Heartwarming / The Wonder Years

  • In one episode after breaking up with Winnie, Kevin comes home to see his dad working in the garage. After trying to say he doesn't want to talk about it, the scene ends with Kevin crying while his dad just hugs him.
  • Wayne wrecks the car and with a totally freaked out expression turns and asks Kevin if he's okay. Narrator Kevin says it's the first time he'd ever asked him that.
  • "A Very Cutlip Christmas" has the usually tight-fisted and mean-spirited Coach Cutlip playing jolly old Santa Claus at the mall. That alone is worth a mention.
    • Also when Kevin accidentally lets the secret slip, his schoolmates find it hysterical and go to the mall to heckle Cutlip. But they only see a warm and friendly Santa, never recognising their teacher.
