to sit with David Bowie and have him as a man affect our lives. We just had his deeds and the promise of Bowie."

* Gary's character arc in season 5. The very morning after he decides to quit working for the Monarch and work for SPHINX because GoodFeelsGood, he gets kicked off of SPHINX because everyone else went back to work for the OSI. He can't join them due to his past as a henchman so he spends his time patrolling the compound by himself in an empty warehouse. He screws up fighting bad guys and when tries to get recruits, he ends up recruiting the original, villainous SPHINX members and they perform a mutiny on him. At the end of that, he loses the SPHINX airship and, by accident, his warehouse base gets blown up. By the end of the season, he finally gets some long due respect from Sgt. Hatred, only to lose his friendship when they both get manipulated by the Moppets into becoming enemies again. This all ends in a ShaggyDogStory when he then goes back to being a Henchman again as he started missing his old life. The only positive thing about it is that [[spoiler:he finally avenged 24's death by rallying the other henchmen to presumably kill the Moppets, revealed to be the murderers]].
