** There's also the whole reason he wants it blown in ghe first place. He specifically mentions that destroying the bridge would mean saving thousands of lives. He might be a bitter drunk but he got that way because he cares too much about his men's lives.

* Not immediately obvious, but the final scene. Sure, Blondie leaves Tuco tied up, almost kills him, and leaves without as much as a word. But [[FridgeBrilliance think about it]]: he lets Tuco live, lets him keep his share of the gold (although God only knows how he's going to ''carry'' it), and indirectly tells him -- by shooting the rope -- that their score is settled. For a tough gunslinger, that's as close to explicitly making peace with Tuco as it possibly could be (Also, let's face it: it's ''Tuco''. The best way to make peace with him is with a good running start, just in case).

* In the extended cut, after offering liquor to a Confederate soldier for information about Bill Carson, Angel Eyes lets him keep the entire bottle. For such a cold-hearted person, that's pretty generous of him. Upon seeing the wounded and dying soldiers in the fort, he also appears to be quite moved and shakes his head sadly.

** And what's more, if you look at the Dollars Trilogy as a whole, and how ruthless Blondie is, you'll realize that the only Mexican bandit whose life we see him spare is Tuco. A very rare act of mercy indeed for such a man.

* One of the best parts is Blondie's "and after a good meal, there's nothing like a cigar". He may be cold and pragmatic throughout most of the movie, but this little gesture of friendship and willingness to play along with Tuco's lie shows that he feels compassion for him, at least a little.

It's the warm smile on Tuco's face that really sells it.

* A lost scene is described as such: Tuco, searching for Blondie, arrives to a small village close to the Mexican border, where the Confederates try to enlist the poor peones. Moved to pity, Tuco passes the hat.
