** There's also a lovely, sentimental gesture from Jeeves in ''Much Obliged'': It's already established in earlier books that Jeeves belongs to a club for valets, who must all record the faults and antics of their employers so that whoever takes the job after them will be properly warned. Bertie's entry was apparently the largest in the book, but eventually, Jeeves decides to destroy the pages concerning Bertie since Jeeves has no desire to ever his employment.

** Bertie [[spoiler:makes a fool of himself to save everyone]]--not because they did anything to deserve it, but [[NiceGuy because he's Bertie Wooster and that's what he does]]. Jeeves: [[spoiler:"[[ATaleOfTwoCities It is a far, far better thing that you do than you have ever done]]."]]

* Another subtle one: In ''Much Obliged, Jeeves'', when Mrs [[=McCorkadale=]] comes to call on Aunt Dahlia and tells her that she has "just had a visit from a slimy, stinking slug." Bertie, who has visited her the same day (he was going around to tell people to vote for his friend Ginger in the upcoming local election, unaware that Mrs [[=McCorkadale=]] was Ginger's opponent in the same election), thinks that she's talking about him and that this was unnecessarily harsh of her -- and Aunt Dahlia makes the same assumption, as she says in an ice-cold voice: ''"Are you referring to my nephew Bertram Wooster?!"'' It's a small moment, but Aunt Dahlia's instant indignation when she thinks Bertie is being slandered really shows her devotion to him -- she's the first to hurl good-natured insults at her nephew and doesn't even mind if people question his intelligence, but she absolutely will not tolerate anyone questioning his moral character.

** And finally, [[spoiler:just when Bertie is feeling down about the fact that Jeeves is no longer his valet, Jeeves very humbly asks him if he can apply for the vacant position left by Brinkley, surprising Bertie so much that he drops the coffee pot. He's so moved and happy that he can't think of words to express his gratitude, cuing a TitleDrop]]. If you aren't swooning with joy and/or grinning all over the place by that point, you really should be reading a different series.

** [[spoiler:Bertie and Sir Roderick Glossop do the "EnemyMine" thing and find out that they have more in common than they thought. Pretty soon they're inviting each other over for lunch!]]
** Jeeves rescues Bertie repeatedly despite the fact that he's no longer technically working for him (and therefore has no reason to), cumulating in a CrowningMomentOfAwesome which leads to Bertie ''crying TearsOfJoy'' and declaring,
"Jeeves Applies there is none like you, none."

* A subtle one at the end of the fourth episode of the second season: Jeeves comments that he has returned to Bertie due to both Chuffy and Mr Stoker failing to meet the requirements for him to be employed by them - with the implication that ''Bertie'' does meet his high standards.

** I would like to concur that I found that particular scene, as Jeeves might put it, "distinctly moving". To the point where I almost broke down crying, even though I was reading the thing aloud to a friend.
