** "I'm stepping down; I'm not running for President" from Washington. A ForegoneConclusion to the audience, but a major in-universe wham and the point where [[CerebusSyndrome everything starts going wrong for Hamilton]]. It also counts as a wham for real-life politics; as King George points out in his next song, the idea of a leader ''voluntarily'' relinquishing power was unheard of in those days, especially when one knows that Washington was so popular at the time that he could've declared himself PresidentForLife and almost nobody would've opposed him. There's a reason historians commonly rank this as among the most important political decisions ''ever made''.

* ''Theatre/{{Ragtime}}''

to:

* ''Theatre/{{Ragtime}}''''Theatre/{{Ragtime}}'': The end of the song "He Wanted To Say." Mother's Younger Brother wants to join with a [[FaceHeelTurn Face-Heel Turned]] Coalhouse, and most of the song is the things the men want to say to each other (Mother's Younger Brother wants to fight for the same reasons Coalhouse does, Coalhouse knows Mother's Younger Brother has no idea of the animosity he has experienced because of his race). However:

* ''Theatre/TheBookOfMormon'': [[spoiler: "I AM NOT YOUR BEST FRIEND! I JUST GOT STUCK WITH YOU BY THE MISSIONARY TRAINING CENTER!"]]
** There's another one in "Hasa Diga Eebowai". The first 15 or 20 minutes seem like a complete comedy that just glosses over any darker issues, but then, in the middle of all the [[CrossesTheLineTwice hilarious blasphemy]], the Ugandan villagers [[BreakingTheFourthWall sing directly to the audience]], [[spoiler: "If you don't like what we say, try living here a couple days. Watch all your friends and family die--hasa diga Eebowai!"]] It's the first indication of the show's quite serious themes.
** From the same song: "Well, let's see... 'Eebowai' means [[spoiler:'God']], and 'Hasa Diga' means [[spoiler:'fuck you']], so I guess in English, it would be... [[spoiler:'Fuck you, God.']]
** The first sign that 'Hasa Diga Eebowai' isn't exactly Hakuna Matata is "When the world is getting you down, there's nobody else to blame... [[spoiler: Raise your middle finger to the sky and curse His rotten name!]]"

** If you don't know the show going in, then Burr's line "And me? I'm the damn fool who shot him" at the end of the opening song certainly qualifies (the fact that the narrator is Aaron Burr isn't revealed until this point -- it's something of a [[FirstEpisodeSpoiler First Song Spoiler]]).
