The Christmas Episode which manages to be this rather than Narm, or at least in this troper's opinion. Especially the scenes at the end with all the characters celebrating the holidays in their own personal ways.
In particular, Scott's confession to Rogue that he used to believe in angels. I get the impression that he couldn't tell this to anyone else for fear of looking weak, but he trusted her with this secret.
There's also the Kurt and Amanda subplot in "Shadowdance", where Kurt tries to hide his mutation from the girl who asks him out... but it turns out she knows he's a "blue fuzzy elf" and is okay with it. And don't forget Todd and Freddy bemoaning how no one has asked them out, then Tabitha comes in and talls them she's taking both of them as her dates.
The scene at the end of "Power Surge" when Jean says to Scott after he helped her come out of the Unstoppable Rage her evolving powers forced her into, "That's what I like about you, Scott. You know me better than anyone ever has or ever will." Ship Tease anyone?
Even better because he had said the same thing about her earlier in the episode when trying to snap her out of said rage.
We can't forget Rogue's words after saving Jean, either: "Me and Miss Popularity there, we're worlds apart...different galaxies, but then I realized something. She would do the same thing for me."
The episode where Mystique kidnaps Scott and drops him in Mexico without his glasses. She attacks him in a warehouse only for Jean to get a Crowning Moment of Awesome and save him.
Mystique: How sweet. Girlfriend to the rescue.
Jean: You got that right, lady!
Then at the end, Jean gives Scott his glasses and they embrace. Cue Logan whispering to Storm, "Well it's about time".
Which itself is a CMOH for Logan, since this is literally the only version of the X-Men where he'd say that instead of a jealous "he doesn't deserve her" rant.
Grim Reminder where Wolverine has had a chip implanted in his head that drives him insane. Kitty goes up to him anyway and is able to get him to remember her. At the end of the episode, we find out that Kitty has been checking on him in the hospital every hour to see if he's alright.
I like the fact that for most of the episode Kitty kept complaining about how crowded she felt living in the institute. By the end of the episode she's learned, not only to appreciate Logan, but everyone else a little bit more.
Logan and Rogue together full stop. There's an episode where all the people she's ever absorbed overpower her and Logan is the one who convinces her to fight them. At the end, she comes out of her unconscious state to hold Logan's hand and smile up at him.
In Turn Of The Rogue, Wolverine asks where her allegiance lies. Terrified and shaking from the cold, Rogue asks if she'll be thrown out of the jet if she says no. Not only does Logan tell her no, but offers her his hand after she says she'll join. D'aw.
Lance saving Kitty from the falling stands.
Any time Kurt & Kitty interact is either this or a Crowning Moment of Funny. In the episode 'Rogue Recruit', previously Kurt had tried to impress Kitty and just freaked her out. When she wants to prove herself to the others after Logan tells Kurt to watch the 'half-pint', she ends up freaking Rogue out even more and getting Nightcrawler hurt. After pleading for him to wake up, ("Come on Kurt, wake up! Tease me! Scare me! Anything, just be OK!"), she manages to contact Xavier and get Kurt help. When he recovers she tackles him and crushes him with hugs while calling him a fuzzy elf. This caused lots of fan fiction on the internet.
Kurt being at Rogue's bedside, even just to be there to comfort her after the events of her power surge. He then happily tells her, (because Kurt found out a few seasons ago that he's Mystique's son and now Rogue found out recently, she's Mystique's daughter-through adoption) that he's so excited, because Rogue is basically his big sister now, and that he always wanted to have a brother or sister. AWWWWWW!!!!
Rogue's dopey smile after Kurt teleports out of the room, showing she's touched by his concern and enthusiasm at being her brother.
The episode when Kitty rescues Danielle Moonstar from the underground cavern. Very few people believed Dani even existed, and no one believed she was still alive. Everyone figured that Kitty was going insane when she continues to talk about her dreams about Dani. And yet she continues to search for Dani and eventually saves her from a terrifying death via drowning.
From the episode in which Captain America guest stars, the bit where Wolverine tells a cryogenically frozen Captain America how they made a good team and how Wolverine will find a cure for his condition.
Also in that episode: "My name is Erik Lensherr. Thank you for saving us."
Whatever happened before or after, the scene where Pietro talks to Wanda in Hex Factor is heartwarming; he starts by complimenting her haircut—which, let's face it, not a lot of brothers would do—and tries to apologize for her time in the asylum. It rang true for this troper, who has siblings, and probably for many more.
X-23 has Logan learning of the utter hell, well, X23 was put through, and becoming utterly enraged over it. When she comes after him he finally manages to fend her off long enough to explain he's also a victim, as she breaks down crying over everything that was done to her, before Shield arrives and despite her wanting to stay with Logan he tells her to run, before he stands up to Nick Fury and tells him to let her go.
She returns the favor in her other episode when Hydra hires two bounty hunters to go after Logan, knowing she will find him. With them on their tail, X23 repeatedly tries to get rid of Logan, not because he's slowing her down as she claims, but because she intends to be captured so she can blow up Hydra, and knows if Logan follows her he'll end up dead.
Toad, yes Toad gets one in the episode The Toad, the Witch and the Wardrobe: After rescuing Wanda from Mastermind and her own father she gives him a kiss (though he was in the form of a ski tourist thanks to Kurt's holographic inducer at the time, but still). After being told that he put his life on the line for her, she gives him a soft, grateful look followed by a very genuine "Thank you". Then later, at the Brotherhood of Bayville Boarding House, she actually talks to him in a casual manner about not being mad at her father anymore.
Spyke's documentary about the X-men, especially when he calls them his new family.
After Mystique is turned to stone and taken by the Brotherhood, Nightcrawler goes to retrieve her stone body while the room she is in is empty. Then Scarlet Witch comes in and prepares for a fight. However, when Nightcrawler tells her the statue is his mother, she just walks out the room with out saying a word, allowing Kurt to take his mother.
