Heartwarming / Bob's Burgers

The Belchers are a loving family. A weird family, but a loving family none the less.

    open/close all folders 

    Season One 

Human Flesh
  • The first episode has Linda and the kids reassuring Bob that despite all his failures, the fact that he's pursuing his dream of a burger shop makes him better than Hugo who never had a dream at all.

Crawl Space
  • Linda's mother telling Mr. Frond that her daughter and Bob are great parents. Sometimes, families just drive each other a little crazy, and that's life. It ends up saving Bob and Linda from Social Services, and once again shows how adept the crew is at making even Obnoxious In-Laws three-dimensional and human.

Sheesh! Cab Bob?
  • Any time Bob does something crazy for his children's sake (and for his wife, as seen is the dinner theater episode). It happens a LOT for Tina in the first half of Season 1. Fighting Jairo? Check. Shaving off his mustache for her? Check. Bob may think his family is crazy (and they are), but he'll do anything for them, and it's both hilarious and sweet. Tina put it well.
    Tina: Jimmy Junior isn't gonna make this party perfect. You already have.
    • Speaking of "Sheesh! Cab, Bob?Ē the characterization of the transvestite hookers in that episode is actually kind of sweet. A lesser show (like Family Guy) would've treated them as walking punchlines (and indeed, their seedy lifestyles do contribute to some of the episode's humor) but never once does Bob - or anyone - dehumanize or stereotype them. In fact, not only did they briefly become Bob's drinking buddies and may have gotten him to try crack, they wound up giving Tina a heartfelt pep talk near the end of the episode. Loren Bouchard, in his A.V. Club interview about the series, does mention that, in the Bob's Burgers world, the people considered "weird" (including those who are considered "weird" because of their sexual preferences and/or gender identity) aren't written or treated like walking punchlines and Bouchard and his writers actually put some effort into making them human and three-dimensional.
    • In the same vein (and combined with Awesome Moments), the fact that Tina Belcher is probably the most realistic, human look at a teenage girl in an animated family sitcom in comparison to other shows on the Animation Domination line-up (past and present): Lisa Simpson has become an insufferable Soapbox Sadie, Meg used to be like Tina, but has since become a Butt Monkey (though some later episodes of Family Guy like "Meg Stinks!" and "Seashore Seashell Party" do show a more human side to her, even if it doesn't last), Luanne and Roberta Tubbs were just the kind of brainless fanservice that most TV shows have for teenage/20-something daughtersnote , and Hayley from American Dad! was pretty much Demoted to Extra after the writers decided to stop making fun of politics. It's just so refreshing to see.
    • Another point about Tina could be how she is represented as having autism. The first episode gives very strong implications that she is autistic, as well as showing symptoms throughout the show. Similarly to the trans prostitutes, although some of her atypical behaviour can contribute to the shows humour, she is always treated equally by the rest of the family, and she's given extra help and support when she needs it. Tina herself is represented as a very human and three-dimentional character, and comes across as no less 'weird' than the reast of the family. This, again, is extremely refreshing to see.

Spaghetti Western and Meatballs
  • Louise crying because Bob and Gene won't hang out with her anymore. Made even more heartwarming because of her usual personality.
    • Also Bob and Gene's interaction in this episode, bonding over a series of films.

  • There's something sweet about Gene's reasoning for why he couldn't remember the name of the restaurant when given the opportunity to do free advertising. As he describes it: "Well, I call you Dad! I think of it as Dad's Burgers!" That's... actually really sincere for a child Gene's age.

    Season Two 

Dr. Yap
  • Tina suggests a Hug-o-War as a way to determine who gets the Jawbreaker. Gene instantly squeezes Louise in a big hug yelling, "I love you! I love you!" Louise is unaffected by how sweet this is.
    Louise: Wait, wait, no! We can't use strength in this.
    • Later in the episode, when Dr. Yap tells the Belchers that Bob and Linda's room is soundproof...
    Gene: (runs inside) I can yell anything I want! No one can hear me!
    Gene: (slams door)
    Gene: [muffled] I LOVE MY FAMILY!

Bad Tina
  • Gene and Louise getting back at Tammy, the girl who was blackmailing Tina doubles as this and Crowning Moment of Funny. Includes this memorable line from Gene, who sums up exactly what fans and critics love about this show:
    Gene: We're Belchers, from the womb to the tomb!

