Heartwarming / Trailer Park Boys

Go To

  • Bubbles trying to spend all his savings on Rush tickets, then getting to be Alex Lifeson's guitar technician and later playing "Closer to the Heart" with him.
    • The end of the Christmas special when Bubbles finally reads the letter his parents left him. Quickly spoiled by Ricky, though.
      • Bubbles tends to get these exclusively: everyone in the park seems to love him.
    • Bubbles getting Ray a rig: "You're a trucker again, Ray."
  • Julian buying back Bill and Elvina's trailer at the end of the sixth season, leading Bubbles to say that Julian has "the biggest heart out of anybody in the trailer park."

  • Lucy and Ricky sharing a cigarette in the back of the shit mobile to an April Wine song is surprisingly romantic.
  • Ricky telling Lahey that Trinity is never gonna end up in jail.
  • After Cory and Trevor are Put on a Bus after their actors left, most of season 7 episodes have mentions of the boys saying how much they miss the pair. Ricky even says that he considered Cory and Trevor his friends, and the new jail covers will never be as good as those two. In his Insane Troll Logic, he considered Cory and Trevor his family.
  • The last episode of season seven (and former series finale, specials aside) has a surprisingly happy ending for the characters, culminating with Ricky realizing that friends and family are what matter most in life, and a brief scene showing the residents of the trailer park having a cookout.
  • The ending of the Bible Pimp episode, Corey and Trevor getting high fives from the boys as well as the whole gang watching TV in Bubbles's van.
    • Earlier, Ricky and Julian apologize to Bubbles for burning his shed as a result of their "Freedom 35" plan, and Bubbles forgiving them.
  • in the fourth seasons premier episode, Lahey and Randy go back to the supervisors trailer after getting out of jail, only to find Ricky and Trinity inside. After sending Trinity outside, Ricky calmly and politely tells Lahey and Randy, the people he hates most in the world, the trailer is no longer their home.He does, however, give them their old car back and an empty lot to live on. His reason for giving them the empty lot? He knows what it's like to get out of jail and have no place to go.
  • The season 9 finale is the most feel-good ending of any season thus far. Jacob and Trinity have found happiness together, Julian finally owns the trailer park, Ricky has his family back, and even Barb, Sarah and Donna are very happy in jail.
    • And before that, Jacob finally earns some respect from Ricky when he goes to jail for the boys. Before being carted away, he asks Ricky to propose to Trinity on his behalf while he's gone, and Ricky gladly obliges.

    • Cory getting to hold Jacob and Trinity's baby and congratulating him, excited to be its honorary uncle, with no joke to be had from the scene. As Cory (and Jacob) is usually the Butt-Monkey, it's nice to watch him have a rare moment of unchallenged happiness.
  • First episode of season 3, Ricky has blown through almost all of the money he made from the previous season's pot scheme, and chooses to spend his final $5,000 on the encyclopedias he ordered for Trinity instead of a trailer for himself. For collateral, he'd told Lahey that if he couldn't pay up for the trailer, he'd kiss his bare ass in public: the ultimate humiliation. Ricky really loves his daughter. Bonus points for Ray giving Ricky back the Shitmobile, which he'd taken knowing that his son would waste his newfound wealth and need it back, and then Lucy dropping the child support lawsuit she was preparing against him, realizing that it was more important for Ricky to spend time with his daughter.
  • The season 10 finale. Randy bawling about how even despite all the bitterness of the past season, he loves the gang, and he can't stand to see them tearing each other apart. This helps to finally convince Barb to soften up and not evict everyone (except Julian, for all his transgressions over the past year.)
    Randy: I love ya, Ricky! I love ya like a brother! I don't like ya at all, but I love ya!
  • J-Roc's mother seeing how destroyed he is after one of his favorite rap artists calls him a 'punk' for pirating his music, (as he stops acting like himself and actually starts going out of his way act how he thinks 'white' people should act) and asking the man to just to talk to him because what he thinks 'means the world to him.' Perhaps even more heartwarming is that the rap artist agrees. He was just mad the kid was pirating his music, he didn't mean to crush him, especially when he's such a huge fan.
  • Any moment Ricky is with his daughter Trinity.
  • Ricky's heartfelt thanks to Lahey for saving his life in the season 5 finale.
    • In the same episode what Ricky believes will be his last words?
    Ricky: Bubs... you gotta look after Trinity.
  • After Ricky gets shot and put in a coma counts. Sarah, one of Ricky's biggest detracters, was so upset she openly cried, Lucy and Trinity were absolutely devastated, while Bubbles and Julian are in visible shock. Afterwards Trinity decided to get married right in Ricky's hospital room, as she won't get married without her father present.
    • Julian giving Trinity away since Ricky can't.
  • Lahey and Barb doting on Mo in season 11.
  • When Ricky finds out Lahey is his biological father, he's extremely upset until Bubbles and Julian assure him that even if Lahey's his father, Ray will always be his dad.
    • When it's eventually revealed via blood test that neither Lahey or Ray could be Ricky's father, Julian and Bubbles tell Ricky that Lahey isn't his father, but choose to keep the part about Ray a secret.
