* In the miniseries, of the darkly humorous kind, when General Starkey gives the order to confiscate an incriminating videotape from a news crew by any means necessary. It is Ed Harris' sarcastic tone of voice and expressions that sell it,conveying very well that Starkey knows such an errand is a useless gesture in light of the virus being out of control, but he just can't think of anything else to do.
-->'''Maj. Creighton:''' We have a rather large problem in Wyoming, sir.\\
'''Gen. Starkey:''' ''<looking at the monitor with a thousand-yard stare>'' What ''large'' problem is that, Len?
'''Maj. Creighton:''' News team got out of Pine Bluff with some potentially damaging videotape, sir.
'''Gen. Starkey:''' Flu victims? Body dumps?
'''Maj. Creighton:''' Little of both... And our ops, I'm told.
'''Gen. Starkey:''' Ah, well we can't have ''that''.
'''Maj. Creighton:''' No sir, I know.
'''Gen. Starkey:''' Showing footage like that would not be in the national interest!

* The miniseries has considerably more humor than the book, but the funniest moment is Lloyd and Poke's EstablishingCharacterMoment as they speed drunkenly down the freeway, treating one of their guns like a microphone.

* Stu, when being quarantined by the government, has all of his questions shot down on the grounds that they were classified. So he launches into a fake coughing fit to freak out the doctor. The doctor nearly has a heart attack and demands to know why he faked it. Stu grins and tells the doctor that it's classified.

* Most of the scenes with Nick Andros and Tom Cullen, particularly toward the beginning. They're the only two survivors for miles. One of them is deaf and mute, and the other one is mentally retarded and illiterate. The fact that they manage to survive and work together can also double as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming.
