Added DiffLines:

* Earl comforting Charlene when the first boy she goes out with breaks her heart at the ending of "Charlene's Tail", especially when she asks if he will be there for her and he says he will, if she wants him to. Double heartwarming because Earl isn't exactly an involved parent, but this episode shows that he truly cares for her.
** When Charlene explains the boy left with another girl and she had to walk home alone, he asks why she didn't call, as he would have picked her up.

* In "Charlene's Amazing Humans", Baby tattles on the eponymous humans for begging for food, and Charlene tells him not to feed them because they're only allowed to eat after they perform. Baby promptly gives them his banana. Ordinarily, this wouldn't be so heartwarming, as doing the opposite of what he's told purely out of spite is a common thing for Baby to do, but not in this case. He is visibly appalled to discover that Charlene doesn't feed the humans, so he's clearly doing it for their sake, even calling out for them to share as they scramble for it.
