* Snape calls Hermione "an insufferable little know-it-all" when she answers a question out of turn. Harry acknowledges [[HypocriticalHumor almost everyone in the class thinks Hermione is indeed a know-it-all]], [[Jerkass Snape was totally out of line for calling her that]]. Ron gets detention for calling him out on it, but it's the principal of the thing.

* Harry's flight on Buckbeak. Especially the moment when they're flying over a lake and Harry sits up, spreads his arms out, and whoops in joy!

* Harry's flight on Buckbeak. Especially the moment when they're flying over a lake and Harry sits up, spreads his arms out, and whoops in joy!joy! Particularly since in the book Harry doesn't enjoy the flight (which is depicted as short, stilted and awkward) at all. It's nice to see him having a chance for a bit of fun.

* Ron has had his leg broken by a deranged murderer (he is led to believe) and can basically be defeated by a stiff wind. So he tells that same murderer, if he wants Harry, he'll have to [[GoThroughMe go through him.]] Creator/SteveKloves can be safely ignored on this front: Ron is Harry's man, through and through.

* Ron has had his leg broken by a deranged murderer (he is led to believe) and can basically be defeated by a stiff wind. So he tells that same murderer, while standing on said broken leg, probably through excruciating pain, placing himself between them, if he wants Harry, he'll have to [[GoThroughMe go through him.]] Creator/SteveKloves can be safely ignored on this front: Ron is Harry's man, through and through.

* Hermione using the spell 'Bombarda' to dramatically break open Sirius's cell. Bonus for accompanying awesome music.

** What's more awesome is that the punch fazed Malfoy so much, that he and his colleagues ''immediately'' [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere booked it]]. Malfoy then looked back at Hermione donning a look of ''terror''. If that's not awesome, what is?

** What's more awesome is that the punch fazed Malfoy so much, that he and his colleagues ''immediately'' [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere booked it]]. Malfoy then looked back at Hermione donning a look of ''terror''. If that's not awesome, what is? This moment is now easily one of the most iconic of the films.


Added DiffLines:

* A Meta example: the extremely minor scene when [=MacNair=], the executioner, eerily grins at Harry when he passes by. ''Goblet of Fire'' reveals [=MacNair=] to be a Death Eater, adding a new level of depth to the tiny, otherwise inconsequential scene. While [=MacNair=] never does anything else in the series notable besides preside over Buckbeak's execution, it's a very coy, ShownTheirWork type of {{Foreshadowing}} that must be given credit, and may have been unintentional!

Added DiffLines:

* And not long before, Hermione piecing together three or four small bits of information not once, but ''twice'', both in the span of seconds, to create a StableTimeLoop and ensure that what needs to happen happens.
** Once, when she beans Harry with an odd-shaped rock she remembers seeing to make him realize that they're about to get caught so they'll leave Hagrid's hut.
** And then distracting the werewolfed-out Lupin with a fake call to get him to come towards them instead, because they're in exactly the right place at the right time and a werewolf only responds to the call of another werewolf.

* [[KidsAreCruel Boy scouts]] [[TheBully they weren't,]] but the Marauders - a bunch of teenagers not much older than Harry and his friends were at the time of this book - not only learned the highly advanced process of becoming Animagi ([[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming for the sake of a friend]], but also created a detailed map of the near ''entirety'' of Hogwarts Castle that is also capable of tracking the location of any student that sets foot there. It's stated to work well enough that Harry can use it nearly twenty years after its creation... [[spoiler: and implied to still work just as well after nearly ''another'' quarter-century, at which point WordOfGod says Harry's son (fittingly named for two of the Marauders) takes the map for himself.]] The fact that they innovated such a powerful magical artifact at probably around '''14 years old''' speaks to some ''immense'' talent.
