  • Albert saving David, the son of his family's cruel landlord on the battlefield. He had been a real Jerk Ass to him up until this point, making fun of Albert for carrying around drawings of his horse.

    • This becomes even more heartwarming later, when Albert is forced to auction Joey; David, who's an officer, tried to say the horse was his so Albert could keep Joey.
