!!The Movie
* The entire confrontation in the boiler room.
** J.D. refuses to tell Veronica [[spoiler:how to disable the bomb, and flips her off.]] Veronica responds by [[spoiler:shooting his middle finger off]].
* J.D. scaring the shit out of Ram and Kurt in the cafeteria. Nasty and sort of psychotic? Yes. But did they deserve it? Yes.
* Veronica telling off the hippie teacher in the final act for saying an incredibly insensitive speech ("Whether or not to commit suicide is a big choice every teenager must face") was awesome.
* As an awkward teen in the Eighties, the whole concept of a revenge fantasy against the bullying jerks was awesome. From the epitome of cool that JD and Veronica embodied, to the audacity in their actions and the slick way they talked, the movie was a great big "YEAH!"
* During the scene where the Heathers + Veronica are playing croquet, Chandler knocks [[ButtMonkey Duke's]] ball ''way'' off to the side, behind the fountain. Heather Duke makes the shot anyway, hitting it against the statue and sending it against the tree and then to the goal.
* Veronica, bloodied, disheveled and singed, lightning a cigarette off of the defeated JD's explosion.
* Veronica giving an ArmorPiercingSlap to Heather Duke for making cruel comments regarding [[spoiler:Martha's attempted suicide.]]
* The sheer amount of quotable lines the film (especially J.D.) has produced is a meta moment of awesome.

!!The Musical
* The angelic chanting as the Heathers enter in "Beautiful" is one for the titular trio. Similarly, "Candy Store" may celebrate their mean, degrading lifestyle, but damned if it isn't [[DoNotDoThisCoolThing glamorous!]]
* J.D.'s entry to the house in "Yo Girl" is CreepyAwesome at its finest.
--> ''Time's up, go say your prayers!''
* The ghosts of Veronica's victims giving her TheReasonYouSuckSpeech in "Yo Girl".
* The boiler room scene actually manages to be ''more'' awesome in the musical. In the movie, Veronica holds a gun to J.D., which was pretty badass. However, in the musical, he pulls the gun on ''her'', and what does she do? She calmly keeps walking towards him, even as the thing's barely an inch from her head, still trying to talk J.D. down! Girl's got guts.
* A villainous one for J.D. in "Our Love Is God". It's a very memorable VillainSong and his killing of Kurt and Ram would be hard to make more satisfying, and especially after what they've done throughout the show, listening to the guitar riff as J.D. forces Kurt to beg for his life is surprisingly cathartic.
--> ''The dinosaurs will turn to dust, they'll'' '''''die''''' ''because we say they must''.
* A weird example in "I Love My Dead Gay Son", but, despite what happens beforehand, the two fathers are able to overcome their homophobia and end up together. Doubles as a CMOF.
* The live performance of "Meant to Be Yours." In the hands of a less skilled actor, it would be {{Narm}}, but in the hands of Ryan [=McCartan=] and/or Dave Thomas Brown and/or Dan Domenech, it's absolutely chilling.
* "Lick it up, baby. LICK. IT. ''UP''."
* Martha [[spoiler:piecing together that Ram's death was a murder, the suicide note was faked, and that J.D. is the killer.]] The only thing she didn't figure out was a motive and that Veronica was involved. Granted, [[spoiler:Veronica lies to cover her ass and gets Martha to think she was wrong]], but you still have to hand it to her! [[spoiler:Even Heather Chandler's ghost seems impressed.]]
* The ending of "Beautiful," with the result of TheMakeover being revealed. It's minor compared to all the others in the show, but it's impossible not to cheer when Veronica walks in, looking like a complete knockout, with a whole load of new self-confidence.
-->''Ask me how it feels,''\\
''lookin' like Hell on wheels!''\\
''My God, it's beautiful.''\\
''[[BeautifulAllAlong I might be beautiful]]!''\\
''And when you're beautiful,''\\
''it's a beautiful frickin' day!''
* Kurt may be a massive JerkJock, but the fact he's defiant as J.D. is [[spoiler: about to put a bullet through his brain]] is pretty awesome, even if it's between pleading for mercy.
--> '''Kurt''': ''STOP BEING A DICK!''
* "And there's your final bell; it's one more dance and then farewell! [[SeeYouInHell Cheek to cheek in Hell]], with a dead girl walking!" BadassBoast, thy name is Veronica!
** Made exponentially more awesome by Barrett Weed and her alt-rock pipes - never has a D-to-F transition rocked harder.
* Veronica crowdsurfing at the end of "Big Fun."
* J.D. gets his when he [[spoiler: trades his life for Veronica's due to genuinely loving her]]. Simultaneously this, a HeartwarmingMoment, and a ''massive'' TearJerker.
--> '''J.D.''': [[spoiler: [[DarkReprise Our Love]] [[TriumphantReprise Is God.]]]]
* The Final Confrontation between Heather Duke and Veronica.
--> '''HEATHER DUKE:''' You look like Hell.
--> '''VERONICA:''' (goes up to Heather Duke) I just got back. (Grabs the red scrunchie out of her hair, then brings her face close enough for a TakeThatKiss. She then raises the scrunchie in her hand as she sings) Listen up folks, war is over, brand new sheriff's come to town..."
