** What really sold the sequence was the audio, which sounds like no other cinematic gunfight. None of the gunshots were added in post. Instead, the sound was captured live during filming with carefully placed microphones.

* The bank robbery sequence. The most believable, most intense cops-and-robbers shootout committed to film. When a ''real'' bank robbery in L.A. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_Hollywood_shootout happened a few years later]], nearby citizenry thought someone was filming a ''Heat'' sequel.

The coffee scene's already mentioned.
* The armored car robbery is also just as much as CrowningMomentOfAwesome as it is an EstablishingCharacterMoment for each member of the crew. * Uh, hello? It's DE NIRO AND PACINO on screen together! Nothing else needs to be said!

* The famous coffee scene. Not only is is a Crowning Moment for the movie and cinema in a meta sense (as it's the first time Al Pacino and Robert De Niro ever shared the screen in the same scene in a movie), but also for the characters in the movie; in a film which isn't without its bombastic and grand moments of awesome, it's strangely fitting that its most compelling moment should be a simple, quiet scene where two protagonists share a coffee, have a pleasant conversation and discovering that, despite the fact that they work on polar opposite sides of the law, they're [[NotSoDifferent two similar guys]] [[WorthyOpponent who actually kind of like each other.]]

* Al Pacino utterly discombobulating Hank Azaria's character (and Hank Azaria himself, as this was an ad-lib) with, ''Cause she's got a GREAT ASS!!! And you've got your head ALL THE WAY UP IT!!!''

** Whenever this editor sees the word "discombobulate," he reflects back to the fight between Sherlock Holmes and the giant bruiser in the 2009 movie. The mental image of Al Pacino boxing Hank Azaria's ears seemed too good not to share.