    Season Three 

Bob Fires the Kids
  • Not sure what's better, that Bob fires them because he's afraid their childhood working will be as bad as his was, or that the kids are genuinely disgruntled at not being allowed to hang around the restaurant all day.
    • The blink-and-you-miss-it moment in the beginning of the episode, when Louise actually feels sad for Bob upon seeing his box of makeshift toys from his childhood.

Indecent Thanksgiving Proposal
  • The family reacting when they thought Bob was shot. Even Louise showed emotion.
  • Since the kids refused to do Bob's traditional Thanksgiving activities, he felt left out during the dinner. They all hugged him and said they were sorry.

God Rest Ye Merry Gentle-Mannequins
  • When the kids willingly give up the hard-earned money earmarked for their presents to buy the mannequin from the sex shop owner for their deranged houseguest, who is in love with it. This show makes that heartwarming.

Broadcast Wagstaff School News
  • Gene dressing up like and imitating his father manages to be just as sweet as it is gut-bustingly hysterical: the kid knows his father well enough to not only look exactly like a smaller version of him but say exactly the kind of things he would say, starting with referring to his mother as Lin (something otherwise considered extremely rude for children to do to their parents). The fact that Linda "gets it" and plays along is adorable.
  • When the "Mad Pooper" is revealed to be Zeke, he explains that while the first few times had been either accidents or for fun, he eventually kept going in order to help Tina's journalism. To make it better, Tina is genuinely touched by this, in sharp contrast to her usual cold attitude toward him.

Lindapendent Woman
  • Linda gets a new job at a supermarket. Not only is Bob miserable without her, but between that and the fact that the restaurant's finances collapse without her to sort out the bills, he still gets over his initial bitterness and tells her that if the new job makes her happier he's fine with her keeping it.
  • After Tina meets Josh from the supermarket, it almost seems like they'll never see each other again...until she comes across him walking home. It's nice to see a person who doesn't alienate Tina and Josh is genuinely interested in her.

O.T.: The Outside Toilet
  • Gene's friendship with the high tech toilet from "OT, the Outside Toilet".

  • When "Electric Love" is being performed, it cuts to Bob and Linda in the audience clearly impressed with Gene's songwriting. For all the fart noises he like to record on his keyboard, Gene has some real talent
    Bob: Wow did Gene write this?
    'Linda: God I want what they had, it's so romantic!

  • Even though she ends up fine, everyone in the family rushing over when it looks like Tina has collapsed, and Louise's Heel Realization that she almost killed her own sister.
    • Gene in particular; it's hard to catch in all the commotion but while Louise, Bob, and Linda are all screaming Tina's name hysterically, Gene calls her name with his voice quivering and sounding like he's about to cry.

It Snakes a Village
  • Linda is initially furious with Bob for encouraging her parents to attend a swingers' potluck, but changes her mind when she sees them kissing each other for the first time in twenty years.
    Linda: Huh. I guess if you love something, you let it go swing.
    • In the same episode, an elderly woman sends the kids in search of a giant python that ate her beloved chihuahua. In the end they find the dog, safe and sound, and reunite him with his owner, only to have him immediately run off again. Tina consoles the woman by telling her that the dog seemed really happy living in the woods. The last scene of the episode shows the dog and the giant python snuggled together inside a hollow log.

Boyz 4 Now
  • Louise and Tina have a bonding moment when Louise has her first crush. Louise ends up saying that she thinks Tina is a strong woman because although Tina has crushes all the time (which Louise hates) that Tina can handle herself without freaking out is something she admires.
    Tina: I'm no hero. I put my bra on one boob at a time like everyone else.
  • The fact that the boy band aren't necessarily angry or annoyed that Tina and Louise snuck onto their tour bus. The only one even initially annoyed is Boo Boo, primarily because a girl saw him in his booster seat. They instead express concern for their safety and that their parents might be worried about them. Boo Boo is even willing to listen to Louise's nervous stammering, and the moment is only ruined when Louise rears back and slaps the crap out of Boo Boo.

