* In the '60s revival series, "The Search" has Friday and Gannon looking for two little girls of a divorced couple who disappeared. They go to the father who, as it turns out, is a recovering alcoholic and working hard so he can be fit to return to their lives. At the end [[spoiler: they find the girls, safe and asleep. A dog they befriended 'protects' them until his owner arrives. The ending says the father regained visitation rights.]]
* "The Big Little Jesus" , where the small boy takes the child Jesus statue for the first ride in his new wagon.
* In the final episode of the Sixties series, we get what looks like the OnceAnEpisode banter between Friday and Gannon as Gannon claims to have started a diet--then we learn that Gannon gave his dinner money to the homeless man whose total worldly wealth of seventy-six cents was stolen.
* One episode of the Sixties series focuses on a police retreat to answer racial matters. We meet two [[NobleBigotWithABadge Noble Bigots with Badges]], one white and the other black. But by the end, they are both well on their way to overcoming their respective racial prejudices, and we see the seeds of a friendship between them.
* From TheMovie: [[FirstNameBasis "Read him his rights...Pep".]] It's the first time Friday calls Streebeck by his first name, who told him earlier that "friendships start with first names".
** And before that, when DaChief gives Friday his badge back, admitting that he didn't have it in him to make Friday's suspension permanent.
* Those sadly rare occasions the perpetrator of a [[MoralEventHorizon truly heinous crime]] is genuinely sorry for it.
