* Dan overcoming his inner demons and genetically-linked alcoholism to achieve 15 years of sobriety.
* Every scene of Dan ministering to terminally ill patients in their last moments. Special mention goes to the last one: [[spoiler: Dan's foul-tempered, nearly compassionless coworker Fred Carling, who Dan spends most of the book hating until Fred is mortally injured by a drunk driver at the end of the story. Dan helps him die peacefully regardless of their feelings for one another, and implies that he means to give Fred's beloved dog Brownie a new home -- with Abra.]]
** The film version, which shows Dan singing a favourite song with the patient. We only see two instances, but it's a contrast from his first uncertain efforts to a time when he's growing more comfortable with his role and death in general. Singing with the patient is incredibly sweet.