Carpe Museum
  • When Louise is snarking with Bob and alludes to herself one day running the restaurant. Bob lights right up realizing that Louise, on some level, actually looks up to him, and Louise's embarrassed denial is just plain cute.
    • Louise hugging her father at the very end (along with Rudy) adds to the sweetness.
    Bob: Hey, I'm glad we ditched. That was fun.
    Louise: Me, too. Let's do it again sometime. Like, maybe when you're old and senile, I'll close the restaurant and come spring you out from the nursing home.
    Bob: What?
    Louise: Sorry, I didn't want to do it, but Gene and Tina put you in a nursing home. And not one of the nice ones either.
    Bob: No, you said you'd be running the restaurant.
    Louise: Oh, no, I was just saying...
    Bob: You're taking over the family business?
    Louise: (scoffs) Yeah, right.
    Bob: Ha! Admit it, you look up to me.
    Louise: No! You are ruining our perfect day right now!
    Bob: Oh, my god, am I your hero?
    Louise: (groan) Sick!
    (at the end of the episode)
    Bob: So, when you run the restaurant, will you call it Louise's Burgers?
    Louise: I don't know. Maybe. (hugs Bob) Daddy.

    Season Four 

  • A blink-and-you-miss-it moment, but in Seaplane! as Linda has to land the seaplane by faking a crash the way her instructor did, Gene freaks, grabs his sisters' hands and the three hold on to each other.

Turkey in a Can
  • The Reveal of who was dunking Bob's turkey's in the toilet. It was an allergy medicine induced sleepwalking in Bob, who was using the Turkey to represent his memories of potty training Tina, representing his subconscious fear of her growing up. Not only is the flashback of Bob helping a two year old Tina sit on the potty heartwarming enough in itself, but it's then topped by Tina assuring Bob she still needs him and Bob allowing her to sit at the grown-up table.

Bob and Deliver
  • Bob's attempt to inspire the Home Ec class he's subbing for to learn how to cook, as opposed to just passively watching movies, actually works. In fact, it works so well that he's able to help Zeke gain some self-confidence and realize his talent for cooking, as well as connect easily to the students. They even rip up some popcorn bags in his honor when they learn he has to leave.
    • Which moves Bob to near-tears!

Christmas In A Car
  • During the credits, you see Teddy dressed as Santa carrying Louise around on his shoulders. They even split a cookie! It's adorable, and twice as sweet when you remember that not only is Louise not likely to share with others, ever, but that she was also planning on capturing Santa violently.
  • The family giving their Christmas tree and Linda's Dutch baby pancake to Gary, the candy cane truck driver, in spite of him repeatedly trying to run them off the road earlier. They realize he's having an even crappier Christmas than they are.

Slumber Party
  • In a similar vein to "The Kids Rob a Train", "Slumber Party" ends with Louise actually making friends with Jessica, based on respect for her scheming, evidence disposal and pillow-fighting skills. The end credits show a fashion show with all the characters from the episode parading by, ending with Louise and Jessica chasing each other with pillows and laughing.

Presto Tina-o
  • Jimmy Jr. and Tina making up after their big fight and winning the award for best on-stage chemistry.

The Frond Files
  • In all three of the kids' stories, Gene, Tina and Louise always stick together when there's danger. For all the jokes and snark, those kids are some of the most close-knit siblings on TV.

Mazel Tina
  • In a shockingly selfless act, Louise traps herself with the bratty, incredibly annoying Tammy for several hours so that Tina can steal the spotlight at Tammy's party. She also pretty much ends up taking Tammy hostage at one point, making her promise to invite Tina to all her future parties or be trapped forever.
  • Doubling as a Crowning Moment of Funny, before getting trapped she used the headset to convince the original party planner to quit and move to New York to be a Broadway actress, pissing off Tammy in the process. Janet is thrilled to be abandoning Tammy's party, and Louise seems genuinely happy for Janet.

Uncle Teddy
  • "Uncle Teddy" shows that Teddy is now basically an extended part of the family, as protective and caring for the kids as their parents.

The Kids Rob A Train
  • It gives us the return of Regular-Sized Rudy, with Louise taking him surprisingly seriously. She puts a lot of stock in his train map, pays close attention to the plan and chides Gene and Tina for "embarrassing her", and assumes Rudy is going to take the chocolate and leave her because that's what she would do. She also shoves him away from the chocolate when she learns he's allergic and completely freaks out when he pretends to be choking. There's definitely still some ribbing involved, but it seems like after the events of "Carpe Museum" she sees him as a real accomplice, which coming from Louise is a big compliment.
    Louise: You guys are embarrassing me. In front of Rudy, which is hard!
    • On that note, the fact that Rudy helped the Belcher kids with a ridiculously complicated and dangerous espionage mission on a moving train to steal a huge bag of chocolate which he knew he couldn't even eat. The entire thing was so they could eat chocolate and be happy while stuck in the Juice Caboose. That's actually very, very sweet.
      • One of the tiny details that most shows wouldn't bother with occurs when the kids are climbing back into the moving train. Louise loses her footing briefly and Tina grabs for her, than steadies her with a hand on her back as she climbs through the window.

