* Smith is justifiably upset when the Paparazzi mock him in the papers, but you've gotta admit, "His First Whiff of Washington" is ActuallyPrettyFunny.

* Poor {{adorkable}} Smith fidgeting with his hat when he is flustered to be talking to the attractive Susan Paine. The camera keeps focus squarely on the ''hat'' for the whole scene.

* When Jeff first arrives in Washington, he leaves his escort for a dazzled sight-seeing tour. Meanwhile, Payne, Saunders, and everyone else is going nuts with worry and frustration. So, when Jeff finally makes his way into his office and nervously pokes his head in the door, Saunders's first reaction is to bark at him to beat it.

* The scene at the Lincoln Memorial when Jefferson Smith overhears a little boy standing next to an elderly man (probably the boy's grandfather) and reading the "Gettysburg Address". During this, an elderly black man walks up and takes off his hat. Knowing the year the movie was made it is very possible that both men, white and black, were old enough to remember those events. Its even possible the black man may have been born a slave.
** The above is probably more a [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming CMoH]].

--> '''Jeff''': Oh, well Mr. President, we seem to be alone. I, I'm not complaining for a social reason; it's just, I think it'd be a pity if these gentlemen missed any of this, and... And, uh... I, I call the chair's attention to... to, uh... Rule 5 of the Standing Rules of the Senate, Section... Section 3. "If it shall be found that a quorum is not present, a majority of the Senators present" ...and that looks like me... uh, "may direct the Sergeant-at-Arms to request, and if necessary compel, the attendance of the absent Senators." Well, Mr. President, I so direct.
