* "The School Song" sequence in the musical where two dancers would climb on the school gates as alphabet blocks are inserted through the holes and they adeptly climb on them [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GyHbPBW3B90 on lyrical cue.]]
* Matilda's class [[spoiler: standing up to the Trunchbull]] in the musical. By ''misspelling words.''
* In the musical, Matilda rallies the students to cover up the Trunchbull's latest victim with their coats, then tells the headmistress that the boy suffers from narcolepsy, and therefore couldn't be guilty of the (imagined) crime. Not only does this show Matilda using her cleverness to help others, but the fact that the rest of the kids are willing to go along with the charade foreshadows the "strength in numbers" message of the musical as a whole.
* Also in the musical: the choreography of "School Song" is a ''triumph''.
* Again from the musical, Matilda standing up to Ms. Trunchbull during gym class when she starts tormenting a young boy.

* Matilda gets a bit of one when she calls out her dad on his monstrous sham of a used-car-lot....and the glued-on-hat prank she plays after he berates her for calling him out.
* Trunchbull ''really chewing out'' Harry Wormwood over the car he sold her at the start of her house rampage. [[note]]"....shove it up your bazooga!", indeed![[/note]]
* The Feds likely got this when they nailed the Wormwoods in Guam.

!!The book



** Miss Honey also gets one in both the book and the film when she calls Mr. Wormwood out for considering some stupid TV show (in the book, it was a soap opera; in the movie, it was a televised boxing match) more important than his daughter.
** And again when Matilda's dad makes disparaging comments about college-educated people and Miss Honey points out that educated people have a place in the world (if, Heaven forbid, Matilda's dad had a heart attack, the doctor that cared for him would have been college-educated or, if Matilda's dad was sued for selling faulty cars, his lawyer would have been college-educated).

* In the scene before the scene with Trunchbull's comeuppance....Matilda goes to Trunchbull's house and uses her telekinesis to simulate a haunting. Among the chaos; Ms. Trunchbull's portrait (of her as an Olympic athlete standing on the field with a javelin) flies off the mantle into the fireplace (and gets burned to ash) and the portrait of Magnus flies down the stairs and takes it's rightful place on the mantle!

* During the two-times tables class discussion, Miss Honey explains that eventually they'd be able to multiply any numbers, whether it was 2 x 7 which the class answers correctly as 14, or 13 x 379, which most of the class is amused by, but Matilda, in about one second, answers 4927, shocking everyone, especially after Miss Honey multiplies it by hand and determines she was correct.

** Similarly, Matilda, followed by her fellow students, standing up and cheering for Bruce to continue when he shows signs of giving up, continuing to support him even as the Trunchbull screams for quiet. It's their cries and cheers that give Bruce the strength he needs to polish off the whole cake, even licking the platter!
