Heartwarming: Muppets from Space
  • After Gonzo learns the truth behind his alien heritage. Never before has Gonzo seemed so happy as when he shouts, "I KNOW WHERE I COME FROM!"
  • Gonzo's alien brethren must have been looking for him for a long time, to let him stay on Earth at the end just goes to show how much they must really care for the guy and his happiness. D'awww
  • I like how Rizzo was almost hysterically happy that Gonzo wasn't going to leave Earth. Now that I think about it, it's hard to imagine things without those two together.
  • Kermit's very simple reaction to Gonzo's farewell puts a lump in many a fan's throat every time.
    "We love you, Gonzo."
  • On the audio commentary, Gonzo begins to tear up while re-watching the family-photos scene, and Rizzo hugs him. Near the end of the film, when Rizzo is saying goodbye to Gonzo, the Rizzo in the commentary leaves the room sniffling.
  • When Rizzo saves Gonzo from Dr. Van Neuter, he climbs down a rope to reach Gonzo. When was the last time Rizzo was dangling from a rope? When Gonzo dragged him along to climb up Scrooge's house, and later fly behind Scrooge and the Ghost of Christmas Past, during the movie where they first became friends.
  • Ed's reaction when he decides to Stay with the Aliens and his subsequent (if not somewhat sudden) Heel-Face Turn.
    Ed: (after the leader of Gonzo's people gives him the offer) You want me to go with you? (with a tone of wonder in his voice) To...boldly go where no man has gone before?
  • While she did it mostly to get the news scoop, Miss Piggy earns points for fighting the government agent in order to find Gonzo's whereabouts.
