-->See, James left Vault 101 without telling the kid why. Now, I've since learned that James is a scientist and is working on something big. Is that why he left the Vault? Looks that way. So who knows, maybe James is going to save the world. Can't think of a better cause than that. But James, if you're listening... Your kid's out, man, and he/she misses you. So you might want to find him/her before he/she gets swallowed up and spit out. And for all you other cats out there listening, if you see the kid from Vault 101 out there, give him/her a pat on the back, and wish him/her luck

--> "But it was not until the end of this long road that the Lone Wanderer learned the true meaning of that greatest of virtues - sacrifice. Stepping into the irradiated chamber of Project Purity, the child followed the example of the father, sacrificing life itself for the greater good of mankind."
--> "Thankfully, when selected by the sinister President to be his instrument of annihilation, the Wanderer refused. ... The waters of life flowed freely, clean and pure, for any and all. The Capital Wasteland, at long last, was saved."

* There is a pretty heartwarming statement made by Ron Perlman early on in the Good Karma ending too:
--> "The Wasteland proved a cruel and inhospitable place, but the Wanderer refused to surrender to the vices that claimed so many others. The values passed from father to child - compassion, selflessness, honor - guided this noble soul through countless trials...and triumphs."

is full of quotes that, combined with the music, just bring a tear to your eye:
--> "The Capital Wasteland proved a cruel and inhospitable place, but the Lone Wanderer refused to surrender to the vices that claimed so many others. The values passed on from father to child - compassion, selflessness, compassion, honor - guided this noble soul through countless trials...and triumphs."

* According to the Fallout 3 Wiki entry on Moria Brown, it seems that 20 years after ''Fallout 3'', she recorded a message in her journal that even decades after you first entered her shop, decades of research assistants, she still considered you ''her single most important'' research assistant. She even begins preparations to write your biography based on the stories told about you.

* One that's also [[CrowningMomentOfFunny pretty funny]] as well as heartwarming: immediately after the Ant-Agonizer/Mechanist Quest in Canterbury Commons ([[VideoGameCaringPotential if you convince one or both of them to give up peacefully)]], put on their costume before leaving town. A kid, apparently a fan of the [=AntAgonizer=] or Mechanist, will pop out of nowhere and ask for your autograph. The kid's [[{{Squee}} sheer excitement]] is hilarious, and it's really sweet that even in [[CrapsackWorld the Wasteland]], at least ''one'' of its young residents can still have an idol, and just ''be a kid.'' You can even give the kid the costume!

* It's easy to miss, but Moriarty has a minor one in the transition to the 'Growing Up Fast' quest.
-->'''Moriarty:''' No, no, put that away. This one's on the house. And now a toast. To James and his cheery cherub. May your future be bright, safe, and boring as hell."

Added DiffLines:

*Maggie and Billy. After her parents were killed by raiders when she was only 7, Billy found Maggie hiding under a bed and adopted her for no reason other then that it was the right thing to do, and by all evidence, he is a good and loving caretaker.


* Ten words in the Ultimate Good Karma Ending. In series that explores how [[HumansAreBastards people are still trying to kill and exploit each other even after we've destroyed the world]], they nicely summarize the efforts of you, your father, and everyone else who's worked so hard in the centuries after the Great War to make the world a better place.

* Meeting Dogmeat for the first time, especially if you go looking for him directly after fleeing Vault 101. Dogmeat sounds so happy to have a new owner, and you are no longer alone as you traverse the Wasteland.

Added DiffLines:

** Three Dog's perception of the optimal Survival Guide has some potential Fridge Heartwarming. Considering all Moira wanted was to give humanity a helping hand, hearing her work being praised on a massively popular and far-reaching station must have made her ecstatic.

** Fawkes himself is potentially a walking heartwarming moment, depending on the player. He knows the Lone Wanderer for a short period of time in vault 87, but already feels loyal enough to you to [[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome following the group that ambushed you, finding a gatling laser and launching a full-on assault against one of the most fortified strongholds this side of the end of the world.]] And, depending on your karma, may still be willing to travel with you in your adventures, risking his life further on your behalf.
