Added DiffLines:

* There's an exchange between God and Joseph up in Heaven at the beginning of the movie. When God points out that Clarence is the angel that is on the case to help George Bailey, Joseph expresses disbelief and a little bit of confusion. What is God's response to Joseph's misgivings?
--> '''God:''' He has the faith of a child.
---> Which is a big of a GeniusBonus: Frank Capra the director was a devout Catholic, and including a line like that is a very strong espousal of Catholic doctrine on faith. [[note]]Jesus once said: "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." [[/note]]

* For me, it's the scene where George is at the dinner table with his dad. Especially with what happens later that night. In a lot of fiction, if a character is killed off, the main character sometimes gets into a huge argument ("The last thing I said to him/her was that I wished I wasn't his son"), but George's comment? "Y'know, Dad, I think you're a really great guy." Just a brief moment of peace between father and son.

* When George is on the bridge crying out, "I want to live again," pay attention to what happens. He's calling out to Clarence, his guardian angel, and nothing happens. Then he breaks down and whimpers, "Please, God, let me live again"... and immediately the wind dies down and it starts to snow, showing that things have finally changed back to the way they're supposed to be.
