Heartwarming / Bar Rescue

  • Jon Taffer shows that he really wants these owners to succeed and does all he can to get them back on their feet and on their way.
    • If an owner shows absolutely no signs of reforming, Jon will pull the staff aside and do everything in his power to make sure they succeed.
  • Taffer standing up for his expert in ZanZBar, shows he really looks after the people who help him.
  • Pretty much the entirety of "Hurricane Jon vs. Hurricane Sandy." The Bungalow bar was destroyed during Hurricane Sandy and you could tell that Taffer really was glad to be able to help them get back on their feet.
    • Same goes for "Bar Over Troubled Water," when Big Mike's Sports Bar & Grill in Denham Springs, LA suffered through a terrible flood.
  • Jerry cleaning up his act and stepping up to be a commendable partner in "Hostile Takeover".
  • Even when someone pushes one of his Berserk Buttons, he's almost always willing to forgive them if they shape up and listen to him. This includes the cook from Lona's Wardlow Station, who actually shoved John Taffer and nearly got into a fight with him over the state of the kitchen.
