A rare villainous example in the Metallikats—for all their bickering Like an Old Married Couple (which they actually are), there are moments when we see how much they care for each other deep down. The foremost example has to be "Unlikely Alloys," where Molly teams up with the Swat Kats in order to save Mac after he gets absorbed by an out-of-control artificial intelligence. Even before that, when one of their bank heists goes wrong and Molly gets critically damaged, Mac's first instinct is to ignore the loot (even when she tells him to grab it) and get her away from the Swat Kats and the Enforcers.
- After their escape, Mac hooks an unconscious Molly up to an emergency power charger to keep her alive, then urges her to say something.
Mac: Come on, insult me! I won't even get mad!
Molly: (Stirs) Can I...call you "bucket butt?" (groans)
Mac: (Chuckles) I knew it! You just need to charge up for a while.
