** Almost any episode/scene in which General Treister appears has a tendency to lapse into this, whether it's his grandstanding at the O.S.I./Guild summit and naming the delegates after pop culture figures, challenging Hunter Gathers to a wrestling bout in lieu of "negotiation" for a prisoner, or piloting the O.S.I. hoverquarters clothed only in a toga made from the American flag. That these events are not lampshaded in any way is a testament to the bizarre nature of the Venture Bros' universe.

** The Monarch ''finally'' telling off those creepy little Murderous Moppets in Season Four and scaring the dog squeeze out of them with his threats.
** Rusty got one where, [[spoiler:after working with his fellow ex-boy adventurers to track down their therapist's killer, realizes that for all the crap he went through due to his dad, he's been doing far better than them.]]
** Henchman 21 fights Brock Samson one-on-one...and ''lives.''
*** Not only that, but 21 [[spoiler: seems to have gained Brock's respect, as he teamed up with 21 to fight Monstroso.]]



** After the death of [[spoiler:Hank and Dean Venture]] at the end of Season 1, we get the [[spoiler:[[http://www.adultswim.com/video/?episodeID=1d1d140aa4702e26bb03d600ef1e320f Hank and Dean Death]]]] Montage. The sequence CrossesTheLineTwice a dozen times in a row in rapid succession and alludes to several [[NoodleIncident Noodle Incidents]] for good measure along the way.
** The Monarch's rant [[spoiler: to the "misguided" teens in prison. Like most of the humor in this show, it CrossesTheLineTwice and hilariously so.]]

* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming:
** [[Heartwarming/TheVentureBrothers Has its own page.]]
** At the beginning of season four, after prolonged absence, Hank sees [[spoiler:Brock, he hugs him and says, "Why did you leave me?" Brock replies, "Hank, I'll never leave you."]]
** Dean to Triana: "Can we talk?"
** Rusty Venture's attitude to Dean in season 4, [[spoiler:probably as a result of his inability to bring his sons back to life any longer in the event of their likely deaths]], seems genuinely fatherly at times. His attempts, however misguided, to help Dean with his superscience career in "Perchance To Dean," and particularly in "The Revenge Society" when the two of them are locked in the Panic Room and Rusty helps Dean get over his fears, are surprisingly genuine examples of Rusty's caring for his sons. Even Hank's rebellion against his father's "strict rules" is indicative of the fact that Rusty is trying to keep him safe--although it would be a betrayal of Dr. Venture's character to portray his inability to connect with Hank on an emotional level as anything but cynical irritation. He's not even dragging them into dangerous adventures anymore.
** The season 4 mid-season finale when S.P.H.I.N.X members are listing the grievances they've suffered to further their goals. Most are petty or insane, but Brock's biggest sacrifice? "Living next to the boys for a year and not being able to tell them that they're safe".
** In season 4 “The Better Man”, Jefferson Twilight’s childlike joy at his new-found magical powers is really quite touching.
** In "Every Which Way But Zeus" Rusty explains his apparent favoritism of Dean over Hank, [[spoiler: Turns out it's not favoritism at all, He's actively trying to protect Hank and steer him away from the life they lead because he reminds Rusty of himself. He feels that Dean can handle it because "he ''believes'' this crap!" and thinks he's a better successor to the legacy of Jonas Sr. than Rusty himself.]]
** When Hank and Dean let Dermott in on their "Go Team Venture!" in the season 4 finale, [[spoiler:despite the fact that none of them know he's actually their half-brother.]]
** Rusty and Billy bonding on their adventure to find the Orb in the ep ORB. Remembering that Billy always idolized Rusty and wanted to be an adventurer when he grew up helps reinforces this.
