Take Me to Your Leader

  • When, after Wildwing saved everyone again, the gang tells him that he's a better leader than even Canard himself.

Bringing Down Baby

  • All the Nosedive and "Baby" moments that aren't tear jerking, especially whenever Nosedive used his new watch to sooth the little alien.

Jurassic Puck

  • Honestly, the moment when Wildwing swoops in and saves Nosedive after seemingly being blown up moments before is not just a "Crowning Moment of Heartwarming," but of funny, heartwarming, and awesome all in one!
    Nosedive: Bro! You’re alive! Cool!

Duck Hard

  • Tanya goes off on the Saurians to avenge the fallen Wildwing; then Wildwing starts firing at the enemy with her and thanks her. It's her reaction that really makes it a moment of heartwarming as apposed to a Crowning Moment of Funny.
    Tanya: This is for you, Wildwing!
    Wildwing: Thanks, Tanya; 'ppreciate.
    Tanya: WILDWING! You're okay!
