* 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!" Is it evil? [[MoralEventHorizon Definitely]]. But it's also a cuttingly effective TheReasonYouSuckSpeech that nearly gives Mr. Potter the last laugh until the citizens of Bedford Falls, in an awesome moment of their own, bail George out.
* 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.
