Heartwarming / Casper

  • The scene where Casper meets Amelia, who tells him that not only is she proud of him for giving up his chance to be resurrected by using the Lazarus to bring Dr. Harvey Back from the Dead for Kat, but Casper's father is proud of him as well. And Casper gets to have his wish as well as a reward, even if it was only temporary.
    Amelia: That was a very noble thing you did tonight, Casper. I know Kat will never forget it. She needs her father. And I know yours will never forget it either. You fulfilled his greatest dream, Casper, and I know he is very, very, proud of you. And for what you've done, I'm giving you your dream in return. But, it's just for tonight. Sort of a "Cinderella" deal.
    Casper: So I have until midnight?
    Amelia: Ten.
    Casper: Hey, Cinderella got until midnight!
    Amelia: (smiles) Cinderella wasn't twelve years old.
  • Casper and Kat embrace at the Halloween dance.
    • This takes a turn for the worse when Casper whispers "Can I keep you" again.
      • Debatable, as the line itself doesn't have to have the creepiness that people tend to associate with it.
      • At the very least, it carries the knowledge that no, no he can't. He only gets enough time to dance to half of a song with her and to kiss her once before he fades away again.
      • He was also just saying it to tell her who he is. Mnemonic devices are a theme in the film (Casper's room, the pinky promise) so that was why that line was chosen.
    • Casper gets to kiss Kat, right until he turns back into a ghost.
  • At the end of the movie, The Ghostly Trio keep their promise to James and find Kat's mother, Amelia. Considering they've been nothing but jerks throughout the entire movie, they really Took a Level in Kindness in doing this.
    James: How?
    Amelia: Let's just say you know three crazy ghosts who kept their word.
    • There's also them scaring away Vic and Amber, who were about to crash Kat's party, although this was probably them getting a good scare out of it rather than wanting to help Kat.
      • But when you consider they didn't go and crash the party themselves...
    • The reason Amelia herself isn't a ghost—James and Kat loved her so much when she was alive (and continued to love her long after her death) that she was able to pass on peacefully and happily, with no "unfinished business" to take care of.
  • Casper and Kat bonding over the course of the movie, with Kat finding kinship in another (literal) troubled soul, and Casper finally meeting someone who isn't afraid of him and obtaining a new friend as a result.
    • Also, the Ghostly Trio bonding with Dr. Harvey and, despite being constant jerks, trying to cheer him up with a couple of drinks. They even locate his deceased wife for him as part of a promise.
  • In its own creepy way, the Ghostly Trio deciding they want to make Dr. Harvey into a ghost so he can hang out with them and be their friend forever... and then, moments later, deciding they like him too much to kill him themselves.
