Heartwarming / Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman

  • Myra admitting to Horace that she's as nervous as he is about consummating their marriage, as "I've never done it with someone I love". Later, when it seems that Horace might never get over his anxiety, she gently tells him, "It's okay. Lots of marriages are just. . .friendship marriages."
  • Fred Rogers' special guest appearance in "Deal With The Devil".
  • Jake is bandaging Teresa's injured arm. The sexual tension that's been smoldering all season heats to the boiling point. He gently leans in to kiss her, but she gently rebuffs him, telling him, "I'm still in mourning" (her husband was killed less than a year earlier). He nods, understanding, then carefully kisses her hand.
  • Mike gives Jake a blistering "The Reason You Suck" Speech for showing up at her house drunk, nearly injuring baby Katie. At the end of the episode, he comes to her office, saying, "About what you said the other day. . .thank you", thus revealing that she forced him to have a Heel Realization and get his life together.
  • Jake's father telling Brian in his dying moments that he's sorry for everything he did as a father and that he dearly loves his son, thinking Brian is actually Jake.
  • At the hurdy-gurdy dance Olive organizes, several girls from the foreign camp have tickets raffled off allowing people to dance with them. However, for a moment, Ingrid finds herself completely alone and thinks nobody wanted to dance with her, causing her to cry. Then comes an absolutely wonderful moment when Matthew reveals he bought all of Ingrid's dance tickets at the hurdy-gurdy dance just so he could have her all to himself... only to admit he can't dance a lick.