The Equestranauts
  • "The Equestranauts" shows us once again how far Bob is willing to go when someone has done something wrong to one of his kids, in this case helping Tina get back her prized Equestranauts toy after it gets swindled from her at a convention.
    • There's also Tina's relationship with the group of "Equesticles"note  she meets at the convention. While their leader Bronconius is an arrogant jerk who talks down to his friend and steals her toy, the others are genuinely friendly to her and each other, helping her better accept the idea of grown men who avidly enjoy a little girl's show. This comes into play later on when Tina convinces them to turn against Bronconius for manipulating them through something they love to fulfill his own, twisted desires.

The Kids Run Away
  • In "The Kids Run Away", the lengths the family (plus Teddy) go through to help Louise get through getting her cavity fixed. Extra props to Dr. Yap for being so very accommodating. The entire session is staged to make Louise feel as though she is in the middle of a dire mission to save the universe, complete with a "microchip" being implanted in her teeth and enemy combatants breaking in. If only all dentists had been willing to do this.
    • Gayle's role in the episode in particular. When Louise is wracked by the pain of her cavity as well as her fear of getting a filling, Gayle comforts her in a remarkably empathetic fashion. Made especially heartwarming since Gayle tends to be eccentric comic relief.
Gene It On
  • A few things from "Gene It On":
    • The fact that Bob doesn't have any problem with Gene being a cheerleader and no one else raising any issue with it despite being a boy. Bob's only complaint is just that he thinks cheerleading in general is stupid, but doesn't have a problem with his kids trying it out nor does he try to discourage them. Linda's ecstatic about Gene joining, but it's for the sake of trying to be a cheerleader-by-proxy.
    • Tina doesn't have any problem either even though she was the one who initially tried out, and Gene didn't accept the offer to join the squad right away because he was there to cheer Tina on. She even gives Gene her support when he's offered the spot.
    • Despite Louise using Tina and Jimmy Jr.'s date as an excuse to pig out on pie in a fancy, revolving restaurant, Tina's able to have a nice romantic moment and enjoys a kiss with Jimmy Jr.

Wharf Horse, Part 1, Part 2
  • The memories Tina had riding the carousel in "Wharf Horse, Part 1". Ever since she was a baby, she loved being on "Mr. Goiter", even though she always fell off. In fact, Tina loved all the horses in spite of their deformities, and even after the carousel was torn down, she still got to keep Mr. Goiter's head to remember him by.
  • In "World Wharf II: The Wharfening", the Belcher's find themselves about to drown together. They do what any loving family would do: exchange I Love Yous for as long as they can. Even Louise!
    Bob: Oh god! I'm sorry I got us into this. Kids, I love you, and Linda, I love you too, almost as much as the kids, but not—
    Linda: Oh, Bobby. I love you too. I'm sorry I was mad at you about the stupid condos.
    Gene: I love you, Mom! And you, Dad!
    Louise: I love you all! But that's just between us.
    Tina: I love everyone! I love you, Mom!
    Linda: I love you too, honey. *group hug*
    Bob: I love you guys!
    Gene: I love you Dad!
    Tina: I love you Mom!
    Calvin: Oh god, they're starting again.
    • After part of the wharf crashes down on the family, and they're forced to swim for their lives, when they come up for air Louise is the first to spot her sister and say what are probably the most heartwarming words she's ever spoken:
    Louise: Tina! Thank God! You beautiful four-eyed son of a bitch! *hugs Tina*

    Season Five 

Work Hard or Die Trying, Girl
  • In the end, Courtney and Gene make up, and together with all the other kids, combine both of their plays.

Tina and the Real Ghost
  • When Louise and Gene decides to help Tina get back at Tammy for lying, instead of going trick-or-treating.
    • The fact that it's Louise who's first to say that they need to help Tina, since she knows it's her fault for causing the events in the episode, and does truly want to make up for it.

