* When adjusted for inflation, this is ''still'' the highest-grossing movie ever made, which doesn't look like it's being broken any time soon.

* The ending. As Scarlett breaks down after saying goodbye to a dying Melanie and failing to stop Rhett from leaving, she remembers her father's words about Tara. And just as she did before, she gathers her strength and ''swears'' to return to Tara and find a way to get Rhett back.

After all the tragedy she's been through in the past year, Scarlett refuses to be brought down by it.

** Even before this, Gable outright threatened to ''quit'' the film when he discovered the segregated facilities for the African-American cast members.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S72nI4Ex_E0 "All we got is Cotton, Slaves, and Arrogance!"]] speech. Rhett manages to deflate the inflated fantasies of a roomful of Southern Gentlemen who are convinced they will defeat the Yankees by pointing out that the North have a fully equipped Navy and Army along with factories that can make weapons with a great sense of calm and dignity.
** [[SilkHidingSteel Ashley]] declares he will fight for the South but it's a sad, sad thing if things aren't even attempted to be resolved peacefully while warding off any criticisms of his more hot-blooded peers and gently telling Charles that there is no way he'd win in a fight with Rhett when the latter was accused of cowardice.

* The fairly obvious one: Scarlett thundering to the heavens her famous "As God is my witness" speech.

** Then Scarlett and Melanie, two "delicate flowers" raised in the most gentle of environments (at least until the war started), calmly search through the dead Yankee's belongings, then proceed to cover up the evidence of the murder (including getting rid of the body) by themselves, without even letting anyone in the family know what had happened.
** Let's not forget how effortlessly Melanie came up with a plausible lie when Scarlett's father and sisters heard the gunshot.
* The first time we see Rhett in the movie. He didn't do anything but crack his Creator/ClarkGable smile while looking up at Scarlett yet he looks... ''awesome''.

** A bit of context: after years upon years of having her own way and essentially stepping on people, Scarlett ''finally'' gets told off. The line is Rhett cementing that, no matter what she tries, Scarlett ''cannot'' win this one.
