** Doubles as a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for the business. Sadly it [[spoiler: [[TearJerker shut down due to poor business dealings.]] Luckily she's still got catering business.]]

** Adding to the MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment when Daniel's father realizes he's turned into his own father and apologizes to his son. Who knows what happened from then, but here's hoping they can fix their relationship.

* In the Oceana restaurant, after numerous, almost violent, confrontations with the co-owners Moe and Rami, Moe becoming so upset over the stress of allowing Gordon to have full control of the restaurant that he actually throws up, Gordon brings the staff in the next morning, blindfolded. When they remove the blindfolds, everyone loves the changes, but Moe remains silent for a moment seeming like he might be angry, before gushing that he loves what Gordon has done, and in particular, the new duck recipe, which he had butted heads with Gordon about before, fully embraces it, saying it's some of the best food he's ever had, and cheerfully hugging his brother as they prepare to open. They get off to a rocky start on opening night, but it was still nice to see Moe, Rami, and Gordon getting along for a change.

** The reveal on how Gordon revised the restaurant: [[spoiler: He made it a full fledged tribute to John's parents, showing that even though the restaurant has to change in order to fit in with the times, it ''still'' will be in their honor]]. John's reaction is just as beautiful and sweet as well.

** The ending counts as well. The family that owns Yanni's is incredibly combative with each other and none more so than Peter, the owner, head chef, and overall patriarch of the restaurant. After Gordon delivers them an ultimatum, he finally admits he needs to change and move forward with the times and adapts to it surprisingly well. After revising the menu and allowing Gordon's team to renovate the restaurant, he is so moved by the change that he starts crying tears of joy and once they start dinner service, he is clearly excited to be turning over a new leaf. The return to the restaurant also shows he hasn't wavered and everyone else is in much higher spirits as a result.

** Furthermore, their only daughter who all but carried their restaurant on her back during its big relaunch and had proved to have something of a gift in the kitchen is given a boost by Ramsay who personally helped pay for further culinary education.

** Also Daniel's fiance Wendy, who won't take any of the shit his parents are giving him at ''all'', defending him to her best ability, and sticking with him despite the awful situation he's in.

* "The Dovecoat" (UK): Ramsay enters a restaurant where the owner is driving his business into the ground and his bullheaded attitudes have nearly broken up the family. By the time Gordon leaves, the business ''and'' family are going well...and they still are when Gordon comes back a few weeks later.

* In the US episode Black Berry's, Gordon has had two plates of bland food, and one plate that sent him retching to the bathroom. When he receives his dessert, he takes one bite, declares it delicious, and gives the chef (an 82 year old woman) a kiss on the cheek.
* In the episode "The Runaway Girl", the self-taught head chef has had to deal with the arrogance of the restaurant owner, who happens to also be his school-boy friend, and was forced to cook sub-par dishes as a misguided cost-saving measure. It's clear he's depressed and ashamed about it. A bit later into the episode, after proving just what a good cook he is, Gordon takes him aside and begins doling out the compliments. He has to stop when the big guy who just minutes ago (to the viewers) was screaming even louder than Gordon at the owner, [[ManlyTears begins to cry]]. Gordon even gives him a hug!

* "Yanni's": Treya, who is very upset and suffering emotionally from the turmoil amongst the family, is treat like a hazzard. Everyone tells her to stop it or shout at her. Ramsay however is visibly upset she's treated as such. He talks to her for a short while only for him to admit he is sorry that he only came to help the restuarant. It's clear he understands her feelings and wants to help her.
* "Pantaleone": The restaurant's food was terrible and the owner/chef was too arrogant to even admit there was a problem, still riding high on praise he'd received in 1985. After both seeing the results of a public taste test(his pizza fared worse than frozen store pizza) and realizing that his attitude and the failing restaurant was tearing his own family apart, he finally agreed to some massive changes. They are still in business and still family-owned and operated.
* "The Old Neighborhood": When Gordon arrived, the entire building was in poor condition, littered with junk, and the food was terrible. The owners were in severe debt as a result. After Gordon shut the kitchen down due to the unsanitary conditions, the husband & wife owners break down into tears and finally agree to allow some massive changes. The end result was a new menu, a renovated interior and all of the hoarded junk being thrown out. Unfortunately, they decided to close on May 1st 2016.
* You can feel the collective sigh of relief when Gordon tells the Mama Maria's staff that the customer that had been hospitalized the previous day from a rotten lobster made a full recovery and was released.
