* ''iReunite With Missy'': Freddie giving up the '''six-month cruise around the world''' because he knows Missy isn't looking out for Carly's best interests, even if that means he has to keep dealing with Sam.[[spoiler:However, it turns that with or without Missy in the picture, it's actually a good thing that Freddie gave up the cruise--as it turns out, the School at Sea-cruise isn't even close to being as glamourous as its advertised to be (such as taking place on a cargo ship instead of a luxury cruise liner). And in a nice bit of karma, Missy suffers from seasickness, making the trip even less enjoyable for her.]]

* Nevel's emotional apology at the end of ''iPity The Nevel''. Despite the [[spoiler: YankTheDogsChain, which may or may not have just been PlayedForLaughs]], it's rather heartwarming to see the show's BigBad repent and pull a HeelFaceTurn like that.

** While she expresses appreciation for Gibby and Freddie's offer to take her to the dance after Spencer's unable to take her (which in itself is very sweet), the moment in which a tearful Carly laments not having anyone to go to the father-daughter dance, and then [[spoiler:her father walks in through the door, completely dressed in uniform, and he says he will take Carly to the dance. Cue her cheerful response, the studio audience applauding, and the viewers at home weeping TearsOfJoy.]]

Added DiffLines:

** One scheme Carly tries in an attempt to convince their grandfather that Spencer is responsible is to show up dressed like a {{Goth}} (dyed hair and piercings included -- though the piercings are revealed to be fake), in the hopes that Spencer will flip out and yell at her. The plan backfires, however, when Spencer says he loves it. After Carly leaves the room, their grandfather asks how Spencer can possibly approve, and Spencer replies that he ''doesn't''. But he figures that Carly's just going through a rebellious phase (as teenagers are wont to do), and that being supportive of her interests is more important than disciplining what she wears. And, you know, [[OpenMindedParent he's not wrong]].
** What finally convinces their grandfather to let Spencer keep custody? Just before Carly leaves, their grandfather clearly begins to doubt his decision when Spencer gives him a ''detailed'' guide on all of Carly's favorite things. What tips the scales, however, is when Spencer suddenly realizes Carly forgot her inhaler, and bolts after them to give it to her, even though she hasn't had an asthma attack in over five years. Even if there's only a minuscule chance she'll need the inhaler, he's not willing to let Carly risk it.


* Doubling as a CrowningMomentOfFunny, T-Bone flirts with the First Lady and asks if Michelle is married. He then gets a DelayedReaction [[{{Squee}} on realizing who she is]].
