Honey, I Shrunk the Kids

  • Russ Junior's Big Brother Instinct towards Nick. Goes to show how much of a Nice Guy he is, that he doesn't hold any grudge towards the Szalinskis.
  • Anty, the ant, refusing to leave the kids despite Ron telling her that he's free to go.
    • Later, while scouting around (probably for food) Anty comes back and rescues the kids from the Scorpion when she hears Ron cry out.
  • Diane clinging to Wayne after he says he feels the same way about getting the family back together.

Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves

  • Before getting into the bubble machine, Wayne and Diane admit to loving everything about each other.
  • The Daddy Longlegs whom, after being rescued by the parents from a spider web, helps them out in turn.
  • The ending, where Wayne gives his brother Gordon the title of president of Szalinski Labs.