Friends with Burger-fits
  • Bob doing all he can to help Teddy get healthy, since it's him eating Bob's burgers everyday that is causing his cholesterol to become too high.
    • The ending, where Bob finally tells Teddy that he isn't his best customer, but his best friend.
  • The part where Louise and Zeke are fighting each other in their ice-wrestling tournament in the basement, it seems like Louise is going to lose, but Gene helps her win despite getting beat by her earlier.
    Gene: You might have beaten me Louise, but blood is thicker than ice...but not actually.
  • Earlier in the episode, when Bob has to wake up earlier than usual, both Gene and Tina come in, and join Linda in bed, and once Bob's gone even Louise joins in sleeping with her siblings and mother. Even though it only lasts for a few seconds, it's still really sweet.

Best Burger
  • Gene finally being able to focus, so he can get his dad the black garlic.
  • This line:
    Bob: Listen Gene, you may get distracted from time to time, but I love you and I love who you are.
    • This line from Gene is brief, but also counts:
    Gene: I've always admired you (referring to Bob)!
  • Ron helping the Belcher kids get the black garlic to Bob.
  • Even though Bob only came in second, tons of people are lined outside his restaurant, including the winner Skip Marooch, who smelled the burger Bob was cooking, and wanted to try it.

Father of the Bob
  • After an episode spent fighting, Bob and his father, Bob Sr., reconcile and return to Big Bobís Diner to find Linda and the Belcher children running the restaurant.
    Bob Sr.: You got happy kids. Weird, happy kids. That's nice. You're a good dad, Junior.
  • Big Bob keeping the first review of Bob's Burgers
    Big Bob: Listen, I know why you had to go. I can be...not great to work with. It was tough without your mom around. You did great on your own, you should be very proud.
  • In the flashback, Big Bob changing his restaurant to Big Bob and Son's Diner, as Bob's Christmas gift. Although his relationship with his son was rocky, he did try to bond with his son and wanted to work together as a team, as a way of showing his love.

Tina Tailor Soldier Spy
  • Louise wanting to help Tina find the mole in her Thundergirl's troop, creating the "Mole Patrol".
    • When Tina returns to her troop after finding the mole, Louise compliments her, and expresses brief sadness over no longer needing to be a team. Linda deduces that Louise was jealous of the thundergirls taking her sister away from her.
    • Compared to the season one episode "Spaghetti Western and Meatballs" where Louise had a hard time finding a way to bond with her mother and sister, here, she finally found a way to bond with Tina.
    Tina: Louise you could always come back to troop 119
    Louise: Nah, Thundergirl's is your bag, and if I had to I'd probably join troop 257. But if there's a murder or a drug sting, call me.
    Tina: Well I made this friendship bracelet for you.
    Louise: Ah, you know I'm not really a jewelry person.
    Tina: You don't have to wear it.
    Louise: No, I'm gonna wear it forever, back off.
  • At the end, When Bob sees Gene using the trash he gathered from the Thundergirls they were spying on as clothes, he admits that he actually likes how Gene looks and asks Gene to pick him out something next time. Gene asks him what he'd like to smell like, and Bob says to surprise him. Kinda squicky, and doubles as a funny moment, but it is a sweet brief moment of bonding for the two.

Midday Run
  • The reason why Zeke wanted the mascot costume? Because his grandma loves mascots, and he wanted to entertain her before her surgery.
  • Tina having faith that Zeke was telling the truth, even to the point of saying that if Mr. Frond's wrong, she doesn't want a promotion, she wants Zeke's punishment lifted. If he is lying then she'll have 1 month's detention, and turn in her vest. In the end Zeke was telling the truth.
  • A blink and you'll Miss it moment, but after Zeke jokes around that he and Tina will get married someday, Tina makes a little smile.

Speakeasy Rider
  • Tina decides that rather than win herself and beat Bryce, she pushes Louise with her to the finish line so that they can both beat him together.
    • There's also Louise admitting that Tina is the better driver and deserved to win. In the end, and the credits we see them both holding and sharing the trophy they both won..

