Dick Tracy (the comic strip)

    • In recent years, pretty much any scene involving the Mole and the formerly homeless woman who has become his girlfriend, and her little daughter Toad.
  • Several times over the tears Tracy would refuse to take a criminal in because he saw them celebrating the holidays with their family.
    "What am I supposed to do? Drag a man away before his daughter's eyes on Christmas Day?"

Dick Tracy (the movie)


  • The montage with Tracey and Tess spending a day out with the Kid, even giving him a new suit and a catchers mitt as some gifts.
