* ''The Conqueror'': four of the Planeteers are fooled by [[BigBad/WesternAnimation Zarm]] and choose him over Gaia. [[Tearjerker/CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers Tearjerker]] ensues - until Gaia comes to the kids as a mortal and shows them what Zarm is really like. The scene where they apologize and turn away from Zarm [[Awesome/CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers definitely makes up for that]], though. Especially that part where Gaia hugs Gi and kisses her forehead.
* ''Volcano's Wrath'': watching the Planeteers rush off to their mission prompts [[MotherNature Gaia]] to say: "[[TeamMom Children.]] [[SoProudOfYou They make a mother proud]]".
* ''Two Futures, Part 2'' has [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Wheeler]] showing fondness for Gaia, and the other Planeteers caring about their friend. To be more precise:
** Wheeler ends his trip to [[Tearjerker/CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers the dystopian]] [[NightmareFuel/CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers future]] by jumping into the Time Pool and yelling about wanting everything back the way it was... then adds this little gem:
-->'''Wheeler:''' [[MakesSenseInContext Gaia, please be ALIVE!]]
** When Wheeler stops his more recent past self from stopping his more distant past self from accepting the Fire Ring, and explains the {{Aesop}} to him(self):
-->'''Rebelling!Wheeler:''' I never thought of it that way.\\
'''Reformed!Wheeler:''' I know. I just hope it's not too late to save Gaia.
** And finally, after Captain Planet changes the villains' time trip's direction:
-->'''Captain Planet:''' They're in for a real future shock.\\
'''Wheeler:''' Can't be any worse than the shock I had there.\\
'''Gaia:''' Don't worry, Wheeler.\\
'''Wheeler:''' GAIA! You mean you're not...?\\
'''Gaia:''' Now that you're a Planeteer again, I feel just fine.
** Also, the scene when the other Planeteers appear and reveal what they did to save Wheeler from the cave-in; especially in Linka's case.
-->'''Linka:''' I would do the same for anyone... (''suddenly clings to Wheeler'') Oh! You had me so worried!
* ''Heat Wave'': upon returning to Hope Island, the Planeteers find Gaia very sick and weak. The interesting thing is that the one to cradle her caringly is neither any of the {{NiceGuy}}s: Ma-Ti or Kwame, nor any of the girls. It's Wheeler.
* ''Summit to Save Earth, Part 2'': Captain Planet and Gaia don't have much screen time together, but in this episode, while getting rid of Zarm, the Captain manages to give Gaia a quick, yet very affectionate hug, which doesn't go unnoticed by Kwame and Wheeler.
* ''The Great Tree Heist'': Captain Planet is so badly injured by Greedly that he is unable to be summoned, leading to the Planeteers thinking he's dead. Later, Captain Planet is summoned in time to save the Planeteers from being killed by Greedly. After getting them to safety, Gi and Linka jump out of the Geo-Cruiser and run into his arms. Captain Planet hugs them back, looking like the happiest person alive.
* ''Missing Linka'': Linka spends most of the episode running around by herself. While she's inside a mine, she falls and gets knocked unconscious. She's saved by a mysterious bundled stranger (not for the first time that day either), who runs away after she comes to. It's later discovered that the mystery man is none other than [[spoiler:Wheeler. She even kisses him for the first time to thank him]].
* '''Teers in the 'Hood'': Wheeler not only talks Gi out of outright killing the guy who shot her friend, but even hugs her as she is crying into his chest.
* ''Dirty Politcs'': in the possible future, we see MAL gaining a MoralityPet in Dr. Blight's daughter Betsi, who is by far sweeter and more heroic than her mother to the point that she actively tries to help the present and future Planeteers stop her mom from becoming president. MAL tries to pull a HeroicSacrifice at one point to save Betsi [[spoiler: and ends up doing a full HeelFaceTurn]].
