  • Heartwarming Moments: This series isn't short of them.

      • How Jack and Victor both met; Victor managed to save Frank McCallum from being hit by a tram, and when Jack was wondering what was going on, he and Victor would become friends ever since. During their day out, the duo meet up with Frank, and treat him for dinner. Unfortunately, ‘Frank’ (revealing himself as Davey at a random pub) left as Jack and Victor were getting some dessert out, stealing a series of items. At least a bus stopped the thief.
      • In the stinger to the same episode, Winston buys Jack and Victor drinks to celebrate, which also turns into a Funny Moment when the drinks turn out to be colourful.

    • On Victor’s 75th Birthday, Jack takes Victor on a canoe ride with Winston tagging along with an acoustic guitar. While it starts off as a perfect ride across Scotland, things change when the trio can’t come ashore and are forced to go through mishap after mishap. Just when it seems that the Neds are about to punish them for eating their lunch… both groups discover that they’re in a ship with crates of alcohol. The Neds put their differences aside and drink together with Jack, Victor and Winston celebrating Victor’s interesting birthday.
