Added DiffLines:

** A very brief, minor moment in the same episode when Thunderbird 1 approaches and one of the personnel has to sit down in disbelief when reading its speed. It really shows off how ahead of their time the Thunderbirds are.
* The Firefly's appearance in 'City of Fire', and just how much punishment it can take.
* Thunderbird 1 being shot down in 'The Uninvited'. Similarly, Thunderbird 2's crash in 'Terror in New York City'. They are played completely differently: The first comes straight out of nowhere and is played for pure shock value. The second is a drawn-out sequence that shows the beloved big green 'bird get utterly thrashed.


Added DiffLines:

* '30 minutes after Noon': Scott dropping the explosive bracelets in the ocean ''just'' as they are about to explode.

* In "Attack of the Alligators", all the problems of the episode get solved the moment Thunderbird 2 shows up.
** They scare the mutant alligators away with the landing gear (the smoke and the fire), gun down the retreating alligators then send Thunderbird 4 to retrieve the last chemical from the river.
* Fireflash's landing in the pilot episode.
* In vault of Death, Scot and Virgil can't cut into the vault door, and the only key is too far away. They go into the subway to cut through the wall instead. Meanwhile Parker, outside the vault, asks lady Penelope for a Hairpin. In the time it takes Scot and Virgil to cut in, Parker manages to unlock the state of the art door using ''nothing except that one hairpin''

** As universally-loathed as the movie is, the redesigns of the Thunderbird craft were pretty awesome. And admit it, you felt a rush of adrenaline when those ships launched for the first time.
