* Matilda tricking and humiliating her father, in both the book and film versions.
** Doubly so in the book's version of the glue-in-the-hat incident, with Matilda innocently saying to her father "What's the matter, Daddy? Has your head suddenly gotten bigger?"
** Hard not to love the movie version, too, is the incident when Matilda puts superglue on Harry's hat:

** That scene gets its own song in the musical. The music as he finishes the cake is the CrowningMoment of a [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome very good song.]]
* From the musical, we have Agatha Trunchball's little... digression in the middle of 'The Smell of Rebellion'. Up till this point she's been singing about how she intends to weed out rebellious students from the school, and then suddenly she starts singing this. Full warning, ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext.
--> Miss Trunchbull: Imagine a world with no children/ Close your eyes and just dream./ Imagine... come on, try it, the peace and the quiet/ a bubbling stream/ Now imagine a woods with a cottage,/ and inside that cottage we find/ a dwarf called Zeke, a carnival freak/ who can fold paper hats with his mind, and he says/ Don't let them steal your horses, no!/ Don't let them throw them away, no!/ If you find your way through, they'll be waiting for you/ singing... neigh! Neiiigh!
* Also from the musical, before Bruce starts eating the cake:
--> '''Miss Honey:''' Headmistress, he'll be sick!
--> '''Miss Trunchbull:''' He should have thought of that before he made a ''pact'' with ''Satan'' and decided to '''steal my cake'''!
