Heartwarming: Steam Train

  • Anytime the two of them are genuinely nice to each other since they usually pretend to be Vitriolic Best Buds.
  • The number of times Danny gushes about Space Quest and Sierra games in general shows that even after twenty years he still loves them.
  • Ross' encouragement of Arin through Doing Things the Hard Way in VVVVVV is genuinely really sweet.
  • The special version of the Stanley Parable demo they received that was specifically dedicated to Steam Train, and to Danny and Ross.
  • The first episode of Leisure Suit Larry has Danny back and Ross is so excited and acting like a happy puppy.
  • Doubles as a Tear Jerker. In the second (and final) episode of "Oregon Trail", Danny told a story about how when he played the game as a kid in class, he named the characters after his family members. When the character named after his mom drowned, he pretended to go to the bathroom and left the class to cry for about ten minutes because he was so upset about his mom "dying".
  • Danny and Ross' seemingly genuine affection for oft-maligned character Cedric in the King's Quest V playththrough, and their reaction to his supposed death trying to defend Graham.
  • They make clear they're not exactly for the messages Barbie could send to kids. Danny says that the women that become doctors and lawyers are the beautiful ones while Ross says that it is their right to act how they want, along with women shouldn't try to starve themselves to look like Barbie.
  • Ross and Arin's immediate indignation in Ride to Hell Part 2 when the main character makes a sexist comment.
  • In Duke Nukem 2, Ross gets so disillusioned playing the game, Arin decides to take over for him. Working together, they completely turn it around, finding the keycard, regaining their health almost completely, and redeem themselves. See it here.
  • When he was younger, Ross took revenge against his sister's bully using Myspace's comment system against the bully. Quote Ross, "Don't mess with my sister."
  • When Ross was younger, his dad stitching his cheek after a very nasty cat scratch.
  • The developers of Electronic Super Joy shouting out to Danny & Ross in the first level.
  • Barry & Ross laughing drunk at the end of Surgeon Simulator 2013.
  • The finale of Go Go Nippon! has Arin and Ross disappointed that they might be experiencing a bad ending with Golorful and Akira not being able to say their farewells. But wait! Akira is able to reach Golorful at the airport in time and Arin can't help expressing how sappy but adorable the ending is.
  • The positive reaction to the first Danny and Ross episode of Steam Train in a very very long time. It shows how far they've come since their rough and poorly received first episode.
  • In episode 4 of Battleblock Theater, Dan calls Ross an asshole, and Ross responds by calling Dan a fucking cunt.
  • The conductors thank everyone for one year of Steam Train!
  • The new intro basically acknowledges that Ross has been the most consistent host through out Steam Train, minus Meow Train and Valentines Day, with Danny and Arin being swapping co-hosts.
  • Arin and Dan's love story in The Sims 4.
  • Due to a glitch with Leisure Suit Larry 6 it cuts to four hours later. Ross was supposed to head over back home for Christmas dinner but the Conductors and Barry had to make sure the footage they had was good and processed properly. So Holly came over with Christmas dinner and they did it there. Barry even puts up a picture of the four of them.
  • In Part 12 of "Leisure Suit Larry 6", Larry goes through a scenario where his date, Shablee, for the evening turns out to be a transwoman and he reacts with horror and disgust. While they admit the game is a product of its time (and Shablee being a reference to Dil from The Crying Game as the film came out a year before Larry 6) and Dan flubs gender identity terminology a little bit (not too out of malice), its clear that they both think that reacting with disgust towards transgender people is not cool with them, and they give a kind shout-out to all their LGBT fans. Ross in particular seems genuinely irritated at Larry for the rest of the video.
  • Just like Arin and Suzy got did "Date Grumps" in 2014's Valentine's Day celebration, Ross plays a game with his wife Holly for Valentine's Day 2015, redubbing the show "Love Train". The intro is positively Adorkable- Holly flirts and Ross acts all awkward.
    Holly: (in a sultry acapella) Hey, Ross, let's play a game
    Ross: (flat and humdrum) Okay, I mean I guess I'm down with that- let's do it
    Holly: So all aboard the Love Train! Smooch-smooch!
