Heartwarming / Everybody Hates Chris

  • 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"
  • 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.
  • In “Everybody Hates Halloween,” when Keisha rudely rejects Chris’ offer for her to dance with him, a woman named Lisa takes pity on the poor guy and allows Chris to dance with her.