Adventures in Chinchilla-sitting
  • Louise deciding to let Wayne take care of the chinchilla. She even tells him that the chinchilla missed him.
    • Louise and Wayne's bonding throughout the episode.
  • When Tammy helps the kids get into a High School party, not only do she and Tina show that they're not so different, with how they freak out at seeing a high school boy, but when Tammy gets so scared that she's about to fart, Tina helps her by carrying her to a window , so no one would notice. Tammy actually thanks her, and even though it seems like she's about to double-cross Tina, it turns out she was only kidding.
    • The fact that she does stay and help the kids throughout the rest of the episode.

Eat, Spray, Linda
  • Louise and the puppy. It's adorable to see her acting her age and revealing that she does have the same interest as a lot of younger kids. She merely acts in a crazier manner as a cover for her insecurities and an attempt to look cool.

Hawk & Chick
  • This entire episode is like one big Crowning Moment of Heartwarming. From Kojima's friendly demeanor and willingness to go along with the film festival plan to Dominic (the theater employee) going out of his way to help pull it off to the reunion at the end and the entire audience applauding and Dominic crying in joy.
  • Bob assuring Louise that they will never grow apart as they get older.
    Louise: Am I gonna turn into someone completely different someday? Is that what happens when you grow up? You-you grow apart?
    Bob: Listen, what happened to Hawk and Chick will never happen to us. This Hawk and this Chick will never not talk for 30 years.
    Louise: You promise?
    Bob: Yes, of course, Louise.
  • The Belchers actually succeed in reuniting the father and daughter duo of a series of Japanese martial arts films that Bob and Louise love. Bob even lampshades it by saying it worked out way better than he expected it to.
    Bob: Wow, that ended up working way better than I thought it would.
    Louise: Eh, it went about exactly the way I thought it would.

The Oeder Games
  • When Linda tells everyone what would happen if they harm Bob, saying that the family could become poor, and guilting them, and reminding them that Bob wanted to stick for all of them, ultimately everyone throws down their water balloons. Especially touching since not all of the tenants like Bob, but they still have it in them to not ruin his life.
    Jimmy Pesto: Ah, I wanted to throw a balloon at Bob. Fine, I'll throw something at him later. A meatball.
  • Bob finally consoling Mr. Fischoeder one on one instead of having everyone rally against him. Mr. Fischoeder admits that he wants to be the kind of landlord that you can be friends with, and deciding to hold back the rent hike for at least a year.
    Jimmy Pesto: You'll be out of business by then, Bob.
  • After all that, Bob say they all should celebrate by having a regular water balloon fight while a "Bob's Burgers"-style arrangement of "99 Lufbaloeons" plays the show out.
    • ..which, in a meta sense, is kind of sweet: the fact that the creators went out of their way to cover the song in the style of the show's score instead of just a needle-drop cue shows a special kind of appreciate for the dedicated viewers.

    Season Six 

  • The Belchers are stuck in the bathroom as someone they think is a murderer is walking up the stairs. Gene takes the time to tell Bob about how well he's doing as a dad and that Gene's having a good childhood.
  • Louise enthusiastically telling her family they're the best in the whole world after their attempt to frighten her on Halloween succeeds.
  • The Belchers all dancing and singing along to "I Love You So Much (It's Scary)" by Boyz 4 Now in the credits.

Gayle Makin' Bob Sled
  • Gail, who's at her worst to the point of being an outright sociopath in this episode, eventually realizing all the hell she's put Bob through just for attention and showing her gratitude by pulling him the rest of the way home.
  • Bob and Gayle's toasts, both basically saying that it's okay for family to drive you crazy, because that means you have family.

  • Gene's good deed was giving Rudy the last Taco on Taco Tuesday once. And he LOVES Taco Tuesday.
  • After Louise realizes that her lies for being so good that year were out of desperation, she says that they weren't true, and is also sure to ask the Mall Santa to put in a good word for Tina and Gene, since they've both deserved it.
  • Her whole family telling her that she actually is nicer than what she makes herself think.
  • The Mall Santa gives her an especially heartfelt talk, telling her that she has the heart of a leader.

The Steve, The Cook, The Gayle, and Her Lover
  • Mr. Frond and Gayle are pretty much perfect for each other, with their odd insecurities bouncing off each other. As Tina says it best;
    Tina: They're both so crazy, it just might work.
  • As creepy as it was, the doll Mr. Frond gave to Gayle was also pretty sweet.
  • Louise finally giving in to accepting Gayle and Mr. Friend's relationship once she realizes that Gayle is happier that way.
  • After neglecting Teddy the whole episode, Bob finally asks him to come up for dinner. However, Teddy declines since it's so late.

