* Although it's an OffscreenMomentOfAwesome, the crew pulls off the Lufthansa heist, the high point of their careers.
** And then Jimmy starts getting paranoid [[KillEmAll about all the money getting thrown about]]...
* Henry's confrontation of the guy that groped Karen.
* "I'm funny how?" - A scene that goes from CrowningMomentOfFunny to [[MoodWhiplash deadly serious]] as Tommy, known for his anger issues, starts pressing Henry about a compliment seemingly gone wrong. After a minute of horrified silence, Henry figures out Tommy is only ''joking'' about being angry, and everyone starts laughing again... The most-remembered - and parodied - part of the entire movie.
* Scorsese's level of DoingItForTheArt, right down to actually playing ''Layla'' while shooting scenes for the montage so the music would perfectly match the shots in the exact manner he wanted.
