This may be Denser and Wackier
compared to Watanabe's other shows, but that doesn't mean the tears won't flow.

Episode 2: The Search for the Phantom Space Ramen, Baby
Episode 4: Sometimes You Can't Live With Dying, Baby
- A bit odd for a series like this to be sure, but you can't help but shed a few Manly Tears at the end of Dandy's visit to Pop's ramen stand.
- It gets worse when you know the real world subtext. Ichirō Nagai, the Japanese voice actor for the shop owner, would die only two weeks after the episode aired, making it his last role.
Episode 5: A Merry Companion is a Wagon in Space, Baby
- Despite being turned into a zombie, Dandy won't ever give up the fanservice he needs at BooBies, and fortunately, Honey is dim enough not to notice he's dead... but upon attempting an ass grab, Dandy's slowed-down reflexes aren't fast enough and Honey leaves him hanging. It's sad seeing Dandy not being able to return to his one obsession after his change. ...that is, until everyone in the universe turns into zombies later.
- When Dandy is escaping the hospital, he seems genuinely upset that he's leaving his zombified friends behind. Compare to when he recklessly used QT as a weapon.
Episode 8: The Lonely Pooch Planet, Baby
Episode 9: Plants are Living Things Too, Baby
- When Adélie thinks that Dandy is going to abandon her, she angrily runs off to a dark corner of the space port just to break down and sob. The episode builds up their relationship, and she just feels so hurt and betrayed. It's heavily implied that this isn't the first time Adélie has been cast aside by an adult.
Episode 10: There's Always Tomorrow, Baby
- The plant people turning back into regular, non-sapient plants at the end.
Episode 13: Even Vacuum Cleaners Fall in Love, Baby
- Meow's goodbye to his family (but especially his father, whom he was initially distant to). Especially since he spent a good portion of the episode using the time loop as a way to grow closer to his father, even though his dad likely doesn't remember anything about all the days they spent together.
Episode 14: I Can't be the Only One, Baby
Episode 15: There's Music in Darkness, Baby
- Poor Emo Dandy. His Crew is a Cyborg that no one can understand and carries a helmet that he never wears and a whiny voiced man who says he's a robot. Kinda makes you wonder what his ship is like.
Episode 16: Slow and Steady Wins the Race, Baby
Episode 21: A World with No Sadness, Baby
- The fate of Ukulele Man and Dandy's parting words to him.
Ukelele Man: "That's okay. It can end like this. A smile probably wouldn't have suited me anyway."
Dandy: "Actually, baby, you're smiling right now."
Ukelele Man: "I am? Really? And is it... is it a good smile?"
Dandy: "Good? No, that's a great smile you've got there."
- Dr. Gel being rejected by a ghostly vision of his mother as he drowns in the River of Time because she is unable to recognize him.
Episode 23: Lovers Are Trendy, Baby
- The entire episode is soul searchingly depressing.
- How Planet Limbo became the planet of the dead.
- "I was lonely for decades... for centuries... for eons..."
- Notably, the usual outro is omitted for this episode.
Episode 24: An Other-Dimensional Tale, Baby
- The episode ends with Dandy and Scarlett coming this close to meeting again and resolving their feelings, only to be kept from seeing each other by a train passing between the two of them.
Episode 25: Dandy's Day in Court, Baby
Episode 26: Never-Ending Dandy, Baby
- The real reason Catherine broke up with Dandy and Dandy's motivation for helping her deal with Paul.
- Everything involving Dr. Gel after he gets shot by Bea.
- Dandy leaving behind his friends so he can stop the Super Hulkider from destroying the universe.
- Trapped in a pyonium inferno, Dandy desperately reaches out to his video monitor where QT, Meow, Scarlet, and Honey are watching him.
