  • When Yuri receives a message from a childhood friend and learns that he's been kidnapped, Chief Gooley informs her that 3WA, not being the police, but a business, can't stage a rescue without a contract. As soon as he says that, the phone rings with an contract for the rescue. It was Kei who made the call, of course.
    • Even more heartwarming, Yuri had, just some moments before, expressed her desire to retire after that mission and settle down with her childhood friend. Even if the plot of course wouldn't allow that, Kei still believed that by saving him she was basically letting her best friend go. Yet, she did.
      • Doubles as a funny moment: lacking the needed funds, she gingerly confessed having used Yuri's money.
  • In one episode, Kei and Yuri are tricked into believing millionaire's Moon de Goldjeff's son Clicky was kidnapped by a woman named Lilis Joanca. As the episode's beginning showed, Joanca is actually Clicky's girlfriend and rescued him from being forced into marriage to someone else. When the girls find out they've been played, Moon reveals he hates Joanca because she's a trans woman, and in his words, "She used to be a man!" This receives the following responses:
    • Clicky screams at his father "I don't care about her past! Joanca's a woman now and that's all that matters!" In fact, Clicky was well aware of Joanca's past and was shown getting upset when it looks like his father's hatred of her is getting to her. He refuses to allow Joanca to think poorly of herself just because of who she used to be.

    • Kei and Yuri are disgusted by Moon's hatred, calling his thinking outdated and pointing out at least ten percent of the galactic population is transgender. They immediately do everything they can to stop Clicky and Joanca from being separated again.
    • Hell, even with how much Moon hates Joanca, he still acknowledges she's a woman and uses the proper pronouns.
    • When Moon sends Joanca on a rocket ship which, to Joanca the voyage will last a day while it will really be fifty years long, Clicky gets into another rocket so he won't have to wait another five decades to be with her again. Moon, suffering a My God, What Have I Done? moment, launches himself on the last available rocket; the Angels wonder who'll have to deal with the three of them in fifty years. However, Kei and Yuri promise they'll try to help Clicky and Joanca in the future even if by then they've become old ladies.
      • Coming off this, Kei is genuinely impressed by Clicky's assertiveness and determination to be with Joanca and believes him to be a real man. Seeing his refusal to let his father stop him from being with Joanca is what convinces Kei to do everything she can to help them.
