Igniculus: So much feeling, I wish I knew,

He holds you when you are sad,
He always knows what to do
He is the best friend you ever had.
Igniculus: How can one father do all that?
Aurora: That is what fathers are good at.

Herb: From the second you were born.

"My dad was no superhero. He didn't save the world from the near apocalypse of '09. He never went toe-to-toe with Mr. Freeze, but he was a good man just the same. Even after he and mom got divorced he always tried to do the right thing. My brother and I were always provided for. When mom couldn't quite make the bills he always helped out. Tried to teach me right from wrong. Would've too if I ever listened to him. And he never laid a hand on me, although Lord knows I was asking for it."
Terry McGinnis, Batman Beyond

Back when I was a child
Before life removed all the innocence
My father would lift me high
And dance with my mother and me
And then
Spin me around 'till I fell asleep
Then up the stairs he would carry me
And I knew for sure
I was loved

If I could get another chance
Another walk
Another dance with him
I'd play a song that would never ever end
How I'd love love love

To dance with my father again
Luther Vandross, "Dance With My Father"

Mom, it's your birthday
Thanks for all the care and love you give,
Not to mention the meals,
At times I get kinda nervous,
And forget to tell you how I feel

I'm a little high strung
It's just because I'm young
Mom, I adore ya
And I'll do anything for ya...

Although my brothers make me frantic,
(Ooh, ooh, aah...)
With every single crazy antic,
(with every single crazy antic...)
And when I'm bouncing off the walls,
You're the one who stays calm!
(You're the one who stays calm)

Because you love me for who I am,
I'll always love you, Mom!
Candace, Phineas, and Ferb, "I Love You Mom", Phineas and Ferb

F...You are my friend.
A...You are my ally.
T...You are my teacher.
H...You are my hero.
E...You are my example.
R...You are my rock.
K. Williams

Blake: How can you still love me after what I did?
Ghira: Blake... Your mother and I will always love you.
Blake: You were right. I shouted at you and yelled at you. But you were right. I called you cowards!
Ghira: It's okay.
Blake: I should have left the White Fang with you and Mom. I should've listened to you, and I'm sorry. I'm so, so sorry.
Ghira: Blake, it's fine. We never held anything against you, and I never feared you would fail. The only thing I ever feared was that you would fall down the wrong path, and I am so proud to see you haven't.
Blake: But I did! I was—
Ghira: And you pulled yourself out. You came back. There aren't many who possess that kind of strength and even fewer that have the courage to face their demons again. Vale, Mountain Glenn, Beacon - you confronted the White Fang time after time.
Blake: I didn't do it alone.
Ghira: No, you didn't. Which is why I wanted to ask you... why did you leave Vale? Why did you leave your friends behind?
