Unexpected credit bestowed for a deed or action resulting in special favor of the recipient in the brownie point giver's eyes. Negative brownie points are also avaliable and can also deduct from the brownie point count (which is never really accurate in the first place).
Adriel tried to earn brownie points for prizes but soon discovered the joy in earning brownie points is that there are no prizes, only accumulating credit resulting in the warmed heart of his friends.

The tell-tale reference points of contact made while brown nosing the BOSS; a source of recognition of one's depth perception, which is what seperates you from a simple brown noser and an all out s#!t head. If they appear behind your ears, you may want to practice holding your breath,that is if you really need that raise.
Billy brought Miss Kinky an apple,and a box of MAGNUM Condums. I think he's working on his brownie points.
