- Despite acknowleding herself the obligatory professional distance between master and servant, Kanade warmly tells Subaru in Episode 4 after being rescued:
"Stay by my side as a butler from this day.... and the rest of my life as my friend. That's an order."
- Almost everything Jiro does for Subaru could qualify. However, the best ones:
- When he reassures her he wouldn't die in episode 4.
- When he visits her mother's grave in episode 8.
- After he goes to great lengths to allow Subaru to remain a butler in episode 12.
