* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: In "Leavin' Stevens," Louis [[AbortedDeclarationOfLove misses the chance to express his true feelings to Tawny]] on what is supposed to be his last day at school. [[spoiler: He makes a tape instead, in which he [[LoveConfession confesses his love for her]]; when it turns out that his family is no longer moving to Washington, he has Beans sneak into her room and steal the tape, but it turns out to be the tape that Tawny has made in order to express her love for Louis. In what is arguably one of the defining moments of the series, the two of them watch each other's tapes simultaneously and then encounter each other at school the next day.]]

** ''All'' the songs in that episode.
