* The intro with the running-along-the-beach scene, shown again at the end, to a choir singing "Jerusalem." It is ''powerful.''
* Eric Liddell is knocked down by another runner, and the pack leaves him far behind. Eric gets up, runs after everyone else and wins the race - and then collapses in exhaustion. And no, it's not a marathon, or a half-marathon, or even a mile - it's a ''four hundred yard sprint.'' The character is simply ''that fast.''
* Liddell standing up to the ''Crown Prince of England.''
-->'''Cadogan''': "There's only one way to resolve the situation. That's for this man to change his mind, and run!"\\
'''Prince of Wales''': "Don't state the obvious, Cadogan. We have to explore ways in which we can help this young man to reach that decision."\\
'''Liddell''': "I'm afraid there are no ways, sir. I won't run on the sabbath, and that's final. I intended to confirm this with Lord Birkenhead tonight, even before you called me up in front of this inquisition of yours."\\
'''Cadogan''': "Don't be impertinent, Liddell."\\
'''Liddell''': "The impertinence lies, sir, with those who seek to influence a man to deny his beliefs!"
* The sermon which Liddell delivers while the race he refused to participate in is being run.
* Liddel, via voice over, as he breaks out in his famous pose.
--> '''Liddell''': I believe God made me for a purpose, but he also made me fast. And when I run I feel His pleasure.
