Heartwarming: Bridget Jones
  • A Call Back to the Turkey Curry Buffet in the first movie: Bridget shows up to the Turkey Curry Buffet and sees Mark in a Snowman sweater his Mother gave him; he and she exchange smiles and camera pans over to Bridget, which shows her pale blue sweater sporting the same design! Then comes the kiss. Clearly Mrs. Darcy has accepted Bridget as her son's girlfriend (not that she didn't). One of the few times receiving a Homemade Sweater From Hell is romantic.
  • Mark's apology and more-or-less confessing his feelings to Bridget is this trope:
    Mark: I don't think you're an idiot at all. I mean, there are elements of the ridiculous about you. Your mother's pretty interesting. And you really are an appallingly bad public speaker. And, um, you tend to let whatever's in your head come out of your mouth without much consideration of the consequences. I realize that when I met you at the turkey curry buffet, I was unforgivably rude, and wearing a reindeer jumper. But the thing is, um, what I'm trying to say, very inarticulately, is that, um, in fact, perhaps despite appearances, I like you, very much. Just as you are.
    Mark: I like you, very much.
    Bridget: Ah, apart from the smoking and the drinking, the vulgar mother and... ah, the verbal diarrhea.
    Mark: No, I like you very much. Just as you are.
  • Bridget's speech to Mark:
    Bridget: You once said you liked me just as I am and I just wanted to say likewise. I mean there are stupid things your mum buys you, tonight's another... classic. You're haughty, and you always say the wrong thing in every situation and I seriously believe that you should rethink the length of your sideburns. But, you're a nice man and I like you. If you wanted to pop by some time that might be nice... more than nice.
  • Bridget's Big "NO!" speech at the Darcy's Ruby Wedding when she learns Mark is transferring to New York.
  • The Second film has these in spades:
  • The second novel has two scenes
    • Pam comforts Bridget about Mark and even gives her about what love with a reference to The Velveteen Rabbit, overall it's really nice to see the normally self-centered and outrageous Pam be affectionate and caring with her daughter.
      “That’s how it works, when people really love each other,” Mum whispered on the way out in the Debenhams’ lift, as if she was confessing some hideous and embarrassing secret. “But, the thing is, darling, it doesn’t happen to ones who have sharp edges, or break if they get dropped, or ones made of silly synthetic stuff that doesn’t last. You have to be brave and let the other person know who you are and what you feel.”
    • The scene where Mark and Bridget tell each other how they really feel: Mark telling Bridget how he never wanted to be far from her and Bridget telling him how she felt and rubbing his head. It ends with them having sex.
      "I stroked his hair, I kissed his bald patch where his fur had been loved off. And then I told him how I felt, what I really, really felt. And the miracle was,when I had finished, he told me he felt pretty much the same"
