* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: "I have been looking for you all night... and, I believe, all of my life."
* LesYay: Teased between Guinevere and Delysia; at one point Delysia kisses Guinevere on the lips. When Guinevere sees Delysia naked, she says, "You are ''beautiful''."
* {{Tearjerker}}: The song number "If I Didn't Care".
** Also the quiet exchange between Miss Pettigrew and Joe, the oldest characters in the movie who lived through WorldWarI, when the "young set" are pointing excitedly at the planes flying overhead:
-->'''Guinevere''': They don't remember the last one, do they.
-->'''Joe''': No. They don't.
** Also when Miss Pettigrew tenderly asks Joe Blomfield, as he's reading the newspaper article about Hitler's invasions, if he "knew people" (who had been rounded up by the Nazis).
** Guinevere and Delysia only knew each other for one day before Delysia and Michael left for New York.
* ValuesDissonance: 70 years passed between the writing of the book and the making of the movie. Consequently, when the movie came about, some of the sentiments expressed in the book (particularly about Jews and foreigners) had disappeared. It's not hard to see why. There remains some DeliberateValuesDissonance, mainly in that attitudes of the sexes about appropriate touching and honesty between genders.
