Heartwarming / You're Under Arrest!

  • Near the end of the final season, Miyuki has just walked away from the scene of an accident to find help after she and another car fall off of a cliff, and passes out from exposure to the rain, her own injuries, and exhaustion. She then has a dream where she meets Ken on the roof of their precinct building and he proposes to her. She wakes up to find Ken who, despite having a broken arm, is carrying her to safety on his back and begins saying the exact same words as Miyuki heard in her dream. She says yes.

  • Even earlier, during Sena and Daimaru's wedding, there's the scene where Ken is supposed to get a kiss on the cheek from Sena after winning an impromptu race. He actually gets one from a Miyuki who, upon Sena's request, has put on the wedding gown and poses as the bride.
  • From File 48: The End of Summer
    • Natsumi clocks out early so she can get to the airport in time to give Toukairin a piece of her mind, for throwing their last arm-wrestling match, and for leaving without telling her how he feels about her. She barely lets him get a word in edgewise, 'til he stuns her with a "Shut Up" Kiss. Natsumi recovers a few moments later, then says it herself.
    Natsumi: (softly) "I love you, Toukairin." <cue Big Damn Kiss>
  • During the Christmas episode of Season 1, Maho's family is robbed by a man dressed as Santa Claus and is so heartbroken that she now believes Santa is just another crook. Natsumi and Miyuki resolve to catch the impostor and restore Maho's faith in Christmas. The two succeed (With a little help from Strikeman) and they convince Nakajima to come to Maho disguised as the real Santa to tell her the bad Santa was stopped, and gives her a huge teddy bear for Christmas. Maho is later seen playing with it among her friends at school, her Christmas spirit stronger than ever.
    • What makes this doubly heartwarming is that Nakajima had planned to spend a romantic evening with Miyuki and went to great lengths to ensure it went off without a hitch, and selflessly gave up those plans so that Maho could be happy. Although devastated that his plans fell through, Miyuki thanks him for his profound act of kindness.

  • From File 16; Nakajima's father shows up in town and becomes enthralled with Natsumi's skill on a bike, and mistakes her as Kenny's girlfriend. The two quickly hit it off, but Natsumi quickly moves to set things right as Daimaru's affection for her causes him to underestimate Miyuki, who is again unsure of how to approach her relationship with Kenny without his Dad's approval. Natsumi sets a situation up so that Miyuki can prove herself to him and even when things don't work quite according to plan, Miyuki demonstrates herself as a brilliant driver and a worthy match for Kenny and the two finally have a moment alone to truly get to know each other.
  • One early episode in Season 2 has Miyuki spend all night with Nakajima simply teaching him how to send an email as he was entirely new to using a computer. At the end, he sends her a simple "Thank you" message, and the final shot is her making sure to save it to a folder where it will never be deleted.

  • Any time Nakajima's actions prove his feelings for Miyuki, most notably taking a shot for her, twice.
  • In season 3 when they find a little girl who mistakes the Chief for her recently deceased father, Natsumi arranges for her and the Chief to take the little girl out for a trip so that she can be with her "Papa" one last time.
    • When she finally realizes that the Chief isn't her father, she then develops a Precocious Crush on him after seeing how cool he was when he jumped onto a moving truck to save the driver who had lost consciousness. Also counts as a Moment of Awesome for the Chief.
  • During the final episode of the final season, after hearing a joke from Natsumi about them quitting the force and getting married, the three kids (Yuta, Sho and Maho) all come to the station to plead with them not to do so.
