  • James shaming a farmer into helping a neighbour hit by foot-and-mouth disease, and later losing his temper with the same man for threatening to sue him. In both cases he got a sincere apology -- and he never raised his voice, never lost control, never broke character.
  • In an early case, James is able to deduce that an ailing bull who has a dangerously high temperature is suffering from sunstroke and saves him by simply running a waterhose on him until he cools down. Later the farmer who owns the bull objects in a lecture about using modern methods by citing James who apparently just needs simple things like epson salts and cold water for his treatments.
