There are a couple of places in the book (and I remember one in the previous book, too), where McGee gets in a bad mood, sulks, and then realizes (or Meyer tells him) that his noble notions and tarnished knight self-image give him hang-ups just like everyone else, and he's being a silly ass. He might laugh it off, or he might brood on it a bit and acknowledge he's found another flaw in himself. That introspection is something I always liked about the books.
