Heartwarming: The Thin Man
- Nick being congratulated by his father at the end of Gone Home. He spends the whole film denying that he wants his father's approval of his chosen profession, but still literally pops a vest button at it.
- A lot of Nick and Nora's Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other moments double as this.
- Notably in the first film, when Nora breaks their usual spatting partners badinage to sincerely tell Nick to be careful on an investigation.
