* You know, make that any serious scene about ''[[TrueCompanions 'ohana]]''. "[[TearJerker 'Ohana means family. Family means nobody gets left behind--or forgotten.]]"
** It's easy to overlook since the scene is so focused on Nani and Lilo, but watch Stitch during the first mention of ''[='=]ohana''. He starts off struggling in Nani's arms--at least until something Lilo says gets his undivided attention, namely "'Ohana means family". Even better is the absolutely ''stunned'' look he gives Nani when she immediately closes the door after that same line. This is the first scene in the movie where Stitch seems to regard Lilo and Nani as if they are more than just his meat-shields.

* Let's face it. The real reason why we fell in love with these characters, and why we find them to be cute and fluffy (and not just referring to Stitch's physical cuteness and fluffiness either), is because of their genuine love for one another. Lilo and Stitch themselves were troubled individuals before they met each other. Lilo seeing Stitch as a friend and making efforts to understand him [[HeelFaceTurn causes him to become a compassionate creature]], while his very presence as well as his understanding of her in return [[TameHerAnger causes her to be less temperamental]]. They are both incredibly supportive of each other and [[DontSplitUsUp do not like it when they separate]]. Even when they fight, they would end up feeling remorseful for their actions towards the other [[TheAtoner and are willing to make up for them]]. Even as [[Anime/{{Stitch}} adults who have gone their separate ways]] as a result of a huge misunderstanding, they ''still'' have their affections for each other. Lilo and Stitch became one of the greatest pairs of best friends in Disney history as a result of the events of these films and television series because [[PlatonicLifePartners they care about each other so much]]. That is what ''[[TrueCompanions 'ohana]]'' is all about.
