* "Thanksgiving VIII": Axl's response to Frankie telling him how much she disapproves of his relationship with April. In addition to not wanting to see or talk to her again for a while, he's more disappointed initially than he is angry. In fact, on a meta level, there's the subtly that he knows April's wrong for him and he's just too afraid or prideful to admit it because he believes Lexie, the girl he actually wants to be with, would reject him and he'd be forced to face the reality of the situation.


* The last episode of season 6. Triples as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming and CrowningMomentOfAwesome. After having a terrible final week of school (she loses her yearbook which also had her name wrong, finds out she won't win any school accomplishments, and her graduation cap and gown are the wrong size), Sue is outright forced to attend her graduation by being carried out of the house because she is certain nobody will notice her missing nor will they remember her afterwards. She's completely proven wrong as her yearbook is returned to her by classmates surrounding her, filled with signatures of the entire graduating class thanking her for the little moments and wishing her well.
