* Mr. Knightley, when he offers to dance with Harriet after she is snubbed by the pompous and mean-spirited Mr. Elton. Even more awesome since she regards this as more exciting and memorable than being rescued from [[SarcasmMode very scary]] gypsies by Frank Churchill.
* Mr. Knightley when he admits his own faults during [[spoiler:his proposal to Emma]] and says he loves her, believing her "faultless in spite of her faults" and that she has borne his rather frequent lectures "as no other woman in England would have".
* Emma herself in her epic, chapter-long epiphany near the end of the novel, in which she not only realizes how wrongly she has thought and acted, but also that she is [[spoiler:in love with Mr. Knightley]]. That level of intelligent self analysis by a spoiled child is really impressive -- all the more so as she directly decides to do the right thing instead of scheming to supplant her rivals.
* Emma's post-Box Hill thoughts and actions are also highly awesome. She genuinely regrets what she did and she knows how to make amends.
