Heartwarming: Temple Grandin
- Temple allowing her mother to hug her at Dr. Carlock's funeral.
- Real Life example: Temple hugging Claire Danes at the Golden Globes after Danes won best actress (in addition to the movie's half-dozen other awards).
- Dr. Carlock's entire relationship with Temple is really sweet. From the day he met her, right up until he passed away, he never once gave up on her.
