- This narration from the first episode, one of the defining descriptions of Julius.
"My father wasn't the type to say 'I love you.' He was one of four fathers on the block. 'I'll see you in the morning' meant he was coming home. Coming home was his way of saying 'I love you.'"
- In Everybody Hates Earth Day, it's revealed that Rochelle's yelling is not because she does it to be mean to her children; if Rochelle didn't yell at all, nothing would get done or cleaned or anything around the Rock household and she'd more or less be walked over like a doormat.
- The way Chris' normally jerkass classmates fell pity for him after his grandfather dies. Even Caruso gives him his condolences.
Narrator: He later punched a Chinese kid in my honor.
- Chris and Tasha kissing in "Everybody Hates New Year's"
- Speaking of the said episode, this may not seem heartwarming at all, but the reason that Rochelle refused to let Chris go with Peaches and Malvo, two ex-cons mind you, to Times Square is that she was worried about Chris being alone in such a huge gathering of people even if she didn't show it and while she may be a tad hard on her children, Rochelle still loves them.
- There's even one for Julius: he was trying his hardest to get home to his family in time for New Year's, putting aside everything else and trying his hardest to accomplish that goal. Granted, he does manage to get there after managing to convince a man not to commit suicide by jumping off a bridge by having a long banter about many famous people who had problems, yet they didn't jump off bridges. Saving that guy's life could technically be a second heartwarming thing.
- In "Everybody Hates Funerals", after being threatened by his grandma to be knocked into another family after bravely defending Rochelle, Chris imagines what it would be like to be knocked into another family. The family do inquire on whom Chris is, and when Chris tells them that they don't want to know what happened, they don't question it further or overreact to this abnormality. Instead, they allow him to bond with them and watch some television. Quite the Pet the Dog moment, indeed.
