** When Gibbs makes it perfectly clear that he is not going to stop protecting Maddie.
---> '''Ducky:''' Jethro, just who are you trying to save?
---> '''Gibbs:''' I look at her, I see Kelly, Duck. How it should have been.
---> '''Ducky:''' Jethro, be careful. Don't-don't let your....some things just can't be undone.
---> '''Gibbs:''' [[MyGreatestFailure I wasn't there then.]] [[MyGreatestSecondChance I am now.]]

Added DiffLines:

* "Daughters":
-->'''Ziva''': (''upon return, to Gibbs'') Well, aren't you going to say something?\\
'''Gibbs''': (''after a {{Beat}}'') Ziver...


** Even more heartwarming comes in later in the episode after TheReveal: [[spoiler: The woman with the baby used to be a sleeper agent for North Korea, but she turned her back on it and killed her former comrades because she genuinely loved her husband and baby daughter too much to leave them]].

And at the end of the episode, her husband decides to forgive her as he knows her love of him and their daughter was always real]].


Added DiffLines:

** When Palmer can no longer cover up Ed's involvement in the case NCIS is investigating, Ed begs Gibbs not to get mad at his son-in-law for his actions. And when it comes down to it, nobody actually gets mad at Palmer, as any of them would have done the same thing.

** After Jimmy successfully convinces the son that he can keep on living and the two of them head inside, the first-responders, the news crew, and the civilians watching all cheer for the both of them.
** After Palmer accidentally reveals via the microphone to the rest of the team that [[spoiler: he's a fully-licensed Medical Examiner now]], Abby and Bishop immediately petition Gibbs to get him a pay raise [[spoiler: and Ducky [[SoProudOfYou rushes back to the building so he can congratulate him on his success]]]]."

'''Ducky''': Where else would I be? I'm not going to leave you out there all alone... [[spoiler: Dr. Palmer]].

Added DiffLines:

** Palmer reveals to Ed that his own father [[AbusiveParents wasn't a good person at all]]. What made Jimmy finally give up hating him was the birth of Victoria, because he wanted to become a much better dad than his own ever was.

Added DiffLines:

* "Bears and Cubs":
** Palmer saying that he has two father figures at NCIS, clearly referring to Ducky and Gibbs.
** Equally heartwarming and tearjerking, Ducky choosing to retire, and to turn over his position as Chief Medical Examiner over fully to Palmer.
* "Silent Service":
** With Ducky stepping down from the ME position, Vance offers him a way to stay on, as the NCIS Historian. The whole team shows up to celebrate him remaining at NCIS while starting his new chapter.

Added DiffLines:

* Tony, Ziva and McGee [[spoiler: resigning from NCIS to protect Gibbs]] in "Damned if You Do", because they know that he would do the same for them.

Added DiffLines:

** The reunion between Zach and his father at the end of the episode is really sweet.


* In "Hiatus", Ziva awakens Gibbs from his coma by by putting his hand on the back of her head as if imitating his famous DopeSlap in a moment both funny and heartwarming as it shows [[DefrostingIceQueen despite her rather standoffish demeanor she really does care about him.]]

* In "Hiatus", Ziva awakens helps [[spoiler: an amnesiac Gibbs from regain his coma by memories]] by putting his hand on the back of her head as if imitating his famous DopeSlap in a moment both funny and heartwarming as it shows [[DefrostingIceQueen despite her rather standoffish demeanor demeanour she really does care about him.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Everyone imagining Kate appearing to them, managing to get them to smile while they're still reeling from her death. If nothing else, it's a good way to remember her, not the horrific way that she died, but as their friend.
** The only exception to this is Gibbs, who is seeing her berating him for letting her die throughout the episode, which makes her final appearance to him, gently teasing him for being late to her funeral, all the sweeter.


* "Truth or Consequences." The premise alone ([[spoiler: Tony, [=McGee=], and Gibbs go to Somalia to rescue Ziva from a terrorist camp.]]) is equal parts this and CrowningMomentOfAwesome, but the last 2 minutes are the most heartwarming. [[spoiler: When the team comes into the squad room, beaten, tired, and looking like hell, the ''entire floor'' applauds them, starting with Vance. And Abby, usually the embodiment of GenkiGirl, silently and calmly goes over and hugs Ziva.]] You can't help but feel good after watching that.

Added DiffLines:

* "She":
** Bishop digging her heels in and helping Ziva solve a cold case that she handed off, even calling Gibbs out on Rule 10 (never get personally involved in a case).
** Lily reuniting with her mother and meeting her father for the first time.
** Sloane opening up to Lily.
