Added DiffLines:

* The closing credits not only show photos of the characters, but also the cast and crew from behind-the-scenes. The last photo is a large one with ''everyone''. And it literally comes to a close as the photo album closes.

* As much as ''4'' gets flack for being the weakest of the series, there are a number of big heartwarming moments near the end.
** The first is when Riggs is [[spoiler:trapped under a chunk of concrete underwater, and Murtaugh is searching for him desperately. Murtaugh yells out for Riggs to will him towards his location, and he ''somehow'' knows to dive underwater to save him. For bonus points, this is the one time they agree to go on the count of 3 with no discussion.]]

* Leo's poignant story about his pet frog Froggie. Also a bit of a TearJerker.
** A subtle moment: Riggs tries to apologise for him and Roger always picking on Leo. Leo's response is "it's ok, it's ok", but not said in his usual frenetic annoying matter, but very calmly and reflecting a greater amount of maturity.
* Roger trying to teach his son how to shave after accidentally killing one his best friends. The film could have played up blaming him for the shooting: nooope, he blames his friend for getting involved in guns. So do the dead boy's family, who rather than be angry at Roger are angry at the gang their son was in.
** Doesn't stop Daryl's mother from slapping Roger.

to:

* The very end of ''3'', which is a BookEnd to the start of the original film. Murtaugh's family surprise him with a cake to celebrate his retirement whilst he's having a bath, but he tells them that he wants to stay on the force for a bit longer. They completely support his decision, even after all the times he's almost died since the original film.
** Then he pulls Trish into the tub after their children have left. Awwww.
