** "Weird Cousin" and "Arnold visits Arnie" make one of these where AllLoveIsUnrequited. With both towns combined, we have a chain: Arnold->Lila->Arnie->Lulu->Arnold->Hilda->Arnie->Helga->Arnold. Graphically, this would resemble a figure-eight.
*** However, one must also consider that [[spoiler: "Arnold Vists Arnie" is AllJustADream, so it is unlikely that Lulu and Hilda actually exist, and they are more likely Arnold's subconscious representations of Lila and Helga]].
*** Not that the actual shape of love between the non-dream characters is much better. At its most convoluted, it's around this: Brainy has a crush on Helga, who has a crush on Arnold, who has a crush on Lila, who has a crush on Arnie, who's got a crush on Helga instead.

* LoveDoodles: Helga is often seen drawing love doodles about Arnold whom she crushes on.

Added DiffLines:

** Towards the end of "New Bully on the Block", Wolfgang's team is down by three with little time left so he tells Arnold to kick a field goal. Out of his earshot, Helga tries to convince Arnold to purposely miss so Ludwig gets the vacant lot and the fourth graders can work out a deal with him and his goons. However, Arnold notices that the bullies are starting to get along and thinks that with them being friends, they'll be willing to share the lot now. Arnold makes the kick and the bullies congratulate each other on a good game and agree to hang out at the lot together. Unfortunately, they also decide they'll use their combined strength to keep the fourth graders out and beat them up when they complain about it.

Added DiffLines:

* NonNudeBathing: Phoebe bathes distraughtly while in her full outfit in "Phoebe Cheats".

Added DiffLines:

* LastMinuteHookup: Inevitably, between [[spoiler:Arnold and Helga]] at the end of ''The Jungle Movie''. They have one brief exchange, in the very last scene of the movie, after their official RelationshipUpgrade.

Added DiffLines:

* MistakenForThief: In "Bag of Money", Arnold, Sid, and Gerald find a paper bag of money and consider sharing it among themselves. Arnold accidentally swaps the bag for one full of birdseed belonging to an old woman on the bus and his friends think he stole the money to keep for himself.

Added DiffLines:

** Averted again in "Crush on Teacher", making this trope the source of conflict in the episode. The class's substitute teacher Ms. Felter takes a liking to Arnold, saying she likes his name. Gerald later overhears Felter talking about how she's having "dinner with Arnold". Arnold and Gerald think she's talking about him and Arnold ends up visiting her house, later to find out her fiancé is also named Arnold.

Added DiffLines:

** Sid and Lorenzo. Sid is poor, crazy, dumb, and has an ambiguous moral compass while Lorenzo is rich, quiet, smart, and very polite. "Arnold's Room" showed that Sid is desperate for Lorenzo's approval and worried his social status would make Lorenzo dislike him. Lorenzo later tells Sid he genuinely likes him as a friend and doesn't care that he doesn't have a cool room like his or Arnold's.
