* The scene in ''Stargate: The Ark of Truth'' in which Teal'c, LeftForDead when the rest of the group are captured by the Ori, walks all the way down the mountain with a decidedly unpleasant blast wound in his back using an Ori staff weapon as a walking stick, collapse just outside the City of Celestis, rises again and pushes on. Sure, he had some [[HealingHands help]] at that point, but getting inside the [[PathOfInspiration Path of Origin]] equivalent of the Vatican by himself? BadAss.
** This scene leads to the curious situation of a moment of FridgeLogic being a CrowningMomentOfAwesome: the audience doesn't question how Teal'c gets into what must be the most heavily guarded building in two galaxies because he's ''Teal'c'': it's what he ''does''. To Elaborate... This wasn't just his previous demonstrations of Badass in the opening of a movie, or for one or two seasons. The man has been doing this for ''ten'' seasons of ''Stargate SG-1'', and had guest appearances on ''Atlantis''. This is literally what we've been watching him do since we ''met'' him. How many other characters in ''any'' series or movie have ''that'' much background to justify something like this?
* [[spoiler:Morgan Lefay]] facing off Adria.
-->'''Adria:''' You are no match for my power!\\
'''[[spoiler:Morgan Lefay]]:''' I am ''now''.
* Teal'c's speech to Tomin deserves quoting in full for just how well it sums up his character arc:
--->'''Teal'c''': Nothing I have done since turning against the Goa'uld will make up for the atrocities I once committed in their name. Somewhere deep inside you, you knew it was wrong. A voice you did not recognise screamed for you to stop. You saw no way out. It was the way things were; they could not be changed. You tried to convince yourself the people you were hurting deserved it. You became numb to their pain and suffering. You learned to shut out the voice speaking against it.
--->'''Tomin''': There's ''always'' a choice.
--->'''Teal'c''': Indeed there is.
--->'''Tomin''': I chose to ignore it.
--->'''Teal'c''': [[HeelFaceTurn Yet you sit here now]].
--->'''Tomin''': I sit here... and I cannot imaging the day when I will forgive myself.
--->'''Teal'c''': ''[[TearJerker Because it will never come.]]'' One day others may try to convince you they have forgiven you. That is more about them than you. For them, imparting forgiveness is a blessing.
--->'''Tomin''': How do you go on?
--->'''Teal'c''': It is simple. You will ''never'' forgive yourself. Accept it. You hurt others, many others. That cannot be undone. You will never find personal retribution. But your life does not have to end; That which is right, just, and true can still prevail. If you do not fight for what you believe in, all may be lost for everyone else. But do not fight for yourself. Fight for others, others that may be saved through your effort. That is the least you can do.
* For those of us who watched the original film years ago and have followed the series since. Naturally, hearing David Arnold's full Film/{{Stargate}} [[{{Leitmotif}} overture]] for the first time since the first film can be quite moving.
