  • Awesome Music: The theme song.
  • Any time PJ saves Max, but three that stand out in particular are:
    • In "Big City Blues", he jumps in front of a moving bus in order to save Max.
    • In "O R-V I N-V U", he leaps onto the back of a moving vehicle and exploits all the flaws in the RV using the chestnuts he had gathered earlier (see Heartwarming.Goof Troop) to save Max from kidnappers.
    • In "Max-Imum Protection", he manages to wake up from an apparently heavy slumber by hearing Max scream "PJ, help!" from almost the distance between their houses, and cut the rope the crooks were using to chase Max with safety scissors.

  • Pete going into an active volcano to rescue Peg's first anniversary gift in "Peg o' the Jungle", and then Peg going after him once it's shown he can't climb back out.
  • In addition to the active version in "And Baby Makes Three", PJ getting passive revenge on Pete is always satisfying. Some instances:
    • Punishing Pete for refusing to pay him and Max for shoveling snow in "Winter Blunderland" by simply choosing not to tell the news reporters they captured Pete instead of Bigfoot right away.
    • Pretending to be in life-threatening danger to coax Pete into admitting to being a liar and a hypocrite in "From Air to Eternity", complete with fabricated shock reactions.
    • Technically not breaking his promise to Pete in "Tub Be or Not Tub Be." Pete never made him promise not to show that Pete was misbehaving. Also, the smug expression and pose after Pete is forced into Verbal Backpedaling.
  • The ending of "And Baby Makes Three." Seeing Pete get injured karmically by the universe is funny, but seeing the kid he's treating like a "feudal serf" (with an intensity seen here that's a contender for the absolute worst in the series) get back at him while dressed as a baby? So many shades of awesome. Especially considering this is one of the few times in the series PJ has shown himself not to be an Extreme Doormat. The best part was when PJ bit Pete's finger after the latter said "Aww... sort of reminds me of PJ, back when he was cute..." and the look on his face was priceless.

  • The way Peg shut down an angry mob about to lynch an innocent monster by demanding to know what the monster had actually done to anger them.
  • Everyone working together to get back at Pete after he swindled Goofy out of a vacation in "Wrecks, Lies, and Videotape"
  • Max admitting that he and PJ were manipulated by Leech to hide a stolen bottle of perfume for him and Leech getting arrested in "Maximum Insecurity".
  • Pete gets another moment in "Three Ring Bind" where he, in true Papa Wolf and Screw The Rules, I Have Money fashion, puts the circus ringmaster and clown in his place after the circus animals save Pistol from drowning in the river.
    Ringmaster: At least my puppy chow is safe!
    (Pete gives the ringmaster a silent glare and grabs him by the collar.)
    Pete: You're NOT gonna turn the animals that saved my daughter into doog food, see?! (reaches into his pocket and pulls out a large wad of dollar bills... which he then shoves into the ringmaster’s mouth before releasing him) They're MY animals now! So get in that mobile cage of yours and get the truck outta here!
    Ringmaster: (coughs up the dollar bills, stuttering) B-but our truck... is down there... (points towards the river)
    Pete: I know. (sports a subtle but effective grin)
    (cut to the Ringmaster and his clown lackey getting thrown off the bridge and into the river, screaming all the way)

  • Peg's epic retributive "cure" for Pete's "illness" in "To Heir Is Human". In addition to getting all the others (including Chainsaw) in on it, she makes sure to get Pete where it hurts by making him think he's losing tons of money, bite him in the butt with his own lie, and even fake the guilt trips he uses against PJ coming true. That's a great Mama Bear.


How well does it match the trope?
