Heartwarming: Holes

  • When Zero finds his mother at the end of the movie.
  • Stanley carrying Zero up the mountain. Doesn't matter if you read it as Ho Yay or not, it's still ridiculously cute. Doubles as a Crowning Moment of Awesome.
  • "I can fix that."
  • At the end of the film, all the boys rushing out to greet Stanley and even Zero when they return.
  • From the 2003 Film:

    Stanley: "I do."
  • At the end of the book, Hector's mother sings this to him
    "If only, if only, the moon speaks no reply;
    Reflecting the sun and all that's gone by
  • "I don't smell anything". Stanley III finally inventing something successfully after years of hard work and bad luck makes this phrase more powerful than it should be.
  • Sarah refusing to leave Elya after finding out about his curse. One could interpret her choice as a big "screw you" to destiny itself.
