* Gibbs is the stand-in for every single computer pioneer who ever lived (a late middle-aged man in 1982) who still has the streak of rebellion and vision. His actor, Barnard Hughes went from complete confusion over the arcade game craze to hero for young programmers, something he was proud of up til his death in 2006.
* When Flynn explains to Tron and Yori that Users are just as fallible as Programs. While disbelieving at first, Tron seems to take the revelation in stride. Perhaps because he now knows both group have something in common.

Added DiffLines:

* Ram expressing what he used to be, before he became a gamer that he worked for an insurance company. It's a crowning moment of funny as well, but it's also touching to know a computer program is just as enthusiastic about genuinely helping people as the people that created him.

--> '''Tron''': If you are a User, then everything you've done has been according to a plan.
--> '''Flynn''': You wish. You guys know what it's like... you just keep doin' what it looks like you're supposed to be doin', no matter how crazy it seems.
--> '''Tron''': That's the way it is for programs, yes.
--> '''Flynn''': I hate to disappoint ya, pal, but most of the time, that's the way it is for Users, too.
--> '''Tron''': (''more amazed than disappointed'') Stranger and stranger.

* The ending scene. Alan and Lora are waiting on the rooftop helicopter pad for "the boss." Copter lands, and Flyn rushes out, gives his pals a hug, and off they go. The last shot is the Los Angeles skyline fading from daylight to nighttime. The dark sky, bright lights, and neon make the human world look almost indistinguishable from {{cyberspace}}, silently saying human and Program are NotSoDifferent.

* The cut scene where Yori brings Tron back to her home. She shows him that she still has a playful and rebellious streak (like her User counterpart, who essentially splits the difference between the overly-serious Alan and the less-than-serious Flynn), turning the barren apartment into a beautiful paradise for him and then taking the time to... [[IfYouKnowWhatIMean interface]].

* The I/O Tower. You hear of Programs speaking of the Users like we speak of Gods, but when Tron finally steps into the I/O beam and connects with Alan, the sheer ''joy'' on Tron's face truly delivers how important and powerful the need for Programs to contact their users is.