The Gene and Courtney Show
  • Oddly enough, Gene and Courtney are a pretty cute couple when they're dating, even if it does get in the way of their job, which makes their break-up a Tear Jerker.
  • Gene's speech saying that just because you don't have someone, doesn't mean you can't be happy.
  • After both Bob and Linda say that they didn't have time to get each other anything for Valentine's Day because they were both busy helping out Tina, they then agree to go make out in a bit, showing that they're one of the most earnest couples on television.

Sacred Couch
  • Despite the couch being in bent up shape, the whole family tries to get it back after saying that the couch gave them too many memories to lose it.

Lice Things Are Lice
  • Mere inches from getting out a library window and escaping the school nurse trying to shave her and a bunch of other kids and burn her beloved hat with Tammy, Louise has a (very) reluctant change of heart and decides to go back to help them. She also makes Tammy go back with her, despite Tammy's many protests.

  • Tina locking in Mr. Frond after he admits he's seeing others besides Gayle, proving that no one upsets her aunt.

House of 1000 Bounces
  • After neglecting Rudy's wishes the entire episode, Louise makes sure that he gets the puppet show that he wanted.
    • Noteworthy in that, unlike many, many other episodes where Louise pretended to care for someone just to get what she wanted (being Tina's "translator" in "Gene It On" comes to mind), Louise seems to genuinely want the bounce house just as much for Rudy's sake as her own, evidenced by how even once she's gotten the bounce house, she keeps asking Rudy if he's enjoying his birthday and when it turns out that he isn't after all, she wastes absolutely no time in working hard to make sure Rudy has a good birthday by organizing the aforementioned puppet show
    • Bob taking a bath with the pigeon is also pretty cute.

Stand By Gene
  • Despite it pissing off Jimmy Jr., Gene and Zeke bonding was pretty sweet.
    • When it seems as though the two-butted goat might not be real, Louise earnestly apologizes for always doubting him, because after all he went through that day, he deserved to see the goat.
    • Bob deciding to not sabotage Linda at the end due to their constant competing with each other, after seeing what it made him, and just looking at Linda made him smile.
    Bob I can't do it, Teddy. That's my wife!'''

Glued, Where's My Bob?
  • The entire town cheering for Bob after the man from Coasters magazines refuses to do an interview, claiming that there's nothing special about the restaurant. It's telling that even Jimmy Pesto gets in on it, and seems genuinely to be in Bob's corner!
    • The magazine does end up doing an article about the restaurant, and says that even though it's a regular burger restaurant, it obviously is a special place for many people in the town, and that makes it special enough for Coasters.
  • When Teddy hears that Bob's stuck on the toilet, he immediately cancels his therapy session and rushes over to check on him.
  • Louise's fantasy about when Bob gets unstuck from the toilet includes Bob giving her a huge kiss on the cheek and happily letting her ride on his shoulders. Again, this is Louise's fantasy, what she wishes and hopes will happen. Truly, Bob and Louise have one the cutest father-daughter relationship in modern television.
  • The Curtain Call ending where every character who's appeared on the show thus far joins in a reprise of the bathroom song is already pretty awesome and kind of sweet, but the best part is the close-up on Bob and Louise facing one another during their point-counterpoint... and we zoom out and see that Bob's been holding her in his arms the whole time. Awwwww!

Bye Bye, Boo Boo
  • The fact that Louise still has a crush on Boo Boo and is finally willing to admit it at the end in order to convince a group of angry Boyz 4 Now fangirls not to puke on him as they'd originally planned, is both adorable and surprisingly selfless.
  • Also that Boo Boo remembers Louise after being reminded of the slapping incident, and delivers a chipper and sincere "Oh my God, how are you?" instead of being angry or distant with her.

    Season Seven 
  • Louise's whole family working together to fix the ruined toy, and her forgiving them in the end
Large Brother, Where Fart Thou?
  • One of the most heartwarming moments in the whole series - Louise originally states to her parents that Gene doesn't really feel like a big brother because he doesn't do stereotypical "big brother" things like call her nicknames or fight off bullies for her. Later, when Louise is so afraid upon being cornered by an enraged Logan that she actually starts to cry, Gene throws himself in front of her, takes the punishment in her place, and on the way home Louise hugs him and thanks him for being a good big brother
