Heartwarming: Duckman

Happens more often than you might think... As CR put it, because the show wasn't nearly as schmaltzy as shows like Full House, the moments where the characters did something heartwarming meant all that much more.
  • The Indian casino episode.
  • "The Girls of Route Canal", in which Duckman tells his sons the story of how he met Beatrice.
  • Near the end of "Cellar Beware", Duckman throws himself on top of a bomb — and even though it didn't end up exploding, Duckman "sacrificing" himself willingly to protect his family tugs at the heartstrings a little.
  • The end of "Sperms of Endearment", when Duckman and Bernice walk together in the park and engage in a venom-free exchange of their usual insults.
  • After being driven to the brink by his various future-selves in "The Once and Future Duck", Duckman finds himself face-to-face with a past version of himself — from the day of his wedding. When Past!Duckman asks if he and Beatrice will grow old together, Present!Duckman tells him the truth: "You're gonna love her until the day you die."
    Past!Duckman: ůmaybe I don't need to know any more than that.
  • "Ajax and Ajaxer" ends with a dedication to the late Dana Hill.
  • After Duckman reveals why he was such a jerkass to King Chicken as a child, they bond in King Chicken's rec-room/Duckman-murder-shrine. After so many implied years at each other's throats, for the truth to finally come out and for them to be able to be in a room at the same time, even if it involved copious amounts of alcohol and King Chicken having an affair with Bernice, was a nice development.
    • Too bad it didn't stick by the end of the episode, though...
  • The ending of the very first episode qualifies as one.
