* NightmareFuel: The infamous part where Didi and Gogo discuss the voices of spirits, unpleased by both life and death.

** Or, even more arguably, perhaps poor old Pozzo as well. He admits he can't think for himself, and so devastated at the loss of his watch he goes blind.

** Out of the main two (Didi and Gogo) Estragon seems to be slightly more of a Woobie, mainly because he also routinely gets beaten by some unseen gang.

* AndTheFandomRejoiced -- One Broadway version starred RobinWilliams and SteveMartin. The play still didn't make any sense, but it was incredibly funny.
** That was one of the versions of the play that the Beckett estate hated due to how much they improvised, even breaking the fourth wall. Beckett is one of those playwrights whose work is considered "beyond" any kind of "fixing", and the estate are renowned for suing people who perform the play any way other than how it's written (dating back to an early-Eighties production of Beckett's ''Endgame'' that was ''extremely'' disrespectful to the text).
** The 2009 West End version starred no less than ''PatrickStewart'' as Vladamir and ''IanMcKellen'' as Estragon ([[Film/XMen not the first time]] those two had acted opposite each other, either). It should be absolutely no surprise that their performances were critically acclaimed. Stewart was replaced by Roger Rees for the international tour.



** Arguably, everybody (except perhaps for Pozzo) in the play.

** The play itself counts as this. Beckett's theater work became even more ''artistic'' and abstract as he went on.

** The play itself counts as this. Beckett himself was known for doing several ''artistic'' plays, such as a play where the audience is locked out of the theater so they can only hear the play and a play in which one sentence was spoken and then the curtains closed.
