* Everytime George Bailey delivers a ShutUpHannibal to Mr. Potter (including the very first time, when he was still a kid). Mr. Potter always starts out being all {{smug|Snake}} and [[BreakThemByTalking trying to break George]] (and some others) with his words, [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstructing]] George's motives for fighting him and losing every time.
** Mr. Potter does manage to [[IronicEcho throw all of George's words back in his face]] as a buildup to the "You're worth more dead than alive!"
* As horrifying as it ended up being, Clarence's plan to make it as if George was never born is pretty cool. It starts out as a moment where it looks like it'll be nigh impossible to complete his task and earn his wings, and then he manages to pull it off by [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor using George's own words against him]].
* Harry Bailey really earned that Congressional Medal of Honor, saving a ship from kamikaze pilots.
* Sam Wainwright cables that his office is instructed to wire George up to $25,000 if he asks for it. Adjust that for inflation, today that'd be a third of a million dollars! No strings attached, no contracts to be signed, Sam trusts that George will use it wisely and pay it back.
* An unofficial one, but the "[[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x7sqx2_its-a-wonderful-life-lost-end_shortfilms lost ending]]" ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' showed once (with Dana Carvey as George and Jon Lovitz as Mr. Potter); where Uncle Billy remembers Potter took the $8,000, and Geroge then leads an [[TorchesAndPitchforks angry mob]] to Mr. Potter's office, where George, Mary and Harry all start to deliver a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown on the bastard, ''especially'' once he's revealed to be ObfuscatingDisability.
